Cunningham holds open media workout

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Heavyweight contender Steve “USS” Cunningham, 28-6, 13 KOs, held an open workout for the media at the Shuler Boxing Gym in West Philadelphia today, in advance of his 12-round IBF elimination fight with Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov, 19-0-1, 12 KOs, scheduled for March 14th. The two heavyweights clash on March 14th at the Bell Centre in Montreal with a #1 ranking and a mandatory shot at the IBF heavyweight title at stake. The fight will be broadcast live by HBO.

Cunningham went through a brisk workout with trainer Brother Naazim Richardson and took questions from the media. Both fighter and trainer appeared focused on Glazkov, despite the fact that a potential bout with Wladimir Klitschko could come their way if they are successful in Montreal.

“I’m not worried about none of that,” Cunningham said. “I just got to get in there and handle this business. I’m coming to do what Steve Cunningham does. I come to kick butt. I come to win. I come to walk out of there with my hands raised. I’m excited to be fighting in Canada. It’s my first time, and the fans in Montreal are crazy for boxing. So I’m excited.” (more…)

New and improved Mendez targets lightweight crown

Photo: Dan Grant

Fighting for the first time since losing his IBF Jr. Lightweight title in July 2014, Algenis (correct spelling) Mendez, from the Dominican Republic, has come with a new mindset: to use his natural boxing skills to apply a more aggressive style when he steps into the ring. During his 16-month title reign, the tall and lanky fighter had struggled to make the 130lbs. jr. lightweight limit, another factor which hampered his performances. He will now be competing in the lightweight division.

The road back to a championship started on Feb. 20, when he faced the tough Mexican Daniel Evangelista (17-4-1, 13 KOs) on the ShowBox card headlined by Sammy Vasquez vs. Emmanuel Lartey at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA. Heading into preparations for the fight, trainer Marc Farrait made it clear this would not be Algenis’ typical training camp. “We started working late in the fall of last year,” explained Farrait. “I told him the passive style he had grown accustomed to is not going to work if he wants to win another world title and fight on major TV networks. No more pitty-pat punches and standing in front of his opponent admiring his work.” (more…)

Thurman: Guerrero never should have signed this contract

WBA welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman aims to send challenger and former world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero home with his first KO loss on Saturday night when they headline Saturday night’s NBC boxing card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“We’re going to show him that he never should have signed this contract. There’s a different side of Keith Thurman inside that ring and he’s going to learn the hard way…he hasn’t fought anyone with extreme power like me.

“I’ll be honest, I’m going to stand there and exchange with him for six rounds, and if he’s still standing there we’ll see. With my punching power the KO can come at any time with that one punch. If he walks into it or I lunge at him…it can even be a body shot. I’m just looking to get him out of there. I’m going to do what I need to do to stay a champion and we’re looking to move on past March 7 with a victory.”

“Kell has not fought anyone like me,” said Dan. “I believe in myself and I don’t think he can bring anything I can’t deal with on fight night. (more…)

Weights from Auckland, New Zealand

WBA #10, WBO #11 heavyweight Joseph Parker and American Jason Pettaway weighed in for Thursday’s ten round bout in Auckland, New Zealand. Parker weighed 235 lbs and Pettaway scaled in at 220 lbs.

“We’ve had a tremendous training camp and we’re not at all concerned by the weight,” Parker’s trainer Kevin Barry said. “Joseph has just got stronger and stronger. I expect him to be quick and explosive and throw a lot of punches in this fight.”

Parker said he’d been given license to “let my hands go” by Barry during the bout. “It’s going to be a busy fight,” he said.

Isaac Chilemba
[On his shorter training camp] First of all, I thank God for this opportunity. I am fighting on HBO and it is a dream come true. When I am back home, I always keep in shape so training in the United States is just a tune up for me before the fight. I am really looking forward to next week.

[On his game plan for Lepikhin] I am always ready for anything. We prepare for anything that might possibly happen in the ring. Lepikhin is a good fighter. He has good movement. He has a good jab. That is what training is there for. I don’t see anything to cause a problem in the fight. We will deal with what he brings us. (more…)

“John Molina Jr. is a true warrior,” said Broner. “His nickname suits him. He’s like a punching bag that can hit back with power. He’s a deadly fighter. It can only take a second for a fight to change dramatically with a guy like that, so I’m taking this fight very seriously. I’ll be ready though…There’s going to be lots of heavy hitting. I’m looking forward to stopping John Molina Jr., and if I don’t stop him it will be a bloody massacre.”

