TUF 16 Weekly Recap – Episode 6

The episode begins with the fallout from last week’s fights. Dana walks into Nic Herron-Webb’s locker room to tell him that he thinks he was [expletive]. Roy agrees that Nic was robbed, but offers the old saying “you can’t let it go to the judges.” While Dana is comforting (in his own way), Roy takes the opportunity to criticize Nic’s performance. A few of the Team Nelson members don’t understand why Roy is kicking the guy while he’s down. Julian Lane tells us that he thinks Roy doesn’t understand how to be a coach because he’s still a fighter . . Click here for more by Dan Downes, UFC.com

Cruz defeats Pazos

By Karl Freitag

WBO #4 featherweight Orlando Cruz (19-2-1, 9 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Jorge Pazos (20-5, 13 KOs) on Friday night at the Kissimmee Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Southpaw Cruz, who recently announced he was a “proud gay man” (the first active boxer having pronounced so in boxing history), outboxed Pazos and avoided exchanges in winning by scores of 118-110, 117-111, 118-110. Cruz retained the NABO belt.

Former world champion and WBO #11 jr. welterweight Vicente “El Loco” Mosquera (31-2-1, 17 KOs) won by TKO when the corner of former world title challenger Daniel Attah (26-13-1, 9 KOs) stopped the fight at the end of the fifth round.

Unbeaten super flyweight prospect Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez (11-0, 10 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over Danny Flores (13-2, 8 KOs). The bout was waved off due to punishment taken by Flores.

The Danny Green vs Shane Cameron promotional trail landed in New Zealand this week ahead of their highly anticipated clash for the vacant IBO World Cruiserweight Title on November 21 in Melbourne Australia.

Three time World Champion Danny ‘The Green Machine’ Green (32-5, 28 KOs) and Shane ‘The Mountain Warrior’ Cameron (29-2, 22 KOs) continued to be respectful to each other during the presser.

Kell Brook: “The IBF shot is a huge incentive. It’s massive knowing that I have a fight with Randall Bailey or Devon Alexander lined up after I’ve dealt with Saldivia…Hector is a tough cookie, who keeps coming and chucking shots. He likes to hold his position in the middle of the ring and dictate fights. He’s a big puncher, but if he wants to stand and fight I am more than ready to go toe-to-toe with him, as I know I can outhit him. With the way I am feeling now, he won’t go the distance. I won’t say what round as talk is cheap, but don’t blink tomorrow as you’ll open your eyes and he’ll be sparked out.”

WBC Statement on Morales

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Official Statement: The WBC received several calls in relation to rumors followed by information published in several media outlets which led to rumors and speculations. Promoter Golden Boy stated that after a test by the USADA lab that some irregularities had appeared on the tests taken from Erik Morales. Nobody has addressed any report regarding any incident either to the WBC nor to the New York State Athletic Commission, and we cannot rely on independent publications as this is a WBC world title defense by champion Danny Garcia. Neither the NY Boxing Commission, by a conference with commissioner Ralph Petiello, nor the WBC, our representative Joe Dwyer, made any antidoping test whatsoever. The only authorities on this title fight between the WBC super light champion Danny Garcia and his challenger Erik Morales are the New York State Athletic Commission and the WBC, and the only antidoping rule valid officially for the WBC will be the tests taken either in the dressing room before the fight or after the fight.

———-
Morales told the media, “Wednesday I did all the necessary tests to get a license in New York and I had no problems. I’ve had a very long career in boxing (28 years). I’m clean and I’m fine. It’s a baseless rumor.”

Viloria foresees a victory over “Tyson” Marquez

Viloria-Marquez is LIVE on WealthTV.com November 17th

WBO flyweight world champion Brian Viloria is convinced he will defeat the WBA 112 lbs. champ Hernan “Tyson” Marquez. The Hawaiian Viloria (31-3, 18KOS) and the Mexican Marquez (34-2, 25KOs) will unify their world titles on Saturday, November 17th, at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles in a card presented by Top Rank with Zanfer Promotions and shown live by WealthTV.

Viloria, considered the “Mexican Executioner” since seventeen of his victories are against south of the border opponents, is convinced that there is no disadvantage for him that Marquez is now trained by Robert Garcia. Garcia trained Viloria for a large part of his career. Viloria won world titles under the tutelage of Garcia.

