Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez is not the only Argentine involved in a meaningful fight against a Mexican rival on September 15th. On the same night and in the same city, power puncher Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (31-3, 28 KOs) faces Jesus Soto-Karass (26-7-3, 17 KOs) in a bout that is sure to be an all action slugfest.

Maidana, a two time WBA light welterweight champion, is making a second attempt at welterweight after losing his most recent bout in that division against Devon Alexander in February. Fightnews.com caught up with Maidana on Friday, and the always humble fighter shared his thoughts on training with former IBF 130lb champ Robert Garcia, why he ended up training himself for his last bout, and his thoughts on the competing cards on September 15th.

Dominick Cruz stuck on the sidelines

Stuck on the sidelines, Dominick Cruz is in the midst of the toughest fight of his career.

Four months after a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) forced him out of a summer title defense against his nemesis and fellow Ultimate Fighter coach Urijah Faber, the UFC bantamweight champion is fighting his body and his mind as he works towards a clean bill of health. He knows that he taking the right steps – following his physical therapist’s orders, adhering to the rehabilitation schedule set out for him, giving the new construction of his knee time to fuse and strengthen – but he still can’t shake the feeling that he’s not doing enough. . . .

There had been talks for Linares to go against three-time world champion Humberto “Zorrita” Soto but apparently the camps failed to reach an agreement on whether the bout would be at super lightweight or lightweight. Linares is coming off two consecutive knockout losses to Antonio DeMarco and Sergio “Yeyo” Thompson.

Josesito ready for showdown against Canelo

By Miguel Maravilla

Last June, current WBC Silver welterweight champion Josesito Lopez (30-4, 18 KOs) came in to the ring as a big underdog as he faced, “Vicious” Victor Ortiz at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Lopez was a replacement after Ortiz’ original opponent Andre Berto tested positive for a banned substance. Josesito, moving up a weight division, found himself facing the physically biggest opponent of his career in Ortiz, who already had a bout lined up to face Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. But Josesito pulled off the upset. After nine rounds of non-stop action, citing a broken jaw Ortiz didn’t come out for the tenth round. That gave Lopez the role of spoiler, as well as his Rocky moment in pulling the upset and winning the WBC Silver welterweight title. Canelo seated at ringside shook his head in disbelief. Ultimately it was decided that Josesito would move up in weight again to face Alvarez on September 15.

Fightnews.com spoke with “The Pride of Riverside, California” to get his view on the amazing developments in his career in recent months. (more…)

Crossroads fight to determine PA champ

Report and photos by John DiSanto
Philly Boxing History (.com)

A true crossroads fight is brewing in Chester, PA. On Friday night, Philly’s favorite warhorse, Victor Vasquez and rising prospect Naim Nelson will face off in a 10-round bout for the Pennsylvania Lightweight Championship at Harrah’s Racetrack and Casino in Chester, PA. The match is an intriguing one with the battle tested Vasquez, 15-6-1 (7 KO) bringing the grit and experience, while the young Nelson, 7-0 (1 KO), brings the undefeated record and the fresh legs. On paper, the fight is a tough one to call. Each fighter can win it, but both need a good night and the right plan to pull it off.

Vasquez is famous around Philly for his grueling inside wars. He can box but usually before long his fights become wars, complete with lumps, bruises, and blood – both his and his opponent’s. Vasquez is proficient at breaking his opponents down with good body work and tremendous toughness. However, he can be out-boxed, especially by tall movers.

Nelson is a boxer that can be described that way. He has speed and could conceivably stay at a distance and give Vasquez fits. But can he do it for 10 rounds? (more…)

By Felipe Leon at ringside

History was made on Saturday night when the youngest brother of the famed Morales dynasty, super flyweight Ivan “Terrible II” Morales, made his US debut in front of a packed house at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California. Ivan (18-0, 12KOs), the younger brother of former world champions Erik and Diego Morales, took the biggest step of his career when he earned a tough unanimous decision over former world title challenger Luis “Titi” Maldonado (36-10-1, 27KOs) in the ten round main event. With the win Morales defended his WBC International Silver super flyweight title for the first time. The bout was broadcast by Telefutura’s “Solo Boxeo Tecate” and presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Patrick Ortiz’s Ringside Ticket, Inc.

After a slow first round in which both were content to circle around each other, the veteran Maldonado of Mexicali, Mexico, who challenged Nonito Donaire, Vic Darchinyan and Fernando Montiel for titles but came up short every time, threw a curve ball and turned southpaw to mimic Morales’ natural stance.

