Joshua’s first world title defense set for June 25

Anthony Joshua MBE will defend his IBF world heavyweight title at London’s O2 Arena on June 25. Joshua landed the belt at the same venue last month, dispatching Charles Martin inside two rounds. The 2012 Olympic gold medalist returns to the scene of that win for his first defence, with further information on his opponent and ticket sale dates to be released next week.

“If there is a date to get in your diary its June 25th – first title defense, The O2,” said Joshua. “Opponent to be announced but I just spoke to coach and I told him I am feeling great and I can’t wait to get back in to camp. I want to be active so that is why I chose the closest date. I appreciate you guys and I can’t wait to see you again and put on a great performance.”

WBC to review Kimweri-Petalcorin fight

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Promoter Peter Maniatis has received conformation that the WBC will review the controversial fight between former WBA interim light flyweight champion Randy Petalcorin and Omar Kimweri. Kimweri claimed the WBC flyweight silver title by split decision in the April 15th bout, but the Petalcorin camp argues that referee Malcolm Bulmar did not credit Petalcorin with four knockdowns in the fight.

A letter from WBC Secretary General Robert Lenhardt reads:

Please receive this confirmation that the WBC has received and registered an official protest from Mr. Peter Maniatis, co-manager of Randy Petalcorin, regarding the WBC Silver Championship held April 15th in Melbourne, versus Omari Kimweri.

In response, the WBC has created a committee that will review this case, as it is our duty to review the matter and issue a ruling to resolve the controversies in this matter. The committee is headed by the undersigned WBC Secretary General, Robert Lenhardt. (more…)

Amagasa thanks for English sandwich after fight

Report, Photo by Joe Koizumi

Any loser is dejected and disgusted after a bitter defeat. Japanese featherweight Hisashi Amagasa lost a unanimous decision (117-111, 118-111, 120-107) to unbeaten defending champ Josh Warrington in quest of the WBC international 126-pound belt las Saturday in Leeds, UK. The 5’11” Amagasa was the game warrior that surprisingly decked prohibitive favorite Guklermo Rigondeaux twice prior to his eleventh round stoppage on the New Year Eve in 2014. Even though the Sky TV saw it so close as 115-113 for the local favorite, Amagasa himself and his team all admitted Warrington’s victory as well as his defeat. The victor Josh kindly visited Amagasa’s dressing room afterward to congratulate his good fight and encourage the loser’s future.

No less than one hour and a half after the fight for having his optical cut sewed and a doping test taking time, Team Amagasa, all tired and hungry, barely returned to Radisson Blu Hotel, a gorgeous hotel for visitors from Japan, just before 1 AM after midnight. All restaurants had been already closed and they had no other choice but to order some food and drinks by room service. Only five minutes after the battered and bruised Amagasa came into his room, a hotel waiter brought plenty of deluxe sandwiches on big plates supplied by the promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Promotions. Team Amagasa truly appreciated such unexpectedly warm post-fight treatment. (more…)

GGG Open Media Workout at Wild Card West Gym

Report/Video/Photo: Przemek Garczarczyk

WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (34-0, 31 KOs) decided to do his usual (almost) nothing to hide, full fledged training session with Abel Sanchez, while his opponent Dominic Wade (18-0, 12 KOs) hopefully wanted to save his best for Saturday night when both fighters will face each other at The Forum in Los Angeles (live on HBO, 10 PM ET).

The same happened with the co-main event, but this time the champion, Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (44-0, 38 KOs), just went through the motions. However, his 10 minutes of very slow-motion tempo of shadowboxing will not discourage anyone from watching always explosive Chocolatito against his Puerto Rican rival McWilliams Arroyo (16-2, 14 KOs). Arroyo went the opposite way – for more than an hour he was trying to convince more than 50 reporters why he, like Wade, is ready for an monumental upset.

Gamboa, 50 Cent reconcile as Gamboa sets sights on world title in 2016

gamboa-sms
By David Finger

The at times acrimonious contract dispute between former featherweight champion of the world Yuriokis Gamboa and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s SMS Promotions has ended amicably this month, with Gamboa and SMS Promotions having reconciled their differences.

Gamboa, who will continue to fight under the SMS banner, did however shake up his management team. Gamboa recently split with advisors Ricardo and Luis De Cubas as part of an amicable settlement, and has subsequently signed Zeferino Ramirez to take over as advisor. Ramirez was able to find a compromise to the contract dispute that left all parties happy and looking forward to the future.

“There are not a lot of win-win situations in boxing,” Ramirez said, “but this certainly classifies as one of them. SMS Promotions is a tremendous organization and we are looking forward to continuing our relationship with them. I am very excited about the future and I think both SMS and Gamboa will have a breakout year in 2016.” (more…)

Redkach, Cruz discuss knockdown-filled draw

Lightweights Ivan Redkach (19-1-1, 15 KOs) and Luis Cruz (22-4-1, 16 KOs) fought to a split draw in a bout where both scored knockdowns Tuesday night at Sands Bethlehem Events Center in Bethlehem, PA. Here’s what they had to say afterward:

Ivan Redkach: “I think I won, but it was a good fight. The knockdown I suffered was me losing my balance. I felt I controlled the fight because I knocked him down twice. I thought I could have stopped him after the first knockdown. I am not going to argue with the decision but I feel I won the fight.”