“I am not worried in the least. It has been two years since I have not been with Garcia and I have changed my style and strategies considerably. They in Team Garcia think they know me but they are wrong. I have developed different instincts and talents that Robert never saw and the day of the fight versus ‘Tyson’ they will see,” Viloria stated during the announcement press conference in Los Angeles.

World renowned referee Tony Weeks raises the hands of protagonists AJ “Bazooka” Banal of the Philippines and Pungluang Sor Singyu of Thailand in Friday’s official weigh-in at the Mall of Asia in Pasay City)

By Dennis Principe

Such was not the case for opponent Pungluang Sor Singyu who went over by one pound and needed to jog for a few minutes to shed off the excess. Pungluang eventually made the limit on his second try at exactly 118 lbs.

Banal and Pungluang will battle for the vacant World Boxing Organzation bantamweight crown which was recently vacated by Mexican superstar Jorge Arce. The 12-round title bout will headline “Pinoy Pride XVII: Philippines vs. The World which will happen Saturday night at the MOA Arena. (more…)

Devon Alexander, the former WBC and IBF jr welterweight champion, is always ready for challenges. Whether the fighter is preparing for his title challenge this Saturday against IBF welterweight champion Randall Bailey or indulging himself in preparation for a career in boxing promotion, the fighter is constantly preparing for a challenge. The sparkling new Barclays Center in Brooklyn will house the battle featuring the 25-year old classic boxer/puncher Alexander (23-1, 13 KOs) against the 38-year old one-punch knockout artist Bailey (43-7, 37 KOs).

The contest, originally scheduled for September 8th, was postponed due to a back injury that Bailey suffered in training just a couple of weeks prior to the showdown.

“I’m not sure what to think about that,” stated Alexander. “I can’t say for sure that he didn’t (suffer an injury), but he is getting up there in age.” (more…)

Erik Morales fails random drug test

Ring legend Erik Morales has allegedly tested positive for an undisclosed banned substance according to multiple reports. Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer confirmed “irregularities” in Morales’ “A sample” to si.com but said that Saturday’s Garcia-Morales fight is still on. “Morales is a legendary fighter,” Schaefer told SI. “And really, nobody deserves a rush to judgement. You are innocent until proven guilty.” The likely scenario is the fight goes on and the analysis from the “B sample” will come back next week. The random drug testing was conducted by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

Quotes from the final press conference for this Saturday’s four world title fight extravaganza as boxing returns to Brooklyn at the brand new Barclays Center.

Danny Garcia, Unified Super Lightweight World Champion: “Saturday night, at Barclays [Center], will keep these belts here on the East Coast. See you Saturday night. I want to thank God for giving me an opportunity to be here and showcase my skills on this level. I want to thank my dad, my family who helped me get through camp. I had about a 10-week camp, a hard, strong camp. Got my rounds in sparring and miles in running. Did my conditioning. I put in the hard work. I sacrificed all the things I love to do just to perform and give the fans at the Barclays Center a great fight. I’m ready. I’m going to keep the belts here on the East Coast, and I will see on Saturday.”

Erik Morales, Former World Champion and Future Hall of Famer: “It is an honor to be in New York for the first time fighting to regain my title. It is hard to be in an arena with such of great fighters, but I’m here, and trust me I’m ready. And certainly, each and every one of them is going to do the best that they possibly can to steal the night. I have been training very hard for Saturday. I’ve done tremendous preparation. I’ll assure you it is going to be an explosive night. What you saw in March, it is definitely not what you are going to see on Saturday. I assure you I will regain my title. (more…)

BJ Flores targets Marco Huck

WBO #1 cruiserweight BJ Flores (28-1-1, 18 KOs) has now set his sights on highly regarded WBO champion Marco Huck of Germany. “He is the champion and I am WBO #1 challenger. It’s no secret this is a fight I have wanted for a very long time”, said Flores. “After Huck KOs Firat Arslan I want him next. Huck is very tough and very well-conditioned. He is very strong and very confident. He has a great team around him and I respect him as a fighter. But any time he has fought anyone who can box he has had troubles. Steve Cunningham, Denis Lebedev and Ola Afalobi all gave him fits. I have quietly changed my entire boxing style. I have tried to fly under the radar and go back to the drawing board and get better. I have fought 4 times in the last year and feel sharp and ready. I have 3 KOs against decent opposition. I WANT a step up! NO ONE will expect me to beat him. It will be an absolute shocker!!
