Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder Statement 🗣

“Wow, what a hell of a night! I would like to first and foremost thank God for allowing me to give the world another part of me that’s driven with passion and determination. I would like to thank my team and my fans for sticking by my side through this long process. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t disappointed in the outcome but after reflecting on my journey, I now see that what God wanted me to experience is far greater than what I expected to happen. We didn’t get the win but a wise man once said the victories are within the lessons. I’ve learned that sometimes you have to lose to win. Although, I wanted the win I enjoyed seeing the fans win even more. Hopefully, I proved that I am a true Warrior and a true King in this sport. Hopefully, WE proved that no matter how hard you get hit with trials and tribulations you can always pick yourself up to live and fight again for what you believe in. Last but not least I would like to congratulate @gypsyking101 for his victory and thank you for the great historical memories that will last forever.”

MONTANA LOVE SIGNS WITH MATCHROOM

Montana Love has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom.

Love (16-0-1 8 KOs) dazzled on his last outing, forcing Ivan Baranchyk to retire after seven rounds in his Cleveland hometown, and the unbeaten 26 year old will now look to kick on from that triumph and climb the rankings.

‘Too Pretty’ currently sits at #12 in the IBF and will be looking to rise from his first appearance with Matchroom, slated for December, and the talented southpaw is looking to grow his name outside the ring as well as in the ring.

Love’s story is an inspiring one, having turned his life around from spending time in prison to becoming a rising star in the sport and a community supporter in Cleveland, and he hopes to be able to be an inspiration to his hometown while fulfilling his dream of becoming a World champion.

“I’m very excited, definitely happy to be part of the team,” said Love. “Eddie came to me, and we worked out an amazing deal, I feel he’s the best in the business and this is going to be an amazing.

“I had lots of offers on the table, I talked to everyone, and we reached out to Eddie, he felt good about us, and we felt good about him. Eddie talks with paper, not just words out of his mouth, so everything he says is followed through in the deal and in the contract. I like that. I know he’s going to deliver for me on everything he’s said.

“I’m still growing and I’m at the point where I can see my peak. I’m opening up and developing more as a fighter and a person. Right now, it’s an exciting time to watch me.

“The biggest thing for me is to build my brand too. So that when the big fights do come along, the value and worth of the fights will be huge. I want to get to that superstar level so that when we go fight a Josh Taylor or Mikey Garcia, we are selling out and doing those numbers that Anthony Joshua and Canelo are doing.

“The Baranchyk fight was great for me in the ring and out the ring. I was the underdog going in there, nobody expected me to win. It took me to a new level, beating a top ten fighter, and doing it in Cleveland was amazing. The energy and the atmosphere was so good, and I want to experience that again.

“Cleveland has never really had a World champion and I want to be that guy. Shaun Porter is from Akron and that’s close by, but he never had a title fight in Cleveland so that would be a dream – to be the guy to do that, and then to bring the fans out and get boxing to grow in the city.”

“I am delighted to welcome Montana to the team,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “He’s a huge character with an inspirational story, turning his life around to become a real title contender.

“Montana was superb in beating Baranchyk last time out and bigger tests await him with us, I believe he can overcome those tests and will be knocking on the door to face the big guns at 140lbs sooner rather than later.”
“We are excited to begin this journey with Eddie and Matchroom,” said Love’s manager Jason Fowler of ESEMG. “We believe in Eddie and the path that he has set up for Montana and look forward to the world seeing the star that Montana is.”

TYSON FURY VS. DEONTAY WILDER III FINAL PRESS CONFERENCE

WBC and Lineal Heavyweight Champion Fury and Former Heavyweight Champion Wilder Preview Trilogy Showdown Taking Place This Saturday, October 9 on ESPN+ PPV and FOX Sports PPV from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS – WBC and lineal heavyweight world champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury and former heavyweight world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder previewed their highly anticipated heavyweight title trilogy showdown at the final press conference Wednesday before they step in the ring this Saturday, October 9 live on ESPN+ PPV and FOX Sports PPV from T-Mobile Arena.

Face to face for the first time since originally announcing the trilogy showdown in June, Fury and Wilder exchanged words during the heated press conference, rehashing the numerous dramatic twists and turns that have made up their rivalry, while promising to end their feud in the ring on Saturday.

Fury vs. Wilder III tickets are on sale now and can be purchased atwww.tmobilearena.comorwww.axs.com. The event is promoted by Top Rank, BombZquad Promotions, TGB Promotions and Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions. A Premier Boxing Champions presentation.

