Bermane vs. Wilder … WBC heavyweight title

 Bermane vs. Wilder ... WBC heavyweight title

By Tom Donelson / Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA)

Deontay Wilder takes on Bermane Stiverne in an event that is totally unusual; an American in a heavyweight bout that means something.   Stiverne’s WBC heavyweight title is on the line and the undefeated Wilder has the opportunity to win a heavyweight, something no Americans have done since Shannon Briggs defeated Siarhei Liakovich for Liakovich WBO title nearly nine years ago.

Martinez 191x300 In Rustys Corner
The fight is a challenging one to predict. The one thing we can say with reasonable certainty is that it will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on October 18.

This is a fight between the strong European power puncher Genedy Golovkin and veteran Marco Antonio Rubio.

Once again, short and not-so sweet in this summer heat!

Rematch time.

Marco Maidana, who almost beat undefeated Floyd Mayweather in their previous match, now takes on the multi time champion in a rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 13.

A lot of folks thought Maidana had won their previous fight, although I was not one of them.

In their last battle, Maidana who is a puncher/brawler goaded Mayweather into a brawl, and Mayweather took the bait and decided to brawl with a brawler. That stupid decision almost cost him dearly.

All Mayweather had to do than, and now, is play hit and run and he’s going to give Maidana (and the fans) a very long night.

16 Aug In Rustys Corner

This week, from Carson Cal. and televised on ShowTime, a very interesting and probably very exciting boxing card.

The main event features two undefeated welterweights, Kell Brook from the United Kingdom will take on Shawn Porter.

Brook, is 28 and boast a record of 32-0 with 22 knockouts. It’s impressive but his list of foes do to qualify as a who’s who in the welterweight division. This fight will give him the recognition and acceptance that he belongs.

Short and not-so sweet in this summer heat!

First, please sent out prayers for boxing good guy and my good friend Johnny “The Downey Flash” Ortiz. Johnny, who I have known for many years, is a compassionate human being.

His organs are shutting down and he’s in a hospice in Southern California. He’s a battler, but this one, even with our prayers, will be hard to overcome. Hang in there Johnny; a lot of great people are in your corner.

I also request prayers for the mother of Eva Futch (widow of Eddie), who is suffering from cancer. It would mean a lot to her to know that we’re all lining up as her entourage.***
