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. Who lands the big punch first? It is not a fight. It is a war.”

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.

“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.”

Early Superfly Results from LA

By David Robinett and Rocky Morales at ringside

Former three time world champ, Brian “Hawaiian Punch” Viloria (38-5, 23KO), showed he still has a lot left in his 36 year old tank while stopping talented Philly fighter, Miguel Cartagena (15-4-1, 6KO). It was an all action bout with the 25 year old Cartagena showing no respect to the elder Viloria.

They fought pretty evenly through the opening three rounds but in the fourth round, the superior experience of Viloria started to show and he badly staggered Cartagena. Viloria tried his best to get the stoppage in the fourth round and he very nearly did but Cartagena held and threw back just enough for the referee to allow the fight to continue. Viloria, however, tasted blood and went for the kill in the fifth round and with Cartagena no longer able to defend himself, the referee waved off the bout to give Viloria the technical knockout victory. Viloria looks solid in victory and appears ready for yet another title challenge. Continue reading “Early Superfly Results from LA”
