Carl Froch's unification bout with Andre Ward is postponed

Next month's unification bout between Carl Froch and Andre Ward has been postponed after Ward suffered an eye injury in training.

Californian WBA champion Ward revealed on Thursday that he'd suffered a cut on *******.

He said: "Bad News: I sustained a cut in sparring a few hours ago, flew to LA to see the Doc. I got seven stitches, will let you know the new date soon."

A new date is yet to be confirmed but is likely to be in December.

The duo were set to fight in the Super Six Final in Atlantic City, New Jersey on 29 October.

WBC super-middleweight champion Froch also turned to the social networking site to reveal his frustration.

He tweeted: "Sorry to all my loyal fans, but it seems five weeks isn't enough time to heal a scratch!"

Froch's promoter Matchroom Sport said: "The Showtime 360 Fight Camp (television crew) were filming the session and made the trip to the hospital where he was advised by the doctor that he would not be fit to fight on October 29."

Promoter Eddie Hearn added: "Obviously it is frustrating.

"Carl's camp has gone perfectly and we were ready to unify the titles on October 29.

"Carl is in the shape of his life but he is a true professional and will take this in his stride and be ready for victory on a date given in 2011."

Froch was first crowned WBC super-middleweight champion in December 2008, when he beat Canadian Jean Pascal. He went on to retain the title twice before losing on points to Mikkel Kessler in April 2010.

He regained the title seven months later when he was named the undisputed winner against Arthur Abraham in Helsinki

Japanese Takashi Uchiyama maintained his unbeaten record and defended his WBA super-featherweight title for a fourth time with a comprehensive 11th-round stoppage of Mexican Jorge Solis in Yokohama.
The WBA champion sent Solis to the canvas with a final left hook and referee Roberto Ramirez immediately stopped the contest so he could receive medical attention.

Brawler Solis had suffered a cut in the seventh round and also been the recipient of several brutal combinations in the Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium. He was also floored in the second - controversially ruled a slip - and survived a barrage in the fifth that had him reeling on the ropes.

Uchiyama improves to 18-0(15) while Solis, who was stopped in eight rounds by Manny Pacquiao at the weight in 2007, now stands on 40-4-2(29) with one no contest.

Orthodox fighter Uchiyama had taken an 11-month break from boxing after dislocating his right hand and breaking two fingers against Takashi Miura last January.

"While my right hand was recovering, I concentrated on honing my left hand. My jab and left hook have become better than previously," he explained.

"I’m happy that I could finish with my secret weapon, as I trained my left hand strenuously."

Solis, who also boxes with an orthodox stance, said: "Uchiyama is a good champion, as he can punch hard and was also skilful and fast. I admit I lost tonight. When I woke up after the knockdown, people were looking me down. Then I realised I [had] lost.

"But I’ll continue fighting."

On the undercard, Celestino Caballero made the first defence of his WBA featherweight belt with a unanimous decision over home fighter Satoshi Hosono.

Panama's Caballero is now 36-4(23) and Hosono 21-2(15) after the scorecards were announced, which read: 118-109 (twice) and 116-110.

Japanese Kazuto Ioka remained unbeaten to retain his WBC strawweight crown after a first-round TKO of Yodgoen Tor Chalermchai.

It was Ioka's (9-0[6]) second defence of the title, and Thai Chalermchai's (8-1) first professional defeat.

Danny Price: British title the target


DANNY PRICE IS RIGHT FOR PRO RANKS

By Mark Staniforth, Press Association Sport


Fate has decreed that Scarborough heavyweight Danny Price will be no more than an interested spectator when his former amateur team-mates take pride of place in the London 2012 Olympics next summer.

Price knew his push to reach the Games had effectively come to an end when he was relegated from the Great Britain podium squad after a disappointing defeat in the European Championships in June.

It signalled the end of a colourful amateur career for Price, in which he won two ABA heavyweight titles and missed out on qualifying for the Beijing Olympics by a single point.

Turning professional was an inevitability for Price, and he wasted no time in signing terms with Frank Maloney, who is also masterminding the careers of his namesake David, plus Beijing bronze medallist Tony Jeffries.

Price said: "I signed for Frank on the recommendation of my old team-mates. I felt comfortable after I met him. The first 18 months of my career will be a learning curve, but within two years I will be British champion."

Never regarded as an explosive puncher, Price is instead regarded as an intelligent, patient fighter who clearly possesses the temperament and adaptability required to be a success in the paid ranks.

And, campaigning initially at least in the cruiserweight division, there is little else out there to pose a significant threat to his desire be crowned British champion within his stated timeframe.

Price made his professional debut in low-key fashion in Bolton in October, when he stopped hapless Slovenian Michal Tomko with 41 seconds remaining in the opening round.

