Algieri says Roach’s mental game won’t work

WBO jr welterweight champion Chris Algieri says he’s not affected by the stream of comments coming from Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach in advance of his November 22 PPV showdown with Pacman in Macao, China. “He is wasting his time because I don’t even read those reports, so that’s the first thing,” stated Algieri. “Secondly, I hear about them from other people around me and it doesn’t make a difference to me. It seems kind of odd for him to be coming out so much and saying so many different things and every day it’s a new thing. But like I said, I don’t read them and I don’t care about them and it doesn’t make a difference come fight night. I would imagine it is some kind of strategy, a kind of mental game or whatnot. Freddie’s been around a long time and maybe this has worked for him in the past but it’s not going to work on me.”

Algieri will be making the long trek from Las Vegas to Macao today.

Briggs barred from Klitschko press training

The last U.S. Heavyweight champion of the world Shannon Briggs was met by a large security entourage today when he was trying to enter the public training session of unified world champion Wladimir Klitschko at a Volkswagon auto dealership in Hamburg, Germany. The Briggs camp believes that Klitschko hired special security anticipating Briggs arrival. Briggs’ presence was still felt, however, as he took center stage and was mobbed by German media and fans outside. The atmosphere almost felt as if Briggs was fighting Klitschko instead of Kubrat Pulev on Saturday. (Video: Team Briggs)

Abel Sanchez says Mohammedi has the talent to be world champion

By Michel Beuville/Netboxe.com

Last Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, French IBF #1 rated light heavyweight and mandatory title challenger Nadjib Mohammedi once again gave a good account of himself, easily beating the overmatched American Demetrius Walker in less than three minutes. For this bout, “Iron ‘Djib” had to compete without his regular trainer Samuel Florimond who had obligations in France. Therefore it was the famed Abel Sanchez (trainer of Gennady Golovkin) who worked the corner after Mohammedi had trained in Sanchez’s Gym in Big Bear.

We asked Sanchez to share his thoughts on Nadjib Mohammedi. “I had the pleasure of coaching a very talented, respectful future world champion,” said Sanchez. “Nadjib has a lot of good qualities and with some perfecting and polishing of his technical skills, along with power which is something he does not use to its fullest right now, Nadjib will be champion in 2015. I look forward to teaching him how to become France’s next world champion.”

If Algieri beats Pacquiao, is he in line to fight Mayweather?

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum: How can I talk for Mayweather? As far as the Pacquiao fight is concerned with Mayweather, as much as a lot of people surrounding it would want it to happen, myself included and Manny included, Floyd is reluctant to fight Manny Pacquiao, period. If people don’t see that by now, they are never going to see it. In as far as if Chris Algieri wins the fight against Manny Pacquiao, then there is a provision in the contract for a rematch. If he beats Pacquiao then beats Manny in a rematch and Floyd wants to fight him, that’s not my business – that’s up to Joe DeGuardia and it’s up to the Mayweather camp.

Ruslan Chagaev to return to action early next year

WBA “regular” heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev has started training camp for the first defense of his second title reign which is supposed to take place in early 2015 in Hamburg. After his mandatory challenger Luis Ortiz disqualified himself with a positive doping test team Chagaev is currently looking for an opponent. “Ruslan is ready to go but now that Ortiz is out we will have to see who is available”, says promoter Timur Dugazaev. “And of course, we need to coordinate the exact date and challenger with the WBA. We will announce the fight once the contracts are signed.”

This week Chagaev and his team will take a close look at the action that will take place in their adapted home town Hamburg. The regular WBA champion will be ringside when “Super Champion” Wladimir Klitschko defends his titles against Kubrat Pulev. “I still want my rematch with Wladimir and I know that I will get it”, says Chagaev. “I didn’t have any time to prepare for our first fight in summer 2009 because they brought me in as last minute replacement. I didn’t want to pass on the chance but I am not happy with the circumstances. I know that it will be a different fight when I have the chance to get ready. To take on Wladimir I have to be in the best possible physical shape and I also need the right mindset.” (more…)

Chris Algieri about to head to Macao, “I have the tools and the talent to win this fight”

By Karl Freitag

Undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri hosted an international media conference call on Tuesday from his Venetian Las Vegas-based training camp. Tomorrow, right after his final U.S. sparring session, Algieri will break camp and head off to Macao, China where he will challenge reigning WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao.

