Pressure mounting on Amir Khan to take all-British mega-fight with Kell Brook

By James Slater

Aside from a super-bantamweight unification meeting between rival champions Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg, an Amir Khan-Kell Brook showdown is arguably the most talked about all-British super-fight that could be made this year. IBF welterweight champion Brook – who looked sensational in becoming the first man to halt Jo Jo Dan in last night’s Sheffield homecoming – again called out former 140-pound king Khan, suggesting the fight would “sell out Wembley” if it happened this June.

Brook, however, says he is sure he would KO Khan were the fight to happen and that the only way Khan will take the fight is if the Bolton man buckles under public demand for the fight.

“I don’t know why he hasn’t taken the fight. It baffles me,” Brook told Sky Sports News on the subject of a clash with Khan. “He knows he’s delicate around the whiskers, as I keep saying. It’s just a matter of time before he’s forced into that fight because of the public demand, and we’ll see him on the canvas once again.” (more…)

Quigley captures Virginia Welterweight title; Jeter scores second-round knockout in Springfield, VA

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

The promotional combination of Jeter Promotions and RBA Promotions brought a standing-room only crowd to the ABC Sports Complex in Springfield, VA Saturday night to witness 11 exciting bouts.

The main event saw undefeated Montgomery Village, MD welterweight Gerome “Showstopper” Quigley score a fifth-round knockout over Richard “Tiger” Lee Hall of Rocky Mount, NC to win the Virginia State welterweight title. Quigley was very precise with his jab and that set up his power shots including a vicious counter left hook that dropped Hall for the knockout at 2:30 of the fifth round. Quigley is now 7-0, six KO’s while Hall’s record drops to 10-23-3, six KO’s. Despite neither man hailing from Virginia, both men have competed in the Commonwealth in their careers, making them eligible for the state title. (more…)

Jimenez survives scare

By Craig Wick at ringside

At the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana Saturday night, Chicago prospect, Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez (17-0, 11 KOs) overcame a huge knockdown in the opening round only to roar back and stop the dangerous Kevin Engel (20-12, 16 KOs) St. Louis, Missouri in round two of a scheduled ten round super middleweight contest. Jimenez, scheduled to face the undefeated Jesse Hart of Philadelphia on the undercard of the May 2nd Mayweather vs Pacquiao blockbuster, nearly saw that opportunity derailed courtesy of a huge, straight right hand by Engel midway through round one. Jimenez amazingly survived the round and midway through round two launched a left hook to the head of Elder that dropped him in a neutral corner, unable to beat the count. Time of the stoppage was 1:46.

Russell dominates, KOs Gonzalez to win WBC featherweight title

By Tracy Morin at ringside

In the main event from Palms Resort Casino in Las Vegas, Jhonny Gonzalez (57-9, 48 KOs) entered the ring to defend his WBC featherweight belt against Gary Russell (26-1, 15 KOs), who was eager to redeem himself by claiming a win in his second shot at a title. Russell flashed his considerable hand speed from the get-go, landing mostly jabs in the first round, but after a slow start Gonzalez was more apt to throw in the second and started to find his tactical-minded target. As they both traded power shots in the third, the action looked to be heating up, until a straight left hand-right hook combo put Gonzalez down just before the bell. Russell followed up furiously in the fourth with a barrage of combinations punctuated by a left hook that turned Gonzelez’ legs to rubber and put him down again–and this time, he was very unsteady on his feet when he stood up. Russell returned to work, throwing more lightning-quick combos and putting Gonzalez down for a third time with a left hook and right uppercut that pitched his opponent forward. Referee Tony Weeks stepped in and called the bout off at 0:57 of round 4. (more…)

Olubowale was in command for the first four rounds and dropped Ruddock at the very end of round four. In round five, Ruddock connected with an uppercut that floored Olubwale! Olubwale beat the count, but wobbled when he regained his feet and the bout was very quickly waved off.

Both Brook and promoter Eddie Hearn called out Amir Khan.

“It was truly amazing to walk out in front of all my fans,” said Brook. “I didn’t think I would ever box again but here I am filling arenas. I can’t put into words what it means to be back defending my World title. “It was hard today holding it together. I felt this is where I belong.

