Collazo planning August or September return

After a hard fought defeat against Amir Khan on “THE MOMENT: Mayweather vs. Maidana” undercard on May 3, former welterweight world champion Luis Collazo returned to his home borough of Brooklyn to rest and spend time with his family before returning to the ring at the end of the summer. Collazo suffered a minor injury to his left hand during his fight against Khan. According to his doctor, the tendons in his left hand will take between four and six weeks to return back to normal.

“The hardest thing about the fight was that I lost,” said Collazo. “I was there physically, but that’s about it. Mentally I wasn’t there. Right now I’m taking some time off to rest, allow my body to heal and get back to work.” (more…)

Saunders: I’d beat Quillin 100%

WBO #1 rated middleweight Billy Joe Saunders (19-0, 10 KOs) says he’ll cut through unbeaten Emanuele Blandamura (22-0, 5 KOs) for the European title and then he wants WBO king Peter Quillin. Saunders, the British, Commonwealth and WBO International beltholder, faces Italian Blandamura on July 26 at Manchester’s Phones 4 U Arena as chief support to the heavyweight showdown between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury.

“Of course, Blandamura is the only thing on my mind at the moment, but I know that I will have to put on a class performance to show that I’m ready to fight Quillin for the world title next,” said Saunders. “That’s the golden carrot for me, I’ve got to shine on the night and show I’m the best out there. Quillin is there for me to beat and I reckon he’s the most beatable of the champions. The way he fights will suit my style and I’d beat him 100% and I’d fight him anywhere, in his backyard or even a stable! (more…)

2014 IBF convention preview

By Boxing Bob Newman

The IBF will kick off the 2014 sanctioning body convention season with it’s 31st annual convention in Atlantic City at the Resorts Hotel and Casino from May 18-22. This year’s convention boasts the theme of “Back where it all began,” as the IBF formed in 1983 during the USBA convention in Atlantic City. Starting in late 1983 and continuing over the next year, the IBF staged inaugural title fights around the world in all of boxing’s weight divisions, even creating the Super Middleweight division along the way.

The highlight of this year’s convention will surely be the gathering of many of those inaugural champs from lightweight up to heavyweight so that they maybe recognized as the first IBF world champions in their respective weight classes. Champs such as Charlie “Choo Choo” Brown, Donald Curry, Mark Medal, Murray Sutherland, Michael Spinks, Marvin Camel and Larry Holmes will be on hand to receive their recognition at the awards banquet on Wednesday, May 21st.
