Chavez Sr. convinces Canelo to end wager

By Hesiquio Balderas

During a heated press tour between Canelo Alvarez and Julio César Chávez Jr., Canelo and Chavez Jr. agreed to make a large wager on the outcome of the fight. Junior’s father, Mexican ring legend Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. was against the idea of a bet and thought that it was unethical to proceed with the whole thing. After an appearance on a sports TV show in Los Angeles, Canelo and Chavez Sr. agreed to put an end to the controversy.

“I am a man of my word but just for you, because I respect you, we’ll put an end to this, only because of you,” Canelo told Chavez Sr.

It’s not new to boxing fans that Canelo admires JC Sr. He has called Chavez his idol on numerous occasions. Canelo and Chavez Sr. shook hands and touched fists after agreeing to end the wager.

Alvarez KOs Bute in fifth round

By Dave Spencer

In a battle of two top ranked Quebec boxers, Elieder Alvarez scored a big 5th round knockout over former world champion Lucian Bute (32-4-1) on Friday night at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City.

Bute seemed to be getting the better of things, with good movement jab a defense but Alvarez turned things around on a dime with two crushing right hands to put Bute down and out. The first right stood the former champ straight up and the second crashing down to the canvas, where try as he might, he just couldn’t get to his feet. Alvarez stays undefeated and moves to 22-0 with the WBC light-heavyweight title eliminator win and is in line to face-off in another all Quebec match-up versus world champion Adonis Stevenson.

After two very close opening rounds Bute seemed to be gaining the upper hand in rounds three and four, able to frustrate the Colombian born Alzarez and not letting him get off, that all quickly changed though as Bute who now has just two wins in his last seven was stopped for the second time in his career. Now 36, retirement seems to be on the horizon for the former champion.

The win goes down as the second versus Bute for Montreal trainer Marc Ramsey who was also at helm when former world champion Jean Pascal scored a points victory in 2014.

Canelo-Junior war of words continues; both willing to wager purse

By Hesiquio Balderas

It’s pretty clear that Canelo and Chavez don’t like each other, but making a bet for both purses gave the already heated event and extra ingredient that should translate to the box office and to the PPV numbers. The arguments between Saul and Julio continue and that’s why there are less than 1,000 tickets left.

Photo: Tony Bullard – Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions

Canelo and Chavez still had a few new things to say about each other.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: “If he wants to do something with the bet we will do it, but let’s do it legally, let’s sign a paper. If we are going to do something, we’ll get it done, not just words. He (Canelo) is the first to say that a man backs his words with his balls, but I don’t see him doing that because he said he was going to fight Golovkin after the Amir Khan fight and he didn’t back up his own words, so I don’t believe in his words.”

Canelo Alvarez: “This fight goes beyond words. This fight is for honor. I made him the bet because he is always talking bad about me, that he is going to knock me out. He makes memes of me and he doesn’t say it in front of me, but I bet him the amount of money that he is going to earn. If I win this fight I will donate a percentage to the immigrant foundation to give my support to our people.” (more…)

Hot super welterweight prospect Justin “The Chosen One” DeLoach (17-1, 9 KOs) scored a second round KO over Chris “Young King” Pearson (14-2, 10 KOs) on Friday night at the Pechanga Casino & Resort in Temecula, California. In round two DeLoach knocked down Pearson twice, the second time Pearson stayed down for the count. The time was 2:30.

Unbeaten lightweight prospect Saul Rodriguez (21-0-1, 15 KOs) scored a split decision over Oscar Bravo (22-7, 10 KOs). Bravo controlled the action throughout the fight. In round five Rodriguez was knocked down by Bravo. The judges preferred Rodriguez’ higher workrate compared to Bravo’s power punches. Scores were 95-94, 97-92 for Rodriguez and 95-94 for Bravo.

In a clash of unbeaten cruiserweights, Andrew Tabiti (14-0, 12 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over Quantis Graves (11-1-2, 4 KOs). Tabiti pressed the action in the fight from the start, hurting Graves every round. Graves, who was in survival mode from the start, took heavy shots in round five from Tabiti. In round six Tabiti knocked Graves to the canvas. Graves didn’t come out for round seven. The result was erroneously announced in the ring as a fifth round TKO.

