Gutierrez to defend vs. Tajbert

It was announced today that WBC interim super featherweight champion Humberto Mauro Gutierrez (26-1-1, 19 KOs) will defend against WBC #3 rated Vitali Tajbert (18-1, 6 KOs) on November 21 at the Sparkassen Arena in Kiel, Germany. The “Universum Champions Night” event will be a world title twinbill with unbeaten WBO lightweight champion Zsolt Erdei (30-0, 17 KOs) challenging WBC cruiserweight champion Giacobbe Fragomeni (26-1-1, 10 KOs) in a much anticipated main event. The Gutierrez-Tajbert winner could be WBC super featherweight champion Humberto Soto’s successor, as Soto is considering moving up in weight. The 2004 Olympic bronze medal winner Tajbert has vowed to take Gutierrez’ belt. “I will show everyone in this fight and get that title,” said Tajbert. “At age 20, the Mexican is still very young, but he already has 24 fights and won 19 times by KO. His victory over Gulyakevich shows his dangerousness. This is the biggest challenge of my career and I’m going to fulfill my dream of becoming the first German world champion in the super featherweight division!”

Velasquez ready for contention

UFC 104 is LIVE on PPV Oct. 24!

The last time Cain Velasquez fought, back at UFC 99 in Germany this past June, it was under somewhat extraordinary circumstances. For starters, he was fighting nine time zones away from his California home. That wouldn’t have been so bad if he hadn’t just welcomed his baby daughter, Coral Love, into the world only a few weeks before that bout. Transatlantic flights and newborn babies made for a very tired heavyweight when he stepped in against Cheick Kongo—who originally was supposed to be Heath Herring—in Cologne that night . . . .

More on Froch-Dirrell

WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch and challenger Andre Dirrell have weighed in on their Super Six World Boxing Classic encounter on Saturday night. “It was close but I had no doubt in my mind that I had won the fight,” stated Froch. “He’s a slick, fast, counter puncher and when you combine that with the negativity he showed in there it made it a very difficult night. I don’t know how he expected to come to the Champions hometown and take the WBC belt fighting like that. Nobody likes to see someone running and being negative and I think people recognized that I was trying to make a fight of it but it takes two to tango. I like to stand there and have a fight and give the fans and the TV viewers a real show but Dirrell wasn’t interested in that kind of fight.” (more…)
