Orlando Salido targets Francisco Vargas

After feeling the disappointment of not getting a third fight with Rocky Martinez, two-time world champion Orlando “Siri” Salido has now set his sights on WBC super featherweight world champion and fellow Mexican Francisco “Bandido” Vargas. “It’s very disappointing to not get the Martinez fight. I felt like there what some unfinished business between us, but unfortunately it’s not going to happen and I need to move on,” said Salido who had forgone the holidays to train for a fight that was earmarked for late February or early March.

Salido and Martinez had two very memorable fights in 2015, with the Puerto Rican winning the first one in Puerto Rico in April and then in an all-out war in September in Las Vegas that was declare a draw, but the most media and press felt the Mexican won.

“I have no doubt that I won the second fight. He got lucky with the draw but acted like he had won. I was ready to go for a third fight not only for me but for the fans. I am sure that the third would have been better the first two,” added Salido. (more…)

Pacquiao-Bradley 3: The Log in the Ocean

pacquiao-bradley3
By Bill Dwyre

So much of sports these days is image-building. Not for world champion boxer Tim Bradley. He spends exactly zero time even thinking about that.

He is fond of saying, “I’m happy to be a C-Class celebrity.”

Proof of that comes easily.

It is a Thursday noon in Indio, lunchtime at a deli across the street from where Palm Springs native Bradley has his training gym. Today, there is no training. That will begin Feb. 15 for his April 9 rubber match with Manny Pacquiao.

Bradley drives up in a big white van. His wife and business manager, Monica, is along. That’s it. No entourage. No security guards. No hangers-on, wearing caps that proclaim Bradley as the greatest or the richest. Just Monica and Tim, ready for lunch.

“I can go to dinner with my wife and a couple of people might stop by and shake my hand or say hello,” he says, “but nothing more. (more…)

Szpilka Uncensored: Message for fans and Wilder-Povetkin prediction

By Przemek Garczarczyk

“I’ll live, everything is OK. I’m a little disappointed with myself, because I had such a great hopes,” said Artur Szpilka (20-2, 15 KO) in today’s message. Szpilka who had to postpone his flight from NYC to Houston (doctors orders) was very thankful to all his fans. “Thanks for all the words of support – I’ll be back stronger, no doubt. This is what happens when you’re a heavyweight – one punch and you’re done. After Deontay hit me, I was out for like 45 seconds and I don’t remember the last couple of rounds before this KO. Respect to Wilder – I didn’t expect him to counter-punch me. Now I’ll fly to Poland for my right hand surgery, and when I’m completely healthy, try my chances fighting for the IBF belt.”

How quickly did “The Pin” recover? In exclusive video of his return from the hospital to New York hotel, Szpilka explained to his coach Ronnie Shields that he gave him “100 percent what I have.” Also, using a couple of X-rated words, he predicted what will happen to the WBC champion when he fights mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.

Wilder-Szpilka/Martin-Glazkov wrap-up

By Matt Richardson

“My right hand is a monster. Sometimes I get scared of it myself.”

Those were the words of WBC heavyweight titleholder Deontay Wilder early Sunday morning following Wilder’s brutal knockout of Artur Szpilka at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The fight was held in front of 12,668 fans (the second largest crowd ever for a boxing event at the venue) and was televised live on Showtime.

“I knew I was winning,” Wilder said. “I knew it was pretty close but that didn’t bother me. I’m definitely looking forward to coming here again and putting my title on the line once more.”

As for when or against who that would be, no one knows for sure. Russian Alexander Povetkin is Wilder’s mandatory challenger if he wants to keep his belt and Povetkin was in attendance Saturday night to watch Wilder in person. (more…)

Undefeated heavyweight Greg Corbin of Dallas had his hands full against tough Roberto Santos of Mexico, but pounded out a victory in his hometown to win the North America Midwest Association championship at Gas Monkey Live. Both boxers started out slowly but both came to fight and over time the pace steadily increased into a solid, entertaining battle between two big men with respectable won-loss records. Early on these big men were moving in slow motion but both relied on solid boxing skills to rally the crowd and battle for eight rounds leading to Corbin’s unanimous-decision victory.

Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation judges Don Griffin and Javier Alvarez scored the bout 80-72 and Javier Martinez scored it 79-73, giving the fifth round to Santos. (more…)

Charles Martin: I want to unify the titles

“I want to unify the titles,” says newly crowned IBF world heavyweight champion Charles Martin (23-0-1, 21 KOs). “We didn’t even fight tonight. I want another fighter. I want Tyson Fury!”

Martin, the sixth southpaw heavyweight champion in boxing history and the second current American heavyweight titlist, claimed the vacant belt when opponent Czar Glazkov quit in round three due to a knee injury. “I still wanted to fight,” Martin said. “We trained for 12 rounds and we were going to get stronger as the rounds went on. He just kind of twisted his ankle, it looked like. But every time I hit him in the body and his legs were flying. It’s boxing. That was a football injury. I’m sorry for him. It’s unfortunate he couldn’t continue the fight.”

