Eddie Hearn on 'disappointing' rumours for Tyson Fury's next fight – dazn.com

Published

on





The Matchroom promoter has had his say.
Tyson Fury is set to fight Francis Ngannou in a ‘no knockdown’ exhibition clash, according to rumours discussed by Eddie Hearn.
Ngannou left the UFC ahead of a switch to PFL, but he was first expected to entertain a crossover fight before returning to MMA.
WBC champion Fury has no mandatory obligations and his proposed undisputed fight with Ukrainian unified champion appears no closer to being arranged. 
Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren promised a ‘game changing’ next fight for his fighter, and an exhibition with Ngannou would certainly be novel.
Speaking to Boxing Social, promoter Eddie Hearn discussed the rumours he had heard. 
He said: “Yes, I believe so [It will be Francis Ngannou], this is what I’ve heard. It will apparently be an exhibition, no knockdowns or anything – I don’t know, I’m only telling you what I’ve heard and that is apparently going to be the next fight.
“Disappointing, but it is what it is. It’ll be a big event but I wanted to see him fight Usyk, it would be nice to get an undisputed champion, but Tyson is in charge of his own career and I’m sure he’s going to make a load of money and good luck to him.”

Published

on





The IBF’s 38th Annual Convention will kick off this weekend at The Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park, in Chicago, Illinois from May 28 – June 1, 2023. After 38 years, the organization will be returning to the Midwest to celebrate the IBF’s 40th year. The IBF celebrated its 2nd Annual Convention in Dearborn, Michigan in 1985 and a return to the region is long overdue. “We are excited for this milestone event and are looking forward to gathering with the boxing community in Chicago and the Midwest,” said IBF President Daryl Peoples.
During the convention the IBF hosts several events and seminars. Notably, the IBF also presents annual awards at each convention, and proudly announces its top award recipients for 2022 to be presented at the Awards Banquet closing the organization’s convention festivities on Wednesday, May 31, 2023. The IBF is proud to announce some of it’s top awards for 2022 in anticipation of the upcoming convention.
Jersey Joe Walcott Award
The Jersey Joe Walcott Award, the organization’s highest honor, will go to Naoya Inoue. In spectacular fashion, Inoue unified the Bantamweight division with a second-round knockout win over Nonito Donaire. Naoya won the IBF title in 2019 and defended six times.
Female Fighter of the Year
Receiving the IBF Female Fighter of the Year Award is Chantelle Cameron who unified the Female Jr. Welterweight division. Cameron put on an exciting performance when she beat Undisputed Welterweight Champion Jessica McCaskill by unanimous decision and became the Undisputed Champion in the division.
Fight of the Year
IBF– Sivenathi Nontshinga vs. Hector Flores
Female – Katie Taylor vs. Amada Serrano
Intercontinental – Mark Heffron vs. Lennox Clarke
USBA – Robeisy Ramirez vs. Abraham Nova
Jessica McCaskill and Murodjon Akhmadaliev are recieving Championship Rings for 3 successful title defenses.
“We proudly celebrate the notable achievements and remarkable careers of our champions, and the boxers that participated in IBF title fights. These are very well-deserved distinctions as all these fighters have worked incredibly hard to attain these accomplishments. We look forward to celebrating them,” noted Daryl Peoples.

