– Thankfully the Klitschko brothers have moved on from David Haye for a little while. Not that I didn’t want one (or both) of them to get a crack at the big-mouthed Brit, but it’s all a bit much now.
Wladimir called Haye a “liar” and has met with, and most likely will fight, Tomasz Adamek in September. At the very least Adamek will be fighting a Klitschko per Kathy Duva;
“If for some reason Wladimir can’t fight in September, Vitali will be the opponent. The September date is the key because that is when the new stadium will open. This is a very big deal in all of Europe because the Wroclaw stadium, which is located on the border of Poland and Germany and not too far from Ukraine, is one of four currently being built to accommodate the 2012 European Soccer Championships.”
– While Wladimir lines up his, possible, fight with Adamek, brother Vitali has signed a contract to face Odlanier Solis on March 19 in Germany.
– Per Dan Rafael’s twitter account;
I agree with Rafael wholeheartedly here. This is a ridiculous fight and to say I’m excited for it is a tremendous understatement. Fernando Montiel facing Nonito Donaire is an all action fight. Probably will be a lot of blood too. Blood always makes a match more exciting!
– The WBC has, rightfully, ordered a rematch between light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal and former champion Bernard Hopkins.
Per WBC president Jose Sulaiman;
“The WBC board of governors has voted in favor of ordering the immediate rematch between WBC champion Jean Pascal and emeritus champion Bernard Hopkins for the WBC light heavyweight championship of the world,” WBC president Jose Sulaiman wrote to the camps. “The winner of this fight has the obligation to fight Chad Dawson immediately without any intervening contest.”
