 LOOKING BACK ON THE LATE TOMMY MORRISON
By Benny Henderson, Jr.

Many who may read this may wonder why I am writing about Tommy Morrison, the former WBO heavweight champion who left this world seven months ago. I have my reasons for not writing a tribute to Tommy around the time of his death, but now at this time, I feel the need to take the time out and not only pay homage to the fighter known as Tommy “The Duke” Morrison, but, to the man I came to know as Tommy. At this juncture in my life, I am not one to look upon mortal men and call many, if any, a hero.

 RUBIN "HURRICANE" CARTER, 1937-2014

The International Boxing Hall of Fame, and Boxingtalk.com, join the worldwide boxing community in mourning the loss of 1960s middleweight contender Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, who passed away on Sunday, April 20th in Toronto at age 76 after a battle with prostate cancer. Carter, a New Jersey native who posted a 27-12-1 record that includes wins over George Benton and Emile Griffith, was in attendance in Canastota, New York when the Hall of Fame officially opened in June 1989. Although he had an excellent career as a boxer, Carter lost his only world title shot and is best known for spending more than fifteen years in a New Jersey prison for murders he did not commit. His unjust imprisonment became a cause celebre embraced by Muhammad Ali, a community of Canadians who fought incessantly for justice, and of course, rock and roll legend Bob Dylan, who brilliantly encapsulated Carter's story, including the racial overtones of his unjust convictions, in an eight-and-a-half minute song. He was finally released from prison in the 1980s and relocated from New Jersey to Toronto. A movie was made about his life. “We were saddened to learn the news of Hurricane Carter’s passing and we offer our condolences to his family and friends,” said Hall director Edward Brophy. --Scott Shaffer

VETYEKA TO DEFEND WORLD FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP VS. DONAIRE ON A VERY BUSY MAY 31ST

Press Release: Top Rank will promote a show featuring three featherweight title  fights at The Venetian Macao in China on Saturday, May 31st. The main event features the true featherweight world champion, Simpiwe Vetyeka, defending his championship against the Philippine's Nonito Donaire.

On the same card, the WBA's "regular" fetherweight titlist, Nicholas Walters of Jamaica, faces another lower-division ex-champion, Vic Darchinyan.

 ANDERSON CLAYTON TO FIGHT IN FRANCE NEXT MONTH

Press Release: Brazilian junior middleweight Anderson “Pantera” Clayton is set to face Sebastien “Coco” Madani in a rematch in Rumilly, France on May 3rd.  In their original fight, in April 2013, Madani was stopped on a cut in the second round, and a rematch was basically agreed upon before the boxers left the ring. However, for various reasons it is only coming to fruition now. Clayton (42-8), has one one fight since then: last October he won a technical decision over Argentina's Dario Fabian Pucheta in front of 10,000 fans in a home-coming fight in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The French Madani (35-2), has also only fought once since his unlucky night against Clayton, as he won an unspectacular unanimous decision over journeyman Stanislav Sakic in December. Clayton-Madani II will be sanctioned by the WBF and promoted by Europrom.

HOPKINS CONTINUES TO CONQUER FATHER TIME
By Rick Evans

Bernard Hopkins scored another victory over father time on Saturday night at the Armory in Washington DC, unifying the IBF and WBA light heavyweight championships by putting on a virtuoso performance in what was ridiculously called a split decision victory over Beibut Shumenov. The first three rounds lacked volume as both fighters exchanged jabs and took their time doing it. The action picked up in round four as Hopkins found the key to what would take him to victory, the lead right hand, picking Shumenov apart as he was coming in. The middle rounds followed an identical pattern with Shumenov throwing one punch at a time and getting drilled with the lead right hand for his troubles. Round eleven was the most exciting round of the fight as Shumenov attempted to pick up the pace  and paid for it with a counter overhand right that put him down for the only official knockdown of the fight. The knockdown seemed to take the fight out of Shumeov as he reverted to his prior strategy of following Hopkins, but only throwing one punch at a time.  Judges Dave Moretti (116-111) and Jerry Roth (116-11) were the only two judges who were paying attention. Guestavo Padilla (113-114) scored the fight for Shumenov and at best had a very bad night at the office or at worst should fall to the ranks of CJ Ross with that disgraceful scorecard. Nothing should take away from the victory of Bernard Hopkins, who now holds two of the three major world title belts at light heavyweight and is targeting the man who holds the third and is considered to be the lineal world champion, Adonis Stevenson. Hopkins moves to 55-6-2 32KO with the victory and at 49 becomes the oldest man to unify two world title belts. Shumenov falls to 14-2 9KO with the loss.
