Calling an initial offer “an insult,” James Kirkland said he asked for a $2.5 million purse to face WBC junior middleweight titleholder Saul Alvarez with an injured right shoulder.
Paul Williams: “They told me there is a very slight chance of walking because the spine was, like, crushed or whatever…but as far as me walking and all of that, it’s all on me. I’m going to be walking. I know that. That’s how I feel.”
Junior middleweight contender James Kirkland could replace injured Paul Williams as an opponent for WBC titleholder Saul Alvarez on Sept. 15.
Austin Trout: “I want to take the doubt out of people’s hearts of what type of champion I am. I have no doubt that I’m where I’m supposed to be. I have no doubt that, after my fight against Delvin Rodriguez, that I’ll be bigger than where I’m at now.”
Surgery on Monday successfully repaired two tears in James Kirkland’s right shoulder; Saul Alvarez will return to the ring on Sept. 15 against an opponent to be determined — a rematch if Shane Mosley should win on May 5.
Carlos Molina’s attorney has filed an appeal with the Texas commission seeking to overturn last Saturday’s HBO-televised disqualification loss to James Kirkland.
