Peterson-Diaz press conference

Report & photos: Julian Burgower

The final press conference was held Thursday for the NBC-televised Premier Boxing Champions series between former world champion Lamont “Havoc” Peterson (33-3-1, 17 KOs) and 2008 Olympic Medalist Felix “Hijo de Oro” Diaz 17-0, 8 KOs) on Saturday at the Eagle Bank Arena, in Fairfax, Virginia. The co-feature will include a ten-round junior middleweight clash between undefeated power punchers Prichard “Digget” Colon (16-0, 13 KOs) and Terrel Williams (14-0, 12 KOs).

Additionally on the card is Petersons’ brother Anthony, (35-1, 23 KOs). Looking to show a prime-time audience something fight fans in the DC arena are already familiar- that he’s not the only Peterson that can fight and he’s deserving of a title shot that has eluded him for way too long. Standing in the way of Anthony is Mike Oliver (26-6-1, 8 KOs) of Hartford, CT.

Also being featured are local favorites Jimmy Lange and prospect Alantez Fox. (more…)

Golovkin motivated for Saturday

By Dave Spencer
Photos: William Hart, K2/Golden Boy

Gennady Golovkin has been a one-man wrecking crew since arriving and staking his place in the middleweight division. A perfect 33-0 record. 30 Knockouts. 20 straight stoppages. The last man to force him to the scorecards has already retired. Six years ago! Oh, one last thing, Golovkin says he is feeling ‘motivated’ for Saturday night.

Starring in an Apple watch commercial, life is certainly good right now for the 33-year-old Kazakhstan-born middleweight, but if the boxer was Tesla sports car, it looks as if he is done with ‘insane mode’ and fixated to launch ‘ludicrous mode’.

Headlining a sold out pay-per-view event at New York’s Madison Square Garden and a unification bout with IBF Champion David Lemieux, Golovkin already heralded as one of the best in the sport, seems ready to switch gears and leave all others behind him to eat his dust. “Finally, he has gotten someone who he considers as a threat,” trainer Abel Sanchez recently told assembled media at a public training session in Los Angeles. “Someone that he feels will give him a fight for as long as it lasts.” (more…)

Golovkin-Lemieux: Bet on Gravity

By Dave Spencer

When asked on a recent conference call about the challenge that lay ahead in Gennady Golovkin, David Lemieux responded in part by stating, “Everybody understands the gravity of this fight.”

Gravity indeed.

Although referring to the monumental task of taking on undefeated Gennady Golovkin in front of a sold-out Madison Square Garden, Lemieux could have just as easily been referring to the laws of Sir Isaac Newton himself. No doubt the majority of fans and oddsmakers are banking on gravitational pull of one of the two boxers down towards the canvas and being inert for at least ten seconds.

Most oddmakers are establishing GGG as about a 16:1 favorite. Lemieux is roughly a 7:1 underdog, odds almost identical to Golovkin winning by decision. The undefeated fighter riding a streak of 20 stoppages is going off as a 1:5 pick to win by stoppage but a trip to the scorecards for WBA and WBC (interim) champ will get you 6:1. (more…)

Former world champion Tomas “Gusano” Rojas (48-14-1, 30 KOs) will dispute the WBC International featherweight title against Filipino Edward Mansito (13-2-2, 7 KOs) at the Auditorio Benito Juarez in Veracruz this Saturday. “I know that I’m facing a strong opponent,” said Rojas. “I like to give people what they want to see.

In the co-featured fight, world ranked Marco Antonio Peribán (22-3-1, 14 KOs) will face Ghanaian Joshua Okine (28-4-1, 17 KOs) for a WBC regional super middleweight belt. “This is one step closer to the title,” said Periban.

Boxing in the salty underground

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Boxing underground? Done. In a salt mine? Done. But only in one place in the world. For the last seven years, Polish promoter Tomasz Babiloński has been presenting fights in a beautifully restored, nearly 700-year-old salt mine in Wieliczka, Poland. It will happen again, near the famous city of Krakow, Poland. “This is something else. Nothing can compare to being here, to fight in this unique environment,” said Babiloński, who is promoting Saturday’s one-of-a-kind event in cooperation with Sferis KnockOut Promotions.

