Matthysse, Judah Quick Quotes

By Mariano A. Agmi

Below are quick quotes from today’s teleconference featuring Zab Judah and Lucas Matthysse. They fight November 6th at Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Center.

Lucas Matthysse: I’m very excited about this opportunity – it’s the most important fight of my career and the biggest name that I’ve faced. The fact that the winner becomes the mandatory for the IBF title does not change anything for me because I was already so hungry to reach the top. Zab is a very talented fighter with a great record. I am sparring with many southpaws to prepare for him. I know that I have few rounds because I won many fights by early round knockout, but I’m preparing hard and putting in many rounds in the gym. I am prepared to go the full 12 rounds if the knockout doesn’t present itself.

Zab Judah: Life is about growing up. As you get older, you mature. At this point of my life, I’m doing everything by the book, I’m doing everything I was asked to do in the past and I’m walking the right path in my life. I’ve pretty much seen it all. Matthysse is a good young fighter: he has good hand speed, he possesses great power and he’s very aggressive. He may have knocked out a lot of fighters, he may have looked good against lower level opposition, but this time he’s fighting Super Zab Judah. This is my weight class, I didn’t get beat out of this division, I bowed out of it when I vacated my 140lb WBO title. I left this weight class a champion, and I’ll come back a champion. It is a matter of time until I get one of the titles or all of the titles. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again, sometimes I get greedy and want all the titles.

#7 Tor Silachai stops Tino!

By Damrong Simakajornboon

WBO#7 lightweight Thai Tor Silachai (18-2,12 KOs) impressively kept his WBO Oriental 135lb crown as he scored a fourth round TKO over former WBO regional title holder Amor Tino (12-7-2,3 KOs) on Friday at Klong 7 Market in Lamlukka, Pathumthani, Thailand. This was a rematch which their first clash occurred in November 2007, the Thai fighter being the winner by a close decision and grabbing the WBC youth 126lb title. Tor Silachai proved his much stronger than before, mostly hunting and weakening the Filipino with vicious body attacks. In round four, the local hero speeded his assaults and successfully dropped his foe with a tough right hook. Finally, a one-side attack was terminated at 2:11 by referee Sawaeng Taweekoon who considered there was no more chance for Tino to turn the tide.

In other action, WBO#5 bantam Pungluang Sor Singyu (31-1,20 KOs) outpointed former Muaythai champion Rungrat Heman in a six round close-affair bout.

Lange back at the Patriot Center

On Saturday, November 6, 2010, popular junior middleweight contender Jimmy Lange (33-4-2, 23 KOs) returns to George Mason University’s Patriot Center to face Joe Wyatt (23-1, 15 KOs) in a ten-round championship bout for the NABA vacant 154-pound U.S title.

Lange is coming off a decisive victory over Baltimore veteran Mike McFail last month at the Greensboro (NC) Coliseum Complex’s War Memorial Auditorium.  It was Lange’s first bout outside of Northern Virginia since competing in The Contender’s “Fan Favorite” bout in 2005.  In his last local fight, the Bishop O’Connell High School graduate scored a second-round KO of Jimmy LeBlanc on July 10, 2010 in his 10th headlining-bout at the Mason venue. While he gained national fame from his participation on the NBC boxing reality TV show The Contender, it’s Lange’s exciting fighting style that has made him a fan favorite throughout his career. Known for his straight-forward approach to boxing, Lange’s arsenal includes a strong jab, an unquestionable chin and heart and knockout prowess. His ability to connect with his fans is evident by the consistent drawing power to his cards. (more…)
