Unbeaten jr welter Chris Algieri ready for Bayan Jargal test

This Saturday night at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, New York undefeated jr welterweight Chris Algieri will step up in class to face his toughest foe to date in Bayan Jargal in a ten round bout that will be broadcast on Azteca America. The show is promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.

Algieri, 11-0 with 6 KOs has been working hard in preparation for this bout and knows that Jargal will be a tough nut to crack. “I feel great and I am very excited for this bout”, said Algieri. “Training has gone well and I feel sharp”

Jargal (15-2-3, 10 KOs) hopes his experience will help him end a two-fight losing streak. “[Algieri] is a tough guy who will bring it the whole fight. He is unorthodox with a great chin but I feel that my boxing fundamentals will nullify his awkward style.” (more…)

Salgado-Saucedo IBF super featherweight clash off; Saucedo irate

The recently announced IBF super featherweight bout between world champion Juan Carlos Salgado and world ranked challenger Fernando David Saucedo is now off. No official word on why but Saucedo certainly didnt take kindly to hearing the news and made the following statement:

“I totally feel disrespected. I believed in the word of the promoter of Salgado and had began training in preparation for this fight. Then I receive the news that they are looking for another opponent. I want to thank the IBF for this opportunity but because of Salgado and his team I’m missing out on this world title fight. It’s obvious that Salgado is scared to fight me. He must have seen videos of me fighting and new I would take his world title from him in his country of Mexico.”

It’s also been reported that Salgado’s team never sent over contracts to Saucedo and are not answering their phone calls. Stay tuned…

Arum, Sulaiman trade barbs over Pacquiao-Marquez

Before Saturday’s welterweight championship fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, WBC President Jose Sulaiman said he saw little chance of Marquez winning the fight, which was for the belt of the rival WBO sanctioning body, and stated it would be “a miracle” if Marquez is victorious. After Marquez nearly pulled off the upset, Arum referred to Sulaiman as an “asshole” at the post-fight press conference.

In a press release issued today, Sulaiman issued the following statement:

Promoter Arum insulted me in the press with a swear that I wouldn’t dare to type out for respect specially to ladies. I think of Bob Arum is one of the greatest Promoters that my eyes have seen, but also that he has no class, has no idea of what a gentleman is, and if he would be subjected to an open heart surgery, the doctors would find no heart. I have tried all my life to be his friend, and have always supported him specially at his rough times, but unfortunately, he does not know either the meaning of that word. He just can’t help it.

WBC/WBO #1 feather Chonlatarn Or Piriyapinyo (40-0, 24 KOs) successfully retained his WBO Asia-Pacific 126 lb title as he scored a third round TKO over Ryuta Miyagi (21-7-4, 16 KOs) on Tuesday at Khunyuan Airfield in Maehongson, Thailand. Japanese Miyagi who ever defeated two former WBA 122 lb title holders as Ryol Li Lee and Yoddamrong Sithyodthong, started well as he aggressively hunted counterpuncher Chonlatarn, launching hard combinations and dominating all of the first two rounds. The turning point occurred in round three when the champion landed a well-time left hook which dropped his contender, then he viciously hunted his foe and floored the Japanese twice more, forcing referee to stop the bout at 2:57. In other action, ABCO female 126lb title holder Sainamdoi Pitaklo-ngen (11-1-1) scored an eighth round unanimous decision over Kaenpetch Manoprungroj. Thongtaeng Muangsima outpointed Keangsaklek Sakchaichok in a six round non-title bout. Also, Susu Sithjadaeng outpointed Tripetch Sor Poonsawat.

DeGale/Groves twinbill moved from London to Liverpool

Frank Warren’s show planned for the ExCeL London on Friday 9th December – joint-headlined by James DeGale and George Groves in separate championship fights – has been switched to the Liverpool Echo Arena on the same date. Due to unforeseen circumstances, ExCeL were unable to stage the event due to their Olympic test event commitment and, with no other London venue available, Ian Congdon from the Liverpool Echo Arena jumped at the chance to stage another international boxing event at the city’s premier venue. Last month Liverpool star Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly fought a tremendous battle for the WBO World Light-Heavyweight title at the venue in one of the best fights seen in recent years, and in July John Murray and Kevin Mitchell were also involved in a thrilling fight at the same venue. DeGale will take on tough Spaniard Jose Guerrero in the first defence of his WBO Intercontinental Super-Middleweight title, while his great rival Groves will defend his Commonwealth title against a challenger to be confirmed.

UFC sues to overturn NY ban on MMA

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and a group of plaintiffs including fighters, fans, trainers and others involved with Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) announced today that they have filed a lawsuit against New York State officials challenging the constitutionality of the state law banning live professional MMA events and associated activities (the “Ban”). The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, challenges the Ban for violating numerous provisions of the United States Constitution, including the First Amendment, the Equal Protection Clause and the Due Process Clause. Specifically, the lawsuit alleges the Ban infringes upon the rights of the fighters who want to publicly exhibit their skills as professionals and express themselves before a live audience, the rights of fans who would like to experience live professional MMA events, and the rights of those who train, publicize or otherwise advance MMA in New York. Plaintiffs point to the following as evidence of the irrational, unconstitutional nature of the Ban: (more…)
