U.S. Court orders Chagaev-Oquendo rematch before proposed Chagaev defense against Browne

Square Ring Promotions and Hitz Boxing announced today that District Court Judge Ronnie Abrams for the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York entered an order in Oquendo vs. Terek Box Event (Case no. 14-cv-9835) preliminarily enjoining the Defendant from, among other things, “promoting or managing Ruslan Chagaev in any bout for the World Boxing Association (“WBA”) World Heavyweight Championship, unless Mr. Chagaev first shall have defended his WBA heavyweight title against Fres Oquendo or vacated the WBA title.”

“I want to express my profound and sincere thanks to the Court for upholding my rights to a rematch,” said Fres Oquendo. “I went to do the fight in Gronzy last July at a point in time when I was not mentally ready because of medical complications my wife and newborn child were going through, but it was explained to me that this event was very important to the country and so when they promised me more money and an immediate rematch, that induced me to go forward with the fight even though I was not 100%. All I have been seeking in this whole process is what was promised to me. I’ve been training hard and look forward to showing the world what I can do when I am 100%. (more…)

Melson returns May 8

Good guy jr middleweight Boyd “Rainmaker” Melson returns to the ring following a fifteen month layoff when he battles fellow popular New Yorker Mike “El Cangri” Ruiz in the ten round main event of a DiBella Entertainment and New Legend Boxing card Friday, May 8 at the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, NY.

Out of action since February 2014, Melson has an excellent professional record of 14-1-1 with four wins by knockout. The Manhattan resident, who is one of the biggest box office draws in the Big Apple, was slated to face contender Glen Tapia last June at Madison Square Garden but withdrew after suffering a shoulder injury in training. In his last bout, the 2003 West Point grad outpointed Donald Ward while fighting through a stretched brachial plexus. The injury, which a ringside doctor said he’s never seen in more than 30 years of working with fighters, caused temporary paralysis in Melson’s right arm during the last five rounds of the match.

Roach mocks Mayweather swimming workout

After Floyd Mayweather posted a video of himself training in a swimming pool on his Instagram account, the following quotes were released attributed to Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach:

“Sounds like we should start calling him Floyd “Flipper” Mayweather. Team Mayweather would be wise to add a lifeguard to their corner on fight night because Manny is taking ‘Mr. 47 and 1’ into deep water. Swimming lessons or whatever he thinks he is doing will not help him survive the shark-infested waters he will be entering on May 2. I’m betting his little buddy Justin Bieber will be walking him into the ring singing [the Flipper TV theme].”

Gypsy Joe Harris stage play ticket alert

The one-night-only stage play about the life and times of Philly welterweight legend Gypsy Joe Harris will be presented this Saturday, April 11th, 8:00 PM, at the Ethical Society of Philadelphia (1906 Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA).

In 1968, Gypsy Joe Harris was streaking up the welterweight rankings until it was discovered that he had been fighting while completely blind in his right eye. As a result, Harris lost his boxing license for good at age 22. With his dream of becoming a world champion dead, Gypsy’s life outside the ring unraveled before him. The play, “Gypsy Joe Harris – Son of Philadelphia”, tells the harrowing tale of this one-of-a-kind boxing icon.

Tickets are priced at $25 and are still available. To purchase advance tickets, visit www.eventbrite.com and search for “Gypsy Joe”. Limited tickets will also be available at the door on Saturday night.

More on Quigg-Frampton

“It is not about Cyclone Promotions and Matchroom Sport, it’s about Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton,” stated Quigg promoter Eddie Hearn in response to the Frampton camp. “If Cyclone Promotions really need their name on the poster and Michael Buffer to mention them in the introductions, then no problem. They are right that negotiations have been ongoing but they ended last week when we hit a brick wall.

“We’re frustrated. Brook versus Khan has fallen by the wayside and we want to make sure that this fight happens. We’ve made Carl an offer of £1.5 million to fight in Manchester on July 18. There’s no reason why this fight can’t happen and we are willing to put the money up. There’s no offer from them and all the revenue is being delivered by us. We have massive respect for Carl, he’s a brilliant fighter that I have worked with in the past. These are two great champions and we just want to see the fight; let’s get it made.” (more…)

Hearn makes £1.5 million offer to Frampton

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ, promoter Eddie Hearn announced a £1.5 million offer for IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton to fight WBA “regular” champ Scott Quigg on July 18th at the Manchester Arena.

