Cody Rhodes Reveals Why WWE Recently Contacted Him

Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes revealed on “The Ric Flair Show” podcast, that the deal WWE recently offered him was related to a biography of his last father, the legendary Dusty Rhodes?

It was recently reported that WWE’s Mark Carrano was in touch with Rhodes about signing some sort of deal, believed to be a Legends deal for merchandising. Rhodes told Flair he has been working on rights to the book so he will still be able to write it.

There have also been reports that Rhodes was upset when the news of his talks with Carrano leaked as he expected them to remain confidential.

Chris Eubank Jr has criticised Gennady Golovkin’s decision to overlook him in favour of Kell Brook.

Golovkin had been in negotiations to fight Eubank Jr and a deal appeared imminent until a shock announcement that the Kazakh had signed to face Brook instead.

British champion Eubank Jr has denied that his negotiations thwarted a deal to fight the WBA Super, WBC and IBF world middleweight champion Golovkin.

I’m still ready & waiting to sign. Fighting Brook is a joke.

“I haven’t been shown one contract since my fight with GGG was announced,” he announced on social media on Friday.

Eubank Jr: Brook-GGG a 'joke'

'Eubanks made deal impossible'

Promoter Eddie Hearn says Chris Eubank Jr missed out on fighting Gennady Golovkin because they took too long to negotiate a deal

Eddie Hearn has blamed “impossible” demands made by Chris Eubank Jr and Sr for the collapse of a deal to fight Gennady Golovkin.

Negotiations for Eubank Jr to challenge Golovkin for his WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight titles were abandoned when the former failed to sign the fight contract before a deadline specified by Golovkin’s camp.

Kazakh superstar Golovkin will instead defend his titles against Kell Brook on September 10 at London’s O2 Arena, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Speaking about the dramatic turn of events on Sky Sports News HQ, Hearn said: “I worked for three weeks on that fight (Eubank Jr versus Golovkin), negotiating with Chris Eubank Sr. It felt like three years.

“We got into a position where everybody was ready to sign. He (Eubank Jr) was offered the same pay-per-view deal as Anthony Joshua, Carl Froch and the one that Kell Brook accepted.

“Unfortunately they (the Eubanks) made the deal impossible. The things they wanted were just a complete no-go. They were given a deadline and they chose not to take the fight.”

Brook, the IBF’s current welterweight king, will move up two divisions to take on feared knockout artist Golovkin, who has 32 stoppages in 35 unbeaten fights to date.

Brook had been in talks to take on WBO welterweight champion Jessie? Vargas in a unification bout but jumped at the chance to face Golovkin when Hearn informed him about Eubank Jr missing the deadline to take the fight.

Explaining how the fight came about, Hearn said: “Well, it was madness to be honest with you.

“We were in talks for two separate fights between Chris Eubank Jr. and Gennady Golovkin and also for Kell Brook in a unification clash with Jessie Vargas.

“The Eubanks were given a deadline for the fight and chose not to accept it.

“Then all of a sudden I was on the phone to Kell Brook and I said ‘it’s a shame you aren’t a middleweight, you could fight Golovkin’ and he said ‘I’ll fight Golovkin’. I asked if he was serious and he said ‘absolutely, sign me up’.

“Twenty-four hours later he signed the deal and he is fighting the most dangerous man on the planet, the No 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world.”

One man who was less than pleased to see Brook fighting Golovkin was Eubank Jr and he took to Twitter to deny ever being offered a contract to face Golovkin.

Eubank Jr tweeted: “I haven’t been shown one contract since my fight with GGG was announced. I’m still ready & waiting to sign. Fighting Brook is a joke. #2Small”

Despite the difficulties with negotiations, Hearn feels this is a temporary setback for Eubank Jr.

Hearn said: “There is a huge future for Chris Eubank Jr. He can fight the winner later on in the year. He has got a big future ahead of him. He misses out this time but I am sure he will get his shot in due course.”

The Eubanks declined to comment when contacted by Sky Sports.

Amir Khan has backed Kell Brook’s audacious decision to challenge middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin.

The Sheffield fighter is stepping up two divisions to face the fearsome Golovkin, just a few months after Khan courageously jumped up in weight to battle Saul Alvarez in May.

Khan’s brave bid to claim the WBC middleweight title was ended by a sixth-round stoppage defeat to the Mexican and Brook is attempting an equally daunting task by battling the big-punching Kazakh on September 10 at The O2, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

But the Bolton man has set aside his bitter rivalry with Brook and expressed his support for a fellow British fighter.

