Danny Acosta: Can you comment on Gary stepping down?

Jared Shaw: What’s out there is the truth. That is Gary just had a lot going on between family, travel at his age, and his boxing. He’s got really spectacular fall cards: Alfredo Angulo fighting on the 4TH on HBO, you’ve got [Antonio] Tarver-Chad Dawson world title fight on Showtime in October, Sergio Mora contender fight with Vernon Forrest…

DA: EliteXC was definitely steered by Gary’s vision, how will the direction of the company change now that he’s not involved?

JS: I don’t think that’ll change at all. The production remains the same. You have Showtime and CBS as the platform and their people do a fantastic job at producing these shows and making them great for television. All the fights are still in tact, with the same matchmaking team, the same guys completely working for the promotion.

We just don’t have the face, which was Gary. Right now we don’t have a face, but I like to think EliteXC the brand is the face.



Rest here:

Hopefully they'll get rid of the gangsta image they were going for. I got tired of all the posse's in th cage after fights. Having Hip Hop singers and all the posing and ancing in the ring after fights

Danny is a close friend of mine, he always has a good story.

I think it should be interesting to see cyborg and gina fight

well since they make up weight classes for Gina in the first place i would have to disagree and say it is just the Gina Carano weight class since no one else fits into it...
