Harrison stops Munguia; Aquino tops Kielczewski

Photos: Ed Diller / DiBella Entertainment

Undefeated junior middleweight Tony Harrison rolled to his 21st straight victory in tonight’s ESPN Friday Night Fights main event, presented by DiBella Entertainment in association with New Legend Boxing, at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Harrison (21-0, 18 KOs), fighting out of Detroit, dropped Pablo Munguia (20-7, 11 KOs) at the end of the second round with a powerful punch. Munguia was examined between rounds by the ring doctor. Referee Arthur Mercante needed only 11 seconds into the next round to determine that the Mexican was unable to be competitive, awarding Harrison a victory by technical knockout.

“I’m looking for whoever Al Haymon puts me in with,” 24-year-old Harrison remarked. “I’m from Detroit. I’ve never said ‘no’ to an opponent I was offered, which says a lot about me. We have a lot of heart in Detroit. I’m ready for a big fight. I got him with a step-back overhand right. I wish they had let it go a little longer. I wanted to finish him, but the bell went off.” (more…)

Miguel Cotto on how Geale was chosen to be his next opponent although he is one fight removed from a devastating three round stoppage at the hands of Gennady Golovkin (July 2014). “Sometimes it’s not easy to name an opponent,” Cotto graciously explained. “They have their own promoter, their own manager.

Pacquiao returns to Kimmel show

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao will make yet another guest shot on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday (April 22) on ABC. This will mark the ninth time Pacquiao has appeared on Kimmel’s popular late-night talk show — more than any other active fighter — in their series of entertaining appearances together dating back to November 3, 2009 (the week before Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto). It was on that night that Pacquiao unveiled his singing chops, belting out a rendition of the Dan Hill-penned hit ballad “Sometimes When We Touch.” Manny and Hill collaborated on a remake which also became a hit. Subsequent appearances featured Pacquiao singing duets with Kimmel and Will Ferrell, and an uproarious send-up of HBO Sports’ “24/7″ reality franchise, starring Pacquiao and Kimmel sidekick Guillermo.

Below is Manny’s surprise appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! following the March 11 Los Angeles press conference that announced the “Fight of the Century” between Manny and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Bedak signs contract to face Santa Cruz

By Karl Freitag

Fightnews.com has learned that WBO #3 super bantamweight Zsolt Bedak (24-1, 8 KOs) of Hungary has signed a contract to face WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz in a televised bout on the Mayweather-Pacquiao PPV telecast. “We got the contracts signed by them, then we also signed on our part and sent them back three days ago. The fight is ON!” Bedak’s promoter Felix Racz told Fightnews.com. “Bedak was supposed to fight today (April 17) an eight-rounder on a LIVE televised event in Hungary and then next fight a WBO super bantamweight eliminator against Filipino Genesis Servania. We cancelled both fights in order to concentrate only on the Santa Cruz fight which is a big opportunity for Bedak to show himself. Bedak likes the Mexicans as he’s 4-0 in his boxing career against Mexicans including two victories against Abner Mares (one in the Olympics). So Bedak is looking to continue his winning ways against Mexican fighters.”

Chagaev Camp: No Oquendo rematch

WBA “regular” heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev is now training with Pedro Diaz after the sudden death of Fritz Sdunek. When and where Chagaev will make his first defense of the title will be announced in the coming days. The plan is a voluntary defense in Germany end of June before taking on mandatory challenger Lucas Browne.

Last week, the team of Fres Oquendo, Chagaev’s last opponent, issued a press release announcing that Oquendo had successfully sued a for a rematch against Chagaev in a New York court. “I don’t know how Oquendo can sue me in New York and how a US court can even rule on that,” said Chagaev promoter Timur Dugazaev. “As everybody knows the fight between Chagaev and Oquendo took place in Grozny. According to the bout agreement the jurisdiction regarding this fight is in Moscow. In addition to that Oquendo received the full agreed purse of $225,000 although he tested positive for banned substances after the fight. Actually, I just sued him in Moscow for returning the purse as stated in the contract. There will be no rematch between Chagaev and Oquendo – unless Oquendo earns his spot as mandatory challenger fair and square in the ring. He had his chance and he lost even though he used unfair tactics. Now he still tries to blackmail me. People like this have no place in boxing and should be banned.”

