Mikey Garcia’s promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank says he’s thinking about maybe putting him in with WBO super featherweight champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez (27-1-2, 16 KO’s) in what would be Mikey’s first fight at 130 lbs. It’s a good fight for Arum because it’s a fight that he can sell due to Martinez having a large Puerto Rican fan base and Mikey having a large and still growing Mexican fan base. It’s a good fight for that reason, but it’s not the best fight Arum could make as far as a competitive match-up because Martinez is barely hanging onto his WBO title as it is against the guys he’s been facing.
WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) isn’t telling anyone what he plans on doing to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) on September 14th, but if it’s anything like how Canelo beat his last opponent former WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout last April, then I think Canelo is going to have to come up with a new plan on the drawing board because the Canelo that fought that fight loses to Mayweather.
If you watched Canelo beat Trout, you’ll notice that Canelo incredibly economical with his punches in every round of the fight. Continue reading →
Dan Rafael of ESPN thinks former two division world champion Juan Manuel Lopez (33-3, 30 KO’s) is over-the-hill and not the same fighter he once was following his 4th round TKO loss to Mikey Garcia (32-0, 27 KO’s) last Saturday night at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Juanma was knocked down two times in the process of getting stopped by the 25-year-old Mikey.
Rafael said on his twitter “Juanma has been as exciting as anyone in recent years, but the wars took their toll. He’s all shot now. That is obvious. He’s a shell…amazing that at one time Lopez-Gamboa was really a hot fight, until [Bob] Arum over-marinated it.” Continue reading →
By: Lou McLaughlin -ringside – Boxing returned to West Orange, N.J. at the Richard J. Codey Arena (formerly South Mountain Arena) this past Friday night June 14 after an absence of 20 years. The bouts were brought by Greg Cohen Promotions and Gabe LaConte’s First Round Promotions. Gabe LaConte has been a force in New Jersey boxing for decades. Gabe was inducted last year into the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame for his many years work as a promoter in the Garden State. Three of the fights were telecast live by ESPN. Continue reading →
Mikey Garcia (32-0, 27 KO’s) put on a jabbing and counter-punching clinic in destroying a once good fighter Juan Manuel Lopez (33-3, 30 KO’s) by a 4th round TKO tonight at the American Airlines Center, in Dallas, Texas, USA. Mikey, 25, knocked Juanma down twice in the fight, once in the 2nd from a right hand, and a final time in the 4th with a tremendous left hook. Official time of stoppage was 1:35. Continue reading →
In a card filled with mismatches, heavyweight contender #8 WBC, Manuel Charr (24-1, 14 KO’s) stopped his over-matched opponent Oleksiy Mazikin (14-9-2, 4 KO’s) in the 3rd round earlier tonight at the Karl Eckel Halle, Hattersheim am Main, Hessen, Germany.
Charr, 28, knocked out the easy to hit 38-year-old Mazikin in the 3rd round with a series of hard body shots to get the stoppage.
In another mismatch on the card, unbeaten heavyweight contender Denis Boytsov (33-0, 26 KO’s) stayed unbeaten with a 3rd round TKO over Oleksandr Nesterenko (9-2, 4 KO’s). Boytsov was too strong, too skilled and too experienced for the novice.
It’s really time that Charr and Boytsov start thinking about stepping it up a couple levels because it just seems like they’re waiting to get title shots or big money fights to plop into their laps without them facing quality opposition to earn those fights. Continue reading →
WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) says he’s been studying Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) for a long time now and he knows what to do to hand him his first loss of his career on September 14th.
Canelo isn’t saying what his secret strategy is to beat the 36-year-old Mayweather, but it’s got to be something along the lines of how Canelo has been fighting because he’s not exactly one of the most versatile fighters because of his low center of gravity, short height, and the weight that he carries for the junior middleweight division. Continue reading →
Junior middleweight Vanes Martirosyan (33-0-1, 21 KO’s) made quick work of 2nd tier opponent Ryan Davis (24-11-3, 9 KO’s) tonight in scoring a 2nd round TKO win at the America Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Martirosyan dropped Davis twice in the 2nd round to get the stoppage. Continue reading →
Russian knockout artist Sergey Kovalev (21-0-1, 19 KO’s) obliterated Cornelius White (21-2, 16 KO’s) by a quick 3rd round TKO on Saturday night at the Sands Casino Resort, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA. Kovalev really went after White, battering him in the first two rounds with big power shots, and then knocking him to the canvas three times in the 3rd round.
Kovalev knocked White down with a left hand for the first knockdown of the 3rd. White got back up and was hit with some hard combinations from Kovalev and then knocked down a second time in the round.