Fonfara-Karpency for IBO light heavyweight title

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Fightnews.com has learned that Andrzej Fonfara (22-2, 12 KOs), who has won ten straight fights (9 by KO) since moving to the light heavyweight division and Tommy Karpency (21-3, 14 KOs), who in his last fight lost a WBO championship bout, will battle for vacant IBO title on November 16 in Chicago. This information was confirmed by Fonfara and members of his team.

After a defining win over Glen Johnson, many of the observers of Fonfara talent were expecting this 24-year old fighter to have some easier tune-up style fight. It would be understandable, taking into consideration quality of Fonfara last opponent and tough, 10-week camp he went through preparing for one of the most demanding fighter in his division. But both Fonfara and his team decided to not go the ease route, negotiating with current WBO champion Nathan Cleverly (24-0, 11 KO) and always dangerous and very experienced Allan Green (31-4, 21 KO). In the end, fighting for the IBO title in his American hometown, Chicago was a too good option to pass it by. “I’m already training for this fight, again it will be 10-week affair because after the last one I felt so strong I could fight Glen Johnson for 20 rounds and still have something left” – said Fonfara. “Some people are saying that me being just 24 means I can take things easy. I disagree. I want this IBO title fight be the first one of many in my career. There’s for me the only way to move forward as a fighter.”

“Ironbound Throwdown” postfight presser

Adamek: I was the better fighter

By Matt Richardson

Sportsmanship and mutual respect was the theme of a subdued post-fight press conference early Saturday evening just minutes after former two-division title-holder Tomasz Adamek rose from a second round knockdown to stop Travis Walker in a wild heavyweight fight at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Both Adamek and Walker traded knockdowns in a vicious second round before Adamek bounced back to stop Walker on his feet in the fifth.

“Travis is a great fighter,” said Adamek (47-2, 29 KO’s). “I was the better fighter today. I felt he was weaker and weaker with every punch I hit him with. Thank you to Travis because we made a good fight for everybody.”

“I’m kind of known for getting excited after I hurt somebody,” said a visibly saddened Walker, who had a similarly thrilling fight with Chris Arreola in 2009. “I’ve been waiting for that moment my whole career. I forced it instead of just letting it come.” (more…)

On the night his close friend lost the most important fight of his career, Maurice Weber made the fourth successful appearance inside the ring since his comeback from a three-year, injury-related layoff last year. Fighting on the undercard of Felix Sturm’s title unification loss to Australian Daniel Geale, Weber, who entered the ring under the banner of Sturm Box-Promotion, easily dispatched a game but severely outmatched Andrei Dolhozhyieu in three rounds. In 2008, the German suffered a severe hand injury, which could have cost him his professional career. But Weber, who is the reigning German light middleweight champion, never gave up and is now working on his dream to become a big name in boxing. A couple days after his 16th win in his 18th bout (one loss, one draw) in Oberhausen, Germany, FightNews caught up with the talented fighter to talk about his career, the injury and his plans for the future and his friend’s loss to Geale.

Sinyabi retains SA junior featherweight title

By Ron Jackson

Macbute Sinyabi retained his SA junior featherweight title when he beat Oscar Chauke on a unanimous 12 round points decision at the Orient Theatre on Sunday afternoon. Sinyabi won with scores of 117-112, 116-114 and 118-112 but this was not a true reflection of the fight which was much closer. The 31-year-old Chauke (55.30kg) made a fast start as he outboxed the champion through the first six rounds. However, he appeared to tire in the later rounds and let the 24-year-old Sinyabi (55.15kg) come back into the fight. Making the eighth defence of his national belt, Sinyabe had to go 12 rounds for the first time in his career to take his record to 19 wins, 2 losses and 18 wins inside the distance.

Chauke 29-7-2; 10 a former SA and World Boxing Foundation junior featherweight champion possibly felt he had done enough to take the title and is entitled to a rematch.

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over previously unbeaten Manuel Charr (21-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Olimpiyskiy Arena in Moscow, Russia. The much taller Klitschko kept Charr at the end of his jab and was pretty much in control of the fight. Charr was down at the end of round two from a blow to the top of the head. The bout was immediately stopped by the referee and ring doctor after a cut suffered by Charr over his right eye in round four. Charr was extremely angry about the stoppage and his corner was never given a chance to try to stop the blood.

Unbeaten heavyweight terror Magomed Abdusalamov (16-0, 16 KOs) survived a scare against 42-year-old former world title challenger Jameel McCline (41-13-3, 24 KOs). McCline dropped Abdusalamov almost immediately with a hard right hand. Abdusalamov was hurt but beat the count, then stormed back to floor McCline for the count in round two. Time 1:57.

Maldonado was the busier of the two as he pushed forward on his fellow southpaw for the majority of the entertaining face off while Morales scored with the better and harder punches especially a straight lefts flush to the chin of the veteran fighter.
