“2 Days: Terence Crawford” Premieres Tonight on HBO

HBO Sports debuts an all-new installment of “2 Days” when the feature segment returns Tonight at 10:15 p.m. (ET/PT) with a behind-the-scenes look at undefeated sensation Terence Crawford, one of boxing’s fastest rising stars.

“2 Days” is a revealing and intimate look at a 48-hour span in the life of a boxer in the lead-up to one of his fights and the next edition will focus on Omaha native Terence Crawford.

His upcoming fight will see the 27-year-old make his debut at 140 pounds.

Crawford is slated to return to the ring on Saturday, April 18 when he meets the formidable Thomas Dulorme from the College Park Center at the University of Texas Arlington on HBO Boxing After Dark. The event will be part of terrific split site doubleheader on HBO starting at 9:45 p.m. (ET/PT).

Danny Garcia taking his career one fight at a time

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

North Philly’s Danny Garcia, 29-0, 17 KOs, takes on DC’s Lamont Peterson, 33-2-1, 17 KOs, on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, in a scheduled 12-rounder that will be broadcast live during primetime on NBC broadcast television. The hotly anticipated bout between the two top junior welterweights is a natural match that should end any discussion (if there still is any discussion) about who the best 140-pounder is in the world today.

However this clash of junior welterweight champions will be contested at a 143 pound catch weight with none of the belts held by either man at stake. Garcia holds the WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine championships, while Peterson still claims the IBF crown. But no matter what happens on Saturday night, no belts will be transacted.

With or without the belts on the line, the bout is an intriguing match worthy of both the attention and excitement the April 11th event has generated. Still, with the two best junior welters facing off, the lack of titles involved has been a bit of a wet blanket leading up to the event. However, Danny Garcia refuses to let this point distract him from the task at hand – to defeat Peterson before moving up to the welterweight class where bigger fights, bigger paydays and more glory await him.

Quillin: I’m creating my own story

By Matt Richardson
Photos: Big Joe Miranda

Much has changed since boxing fans last saw Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin in the ring 12 months ago.

For starters, the 31-year-old Quillin no longer has his WBO middleweight title. Due to boxing politics and what many would deem a poor business decision, the undefeated New Yorker passed on a chance to defend his title for the highest payday of his career. Instead, he sat on the sidelines, was stripped of his belt, lost the chance to make millions and seemingly gained ring rust instead.

Ahead of his return to the ring on Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York against the man who currently holds that title, Andy Lee, Quillin said he understood the criticism leveled at him but that he had no regrets about what he decided to do.

“I made a lot of tough decisions but it kind of defined me as a man,” Quillin (31-0, 22 KO’s) recently explained to Fightnews. “I was able to take control of certain things that I thought were right for me and right for my family. I took some time off. A lot of people don’t understand that because they’ve never sacrificed so much of their time. My sacrificing is being away from my family but this time I actually wanted to be there with my family. Having a baby and then having an uncle who just passed right before I got into to camp. I had to make a sacrifice not going to his funeral,” he said. (more…)

Vargas ready for Spence this Saturday

samuel-vargas300
Colombian-born, Toronto-based welterweight Samuel Vargas (20-1-1, 8 KOs) will face unbeaten former U.S. Olympian Errol Spence Jr.(15-0, 12 KOs) this Saturday. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds and at the welterweight limit of 147. The bout will be on the undercard of the main event between world champions Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson. Location will be the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York. Vargas has been fighting slightly above the welterweight limit in recent years but it was more so to keep busy until an opportunity at welterweight presented itself like this one. Vargas is the current WBA-NABA Canada super welterweight champion but held the same title at 147 previously. (more…)

Results from Mohegan Sun

By Matt Thompson

In the very first show put on by Bosslady Promotions LLC., Super bantamweight contender Luis Rosa (19-0, 9 KO’s) scored a 2nd round TKO over tough Mexican veteran Ernesto Guerrero (17-16, 11 KO’s) in the main event of the evening. In the opening round, Guerrero boxed on the outside while Rosa tried to impose his will inside. However, Guerrero effectively clinched to halt any of Rosa’s momentum as soon as he got in too close. However, in the 2nd round two left hooks scored two knockdowns. After the 2nd knockdown, referee Danny Schiavone called a halt to the action at 1:14 of round 2.

