By Miquel Maravilla
Photos: Chris Farina/Top Rank

Undefeated WBA super lightweight world champion Jessie Vargas and former two-division world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley Jr. faced off Thursday during the final press conference for their WBO welterweight world title fight on Saturday at StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Timothy Bradley: “This place brings back horrific memories against Ruslan Provodnikov…Saturday night’s gonna be an entertaining fight. Once again I’m fighting a young, hungry, determined champion. Like I always say, ‘Bring on the best!’

“I have nothing against you Erik Morales. What happened two days ago on that rant was because as soon as I got out of the car, I’m tired, I’m hungry, I gotta take a piss, and I hear somebody saying something negative about myself and my team. It kinda caught me by surprise. So when I went off on that rant, it was because I was angry because of everything that was going on. So I got a lot of respect for you, Erik. I appreciate what you do in the sport. You were a tremendous fighter, Hall of Fame fighter, so there’s no bad blood. I’m just letting you know that.”

Jessie Vargas: “Erik knows what’s best. I want to fight as he did, but in my style as well…I can assure you from this side that we won’t stop throwing punches.”

Erik Morales: “The Mexican boxing style is the best in the world. It has emotion, it has power and ‘muchos blanquillos.’ Jessie Vargas is ready.”

Joel Diaz: “Tim Bradley is ready to go…he fights just like a Mexican as well. Everybody knows he has a lot of ‘blanquillos.'”

Browne: I’ll fight Wilder anytime, anywhere

WBA mandatory title challenger Lucas Browne has laid down the gauntlet to WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, telling Wilder to name the time and place for a fight. Browne, who is treading water waiting to challenge for Ruslan Chagaev’s WBA “regular” crown, began goading Wilder following the Alabama-native’s performance against Eric Molina earlier this month. Wilder has this week responded in a video posted online, saying the matter is now “personal” and that Browne may well be his next fight

“I saw Deontay’s video and wasn’t really impressed,” Lucas said. “Deontay says ‘I don’t believe in myself’. Anyone who knows me, knows that could not be further from the truth. I believe I’m the hardest hitting heavyweight in the world. There’s no doubt in my mind of that.

“He said he hopes I continue to climb the rankings… well I’m already ranked above his last opponent, Eric Molina, who would be lucky to last three rounds with me. He gave Wilder a tough fight. (more…)

Morales: Bradley wants to fight me? Insane!

It all started on Tuesday afternoon when former two-division world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley Jr. (31-1-1, 12 KOs), of Palm Springs, Calif., arrived at his fight week hotel and was asked about his upcoming welterweight world title fight against undefeated World Boxing Association (WBA) super lightweight world champion Jessie Vargas (26-0, 9 KOs), of Las Vegas, NV.

“Jessie Vargas? I’m going to whup his ass on Saturday! And if [trainer Erik] Morales got a problem and he wants some he can get some at the end of the year too. I’m going to beat his boy,” declared Bradley. “Then I can come back and I’ll beat his [Morales] behind. He can come out of retirement. We can fight at a catchweight – 154 pounds…200 pounds — and I’m going to whup your ass next! I’m fired up for this! Thank you for firing me up. That Saturday night is going to be a good night. It’s going to be a good night for Team Bradley. I’m going to walk out that ring with another belt strapped around me.”

When Vargas and Morales were confronted with Bradley’s statements at their media workout today here is what they had to say:

“I’m not surprised. He is cracking up from the pressure of fight week,” said Vargas. “He’s obviously very intimated by what he is about to face on Saturday night. This fight will be his downfall. I have had the greatest training camp. I have never felt stronger or hit harder. Erik has been an incredible trainer and who better to learn from then one of the greatest pound for pound champions of his era? We know everything about Bradley. This was a Jessie Vargas training camp in an Erik Morales style.”

“Bradley wants to fight me? Insane,” responded Morales, a former four-division world champion and future Hall of Famer. “He should be worrying about Jessie giving him a rematch. Bradley needs to get by Jessie and he won’t. I assure you Jessie will win on Saturday and from the way Bradley is acting out, it sounds like he knows it.”

Danny Green to fight again

Danny-Green---June-2015
By Brett Bonetti

Four Time World Champion Danny “The Green Machine” Green (33-5, 28 KO’s) held a press conference at the Crown Sports Bar in Melbourne Australia today to announce he will return to the ring to face former world title challenger Tamas Kovacs (26-1, 15 KOs) from Slovakia at Hisense Arena in Melbourne on Wednesday August 19.

Green hasn’t been in the ring since he claimed the IBO World Cruiserweight Title in Melbourne in November 2012 with his victory over New Zealander Shane Cameron.

“I felt it was time to return, I’ve enjoyed my break but it’s time to get back to business” Green said.

Green at 42 will fight Kovacs at Cruiserweight although it will be at an agreed 189.6 lb (86kg) catch weight.

The 38-year-old Kovacs is a tough opponent for The Green Machine following a long layoff, with the Slovakians only blemish coming via a three round stoppage to former WBA Light Heavyweight champion Beibut Shumenov (15-2, 10 KO’s) in a world title fight.

“Kovacs is a formidable opponent, he’s a former WBO European light heavyweight champion and he has only one loss to his name, he poses a danger” Green said.

But Green says a second fight with Anthony ‘The Man” Mundine (47-6, 27 KO’s) remains his end game and the opportunity to avenge the most hurtful defeat on his record is behind his decision to get back in the ring again.

Mundine defeated Green in 2006 via unanimous points decision in Sydney, and the two camps have been in recent contact while Green and Mundine were involved in a short and entertaining social media war.

Green has kept very busy with the 1 year anniversary of his successful gym Greenzone Fitness in Warwick in Perth happening next month, the ongoing anti-violence “Coward’s Punch” campaign, and also with the online health and fitness program “Team Danny Green”.

But for now Green says and still has a burning passion for the sport. Long-time trainer Angelo Hyder said that Green has looking great in the gym and has maintained his fighting weight.
