Oscar: Expect Cotto On His Toes

By Robert Hough

On Nov. 21, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez faces a Freddie Roach-trained fighter in Miguel Cotto – and Alvarez’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya knows more than a little about what Roach brings to a fighter’s team.

De La Hoya, who faced Floyd Mayweather with Roach in his corner and faced Manny Pacquiao with Roach in the Filipino’s corner, said Tuesday that he expects Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) to be fit, nimble and aggressive, though he wonders how long the 35-year-old Puerto Rican fighter can keep it up.

“Freddie’s a great trainer and I know he’ll have Cotto in fantastic shape and on his toes, but how long can he stay on his toes?,” De La Hoya, chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, said during a teleconference with Alvarez and his team. That’s the million-dollar question.”

Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs), ever a man with quick hands and concise quotes, said being 10 years younger than Cotto is irrelevant.

“We’re getting ready for a tough opponent in a 50-50 fight and I believe he will be strong and aggressive for 12 rounds,” Alvarez said. “That’s what we have prepared for and we’re putting the finishing touches on, but we are ready.”

The fight will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas; it will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. The fight will also be shown in a number of movie theaters.

The final press conference took place today for Saturday’s clash between unbeaten heavyweights Tom Schwarz (14-0, 9 KOs) and KO artist Ilja Mezencev (10-0, 10 KOs) in a clash for the inaugural WBO Youth title at the Anhalt Arena in Dessau, Germany.

Ilja Mezencev: When the offer came to box against Tom, I could only accept. I’m the main fighter, the focus is on me. The fact that I’m prepared very well relaxes me. I’m sure, I can win. I’m ready!

Tom Schwarz: Ilja has spewed a lot of big talk in the lead, I’m curious to see if he can now follow up. Maybe he’s a good boxer, when he takes the first hard hit, all his best tactics are nothing. Ilya says he’s well trained, but nobody trains as hard as me! (more…)

Tony Zale’s and Carmen Basilio’s championship belts stolen from IBHOF

By Boxing Bob Newman

In a brazen late night theft, six championship belts were stolen from the International Boxing Hall of Fame last Thursday, November 5th, in Canastota, NY. The belts were won by ring legends Tony Zale and Carmen Basilio. An alarm at the IBHOF went off alerting Canastota Police, who were on the scene in less than two minutes. Incredibly, the perpetrator was gone and so were the prized championship belts. Zales two world middleweight championships, and Basilio’s New York welterweight, two world welterweight, one world middleweight championship were represented among the six belts taken. All were housed in a combined display case that was the hall’s centerpiece. The belts had been on loan from the Zale and Basilio families for several years. (more…)

Golovkin meets Jerry Jones, talks possible Showdown with Canelo at Cowboy Stadium

By Jeff Zimmerman
Photos/Videos: Robert Hughes

Gennady Golovkin aka GGG visited the Lone Star State for the first time Sunday night as a guest of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones as his America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys played host to the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium. In only a few short years, GGG has turned into America’s favorite fighter because of his fan friendly “Mexican Style” of fighting and the “Big Drama Shows” that have captured fans from coast to coast.

Jones, who brought in Manny Pacquiao for a couple of fights that drew between 40,000 to 50,000 must envision an even bigger draw at Jerry World with GGG and Mexican Superstar Canelo Alvarez if he can get by the rejuvenated Puerto Rican WBC Middleweight Champion Miguel Cotto on November 21st. If Cotto retains his title against Canelo, then a GGG-Cotto fight is likely land in New York with the hopes of a Canelo-GGG showdown potentially made another time at AT&T Stadium. GGG is also visiting San Antonio this afternoon to evaluate options there.

Higa, 20, runs to 8-0, 8 KOs to keep WBC youth 112lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

We fortunately could watch a couple of talented prospects with their impressive stoppages on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Unbeaten 20-year-old Daigo Higa (8-0, 8 KOs), 112, amazingly kept punching from the outset until he finally caught up with Philippine champ Renren Tesorio (15-7-3, 4 KOs), 112, and halted him at 2:05 of the tenth and final session to retain his WBC Youth flyweight belt that he had wrested from previously undefeated Kongfah CP Freshmart via upset seventh round TKO in Thailand this July. His handler, ex-WBA junior fly champ Yoko Gushiken said in the ring, “You’ve watched a young Gushiken. Higa is still young and will grow up to be stronger without doubt.” Higa, rather short as a 112-pounder, looked still less skillful, but his aggressiveness coupled with his abundant stamina and incredible volume of solid punches was superb enough to attract the ringsiders, all of whom praised his way of ferocious victory. Tesorio, a taller puncher, occasionally caught Higa with looping left hooks, which the Japanese fighting machine ignored and kept on punching and stalking him from pillar to post. Finally did he land a vicious right to almost topple Tesorio with the ref Fukuchi wisely grabbing him to save him from further punishment. (more…)

Gutknecht looking to school unbeaten Zeuge

Former world title challenger Eduard Gutknecht (28-3-1, 11 KOs) is planning to take the “0” from the record of unbeaten 23-year-old Tyron Zeuge (17-0, 10 KOs) when they meet for the IBF International and WBO Intercontinental super middleweight titles on November 21 at the TUI Arena in Hannover, Germany. Gutknecht went the distance with former WBO 168 lbs titlist Robert Stieglitz before moving up to light heavyweight and winning the Euro title. Now, he’s now 3-0 since moving back down to his original weight.

“I think this fight has come too early for Zeuge,” said the 33-year-old. “I’ve seen and experienced a lot in my career, whereas he is young and relatively inexperienced. I hold every advantage. I’m back at my best weight and I’m feeling stronger than ever, plus Hannover is within striking distance of my hometown Gifhorn so I will have the home support pushing me forward. This is a fight I can’t lose, and after I beat Zeuge, I want another shot at the world title.”
