By Arvin Nundloll

Wladimir Klitschko, fresh off his point’s victory over Bryant Jennings, spoke to Fightnews about his desire to fulfill his mandatory defense against Tyson Fury.

Firstly, Klitschko wanted to address the point deduction for excessive holding.

“We can talk about it a lot but any complaints received after the fight are not going to be received well. I don’t want to complain about taking my points from the referee, that’s the referee’s job.“

“I did my job, you guys can judge and enjoy it but it’s important to me that the Klitschko story continues.” (more…)

If lightweight Carlos Molina (17-2-1, 7KO) is one this is confident as he finds himself only days away from his next fight this Thursday, April 30th, where he will face former title challenger Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (28-1-1, 16KO) at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA, live on Fox Sports 1. Both fighters’ promoter Golden Boy Promotions presents the fight card. The ten-round bout is scheduled at a catch weight of 138 pounds.

“He is a good fighter but he does not have the experience that I have,” Molina said of Gesta last week. “Overall as a fighter, my whole career, I have been doing this since I was seven years old. I am a fighter. Come that night, we are ready for whatever he brings, we are ready to put on a show.” (more…)

Roach: Boxing has been held hostage by Floyd Mayweather and his antics long enough

“Our long international boxing nightmare will soon be over,” declared Manny Pacquiao’s Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach on Monday. “Boxing has been held hostage by Floyd Mayweather and his antics long enough. Manny is going to stand up to Floyd on May 2 and put a bully in his place. On paper – and in the sports books – Manny shouldn’t stand a chance. But neither did David against Goliath. Just remember, Manny has always come out on top when he was the underdog and you don’t have to look any further than his victories over Ledwaba, Barrera and De La Hoya. As Manny said earlier, ‘It is time for Floyd to lose.’ Manny is on a mission. This fight is his crusade. The fans of the world are rooting for Manny to win just like they willed this fight to happen. He is their champion. This will be their victory.”

Today Pacquiao will host a free fan rally celebrating the kickoff of Fight Week at Mandalay Bay in Bayside C, located on the first floor of the South Convention Center, beginning at 11AM. Doors will open at 10AM.

Mayweather will make his “grand arrival” at 3PM at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Doors will open at 1PM. The Grand Arrival Show begins at 2PM.

Somewhat of a crosstown battle will go down on Thursday, April 30th, at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA. Even though Filipino Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (28-1-1, 16KO) hails from Cebu in the Philippines and his opponent that night Carlos Molina (17-2-1, 7KO) from nearby Norwalk, CA, both train in San Diego. Gesta with his father, Anecito, and Molina with Carlos Barragan at the House of Boxing Training Center. Their ten-round bout will be broadcast live by Fox Sports 1 and is presented by Golden Boy Promotions.

“I don’t really think about that,” Gesta answered when asked if it bothered him the proximity of his next opponent. Often they have worked out in the same gym. “Every opponent wants to know, who is this guy, what is his technique. I know they have seen me, they know how I fight but it’s the same thing with my dad and me. We studied Carlos Molina. For me, at the end we are friends. We know each other. It is just a sport.” (more…)

Welterweight Adrian “Tigre” Granados (13-3-2, 9 KOs) of Cicero, Illinois gets the opportunity of a lifetime this Saturday. He will be on the undercard of the historic fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Granados will take on unbeaten Brad Solomon (24-0, 9 KOs) in an eight round bout. Granados also just recently teamed up with Journeyman management. They seem very confident that Granados will get a lot more recognition following his upcoming fight. “Adrian may not be a household name at the moment but he will be after his fight May 2nd,” said Journeyman Management CEO Andrew Zak.

Granados will enter as the underdog, which is something he has become accustomed to. Solomon is not only undefeated but is promoted by Top Rank, the shows’ co-promoter. Granadas is an all action type of fighter. He seems to feed off of these types of situations resulting in some of his career’s best fights. (more…)

Jacobs-Truax, Jack-Dirrell recap

By Craig Wick

Premier Boxing Champions (PBC), the brainchild of the influential Al Haymon, brought its unique format to Chicago’s UIC Pavilion Friday night with a world championship double-header that was broadcast around the country on the Spike TV Network. In addition to PBC, Warriors Boxing and Mayweather Promotions also shared in the collaboration, which featured Anthony Dirrell and Daniel Jacobs defending their respective championships. Despite being written off more times than the national debt, Chicago’s boxing scene continues to flourish and is seemingly on its way to regaining a level of popularity not seen in the last 30+ years. Friday night’s card, and the recent acknowledgement by PBC that Chicago is on its radar for future high-profile fights, clearly illustrates the renaissance that the sport is seeing in the ‘Windy City.’ (more…)

Klitschko and Jennings talk fight and future at post press conference

By John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

After heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and challenger Bryant Jennings battled it out at Madison Square Garden before a live crowd of 17,056 and a national television audience watching on HBO, both fighters appeared separately at the post-fight press conference.

Jennings, 19-1, 10 KOs, appeared first and was clearly not discouraged by his first defeat as a professional boxer.

