TARVER MAINTAINS INNOCENCE FOLLOWING FAILED DRUG TEST UPHELD BY NJSAC

After an administrative  hearing upheld his positive drug test yesterday, Antonio Tarver posted a video on Youtube in which he discussed how the failed test has left his boxing career in shambles. “I just left the hearing at the New Jersey State Athletic Commission. To my dismay, they upheld their findings that I failed a drug test in my last fight against Steve Cunningham [in August of 2015, it was scored a draw]… The testing company hired by the New Jersey State Athletic Commission was LabCorp.  They tested me three times the week of the fight. All tests came back negative… but the private company hired by [promoter] Lou DiBella… all their tests are claiming they found something. They still haven’t said how it got in my system.” Note: It is NOT the testing company’s burden to show how the athlete took illegal substances. Once illegal substances are detected, it is the athlete’s burden to show extenuating circumstances.  That positive test cost Tarver his job as Showtime commentator. Despite the mounting evidence against him, Tarver maintained his innocence. “I’ve asked through my lawyer four times for the same samples they claim are dirty so I can have them DNA tested… that’s the only way I can prove my innocence. They still have ignored my claim for the DNA test and will not allow me to get it tested. I’m here to tell you today that I did nothing wrong for the Cunningham fight… It’s a frame job…  I don’t know what or who is behind this crap. All I know is I’m clean! I’m clean, period!” Undermining Tarver’s credibility is the fact that this was his second failed test, as he also tested dirty after a fight against Lateef Kayode in 2012

 KHURTSIDE-LORENZO ADDED TO BROADWAY BOXING

On Wednesday, February 17th, Broadway Boxing is back at the famed B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in Times Square, New York City. Headlining the card will be Brooklyn's Amanda Serrano (26-1-1, 19 KOs) looking to claim her third world title when she takes on Canada's Olivia Gerula (17-15-2, 3 KOs) for the vacant WBO featherweight championship.  In the eight-round co-feature, middleweight Avtandil Khurtsidze (31-2-2, 20 KOs) will squares off against  Giovanni Lorenzo (34-7, 26 KOs).  Khurtsidze is currently riding an eight-bout win streak since dropping a very close decision to Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam way back in 2010 for the interim WBA middleweight title. Khurtsidze was out of action for two-and-a-half years before signing with DBE in the summer of 2014. He has since reeled off four consecutive knockout victories and was scheduled for a rematch against N'Dam in France in November. However, the day that Khurtsidze was scheduled to fly to France was the day the tragic terrorist attacks took place in Paris, and the bout was subsequently cancelled. Also seeing action, in an eight-round feature bout, will be Brooklyn's undefeated super middleweight contender Lennox Allen (20-0-1, 13 KOs) as he strives to keep his unbeaten record intact when he faces Martin Verdin (21-19-2, 11 KOs).

 WBO SANCTIONING BRADLEY-PACQUIAO IIII, BUT POISED TO ACCOMODATE ALI

Sadam Ali (22-0, 13 KOs) will fight Jessie Vargas (26-1, 9 KOs) for the vacant WBO welterweight title on March 5th in Washington, D.C. (the same show headlined by Luis Ortiz vs. Tony Thompson) with HBO broadcasting.  The WBO currently recognizes Timothy Bradley as its welterweight champion, and the sanctioning organization appears poised to follow the WBA down the sewer by recognizing multiple champions in the same division.  Bradley of course, is posed for a big money fight against Manny Pacquiao on April 9th. Bradley wrote as follows to the WBO: “As you know, I will be fighting Manny Pacquiao on April 9, 2016, in Las Vegas, NV. To accept this fight invariably means I cannot comply with my mandatory obligation and must forgo the mandatory challenger against Sadam Ali, as ordered by the WBO.  This is a difficult decision, but one I have to make to give the fans the best fights as well as allow myself the toughest and biggest fights from both a competitive and financial perspective. ”

 ANTHONY DIRRELL, FATHER OF THREE MONTH OLD TWINS

Press Release: When your job entails cracking grown men in the mouth, you need some down time. And yet that’s something that fathers of 3-month-old twins get little of. Think throwing dozens of punches per round at a moving target that’s trying to knock your block off in return is draining? Try doing that by day, then getting a couple of newborns to sleep for more than 30 minutes at a time by night. This is now Anthony Dirrell’s world. And he’s loving it.

