Canelo: Golovkin no longer poses any challenge

WBA and WBC (franchise) middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez says he wants new challenges for his career, not a third fight with IBF middleweight king Gennady Golovkin.

“…I’m facing a pure world champion and going up two weight divisions and his opponents come from losing. He no longer poses any challenge. I’ve already beat him. I gave him 24 rounds and he couldn’t do it. What’s going to happen in the third fight? I’m going to beat him again. I’m even going to knock him out. It’s just business.” Continue reading “Canelo: Golovkin no longer poses any challenge”

Lomachenko to be next WBC franchise champion?

WBC interim lightweight champion Devon Haney says he might get elevated to full champion status, while current WBC lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko would be bumped up to WBC franchise champion.

“We’re waiting on the WBC to make their ruling,” said Haney on Saturday’s DAZN stream. “Either they’re gonna make Lomachenko the franchise champion and make me the WBC regular champion, or they’re gonna mandate the fight (between Loma and Haney).

“As of now, we don’t really know. We’re just waiting and towards the end of this month, we’ll see the decision they’re gonna make. But if they make me world champion, I’m happy with that. If they mandate the fight, I’m happy with that. All I wanna do is become world champion!”

So far, Canelo Alvarez is the only WBC franchise champion, a special status that offers privileges in regard to mandatory obligations, holding multiple titles and competing for titles of other organizations.

GGG: Very tough guy / D’chenko: I wanna rematch

Gennady Golovkin and Sergiy Derevyanchenko have commented on their epic war for the IBF middleweight title at Madison Square Garden in New York City

Gennady Golovkin: “I told you, he’s a very tough guy. This is huge experience for me. Right now, I understand I need more. Focus is boxing. This was a tough fight. I need a little bit more. I need to still get stronger in my camp. Just more serious. I need to work hard. I need a little bit more focus.

“Right now it’s bad day for me, it’s a huge day for Sergiy, his team. This is huge experience for me. Right now I know what I need exactly. I lost a little bit of focus. Sergiy was ready, I really respect him. He showed me such a big heart. I told him, Sergiy, this is best fight for me. It’s a huge experience. It’s maximum destroy. I just respect his team.

“Rematch? Absolutely. Big fight for DAZN, for the people, of course I’m ready. I’m a boxer, I’m ready for anything.

“Absolutely I still want Canelo, I’m just open to anybody. There are so many great champions here. Sergiy, a lot of guys. Everything is ready, just call Canelo. If he says yes, let’s do it.”

Sergiy Derevyanchenko: “The cut really changed the fight. I couldn’t see at times. And he was targeting the eye. But no excuses, it is what it is, I was trying my best. When I started moving, I felt like I was giving him room and I was getting hit with those shots that he threw and that’s why I started taking the fight to him and getting closer and not giving him room to maneuver.

“He hit me in the back of the head. He hit me behind the ear. I didn’t really see the punch but it didn’t really affect me that much. I got up and I wasn’t really hurt so I continued to fight, so it was nothing, nothing too bad.

“I would like the rematch if it’s possible, I’m ready.”

Claressa’s brother suspected as Bashir assailant

UPDATE: Showtime has named the suspected attacker to be Artis Mack, Claressa Shields’ brother!

Undisputed female middleweight champion Claressa Shields stated on social media yesterday that Ivana Habazin’s trainer James Ali Bashir being sucker-punched from behind is “inexcusable” and that the assailant is not a part of her team.

Flint Police Chief Timothy Johnson confirmed to ABC12 News that the person who allegedly punched Bashir is in jail and police are seeking a warrant for charges. He didn’t name the suspect.

Bashir, who formerly worked with Enanuel Steward, reportedly got into a heated shouting match with Claressa’s sister prior to the incident. He underwent surgery for facial fractures and is recovering.

Kyoguchi: I need to take a rest

By Joe Koizumi

In Japan, we make it a rule to have a winner and world champion accept an interview by press people on the next day of the world title bout.  WBA 108-pound champ Hiroto Kyoguchi was interviewed by our press on Wednesday, saying, “I need to take a rest since I suffered considerable damage after my hard fight with Hisada.”

It was obvious that Kyoguchi was the victor, but it was also true that Tetsuya Hisada showed a much better performance than expected.  The two-division champ Kyoguchi, now 14-0, 9 KOs, scored his second defense of the WBA belt and will participate in his third defense next year, not on New Year’s Eve as he did in 2017 and 2018.

Higgins: Parker withdrawal caused by spider bite

<em>By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing</em>

Former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker’s withdrawal from his October 26 showdown against former heavyweight challenger Derek Chisora at the 02 Arena in London is likely because of a spider bite!
“The theory is that it was a spider bite,” Parker’s promoter David Higgins told Stuff on Wednesday. “Boxing is a bizarre world but I know for a fact that Joseph is not well. He has been ordered to rest for three weeks so he can’t make October 26 unfortunately.

In the main fight this weekend, former world champion Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) looks to regain one of his former belts on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Golovkin takes on Sergiy Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KOs) for the vacant IBF middleweight world title.

Oddsmakers have Golovkin as about a 5:1 favorite to beat Derevyanchenko, who has the unique distinction of getting both Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez stripped of the IBF belt for not making a mandatory defense against him.

The 37-year-old Golovkin looked good in a media workout in New York City for the DAZN-streamed fight.

Deontay Wilder: “That first fight was a test for me to show me where my skill level was in the heavyweight division. He was the bogeyman in the heavyweight division for a reason. To this day, they still don’t fight him for a reason.”

Luis Ortiz: “There was no reason for me not winning the first fight, it just is what it is. We knew that one of us was going to get knocked out. I have that same sentiment for the rematch. This fight is not going 12 rounds.”

Spence edges Porter to unify WBC/IBF welter titles

By Rocky Morales at ringside

IBF welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. (26-0, 21 KOs) defeated WBC titlist “Showtime” Shawn Porter (30-3-1, 17 KOs) by twelve round split decision firefight in a unification clash on Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Photo: Stephanie Trapp/TGB Promotions

It was a back and forth battle through the first ten rounds with both landing punishing shots and as often to the body as to the head. Many rounds were so close they were difficult to score with Porter pressing the action and Spence seeming to throw more precise punches. A few of Spence’s punched strayed low and he was warned but not penalized.

Finally, in round eleven, the difference-maker was a counter left cross Spence perfectly landed that caused Porter to touch a glove to the canvas. Porter was visibly shaken but quickly rgained his feet and was not in danger of being stopped. It did seem to take all the wind out of Porter’s sails, however, and he didn’t show the same gusto following the knockdown. Continue reading “Spence edges Porter to unify WBC/IBF welter titles”

After a tactical few opening rounds, Benavidez started to take control by the fifth round with his relentless stalking and power punching. Dirrell tried his best to return fire but Benavidez gleefully walked through Dirrell’s punches.

In the sixth round, a punch from Benavidez opened up a bad cut in the right eyelid of Dirrell. Blood would drip for the remainder of the fight and with Dirrell likely behind on the scorecards, he had no choice but to fight onward. Continue reading “David Benavidez regains WBC super middle title”
