Joshua says he’ll stop Martin within six

By Karl Freitag

Challenger Anthony Joshua (15-0, 15 KOs) today predicted that IBF heavyweight world champion Charles Martin (23-0-1, 21 KOs) wouldn’t last past six rounds when they collide for the IBF heavyweight title on Saturday night in London. “He’s not my toughest opponent yet,” said Joshua, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist. “Right now, looking at Charles, he’s a counter-puncher, he’s laid back, he doesn’t work the full rounds. It should be a nice controlled fight. The Dillian Whyte fight was a tough fight. We were both hungry. The guy was very strong to the head, that was a tough fight for sure. So I don’t think Charles will impose those type of threats that Dillian did.”

Joshua also pointed out that styles make fights, “so it might be a different story come April 9th.”

Blackwell brought out of induced coma

nickblackwell300
On Saturday, Nick ‘Bang Bang’ Blackwell woke from an induced coma. Twenty-four hours later, on Sunday, he was talking to family and close friends at his bedside. Nick had been placed in an induced coma following a British middleweight title contest at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday, March 26. Contrary to early reports, though, his bleed was outside the brain – on the skull, in fact – and was minor enough for there to be no need to operate.

He was in an induced coma for almost seven days, given the very best possible treatment by the team at St. Mary’s Hospital, and the sedatives used were gradually reduced over this period of time.

Finally, over the weekend, Nick woke from this induced coma, acknowledged the voices of loved ones and, by Sunday, was starting to talk. It was the outcome everyone had been hoping and praying for.

WBA orders Rojas-Freshmart 105lb showdown

The WBA has ordered a championship clash between its world minimumweight titlist Byron Rojas (17-2-3, 8 KOs) and the unbeaten interim minimumweight beltholder Knockout CP Freshmart (12-0, 6 KOs). Rojas won the title last month with an upset unanimous decision over longtime champ Hekkie Budler, Freshmart has held the interim designation since October 2014, with three defenses to his credit.

The WBA had already ordered Budler to face Freshmart after their next defenses, but with Budler unexpectedly dethroned, Rojas thereby inherited Budler’s obligation to face Freshmart. The 30-day negotiating period began March 23. If no deal is reached, a purse bid will be held.

Previously on Pacquiao vs Bradley

pacquiao-bradley3By Bill Dwyre

It may seem like the promotion for Saturday’s Manny Pacquiao – Tim Bradley boxing match has lasted longer than several of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s marriages, which is not a major achievement.

One old hack has even written more than 20 columns about it. He soon will be looking to get a life or a spot in a rest home.

Still, it can be argued that, while the jury is out on how good the actual fight will be, there is little question that the promotion has had its moments. And there is more to come. Think of it as six more days on a bucking bronco.

Here are some samples of what has happened and what was said about what has happened:

Pacquiao stunned the boxing world, as well as the real world, when he made his now infamous anti-gay and lesbian comments (“worse than animals”) in the Philippines. The other day, in a conference call, he agreed, when prompted, that the comments had been “taken out of context,” because the interview went on “for five or ten minutes.” So, apparently, the next bank robber who confesses and then keeps talking for five or ten minutes will be able to invoke the “taken out of context” defense. Defense lawyers worldwide have been looking for something exactly like this. (more…)

Hunter Fighting Selby for Title and Redemption

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Eric “Outlaw” Hunter has always been like a storm, steadily brewing and constantly threatening to let loose. At a glance you might not see it. He’s a good looking kid, cool with a folksy, high-pitched voice. He smiles often, but that’s just on the outside. Inside, Hunter has been in turmoil for more than ten years.

It all began when he lost his chance to go to the Olympics in 2004. After a contested decision, he was named an alternate for the Athens games, but if you ask Hunter it was the first robbery of his troubled career. So instead of going for the Gold, Hunter, then 18, turned pro on January 7, 2005.

BOXING OUTSIDE THE RING – A BOXER’S TOUGHEST CHALLENGE

As I write this column flying from Manila to Bangkok, my sadness is extreme as one of the dearest members of the WBC Board of Governors, Juan Sanchez has gone onto the path of no return. Juanito as most used to call him was a wonderful person, passionate about boxing, baseball and life. A CPA with integrity and honorability, he served as Treasurer and Finance Committee Chairman since 1994 and has been a member of the WBC for 30 years. Our prayers go to his wife Darys, his family and the so many friends he had all over the world.

Juan Sanchez thought Roy Jones Jr. was one of the best fighters in history, and this has inspired me to write as this week’s topic. Most athletes and celebrities, but especially boxers, have to face their toughest challenges after they retire. It is lonesome to go home, stop waking up to your usual routine and slowly see how others start to rise in popularity and eventually have to take a side-step as it’s someone else who the fans are cheering for. Money stops flowing in, entourages fly away, depression kicks in, life changes dramatically and most of the time there is no one to go to. Bridges were burnt. (more…)

New opponent for McDonnell

Fernando Vargas has replaced Juan Alberto Rosas as the opponent for WBA bantamweight king Jamie McDonnell at The O2 in London on Saturday night. Rosas is out after suffering a sparring injury. Vargas is coming off a win over former World champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr in Brooklyn in June.

