They're Mad

"Mad" Max Heyman is scheduled to continue his comeback from a three-year layoff on Friday May 7, 2010 against "Mad" Mike Alderete. The bout is scheduled to take place at Isleta Casino & Resort in both fighters' hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Alderete was originally rumored to fight Heyman back in January, but the bout fell through.

According to New Mexico Boxing, Heyman said of Alderete, "He can’t box; he can’t bang. But he likes to talk trash. He also can’t punch." Alderete threatened to take Heyman out.

Heyman (23-10-4, 13 KOs), who is 30 years old, won his last fight against Roy Ashworth in January with a dominating sweep of the judges' scorecards. Alderete (6-4-2, 3 KOs), who is 29, hasn't entered a ring since last June, a draw against journeyman Theo Kruger. Alderete has been winless in his last five contests, going 0-3-2 in that span.
