Joshua: I am not looking past Cornish

Heavyweight Anthony Joshua says his mind is solely on picking up his first major belt when he takes on Gary Cornish for the vacant Commonwealth title at The O2 in London tonight. Fellow unbeaten Heavyweight Dillian Whyte also in action on the bill against Brian Minto, ready to face the victor for the vacant British title at the same arena on December 12.

Olympic hero Joshua insists he is not looking beyond Cornish towards a showdown with the man that beat him early in his career.

“I see Cornish as an opponent I need to get out of the way,” said Joshua. “What we have always said in the gym is if I can’t get past these type of opponents then I have no chance of doing well in boxing. I have to look at him as a threat I need to get out of there as soon as possible. “People say I need rounds but they will naturally come. I am never going to go in there and try and drag out a fight, especially in the professional ring. We are both big, heavy-handed guys. If everything goes to plan it shouldn’t go longer than my previous fights. (more…)

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Davey is married with two children. His brother Tommy is a 2005 WBA featherweight world title challenger. The Australian boxing fraternity is saying our prayers for Davey.

Carman KOs Razor Ruddock in three

By Dave Spencer

Dillon “Big Country” Carman retained his Canadian Heavyweight Title in impressive fashion and thwarted the hopes of 51 year-old former world title contender Donovan “Razor” Ruddock (40-6-1 30KO) who was no match for the younger busier champion on Friday night at Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto. Carman (9-2 8KO) who got the KO victory at 2:05 of the third round with Ruddock flat on his back and unresponsive while the ten count was being administered. Ruddock, a marquee name from a different era with fights versus world champions like Tyson, Lewis and Morrison and was three fights into a comeback after 14 year absence, his last fight in 2001 ironically winning the Canadian title.

Ruddock struggled but persevered in his first two comeback attempts earlier this year, but versus Carman, it all belonged to the current Canadian champ, pounding the body and pushing the pace in the second and switching gears again in the third. Carman was able to turn his veteran opponent in the corner and land a pair of right hands to score his first knockdown. The Toronto fighter was more than eager to jump back on his opponent and once the order was again given to box, Carman wasted no time landing the fateful right that would end the action with a bang.

By Miguel Maravilla at ringside

Undefeated 2012 Olympic light heavyweight gold medalist Egor Mekhontsev (10-0, 7 KOs) had to climb off the canvas to defeat Jackson Junior (18-4, 16 KOs) by eight round unanimous decision on Friday night at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. In a battle of explosive KO artists, Junior put Mekhontsev on the deck in round six, but the Olympic champion came back strong in the closing rounds to win 77-73, 77-74, 77-74.

Undefeated super lightweight Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed (16-0, 9 KOs) a fifth round TKO over Antonio “The Aztec God of War” Canas (10-2-1, 4 KOs). Reed momentarily staggered Canas in the opening round and followed up with combinations. Canas continued to press as slick southpaw Reed boxed from the outside.

Lightweight Thomas Smith (1-1-1) won a four round unanimous decision over Frankie Winton (1-1, 1 KO). Smith was aggressive throughout the fight and knocked down Winton in the fourth and final round in assuring himself a decision win.

Browne to be trained by Benn and Williams

Former two-time world champion Nigel Benn and experienced Aussie Rodney Williams have been selected as the new trainers for heavyweight Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne, the mandatory challenger to WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev. Browne had been working with the legendary Jeff Fenech, but now feels his style is better suited to Benn and Williams’s methods.

“Can Lucas become a champion? Absolutely!” Benn said. “He has the potential to go all the way. He is a big old boy, he can hit hard and has natural ability and talent. He has good movement and we would love to help him to do the things he hasn’t done before so he can walk through his opponents. I want him to do things that heavyweights can’t do. Lucas has a vision and I know Rodney and I can help him to achieve his goals. I believe Lucas Browne will become Australia’s first heavyweight champion of the world.”

Rodney Williams added: “Undoubtedly Lucas Browne can become the next heavyweight champ. I see the potential he has and I’m looking forward to working with him to use and abuse the athleticism of a man of his size. I relish the opportunity to help the man mountain make Australian boxing history.”

The fighters who will appear on the Mayweather vs. Berto” PPV undercard this Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena took part in their final press conference Thursday at MGM Grand.

Roman “Rocky” Martinez (29-2-2, 17 KOs) will defend his WBO junior lightweight title in a rematch against four-time world champion Orlando “Siri” Salido (42-13-2, 29 KOs).

Roman Martinez: “I want to continue to be a world champion for all of Puerto Rico. I’m in peak condition and I’m ready to get the win. Salido can say whatever he wants. I know him and I was able to knock him down in the first fight. I’m confident I can go finish him. I understand why this fight is happening. Who wouldn’t want to see us go at it again? But I thought I clearly won the first time, and I am confident I will win again on Saturday.”

Orlando Salido: “You saw what happened the last time we fought. You know this is going to be a spectacular matchup. I know Rocky very well and I know he is a smart fighter. Last time I got out of my game plan. This fight, I’m focused and looking forward to a great fight. I’m a better fighter than he is. I know that Martinez is going to run, but I’m in great condition to seek him and get the victory. It’s about getting on the inside for me. Martinez is an intelligent fighter and he knows how to use his reach. If I can get inside his chest and attack the body I will get the win. It’s going to be the best fight of the night. We’re going to exchange blows and pick up where we left off. I’m treating this like it is the biggest fight of my career and I can’t wait to demonstrate my skills one more time.” (more…)