“It’s a massive chance for Vargas,” said McDonnell. “It means everything to him and he’s going to bring the fight to me, but I am focused, feeling sharp and looking to make a statement. I’ve been training for lots of styles so it doesn’t bother me. I’m just buzzing to be back in the UK and ready to put on a show. I was looking to move up after the first Kameda fight but I am making Bantamweight well so if the big fights keep coming at Bantamweight I will stay there, it just depends on what options there are out there for me.”

Pacquiao attacked in Hollywood

By Nick Giongco

A white male tried to hit Manny Pacquiao after the Filipino boxing star hosted a sumptuous lunch Sunday at Kabuki, a high-end Japanese restaurant located on Vine Street in Hollywood, California. David Sisson, Pacquiao’s personal assistant said the incident took place at around 3 p.m. at the parking basement of the establishment.

“The man attacked Manny and one of his friends, (Fil-Am) Edward Lura, was able to prevent the man from hitting Manny,” said Sisson on Sunday night.

“He was fast and he almost got Manny,” said Sisson.

Pacquiao did not call the police and just told his security staff to let the man go even as he continued to threw profanities on the 37-year-old boxing icon.

Pacquiao is in Los Angeles training for his April 9 showdown with Tim Bradley in Las Vegas.

Results from St. Petersburg, FL

Jacksonville, FL’s Juan Aguirre spoiled what was expected to be a homecoming for popular junior middleweight Ali Tareh Saturday, April 1 at the Bayfront Hilton in his hometown of St. Petersburg, FL. Headlining Mad Integrity Fight Sports’ “Bombs Away 5,” the main event boxers entered the ring for their eight round junior middleweight fight to a standing room only crowd, which packed the venue prior to the start of the first fight. A big ticket seller who had a large group of supporters on hand, Tareh took his time in the early going. Aguirre, a pressure fighter, looked to close the gap and connect with a hard shot upstairs. With seconds remaining in the opening stanza, Aguirre saw an opening and unleashed a devastating left left hook that knocked Tareh out cold at 2:59.

Aguirre is now 7-17-1 with 1 knockout. Tareh, who received a standing ovation upon returning to his feet, slides to 13-12-5 with 6 wins by knockout. (more…)

Manny Pacquiao Training Camp Q&A

BOB ARUM: This is a very interesting promotion as far as I’m concerned. A lot of people are concentrating on the new and improved Tim Bradley. Manny Pacquiao with his right arm now totally repaired – he has had that torn rotator cuff since before the De La Hoya fight. A lot of athletes are able to perform well with a torn rotator cuff – a lot of pitchers in the major leagues are able to perform well with it. Obviously now that it’s repaired, it is at full strength. Freddie will tell you that Manny is hitting harder with the right hand – even harder than with the left hand, so he is now going to be a real two-handed fighter which is very interesting. I think Tim Bradley’s big advantage is that he is going in with a game plan. I don’t think he had much of a game plan in the first two fights but certainly Teddy has given him one. I am very excited for my “NoTrump Undercard” with the young Hispanics contenders and I think it is resonating tremendously, particularly with the Hispanic community. I’ve done dozens of radio interviews and television programs with the Hispanic media and there is a lot of excitement.

How are tickets selling?

BOB ARUM: The Ticket situation is good. It is about what it was last time that Manny fought Bradley. There are approximately 2,000 tickets left and a lot of those will go in the last week. They are selling at a very good clip so if we don’t sell out we will have at least 14,000 people in the arena on April 9. I am still optimistic that they will all be gone by fight night. (more…)

Callum Smith aiming at September title shot

Unbeaten super middleweight contender Callum Smith destroyed Euro champ Hadillah Mohoumadi inside a round at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday night to land a shot at the WBC world super middleweight title. “I’d like to fight for the World title in September,” said Smith, “but if I have to wait then so be it. I’m only 25 and I am improving all the time. Every time I step up I win, so why not keep going?”

Promoter Eddie Hearn said that Smith would be ringside in Washington when Jack defends his title against Lucian Bute and DeGale meets his mandatory Rogelio Medina on April 30.

“Callum is the real deal,” said Hearn. “He’ll dominate the super middleweight division for years to come. He’s going to fight for the world title and he’s going to win it. He’s only going to get better and better. Badou Jack won’t want to fight Callum; he just demolished Mohoumadi – Jack won’t stand up to that force. He’s got freakish power and he’s a scary, scary man. He makes the weight easy so let him dominate this division now.”
