Laid back press conference for Pascal-Bolonti

Jean Pascal did not get into a war of words with his opponent at Thursday’s press conference in Montreal, two days ahead of his bout against Roberto Bolonti. The 32-year-old Laval resident chose instead to praise the 35-year-old boxer from Argentina, whom he will fight Saturday at the Bell Centre, during a gala presented by InterBox that will feature eight bouts – including one to be shown on a giant screen.

Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KO) said that Bolonti (35-3-0, 24 KO) will represent a greater challenge than Donovan George, the opponent he was initially set to face. Bolonti was available because he was supposed to fight Lucian Bute, who had to bow out because of a back injury.”Bolonti has been training for three months, he’s well prepared, contrary to Donovan George, who suffered a slight hand injury in his last fight, and might not have been able to do 10 rounds,” said Pascal, who added that Bolonti’s 35 wins, along with his 12-round performance against WBA world champion Juergen Braehmer in a loss by unanimous decision, on June 7, are proof that the veteran boxer from Argentina “has stamina” and “is coming here to go the distance.”

Pascal has a reputation for trashtalking, but he chose a laidback approach for Thursday’s press conference held at the Bell Centre La Cage aux Sports restaurant. “Everything in its time,” said Pascal when asked about it in a media scrum. “People think I’m unpredictable, but my strategies all well-planned with my sports psychologist. There hasn’t been any battle of wills for this fight, so there’s no point in trying to intimidate my opponent. We have another plan for him.” (more…)

Standing 6’3” tall, the heavy hitting Usyk sparred for two weeks leading up to this fight with former multiple time world title challenger Ola Afolabi in preparation for the 10-rounder to be contested for the World Boxing Organization’s Inter-Continental Cruiserweight Title.

He is currently ranked #7 by the WBO sanctioning body.

Sanchez defeats Paredes, Tomlinson stops Zamudio

By Felipe Leon

In a technical super middleweight ten rounder, Fairfield, CA’s Alan Sanchez (15-3-1, 8 KOs) scored a late last round knockdown to solidify his unanimous decision over Ed “The Lion” Paredes (35-5-1, 23 KOs) in the main event.

Early on both fighters looked for their spots with Sanchez scoring from the outside utilizing his longer reach. It wasn’t until the second half of the fight that things began to heat up as Sanchez began to score more easily and often as Paredes quickly was deteriorating. Paredes did have something left in the tank when he scored a hard right hand that shook up Sanchez in the the ninth and forced him to hold. Sanchez survived the round and near the end of the tenth and final round scored a hard left hook flush to the face of Paredes while his back was against the ropes. Paredes was hurt but was able to survive until the final bell.

After ten rounds of action, judges Jose Cobian and Alejandro Rochin both had it the same with scores of 98-91 while Tony Crebs saw it 97-92.

This card was presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Don Chargin Promotions, Paco Presents and Jorge Marron Productions fight card at the Bing Crosby Hall at the Del Mar Fairgrounds just north of San Diego, CA. The fight was broadcast live on Fox Sports 1. (more…)

Bradley: Chaves is a really dirty fighter

Former two-division world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley Jr. (31-1, 12 KOs) hosted an international media conference call today to discuss his eagerly-anticipated return to the ring. Bradley will face one-time interim welterweight champion Diego “La Joya” Chaves in a 12-round welterweight clash on December 13 at The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The fight will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing.

Timothy Bradley: I learned a lot in that Manny Pacquiao fight. I learned I need to be myself in there…I’m sure Diego Chaves is primed and ready to beat me. I’m excited about this opportunity.

[His opinion of Chaves] He’s a dirty fighter man. In the beginning I didn’t think he was, but then I went back and I started watching film on him. He’s a really dirty fighter. Throwing elbows, trying to scrape the eyes with the gloves, pushing down on the head. He does a lot of dirty tactics. Guess what? He hates getting hit to the body. So when I get in close on him I’m going to expect the rough house tactics. Hopefully we’ve got a great ref in there that’s gonna be able to take control. I’m ready for that dirty stuff, I’ve got some dirty tricks of my own and everybody knows what it is. Bring it man, bring it.

Klitschko-Briggs next if Klitschko-Jennings don’t reach agreement

briggs-klitschko-possible300
Wladimir Klitschko’s manager Bernd Bönte confirmed that if an agreement cannot be reached by all parties involved for a fight between unified heavyweight champion of the world Wladimir Klitschko and world ranked Bryant Jennings, that it would be the last American heavyweight world champion Shannon Briggs who would be given the opportunity. The site of the next fight for Klitschko is said to be New York City, which happens to be where Briggs was born and raised.

Upon hearing the news Briggs stated the following:

“It makes all the sense in the world for Klitschko to fight me in New York next. From an economical business standpoint it’s a no brainer. I was born and raised in New York and the venue will be packed with my supporters. It seems like everywhere I go my ‘Let’s go champ’ is chanted. I’m the most colorful fighter since Muhammad Ali. Wlad you said you want what the people want. The numbers don’t lie, as you saw the German media giant BILD had a resounding 72% wanting Briggs-Klitschko to fight next. Make it happen Wlad.

Maxi Hughes: Martin Ward has fast hands, shows a bit of power, but he is a bit too loose

Maxi Hughes says he can rip up the script against Martin J. Ward and land a shot at the British Super Featherweight title when the pair meet in an eliminator clash on Saturday night at York Hall, Bethnal Green, live on Sky Sports.

The Rossington man faces the Essex talent as the underdog in east London, but with just one loss on his record – a ten-round points tussle with Scotty Cardle in April 2013 – and over 30 rounds more than Ward in the paid ranks, the 24 year old is convinced he has the tools to defeat the former Team GB man.

“I have seen pretty much every one of his fights just from watching Sky Sports,” said Hughes. “Since I knew I was fighting him I have had a little look, I know how he boxes. He is a good fighter but he hasn’t had a proper step up as of yet. He hasn’t done ten rounds until now and he has had everything his own way.”

Prizefighter Lightweights III Quarter-Final Draw

Danny Connor and Michael Devine will rematch in the quarter-finals of the Prizefighter Lightweights III on Saturday night at York Hall, Bethnal Green on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports. Connor and Devine met in the same venue in September only for their ten-rounder to be halted prematurely when a clash of heads left Connor with a cut that he couldn’t continue to box with. Both men expressed their desire to meet in Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one night tournament this weekend and their wish was granted as their names were pulled out of the hat live on Sky Sports News by Johnny Nelson and Adam Smith.

They clash in the second quarter-final with the winner then facing either Craig Whyatt or Lee Martin, who kick off the action.

Pre-tournament favourites Gary Buckland and Stephen Foster Jnr could meet in the second semi-final, with Foster taking on Irishman Jono Carroll in the third quarter-final and Prizefighter Super Featherweight champion Buckland facing big-punching Floyd Moore in the fourth quarter-final.

The draw:
Quarter-final 1: Craig Whyatt vs. Lee Martin
