By Przemek Garczarczyk

Minnesotan Joey Abell (33-9, 31 KO), on two KO fight streak (with an impressive knockout at Premier Boxing Champions televised event vs. Nofire) vs. once-beaten Krzysztof Zimnoch (22-1, 15 KO) were very casual in their open training routine but they both know what’s at stake on September 9.

Where Are They Now? William Guthrie

By Boxing Bob Newman

Former IBF Light Heavyweight champion William served notice to the light heavyweight division that there was a new sheriff in town. Almost as quickly he was knocked off his mantle, and had a spotty record the remaining ten years thereafter in boxing. Guthrie took time to talk to Fightnews.com® about his checkered past, from the mean streets of St. Louis, to his climb up the ranks in boxing which was interrupted for three years by a stint in prison and life after he left the squared circle for good in 2007.

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield made his professional debut at Madison Square Garden in New York City in November 1984 and has fought in the “Big Apple” numerous times throughout his Hall of Fame career.

After 33 years, Holyfield returns to New York as part of a boxing event but this time he will be doing it from the other side of the ropes as a promoter.

Holyfield, known for the excellent condition and preparation he had during his 56-fight career, said he is preparing his promotion to run the same way, even if the idea of being a promoter wasn’t one he initially anticipated.

“I never thought about it when I was actually fighting ‘cause of the fact that I was one of them type of people that’s kind of one-minded: I could do one thing real well,” Holyfield said in an exclusive interview with FightNews.com®.
