Promoter Peter Maniatis has commented on Danny Green’s ten round decision victory over Roberto Bolonti on Wednesday night in Melbourne, Australia. “It was a great night again for Australia boxing with a crowd of 8,800 and also over 40 Million people watching on CCTV in China,” said Maniatis. “Danny Green is back that is the best performance I have seen from a 42-year-old boxer for a very long time. He reminded me a lot of Bernard Hopkins. The game plan was excellent set up by the professor Angelo Hyder.”
“The fights on the undercard were worthy of main events on other cards, and co-promoting with Green Machine Promotions was an awesome experience! The team are real pros.”
Undefeated hometown favorite Sergeant Sammy “The Who Can Mexican” Vasquez (19-0, 13 KOs) will enter the ring in his own backyard as he battles it out with Jose “Piston” Lopez (25-3, 15 KOs) in a 10-round welterweight match-up on the September 15 edition of FS1’s Toe-To-Toe Tuesdays. The event will air live from the California University of Pennsylvania Convocation Center in California, PA (36 miles south of Pittsburgh) with televised coverage beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
This fight is the second installment of Premier Boxing Champions’ FOX Sports 1 series. The co-main event on September 15 will see a 10-round light heavyweight clash between Thomas Williams (18-1, 12 KOs) and Umberto Savigne (12-2, 9 KOs).
Brian “The Beast” Minto has entered into a management contract with Australian-based Xcite Fight Promotions. The rugged Pennsylvanian has immediately set his sights on Australia’s Danny Green. Green, who was victorious in his overnight victory against Argentina’s Roberto Balonti by way of points, competes in the cruiserweight division.
“Firstly, I’m very excited to be teaming up with Matt Clark and Xcite Fight and getting myself back into the mix,” said Minto. “I’ve been wanting more direction in my career and I’m joining a team that is moving forward. I’ve fought all over the world and I would have no problems in facing Green in Australia. Danny is a tough guy and I respect him immensely. It’s great to see him back in the ring and it’s good for boxing in that part of the world. We both have a great win against Shane Cameron and we are both aggressive come forward boxers. I’ve fought in New Zealand on three separate occasions and I’ve beaten a couple of other Aussies already in my career. It’s a fight that will put bums on seats, have the interest of television and it’s a guaranteed war. I congratulate Danny on his recent win but he’s in my sights”.
Flyweight world contender McWilliams Arroyo will not fight this Saturday in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, because he is heading to an IBF elimination bout against Johnriel Casimero soon in the United States.

“We were negotiating several things for McWilliams, one of which was the possibility of facing world champion Chocolatito Gonzalez but that didn’t materialize, also this IBF elimination. We wanted McWilliams active in August, but the IBF ordered this bout with the number one ranked and we are going to this opportunity,” said Peter Rivera, vice president of PR Best Boxing Promotions. McWilliams is currently ranked number four in the IBF and in 2014 lost a close and controversial split decision to IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng in Thailand. (more…)

“I have nothing personal against Leo Santa Cruz, but the night of the fight I am swinging with bad intentions,” former three-division world champion Abner Mares told Fightnews.com on Tuesday. “I am more than ready for Leo.”
Mares (29-1-1, 15 KOs) of Hawaiian Gardens, California, by way of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, worked out for the media at his gym the Del Mares Boxing Gym in Bell Gardens, California.

A funny thing is occurring this year in boxing.
The fights the fans and media want to see happen are actually being made.
Imagine that, right?
No nonsense, no tune-ups, no “fight and beat this guy now to get the better fight down the line.”
No. Instead, boxing is again providing good, old-fashioned professional prizefighting between evenly matched fighters and it’s happening often.
Whether it was the long awaited showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in May, an upcoming clash between heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury or an unofficial tournament at middleweight with some of the best fighters in the world, boxing fans are starting to get what they want.
One of the major fights fans have been clamoring for was officially announced on Tuesday afternoon at Madison Square Garden in New York City. (more…)
DiBella Entertainment has announced the addition of highly regarded light heavyweight prospect Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic (19-0, 12 KOs) to their ever-growing stable. “We’re pleased to be working with ‘Hot Rod’ Kalajdzic,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “He’s more than just a great nickname, he’s one of the best light heavyweights in the world. At just 24 years old, his future is very bright and big fights are on the horizon.” Look for an official announcement on Kalajdzic’s DBE debut coming very soon.
Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz has announced the signing of Pacquiao’s second cousin, Jonel “The Kid Pacquiao” Dapidran to a long-term promotional contract. 17-year-old Dapidran (6-0, 3 KOs) is an undefeated lightweight prospect from Digos City in the Philippines. Manny Pacquiao’s maternal grandfather and Junel’s father are brothers.
“A San Francisco attorney named Sydney Hall brought Manny Pacquiao to my attention 15 years ago,” said Lewkowicz. “None of the major promoters paid attention, but we saw what a talent he was. I was working as a matchmaker for (then promoter) Murad Muhammad, and I convinced him to sign Manny and bring him to America. Now, as a promoter, I am bringing his close family here for the first time and I strongly believe this young man will make a big statement in our sport.”
As soon as Dapidrani’s visa is finalized, he will live in Las Vegas, sharing an apartment with former world champion Jonriel Casimero. He will also share a trainer with Casimero and join the stable of trainer Jun Agrabio.

