Wilder just fought #5 Bermane Stiverne in his last fight. #6 Anthony Joshua has made it clear he’s only fighting journeymen in the immediate future. #7 Bryant Jennings fought Klitschko less than three weeks ago. #8 Lucas Browne is on the shelf waiting for a mandatory challenge against WBA “regular” champion Ruslan Chagaev, who already has another fight scheduled (Browne took step-aside money).

The world heavyweight title clash between WBA “regular” champion Ruslan Chagaev (33-2, 20 KOs) and #13 rated Francesco Pianeta (31-1-1, 17 KOs) was officially announced today during a press conference in the garden of the 900-year-old “Kloster Unser Lieben Frauen” Art Museum in Magdeburg, Germany. The bout will take place July 11 at the GETEC Arena.

Ruslan Chagaev: “I’ve boxed in many cities in Germany, but it will be my first time here in Magdeburg. With Francesco Pianeta I have a great challenger who had a very good performance in his world title fight against Klitschko and, of course, wants my title. I will do everything possible to win. It’s certainly a good fight. We have two southpaws boxing against each other, but for me that’s not a big challenge. I can box well against both styles.”

Francesco Pianeta: “This fight is very big for me. I could be the first German world champion since Max Schmeling and are also the first world heavyweight champion for SES. For this big challenge, I’ll give everything. It is a difficult task, but I can do it. Ruslan boxed Valuev very smart tactically and really impressed me, like all fans of boxing. Ruslan is a major hurdle for my dream to become a world champion, but I like to take on great challenges!”

In other heavyweight bouts, German champion Michael Wallisch (14-0, 9 KOs), German International champion Steffen Kretschmann (19-2, 17 KOs), unbeaten prospect Tom Schwarz (12-0, 8 KOs) and German #5 Edmund Gerber (24-2, 15 KOs) will face opponents to be named.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao event shatters records for PPV buys, PPV revenue, live gate and more

Generates 4.4 million PPV buys, total revenues of $500 million+

The boxing blockbuster event, Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, shattered the previous record for total pay-per-view buys and now ranks as the highest-grossing pay-per-view of all time. Initial reports from distributors indicate that the event generated more than 4.4 million U.S. buys and more than $400 million in domestic pay-per-view revenue alone. With additional revenue from the live gate at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, international television distribution, sponsorships, closed circuit and merchandise sales, the event is expected to generate in excess of $500 million in gross worldwide receipts. The news was announced jointly by Showtime Networks Inc., a subsidiary of CBS Corporation, and HBO in conjunction with event promoters Mayweather Promotions and Top Rank, Inc.

The welterweight world championship unification bout nearly doubled the previous record of 2.48 million buys generated by the Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather boxing event in 2007 and nearly tripled the record $150 million in U.S. pay-per-view revenue generated by Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez in 2013.

Oliveira looks to upset McCumby Saturday

Photo: Brandon Lluis

Light heavyweight Marcus Oliveira (24-2-1, 22 KOs) will face unbeaten Trevor McCumby (18-0, 14 KOs) this Saturday night at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona. The bout is scheduled for eight rounds with Top Rank promoting. McCumby is a local favorite and the promoter’s fighter, so Oliveira feels that he’ll have to win decisively to leave Phoenix with the victory. He says he’s up for the challenge.

Oliveira was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil but has lived in the U.S. for about five years. He was initially living in Florida while being promoted by Don King Productions but has since moved to Southern California following his departure from DKP.

Gennady Golovkin “Haters” Interview

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“The haters interview” idea is to put together as many constantly repeated negative comments and present them to people who are willing to actually answer them. “I always have a good answer for haters’ comments. Let’s clear some air,” said Tom Loeffler, K2 managing director and promoter of middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (32-0, 29 KOs) when confronted with this idea. Here we go…

Hey GGG: you’re fighting a lot, it’s good, but when you will fight some real opponents?

TL: As soon as real opponents will agree to fight Gennady. The difference between Gennady and other champions is that GGG knocks people out. This is why other fighters, with something to risk, avoid him at all costs. Even with offers from HBO, their budget, we still are not able to get so-called “big names.” I think it will change this year. We see a lot of action in the middleweight division, we’ll see what will happen with Canelo. Short answer is – too much risk. (more…)