Cyclone Promotions, who represents Frampton quickly responded: “Cyclone Promotions, who represent IBF World Champion Carl Frampton, are in negotiations with Matchroom Sport, who represent Scott Quigg, to deliver a co-promotion of this eagerly awaited contest in June/July 2015. Cyclone Promotions have made several attempts to organize a follow-up meeting with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport to progress these negotiations. Cyclone Promotions and Carl Frampton are therefore surprised by this afternoon’s public offer from Matchroom Sport to Carl Frampton. Matchroom Sport understands Carl Frampton is under contract with Cyclone Promotions. If Matchroom Sport are interested in joining Cyclone Promotions in staging this domestic superfight, we recommend Matchroom accept the invitation for a follow-up meeting. If Matchroom Sport does not want to meet, Carl Frampton will make an optional defence of his IBF world title this summer.”

Carl Frampton: “My team and I have been in negotiations with Matchroom Sport to co-promote this fight. It has been made very clear to Matchroom Sport throughout the entire negotiation period that this huge domestic fight can only take place as a co-promotion. It is therefore frustrating that Matchroom have deviated from negotiations with this offer.”

Claveras aims to dethrone Guevara Saturday

By Gabriel F. Cordero

WBC light flyweight champion Pedro Guevara (24-1-1, 16 KOs) will defend his crown for the first time against the Filipino Richard Claveras (12-0-2, 12 KOs) at the Centro de Usos Múltiples in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico on Saturday. Claveras, the current WBC Asia-Pacific Pacific champion, is brimming with confidence proclaiming “I have what it takes to win in Mexico with my speed, punch and a lot of heart. Guevara has the advantage of being in his home country but I go in with a completely winning mentality and have not had a thought of defeat in my head.”

HBO Sports debuts an all-new installment of “2 Days” when the feature segment returns Tonight at 10:15 p.m. (ET/PT) with a behind-the-scenes look at undefeated sensation Terence Crawford, one of boxing’s fastest rising stars.

Danny Garcia taking his career one fight at a time

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

North Philly’s Danny Garcia, 29-0, 17 KOs, takes on DC’s Lamont Peterson, 33-2-1, 17 KOs, on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, in a scheduled 12-rounder that will be broadcast live during primetime on NBC broadcast television. The hotly anticipated bout between the two top junior welterweights is a natural match that should end any discussion (if there still is any discussion) about who the best 140-pounder is in the world today.

However this clash of junior welterweight champions will be contested at a 143 pound catch weight with none of the belts held by either man at stake. Garcia holds the WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine championships, while Peterson still claims the IBF crown. But no matter what happens on Saturday night, no belts will be transacted.

With or without the belts on the line, the bout is an intriguing match worthy of both the attention and excitement the April 11th event has generated. Still, with the two best junior welters facing off, the lack of titles involved has been a bit of a wet blanket leading up to the event. However, Danny Garcia refuses to let this point distract him from the task at hand – to defeat Peterson before moving up to the welterweight class where bigger fights, bigger paydays and more glory await him.

Quillin: I’m creating my own story

By Matt Richardson
Photos: Big Joe Miranda

Much has changed since boxing fans last saw Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin in the ring 12 months ago.

For starters, the 31-year-old Quillin no longer has his WBO middleweight title. Due to boxing politics and what many would deem a poor business decision, the undefeated New Yorker passed on a chance to defend his title for the highest payday of his career. Instead, he sat on the sidelines, was stripped of his belt, lost the chance to make millions and seemingly gained ring rust instead.

Ahead of his return to the ring on Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York against the man who currently holds that title, Andy Lee, Quillin said he understood the criticism leveled at him but that he had no regrets about what he decided to do.

