Parker-Joshua Camps In Talks…

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker could be IBF, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua’s next opponent now that Eddie Hearn and David Higgins have had preliminary talks. Otherwise, Australia’s former WBA champion Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne will likely get the opportunity for a WBO challenge.

”There is interest from the Joshua camp which is why we’re talking to them now,” Parker told the Herald. “He’s my preferred option. Everyone wants to fight him but I honestly think in his last performance he didn’t look the best. I didn’t look the best in my last performance because of the style I had in front of me. I think his style matches mine perfectly and I honestly think I can knock him out. Continue reading “Parker-Joshua Camps In Talks…”

Horn: Don’t underestimate me!

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn says people shouldn’t count him out when he defends the championship against the mandatory contender Terrance Crawford in 2018. “Everyone should learn not to underestimate me,” Horn told The Daily Telegraph.”That’s one of my biggest strengths. People underestimate me and then I win. Nobody is going to take this belt away from me cheaply!”

Horn also discussed his promotional arrangement with Hall of Fame Promoter Bob Arum.

“Bob Arum wants one of his fighters to hold onto that belt. He’s got a two-fight deal with me, so Terence Crawford would be my last one. It depends if we are going to renegotiate a contract or whether he wants Terence to win because he’s a Top Rank fighter,” Horn said. Continue reading “Horn: Don’t underestimate me!”

“I always beat people on Plan A – I don’t even have to go to Plan B but I am going to pull tricks out of the hat so I can show people what a real heavyweight looks like with the skills I have. Nobody moves like me in the heavyweight division. My ring IQ is definitely unbeatable and on November 11 you are going to see a different style of Big Baby and it’s going to be fun…I am the Big Baby, but I am going to give him the pacifier and put him in the crib!”

The 12th Round: Movember

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

I am growing a mustache for the first time in my life. This is to join the Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and the campaign “Movember.” We all need to take a step forward and make sure we all take prevention as a norm and have regular medicals. Cancer is our enemy but if detected early can be battled and defeated.

What a statement by our proud WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder. While a few choose to criticize and question Stiverne, I praise Wilder. Athletic, strong and fast. I have not seen a heavyweight throw the jab with such sharpness and precision since Larry Holmes.

Wilder told me “I want Joshua next – Make it happen!”

Stiverne was timing the jab and was moving his head very well waiting for the right moment to counter, the came the Bomb, a right hand which connected right on the chin through Stiverne’s gloves and down he went. Wilder stood on top of him screaming “get up,” made me remember Muhammad Ali, but Wilder screamed with such fury and anxiety, it was no show, it was real…. Stiverne got up and was dropped again and again. First round Knockout, just like the good old times of Mike Tyson! Continue reading “The 12th Round: Movember”

Wilder: I just want to prove that I am the best

By Matt Richardson

“It was a magical night tonight.”

Those were the words of WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder early Sunday morning in a back room of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Approximately one hour earlier Wilder (39-0, 38 KO’s) violently knocked out former title-holder Bermane Stiverne in just less than three minutes.

It was the type of definitive knockout that boxing fans love and it was the type of performance, Wilder said, that illustrates his position as one of the elite heavyweights in the world.

“I’m just ready to prove that I am the best,” Wilder said at the post-fight press conference. “That’s all I want. Of course Stiverne, for some, wasn’t the best. You know, some already predicted…I said I was going to knock him out and I did that. And now…over and over again I keep sending messages out to the heavyweight division that I am the man to beat. I am the most feared. I do hit the hardest. I am who I say I am. I don’t speak – I don’t say things just to say it because people have cameras in my face or people have…you know what I’m trying to say,” Wilder said as his voice trailed off.

While the once languishing Oregon pro boxing scene has undergone a strong revival in recent years, it’s been over a decade since a professional event has taken place in the city of Portland, the most heavily populated area in the state.

Working under their newly formed promotional banner 2 Pounds Sports and Entertainment, their first event will take place at the Jackson Armory and feature a nine-bout pro-am line-up, featuring regional talent.

It was easy work for Albert Bell in his lightweight fight vs. Charles Mulindwa at the Night of Boxing Championship III. Bell wasted no time jumping weight classes on his opponent. Referee Jamie Howe was forced to wave off the fight as Mulindwa stumbled and was not throwing punches. The TKO in Round 1 at the 1:09 mark improves Bell to (9-0, 3 KO’s), as Mulindwa falls to (12-5-1, 5 KO’s).

Before the main event started at the Seagate Convention Center, Pulse Boxing and Bell invited victims of gun violence in the City of Toledo into the ring. “Gun violence is something I take very seriously and want to bring awareness to. My best friend was murdered. It’s something close to my heart,” Bell stated. Continue reading “Quick Work for Albert Bell in Toledo”

Former world challenger and ex-OPBF/WBO ASPAC featherweight champ, WBA #11 Hiroshige Osawa (32-4-4, 19 KOs), 126, engaged in his second comeback bout since his ambitious confrontation with Oscar Valdez with the vacant WBO belt at stake resulting in a seventh round TKO defeat in Las Vegas in November 2016, floored Indonesian titlist Erick Deztroyer (11-6-1, 2 KOs), 125.5, in the fourth and pounded out a shutout decision (all 80-71) over eight rounds on Sunday in Sanda, Japan.

Japanese heavyweight prospect, WBO#7/WBC#17 Kyotaro Fujimoto (18-1, 10 KOs), 222.75, impressively retained his OPBF and WBO ASPAC (Asia Pacific) belts when he made good use of fast footwork and hand speed, caught up with game Australian challenger OPBF#4 Randall Rayment (8-4, 3 KOs), 233.75, and sunk him for the count at 2:50 of the fifth round.

Rayment, having upset Herman Purcell (who lost to Kyotaro via TKO route with the vacant WBO ASPAC belt on the line) this July, was three inches taller and some ten pounds heavier than the fleet-footed champ.

Vargas, 6’3 225 pounds, dropped Brown with a vicious body shot in the first minute.

Wilder crushes Stiverne in one

By Matt Richardson at ringside
Photos: Emily Harney

WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) absolutely destroyed former world champion Bermane Stiverne (25-3-1, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Wilder dropped Stiverne three times in round one.

In the past 18 months, Wilder had seen two major title defenses scrapped when his opponents failed drug tests prior to fight night. Gone were two significant paydays and, perhaps most importantly, two opportunities to prove that he was more than just a hard puncher and another American heavyweight hope.

So, it would’ve been understandable if Wilder, who won his belt from Bermane Stiverne almost three years ago, would’ve entered the ring on Saturday night in Brooklyn in a rematch with Stiverne and underperformed. He was entitled to an off-night considering how his career has stalled as of late.

But that’s not what Wilder did. Continue reading “Wilder crushes Stiverne in one”

The opening rounds saw both men try to control the center of the ring with Kondo willing to trade with Lipinets in order to find his counter-punching opportunities.
