Khan-Alexander workout quotes and Pics

Photos: Tom Hogan – Hogan Photos/Golden Boy

British superstar and former unified super lightweight world champion Amir “King” Khan and former two-division world champion Devon Alexander “The Great” made their ‘Grand Arrivals’ and performed a light workout on Wednesday at MGM Grand, just three days before their welterweight showdown this Saturday. Khan (29-3, 19 KOs), of Bolton, England, and Alexander (26-2, 14 KOs), of St. Louis, will square off in the 12-round main event of a Showtime quadrupleheader from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Amir Khan: “I love these kinds of events, to be near the fans, because the fans are the ones who make you. On Saturday, you’re going to see an aggressive, disciplined boxer-puncher. It’s always been my dream to headline in Las Vegas and to be the main attraction at MGM Grand is a great motivation for me. People believe in me. Las Vegas believes in me. My career has gone by so fast. I’ve fought some of the biggest names and I’ve learned so much. But I’ve never had the focus and vision I have going heading into Saturday. I feel stronger and wiser and better than I did when I was 25. The stakes are so enormous. I am not looking ahead. There is no way I’m taking him lightly. He’s not a champion any more so I expect him to be even more motivated. This is going to be a great fight on Saturday.”

Devon Alexander: “I’m so excited about fighting this Saturday. Finally fighting in Las Vegas is a dream come true. What’s better than this? He is good, but I am going to expose him with my speed and quickness. He’s fast, but I’m fast too. He’s got quick hands, but I’ve got quick hands too. I’m going to stay in the pocket and fight. I am so confident. The time is perfect for this fight. I would love to spoil Khan’s plans for the future. In fact – I’m looking forward to it. This is a high-stakes matchup that will take me one step closer to the top of the list.” (more…)

Berto spearheads protest in Las Vegas

Key figures in the sports and entertainment worlds have been speaking out on the incidents in Ferguson, Mo., and Staten Island, N.Y., over the past two weeks and former two-time world champion Andre Berto is taking steps to make sure that the boxing community makes their voices heard as well. With two major boxing cards taking place this weekend on the Las Vegas strip, Berto saw the opportunity to bring everyone in the sport together for Black Out Boxing – A Rally for Justice on Friday following the two event weigh-ins.

“We want to show the world that the boxing community supports this cause and this is a great opportunity for all of us to come together and make our voices heard,” Berto said. Scheduled to join Berto at the rally are Peter Quillin, Shawn Porter, Zab Judah, Jermall Charlo, Jarmell Charlo, and Errol Spence as well as trainer Virgil Hunter.

The rally is open to the public and anyone who will be in the Las Vegas area is welcome to join this group of boxing stars at 4 p.m., on Friday at the Las Vegas sign south of Mandalay Bay. Everyone who is attending is encouraged to wear black.

Bradley, Chaves ripped and ready

Photos: Chris Farina/Top Rank

Former two-division champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley looked ripped to the bone while working out during media day Wednesday for his upcoming return to the ring to battle Diego Chaves in a 12-round welterweight collision, on Saturday inside the Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Chaves also worked out for the media.

“Chaves in the ring changes so much,” said Bradley. “He has speed, steps in, gets out, can double up with his left hand. He has a complete arsenal. Will he get dirty? I think so particularly when we get close to each other. I have no problem with whatever he brings. I like to brawl and actually look forward to doing it. He’s a tough guy yes, but not as mean as Ruslan Provodnikov. I am only thinking winning. That’s all that is on my mind – use my skills, beat Chaves, anyway I can.”

Chaves stated, “Bradley is one of the three best fighters in the world – Pacquiao, Mayweather and Bradley. To beat Bradley it will take intelligence, movement and hard punches to the body which really bothers him. This fight will be a boxing match and not so rough as the one with Rios who is very dirty. I was surprised and hurt when my fight with Rios was stopped. I really thought Rios was disappointed in the way he fought that night and that really caused all of that commotion. What happened to me that night was very unfair.” (more…)

Breazeale back in action Thursday night

Heavyweight prospect, Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (12-0, 11 KO’s) returns to action tomorrow evening in an eight-round bout at the Pechanga Resort in Temecula, California versus heavy-handed Epifanio “Diamante” Mendoza (40-19, 34 KO’s) of Columbia. Breazeale, who is coming off a second round knock-out of his opponent this past August, is ready to get back in the ring and prove why he continues to be a promising young contender.

Breazeale’s early success is due not only to his amazing athletic ability and great work ethic, but also to a great team. Breazeale is advised by the highly recognized Al Haymon, and trained by world-renowned trainer, John Bray. For the past couple of months, Breazeale has trained diligently at Cross Roads Boxing Gym while awaiting details on his next bout. The uncertainty of not knowing when a fighter’s next bout will be can take a toll on a boxer in training camp, but Breazeale handled it with the skill and finesse of a seasoned veteran. (more…)

Khan denies he was knocked down by Pacman

Welterweight Amir Khan has denied claims by former trainer Freddie Roach that he was knocked down in sparring by Manny Pacquiao. “No way Manny outclassed me in sparring,” Khan told the Daily Mail. “Perhaps I should send Freddie some videos to remind him of that. But I don’t want to get into an argument about whether Manny knocked me down. Perhaps Freddie said it because he was hurt that I left him for Virgil Hunter – who everyone says is making me a better fighter – but I want there to be respect when I meet him and Manny somewhere down the road.”

