Do you really think this is Pacquiao’s last fight?

“I personally don’t know if this will be Manny’s last fight but he is training like it’s going to be his last fight. Manny has achieved so much in his boxing career and if this is going to be his swan song I know he wants to go out blazing with a spectacular performance. He’s pouring everything into this training. If the opportunity for a knockout presents itself during the fight, he’s going to go for it. He knows how to close the show and he wants this show closed with fireworks. He wants to finish the book on his boxing career with a spectacular ending.

As a trainer, would you say Pacquiao has more quality fights in him?

“I do think Manny has more quality fights in him. His power, speed, work ethic are still superior to most others. (more…)

Adamek before Molina fight: “I’m ready”

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Former WBC light heavyweight and IBF cruiserweight champion and heavyweight title contender Tomasz Adamek (50-4, 30 KO) is confident that his 10 week training camp in Osada Sniezka, Łomnica, Poland, will be enough to prepare him for Eric Molina (24-3, 18 KO). “The ring always verifies better than just words, but with my trainer Roger Bloodworth and whole Team Adamek, we did everything possible to beat Molina and return to the heavyweight elite. I know that Eric will come to Poland as confident as I am. Nothing better for the fans – two confident fighters facing each other,” said Adamek at today’s open training for Polish media. The Adamek-Molina main event will be part of Polsat Boxing Night V on April 2 in Krakow.

Stockholm prepares for biggest boxing event in almost fifty-years

In September 1968, Jimmy Ellis retained the World Heavyweight title with a controversial fifteen-round decision over Floyd Patterson at the Råsunda Football Stadium in Stockholm. 48 years later, big-time boxing returns to the Swedish capital when the Nordic Fight Night hits the Hovet on April 23.

“This is going to be the biggest boxing event in Stockholm for almost fifty-years,” said promoter Nisse Sauerland. “The Hovet has a fantastic history of hosting World-class boxing, with legends such as Sonny Liston and Ingemar Johansson having fought there. Now, it’s time for the next generation of fighters to take their place among these boxing greats and welcome in a new era of Swedish boxing!” (more…)

Two-time world champion Andre Ward, IBF #1 light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera, unbeaten featherweight Joseph “Jojo” Diaz Jr. and Jayson “La Maravilla” Velez participated today in a media workout ahead of their scheduled fights this Saturday at Oracle Arena in Oakland. Ward-Barrera and Diaz-Velez will bothbe televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing.

Andre Ward: “My brain has thanked me for these two years and my body has thanked me for these two years. Fighting at 175, I get to eat. I’m a little bit happier.”

Sullivan Barrera: “Andre Ward has his name and I’m fighting in his hometown so I have to have the knockout. I would have to even if we were fighting in Las Vegas. More than anything, I am determined to overcome this challenge.”

Joseph Diaz: “Camp’s been amazing. I’m as fast as ever and I feel stronger than ever. I’ve had an eight-week training camp and I had an easy time getting right down to the weight. I know Jayson’s ready — he’s looking good — and I’m ready, too.”

Jayson Velez: “The last three or four fights I would dominate the first three or four rounds and I’d run out of gas, but I’m training differently and I have a lot more stamina. It will be his speed versus my power and it’s Mexico versus Puerto Rico.”

The undercard for the April 9 bout between Manny Pacquaio and Timothy Bradley were all in attendance at Fortune’s Gym Tuesday afternoon for a media day work out which included, Evgeny Gradovich, Jose Ramirez, Oscar Valdez, and Gilberto Ramirez. Top Rank’s Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum, who dubbed this a “No Trump undercard,” was also there to support his fighters. The Top Rank promotion will be aired on PPV live from The MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Gilberto Ramirez: “This is my time. I have a lot of respect for Arthur Abraham. He’s a great champion. I know he’s working hard in training camp as am I. It’s going to be a great fight. I have to be smart in this fight. We are working on keeping the pressure on Abraham by throwing high volumes of punches and staying on top of him. I’m going to be a second skin on him. I feel a great sense of history fighting to become Mexico’s first super middleweight champion. It is a great honor representing my country in this fight. All I am thinking about is April 9. Looking past this fight is meaningless. The future is now.” (more…)

Roberto Duran to train Shane Mosley

Former three-division champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley has announced that he is bringing International Boxing Hall of Fame member Roberto “Manos De Piedra” Duran on as his trainer for his upcoming fight. After ending a brief retirement, Mosley went 2-0 in 2015 and in the upcoming few days will announce his next fight — which will be for an undisclosed world title.

“I am very happy to have Duran on my team. This is the type of addition that will push me even farther,” said Mosley. “He is a fighter that I looked up to when I was coming up. How can you not learn from a legend like him?”

Shumenov to return in April against TBA

WBA interim cruiserweight world champion Beibut Shumenov (16-2, 10 KOs) will return from a year of inactivity in April. Specific date and location is TBA. In the meantime, Shumenov is targeting the May 21st unification title winner between full WBA titlist Denis Lebedev (28-2, 21 KOs) and IBF champion Victor Emilio “El Tyson de Abasto” Ramirez (22-2-1, 17 KOs), and he wants it within 90/120 days of their outcome.

