Shumenov-Campillo Update!

By Alexey Sukachev and Leonid Yuryev

As it was previously announced by Fightnews, Kazakh light heavyweight marvel Beibut Shumenov (8-0, 6 KOs) will face the reigning WBA champion Gabriel Campillo (18-2-1, 6 KOs) for his title on August 15 in Kazakhstan. It was confirmed today by the sources at KZ Event Productions that this fight will land in Astana, the capital of the state. Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev is invited to visit the show and he will most probably be in attendance for this match-up. WBA #7 (as well as the WBO #9 and the WBC #15) Shumenov will try to become the third ever world champion from Kazakhstan, following former cruiserweight star Vassily Jirov (IBF champion in 1999-2003) and super featherweight Anatoly Alexandrov (WBO titlist in 1998-1999). Should he be victorious in his ninth fight as a pro the next month, Beibut will also set a world record in his weight class for winning the title in a minimal number of bouts. The pro debut of former amateur standout Abzal Adambaev (at super featherweight limit) is expected in undercard in addition to previously announced fights.

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Australian heavyweight champion John Hopoate (12-3, 11 KOs) dominated Bob Mirovic (29-21-2, 20 KOs) in a rematch over ten rounds at the AIS arena, Canberra, ACT, Australia on Thursday. The powerful Hopoate, 253lbs, controlled the action in all the rounds as he bulldozed the 6.5″ Mirovic, 264 lbs, and consistently connected with hard head and body shots that visibly hurt the veteran. A right hand to the head in round seven staggered Mirovic but he remained upright and in round eight Big Bob complained to the referee Brian McMahon that Hoppa was trying to break his arm in the clinches. In their first fight in 2008 Mirovic’s arm was broken. Both fighters were fatigued in rounds nine and ten and at the conclusion Hopoate was declared the winner by scores Anthony Shipley 99-90, Pat Oconnell 97-94, Bernie McMahon 99-91.

Reports out of Mexico City, where five-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is back in training for his scheduled September 19 PPV clash against Floyd Mayweather (Mayweather vs. Marquez “Number One/Numero Uno”), confirm that Marquez is bigger, stronger and punching “to the body” harder than ever as he pushes his training regime to new heights in preparation for his ultimate challenge against Mayweather. Eyewitnesses say it’s evident that not only is Marquez bigger, but his training includes a special focus on body work and technique as he looks to defeat the undefeated Mayweather, a six-time world champion in five weight divisions. “I know where he’s been hurt and I’m going for it,” said Marquez. “He is vulnerable now and I will take advantage of his weakness with a body attack that emphasizes two things-the right and the left.” For more details and photos click here…

Wladimir: Haye unprofessional!

Wladimir Klitschko has ripped David Haye and his team for pulling out of a September 12 fight against his brother Vitali Klitschko in Frankfurt. “Already during the negotiations for my June fight, we realized quickly that Haye and Booth are very unprofessional. Booth might be a good trainer but as a manager he is simply incompetent. David always had a big mouth and tried to offend us with ridiculous self-made t shirts. But when it comes up to step into the ring and show what he’s got, he runs away. He even admits that fighting Valuev is the easier way. For me Haye is a little, inexperienced kid who is afraid of his own courage. Doubtless, my brother would have knocked him out within the first four rounds.” (more…)
