By Miguel Maravilla

Undisputed WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) looks to be fighting at a new venue for his Cinco De Mayo (May 5th) fight. On Monday, it was reported that the StubHub Center in Carson, California would host Golovkin’s next fight opposed to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Golovkin was originally scheduled to take on Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. However, with all the latest surrounding Canelo and his two positive test for the banned substance Clenbuterol last month, Canelo withdrew from the fight.

Now the question remains who will be Golovkin’s next opponent. Continue reading “GGG fight moved to StubHub…against Vanes?”

EBU purse bid and updates

By Marco Bratusch

Italy’s cruiserweight puncher Fabio Turchi (14-0, 11 KOs) embraced a new opponent in order to fight for the vacant European Union (EU) 200-pound belt as last week the EBU appointed Brit Luke Watkins as the other co-challenger. Previously, Danish fighter Micki Nielsen had relinquished his mandatory position, leaving Turchi momentarily without a designated opponent for such title. “The Duke” Watkins (13-0, 9 KOs) has fought a streak of decent domestic opponents during 2017 and he is undefeated, meaning that a fight with Turchi can bring on the table a telling test for both men. The purse bid has been set for next Monday, April 16. Meanwhile, it is cleared that the southpaw Turchi will be fighting again in the US on June 2nd under The Real Deal banner owned by former heavyweight world champion Evander Holyfield.

Boxing Back at MotorCity Casino-Hotel

By Bob Ryder

Boxing returns to the Sound Board inside MotorCity Casino-Hotel this Friday night as Detroit’s own Winfred “Hot Boy” Harris looks to continue his rise thorough the middleweight ranks when he battles Mexico’s Aaron Garcia in the eight round main event of a scheduled eleven bout card. Harris (16-0, 9 KOs) has mostly steam rolled through his opponents thus far and seasoned Garcia (16-7-1, 11 KOs) is somewhat of a step up in competition for him. Harris will look to impress his hometown fans but may have to work harder in this one than he has in some of his recent contests. Continue reading “Boxing Back at MotorCity Casino-Hotel”

Khan: Lo Greco an idiot, will be put in his place

Amir Khan says that the personal attack from Phil Lo Greco in the build-up to their clash on April 21 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, has fuelled his fire in training camp. Khan is back in England from training in San Francisco and is ready to lace them up for the first time in nearly two years – and in his first fight at home since April 2013 – against the Canadian. ESPN+ will televise in the U.S.

“He got personal at the press conference and that’s not right,” said Khan. “He’s going to pay for that. Talk about boxing, talk about me getting KO’d or getting beat – but going into my personal life is disrespectful and that’s made me angry.

“I want to show him who’s boss and put it on him, he needs to watch what he says. He’s an idiot and he’s going to be put in his place on April 21. Continue reading “Khan: Lo Greco an idiot, will be put in his place”

Warren: Fury would jab Joshua silly

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

According to Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren, former WBA, WBO, IBF heavyweight champion Tyson Fury would defeat current WBA, WBO, IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. ”For me, he (Fury) is head and shoulders above the rest and a far superior operator, even though he has still got it all to prove again,” said Warren. “Could you see Joshua controlling Tyson like he did Parker? I can’t see it. He would jab him silly. In fairness to him, Joshua did mention Tyson in his post-fight interview and it is becoming more and more obvious that AJ is about the only sane one there!”

Tyner tops Byrd in Ypsilanti, Michigan

By Brad Snyder The Undercard
Photos by Bob Ryder

Welterweight Lanardo Tyner is a boxing fan’s fighter. Perhaps, the common fan may have not heard of him. But the Michigan faithful hear his vicious body shots echo throughout the gym and sporting venues long after his fights.

If you have been lucky enough to see Larnardo “Pain Server” Tyner fight, there is no mistaking his love for the sport. He is, by far, the biggest talker in the ring and, as a matter of fact, outside the ring, as well. More importantly, he likes to be hit. But don’t be fooled. He likes to be hit, then hit back.

Lara: I thought I clearly won the fight

“Besides the last round, I thought I was winning this fight easily,” said Erislandy Lara, who lost his WBA super welterweight title to IBF champ Jarrett Hurd on Saturday night in Las Vegas. “That’s not to decide the fight. I was winning the fight. One punch in a fight doesn’t determine the fight. It was a great fight for the fans. I stood there, fought and it was fun. I thought I clearly won the fight. Once again a decision goes against me, but h​ey we just have to do the rematch.”

Hurd stated, “It was a tough one, but I went out there and did exactly what I said I was going to do – fight all 12 rounds and get the victory. I didn’t feel like (I needed the knockdown). I feel like I was in control the whole fight, applying the pressure.”

Minamoto upsets Ohashi, wins Japan 126lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

Underdog Taiki Minamoto (15-5, 12 KOs), 126, captured the Japanese featherweight belt when he battered and bloodied defending champ Takenori Ohashi (15-5-2, 10 KOs), 125.75, and finally halted him at 1:12 of the seventh round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

Ohashi, making his first defense, wrested the national title in bizarre fashion as the then champ Kosuke Saka misunderstood the signal ten seconds before the end of the fifth as the bell and was about to return to his corner with his hands down only to be badly knocked out by Ohashi’s vicious right hook last December.

Hurd drops Lara late to unify WBA and IBF titles

Photos: Stephanie Trapp/SHOWTIME

In a tough, gritty WBA/IBF super welterweight unification clash, IBF champ Jarrett Hurd (22-0, 15 KOs) scored a twelfth round knockdown to take the title of WBA champ Erislandy Lara (25-2-2, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at “The Joint” inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The much larger Hurd stalked and punished Lara, who punished him back with counter shots. Hurd upped the tempo down the stretch, dropping Lara in round twelve to get the margin of victory. Scores were 114-113 Lara, 114-113, 114-113 Hurd. Without the late knockdown, the result would have been a draw.
