Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez back in action

Undefeated Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez (19-0, 13 KOs) will make his first appearance of 2016 in the ring on the February 5 Estrella TV card against Silverto “Chamaco III” Ortiz (29-16, 15 KOs) of Chicxulub, Yucatan, Mexico’s. Gomez is scheduled to participate in a 10-round co-main event headlined by former World Champion Randy “El Matador” Caballero (22-0, 13 KOs) against Ruben Garcia (15-1-1, 6 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico in a 10-round super bantamweight bout, from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.

In addition, former eight-time world champion in three weight divisions Sugar Shane Mosley will be in attendance to host a meet and greet with fans at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino Special Events Center from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Fans with tickets to the fight will have an opportunity meet and interact with Mosley before the Estrella TV live broadcast begins.

Lucas Browne: Williams and Benn have got me in the shape of my life

Heavyweight Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne says he’s fitter than ever and ready to make history. The 36-year-old Australia aims to become his nation’s first ever world heavyweight champion when he squares off with WBA kingpin Ruslan Chagaev in Grozny, Chechnya on March 5. Browne has been training like a demon with head coach Rodney Williams and British legend Nigel Benn for a number of weeks and believes he will be a whole new animal come fight night. “My camp has been unreal. We’ve been in the gym for over six weeks and there’s still over seven weeks to go so people are going to get a shock when they see me in the ring,” he said.

“I’m lighter now and I’m working on my footwork every day with Rodney so I think people are going to be surprised at how agile I’ve become. My power is still there, but I’m slipping better and I’ve learned that I don’t need to stand directly in front of an opponent to knock them out. (more…)

Former IBF featherweight champion Evgeny Gradovich (21-1-1, 9 KOs) struggled a ten round majority decision over Jesus Galicia (13-9-1, 8 KOs) on Saturday in Valenciana, Spain.

The house of former world champion Fernando “Kochulito” Montiel is located near the house where Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was recaptured. According to Montiel, he and his family were awakened by gunfire when authorities converged on “El Chapo.” Later marines searched Montiel’s house and found that one of Guzman’s men had broken in and was hiding there.

DiBella forecasts 2016 boxing

By Matt Richardson
Photos: Emily Harney

Lou DiBella had an interesting 2015.

The New York-based boxing promoter continued to mine new talent and promote shows, small and large, throughout the country. He was also closely involved with the expansion of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) and the return of boxing to network television. The former Senior Vice President of HBO Sports has always been a candid observer of the “The Sweet Science” and, as such, his perspective on the sport as it enters 2016 is an important one.

“I think 2015 was an interesting year,” he told Fightnews last week. “I wouldn’t say it was a bad year. With PBC there was more boxing on TV than ever before. Even though it wasn’t a great fight people got the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. It happened. That was the good news and the bad news. I think probably more people saw boxing in 2015 than have seen a boxing match in years. So, just from a standpoint of exposure, I think that there was a lot of it.”

“As is usually the case,” he continued, “it was a mixed bag. It could get better but I think that there were some reasons to be positive. Boxing got more attention in 2015 than it’s gotten for many years previously and had Mayweather-Pacquiao been a great fight and everything else just stayed the way it was I think we’d be talking about what an amazing year it was. And by the way, there were a lot of great fights and then there were some not so great fights. But, overall I think it was a positive year and I think had the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight in the ring been as big of an event as it was outside of the ring then I think we would be talking in superlatives right now even with the same set of facts.” (more…)

WBA: Quigg-Frampton winner must face Rigondeaux

On January 7, the WBA Championships Committee issued a Resolution titled Clarification of the super bantamweight division, which concerns the status of Guillermo Rigondeaux, Scott Quigg, and Carl Frampton. Rigondeaux was designated “champion in recess” after managerial/promotional disputes kept him from defending his title. According to WBA President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, “Rigondeaux shall come out of recess and face the winner of the February 27 unification bout between WBA champion Scott Quigg and IBF champion Carl Frampton. The winner of said bout, or Quigg if the fight is ruled a draw, must fight Rigondeaux on or before July 27, 2016.”

If a purse bid is necessary for Rigondeaux/Quigg or Rigondeaux/Frampton, the purse bid split will be 55% to Rigondeaux and 45% to Quigg or Frampton. If it appears no agreement can be reached by the parties involved, either side may request a purse bid.

Wallisch decisions Bacurin, Krasniqi tops Ermis

WBO #11 heavyweight Michael Wallisch (16-0, 10 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over late sub Ivica Bacurin (23-9-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Maritim Hotel in Berlin, Germany. Wallisch mostly stalked his smaller foe, who was often in survival mode. Bacurin was deducted a point for hitting on the break in round eleven. Wallisch finally dropped Bacurin in round twelve with a big right hand. Scores were 119-106, 118-107, 120-105. Wallisch retained his WBO European heavyweight belt.

In the best fight of the night, two-time light heavyweight title challenger Robin Krasniqi (45-4, 17 KOs), now campaigning at super middleweight where he’s rated #12, scored a hard-fought eight round unanimous decision over Cagri Ermis (18-10-2, 5 KOs). Scores were 77-76, 78-76 and 77-75. Krasniqi is now taking aim at his next title fight.

