CHARR WINS WHEN GRANT REMAINS ON STOOL

Manuel Charr TKO5 Michael Grant... In Moscow, heavyweight Manuel Charr defeated Michael Grant when Grant did not come out for the sixth round. Charr was winning the fight easily, but Grant landed many good combinations of his own, particularly to Charr's body. Having taken the fight on short notice, Grant's problem was lack of conditioning. He was exhausted and dispirited, turning his back to Charr on more than one occasion.  Now 48-6, the 42 year-old Grant hasn't won a fight since 2011 and unless he can relocate the motivation he lacked against Charr, would be best off calling it a career. Grant had a great run in the 1990s but was stopped by Lennox Lewis in a world championship fight in 2000. --Scott haffer

 DAILY BREAD FRIDAY EDITION:(10-24-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Speaking of Terry Norris, Nicholas Walters' win over Nonito Donaire this weekend reminded me of Norris' win over [an aged] Ray Leonard. Not particularly in style but in significance. No, Nonito isn't/wasn't on Leonard's level but this was still a case of a star in the twilight of his career running into a young LION and my eyes tell me that LION will be doing some serious ROARING over the next few years. I love how Walters was brave enough to taste Nonito's power and once he knew he could handle it... GAME OVER. In approach, he reminded me of a young Ike Quartey. That playful and almost distained sneer and warrior's approach was nice! I look forward to seeing him conquer more divisions/careers.

 WAIT... WHAT? ORTIZ NEEDED TO CHEAT TO BEAT KAYODE???

After stopping Lateef Kayode very quickly in September, heavyweight Luis Ortiz returned a positive post-fight drug test for the steroid nandrolone, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission. [Editor's note: The bout was for a ridiculous WBA paper title, its interim championship despite the fact that the WBA recognizes two other heavyweight champions. Kayode is not even a legitimate heavyweight and Ortiz, like anyone else claiming to be a contender, should be able to defeat Kayode without resorting to cheating]. According to Kayode's promoter, Greg Cohen, the WBA and the Nevada State Athletic Commission have a clear duty to protect Kayode, should the positive test be confirmed by the Nevada in an upcoming hearing. Cohen wants Ortiz's [paper] interim title stripped. source: Greg Cohen Promotions

WARD LAWSUIT AGAINST GOOSSEN ALLOWED TO CONTINUE
By Scott Shaffer

World super middleweight champion Andre Ward will be allowed to continue his lawsuit against his recently deceased promoter Dan Goossen and Goossen's company, Goossen Tutor Promotions, LLC. Ward is seeking damages resulting from Goossen’s alleged violation of the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act, which requires promoters to make certain financial disclosures to their boxers. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in the Northern District of California, also seeks an accounting of Goossen's profits from several boxing matches. The defendants asked the federal court to compel the arbitration of Ward’s claims, but this week, the court ruled in Ward's favor, meaning the dispute will continue to be litigated in federal court as opposed to private arbitration.

 AMATEUR BOXER ATTACKS REFEREE
By Scott Shaffer

An amateur boxer from Croatia named Vido Loncar, reacted to a premature stoppage by pummeling the referee. The referee stopped the fight without incident, and Loncar returned to his corner and had his headgear and one glove removed. But as Loncar approached the referee for the reading of the verdict, the referee said something to Loncar and Loncar beat him viciously even when the referee fell to the ground. Loncar deserves a lifetime suspension for this despicable act.
