Murray: It’s going to be a war

Martin Murray (34-4-1, 16 KOs) wants to prove he’s back with a bang at Middleweight and ready for another World title crack as he takes on Gabriel Rosado at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on April 22, live on Sky Sports.

“I know that I still have a World title in me,” said Murray. “Middleweight was all tied up with Golovkin but Super Middleweight was more so I moved up. Having gone up there and fought the best up there, they are big guys and I feel that I am better placed at Middleweight. Golovkin still has all the belts but he might have to move up to get the fights he wants and that could open things up once more.

“Rosado is a quality fighter and I don’t think his record does him justice. He’ll go anywhere and fight anybody and he’s been in with all the top guys. He’s tough and comes to fight, and that’s my style too, so that’s why I am excited about it and the fans are too because there’s no way that our styles won’t gel. It’s going to be a war. (more…)

Sosa named “2016 Philly Fighter of the Year” as Lomachenko fight looms

By John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

With the biggest bout of his career upcoming on Saturday night at the new MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD, Jason Sosa, Camden, NJ, was named the “Philly Fighter of the Year” for 2016. The honor comes after a pair of stellar 2016 performances. Last June, Sosa captured the WBA junior lightweight championship in an upset of Javier Fortuna in China. He also successfully defended his title in Monte Carlo against favored Brit Stephen Smith in a November title bout. This fine stretch for Sosa was preceded by a disputed draw against then-undefeated Nicholas Walters in 2015.

On Saturday, Sosa faces his biggest challenge thus far when he steps into the ring against California-based Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko, the WBO junior lightweight champ. Lomachenko is also considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

“I feel anxious,” Sosa said about the fight, from his training camp in Puerto Rico. “I want to already be in the ring and get it on with Lomachenko.” (more…)

Bob Arum remembers Hagler vs. Leonard

With the 30th anniversary of The SuperFight: Hagler vs. Leonard just days away (April 6), Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum looked back at one of his most spectacular promotions.

BOB ARUM: I want to set the scene for that event particularly for the younger people who may not be aware. The scene was very important. Marvelous Marvin Hagler had come up the hard way in boxing. He had never been to the Olympics and he fought any fighter that would step in the ring with him. He’d have to go from Boston to Philadelphia and other places to find opponents who would fight him. Through the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives Tip O’Neil and Senator Ted Kennedy who sent letters to various people, including myself at Top Rank, they forced everyone to give Marvelous Marvin Hagler a shot at the middleweight title.

His first shot, I thought he clearly won the fight against Vito Antuofermo, but the judges scored it a draw. A year later he fought Alan Minter over in London and stopped Minter in the early rounds — bloodying him so much that the fight had to be stopped. Marvin was greeted by the great sportsmen in England by a barrage of bottles and cans so that everybody had to hide under the ring until the police were ready to restore order.

But he came back to the United States a real hero then he embarked on a streak of defending his middleweight title. His first big fight was in 1983 against Roberto Duran and then in ’85 in a major, major event he and Thomas Hearns fought a great middleweight championship battle and Marvin knocked Tommy out in the third round. Marvin wanted to retire from boxing at that point but his managers and myself as the promoter convinced him to carry on and in 1986 he fought John “The Beast” Mugabi and Mugabi was a tough hard-punching guy — they went toe-to-toe and in the eleventh round, Marvin knocked Mugabi out.

Ray Leonard had been retired for a number of years and he had been watching that fight and he saw what very few people saw – that Marvin was aging, he was slowing up and Ray, even though he was retired, felt he could come back and take on Hagler. (more…)

Paulus Moses retains WBO Africa title

By Ron Jackson

Namibia’s Paulus Moses a former WBO lightweight champion retained his WBO Africa lightweight title when he stopped the gutsy Crispine Moliati from Malawi in the seventh round at the Ramatex Hall in Windhoek, Namibia on Saturday night. Moses’ original opponent Benoit Vela from the DRC was withdrawn at the last minute after a failing a medical test.

Promoter Nestor Tobias then brought in Moliati who used his jab from the opening round and stood toe-to-toe with Moses through the first six rounds.

However, the more experienced Moses, 38, proved too good for the Malawian, piling up the points with his educated left jab and in the seventh round he dropped Moliati, 27, with a right hook.
He managed to beat the count but was in condition to continue as the referee waved the fight off at 40 seconds into the round. (more…)

Briedis, Huck post-fight notes

Newly crowned WBC cruiserweight champion Mairis Briedis reportedly isn’t interested in the IBO belt that was also on the line against Marco Huck on Saturday in Dortmund, Germany. According to BILD, Briedis didn’t pay the IBO sanctioning fee, nor accept the IBO belt in the ring after the fight. The Huck Team plans to inquire about getting that belt back.

