mansour_maineventsPhoto: Main Events

Finally after 16 years as a pro, with significant stretches both in and out of the ring, undefeated heavyweight Amir Mansour, 19-0, 14 KOS, is ready for his coming out party. The touted power puncher gets his big chance to make some noise in the heavyweight division Saturday night when he meets Kelvin Price, 14-1, 6 KOs, in the 10-round main event at Resorts International Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. The fight will be nationally televised by NBC Sports Network on their highly-rated Fight Night live boxing series. This edition of the program is titled the “Road to Redemption.”

With his crushing power and trail of knockout victories, the Delaware-based Mansour has lately been the talk of local boxing fans in his home state, as well as in the Philadelphia and Atlantic City areas. However, few outside his immediate home turf know much about him. (more…)

Lee Purdy hoping to rebound from loss to Devon Alexander

Lee Purdy and has vowed to show he has become a different fighter since losing to Devon Alexander when he challenges Italian Leonard Bundu for the European Welterweight title the ExCeL London on Saturday night. Purdy described Saturday’s fight as a ‘must win’ and says that if he does take Bunndu’s belt he wants to put himself in a position where champions will have no choice but to fight him.

“Every fighter says it but I really am in the best shape of my life,” he said. “If there was an opponent that I could choose stylistically, then Bundo would be it. It’s going to be a cracking fight for me and the fans and I’m just really looking forward to fighting now, putting on a big show and finishing off the year with a bang.

“Obviously in my last fight against Devon Alexander I struggled with the weight a little bit but since then I’ve changed things and I’m a different fighter. You will see a different Lee Purdy on Saturday. I hope that I have taken enough from that fight to get me to the next level and prove a lot of doubters wrong. (more…)

Kiyota, Muranaka win OPBF, Japanese belts

By Joe Koizumi
Photos: Boxing Beat

Having been defeated by Robert Stieglitz in a quest for the WBO 168-pound belt in Germany last July, former OPBF super-middle ruler Yuzo Kiyota (24-4-1, 22 KOs), 168, regained the vacant regional belt that he had vacated as he took the initiative over compatriot Shintaro Matsumoto (10-4, 8 KOs), 168, opened a nasty laceration over the left eyebrow and halted him at 0:37 of the fourth round on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. The muscular Japanese, in round two, hurt Matsumoto with a vicious left hook and had the upper hand over the victim whom Kiyota had previously halted via TKO after the seventh. The ex-champ had him bloodied from a gash produced by a legal punch with a couple of examinations by the ring physician, who advised the ref that Matsumoto was unfit to go on.

In a supporting ten, WBA#8 Suguru Muranaka (19-2-1, 5 KOs), 112, wrested the Japanese national flyweight belt when he was awarded a hairline split verdict (95-94, 96-95, 94-95) over WBO#5/WBC#8/IBF#8 defending titlist Takuya Kogawa (22-3, 13 KOs), 112, over ten close and competitive rounds. Kogawa tried to outspeed and outbox the aggressive challenger, who caught the champ with a well-timed right to floor him midway in the third session. Since then, it became a really see-saw affair with each winning a point almost in every other round. Kogawa’s visit to the deck cost his belt in the fourth defense and his high world ratings.

WBA calls for Vetyeka-Walters mandatory fight

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBA World Championships Committee has decided to call for a period to negotiate the mandatory fight at featherweight between newly crowned “super” world champion Simpiwe Vetyeka and “regular” world champion Nicholas Walters. Both parties have been notified that they have 120 days to stage a Vetyeka-Walters fight. The deadline is April 5, 2014.

Former two-time world champion featherweight Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14 KOs) of Hawaiian Gardens, California by way of Guadalajara, Mexico is back in the gym as he is gearing up for his return to the ring. Fightnews.com caught up with Mares at his training headquarters the Elite MMA Academy in Santa Fe Springs, California. “It’s feels good to be back in the gym I have been back for weeks now and staying active,” Mares told us.

The 28-year-old Mares, is coming off the first defeat of his career by way of first round knockout at the hands of veteran Jhonny Gonzalez last August at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California. A clean left hook to the chin floored Mares as he got up staggered, Gonzalez followed up with a flurry of punches as he finished up with a straight right that sent Mares to the canvas once again forcing the referee to stop the fight as Gonzalez pulled the upset.

“What can I tell you about it? I just got caught in the beginning of the round. That’s it,” Mares said. (more…)

Broner-Maidana Fighter Media Workout Quotes

Photo Credit: Esther Lin/SHOWTIME

Adrien Broner, Undefeated WBA Welterweight and Three-Division World Champion:
[On how he prepares for a fighter that is so aggressive] ” He [Maidana] has never fought me. He’s never seen anybody in the ring like me, so he doesn’t know what he’s going to encounter.”

