Last night, Mayen Promotions in association with Zanfer presented a special fight card celebrating Mexico’s version of Labor Day. Returning to the new home of Tijuana club fights, the Las Pulgas nightclub, the twelve bout fight card failed to match the quality of the past year and a half offerings promoter Guillermo “Memo” Mayen has been able to put together. Despite of that, the hall was alive with more than twelve hundred fight fans supporting a cast of local fighters as well as some out-of-towners. One of them, Guadalajara, Mexico’s Joselyn Arroyo (13-0, 5KOs) made quick work of the game but over matched Karla “La Diosa” Mora (1-2-1) of Tepic, Mexico, in the second round of a scheduled super flyweight eight.
Arroyo, whose NABF flyweight strap was not in play, took control early as she was able to use superior boxing skills to keep the action from the outside. Mora matched the tall Arroyo’s height but not her record who despite being announced as undefeated at 8-0, a bit research revealed that her actual ledger was nowhere close to that. After a few seconds of the first round, Mora began to shoot her own set of counter punching attack on the straight punches coming from Arroyo. Near the end of the round, Mora was able to score with a hard left hook that got Arroyo’s attention. (more…)

Jose Aguiniga was forced to withdraw from his fight tomorrow night against Francisco Vargas at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas after he was rushed to the hospital this afternoon after collapsing in the gym apparently suffering from severe dehydration. The previously scheduled eight-round welterweight clash between Antonio Orozco and Jose Reynoso has been increased to a ten-round fight and moved up to the main event slot of tomorrow’s card which will be televised by FOX Sports Networks and FOX Deportes.

Dallas’ Spence Jr. (4-0, 3 KOs) faces Brandon Hoskins (16-4-1, 8 KOs) Columbia, Missouri in a six-round junior middleweight bout while Joseph Diaz Jr. (3-0, 1 KO) of South El Monte, Calif. will take on Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico’s Eric Gotay (3-1, 1 KO) in a six-round junior featherweight battle.

A confident Jose “Chelo” Gonzalez, the World Boxing Organization (WBO) lightweight #1 ranked, made today his last training in Puerto Rico before his travel to Glasgow for his world title bout against the champion Ricky Burns on May 11, at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland, in a Matchroom Boxing presentation.
Gonzalez (22-0, 17 KOs), who is also the WBO Latino champion worked today for the Puerto Rican media and showed his good condition to challenge Burns (35-2, 10 KOs) in his homeland.
“We are in the final stage of my training and I feel very good thanks to God”, Gonzalez, who is going to travel tomorrow to Scotland, said. “We have worked intensely, as always, for my fights, but with the focus in win the title.” (more…)
Unbeaten boxing superstar Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. is a -750 favorite to defeat Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Guerrero backers can get +475. “As is the case in many of Mayweather’s recent fights, with him being such a big favorite we see a ton of dog money with bettors looking for the big payout,” said Kevin Bradley, Sportsbook Manager of Bovada.lv. “That’s once again the case this Saturday. The book can take a real hit if Guerrero can pull off the upset paying out at +475 and if he were to win by KO at 7/1, that would essentially ruin what has been a decent year for us in boxing.” (more…)
Irish featherweight contender Patrick “The Punisher” Hyland (27-1, 12 KOs), rated #11 by the World Boxing Association (WBA), faces an opponent to be determined in the eight-round main event on May 18 at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York. The 29-year-old Hyland, who lives in Marlboro, New York, is coming off his first pro loss. Last December in Las Vegas, he lost a 12-round decision to undefeated Javier Fortuna for the vacant Interim WBA featherweight title. (more…)

Sam Soliman just announced that his B-sample came back clean. To us, this does not make sense at all. He confessed to drinking an energy drink containing the forbidden stimulant found in the A-sample. Again, they made a confession.
We do not know what they tested the B-sample for in the lab they have chosen. We know that the sample was split and one half is still at the NADA/WADA lab in Cologne, Germany. We are sure that this will confirm the result of the A-sample, if they elect to have it opened. From the beginning, Team Soliman insisted that the substance found was not forbidden by the IBF. But it is. Oxilofrine is regarded as a stimulant and all stimulants are banned by the IBF. Furthermore, both the BDB and the NADA/WADA list Oxilofrine on their list of banned substances.
We therefore believe that their part of the B-sample was not even tested for the substance found in the A-sample. Once again, they have confessed to taking said substance. We believe that the ban by the BDB will be upheld and the bout between Soliman and Felix Sturm will remain a “No Contest”. We also believe that the IBF will honor the BDB’s decision. We are shocked at the way Team Soliman is handling this situation, as we have never seen someone as unfair and unprofessional as they are presenting themselves. This is hurting our sport and should not be accepted.

