Matthew Hatton: I am world class

European welterweight champion Matthew Hatton says he will prove he is a world class fighter next week. Matthew makes the second defense of his Euro belt when he faces undefeated Swiss star Roberto Belge at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium on November 26.

Since I beat Ben Tackie two years ago I have had some really good wins and believe I have been fighting at world class. If I am world class I have to go in there do a number on Belge and show I belong there. That is what I am aiming to do.

By Phil Doherty

Vitaly Demyanenko (19-0, 12 KOs) of Kazakhstan will not face fellow undefeated welterweight prospect Brad “The King” Solomon (14-0, 6 KOs) next week in Nicaragua as scheduled.

“So when can I start running?” asked Antonio Margarito moments following succesful surgery today to repair a fractured right orbital bone at Methodist Hospital in Dallas, Texas. Sergio Diaz, manager of Margarito, said “the doctor told us everything went perfect – no complications of any kind. There is nothing wrong with his right eye.

“Antonio is such a warrior. The first thing he asked was ‘when can I start running’ and we told him he has to relax for awhile,” Diaz said. “For sure, at least 60 days of no contact of any kind in a gym.”

Margarito said “I fought as hard as I could against a great champion in Manny Pacquiao.”

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green is ready to retain the championship on Wednesday when he will punch it out with the bigger American BJ Flores over twelve rounds at the Challenge stadium in Perth, Western Australia. Green said he is not worried by the weight difference and also challenges Flores’ statements that he is confident of defeating Green and taking the title back to the USA. “He is not short of words,” Green said. ”I think BJ is just trying to pump up his own chances and inflate his own confidence. I don’t take too much interest in what he says. I’ve won three world titles and I’ve been competing for world titles for seven years. Roy Jones: I’ve taken him out in one round. I’m a veteran of the sport, and I’ll know what I’m doing on Wednesday night.” (more…)

Abraham-Froch heats up

By David L. Hudson Jr.

On November 27th in Helsinki, Finland, boxing fans get to see on SHOWTIME what could be a true classic, as sluggers Arthur Abraham and Carl Froch battle in the Super Six super middleweight tournament. Mick Hennessey, Froch’s promoter, says the fight could be a “fight of the decade candidate.” An intriguing aspect of the bout is that both former world champions are coming off their very first defeat. Abraham lost to Andre Dirrell by disqualification and Froch lost a narrow decision to Danish fighter Mikkel Kessler in Denmark.

Froch says he will bring his WBC super middleweight title back to England and that he has a “massive, massive chance” to win the Super Six tournament. Referring to Abraham’s defeat to Dirrell, Froch said that “he got beat and outclassed by a guy I beat.” Froch emphasized that he is a true, power-punching super middleweight, while Abraham is a middleweight who moved up two fights ago. Abraham responded: “I don’t want to talk as much as Carl Froch; I will show you in the ring on November 27th.”

Breakdown: Penn-Hughes III

Many athletes claim that age is just a number.  BJ Penn has a different take on that adage. For the Hawaiian, weight is just a number—literally.

Penn has competed in four different weight classes during the course of his career, with 15 of his 23 professional fights occurring at lightweight, four at welterweight, one at middleweight and one at heavyweight.  Yes, you read that correctly.  On March 26, 2005, Penn faced former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida in a heavyweight bout in Japan.  Penn weighed 191 pounds for that fight.  Machida weighed 220 pounds.   “The Prodigy” lasted until the final bell, losing a unanimous judges’ decision, but often getting the better of the Karate expert during standup exchanges . . .
