Browne/Hatton turn down bout on Joshua undercard

Hatton Promotions have turned down short notice proposals from Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn in respect of a twitter proposed bout on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s Cardiff bout on 28th October. The proposed bout was heating up on twitter with the pair both very vocal on the platform and evidently with no love lost. However, in the end, Ricky has confirmed that it simply was not possible.

“I got an offer from Eddie exactly 7 weeks out from the fight. I know why he does it. He protects his fighters and brings the money to the table late in the day to give his fighters maximum advantage. I don’t think any of Whyte’s opponents since Joshua have had a full camp. There is no one better in the business at the minute at working the angles with the fans, social media and getting the job done. But equally we are in a position where we must do what is best for our fighter and we have decided not to bow to the pressure”. Continue reading “Browne/Hatton turn down bout on Joshua undercard”

Chepo: Canelo IS Mexican

Both Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin said they didn’t have much to say in Wednesday’s final press conference before Saturday’s middleweight title showdown in Las Vegas. The best zinger came from Jose “Chepo” Reynoso, Canelo’s manager and trainer.

“I want to close with a dedication to my friend Abel Sanchez. He says Triple G has a Mexican style. But I tell Abel that not only does Canelo have a Mexican style and a Mexican heart, but he IS Mexican!”

New opponent for JoJo Diaz

Undefeated Featherweight Rafael “Big Bang” Rivera (25-0-2, 16 KOs) will step in to fight 2012 U.S. Olympian Joseph “JoJo” Diaz, Jr. (24-0, 13 KOs) in a 12-round WBC title eliminator as the co-main event to the Canelo-Golovkin clash Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena. Rivera is replacing Jorge Lara, who had to bow out due to reasons that have not been verified.

Rivera was originally supposed to fight Diaz on Saturday’s card, but was forced to step aside for Lara, due to Lara being higher-ranked by the WBC. Rivera has already been training for a fight next week, and is in tip-top shape for his showdown with Diaz. Continue reading “New opponent for JoJo Diaz”

Today’s EBU bids and Updates

By Marco Bratusch

European light-heavyweight title holder Karo Murat (31-3-1, 20 KOs) will take on countryman Dominic Boesel (24-1, 9 KOs) again on December 16 in Germany as a voluntary defense of his belt. In the meanwhile, Boesel should compete in a minor comeback fight to recover from the loss suffered in the first bout against Murat to become eligible for a voluntary defense, according to the EBU rules. Murat won the vacant belt in a minor upset stopping the formerly undefeated 27-year-old Boesel in round eleven last July in Dresden, Germany, in the final part of a pretty balanced bout.

Iwasa stops Oguni in six, wins IBF 122lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Japanese southpaw Ryosuke Iwasa (24-2, 16 KOs), 121.75, was awarded the IBF 122-pound belt when he dropped defending champ, compatriot Yukinori Oguni (19-2-1, 7 KOs), 121.75, once in the first, twice more in the second, controlled the contest despite the champ’s retaliation and finally halted him due to the ring physician’s advice at 2:16 of the sixth session on Wednesday in Osaka, Japan.

Iwasa was leading on points on all cards—Alan Davis (US) 48-44, Takeshi Shimakawa, Katsuhiro Nakamura (both Japan) both 49-43. Oguni was badly bleeding from the mouth, and he might have had the jaw broken, having absorbed much punishment. He couldn’t see and avert the southpaw’s swift lefts coming at all though he kept on gamely fighting back hard. The ref was Wayne Hedgepatch (US).

Tanaka keeps WBO 108lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten WBO junior flyweight champion Kosei Tanaka (10-0, 6 KOs), 108, came off the canvas in the first round, fought back hard by utilizing his shifty footwork, dropped back Palangpol CP Freshmart (24-8, 10 KOs), 107.5, and finally halted him at 1:27 of the ninth round on Wednesday in Osaka, Japan.

It was surprising that Tanaka, the prohibitive favorite, hit the deck due to the Thailander’s sharp left-right combination in the end of the opening round. Tanaka, 22, tried to outbox and outpunch the challenger from the second on, hitting him upstairs and downstairs. Palangpol turned loose in the sixth, but Tanaka accelerated his attack and caught him with a beautiful combo followed by a solid right, decking Palaongpol to the canvas in the ninth. The Thailander barely resumed fighting, and Tanaka swarmed over him with a flurry of punches, when referee Roberto Ramirez Jr. (Puerto Rico) declared a well-timed halt. Prior to the stoppage, the official tallies were as follows: Gerard While (US), Jose Roberto Torres (Puerto Rico) both 77-74, William Lerch (US) 76-75, all for the defending champ. Tanaka had the left optic swollen after the first-round visit to the deck and the right eyebrow cut in the fourth, which made it look a tough affair for him.

