Nava, Juarez Twinbill Final Press Conference

This Saturday at the Mexico City Arena, the two best Mexican female fighters, Jackie Nava and Mariana Juarez, headline in rematches against foreign opposition in advance of a possible super fight between the two. Nava (33-4-3, 14 KOs) faces Alys Sanchez, and WBC bantam champ Juarez (49-9-4, 18 KOs) meets Terumi Nuki.
Nava Barby Presser01

Jackie Nava: ”I know Alys prepared twice as hard for this fight and I did, too. She knocked me down in the first fight, but she also felt my power and surely this will guarantee a show for all the fans. I know I’ve been out of the ring for a long time and that could work against me, but I prepared the best I could for this fight.”

Barby Juarez: “Sometimes the Japanese fighters have impressive stamina and especially Nuki, who brought everything in the first fight and I’m sure she’ll do it again. Long ago I learned that should not underestimate any opponent and I’m not thinking ahead to a fight with Jackie.” Continue reading “Nava, Juarez Twinbill Final Press Conference”

Laila Ali: I have a bittersweet relationship with boxing

By Jeff Zimmerman

Laila Ali did the unthinkable. She took up a sport that didn’t give much respect to women, if any, and did so under the brightest of lights as the daughter of The Greatest, Muhammad Ali.

Ali fought from 1999-2007 and would have fought longer, but as she says, there wasn’t enough competition.

“I have a bittersweet relationship with boxing because I was in a weight class that just didn’t have much talent to choose from because women naturally are not usually 168lbs,” Ali said. “When I was 168lbs, I was a strong, lean 168 and a lot of these girls that were at 168 just hadn’t trained down to the size they needed to be, so they were not physically strong enough for me. Boxing is all about weight classes for a reason. And the girls that would have been, I felt, competitive fights, I could never make fight me.” Continue reading “Laila Ali: I have a bittersweet relationship with boxing”

Miller-Adamek Presser Highlights

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Long Adamek-Miller face-off.

———-

“For Tomasz, (this is) a chance to completely turn the division on his head with a win. Tomasz Adamek beats Jarrell Miller and we can start talking about Dillian Whyte, Joshua and Wilder.

One win can change all that,” said Matchroom Boxing chairman Eddie Hearn talking to Fightnews.com at the DAZN USA press conference announcing the October 6 DAZN USA “World’s Collide” event from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago. When talking about some boxing writers’ criticism in regards to the Miller-Adamek bout, Hearn said, “This is the kind of thing that will drive Tomasz Adamek, inspire him.”

Sparring partner: Fury is something special

Unbeaten heavyweight prospect Kem Ljungquist talks about sparring with former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. “It was a great experience to share the ring with Tyson Fury,” said Ljungquist (4-0, 2 KOs). “He really impressed me. He is very good. He’s light on his legs with good movement and really hard to hit. A very awkward fighter. There is no doubt he is something special. He is even sparring without a head guard because he’s almost never hit, but I think I gave a good account of myself, and I made it back to Denmark in one piece!

Frampton: I’ll lay Jackson out cold

“I haven’t knocked anybody out in a long time, but Luke Jackson is a guy who is going to get knocked out.”

WBO interim featherweight champion Carl Frampton says it will turn nasty the moment he looks across the ring and sees Luke Jackson in the opposite corner. He gets the chance to silence Jackson (16-0) when he defends his crown against the Australian challenger at Belfast’s Windsor Park on Saturday August 18.

Jackson has angered Frampton suggesting he’s over the hill as a boxer and claimed he looks overweight in training. That likely means an exciting night for 20,000 fans and viewers watching on Showtime’s Facebook and YouTube pages, but bad news for Jackson. Continue reading “Frampton: I’ll lay Jackson out cold”
