Title Fights

IBF - Champion Rocky Marciano, USA, 19-2-0 (19) vs. #10 Gene Tunney, USA, 16-2-0 (9)
The Brockton Blockbuster, Rocky Marciano will defend his title against the IBF #1 ranked contender Gene “The Fighting Marine” Tunney. Marciano will be trying to avenge one of his only two losses to Tunney, who won a 15-round unanimous decision in 1952.

WBC - Champion “Iron” Mike Tyson, USA, 16-1-1 (15) vs. #5 James Jeffries, USA, 17-3-0 (15)
Many fans and experts were worried that “Iron” Mike would run into trouble because of the illness to long-time trainer and mentor Cus D’Amato. D’Amato provides stability, a sense of order and security to a talented youngster with a troubled background. Tyson has been seen with numerous women and has been reportedly staying out late enjoying the nightclub scene. Fortunately for Tyson, D’Amato returned from the hospital and straightened Tyson out, which has allowed the champ to refocus and train for the tough bout with the hard-hitting James “The Boilermaker” Jeffries. This will be Jeffries 2nd attempt at a world title.

EBU - Champion Vitali Klitschko, Ukraine, 14-2-0 (13) vs. #16 Max Schmeling, Germany, 20-4-1 (18)
Schmeling is the #1 ranked contender in the EBU. Klitschko has been inactive for six months since losing his opportunity at a world title vs. WBA Champion Chuck “No Doubt” Norton in March.