Roach: I don’t believe that Floyd ever wanted this fight

“We have a great idea of when and where we are going to attack Mayweather,” says Manny Pacquiao’s Hall of Fame Trainer Freddie Roach. “Both fighters have great experience, so I don’t believe that will be a factor in the fight. The biggest thing is that each fighter comes in with a different style. Floyd is a counter-puncher but Manny must be the one to enforce the fight. I believe that Manny being a southpaw will be a factor in this fight. Manny showed me tape of Floyd fighting a southpaw and told me that that is exactly what we are going to do in this fight. I can tell how much this fight means to Manny because he has watched tape on Floyd. Manny has never watched tape on any fighter before.

“This fight is much bigger than when Manny fought >Oscar De La Hoya. Manny is a different person going into this fight. He hit me so hard the other day that I believe it’s the hardest I’ve ever been hit by a fighter who I’m training. I don’t believe that Floyd ever wanted this fight, he was forced to take it by the public and the media. I wouldn’t be surprised if Floyd pulled out now.”

Yamanaka-Santillan Full Report + Photos

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten WBC bantamweight champ Shinsuke Yamanaka (23-0-2, 17 KOs), 117.75, impressively kept his WBC bantamweight belt as he displayed an eye-catching demolition of previously undefeated Argentine Diego Santillan (23-1, 15 KOs) at 0:32 of the seventh session on Thursday in Osaka, Japan. The hard-hitting southpaw Japanese registered his eighth defense–sixth within the distance–by dropping the game challenger twice—each once in the sixth and the fatal seventh—with a lethal left called “God’s left.” Yamanaka, five years his senior at 32, exploded a devastating left to send him badly to the deck, and the bloodied Santillan made no effort to raise himself up only to be counted out by the referee Michael Griffin of Canada. It’s a picture-perfect southpaw left. (more…)

Chavez Jr., Fonfara Presser Quotes & Pics

Photos: Big Joe Miranda

Popular Mexican superstar and former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and dangerous brawler Andrzej Fonfara participated in the final the final press conference Thursday at Crowne Plaza Hotel LAX, just two days before Saturday’s Showtime Championship Boxing doubleheader. Chavez (48-1-1, 32 KOs) of Culiacan, Mexico, and Fonfara (26-3, 15 KOs) of Chicago by way of Radon, Poland, will meet in the 12-round light heavyweight main event from StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. Chavez will make his eagerly awaited return to the ring and first start for new trainer Joe Goossen.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: “I had a great training camp. I feel better than ever. I am ready for the fight. I know that this is a new weight class for me. I realize that Fonfara is very tough and bigger than me, but I am up for the challenge. I have worked on my boxing during my one year off, and I am very excited and motivated to get back in the ring. I have worked so hard for this fight because I am fighting in a new weight class. I must punch harder, so I have focused on getting stronger during this training camp. I have a great chin, I know how to take punches and my conditioning is great. A lot of fighters can take a punch, but I can take multiple punches and not be hurt. I think that Andrzej Fonfara is one of the best fighters in the light heavyweight division. Inside of boxing, everyone knows who Fonfara is. He knocked down one of the best boxers in the world in Adonis Stevenson. Fonfara is disciplined in the ring, but he doesn’t vary his punches. I understand that my dad didn’t want me to take this fight. I had bigger names I could’ve fought, but I think that Fonfara is a great challenge for me and I like the challenge.”

Andrzej Fonfara: “I’m prepared very well and I’m ready for this fight. It’s been a great camp like always. I train hard for each fight. I’m a tough boxer who is feeling great. The weight is good and everything is perfect. I must put everything into Saturday night and I will win the fight. I must look even better than I did against Stevenson. Everyone said I looked good, but I lost the fight. I didn’t want congratulations because I did not win the fight. But this time I will win the fight. I’m ready for a decision or for a knockout.