[On doing anything different in training to maintain his punching power at 147 pounds] “I’m okay. I’ve been eating a lot of ice cream.”

[On Marcos Maidana being a knockout victim] “I don’t have to explain what is already understood. He makes a lot of mistakes.

[On flying 65 family members to Colorado for Thanksgiving] “I just wanted to have a good time for Thanksgiving and see my family, but it was right back to work after that.

“I have to stay focused. I am not going to allow distraction. I’m not going to lie. This is the biggest fight of my career to date. He is going to try to hurt me, so I am ready and focused.”

Marcos Maidana, Former WBA Junior Welterweight Champion:
“The plan is that when I fight Broner, I am going to hit him everywhere and be busier. I’m prepared to throw many punches in the fight and pressure him. I’ve also trained to cut off the ring.

“It’s very important to attack the body, the arms and later the head.

“I am not sure that he [Broner] is the best I’ve faced, but he is definitely different.” (more…)

Former WBA interim middleweight beltholder Martin Murray (25-1-1, 11 KOs) returns against against former sparring partner Sergey Khomitsky (28-9-2, 11 KOs) at the ExCeL London on Saturday night, but WBA champ Gennady Golovkin is on his mind.

“I’d definitely be up for a fight with Golovkin,” says Murray, who according to the Golovkin camp has previously turned down a shot at Golovkin. “I want that fight but when it comes round I want to be a big as it can be to generate the most money. If the money is right the fights are there. Golovkin is definitely someone I’m looking at as a future opponent. I think I can beat anyone on my day, including Golovkin, I truly believe that. He is bound to say he can’t be beaten because of the way he dealt with Matthew Macklin and there’s a lot of hype around him and rightly so.

Hall: Big crowd will spur me on to world title

Stuart Hall has revealed how big a part the crowd will play in helping him to lift the vacant IBF world bantamweight crown. Hall bids to become the UK’s next world champion after Carl Froch, Scott Quiqq and Ricky Burns, and only the second man from the North East ever to win boxing’s top prize, when he takes on Vusi Malinga at Leeds’ First Direct Arena on December 21. The Darlington fighter knows he is in deep against the South African visitor. With just four defeats in 26 outings, Malinga enters the contest as the far more experienced man. And, with two failed world title attempts already behind him, the Gauteng man will be determined to get it right this time.

Hall’s story reads like a fairy-tale. After a hedonistic spell in Ibiza, the 33-year-old returned to his native North East and dedicated himself to boxing. Now with just 18 fights under his belt, including a spell as British champion, ‘Stuey’ gets the chance to make history after a career-best win in May against Sergio Perales for the IBF Inter-continental belt.

IRS says Pacquiao owes $18 million in U.S. taxes

By TMZSports.com

Manny Pacquiao has 18 MILLION new tax problems … in addition to his $50 million tax fight in the Philippines … and this time, it’s Uncle Sam that’s trying to force Manny to pay up. TMZ Sports has obtained official documents which show the IRS claims Manny owes federal income taxes from 2006 to 2010 totaling $18,313,668.79.

Here’s the yearly breakdown:

2006 — $1,160,324.30
2007 — $2,035,992.50
2008 — $2,862,437.11
2009 — $8,022,915.87
2010 — $4,231,999.01

Interesting note — Manny had 3 big fights in 2008, including a match against Oscar De La Hoya in which MP reportedly banked $15-$30 million in guaranteed cash. In 2009, Manny famously fought Ricky Hatton and earned a $12 million purse. Manny’s U.S. tax problems come on the heels of a nasty tax war in his home country, The Philippines … where the govt. claims he evaded paying $50 million in taxes in 2008 and 2009 stemming from fights that took place in the United States. Philippines officials have frozen the bank accounts Manny has in the country … and even placed a lien on one of his most expensive properties, located in Manila.

Malignaggi issues a reminder

By Graham Houston

It’s easy to forget what a good boxer Paulie Malignaggi can be when he’s really focused and ready to fight. Paulie was practically run out of the ring by Ricky Hatton and Amir Khan — although very game — but on his good nights he is always going to be difficult to beat. Malignaggi had one of his good nights on Saturday when he outboxed and almost outclassed Zab Judah in the main event on Showtime.

I edged towards Judah in this welterweight Battle of Brooklyn, and Judah was the betting favourite, but apart from suffering that somewhat dubious knockdown in the second round it was Malignaggi all the way. (more…)
