Promoter Dave Coldwell Statement On Jerome Wilson

By Coldwell Boxing September 15th, 2014 All Boxing News

It is with deep regret that I have to make the following statement.

Jerome Wilson unfortunately suffered a severe head injury during his fight in Sheffield

He is receiving the best possible care and, while he receives treatment, Jerome's family request privacy at this difficult time.

Further updates will be released when Jerome's family feel it appropriate to do so, therefore, no further comment will be made until directed by Jerome's family.

Celebrity Big Brother

By Jane Warburton September 13th, 2014 All Boxing News

 AHARRISON1 Celebrity Big Brother

Five weeks ago, the boxing world was shocked to hear that former Boxing Promoter – Frank Maloney had begun the transition to become a woman named Kellie. We saw (in disbelief) the no-nonsense bolshy cockney bloke, best known for his union jack suits and management of Heavyweight Champion Lennox Lewis, transformed in a blonde wig, makeup, dress and heels and talking quietly to the Sunday Mirror’s reporter. If that wasn’t hard enough to swallow – just a week after the revelation, Kellie Maloney entered the Celebrity Big Brother house for a four-week stint, promptly followed in by an unsuspecting Audley Harrison (!) I almost fell off my chair at that point.

Kellie’s time spent in the house was tumultuous. By the end of that first night as a housemate – she’d gained some new friends, got over her nerves (with a large helping of alcohol) and the softer voice had given way to the familiar voice of Frank. In the days that followed, she was seen to have mini-meltdowns, rows and tears. Her friendship with American – Leslie Jordan of ‘Will and Grace’ fame soon turned sour after he nominated Kellie to go to the (outdoor) celebrity scrapheap along with American Actor Gary Busey, former exotic dancer and reality star - Frenchy and ex-Gladiator David MacIntosh. Leslie though wasn’t the only one Kellie rowed with and she became the fifth housemate to be evicted by the public on the 5th September.

Audleys’ journey was smoother and quieter although he and dancer – James Jordan, did not get along. Bad-boy of dancing - James had an obsession for ‘winding people up’ and what he termed as ‘his humour’ came across as more of a bad attitude – with Audley being the brunt of it on many an occasion. But Audley came across well to the viewing public and I personally liked his ‘firm but fair’ approach.

At last night’s final - the gentle giant was voted ‘runner-up’, coming second to movie legend – Gary Busey, who became the first American ever to win Celebrity Big Brother.

Eastern Intrigue: Zhakiyanov Destroys Edishershvill In Minsk

At a packed King Georges Hall, Blackburn, England, last night – Steve Wood (VIP Boxing Promotions) hosted a fight-night billed as ‘Motown Showdown’. The ten card Bill headlined the vacant WBC International Silver Super-Middleweight Title between Luke Blackledge of Accrington and Philip Kotey of Ghana.

Blackledge was the busier and more accurate of the two men throughout the ten round contest. Kotey looked rather ungainly and wasn’t as busy from the third round although he did get through the guard of Blackledge with the left on more than one occasion. Kotey began to flail his arms around in round eight which may have been to try and put his opponent off. The act annoyed the jeering crowd and although Blackledge looked bemused – he continued with the same focus.
Blackledge wins the Title on Unanimous Points Decision 100-91; 100-91; 100-91.

Undercard Results:

Stevie Taylor(Darwen) v Mitch Mitchell (Lincoln)
4 x 3 Cruiserweight Contest
Taylor on points 40-36

Derrick Grieve (Blackburn) v Dee Mitchell (Manchester)
4 x 2 Welterweight Contest
Draw 38-38 More...