He was given a better test in his second fight in Peterlee in December, when he won all four rounds on the judges' cards against Zimbabwe's Hastings Rasani, a veteran of 92 professional fights.

Never the type to join some of his former amateur team-mates in shouting their future greatness from the rooftops, a professional start away from the limelight is exactly how Price will have liked it.

He has plenty of time and certainly enough talent to ease relatively anonymously up the rankings and take the domestic cruiserweight crown. At the point, Price may have to grudgingly come to terms with the fact that he is no longer domestic boxing's best kept secret.

Andrew Selby: Heading for London


SELBY LONDON-BOUND AFTER GREAT YEAR

By Mark Staniforth, Press Association Sport


Chances are that if, a year ago, you had marked Andrew Selby down as one of Great Britain's best Olympic boxing medal prospects, you would have been accused of taking too many blows to the head.

The Welsh flyweight had suffered a dismal year, losing in the Commonwealth Games to bitter rival Haroon Khan, then dropping a decision to Tommy Stubbs in the GB Championship finals in Liverpool.

Beset by weight worries, it seemed much more likely that Selby would be forced to give up his Olympic dream and ease into the professional ranks - particularly as Khalid Yafai looked a shoo-in for the 52kg Olympic slot.

But something clearly stirred in Selby at the start of 2011, and it was something so spectacular it almost resulted in him sweeping the board of major international honours, as well as eclipsing Yafai for the flyweight spot.

First, Selby skated to the European title in Turkey, improving on a previous record of two bronze medals in the same competition, before coming agonisingly close to adding the world title later in the year in Baku.

Selby was beaten by a single point in the final by Russian world number one Misha Aloyan, denying him 2012 qualification until he came home to comprehensively beat Yafai and finally earn his ticket to the London Games.

A painfully shy 23-year-old from Barry, he is unlikely to present much of a poster boy image in the Olympic build-up, but must nevertheless be regarded as one of Team GB's best bets for gold.

A lightning-fast, back-foot fighter who darts in to throw punches in clusters, Selby has clearly mastered the new amateur scoring system quicker than most, and it is paying spectacular dividends.

With his confidence sky-high, and with such a consistent year behind him, Selby will probably start favourite even in such a notoriously tough weight division at which so many of the Asian nations in particular excel.

In a stellar year for the Selby family, Andrew's brother Lee ended the year the British and Commonwealth featherweight champion. For Andrew, next year promises to get even better.

Donaire sinks Montiel earlier this year


DONAIRE STEPPING UP

Filipino star Nonito Donaire will bid to win a world title at a fourth different weight in February.

The 'Filipino Flash' will step up to super-bantamweight to fight Wilfredo Vazquez Jr for the vacant WBO title.

Donaire has risen up most pundits' pound-for-pound ratings in recent times.

Having destroyed Fernando Montiel in two rounds in February, his most recent win came against **** Andres Narvaez in October when he defended his WBO and WBC bantamweight titles.

The 29-year-old, who previously held world titles at flyweight and super-flyweight, and will now meet Vazquez, a former holder of the WBO super-bantam crown.

The Puerto Rican lost the belt to Jorge Arce in May but bounced back with a third-round stoppage of Roberto Leyva in October.

On the same bill, which will take place in San Antonio, Texas, on February 4, Mexico's Julio Cesar Chavez Jr will defend his WBC middleweight belt against Marco Antonio Rubio.

It will be Rubio's second tilt at a world title - he previously lost to Kelly Pavlik in 2009.

Amir Khan: Appealing against result of his fight


KHAN'S CAMP SEEK 'NO-CONTEST' VERDICT

Amir Khan's promoter Richard Schaefer has demanded the result of the British fighter's controversial bout with Lamont Peterson last month be changed to a no-contest in light of alleged scoring improprieties.

Schaefer insists he now knows the identity of the so-called "mystery man" who was present at the judges' table during the controversial fight, which home favourite Peterson won via a split decision.

Describing the evidence he has gathered as "astonishing and shocking", Schaefer said either a no-contest should be declared - leading to Khan being handed back his titles - or an immediate rematch ordered.

Schaefer told Sky Sports News: "What I think would be the right thing to do would be a no-contest and therefore Amir would retain both titles.

"I do believe there is enough controversy to warrant the no-contest decision.

"At the very least I think both sanctioning organisations (the World Boxing Association and the International Boxing Federation) should order an immediate rematch and the two fighters can settle the score in the ring."

WBA vice-president Gilberto Mendoza added his voice to calls for a rematch but the IBF - whom Schaefer said "closed not one eye but both eyes and let him (the "mystery man") sit there" - declined to comment.

The IBF's public relations director Jeanette Salazar said: "At this point in time we have been advised by our lawyers not to speak out in order to keep the integrity of the [IBF] hearing which is scheduled on January 18."