“I made a lot of tough decisions but it kind of defined me as a man,” Quillin (31-0, 22 KO’s) recently explained to Fightnews. “I was able to take control of certain things that I thought were right for me and right for my family. I took some time off. A lot of people don’t understand that because they’ve never sacrificed so much of their time. My sacrificing is being away from my family but this time I actually wanted to be there with my family. Having a baby and then having an uncle who just passed right before I got into to camp. I had to make a sacrifice not going to his funeral,” he said. (more…)

Vargas ready for Spence this Saturday

Colombian-born, Toronto-based welterweight Samuel Vargas (20-1-1, 8 KOs) will face unbeaten former U.S. Olympian Errol Spence Jr.(15-0, 12 KOs) this Saturday. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds and at the welterweight limit of 147. The bout will be on the undercard of the main event between world champions Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson. Location will be the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York. Vargas has been fighting slightly above the welterweight limit in recent years but it was more so to keep busy until an opportunity at welterweight presented itself like this one. Vargas is the current WBA-NABA Canada super welterweight champion but held the same title at 147 previously. (more…)

Results from Mohegan Sun

By Matt Thompson

In the very first show put on by Bosslady Promotions LLC., Super bantamweight contender Luis Rosa (19-0, 9 KO’s) scored a 2nd round TKO over tough Mexican veteran Ernesto Guerrero (17-16, 11 KO’s) in the main event of the evening. In the opening round, Guerrero boxed on the outside while Rosa tried to impose his will inside. However, Guerrero effectively clinched to halt any of Rosa’s momentum as soon as he got in too close. However, in the 2nd round two left hooks scored two knockdowns. After the 2nd knockdown, referee Danny Schiavone called a halt to the action at 1:14 of round 2.

In the co-feature, Edwin Soto (10-2-2, 4 KO’s) returned to the win column after a two fight losing streak with an entertaining 6 round unanimous decision over Connecticut veteran Shakha Moore (11-20-3, 2 KO’s). At times both fighters traded shots much to the delight of the crowd, but the cleaner and hard punches were landed by Soto who was in control for most of the fight. Official scores were 60-54 (twice) and 59-55 all for Soto. (more…)

As far as the fight with Campillo, Beterbiev said, “In this fight I was able to really show what I’m capable of and my experience paid off. When I watched footage of Campillo I noticed that he did a lot of running. I wasn’t trying to be the aggressor. I just stuck to my game plan. I’m very happy to be on the big stage on CBS at such an early point in my professional career. This all came together very quickly and I hope to be back soon.”

Boxing Buzz: Salido hits Puerto Rico tonight, WBC honors Kovalev

By Karl Freitag

WBO junior lightweight champion Orlando “Siri” Salido will arrive tonight in Puerto Rico. The Mexican warrior and his team arrive at Luis Muñoz Marin Airport on American Airlines flight #1244 from Miami at 11:58 p.m. On Monday at 1PM he’s scheduled for a media workout at the Felix Pagan Pintor Gym, in Guaynabo.

The WBC has made the unprecedented move of naming of making Sergey Kovalev, world champion of the rival IBF, WBO and WBA sanctioning bodies, as their fighter of the month for March. The WBC has been very proactive in trying to make the fight that fans want to see, a clash between their WBC champion Adonis Stevenson and Kovalev, who has been named as Stevenson’s mandatory challenger.

The Big Knockout Boxing pay-per-view telecast failed to deliver any big knockouts with four straight decisions in the featured bouts. The only early ending was Layla McCarter getting a referee’s stoppage with ten seconds left in the opener against Diana Prazak.

Curtis “Showtime” Stevens wasn’t too pleased with the judges’ scoring in his majority draw with Gabriel Rosado in the BKB headliner. “There was some bulls***. I dropped him in that round so that was a 10-8 round. I don’t know how a 10-8 round becomes a draw in a seven round fight. I think somebody got their math f***ed up somewhere.”

Cuadras retains title, stays unbeaten with unanimous decision over Concepcion

Unbeaten WBC super flyweight champion Carlos “Príncipe” Cuadras (32-0-1, 25 KOs) retained his title via twelve round unanimous decision over #1 rated challenger Luis “Nica” Concepcion (32-4, 23 KOs) on Saturday night at the Gimnasio de la Unidad Deportiva Martín Alarcon in Metepec, Estado de Mexico. Concepcion stalked the more mobile Cuadras the entire fight. WBC open scoring had Cuadras ahead 39-37 on all three cards after four.
