Adamek - Mormeck in the works? | Orange Sport

Jean Marc Mormeck says that he's come to an agreement for his next bout, which would be against Tomasz Adamek, likely in October.  The fight could end up on U.S. soil, if it's not just hot air.  Polish news sources haven't picked up on it yet, so it may just be Mormeck talking big as usual.

Archie Ray Marquez arrested | KRQE

The undefeated prospect was supposed to fight on this weekend's Dzinziruk-Dawson undercard, but has pulled out after being arrested for domestic violence.  No word on what fight will take its spot on the televised undercard, but Lateef Kayode vs. Jose Luis Herrera is probably a pretty safe bet for that.