 ARTUR ABRAHAM LOOKING FORWARD TO FIGHTING ON THE ROAD

Press Release: WBO 168-pound champion Arthur Abraham had this to say about leaving the confines of Germany to fight Gilberto Ramirez ion Las Vegas on April 9th as part of the Manny Pacquaio-Timothy Bradley undercard: “This fight is a dream come true for me.  I fought in Hollywood, Florida against Edison Miranda, against Andre Dirrell in Detroit and against Andre Ward in Carson, California.  But the flair of a big-time event was missing.  I was at Manny’s fight vs. Shane Mosley at the MGM Grand in [Las Vegas in] 2011 and the atmosphere captured my imagination.  Afterwards, it was my wish to one day step into this very ring and on April 9th, I will finally get the chance to share the spotlight with the “Pac-Man”.  I do not take a win that night for granted, as Gilberto Ramirez is a young upcoming boxer from Mexico, one of the greatest fighting countries. He wants to write history by becoming the first Mexican to win a world championship at super middleweight.  But myself being an Armenian, living and fighting out of Germany, I have two values to fight for: pride and honor.  This is going to be my greatest victory. Thank you!”

 MICKI NEILSEN TO FACE MIRKO LARGHETTI

Press Release: Danish cruiserweight Micki Nielsen (20-0, 14 KOs) will face a tough test on March 19th when he faces Italy’s Mirko Larghetti (24-1, 16 KOs) at the Albertslund MusikTeatret in Copenhagen.  Larghetti’s only loss was a failed WBO title bid against Marco Huck. Nielsen was originally scheduled to meet Giacobbe Fragomeni, but an elbow injury forced the Italian veteran to withdraw, paving the way for Larghetti. “I’m very excited and focused on this fight,” said the 33 year-old from Frontino, who has recorded three stoppage victories since losing a decision to Huck. “This is a big opportunity for me. Micki Nielsen is one of the best cruiserweight prospects around, and by beating him, I will prove I’m ready for another world title challenge. “I will be preparing for this fight like it’s a world title fight, training hard with my coach Mario Massai in Civitavecchia, who I’m sure will deliver me the right instructions on the night.”

 HERRING WINS BIG OVER FLORES

Jamal Herring W10 Luis E. Flores… Jamel Herring (15-0, 8 KOs) had Luis Eduardo Flores (21-3, 17 KOs) measured from the jump, easily sliding back out of range from his opponent’s powerful rights throughout their 135-pound clash at the Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The fifth round was Herring’s best of the night, as he notched two knockdowns against the taller opponent. The first knockdown came on a left hook to the body that seemed to involve some tangling of feet. Flores didn’t appear seriously hurt, but Herring again caught him moments later, this time with a right hook to the ear that buckled Flores, who touched his gloves to the mat before bouncing up. “The check hook caught him off balance [on the second knockdown]. His footing was out of place, and I took full advantage of it and got the knockdown,” Herring said. “I made him miss off his mistakes. He was throwing wide shots. I stepped to the side and threw the check hook.” The Colombian, making his U.S. debut, never really had any answers for Herring’s superior footwork, better distance or sharp counterpunching. When it was over, the judges saw it as crystal clear, giving Herring a ten-round unanimous decision by scores of 100-88 (twice) and 99-89.

 UNDERCARD RESULTS FROM BETHLEHEM, PA

Welterweight Alex Martin (12-0, 5 KOs) remained unbeaten in a one-sided affair against Rossemberth Gomez (17-5-1, 13 KOs). Gomez was bloody and battered after eight unanimous, near-shutout rounds, with just two 79-73 cards keeping Gomez on the board. The third judge saw it 80-72 for Martin…  Lightweight Raynell Williams ran his record to 11-0 with 5 KOs by defeating Gabriel Tolmajyan (14-5-2, 3 KOs). Williams had some trouble, though, as a last-round attack from the Armenian saw Williams get caught with a straight left that had him dazed. Tolmajyan couldn’t finish the job, though, and Williams recovered to lock down the unanimous decision. Source: premiere boxing champions

MORALDE MAKING NOISE IN THE PHILIPPINES

The WBF-sanctioned fight will headline a show promoted by Sanman Promotions at the Gaisano Mall of Gensan. “I usually don’t take my opponents lightly, but I know I will be victorious in this fight. I have confidence in my ability, and I know that I will soon be a world champion,” said Moralde when the match-up was announced. Age 21, Moralde turned pro at seventeen in 2011, and won the Philippines national crown at 122 pounds in 2014. He moved up to featherweight in 2015. Fighting out of Cebu City, Sabalde is a southpaw who is also confident but a bit more humble in his approach, saying, “Lets just see who gets knocked out during the fight. This is the biggest fight of my career, and I am up against a tough opponent. This is a very important fight for me, and I will do everything possible to win.”
