Video by britishboxers.co.uk – Peter Fury, the uncle and trainer of unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury, has has denied the boxer has retired from fighting and will be back in the ring, after having Christmas off in the light of his fight against David Haye being called off for a second time.

We’re going to start off today with Cesar Seda and Leo Santa Cruz, and then immediately following their comments and your questions for them, we will turn it over to Keith Thurman and Jesus Soto Karass. To get this call going, I’m going to introduce Richard Schaefer, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Boy Promotions.
Richard Schaefer – Thank you, Kelly. Before I get started to talk to about this sensational card, I just want to make another quick comment. There were some great fights this weekend. We had pound-for-pound great Andre Ward looking quite spectacular in defending his world title, but there was another fight which really stole the weekend.

Tillman is a former heavyweight gold medalist, who attained this goal in the Los Angeles games of 1984. Tillman also beat Mike Tyson twice in the amateurs. Continue reading
