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.


Marcos Maidana has called on pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather to ‘fight him like a man’.

By BoxNation September 12th, 2014 All Boxing News

The pair clash for the second successive time, live on BoxNation, this Saturday night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, with the rugged and rough Argentine calling on Mayweather to not run when they lock horns.

Maidana carries a fearsome reputation as one of boxing’s biggest hitters, with 31 knockouts in 35 wins, and has dismissed claims that his success in the first fight was as a result of the American superstar having slowed down, as he looks to goad Mayweather into a war. More...

History Says Maidana Has A Chance In Mayweather Rematch

By Showtime Boxing September 5th, 2014 All Boxing News

Welterweight and junior middleweight boxing history is rich with legends of men who found victories in rematches. If we base our projections in historic facts, we could say Argentine power puncher and former welterweight world champion Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) has a solid chance to win the Sept. 13 Showtime PPV rematch against 37-year old, 11-time, five-division world champion and pound-for-pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs).

The late Vernon “The Viper” Forrest was shocked in June 2008 by “The Contender” winner Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora, losing a majority decision for his WBC Junior Middleweight Title.

They met again in Sept. of that year and it was a different Forrest in the sequel. Boxing with class and precision, Forrest won a lopsided decision to regain his crown in what would be the final fight of his career. More...
