Undefeated No. 1 contender, son of the legend Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and chief trainer Freddie Roach pose during a press conference at the Millennium Biltmore Tuesday to announce their upcoming big fight against Ireland’s John Duddy on “Latin Fury 15″, which will be televised on Top Rank Pay-Per-View, Saturday, June 26 from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

“A trainer like Freddie Roach can take me to the next level,” said Chavez. “I know how tough he is but I will do what he says. With a great training camp I will be able to take on Duddy – who I think is a very good fighter – and win.” Roach added, “Junior has ability and he has a lot to learn. I will see what we have when he gets into the ring at the Wild Card. We are taking on a tough one in Duddy.” Duddy responded, “On June 26 it will be me and Chavez Jr inside the ring. Just the two of us. Freddie Roach will be outside the ropes.” Duddy said he will train in New York City until May 15, then head for a training camp in the Pocono mountains.

Huck vows to avenge Schulz

Sauerland Event

WBO Cruiserweight Champion Marco “Captain” Huck (28-1, 21 KOs) will have revenge on his mind when he defends his title against Brian “The Beast” Minto (34-3, 21 KOs) in Oldenburg on Saturday night. Back in 2006, Minto spoiled the ring comeback of popular German heavyweight Axel Schulz, stopping the former world title contender in the sixth round. “I will avenge Schulz´ loss and make Minto pay,” Huck said. “He has no idea what it means to be inside the ring with me. He is in for a decent beating.”

The American challenger was expected to arrive in Oldenburg on Monday. However, his flight was cancelled, which postponed his arrival until 10:55 on Tuesday morning. Minto did not show much during today´s public training session. “I am very sorry, but I am very tired,” he said. “It will be different on Saturday. I will be well-rested and in top shape. I have done everything to leave the ring as the winner.” His manager Pat Nelson was equally optimistic. “One should not underestimate Brian,” he said. “He pulled off a major surprise against Schulz and he will pull off another upset on Saturday night.” (more…)

Pirog, Macca score KOs

By Alexey Sukachev

Highly regarded Russian middleweight Dmitry Pirog (16-0, 13 KOs) continued his way up in the ranks with the sixth-round TKO of Estonian Sergey Melis (15-2, 6 KOs) in the only televised bout, which lasted longer than one round on Tuesday at the Yubileyniy Palace of Sports in St. Petersburg, Russia.

WBO #2, WBC #10, WBA #11 and IBF #14 160lber Pirog did little to showcase his true power. Working more like a sparring session was on, Dmitry tried to test his defensive skills against a sturdy yet limited opponent. Pirog bobbed and weaved in the center of the ring to frustrate Melis and landed his trademark left hooks and left-right uppercuts at will. The Estonian, however, proved tougher-than-expected type of opponent frequently landing big left hooks over Pirog’s raised gloves and even connecting with some telling uppercuts of his own. The Russian fighter preferred a steady and smart pressure, slowly increasing his punch output as the rounds passed by. In round six, he finally decided enough was enough and went right at Melis. He dropped him with a liver shot and soon finished him off at 2:42 with the same shot. Pirog is now WBC Baltic middleweight champion.

WBC #20 and former WBO cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli (32-4, 25 KOs) brilliantly proved that he had some more serious fight potential in him (despite the severe crtiticism and harsh, opposite opinions) by disposing of WBC #17 Russian Alexander Kotlobay (18-2-1, 12 KOs) in the first round of a scheduled twelve for a vacant EBU cruiserweight title. Macca looked as great as during his best years. He promptly checked Kotlobay’s belly before setting some huge right hands. One of them put Kotlobay down hard in the midst of the second minute of the stanza. Kotlobay got up on shaky legs and was soon pinned to the ropes where Enzo Maccarinelli unleashed a wild fury of punches. The end came at 2:15 of the first after a major uppercut by the Welshman, which almost tore Kotlobay’s head off. A huge comeback for thought-to-be-faded Maccarinelli, who can fight Alexander Frenkel later this year. (more…)

Kentikian/Brähmer wrap-up

Strong TV ratings for Saturday’s Universum Champions Night event featuring world champions Susi Kentikian and Jürgen Brähmer. The live telecast of the Killer Queen’s bout against Nadia Raoui attracted 3.4 million viewers and a 23.2 share around midnight. A taped telecast of Brähmer against Mariano Plotinsky still had 2.49 million viewers and a 25.6% market share at nearly 1AM. Those matches, plus four more, can be seen in their entirety on www.youtube.com/UBPboxing. “We saw fantastic boxing fights in a sold-out arena,” said Universum promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl. “Certainly that’s a great thing though we could have sold more tickets in a bigger arena. Jürgen has become more and more stabilized and confident in his fights and we aren’t afraid of bigger fights for him. We now aim for a unification bout.”

“The female fight was a highlight as we had predicted. After the 8th round it was a draw on the scorecards and the ninth round went to Susi and the final round was close one. I’m trying to see it in an objective way and don’t want to see things through rose-colored glasses. I didn’t see either Susi or Nadia three points ahead but I don’t think that Nadia won the fight. We are thinking about a rematch and both fighters were very convinced about their performance.”

“About our future: we will not sell short and we will continue. We’ve just extended our contract with Adidas for another 3 years and they wouldn’t extend this deal if they don’t know how it will continue.” More quotes…
