Rubio embarrassed, but very motivated to win

Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio wants to leave behind the incident at yesterday’s weigh-in and focus on tonight’s fight, which can still catapult him to stardom even though he will no longer be a world champion. Now a huge betting underdog, Rubio states, “all that just motivates me. That the fans see me for dead drives me to give maximum effort and try with all my heart to go for the victory.”

“I’ve seen that many people don’t believe in me, and even make mockery that I will destroyed in the ring. Before anything I want to say to all those people that the object of this sport is to hurt the opponent and I’m willing to give my life in this fight in order to come out with my hand raised. Although Golovkin is a warrior, I have no fear of what’s going to happen because I have the power to answer him on an equal footing.”

On the subject of not making weight, Rubio stated “it’s not a lack of professionalism, or irresponsibility. In truth I’m very embarrassed with all the people who believe in me. I did everything I could to make the weight of the division, although I prefer this to coming in diminished to a fight as complicated as I expect with Golovkin.

“Right now my mind is focused on the fight. On Monday I’ll think about whether I’ll move up a division or if we’ll plan a stricter diet with a nutritionist. At this weight I’m not in low spirits, on the contrary it motivates me to give my best to reverse this situation.”

Jhonny Gonzalez comments on Donaire-Walters

By Gabriel F.Cordero

Current WBC featherweight world champion Jhonny Gonzalez will be present tonight at the StubHub Center in Carson, California to see WBA co-champions Nonito Donaire and Nicholas Walters battle for the absolute WBA title.

“I came to see the Donaire-Walters title bout bout betwen these two champions. Walters is a recent champ and Donaire came up to featherweight recently and I have to see both live. I want to face the best on my division. This a great fight and two different boxing styles.”

Last year, at this same venue, Gonzalez shocked the world when he annihilated the highly favored then WBC monarch Abner Mares in the first round.

Navarrete lives a life of squalor

By Nick Giongco

GENERAL SANTOS CITY—The life of Rolando Navarrete, once the toast of Philippine boxing, is in a total mess. Navarrete, now 57, says he makes both ends meet working at the city’s fish port but wouldn’t say how. “Dumidiskarte lang, (I am just being resourceful),” said Navarrete during a chance encounter with the ex-WBC super-featherweight king.

Navarrete has been retired from the sport for over 20 years now and relies heavily on a government monthly assistance worth P2,000 ($45) so he could bring food to the table.

But he no longer has a wife and takes care of two kids, both fighters, but with no solid promotional connections.

On this particular day, Navarrete stood just outside the main door where Manny Pacquiao would come out, hoping that the world welterweight titlist would see him and even slip in a few bills. (more…)

Lawsuit: Rahman Bros say Floyd lied to the Nevada Commission

Hasim Rahman Jr. and his brother Sharif Rahman have filed a lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather, Mayweather Promotions, Mayweather Boxing Club and Showtime. Sharif Rahman alleges that he was never told his sparring session with Donovon Cameron would be recorded for “Showtime All Access” and he was forced to fight 5/6/7 minute rounds despite a request to fight 3 minute rounds.

Hasim Rahman Jr. maintains his fight with Cameron went 31 minutes straight with no break and he was later informed there large amounts of money wagered.

The lawsuit further states that Mayweather “misrepresented facts” while testifying on front of the NSAC and falsely testified that the 31-minute fight depicted on “Showtime All Access” didn’t happen.

Jackson returns, looking for redemption and revenge

Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, junior middleweight John “Dah Rock” Jackson (18-2, 15 KOs) will return to action on Saturday, November 15, 2014, at the Quorum Córdoba Hotel in Cordoba, Argentina, against hometown veteran Carlos Adan “El Malevo” Jerez (40-17-3, 18 KOs). Jackson-Jerez will serve as one of the main supporting bouts for a night of boxing headlined by Carolina Marcela Gutierrez (22-4-1, 13 KOs) taking on Yulihan Luna Avila (11-2, 1 KO) for the vacant IBF World female super bantamweight title.

25-year-old Jackson says his fight against Jerez will serve two purposes: First, Jerez was the first fighter to pin a loss on his cousin, Samuel Rogers and so some family-style revenge is on the menu. Secondly, this will be Jackson’s first fight since his shock KO loss to Ireland’s Andy Lee last June at Madison Square Garden.

