Lewis urges Horn not to fight Crawford

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Hall of Fame trainer Johnny Lewis told Grantlee Kieza of the Courier Mail and he has urged WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn NOT to fight WBO mandatory challenger Terrence Crawford because of the obvious problems he is having making the 147 pound limit. “Jeff Horn looked so drained at the weigh-in for the Corcoran fight, it was like he’d had a bout with Count Dracula the night before,” said Lewis, a 2017 IBHOF inductee. “He looked emaciated.

Perennial contender, 36-year-old veteran Valentine Hosokawa (22-6-3, 9 KOs), 139.5, wrested the Japanese 140-pound belt as he dethroned his close friend and defending champ Koichi Aso (22-8-1, 15 KOs), 139.75, by a hairline verdict (95-94 twice, 96-95) over ten hard-fought rounds on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. Valentine previously failed three times to acquire a belt, losing to Shinya Iwabuchi, Man-Wook Kim and Hiroki Okada. But he displayed a great determination to win the national belt in scoring good points in the second half, while the shaven-skulled Aso’s vision seemingly deteriorated with bad bleeding from the third round onward. Valentine’s long efforts finally paid off. Continue reading “Valentine wins Japanese 140lb belt; Obara keeps WBO ASPAC 147lb title”

Seldin: This fight motivates me even more

“I’ll be back, I promise you that,” says jr welterweight Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin, who lost for the first time on Saturday night against Yves Ulysse in Laval, Quebec, Canada. “I hate to lose and I’ll be a much better fighter next time. I’m a fighter who likes to entertain the fans and bang. I’m sorry I couldn’t catch him. I promise I am going right back into the gym as soon as they let me and I will fix some things so this never happens again. This fight motivates me even more and I promise I will make 2018 the year of the “Hebrew Hammer.

“I was not expecting him to move so much, I figured in front of his home town fans he would stand and fight more. I tried my best to make a fight of it and refused to let the knockdowns keep me down. The knockdowns didn’t really affect me, I just got up and went to work. I like the combat, it was the chasing that got to me. I just want to brawl.”

Billy Joe Saunders: “I know you’re booing me because I whooped your fighter’s ass…I wouldn’t have come over here if I thought I’d get beat…I’m a different animal now. I wanted to put it on Lemieux…Canelo fight me NOW!

David Lemieux: “I wasn’t at my best. As of the second round I couldn’t use my left hand the way I wanted to. He was on the run and I had difficulty throwing my shots. I guess his strategy to win is to run away from fighters instead of fighting. If that’s the way you want to win then, hey, congratulations.”

Molina: I did what I had to to get the victory

Two weeks away from his 35th birthday, super lightweight John “The Gladiator” Molina Jr. (30-7, 24 KOs) showed he’s still one of the most exciting boxers today. Molina came off the canvas in round two to deliver a sensational fourth round stoppage of Ivan Redkach (20-3-1, 16 KOs) Friday night in Lancaster, California. “It was a great fight,” said Molina. “I was a little rusty, but it’s not an excuse, Redkach was a really tough guy. We got the job done and never gave up. A fight is a fight, it’s not over until it’s over.”

“You always dig deep with your family watching,” added Molina. “You never want to lose in front of your family. I’m always going to fight until the very end. I had a tough opponent in front of me but I did what I had to to get the victory.”

New IBF 130lb champ Ogawa makes hero’s return

By Joe Koizumi

Newly crowned IBF 130-pound champion Kenichi Ogawa made a return in triumph after his invaluable victory over Tevin Farmer with the vacant IBF belt on the line in Las Vegas last Saturday. Ogawa, formerly a Nihon Kenpo contestant, acquired the world belt in the US since Tadashi Miura gained the vacant WBA 154-pound title by defeating Rocky Fratto in 1981. We know it is hard to win the world throne in America as the technical level thereof is higher there unless in the super-flyweight or less categories.

Photo: Boxing Beat

Ogawa (23-1, 17 KOs), 29, is still improving technically in the international style boxing. He reportedly said to his manager/promoter Akihiko Honda, “I wish to fight again in Las Vegas.” Should he square off against Francisco Vargas, Miguel Roman or Orlando Salido (who changed his mind after he once said a farewell to the ring after only five days), it will be a good matchup without doubt.

Trainer: Povetkin would rather die than quit

By Przemek Garczarczyk

17 years ago, Ivan “The Terrible” Kirpa was the mandatory WBC welterweight championship contender. According to his then-promoter Don King, Kirpa was a “fighter with an unbelievable hunger to win.” However, with his bout for the world championship looming, Kirpa’s boxing career abruptly ended. Not in the ring, mind you, but in a brutal street fight in his Russian hometown.

Kirpa now stands as a trainer in the corner of former heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (33-1, 23 KO). The hunger to win is still there, and according to Kirpa the same could be said for his “Russian Knight” Povetkin. Fightnews.com spoke with Kirpa in Yekaterinburg before today’s clash with Christian Hammer for the WBO International/WBA Intercontinental belts.

Saunders-Lemieux reaching fever pitch

WBO world middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (25-0, 12 KOs) and former IBF champion David Lemieux (38-3, 33 KOs) hosted their final press conference Thursday for their WBO World Middleweight Championship fight that will take place on HBO this upcoming Saturday at Place Bell in Laval, Québec.

Photo: Vincent Ethier/Eye of the Tiger Management

Billy Joe Saunders: “David has to come from round one and try to knock me out. Because when he’s eating fresh air, he’s very injury prone. But what I don’t want from David’s team are excuses. David is a good fighter, he’s mixed it with Golovkin at a very elite level. But some boxers are not quite enough to be at that elite level. And David, you’re not quite good enough. Am I good enough? We’ll soon see. In my own mind, I know I can deal with it, and then with Golovkin or Canelo, we’ll see where I really am.”

David Lemieux: “The time to talk is over and now it’s time to let the fists do the talk and show you who the real world champion is. A lot of things are going to happen on Saturday, but my promise to you is that by the time I will leave Place Bell, I will have the WBO belt on me. I will be world champion. I’m ready to give you guys a great evening of boxing. Saunders made a lot of promises, about his chin, about his purse, and that’s something I haven’t forgotten. Let’s see for how long you will be able to back up those words and put them together again this Saturday.”

Super featherweight Carlos Morales (17-2-3, 6 KOs) won the NABA title against Dardan Zenunaj (14-4, 11 KOs) by six round technical decision on Thursday night at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. Morales got off to a good start before the bout was stopped due to a cut to Morales caused by a headbutt. The stop was unlucky for Zenunaj, who was coming on strong and seemingly taking over the fight. Morales, however, gets the W for being up 49-46 on all three cards.

Welterweight Raul Curiel (2-0, 1 KO) scored a fourth round TKO over Israel Villela (6-8, 2 KOs).

Povetkin: I don’t care about his weight

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“I can be smaller but still be the better, faster and smarter fighter,” said former WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin who is giving away 35 pounds against Christian Hammer Friday night in Ekaterinburg, Russia. “I don’t care about his weight…I know that I’m in the optimal condition. I have no idea, what kind of tactics he will employ fighting with this weight. I know what I want to do. Win,” said Povetkin in an exclusive Fightnews.com interview.

Povetkin (32-1, 23 KO) meets Hammer (22-4, 12 KO) for both the WBA Intercontinental and WBO International belts.

The “Russian Knight” dismissed the notion that new heavyweight era is only for giants and called his VADA doping disqualification “unjust” and “unfair.” Povetkin and his promotional company World of Boxing also made it known very well who their main target is for 2018: undefeated WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KO).
