Rising star and WBA lightweight champion Juan Diaz (26-0-12K) defeated Julien Lorcy (56-4-41K) earlier tonight by way of unanimous decision in San Antonio, Texas. The scores were 118-110, 119-109, and 118-110. Ringside observers tell BoxingScene that Lorcy put up a decent fight, but was outclassed by Diaz down the stretch.

Former heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe, who has been denied a Boxing in Tennessee, now has a bout scheduled in Louiville, Kentucky on November 27th, which is just three weeks away. The fight will take place in the Louisville Gardens. Bowe will be the main event on a seven bout card. No opponent has been announced. Chris Webb, promoter of the Danny Williams-Mike Tyson card, is the promoter of the upcoming Bowe card. Webb is promoting the card with his new company, Straight Up Promotions (was formerly known as Straight Out Promotions). Webb told local media that the event is a fundraiser for Louisville boxer Greg Page.

A press conference was held in Germany to announce a very intriguing bout between two undefeated heavyweights, seven foot and 300 plus pounds of Nicolai Valuev (38-0-29K) will face the very slick Gerald "The Jedi" Nobles (24-0-19K) in a twelve round fight. Valuev is looking at this fight as a stepping tool towards a title fight or a big name opponent, Nobles sees this fight in the same light.

Both fighters have been virtually untested in the ring and this fight will make one guy a contender and the other a pretender. The biggest win on the record of Nobles is against former champion Bruce Seldon and Valuev's biggest win is against former Olympian Paolo Vidoz. Both guys have power, we will see who takes a better punch. The bout will take place in  Kempten, Germany on November 20, 2004.

Who is best light heavyweight in the world? Antonio Tarver ( 22-2-18K) and Glen Johnson ( 41-9-28K) are both ready to prove they are the best at 175. As reported earlier, the bout is set for Dec. 18 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Another interesting note about this fight is the fact that Roy Jones Jr. will be ringside doing play by play with Larry Merchant and Jim Lampley for the live HBO telecast.

Both fighters gave their thoughts on the highly anticipated showdown when recently interviewed by USA Today.

"I'm excited about this fight because it gives me an opportunity to solidify myself as the man at light heavyweight if I haven't already. It's the fight the fans want to see because we both knocked out Roy Jones. He's a tough, hard-nosed fighter, a throwback. The guy is a winner no matter what obstacles were put in front of him (like) bad decisions. When you look at the hard luck he had, most guys would have quit a long time ago. He has the will of a champion. I'm a marked man, but I've got to rule this division with an iron fist, and I plan on doing it." said Tarver

"It's to show who is the better guy who has a win over Roy Jones. I believe it will be a great fight, a tough fight, and I am looking forward to it." said Johnson

That dude fighting Valuev is the guy with the B-cup man boobs from the Jones/Tarver II undercard! I'm guessing this guy's 'O' is the one to go.
