Bryant Jennings-Mariusz Wach close

By Przemek Garczarczyk

As we reported last Saturday, quoting Mariusz Wach’s promoter Mariusz Kołodziej from Global Boxing Promotions, there’s a very real possibility of Wach (27-1, 15 KOs) against Philadelphia’s Bryant Jennings (17-0, 9 KO) on January 18 in Montreal. “As far as I know, all we need is some signatures, but both parties already accepted the date, venue and they’re OK with the financials,” said Kołodziej in a Fightnews.com interview. “Wach accepted this fight and we should have all the signatures in place not later than at the end of the week.”

Bryant Jennings, in a quick word exchange with Fightnews.com said, “It’s made. I didn’t sign but it’s made.” (more…)

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Sugar Shane Mosley and Anthony Mundine faced off at Monday’s final press conference in Sydney, Australia. They meet Wednesday at the All Phones Arena in Sydney, NSW, Australia. Mosley did most the talking as Mundine was strangely untalkative.

Shane Mosley: “I’m very serious about this fight. I’m glad that Khoder (Nasser) flew to America to set the contract right. I know this fight means a lot to Anthony. He wants to prove something. I’m not afraid of anybody so I came back out so we can fulfill what we started and that’s what we’re gonna do…the only thing I ask is that he make the weight properly and we’re good. We’ll just get in the ring and fight.”

Anthony Mundine: “It’s all good, I’m ready, that’s it.”

The Mosley Team will be watching closely when Mundine weighs in for their showdown on Tuesday after hearing stories about Mundine having problems making the 154 pound limit. (more…)

Fuentes stops Salado, Gonzalez Jr Stays undefeated

By Felipe Leon
Photos: Leonso Nunez

A last minute free fight card was presented by Zanfer Promotions last Friday night at the new home for Tijuana boxing, the Tecate tent constructed in the parking lot of the historic Caliente Racetrack, where interim WBO light flyweight champion Moises “Moi” Fuentes (19-1-1, 10KOs) took a stay-busy fight in the 112 lbs. division and systematically broke down former title challenger Omar Salado (24-7-2, 15KOs) in the seventh round of a scheduled ten. The bout along with some of the under card was broadcast on tape delay by Azteca America in the United States the following night.

Fuentes, the former WBO minimum weight champ, captured the interim light flyweight strap in his last fight by stopping Luis De La Rosa in the first back in September while Salado has had an up and down ride since challenging for the WBA light flyweight title against Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez in 2011. Stopped in seven there, he went on to lose against Glen Donaire and Giovanni Segura while only winning two and a no-contest since then.

Salado was the busier of the two early on as he took the fight to the much taller Fuentes. The thirty-three year Salado of Acapulco but living in Tijuana went for the body as Fuentes moved along the ropes. Fuentes looked to score as Salado would come in with his head down and scoring with healthy left hooks to the head. (more…)

Pacquiao-Rios Post Fight Presser: Pacman return date April 12 in the USA

By Loren Goodman

Despite the early hour of the post-fight press conference—just past lunch—all the stars were still out over the site of Manny Pacquiao’s triumphant return to the ring at the palatial Venetian Macao Resort Hotel and Casino.

Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO), who handled his hardnosed younger opponent Brandon Rios (31-2-1, 22 KO) with cool composure and pugilistic expertise, winning twenty-seven of thirty rounds on the three judges’ scorecards, opened the press conference with a humanitarian gesture. Before answering questions about the fight, he put a black marker to his trainer Freddie Roach’s punch mitts and chest protector, explaining, “I’m signing these for the people who were affected by the recent typhoon in the Philippines.” (more…)

Pacquiao says he backed off in last round: “Boxing isn’t about killing each other”

With the win in the bag, Filipino ring legend Manny Pacquiao says he eased up on Brandon Rios late in the fight. “In the last round I didn’t want to get careless so I backed off a little bit and gave him a chance to finish. I didn’t do that because I’m tired or anything. I did it because boxing isn’t about killing each other. Boxing is about entertaining people. And I think through twelve rounds people were satisfied with my performance. Why be careless like the last fight with Marquez?”

Trainer Freddie Roach stated, “Manny did take it easy in the last round. I feel he didn’t step on the gas pedal. I think he could have finished Rios, but he told me there was no sense in beating him up anymore. He beat him every round.”

Froch says he’s open to Groves rematch if fans, trainer and promoter want it

By James Slater

Carl Froch, who retained his WBA and IBF super-middleweight titles via a controversial 9th-round stoppage over a highly dangerous and highly skilled George Groves, has spoken about the possibility of a rematch. Fans everywhere are almost certainly going to all but demand a return for two reasons: the great action last night’s fight provided and the premature nature of the referee’s stoppage.

Speaking with Sky Sports News today, Froch, 32-2-(23) said he will give the fans what they want as long as his trainer, Rob McCracken and his promoter, Eddie Hearn agree with the idea of a rematch.

