Briggs headed to Germany

The last U.S. heavyweight champion of the world Shannon Briggs (57-6-1, 50 KOs) fresh off of his 50th career KO this past Saturday is now headed to Germany. No doubt Briggs is planning to be at ringside for the November 15th clash between unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and his mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev. Now world ranked, Briggs’ current comeback has garnered plenty of media attention and fan support for his sought after showdown with Klitschko. He has also has plenty of detractors who question the level of his competition during his comeback.

Briggs responded with the following:

“I would like to thank all the fans who have been supportive during my campaign to land this fight with Wlad. I would like to thank the haters as well as it gives me a lot of motivation during training. I guess some of them forget that when I got the offer to fight Ruslan Chagaev for the then vacant WBA title this past June, I said ‘yes’ immediately and was waiting on a contract. Keep in mind I had just fought and went 12 rounds less than week before they offered me the fight. It’s not my fault that the original opponent ended up taking the fight in the end.

“When I got the offer to fight Tyson Fury to replace Derek Chisora this past July on short notice I knew that multiple people were being offered the fight and as you saw the fight never even happened. (more…)

Sadam Ali: The time is mine

By Matt Richardson
Photos by Peter Frutkoff

Sadam Ali has been toiling on the sidelines for what seems like a long time. A 2008 U.S. Olympian, the unbeaten welterweight from Brooklyn seemingly should have already had a title belt around his waist by now (or at least received his shot). Still, at 26 years of age, time is on his side. With a little luck and some good matchmaking, the 147-pounder could potentially move to the next level.

The first step in that progression will commence this Saturday at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey when Ali takes on the hard-hitting Argentinean warrior Luis Carlos Abregu in the HBO televised co-feature to the Bernard Hopkins-Sergey Kovalev main event.

For Ali (20-0, 12 KOs), now is the time to make it count. (more…)

Saunders: Eubank Jr. was exposed in front of the media today … he needs to man up

Billy Joe Saunders has slammed Chris Eubank Jr. for failing to show up to yet another head-to-head press conference today to promote their Saturday 29th November showdown at the ExCeL London. Saunders, who had travelled from his training camp in Spain with trainer Jimmy Tibbs, was stood up for the third time in a row by Eubank, who was replaced on the top table with a cardboard cutout. Chris Eubank Sr’s reason for not letting his son not attend the press conference was because he claimed the security provided by promoter Frank Warren was not adequate for the safety of his son, following comments that Saunders would “slap” Eubank Jr.

Warren had provided four approved SIA badged security personnel and also allowed Eubank Sr. to bring three of his own personal security guards at the press conference to protect Eubank Jr. And in addition, Warren also offered to install a barrier to divide the top table and keep the rival middleweights separated. Despite these measures plus a letter from Robert Smith, General Secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control, saying that he was satisfied with the security arrangements and advising Eubank Jr to fulfill his contractual obligations and attend the press conference, Eubank Sr. still maintained that his son’s safety would be in danger and would not attend.

Ronnie Shields: Szpilka has to knock out Adamek

Well respected and accomplished trainer Ronnie Shields talks with Fightnews.com about the Polish version of boxing’s “Moment of Truth” between 37-year-old, two-division world champion Tomasz Adamek (49-3, 29 KOs) and 26-year-old slugger Artur Szpilka (16-1, 12 KO). Shields, who worked with Adamek before his win over Chris Arreola, expects a great fight in Krakow Arena on Saturday, delivering clear message to the young challenger…

Bernard Hopkins set to do it his way – again

Story & Photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

It’s fight week, and Bernard Hopkins has been here 65 times before. However, Saturday night’s world light heavyweight championship showdown with Sergey Kovalev, the hardest punching 175-pounder on the scene today, is perhaps his most anticipated fight in ten years. Not since Hopkins, 55-6-2, 2 NC, 32 KOs, faced Oscar De La Hoya in 2004, has the boxing world been so geared up for a fight involving Bernard Hopkins.

“This fight has a lot of politics and a lot of historic things wrapped up around it that I really haven’t had in any fight in a long time,” Hopkins said.

On Saturday night, Hopkins and Kovalev, 25-0-1, 23 KOs, will face off at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall in an HBO 12-rounder to merge the WBA, IBF and WBO titles. But this fight is about much more than championship belts. This is a match between the two best fighters in the light heavyweight division, and one that very well could pass the torch from one generation to the next. (more…)

Chris Eubank Jr a no-show at press conference for clash with Billy Joe Saunders

By James Slater

At today’s press conference at The ExCel Arena in London to further promote the upcoming November 29th clash between defending European middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders and challenger Chris Eubank Jr, the latter was, to the real surprise of nobody, a no-show. Eubank Jr has done this before – and even though reports say Eubank Sr advised his son to stay away from today’s press conference because he was concerned things could boil over and get nasty, maybe even physical – promoter Frank Warren is understandably furious.

