I want to dedicate this fight to my trainer, Emanuel Steward, who is still hospitalized. I know what a triumph means for my career, so my mind is totally focused on my opponent.” (more…)

WBA champ Jones to defend in Venezuela

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Don King announced today in Panama City that the Panamanain WBA cruiserweight world champion Guillermo Jones (38-3-2, 30 KOs) will conduct an optional defense against American Andre Taylor (21-2-2, 8 KOs) on October 27 in Venezuela. Initially Jones was to have faced interim WBA champion Dennis Lebedev, but King met Lebedev representatives in Panama and made an agreement to do Jones-Lebedev after this fight.

Apparently the WBA and King have agreements with the Government of Panama and the Government of Venezuela to do boxing events. King met with Panama President Ricardo Martinelli and also had praise for the newly elected Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Broner-DeMarco/Mitchell-Banks Quotes

Tickets go on sale tomorrow for the November 17 clash between former WBO jr lightweight champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (24-0, 20 KOs) and reigning WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21 KOs) at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey in the main event of HBO card that also features undefeated heavyweight Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KOs) against Johnathon Banks (28-1-1, 18 KOs) in a bout that was rescheduled when Mitchell suffered a hand injury forcing him to withdraw from the original date in July.

Adrien Broner: “I’m not coming just to win this fight, I’m coming to knock DeMarco out. This fight is speed vs. power and it’s going to be just another day in the ring for me. Going up in weight is going to be different and I know he can hit, but you can’t hit what you can’t see and I’m too fast and furious for him. Power is nothing if you can’t connect; it’s like moving a sack of rocks.”

Antonio DeMarco: “This is another tough fight that has been presented to me and I’m going to do everything to keep my WBC title. Broner talks a big game but he’s never been in the ring with a hungry Mexican fighter like me. I wanted this fight from the moment it was offered to me because I know I’ll be the first person to beat Broner and put him in his place. When I put my hands on him, he’ll regret his decision to move up to my division.”

Seth Mitchell: “It’s taken a while, but I’m happy to finally be back in action and fighting a great opponent like Johnathon Banks. I love fighting in Atlantic City because I know my fans from Maryland and the D.C. area will be out in force cheering me on. I am going to give them all a great fight.”

Johnathon Banks: “I’m looking to steal the show on November 17. I’ll prove what a true boxer at the highest level can do against a football player. The winner of our fight should be next in line for a title shot. I plan on making sure that winner is me.”

Luxembourg Commission wants back in EBU

"FLB should never have been "expulsed" by the EBU in the first place as the vote was unfounded and unconstitutional"

Below is an open letter from the Fédération Luxembourgeois de Boxe to the European Boxing Union laying out reasons why their membership status be reinstated.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

As you are aware, the Fédération Luxembourgeois de Boxe (FLB) lost its membership status of the European Boxing Union (EBU) – of which FLB was a founding member! – over the licencing of the David Haye vs Dereck Chisora fight on July 14, 2012 in London, England.

While we contend that this act was in truth based on the fact, that the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) wishes to discourage and discriminate other European national federations from licencing professional boxing in the United Kingdom – an illegal process by the BBBofC according to European Union free trade and monopoly laws, as we all know – the official reason given for the “expulsion” of FLB from the EBU was “that sanctioning Haye vs Chisora is not promoting boxing” (EBU statement) (more…)

Tyson visa approved for Australia

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has been granted a visa from the Australian Government to visit the country for his Day of Champions tour in November. The decision follows the controversial back-track from Immigration Minister Kate Wilkinson to revoke a New Zealand visa granted to Tyson last week for the same tour. A second application for a New Zealand visa has been put forward to the Ministry of Immigration on behalf of Tyson. Tour promoter Max Markson said he was thrilled Tyson would be allowed into Australia for the first time. “We hope we will also receive good news about Tyson’s visit to New Zealand and are now patiently waiting on their response.” Wilkinson confirmed yesterday the Government would consider the reapplication after the Urban Maori Authority backed the visit in return for a guest appearance from Tyson at a south Auckland marae.

Harrison confesses: I lived a lie

Price vs Harrison is LIVE on WealthTV.com Saturday at 3p ET/noon PT

Heavyweight Audley Harrison admits he has “lived a lie” during his career – but insists he will end it on a high this weekend. Since winning a gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Harrison (28-5) has often failed to back up his bragging with powerhouse performances that were promised. He makes his final stand when he challenges British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (13-0) at Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday. The bout will be televised in the USA exclusively on Wealth TV.

Harrison, 40, said: “This is not talk this time. I talk a good fight I know, but I am coming to walk through him and separate myself from the pack. I can understand when people don’t believe me, but I talk like how I see it. You can’t live a lie when you’re on that starting line and I have lived a lie in the amateurs and professional game. I did just enough to win because I had that talent and chip on my shoulder to pull it out, but that ignorant guy doesn’t exist anymore. This is my last chance saloon.” (more…)

He has successfully defended the belt four times since then, three by way of knockout. Kameda is a two-time world champ. He won the WBC Flyweight title in November 2009, but lost it via close decision in his first defense. He then moved up to bantamweight and won his current belt with a December 2010 unanimous decision over Alexander Munoz. He has since made four successful defenses. Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno is the WBA bantamweight “super” champion.

Underdog Sasaki dethrones Yuba

By Joe Koizumi
Photo: Boxing Beat

35-year-old Tadashi Yuba is our national hero in Japan, though he doesn’t belong to the international level any longer. Yuba, a southpaw six-footer, lately registered a great achievement of acquiring four national belts from the lightweight to the middleweight categories. When Yuba announced to defend his 160-pound belt against a novice named Sanosuke Sasaki months ago, it logically looked a terrible mismatch since the challenger would engage in his very first ten rounder. Why is the goddess of victory so cynical and capricious? The unheralded Sasaki (11-1, 5 KOs), 159.75, a former ping-pong player, produced an unexpected and stunning upset by showing a clean knockout over the prohibitive favorite Yuba (41-8-2, 31 KOs), 158.75, with a single right shot at 2:15 of the fourth session on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

Walters-Prescott for WBA title?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

A source has informed Fightnews.com that Jamaican Nicholas Walters (21-0, 17 KOs) could face Colombian Daulis Prescott (26-1, 19 KOs) for the vacant WBA featherweight title after the Panamanian Celestino “Pelenchin” Caballero relinquished the title due to a controversial situation involving his mandatory defense. Walters is currently rated #1 and Prescott is #5. A mandatory fight between Walters and Caballero was slated for December 1 in Kingston, Jamaica after Canelo Promotions won a purse bid.

The WBA executive vice president Gilberto J. Mendoza said, “Let’s respect Caballero’s decision and the doors of the WBA will always be open for Caballero.” One source indicated that WBA might be making a public statement on the Caballero resignation. Today there are plans for a video conference in which Caballero will further explain his decision to the WBA, so the Caballero-WBA story may not be over yet.
