Canelo light and heavy

Update: Alvarez came back and weighed 151.4.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez weighed in at 151.8 pounds for his 154lb WBC world title match against Matthew Hatton on Saturday. Unfortunately for Alvarez, the bout against welterweight Hatton is being being fought at a 150lb catch weight (four pounds under the division limit), so he needs to drop 1.8 pounds. Hatton weighed 149.6 pounds. The Hatton camp had previously threatened to pull out if Alvarez didn’t make the weight, however the more likely scenario is he would settle for 10% of Alvarez’ purse ($35,000) in the event Canelo can’t drop the weight. Canelo would also be fined an additional 10% of his purse by the California Commission. Click here for more photos…

Report: Sanchez vs. Kampmann

Report by Brady Crytzer

In Thursday night’s main event at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, KY, Diego Sanchez worked through two swollen eyes and a bleeding mouth to defeat Martin “The Hitman” Kampmann via unanimous decision in an exciting welterweight bout.

With both fighters seeking a sense of direction in the respective careers, Sanchez and Kampmann knew that a win on Thursday may not grant them a title shot, but it would put them back in the running for a contenders fight. Sanchez had made a career being known as “The Nightmare,” but Thursday night he officially changed his nickname to “The Dream” – it was anything but that for the former lightweight title challenger.

Q&A: Tomasz Adamek

Boxing likes solitude

“I wasn’t worried when reading about the possible Wlad Klitschko-David Haye July agreement. They can and should fight; there is so much money to make for both of them and championship belts to get. I will start worrying only when, and if, Vitali loses his upcoming March 19 bout versus Odlanier Solis,” said Tomasz Adamek (43-1, 28 KOs), who has an agreement to fight one of the Klitschko brothers in September, in his native Poland. For now, Adamek is working in the old Lennox Lewis training battleground, Poconos Mountains, for his upcoming fight against Kevin McBride (35-8, 29 KOs) on April 9 in Newark’s Prudential Center.

Zbikowski confirms return

Baltimore Ravens safety Tommy Zbikowski (1-0, 1 KO) confirmed today that he will fight in the opening televised fight on the March 12 Cotto-Mayorga pay-per-view extravaganza at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Zbikowski is preparing for the fight with trainer Orlando Cuellar in Miami. Promoter Bob Arum said Top Rank will keep Zbikowski busy as long as he is available (meaning not playing football while a new collective bargaining agreement is being negotiated by the NFL and the NFL Players Association). Zbikowski was an amateur star before becoming an All-American football player at Notre Dame University. He had one pro fight before joining the NFL.

Klitschko-Haye close

“It looks better than ever before,” Haye co-promoter Kalle Sauerland told SPOX. “Both sides are showing interest, the talks are in full swing.” Both Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye have recently confirmed that a July 2 clash is a possibility. “When an agreement seemed impossible, the pressure on both Haye and Klitschko increased.

Clark’s longtime manager Pat Nelson states, “Michael now has a career mark of (6-1) as a welterweight with his lone defeat by majority decision against eventual IBF junior middle champ, Cornelius Bundrage.

Ray Beltran Jr. (23-4, 15 KOs) goes toe-to-toe with Carlos Vinan (10-8-2, 2 KOs) for the vacant USBA lightweight title this Friday in the main event of the “Warner Center War 3″ card at the Warner Center Marriott in Woodland Hills, California. Beltran, from Los Angeles, by way of Mexico, TKO’ed lightweight prospect David Torres in his last fight (January 2010) to earn a top 15 ranking in the NABO and USBA.

Vinan, from Newark, NJ by way of Ecuador, shocked former European lightweight champion Anthony Mezaache with an 8th round knockout this past July. Vinan is ranked by the IBF as the #15 contender at lightweight.

Beltran, who is a regular sparring partner for Manny Pacquaio and Amir Khan, trains out of Wildcard Boxing Club under the tutelage of Freddie Roach and former Olympian Pepe Reilly.

Sanchez decisions Kampmann

Results by Brady Crytzer

In the night’s main event Diego Sanchez defeated Martin Kampmann via unanimous decision. Kampmann, a former Danish National Kickboxing Champion, battered Sanchez badly in the first round scoring an impressive knockdown with a right cross. In the second Sanchez began to land with looping punches that stunned his taller opponent. In the third, with Sanchez badly bruised, bloodied, and swollen it was the takedowns of “The Nightmare” that appeared to have swayed the judges. Scorecards all read the same, 29-28 in favor of Sanchez. (more…)
