in his fight this Saturday against Julio Paz (12-1, 4 KOs), former WBC light flyweight champion Edgar Sosa (42-6, 25 KOs) risks not only his WBC International title, but also his mandated challenge against long time WBC flyweight champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam (80-3-1, 44 KOs). Pongsaklek, who now has 17 world title defenses, will also defend his world championship this week against Japan’s Takuya Kogawa (17-1, 10 KOs) in Thailand. If both win, 30 days of free negotiation will begin. If no agreement is reached, the WBC will proceed with a purse bid.

Duran-Mundy: Full Report

By Kurt Wolfheimer

There was a little bit of everything for boxing fans who attended the fights at the Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, New Jersey on Wednesday night. In the main event of the evening, “The Ghanian Gladiator” Ossie Duran captured the USBA Atlantic Coast Region title with an impressive tenth round stoppage of Latif Mindy. The undercard had a little bit of everything, including draws, tooth and nail bouts, and even disqualifications. The main event had plenty of intrigue going in. For Duran it would be a big step in the way back into contention with a recognizable name like Mundy. Going in on a two fight winning streak and sporting a record of 25-8-2, 9 KOs, a victory was essential for the thirty-four year old man residing in Accra Ghana.

By Wolfgang Schiffbauer

When middleweight champion Felix Sturm talked to FightNews a little over a week ago, he made a prediction for his bout against Matthew Macklin. He said: “This fight has the potential to be great and I believe it will be.” Sturm could not have been more right.

The defending WBA titlelist and his tough-as-nails challenger from Ireland indeed went to war on Saturday night in front of over 18.000 ecstatic fans inside the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany. Sturm, usually a fine technician, and Macklin, a brawler, stood toe-to-toe for the better part of their world title clash. They exchanged hard-shots, the momentum shifted back and forth. In the beginning, it was the relentless challenger who had the upper-hand. In the end, it was the more precise champion who landed the better punches. “This was one of the best fights I’ve seen in over 20 years of covering boxing,” said one journalist at ringside.

Klitschko-Haye Quick Quotes

Heavyweight champions Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye went at it verbally at today’s press conference in Hamburg. Haye showed up 30 minutes late and refused to shake Wlad’s hand.

Klitschko: “I respect you as a boxer, but not as a person. I’m gonna knock you out in the ring and bring you back to reality. Then you will be a better person and have better manners.”

Haye: “It’s going to be fun watch this robot start malfunctioning, that’s what’s going to happen…real fast. I’m healthy, speed is ridiculous, punch power is there, I’m just in a really good place. I am so happy the fight is happening now and not a couple of years ago as I am a much better fighter now. I can’t wait to get in there and do what I am going to do.”
