Maidana: I wouldn’t give Floyd a kiss

After being in training camp for almost six months so far this year WBA Super Lightweight champion Marcos Maidana is having his deserved vacation in his native Argentina. El Chino beat Erik Morales in April and made the first defense of his title last Sept. 23 in Buenos Aires, where he stopped Russian Petr Petrov in four rounds. Now the KO artist is waiting for news about his next fight.

“I am anxious to know who my next opponent would be. The sudden cancellation of the fight against (Robert) Guerrero last Aug. 27 changed our plans a lot. But things like those happen in boxing. The good thing is I was able to fight in front of my people. That was great but now I’m ready to go back to the big leagues,” Maidana said. (more…)

Rossi’s size stuns Huck

"Giant" isn't as tall as expected

Photos: Sauerland Event

WBO Cruiserweight Champion Captain Huck (33-1, 24 KOs) could not believe his eyes when he met challenger Rogelio Rossi (17-2-1, 11 KOs) at today’s press conference in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Listed at 6’6, the “Argentinian Giant” turned out to be much smaller than that. “Maybe he shrunk of fear,” Captain Huck said. “Doesn’t matter anyway. I don’t care what size he is. I have knocked out taller and smaller opponents. I will clinch a spectacular victory on Saturday night. He will not get my title.” Huck then measured his opponent. The result: 6’3 and a half!

Rossi seemed to enjoy the confusion regarding his height. “It’s true, I’m not two meters tall,” he stated. “But I will still defeat Huck. If you’re scared, your opponent looks much bigger than he actually is. I guess this has happened to Huck. I will take his title on Saturday night. I have trained hard and I will win.” (more…)

Matchroom, Proksa extend pact

Matchroom Sport has announced that European Middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa has extended his promotional deal with the company. The unbeaten Polish fighter claimed the vacant European strap after forcing the retirement of Sebastian Sylvester and his dominant display in Germany at the start of the month has seen the 26 year-old become hot property. Proksa imposed himself on the former World champion and hometown favorite Sylvester from the first bell, silencing the partisan crowd with his commanding performance and winning new fans in the process. He signed terms with Barry Hearn at Matchroom’s Essex headquarters with his manager Krzysztof Zbarski, and said he’d always wanted to join up with the legendary sports promoter. “Ever since watching Chris Eubank fight Graciano Rocchigiani in Germany in 1994 I’ve dreamed of joining up with Matchroom,” said Proksa. “I believe with Matchroom behind me I can go on to win a World title next year.”

Rayito Garcia injured?

By Rey Colón -The Sport Press

Unconfirmed rumors say that former WBO 105lb champion Raul ‘Rayito’ Garcia (30-2-1, 18 KOs) will not be able to face former champion Ivan Calderon (30-2-1, 6 KOs) on October 29 because he allegedly suffered a hand injury while training. Garcia lost his championship on August 27 against Moses Fuentes by split decision in an optional defense before facing Calderon. However, Fuentes (14-1, 6 KOs) suffered a serious nose injury so the WBO lined up Garcia to face Calderon for the interim minimumweight title with the winner to face Fuentes.
