Team Kayode Rip Ryan Coyne Over His New Opponent

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene's David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg recently wrote a story in which it was revealed that WBA cruiserweight champ Guillermo Jones had withdrawn from his scheduled title defense versus Ryan Coyne.

Coyne's business advisor Michael Garrett told BoxingScene that Dave McNewmar (13-0) will be Coyne's new opponent. 

A few months ago Coyne and fellow cruiserweight contenders Lateef Kayode and BJ Flores engaged in a war of words on BoxingScene.

Kayode's manager Steve Feder reached out to BoxingScene to issue a statement on Coyne's new opponent. Needless to say he wasn't impressed on Jones' last minute replacement.   

"Coyne's advisor says he's fighting a guy who is undefeated. He is 13-0 but he hasn't fought in 3 years and he's 37 years old. Jesus. And he had the balls to call Kayode a fraud?  They need a last minute replacement and they pick a guy who has been more inactive then Dick Chaney during hunting season."

Feder went on to say that he had no problem matching his fighter with Coyne in a battle of undefeated prospects.

"All the have to do is have Don call John Beninati (Gay Shaw's matchmaker) and make the fight."