Undercard Results from Quebec

By Dave Spencer

Undercard action from the Videotron Centre in Quebec City Friday night:

Heavyweight Adam Braidwood (7-1) traveled from Edmonton and scored the biggest win in his career, knocking down Eric Martel Baholeli (11-7-1) twice in the 5th round for the TKO victory. Wisdom was that the longer this one went, the more it favored the more experienced Bahoeli, and indeed it was the local Quebec fighter in control over the first three rounds. Braidwood though would start to dominate physically in the 4th, in fact almost pushing Bahoeli completely out of the ring when the two locked heads together. Braidwood took full advantage of the upper hand and never relented for the duration, almost stopping his opponent as the 4th. The beginning of the 5th was delayed as the ringside physician examined a cut under the left eye of Braidwood, but the extra time wasn’t nearly enough for Bahoeli who went down rather easily from an equally exhausted Braidwood. Bahoeli managed to climb to his feet but was visibly wobbly and glassy-eyed and the bout was wisely called. (more…)

Chavez Jr: “This fight is personal, it’s a war between two Mexicans and may the best man win. I am focused it’s a great opportunity for my career, I am ready to show I can beat anybody.” (more…)

Canadian card ushers in new era

By Dave Spencer

It’s not often your phone will ever ring 48 hours before any Ontario, Canada fight card. Promoters are invariably way too busy putting out fires and jumping through hoops to assure that all bouts are presented as scheduled and rearranging deck chairs in hopes that the whole entirety doesn’t sink.

But Saturday’s nine-fight card at The Hershey Centre in Mississauga hopes to issue in a new era for the sport as long-standing commissioner Ken Hayashi has now retired and Ray Dempster has assumed the position.

“The fights were all finalized weeks ago and I’m finally doing what a promoter is supposed to do,” explained Don McDonald of his early morning phone call, “I’m promoting.” (more…)

Braekhus, Svensson weigh in

Cecilia Braekhus 147 vs Klara Svensson 145

Promoter: First Lady Promotion
Venue: The Spectrum, Oslo, Norway

Braekhus refused to participate in the public weigh-in for her unified WBC/WBO/WBA/IBF/IBO welterweight championship bout against Svensson. While Svensson weighed in at 65.8 kg (145 lbs.) in front of dozens of photographers, multiple TV teams and 100 fans in Oslo, Norway, local hero Braekhus – who is promoting the event with her “First Lady Promotion” – asked to touch the scale in her private dressing room.

Obviously, Cecilia thought that she couldn’t make the weight after being over the limit on a wrongly calibrated test scale. When she finally weighed in on the official scale in her dressing room she was perfectly fine at 66.6 kg (147 lbs.). (more…)

Exclusive Canelo Alvarez Interview

By Byron Spurlock

Talk about the warm reception you have here in Houston for your upcoming fight?

I’m very happy and I appreciate all the love and support from my fans. I know the fight is not here in Texas but I love the showing from the fans. I’m very proud of that.

Photo: Robert Hughes

Chavez appears to be the underdog, the fans were cheering for you. Do you feel that you are the heavy favorite for this fight?

I don’t put a lot of focus or attention into that, regarding who is the favorite and who is not. I try to go out there and just fight my fight regardless of who the opponent is. I have prepared myself for this fight. Chavez is the bigger fighter, this is a dangerous fight, and one punch can change everything.

Let’s talk about GGG; what are you waiting for?

The offer has been made and it’s on the table. They have it. It’s just a matter of them accepting the fight. But let’s not focus on that fight right now, let’s enjoy this fight.

Do you have feel in a fight like this that you are the one who has everything to lose?

Of course, every fight is dangerous and you have to treat everyone the same, and when fighters don’t, that is when bad things happen. If you lose you then you lose and you lost everything. You lost everything that you were fighting for and then you don’t have the big fights ahead. I don’t put that in my head and I just concentrate on the present fight and prepare to win and that is what’s going to happen on May 6.

Mojica gets the split decision in Dallas!

The annual “A Night to Fight” fundraiser benefiting the Ring of Hope Boxing Club, a place for the youth of East Dallas to build physical and spiritual discipline, took place once again at the Frontier Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas. This unique venue has an assortment of planes hanging from the rafters, some of which are old historic military fighter planes. The only fighting tonight though was in the ring, where flyweights Josue Morales (4-5-3) from Houston and Dallas’ Oscar Mojica (10-2, 1 KOs) squared off for the ABO flyweight title.

The taller Mojica used his size early to walk down the smaller yet crafty southpaw Morales. Mojica went a little low and was given his first warning by Referee Robert Chapa. In the 2nd round, Mojica went low again and was immediately deducted a point to the dismay of Mojica. Morales spent much of the first couple of rounds trying to counter Mojica and by the third he started to have some success. He used his speed to land his power straight left hand on multiple occasions. (more…)
