Martinez predicts KO

By Francisco Salazar

Ricardo Conde

Middleweight titleholder Sergio Martinez usually allows his fists to do the talking for him. However, the mild-mannered Martinez could not help himself by making a bold prediction about his 12 round fight against Paul Williams. “I’m going to stop him in seven rounds,” said Martinez to Fightnews.com at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard on Sunday afternoon. He was in attendance to take part in a fundraiser to raise money for travel and lodgings for amateur fighters in the gym. (more…)

Abril defeats Reyes

Photos: mpsportimages.com

Richard “El Tigre” Abril (13-2, 6 KOs) captured the WBC Latino lightweight belt with tonight’s unanimous decision victory over game Jose “El Gallo” Reyes at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL. Reyes falls to 23-9 with 8 KOs. The taller Abril controlled the action with solid right hands catching Reyes as he vainly charged to close the distance. Referee Frank Gentile issued the first of many warnings to Abril for holding behind the head to begin the first round. Despite Gentile’s warnings to both fighters in the first, fourth, eighth and ninth rounds, “El Tigre” showed good speed and accuracy considering his recent 10 month layoff away from the ring. Reyes fought back valiantly in the middle rounds, landing a flush right hand which snapped Abril’s head back to close the ninth.. Unfortunately, it was too little too late as Abril regrouped to win the final round. The three judges scored it 99-91, 97-93 and 98-92 for Abril. (more…)

Margarito ready for upset

Story by Felipe Leon

To many in the boxing world, fans, writers, other fighters, the three-time welterweight champion Antonio Margarito (38-6, 27 KOs) of Tijuana, Mex., has a large cross to bear after an illegal material was found in his hand wraps prior to his championship bout versus “Sugar” Shane Mosley in January of last year.

Like Atlas, who according to greek mythology holds the weight of the heavens on his shoulders, many believe that Margarito has a similar weight to carry as he will always will have to address questions of whether he knew or didn’t know what was in those wraps that fateful night in Los Angeles. For the 32-year-old Margarito, as he trains for the biggest fight of his career, the idea of still having to clear his name is not a thought that crosses his mind . . . Click here for more
