Andy Ruiz to face Nagy Aguilera next

Top Rank, in association with Bash Boxing, Art of Boxing Promotions, and the Glendale Civic Auditorium in Glendale, California, will bring Solo Boxeo Tecate on Unimas back on August 9. In the main event, rising undefeated Mexican-American heavyweight prospect Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz Jr. (22-0, 16 KOs) will defend his NABF and WBO Intercontinental heavyweight titles against Nagy Aguilera (19-8, 13 KOs). Ruiz, the former amateur standout and Mexican Olympic Team member, has quickly ascended the pro ranks in his last three bouts by displaying his speed and explosiveness in early knockouts of Manueal Quezada (28-9), Tor Hamer (21-2) and previously undefeated prospect Joe Hanks (21-0). Ruiz is currently ranked #2 in the world in the WBO and #11 in the world in the WBC. Aguilera gained world recognition in 2009 when he knocked out former WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev in the first round. (more…)

Former world lightweight champion and all-action fighter Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios, undefeated WBA super lightweight champion Jessie Vargas, his next challenger undefeated contender Anton “The Pick Hammer” Novikov, and 2012 U.S. Olympian and social activist Jose Ramirez hosted a Los Angeles press conference Tuesday to discuss their upcoming fights, which will headline an HBO boxing event on August 2 at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Rios faces former interim world champion Diego “La Joya” Chaves (23-1, 19 KOs) of Buenos Aires, who was not in attendance. Vargas (24-0, 9 KOs) will be making his defending his title against Novikov (29-0, 10 KOs). Ramírez (10-0, 8 KOs) will be featured in an eight-round lightweight bout on the non-televised undercard.

Brandon Rios: I’m very exited to be back. It’s been eight months missing in action. People thought I was in Miami, but I wasn’t. I was in my house depressed, crying because I wanted to get in the ring and fight again. That’s what I love to do and I’m just very happy to be back to show everybody that I’m not done yet. The last two fights was, you know, it happened the way it did and that’s alright. Also I’d like to thank the Cosmopolitan for giving me the first fight to fight there and I’m very excited because it’s like breaking into the virginity for the first time, first fight there.

Kovalev to B-Hop: Any time, any place

As Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (24-0-1, 22 KOs) prepares to defend his WBO Light Heavyweight World Title against Blake “Il Capo” Caparello on August 2nd on HBO, there is some media buzz about the possibility of a unification fight between Kovalov and IBF/WBA light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KOs), after Hopkins called out Kovalev in an interview. “All I want to do is fight the best,” responded Kovalev “I wanted to fight Stevenson but he ran away. I would get in the ring with Bernard Hopkins right now! Any time, any place! But who knows? Maybe he’s just trying to get more money from Showtime? So, I am focused on preparing for my fight on HBO on August 2nd and after we’ll see if Hopkins will really get in the ring with me.”

Kovalev’s promoter Kathy Duva/Main Events stated that she reached out to the Hopkins’ side but no one knows who would represent Hopkins in negotiations until Hopkins sorts out his promotional situation with Golden Boy.

Canelo wants to take back Mexican holiday fight dates from Mayweather

By Karl Freitag

WBC/WBA welterweight and super middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather has essentially taken over the Cinco de Mayo and Mexican Independence Day weekends, fighting exclusively on those dates since 2010. However, last week Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez stated he wants to fight on those dates which are so important to Mexico and used to feature fighters like Julio Cesar Chavez and Oscar De La Hoya.

“I want to retake those dates and bring them back,” said Canelo. “Those dates are Mexican dates! They’re Mexican independence dates, and yes, for next year I will be fighting, I want to be fighting on those dates!”

Canelo’s promoter Oscar de la Hoya commented, “Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has given me strict orders, obviously he wants to follow in the footsteps of the great champions hailing from Mexico like Julio Cesar Chavez, fighters that have started the tradition of fighting Cinco de Mayo, started the tradition of fighting in September. Canelo now being a star of his own and a big draw and a person who the fans adore, me, as his promoter, it is my obligation to do what’s best for the fighter. So we’re obviously focusing 100% on Erislandy Lara and then we will be sitting down with Saul Canelo Alvarez and plan out his future.”

BJ Penn: A Fighter Retires

There was always a running joke among a couple members of the UFC production team and myself when it came to BJ Penn. Event after event we would trade our war stories, trying to top each other by revealing the journey it took to finally track down the ever-elusive “Prodigy.” After it was all over, we would laugh at the same punchline: “But when we got him, he gave us gold.” . . .

Gavronski ready for limelight

On Friday, ESPN2 will telecast live from The Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington. The ten round main event will be a WBC Continental Americas middleweight title fight between heralded Tureano Johnson (14-1, 8 KOs) and little known Mike Gavronski (14-0-1, 11 KOs). Gavronski is an interesting case. A five-time Washington State Golden Glove champion, Gavronski’s pro career got off to a very slow start. Trouble with local promoters, managers, and trainers seemed to follow the young man around. Eventually Gavronski would gravitate toward Sam DiTusa, a Seattle Policeman who has worked with some of the Northwest’s best fighters. (more…)

Fujioka keeps WBA female 115lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

Unbeaten Japanese Naoko Fujioka (12-0, 6 KOs), 115, successfully made her initial defense of the WBA female super-flyweight belt as she overcame a five-inch height difference and pounded out a unanimous decision (all 97-93) over OPBF titlist and compatriot Tomoko Kawanishi (9-2, 4 KOs), 115, over ten heats on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The taller challenger made a good start by throwing a long left-right combination to the much shorter champ, who kept moving to-and-fro to feel out Kawanishi’s aggressiveness and stiffness as well. Fujioka, who dethroned compatriot Naoko Yamaguchi last November, regained her rhythm from the second on, precisely landing fast combinations and quickly moving out of the range. Though Kawanishi, eleven years her junior at 27, was in command in round four, when she kept stalking the elusive champ with busy but less accurate combos.

From the fifth on, it became a nearly lopsided affair as Fujioka often had Kawanishi at a standstill with solid roundhouse combinations to the face to sweep all thereafter. The champ’s left hooks repeatedly bounced off the face of the taller upright stylist. (more…)
