“We, Tanaka and I, express our utmost appreciation of your precious guidance and leadership in Tanaka having acquired the WBO 105-pound and 108-pound championships, and sincerely wish that the WBO will newly rank Tanaka in the 112-pound category so that he will try to obtain his third WBO belt.” Continue reading “WBO 108lb champ Tanaka renounces his belt”

Hearn: Parker fight is the frontrunner

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is the front runner to challenging WBA, IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and the fight is closer to happening according to Eddie Hearn but world heavyweight contenders Dillian Whyte and Jarrell Miller could be back up fights if they Parker fight does not happen.

“There are two perfect fights for AJ. Parker and Deontay Wilder. The Wilder fight is unrealistic because of what they want. The Parker fight is a lot closer,” Hearn told SkySports. ”We may look at a WBA mandatory, Dillian Whyte or going to the States to fight Jarrell Miller…there are options but the aim is to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion.

”Parker is the frontrunner, he’s the guy we want. But we can’t be in a position where this goes on for three weeks then falls through.”

Spence-Peterson Kickoff Press Conference

Unbeaten IBF welterweight world champion Errol Spence Jr. and former champion Lamont Peterson went face-to-face for the first time Wednesday at a press conference in Brooklyn to discuss their world title showdown on January 20 at Barclays Center.

Errol Spence Jr: “You’re going to see the same Errol Spence that you’re used to. I can’t look ahead because I know how dangerous Lamont Peterson is. I’ve been in training camps with him and I know what he can do. I’ve seen too many fighters look down the road and get beat before they get to the big fight. I have to be 100 percent focused and hungry. I’m fully dedicated to this fight.

“Lamont can push me to even greater levels. I feel like he is a better fighter than Kell Brook and has even more heart than Kell Brook and he can bring out the best in me.”

Lamont Peterson: “This is a world title fight and I’m thankful for that. I try not to make too much out of each fight. I just want to take it one fight at a time. I’ve done this for 13 years as a professional. All fights are the same. I’m going to go in there and take care of business…I’m coming to win!”

The Moloney Bros: Boxing’s Latest Twin Act

By Boxing Bob Newman
Photo: Team Moloney

Boxing is always looking for a new storyline, something to grab the public’s attention. One angle that has played well over the years are boxing brothers. Early pioneers were the Baer brothers Max and Buddy, with Max reigning briefly was heavyweight champ. In the seventies were the Brothers Spinks- Leon and Michael. The eighties saw the Curry brothers Bruce and Donald, The Canizales crew Gaby and Orlando and the Thai twins Khaosai and Khaokor. More recently, the twin theme has played out with the Charlo Twins Jermall and Jermell both reigning simultaneously at super welterweight, holding the belts of rival organizations.

While at the recent WBA convention in Medellin, Colombia, Fightnews.com® was fortunate enough to meet Australian boxing manager Tony Tolj, who steers the careers of the latest prospects from Down Under, the Moloney Twins- Jason and Andrew. After the convention ended, and call was arranged so we could introduce the rest of the world to the latest twin sensations- Andrew and Jason Moloney.

Groves-Eubank Jr. Heating Up

Fiery words were exchanged at the kickoff press conference in London before the World Boxing Super Series semi-final bout between WBA super middleweight world champion George Groves (27-3, 20 KOs) and IBO beltholder Chris Eubank Jr. (26-1,20 KOs) at the Manchester Arena on February 17.

Chris Eubank Jr: “George seems to be hung up on what I’ll do. He needs to worry about himself. Thinking about me isn’t going to get him anywhere. I’m a man of my word and George, you will not see the end of the twelfth round…He doesn’t have the speed, his defense is poor and his stamina is average at best. The fact that he’s lacking in those things means he won’t be able to compete with me. I’m not a stepping stone. I’m Mount Everest and you’re not going to climb me.”

George Groves: “It’s a semifinal in a tournament I expect to win so it’s a stepping stone, another step on the way for me…Chris Eubank Jr. puts on a façade that he’s able to do everything himself, that he’s a one-man band. But it’s very difficult doing stuff on your own so we’ll see if he starts to make changes and adapt. He’ll have to. Obviously, this is his first really big fight, definitely at super middleweight, and I believe that he is going to fall short in a lot of categories.”

Selby aiming to get back on the boxing map

IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby makes the fourth defense of his belt against unbeaten Eduardo Ramirez at London’s Copper Box Arena on December 9th. 30-year-old slickster Selby has largely slipped beneath the radar in light of GB’s glut of recent world champions.

“As always, I’ll be fully prepared for whatever Ramirez brings,” stated Selby. “He’s a Mexican and they usually like to force the pace. He knows he’s unlikely to win the title by outboxing me over here.”
