Pictures from W. Klitschko-Peter & Mosley-Mora Press Conferences

What's very interesting to note is that HBO's PPV logo appears on the banner behind the fighters. Last month HBO claimed they would not support the PPV, which I thought was a good move. It now appears the network has had a change of heart. More on this story as it develops.

American heavyweight Samuel Peter has already improved on Alexander Povetkin’s recent antics by actually attending the press conference to annouce his fight with Wladimir Klitschko. The two fighters are rematching their 2005 encounter which saw Klitschko take a unanimous decision despite being floored three times. The fight will be for Wladimir’s IBF and WBO titles.

The presser was held in Frankfurt, Germany. ESPN has also confirmed that they will pick up the fight on tape delay at 8PM ET and on September 12 at 4:30PM ET.

Shane Mosley, Sergio Mora, Victor Ortiz and Saul Alvarez have an official press conference scheduled for tomorrow (August 3) regarding their September 18 Golden Boy PPV fight card. But the fighters were on hand Saturday morning to speak briefly about the fight card. Mosley and Mora will meet at junior middleweight. Alvarez and Ortiz will announce their bouts tomorrow.

What’s very interesting to note is that HBO’s PPV logo is visible on the banner in the first and last pictures. Last month HBO claimed they would not support the PPV, which I thought was a good move. It now appears the network has had a change of heart. More on this story as it develops.
