LOS ANGELES (July 18, 2013) – Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions officially announced today that Undisputed Super Lightweight World Champion Danny “Swift” Garcia and WBC Interim Super Lightweight World Champion Lucas “The Machine” Matthysse will meet in a decisive bout which will anchor the undercard of the biggest boxing event in years, “THE ONE: Mayweather vs. Canelo” on Saturday, Sept. 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, live on SHOWTIME PPV®.
If Mayweather vs. Canelo is “THE ONE” fight for boxing fans worldwide, then the highly anticipated Garcia vs. Matthysse is “THE ONE-A.” Garcia, the undefeated WBC, WBA Super and The Ring Magazine World Champion, has emerged as the division’s dominant force over the last 18 months by dismantling world champions Amir Kahn, Zab Judah and Mexican legend Erik Morales twice.

It has been a while since Manny Pacquiao said anything of substance, or really anything at all. For some time now, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been doing all the talking when it comes to Manny Pacquiao, recently stating:
“Pacquiao’s a has-been, his career is over; (but Juan) Manuel Marquez is a legend (and I commend him).”
Finally, Manny Pacquiao had something to say in response to Floyd’s rant, in defense of his boxing career and abilities in the ring: Continue reading →
There is some unfinished business between Marco Huck (36-2-1, 25 KOs) and Firat Arslan (33-6-2, 21 KOs). On November 3 of last year the two fighters squared off at the Gerry Weber Stadion in Halle/Westphalia, Germany, for the WBO Cruiserweight World Championship. Back then Huck won a close decision on points. However, Arslan saw himself ahead after the full twelve rounds.
“In our mind, this battle is a question of honor,” said Chris Meyer, Managing Director of Sauerland Event during Thursday’s press conference. “Both boxers saw themselves as the winner. But there is an easy way to end this debate, a rematch. That way Huck as well as Arslan now have the opportunity to prove who deserves to be called world champion.” Continue reading →

Unbeaten American heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) sees British heavyweight Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) as mainly a marketing fighter that is best as selling his fights rather than in performing in them. Scott notes that Chisora was able to get a title shot against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko with only 17 fights under his belt last year. Scott and Chisora will be fighting this Saturday night at the Wembley Arena in London, UK.
Scott said to BoxNation “He’s [Chisora] a salesman. It’s all calculated. He knows what he’s doing. It’s worked for him. I don’t know anybody that had 16 fights and was fighting for the Championship of the World. When you’re in with me you’re dealing with a lot of different attributes. We know about what he’s coming with. He’s coming right at me. I’m going to be setting traps and I’m going to be tagging him…if Dereck wants to f*** all his money up and act stupid, it’s on him. F*** his antics!” Continue reading →
LOS ANGELES (July 17, 2013) — Former World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion and Son of the Legend JULIO CÉSAR CHÁVEZ, Jr. returns to the ring in his 2013 debut when he faces No. 1 contender BRYAN “The Warrior” VERA. The Chávez vs. Vera rumble, scheduled for 12 rounds at the super middleweight division, will take place Saturday, September 7, at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. This marks the first time Chávez has fought in Los Angeles since June 4, 2011, when he won the world title over undefeated interim world champion Sebastian Zbik.
Promoted by Top Rank®, in association with Zanfer Promotions, Banner Promotions and Tecate, tickets to Chávez vs. Vera will go on sale This Friday! Continue reading →
Former WBA light welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31 KO’s) turns 30-years-old today, and he wants to know what WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) will be doing with his title now that he’s beaten former WBA champion Paulie Malignaggi by a 12 round split decision to take his title. Continue reading →
Is it just me, or is Adrien Broner swiftly descending into the career abyss. If you have not yet seen the following video, please take a look and witness Adrien Broner using the restroom and then “wiping” and flushing money down the toilet.
Of course flushing money down the toilet makes more sense than donating it or using it to help others who actually need it to survive, at least to Broner it does. It is pretty pathetic how he is trying to not only mimic Mayweather Jr. but to do crazier and more absurd things in order to grab attention and portray himself as a very rich cocky champion.
After his lackluster performance against Paulie, the last thing Broner should be doing is trying to create hype and become the character that he will be unable to sustain. Continue reading →
Malik Scott says he’ll demolish Dereck Chisora this Saturday night in more devastating style than fellow countryman Tony Thompson who destroyed David Price.
Chisora clashes with his American rival at Wembley Arena with the Vacant WBO International Heavyweight title on the line, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
Price was smashed in five rounds by Thompson in the rematch earlier this month and Scott is confident he can bash the controversial Finchley puncher.
“I saw the fight between Thompson and Price and I knew that Thompson would do it again second time round, it was a great accomplishment, he’s a good, strong heavyweight,” Said Scott. Continue reading →
US based Ghanaian boxer, Samuel Kotey Neequaye gets the opportunity to win his first title in the America when he faces 40 year old Dorin Spivey on August with the (North America Boxing Association) Lightweight belt at stake for the winner.
World title chasing Neequaye has impressed on all three of his fights in the US since arriving a little over a year ago. Now he gets the chance to win a title and edge closer to realizing the world championship glory when they square off at the Bob Carpenter Center, Newark, Delaware, USA on August 2. But in the vastly experienced Spivey (42-6, 30 KOs), the Ghanaian faces the sternest of tests but it’s one that the 30 year old Neequaye has sworn to ride no matter how tough it comes.
“It’s all about survival of the fittest and knowing where I’m coming from, nothing is going to stop me. I know he has been around for a long time but I’m also determined to write my own history so let’s go rumble in the ring. I’m ready,” Neequaye told the Ghana based newspaper BOXING IN GHANA from his US base.
Unbeaten reigning EBU and WBC Silver light-middleweight champion Sergey Rabchenko stopped experienced and tough Georgian Gari Abadjian in the third round of a scheduled ten in Minsk last night (July 16).
With Ricky Hatton in his corner, Sergey looked very sharp and did not give any chances to his opponent, who had previously gone the distance with the like of Valery Brazhnik, Ruben Varon, Mehdi Bouadla and Sofian Cherfioui.
Following Ruben Varon’s surprise inside the distance defeat to Rafael Chiruta at the weekend, Sergey now finds himself without an official challenger again.
The EBU should nominate a new official opponent shortly, but after the decision of Emmanuelle Della Rosa to pull out of the position and the “accident” of Varon, it seems that there are not much people willing to challenge the Belarusian puncher. Continue reading →

First off I will start in congratulating Kell Brook on decent performance against a very tough, strong and always game Carson Jones. Even though Kell was fighting at a catch weight of 152 lbs due to injuries preventing him from having a successful training camp he still managed to look good at a weight he is not ready move up to just yet!
As fan of blood and guts warriors i would like to mention a thank you to Carson Jones for taking the 2nd fight and even agreeing to fight at a higher weight this time to suit the bookies favourite fighter to win, if Jones had not taken this fight due to the added stipulations it would have raised numerous questions amongst the fans about Kell’s desire to be a true champion and his promotional teams confidence regarding Kell’s talent. I can only hope Jones got paid well for the fight and gets some good fights going forward to further his career. Continue reading →