Despite his uninspired performance, Huck says he plans to continue. “I’m too young to stop,” Huck told BILD. “I’m a true warrior. We’ll get the title back.”

After the fight, Briedis went to the hospital to see about a possible broken rib. He will arrive back in Latvia at around 5:30PM today.

Briedis dominates Huck to win vacant WBC cruiserweight world title

Cruiserweight Mairis Briedis (22-0, 18 KOs) claimed the vacant WBC world title with a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over two-time world champion Marco Huck (40-4-1, 27 KOs) on Saturday night at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany. In a bout that failed to deliver the excitement we hoped for, Briedis frustrated the normally aggressive Huck with his power and movement. Huck, who for the most part was taken out of his game, tried to up the pressure late to no avail. Briedis was simply the better fighter. Scores were 116-111, 117-110, 118-109. In addition to the WBC green belt, Briedis claimed Huck’s IBO belt.

The title became vacant when Tony Bellew moved to heavyweight to fight David Haye. Bellew was named WBC champion emeritus.

South Africa’s Mzuvukile Magwaca captured the vacant World Boxing Federation bantamweight belt when he beat Jason Canoy from the Philippines on a 12 round split decision at Khayelitsha near Cape Town on Friday night. Judges Clifford Mbelu and Eddie Marshall scored the fight 117-112 and 117-110 in favour of Magwaca whilst judge Darryl Ribbink scored it 115-114 for Canoy. Canoy 26-7-2; 19 attacked from the opening bell and was the aggressor through most of the fight scoring to the body and head with combinations. However, Magwaca, 18-0-2; 10 fought off the back foot as he used his longer reach and educated left jab to score points. Magwaca went down on one occasion but this was ruled as a slip by the referee. Magwaca and Canoy are not listed in latest rankings on the WBF website.

Briedis favored to defeat Huck for WBC title

Oddsmakers have set unbeaten cruiserweight Mairis Briedis (21-0, 18 KOs) as nearly a 2:1 favorite to defeat two-time world champion Marco Huck (40-3-1, 27 KOs) in their WBC cruiserweight championship bout tonight in Dortmund, Germany. Briedis, who hails from Riga, Latvia, is a -190 pick. Backers of Huck, who lives in Berlin, can get +165. Over/under is 9½ rounds. Over 9½ is -175. Under 9½ is +155.

Both fighters are 32 years old, but Huck is a veteran with more than twice the number of pro fights (including 18 world championship fights) and has mixed with far better competition. He has also been in a lot of wars. Briedis enters with seven consecutive KOs, including one against Dmitry Kudryashov-conqueror Olanrewaju Durodola.

This should be a very interesting fight between two big punchers.

Buthelezi outscores Aviles, retains IBO belt

By Ron Jackson

South Africa’s Gideon Buthelezi retained his IBF junior bantamweight belt on a unanimous 12 round points decision when he outclassed Angel Aviles of Mexico at the Kempton Park Indoor Sports Centre on Friday night.

Judges Patrick Mokondwa (Zimbabwe) and Roger Barnor (Ghana) scored it 119-109 and 118-110, whilst judge Ace Makhaluza had it a rather close 115-113.

Taking into account that Aviles was deducted a point for a low blow in the sixth round by referee Deon Dwarte (S.A), who did a good job as third man, this could have been a one point fight according Makhaluza. (more…)

Danish boxing legend Mikkel Kessler (46-3, 35 KOs) announced his plans to return to the ring at a press conference today at the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers Hotel.

The former five-time World Champion, who retired following his May 2013 rematch with Carl Froch at the O2 in London, will make a sensational comeback later this year with a date and opponent to be confirmed.

‘’I want to prove that I can become the best again. The goal is to become World Champion for the sixth time,” said ‘The Viking Warrior’.

‘’I’ve always said that if I wake up one day and the motivation is there, I’ll take the chance, and now, the timing is right. I still have a great team around me with a chef, physical trainer, therapist and boxing coach. The desire is still there, and I’m ready to make it happen.

Robert Helenius (24-1, 15 KOs) and Dereck Chisora (26-7, 18 KOs) came face-to-face for the first time since their controversial December 2011 showdown today at the Hotel Kamp in Helsinki, Finland as they prepare to renew their rivalry on May 27.
