Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora trade words at tense London presser, shake hands on cash bet ahead of July 26th rematch

By James Slater

Rival British heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora came face-to-face at a London press conference today, yet another promotional piece to further hype up the rematch that will go down on July 26th in Manchester. And Fury, who out-pointed an admittedly out of shape Chisora back in 2011, was very much in fight mode today; letting loose with plenty of foul language and having to be pulled away from Chisora, who is also up for this fight, a final eliminator for the WBO heavyweight title, in a huge way. At one point during the proceedings, though, Chisora apologised to the fans for the foul language Fury was letting loose with.

“I don’t give a f**k how many women and children are in the audience,” Fury, sporting a shaven head, shot back. “We’re getting near to the fight and I’m in fight mode, kill mode.” (more…)

Lara: There is no way I lost to Canelo

WBA “regular” super welterweight champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara (19-2-2, 12 KOs), whose title was not on the line against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs), feels he was robbed in their fight that took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this past weekend.

“Before the decision was announced, I felt 100% confident I won the fight,” said Lara. “The facts don’t lie, I landed more total punches. Looking at it from the punch stats, you’re supposed score based on clean and effective blows landed. Most of the shots that Canelo landed were body blows that didn’t even land cleanly, and most of them came in the round where I got cut. All my punches were clean shots. I out jabbed him and boxed his ears off. The punch stats don’t lie…there is no way I lost to Canelo.” (more…)

In the biggest fight this week, undefeated unified junior featherweight world champion Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux will defend his titles against top-five contender and two-time world title challenger Sod Looknongyantoy on Saturday at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena. The Rigondeaux vs. Looknongyangtov world junior featherweight championship fight will be televised via same-day delay as the main event of Solo Boxeo Tecate on UniMas, beginning at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Rigondeaux (13-0, 8 KOs), of Miami, Florida, one of boxing’s top pound for pound fighters, returns to the ring making his 2014 debut. Last year he unified the WBA and WBO 122-pound titles by defeating 2012 Fighter of the Year Nonito Donaire on April 13, 2013, at a sold-out Radio City Music Hall in New York. He then defeated former two-time world champion Joseph Agbeko on December 7 via a dominant unanimous decision in Atlantic City. (more…)

Usemanee targets Barthelemy

It didn’t take long. New IBF super featherweight champion Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy is being called out just days after his title-winning decision over Argenis Mendez. Afghani-Canadian super featherweight contender Arash Usmanee (21-2-1, 10 KOs) says the new champion has only one thing he can do to prove he deserves his spot on top.

“Barthelemy himself knows he didn’t beat me when we fought,” said Usemanee. “If that fight was anywhere but his backyard, he would have never even gotten the chance to fight for the title. If he’s a true champion, he will face me in his first defense and try to erase what everyone but the three judges saw as a loss for him. (more…)

In a fight for honor and glory, Mexican superstar, former world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and WBA Super Welterweight Champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara, of Cuba, squared off in front of 14, 239 fans Saturday night the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Contrasting Mexican and Cuban schools of boxing, Canelo stalked the elusive and slick Lara throughout the fight, pulling off a split decision.

Canelo came out pressing with the jab from the start while Lara kept his distance. Later in the round, Alvarez, landing a thudding blow to the body, backed the Cuban to the ropes. In the second round, a stiff straight right from Canelo appeared to stagger Lara early, though it was an entanglement of feet. Lara regained composure quickly, circling the ring and landing his straight left while Canelo sought to cut off the ring . . . click here for full report

Following their showdown Saturday night Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Erislandy Lara spoke to media at the post fight press conference at the MGM Grand. Also present were promoter Oscar De la Hoya and the winners from the pay per view undercard.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez: “You all saw the fight. We knew what type of fight to bring. We would bring pressure but we didn’t expect a marathon. I wanted to give a better fight there is saying, you need a partner to make love and in boxing you need a good partner for a better fight. The first couple of rounds I was trying to cut the distance. The plan was to cut off the ring. I threw the harder punches and that’s what did it. I will fight whoever. I wanted this fight because you all said I didn’t want it and that he was going to take me to school. I don’t think anyone wants to go to his school. I want to let everyone know I will take any fight.”

