More on Mayweather-Maidana press tour

Day two of the four-day, five-city cross-country press tour to officially announce the September 13 PPV rematch between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Marcos “El Chino” Maidana will feature stops in Chicago and San Antonio. These events are open to the public.

Yesterday the fighters hit New York City, and after a long delay, finally made a late night appearance in Washington DC.

Here are some additional comments from both fighters.

Floyd Mayweather: “Is Maidana a better fighter than Canelo? No. Cotto? No. He’s just a dirtier fighter. I didn’t get a deep gash from a punch; I got it from a head butt…First they [Team Maidana] want to use gloves with no padding, and then they want to use knees, elbows and everything else. My back is always against the wall with Team Maidana.”

Marcos Maidana: “I fight dirty? He’s the king of the elbows.”

Mayweather pushed Maidana to bet his purse if he’s so confident of victory. Maidana responded that he’ll bet “whatever” but asked whether Floyd will let him use his gloves. Before their first fight, Mayweather reportedly paid Maidana an extra $1.5 million to switch to a different model.

Additional information on today’s press stops:

Auditorium Theatre, Chicago, IL (50 E Congress Pkwy)
Fan Arrival Time: 11 a.m. CT
Press Conference Begins: 12 p.m. CT

Six Flags Fiesta Texas – Lone Star Lil’s Amphitheater, San Antonio, TX

Johnny Britz dies

By Ron Jackson

Former Transvaal heavyweight champion Johnny Britz died at Boksburg on Monday. Britz, who fought from 1969 to 1975, was 65 years old when he passed away at home.

He fought Stoffel Willemse and Japie Pretorius twice each, Chris Roos and Jimmy Richards three times each and Mike Schutte four times.

In an unusual start to his career, he had two fights on the night he made his professional debut on August 18 1969. He was entered for a heavyweight competition at the Wembley Ice Rink in Johannesburg and knocked out Jan le Roux in the first round of his first bout. In the second, he lost on points to Jan Delport.

Mayweather-Maidana kickoff press conference

Times Square in New York City was the place for Monday’s kick-off press conference for the PPV rematch between WBC/WBA welterweight and WBC/WBA super welterweight champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Marcos “El Chino” Maidana taking place Saturday, Sept. 13 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Marcos Maidana: I think I deserved this rematch. Without a doubt, we’re going to prove who won the first fight in this rematch.

Maidana trainer Robert Garcia: The only question everyone’s asking, and I still don’t know the answer, everybody’s asking about the glove situation and we can’t answer that question. That question you have to ask Mayweather himself.

Floyd Mayweather: Am I fighting a boxer or am I fighting an MMA fighter? I don’t know…elbows…what I can’t believe is this is one of the best trainers in the world but he’s telling his fighter to fight dirty. If he can beat me, do it the honest way, earn it the hard way. But I gotta realize this. I know where I’m at in my career because I was champion when your trainer was champion. It’s been almost 20 years and I’m still here. When your trainer’s career was long gone I’m still here. When I beat you and your career’s over, guess what? I’ll still be right here.

Let me step back so y’all can check my swag. The diamond Gucci belt, it’s official. The Dita glasses, it’s official. The diamonds are always flawless. The style is always flashy. Check the Forbes list. It’s all about “Money May” all day. Let me step back so y’all can check my swag. Get your cameras out and take a picture!!! This is gonna be the last time y’all see a champion like this.

OK, I got something better than that for you, since I know I’m probably making about $70 million. He believes in his skills and I believe in my skills. So however much you’re making for the fight, I’ll bet you I’ll beat you. That’s how much I believe in myself because I can afford to give up whatever. So if you believe in your skills like you say you believe in your skills, however much you’re making for the fight, I’ll bet I beat you. Bet the fight! If he believes in his skills bet the fight. Bet the fight! Either you’re going to bet or not. Either you’re going to piss or you’re going to get off the pot. That’s what I’m talking’ about. I played his hole card.

Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora trade words at tense London presser, shake hands on cash bet ahead of July 26th rematch

By James Slater

Rival British heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora came face-to-face at a London press conference today, yet another promotional piece to further hype up the rematch that will go down on July 26th in Manchester. And Fury, who out-pointed an admittedly out of shape Chisora back in 2011, was very much in fight mode today; letting loose with plenty of foul language and having to be pulled away from Chisora, who is also up for this fight, a final eliminator for the WBO heavyweight title, in a huge way. At one point during the proceedings, though, Chisora apologised to the fans for the foul language Fury was letting loose with.

“I don’t give a f**k how many women and children are in the audience,” Fury, sporting a shaven head, shot back. “We’re getting near to the fight and I’m in fight mode, kill mode.” (more…)

Lara: There is no way I lost to Canelo

WBA “regular” super welterweight champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara (19-2-2, 12 KOs), whose title was not on the line against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs), feels he was robbed in their fight that took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this past weekend.

“Before the decision was announced, I felt 100% confident I won the fight,” said Lara. “The facts don’t lie, I landed more total punches. Looking at it from the punch stats, you’re supposed score based on clean and effective blows landed. Most of the shots that Canelo landed were body blows that didn’t even land cleanly, and most of them came in the round where I got cut. All my punches were clean shots. I out jabbed him and boxed his ears off. The punch stats don’t lie…there is no way I lost to Canelo.” (more…)

In the biggest fight this week, undefeated unified junior featherweight world champion Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux will defend his titles against top-five contender and two-time world title challenger Sod Looknongyantoy on Saturday at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena. The Rigondeaux vs. Looknongyangtov world junior featherweight championship fight will be televised via same-day delay as the main event of Solo Boxeo Tecate on UniMas, beginning at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Rigondeaux (13-0, 8 KOs), of Miami, Florida, one of boxing’s top pound for pound fighters, returns to the ring making his 2014 debut. Last year he unified the WBA and WBO 122-pound titles by defeating 2012 Fighter of the Year Nonito Donaire on April 13, 2013, at a sold-out Radio City Music Hall in New York. He then defeated former two-time world champion Joseph Agbeko on December 7 via a dominant unanimous decision in Atlantic City. (more…)

Usemanee targets Barthelemy

It didn’t take long. New IBF super featherweight champion Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy is being called out just days after his title-winning decision over Argenis Mendez. Afghani-Canadian super featherweight contender Arash Usmanee (21-2-1, 10 KOs) says the new champion has only one thing he can do to prove he deserves his spot on top.

“Barthelemy himself knows he didn’t beat me when we fought,” said Usemanee. “If that fight was anywhere but his backyard, he would have never even gotten the chance to fight for the title. If he’s a true champion, he will face me in his first defense and try to erase what everyone but the three judges saw as a loss for him. (more…)