He tweeted: “Great work Eddie, preferred to have seen @ChrisEubankJr fight @GGGBoxing with his style but fair play.

“Behind you 100% @SpecialKBrook glad you took a leaf out of my book, tough ask but anything can happen, just don’t pull out.

“British fighters running the sport of boxing right now, so many fighters willing to fight the best and taking chances.”

Kell Brook has made the audacious decision to fight Gennady Golovkin – but why?

The IBF welterweight champion from Sheffield will jump up two weight divisions and 13lbs to challenge for the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter’s? WBA Super, WBC and IBF middleweight gold on Sky Sports Box Office.

The September 10 fight is a risky move by Brook, who was expected to meet fellow welterweight champion Jessie Vargas in his next fight, so we have weighed up the pros and cons of fighting Golovkin.

What could Brook gain?

The opportunity to trump his perennial rival Amir Khan will enable Brook to puff out his chest as he considers his newly-announced fight. Khan, of course, emerged with great credit despite a violent defeat at the hands of Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez due to his gutsy decision to jump up two weight divisions in pursuit of a big-punching world champion.

Brook will now make a far steeper jump. Khan-Canelo was actually at a 155lbs catchweight and the Mexican’s concerns with meeting Golovkin at the true middleweight limit have been well-documented. Brook, eschewing any such fear, will leap into the 160lbs lion’s den in a manoeuvre braver than Khan’s.

Canelo, it should be remembered, had been beaten by Floyd Mayweather and the optimism was that Khan’s skill-set could replicate that result. There is still no answer to Golovkin’s path of destruction meaning Brook is walking an untrodden path into a more complex fight. Brook v Golovkin is a clear attempt to usurp Khan’s brave efforts against Canelo. Until a fight finally materialises, that will be the sweetest blow Brook can land on Khan.

The Kazakh king’s perfect run of 35 wins sees him sitting peerlessly as the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter. After a generation owned by Mayweather, Golovkin is the attack-minded antidote who nobody can beat. More than just a ploy to irritate Khan, Brook’s decision to fight Golovkin is a bid to dethrone the No 1 fighter in the sport.

The opportunity to rip away the gleaming array of belts that adorn Golovkin’s waist also exists for Brook. He would become a two-weight world champion with a full 13lbs separating the two divisions that he would rule.

What if Brook wins? He would own a 37-0 unbeaten record, better than Golovkin’s, with a substantially better marquee win than anyone that the Kazakh has beaten. World titles at welterweight and middleweight, having defeated unbeaten champions to take control of each division, could catapult Brook into the pound-for-pound position that Golovkin currently owns.

The danger of getting knocked out is not simply that it ends a fight. The type of punches that Golovkin deliver can shorten careers and change lives. Iron chins never last forever, and Golovkin is the type of opponent whose victims never fully recover from losing to him.

The force of his knockouts will change the way a boxer reacts to future punches. The confidence built up from years inside the gym to stand toe-to-toe can evaporate after absorbing what he has to offer. Fighting Golovkin, simply put, is a risk to progressing a career beyond him.

Was Khan ever the same after his knockout defeats? Breidis Prescott raised questions about his defence that may have convinced Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia his chin was worth pursuing. Brook has no such doubts lingering above his head but losing to boxing’s foremost knockout artist could affect how future opponents view him.

Brook’s bank balance can’t lose regardless of the result on September 10, but he would be wise to count his coins for a rainy day. He stands to lose the opportunity to enter any future big-fight negotiations as the man in demand.

There is a battered and bruised pile of Golovkin’s 35 fallen opponents ready to welcome Brook into their growing club but Britain’s world welterweight champion has faith that the risk is worth the reward.

Brook will fight Golovkin at The O2 Arena on September 10, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Gennady Golovkin will defend his world middleweight titles against Kell Brook on September 10 at London’s O2 Arena, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Brook, the IBF’s current welterweight king, will jump two divisions to take on the WBA Super, WBC and IBF world middleweight champion in a bold move which echoes and even surpasses Amir Khan’s decision to tackle Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in May.

Golovkin’s pedigree as a savage knockout specialist can be traced more clearly even than Alvarez’s thanks to 32 stoppages in 35 unbeaten fights to date.

Why is Brook fighting GGG?

Analysing Brook’s decision to face the feared middleweight

Brook boasts one win more than GGG and is also yet to lose, but the Sheffield man has not fought for a title above 147lbs in his career.

And the Kazakh represents a huge leap in class for Brook after three routine defences of his welterweight belt in the past 16 months, two mandatory and the other against Birmingham’s Frankie Gavin.
