Puerto Rican challenger Jonathan “Polvo” Oquendo arrived tonight in New York, where this Saturday will face WBA featherweight champion Jesus Cuellar at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, as part of a Showtime broadcast. Oquendo (26-4, 16 KOs) and Cuellar (27-1, 21 KO) will train in media workouts tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. ET at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn. The WBA #9 ranked Oquendo is coming off the biggest win of his career when on September 12 he beat former two-time world champion Jhonny Gonzalez by a majority decision in Las Vegas. Oquendo also beat Gabino Cota by unanimous decision in March.

Cuellar’s only fight in 2015 was a KO win over former world champion Vic Darchinyan in June. The Argentine won the interim WBA featherweight title in 2013 by defeating Claudio Marrero and successfully defended it with victories over Rico Ramos (unanimous decision), Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez (KO2) Ruben Tamayo (TKO5) and Darchinyan (KO8).
Showtime broadcast on December 5 will begin at 9:00 pm EST with Oquendo-Cuellar and then the main event between WBA middleweight Daniel Jacobs (30-1, 27 KOs) defending his belt against former world champion Peter Quillin (32-0-1, 23 KOs).

Daniel Jacobs takes on his biggest fight inside the ring against Peter Quillin defending his WBA Middleweight title fight this Saturday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Jacobs is no stranger to big occasions, having KO’d cancer in 2013 and becoming a world champion in 2014 by defeating Jarrod Fletcher. FightNews caught up with the reigning champ and found out who the real New Yorker is.

You’re fighting the biggest fight of your career against Peter Quillin, what’s your motivation for this considering the hurdles you’ve overcome in your life?
I would definitely agree and say that this is my biggest fight of my career, I don’t know as of yet if it will be the most complicated as far as the challenge but on paper, yeah.
What motivates me, my legacy. What I’m fighting for, my family and my future and wanting to be the best middleweight out there. That’s enough motivation for me. (more…)

Saunders says Fury backs him against Lee

Middleweight Billy Joe Saunders claims has been backed by the new world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury to become the next world champion from travelling (gypsy) stock and predicts a new era for the sport. Saunders challenges the WBO champion Andy Lee on December 19th at the Manchester Arena in a bout that has been picked up by Showtime in the USA.

The interesting thing about Fury allegedly backing Saunders is that Andy Lee is actually Fury’s cousin.

“Tyson said he’s backing me to win the WBO world middleweight title against Lee and then we’ll both rule,” stated Saunders. “I believe that this is the start of a new era in boxing for gypsy fighters, Tyson’s world champion, I’m going to beat Lee and become the next world champion, and there are plenty more travelling lads coming through who are all potential world champions.”

Video: Emanuel Steward talks about Tyson Fury

Back in 2012, when Wladimir Klitschko was preparing to fight Tony Thompson, legendary trainer Emanuel Steward was asked for his thoughts on Tyson Fury. What he predicted 3-years ago is remarkable. Steward saw the potential in Tyson Fury and questioned the mental strength of Robert Helenius and David Price, who were unbeaten and considered potential rivals for Klitschko at the time.

Although the fight is still two months away, there was already tension between unified light heavyweight title holder Sergey Kovalev and former world champion Jean Pascal at Monday’s press conference held at Bell Centre’s La Cage – Brasserie Sportive when Main Events and InterBox formally announced the rematch for the WBO, WBA and IBF light heavyweight world titles to take place on January 30 at Bell Centre.

Sergey Kovalev: “I’m not a talker, I’m a fighter. I will make him close his mouth once and for all on January 30.”

Jean Pascal: “I put him down in the 8th round in the first fight, but they called it a slip. But I promise you that Kovalev is going to have a full plate in the rematch. I’m going to have a full plate as well, but I have a new trainer (Freddie Roach), I’ve changed things, I’ve improved in ways that Kovalev cannot even imagine. I’m going to break up the party, I’m going to teach him respect, and to respect Canadian boxing fans.”

Fury was afraid of being drugged in Germany

Today at The Bolton Wanderers Football ground, newly crowned heavyweight king Tyson Fury, with his team, addressed the media. Still sporting slightly bruised eyelids, 27-year-old Fury was admittedly and understandably tired, yet he took time to speak and then answer questions from the floor.

With all four of his newly won belts on display on the table in front of him and introduced by Asif Vali, to rapturous applause, Tyson spoke to the packed room:

“What can I say? Thanks everyone for turning up. I’m not surprised, I’m not overwhelmed. I always said it; we always said it (pointing to his team, consisting of his uncle/head trainer Peter and his father and former pro John). I’ve been telling for as long as I can remember I’d beat Wladimir Klitschko. He didn’t want to fight me but he was forced into it when I became the mandatory with two organisations. You saw a master class performance against the best fighter on the planet. No-one had come close to beating him. For me to go over there and bust him, like I did – because his face was chopped to bits – let’s you know the talent you are messing with. If anyone wants to discredit my performance, it’s just pure jealousy and you heard that from me first.” (more…)

Quillin: I knew this was inevitable

By Matt Richardson
Photos: Stephanie Trapp/Showtime

For years, middleweight boxers Peter Quillin and Danny Jacobs have danced around each other. The two Brooklyn-based 160-pounders fought in the same venues, trained in the same gyms and even attended one another’s bouts. They shook hands, exchanged nods and cheered for the same crew of fighters.

