Z! Promotions shocks Sauerland in purse bid for Price-Teper clash

By Boxing Bob Newman

The purse bid for the vacant EBU (European Boxing Union) heavyweight title was held today in Rome at noon local time. The bout will be contested between former 2008 Olympic Bronze medalist David Price (19-2, 16 KOs) of the UK and Erkan Teper (14-0, 9 KOs) of Germany. The winning promoter was Z!-Promotion (Germany) with a bid of €252,500. Z!-Promotions outbid Price’s promoter Sauerland Promotion AG (UK) who offered €231,979.55. Z!-Promotions has two weeks to announce a date for the match, which could very well scuttle a planned June 26 date for Price at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.

Ironically, or maybe not in boxing- Z!-Promotions managing partner Hagen Doering, who shared the purse bid victory with Fightnews just moments ago, was a longtime matchmaker for Sauerland. The EBU title was vacated by Tyson Fury who is concentrating on his expected clash with WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight kingpin Wladimir Klitschko, possibly in the Fall.

DeGale: This ain’t going to be a boxing match

Saturday’s NBC-televised super middleweight showdown for the vacant IBF title between Olympic medalists Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) and James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) heated up last week during a conference call with reporters.

“Momentum is a big thing,” said DeGale. “Look at my last two performances against good, quality opponents (Marco Antonio Periban and Brandon Gonzalez) and look his last three (Derek Edwards, Nick Brinson and Vladine Biosse).

“Listen, I come from good pedigree and so does Andre. We’re good, quality, young fighters. But I just think overall, I’m better. I think he struggles. He doesn’t like it when it gets hard in there. He’s a competent fighter, but he likes it when he’s dictating the pace and he’s on the front foot.

“Well listen, I’m not going to let him rest. He thinks this is going to be a boxing match. Well, this ain’t. I’m telling him now. This ain’t going to be a boxing match. I’m going in there and I’m taking the title. I’m taking it. I’m ripping it away from him.”

ESPN2 FNF getting ready for the end

By Karl Freitag

When ESPN2 Friday Night Fights presents its final show on Friday, it will mark the end of a long history of weekly Friday night boxing on the network.

ESPN originally aired a weekly show called “ESPN Top Rank Boxing,” that ran from 1980 to 1996. Al Bernstein and Sal Marchiano were the original ringside announcers. After Marchiano left the network, Barry Tompkins eventually stabilized as Bernstein’s regular partner.

In 1998, the network introduced “ESPN2 Friday Night Fights.” The show featured Bob Papa and Teddy Atlas at ringside, with Max Kellerman and Brian Kenny in the studio. Papa eventually gave way to Joe Tessitore. Kellerman and Kenny moved on and were replaced by Todd Grisham. Bernardo Osuna was later added to provide live interviews and reports.

Friday’s ESPN2 telecast will include a special video essay written and voiced by Tessitore in which he will put into perspective what Friday Night Fights has meant to the fan, and he summarizes what the brand has meant to the boxing community over the last 17 years.

Thankfully, two new Friday night boxing series, MetroPCS Friday Night Knockout on truTV and PBC on Spike TV will keep Friday nights alive with quality fights.

Moraga Ready For the Worst To Be The Best

When a fighter’s training is their instinct, even in the worst of times, that’s when they’ve become truly dangerous.

This past December at UFC on FOX: Dos Santos vs. Miocic, the times were looking pretty grim for UFC flyweight John Moraga in the first round against Willie Gates. In front of his hometown crowd in Phoenix, Moraga ate a low kick to the cup and tried to get the referee’s attention for a stop in the action. No break would come, but a straight right from Gates would and it dropped Moraga. In a flash, Gates was on Moraga’s back, threatening a rear naked choke and Moraga needed to get his wits about him quick to fight off the huge upset loss . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Boxing Notes

By Karl Freitag

WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto told El Vocero that he didn’t watch the Canelo Alvarez-James Kirkland fight because he knew it wouldn’t be competitive.

Still no U.S. TV carrier for the attractive June 20 clash for the IBF middleweight title (formerly held by Jermain Taylor) between Hassan N’Dam and David Lemieux. That bout will be on par-per-view in Canada.

Promoter Frank Warren says he’ll be announcing details of of the clash for the vacant WBO lightweight title (formerly held by Terence Crawford) between #1 rated Terry Flanigan and #2 Jose Zepeda “very soon.”

Whatever happened to the Showtime international boxing telecasts?

Per Matchroom, Michael Buffer calls Anthony Joshua vs. Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson on May 30 “a must see heavyweight bout.”

Boxing was back Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California as the WBA, IBO, and the WBC interim middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin from Kazakhstan went toe-to-toe with contender Willie “The Mongoose” Monroe Jr. of Ithaca, New York. As promised Golovkin delivered a “Big Drama Show” with his sixth round stoppage of a game opponent in front of 12,372 fans.

The slick southpaw Monroe popped the jab, sticking and moving right from the opening bell as Golovkin stalked his way closer to land hard compact punches. Golovkin cut off the ring as Monroe was on the move in round two and dropped Monroe with a huge left hook on the inside. Golovkin continued the attack as soon as Monroe recovered and connected with a right hand that sent him to the canvas for a second time. Monroe got up and survived the round . . . click here for more

Business officially got underway Monday at the 32nd annual IBF convention in Montreal, Canada. The day started with a three-hour city tour via two luxury coaches- taking in Old Montreal, Mount Royal Park, Olympic Stadium and the Pier.

