When Steve O’Meara climbs into the ring at the Troxy in London’s East End on Thursday night not only will he be tussling with ring veteran Bradley Pryce but he’ll also be jostling for space in the crowded market of public attention.
WBC light-heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins and challenger Chad Dawson came face to face at yet another press conference yesterday, but this time to announce their April 28 rematch in Atlantic City.

Featuring commentary from B-Hop himself, trainer Nazim Richardson and boxing historian Bert Sugar.