“I can’t tell you how angry this makes me feel,” Warren stated today. “He’s [Eubank] doing boxing a great disservice.”

As for the ultra-confident Saunders, who flew in from his training camp in Marbella to attend the press conference, he had the following things to say:

“It’s no skin off my nose, but I feel sorry for you [the media in attendance]. I flew back from Spain, so I’m sure he can come 15 or 20 minutes in the car. I’ve got four weeks to wait and [then] I can punch his head in. I speak what’s on my mind. I knew he wouldn’t show up. All this is mind games. Before I move on to world honors, I want to beat him.” (more…)

Kimura keeps Japanese 108lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

WBC#8/WBA#15/IBF#5/WBO#12 Yu Kimura (15-2-1, 2 KOs), 108, formerly national amateur titlist, kept his Japanese national light-flyweight belt as he was awarded a unanimous technical decision (all 69-64) over Atsushi Aburada (9-7, 5 KOs), 107.75, because of the challenger’s bad laceration caused by an accidental butt at 1:50 of the seventh round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Aburada, an unheralded underdog, had the champ bewildered with a solid looping right to take a point in the opening session, but Kimura utilized his speed and skills to dominate the contest from the second round on. The fifth saw the game challenger from Osaka sustain a gash over the left eyebrow, which became worsened as the game progressed. The ref, midway in the seventh, called a halt and took a technical decision to render it to the champ.

JBC#2 flyweight Tetsuma Hayashi (25-2-2, 9 KOs), 111.5, displayed a fine form in finishing Ryutaro Taira (8-5-2, 3 KOs), 112, with a vicious body shot at 1:59 of the third session in a scheduled eight.

Ex-OPBF feather champ, Filipino Jonel Alibio, 133.5, gave a lesson to an upcoming Japanese hard-puncher Yuichi Yokoyama (14-3, 13 KOs), 133.5, and chalked up a fine TKO win at 2:20 of the fourth canto in a scheduled eight. Alibio brought him to a standstill in a furious mix-up, which had the loser’s corner toss in the towel.

Promoter: Teiken Promotions.

Matsuoka defeats OPBF#12 Pumicpic

Local bantam prospect Hikaru Matsuoka (8-1-3, 1 KO), 120, decked an important victory over OPBF#12 Filipino Richard Pumicpic (15-7-2, 4 KOs), 119.5, by a unanimous decision (79-74, 78-76 twice) over eight rounds on Saturday in Sanda, Japan. The Japanese underdog made good use of his footwork and kept averting Pumicpic’s roundhouse punches, piling up points with faster combinations. Pumicpic, a willing mixer, tried to mix it up but Matsuoka refused to trade punches in the close range all the way.

ebisuoka

OPBF #7 flyweight Filipino Giovanni Escaner (12-3, 8 KOs), 113.75, aggressively attacked Japanese veteran Junichi Ebisuoka (23-18-6, 10 KOs), 115, from the outset and finally caught him to have him at bay with the towel fluttering into the ring at 2:42 of the seventh canto. The ex-world challenger Ebisuoka, 33, apparently passed his peak and tasted the fifth defeat in his latest six bouts. It may be time for him to consider hanging up gloves for good.

Another Filipino victor was Jonel Gadapan (9-7-1, 6 KOs), 134.75, dispatched previously unbeaten local kid Yuji Itani (4-1, 4 KOs), 133.75, at 2:37 of the second session in a scheduled six.

Out of the three international bouts, a couple of Filipinos decked very convincing victories by registering one-sided stoppages. Probably the local promoter had wrong prefight information from a Philippine matchmaker. The crowd looked stunned and disappointed at their local favorites’ bad defeats.

Promoter: Taisei Promotions.

Legendary WBA/IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins, who turns 50 in two months, says he represents all older folks when he unifies against WBO champ Sergey Kovalev on HBO this Saturday. Hopkins stated, “What motivates Bernard Hopkins is every 40 and up person out there that’s living, whatever job they have that they are afraid that this young intern is coming to take it and they can relate to that, then they will root for me and they will be for me, and I’m representing them. And so, black, white, Chinese, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, it doesn’t make any difference, they will look at the age and they will say “Rumble, old man, rumble,” and I will do that. And I will make them proud when I’m done November 8th being the undisputed light heavyweight champion of the world for the second time in my 20 plus year career, going on three decades.”