But on Saturday night their shared bond will go deeper than it ever has before. That’s because Quillin (32-0-1, 23 KO’s) and Jacobs (30-1, 27 KO’s) will go from a pair of seats ringside to opposite corners in the ring as they square off for Jacobs’ WBA belt at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

For Quillin, who has been training for the fight for more than two months, this was a natural and expected evolution.

“Of course,” Quillin told Fightnews last week, “it was always a path crossing. I knew it was inevitable. It was always going to happen. It’s just part of the story and part of the journey so I accept things as they come. I’m trying to hurt him and I know he’s doing the same thing. So there are no problems with that. You can be friendly to people but it doesn’t mean you’ve got to be friends with them.” (more…)

IBF middleweight champion James DeGale says he wants to take the WBC title from Badou Jack after successfully defending his IBF crown against Lucian Bute in Quebec on Saturday night. DeGale travelled to Bute’s backyard for the first defense of the belt he won on the road against Andre Dirrell in Boston in May, with the Romanian-Canadian looking to regain the title he surrendered to Carl Froch in 2013 in his tenth defense.

“I am peaking now,” said DeGale. “I don’t want to waste any time, so in the next three and four years I want the big fights. I go to Jamaica on a family holiday on December 28, but when I get back, I am right back on it and I would like to be back out in April.

“I think I put on a good performance. I made it a competitive fight, a good exciting fight. It’s all down to me. I could have been boring and moved and boxed him, I am at my best when I am in the pocket, ducking and throwing shots through the middle. I didn’t take any risks, I was just flowing. I cruised through some of the middle rounds and I have to stop that, but it was a good fight to watch and I think people enjoyed it, that’s the main thing. (more…)

Geraldo stops hot prospect

By Nick Giongco

One-time world title challenger Mark Anthony Geraldo, badly cut and under siege, posted a stunning sixth-round stoppage over previously undefeated Jilbert Gomnera in their bantamweight brawl over the weekend in Manny Pacquiao’s hometown of General Santos City in the Philippines. The main event of the comeback of Blow by Blow, the TV program that launched the career of Pacquiao back in the mid-90s, lived up to its billing with non-stop action, gore and drama in full display.

Geraldo, sporting a hideous cut on his right eye, compelled the referee to step in after sending Gomera down with a vicious combo. Gomera had thought that he already had the fight in the bag when he opened a cut on Geraldo that bled profusely. Sensing that he was just moments away from raising his record to 11-0, Gomera ran into Geraldo’s savage combos and went down, severely shaken and looking forlorn. The victory raised Geraldo’s mark to 32-6-3 with 15 KOs.

Presented by Pacquiao in close coordination with former North Cotabato Gov. Manny Pinol, a die-hard boxing fan and oldtimers Lito Mondejar and Gerry Garcia, Blow by Blow will begin airing on TV5 (Philippines) on Dec. 13. The next destination of Blow by Blow will be Davao City on Dec. 19.

Tyson Fury speaks about what’s next

Says a Wladimir Klitschko rematch would be the same, insists a Deontay Wilder unification fight will have to wait

By James Slater

Fight fans the world over, a great many of them anyway, are still in shock at the way outspoken Tyson Fury more than backed up his words to frustrate, embarrass and ultimately outclass now ex-heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko yesterday. Fury, who even had the temerity to put both hands behind his back during the action in Dusseldorf – Roy Jones Jr. style – is now looking at his next move.

The new WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO ruler spoke to Sky Sports today and he spoke about the possibility of a rematch-enforced return meeting with Klitschko, as well as a unification with WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder. As is to be expected, neither fight worries Fury.

“If he [Wladimir] had ten years to train, the result would be the same next time,” Fury said on the subject of a return with the man he handily outpointed last night. “I think he will take the rematch, but who knows when he gets home and has time to think about it. I’d like to come back to Germany again to fight Wlad. I enjoyed it here and I got a great reception from the German fans. I might be allowed a voluntary defense [first] and I would like to have that back in England, probably in Manchester. It would be great to bring the titles back. (more…)

Early in the second Cave dropped Rojas three times in round two, the third time blasting him through the ropes. Rojas tried desperately to get to his feet, but couldn’t pull himself up using the ropes. As Referee Hubert Earl’s count was coming to a conclusion, Rojas collapsed so the bout was waved off.

Fury-Klitschko GIANT Photo Gallery

Get used to saying it: WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The unbeaten Fury shocked the world by defeating future Hall of Famer Wladimir Klitschko in front of 55,000 stunned spectators on Saturday night at the ESPIRIT Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.

And the way he did it was almost inconceivable. Fury’s game plan almost COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN Klitschko’s offense. Wlad managed to throw just 231 punches for the entire twelve rounds, averaging a feeble 4.3 connects per round. And Wlad landed a paltry 18 power shots in the entire fight! Fury wasn’t much busier, but he threw 140 more punches than Wlad and had a 48-18 advantage in power shots.

Contractually, Fury owes Klitschko an immediate rematch. The question is will it be any different a second time?

The time of the stoppage was 1:46 of the 5th round by TKO.
