Popular Fernando Guerrero added to Khan-Peterson undercard

One of the East Coast’s most exciting and well-known fighters, middleweight prospect Fernando Guerrero has been packing venues for the last few years, building a grassroots following rarely seen in boxing these days. The promising 25-year-old from Salisbury, Maryland will now bring that following to the undercard of “Capital Showdown” which will feature Amir Khan defending his unified super lightweight world championship against Lamont Peterson on December 10 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

Fernando Guerrero’s addition to the event, which already features Washington, DC’s Lamont and Anthony Peterson as well as Brandywine, Maryland’s undefeated heavyweight prospect Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell, makes “Capital Showdown” top to bottom the one of the biggest cards to hit the DC area since Mike Tyson fought there. “I am excited to be getting back in the ring and fighting in the D.C./Maryland area,” said Guerrero. “I’m looking forward to putting on a great performance in front of all my fans.” (more…)

Boswell/Povetkin workouts in Helsinki

Team Sauerland

Cedric Boswell (35-1, 26 KOs) has promised to put American heavyweight boxing back on the map when he challenges WBA Heavyweight Champion Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15 KOs) on Saturday night. The duo will collide in front of a sell-out crowd of 12,000 fans at the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland. “This fight is huge for America,“ said Boswell. “I’m the one legitimate American boxer who can bring heavyweight boxing glory back to America. I´ve already paid for extra baggage to bring the belt home. My message to all boxing fans: The cold war begins December 3, 2011 in Helsinki. The American Dream will soundly defeat the Russian pretender!“

Today both fighters participated in a media work-out at the P3 boxing gym. Povetkin refused to get into a war of words with his opponent. “I will give my answer in the ring,” he said. “We´ve had a great preparation. Teddy Atlas has come up with a great strategy. I respect Boswell as a fighter, but he will not defeat me. I look forward to making the first of many successful title defences on Saturday.”

In the co-featured main event, Finnish heavyweight star Robert Helenius (16-0, 11 KOs), the WBA / WBO Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion, faces Dereck Chisora (15-1, 9 KOs) for the vacant European Heavyweight Title.

WBA Middleweight Super World Champion Felix Sturm (36-2-1, 15 K.o.’s) and undefeated challenger Martin Murray (23-0, 10 K.o.’s) from Great Britain came face-to-face today at the final press conference in front of their Friday night world title clash at the SAP-Arena in Mannheim, Germany. The fighters exchanged some words and both promised victory.

“This fight will be special”, Sturm, 31, promised, “I’ve never felt so good before. If I’m at my best, I will be very hard to beat for anyone out there.” The 29-year old Murray was full of respect for the WBA champ but not shy of big words either: “Sturm is a great and deserving champion but on Friday night, his time will come to end. I will dominate him. I will beat him. And I will grab his title.” His manager Neil Marsh added: “Felix made a huge mistake in choosing this fight. Martin is in tip-top shape and he won’t miss this opportunity. His time has come.” Things heated up a bit at the presser afterwards but only words were exchanged. (more…)

“She’s a tigress”, that is how Amanda Serrano’s New York fans like to describe her. Amanda is the unbeaten (13-0-1, 9 KOs) reigning IBF super featherweight champion, a 5’5 dynamo whose fury in the ring belies her sweet smile outside of it. Recently, the 23 year-old New Yorker traveled to the Dominican Republic for a fight (which she won by TKO in 5). Fightnews caught up with Amanda and trainer Jordan Maldonado to discuss the problems that female boxing faces and what lies ahead for Amanda. (more…)

Jo Jo Dan to be released from hospital after broken jaw surgery

Canada-based Romanian fighter and WBC silver championship welterweight challenger Jo Jo Dan will be released on Tuesday from University Hospital in Trabzon, Turkey. On Sunday, surgeons successfully repaired his broken jaw, suffered Saturday night in round two of his close 12 round UD loss (113-112, 113-112, 115-111) to Selcuk Aydin. Gankor Promotions’ Chris Ganescu opined, “Our brave boxer fought a very competitive, action packed thrilling bout in front of 5000 mostly local fans of current WBC silver champion, Selcuk Aydin.” Although speech was difficult, Jo Jo Dan was able to say today: “If the jaw break hadn’t happened, I would have defeated Aydin. I was immediately aware of my injury but I felt I could continue and win the fight anyway. The official scores proved me wrong but I certainly came close.”

Dan will fly to Romania on Wednesday, November 30th for a well deserved vacation with his family. He is scheduled to land in Bucharest at 18:30 on a Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul. Ganescu added, “Jo Jo will certainly be out of action for an extended period. I think that he can start light fitness training again at the beginning of January 2012…and in three or four months he will certainly be well enough to begin selected light boxing training. I am proud of his gladiator performance. He will be back!”

After ten straight victories, 2000 Olympic silver medalist Ricardo Williams (19-2, 10 KOs) will fight for his first professional title on December 15 when he takes on Carson Jones (32-8-2, 22 KOs) for the USBA welterweight championship at Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Fighting for a title “means everything to me,” Williams says. “This is something I’ve been looking forward to my whole life. I’m extremely confident in my skills, and also in my father and other coaches to study Jones and formulate a game plan. Then all I need to do is execute it.”

Jones, however, says he’s not worried. “I am very familiar with Ricardo from his days being an Olympian to the bumps in his professional career. I’ve scored six straight knockouts and I don’t see Williams giving me any trouble at all. This fight will not be going the distance.”
