News: Roach On Mayweather; Manuel Quezada; Bayan Jargal
HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (May 9, 2009) -- "So much for truth in advertising. We all know who the No. 1 pound for pound fighter is and his name is Manny Pacquiao. They can call Mayweather-Marquez "No. 1" but it smells like No. 2,” said three-time BWAA Trainer of the Year World-Famous Freddie Roach. “The fight stinks. Two counter-punchers waiting for the other one to make the first move is boring and proves nothing. If Mayweather wanted to prove he was the best all he had to do was wait one day to see who won Pacquiao-Hatton before signing to fight Marquez. You might as well rename him Fraud Mayweather, Jr..“

QUEZADA EYEING CHALLENGES WITH BRIAN MINTO AND TRAVIS WALKER
Riding a 16-fight winning streak, WBC CABOFE Heavyweight champion, Manuel "El Toro" Quezada, is eyeing challenges with heavyweight contenders Brian Minto (33-2, 21 KO's) and Travis Walker (30-2-1, 24 KO's).
Quezada, who's ranked # 15 by the WBC, feels a win against Minto or Walker will get him closer to title contention as he stated, "A fight with a durable guy like Brian Minto is exactly what I want right now. It's my understanding that he's mentioned my name as someone he would like to fight too. As far as Travis Walker, he's a highly ranked contender that doesn't duck anyone. I'm sure he'll be willing to step in the ring with me, but we'll see. He might be gun shy after getting knocked out by Chris Arreola. We have a date open on July 16th at the Tachi Palace Casino. If any one of these fight gets finalized, I'll be happy to give Minto or Walker a shot at my title."
Quezada has made it clear that he is willing to get in the ring with any of the top ranked heavyweights and will travel to their own backyard to make it happen.

This is a great time for boxing and the fans are always looking for the next rising star and we truly believe Bayan is that guy.”
Jargal’s two previous appearances in 2009 included a first round knockout of Walberto Gaxiola on January 23rd in Las Vegas and a third round stoppage of Reggie Nash on March 14th at the Winchester Sportsplex.

The 31 year old Carden, fighting out of St. Joseph , Missouri , brings a record of 8-7-0 (7KO’s) into the battle with Jargal.
