Portland Exposition Building has a deep history of arranging sporting events since their beginning ninety nine years ago. Very recently, the Expo has been known as a popular basketball facility, base to squads from Portland High School and Maine Red Claws, the National Basketball Association Developmental League associate of Boston Celtics.

Bobby Russo is braced to furbish up the facility to one of its earlier incarnations. On Wednesday, the well known trainer and coach who runs Portland Boxing Club stated that he plans to push a boxing event at the Expo on 16th November, Saturday, which includes both amateur and professional bouts.

Russo told that it has been twenty one years since a boxing event took place at Expo, and before that it was yet another fifteen years before that. He added that it was the end of a stunning era of this sport. Portland was one of the great fight places in the world back in 1960s as well as 1970s. At that appoint of time, Boxing was like a franchised game. One could count on that every Thursday night.

The 16th November event would be the 98th card arranged by Russo with recent events in the city shows staged at the Stevens Avenue Armory and Portland Boxing Club. Russo has staged events over 2 decades. Russo told that the past event they had attracted few thousand people. Russo also has plans to arrange 4 – 5 pro battles as well as 4 – 5 amateur bouts.

Heavyweight boxing’s top dog Wladimir Klitschko, the holder of four of the five major Heavyweight Championship belts in boxing, has set his sights on his next target and that is David Price. According to Klitschko, the next time that he defends his title, he would like to face the man from Liverpool. The Ukrainian Heavyweight boxer and the younger brother of Vitali Klitschko, the holder of the other major Heavyweight boxing championship belt is unbeaten in the last 15 bouts that he has been in and it seems he has chalked out who his 16th victim is going to be.

Dr. Iron Fist, as he is called in certain sections of the media because of the doctorate degree he has ion sports science, has not officially stated that he would fight David price, but has made it clear that Price is definitely a prospect the next time he defends his title. The last time Wladimir Klitschko was in the ring defending his title, it took him just four rounds to get the better of Jean Mormeck, a former champion in the Cruiserweight division who decided to give it a shot to glorify himself with the riches of the Heavyweight category.

David Haye, another one of the former victims of Wladimir made his up to the Heavyweight division from the Cruiserweight division and by fighting a big man like David Price, Klitschko could prove to one and all that he is indeed the best of all time and that he can take care of any opponent, regardless of their size, though Manny Pacquiao probably says the same thing!

Price is already becoming a household name in the United Kingdom with his wins against Sam Sexton and John McDermott and a title match with Wladimir Klitschko might just be the push he needs to become a global superstar of boxing.
