Kayode gearing up for WBA title clash

World Boxing Association number-five ranked heavyweight, undefeated Lateef “Power” Kayode (20-0, 16 KOs) has been working hard preparing for his WBA interim heavyweight championship bout against fellow undefeated contender Luis Ortiz ((21-0, 18 KOs) on September 11 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The resident of Hollywood, California and native of Lagos, Nigeria is training at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood under the watchful eye of Hall of Fame trainer, Freddie Roach.

Despite moving up from cruiserweight, Kayode is not at all intimidated by Ortiz who will have close to a three-inch and 20-plus pound weight advantage.

“He is strong and big. I know that and it doesn’t concern me at all. I spar a lot of big guys out here and I am used to it. I have been doing my job as I know this is a big opportunity. This fight will give me a heavyweight title belt and that will only lead me into bigger fights…They say nobody wants to fight Ortiz. Well I am not scared and I will be there. I am not scared of anybody.” (more…)

IBF #1 flyweight ranked, McWilliams Arroyo (15-1, 13 KOs), will travel to Thailand on September 2, for his fight against the IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng (13-0, 5 KOs). The clash is to be held on September 10, at the Liptapanlop Hall in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, in a Jimmy’s Boxing presentation.

“We could coordinate everything related to McWilliams trip for September 2, because the date to travel was scheduled to arrive just four days before the fight. But now he has more time before the fight in Thailand,” said Peter Rivera, PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) Vice-President. “It will be a long journey to Thailand, like 29 hours, but we trust in the experience McWilliams has.

Our thanks go to the International Boxing Federation (IBF) and our partners RTL and o2 World Hamburg, who both enabled the new fight date in the originally planned arena,” Klitschko manager Bernd Bönte said.

“I am delighted that the title defense can still take place in Hamburg, the atmosphere here is always gigantic. Due to the injury, I am taking a break from training now and will then start again with the preparation for the fight against Kubrat Pulev,” Wladimir Klitschko said. (more…)

Zhakiyanov faces Edisherashvili Sept 10

Bantamweight powerhouse Zhanat Zhakiyanov will face Georgia’s unbeaten Gagi Edisherashvili at the Moulin Rouge Club in Minsk, Belarus on September 10. Zhakiyanov is the reigning European champion but will this time contest the WBC’s vacant EPBC crown. As he is already ranked at number two in the world, victory should push the Kazakhstani puncher closer to a clash with current WBC ruler Shinsuke Yamanaka.

“As Zhanat is so close to a world title fight we could have looked for an easier fight that this, but I think he performs at his best when he’s given a test,” said Zhakiyanov’s trainer and promoter Ricky Hatton. “Although this Georgian might not be very well known, he’s unbeaten in seven fights and anyone who doesn’t know how to lose is always dangerous.”

Yes Floyd Mayweather can read

By Kelly Swanson

I have worked with Floyd Mayweather since 2005 and feel it is only right that I come to his defense. The unfair reports that Floyd cannot read, which have been posted on social media by various individuals and reported by certain media outlets, are simply not true. The proof is in the pudding. This video that was recorded by Floyd for promotional purposes (which included taping a spot for a CBS College Football game and a spot promoting his fight against Marcos Maidana). I believe it is extremely unfair for people to make claims against others that are unfounded and hence, filled with malice. Help me right this wrong and report “the rest of this story” with these facts.

Maidana rips into Floyd: Don’t be a little b*tch

Former world champion Marcos Maidana ripped into current WBC/WBA welterweight and super welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather during an international media conference call in advance of their PPV title clash on September 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Marcos Maidana: For the second fight he can come out differently, have a different game plan. I’m not gonna change. I’m gonna come and I’m gonna put the pressure on and I’m going to try to force him to fight. I’m hoping that he doesn’t start running like a little b*tch all over the ring.

The way to counter his defense moves, the shoulder rolls, and the arms and all that is I’m going to hit him there. I’m gonna hit him in the shoulder, I’m gonna hit him in the arms, and come the eighth or ninth rounds he’s going to be so tired from all the punches that he’s not going to be able to defend himself anymore.

I’m preparing for anything. I hope that he stands and fights but if he’s going to run like a little b*tch, I’m going to have to chase him.

It doesn’t bother me [that Floyd thinks he's a dirty fighter]. There’s things he does in there, as well. It’s better for him to stop crying and just fight.

I’m going to do my job. I’m going to come and fight. I want him to come and fight. To stand and fight like a man. Don’t be a little b*tch like a woman running around. Fight like a man. Stand and fight like a man!

Interview: WBO President Paco Valcarcel

Photo: David Finger

Photo: David Finger

By David Finger

For over 18 years, WBO President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel took a very different approach to boxing than many other people in the sport of boxing. He was very much a “fly under the radar” sort of executive and through his management the WBO seemed keen on avoiding the controversy and the scandals that at times plagued the sport, with the WBO even sporting an undefeated record in litigation over the course of over 25 years. The WBO President didn’t seem like the type to relish the spotlight or to point fingers, which makes this year so…interesting.

It may not capture the same amount of attention as Floyd Mayweather’s very public feud with rapper 50 Cent, but a recent war of words has emerged between the WBO and the other sanctioning organizations (in particular the WBC) that has many boxing insiders wondering if the status quo has just been shot out of the water. Valcarcel is no longer content to sit back and take the quiet approach: he is making it abundantly clear what he thinks about the proliferation of champions and championship belts in the WBA and WBC and he is taking to social media to make his case.

It all started in June, when the WBC hosted a Boxing Summit in Cancun, a rare opportunity for the presidents of all of the sanctioning organizations to come together to discuss several proposed changes in the sport, including things like PED testing and the standardization of division names. Notably absent was Valcarcel, who then went on social media to vent his frustration over something that wasn’t up for discussion: the proliferation of lesser belts like the WBC Silver Championship belt.

Mayweather-Maidana 2 PPV to start an hour earlier than standard time

In an innovative move, Showtime Sports, Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions have scheduled the “Mayhem: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2” pay-per-view event to start at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT instead of the traditional 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.

“Pay-per-view boxing events have changed, and we think it’s time the scheduling changed too,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Showtime Sports. “Along with our partners at Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions, we have been presenting compelling four-fight cards with multiple 12-round world championship bouts. As a result, we’ve seen the start of the main event coming later and later into the night which is not an ideal viewing experience for viewers in the Eastern and Central time zones.

Kubrat Pulev: I am trying to keep calm

By Ognian Georgiev/Bulgaria Today

IBF official heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev (20, 11 KOs) wasn’t the happiest man on earth when he learned about Wladimir Klitschko’s (62-3, 52 KOs) injury. The WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO heavyweight champion suffered torn muscle fibre in his left biceps during a Friday training session. The fight, set for September 6 at O2 World in Hamburg, Germany, will be postponed until November. “God sees and doesn’t forget,” Pulev was quoted by Bulgarian newspaper Presa. “I am trying to keep calm and to keep the good manners. I was ready and couldn’t wait for the fight. Now I will clench my teeth, because there isn’t a force to stop me finishing what I started.”

Pulev’s promoter Sauerland rejected the speculation in some medias about a possible repeat of the Wladimir Klitschko vs. Dereck Chisora saga at the end of 2010 and beginning of 2011. The Ukrainian pulled out of the scheduled world championships bout just three days before the event. The fight was rescheduled for a new date, but later was canceled. (more…)
