Looks like former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (36-2, 32 KOs) will return against unbeaten, but unknown Texan Alfonso Lopez (21-0, 16 KOs) on the undercard of the May 7 Pacquiao-Mosley PPV clash in Las Vegas. Pavlik’s trainer Jack Lowe confirmed to the Youngstown Vindicator that Kelly’s handlers have approved Lopez to be his first foe since losing his title to Sergio Martinez 11 months ago. In the interim, Pavlik spent some time in rehab to deal with a drinking problem, but he’s now rearing to go.

Judah-Mabuza Presser

Zab “Super” Judah and Kaizer Mabuza faced off today in advance of their IBF junior welterweight title clash on Saturday night at the Prudential Center’s AmeriHealth Pavilion in Newark, NJ.

Zab Judah: “Pernell has been a great influence. I think we are going to Def Comedy Jam after this! Not only has Pernell Whitaker brought great skills to me, but he tweaked my whole world. He also brought humor, entertainment and kept the camp happy. He brought a lot of excitement, joy and fun. We had a great training camp in Las Vegas. We trained very, very hard for this fight. He came in for a six weeks of training camp, but I’d been training myself long before that. I kind of skipped Christmas and New Years and focused on Kaizer Mabuza. I kept my mind focused on the plan. I mean, I’m ready.” (more…)

Klitschko-Haye agreement

Wladimir says July 2 date is agreed on

By Alexey “Oscar” Potapov

IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs) and WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (25-1, 23 KOs) have reached a preliminary agreement for a unification clash on July 2. The fight will take place in England or Germany. Wladimir spoke Fightnews.com about the news in Kiev, Ukraine during a master-class for talented children participating in the “Sports Ukraine Build Together” program.

“We have never so far not entered into negotiations with the team of Haye. David for several years has connected his name with Klitschko. This is what he gets. He is an excellent promoter, but in the ring you’ll see what kind of fighter he is. The contract is not signed yet, but we already have something important – a preliminary agreement on July 2. By the end of 2011, all the titles in the heavyweight divison will be mine and Vitali’s. The fight will be in Europe. We are both Europeans and I think that there will be more interest in the Klitschko-Haye in Europe than in the U.S.A. We will divide the money fifty-fifty.”

On April 30th, Wladimir Klitschko will defend against Dereck Chisora (14-0, 9 KOs) in Mannheim, Germany at the SAP-Arena.

Sergio Martinez Quick Quotes

"I'm going to win by knockout"

By Mariano A. Agmi

On facing Sergei Dzinziruk: “I don’t want easy fights – this year I want to be recognized as the best fighter pound for pound and since Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao won’t face me, Sergei Dzinziruk is the best challenge for me right now. Dzinziruk is a gifted technical fighter. He’s an intelligent counterpuncher, so I know he will come to box intelligently and wait for me to make a mistake.”

“Dzinziruk is a great fighter that the public does not know. Unfortunately, the public will not see the best Dzinziruk on March 12 because I’m coming to win in the best manner, which is by knockout. I think I’ll dictate the pace of this fight because I’m the champion and also the better fighter. I’m punching so hard in training camp that I think it’s likely I’ll win by knockout.”

On Dzinziruk saying that there is nothing special about Martinez: “I’m surprised he said that, I think I have something [special]. I hope that he’s overconfident, because if he is, he’ll be surprised on March 12th. This training camp has probably been the best and hardest of my career. I’m sparring with both current and former world champions, one of which is former two time world champion Daniel Santos.”

On his difficulty in finding opponents: “It’s a shame that it’s so hard for me to find opponents in my weight class, although I take it as a compliment because it is a result of how well I’ve performed in the ring. If Miguel Cotto and I both win on March 12, I think a fight with Cotto would be great for us, for the fans, and for boxing later this year.”

Although a month away from his rematch against WBO junior flyweight champion Giovani Segura, former champion Ivan “Iron Boy” Calderon is training hard and weighed in at 116.5 pounds today during a 30 day pre weigh in by the Puerto Rico Boxing Commission. Calderón (34-1-1, 6 KOs) and Segura (26-1-1, 22 KOs) will fight next April 2 at the Estadio 20 de Noviembre in Campeche, Mexico, in a rematch of their first bout on August 28, 2010, a bout that won Segura by TKO, but a fight that was a candidate for the Fight of the Year award. During the pre weigh in Calderon had a maximum of 124.2 pound limit, but the former 105 and 108 pounds champion weighed in 116.5

“I’m always near my weight for the fights, but I’m training too hard for Segura and working in some new and old things. I’m working now for more strength for Segura and his weight on the bout,” Calderon said from the Wilfredo Gomez Arena Gym in Guaynabo. more photos

Reid ready for Prizefighter

Former WBC super middleweight champion Robin Reid came through his first fight in over three years on Saturday night to continue his preparation for Prizefighter Super-Middleweights II at Liverpool’s Olympia on Wednesday 23 March. The 40 year-old claimed a points decision against Jamie Ambler at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton, with the ‘Grim Reaper’ tasting action for the first time since losing a British title fight against Carl Froch in November 2007.

Reid was heavily linked with a spot in the line-up of the last event – the Light-Heavyweights II in February – and after conversations with Matchroom Sport’s managing director Eddie Hearn, he decided that he wanted to get back into action when the 17th edition of the eight-man, one-night tournaments is staged at the Liverpool Olympia.

Green contemplates retirement

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing
Photo: Tim Barry

Former WBA light heavyweight champion Danny Green is contemplating retirement as he battles to recapture full fitness following recent surgery to remove his appendix. Green was operated on in January to remove a large absess from his appendix. “I’ve just got to wait and see how my body holds up,” Green said.”The desire to fight is there but I really don’t know whether I’ll be able to. The doctors have left it up to me. They’ve advised me to just see how I feel and really the ball’s in my court. If I can go on I’d like to, if I can’t, well then I’m a realist. I realize that it wouldn’t be easy to just walk away from it but I’ll have to do what my body’s telling me to do. I’m not going to make any stupid decisions. I’ve been doing a little bit of work in the gym but I honestly don’t know the immediate future of my boxing career …”

Green’s last fight was on November 17, when he defeated American BJ Flores in a hard-fought unanimous points win in Perth. Green currently holds IBO cruiserweight title.