Luis Cruz: “I thought the last knockdown was a slip. That was the difference between the draw and my win. I hurt him. I had the power. I tried to work round-by-round. I feel that I won six rounds and that the knockdown cost me the win. I thought I fought well. The draw was better than a loss. Why not a rematch? He is strong and dangerous. He hits hard but I know I am better than him.”

Wade aims to shut down GGG-Canelo plans

WBA/IBF middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin (34-0, 31 KOs) is currently a whopping 125:1 favorite to defeat IBF mandatory challenger Dominic Wade (18-0, 12 KOs) on Saturday night in Los Angeles, but amidst all the talk of a potential GGG-Canelo matchup, Wade thinks he’s being overlooked.

“No one is expecting what I got, or what I can do,” Wade told reporters. “So I think everybody’s kind of underestimating what I can do and how I perform…it kind of motivates me a little bit due to everybody’s just looking past me already. Nobody really gave me a chance, so everybody’s kind of looking past trying to see the GGG and Canelo fight, but you know you never know what happens in this fight. Maybe I’ll be the one to shut it all down!”

McGroom, a terrific amateur, was a three-time National Golden Glove light heavyweight champion. As a professional, he won an WBO/NABO title in 1999 and challenged Vassiliy Jirov for a world title in 2001. He retired in 2004 with a final record of 19-9-3, 10 KOs. Terry just turned 50 last month.

Redkach, Cruz battle to a draw

In the main event, lightweights Ivan Redkach, 19-1-1, 15 KOs, and Luis Cruz, 22-4-1, 16 KOs, fought to a 10-round draw. Cruz, of Puerto Rico, dropped Redkach in round two, and Redkach, Los Angeles, returned the favor in rounds eight and nine. It was a close fight, but Redkach’s power appeared to give him the edge down the stretch. However the official scores were deadlocked at 94-93 for Redkach, 94-93 for Cruz, and 94-94 even.

In a brutal middleweight slugfest, Immanuel Aleem, Richmond, VA, won an 8-round unanimous decision over rugged New Yorker Jonathan Cepeda to remain undefeated, 16-0, 9 KOs. The fight was a two-way war. However in the second half, Aleem landed freely and hurt Cepeda, 17-2, 15 KOs, several times. The game fighter from NY stayed in the fight with his own hard punches, but could not do enough to win rounds. All three judges favored Aleem 79-73.

In the first of three nationally televised (FOX Sports 1) bouts from the Sands Event Center, middleweight Junior Castillo, Houston, TX, edged Kyrone Davis of Wilmington, DE in their 8-round match of undefeated prospects. Castillo, (10-0, 9 KOs), dropped Davis, (10-1, 4 KOs), with a left in round four, but Davis fought back well to make the bout close. In the end, Castillo won the unanimous decision by scores of 76-75, 77-74 and 78-73. (more…)

Canelo Alvarez: GGG is in my future plans…I’m just not sure when

By Karl Freitag

WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KOs) hosted a media conference call on Tuesday ahead of his clash with former two-time world champion Amir “King” Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) on May 7 at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

[On the fight with Amir Khan] There’s always going to be critics. There are people who are supporting you, there are always people who are against you. I really don’t worry about that. I never underestimate anyone in the ring because anything can happen. My job is to be prepared for the best possible fighter so I can give a great performance.

[On watching Golovkin-Wade on HBO Saturday] If I have the time, if I’m free on Saturday night I’ll watch it. If not, I’ll probably record it and watch it later. I follow boxing so most likely I’m gonna watch it.

[On fighting GGG next] It’s in my future plans. It’s definitely in my future plans. I want to have that fight. That’s the fight I want. I want to give that to the fans. I’m just not sure when. Right now I’m focused on Amir Khan. That’s my fight. I want to fight three times this year. That’s my plan, but anything can happen in this fight with Amir Khan. Sometimes you have a plan and it changes. So I’m focused 100% on Amir Khan, and we’ll see right after that.

[On possibly getting stripped if he doesn’t fight GGG next] I’m not even thinking about that. I’m preparing for this fight on May 7. I’m not even thinking about that. After the fight we’ll see. We’ll decide what’s the best course of action. As of now it’s not even on my mind, hasn’t crossed my mind.

Glowacki camp mulls over next step

Leon Margules, president of Warriors Boxing and co-promoter (with Polish trio Andrzej Wasilewski, Tomasz Babilonski and Piotr Werner/Sferis Promotions/Babilon Promotions), who six months ago decided that was worth the risk to match undefeated Polish cruiserweight Krzysztof “The Head” Glowacki with legendary Marco Huck, was proven right again. Glowacki, after another spectacular performance, defended his WBO title at the Barclays Center against former IBF champ Steve Cunningham during Saturday’s PBC on NBC broadcast. “As a promoter, I want to make great television – this is what promoters do. Glowacki is a terrific fighter. When it comes to his future we have to wait until many of the important fights in the cruiserweight division will be completed over the next month of so,” said Margules, who does not rule out any fight for his world champion – from mandatory defense to unification bout.
