Shakur Stevenson Vs. Jamel Herring Likely For Mid November

By: Hans Themistode Despite being good friends, Shakur Stevenson continued to scream and shout for his mandatory title shot against WBO super featherweight titlist, Jamel Herring. Now, after winning the WBO interim strap against Jeremia Nakathila on June 12th, earlier this year, he’ll get his wish. As first reported by Dan Rafael, formerly with ESPN, promoter Bob Arum has a set date of November 13th for the pair to face off. No site has been confirmed as yet but all signs point to their clash taking place next. News of his title shot taking place soon, will bring an immediate smirk to the face of Stevenson. Since winning silver at the 2016 Olympic Games, the New Jersey native has been spectacular as a pro. In only his 13th professional fight, Stevenson captured the WBO featherweight title with a one-sided route over Joet Gonzalez. He was unable to defend his newly won belt, however, as he opted to move up in weight. Both Herring and Stevenson have shared numerous training camp sessions and worked closely with one another. Still though, while Stevenson has great reverence for Herring as a fighter, his mindset has always been “business is business.” As for Herring, the former Marine was hoping to secure a unification clash with WBC titlist, Oscar Valdez. The 35-year-old has reeled off seven straight wins since his defeat at the hands of Ladarius Miller in 2017. Recently, Herring picked up the biggest of his career in his last ring outing. On April 3rd, earlier this year, Herring took on former multiple division champion, Carl Frampton. Despite being the underdog, Herring dominated Frampton, dropping him twice before finishing him off in the sixth round and ultimately sending him into retirement. The post Shakur Stevenson Vs.

Caleb Plant Details What Went Wrong In Canelo Alvarez Fight Negotiations, Including What He Deems As “Absurd” Demands

By: Hans Themistode Everything appeared to be going smoothly between Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant. The two sides were working out intense negotiations behind the scenes for an upcoming September 18th showdown. The moment Alvarez landed the deleterious blow on Billy Joe Saunders in early May to rip away his WBO super middleweight world title, he made it no secret that he wanted Plant and his IBF belt. With a win, the Mexican star would become the first undisputed world champion in super middleweight history. But while Alvarez has vehemently stated on numerous occasions that he would love nothing more than to face Plant, the Nashville, Tennessee native is of the belief that the pound for pound star is all talk. “His bark is bigger than his bite,” said Plant to ESPN. “I question whether legacy or money is their real motive.” As of yesterday afternoon, negotiations for their September showdown hit a bump in the road. Plant, 28, is incredulous that there having any issues at all. In his opinion, he’s acquiesced to nearly every demand Alvarez has asked for but that seemingly isn't enough. “Canelo was offered the highest guarantee of his career,” continued Plant. “He was set to make $40 million plus Mexican TV rights and his Hennessy Sponsorship. No problem, let's fight. We gave it to him. Then they wanted upside of gate and PPV revenue; no problem, let's rumble. It was always agreed that it was a unification, no rematch for either fighter. Towards the end of negotiations, they asked for a rematch when they lose. No problem, you can have the rematch as well, I just wanna fight. We tried to give him everything he wants and more to make this fight.” Although Plant believes both he and his team have been more than accommodating, he can’t say the same for team Alvarez. After successfully defending his title for the third consecutive time this past January against former titlist, Caleb Truax, Plant turned his direction towards Alvarez. The 28-year-old has made his feelings known that becoming an undisputed champion has been on his mind since he turned pro in 2014. Nevertheless, with Alvarez making what Plant maintains as outrageous demands, he believes the sand inside the hourglass is wasting away. “One that is absurd: If I get injured or sick then he gets a late replacement for the same amount of guaranteed money, but if he gets sick or injured, then we gotta wait for him. We're at seven-and-a-half weeks from the fight; we've lost valuable time that should be spent promoting and drug testing for a fight of this magnitude.” The post Caleb Plant Details What Went Wrong In Canelo Alvarez Fight Negotiations, Including What He Deems As “Absurd” Demands appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
