Browne hoping Chagaev fight lands in Australia

Heavyweight contender Lucas ‘Big Daddy’ Browne is planning on becoming a history maker and he wants to do it on home soil. Australia has never had a world champion at heavyweight, but Browne will get the opportunity to change that when he meets WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev. Browne was made the well-respected Uzbek’s mandatory challenger last month and negotiations are currently underway, with the Sydney-native crossing his fingers for a fight Down Under.

“It’s a really exciting stage of my career. I’m ready to become Australia’s first ever heavyweight champion,” Lucas, 35, said. “Even though there’s no date set, I’ve begun training already and I’m really going the extra mile to make sure the WBA belt is mine. I’m happy to fight Chagaev anywhere but if it’s in Australia I know it’ll be huge. The public would love to see me knock him out to win the belt and I plan on doing exactly that. (more…)

Carmona expects fireworks on Telemundo Friday

WBO #11 David “Severo” Carmona (18-2-4, 8 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico will face WBO #9 ranked Daniel “Alacrán” Lozano (13-1, 10 KOs) of Bowling Green, Florida, in Friday’s “Boxeo TELEMUNDO Ford” main event scheduled for 10 Rounds with the WBO Latino super flyweight title on the line at the Turner Agri Civic Center in Arcadia, Florida.

Carmona gave a courageous effort in his challenge of then world champion Omar Narvaez in December 2013. Though he would be unsuccessful, he bounced back in 2014 with two quality wins. This will be his first fight of 2015 and his U.S. debut. He has a very tough task ahead of him fighting Lozano in his backyard. Spicing things up, the bout will be a WBO world title eliminator. Carmona knows a victory will put him right back in position to again challenge for a world title. (more…)

Sullivan Barrera targets light heavy contenders

Unbeaten Cuban light heavyweight Sullivan Barrera (15-0, 10 KOs) is growing frustrated by his inability to land a top level opponent. The former amateur standout is willing to put his unblemished record on the line against any of the top contenders in his division. “Look, us Cuban fighters have a lot of amateur experience so we don’t need a lot of seasoning. Give me one top 20 guy and I’m ready for a title.”

Barrera says his team has tried to get him fights with other undefeated light heavyweights with no success. “We challenged Seanie Monaghan on Twitter and both he and his promoter publicly acknowledged they were willing to make the fight but then went silent. Thomas Williams is another top light heavyweight contender that we also challenged on Twitter. He said he wanted to fight but later on he said, ‘to contact Al Haymon, he handles all my business.'”

“I’m losing my patience trying to get a big fight. I know my manager and my promoter Main Events are doing their best and are keeping me busy but I want to make my move this year,” said Barrera.

From the Tepatitlan Music Hall deep into the border city of Tijuana, Mexico, Round 13 Promotions in association with Gonzalez Boxing Promotions presented a club-level fight card featured twelve scheduled bouts. With music blaring from the discotheque next door under the same roof, a small but packed house witnessed the showcasing of the first timers and mostly new fighters that participated on the card.

Castillo was the much bigger man as the majority of his previous fights he had waged them around the super flyweight limit while Rubio is a natural 108 pounder. For most of the fight Castillo was able to manhandle Rubio in action that never got fluid but instead was full of starts and stops from clinching or just plain falling over each other. (more…)

Nathan Cleverly calls out Juergen Braehmer, eyes September date

By James Slater

Nathan Cleverly provided the expert analysis in the Sky Sports studio last night, as WBA light-heavyweight champ Juergen Braehmer defended his “regular” title against fellow German (and former Cleverly victim) Robin Krasniqi. And the former WBO 175-pound ruler from Wales wasted no time in calling Braehmer out after seeing the 36-year-old retain his belt with a 9th-round corner retirement win over Krasniqi.

Cleverly was all set to fight Braehmer back in 2011, before the German pulled out of the fight, much to Cleverly’s annoyance, the week of the fight. Now 28-year-old Cleverly (28-2, 14 KOs) is aiming to get the fight on at last, this September.

“I’m told the fight can really happen,” Cleverly told Sky Sports. “I believe this fight is on the cards, so I’ve got one fight lined up (against a TBA on April 25th) and if I get through that I think it’s likely that myself and Braehmer are going to get it on. (more…)