Glen Johnson: My goal is to become world champion again

Glen Johnson (54-19-2, 37 KOs) has all the motivation he needs to beat Erik Skoglund (21-0, 11 KOs) on Saturday at the Albertslund MusikTeatret in Copenhagen. The legendary Jamaican boxer knows that victory over the rising Swedish star will put him back on the path to world glory. “Erik is a strong opponent,” said Johnson. “He is a very good boxer with great potential, but I’ve not travelled all the way to Denmark to lose! As a young boxer you want to achieve something and you want to measure yourself against the best. Erik will be motivated to prove he belongs on the world stage, but I’ll be even more motivated to show the world that I’m still able to get the job done. I still have a lot more to offer.”

Johnson, a former IBF World Light Heavyweight Champion, has shared the ring with many of the biggest names in modern boxing including Bernard Hopkins, Carl Froch and Roy Jones Jr. At 45 years old, the ‘Road Warrior’ is not yet ready to give up on his dream of reclaiming a world title. “I take care of myself. I treat my body well,” said Johnson. “Age is just a number. I still have the motivation to carry on. I feel great, and as long as I feel this way I will continue. I can’t say for how long, but I’m not fighting just to fight. My goal is to become world champion again.”

Wawrzyczek: Nielsen can’t handle the pressure

Lukasz Wawrzyczek (20-3-2, 3 KOs) believes the pressure will prove too much for Patrick Nielsen (22-1, 11 KOs) when the pair meet on Saturday at the Albertslund MusikTeatret in Copenhagen. Nielsen returns following an unsuccessful interim WBA World title challenge against Dmitry Chudinov in Moscow. Wawrzyczek claims the Danish middleweight will be unable to cope with the pressure of coming back from defeat to fight in front of his hometown fans.

“I’m not worried about fighting Nielsen in his hometown,” said the 30-year-old Pole. “I don’t think it gives him an advantage, in fact I think it will be a disadvantage. Patrick will be under huge pressure. He knows he cannot afford to lose again. I think that the pressure may prove to be too much for him. (more…)

Bika, Geale, Tszyu comments on McCulloch-Chudinov

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBA #4 168 pounder Ben McCulloch ( 14-0, 11 KOs) returns to the ring on Thursday when he will clash with WBA #2 Fedor Chudinov (11-0, 9 KOs) over twelve rounds for the vacant interim WBA championship at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye, Moscow, Russia. The Australian is a former amateur star who in recent years has been a regular sparring partner of former IBF/WBA middleweight champion Daniel Geale and former WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika who both predict McCulloch has the skills to be successful against Chudinov.

“Ben has the ability to defeat the best super middleweights,” said Bika. “We have sparred many rounds and he has gave me some very tough workouts.”

WBA #9 Daniel Geale, who defeated Jarrod Fletcher last week, said “Ben has world class skills and sparring against him has helped me in several of my world title bouts.”

Former world champion Kostya Tszyu also weighed in on the fight. “On December 11, we’ll see two equally strong boxers in the ring. I was born in Russia, and spent a considerable amount of time and had lived in Australia, but, of course, in spirit I’ll be rooting for Fedor Chudinov. That evening all viewers will see a true boxing classic.”

McCulloch is 32 years old and stands 6’1 with Chudinov at 27 years is 5’9. The Russian is a former world amateur champion.

Former world champions and “Mile High” Mike Alvarado and Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios hosted a Denver news conference Tuesday to announce the final chapter of their epic trilogy. Each fighter owns a victory in the series — both of which were candidates for Fight of the Year in 2012 and 2013.

Brandon Rios: World War III baby! We’ve got round three going on, it’s going to be a great fight. I’m very excited, just can’t wait. We’re ready to let it all out in the ring. We’re ready again. He was saying this is like a marriage, so will you marry me? See you on January 24, Alvarado-Rios, here we go at it again baby!

Mike Alvarado: I’m ready for this trilogy. It’s here. It’s been inevitable since the first two fights. We never knew when this fight was gonna happen. I know it was just destined to happen. Our destiny is here now. I’m just excited about it. It’s going to be a great and classic fight.

Top Rank President Todd duBoef said the fight will be billed as Alvarado-Rios rather than Rios-Alvarado based on a vote by the fans in an online poll. Alvarado-Ríos III will take place Saturday, January 24 at the 1STBANK Center in nearby Broomfield, Colorado and will be televised live on HBO.

I’ve been training in Riverside, Calif. at the same gym I trained at for my last fight, Capital Punishment Boxing Club. I’ve been training for about eight weeks and it’s been going great.