Khan had brought the issue to light with a series of tweets relating to the man's movement around the judges' table in the course of the fight. The DC Boxing and Wrestling Commission say they have no idea who the man is.

Mendoza told BBC Sport: "There should be a direct rematch of this fight. You have to guarantee fairness, you have to guarantee that no one who isn't directly involved can sit at the table."

Peterson's trainer and manager Barry Hunter was reluctant to discuss the latest developments, but was saddened that the controversy surrounding the fight had taken away from his man's achievement.

He would not commit to a rematch and criticised the Khan camp for making excuses.

"Before this guy, this mystery man, it was about the referee, it was about the judges, what next?" he told Sky Sports News.

"My thing is we need to get back to boxing. We have to step back and see what's best for Lamont and what's best for his future as champion."

Although Khan has been vociferous in his criticism of the decision that cost him his titles, he says that he craves a rematch with Peterson more than having the result of the fight changed.

Khan told Sky Sports News: "That's what we want. I've asked for the fight, I've asked for the rematch and I'm not getting an answer back from Lamont Peterson's team.

"We've offered him a lot of money, there's a lot of money been put on the table for him to take the rematch. I really think the whole world thinks I deserve this rematch because I know I was treated unfairly.

"I've asked for the reason and I'm getting no answer. That's the reason I'm getting desperate now.

"That's the reason I went on ******* and I put the tweets up.

"I just want another chance somewhere neutral just to prove to my fans that I am the real champion and I won the fight."

Khan's business manager Asif Vali told Press Association Sport: "There are four or five different things that require answers and my job is to ensure we get those answers.

"I want to know the reason this person sat there and what's going on. We did the table plan with Golden Boy Promotions and the WBA official was already in his seat and the IBF official was already in his seat, so who is this person?

"What's he doing talking to the WBA? Why is he handling the slips?

"These are legitimate questions and if they give us sufficient reasons for it then I'll accept it. I want to see what the reasons are.

"We're not saying there is foul play involved in any way, shape or form. I just need the answers for the sequence of events that have taken place. Nothing else.

"I'm not accusing any of the bodies. Lamont Peterson is the champion and good luck to him for 2012. My job is to get these answers."

Floyd Mayweather Jr: Due to serve 90 days inside


MAYWEATHER JAIL SENTENCE DELAYED

Floyd Mayweather Jr has had his jail sentence delayed until June - so he can fight on May 5.

Mayweather is scheduled to fight against and as-yet-unnamed opponent in Las Vegas on that date.

That was taken into account by a judge on Friday when Mayweather had been due to report to jail.

He has been allowed to delay his sentence until June 1.

Mayweather was last month sentenced to 90 days in prison after pleading guilty to reduced battery domestic violence and harassment charges.

Mayweather's plea deal avoided a trial on felony allegations that he hit his former girlfriend and threatened two of their children during an argument at her home in September last year.

The 34-year-old, who has held world championship titles in five divisions, was also order to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a £1,600 fine.

Amir Khan: lost titles on split decision


SCHAEFER: WBA ORDER KHAN REMATCH

Amir Khan's promoter says the WBA have informed him they will order a rematch between the British fighter and Lamont Peterson.

Khan lost his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles to Peterson on a split decision in Washington in December, a verdict that has been hotly disputed ever since.

Video subsequently emerged showing a man speaking with WBA supervisor Michael Walsh at ringside during the fight and handling slips of paper Khan says belonged to the judges.

Golden Boy Promotions' chief executive Richard Schaefer told Sky Sports News the IBF have told him the man in question is one of their officials, Mustafa Ameen, but he was not at the fight in an official capacity.

"The mystery man in the black wool hat has a name - his name is Mustafa Ameen," said Schaefer.

"The IBF have confirmed to us his name and confirmed that he is involved in an official capacity with the IBF.

"However, as stated earlier, he was not in Washington in an official IBF capacity.

"We have been informed today (Saturday) by the WBA that they will order a rematch.

"We received verbal confirmation today and we will get written confirmation by next Tuesday.

"That means that no fighter can take an interim fight, that the next fight for Peterson would be a rematch.

"We hope that the IBF will follow because that's the least they can do. The ruling of the WBA to order an immediate rematch should put additional pressures on the IBF."

He is also hopeful that the outcome of the fight will be changed to "no

contest", allowing Khan to retain his belts, but said: "It's difficult to

guess the no-contest ruling. I certainly hope this could happen."

Schaefer added: "There is a lot of smoke, and there is more and more smoke coming up as we are digging deeper.

"You cannot just go out and accuse people of things either.

"But there are a lot of question marks and these questions will need to be answered. If they are not, then I have my suspicions."

The IBF are due to hear Khan's appeal against the result on January 18 and do not plan on making any comment until then.