Also, unbeaten middleweight Jan Meiser (10-0-1, 5 KOs) and Szabolcs Szabo (10-2-2, 4 KOs) battled to an eight round majority draw. Scores were 95-95, 97-93, 95-95. Meiser held onto his WBO Youth title.

Upset: De Carolis stops Feigenbutz in eleven to win vacant WBA super middleweight title

By Karl Freitag

In the first world title fight of 2016, Giovanni De Carolis (24-6, 12 KOs) scored an upset eleventh round TKO over power puncher Vincent Feigenbutz (21-2, 19 KOs) to claim the vacant WBA super middleweight championship on Saturday night at Baden Arena in Offenburg, Germany. Feigenbutz, formerly the WBA interim beltholder, won a controversial decision over De Carolis in October, but this time De Carolis outworked Feigenbutz in most rounds and a barrage of 15 unanswered De Carolis punches in round eleven prompted referee Gustavo Padilla to wave it off. Time was :32.

At the time of the stoppage, De Carolis was leading on all three scorecards, 96-94, 96-94 and 98-92. Feigenbutz, about a 5:1 favorite, wasn’t happy about the stoppage and De Carolis offered him a rubber match. Team Sauerland initially called De Carolis’ win “dirty” and vowed to protest citing a blow to the back of the head, but reportedly later backed off from that stance. The 20-year-old Feigenbutz was hoping to become the youngest German fighter to ever win a world title.

Former heavyweight title challenger Dereck Chisora (25-5, 17 KOs) scored a quick second round TKO over journeyman Andras Csomor (14-9-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night in Offenburg, Germany. It was Chisora’s third win in just over a month since signing with Team Sauerland.

Unbeaten cruiserweight Noel Gevor (20-0, 10 KOs) outworked 39-year-old former world champion Valery Brudov (42-7, 28 KOs) over ten rounds.

Fortune, Cunningham Notch Motor City Wins

Report/photos: Bob Ryder

Detroiters Willie Fortune “500” and Darryl “Peoples Choice” Cunningham scored TKO wins in the co main events on promoter Greg Ahrens’ show at the Royal Oak Music Theatre Friday night before an enthusiastic crowd who braved the cold, wet weather to take in the fistic festivities.Fortune and Jeremy Marts engaged in a free swinging contest as they let the punches fly with abandon. Middleweight Fortune was far superior but left himself open to take a few clean shots from Marts in his uninhibited attack that really kicked into high gear in the wild second round. Marts kept trying to keep Fortune at bay, but Willie was not to be denied, scoring three knockdowns in the round that brought out the automatic stoppage at 2:09 and improving his record to (21-2, 11 KO’s). Marts hailing from Ottumwa, Iowa falls to (12-21, 9 KO’s). Fortune however, did take a knee to the canvas this night as well. At the conclusion of the bout, he got down and proposed to his lady. Fortune’s winning evening continued as she said yes! Congratulations and best wishes to Willie and his future wife.

Also at middleweights, Darryl Cunningham handled Grand Rapids’ Chris Grays as he dominated the fight with excellent body work and frequent combinations. Cunningham in past bouts was often viewed as being too cautious, not throwing enough punches, but his recent fights has seen him much more aggressive, making for crowd pleasing action. He pursued Grays around the ring, landing consistently better blows. By the 2:38 mark of the fourth round Grays had enough and collapsed to the canvas without being hit, mandating referee Sam Williams to immediately halt the fight. Cunningham now (32-8, 13 KO’s), Grays (10-30, 2 KO’s). (more…)

Mayweather will be removed from WBA rankings

Future Hall-of-Famer Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26 KOs) is exceptional in many ways. Not only did he retire in September undefeated after 19 years of active duty, tying Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record in the process. But when he finally decided to hang up his gloves, he was WBA Super Champion of not one but two divisions, welterweight and super welterweight, simultaneously.

He was also welter and super welter champ of the WBC, which removed him from its rankings at their year-end convention. It was one instance where the WBC beat the WBA to the punch.

But one punch does not a fight make, except on rare occasions, and newly elected WBA President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza says that Mayweather will be removed from the rankings at the end of the month. (more…)

Charles Martin ready to be a superstar

Unbeaten heavyweight Charles Martin is confident that he has what it takes to defeat former Olympic Bronze Medalist Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov and claim the vacant IBF heavyweight title on January 16 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

“He’s never been in the ring with a fighter like me,” said Martin on a conference call with reporters this week. “I’m no Cunningham. I’m no Tor Hamer. I’m none of these guys that he fought. I’m totally a different fighter than he’s ever seen. So come fight night, I’m ready to prove it to the whole wide world. I’m ready to be that superstar. We train like superstars. If you’re going to train mediocre, you’ll be mediocre, and that’s what I see out of a lot of fighters, heavyweights, especially. But we train to be a superstar and that’s what you guys are going to see.”

Martin acknowledges that Glazkov is the best opponent he’s faced to date.

“He’s definitely a step up on paper,” stated Martin. “His resume reads well. He’s a good fighter. He’s technical, keeping his hands up and stuff like that, has a pretty nice hook. But I got to give you the ups and the downs. He’s a little guy. I’m massive, strong, powerful, elusive. He’s definitely going to be in there for the hardest fight of his life that he’ll ever have.”
