Boxeo Telemundo 2014 Summer Season was the #1 boxing show on television regardless of language

IBF lightweight champion Miguel “El Titere” Vazquez (34-3, 13 KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico is ready for the big stage against Cleveland’s Mickey Bey (20-1-1, 10 KOs) on September 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“First of all thank you for the time, we are getting ready for our next fight which is next month. Things are going well,” Vazquez told Fightnews.com. He’s currently training for the slickster Bey at the Ponce De Leon Boxing Gym in Montebello, California, working with hard nose trainer Javier Capetillo, the trainer infamous for his role in Antonio Margarito’s hand wrap controversy. “We are training hard. We’ve had tough sparring, Capetillo is pushing me as always in the gym. I am very grateful for that.”

Capetillo told us, “This is one of his best preparations he has had training for his next fight. He will come in 120 percent in shape. We’re focusing on fighting a little more. He’s a boxer and likes to move so we’ll work on attacking and pressuring the opponent. I know Miguel is a complicated fighter with lots of ability.” (more…)

Quotes for Ortiz-Kayode heavyweight title clash

Just five days after heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is scheduled to defend his “super” version of the WBA heavyweight title against Kubrat Pulev, unbeaten heavyweights Luis Ortiz and Lateef Kayode will meet September 11 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas to battle for the WBA’s vacant “interim” heavyweight world title.

Promoter Oscar de la Hoya: “The heavyweight championship has long been the most prestigious title in all of boxing and Luis Ortiz and Lateef Kayode will be bringing it in order to win that belt and put their names in the history books.

Andre Ward’s Lawsuit Against Goossen Dismissed

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Holly Kendig issued a ruling yesterday dismissing Andre Ward’s latest attempt to terminate his contract with promoter Dan Goossen. The Court ruled that Ward had not stated any basis upon which to invalidate the contract. Ward had contended that his contract with Goossen violated California Labor Code Section 2588. The Court further noted that the California State Athletic Commission had already ruled against Ward in two separate arbitrations pertaining to the contract.

The Ward-Goossen dispute isn’t resolved yet, however. Ward still has a pending federal lawsuit against Goossen citing alleged violations of the Muhammad Ali Act. Goossen responded with a $10 Million defamation suit against Ward.