White was really hurt after getting from this knockdown, but the referee allowed the action to continue. Kovalev then steamed forward and landed a brief flurry that ended with a nice left hook that knocked White down for the third and final time in the round. The referee then halted the fight.
Kovalev mentioned after the fight that he’d like to face IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins next if possible. He’s hoping Hopkins will want to fight him. Continue reading →
“If I fight Andre Ward at 168, I can go fight in his home town. Then we can have a rematch at 175 and he can come to my home town to fight. That’s what I’m proposing.”—Adonis Stevenson
Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (21-1, 18 KOs) made a huge statement when he scored an explosive first round knockout against “Bad” Chad Dawson (33-3, 17 KOs) to become the new light heavyweight king. This dazzling display of sheer strength and power catapults Stevenson into the spotlight of an already interesting 168-175 pound landscape, which includes Andre Ward, Carl Froch, and living legend Bernard Hopkins to name a few. Stevenson suddenly finds himself in a unique position where a slew of lucrative opportunities are likely to surface. I was recently afforded the opportunity to speak to Stevenson about his championship winning performance, his future in boxing, and his opinions of some of the other big names who reside in and around his weight class. Here is what the new champ had to say.
GEOFFREY CIANI: Hello boxing fans. This is Geoff Ciani from East Side Boxing, and I am joined here today by the newly crowned light heavyweight champion of the world, Adonis Stevenson. Adonis, first of all, congratulations on your outstanding victory.
ADONIS STEVENSON: Thank you very much.
Mikey Garcia made a statement in his last fight when he disarmed tough as nails pressure fighter Orlando Salido from The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City on January 19th. The same Orlando Salido that took Juan Manuel Lopez’s “0” in a battle of Mexico vs. Puerto Rico in 2011 and followed that performance up just short of 11 months later with another TKO victory. Which Juanma will show up to the ring this Saturday for his fight versus unbeaten Mikey Garcia at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas?
Bob Arum had to have a tear in his eye the night of April 16th 2011. One of his prized pupils from Puerto Rico had his boxing heart ripped out of his chest, in what was a nightmare scenario to any Puerto Rican boxing fan, by the hands of a Mexican fighter. Yeah Bob Arum made money that night and the fight set up a rematch that also filled the Top Rank coffers. Fight fans were happy with the war that added to yet another classic installment to the Puerto Rico vs. Mexico rivalry. But deep down inside Arum had to feel the pain Lopez felt in his boxing soul, only it wasn’t his soul but a hole he felt in his deep pockets considering what was at stake that night.

The 2012 Olympian will face Joel Galea over six rounds on a Danny Cheetham promotion at the Memorial Hall in Moree, New South Wales on July 13.
Despite having a population of less than 10,000, Moree has strong history of producing top class sports people, with former international cricketer Peter Taylor and two-time world triathlon champion Emma Moffatt hailing from the town. Continue reading →
Veteran Scribe Steve Kim of Maxboxing.com has reported via Twitter that the scheduled fight between the Legend of Longevity Bernard Hopkins and Karo Murat has been cancelled due to Murat having visa issues.
Not long ago Kim, who can be followed on twitter @stevemaxboxing tweeted this “It looks like the Hopkins-Murat card on July 13th is off, from what I’m told. Murat has Visa issues”. Minutes later he added this, “Btw, SHO is now going ‘dark” on July 13.”
Visa issues have been a thorn in the side of many events throughout the history of boxing. With that said you can’t help but to speculate that there may be another reason for the possible cancellation of this fight. Murat’s Visa issue if he has one could be legit. It could also be perfect timing for Bernard Hopkins to move in another direction. The fight was made quickly and for a man who has limited fights left before he hits the age of 50, there could be other factors that are dictating the fight being called off. Continue reading →
WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) came into his last fight at junior middleweight weighing 172 lbs. for his fight with WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout last April.
That’s pretty heavy for a fighter that spends a lot of time fighting welterweights instead of junior middleweights. Canelo will now be fighting a welterweight in Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) on September 14th, and one of the questions about the fight is whether Canelo will come into the fight over 170 like he was for Trout or will Canelo try to come in lower in the 160s? Continue reading →
No, Manny Pacquiao National Boxing Championships is not a title of a video game or some upcoming book or movie about Manny Pacquiao, it’s an actuality event that Manny himself plans on promoting and even hosting himself in Manila in order to scout out top grade boxing talent.
According to a recent report, the event will feature eight boxing teams from all over the country, to pit eight boxers in eight weight categories, and fight from six to eight rounds in rotation matches among winners. The winner will be awarded with a Manny Pacquiao Trophy and a cash grant of P100,000 each.
This will most certainly be a very successful boxing event or show in the Philippines, but will it gain any international attention? Continue reading →
