Unbeaten super welterweights collide Sept 13

Unbeaten super welterweight Torben Keller (10-0-1, 3 KOs) faces fellow unbeaten Arman Torosyan (12-0-1, 9 KOs) at the Nordic Fight Night on September 13 at TAP1 in Copenhagen. Keller will be hoping to avenge countryman Reda Zam Zam’s defeat KO defeat to Torosyan last year. “I remember that fight,” said Keller. “Reda outboxed Arman in the first five rounds, but then things went wrong for Reda. Arman has a good jab and a dangerous left hook, but I feel well prepared, and I feel that I’m the better boxer.” In recent months Keller has teamed up in camp with Mikkel Kessler, Abdul Khattab and physical trainer Thomas Macon.

Kayode gearing up for WBA title clash

World Boxing Association number-five ranked heavyweight, undefeated Lateef “Power” Kayode (20-0, 16 KOs) has been working hard preparing for his WBA interim heavyweight championship bout against fellow undefeated contender Luis Ortiz ((21-0, 18 KOs) on September 11 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The resident of Hollywood, California and native of Lagos, Nigeria is training at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood under the watchful eye of Hall of Fame trainer, Freddie Roach.

Despite moving up from cruiserweight, Kayode is not at all intimidated by Ortiz who will have close to a three-inch and 20-plus pound weight advantage.

“He is strong and big. I know that and it doesn’t concern me at all. I spar a lot of big guys out here and I am used to it. I have been doing my job as I know this is a big opportunity. This fight will give me a heavyweight title belt and that will only lead me into bigger fights…They say nobody wants to fight Ortiz. Well I am not scared and I will be there. I am not scared of anybody.” (more…)

IBF #1 flyweight ranked, McWilliams Arroyo (15-1, 13 KOs), will travel to Thailand on September 2, for his fight against the IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng (13-0, 5 KOs).

But now he has more time before the fight in Thailand,” said Peter Rivera, PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) Vice-President. “It will be a long journey to Thailand, like 29 hours, but we trust in the experience McWilliams has.

Zhakiyanov faces Edisherashvili Sept 10

Bantamweight powerhouse Zhanat Zhakiyanov will face Georgia’s unbeaten Gagi Edisherashvili at the Moulin Rouge Club in Minsk, Belarus on September 10. Zhakiyanov is the reigning European champion but will this time contest the WBC’s vacant EPBC crown. As he is already ranked at number two in the world, victory should push the Kazakhstani puncher closer to a clash with current WBC ruler Shinsuke Yamanaka.

“As Zhanat is so close to a world title fight we could have looked for an easier fight that this, but I think he performs at his best when he’s given a test,” said Zhakiyanov’s trainer and promoter Ricky Hatton. “Although this Georgian might not be very well known, he’s unbeaten in seven fights and anyone who doesn’t know how to lose is always dangerous.”

Yes Floyd Mayweather can read

By Kelly Swanson

I have worked with Floyd Mayweather since 2005 and feel it is only right that I come to his defense. The unfair reports that Floyd cannot read, which have been posted on social media by various individuals and reported by certain media outlets, are simply not true. The proof is in the pudding. This video that was recorded by Floyd for promotional purposes (which included taping a spot for a CBS College Football game and a spot promoting his fight against Marcos Maidana). I believe it is extremely unfair for people to make claims against others that are unfounded and hence, filled with malice. Help me right this wrong and report “the rest of this story” with these facts.

Maidana rips into Floyd: Don’t be a little b*tch

Former world champion Marcos Maidana ripped into current WBC/WBA welterweight and super welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather during an international media conference call in advance of their PPV title clash on September 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Marcos Maidana: For the second fight he can come out differently, have a different game plan. I’m not gonna change. I’m gonna come and I’m gonna put the pressure on and I’m going to try to force him to fight. I’m hoping that he doesn’t start running like a little b*tch all over the ring.

The way to counter his defense moves, the shoulder rolls, and the arms and all that is I’m going to hit him there. I’m gonna hit him in the shoulder, I’m gonna hit him in the arms, and come the eighth or ninth rounds he’s going to be so tired from all the punches that he’s not going to be able to defend himself anymore.

I’m preparing for anything. I hope that he stands and fights but if he’s going to run like a little b*tch, I’m going to have to chase him.

It doesn’t bother me [that Floyd thinks he’s a dirty fighter]. There’s things he does in there, as well. It’s better for him to stop crying and just fight.

I’m going to do my job. I’m going to come and fight. I want him to come and fight. To stand and fight like a man. Don’t be a little b*tch like a woman running around. Fight like a man. Stand and fight like a man!