Sam Soliman (43-11, 17 KOs) has tweeted the following today:

The BDB (Bund Deutscher Berufsboxer) had this week changed the result of Soliman’s victory over Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16 KOs) on February 1 to a no-contest. Soliman’s manager, Dave Stanley successfully sought to have the B sample split so it could be tested in a US laboratory that does regular screening of boxers, including IBF boxers. Soliman is now keen to move on and face current champion Daniel Geale (29-1, 15 KOs). The IBF had ordered Geale to make a mandatory defense against Soliman.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero won’t go at it for three days, but their trainers, who also are their fathers, Floyd Sr. and Ruben Guerrero were ready to throw down during a heated, intense verbal exchange at Wednesday’s press conference in Las Vegas. This time, Ruben was the instigator. Before he even made it to the podium to speak, he was hurling insults at Floyd Jr., who was seated at the dais. Later, it was Floyd Sr.’s turn. After the speaking portion of the press event had concluded, the fighters had already posed for photographs and Floyd Jr. was doing an interview with Showtime when Floyd Sr. approached the stage, screaming at Ruben every step of the way. Floyd Sr. had watched the proceedings from the media section (at Floyd Jr.’s insistence). Once he made it on the stage, the fathers were quickly separated and order was restored.
Ruben Guerrero (On the disagreement and Floyd Sr. not being on the dais): “I’ll hurt him, man. If I hit him one time, I don’t want to be responsible. He opened his mouth first. He opened the can of worms. If he’s going to talk, I’ll do it for real. They should’ve let him hang up here like a real man.”
Floyd Mayweather Sr. (Regarding his son prohibiting him from sitting at the dais): “He knows how I am. He knows I’m the kind of guy I am that I won’t be listening to that B.S. and that I’m gonna attack.”
“The head trainer is always supposed to be up there on the podium. I guess they didn’t want me up there. Why is his daddy up there and I’m down here?” (more…)

The Mayweather-Guerrero press conference was a routine affair until Robert Guerrero’s father/trainer Ruben Guerrero got to the podium.
Ruben Guerrero: I don’t talk s__t man, I back it up. I back it up baby, anytime, anywhere, like I said and we’re going to beat-up that woman beater, the one who beat up his wife, man . . . his wife in front of his kids, you guys like that s__t? You like this guy? A woman beater? He must have learned that from his dad. Woman beater baby, we’re going to beat that woman beater. See how he’s going to like it, he’s going to get it from a real man. We’re going to beat that woman beater down! You guys hear me what I said baby!
Oscar de la Hoya tried to get Guerrero away from the mic.
Oscar: It’s okay, it’s okay.
Ruben: Beat up his wife in front of his kids. That’s bulls__t man! He talked about my son, how he’s a hypocrite, how about him? Woman beater! He beats up women and goes to jail!
Oscar: Thank you very much!
Robert Guerrero: I’m ready. You guys were talking about this is Mayweather’s home, we’re doing a home invasion and like Bob (Santos) said that ‘O’ has got to ‘go.’ Richard here saying ‘records are made to be broken,’ May 4th Floyd Mayweather’s record’s going to get broken. He’s going to have his first loss. You better believe that because I’m ready to go and I can’t wait! I’m excited for this fight, I’ve been working hard to be here and we’re going to get it.
Floyd Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe took the high road and didn’t acknowledge Ruben Guerrero’s tirade.
Floyd Mayweather: Robert Guerrero has obviously done something right to get to this level so at training camp I’m pushing myself to the limit, absolutely. My dad has done a tremendous job, my uncle Roger done a tremendous job, Team Mayweather has done a tremendous job and that’s what it’s about in this sport, matching the best with the best and to go down as a Hall-of-Famer some day you’ve got to fight the best fighters out there and at this particular time, he’s one of the best out there and the only thing I can do is to continue to go out there, rack up victories and be the best I can be and continue to give to you guys excitement and the only thing that I want to do like I said before, is be the best that we can be.
Mayweather’s father/trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. was strangely not on the dias or given a chance to speak, but he got into a heated argument with the Ruben Guerrero after the press conference ended and they had to be separated.

