Donaire-Ruiz in the works

By Gabriel F. Cordero

There are talks underway for an elimination bout ordered by the WBC between #1 ranked super bantamweight and former world champion Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz (35-2, 31 KOs) and #3 rated multi-division former champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire (34-3, 22 KOs). Ruiz is represented by Promociones del Pueblo and Sampson Boxing, and Donaire by Top Rank. The current WBC super bantamweight world champion is Leo “Terremoto” Santa Cruz, who could soon move to featherweight, which would open the door for Ruiz-Donaire to be for the vacant title rather than an eliminator. Stay tuned.

Lundy going back to his roots

From shopping for rings to stepping inside of one, 2015 figures to be a prominent chapter in the story of Philadelphia’s “Hammerin’” Hank Lundy. Six days after he walks down the aisle to tie the knot with his longtime fiancée, Valerie, Lundy will step back into the ring to face super lightweight contender Mauricio Herrera in the 10-round main event of Golden Boy Promotions’ July 11th show in Los Angeles live on HBO Latino.

As his life outside of the ring changes, Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KOs) hopes his current career path can take a similar turn for the better. Eight years into a career that has featured its share of ups and down, the 31-year-old Lundy is at crossroads coming off a narrow loss to Thomas Dulorme in his HBO debut in December. (more…)

Wilder-Molina Quotes, Pedraza-Klimov in co-feature

Undefeated Heavyweight World Champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) will make the first defense of his title when he faces Eric “Drummer Boy” Molina (23-2, 17 KOs) in the main event of Showtime Championship Boxing on June 13, live on Showtime at Bartow Arena in Birmingham, Alabama. In the co-feature, undefeated Jose “The Sniper” Pedraza (19-0, 12 KOs) will be opposed by Andrey Klimov (19-1, 9 KOs) in a 12-rounder for the vacant IBF junior lightweight world championship.

“It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to defend my heavyweight championship in my home state,” Wilder said. “I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. It was one of my dreams to win a world title. This was my other dream to be able to defend it before all my fans in Alabama. I can’t wait until fight night to step into the ring and see the whole state coming out to support me.”

“I remember just a few months ago watching Deontay get ready for the biggest fight of his life,” Molina said. “I thought to myself, ‘someday, that’ll be me.’ I stared with envy not knowing that a few months later I’d get my turn. Winning the heavyweight world championship is my dream. Just as it was Deontay’s dream, it’s mine now. He had his turn, though it will be short-lived. I will become the first Mexican-American heavyweight champion. Guaranteed. So, champ, come prepared for war. I’m coming to kick some ass.”

Tickets for the event, which is promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with Bruno Event Team are on sale now. Tickets start at only $25 with the best seats in the house going for $200.

Ojeda vs. Meza-Clay headline as FNF nears end

ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights series continues to wind down to its end next week. In the second to last show, undefeated, up-and-coming lightweight Reynaldo “El Maestro” Ojeda (16-0, 9 KOs) faces veteran Monty Meza-Clay (36-4, 22 KOs) in the 10-round main event from the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Connecticut. In his last fight, Ojeda scored a unanimous decision win over Sergio Villanueva, while Meza-Clay is looking to rebound from a 10-round unanimous decision loss to Rod Salka.

Reynaldo Ojeda: “Monty Meza-Clay is an offensive fighter that throws a lot of punches. He comes all the way forward, that’s his main goal. He’s a person that really talks a lot inside the ring to get the other fighter confused. But we’re ready. We’re ready to go all the way.”

Monte Meza-Clay: “I have the same approach for every fight. I just impose my will on him; let him try to figure me out. I’m going to be me – I’m going to stick to my game plan. There’s nothing different other than – ring the bell, let’s fight! You hit me, I hit you back!”

Phillipe Nover: The Manila Redemption

There is something to be said about the power of redemption and second chances.

The comeback is a storyline deeply ingrained in the culture of sports, as the athlete in the pressure of the moment has already dealt with adversity or a setback that took them away from something they’d invested passion and effort into. Simply making it back to do that thing they do one more time is not only a testament to their mental fortitude, but proof they refused to be denied the chance to reclaim what was once lost and now found once again . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (32-0, 29 KO), WBA/IBO middleweight champion pulled no punches when he worked out with his trainer Abel Sanchez at the Wild Card West Gym in Santa Monica. “Do you want me to hit it harder?” asked GGG working pads with Sanchez, after hitting so hard that Sanchez lost his mitts. “Can you? Really?” jokingly asked Sanchez, who insists that his fighter hits even harder that even before. “He’s always been strong enough, but now he has better technique,” said Sanchez working with his fighter in the ring surrounded by reporters.

Golovkin’s opponent this coming Saturday night at The Forum, Willie “Mongoose” Monroe Jr (19-1, 6 KO), decided that he would just show his speed and ring movement. “I don’t need to knock Golovkin out. I just have to be smarter and faster,” stated Monroe Jr.