The fighters were joined on stage by their respective trainers, SugarHill Steward (Fury) and Malik Scott (Wilder). Here is what the press conference participants had to say Wednesday: 

TYSON FURY 

“I’ve just been training and taking it day by day. All we can do is live one day at a time. Every day that we wake up is a blessed day. 

“All these fights are exactly the same to me. Some guy is trying to take my head off. No matter who it may be, they don’t matter to me. It’s the Tyson Fury road show and it has continued for 13 years.  

“Wilder is a weak person mentally and I’m going to knock him out on Saturday night. I obliterated him in the rematch and I see much more of the same in the third fight.  

“I’m the last man standing between me, Deontay and Anthony Joshua. I’m the last one undefeated. I’m the two-time heavyweight champion and I’ve never lost a fight. That’s history. 

“Me and Sugarhill go back to like 2010 in Detroit. We have a great bond going. To have any successful relationship, you have to have good communication. We’ve got that. We just gel together. 

“It’s not easy for me to pick a trainer because I’m outspoken and do outlandish things. I have to have someone on the same wavelength to match that and I’ve definitely found a match with Sugarhill.  

“He says he wants to do bad things to me and that he’s got all this anger and aggression. Those who hold hot coals with aggression are the ones who get burned. He knows he’s lost twice and that he’s going to lose the third time.  

“He’s in denial and he’s getting knocked out. His legacy is in bits. I knocked him out and now I’m going to retire him.” 

DEONTAY WILDER 

“I don’t have anything to prove. I’m in a great place and in a great state of mind. I have a lot of great people around me. This fight is about redemption, retaliation and retribution. 

“We’ve been going from day one since the last fight. There’s been no stop. The delays have been beneficial for us. One thing about this camp, is that I’ve had all of my brothers around me who’ve been with me from the start. 

“Many people thought I was down and out, but it wouldn’t be fair to the people around me to feel that way. My dedication has been focused every day.  

“Over training is a real thing and we’ve been able to take small breaks at certain times before getting back at it. Everything has been good and timed out perfectly. 

“Saturday night is going to be a different fight. It’s rare that we get trilogies like this and I truly believe this one is going down in history.  

“It’s only made me better as a man and as a fighter to see certain things that happened in the second fight. It’s made me even hungrier than before. I needed everything that happened in that fight. It was really a blessing in disguise. 

“I have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Your legacy only dies when the desire for the sport dies. I’m well alive right now.  

“My energy is like my mind, it’s very violent. I’m just ready to go October 9. I’ve dedicated myself and devoted my time and my body, me and my team, to reinventing myself. I’m ready to reintroduce myself to the world.  

“Get ready for war. This is going to be an amazing fight on Saturday night. I’m wearing my red outfit because I want it back in blood. I’m looking forward to it.” 

SUGARHILL STEWARD, Fury’s Trainer 

“Training Tyson Fury has been just about making him better. He was already an exceptional boxer before I started training him. We fine-tuned those skills and understood some things that he didn’t see. Most importantly, it’s just about being ready. When he’s ready, he’s unstoppable.  

“Tyson Fury is very conscious of Deontay’s abilities. We’re just concentrating on being sharp and being focused. There’s always more to learn in boxing and Tyson is learning and having fun with it.  

“It’s exciting to be here. I believe in what the Wilder camp has been working on. I’ve looked at the clips. It gets me motivated to keep working with Tyson. We’re expecting nothing less than a knockout.” 

MALIK SCOTT, Wilder’s Trainer 

“I’m a student of the game. Deontay, in my opinion, ruled the heavyweight division just using one or two weapons. Being in training with him, I used to always say that a lot of his skills weren’t being used. He got content knocking people out with one weapon. 

“I went into Deontay’s toolbox and pulled everything out that he did well. I wanted to make sure that we drilled it over and over again. I didn’t teach him anything new. Deontay Wilder can do it all, I just pulled some of those things out of him.  

“When it comes to working on Deontay’s fundamentals, he has good fundamentals, he just didn’t always use them. I’m just reminding him about tools that he wasn’t using.”

UNDEFEATED HEAVYWEIGHT BRANDON MOORE JOINS PROBELLUM

Probellum is thrilled to announce the promotional signing of undefeated heavyweight contender Brandon Moore.

Moore (10-0, 6 knockouts) is the current WBC USNBC Silver champion, and extended his impressive unbeaten run with a first round knockout win over Jesus Angel Nerio in Mexico on Saturday.

Co-managed by highly-respected boxing figures Keith Connolly and Ryan Rickey, 27-year-old Moore is one of the most-promising heavyweight fighters in the world, and is known for his elite skills and his invigorating personality.

