(SHOWTIME 9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on West Coast). “I think I will defeat Yonnhy Perez by knockout,” Agbeko said from his South Florida-based training camp. “I’m not underestimating him.

Abraham-Taylor presser

Photo: Howard Schatz

Jermain Taylor today dismissed Arthur Abraham’s talents at a packed press conference at the o2 World Arena in Berlin. More than 14.000 fans will be in attendance when the two former champions open the Super Six World Boxing Classic in Germany´s capital on Saturday night (SHOWTIME®, 8 p.m. ET/PT, tape delayed). Taylor added fuel to the fire today when he publicly questioned his opponent’s class. Asked how he would rank Abraham, he replied: “There is nothing special about him. He has some power and I know he will be prepared to do battle, (but he is) just a normal fighter. I would not rank him at the top with some of the other fighters I have fought.”

Abraham refused to return the verbal jab. “He can say what he likes. I am sure he will have a different opinion once I have caught him for the first time. I really look forward to Saturday. This is a special fight, the first of many big fights in the Super Six tournament. I am ready and prepared and cannot wait to get in the ring with Taylor.” (more…)

Froch-Dirrell presser

Undefeated WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (25-0, 20 KOs), of Nottingham, England, and unbeaten, 2004 Olympic U.S. medalist Andre Dirrell (18-0, 13 KOs), of Flint, Mich., met in a heated press conference on Wednesday to promote their 12-round showdown in the Super Six World Boxing Classic at Trent FM Arena in Nottingham, England, on Saturday, Oct. 17, live on SHOWTIME® (8 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the west coast). The two threw verbal jabs at one another. Here is a sampling of the heated exchanges:

Said Froch: “He knows he’ll be in deep water on Saturday and he knows when I start connecting with the bombs he’s going to be in serious trouble.”

Said Dirrell: “I’m glad he thinks it’s a slight advantage for him being at home because he’s going to need it. I’m coming with my A game and I guarantee you that I will keep that crowd quiet and he will get lost for words by the third or fourth round.” (more…)

Froch: Dirrell looks gaunt

Carl “The Cobra” Froch and Andre “The Matrix” Dirrell will weigh in ahead of this Saturday’s Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown in the historic setting of Nottingham’s famous Old Market Square at 5pm on Friday. As always, Froch is confident that he will make the weight without any difficulty but he believes his Dirrell may be struggling to shift those last few pounds. “My weights down, I was already a pound inside the 12 stone limit when I woke up yesterday morning so that won’t be a problem,” said the WBC super middleweight champion. “I’m eating good food and I’m feeling very strong. Dirrell’s quite tall for a super middle at 6 foot 1 so I think he probably struggles a bit to get down to 12 stone. From what I’ve seen of him since he arrived in the U.K. he looks a bit like a boiled chicken the way his cheeks are sucked in. He looks quite gaunt so maybe he’s struggling with the weight because when I met him in New York a few months back to launch the Super Six tournament he looked a lot fuller and healthier. He looks a lot different now so I think he has to work very, very hard to get that weight down and I’m sure travelling from the States at the weekend won’t have helped either.”

Soliman predicts Abraham KO

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Middleweight contender Sam Soliman predicts that former IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (30-0, 24 KOs) will score a knockout over Jermain Taylor (28-3-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night in Berlin, Germany. Soliman said, “Abraham won the the IBF title in 2005 when he stopped Kingsley Ikeke. I was supposed to fight for the vacant title against Ikeke but I decided to challenge Winky Wright. The rest is history – I lost a controversial decision against Winky and Arthur Abraham became the IBF champion by defeating Ikeke. Abraham has showed himself to be an outstanding champion defending the championship an incredible eleven times. He has been an outstanding middleweight champion. In my opinion he would have defeated Kelly Pavlik had they met in the ring to unify the titles. Jermain Taylor cannot defeat Abraham. The German will chop the tall American down and stop him in a late round.” Soliman holds wins over several world rated super middleweights and middleweights including Sakio Bika, Raymond Joval and Enrique Ornelas, as well as losing disputed decisions to Anthony Mundine and Winky Wright. He is currently chasing a shot at IBF middleweight champion Sebastain Sylvester.

‘This is MY time’ says Camacho Jr.

Live on PPV Oct. 30 from El Paso!

DSC_6365“This is my time – Junior time!” is the latest from the fight camp of Hector Camacho, Jr., who is matched up against Ramon Luis “Yory Boy” Campas on PPV from El Paso, Texas, Oct. 30. “I demanded this fight with Campas.  This is personal: he offended my father and my family. I know there are members of the media saying why Campas, but they need to remember that Campas is a really tough fighter who has fought the very best and held his own. Just because he is somewhat older does not mean he’s finished. Is Hopkins young? Is De La Hoya young?”

Camacho promises Campas a punishing result on Oct. 30:  “I’m not just beating him I’m knocking him out!  He’s definitely not on my level and I’ll show the world October 30.”

“LATIN INVASION 2” will be held at UTEP’s Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas. The event will be on live on Pay-Per-View. Tickets for this event available at TicketMaster, or can be purchased at the Don Haskins Center box office, at 915-747-5234.

Proving that last week’s bad weather was never an issue in training camp, Manny Pacquiao dominated his sparring partners Tuesday at the Shape-Up Gym in Cooyesan Hotel in Baguio City. Pacquiao sparred with highly touted former two-time world lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo of Mexico for three rounds. Pacquiao is preparing for his upcoming world welterweight with Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto set for 12-rounds at a catch weight of 145lbs scheduled on November 14 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, Nevada. In his anticipated sparring with Castillo, Pacquiao used his vastly improved lateral movements in trying to avoid the Mexican’s uppercuts and body shots. Pacquiao stalled Castillo’s aggressive attacks with three to five punch combos and counter left straights. (more…)

The two former champions will open the hotly anticipated Super Six World Boxing Classic in front of what will be a sell-out crowd at the o2 World Arena here on Saturday night (SHOWTIME®, 8 p.m. ET/PT, tape delayed). Not just the German capital, but the international press and fans around the world are buzzing with anticipation. Camera teams from Russia, Denmark, Italy, Germany and America, amongst other nations, were deployed to cover today’s training session. King Arthur believes his opponent will be in for “an unpleasant surprise”. He said: “Taylor is good, he is a proven champion, but he has never been in the ring with someone that punches as hard as I do. He will find out on Saturday. I have a lot of respect for him, but he will not beat me in my hometown. The Super Six is the biggest challenge of my life and I want to be a star in America once the tournament is over.” For more details and photos click here…

Pacquiao spars with Castillo

By Nick Giongco

Manny Pacquiao finally engaged ex-world champion Jose Luis Castillo of Mexico in a sparring session on Tuesday in his training camp in Baguio City and two key figures inside the Filipino’s camp were both satisfied with the showing of the 35-year-old warhorse from Sonora state. “Castillo proved to be a worthy sparmate,” said Pacquiao’s Canadian adviser Mike Koncz, who personally picked Castillo to spend some quality minutes with his boss. Conditioning coach Alex Ariza was also all praises for Castillo, who will likely fill in the void that will be left by Urbano Antillon. Antillon is due to return to the US this weekend so he could get used to the local weather there as he prepares for a fight next month. Freddie Roach wanted to know if Castillo was indeed in shape as he ordered the Mexican to start off the seven-round session by going three rounds with Pacquiao. After Castillo, Pacquiao worked with unbeaten super-welterweight Shawn Porter. So far, Pacquiao has logged a total of 38 rounds of sparring. Pacquiao, who faces Miguel Cotto on Nov. 14 in Las Vegas, spars thrice a week.