Khan and Roach: Mystery man identified


ROACH: MYSTERY MAN NOT IBF OFFICIAL

Amir Khan's trainer Freddy Roach claims he knows the 'mystery man' seen at ringside during the Briton's controversial defeat to Lamont Peterson last month - and does not believe he is an International Boxing Federation official.

Khan on Thursday used his ******* account to post a series of images of the man, seen wearing a dark hat, and to draw attention to his movements around the judges' table during the December fight in Washington, where Peterson won Khan's IBF and World Boxing Association titles after a disputed points decision.

Richard Schaefer, chief executive officer of Golden Boy Promotions, said yesterday the man had been identified as Mustafa Ameen, an IBF official who was given accreditation for the fight despite not being directly involved in it.

However, Roach says he personally knows Ameen and that he had no need to be ringside.

"He comes to my gym," Roach told BBC Sport. "He came to the [US] Olympic training centre and I actually had him removed one time.

"I told the coaches, 'There's no need for him to be here'. He goes to gyms and talks to other people's fighters.

"But he does know the boundaries because he doesn't go after my fighters - but he does talk to other people's fighters and he's been told not to a couple of times, even here in my gym."

Roach continued: "[Ameen] has no credentials; he's not a member of any boxing organisation. There's no reason for him to be at ringside.

"Why he was ringside and why he was in the ring afterwards celebrating and so forth I have no idea."

Schaefer also claimed on Saturday the WBA had offered Khan a rematch with the American, and urged the IBF to follow suit.

Roach agrees that, because of the possible interference, the fight should be declared a no contest and a rematch held.

He added: "You've got a guy sitting beside [Michael Welsh, World Boxing Association supervisor] that's talking about who's winning rounds and so forth - we can only speculate on what they were talking about but most likely they are talking about the fight.

"And people get influenced by other people easily. And that's why the rules are that no-one but officials are at ringside."

Chisora (l) and Klitschko: Showdown in Munich


CHISORA PREDICTS EIGHT-ROUND WIN

Dereck Chisora has vowed to knock Vitali Klitschko out in eight rounds to claim the WBC heavyweight crown when the pair clash at the Oympiahalle in Munich next month.

The 28-year-old British boxer is looking to bounce back from the disappointment of a controversial points defeat in his European title bout with Robert Helenius in Finland by pulling off a shock victory over the Ukrainian, the three-time world champion.

Chisora - who also lost to Tyson Fury in their British title showdown in July last year - saw his plans to take on IBF, WBO and WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko scuppered by the holder's injury problems, and intends to take his shot at the big time when it finally comes along against the other brother.

"Number eight is my ***** number and Vitali is going down in the eighth round," said Chisora when the pair came head-to-head at a press conference in London on Monday afternoon.

"He just does not know what is coming - I am physically and mentally coming to take what is his and make it mine.

"I hope you are prepared for that.

"I have already said to Vitali 'I hope you don't chicken out like your little brother, just make sure you are there'.

"I just hope you do not come up with excuses, say 'there is a problem with this or that'. I just want to fight."

Chisora added: "Everybody is tired of you and your brother, because you do not bring excitement to the game. They have killed the sport I love.

"It is time for the new king, and that will be me come February 18.

"I have everyone around the world on my side - in China they may not have heard of me, but after I whoop your ass, then they will.

"The time is here. He is the doctor and I am the black plague. I am coming to destroy him in his own back yard."

Klitschko, 40, believes Chisora is a "hungry" contender.

The veteran, however, is in no doubt he has both the game and the physical ability to end the Londoner's challenge.

"I have a lot of experience, but now I have to prove my skills again against a British guy, also my age," said Klitschko, who knocked out then-WBO champion Herbie Hide in London in June 1999 and also saw off challenge Danny Williams in 2004, but had been beaten by Lennox Lewis when they clashed for the WBC title in 2003.

"I feel like I am 25, have been sparring against guys who are half my age and I am in great condition and form.

"I do not want to go on to break the record of George Foreman - but being 40 is not an old man."

Klitschko added: "Every fight can be your last, so I prepare like it will be the last fight in your career.

"I will give my best to hold this title for a long time and that I can give it back to the federation for myself when I decide."

Promoter Frank Warren is confident there will be no issue with judging in Germany, after Amir Khan had seen his recent bout in America fall foul of some controversial officiating.

"The fight will be under a lot of scrutiny, we will be asking the Boxing Board of Control to have neutral officials," said Warren.

"We have had the last couple of fights with British guys abroad when there has been some controversy.

"The eyes of the world will be on this fight, so I am quite sure that they will ensure the right people are appointed as referees and judges."

Chisora has no problems with fighting overseas - and claims he can thrive on any negative atmosphere.

He said: "I love it. In Helsinki I was the underdog, but the more boos I heard, the more excited I was.

"We will travel anywhere to fight and I am looking forward to fighting in a famous stadium for the biggest prize."
