KELL BROOK PLANS TO FIGHT AGAIN IN 2017

Press Release: After his second eye socket fracture, former IBF welterweight Kell Brook of England has vowed to return to the ring by the end of 2017 after a successful operation on his fractured right eye socket.

MARSHALL KAUFFMAN TALKS CINTRON-BRUNSON, JUNE 24 EVENT AND MORE
By G. Leon

GL: The Kermit Cintron-Tyrone Brunson fight is on deck this weekend. Can you give us some thoughts on that fight and the rest of the card? Cintron-Brunson is a fight that in my opinion has the makings to be one of the best fights in the history of Pennsylvania. They're both knockout artists and they're both desperate in my opinion and they both have to be successful. I think Cintron has more to lose than Brunson, being a former two time world champion and being that he's fought much better opposition, there's a lot riding on his shoulders to be victorious. What's great about the fight is the winner is going to be in the top 15 in the world by the IBF. Cintron is currently rated number one by the USBA. It's fireworks, it really is, it's the kind of fight that as a fan I want to see. It's two knockout artists and I think somebody is about to get knocked out.

RIGONDEAUX'S WIN LIKELY TO BE CHANGED TO NO CONTEST

According to ESPN, Saturday's first-round knockout win credited to world 122-pound champion Guillermo Rigondeaux against Moises Flores will likely be changed to a no contest. In the closing seconds of the first round, Rigondeaux (pictured) held Flores behind the head and hit him with a knock out punch after the bell. After a ten minute delay, referee Vic Drakulich spoke to NSAC Bob Bennett and fellow referee Robert Byrd. Drakulich eventually looked at a replay, but the replay lacked audio so the initial ruling was that a legal punch ended the fight. Bennett and Drakulich have since studied the video and changed their position, with Bennett telling ESPN that "Vic drafted a statement that has been provided to [Nevada State Athletic Commission] chairman [Anthony] Marnell and the other commissioners. They will also be provided with a copy of the fight, and next Monday morning we will have a commission meeting, where the result will be changed in accordance with Nevada code," Bennett said. --Scott Shaffer

Alexander on Arias: Nothing about him concerns me

GL: Congrats on your victory, can you give us some thoughts on your performance? I thought I did pretty good man. I went in there and worked on a lot of things that I was working on in the gym, taking my time, shooting my shots and working the ring. I feel like I did pretty good at showing what I've been working on. GL: Before the fight you said Pena was a guy you wanted to get out of there, how do you feel now that you've accomplished that goal? I feel that anytime I get in the ring I always make a statement because I'm going to adapt to whoever they put in there.  At this stage, the first couple of rounds I just wanted to work on a lot of things I've worked on in the gym. As I continue to do the things I do in the gym the better it's going to be for me in terms of getting better dudes out of there by sticking to the game plan.

When he switched southpaw he caught me with a punch that knocked my mouthpiece out and I was like, wow, this kid could punch. In round three I changed the plan to box and stop looking for the knockout. I started to box and work the body and then the knockout came.

THE END OF THE ROAD FOR BEIBUT SHUMENOV?

According to a WBA news letter, Beibut Shumenov of Kazakhstan may have reached the end of his career. Shumenov is 17-2 for his pro career, and has held WBA secondary belts at both 175 and 200 pounds. But he has not fought in more than a year since defeating Junior Wright.  On Monday, the WBA championship committee released the following ruling: "it was made public the relinquishment of the division regular champion, Beibut Shumenov because he can no longer fight based on medical recommendation after suffering an injury to the eye. For that reason, it was decided to promote [third tier or interim titlist] Yunier Dórticos [of Cuba], who was supposed to fight Shumenov, from interim to regular champion more than a year ago without fighting, eliminating the interim title. Second, [super champion] Denis Lebedev was authorized to fight Australia's Mark Flanagan for the for the cruiserweight super championship. However, the winner must fight Dorticos in 120 days, to have only one champion in this division. Note: the WBA disgracefully continues to ignore the fact that Lebedev was knocked out by Murat Gassiev in his last fight. Gassiev holds the IBF championship.

Even though she was a late replacement, she had a fight scheduled for herself on the following night so she came to challenge herself. Claressa is just a super athlete and a tremendous fighter. She did a great, great job in capturing the belt. We're working on something very significant for her that should be announced in the coming days.
