Ortiz On Berto Fight : I’m Tired Of People Saying I have No Heart Or No Balls.”

The “East-West Showdown,”  featuring World Boxing Council (“WBC”) Welterweight World Champion Andre Berto and WBC #5 rated challenger “Vicious” Victor Ortiz, kicked off their promotional campaign on Wednesday at  The Palm West Restaurant in New York City. Here’s what  Berto and Ortiz had to say.

Andre Berto: “We have already had a tremendous camp. I feel the speed; I feel the power, and the explosiveness.”

“Victor Ortiz is a young exciting fighter who is stepping up the plate. He is young and he has speed, but people who have seen me grow in front of the HBO cameras have seen the way I handle adversity. People saw the way Victor Ortiz handled adversity the first time he tasted it.”

“Don’t miss this fight. This is going to be the start of a wonderful year.”

Victor Ortiz: “I’ve always worked hard, but in my last fight it was one of these things where at the end I felt like a piece of gum on the bottom of someone’s shoes. So I said to myself: ‘It’s my turn.’ I’m going in against some tough opposition. Andre Berto is no chump. But now I’m hungry. I’m tired of people saying that I have no heart or no balls. At the end of the day, I’m not scared of getting in the ring or challenging anyone. On April 16 I’m taking the title home.”

The Apirl 16th fight will take place at the  MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Connecticut. It’s presented by DiBella Entertainment , in association with Golden Boy Promotions. It will be televised on HBO.

Beibut Shumenov Severs Ties With Goossen Tutor Promotions

LAS VEGAS (March 17, 2011) – World Boxing Association/International Boxing Association Light Heavyweight Champion Beibut Shumenov filed a lawsuit today (Thursday, March 17, 2011) against Goossen Tutor Promotions. The lawsuit asks the Nevada court to confirm that a promotional agreement between Shumenov and Goossen Tutor is terminated.

Shumenov terminated his agreement with Goossen Tutor Promotions in January of this year.

Shumenov alleges that Goossen Tutor Promotions violated its duties under the contract in different ways. The lawsuit charges breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and deceptive trade practices and seeks a judicial confirmation that the agreement is terminated. Shumenov seeks unspecified damages, including punitive damages

Shumenov is anxious to continue on his mission to unify the world light heavyweight titles and he will move forward through his promotion company, KZ Event Productions, Inc.

Shumenov (11-1, 7 KOs), the 2004 Kazakhstan Olympian, has been on an unprecedented, accelerated pace since his pro debut only three years ago, defeating two world champions in his first eight bouts, Montell Griffin and Byron Mitchell. A year ago, Shumenov established the mark for fewest pro fights needed to capture a major world light heavyweight title, defeating defending champion Gabriel Campillo by 12-round decision for the WBA crown in his 10th bout, breaking the record of 15 set by Jeff “Hit Man” Harding in 1989.

Shumenov was supposed to fight World Boxing Organization 175-pound titlist Juergen Braehmer in a Unification title fight January 8 in Shymkent, Kazakhstan, however, Braehmer unexpectedly pulled-out of the match the week of the fight claiming gastrointestinal problems.

Shumenov registered a victory by sixth-round knockout against Braehmer’s replacement, Joppy, who became the fourth world champion Beibut has defeated during his relative young pro career.

 

Shumenov owns and operates the Las Vegas-based KZ Event Productions along with his brother, Chingis.
