Ricardo Williams to face Carson Jones on December 15

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.”

Amir Khan: Fans will back me even in Lamont Peterson’s hometown

By Karl Freitag

He may be fighting in his opponent’s hometown, but unified super lightweight world champion Amir “King” Khan said during an international media conference call on Monday that he will be the fan favorite against #1 rated IBF contender Lamont Peterson on December 10 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, DC.

Amir Khan: I really think going into this fight, even though the fight is in Lamont Peterson’s backyard, I really think we will have more support than him. There’s a lot of fans coming from New York and close states near Washington DC and I really think we’ve have a bigger fanbase.

We’ve had some tough, tough sparring partners who have been very strong and not taking a step back, they’re probably tougher than fighting Lamont.

He brings a lot to the table, but we know exactly how to deal with that. We’ve got a game plan that we’re going to work on and hopefully we’ll take Lamont Peterson out of his game plan and beat him. That’s our job, to beat him and move on to bigger and better things.

Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez planning for another barnburner

By Karl Freitag

During an international media conference call on Monday, world-rated junior middleweight contenders Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez both promised that Saturday’s rematch of their all-action draw from earlier this year will be another great fight.

Delvin Rodriguez: The first fight I was off about a year, so it took me a little bit to get into the rhythm. Pawel Wolak is a guy that jumps right on top of you from the first bell, but this time I’m feeling much better. I know his style. I’ve been working longer, so I think there are going to be a lot of differences in this fight. It’s going to be a good fight because you’ve got two different styles. He puts pressure a lot, he likes to stay on top of you. How do you keep somebody off you? You’ve got to let those combinations go and hit him hard. So that’s what makes it a good fight.

Pawel Wolak: I hope to bring same style of fighting I brought for the first fight. Of course, I’ve got to be smarter. I’m always going to be aggressive. I’m here to fight. I’m a fighter and I’m going to fight hard. Obviously there’s got to be some changes and things you can improve on, you’ve got to evolve, you’ve got to get better, there no question about it. I had a longer camp than I’ve ever had in my life, my body’s ready, my body is in shape and I think it’s going to be a great fight. I know he’s trained his butt off, so we’re going to settle it finally on Saturday.

Wolak (29-1-1, 19 KOs), from Rockaway, NJ, and Rodriguez (25-5-3, 14 KOs), of Danbury, Conn, will renew their in-ring hostilities on the pay-per-view undercard of Cotto-Margarito II on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.

Green-Wlodarczyk Final Presser

Report and photos by Brett Bonetti

Danny “The Green Machine” Green (31-4, 27 KOs) and Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk (45-2-1, 35 KOs) held a final press conference at Challenge Stadium in Perth Australia ahead of their highly anticipated WBC World Cruiserweight title fight this Wednesday November 30th.

There was high praise for Green from well respected agent and matchmaker Don Majeski from the US. Majeski said that Green could be fighting for a place in the Boxing Hall of Fame should he defeat Wlodarczyk on Wednesday. Majeski, said victory for Green in his first fight after a stoppage loss to Antonio Tarver in July would put him on the cusp of boxing greatness. “I think this is the measuring point whether Danny Green becomes a Hall of Fame fighter or not,” Majeski said.

The Blueprint: Bisping vs. Miller

TUF Finale 14 is LIVE on Spike TV Dec. 3!

Not to beat a dead horse, but this Saturday’s Ultimate Fighter 14 finale main event between coaches Michael Bisping and Jason “Mayhem” Miller, just like many others, is about one man keeping it on the feet and the other taking it to the ground. Brilliant, I know. But that is the reality for most fights, particularly when one man has a significant edge on the feet and the other on the ground. . .

Newly-crowned world title holder Erik Morales will return to the ring in January, Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Eric Gomez told Fightnews.com on Friday. There had been speculation of Morales possibly facing Floyd Mayweather in 2012, but Gomez put those rumors to rest with the announcement of Morales’ next fight. Gomez said that Morales will make a voluntary defense of the world title belt he won in September, stopping previously-unbeaten Pablo Cesar Cano at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. Gomez also told Fightnews that Morales’ bout will take place somewhere in Mexico. “We don’t have an opponent yet for Erik or where the fight will take place,” said Gomez from Mexico City, where he was in town for Saul Alvarez’s fight against Kermit Cintron that took place on Saturday. “We’re still working with Televisa as they will dictate where and when the fight will take place.” All indications of Morales starting to train for the proposed bout in January were confirmed on his twitter page (@terrible100), tweeting on Sunday that he would take an approximately 50-minute run on Monday.