Britain’s David Haye and Manuel Charr of Lebanon came face-to-face today in Manchester, at the press conference to officially announce their upcoming June 29th bout. There were the usual stare-downs and Haye’s trainer Adam Booth stepped between the two at one point. Haye spoke to members of the media, and “The Hayemaker” said he is expecting a real challenge from the man beaten only by Vitali Klitschko.
“He’s a genuine heavyweight,” Haye told Sky Sports when speaking of the 23-1(13) Charr. “He’s a guy with a lot of heart and he’ll fight until he’s dead. He’s a serious guy and people are excited about that. He’s going to be in my face and try and hurt me. Manchester Arena’s going to be buzzing.”
Haye, 26-2(24) and now 32-years-old said his plan is to beat Charr, then one other ranked contender, getting himself to the eventual position of number-one contender for the Klitschkos – “they can only duck me for so long,” he said. (more…)

As returning heavyweight David Haye officially announced his June 29th fight with the once-beaten Manuel Charr at today’s press conference in Manchester, it was also announced that the main supporting bout at The Manchester Arena will be an intriguing lightweight clash between Anthony Crolla, 25-4-1(9) and Gavin Rees, 37-2-1(18).
32-year-old Welshman Rees, last seen giving his all but falling short against the classy Adrien Broner, is a former WBA light-welterweight champ, with the British and European 135-pound belts also captured, while Manchester’s 26-year-old Crolla, last seen boxing a draw with Derry Matthews in their anticipated rematch, is a former British champion.

WBO lightweight champ Ricky Burns says that he is not concerned by Jose Gonzalez’s KO ratio as he prepares to defend his title on May 11 at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow. The mandatory challenger comes to Scotland with 17 KOs from 22 wins and after Burns was floored by Gonzalez’s fellow Puerto Rican ‘Rocky’ Roman Martinez in the first round of their title clash in September 2010. Burns showed true grit to climb off the canvas and rip the title from Martinez, and the 30 year old says he proved that night that he can handle anything thrown at him.
“His knockout ratio doesn’t concern me at all,” said Burns. (more…)

Around the time great Olympians like Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), Floyd Mayweather and our very own Amir Khan were starting their Olympic journey and winning their medals. I was just getting serious with life – lacing on a pair of boxing gloves for the 1st time age 19. I was a young tear away, expelled from two schools, had no qualifications and was just released from a young offenders institution. If you told me then I would be a 2x national champion, Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist, Olympic Games Gold Medalist, B.Sc. University Graduate. M.B.E, European Heavyweight Champion, married, and a parent, I would likely have said that’s just stupid talk. In the rough neighborhoods where I grew up, it’s hard to make dreams come true. There are only so many times you can fall before it becomes foolhardy to continue. I’ve fallen a lot, but winning the heavyweight title was a destination I really wanted to get to. Coming back from adversity has been synonymous with my life. I’ve done well to turn my life around, but sadly my dream to be a legitimate world champion will be unrealised.

Sam Soliman (43-11, 17 KOs) has vowed to clear his name and is reportedly preparing to take civil action against the German Boxing Commission that has suspended him for nine months and ruled his victory over former champion Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16 KOs) a no-contest. The BDB (Bund Deutscher Berufsboxer) changed the result of the bout almost three months after the test following the IBF Middleweight title eliminator on February 1 this year.
Soliman’s manager, Dave Stanley told the Australian Associated Press that it was a fight sanctioned by the IBF and not the BDB and he had already made strong representations to the IBF. Stanley successfully sought to have the B sample split so it could be tested in a US laboratory that does regular screening of boxers, including IBF boxers. Stanley said Soliman’s B sample has been cleared by the American facility and he will appeal to the BDB over their rulings. (more…)