WBA#10, WBO#12 heavyweight Joseph Parker (12-0, 10KOs) will clash with Jason Pettaway (17-1, 10KOs) on Thursday in Auckland, New Zealand. Parker’s trainer Kevin Barry was confident this bout will be a learning fight for his charge and does not underestimate the importation.

“As we continue to step up there’s going to be much tougher fights out there for us,” Barry admitted. “This sort of opponent (Pettaway). I want to try and keep the momentum going from his performance in December. I don’t want to lose that momentum and if that means Joe has to throw 75 punches in the first round then that’s what he’ll do. If Joe can go out there and put his combinations together there’s not too many fighters that are going to stand up for the full distance with him. I’m confident in his skill and his power. (more…)

On March 14, heavyweight Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov will face Steve “USS” Cunningham for the #1 position in the IBF and the USBA heavyweight title as the co-feature on the Kovalev-Pascal HBO telecast. The winner of this fight will face the winner of the fight between heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and Bryant Jennings. For this bout, Glazkov will be reunited with former trainer Victor Petrochenko. “John David Jackson was so busy with Sergey [Kovalev],” said Glazkov. “I decided I needed to go with a new trainer. Instead of going with somebody completely new, I chose someone from the past that I used to work with. We are clicking together good.”

To work with Petrochenko, Glazkov had to travel to Oxnard, CA, where he’s 100% focused on Cunningham. “Cunningham is a very experienced fighter. He is a very good fighter. That is why I have to prepare 100% for the fight. Good fight. Good opponent. Will be a good night.”

A former Klitschko sparring partner, Glazkov stated that he can’t predict what will happen in the Klitschko-Jennings fight, “but I would love to go and face Klitschko. I got good experience sparring with Klitschko. If I am going to fight him next, that experience will give me insight to fighting him.”

Carl Froch “dares” Andre Ward to take rematch in Nottingham UK

By James Slater

As fight fans may have read recently, the WBA has ordered a return meeting between their two super-middleweight champions: Carl Froch, the “regular” WBA 168-pound boss and Ward, the “super” champ at the weight according to the governing body. And while it was almost instantly vocalised by the majority of fight fans how Froch would want nothing to do with the man who widely (on most cards) out-pointed him in the “Super-Six” final back in late 2011, Froch has instead called Ward out.

In fact, in speaking with Jeff Powell of The Mail, Froch has “dared” Ward to come to his hometown of Nottingham in the UK to take the rematch. Froch, who has had one eye on retirement ever since his crushing and hugely satisfying KO of George Groves in their May 2014 rematch blockbuster, still wants to fight under the bright lights of Las Vegas; yet he has said to Powell how a revenge win over Ward would be “a fantastic way” to end his great career.

Promoter Hector Soto has said that there is a possibility that the winner of the match will then face the Wonder Boy.

“Now he had more time to train,” said his manager, Bosco Wave. “We are very grateful to Miguel Cotto Promotions because we were warned month and a half in advance and Roberto has been training since January.” The bout scheduled for eight rounds in the super bantamweight division, will headline Univision Puerto Rico’s Boxeo Al Maximo series at the Roger L.

Dawejko intends to keep tank rolling toward Mansour

Story / Interview by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com
File Photos by Darryl Cobb Jr.

Rising Philly heavyweight prospect Joey “The Tank” Dawejko, 13-3-2, 6 KOs, returns to the ring Friday night when he meets “The Nigerian Gentleman”, Enobong Umohette, 9-2, 8 KOs, in the 8-round co-main event at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia. Joey will be looking to extend his five bout winning streak that has spanned the last 14 months.

It was in January 2014 when Dawejko upset fringe contender Derric Rossy in Atlantic City. The surprise victory helped Joey to turn a new leaf in his then-fading pro career. After closing his stellar amateur run in 2009, Dawejko spun his wheels as a professional and appeared to be on a wrong-way trip in the heavyweight division. However, with the Rossy fight, the 5′ 10″ Tank took the opportunity to make a fresh start. Since his win over Rossy, Dawejko has won four more bouts, including his last three by first round knockout. Suddenly after that very good 5-0 year, Dawejko’s career is hot again. (more…)