“This fight does not penetrate my confidence or anything negative towards my career,” Jennings said. “Some people may have expected me to be highly upset or down. I ain’t down. I ain’t upset. This is the sport. And for those that don’t understand, when you get in those four squares, it is what it is. Tonight I fought all 12 rounds. I expected to do well, which I did. But not everybody expected me to do well. So I’m hoping I gained some respect, and I know I gained some fans. I’m not bitter. I’m not upset. I’m not mad, but I really think that I came out with the fight. And you already know what I’m calling for – let’s do this thing again. Let’s do number two.” (more…)

Zepeda stops Robles

By Felipe Leon

In about a week and a half Tijuana’s Zanfer Promotions put together a ten-bout fight card that was broadcast live Mexico on the Azteca channel and witnessed by a less than half full Municipal Auditorium. In the main event of the night, Jose “Chon” Zepeda (23-0, 20KO) scored a quick knockout of hardened late-sub Armando “Chato” Robles (28-4-2, 15KO), both of Mexicali, Mexico, in the very first round of a highly anticipated scheduled ten round welterweight ten.

The southpaw Robles got the call to face Zepeda the week of the fight when the original opponent, Ammeth Diaz, fell out. Robles was on a five-fight win streak and captured the vacant IBF Latino junior welterweight title with a hard fought unanimous decision over Omar Estrella back in November. In Zepeda’s last fight, he defeated Orlando Vazquez via a second round TKO. (more…)

Jones wins; Marroquin’s title fight scrapped

By Jeff Zimmerman

The beautiful and historic Majestic Theatre in downtown Dallas was supposed to play host to the USBA jr lightweight championship last night between former Top Rank rising contender from Dallas, Texas Roberto Marroquin against Marcos Leonardo Jimenez out of the Dominican Republic. Marroquin came in at the contracted weight of 130; however Jimenez was 2.5lbs over. Jimenez lost another pound and negotiations between the two camps and the promoter, Big Card Promotions, began to keep the fight alive and potentially the whole card. Per Big Card Promotions, Marroquin was offered double his purse to make the fight happen, but in the end an agreement could not be reach and unfortunately the fight was cancelled.

However with the backdrop The Majestic and as they say in show business, “the show must go on,” and it did as middleweights Christopher Jones (4-1, 3KO) and Jerome Davis (6-4, 1KO) took center stage in what became the main event. (more…)

Peter Fury: Tyson Fury will be the next heavyweight world champion, get used to it!

By James Slater

Peter Fury, uncle and head trainer of unbeaten number-one WBO heavyweight contender Tyson Fury was the in-studio guest on BoxNation last night, watching WBA, IBF,WBO heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko comfortably out-pointed Bryant Jennings over 12 rounds.

And Fury, it has to be said, was mostly unimpressed with 39-year-old Wladimir’s performance:

“It’s disappointing, it’s a world title fight, in America, and Klitschko needed to shine, but to me that was a stink-fest,” Peter said to Steve Bunce. “Klitschko looks like he’s afraid to get hit. He’s in and out like an amateur, but his footwork is very good, I’ve got to give him that. But he’s almost like he’s on hysteria about getting hit, which turns it into a very boring affair. It’s effective, he’s done the job, but he needs to fight a proper heavyweight.” (more…)

“HH” Hubeaux wins WBC Francophone heavyweight title

Hubeaux and Goles with WBC Francophone beltLast night in the local sporthall of Andenne, Belgium, local favourite Herve “HH” Hubeaux destroyed Marina Goles in just over 2 minutes to win the first WBC Francophone heavyweight title.

The fight started promising with the challenger countering the attacking Hubeaux with large left hooks. Suddenly the visitor was cornered and dropped by a perfect left-right combination to the head. He rose at the count of 4 but unexpectedly his cornerman Mirko Skoko threw in the towel accepting the KO defeat of his pupil. It was absolutely unnecessary and a much too hasty move as Goles was ready and clear to give it another try. The cornerman took all the chances away from his boxer to let him get into the fight again.
23 year old Herve “HH” Hubeaux, now 21-1-0(9), can’t be blamed and did what he had to do with the impressive stoppage of Croatian Marino Goles who drops to 18-4-0(16).

IBF/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 54 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten challenger Bryant Jennings (19-1, 10 KOs) tonight at “The World’s Most Famous Arena”, Madison Square Garden. Klitschko got off to a good start, although Jennings had some moments. Jennings started to cause Klitschko more problems in the middle rounds with his movement and rushes. Klitschko was deducted a point for holding from referee Michael Griffin. Jennings took some big shots in round twelve. Scores were 116-111, 116-111, 118-109.

This was Wlad’s 18th consecutive heavyweight title defense, a mark is surpassed only by Louis (25) and Larry Holmes (20). Counting his first reign as WBO champion, this will be Wladimir’s 23rd title defense. It was also Wlad’s first fight in the U.S. since he faced Sultan Ibragimov in this same arena seven years ago.
