By Billy Luppert

On Saturday night, Golden Boy Promotions comes the Marina Bay SportsPlex in Quincy, MA headlined by Former Marine Marc “Bazooka” DeLuca facing late sub Ramses Agaton in a scheduled 8 round Jr. Middleweight bout. The card will be televised on ESPN2 at 10pm ET and 10:30pm ET on ESPN Deportes.

While the hometown fighter DeLuca will certainly be the crowd favorite, it’s a fighter on the undercard who will be looking to steal the show.

Middleweight Yamaguchi Falcao who won a bronze medal representing Brazil in the 2012 Olympics, and is currently ranked #13 by the WBC. Undefeated in 14 professional fights, Falcao is looking to put the division on notice Saturday night as he fights 49 fight veteran Richard Gutierrez of Columbia in a bout scheduled for 8 rounds.

NSAC Executive Director: Canelo is guilty

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Bob Bennett has filed an official Complaint for Disciplinary Action against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez for testing positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol. The complaint states that whether intentional or not, “by allowing Clenbuterol to enter his system, Alvarez engaged in conduct that reflected discredit to unarmed combat and he is guilty of foul or unsportsmanlike conduct that was detrimental to a contest.”

Based on the allegations, Bennett is asking that the Commission impose a period of ineligibility against Alvarez pursuant to NSAC guidelines. This could result in a suspension as short as six months from the date of the infraction, which would make Canelo eligible to fight again in September. The Commission will address the issue in April.

Canelo is scheduled for a rematch against Gennady Golovkin on May 5. The bout is still officially on, but the venue is already issuing refunds.

Hatton: I can see Joshua stopping him

Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton is convinced heavyweight hero Anthony Joshua will write another chapter in British boxing’s golden era in Cardiff on Saturday night. Joshua looks to add Joseph Parker’s WBO belt to his IBF and WBA Super titles at the Principality Stadium and Hatton said: “I can’t see anything other than a Joshua win. Parker has quick hands for a heavyweight and he could give Joshua problems for a few rounds. But can he do it for 12 rounds is the question. I don’t think he can.

GGG-Canelo 2 Update (trouble brewing?)

By Miguel Maravilla

The much anticipated rematch between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) of Mexico and Kazakhstan’s WBC, WBA, IBF middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) is in jeopardy sources have reported. The fight is scheduled to take place May 5th live on HBO Pay Per View at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, site of their first fight last September.

However, Canelo was suspended last week by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and is scheduled to appear for a hearing April 10th after twice testing positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol earlier this month. Canelo and his team issued a statement that the traces were due to contaminated meat in which there have been multiple confirmed cases in Mexico.

One major clue: T-Mobile Arena is offering refunds for those who purchased tickets according to MGM Grand officials. Continue reading “GGG-Canelo 2 Update (trouble brewing?)”
