Loeffler: GGG delivering Fighter of the Year performance

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“If GGG can beat Danny Jacobs and Canelo… and potentially fight one more time this year, I think that’s a Fighter of The Year performance. When you have a great year (in boxing), when you have fights like Klitschko-Joshua, a fight like this, Canelo vs. GGG, the Danny Jacobs fight, the SuperFly show, such a great year for boxing. This really seems to be the peak of the year,” said Golovkin’s promoter Tom Loeffler in a Fightnews.com® interview. “This is the closest odds we ever had for a GGG fight. This makes that a compelling fight. If he performs the way we think Gennady will perform, he said that he wants to fight one more time this year. We already have something that could be interesting for the end of the year…”

Golden Boy President Eric Gomez: Hard work paid off

By Hesiquio Balderas

Eric Gomez, the president of Golden Boy Promotions, had a few minutes to talk to Fightnews.com® about his company, the struggles, and Canelo vs. Golovkin.

“We are finally here,” said Gomez. “It’s fight week, it’s a big event… I am very happy, very excited. A few years ago we were struggling, a lot of people didn’t believe in us. Some media members said we were done. The company was suffering, a lot of people left us, we had no fighters but we did what we know best and that’s to work hard. And “Oscar de la Hoya who is a great brand and was a great fighter reinvented himself. We worked hard as a company with what we had left and we are now here in Las Vegas.

Lee annihilates Quattrocchi in one

By Craig Wick at ringside

In the ballyhooed lead-up to the CBS Sports Network televised “Rosemont Rumble: Going for 20-0,” the only thing left unsaid was the manner in which undefeated light heavyweight contender Mike Lee (20-0, 11 KOs) would dispose of his opponent, Aaron Quattrocchi (10-2-1, 5 KOs), in their scheduled 10-round contest. The fact that Quattrocchi was hand-picked for the momentous occasion was of little concern to the legion of Lee fans that filled the ‘Dome at the Ballpark’ in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, IL, Friday night. And true to form, “Mendoza Mike,” as in Notre Dame’s College of Business, picked up his 20th win and perhaps propelled himself into a big money fight as a result.

Now for the bout’s highlights: A passive Quattrocchi down twice from right hands to the chin and stopped at 2:32 from a follow-up Lee flurry. There you have it! Continue reading “Lee annihilates Quattrocchi in one”

Fortuna Outpoints Javier

By Robert Coster

Former two division world champion, WBA#4, IBF#8 Javier Fortuna (33-1-1, 23 KOs) won a clear-cut 10 round decision over fellow Dominican jr lightweight Nicolas Javier (16-1, 9 KOs) in Santo Domingo. Fortuna hurt his right hand in the very first round and had practically to fight one-handed the rest of the bout. In spite of this handicap, Fortuna scored a knockdown in the 5th round and pitched a shutout decision over his young opponent. Said Fortuna after the fight, “I would have liked to score a knockout but hurting my ring hand so early in the fight changed my game plan.”

In another bout, former lightweight title challenger Argenis Lopez (22-1-1, 7 KOs) returned to ring action after a 9-month layoff to score an unpopular decision over Venezuelan veteran Pedro Verdu (20-17-3, 14 KOs).
