Pascal-Hopkins set for Dec. 18

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

“It looks like quite a Christmas present for boxing fans,” said promoter Yvon Michel of the impending December 18 fight between undisputed light-heavyweight champion Jean Pascal and future Hall-of Famer Bernard Hopkins. “We have an agreement in principle and I’m just awaiting the paper work to finalize,” said Pascal’s promoter who saw his fighter rise to the top of the division with an impressive win over Chad Dawson on August 14 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The fight is penciled in for Quebec City but not yet finalized. “Jean could have sat back and waited for the spring and we would have been happy with his decision,” said Michel of his fighter who is wasting no time in getting back into the ring. He worked really really hard in preparing for Dawson and he certainly was entitled to some time off, but he was eager to get back in there and face a fighter like Hopkins. He wants to fight the best there is in the division and Hopkins and Dawson were the only name he was considering.”

Meehan defeats Quinn

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former world heavyweight challenger Kali “Checkmate” Meehan (36-4, 29 KOs) outpointed Evans “The Sandman” Quinn (18-5-1, 16 KOs) over twelve rounds to capture the IBF Pan Pacific title on Thursday at the La Montage Reception Center, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Meehan, at 6.5″ and 239.9lbs, was the aggressor from round one pumping out the left hand to the head and right hands to the body to rattle up the points. Quinn, 224lbs, displayed good evasion, ring skills and fast hands as he had his good moments connecting with fast combinations. In round seven Meehan delivered a right hand bomb to the head of the American that had him on unsteady legs. At the conclusion scores were 118-110, 117-114, 117-113.

Get ready for Molitor-Ndlovu III

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

It’s not likely to push Gatti-Ward or Ali-Frazier out of the top-ten of boxing’s top trilogies, but prepare yourself for Molitor-Ndlovu III. Should IBF super-bantamweight champion Steve Molitor get by Jason Booth next Saturday September 11, he’ll be obligated to meet Takalani Ndlovu once again. Molitor stopped the South African in the 8th round in 2008 and recaptured the belt with a twelve round decision this past March. “Who in the hell wants that fight?” said Molitor’s promoter Allan Tremblay. Ndlovu moved into the mandatory position last night with a win over fellow countryman Jeffrey Mathebula with a close (on two scorecards anyway). With the hopes that the bout was somehow for the vacant number two position within the IBF and that Ndlovu would somehow have another step before completing the trifecta, Tremblay confirmed the bad news. “God no, I wish I could tell you that was the case, unfortunately though it was for the mandatory position.” (more…)

Hatton says he’s done

Former world champion Ricky Hatton has told BBC Radio Manchester that he will probably never fight again. “You can never say never, but if I was to put my last pound on it I would say ‘no, I think that’s me done,'” he said. “…I’ve been retired, if that’s what you can call it, for 16 months. I announced I was going to make a comeback and I came back off holiday and went into a training camp for three or four weeks, but it just wasn’t the same.” He added that he’s renewed his boxing license just in case he changes his mind.

Martinez-Burns Preview

By Graham Houston

Home advantage will help Scot Ricky Burns when he challenges junior lightweight champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez in Glasgow on Saturday, but the heavy hitting champion from Puerto Rico has won in Britain before.

The fight, on the same show as John Simpson’s featherweight bout with unbeaten prospect Stephen Smith, is intriguing, and promoter Frank Warren has delivered a strong double-header to launch the new season of weekly fights on Sky Sports in the U.K. although the switch from Fridays to Saturdays means that European boxing fans will now be faced with fights clashing on TV on a Saturday night. (The Felix Sturm-Giovanni Lorenzo fight in Germany will be televised at around the same time as the Sky show, for instance). more + photos

Fana wins vacant IBF belt

Mthalane keeps belt, Ndlovu, Takayama win

By Ron Jackson

Mzonke Fana won the vacant IBF junior lightweight title when he overwhelmed Cassius Baloyi at Carnival City, Brakpan, on Wednesday night. The scores of judges Neville Hotz 119-109, Alf Buqwana118-110 and Isaac Tshabalala 119-110 tell most of the story in what was a completely one-sided contest.

Fana (58.80kg) went on the attack in the fist round and stayed on his toes and on top of his opponent until the end of the bout. The sheer volume of punches, rather than power, won the fight and the belt for the hero of Khayelitsha, Cape Town, who has now claimed his second IBF junior lightweight belt. (more…)
