Mayfield battles on, faces Lopez

Story by Robert Hough

Boxers like Karim “Hard Hitta” Mayfield get small checks for fighting, do what they can to make ends meet and press onward ever onward in their quests for championships and big money.

Mayfield’s second fight this year follows his June 17 TKO win over Steve Forbes (35-10, 11 KOs) in a televised fight in Austin, Texas. National exposure was a big step forward and winning the NABO title would be another good step, but these are times of lean living, said the 30-year-old father of three. (more…)

Abril-Moses WBA eliminator

By Phil Doherty

The South Florida boxing promotional landscape saw a spike in competition recently with new kids on the block like Miami-based Dream Team Boxing staking a claim to a seat at the table with the big boys. Hoping to establish themselves as fellow “Kings” of the sport, Dream Team promoters Carlos Rodriguez and Henry Rivalta announced a cross-promotion with legendary Don King scheduled for October 22nd.

Dream Team’s third-ranked WBA lightweight Cuban star Richard “El Tigre” Abril (16-2-1, 8 KOs) steps up against King’s WBA #4-ranked former lightweight champion Paulus “The Hitman” Moses (28-1, 19 KOs) of Namibia for the interim WBA lightweight title in Panama during the WBA’s annual KO to Drugs co-main event. The move is all part of the plan Dream Team put into place for Abril, who at 5’11’’ found it difficult to find willing opponents in the past. However, his future is quite clear as the winner of this bout becomes the mandatory challenger for undefeated WBA World lightweight champion Brandon “Boom Boom” Rios (28-0-1, 21 KOs). (more…)
