Danny Garcia, 29-0, 17 KOs, held an open workout for the media at his DSG Boxing Gym in Philadelphia on Wednesday. The junior welterweight champ looked fit and ready to fight, ten days away from his 12-round non-title 143-pound catch-weight bout with Lamont Peterson, 33-2-1, 17 KOs, at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY. The fight is to be nationally televised during primetime by NBC.
Garcia and his father / trainer Angel Garcia answered questions from the press before zipping through a rigorous workout in front of reporters and photographers.
Angel Garcia: “Peterson, I’m going to give him credit for putting gloves on. I give that to all fighters. I give them respect for putting gloves on. For Peterson, he think in his mind that he’s going to go in there on April 11th and it’s going to be an easy night for him. He already see himself on top of the mountain, but it’s not going to happen like that. I want him (Peterson) to think like that. I want him to come forward. We’re going to ruin his party. Because April 11th, still undefeated… I won’t say champ, because there is no title involved. Undefeated fighter, Danny Garcia wins again.” (more…)

In the co-main event, a pair of bantamweight world champions square off when Tomoki Kameda (31-0, 19 KOs) battles Jamie McDonnell (25-2-1, 12 KOs).

Former two-time WBO junior lightweight champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez and world contender McWilliams Arroyo trained this afternoon for the media at the Caimito Municipal Gym in San Juan 10 days before of their fights in “The War” that will take place on Saturday, April 11, at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico Jose Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in a presentation of PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) in association with Zanfer Promotions, to be broadcast on Pay Per View in Puerto Rico, United States and Canada for all Cable TV and Satellite systems.
The main event will have Martinez (28-2-2, 17 KOs) facing the Mexican Orlando “Siri” Salido (42-12-2, 29 KOs), for the WBO 130-pound belt.
“We’re already down load training this week, but we are 100%,” said Martinez, who worked with Trinidad and head trainer Raul “Papo” Torres today. “We’re fine, yesterday I weighed 136 pounds after training, so I know I’ll make the weight comfortable. I think I found it more difficult before.” (more…)

Former WBO jr welterweight world champion Chris Algieri has been let out of the cage! He has linked up with John David Jackson as his new head trainer and he is chasing down a fight with Amir Khan, which has been talked about in the media. “I absolutely love the fight,” Algieri told Fightnews.com. “I have been hearing that I am the frontrunner for it and I hope that is still the case. I want to show the world that that wasn’t the real Chris Algieri against Pacquiao. Rather than take a soft touch, I want to prove myself against one of the best fighters in the sport. I am an elite fighter and beating Amir Khan cements that.”
IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook wants to box as soon as possible after his brutal four-round demolition of Jo Jo Dan in his first defense of his IBF World Welterweight title in Sheffield on Saturday. ‘The Special One’ is enjoying a very short break with his family before getting straight back into the gym.
“Saturday night was fantastic and I want to capitalize on that win,” said Brook. “I came out injury-free and the leg felt great, so I want to box as soon as possible. I said before the fight that I have kept the fans waiting too long – I don’t want that to happen again. The buzz from the fans when I was walking out was amazing, and the roar each time I knocked him down made me feel like a giant. I have told Eddie Hearn to get me out as soon as possible and I want to fight twice before the end of the summer, starting at the end of May.”

Undefeated featherweight prospect Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez (13-0, 8 KOs) of East L.A. is set to headline Thursday night against rugged Mexican veteran Raul Hidalgo (23-12, 17 KOs) at the historic Belasco Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on the Golden Boy Live on Fox Sports 1 main event. We caught up with “El Camaron” (the shrimp). It will be Ramirez’ firs ten rounder.
“It’s going to be a tough fight with Hidalgo. It will be a good fight,” Ramirez told Fightnews.com. He had a solid training camp in Los Angeles at his trainer’s home gym in Pico Rivera in preparation for this fight. In the mornings he doing did conditioning at Mt. San Antonio College, as well as cross training in Chino Hills.
“I have been staying active,” Ramirez said. “Camp was good everything, sparring, conditioning was good. I did good, I made weight easy.” (more…)
Adrian Broner, Keith Thurman, Chris Algieri and Miguel Cotto were named yesterday by Sky Sports as the four leading contenders to fight Amir Khan next, but Eddie Hearn promoter of current IBF welterweight champ Kell Brook isn’t buying it. “I don’t think Amir Khan will fight any of the names mentioned apart from maybe Chris Algieri,” Hearn told Sky Sports News HQ. “I can’t wait for Kell Brook to knock him out. Khan is under a lot of pressure at the moment because the public want the fight. I’ve been trying for years and years to make the fight and obviously Amir’s always told Kell to go win a world title.
“We’d love to fight Khan now. June 13 at Wembley is there for him but there’s no real interest from Khan in the fight…they aren’t even entertaining any negotiations for this fight but they have to put on a brave public face now because the demand is so strong…right now, Kell is golden and Amir is struggling to find an opponent. Whatever opponent he’ll choose on May 30 isn’t going to be Kell Brook and that’s not what the public want. People will be disappointed with the opponent.”
Tyron Zeuge (16-0, 10 KOs) has it all to prove on April 25 when the hotly tipped German super middleweight prospect defends his IBF International strap against former world title challenger Nikola Sjekloca (28-3, 8 KOs) in front of his home fans at the Columbia Halle in Berlin. The seasoned Sjekloca represents Zeuge’s toughest test to date and has secured the young beltholder his first main event billing. Despite the pressure of headlining at home, the 22 year-old Berliner’s focus remains clear. “For me this is a fight like any other,” said Zeuge. “Whether I’m fighting on the undercard or topping the bill, my objective is the same – I must win!”
Unbeaten pair Scotty Cardle and Craig Evans clash for the vacant British Lightweight crown on Matchroom Boxing’s May 30 bill at The O2 in London. Cardle has been biding his time for a crack at the Lonsdale belt since landing the English title in September with a stunning first round stoppage of Kirk Goodings in Manchester and he will have to see off ambitious Welshman Evans if he wants to join his fellow Joe Gallagher-trained British title winners.