Erislandy Lara: “I did my job. It’s disgraceful what they did. There are no words to explain the judge that had it 9-3. Oscar has been robbed before he knows and Canelo knows I won. We want a rematch!

Oscar De la Hoya: “What I heard nobody wants a rematch. There are ten guys in line and now Lara has to wait in line. Canelo won tonight and we have to move on.” (more…)

Chazz Witherspoon wins in comeback fight

By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Heavyweight Chazz Witherspoon (30-3, 22 KOs) made an impressive comeback scoring an eighth round TKO over a very motivated Tyyab Beale (9-5-1, 3 KOs) on Saturday night at the Riverwinds Community Center in West Deptford, New Jersey. It was a back and forth affair. Witherspoon finally began to overpower Beale and in the eighth and final round he rock Beale with a right hand. Beale slid into the ropes and Witherspoon then landed a series of unanswered punches prompting referee Allan Huggins to halt the bout. Time was 1:58.

Afterward, Witherspoon stated that Beale was tougher than he expected but he was satisfied with his performance and thankful to get the victory. It was Witherspoon’s first fight in over two years.

In the co-feature, welterweight “Relentless” Jeff Lentz (4-0, 1 KO) pulled the upset, outwilling Tim Witherspoon Jr (10-5-1, 2 KOs). Lentz was just a busier fighter in winning 59-55 across the board.

Canelo wins split decision over Lara

In a non-title grudge match fought at a contract weight of 155 lbs, former world champion Saul Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) scored a split decision over reigning WBA super welterweight champion Erislandy Lara (19-2-2, 12 KOs) on Saturday night in front of 14,239 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Southpaw Lara mainly jabbed and moved. Canelo pressed the action but didn’t land much early. Lara made Canelo miss badly in round three. Canelo started working the body more in round four. The body attack paid dividends as Lara’s movement slowed dramatically by round six. Canelo cut Lara over the fight eye with an uppercut in round seven. Canelo punished Lara with hard shots in rounds eight and nine. Lara then seemingly got a second wind and the last three rounds were close. Scores were 115-113 Lara, 117-111, 115-113 Canelo.

“I came to fight,” said Canelo after the fight. “If he wants to run then go to a marathon. You don’t win a fight by running…when he learns how to fight, I’ll give him a rematch.”

Lara stated, “I did my fight and I won this fight. I made him look bad in front of his crowd…I still have no respect for him and I want a rematch.”

2008 Mexican Olympian Francisco “El Bandido” Vargas (20-0-1, 14 KOs) scored a third round TKO over former two-division world champion Juanma Lopez (34-4, 31 KOs) in a super featherweight bout. Vargas staggered and dropped the game but smaller Lopez in a wild round three as both fighters went to-to-toe. Lopez’ corner stopped the bout between rounds.

Former three division world champion Abner Mares (27-1-1, 14 KOs) returned from his KO loss to Jhonny Gonzalez 11 months ago to outpoint Jonathan “Polvo” Oquendo (24-4, 16 KOs) in a rather dull ten round super featherweight bout. Mares, now with trainer Viril Hunter in his corner, was cut over the left eye in round four and referee Kenny Bayless ruled the cut was caused by a punch. Mares, however, then outboxed Oquendo the rest of the fight. Scores were 96-94, 98-92, 98-92.

Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera (21-4, 7 KOs) claimed the WBA interim super lightweight title with a twelve round majority decision over reigning beltholder Johan “El Terrible” Perez (19-2-1, 13 KOs). Herrera won an entertaining and competitive fight full of sizzling exchanges and two-way action. Scores were 114-114, 116-112, 116-112. In his previous fight Herrera dropped a close decision to WBC/WBA world champion Danny Garcia, now “El Maestro” can claim a portion of Garcia’s WBA world title.

Undefeated WBO bantamweight world champion Tomoki “El Mexicanito” Kameda (30-0, 19 KOs) scored a spectacular seventh round KO over #1-ranked contender and former champion Pungluang Sor Singyu (46-3, 31 KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Pungluang rocked Kameda in round four, but Kameda ended a competitive fight with a devastating left hook to the liver that sent Pungluang down like a ton of bricks. Time was 1:35.

Kameda, who turned 23 today, and his two brothers, Koki, 27, and Daiki, 25, recently made boxing history when all three held world titles at the same time. Tomoki is the only current champion in the family.