Boxing News: Fight Week » September 27, 2023 – Fight News

Big weekend coming up with four of the top welterweights not named Terence Crawford or Errol Spence seeing action.
FRIDAY
DAZN kicks things off with unbeaten WBO #3, WBA #11, WBC #12 super middleweight Diego Pacheco (18-0, 15 KOs) will take on Manuel Gallegos (19-1-1, 16 KOs) from the Cintermex in Monterrey, NL, Mexico. Pacheco is a 20:1 favorite.
SATURDAY
DAZN is back for the second consecutive night with a mouth-watering clash between unbeaten WBA regular welterweight champion Eimantas Stanionis (14-0, 9 KOs) and WBA #1 Vergil Ortiz Jr. (19-0, 19 KOs) at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. Ortiz is a 4:1 favorite to dethrone Stanionis.
Showtime delivers undefeated IBF interim welterweight champion Jaron “Boots” Ennis (30-0, 27 KOs) defending against IBF top-rated Roiman Villa (26-1, 24 KOs) from the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. Ennis is a 13:1 favorite.
ESPN+ offers up exciting former world champion and current WBC #2 super bantamweight Luis Nery (34-1, 26 KOs) against Froilan Saludar (33-6-1, 23 KOs) from the fairground in Metepec, Mexico (90 minutes west of Mexico City). Nery is a 12:1 favorite.
Stanionis vs Ortiz is a cracking matchup. I wonder if Virgil’s momentum will be disrupted by illness. I guess we’ll see on Saturday.
Not anymore because Ortiz pulled out with his fake disease of not being able to make weight again. He did this last minute again to the Lithuanian. He should be sued and banned from the sport. Scumbag!
One of these days Boots is gonna walk all over Crawford and Spence. There’s starting to be a lot of buzz on how good Boots is, but I think he’s even better than advertised. Like Spence and Crawford, he boxes on a different level and has an extremely high boxing IQ as they say. It’s not just his speed, power, experience, and skills; he’s a thinking man and knows exactly what he’s doing. I just hope he doesn’t continue to be avoided.
The thing with boots is he seems to leave himself open for shots. Hopefully he corrects that.
Kris…I have to agree with you about Boots….Boots is “special”…..of course time could change that…but watching his fight against Karen Chukhadzhian…studying that fight …I saw something special…and Karen is as tough fighter and Karen maybe a future world champion..very good skills…guys In my opinion Boots is really good…on that level of “special”….
Best of luck to both stanionis and Ortiz. I like both so I’ll be happy for the winner and bummed out for the loser.
SATURDAY
Showtime delivers undefeated IBF interim welterweight champion Jaron “Boots” Ennis (30-0, 27 KOs) defending against IBF top-rated Roiman Villa (26-1, 24 KOs).
– Not shown on the FightNews “Upcoming TV Fights”.
ESPN+ offers up exciting former world champion and current WBC #2 super bantamweight Luis Nery (34-1, 26 KOs) against Froilan Saludar (33-6-1, 23 KOs) from the fairground in Metepec, Mexico (90 minutes west of Mexico City). Nery is a 12:1 favorite.
– Same as above.
– I see FightNews added these bouts to their schedule…..
I’ll be watching the Ennis vs Villa fight as I do not have DAZN, but subscribe to SHO. Can’t go wrong either one, two solid fights. Boots vs. Ortiz, make it happen powerbrokers after they both come out victorious this weekend.
I think Stanionis – Ortiz has the potential to be a fight of the year candidate. That match has seemed cursed with all the postponements, but barring a blowout either way (which I don’t see happening but is possible), I don’t know how those two get together without it being a great fight.
Sooner or later one of the top guys at welterweight will have to face Ennis, now, if Ortiz defeat Stanionis many will be asking for Ortiz vs Ennis, exceopt Oscar DE La Hoya, no way that will happen.If not the Crawford vs Spence winner, but rather the winner of Thurman vs Ugas could be excellent

Teens arrested following fight at Canfield Fair | News, Sports, Jobs – SalemNews.net

Published

Sep 5, 2023
CANFIELD — Four juveniles were arrested Sunday evening at the Canfield Fair following a fight in which officers say they became combative with one another and also with law enforcement.
Mahoning County Sheriff Jerry Greene on Monday said sheriff’s deputies on patrol at the fair responded to the fight before 10:30 p.m. Sunday.
He said the teens were being “combative and disruptive” while engaged in fighting and were “uncooperative and rowdy” with law enforcement at the scene.
Greene said four teens ages 13, 15, 15 and 16 who were involved in the fight were taken into custody, and a fifth teen at the scene also was cited and will be summoned into Mahoning County Juvenile Court.
He said the teens face charges of aggravated rioting, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
Greene said he did not know why the juveniles were fighting. Overall, he said in addition to this fight that he characterized as “large,” there have been few other minor fights and altercations at this year’s Canfield Fair.
Security has become a more significant focus at this year’s fair following a brawl and reports that one teen possessed a gun during the 2022 fair.
Leading up to this year’s fair, meetings on safety and security have been held for several months among the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Ohio Homeland Security, the Youngstown Police Bomb Squad and Task Force, Canfield police, Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office, Cardinal Joint Fire District and fire departments from throughout the county.
Mahoning County Court Judge Scott Hunter, a fair director in charge of security, previously said extensive training and uniformed police presence has been stepped up this year.
