K-9: Ready to shock the world!

By Rick Scharmberg

Mention a boxer named “K-9″, and everyone who follows boxing, and, thanks to the TV reality show “The Contender Season 2″, many who don’t, know you are talking about junior middleweight contender Cornelius “K-9″ Bundrage. “It sounds scary, so I picked it up for respect,” said Bundrage of his unusual nickname. “Being from Detroit, which is real rough, I couldn’t be Cornelius – they would try me.” Bundrage is coming off of an impressive fifth round stoppage of IBF #7-ranked Zaurbek Baysangurov, on December 13 in Germany. Bundrage, who was ranked #14 in the IBF before the fight, should move into the division’s top-10 at the very least. (more…)

Arum making plans!

By Matt Richardson

With 2009 barely two weeks old, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is already making plans (and big fights) for the New Year.  On Tuesday Arum was in New York to announce his February 21st double city pay-per-view featuring welterweight Miguel Cotto versus Michael Jennings and middleweight champ Kelly Pavlik against Marco Antonio Rubio.  Also likely to be featured on that card is Top Rank fighter Joshua Clottey, defending his IBF welterweight title against Kermit Cintron.

———-
On January 24th, meanwhile, Arum has Antonio Margarito up against Shane Mosley in an important welterweight match up.  Regardless of the outcome of that fight Margarito will likely fight Cotto again in the second quarter of the year.  “The chances are very, very good; June 14th, the night before the Puerto Rican day parade in the Garden,” Arum said at Tuesday’s press conference.  If Cotto were to be upset by Jennings, however, that fight would not occur.

———-

Arum, meanwhile is also trying to secure Manny Pacquiao’s next fight, which is likely to occur on May 2nd against junior welterweight champ Ricky Hatton at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  “We’re still finalizing it,” Arum said.  “Pacquiao went back to the Philippines and now wants more money but we’ll handle that.  I’ve been through that before,” he said.  Asked if disputes between Top Rank and Hatton promoter Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy could be holding up the super fight, Arum said it wasn’t the case.  “It’s not about Schaefer and it’s not about me.  You can’t put yourself or your company at the forefront of these negotiations.”

———-

In that vein, when asked about a fight between Top Rank pupil Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Oscar de la Hoya Arum noted that there has been a lot of talk out of Chavez’ camp but that “you haven’t heard a lot of talk from the Oscar people.”

Froch ready for Taylor!

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch has directed his venom at Jermain Taylor and his team after suggestions that Froch was sidelined until June with a rib injury. Froch believes it’s just another in a long line of tactics for Team Taylor to avoid facing him. “I’ve no injury worries now and I’m ready, willing and able to defend my title against Taylor,” stated Froch. “I believe Taylor and [Lou] DiBella have been swerving me for some time now, they obviously don’t fancy the job. He declined the opportunity to contest the vacant WBC title with me and instead fought Jeff Lacy in a final eliminator for that same title. Now this mysterious rumor is being spread in the U.S. that I’m injured and out until June so he’s looking at other options. The only person that’s going to be out is Jermain Taylor after I’ve smoked his boots….purse bids for the fight have been called for Friday week so we’ll see what they’re made of then but I can guarantee I’ll be ready to defend my title against Taylor within 90 days of the purse bid as per the WBC rules.”
