Undefeated Australian champ Brayd Smith dies

Australian boxer Brayd Smith who was admitted in hospital after a serious head injury dies. After falling to Filipino John Vincent Moralde in a pugilism bout in the featherweight division, Smith sustained serious head injuries which eventually ended in demise.

Smith apparently collapsed hours after his 10-round bout not in favor of Moralde at Rumors International in Australia. He was in life support and was reportedly to be found into an induced coma when he was in Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital.

Smith, who is a fourth year Law student, is the son of Brendon Smith who steered the career of former WBO champion Michael Katsidis.

Having rushed to the hospital after feeling unwell in his dressing room, sources say that he had severe head injuries. James O’Shea, who knew Smith, spoke of one of the young boxer’s goals.

“His thoughts were nothing other than boxing and he really wanted to change the image of boxing,” O’Shea said in an interview. Apart from becoming an undefeated championship, main goal of his in life was to show people that boxing is not a bad sport, because this sport has gained a bad rap a lot of times.

“So many people have a high opinion of him,” he said of Smith.

The Most Awaited May Weather vs. Pacquiao Fight Will Happen Soon

The most awaited May weather vs. Pacquiao Fight Will Happen soon

The long awaited and most expected May weather, Manny Pacquiao fight could just be a matter of time with both the welterweight champions showing great personal interest in the competition.

Both of them have shown great interest May weather’s intent is known via a video post over the social networking site, Instagram, while Pacquiao has stated it in an interview with Fox News.

“I’m thinking that the fight will happen,” said Pacquiao.

“So confidently within a week’s time, we can hear from them and confirm the fight…I don’t want that [the fight not to happen] when I retire boxing, and there’s a big question to the minds of the fans.”

It was quite a few weeks before where both the welterweight title holders were said to have met in a hotel to thrash out about the bout, with May weather leaking a small clip on social networking site.

The video makes clear about May weather’s seriousness about the fight, where he has said: “I congratulate him [Pacquiao] on his career.

“He had a wonderful career and I had a wonderful career, but before we leave the sport, of course we have to make this fight happen.”

Boxing fans round the globe want the fight to shape up as well.

With the intent of the boxers been disclosed clearly, it is HBO and Showtime that’s facing pressure and they seem to have been a major hindrance for the fight, nevertheless, HBO has told that they are not a hurdle to the fight.

While Pacquiao is contracted with HBO, May weather is contracted with Showtime.

Bob Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, just a few days ago stated that both the networks have agreed to a deal, but Showtime chief Stephen Espinoza made it clear that a deal had not been completed.

More than a few media reports have asserted over the past few days or so that the private deals for the competition between the boxers have been agreed, counting a better financial share for the American in the tune of 60-40.

It is of no importance, how much HBO says that they are not an impediment, it is the network deal, which has not made the grade to see the fight happen.

The major impediment is the terms for the deferred air of the shared pay-per-view.

Despite the difference of opinion, both networks, at the same time are aware of the money that they will be making from this fight, so it is expected that the networks will come to a common agreement in the end.

Goodison Park world title -wrestle for Bellew

Professional darts corporation director and British boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn has firmly inveterate that he is looking into the possibility of Tony Bellew testing for a world title at cruiserweight at his adored Goodison Park in the spring.

The German WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck lately told World Boxing News that he is involved in conferring with devout Blue Bellew about a battle at the home of Everton FC, even though Hearn says IBF holder Yoan Pablo Hernandez is also in the casing.

Currently, I’m planning for Tony Bellew to have the next move with, after he got his revenge over cleverly, “Hearn said in his Daily mail column. “”I’m in negotiations with both Marco Huck and Yoan Hernandez concerning cruiserweight world-title fights with Tony.

The rest of the allotments are on familiar terms that he sells. The statistics from the weekend were very good and that makes him lucratively attractive to all of them.

“At the present time, it looks like his subsequent fight will be for a world title in the spring. We are by now in deep deliberations with Huck, the WBO champion from Germany, and I can disclose we are also talking to Hernandez, the Cuban who has the IBF belt.

“We have noticed the city of Liverpool get at the rear of Tony and I am in talks as regards putting on a battle for him at Goodison Park. The concern is whether we could get one of the world champions to exchange blows over here.

“Taking a look from that perspective, Hernandez seems keener to pass through, so we’ll hang around and witness how it pans out in the next few weeks,” he added.

Nathan cleverly has called for a tie-breaker match flanked by the duo to clear up their disparities once and for all, since Bellew moves on to better and bigger things, the battle looks dead at this point.
