Former world champions “Vicious” Victor Ortiz (31-5-2, 24 KOs) of Oxnard and Andre “The Beast” Berto (30-4, 23 KOs) of Winter Haven, Florida held a press conference Wednesday afternoon at the Conga Room at LA Live in Los Angeles for their rematch taking place April 30 at Stub Hub Center in Carson, California in the next series of Premier Boxing Champions on FOX.

Andre Berto: “The fight back in 2011, he got me. He did what he had to do to win. But this time I’m going in extremely focused and ready to take everything that I felt he took from me that night. I went to school. I failed the test and now I have the chance to ace it…This is what he asked for. So I want to make sure he knows what he’s getting himself into. This isn’t the same situation as last time. So we’ll see it in the ring. Come out on April 30 and see me handle this business.”

Victor Ortiz: “Berto blames me for his downward spiral. He thinks he has a chance this time. Always a good dream to have. I’m not going the distance this time. I’m going in 100 miles per hour, full throttle. 2011 was one heck of a year. The repeat is coming on April 30 because I want another world championship. Berto is a tremendous warrior; I’ll give him that. I’ll be ready and I know he will be too.”

Shortly after the photo face-off Ortiz and Berto had words as suddenly Berto shoved Ortiz. The two fighters were immediately separated as the fighters continued to jaw at each other. (more…)

Philly Lightweight Legend Dorsey Lay Passes at 91

lay300
Story & photo by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

The last remaining boxing legend of Philadelphia’s golden era of the 1940’s passed away on March 17th. Dorsey Lay was a prominent lightweight boxer who competed in perhaps the finest era of 135-pounders, and compiled a professional record of 40-18-1, 17 KOs. Born in LaGrange, GA on December 31, 1924, Lay was 91 at the time of his death.

Lay was a fine amateur before turning pro, and placed second at the 1941 Mid-Atlantic AAU tournament, representing the Pomeroy School for Boys.

“I started boxing when I went to a boy’s school up in Pomeroy, Pennsylvania,” Lay remembered. “Mrs. Carter; she brought me up to Pomeroy. It was a lovely place. Fifty boys; you had to get along. We did farm work. We went to school there. We boxed in the field. All them boys up there, you had to protect yourself, learn something. She had about 50 boys up there.” (more…)

Do you really think this is Pacquiao’s last fight?

“I personally don’t know if this will be Manny’s last fight but he is training like it’s going to be his last fight. Manny has achieved so much in his boxing career and if this is going to be his swan song I know he wants to go out blazing with a spectacular performance. He’s pouring everything into this training. If the opportunity for a knockout presents itself during the fight, he’s going to go for it. He knows how to close the show and he wants this show closed with fireworks. He wants to finish the book on his boxing career with a spectacular ending.

As a trainer, would you say Pacquiao has more quality fights in him?

Adamek before Molina fight: “I’m ready”

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Former WBC light heavyweight and IBF cruiserweight champion and heavyweight title contender Tomasz Adamek (50-4, 30 KO) is confident that his 10 week training camp in Osada Sniezka, Łomnica, Poland, will be enough to prepare him for Eric Molina (24-3, 18 KO). “The ring always verifies better than just words, but with my trainer Roger Bloodworth and whole Team Adamek, we did everything possible to beat Molina and return to the heavyweight elite. I know that Eric will come to Poland as confident as I am. Nothing better for the fans – two confident fighters facing each other,” said Adamek at today’s open training for Polish media.

Two-time world champion Andre Ward, IBF #1 light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera, unbeaten featherweight Joseph “Jojo” Diaz Jr. and Jayson “La Maravilla” Velez participated today in a media workout ahead of their scheduled fights this Saturday at Oracle Arena in Oakland. Ward-Barrera and Diaz-Velez will bothbe televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing.

Andre Ward: “My brain has thanked me for these two years and my body has thanked me for these two years. Fighting at 175, I get to eat. I’m a little bit happier.”

Sullivan Barrera: “Andre Ward has his name and I’m fighting in his hometown so I have to have the knockout. I would have to even if we were fighting in Las Vegas. More than anything, I am determined to overcome this challenge.”

Joseph Diaz: “Camp’s been amazing. I’m as fast as ever and I feel stronger than ever. I’ve had an eight-week training camp and I had an easy time getting right down to the weight. I know Jayson’s ready — he’s looking good — and I’m ready, too.”

Jayson Velez: “The last three or four fights I would dominate the first three or four rounds and I’d run out of gas, but I’m training differently and I have a lot more stamina. It will be his speed versus my power and it’s Mexico versus Puerto Rico.”

Gilberto Ramirez: “This is my time. I have a lot of respect for Arthur Abraham. He’s a great champion. I know he’s working hard in training camp as am I. It’s going to be a great fight. I have to be smart in this fight. We are working on keeping the pressure on Abraham by throwing high volumes of punches and staying on top of him. I’m going to be a second skin on him. I feel a great sense of history fighting to become Mexico’s first super middleweight champion. It is a great honor representing my country in this fight. All I am thinking about is April 9.

The Log and the Short of a Boxing Mystery

pacquiao-bradley3By Bill Dwyre

With three weeks to go before Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley step into the ring in Las Vegas with intentions of punching each other’s lights out, a mystery continues to loom.

We know about Pacquiao’s retirement intentions, and about his political desires. The only mysteries there are (1) will he actually retire and (2) will he actually be elected a Philippine senator.

We know about Bradley’s discomfort with never getting the slight bit of credit for a victory over Pacquiao that the judges gave him, but nobody else did. We also know he has stopped trying to do battle with other boxers while fueling himself on Caesar Salad. Filet mignon, Tim. Then filet the opponent.

What we don’t know is what “The Log in the Ocean” means. (more…)

Sullivan Barrera: Realizing a Dream That’s Bigger Than Boxing

By Jesse Wright
Photo: Craig Bennett/Main Events

There is one fight that every single person in the boxing universe is talking about right now: Sergey Kovalev vs. Andre Ward. Although that will no doubt be a phenomenal fight both lucratively and in entertainment value, there is still one more fight that needs to happen before we start getting excited. That fight, of course, is the one between Cuban amateur standout Sullivan Barrera and Andre Ward on Saturday, March 26th live on HBO. We got a chance to catch up with Barrera and not only learn what this fight means to his career, but what it will mean to accomplish a dream that should have been impossible.

Andre Ward is regarded by many as one of boxing’s pound for pound greatest. His undefeated record of 28-0 with 15 KOs came against the best competition the super middleweight division had to offer. Now at light heavyweight after an extensive layoff, Ward has only had one fight against overmatched Edwin Rodriguez back in November. Barrera will not be holding Ward’s past success in high regard once the bell sounds on Saturday. (more…)

Mighty Mo: I’m here to steal the show

Hard hitting WBO NABO junior welterweight champion “Mighty Mo” Maurice Hooker (19-0-2, 14KO) out of Dallas, Texas takes on Columbian southpaw Wilfrido Buelvas (17-5, 11KO) on Saturday, March 26th at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA as part of the Andre Ward-Sullivan Barrera undercard. This will be Hooker’s first fight since signing with Roc Nation who also promotes Ward.

It has not been an easy road for the affable Hooker, who fought on the streets of Dallas as a teen before being led to a boxing gym that changed his life. Hooker, tall and slender with a big right hand, had his first pro fight against a 7-1 fighter where he earned a respectable draw. Under the guidance of his manager Arnie Verbeek and trainer Vincent Parra, he has gradually worked his way up the ladder and now has his sights on a world title. Although signing with Roc Nation should give him a big boost to his career, both inside and outside the ring, Hooker is still not completely content. (more…)