In the co-feature, Edwin Soto (10-2-2, 4 KO’s) returned to the win column after a two fight losing streak with an entertaining 6 round unanimous decision over Connecticut veteran Shakha Moore (11-20-3, 2 KO’s). At times both fighters traded shots much to the delight of the crowd, but the cleaner and hard punches were landed by Soto who was in control for most of the fight. Official scores were 60-54 (twice) and 59-55 all for Soto. (more…)

Beterbiev to return in May

Spectacular light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev (8-0, 8 KOs) plans to be back in the ring again next month following his four round annihilation of former world champion Gabriel Campillo. “We’re planning to fight again in May,” stated Beterbiev, “and I’ll leave whoever my opponent will be in God’s hands.”

As far as the fight with Campillo, Beterbiev said, “In this fight I was able to really show what I’m capable of and my experience paid off. When I watched footage of Campillo I noticed that he did a lot of running. I wasn’t trying to be the aggressor. I just stuck to my game plan. I’m very happy to be on the big stage on CBS at such an early point in my professional career. This all came together very quickly and I hope to be back soon.”

Boxing Buzz: Salido hits Puerto Rico tonight, WBC honors Kovalev

By Karl Freitag

WBO junior lightweight champion Orlando “Siri” Salido will arrive tonight in Puerto Rico. The Mexican warrior and his team arrive at Luis Muñoz Marin Airport on American Airlines flight #1244 from Miami at 11:58 p.m. On Monday at 1PM he’s scheduled for a media workout at the Felix Pagan Pintor Gym, in Guaynabo.

The WBC has made the unprecedented move of naming of making Sergey Kovalev, world champion of the rival IBF, WBO and WBA sanctioning bodies, as their fighter of the month for March. The WBC has been very proactive in trying to make the fight that fans want to see, a clash between their WBC champion Adonis Stevenson and Kovalev, who has been named as Stevenson’s mandatory challenger.

The Big Knockout Boxing pay-per-view telecast failed to deliver any big knockouts with four straight decisions in the featured bouts. The only early ending was Layla McCarter getting a referee’s stoppage with ten seconds left in the opener against Diana Prazak.

Curtis “Showtime” Stevens wasn’t too pleased with the judges’ scoring in his majority draw with Gabriel Rosado in the BKB headliner. “There was some bulls***. I dropped him in that round so that was a 10-8 round. I don’t know how a 10-8 round becomes a draw in a seven round fight. I think somebody got their math f***ed up somewhere.”

Unbeaten WBC super flyweight champion Carlos “Príncipe” Cuadras (32-0-1, 25 KOs) retained his title via twelve round unanimous decision over #1 rated challenger Luis “Nica” Concepcion (32-4, 23 KOs) on Saturday night at the Gimnasio de la Unidad Deportiva Martín Alarcon in Metepec, Estado de Mexico. Concepcion stalked the more mobile Cuadras the entire fight. WBC open scoring had Cuadras ahead 39-37 on all three cards after four. Referee Laurence Cole halted action in round eight so the ring doctor can examine a Concepcion cut. Cuadras teed off for the rest of the round. After eight, official scoring was 78-74, 77-75 and 78-74 for Cuadras. Concepcion tried to up the pressure, but Cuadras closed the show well. Scores were 118-110, 117-111, 117-111.

Featherweight Jonathan Taconing (21-2-1, 18 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over over former world champion Ramon Garcia (20-6-1, 12 KOs).

Featherweight Romulo Koasicha (23-4, 13 KOs) outpointed Edgar Monarrez (19-3-1, 13 KOs) over eight rounds. Scores were 76-75, 76-75 and 80-71.

Beterbiev destroys Campillo; J Rock victorious

Photos: Amanda Kwok / PBC on CBS

If CBS was looking for a splash in returning live boxing to network television, they couldn’t have hoped for a better beginning than the one featuring Russian knockout king Artur Beterbiev. The Montreal based fighter who is way beyond his 8 pro fights destroyed former title-challenger Gabriel Campillo (25-7-1 12 KO) with a highlight reel knockout that had the referee stopping the contest and the ring doctor up the steps almost before the Spanish fighter hit the deck on Saturday afternoon at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

It was the 8th knockout in as many outings for Beterbiev who has wasted no time in moving his name into the rankings (IBF #2) and into immediate contender status. The official end came at 2:22 of the fourth round with Beterbiev laying out his opponent with a crushing right-left combination. The Russian was dominant from the opening bell, stumbling Campillo with his first right hand of the bout and putting him down shortly afterwards. Campillo did his best to stay away and play defence in the second, but Beterbiev showed patience and poise and was content to mount a debilitating body attack that help seal the deal in the upcoming rounds. Interviewed afterwards, Beterbiev he believes he is ready for a title shot. (more…)
