As soon as undefeated Tijuana fighter Ivan “Niño Maravilla” Morales (27-0, 15KO) was alerted of former multi-divisional champion Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan’s comments, he contacted Fightnews.com to give his take of their proposed match up. “I respect Darchinyan, he was a great champion but his best moments are behind him. I respect senior citizen fighters and I hope that Darchinyan backs up his words in the ring.”
Ivan, who is the younger brother of former world champions Erik “Terrible” and Diego “Pelucho” Morales, is already training for what is next in his career which he hopes is a world title opportunity. He is tentatively scheduled to return to his hometown of Tijuana on April 11th and then looks to make the Darchinyan fight.
“He needs to stop talking and start signing (the contract),” Morales stated.

Although North Texas got hit with a large snowstorm late Wednesday evening it could not dampen the official press conference Thursday afternoon to announce the battle between undefeated WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford (25-0, 17KOs) and #2 rated Thomas Dulorme (22-1, 14KOs) for the vacant WBO junior welterweight world title on April 18 at College Park Center on the campus of the University of Texas at Arlington. The world championship fight will be televised as part of a split site doubleheader live on HBO.
Crawford, always cool as ice, fit right into the elements that covered the outside of the arena right on campus of UTA in the city of Arlington, a sometimes forgotten city in the middle of Dallas Fort Worth. Ironically, this arena sits only a few miles from AT&T Stadium aka Jerry World where another Top Rank fighter by the name of Manny Pacquiao fought a couple times to huge crowds. (more…)

Former world champion Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan (40-7-1, 29 KOs) has recently arrived back in Sydney, Australia after scoring a ninth round stoppage of Juan Jiminez (19-8) in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico in February. Darchinyan’s next ring appearance could be against Ivan Morales. Morales has said he wants the fight at 118 pounds. Darchinyan has spoke to Fightnews.com and agreed to fight at that weight. “I think Morales has changed his mind about fighting me,” said Darchinyan. “He did not think I would agree to fight him at 118 pounds and now he is scared to take the fight with me.” Please stay tuned.

Undefeated WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford and #2 rated Thomas Dulorme hosted a Dallas/Fort Worth area press conference announcing their clash for the vacant WBO junior welterweight world title on April 18 at College Park Center. The world championship fight will be televised as part of a split site doubleheader live on HBO.
Thomas Delorme: This fight on the 18th is a fight for the hispanics, a fight for the Mexicans, a fight for the Colombians, for the Dominicans and for all the hispanics in the United States and here in Texas, and especially the Puerto Ricans. Terence Crawford is a great fighter, but I will not let my fans down and it’s going to be a great fight. I’ve evaluated all Crawford’s fights, I’ve seen his pluses and a lot of his minuses, and once again, all the hispanics, the Colombians, the Salvadorians, the Mexicans, the Puerto Ricans and going to bring that title on the 18th home. Thanks a lot to all, and to all the Mexican fans, we love our Mexican community here in Texas. On the 18th there’s going to be a great show here for the hispanics.
Terence Crawford: This fight is gonna be fun. I can already tell. He thinks he’s going to be the bigger and stronger guy in the ring, which I don’t believe he is. Come fight time, I’ll show everybody that I’m going to be in control. It’s gonna be a great fight and I look forward to getting my hand raised at the end. (more…)

Gausha, 27, was an Olympic teammate of Breazeale. He puts his unblemished record on the line against Norberto Gonzalez (21-6, 13 KOs) at 160 pounds.