Babiloński, who has a knack for finding unusual places for boxing events and for finding world class talent (such as current IBF cruiserweight IBF champ Krzysztof Głowacki, who sensationally knocked out Marco Huck recently) has a right to call his events “the only one in the world.”

Saturday’s event, televised nationally in Poland by one of biggest European broadcasters, Polsat TV, will showcase fighters who have a last chance to be recognized. (more…)

USA Olympian Jose Ramirez looks to break into top 15 ranking on national TV December 5 in Fresno

USA Olympian, NABF Champion and undefeated Jose Ramirez (15-0, 12 KOs) will have the biggest fight of his career when he gets an opportunity to fight for a WBC Continental Americas championship at one of the top arenas in the world on Saturday, December 5. A win will give Ramirez a Top-15 world rating and put him into a position to be a top contender. Champions including Evander Holyfield and Roy Jones and many other superstars have held the WBC Continental Americas belt.

The Save Mart Center is one of the most prestigious arenas in America according to ‘Venues Today,’ a leading trade publication that listed Save Mart Arena among its ‘Top Stops’ for venues in the 10,000 to 15,000 categories. The venue came in as the No 1 ranked collegiate venue and No. 4 in the United States and No. 12 in the world based on concert grosses. Save Mart Center was one of seven SMG-managed arenas to rank in the Top 10 in this size category.

“I feel honored and thankful for the opportunity given to me and I will do my best to give my greatest performance on December 5,” said Ramirez. (more…)

K2 Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions today hosted the final press conference for the Golovkin vs. Lemieux undercard prior to Saturday’s stellar sold-out night of boxing set for the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden and produced and distributed live on HBO Pay-Per-View on October 17. Roberto Duran, Panamanian former world champion in four weight classes, and one of the greatest boxers of all time, also stopped by the undercard press conference. He reflected briefly on his storied career and named Madison Square Garden as the home of his most memorable fights. Duran also spoke about his excitement for the fantastic bouts schedule for the Golovkin vs. Lemieux undercard on Saturday, October 17.

Below is what the fighters and their promoters had to say:

Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez: “I’m ready for this fight and will give my best. I don’t like to speak much, but I will say I had a great camp and feel strong and in good condition to win Saturday’s fight. I’m thankful and feel blessed that I am able to fight, and I am ready to give the fans a good fight.”

Brian Viloria: “I live, breathe and eat boxing. I try to keep in shape so I can fight as much as possible. I have prepared myself very well for this fight. I am doing a disservice if I don’t give it my best on Saturday. Fighting a guy like Gonzalez, the number one pound-four-pound fighter in the sport, is a big challenge. He is as big as it gets for me, in my career. He is the biggest challenge I’ve faced to date. I’m going to show you the best Brian Viloria you’ve ever seen. I’m prepared to take the title from Roman.” (more…)

Quick Quotes from the Peterson-Diaz presser

By Julian Burgower

Former world champion Lamont Peterson and undefeated junior welterweight contender and 2008 Olympic gold medalist Felix Diaz faced off Thursday during the final press conference in Washington DC’s Hamilton Live in advance of Saturday afternoon’s Premier Boxing Champions NBC telecast.

Lamont Peterson: How’s everybody doing? I would like to thank God for another healthy, productive training camp. I would like to thank my team, Team Headbangers. I’m looking forward to this fight. I’m always looking forward to fighting. I wish I could fight every month, I swear I do, but I understand that it’s a business. I’m happy I’m fighting this weekend. It’s been another tremendous training camp. I’m looking for a tough fight. Felix prepared well and I’m ready. I wish we could fight tonight [laughs]…but I guess I can wait…I guess. I promise to put on a show.

