Hazzard to head NJ Boxing Commission again

Hall of Fame boxing official Larry Hazzard has been reinstated as commissioner of the New Jersey Athletic Control Board. Next week Hazzard replaces Aaron Davis, who is taking to another state job. Hazzard headed the Control Board for 22 years before being ousted in 2007 due to a conflict with the NJ Attorney General’s Office, which oversees the boxing commission.

Two world title fights in Tijuana Sept 20

The Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana, BC, Mexico will be the venue for not one, but two world title fights on September 20.

In the main event, Orlando “Siri” Salido (41-12-2, 28 KOs) faces Terdsak “Pit Bull” Kokietgym (53-4-1, 33 KOs) for the vacant WBO interim jr lightweight belt. The interim title was ordered due to the inactivity of WBO 130lb champion Mikey Garcia.

In the second world title fight, Javier “Cobrita” Mendoza (21-2-1, 18 KOs) meets Ramon “Principe” Garcia Hirales (20-4-1, 12 KOs) for the vacant IBF jr flyweight title. That title became vacant when reigning champion John Riel Casimero lost the title on the scale in May.

Wilson holds open media workout in South Philly

Story and photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBioxingHistory.com

Cruiserweight Garrett Wilson, 13-7-1, 7 KOs, held an open workout Wednesday in advance of his nationally televised main event with South African Thabiso Mchunu, 16-1, 11 KOs, scheduled for September 20th, at Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, CT. The 10-round bout will be televised on NBC network TV, in a special Saturday afternoon boxing telecast. For Wilson, it will be his first fight in ten months, after an Achilles’ injury forced a cancellation of this same match up, when it was originally scheduled for January. When this bout was first proposed, Wilson was coming off a 10-round decision loss to heavyweight contender Vyacheslav Glazkov, also televised on NBC network television. Wilson accepted that fight on just three-day’s notice.

An unknown Mchunu bounced onto to the boxing scene with an impressive shutout of contender Eddie Chambers about one year ago, in his first fight outside of South Africa. He followed that up with another win in January against Olan Durodola, a fight that earned Mchunu the NABF cruiserweight title previously owned by Wilson. Garrett never lost that belt in the ring. He was forced to vacate the belt when he fought an IBF eliminator bout in Romania.

With a win against Mchunu, Wilson would reclaim his belt and earn a top-ten ranking among the world’s 200-pounders. However, Mchunu is considered a tough test, even without such a long layoff. (more…)

Mayweather, Maidana Press Conference Quotes

Photos: Joel A. Colon-PRBB

WBC/WBA welterweight and super welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather and former champion Marcos Maidana faced off at the final press conference on Wednesday for their showdown on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The mood seemed somewhat muted due to heat Floyd has received from some in the press over comments he made on the Ray Rice situation. Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe admonished the press over the treatment Floyd’s been getting.

Leonard Ellerbe: He’s become a guy who wears a target on his back. No matter what he says, no matter what he does, people form an opinion, they tend to take things out of context. But it just comes with the territory. When you’re on top and you’ve been on top for so many years people are gunning at you. And the least little thing you say or do, no matter how you feel, things get taken out of context. This guy’s had a phenomenal career, he’s beat everybody we put in front of him, he’s been the best fighter in the world. He’s been world champion ever since 1998 when he defeated Hernandez in a wonderful, wonderful fight, he’s gone on to beat a number of world champions, and he still tends to this day to get criticized for his work inside the ring, which is mind-boggling. In my eyes he will go down as the best ever to do it, and no matter what anyone says he can only fight and beat the fighters in his era…all this hating and criticism about this and that, you guys need to stop! Just cut it out…the reason that boxing hasn’t crossed over into a mainstream sport as a whole is because we’re too hard, we’re always trying to find ways to denigrate, to down and criticize people’s accomplishments and a lot of times it’s done by people who’ve never boxed before and don’t know what it means to be in his shoes.

Floyd Mayweather: “I’ve had a remarkable training camp…truly unbelievable…it’s all about blood, sweat and tears and that’s what the fans will see Saturday night…the first fight was very interesting. Hopefully this one is even more exciting. He deserves the rematch. A true champion never backs down so I accepted the rematch.”

Marcos Maidana: I’m ready to make history.