Monroe: I’ll make Saunders pay for mouthing off

Willie Monroe Jr is prepared to make Billy Joe Saunders pay for shouting his mouth off. The two southpaws battle it out for Billy Joe’s WBO middleweight crown at London’s Copper Box Arena on Saturday night, live on BT Sport and BoxNation. Saunders has been shooting from the lip in the build-up, questioning the manner of Monroe’s loss against Gennady Golovkin in May 2015. Saunders says Monroe Jr went down too easy under pressure.

“Billy Joe is a good fighter, but his talking is going to make his ass whipping worse,” warned 30-year-old Monroe Jr. “That was 2015. This is 2017. I’m not here to dwell on the past. I gave a good account of myself, but at that moment he may have been too big of a moment for me. Continue reading “Monroe: I’ll make Saunders pay for mouthing off”

GGG, Canelo Grand Arrivals

Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) and WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) made their grand arrivals Tuesday at the MGM Grand Resort and Casino in Las Vegas ahead of their highly anticipated PPV clash on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena.


Canelo Alvarez: “I can assure you that I will do my part and I will do my best to give you all a beautiful fight. The most important thing for me is victory. I always prepare myself to give the best. I want this for my people, my team, for my country. And that’s what I’m going to do this Saturday. I’m going to go in there and win the fight. I prepared myself for the knockout. Look, anything can happen in this fight. But that’s what I’ve prepared for–to knock him out.”


Gennady Golovkin: “I am Gennady Golovkin until I walk into the ring. And that’s when I turn into Triple G. It’s not that I’m mean, or angry. I’m just more focused. This is the perfect fight for fans. And the perfect fight for me. I will enjoy it…I’ve wanted him [Alvarez] because of the Cotto fight when he became the mandatory challenger. I’m old school. I think there should just be one champion. All my career I’ve been denied the fights I’ve wanted [Felix Sturm, Sergio Martinez, Miguel Cotto]. That ends Saturday night.”

Golovkin: I have Mexican blood

Gennady Golovkin: “This is more than a fight. It’s a real Mexican fight. Abel brings a Mexican style to me. I love fighting Mexican style. I love Mexican food and eat it every day. I love the Mexican tradition. I am surrounded by it. I have many Mexican friends. I have Mexican blood…seriously, just one punch changes a fight…a life. Just one punch. Canelo has power, he has speed. He knows me, I know him. My team has Plan A, B, C, D. And his team has the same. He’s ready for short distance, long distance, decision. I do not know.

Trainer promises a new Saunders

Billy Joe Saunders defends his WBO Middleweight World title against Willie Monroe Jr on Saturday night Jr at London’s Copper Box Arena. Saunders’ trainer Dominic Ingle believes his man will show this weekend why he’s the man to topple middleweight superstars Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

Ingle answered an SOS call from promoter Frank Warren three months ago to train Billy Joe whose lifestyle has contributed to lacklustre performances, but still remained unbeaten in 24 fights.

“He came in the camp fat and unfit,” admitted Ingle. Continue reading “Trainer promises a new Saunders”

The 12th Round: Boxing at its Best

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

While the world was praying for all those involved in the drama of hurricane Irma and also remembering the tragic anniversary of WTC today 9/11, we must be grateful for what we have and appreciate every moment we have while making the best of it.

Friday night a new star was born. David Benavidez conquered the WBC super middleweight championship by split decision against Ronald Gavril in Las Vegas. Benavidez is the youngest to ever win a super middleweight title at the tender age of 20 and has a bright future in the ring.

Saturday night was magical. StubHub Center in Carson, California, home of some classics in the history of boxing, hosted yet another historic event named “Superfly” featuring 4 fights in that division. Brian Viloria is back on track on his road to fight for a world championship after winning by impressive KO, Inoue defended his WBO title with a TKO victory after a dominating and masterful performance and the other two bouts are some of the best of the year and best ever in the lower divisions.

Golovkin: Everyone will remember this fight

Gennady Golovkin: This wasn’t like Canelo not being ready. It was Golden Boy not being ready. We have been talking about this fight for three years. Finally Canelo AND Golden Boy are ready for this fight. First step to history. Everyone will remember this fight. It is the biggest fight of all.”

Abel Sanchez: “I have trained a lot of fighters. A lot. But I have never worked with one who was avoided more than Gennady. The special fighters accept challenges or dare to step up and make the challenge. It’s the measure of the man. It is the difference between good and great. Ali stepped up against Liston. Leonard stepped up against Hagler. Holyfield stepped up against Tyson. These are fights and fighters that will always be remembered because they dared to be tested at the highest level regardless of risk. Now, at last, we have Gennady against Canelo, a real Mexican fight. I give Canelo credit because he has always wanted this fight. I am relieved that his promoter finally had the confidence to make it.”
