Mendoza-Fuentes now a non-title bout

It was announced today that Saturday’s fight between IBF light flyweight champion Javier “Cobra” Mendoza (22-2-1, 18 KOs) and Mauricio Fuentes (17-3, 11 KOs) at the Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana will now be a non-title affair. Fuentes previously challenged then-IBF champ John Riel Casimero last May, but Casimero lost his title on the scale after weighing in at a whopping 113.25 (5.25 pounds over the division limit). The fight went on with only Fuentes eligible to win the title, but the much heavier Casimero annihilated him in the first round. Should Mendoza get past Fuentes, his first defense will be against #1 rated Milan Melindo.

In Saturday’s co-feature, undefeated super bantamweight Eduardo “Indio” Ortega (19-0, 10 KOs) will face Cristian “Italiano” Esquivel (27-5, 20 KO’s) for the NABO belt.

Mayweather blamed by Abu Dabi Group for ignoring $120 million offer to fight Pacman

An offer to Floyd Mayweather Jr. to fight Manny Pacquiao in Abu Dhabi this spring for a record-setting purse of $120 million is off the table. M. Akbar Muhammad, president and chief operating officer of Akbar Productions, LLC of New Jersey, said he put Mr. Mayweather on notice approximately one week ago that the offer, made late November by an investment group out of Abu Dhabi, would be rescinded the first week of January.

“We want to deal with serious individuals, individuals who have the ability make a decision,” said Muhammad. “Regretfully, that is not the case with Mr. Mayweather. “The Abu Dhabi group is serious, and I will not allow them to dangle an inordinate amount of time. Now that time has come and the offer is gone.”

Muhammad said he has two take aways from this offer process.

“One, if Mr. Mayweather wishes to pass on, in essence, $120 million net dollars and, instead, fight for hot dog money, all I can say is that ‘The Money Team’ might consider rethinking its nickname,” said Muhammad. “Two, the very best of all time are just that because they overcame adversity; they met and beat their nemeses. That’s (Muhammad) Ali meeting and beating (Joe) Frazier; that’s (Ray) Leonard meeting and beating (Thomas) Hearns. (more…)

Mitchell: I’ll KO Linares after Estrada

Lightweight contender Kevin Mitchell believes he will win a world title in style this year as he prepares to face Daniel Estrada in a final eliminator for the WBC lightweight crown at The O2 in London on January 31. Mitchell meets the Mexican for the vacant Silver belt in the UK capital, and has his sights set on new WBC king Jorge Linares, who picked up the vacant world title in December with a KO win over Javier Prieto.

The London favorite is back in action for the first time since his 11th round stoppage win over Ghislain Maduma at Wembley Stadium in May, and the 30 year old believes he is on the path to landing the world title he desperately craves. “The WBC route is one that I feel I can go down better than any of the others,” said Mitchell. “I know that I can beat Linares, I believe I would knock him out and take that title. Eddie Hearn puts the fighters in front of me and I take them out, that’s the deal. (more…)

WBA #10, WBO #12 heavyweight Joseph Parker (12-0, 10 KOs) of New Zealand will fight American Jason Pettaway (17-1, 10 KOs) over ten rounds on Thursday, March 5 at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau, New Zealand as he begins a busy 2015.

“He’s a big mover, he’s not going to be the sort of guy that’s going to stand in front of Joe and lets Joe tee off on him,” Parker’s trainer Kevin Barry said of Pettaway. “We are going to have to corner this guy, we are going to have to set a fight plan in place of cutting the ring off and keeping the pressure on. What we’ve proven is activity has been helping us in the development of Joe. He’s showing great progress. He’s a very intelligent, very talented fighter with great boxing character and what he needs now is experience.”

Parker, who holds stoppage victories over former world champion Frans Botha and Brian Minto, plans to head to heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s training camp for sparring following the fight.

Welterweight contender, Francisco Santana (21-3-1, 10 KOs) has a new opponent for this Fridays “ESPN Friday Night Fights” show at the Chumash Casino. Santana will now face undefeated prospect Kendal Mena (20-0, 11 KOs) of the Dominican Republic.

