Unbeaten Matsumoto to face NABF champ May

Report & Photo by Joe Koizumi

We will see a very competitive confrontation of world-rated contenders tonight (Thursday) in Tokyo, Japan, as unbeaten WBC#10/WBA#11/IBF#8/WBO#11 Ryo Matsumoto (14-0, 12 KOs) will square off against current NABF bantam ruler, WBC#10 Luis May (17-8-1, 7 KOs), from Mexico, over an eight-round competition beneath a national feather title bout. Matsumoto, 21, is a tall hard-puncher who once took the national high school championship prior to his entry into the paid ranks. Since his pro debut under Ohashi Promotions, the explosive thin man registered seven knockouts in a row and acquired the OPBF super-fly belt by dispatching the world-rated Thailander Rusalee Samor in the twelfth and final session last December. He renounced the regional belt to pave the way for his club-mate Takuma Inoue, who gained it by beating Filipino lefty Mark Anthony Gerald this July. Matsumoto, a lanky aggressive puncher, loves swapping punches toe-to-toe with his opposition, and defeated former world challenger Hiroyuki Hisataka on points in his tenth pro bout in April of the previous year. The youngster then quickly demolished ex-world titlist Denkaosen Kaovichit last September. He is going to be a bright prospect. (more…)

Yaegashi to appear in tune-up bout against Indonesian Said

Report & Photo by Joe Koizumi

Why is Akira Yaegashi so popular among fight fans here in Japan? It’s because of his tremendous gameness and fighting spirit shown in every fight, regardless of result. Unlike our world champs such as Uchiyama, Yamanaka, Ioka and Inoue who are scientific hard-punchers of hitting without getting hit, Yaegashi recklessly mixed it up to exchange hot rallies with Roman Gonzalez, Pedro Guevara, Kazuto Ioka and Pornsawan Porpramook. Whenever you come and see his fight, you will get your money’s worth in watching his do-or-die performance even against formidable opposition. That’s Yaegashi, two-time world champ who had acquired the world belts in the 105-pound and 112-pound categories. The 32-year-old veteran’s unfinished business is to obtain the 108-pound throne to be a triple-crown winner before hanging up gloves for good. (more…)

Don King could torpedo Mosley-Mayorga PPV

By TMZSports.com

“Sugar” Shane Mosley is power-dialing his travel agent right now to get on a flight to Miami … in a last ditch effort to take down Don King in court — and save his comeback fight. TMZ Sports has learned Mosley got bad news from Wednesday’s hearing in a Miami federal court — where King is trying to shut down Mosley’s Aug. 29 bout with Ricardo Mayorga. Shane is not only the main event, he’s also promoting the fight — but King claims Mayorga is still one of his fighters. Our Mosley sources say after today’s hearing … Shane’s legal team feels like King is making headway, and could succeed in stopping the fight. We’re told Shane is trying to get on a flight, and plans to testify in court on Thursday. Should be interesting — we’re told King will also be in court.

He reminded me a lot of Bernard Hopkins. The game plan was excellent set up by the professor Angelo Hyder.”

“The fights on the undercard were worthy of main events on other cards, and co-promoting with Green Machine Promotions was an awesome experience! The team are real pros.”

Minto targets Green

Brian “The Beast” Minto has entered into a management contract with Australian-based Xcite Fight Promotions. The rugged Pennsylvanian has immediately set his sights on Australia’s Danny Green. Green, who was victorious in his overnight victory against Argentina’s Roberto Balonti by way of points, competes in the cruiserweight division.

“Firstly, I’m very excited to be teaming up with Matt Clark and Xcite Fight and getting myself back into the mix,” said Minto. “I’ve been wanting more direction in my career and I’m joining a team that is moving forward. I’ve fought all over the world and I would have no problems in facing Green in Australia. Danny is a tough guy and I respect him immensely. It’s great to see him back in the ring and it’s good for boxing in that part of the world. We both have a great win against Shane Cameron and we are both aggressive come forward boxers. I’ve fought in New Zealand on three separate occasions and I’ve beaten a couple of other Aussies already in my career. It’s a fight that will put bums on seats, have the interest of television and it’s a guaranteed war. I congratulate Danny on his recent win but he’s in my sights”.

McWilliams Arroyo pulls out of Saturday fight

Flyweight world contender McWilliams Arroyo will not fight this Saturday in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, because he is heading to an IBF elimination bout against Johnriel Casimero soon in the United States. Arroyo (16-2, 14 KOs) was supposed to fight an eight round bout this Saturday at the Tomas Dones Coliseum, but the IBF ordered an elimination fight with the #1 ranked Johnriel Casimero, and the 2008 Olympian will go to that fight instead.

“We were negotiating several things for McWilliams, one of which was the possibility of facing world champion Chocolatito Gonzalez but that didn’t materialize, also this IBF elimination. We wanted McWilliams active in August, but the IBF ordered this bout with the number one ranked and we are going to this opportunity,” said Peter Rivera, vice president of PR Best Boxing Promotions. McWilliams is currently ranked number four in the IBF and in 2014 lost a close and controversial split decision to IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng in Thailand. (more…)

“A San Francisco attorney named Sydney Hall brought Manny Pacquiao to my attention 15 years ago,” said Lewkowicz. “None of the major promoters paid attention, but we saw what a talent he was. I was working as a matchmaker for (then promoter) Murad Muhammad, and I convinced him to sign Manny and bring him to America. Now, as a promoter, I am bringing his close family here for the first time and I strongly believe this young man will make a big statement in our sport.”

As soon as Dapidrani’s visa is finalized, he will live in Las Vegas, sharing an apartment with former world champion Jonriel Casimero. He will also share a trainer with Casimero and join the stable of trainer Jun Agrabio.