Kell Brook, the undefeated IBF welterweight ruler, has always made it clear he wants the big fights. Tim Bradley, the current WBO welterweight champion, has never shirked a big fight in his life. And now, if promoters Bob Arum and Eddie Hearn can thrash out a deal, the two could meet in October in what would be a big and almost certainly exciting unification clash.
Arum is currently in the UK, talking to Hearn, about a possible Bradley-Brook showdown amongst other things. And, in speaking with the paper that broke this story, The Daily Mail, Hearn said Bradley is the man his fighter Brook really wants barring an all-British battle with Amir Khan. (more…)

Female featherweight Maureen “The Real Million Dollar Baby” Shea (24-2, 12 KOs) will battle Yulihan Avila (12-2, 1 KO) in a ten round world title bout that according to Mosley takes a stand against blatant sexism in boxing. “It’s an embarrassment to boxing that UFC and MMA show more respect to their woman fighters than the boxing world does, and it’s about time we caught up,” said Sugar Shane. “I am ready for war these days and I don’t care what kind of blocks they try and put up: I am making a stand. It’s time somebody stood up and demanded things change. Thankfully I have the name and the funds to do that at Mosley Vs. Mayorga 2.”

I know there are lots of Irish fans in the area and hopefully we can bring some out.”
“I haven’t fought since last year so we’re looking forward to getting the rust off and showing what I can do…the boxing I get in Philly gyms is just what you need, working against world class boxers in the summer heat. I’m ready for the challenge. I can’t wait to get back in the ring and get my career moving again.” (more…)

“The sixth round punch was Marco’s hardest. I don’t even remember being hit, or being counted by the referee. Nothing, just blank seconds, honestly. When I regained consciousness, I had no legs, but I did see Marco coming at me, swinging hard. My first conscious thought was ‘what’s going on here?!’ I was in a state of shock. I couldn’t hear, just a noise in my head, but when I saw him swinging, my reaction was automatic – I started swinging back!”

WBC female 105-pound champ, Japanese southpaw speedster Yuko Kuroki (13-4-1, 6 KOs), 105.75, proved too fast and ferocious for Thailand’s Kanittha Saknarong, 106, and scored a quick stoppage at 0:43 of the third round in a non-title eight on Sunday in Fukuoka, Japan. Kuroki, a 24-year-old daughter of the head of Fukuoka Police Station, utilized sharp southpaw jabs from the outset, whipped the Thai girl with quick combinations and finally pinned her to a corner with a flurry of punches, when the third man called a halt to save the loser. Kuroki will defend her belt against the leading available contender to be designated by the WBC in December. (more…)

I’m loyal. That’s my motto. I don’t follow the trend of going with the manager of the moment.

Boxing fans on the lookout for emerging talent should definitely keep an eye on junior welterweight Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (15-0, 12 KOs) out of New Orleans, Louisiana. The 26-year-old southpaw recently gave an impressive account of himself in Atlantic City, NJ on the “Showbox New Generation” TV broadcast, pitching a shutout against felloe unbeaten prospect Amos Cowart. Particularly impressed was former world champion Raul Marquez who was on the ringside broadcast crew. “From what I saw, Regis has the tools to go all the way,” stated Marquez. “I predict a bright future for this young man.”
Regis first got a taste of boxing in his native New Orleans as a teenager, training in local clubs. Then, Hurricane Katrina forced his family to relocate to Houston, Texas, in 2005. To kill time, young Regis went to the Savannah Boxing Club and started being used by heavier boxers as a sparring partner. That is how he caught the attention of boxing manager J. Johns who saw the potential in the young man and launched him into competitive boxing. Fighting in the amateur ranks, Regis compiled an excellent 87-7 record before turning pro in 2012. (more…)

The Playground in Atlantic City debuted as a boxing venue Saturday night, and in the main event, heavyweight Chazz Witherspoon, 34-3, 26 KOs, trounced Nick Guivas, 11-3-2, 9 KOs, for a third round stoppage. Witherspoon had all the advantages in the scheduled 10-rounder, so there were no fun and games for Guivas at this playground.
