Brook and Khan exchange more barbs

The banter between welterweight rivals Kell Brook and Amir Khan continues.

Kell Brook to BBC 5 Live: “If someone said to me you can get five million quid, a world title, fight at Wembley with a fight that every fan wants to see, it’s a no-brainer for me. He’s fighting Algieri who didn’t win a round against Pacquiao, a feather puncher, not a big puncher. It doesn’t make sense to me. I’m world champion, I’m calling him out, we want the fight, there’s a world title and a bagful of money and it doesn’t make sense that he’s fighting this guy who’s bringing nothing to the table.”

Amir Khan on Twitter: “Can everyone please wake up. I said the fight between me and Kell Brook will happen. When I think it’s right. Look at who Kell fought last. If it is Algieri (only beaten once by pacquiao at 147 and still 140 WBO world champion) he’s still a better opponent than No No Dan. Seems to me Kell Brook is dying to fight me for the big payday before he faces a half decent opponent and loses that IBF title.”

Stevenson and Bika talking knockouts

By Karl Freitag

A lot of talk about knockouts between WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson and challenger Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika, who collide on Saturday afternoon on CBS television.

“I’m a knockout artist,” proclaimed Stevenson. “I can do a lot in the ring, but first and foremost I’m a knockout artist…my mentor Emanuel Steward always told me that as soon as I enter the ring the knockout is what sells. I’ll definitely be going for the knockout this Saturday on CBS.”

Bika stated, “He’s knocked people out, but I’ve never been knocked out. On Saturday I’ll be the one to knock him out.”

Stevenson, who has stopped 11 of his last 12 opponents, is about a 15:1 favorite. But will he get the KO against Bika who has gone the full twelve in four straight fights?

Adonis Stevenson by KO. TKO or DQ: -150
Adonis Stevenson by decision: +162

Boxcino 2014 lightweight tournament winner and former junior welterweight world title challenger Petr “El Zar” Petrov (35-4-2, 16 KOs) will meet former junior lightweight titlist Gamaliel “El Platano” Diaz (39-11-3, 18 KOs) in the 10-round lightweight main event on tonight’s ESPN Friday Night Fights from the Omega Products Center in Corona, Calif.

Petrov, as you may remember, was scheduled to fight Hank Lundy in January on ESPN2, but the fight was cancelled due to Lundy’s inability to make weight. Prior to that, Petrov scored an eighth-round TKO win over Fernando Carcamo to win the Boxcino 2014 lightweight tournament.

Diaz is looking to get back to his winning ways following a third-round technical draw against Anthony Crolla.

Ao to meet Beltran for vacant WBO 135lb belt in Las Vegas

Report and photo by Joe Koizumi

Two-time ex-world champ, Japanese southpaw Takahiro Ao (pronounced as Are-Oh; 26-3-1, 12 KOs) will square off against Mexican warrior Raymundo Beltran (29-7-1, 17 KOs) in quest of the vacant WBO lightweight belt in Las Vegas on May 1 — on the eve of the Mayweather-Pacquiao showdown. Teiken Promotions, in association with Top Rank, Inc., announced that it would take place at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas to be telecast by True TV.

Ao, formerly WBC feather and super-feather titlist, aims to win his third world belt, saying, “The third crown will motivate me very much and I’m confident to acquire it with my best effort.” Beltran, two years his senior at 33, is a tough battler who failed to win a belt via controversial draw with Ricky Burns in England and via unanimous nod by Terence Crawford in Nebraska. It will be a good matchup between the shifty lefty (Ao) and the game willing mixer (Beltran). For Ao, it won’t be more difficult to win the belt than to have American people correctly pronounce his name, Ao.

Unbeaten featherweight Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez (14-0, 8 KOs) pounded out a oe-sided ten round decision over Raul “Bule” Hidalgo (23-13, 17 KOs) on Thursday night at the Belasco Theater, Los Angeles, California. Ramirez, the nephew of the late great former world champion Genaro “Chicanito” Hernandez, won by scores of 100-90 on all three cards.

Unbeaten featherweight Joet Gonzalez (9-0, 4 KOs) scored a second round KO over Ali Gonzalez (6-6-1, 1 KO). A hook to the liver ended the fight. Time was 2:55.

Two-time Brazilian Olympian Everton Lopes (2-0, 1 KO) scored a first round KO over Robert Seyam (2-3) in a lightweight bout. Shortly after both fighters left their corners, Lopes floored Seyam with a strong body shot, which Seyam couldn’t recover from. Time of the stoppage was 1:24.
