WBC Super Middleweight Champion Carl Froch (25-0, 20 KOs) said Wednesday that he’d finish Andre Dirrell (18-0, 13 KOs) by the 8th round of their fight on October 17. Dirrell, who joined the English fighter in a teleconference, laughed and told Froch it won’t happen, “unless you can hit the air so hard that the wind knocks me down.” The match, part of the first round of Showtime’s Super Six World Boxing Classic, will be shown live from Nottingham, England, as part of a doubleheader with taped, same-day coverage of Jermain Taylor’s fight with Arthur Abraham, to be held in Berlin, Germany. Dirrell, who is training in Big Bear, Calif., said early and often that Froch has never faced someone with his speed and skill—and that the Englishman can’t handle it. Froch, who played up his experience and battles with Jean Pascal and Taylor, said talking’s easy. “We’re going to find out if Andre Dirrell has the heart to match his mouth,”

WBA super-fly champ Nobuo Nashiro (13-1-1, 8 KOs), 115, kept his belt as he battled a grueling fight en route to a split draw (116-112, 112-116 and 114-114) with ex-WBO 108-pound ruler Hugo Cazares (30-6-2, 22 KOs), 114, over hard-fought twelve rounds on Wednesday in Osaka, Japan. It was a see-saw affair in the first eight sessions, but Nashiro went forward and scored with solid straight rights to the fading Mexican down the stretch. The audience believed in Nashiro’s victory, but the officials might have evaluated Cazares’ better volumes of punches, if not accurate, in earlier rounds. The last round saw Nashiro explode a very strong right to the face to have Cazares staggering to the ropes. (More to come)

WBC honors Mildenberger

mildenberger

Heavyweight favorite Karl Mildenberger was honored by the WBC in his hometown of Kaiserslautern, Germany on Sunday. A long time before Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko thought about filling sports stadiums in Germany, Mildenberger fought the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali, in front of 40,000 people in Frankfurt’s soccer stadium in 1966. As well as Ali, Karl also shared the ring with famous heavyweight names such as Oscar Bonavena, Henry Cooper, Zora Folley and Billy Walker. Karl “The Great,” pictured here with his friend Roman Kolaczek, won the European heavyweight championship in 1965, a year before he gave Ali the toughest fight of his career up to that point. He was delighted to accept the WBC mini belt on Sunday. “It’s amazing that people like Mr. Sulaiman and the WBC haven’t forgotten champions like me,” he said. “I’m very honoured to receive this belt today. Mr. Sulaiman is a man with a big heart and I send him my warmest regards. This is another fabulous day in my life”

Over the course of the past two weeks Malignaggi’s promoter, Lou DiBella of DiBella Entertainment, and Diaz’s promoter, Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions, began hammering out the details of Malignaggi vs. Diaz 2, with both sides agreeing that everything would be split and distributed evenly, from the fighter’s purses to the percentage of profits off the event that both companies would keep. The two sides had begun reaching out to venues in Chicago due to its neutral location between Malignaggi’s hometown of Brooklyn, New York, and Diaz’s hometown of Houston, Texas (where the first fight took place). Even HBO was onboard, agreeing to pay a hefty license fee for the rights to air the bout on December 12. However Diaz and manager Willie Savannah rejected the offer Schaefer had struck on his behalf.
