Spence, Cruz, Wade, Brinson Quotes

In a night of “step-up” fights from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, 2012 Olympian Errol “The Truth” Spence, Jr. (12-0, 10 KOs) will face Ronald Cruz (20-3, 15 KOs) in a 10-round welterweight bout. In the co-feature, Dominic “Lights Out” Wade (15-0, 11 KOs) meets Nick “The Machine Gun” Brinson (16-1-2, 6 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight clash.

Errol Spence: “This is a 10-rounder, so I’m just doing a lot more rounds of sparring now, like 10 or 12 rounds. I think Ronald Cruz is a good, durable boxer. He comes forward with his hands up, tries to counter a little bit. But I fight guys like that all the time, I spar guys like that all the time. I won’t have to look for him because he’s going to be right there in front of me. I’ll just counter off his shots and look for openings.”

Ronald Cruz: “I’ve got a good trainer that has shown me all the tricks to beat a southpaw, so it’s no big deal – I actually like it better. Not only my right hand, but my left hook works better on a southpaw. He’s young, he’s obviously hungry and he’s on his way to being a world champion. I just feel they took this fight at the wrong time. It’s too soon, too early for him.”

Dominic Wade: “I don’t think too highly of him. He just throws those little punches in bunches, but they are all wild. I plan on keeping it short and simple.”

Nick Brinson: “…there are a lot of things he doesn’t do that I do well. He’s the favored fighter and I don’t want to take anything from him because I want all the credit when I beat him.”

Showtime will televise.

Gamboa, Crawford Quick Quotes

By Karl Freitag

Undefeated world champions Terence Crawford and Yuriorkis Gamboa, both 23-0 with 16 KOs, hosted an international media conference call on Wednesday to discuss their HBO-televised world lightweight championship fight on Saturday night in Omaha, Nebraska.

Yuriorkas Gamboa: I’m very anxious to get to the fight. Throughout training camp I met all the objectives I needed for a game plan for this fight and I’m just excited to get back into the ring this Saturday.

[On Crawford’s height advantage] Just going back through my professional history, I’ve been pretty much the smaller guy in most of my fights. So I really don’t think it’s something that’s going to affect much. I know how to adjust. I know how to come with a game plan and it’s something I’ve been dealing with ever since my amateur career. I’ve always been the smaller guy.

Terence Crawford: The guys he’s probably fought and seen, I’m pretty sure that they don’t have the same style as me. They probably have similar styles, but I don’t feel there’s anyone out there with the same, exact style as me, so we’re just gonna see Saturday

[On distractions fighting in his hometown]: I don’t have none of that. No selling tickets, no shirts, no nothing, they can’t call me for nothing. So I’m not worried about the distractions around…we’ve been keeping a low profile.

Amagasa retains OPBF 126lb belt

Photo: Boxing Beat


By Joe Koizumi

Slow and steady wins the race. Slow-punching and least skillful, WBC#10/WBA#14/IBF#8/WBO#10 Hisashi Amagasa (26-4-2, 18 KOs), 126, barely kept his OPBF featherweight belt when he had a difficulty coping with a shorter and overmatched Thailander named Maxsaisai Sithsaithong (14-5, 3 KOs), 126, missed plenty of punches into the air but finally halted him at 1:51 of the eighth session on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. The more aggressive Amagasa, an elongated awkward stylist, failed to catch the intimidated and inferior challenger in every round and was severely jeered by the crowd. The poor champ finally pinned the fading Thailander to the ropes and whipped him with inaccurate combinations, which caused the referee’s generous but unwelcomed stoppage. It was a lousy bout, and some wondered why Amagasa really reigned as the OPBF champ. He looked so poor, so inaccurate and so terrible. Promoter: Kyoei Promotions.

Danny Garcia opponent update

Update: looks like the WBC has signed off on Rod Salka as Danny Garcia’s opponent as they are now listing it on their web page.

Yesterday Golden Boy Promotions and Showtime announced that WBC/WBA super lightweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia was facing “Lightning” Rod Salka (19-3, 3 KOs) topping a world championship tripleheader on August 9 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. However, on their website today, the WBC announced that Garcia would be facing Gabriel Bracero (23-1, 4 KOs) on August 9.

Barcero is rated #13 by the WBC and not rated by the WBA.

Salka is not currently rated by either the WBC or WBA. He has been a lightweight most of his career and is currently the WBC FECARBOX lightweight titleholder.

The WBC also dispelled rumors that Garcia was facing IBF champion Lamont Peterson on that date. Yesterday Golden Boy and Showtime announced that Peterson (32-2-1, 16 KOs) will be facing Edgar “El Chamaco” Santana (29-4, 20 KOs) on the same card.

The highly anticipated world title collision between unbeaten WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford and undefeated three-division titleholder Yuriorkas Gamboa is rightfully getting the headlines, but the HBO opener between unbeaten middleweights José “Bolivita” Uzcategui (22-0, 18 KOs) and Matt Korobov (23-0, 14 KOs) could steal the show.

Uzcategui, who moved from Venezuela to Tijuana, Mexico, to pursue his boxing career, is tall for the middleweight division and has quality wins over the likes of Octavio “Tayo” Castro, Rogelio “Porky” Medina, Jesús Ángel Nerio, Michel Rosales and David “Destroyer” López. He will be making his U.S. debut against Korobov, who is a former two time amateur world champion and 2008 Olympian.
