Rodriguez ready to bounce back on Friday night

Ricardo-Rodriguez300
Ricardo “El Meserito” Rodriguez (9-2, 3 KOs) of Mexico takes on Edwin “El Puto” Rodriguez (7-0, 4 KOs) of Puerto Rico this Friday in the Boxeo Telemundo Ford main event. The bout is scheduled for 10 Rounds with the WBC FECARBOX title. Site of the bout will be the Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida. In his last bout, Rodriguez impressed the Telemundo viewers with his game effort against David Carmona. Carmona had nearly twice as many pro fights as Rodriguez plus the experience of fighting for a world title, but Rodriguez lost a hard fought but respectable decision. He feels the experience gained from his last fight will only help him moving forward. Though his Telemundo main event debut didn’t end with a victory, Rodriguez is ready to seize the opportunity the second time around. (more…)

Campbell, Coyle update

Luke Campbell and Tommy Coyle say that the pressure is on them to claim big wins at the Ice Arena in Hull on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports – so they can set up a huge clash in the city next summer.

The Lightweight duo face big step-up fights on Saturday night, with Coyle meeting former World champion Michael Katsidis and Campbell facing Argentine Daniel Brizuela, who shared a rollercoaster war with Coyle in February.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has made no secret that a clash between the two at Hull City’s KC Stadium next summer would be a huge event for the city and for British boxing, and both men believe that if they keep winning, a fight is inevitable, and Campbell would love to box outside in his hometown for the second time having made his professional debut last July at Hull KR’s Craven Park.

WBC vows support for Navarrete

By Nick Giongco

By way of the Jose Sulaiman boxers’ fund, the World Boxing Council (WBC) has expressed its desire to lend a helping hand to former super-featherweight champion Rolando Navarrete, who is living a life of squalor in General Santos City. Fightnews and Manila Bulletin came out with a story about the sad and sorry tale of the now 57-year-old Navarrete last week and his troubles reached the Mexico City headquarters of current WBC big boss Mauricio Sulaiman, the successor of the late Don Jose, the long-time president of the world’s premier boxing body.

Mauricio, according to Mexican fight scribe Gabriel Cordero, wants Navarrete to be included on the list of destitute fighters who will be given financial assistance by the WBC. All Navarrete has to do is fill up an application form that will be submitted to the WBC and he even requested this writer to track down Navarrete in General Santos City. (more…)

Poor Boys Pro Boxing and Jim ‘Smitty’ Smith put on a nice show for the NAIOP’s fundraiser (Commercial Real Estate Development Association) last Thursday at the Infinity Sports Complex in Denver. The proceeds go to Denver Active 20/30 Children’s Foundation. NAIOP also ponied up for a nice looking ‘championship’ belt to be awarded to the winner of the main event. Super-featherweights Jose Morales and Helario Medina waged a five round war in the main event with neither man willing to give in and wanting to be crowned the NAIOP champion.

Has Golovkin eclipsed Mayweather as #1 pound for pound?

WBC, WBA welterweight and super welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather has ruled the pound for pound list for many years, but with 18 straight KOs and 12 world title defenses, maybe it’s time to give P4P consideration to WBA/IBO/WBC (interim) middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Record: Both are undefeated with Floyd at 47-0, 26 KOs, GGG at 31-0, 28 KOs

Style: Both dominate their opponents. Floyd with speed and boxing skills, GGG with concussive punches.

Level of opposition: Floyd has fought a higher level of opposition over the course of his career, but neither fighter can be said to have cleaned out their division. Floyd has seemingly avoided a showdown with Manny Pacquiao, while GGG has yet unify with any of the other middleweight champions. (more…)

Han, Rodriguez win on Golovkin-Rubio undercard

By Rocky Morales at ringside

Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (25-1, 16KO) won a unanimous decision against Azea Augustama (17-2, 9KO) on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. . It was a lackluster fight throughout that featured little action and no noticeable applause for the East Coast victor as the decision was announced despite his solicitations for an applause at each ring post. Judges scored the 10 round light heavyweight bout 100-90, 99-91 and 100-90 in favor of Rodriguez.

El Paso middleweight Abie Han (23-1, 14KO) won a majority decision victory over Marcos Reyes (33-2, 24KO) in a ten round middleweight bout. Han seemed to win the early rounds before Reyes picked up the pace. Han was in serious trouble and down in the eighth round and nearly stopped but would get up and even go on to win the final round. The fight started slowly but progressively picked up in the middle rounds only to fizzle out again at the end. Reyes was deducted a point for hitting after the bell in the ninth round. Judges scored the bout 97-91, 97-91 and 94-94 in favor of Han. (more…)

Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio wants to leave behind the incident at yesterday’s weigh-in and focus on tonight’s fight, which can still catapult him to stardom even though he will no longer be a world champion. Now a huge betting underdog, Rubio states, “all that just motivates me. That the fans see me for dead drives me to give maximum effort and try with all my heart to go for the victory.”

“I’ve seen that many people don’t believe in me, and even make mockery that I will destroyed in the ring. Before anything I want to say to all those people that the object of this sport is to hurt the opponent and I’m willing to give my life in this fight in order to come out with my hand raised. Although Golovkin is a warrior, I have no fear of what’s going to happen because I have the power to answer him on an equal footing.”

On the subject of not making weight, Rubio stated “it’s not a lack of professionalism, or irresponsibility. In truth I’m very embarrassed with all the people who believe in me. I did everything I could to make the weight of the division, although I prefer this to coming in diminished to a fight as complicated as I expect with Golovkin.

“Right now my mind is focused on the fight. On Monday I’ll think about whether I’ll move up a division or if we’ll plan a stricter diet with a nutritionist. At this weight I’m not in low spirits, on the contrary it motivates me to give my best to reverse this situation.”
