Marcos Maidana teleconference quotes

WBA welterweight world champion Marcos “Chino” Maidana hosted an international media conference call Wednesday to discuss his PPV unification showdown with WBC welterweight world champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather on May 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Marcos Maidana: “I already beat Adrien Broner and I hope I can do the same with Floyd Mayweather…others haven’t been able to do it, but I’m training to be the first one and I’m going to do it…I am a champion and I’m ready to fight for my title. I’m going to train and I’m going to beat Mayweather…I’m preparing to hurt him with every punch I throw, if the knockout comes then great.”

Trainer Robert Garcia: “Mayweather has fought great fighters and beat them all, but he has never fought anyone with a style like Chino.”

Promoter Oscar de la Hoya: [Floyd] is slippery and tough to hit…this is my experience…I feel if I was younger I would have beat him.”

Leonard Ellerbe (CEO of Mayweather Promotions): “This guy brings it from the opening bell…and continues to bring it and bring it and bring it. Floyd hasn’t faced anyone like that.”

Fedesov-Harris collide on Friday

Russian heavyweight Andrey Fedosov (24-3, 19 KOs) will make his highly anticipated return this Friday night in a scheduled eight round clash against former contender Maurice “Mo Bettah” Harris (26-18-2, 11 KOs) at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, just outside of Chicago. The 28-year-old Fedosov was last seen battling top rated heavyweight Bryant Jennings over six rounds last before the fight was abruptly and controversially stopped due to a cut suffered by the hard hitting Russian.

“Andrey was very disappointed by the stoppage, he’s fully capable of competing at the elite level in the heavyweight division while Harris is a very tough competitor and a strong test for him” said Bobby Hitz, President of Hitz Boxing. “The heavyweight division, particularly in the United States is very active with the World Boxing Council title being vacant and our plan for Andrey is to move him right in the mix if he beats Harris.” (more…)

Peter Quillin: God, Boxing and Family

By Mariano A. Agmi

On Saturday, April 19th from the DC Armory in the nation’s capital, Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (30-0, 22 KOs) makes the third defense of his WBO middleweight title against battle tested veteran Lukas Konecny (50-4, 23 KOs). The bout is one of three Showtime televised contests, the others being a light heavyweight title unification match between IBF champion Bernard Hopkins and WBA titlist Beibut Shumenov and Shawn Porter’s first WBA welterweight title defense against Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi.

Quillin won the WBO middleweight title in spectacular fashion last year, knocking down the previously undefeated Frenchman Hassan N’Jikam six times en route to a unanimous decision at the Barclays Center in his home borough of Brooklyn, New York. Since the victory, the 30-year-old has felt the pressures of becoming a champion and realizes that several other contenders are targeting him, some of which also call Brooklyn home. (more…)

Mikey Garcia seeking to bolt from Top Rank

WBO super featherweight champion Miguel Angel “Mikey” Garcia has filed a lawsuit to try to get out of his promotional contract with longtime promoter Top Rank. The lawsuit was filed last week in the Superior Court of Riverside County, California and alleges that Top Rank attempted to “exploit, own and permanently control” Garcia’s career. The suite also alleges that Top Rank acted as Garcia’s “unlicensed manager.” Ironically Garcia’s manager of record, Cameron Dunkin, is considered to be one of the best managers in boxing.

Garcia last fought on January 25 against Juan Carlos Burgos and currently has no fights scheduled. According to court records, there is a pending “Case Management Conference Hearing” scheduled for October 6.

Pacquiao-Bradley II: A fight of two halves

By Graham Houston

It’s a bit late, but here are some thoughts on last weekend’s boxing. I usually jot down the note “Fight over” when I think that a contest has shifted irrevocably in favour of one man. I made this note in the seventh round of the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley welterweight title rematch.

For six rounds, Bradley was in the fight with a chance of winning. When Bradley went to the ropes in the seventh and Pacquiao unloaded a burst of punches on him, though, to me there was going to be no coming back for Bradley.

The clue — a big one — was Bradley waving Pacquiao to come to him. It was a gesture of defiance but it sent a message to me: “OK, you’re getting the better of me Manny but I’m not going anywhere.”

That’s just how I saw it. (more…)

Dawejko to face Rideout May 16 in Philly

Heavyweights Joey Dawejko and Mark Rideout meet over eight rounds—or less—in an all-Philadelphia match on May 16 at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia. Topping the seven-bout card is an eight-round between undefeated junior welterweight prospects Naim Nelson, of Philadelphia, and Jerome Rodriguez, of Trenton, NJ.

Obara, Tobe win vacant OPBF, Japanese belts

By Joe Koizumi

Former Japanese super-light champ Keita Obara (11-1, 10 KOs), 140, acquired the vacant OPBF 140-pound belt as he withstood furious attacks of OPBF#2 Jay Solmiano (16-3-1, 12 KOs), 139, in early rounds and fought back to score a come-from-behind knockout victory at 1:50 of the fourth session on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The Filipino southpaw fiercely attacked the Japanese rival from all angles, but Obara weathered the opening storm with his tight guard and determination. The fourth witnessed Obara explode a vicious left hook to the temple of Solmiano, who hit the deck and resumed fighting to mix it up only to fall again this time for the full count. The powerful Solmiano, with the sturdy upper body, had an ill-fated night. (more…)

Shingo Eto defeats WBC #12 Sermona

By Joe Koizumi

Fast-moving speedster Shingo Eto (13-2-1, 8 KOs), 130.75, decked a very important victory over WBC#12 Filipino southpaw swinger Ryan Sermona (16-5, 9 KOs), 128.75, by a unanimous technical decision (59-55 twice, 59-56) at 2:26 of the sixth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. Shingo, the youngest of Eto brothers handled by ex-WBA junior fly world champ Yoko Gushiken who defended his belt thirteen times to his credit, kept circling and punching positively to pile up points steadily. Sermona, a harder puncher, kept swinging roundhouse left hooks with less precision and failed to catch up with the taller footworker. The fifth saw Sermona sustain a bad vertical gash on the forehead due to an accidental butt. The Filipino southpaw again suffered a severer and deeper laceration on the same place of the forehead that prompted the referee’s intervention due to the ring physician’s advice. The ref Tsuchiya called a halt and took a technical verdict in favor of the upset winner Eto. His manager/promoter Gushiken was so jubilant that he said, “Shingo showed his best tonight, and he will zoom up as a world contender. He trained very hard this time to win this game.” Sermona’s gash required 24 stitches that showed how deep and wide his cut was. Promoter: Reason Promotions.