Ortiz, Kayode, Cuellar, Juanma Quotes

With a stacked card coming to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this Thursday, Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz, Lateef “Power” Kayode, Jesus “El Jinete” Cuellar and Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez sat down with the media in Las Vegas to discuss their respective title bouts airing live on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.

Here is what the fighters said Thursday:

Luis Ortiz: “I have worked very hard for this fight and it’s a great opportunity and I’m not going to waste it. I have seen one or two of Kayode’s fights and I am prepared. You will see my preparation materialize in the ring on Thursday night. Kayode is a trash talker and I take that as a sign of weakness. A lot of heavyweight fighters are in Cuba in amateur competitions, but I take pride in knowing that I am a professional Cuban heavyweight. I am going to continue working and doing my part and fight whoever steps up. I am the next heavyweight champion. I am going to keep doing my part so I can get there. When I need to be a power puncher, I will do it. When I need to box, I will do it. When I need to be defensive, I will do it. When I need to attack and get the job done, I will do it. If there is a specific name for all of those styles – then that is the kind of fighter I am.”

Lateef Kayode: “I feel as good as I did at cruiserweight, I’m still the same powerful guy. My trainer Freddie Roach has spent a lot of time in the gym with me. He has taught me a lot about my opponents and how to take advantage of them. I notice the difference when Freddie tells me things to adjust my game. He helped me with my footwork and positioning. He taught me new ways to make my opponents pay. Freddie told me that if I listen to him I will have no problem with this guy. He’s there to make life easier for me. I will be able to keep composure and keep calm in the ring. It’s not an easy task to fine-tune my brute force and strength but I feel great about where I am. After I knock Ortiz out or whatever I do to him, after that I will leave it up to my manager to try to get me a fight with Klitschko. I’m not scared to fight anybody.”

Jesus Cuellar: “I feel good and ready. I have been training with Robert Garcia for this fight and we had a great camp. I feel blessed that the Latino fans especially the Mexican fans have been following me and giving me the support I need. I know that this is going to be a hard fight. I’ve been training hard for it in intense camp and I’m here to do my job and take the victory home. The fans expect me to show how I box and I am prepared to go the distance but I am also ready for it if it goes faster than that.

Juan Manuel Lopez: “This is a difficult fight but I’ve been a two-division world champion, and I wasn’t going to take easy fights that the public and my fans wouldn’t respect. We know 100 percent that my career is at stake and I can’t afford a loss, but that’s why we came ready and in the best possible shape. I don’t want my career to end on a note like the Francisco Vargas loss. We know what’s ahead of us and what this fight means. It’s very important for me. The person who I thought would have tried to convince me to retire was my mother. She’s been my biggest supporter and my biggest fan. She was there at the Vargas fight, and I really thought she was going to try to convince me to stop boxing. But she’s continued supporting and backing me 100 percent. Of course, I want to go for one big payday and retire. That’s every fighter’s dream, to get the biggest payday and retire. I always said at 32 I’d like to retire, but things happened to stall that a little bit. But I’m not going to go past 34. I want to retire before then. I see a very strong fighter in Jesus Cuellar. I see a young fighter that wants to be the best in the world and a champion. That makes him very dangerous. My advantage is that I’ve been here on this stage and the experience that I have at this level, you cannot buy it.”

Arroyo camp to protest loss to Ruenroeng

PR Best Boxing Promotions, promoter of the flyweight contender McWilliams Arroyo, will submit a formal protest to the International Boxing Federation (IBF) regarding his split decision defeat against the 112lb IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng this morning in Thailand. Peter Rivera, Vice-President of PRBBP, said that in the protest will demand an immediate rematch between Arroyo (15-2, 13 KOs) and Ruenroeng (14-0, 5 KOs), who won a close decision over Arroyo by scores of 115-114, 114 -113 for him and 114-113 for Arroyo. “We will file a formal protest to the IBF because the outcome of the fight could have been different if the referee (Pat Russell) would have acted differently and not let the fight out of his hands,” Rivera said. “We will demand an immediate rematch before the end of the year.”

During the fight, Arroyo dropped Ruenroeng in round six. But Ruenroeng was holding the entire fight and sent Arroyo to the canvas several times, always holding and pushing him. “I think the fight got out of the hands to the referee. He (Russell) warned Ruenroeng several times, but did not deduct points for holding and pushing,” added Rivera. “Also (Russell) stopped the action in several rounds before the three minutes.”

