Mendez not leaving Barthelemy world title fight in judges’ hands

IBF junior lightweight world champion Argenis “La Tormenta” Mendez (21-2-1, 11 KOs) has vowed not to leave the outcome of his January 3 title defense against No. 1 mandatory challenger Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy (19-0, 12 KOs), airing live on the 2014 ESPN Friday Night Fights season opener, in the hands of the judges.

Mendez, fighting out of Brooklyn (NY), will make his second world title defense against Barthelemy at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The 2004 Dominican Republic Olympian learned an invaluable lesson in his first world title defense, fighting a controversial 12-round draw with Arash Usmanee last August, in which most observers felt Mendez clearly won, on the first event ever presented by his promoter, Iron Mike Productions (IMP).

Roy Jones Jr., four world title fights, Kingpin and Ali Raymi vs. Sampson Dutchboygym make for a great boxing weekend

By Karl Freitag

While the barren USA TV schedule makes it seem there is nothing going on in boxing this weekend, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

On Friday, former heavyweight title challenger Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson looks to take down WBO #7 rated heavyweight Christian Hammer in Hamburg, Germany (and he’s a big betting favorite to do it).

Also, in a minimumweight bout of maximum proportions in Sanaa, Yemen, Unbeaten WBO #7/WBC #9 rated Ali Raymi (20-0, 20 KOs, all in the first round) is scheduled to face his toughest test to date against unbeaten former WBF titleholder Sampson Dutchboygym (43-0, 36 KOs), who is coming out of an eleven year retirement for this fight!

On Saturday, future Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr. is the biggest name fighting. He will take on Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf in Moscow, Russia. But that’s just the beginning, as there are no less than four world title fights on tap that day.

1) On the Jones-Benmakhlouf card, there will be a fight for the WBA interim middleweight title between Dmitry Chudinov and Juan Camilo Novoa.

2) In Buenos Aires, Argentina, WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez makes another defense of his title against David Carmona.

3) In Valencia, Spain, IBF super bantamweight champion Kiko Martinez defends against Jeffrey Mathebula.

4) In Leeds, England, Stuart Hall meets Vusi Malinga for the vacant IBF bantamweight title.

Things heated up at the press conference for Friday’s big heavyweight clash between former heavyweight title challenger Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (29-3-1, 14 KOs) and WBO #7 rated Christian Hammer (14-3, 10 KOs) at the Schnelsen Schnelsen Exhibition in Hamburg, Germany. The ten-round bout will be televised throughout Europe on Eurosport.

Kevin Johnson: “I am the king in the ring! I box anywhere in the world, in Australia, in Europe, most recently in England. In America they’re afraid of me because I hardly get any work. Now I’m going against Christian Hammer…that’s a C-Class Fighter!”

Christian Hammer: “He talks too much, I hope he can also fight in the Schnelsen Exhibition Hall on Friday…I’m in good shape, but don’t have much to say. I do my job in the ring.”

The event is being promoted by Alexander Alekseev, who recently fought for a world championship himself. “I now have an interesting job, and look forward to the upcoming work,” said Alekseev. “Of course, I still need some experience. You never stop learning in life whether you’re a boxer or a promoter. In any case, I will do everything to bring my boys to the top. We’ll see the first results soon.” (more…)

Amateur Star Khytrov Crushes Nava in Pro Debut

By Mariano A. Agmi at ringside

Highly touted super middleweight prospect Ievgen Khytrov made his professional debut a successful one, stopping Christian Nava (2-5-1) with a hellacious counter left hook to end the fight in the very first stanza. The bout served as the main event of an entertaining nine bout card promoted by Dmitry Salita’s Star of David promotions in association with Fight Promotions out of Webster Hall in New York City.

Khytrov, who represented Ukraine in the 2012 Olympics, is Dmitry Salita’s most significant signing as a young promoter. With 500 amateur fights under his belt and possessing explosive power with both hands, the 25-year-old is often compared to another rising star from the region, middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Time will tell whether Khytrov is the goods, but on this night, he withstood everything that Christian Nava had to offer and made short work of the Utah native. The Buddy McGirt trained Ukrainian traded shots with Nava for most of round one, getting hit more than he should have. Nava did not seem intimidated by his opponent’s vaunted power, willingly engaging his opponent as he varied his punches to the head and body. However, just as Nava waved Khytrov in, the “Ukrainian Lion” launched an explosive combination punctuated by a left hook that dropped Nava and caused the referee to stop the bout at 2:57 of round one.

Mike Tyson has come full circle.

Once universally feared and reviled, “The Baddest Man on the Planet,” who infamously threatened to eat another fighter’s children, finds himself back in the public consciousness with his one-man stage show, autobiography and HBO Special “Undisputed Truth.” However, it is in his newfound role as boxing promoter for Deerfield Beach FL-based Iron Mike Promotions that Tyson truly seems at home. Tyson spent Tuesday afternoon at the brand new gym within the former Acquinity Sports headquarters catching up with his young, talented stable of fighters.

Tyson witnessed some tough training from the likes of newly-signed Erickson Lubin, the eighteen- year old whose recent signing to Iron Mike Promotions ruffled feathers with Team USA Boxing. However, it became immediately apparent Tyson was here to impart invaluable knowledge, teaching Lubin the intricacies of the bobbing style that allowed Tyson to become the youngest heavyweight champion of all time.