Kell Brook says he’s ready to prove he’s an elite level fighter when he defends his IBF world welterweight title against number one mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan tomorrow night at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, live on Showtime. Brook is back in action following a rollercoaster ride in the last eight months, ripping the title from Shawn Porter in Los Angeles in August before a life-threatening attack on holiday in Spain just weeks later. ‘The Special One’ recovered from the attack and was told he would not only walk again but would be able to resume his career, and the Sheffield star has been on fire in the gym knowing that he’s back in the groove and at the top table of the lucrative Welterweight division.

“Every day has been a challenge but we have done it,” said Brook, who scaled 10st 5lbs 9oz at today’s weigh-in. “It’s amazing for me to defend the World title in Sheffield, with Michael Buffer announcing me into the ring, I will be stood there knowing that I was meant to do this and I belong at the elite level.

Cruiserweight Ovill McKenzie (24-12, 12 KOs) retained his British and Commonwealth belts in a grueling battle with younger rival Matty Askin (17-3, 10 KOs) by majority decision on Friday night at the famed York Hall on London, England. Both men had points deducted, Ovill in round five for hitting behind the head, and Askin in round seven and eight for holding. Despite a lot of holding in the fight, both men unloaded big shots on each other, but in a dramatic tenth round it looked like Ovill was about to stop Askin after hurting him with a big right hand, but couldn’t land the finishing blow. Askin fought back and lasted the final two rounds to hear the bell. Scores were 116-109, 115-111, McKenzie, 11-113 Askin.

McKenzie said, “It was a very tough fight and Askin really pushed me to the end. I want the world title fight next to complete my career, WBO Champion Marco Huck is the man that I want.”

Golden Boy sues Jhonny Gonzalez

According to Golden Boy Promotions, boxer Jhonny Gonzalez and his Mexican promoter Promociones del Pueblo conspired with manager/promoter Al Haymon to violate Golden Boy’s exclusive rights to promote Gonzalez, a bombshell complaint filed today against the fighter and the promotional company contends.

Golden Boy alleges that despite repeated attempts, Gonzalez, Promociones del Pueblo and Haymon repeatedly refused to put on tomorrow night’s fight between Gonzalez and Gary Russell, Jr., until they cut Golden Boy out of the process, clearly violating the agreement between the boxer and promoter.

“Golden Boy’s contract with Jhonny Gonzalez couldn’t be clearer – the company has exclusive promotional rights for two years or four fights, and neither of those milestones has been reached to date,” said Golden Boy Spokesman Stefan Friedman. “Furthermore, the motive behind the defendants adamant and longtime refusal to match Gonzalez with Gary Russell, Jr is now plain for the world to see. We will vigorously fight to ensure our contract is enforced.” (more…)

More on Stevenson-Kovalev Purse Bid

The WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO light heavyweight unification fight between Adonis “Superman” Stevenson and Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev took another important step when the WBC has ordered a purse bid to take place April 17 in order to determine the promoter of this major event. Initially requested by Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) to insure the required time to prepare for a major event like this super fight, the WBC agreed to host the purse bid on Apr. 17 in Mexico.

The winner of this purse bid will have an advantage over the other promoter in terms of determining the date, place and television network for the light heavyweight showdown. Each group will split the bid equally on a 50-50 basis.

Before the Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) vs. Kovalev (27-0-1, 24 KOs) rumble can happen, though, both fighters must win their next bout. Stevenson, the Haitian-born Quebecer, has to successfully defend his WBC and The Ring crowns April 4 in Quebec City against Cameroon native Sakio Bika (32-6-3, 21 KOs), while Kovalev has 90 days to execute a mandatory defense of his IBF belt against Frenchman Nadjib Mohammedi (37-3, 23 KOs) at a place to be determined.

Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada: “Asenjo is dangerous. A strong boxer who hits hard and is left handed, so we’ll be very careful from the beginning of the fight, but it’s a style that we know and we’ve trained well for.”

Rommel Asenjo: “I am very happy to come to Mexico to fight with someone as iconic in the division as Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada. And in spite of the fact that I received the offer to fight just two weeks ago, I’ve been training since December for a fight that was originally scheduled in South Africa on March 21. All of us who are in boxing and in the flyweight division who “Gallo” Estrada is. He’s a great champion, but in spite of that we have been well prepared. “Gallo” Estrada is my idol. I didn’t think I’d have the opportunity to fight him and this is a good opportunity to test how good I am fighting against the best in the world.”