Meanwhile, Arroyo, who lost for the second time in his career, showed his displeasure for not winning the title, but also said that he is determined to achieve his dream of becoming world champion. “I’m a little sad because I could not get the win, but I’m positive and ready to continue my career and fulfill my dream of becoming world champion,” said Arroyo. “We did everything I could, but my opponent was holding and pushing all the fight.”

Chris Algieri is just what boxing needs.

He has it all! He is a thoroughbred, he is a classy boxer, he’s educated, highly intelligent, well spoken, polite, and professional, with movie star looks.

He and his next opponent, Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) are likeable, humble, and respectful of each other. They will clash on November 22nd in Macao, China, on a Top Rank/Star Boxing promoted show, televised live on HBO PPV, in a fight between two WBO World Champions: Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs) is the junior welterweight title holder and he is challenging the Pacman for his welterweight championship.

Klitschko sparring has Joshua fired up

Anthony Joshua says sparring with heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko has him fired up for his clash with Konstantin Airich at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on Saturday. The London 2012 Olympic star spent ten days with the IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO title holder and 1996 Olympic champion in Austria ahead of Klitschko’s now-rearranged title defense against Kubrat Pulev. Joshua has yet to go beyond two rounds in the paid ranks but German-based Kazakh Airich brings a wealth of experience to Lancashire this weekend with 17 KO wins and 153 rounds in the bank – so Joshua expects his time with Klitschko to be invaluable.

“I felt I belonged there but Wladimir is different to everyone else,” said Joshua. “He’s been the champ for ten years, he’s in a league of his own. For me to be where Wladimir Klitschko is there’s a lot of work to be done. I can see myself potentially being there, but to own it and make it look easy, there’s a little bit of work to be done. I feel I am talented enough to become the World champion, but to stay there for as long as he has, keep defending the titles and stay hungry for it, that’s what I need to learn.” (more…)

Floyd Mayweather: Flawed and Flawless

“Whether you pay to see me win or pay to see me lose, I’m the smart one at the end of the day,” says Floyd Mayweather, “because you pay me.”

Before he gets into the ring Saturday, The Washington Post’s Rick Maese writes that everything about Mayweather screams of insecurities: the way he flashes money, plays for cameras, seeks attention. But he says he’s completely comfortable with who he is, with what he has and with what he doesn’t. The real Mayweather is “a family man,” he says, “a person who likes to give back, a great heart, loyal and honest.” The cocky, flashy portrayal the world sees is apparently just a carefully crafted projection.

“You have Floyd Mayweather and then you have Money Mayweather,” Leonard Ellerbe, Mayweather’s friend and longtime business associate, explained. “Money Mayweather is what the fans see.”

It’s difficult to reconcile the two, a truth Mayweather seems to acknowledge. Floyd and Money have had multiple run-ins with the law. They’ve created enemies. They’ve been accused multiple times of domestic violence and abuse (just last week, a former fiancee sued him, alleging assault and battery, among other charges.) They’ve shown little remorse or regret. They spent two months in a county jail for fighting an ex-girlfriend in front of Mayweather’s children.

His track record is unlike that of any other major sports celebrity. For Mayweather, his star only seems to shine brighter. Whether it’s his true person or a heavily produced persona, Mayweather seems to adore the black hat. Continue reading at the Washington Post

In the third major flyweight world title fight in the last six days, unbeaten IBF flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng (14-0, 5 KOs) scored a tight split decision over #1 ranked, McWilliams Arroyo (15-2, 13 KOs) on Wednesday night at Liptapanlop Hall in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand. The first five rounds were close, but Arroyo dropped Ruenroeng in round six. The knockdown seemed to wake up the champ who became even more aggressive the rest of the way. The second half of the bout was marred by continual holding. The scrap ended appropriately with both fighters wrestling. Scores were 115-114, 114-113 Ruenroeng, 114-113 Arroyo.

Alcine was all nearly all but written off about a year ago after dropping his fifth consecutive fight. Shortly afterwards he signed with Journeyman Management who took a chance on the former champ. After two tuneup bouts he stepped up majorly in class and took on former multi-time world title challenger Delvin Rodriguez. Rodriguez entered the bout as a huge favorite but it was Alcine who stepped up and nearly pulled off the upset but had to settle for a respectable draw.