After an impressive win against Eddie Gomez (17-1, 10 KOs) at super-welterweight, Santana feels he has the talent to become something special in the welterweight division. “I was supposed to fight Sebastian Lujan and then Randall Bailey but both bouts fell out,” said Francisco Santana. “Now I’m fighting Mena who is undefeated, which is a fight I’m looking forward to. A win against Mena will be a nice nod on my record. I’m moving down to 147 for this fight. I know I can make some noise in the welterweight division.

Rodriguez vs. Rodriguez on Jan 17 UniMas card

Undefeated prospect from the Top Rank stable, Saul “Kid Dinamita” Rodriquez (15-0-1, 12 KOs), has been added to the TV portion of the January 17th Solo Boxeo Tecate on Unimas card at Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, California. Rodriguez, a Mexican-American born in Los Angeles, trains with 2012 Trainer of the Year Robert Garcia at his Boxing Academy in Oxnard. Rodriguez has literally exploded in his last 7 bouts with highlight reel knockdowns and knockouts. Such a display of devastating power has carried Rodriguez to an 80% career knockout win rate in 16 total professional bouts. Fans who attended the April 26, 2014 Boxing By the Beach show at Oceanview Pavilion saw Rodriguez brutally knock out Miguel Zamudio (29-3-1) in the 4th round of a scheduled 8 round bout.

Rodriguez, who stopped all of his opponents within the distance in 2013 and 2014, will look to continue that streak in 2015 with another stern test in Mexico’s Carlos “Coreano” Rodriguez (9-1, 4 KOs). A native of San Buenaventura, Chihuahua, the January 17th bout will mark the U.S. debut for Carlos Rodriguez, who has been successful in every one of his professional bouts except for a loss to highly heralded Robert Manzanarez (29-1, 24KOs) for the WBC Youth Intercontinental Lightweight title last February.

Briggs makes his case to fight Klitschko next

briggs-klitschko-possible300
On April 25 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is planning to fight in the United States for the first time since 2008. There has been talk of Klitschko facing Bryant Jennings, but with negotiations apparently hitting a snag, WBA #6 heavyweight Shannon Briggs (57-6-1, 50 KOs), who has been in dogged pursuit of a fight with Wlad, is making it known that from both a logical and business standpoint he should be the one to fight Klitschko next.

“I really believe that Briggs-Klitschko April 25th at Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York should happen. I mean, I literally was born and raised in the same neighborhood as the site of the fight,” said Briggs. “This is a business. Viewership is a very important part of it. Nobody he can fight right now is going to do the ratings that he and I will do. My pursuit of Klitschko in 2014 alone has in essence turned out to be a pre-promotion for the fight. I have already got the promotional ball rolling by myself. (more…)

2014 Philly Boxing Year in Review

Story and Photos by John DiSanto
PhillyBoxingHistory.com

When we look back on 2014, local boxing fans won’t necessarily be talking about Philly boxing’s two top dogs of the moment. Champions Bernard Hopkins and Danny Garcia both fought twice and made their share of history, but 2014 was a year that set up numerous Philly boxers for possible future glory. In addition, last year showed a glimmer of hope that the local fight scene – I’m talking about fights in Philadelphia – was not dead.

Philadelphia hosted eleven shows within the city limits in 2014, as many as the previous two years combined. This was still a far cry from Philly’s glory days – or even more recent times when an average of about two shows per month was the norm. 2014 showed improvement, and that’s a good sign.

Of course nearby “out of town” shows in Chester, Atlantic City, Bethlehem, Delaware, and other places helped to pick up the slack and keep our local fighters busy. (more…)

Santa Cruz: I’m not scared of Rigondeaux, he was just talking

By Miguel Maravilla

Just recently prior to his fight last week against Hisashi Amagasa, WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux stated to the media that he would be willing to fight WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz in January on just over two weeks’ notice. Rigondeaux went on to stop Amagasa in a tougher than expected fight, but not until after he was dropped twice himself in the bout.

When asked by Fightnews.com about the comments from Rigondeaux, Santa Cruz gave us his feedback. “I heard about his last fight. I saw a little bit of previews. He is a really good fighter. I want to fight him and please all the fans. I’m not scared of him. He was just talking. Nobody can be ready in two weeks, because if I was to beat him he would say he wasn’t ready. I would want him to be 100 percent ready,” said Santa Cruz.

There was a short boxing commercial aired during Saturday’s NBC telecast of the NFL playoff game between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. The spot announced that boxing was coming to the network in March.
