Unbeaten former IBF 154-pound world champion Jermall Charlo and WBC #1 rated Jorge Sebastian Heiland meet in a WBC middleweight title eliminator that serves as the co-feature on Saturday night’s big SHOWTIME card in Brooklyn featuring Adrien Broner against Mikey Garcia. The winner between Charlo and Heiland will be the mandatory challenger for the GGG-Canelo winner.

Jermall Charlo: As I debut in New York, I’m ready to steal the show and put on a great show. I know he came here all the way from his hometown to shut my career down and everything that I’ve worked hard with, so I’m prepared for everything he has to offer.

Jorge Sebastian Heiland: I know Charlo is a great fighter. But I don’t feel like the underdog because I have confidence in my job. I have my experience and I train. I have great training camp back home. And as I said before, I came here prepared for a battle and I am on a course to be the winner. So if you guys consider me the underdog, I really don’t care.

By Marco Bratusch at ringside

Heavily against all the odds, question-mark Russian fighter Viktor Poyakov (13-1-1, 6 KOs) pulled out the upset in Rome beating the fan-favorite and former WBA world regular titlist Giovanni De Carolis (24-8-1, 12 KOs).

Chavez Jr to return in 2017?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr said on social media that there’s a possibility of him returning in 2017 against former world title challenger Martin Murray in October at super middleweight. Murray responded and said he wants the fight. Las Vegas and Texas were floated as possible locations.

Junior is coming off a disappointing catch-weight loss to archrival Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on May 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. After that bout, Chavez stated he was weight-drained and had no energy.

WBA light-flyweight champ Ryoichi Taguchi (26-2-2, 12 KOs), 108, impressively kept his belt when he positively kept battering mandatory challenger Robert Barrera (18-2, 12 KOs), 108, Colombia, from the outset and finally halted him with the referee’s intervention at 0:24 of the ninth round on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan.


Taguchi, making his sixth defense, had the upper hand over the switch-hitting challenger, who occasionally retaliated with light but fast combinations. Taguchi, however, remained more aggressive, pinning Barrera to the ropes with persistent body attacks that apparently weakened the fading Colombian. Continue reading “Full Report: Taguchi-Barrera”

Today’s EBU bids and updates

By Marco Bratusch

At today’s EBU bid that bestowed the right for staging the next, vacant European jr middleweight title between co-challengers Orlando Fiordigiglio (27-1, 12 KOs) and Zakaria Attou (25-6-2, 7 KOs), French boxing promotion Europrom of Gerard Teysseron outbid Italian Boxe Loreni offering the handsome sum of 65,001 Euros against 44,080 Euros, to be split 50/50 between the contenders. The belt became vacant at the beginning of June, when former champion Cedric Vitu – the only winner against Italian Fiordigiglio in 2015 when he won the vacant belt – decided to unfasten it from his waist after becoming the new IBF mandatory challenger. Attou, aged 35 compared with Fiordigilio’s 33, is the former European Union (EU) titlist, a belt he earned in his rematch against Emanuel Della Rosa last September and that he defended once. Europrom will release date and venue of the aforementioned bout in the following weeks. Continue reading “Today’s EBU bids and updates”

Unbeaten Adames aims to send a message

By Robert Coster

The Dominican Republic’s newest boxing idol is Carlos Adames, a 23-year-old unbeaten welterweight (11-0, 10 KOs) ranked 6th by the WBA. On Wednesday in Santo Domingo, Adames will be facing the biggest challenge of his young career. He will be defending his WBA Fedelatin title against former IBF super welterweight world champion Carlos Molina (28-6-2, 8 KOs) of Mexico. Molina is unbeaten in the past three years since losing his IBF crown and is now ranked WBC #7 and IBF #13 as a welterweight.


Flanked by his promoter/manager Jorge Luis Herasme, Carlos Adames commented, “I know it’s a giant step going against a former world champion and not a has-been but someone on the top of his game like Carlos Molina. I have seen video of his last fight and he’s one heck of a boxer. But I also know that I’m ready. Beating Molina will send a message to everybody in the welterweight division: Carlos Adames is for real and ready to fight the best!” Continue reading “Unbeaten Adames aims to send a message”

Ex-champ De Carolis ready for return

By Marco Bratusch

Former WBA super middleweight title holder Giovanni De Carolis (24-7-1, 12 KOs) will finally have his comeback fight tomorrow night in Rome, taking on Russian Viktor Polyakov (12-1-1, 6 KOs) for the vacant WBA International belt. The bout represents the first fight in De Carolis’ hometown after more than two years, a period that the boxer filled fighting abroad German boxers as Vincent Feigenbutz and Tyron Zeuge, twice respectively. In his last outing, De Carolis left the belt in the hands of Zeuge, current holder of the WBA “regular” title, who won by TKO in round 12.

“That loss is still hurting me. I was not in my best condition. I felt strong physically but my mind was somewhere else due to some personal issues I was experiencing during the last couple of weeks,” De Carolis told Fightnews.com®. “By the way, I do not want to take anything away from my opponent who fought a solid performance, but I could have done way better than that. Fighting in Rome again is a dream for me, and we are working hard to obtain another world title shot soon, this time possibly in my city, of course.” Continue reading “Ex-champ De Carolis ready for return”

South Africa’s DeeJay Kriel produced a mature performance to win the vacant WBC International minimumweight title when he scored a 12 round unanimous points decision over Dexter Alimento from the Philippines at the Emperors Casino near Kempton Park on Sunday afternoon.

The southpaw Alimento (47.40kg) made a fast start as he attacked to the body through the first two rounds but Kriel (47. 15kg) who was having his first title fight and 12 rounder calmly backed off holding his gloves high to absorb anything thrown at him through the next few rounds before he started picking off the Filipino to take the middle rounds.

Wlodarczyk: Nothing to lose, I will not disappoint

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“I was just 25 years old when I became a world champion. Recently, I looked at my first belt, lying somewhere in a utility room … and I liked the feeling. It brought back great memories,” said former IBF/WBC cruiserweight champion Krzysztof Włodarczyk (53-3, 37 KOs). “Diablo” just started his training camp in Warszawa (Poland) before his first World Boxing Super Series fight against current IBF champ, undefeated Murat Gassiev (24-0, 17 KO).

“I have nothing to lose. I will do everything what I can, everything, to not disappoint myself. Whatever happens in the end, it’s God’s will anyway” stated Włodarczyk.

WBA 108lb champ Taguchi stops #1 Barrera

By Joe Koizumi

WBA light-flyweight champ Ryoichi Taguchi (26-2-2, 12 KOs), 108, impressively kept his belt when he positively kept battering mandatory challenger Robert Barrera (18—2, 12 KOs), 108, Colombia, from the outset and finally halted him with the referee’s intervention at 0:24 of the ninth round on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan. Taguchi, making his sixth defense, had the upper hand over the switch-hitting challenger, who occasionally retaliated with light but fast combinations.

Taguchi, however, remained more aggressive, pinning Barrera to the ropes with persistent body attacks that apparently weakened the fading Colombian. Taguchi, in round seven, turned loose to hurt Barrera with furious combinations but the game challenger refused to go down by showing his heart. Having overwhelmed and overpowered Barrera with his accelerated attacks, Taguchi had him in great trouble in the eighth. The referee Russell Mora, US, gave a strong warning to Barrera for his repeated holding to avert the champ’s hot rallies in the closing seconds of the eighth session. As Taguchi went for a kill in round nine, the third man finally called a halt to stop the one-sided proceedings even without a knockdown.