Felix Diaz: I’ve trained hard for this fight like any other fight and I encourage all the people to come out and support this fight. Thank you very much. (more…)

WBA 115lb champ Kono to collide with Kameda in Chicago tomorrow

Report and Photos by Joe Koizumi

Why do a couple of Japanese boxers square off with a world championship on the line in Chicago? WBA super-flyweight champ Kohei Kono (30-8-1, 13 KOs), from Japan, will defend his belt against three-time titlist and compatriot Koki Kameda (33-1, 18 KOs) beneath a competitive confrontation of Andrzej Fonfara and Nathan Cleverly under Warriors Promotions at the UIC Pavilion in the Windy City tomorrow (Friday). The answer is simple and complex: (1) Team Kameda has had some legal problems with the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC), and Kameda brothers haven’t been eligible to fight in Japan, (2) The WBA designated Koki Kameda the mandatory challenger to the super-fly titleholder Kohei Kono, (3) Koki entered under the wing of Al Haymon’s stable along with his younger brothers Tomoki and Daiki, and (4) Kono, therefore, finally accepted defending his belt against Kameda in a show under the Premier Boxing Champions in the US now that it is practically impossible for Watanabe Promotions to stage it in Japan. That’s all. The legal matters between the JBC and Team Kameda may require a great deal of explanations beyond this reporter’s capacity. (more…)

Long odds. An opponent hovering near the top of everybody’s pound-for-pound lists. David Lemieux’s trainer Marc Ramsay has been there before. And in the case of Jean Pascal versus Chad Dawson; come out on top.

The Montreal trainer has faced formidable challenges before and more than held his own but this might be the biggest yet. How does he ready his David to slay Goliath giving him the right amount of ammunition for his slingshot and building that slingshot along with a strategy that might topple a giant come Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

Ramsay who has been with Lemieux since 2011 and the Joachim Alcine fight and also trains the top trio of light-heavyweights in Pascal, Beterbiev and Alvarez. Fightnews talked to him just before he departed from Montreal for New York City about Lemieux’s preparation and his views on the fight. (more…)

One of Australia’s most high profile athletes Danny “The Green Machine” Green (34-5, 28 KOs) held a press conference at the Crown Sports Bar in Melbourne Australia today to announce he will next face Konni Konrad (22-2-1, 11 KOs) from Germany at Hisense Arena in Melbourne on Wednesday, December 2. The date will mark exactly 6 years when Green sensationally stopped Roy Jones Jr in the first round in Sydney in 2009. Green is coming off a comfortable decision victory over Roberto Bolonti in August, while Konrad is coming off a loss in his world title fight last month with fellow German Juergen Braehmer (47-2, 32 KOs) who retained his WBA light heavyweight title.

Green says it was good to blow off cobwebs in his last fight again Bolonti.

“I wasn’t as sharp as I could have been and I know that and that’s why I want to step up and put two fights together in quick succession for what I anticipate down the track to be a big fight for me,” Green said. (more…)

Super middleweights Patrick Nielsen (27-1, 13 KOs) and Rudy Markussen (39-3, 26 KOs) will meet in all-Danish grudge match on December 12 at the Brondy Hallen in Copenhagen. The showdown comes following months of antagonism between the bitter rivals, which reached boiling point earlier this year when Markussen crashed one of Nielsen’s pre-fight press conferences. Having both overcome tune-up clashes in Frederikshavn last month, the stage is now set for Denmark’s biggest domestic fight in decades. “Not since the 1980s, when Joergen Hansen and Hans-Henrik Palm twice contested the European title, have we seen such a big fight between two Danish boxers,” said promoter Nisse Sauerland.

Selby outpoints Montiel; Martinez upsets Alexander

IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby (22-1, 8 KOs) cruised to an uneventful twelve round unanimous decision over 36-year-old former three-division titleholder Fernando Montiel (54-5-2, 39 KOs) on Wednesday night at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Selby outworked and outboxed the much smaller Montiel, who had previously won titles at flyweight, super flyweight and bantamweight. Montiel’s best moment was in round six when he cut Selby ver the right eye. Scores were 119-109, 118-110, 116-112.

In an upset, unheralded welterweight Aron Martinez (20-4-1, 4 KOs) scored a shocking ten round unanimous decision over former world champion Devon Alexander (26-4, 14 KOs). Alexander seemed to be in command early, but then let Martinez back in it. Scores were 96-94, 97-93, 97-93.

Lightweight Ivan Redkach (19-1, 14 KOs) scored a third round KO over Erick Martinez (11-4-1, 5 KOs). Redkach, rebounding from his first loss, battered Martinez to the canvas for the count at 2:59.
