RING­SIDE NOTES

Boxing News - - Action -

- WHEN orig­i­nal Wilder op­po­nent Luis Or­tiz was pulled out due to fail­ing a drugs test, ticket prices for the show were low­ered.

- SOME­THING has to be done about it be­fore it be­comes a ma­jor prob­lem, but a strong smell of mar­i­juana was go­ing around ring­side. It has hap­pened mul­ti­ple times be­fore.

- SER­RANO who has held mul­ti­ple women’s ti­tles, has talked of re­tir­ing from box­ing and go­ing into MMA where she could re­port­edly make more money.

- THERE was no up­roar over Wilder’s com­ments be­fore­hand of want­ing to lit­er­ally kill Stiverne in the ring. Con­sid­er­ing the na­ture of our sport, and it’s some­times tragic con­se­quences, Wilder should face some dis­ci­plinary ac­tion for those dis­taste­ful re­marks.
