By Gabriel F. Cordero

Former two-division world champion Jhonny Gonzalez (65-10, 54 KOs) will reappear on April 7th in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo against Dominican Marlyn Cabrera (24-1, 11 KOs). “I’m ready to continue in the search for a world title fight and I know I can win this fight by knockout in a forceful way. I have been patient. Now Berchelt is the champion and he mentions everyone except me. Maybe I’m very complicated for him and I hope to be the official challenger soon so there are no excuses.”

The Ixtapa fight will be the beginning of 2018 for Jhony González who has won his last 7 fights since the defeat by majority decision in September 2015 against Puerto Rican Jonathan Oquendo at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

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. I can see Joshua getting to him in the middle rounds and stopping him in the second half of the fight.”

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?)”

WBC #7 Kuga blasts out Kosaka to keep Japanese 122lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

WBC#7 Japanese super-bantam titlist Yusaku Kuga (16-2-1, 11 KOs), 121.75, impressively kept his national belt when he proved too strong and powerful for mandatory challenger Ryo Kosaka (16-4-1, 8 KOs), 121.75, blasting him out at 2:13 of the opening session on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan.

Having dethroned his former conqueror Yasutaka Ishimoto via second round stoppage in their rematch in February of the previous year, Kuga thus scored his second defense with ease. The muscular champ connected with a vicious overhand right and quickly dropped the still nervous challenger onto the canvas. Kosaka barely resumed fighting on, but returned to the deck with another solid right soon. Though he raised himself with rubbery legs, the third man wisely declared a halt to save him from further punishiment. Continue reading “WBC #7 Kuga blasts out Kosaka to keep Japanese 122lb belt”

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is supremely confident of victory over the WBA, IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua on Saturday at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff Wales. ”I am a champion. I am here to take his belts back, so if he sees that as a stepping stone or a change in his life then it’s up to him, whatever he thinks,” Parker told Sky Sports. ”But I am here to take his belts back home, for myself, for my team, for my family and country. That’s it.

”You can say it’s arrogance, but it is not realistic. Of course, he can be beaten, he’s not a god, he’s a human being – and I am going to show that on Saturday night. And if I do and he tries to recover, I am not going to give him the chance to recover. I am going to chase him down and get him out of there.”

In the co-feature, welterweight Brian Ceballo (1-0) of New York made his pro debut with a first round stoppage of Luis Alberto Longoria, (1-1) of Sonora, Mexico.

Truax aims to teach DeGale another lesson

IBF super middleweight world champion Caleb “Golden” Truax shocked the boxing world when he defeated then-champion James DeGale last December in London to claim his world title. Now, Truax prepares for an equally difficult task as he is set to defend the title in a rematch against DeGale Saturday, April 7 live on SHOWTIME from Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

“I think DeGale overlooked me last time and I think he’s doing it again this time,” said Truax. “I see him already talking about fighting David Benavidez and George Groves. Did he not learn his lesson the first time? I think his injury talk is an excuse as well. He said his arm and shoulder felt fine heading into and immediately after the fight last December. I don’t believe any of that injury talk. It means nothing to me.” Continue reading “Truax aims to teach DeGale another lesson”
