Roach: Cotto will run!

By Nick Giongco

Freddie Roach has a gut feeling that Miguel Cotto is not going to press the action against Manny Pacquiao but will resort to being a counter-puncher in a bid to mess up the Filipino’s all-out attacking style when they meet on Nov. 14 in Las Vegas. Roach’s eyes lit up when told about reports about Cotto utilizing a 24×24 ring instead of the standard 18×18 that fighters normally use in preparing for fights. “Cotto will try to be a counter-puncher and be like (Juan Manuel) Marquez,” Roach told Fightnews Wednesday afternoon as he was awaiting the arrival of Pacquiao at the Gerry Penalosa Boxing Gym in Mandaluyong, putting sense into reports that Cotto is indeed using an oversized ring to prepare for Pacquiao.

Hasegawa faces Morel

By Joe Koizumi

WBC bantamweight champ Hozumi Hasegawa (27-2, 11 KOs), making his commemorative tenth defense, will put his belt on the line against Puerto Rican Eric Morel (41-2, 21 KOs), ex-WBA flyweight titlist, in Kobe, Japan, on December 18. It was announced by his promoter/manager/trainer Masato Yamashita at a press conference yesterday. The 29-year-old Japanese southpaw seems to have abruptly become a hard-puncher, as he lately registered four pulverizing defenses in a row: Cristian Faccio (TKO2), Alejandro Valdez (TKO2), Vusi Malinga (TKO1) and Nestor Rocha (TKO1). Morel, however, will not be an easy challenger, as he, ranked atop by the WBO, is an excellent boxer-puncher with speed, skills and power, plus experience. After his comeback Morel, 34, decked six victories straight with three within the distance to his credit. Even if the Pueruto Rican veteran isn’t so easy, we, Japanese aficionados, look forward to watching Hasegawa’s fifth consecutive defense by KO, though we wish to see him fight a little longer than one or two rounds. Former WBC feather champ Takahiro Aoh (17-2-1, 8 KOs), a fast-moving and quick-punching southpaw, will appear on the undercard in his first appearance since his forfeiture of the belt to Elio Rojas on points this July.

Q&A: Edwin Valero

By Robert Coster

Is Edwin Valero the man nobody wants to face? The unbeaten, dynamite punching WBC lightweight champion with 25 knockouts in 25 fights is calling out for the big name boxers, Pacquiao, Mayweather or any other fighter in the face of the planet, to dare step into the ring and face his murderous fists. Yet, there are many pundits who feel that Valero has yet to face a real, stern test by facing a truly elite boxer. The fact is that Valero remains an enigma to many and even more so because the southpaw destroyer has been fighting outside of the USA. First Edwin was denied fights in American rings for over five years for allegedly having failed an MRI test. After finally getting OK’d to fight in Austin, Texas in April, Valero has subsequently been denied a US visa. Fightnews sat down with the brazen, supremely confident champion to discuss the visa controversy, his hopes for the future and his real frustration at not being given the opportunity to fight those marquee name boxers who he feels are evading him.

WBA Heavyweight Champion Nikolai Valuev (50-1, 34 KOs) is unfazed by David Haye´s latest antics, insisting he could not care less about the challenger´s constant provocations. Last week, the 29-year-old (22-1, 21 KOs) once again insulted the biggest and tallest champion of all time at a press conference in England. Valuev barely took any notice – he gave up caring about his opponent a long time ago. “I don’t really care about what he says or does,” Valuev stated. “I cannot take him seriously. When I first heard about the t-shirts where he chopped the Klitschkos, I thought ‘Oh my God, another idiot in our world.’ He can say whatever he likes – it will not get him my title.” (more…)

Team Mundine

By Craig Watt

Australian IBO middleweight champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine (36-3, 23 KOs) is one of boxing’s most controversial and outspoken characters, often noted for his exploits outside the ring, rather than his achievements inside the ropes. Behind the brash exterior however is a boxer that has operated at world level for the last five years and is a former two weight WBA champion at super middleweight and middleweight. He added the IBO 160 pound title in May when he outpointed Daniel Geale in a close and split decision in Brisbane. Both fighters share the same bill at the Silverdome in Prospect, Tasmania on Wednesday in a bill titled, “The Road To Rematch” aimed at building to a rematch of the two fighters, planned for 2010. Their first fight was one of the best seen in an Australian ring earlier this year and the IBO has ordered a rematch, such was the close scoring of the bout. (more…)