“I’m happy to honour the crowd, fans and George Groves with a rematch if my trainer and promoter both agree,” Froch said. “I don’t swerve or duck anybody. If George wants a rematch and it makes sense, then of course we’ll get it on. It’s not my decision.” (more…)

Pacquiao’s victory through the eyes of Leyte typhoon victims

By Chito Yu Katangkatang

Jaro, Leyte, Philippines – “HOMELESS BUT NOT HOPELESS.” This statement reflects the character of resiliency by citizens of typhoon stricken Leyte. And that Ray of Hope was set aglow by the sensational victory of their boxing idol and hero Manny Pacquiao. In my little town of Jaro, people flocked to a local store with a portable generator. It was the only place with a TV and people took joy of still seeing their idol fight via delayed telecast on local channel GMA7.

They took break from fixing the roofs of their homes. They endured the scorching heat of the noon sun. They crowded along the streets while standing during the whole duration of the fight. They forgot the problems brought by the wrath of super typhoon Yolanda. Just like any other Pacquiao fight, it was a special day for everyone. (more…)

After two straight losses, welterweight superstar Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) rebounded with a dominating twelve round unanimous decision over former world champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (31-1-1, 23 KOs) on Saturday night before 13,101 at the sold out Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena in Macao, China.

There were good exchanges in rounds one and two with the faster Pacman getting the better of it. Pacquiao began moving more in round three and took control of the fight, landing hard shots while Rios stalked him. By round seven Rios was cut over both eyes as Pacquiao continued his assault. Rios was outworked in every round and he simply couldn’t solve Pacquiao’s style. Pacman was content to punish Rios for all twelve rounds, winning by scores of 120-108, 119-109, 118-110.

Undefeated IBF featherweight champion Evgeny Gradovich (18-0, 9 KOs) successfully defended his title in a rematch against the man he dethroned, Billy Dib (36-3, 21 KOs). Gradovich was relentless as he pressured Dib. The Aussie tried boxing, brawling, turning southpaw without success. Gradovich scored a knockdown in round six and got the win in round nine when Dib’s corner asked referee Alan Huggins to stop the fight. Time was 1:10.

Unbeaten heavyweight contender Andy Ruiz, Jr. (21-0, 15 KOs) won when Tor Hamer (21-3, 14 KOs) quit at the beginning of round four. Hamer got off to a good start, hitting Ruiz with many clean shots in rounds one and two. Ruiz, however, upped the pressure in round three and Hamer chose to remain on his stool. (more…)

Froch gets controversial ninth round stoppage over Groves; Quigg destroys Silva

In a highly anticipated grudge match, IBF and WBA super middleweight champion Carl “The Cobra” Froch (32-2, 23 KOs) scored a controversial, come from behind ninth round TKO over previously unbeaten George “The Saint” Groves (19-1, 15 KOs) on Saturday night at the Phones 4u Arena (formerly known as the M.E.N Arena) in Manchester, England.

Groves dropped Froch with a huge right hand in round one and Froch was in big trouble. Groves continued to connect with his right hand in round two. Froch started to connect in round three, cutting Groves over the left eye. Groves continued to push Froch around the ring in the fourth. Froch might have edged the fifth round, but Froch was rocked again by multiple right hands in round six. A desperate Froch did everything he could to rough up Groves in the eighth, getting several warnings from referee Howard Foster. Froch finally hurt Groves in round nine and the bout was quickly waved off by Foster. Groves complained bitterly. At the time of the stoppage, Groves was ahead 78-73, 76-75, 76-75. Official time was 1:33.

“It was a fair enough stoppage,” Froch told Sky Sports. “I felt I had a couple more free shots on him and I was lining him up for the uppercut. He was struggling, that last one or two shots can do great damage in this sport…the referee has to make a split-second decision. It’s the referee’s decision. I don’t have any sympathy for him [Groves], you have to put yourself in the referee’s hands.”

WBA super Bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (27-0-2, 20 KOs) destroyed Diego Silva (29-3-4, 1 5 KOs) in two rounds t0 retain his world title. Quigg dropped Silva in round two with a body shot, then laid him out with a right hook, no count needed. Time was 1:41. Impressive performance for Quigg. (more…)

Pacquiao-Rios: Speed versus toughness

By Graham Houston


Eleven months after crashing face-first to the canvas against Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas, Manny Pacquiao is back in the ring tonight, meeting Brandon Rios in a 12-round welterweight fight in the Chinese Special Administrative Region of Macau, with TV coverage on HBO PPV in the U.S. and BoxNation in the U.K. The fight takes place on Sunday morning in China to allow for peak-hour TV viewing in the U.S., as happened when Ali met Frazier in the Thrilla in Manila.

Pacquiao is the clear betting favourite, and I’m expecting him to win this fight. Bob Arum’s Top Rank organisation promotes both men, but Pacquiao is the big moneymaker and this match hasn’t been made to get him knocked off.

Rios is in many ways the perfect opponent. He is tough and game and always comes forward, so the fight should be entertaining. However, Rios is rather slow, and he’s hittable. Also, Rios is moving up in weight from 140 pounds whereas Pacquiao has been boxing at 147 pounds for the past three years. Although Pacquiao is seven years the older man at the age of 34 he still looks speedy and sharp in video footage from his training base in the Philippines. I see Pacquiao as having a clear speed advantage in the fight, both in foot speed and in hand speed. (more…)
