Live professional boxing returned to the most famous street of the U.S.-Mexico border when rookie company Dobberman Promotions returned once again to the Rancho Grande nightclub located in the middle of Revolution Avenue in Tijuana, Mexico. In front of a sparse but enthusiastic crowd, super flyweight Jose “Hollywood” Estrella (14-5-1, 10KO) scored an entertaining six-round unanimous decision over the tough as nails Efrain Gonzalez (2-6-1).

Coming off a loss to Luis Nery for the state bantamweight title, Estrella got back down closer to his natural weight of 115-pounds as he pounded out the decision against Gonzalez who despite his record kept up with the more experienced Estrella. (more…)

– Vera has to lose the excess weight

– Apparently still confusion over whether BKB results will count as official boxing results. The camps don’t want the result included on their fighters’ official records. It all comes down to how the NSAC reports the results to Fight Fax.

While WBC #1 heavyweight and 2008 U.S. Olympic medalist Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) is getting most the attention this weekend at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, there will also be another unbeaten heavyweight seeing action. 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (11-0, 10 KOs) returns to the ring on the same card against veteran heavyweight Billy “The Kid” Zumbrun (27-13, 16 KOs). The 6’7 Breazeale, who is advised by Al Haymon and is coming off a win against 2004 U.S. Olympian Devin Vargas in his last fight, is aiming to steal the show.

“I’m looking forward to fighting at the StubHub Center again,” Breazeale said. “Training camp has been great with my trainer John Bray. This will be the second time I’ve fought at this venue in the last two months and my last bout with Vargas didn’t end the way I wanted it to. Billy is a tough veteran and I respect anyone that steps in the ring, however I’m fighting in of front of my hometown fans and I’m looking forward to making a statement.” (more…)

Welterweight contender Luis Carlos Abregu (36-1, 29 KOs) is looking for a dance partner and he does not care who it is, he just wants to get back in the ring and prove that he belongs with the elite fighters of the world. After year layoff, the tough Argentinian came back in April and won a rough and tumble affair against then undefeated Jean Carlos Prada in his hometown of Salta, Argentina, Abregu hit the deck during the exciting fight but he came back to put away Prada in the eighth round before more than 10,000 fans in the local soccer stadium.

Abregu of Salta, Argentina has now won seven consecutive, six inside the distance including his dismantling of then undefeated prospect Thomas Dulorme, since his one and only professional loss to the two-time world champion Timothy Bradley Jr. on July 17 of 2010 in Palm Springs, California.

He always seems to be one of candidates considered to face the name boxers in the welterweight division, has yet to able to get one of the top guys in the ring. (more…)

Lundy: I want Provodnikov!

Former WBO light welterweight world champion Ruslan Provodnikov, known as “The Siberian Rocky,” is looking to step back into the ring this fall following a close loss to Chris Algieri in June, and Philadelphia’s “Hammerin'” Hank Lundy could be next on the hard-hitting Russian’s list. Coming off his third consecutive win in July, Lundy (25-3-1, 12 KOs) is now ranked #3 in the WBC among lightweights and would have no problem stepping up to 140 pounds to face Provodnikov, a fight he felt he should’ve had been in June when Provodnikov (23-3, 16 KOs) instead faced Algieri at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

“They had a list of guys to fight, including Algieri, Richar Abril and me and when they got my name, there was no excuse. They just didn’t want to fight me,” Lundy said. “They said Algieri wasn’t exciting enough, but with me, they just didn’t want to fight me. (more…)

Deontay Wilder: We don’t overlook anyone – when you get in the ring you’re a risk

By Miguel Maravilla

Undefeated WBC number one ranked heavyweight Deontay “Bronze Bromber” Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) of Tuscaloosa, Alabama returns to action Saturday night when he takes on Orlando, Florida’s Jason Gavern (25-16-4, 11 KOs) on Showtime Extreme at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California. Fightnews.com caught up with the Bronze Bomber as he talked about his preparation, upcoming fight with Gavern and his future date with Bermane Stiverne.

“We don’t want to call it a warm up or tune up because I didn’t have to fight but we took this fight. I am doing this for the fans,” Deontay Wilder told Fightnews.com. The 2008 U.S. Olympic bronze medalist Wilder worked with trainer, 1984 gold medalist and former welterweight champion Mark Breland during a short camp in his hometown of Tuscaloosa.

