Zbik-Gevor presser

Photos by Universum

Unbeaten WBC interim middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik (29-0, 10 KOs) faced off off with challenger Khoren Gevor (31-4, 16 KOs) at a press conference to announce their July 17 world title clash in Schwerin, Germany. Zbik and Gevor previously trained together for five years under the guidance to legendary trainer Fritz Sdunek at the Universum Gym in Hamburg. However, Sdunek is now working exclusively with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, so both fighters now have different trainers.

Zbik is now fully trained by Artur Grigorian and will again be walking in the pawprints of Dariusz “Tiger” Michalczewski , setting up his training camp in Zakopane, Poland. Two-time world title challenger Gevor is now training under Dutchman Roland Germerts in Amsterdam. (more…)

Erik Morales clarifies status

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican ring legend Érik “El Terrible” Morales has declared that he’ll continue to be independent as as a boxer under the banner of his company Box Latino. However, Morales did confirm a business relationship with Golden Boy Promotions and Oscar De la Hoya that will consist of him offering his boxers for GBP cards as well as the possibility of fighting in some GBP-promoted mega boxing events in the USA or Mexico. “I am not with Golden Boy,” said Morales. “At this point in my career it doesn’t interest me to sign with any company. We are going to work together, but independently. It’s very different to work with Golden Boy, rather than for Golden Boy.” Morales’ next opponent is GBP prospect Vicente Escobedo on July 17 at the Estadio Caliente in Tijuana, Baja California.

Further changes at the IBF to report. “I was just voted off the board and out of the presidency by the IBF Board of Directors,” informs longtime IBF President Marian Muhammad. “Daryl Peoples, along with attorney Linda Torres and board member Aaron Kizer.

Green: Ward not a real warrior

When Allan Green (29-1, 20 KOs), faces Andre Ward (20-0, 13 KOs) on Saturday, June 19th for the World Boxing Association (WBA) title during Group Stage 2 of the Super Six World Boxing Classic on SHOWTIME® he certainly won’t lack in confidence. Green, 30, from Tulsa, Okla., has won six consecutive fights thanks to power in both fists, and says he wants to send a message to everyone in the tournament, starting with Ward.
 
“I respect Andre as a fighter,” Green said. “He’s very clever with good boxing skills and I’ve complimented his victory over Mikkel Kessler, but it’s not in his DNA to go deep in the waters and do battle like a real warrior. I’ve studied Andre’s fights long before I knew I was going to fight him in the tournament because he’s in my weight division. If you really watch his fights, he never goes blow-to-blow with another fighter. He will fight for 15-20 seconds with the jab, then he will grab, hold and push away. That’s the way he fights, and you can forget about him trying to do any inside fighting. He has a weak chin; I know it, he knows it, and everybody else knows it.” (more…)

Spinks-Bundrage Update

Adding intrigue to Cory Spinks’ defense of his IBF junior middleweight crown in St. Louis on June 12 against IBF mandatory challenger Cornelius Bundrage is the fact that Bundrage will be trained for the first time by International Boxing Hall of Fame member Emanuel Steward while Spinks’ new trainer is former two-time world champion James “Buddy” McGirt.

Maybe the most interesting fact of all is that the globe-trotting Steward—who may be best known now for his longtime role as a boxing analyst for HBO Sports—will be making his first visit to the Gateway City. “Believe it or not, I’ve never stepped foot in the city other than making a connection at the airport,” Steward said. “The closest I’ve ever been to St. Louis is drinking a Bud Light, my favorite beer. I’m looking forward to seeing the Gateway Arch, which is something I have always wanted to see.” (more…)

Vitali warns David Haye

By Karl Freitag

Although WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (39-2, 37 KOs) is focused on defending his world title against Euro champion Albert Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27 KOs) on Saturday night, he also had a chilling message for WBA titleholder David Haye on Monday.

“I want to fight David Haye very much,” said Vitali. “Wladimir wants to fight against him also. I want to fight David Haye because he has the WBA world title. Wladimir wants to fight him because it’s personal. Wladimir says he’s not interested in his title. David Haye touched him so deeply that Wladimir wants to shut his mouth in the ring.

“David Haye understands the fact that the Klitschko brothers will be the end of his career,” he continued. “The fight against me will be much shorter than against Wladimir because Wladimir will beat him badly all twelve rounds and then knock him out. I will give him a much easier proposal. I’ll knock him out in three, maximum four rounds!” (more…)

Zanfer Boxing

In just his first day of sparring sessions, triple world champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce (54-6-1, 41 KOs) was cut on his right eyebrow and according to the medical diagnosis it will be practically impossible for him to be ready to fight on June 26 in San Antonio, Texas against WBO bantamweight champion Eric Morel.
