Stevenson set to face Bika on CBS Saturday

By Karl Freitag

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) and challenger Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika (32-6-3, 21 KOs) had a conference call last week to discuss Saturday afternoon’s CBS-televised world title clash at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City. However questions addressed to Stevenson repeatedly had to do with rival IBF/WBO/WBA champion Sergey Kovalev rather than his fight with Bika. “I’m very focused on Bika right now,” said Stevenson over and over. “Bika is in my face now. I don’t see Kovalev or anybody in my face now, just Bika.”

Bika’s trainer Kevin Cunningham finally commented “I want to thank the media on this conference call for getting my fighter fired up. I don’t have to do it because you guys have done it for me. He feels disrespected. He doesn’t even see the reason he needed to be on this conference call because the conference call was basically about Stevenson and Kovalev. So you guys have helped me out in terms of motivating my fighter and I appreciate it.” (more…)

Full Report from Hammond, Indiana

By Craig Wick
Photos: Tom Barnes/Hitz Boxing

High drama and higher stakes were on the line at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, IN Saturday night as veteran Chicago fight promoter, Bobby Hitz, presented a ten-bout card that had major implications for local favorite and headliner, Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez. A win by Jimenez, taking on the dangerous Kevin Engel, garnered him a coveted slot on the undercard of the May 2nd Mayweather vs Pacquiao blockbuster. An upset loss however would not only dash a career best payday, not to mention future big fight opportunities, but would relegate Jimenez back to Midwest, main- event status, taking on the kinds of opponents who aren’t household names even in their own households. High stakes indeed. (more…)

Maruki wins WBC Youth 154lb belt to follow his father’s footsteps

Report and photos by Joe Koizumi

Japanese challenger Ryosuke Maruki (9-3-1, 7 KOs), 153.75, impressively captured the WBC Youth super-welterweight belt when he scored a dramatic come-from-behind knockout of defending champ Petchsuriya Singwangcha (22-12, 9 KOs), 153.75, from Thailand, at 1:20 of their rematch on Sunday in Kariya, Japan. It was a grudge fight since Petchsuriya defeated him by a hard-fought majority decision last July. Ryosuke, who celebrated his birthday on this fight day, is a son of his manager/trainer Takao Maruki, former world title challenger who unfortunately failed to win the WBA junior feather belt from Samuel Serrano via unanimous decision in Nagoya in 1978. Takao now handles Ryosuke as well as his elder brother Kazuya (18-3, 12 KOs), now JBC’s #11 super-light contender. (more…)

Pressure mounting on Amir Khan to take all-British mega-fight with Kell Brook

By James Slater

Aside from a super-bantamweight unification meeting between rival champions Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg, an Amir Khan-Kell Brook showdown is arguably the most talked about all-British super-fight that could be made this year. IBF welterweight champion Brook – who looked sensational in becoming the first man to halt Jo Jo Dan in last night’s Sheffield homecoming – again called out former 140-pound king Khan, suggesting the fight would “sell out Wembley” if it happened this June.

Brook, however, says he is sure he would KO Khan were the fight to happen and that the only way Khan will take the fight is if the Bolton man buckles under public demand for the fight.

“I don’t know why he hasn’t taken the fight. It baffles me,” Brook told Sky Sports News on the subject of a clash with Khan. “He knows he’s delicate around the whiskers, as I keep saying. It’s just a matter of time before he’s forced into that fight because of the public demand, and we’ll see him on the canvas once again.” (more…)

Quigley captures Virginia Welterweight title; Jeter scores second-round knockout in Springfield, VA

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

The promotional combination of Jeter Promotions and RBA Promotions brought a standing-room only crowd to the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA Saturday night to witness 11 exciting bouts.

The main event saw undefeated Montgomery Village, MD welterweight Gerome “Showstopper” Quigley score a fifth-round knockout over Richard “Tiger” Lee Hall of Rocky Mount, NC to win the Virginia State welterweight title. Quigley was very precise with his jab and that set up his power shots including a vicious counter left hook that dropped Hall for the knockout at 2:30 of the fifth round. Quigley is now 7-0, six KO’s while Hall’s record drops to 10-23-3, six KO’s. Despite neither man hailing from Virginia, both men have competed in the Commonwealth in their careers, making them eligible for the state title. (more…)

Jimenez survives scare

By Craig Wick at ringside

At the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana Saturday night, Chicago prospect, Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (17-0, 11 KOs) overcame a huge knockdown in the opening round only to roar back and stop the dangerous Kevin Engel (20-12, 16 KOs) St. Louis, Missouri in round two of a scheduled ten round super middleweight contest. Jimenez, scheduled to face the undefeated Jesse Hart of Philadelphia on the undercard of the May 2nd Mayweather vs Pacquiao blockbuster, nearly saw that opportunity derailed courtesy of a huge, straight right hand by Engel midway through round one. Jimenez amazingly survived the round and midway through round two launched a left hook to the head of Elder that dropped him in a neutral corner, unable to beat the count. Time of the stoppage was 1:46.

Russell dominates, KOs Gonzalez to win WBC featherweight title

By Tracy Morin at ringside

In the main event from Palms Resort Casino in Las Vegas, Jhonny Gonzalez (57-9, 48 KOs) entered the ring to defend his WBC featherweight belt against Gary Russell (26-1, 15 KOs), who was eager to redeem himself by claiming a win in his second shot at a title. Russell flashed his considerable hand speed from the get-go, landing mostly jabs in the first round, but after a slow start Gonzalez was more apt to throw in the second and started to find his tactical-minded target. As they both traded power shots in the third, the action looked to be heating up, until a straight left hand-right hook combo put Gonzalez down just before the bell. Russell followed up furiously in the fourth with a barrage of combinations punctuated by a left hook that turned Gonzelez’ legs to rubber and put him down again–and this time, he was very unsteady on his feet when he stood up. Russell returned to work, throwing more lightning-quick combos and putting Gonzalez down for a third time with a left hook and right uppercut that pitched his opponent forward. Referee Tony Weeks stepped in and called the bout off at 0:57 of round 4. (more…)

Olubowale was in command for the first four rounds and dropped Ruddock at the very end of round four. In round five, Ruddock connected with an uppercut that floored Olubwale! Olubwale beat the count, but wobbled when he regained his feet and the bout was very quickly waved off.

Both Brook and promoter Eddie Hearn called out Amir Khan.

“It was truly amazing to walk out in front of all my fans,” said Brook. “I didn’t think I would ever box again but here I am filling arenas.
