Pavlik back on the map

By David Hudson

Kelly Pavlik is excited to get back into the ring as the co-main event underneath the Manny Pacquiao-Antonio Margarito bout to be held on November 13, 2010, in Dallas, Texas.   Pavlik squares off against rugged Brian Vera, an alumnus of The Contender.   “He’s a tough kid,” Pavlik said of his opponent.  “He comes to fight and we know he’s not backing down.  … But, I’ve got to be impressive, because I’m on the road back.”  

Last April, Pavlik lost for only the second time in his career, dropping a unanimous decision to Sergio Martinez.  He lost his middleweight titles in the process.  Pavlik wants to regain the middleweight championship that he held for several years or a world title at 168.  This bout with Vera will be held at the catch weight of 164 lb.

Martinez, Williams pre weigh-in

On Friday, reigning WBC middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez and three-time world champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams went to the scales for the Official WBC 30-day Weigh-In. Martinez weighing in at 176, from his camp in Oxnard, CA and from Wash., DC, Williams weighed 162 pounds. The contract weight for the Saturday, November 20 bout at Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall is 157-pounds.

Sergio Martinez: “Dropping weight has never been an issue for me. It hasn’t been hard. It’s more difficult to get in the ring and battle against Paul Williams or Kelly Pavlik. Cutting weight… that’s easy. My weight loss won’t slow me down. On the contrary, I gain speed. The speed will bring more of the element of surprise. With more surprise brings more potential and ability. I’ll be stronger than my last fight against Williams and Kelly Pavlik.”

Paul Williams: “I don’t see Sergio’s weight making a difference,” said The Punisher. “He’s been doing this his entire career and he has been prevailing and performing. If he weighed in at 176 then he must have started the camp weighing 200lbs. Ultimately what matters, is that he comes in at 157 at the official weigh in. I had lunch 2 hours before I weighed-in to be sure I would be within weight guidelines (chuckling).”

Rib injury KOs Kiko

Casey to face Hyland for vacant EBU belt

Brian Peters Promotions

A rib injury has ruled Kiko Martinez out of his European title showdown with Willie “Big Bang” Casey on the Hunky Dorys Fight Night at the University Arena in Limerick on Saturday, November 6th. However Martinez’s loss is Paul Hyland’s gain with the Dubliner now stepping in to meet Casey for the vacant European title in what will be the first ever all-Irish clash for a European title.

Casey became famous overnight by surprisingly winning the Prizefighter super bantamweight tournament in May as a late substitute. Hyland was already the number one challenger for the European title (previously held by Irishman Bernard Dunne until his shocking defeat to Martinez in 2007) and with Martinez having decided to vacate the title until he is fit to resume his career it leaves Casey and Hyland to battle it out in Limerick.

Malinga retains SA lightweight title

By Ron Jackson

Patrick Malinga retained his South African lightweight title for the third time when he stopped Vusumzi Tyatyeka at 58 seconds into the eighth round at Uitenhage Indoor Centre, near Port Elizabeth, on Sunday. After a slow start Malinga, 33, landed a solid right to the head that stunned Tyatyeka, 23, in round eight and as referee Steven Simon picked up the count, the challengers corner threw in the towel to save their battered fighter. The champion, whose record improved to 27 wins in 35 bouts, including 24 stoppages, had his hands full to keep Tyatyeka 6-2; 5 at bay during the first half of the bout. However, experience and conditioning saw him take control and complete an impressive victory.