“I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to fight the Lebedev-Ramirez winner because it’s always been my goal to unify the titles,” Shumenov explained. “Lebedev has always been my target. Ramirez is the other fighter I’ve really wanted to fight and my manager tried to make a fight between us, too.

“I’ve been in the gym since my last fight, training hard to perfect my skills. Now, I am a completely different fighter since I fought last July. My team is extremely happy and confident that I can beat all of the other world cruiserweight champions.” (more…)

Lucas Browne: I am not a drug user or a drug cheat

Lucas Browne Statement: “I would like to assure all my fans, the whole of the boxing world and all of Australia that I am not a drug user or a drug cheat. The news of this positive test has shocked and devastated me, and I will be fighting for as long as it takes to clear my name.

“Prior to today I had not heard of the drug clenbuterol and had no idea what it was used for. I am now aware that it is essentially a weight-stripping drug, and as a heavyweight boxer the idea of me using it is utterly ridiculous. I am a staunch long-time opponent of any drug use, performance-enhancing or otherwise.

“My team and I were well aware of the many risks involved in going to a place like Chechnya to fight a reigning champion, and believed we had taken sufficient precautions. In addition, it was at our insistence that VADA testing was implemented for the fight. (more…)

The Log and the Short of a Boxing Mystery

pacquiao-bradley3By Bill Dwyre

With three weeks to go before Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley step into the ring in Las Vegas with intentions of punching each other’s lights out, a mystery continues to loom.

We know about Pacquiao’s retirement intentions, and about his political desires. The only mysteries there are (1) will he actually retire and (2) will he actually be elected a Philippine senator.

We know about Bradley’s discomfort with never getting the slight bit of credit for a victory over Pacquiao that the judges gave him, but nobody else did. We also know he has stopped trying to do battle with other boxers while fueling himself on Caesar Salad. Filet mignon, Tim. Then filet the opponent.

What we don’t know is what “The Log in the Ocean” means. (more…)

Sullivan Barrera: Realizing a Dream That’s Bigger Than Boxing

By Jesse Wright
Photo: Craig Bennett/Main Events

There is one fight that every single person in the boxing universe is talking about right now: Sergey Kovalev vs. Andre Ward. Although that will no doubt be a phenomenal fight both lucratively and in entertainment value, there is still one more fight that needs to happen before we start getting excited. That fight, of course, is the one between Cuban amateur standout Sullivan Barrera and Andre Ward on Saturday, March 26th live on HBO. We got a chance to catch up with Barrera and not only learn what this fight means to his career, but what it will mean to accomplish a dream that should have been impossible.

Andre Ward is regarded by many as one of boxing’s pound for pound greatest. His undefeated record of 28-0 with 15 KOs came against the best competition the super middleweight division had to offer. Now at light heavyweight after an extensive layoff, Ward has only had one fight against overmatched Edwin Rodriguez back in November. Barrera will not be holding Ward’s past success in high regard once the bell sounds on Saturday. (more…)

Mighty Mo: I’m here to steal the show

By Jeff Zimmerman
Photos: Stacey Verbeek

Hard hitting WBO NABO junior welterweight champion “Mighty Mo” Maurice Hooker (19-0-2, 14KO) out of Dallas, Texas takes on Columbian southpaw Wilfrido Buelvas (17-5, 11KO) on Saturday, March 26th at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA as part of the Andre Ward-Sullivan Barrera undercard. This will be Hooker’s first fight since signing with Roc Nation who also promotes Ward.

It has not been an easy road for the affable Hooker, who fought on the streets of Dallas as a teen before being led to a boxing gym that changed his life. Hooker, tall and slender with a big right hand, had his first pro fight against a 7-1 fighter where he earned a respectable draw. Under the guidance of his manager Arnie Verbeek and trainer Vincent Parra, he has gradually worked his way up the ladder and now has his sights on a world title. Although signing with Roc Nation should give him a big boost to his career, both inside and outside the ring, Hooker is still not completely content. (more…)

Abel Sanchez: Andre Ward has to prove that he belongs at 175

The biggest fight this week features the return of two-time world champion Andre Ward (28-0, 15 KOs) against undefeated IBF #1 rated light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera (17-0, 12 KOs) in a twelve round 175lb elimination bout at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. In 2012, Ward was at the top of the world, but since then he has only fought twice.

“The Andre Ward that we’ve watched in the past we haven’t seen lately,” said Abel Sanchez, Barrera’s trainer. “But it’s the best that I can do is prepare Sullivan to take what’s given to him, to take what’s in front of him. Sullivan has a style that is from the – I meant to say from part of the Cuban school and part of my school. The attacking style that he has now and the knockouts that he has now are some of the stuff that we practice in the gym. It’s just a matter of going at Andre and taking what he gives us but not to let Andre breathe.

“It’ll make for a great fight because Andre I think has to prove – in my opinion anyway has to prove that he belongs at 175. He’s staring at a full-fledged 175-pounder that’s very athletic, that has a long history of a Cuban background and has had a great history with me. So if Andre can handle that, more power to him if he’ll come out. We don’t think he can. We think that we’ll be too good for him at this moment in Andre’s career. So that remains to be seen I guess on March 26.”
