NEW YORK CITY, October 31, 2014 — This Sunday, November 2nd, boxing’s legendary Hall of Fame ring announcer, Michael Buffer will be 70 years old.

Buffer and his trademark phrase “Let’s Get Ready To Rumble” are still going as strong as ever and this year has been one of the busiest in his three and a half decade career. The months of November and December will see Buffer in the ring almost every week right up to the year-end holiday season. “It’s been an unbelievable year but the next seven weeks have been booked with some great fights and on some weekends I had to pass on two and even three other offers,” says Buffer as big fights in Germany, Australia, Denmark and the UK put their requests in too late. Buffer’s international schedule has had him working in Russia five times, China four times, the UK four times, three in Germany and a couple of trips to Monaco. (continue reading…)

Rodney Berman of South Africa’s Golden Gloves has confirmed that Hall of Famer, Michael Buffer will be doing ring-announcing duties for the final of the “Monte Carlo Million Dollar Super Four” tournament in Monaco on July 13.

Berman says it is only fitting that the legendary announcer, known for his catchphrase “Let’s Get Ready To Rumble”, does duty at such a major tournament. “He is a true professional and perhaps the only announcer whose presence resonates internationally,” said Berman. “He’ll be one of a number of stars at the final.”

Berman confirmed that WBA and IBO middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, who fought on the first card in March, will attend the final.

An invitation has also been extended to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko to attend, not least to support countrymen Max Bursak and Dmytro Kucher, who fight on the “Million Dollar” undercard.

Golden Gloves intends upon developing a carnival theme in the buildup with meet-and-greet sessions and autograph signings adding to the mystique and magic of Monte Carlo.

Hot-running Edwin Rodriguez (23-0, 15 KOs) of the US and Denis Grachev (13-1-1, 8 KOs) of Russia will meet in the “Super Four” final for a US $1-million purse, to be split 60/40.

Co-headlining be the title fight between WBA and IBO light-welterweight holder Khabib Allakhverdiev (18-0, 8 KOs) and former champion Souleymane M’baye (40-4-1, 22 KOs).

On the undercard, European middleweight champion Max Bursak (26-1-1, 12 KOs) will defend against the UK’s Prince Arron (23-4-1, 5 KOs), while Ilunga Makabu (13-1, 13 KOs) and undefeated Dmytro Kucher (21-0, 15 KOs) will fight for Kucher’s WBC International cruiserweight belt.