Chris Algieri: We’ve done all the hard work here and we’re ready to travel across the world and eventually shock the world.

I’m tall for the weight class. I’m not built to go in there and stand in front of a man and trade bombs. Why would I do that? I’ve got length, I’ve got reach, I’ve got speed. I’ve got footwork and defense, but that’s not going to be what the difference is in this fight. It’s not a tall guy versus a short guy, it’s Chris Algieri versus Manny Pacquiao. It’s what I bring to the table versus what he brings to the table…I have the tools and the talent to win this fight. I’ve just got to go out there and perform.

I’m not one of those champions who was brought up and fed the perfect guys to look great. I’ve had to fight every single style you can think of coming up. I had to fight my way to get here. I wasn’t fed anyone at any point in my career. I’ve fought every style you can think of, lefty, righty, tall, short, power puncher, fast guys, slow guys, counter guys, so for me it’s the norm preparing for a different style.

[On responding to Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach’s trash talk] I’m not going to change just to promote a fight…I’m not fighting Freddie. That’s not the man I have to box with, so I’m not going to go back and forth firing darts at each other. You don’t see Pacquiao doing that. That’s Freddie’s prerogative, that’s what he likes to do. That’s not me. Even if it helps the promotion of the fight, that’s not my style.

Amir Mansour speaks after spectacular KO win over Fred Kassi

By James Slater

Once-beaten southpaw heavyweight Amir Mansour rebounded from his exciting points loss to Steve Cunningham on Saturday night, with an eye-catching seventh-round KO over Fred Kassi. Now 21-1 with 16 KOs, the shaven headed southpaw known as “Hardcore” aims to build on the brutal stoppage and fight the top names of the division as soon as possible.

Congratulations on the KO win over Fred Kassi. It was a brutal KO and people are talking about it as the possible KO Of The Year. Was that right hook the best one you’ve ever landed?

“Er, no, not at all. It just landed, but the punch wasn’t my best ever right hook at all. I’ve KO’d guys like that before. [Hector] Ferreyro (who Mansour KO’d in a round back in 2011) literally went out on a stretcher and he didn’t wake up until he was at the hospital. Kassi was a big strong guy and I hit him with a solid shot, but I did other things better than ever in the fight.” (more…)

Afolabi training for Hernandez clash in Kiev

Former multiple world title challenger Ola “Kryptonite” Afolabi left Southern California last week in final preparations for his International Boxing Federation (IBF) cruiserweight world title clash with champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez set for Saturday, December 6th in Oldenburg, Germany. “I had been training for the last few weeks in Los Angeles but for the best sparring I came to Kiev, Ukraine to work with Oleksandr Usyk in his camp” said the London born Afolabi who has compiled a record of 21-3-4 (10KO’s) during his career that began with no amateur bouts.

With a record of 5-0 with five knockouts, Usyk is a very highly regarded cruiserweight prospect, the southpaw having won the 2012 Olympic Gold Medal at heavyweight for Ukraine. “I’ve watched Usyk fight before and he is clearly very strong and talented. He is a tall southpaw who will help me prepare for Hernandez, if I can do well with him I will beat Hernandez.” (more…)

Macklin: My career is on the line in Dublin

The 32 year old meets the Argentine in a WBC World title eliminator in his first fight in Ireland since December 2009, and he says the stakes couldn’t be higher for his return to the capital. “It’s the fight I need at this stage and if I cannot beat him, then that’s it really,” said Macklin. “I know I will beat him and it will set me up for a big 2015 where a world title shot will definitely come about. He knows that beating me is a massive scalp and it throws him into the limelight and he’ll probably get a world title shot. (more…)
