Green-Siaca Presser

Photo: Craig Watt

By Craig Watt

IBO Cruiserweight champion Danny Green (28-3, 25 KO’s) and challenger Manny Siaca (22-6, 19 KO’s) met today at the final press conference in Kings Park, Perth, Western Australia. Both fighters were confident of victory but the 37 year old “Green Machine” was reflective on what happened to Roy Jones Jr when they met in December at the Acer Arena. He stated, “I will not be taking Manny Siaca lightly and will not make the same mistake Roy Jones made with me. He underestimated me because he was looking forward to his next fight with Bernard Hopkins and was distracted and totally under estimated me. The result was he got knocked out. I cannot fall into that trap and I am totally focussed on defeating Siaca in front of all my fans in Perth. I will not be thinking about the next fight until I have defeated my challenger and that is all that is on my mind.” Click here for more, plus more photos.

It’s not often that “Anderson Silva” and “embarrassed” find themselves in the same sentence.

But after last night’s performance, that’s exactly how UFC president Dana White described the bout. In his eleventh straight Octagon victory, Anderson Silva (26-4) retained his middle weight title in a lackluster decision win over Brazilian jiu-jitsu phenom Demian Maia (12-2) . . .

Dimitrenko: I’m ready for Audley

Sascha is Harrison's mandatory challenger

www.filmograf.de

Universum heavyweight Alexander “Sascha” Dimitrenko (29-1, 19 KOs) is looking forward to getting a crack at European champion Audley “A-Force” Harrison. Dimitrenko was already named the official EBU challenger prior to Harrison’s bout with Michael Sprott for the vacant belt, a bout that ended with a spectacular twelfth round come-from-behind knockout by Harrison. “I followed the fight live on the Internet and have to say that it was a very high level bout. Both had nothing else to give. A very interesting fight for me. Harrison was clearly behind on points. He could only win by KO and that he actually did it was very impressive. He’ll be a good opponent for me. I’m look forward to a great fight. I think I can keep Harrison in check.” (more…)

Briggs begins another comeback

By David Finger

Ed Mulholland

Usually when former heavyweight champion announces he is making a comeback, fans assume the worst. But such is the current state of the heavyweight division that most fans are already predicting a world title fight for former WBO heavyweight champion Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs (48-5-1, 42 KOs). Or perhaps it’s because Briggs has proven his critics wrong so many times in the past that it’s just safer not to bet against him. His comeback begins this Tuesday when he faces the Cuban brawler Rafael Pedro (20-8-1, 14 KOs) at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. (More)

Ramos wins Louisiana title

By Damien St. Pierre

A disappointing end to an exciting bout left the sold out crowd at the Hilton Towers in Lafayette, Louisiana wanting more as the man they came to see suffered his first defeat as a professional, although in a odd manner. Sao Paulo, Brazil native Juliano Ramos captured the Louisiana state light middleweight championship this past Saturday night without breaking a sweat. His opponent hometown prizefighter Jarred “Lethal Weapon” LeBlanc (12-1) came out with his usual aggressive style and put Ramos’ back to the ropes as LeBlanc tried to step to the side he fell to the canvas in obvious pain. LeBlanc would try to get back to his feet but was unable to do so. Referee Larry Berger called in the ringside doctor and he would eventually deem LeBlanc unable to continue. The official time was 1:55 into the opening round. With the win Ramos moves his record to 16-3. A rematch has already been discussed by both teams. (more…)

Evans crushes Chule

By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Rising Philly featherweight prospect, “Pretty Boy” Coy Evans (8-0-1, 2KO’s) looked spectacular on Friday night at the Arena in South Philadelphia PA, scoring a destructive third round knockout of experienced Kenyan, Morris Chule (11-11-2, 8KO’s) in the eight round main event of the evening. Unfortunately on the undercard, several bouts fell out at the last moment so fans were unable to see the likes of undefeated middleweight prospect Derrick Webster (5-0, 4KO’s) and the ever popular Olivia “The Great” Fonseca (3-2-2, 2KO’s). However, former amateur standout Keenan Smith stepped in admirably in scoring a one sided four round unanimous decision over fellow Philly super featherweight, Luis “Smurf” Esquilin (1-4-1), in his professional debut. The four bout card was promoted by Greg Robinson in association with the River Edge Beverage Company. (more…)

Anderson “The Spider” Silva retained his title, defeating Demian Maia via unanimous decision. The uneventful contest, which drew boos from the crowd, also drew a post-fight apology from Silva.  “I apologize to everybody. I don’t know what got into me,” he said.

Frankie Edgar found an “Answer” for “The Proidigy,” snaring the UFC lightweight title from BJ Penn via unanimous decision. The bout was largely waged on the feet as the crafty Edgar used head movement and fast feet to keep the previously unstoppable Penn off balance. The judges scored the bout 50-45, 48-47 and 49-46.

I can get better. I’d been off a long time and I know I can get better. I want to come back very soon.” Botha remarked, “Evander is a great fighter. He capitalized on my mistakes. I thought I had him going early. I have to go home and sit down with my team.” More results…

WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (26-0, 20 KOs) scored an eighth round TKO over former WBO champ Carlos Quintana (27-3, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. Berto was too fast and strong for the game Quintana and referee Tommy Kimmons waved it off after a sustained barrage by Berto. Time was 2:16. Kimmons deducted a point from Quintana in round three for a rabbit punch. The card was billed as “Fighting for Haiti” with a portion of the proceeds from tickets sold going to benefit those affected by the recent earthquake in Berto’s native Haiti.
