Ruiz ready for Perez

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican prospect Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz (26-1, 25 KOs) is motivated and ready for his fight on Saturday against Nicaraguan Alvaro Perez (19-2-1, 12 KOs) for the WBA interim bantamweight world title at the Estadio Olimpico Neza 86 in Mexico City. “I’m ready for this fight and look for other important fights. It’s my first big test and I trained hard for this opportunity. This title is important to me, my family and to Mexico. I’ve been training since October. I’m waiting for this opportunity and we can’t fail,” stated Ruiz.

Promoter Hector Garcia and matchmaker Sampson Lewkowicz have high hopes for Ruiz. “We have great confidence in that fighter,” said Lewkowicz. “He began at flyweight, then went to super flyweight and now we decided to be at bantamweight. He comes from a family of strong fighters such as Edel and Heriberto and is trained his father. I think he’s very motivated and get known and have big world title fights.”

Vane Martirosyan Update

By Francisco Salazar

It almost seems like yesterday when unbeaten Vanes Martirosyan (28-0, 17 KOs) had his hand raised before about 30,000 fans at Yankee Stadium with his victory over previously-unbeaten Joe Greene. However, it has been over seven months since unbeaten Martirosyan has stepped inside the ring. Yes, that is seven months. The wait was supposed to end on Saturday, February 5th, as Martirosyan was supposed to fight at the Activities Center in Maywood, CA. Martirosyan was excited, so were numerous fight fans, and a viewing audience that would watch on Fox Sports Net’s popular “Top Rank Live” series. Unfortunately, the Armenian-American fighter will have to wait longer for a fight to materialize. (more…)

Mayorga-Cotto erupts

Photo: Chris Farina/Top Rank

Hall of Fame Top Rank promoter Bob Arum called a halt to the photo posedown between WBA super welterweight champion Miguel Cotto and two-division world champion Ricardo Mayorga after Mayorga shoved Cotto during a press conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico Thursday to announce their upcoming world title fight on March 12, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Ricardo Mayorga: “I respect your mother but I don’t want her to suffer anymore. She cannot take any more of those beatings you’ve been taking. I will finish you off and your mother will be in peace at last. This won’t take me long, about four rounds on March 12.”

Miguel Cotto: “You have about seven more weeks to talk. Get it all out. Keep talking. Then we will go into the ring. That’s when your talking stops.”

Cotto brought the WBA Super Champion’s belt (which looks different from the usual WBA title belt). Mayorga first went for the belt, then cracked Cotto across the chest. Bob Arum immediately announced no more posing for photographs

Jones back as HBO analyst

Roy Jones Jr. has reached an agreement with HBO Sports and will rejoin the network as permanent expert analyst on the late-night HBO BOXING AFTER DARK series, it was announced today by Rick Bernstein, senior vice president and executive producer, HBO Sports. “We were not searching for a permanent analyst on the BOXING AFTER DARK series, but Roy simply blew us away with his performance as a guest analyst last year and we decided it’s time to bring him back,” said Bernstein. “This will be a seamless transition for a person who has been a member of the HBO family since 1992 and will enhance our telecasts.” The 42-year-old Jones previously served as a boxing analyst at the network from 1996 to 2005, working primarily on the late-night franchise. In returning to his former role, Jones will be teamed with HBO veterans Bob Papa and Max Kellerman on BOXING AFTER DARK. Jones Jr. returns to HBO on Feb. 19 for the season premiere of BOXING AFTER DARK as bantamweight stars Fernando Montiel and Nonito Donaire collide in the main event (9:45 p.m. ET/PT). He will join Papa and Kellerman at ringside in Las Vegas along with unofficial scorer Harold Lederman.

Mayorga returns to the spotlight

By Matt Richardson
Photos: David Martin Warr/DKP

It’s been more than two years since Ricardo Mayorga was in the boxing spotlight. In fact, the last time the former welterweight and junior middleweight champion was in a big fight on a big stage, he was laid out on his back; knocked out in the final seconds of a 12-round bout with Shane Mosley. But while the time away from the sport may have softened Mayorga’s stomach and muscles, it’s done little to hamper his infamous trash-talking. This was clearly evident on Wednesday morning in New York City when promoters Bob Arum and Don King came together to announce a fight between Mayorga (29-7-1, 23 KO’s) and current WBA junior middleweight title-holder Miguel Cotto (35-2, 28 KO’s).

The fight will be broadcast on SHOWTIME Pay-Per-View on March 12, live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will only be Mayorga’s second fight since losing to Mosley in September of 2008. But according to Mayorga, it’s no big deal. “This isn’t a huge fight for me,” the boxer explained to Fightnews. “This is a fight like I just took in December against a Mike Walker-level of opponent. This guy’s not dangerous. This is not a big fight for me.” (more…)

Khan still seeking opponent

European lightweight champion John Murray (30-0, 18 KOs) is the latest name mentioned as a possible challenger against WBA super lightweight champion Amir Khan on April 16th at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England. Murray would be moving up to junior welterweight for the match. A clash with European light welterweight beltholder Paul McCloskey fell through and McCloskey’s promoter Barry Hearn later termed the Khan camp’s offer as “a joke” although he didn’t specify any numbers. Previously negotiations broke down with the handlers of Lamont Peterson. Breidis Prescott, who kayoed Khan in 54 seconds in 2008, has repeatedly been calling out Khan. Even though Prescott’s stock has largely plummeted since he beat Khan with two straight losses in 2009 and two meaningless fights against journeymen in 2010, he still may be the most compelling option.

Ashley tops Hoy in Brooklyn

The gamble by Maureen Shea’s Pandora Promotions and Global Boxing Promotions hosted the first female main event in New York City history Wednesday night at the Masonic Temple in Brooklyn, NY. In the main event, WBC super featherweight number one contender Alicia “Slick” Ashley (16-9-1, 1 KO) lived up to her nickname by using awkward movement and inventive angles to stay one step ahead of Crystal “The Baby-Faced Assassin” Hoy. Hoy was the aggressor throughout and found some success with left hooks and over hand rights, but Ashley’s jab controlled the bout. Ashley scored a knockdown in the eighth round on a left hook and closed the fight strong. The scores were 80-71 and 79-72 twice. (more…)
