Porter: Size doesn’t matter

On Wednesday, RTL went to the Sportschule Hennef to speak to unbeaten WBA heavyweight champion (in recess) Ruslan “The White Tyson” Chagaev in advance of Saturday’s super fight against IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

Ruslan, what does it mean for you to fight against triple champion Wladimir Klitschko so soon after the cancellation of the Valuev fight?

“The cancellation of the fight against Nikolai Valuev for me was a real shock. I was really broken up in Helsinki, it was a difficult time for me. But thank God, Wladimir Klitschko suddenly wanted to fight against me. That’s real luck for me. A chance like this comes only once in a lifetime.” (more…)

Donaire fights for WBA crown!

By Nick Giongco

Top Rank big boss Bob Arum told Fightnews on Wednesday that Filipino champion Nonito Donaire will relinquish his IBF flyweight crown to vie for the soon-to-be-vacated WBA super-fly title on Aug. 15 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. In the main supporting fight, another Filipino puncher, featherweight Abe Concepcion battles Steven Luevano for the world 126-lb crown. This fight was originally scheduled May 2 underneath the Manny Pacquiao-Ricky Hatton scuffle but an injury suffered by Luevano prompted Arum to call it off.
—–
In another development, Arum revealed that Brian Viloria will defend his IBF light-fly diadem sometime in September in Cebu City in the Philippines where the Hall of Fame promoter said Rodel Mayol might get his immediate rematch against Ivan Calderon of Puerto Rico for the WBO light-fly jewels following the disappointing result of their bout over the weekend at Madison Square Garden.

Diaconu vows to talk in ring!

By Dave Spencer/ Fightnews Canada

It’s early Saturday morning and WBC light-heavyweight champion Adrian Diaconu is virtually alone in the basement gymnasium that is a second home to him, just the champion and his trainer Pierre Bouchard about to put the finishing touches what both parties believe was a successful training camp. Sparring is all done with, all the rounds put in the bank the undefeated fighter tapes up his hands to the rhythmic tones of Romanian music pulsating in the background. After years of being in the background, being behind charismatic countryman Lucian Bute and before that former lightweight champion Leonard Dorin, winning his championship in Romania, away from the media spotlight, Diaconu is about to bust out in huge way Friday night as he meets fellow Montrealer Jean Pascal at the Bell Centre in Montreal (10pm on Vs., Canada PPV).

Roy Jones coming to Australia!

By Craig Watt

Former four weight world champion Roy Jones Jnr confirmed via telecast in Sydney on Wednesday that he would come to Australia in November this year and take on former WBA light-heavyweight and WBC interim super-middleweight champion Danny Green in probably what is Australia’s biggest boxing match up since Jack Johnson came to the country and fought Tommy Burns in 1908 in Sydney for the world heavyweight title. He stated, “I have never fought outside the USA as a professional and this fight gives me a chance to show the boxing fans in Australia Roy Jones in action. I was ringside when Danny fought Anthony Mundine in their first fight in Sydney and I know how popular he is as a fighter and a role model. He is a proud fighter and he is showing his class in coming to America to fight on the undercard of my next fight against Jeff Lacy and I am going to return the favour and come and fight him in his home country – probably in November. This is the date we are working to, but we both have to win our fights first against solid opponents. If Danny wins the IBO cruiserweight title in August then I can challenge for my world title in five different weights which is an excellent challenge for me.” (more…)

Red Square boxing returns!

By Alexey Sukachev

For the second time in Russian history, Red Square, an epitome of national statehood and one of the most known Muscovite symbols, will be a host for the pro boxing tournament. Last September Yuri Fedorov Sports Lab brought a former heavyweight champion of the world in, Oleg Maskaev, and added a couple of prospects to shape up a highly-hyped boxing card, dedicated to the Day of the City. While those fights weren’t of any notable significance, the overall response was benevolent to the initiative. This Sunday night newly created “Ural Boxing Promotions” (founded in 2008) will follow Fedorov in his footsteps to arrange a compact but thrilling event with two minor title fights and two non-title bouts in the undercard.

WBA #14 Russian heavyweight Alexander Ustinov (15-0, 13 KOs), who is currently competing under K2 East promotion, is set to fight experienced British veteran Michael Sprott (31-13, 16 KOs) on the huge June 20 card at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds and the EBA belt owned by Ustinov will not be at stake. Towering (6’8’’) heavyweight Ustinov, 32, who was once an MMA star, has stopped his five last opponents, two of them in 2009, including previously unbeaten Ukrainian Maxim Pedyura. Sprott, 34, is coming off a lackluster performance versus Lamon Brewster this March.

German Titov update!

By Alexey Sukachev

Russian featherweight Vyacheslav Gusev (16-2, 3 KOs), previously ranked #9 by the WBO, dropped a unanimous decision to unbeaten WBC #3 Mexican Juan Carlos Burgos (22-0, 15 KOs) this past Friday at Doubletree hotel in Ontario, California. Scores were 97-93 and 98-92 (twice) for the 21-year old fighter from Tijuana, who retained his WBC CABOFE title in the process. The result, however, was controversial at least, insists Gusev promoter German Titov. “Vyacheslav was badly cut in the very beginning of the first round. Yet he was able to dominate Burgos throughout the majority of rounds despite that obvious obstacle. It took him only a couple of rounds to adjust to Burgos’ style of boxing and then Slava started to press Burgos around the ring rocking him on several occasions. He is too light-hitting to knock that big Mexican guy out but there was no doubt who was the winner that night. The scores are all right, but judges picked a wrong guy as a victor. After the bout Mexicans and Americans visited Gusev in the dressing room and greeted him as the real triumpher,” explained Titov to this reporter. (more…)

Valero to fight in Vegas?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The current WBC lightweight world champion Edwin Valero is seeking to be approved for a boxing license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in order to get the OK to fight in the boxing mecca. The results of an MRI will be reviewed by Nevada medical authorities and sources close to the boxer indicate that there are good possibilities that these results be favorable to Valero. The feared power-puncher was banned in the US by the New York boxing commission from 2004-2008 after an irregular brain scan, but continued his career outside the US to become a world champion. He has already been approved to fight in the state of Texas. There is talk of a Vegas showdown with former champion Joel Casamayor in September if all goes as hoped.