Standing at 6’6″, the talented southpaw from Florida was also a successful amateur, and has spent time working alongside former world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder during training camps.

Moore is Probellum’s latest promotional signing, following in the footsteps of former world champions Regis Prograis, Badou Jack and Ricky Burns, who have also joined the team.

“Probellum is the natural fit for me. A new, fresh, innovative approach to the sport,” said Moore. “Their business plan fits what I’ve been looking for and I’m excited with their help that I can get to the top of the heavyweight division.

“With Keith Connolly & Ryan Rickey as my managers I feel like I’ve assembled the best team on the planet to take me to the next level. I can’t wait to show the boxing world what I have to offer, and I’m excited to get started.”

“Brandon Moore is a young charismatic athletic mobile heavyweight. This is the perfect opportunity and Probellum presents the perfect platform,” said Moore’s co-manager Keith Connolly. “Collectively we will look to pursue the biggest and best opportunities for Brandon.

“People can expect to see him in big fights in the next couple of years as he climbs the ranks in the heavyweight division. Harrison Whitman and I have had extensive talks about doing business together and Brandon is the first of many top flight fighters we will be work together with in the coming years.”

“I see Probellum as the perfect partner to further Brandon’s career to the next level. Their leadership team have a rich history of success,” said Moore’s co-manager Ryan Rickey. “Also partnering with Keith Connolly as co-manager was a no-brainer.

“He’s always been extremely insightful and looked out for his own fighters best interests. Our core beliefs and ideologies are the same.

“This is the first fighter we officially will work with together and I know Brandon will be wildly successful. The synergies between the team align perfectly.”

“We’re pleased to be working with Keith Connolly and Ryan Rickey to announce the promotional signing of Brandon Moore,” said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum“There are a lot of highly-rated prospects in the heavyweight division, and Brandon might well just be the best of them all.

“The heavyweight division is in a great place at the moment, and it’s going to be enjoyable seeing how Brandon’s career develops over the coming years alongside Probellum.”

Details on when Moore will have his first bout as a Probellum-signed athlete will be revealed in the near future.

Top Cruiserweight Constantin Bejenaru Returns November 6 to Face Undefeated Danish Prospect Ditlev Rossing in Crossroads Showdown

Heading into an opponent’s backyard to fight for the second consecutive time, world-class cruiserweight contender Constantin Bejenaru says he knows he has to be more aggressive on Saturday, November 6, if he’s to pull off the victory over undefeated Ditlev “D-struct” Rossing of Denmark as one of the headlining bouts at ‘Danish Fight Night, presented by Hall of Fame Promoter Mogens Palle at the Brondby Hall on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Bejenaru (14-1, 4 KOs) and Rossing (14-0, 9 KOs) will meet over 10 tough rounds in one of the main attractions of the evening. The other headlining showdown is an IBF Female Featherweight Championship defense by Danish star Sarah Mahfoud.Coming off a long layoff since suffering his first professional loss in a fight for the WBA ‘super’ title against Arsen Goulamirian in December 2019, Bejenaru says that while his training has been mostly “business as usual,” he will be coming into the fight with a different mindset than his last. “After my last fight, I know I need to have more confidence and make certain adjustments during fights,” said Bejenaru. “With that lesson, I believe that I can become a world champion and this is the first step towards that. As far as ring rust, I have been in the gym since I was 9 years old, so even between fights I am in the gym five days a week. Not just for boxing but and for my health. Sport gave me an addiction, but at least this is a good addiction.” A crafty 5′ 11″ southpaw living in Brooklyn via Ungheni, Moldova, Bejenaru is a former highly decorated amateur. He was a 10-time Romanian champion, a Bronze Medalist at the European Amateur Boxing Championships in 2006, a Finalist in the European Union Championships in both 2006 and 2007, and a Gold Medalist at World Combat Games in 2010. Despite all the fistic accomplishments on his resume, Bejenaru says the relatively untested Rossing will still be a dangerous foe, especially in his own backyard. “Of course, he will have a lot of his supporters but that doesn’t bother me. This is boxing, and it will just be me and him in the ring,” explained Bejenaru. “He is a pretty good boxer with a good amateur background, and he is undefeated in his professional career. I saw some of his fights, and he has good boxing skills. He has a good jab, and he can work in offense and defense. I’m taking this fight seriously because I think it will be a good challenge for both of us.” “This victory over a highly-touted undefeated prospect will put Constantin back in the discussion of the world’s best cruiserweights,” said his promoter, Dmitriy Salita. “He is looking sharper than ever in the gym as he prepares for this important crossroads battle.”