The opening session and general assembly convened at 2 p.m. with the IBF board and all delegates on hand in the Salle de Bal Ouest at the host Sheraton hotel. President Daryl Peoples made opening remarks outlining the schedule for this session as well as touching on subsequent topics and meetings in the coming days of the convention. Peoples also made several notes on the current status of IBF world activity, finances, legal standing and more:

While activity has waned dramatically in South Africa, an area that was once an IBF stronghold, it has begun to boom in China in the past year. Efforts are being spearheaded to make inroads back into South Africa and the IBF’s presence in that county, as well as the entire African continent. (more…)

Bradley-Vargas for WBO welterweight title

Photos: Chris Farina / Top Rank

Promoter Bob Arum announced today that the June 27 clash between former two-division world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley Jr. and undefeated WBA super lightweight world champion Jessie Vargas will be for the vacant WBO welterweight championship. That belt was last on the line when Floyd Mayweather fought Manny Pacquiao on May 2. After the fight, Mayweather accepted the belt, but it was agreed beforehand that should he win the title would be vacant. Bradley-Vargas takes place under the stars at StubHub Center in Carson, California, and will be televised live on HBO.

Tim Bradley: I think this fight might be a candidate for fight of the year. I’m already calling it right now. A lot of you out there see this fight on paper and you guys are like ‘It’s an easy fight for you Bradley.’ And I’m like ‘Y’all crazy. What do you mean easy fight for Bradley?’ This fight is not easy whatsoever…I call StubHub ‘The War Ground,’ because overtime there’s a fight there, there’s always a war. And I think this fight’s gonna be a war.

Jessie Vargas: Everyone is expecting a great fight. We know that Timothy Bradley and myself always give it our all in the ring. We have the heart of a lion. On June 27th we both have to dig very deep and we’ll see who comes out with the victory.

Bob Arum: Tickets are on sale tomorrow. I don’t know why we’re not waiting for the week of the fight to put them on sale.

Results from Hammond, Indiana

By Craig Wick at ringside
Photos: Hitz Boxing/ Toma-Images

On the heels of his highly successful March 29th promotion, Bobby Hitz struck right back less than two months later with a seven-bout card Saturday night, with hostilities taking place at the spacious Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana. The night was strictly local faire, with young Chicago area fighters putting their talents on display in front of a crowd comprised of family, friends and supporters, most of whom appeared to make up the bulk of the ticket buying. This grass roots promotional approach has served Hitz well, generating the kind of crowds and passion not seen in other sterile, out of the way venues where fans, unfamiliar with the fighters competing, typically do not have the same level of interest and enthusiasm. And while several bouts that were scheduled for Saturday ultimately fell through, there was enough drama and action to thrill the sizable crowd in attendance. (more…)

Salka, Karpency victorious in Washington, PA

In his first fight at super featherweight, WBC#14 lightweight “Lightning” Rod Salka (21-4) displayed superior skills and power in stopping game, but outgunned, Noel Eshevarria (11-6) Saturday at the Meadows Racetrack & Casino in Washington, PA. From the outset, Salka used effective aggression in landing straight right hands against the southpaw Eshevarria throughout the first three rounds of the main event. To his credit, Eshevarria was competitive in landing counter right hooks and mixing it up, to the crowd’s delight, in rounds 4 and 5. However, Salka systematically broke down his challenger with crisp combinations before landing a vicious straight right to Eshevarria’s body which dropped and left him motionless for the entire 10 count as referee Gary Rosado waved off the brutal assault at 2:56 of round 6. Eshevarria exited the ring on a stretcher and was hospitalized as a precaution. Salka captured the WBA NABA-US super featherweight title with his very impressive performance.

In the co-feature, WBC#10 light heavy Tommy “Kryptonite” Karpency (25-4) completely dominated Rayco “War” Saunders over 8 rounds in defending his Pennsylvania light heavyweight strap. Karpency displayed all of the skills of an elite, world class fighter including great footwork, effective combinations, counter punching and a vicious body attack. Each round was a carbon copy of the first stanza as Karpency cruised to a lopsided, shutout victory. Scores were 80-72 on all cards; no knockdowns were recorded. It was Karpency’s first tune up since defeating former WBC world champ Chad Dawson (32-3) on Showtime. (more…)

Golovkin dropped Monroe twice in round two, but Monroe survived the round. Southpaw Monroe fought back valiantly in the third, fourth and fifth rounds, landing repeatedly to the head of Golovkin. Golovkin upped the pressure in the sixth round and already had Monroe in serious trouble when he landed a hard left hook to the side of the head of Monroe to put him down for a 9 count. Monroe rose on unsteady legs and the referee mercifully called an end to the bout at 0:45 of the sixth round to make Golovkin the winner by TKO victory. It was the 20th consecutive KO by GGG.

WBC flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (43-0, 37 KOs) scored a spectacular second round annihilation of #2 ranked challenger and former world champion Edgar Sosa (51-8, 30 KOs) on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Sosa looked overpowered from the beginning as Gonzales was landing his right cross repeatedly.

Gonzales put Sosa in the canvas early in the second round with a right for an eight count and down again with a left. Sosa, hurt, got up and tried to run to no avail as Gonzales caught him with another right to put him down hard. At 2:37, the referee called an end to the bout and Sosa was in no shape to continue.