“Camp is great. It is probably the shortest camp I have ever had being that I got put on the card late, which is great because I am always in camp training we are always in the gym,” said Wilder. “It was a quick knockout that was the last time I fought and this has been the longest inactivity I have had since that fight so I am ready to get back in the ring.” (more…)

Porter-Brook final pre-fight press conference

Photos: Esther Lin / Showtime

Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions hosted the final press conference earlier Thursday for this Saturday’s world championship tripleheader from StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. In a three-fight Showtime telecast, IBF welterweight world champion “ShowTime” Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15 KOs) will defend against fellow unbeaten Kell Brook 32-0, 22 KOs), WBC super middleweight world champion Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika (32-5-3, 21 KOs) will risk his 168-pound belt in a grudge rematch against unbeaten Anthony “The Dog” Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KOs), and undefeated Omar “Panterita” Figueroa Jr. (23-0-1, 17 KOs) will put up his WBC lightweight world championship against mandatory challenger Daniel “Tremendo” Estrada (32-2-1, 24 KOs).

The telecast will be preceded by two important bouts on Showtime Extreme as undefeated heavyweight Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) will take on Jason Gavern (25-16-4, 11 KOs) in a 10-round match and former two-division world champion Jorge “Niño De Oro” Linares (36-3, 23 KOs) will be opposed by Ira Terry (26-11, 16 KOs) in an eight-round lightweight match.

Both Wilder and Linares are mandatory challengers and a victory away from fighting for a world title in the near future; Wilder against WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne and Linares against the Figueroa-Estrada winner.

Speaking before a large contingent of media from the Southern California area and UK, Porter needed a little crowd participation to make his one and only point when it was his turn to talk at the dais. “Let’s let him [Brook] know what time it is,” Porter yelled as he stepped up to the mic. Some in the audience responded, “It’s “Showtime!”

After repeating this, Porter then stared down at a still-seated Brook and said. “I think you know what time it is. Saturday night I’m going to make sure you know what time it is.” Porter said thank you and then sat down. (more…)

26-year old Andrew Fonfara (25-3, 15 KO), one of the new up and coming top light heavyweights, signed a multi-year contract with Al Haymon today. Mark Fonfara, the fighter’s brother and manager, spoke with Fightnews.com about this new development in the “Polish Prince’s” career. His first fight with Haymon as adviser? November 1, in Chicago.

How hard was this decision?

Mark Fonfara: I did not actively look to sign a contract with Al Haymon. I was not even thinking about it when we were approached. It was an easy, painless decision because Andrew was treated with respect by somebody with very considerable influence in the sport of professional boxing. I will not divulge the specifics but there are lot of interesting possibilities, there’s a plan behind this contract. The contract is valid starting today. (more…)

Scott Harrison has boxing license reinstated, faces assault charges

Scott Harrison has finally had his boxing license reinstated by the British Boxing Board of Control. The Stewards of the Board made the decision to renew former two-time WBO world featherweight champion Harrison’s license – which was revoked on the 22nd of September 2013 – at their meeting in Cardiff on Wednesday the 13th of August.

“I had my boxing license reinstated on the 11th of June, subject to me providing the Board with some paperwork before they would grant me permission to box,” Harrison said. “It’s a relief to have my licence fully reinstated. It’s been a long struggle over the year, fighting to get my licence back, but I am now looking forward to returning to my profession and getting my career back on track. I believe I have a few more titles left in me and I have always kept myself in good condition. There will be news soon about my next fight, which should be in October.”

In other Scott Harrison news, he was reportedly arrested on charges of assaulting a woman on August 11, pleaded not guilty today and released on bail. A trial is set for February.

Charles Brewer awarded IBF ring

Story by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com
Photos by Jeanette Salazar – IBF

Charles “The Hatchet” Brewer picked up a new piece of hardware to go along with his red and gold IBF belt on Wednesday. IBF president Daryl Peoples made the trip to the City of Brotherly Love to catch up on some old housekeeping that was long overdue. In a special ceremony at a North Philly hair salon owned by Brewer and his wife Sofia, The Hatchet received a brand new IBF championship ring, an award given to champions who have made three successful title defenses.

Brewer, who won the IBF crown with a with a 5th round TKO of Gary Ballard, did make three defenses – W12 Joey DeGrandis, TKO10 Herol Graham, and TKO3 Antoine Byrd – but those fights were back in 1997 and 1998. Somehow, Brewer’s accomplishment fell through the cracks and he didn’t receive his ring until today – 15 years after that third successful title defense.