WBC interim champion Marco Antonio “El Veneno” Rubio (59-6-1, 51 KOs) of Coahuila, Torreon, Mexico is ready for his showdown with undefeated WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) of Kazakhstan taking place this Saturday at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California live on HBO World Championship Boxing. Fightnews.com caught up with the champion Rubio at the Manhattan Beach Marriot in Manhattan Beach, California.

“The time is here. We are fighting the best middleweight pound for pound,” Rubio told Fightnews.com. “I am happy for this opportunity fighting in LA on this card. Winning this fight will benefit me.”

Rubio had a solid training camp in Oxnard, California with his trainer Robert Garcia preparing a total of eight weeks. Under trainer Robert Garcia, Rubio has won four straight bouts and shown slight improvement in boxing more as Rubio’s style has always been to pressure and come forward.

“Robert and I had a great camp. We worked for eight weeks on a lot of details and learning to box more. I was more of brawler but Robert has taught me to be more patient. This is my fifth fight with Robert and the things he does with his fighters are very different from other trainers, he likes to take care of his fighters and prepare them to be at their best,” Rubio commented.

Golovkin-Rubio Final Presser Report

By Rocky Morales

The Manhattan Beach Marriott played host to the final press conference for “Mexican Style”, the middleweight showdown between Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Marco Antonio Rubio. Golovkin will be defending his WBA and IBO middleweight world titles against Rubio, the WBC interim middleweight champion. Golovkin (30-0, 27KO) has stayed busy in 2014 and will be defending his titles for the third time in just the past 8.5 months against the solid Rubio (59-6, 53KO) who has won six in a row and whose only loss in his last 17 bouts was a decision loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Golovkin will enter the fight as the world champion with the highest knockout percentage, 90%, and has knocked out his most recent 17 opponents in a row.

In Golovkin’s most recent fight, just 12 weeks ago, a title defense against former IBF middleweight champion, Daniel Geale, Golovkin was able to walk right through Gaele and destroy him inside of three rounds. Meanwhile, in what was his third attempt at a world title, Rubio finally won a world title in his 66th career bout, with a tenth round knockout of Italian contender, Domenico Spado, to earn the WBC interim middleweight championship.

This fight will mark the west coast debut for Golovkin whose only other five fights on American soil were all on the east coast. Nevertheless, tickets reportedly sold out a month ago for this fight and it will be the largest attendance ever at the Carson Stub Hub Center to see a fight. (more…)

By David Finger

Boxing returns to Hobbs New Mexico next weekend as local prospect Edgar Zubia (4-2-1, 3 KOs) takes on takes on Jose “Shorty” Salinas (5-1, 3 KOs) from Las Cruces, New Mexico. The six round junior welterweight fight is one of the toughest of Zubia’s career and is very much a “must win” fight for the Hobbs native. With two losses in seven fights, Zubia’s hopes to emerge as a legitimate national prospect very much hinge on this fight. Salinas, who also has aspirations to emerge as a world class prospect, is also looking to bounce back from his only professional loss: a tough fifth round TKO to undefeated El Paso native Oscar Valenzuela. Despite the loss, many boxing insiders regard Salinas as a legitimate prospect nonetheless. However a loss to Zubia would all but end the talk of Salinas as a serious prospect, something that the Las Cruces native is keenly aware of. (more…)

Kathy Duva, Main Events’ CEO: This is our 21st show in the series which will end with its 22nd show on NBCSN on November 8. It has been the greatest privilege of my life putting on a series like this. We got to build stars. We started building stars from the very beginning. It is fitting that it is going to end on the same day that Sergey Kovalev is fighting in the biggest fight of the year. Steve was already a world champion but we got the opportunity to introduce him to the United States because he fought mainly overseas. This is the last show I am going to be at for this series. I am not going to be able to attend the last fight of the series because I will be at the Kovalev fight. It feels like high school graduation. It is bitter sweet and sad, but I am also excited about what is going to come ahead. I am also very proud of everyone who has worked on this series. This fight is no doubt going to live up to expectations. In his last fight, Steve put on the best fight of the series. It was about as perfect as you can get. (more…)