Glazkov, who suffered a torn ACL, pleaded his case for a rematch while being inspected by doctors in his locker room. “This should have been my belt,” Glazkov said. “I already had him figured out. I slipped and felt a sharp pain in my right knee and felt it give it out. I’m very upset. I want a rematch when I recover.”

David Haye wants to fight again in three months

Looking at possible title shot against Wilder, Martin or the Chagaev-Browne winner

hayedemori300b
By James Slater

Former WBA heavyweight ruler David Haye was ruthless in destroying a brave but woefully overmatched Mark de Mori last night inside a sold-out O2 Arena in London. Weighing his heaviest ever, Haye looked both fast and powerful in bagging the quick and impressive one-round blast out. Now, as he made clear in speaking at the post-fight press conference, Haye wants to both stay active and then get a title shot soon.

“Maybe two or three fights before a title fight and if the guys [Deontay Wilder and new IBF ruler Charles Martin] are interested. You have the WBC and IBF champions, and Tyson Fury is the WBA and WBO champion. The division is wide open. It will be interesting how the Fury-Klitschko rematch pans out. Lucas Browne fights Ruslan Chagaev for the WBA interim title, so there are a lot of different options for me and there’s no one dominant heavyweight out there.” (more…)

Requiem for Japanese featherweight Shigeji Kaneko

By Joe Koizumi

More than five hundred people attended a funeral service of former Orient featherweight champion Shigeji Kaneko last Saturday (January 9) at the Himonya Church in Tokyo, Japan. Kaneko, 84, passed away on January 2 and was missed by his sons Kentaro and Kenji who succeeded his Keneko Boxing Gym that recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary since Shigeji’s establishment after hanging up gloves for good in 1958.

Keneko, whose overall record was 54-10-1 with 33 knockouts, professionally fought from 1950 to 1958 to be only a Japanese ringman then world-rated #6 by the NBA (original of the present WBA) and #9 by The Ring Magazine at his prime. Well remembered was Kaneko through his four hard-fought competitions with future world titlist Gabriel “Flash” Elorde, all of which the Japanese warrior won on points to his credit.

It was sixty years ago that world featherweight champ Sandy Saddler made an Asian tour to campaign in Japan and the Philippines as his forerunner Sugar Ray Robinson did in Europe in 1951. Filipino promoter Papa Lope Sarreal made a deal with Sandy’s manager Charley Johnston to have the champ engage in a couple of non-title bouts in just two weeks. (more…)

James and Toni Kraft made history Saturday night in Munich, Germany, by becoming the first brothers to win WBC Youth World Championships on the same night.

First, 19-year-old James Kraft stopped Peter Orlik in the third round to win the vacant WBC Youth World Light Heavyweight Championship. Only one and a half hours later, his 22-year-old brother Toni Kraft knocked out Ferenc Albert in round seven and crowned himself WBC Youth World Cruiserweight Champion.

Both brothers clearly dominated their opponents forcing referees Daniel Van de Wiele (James) and Juergen Langos (Toni) to stop their respective fights.

On the undercard Vartan Avetisyan stopped Balasz Horvath to win the vacant WBC Eurasia Pacific Light Heavyweight Championship.

The event was promoted by Alexander Petkovic (Petko’s Box-Promotion) in front of a sold-out crowd of 2,000 fans at Bavaria Film Studios. Because the show took place on the second anniversary of the passing of WBC President Jose Sulaiman there was a special tribute to and ten-count for Don Jose before the main event bouts.

Deontay Wilder: I knew I was winning. I knew it was pretty close but that didn’t bother me. My right hand is a monster. Sometimes I get scared of it myself.

Wilder on Povetkin: I’m looking forward to getting him out of his zone and coming to America. It’s too cold in Russia.

Promoter Lou DiBella: Povetkin is the mandatory. We’ve had discussions with their people and we’ll continue to have discussions with their people.

Charles Martin: It’s still soaking in. A lot of hard work. It was a long camp, 11 weeks. I had bad intentions on everything I was throwing. I’m a patient fighter and I knew we had 12 rounds to go and I was going to catch up to him eventually.

Derek Chisora was in attendance and challenged Martin to a fight. Martin said he would consider it. Both guys were respectful of one another.

Glazkov wasn’t able to attend due to his injury and Szpilka was sent to the hospital as a precautionary measure but he was speaking while on the stretcher and appears to be OK.

Unbeaten Californian Charles Martin (23-0-1, 21 KOs) won the vacant IBF heavyweight title with a third round stoppage of the previously undefeated Vyacheslav Glazkov. After a quiet two rounds in which neither fighter made much of an effort, Glazkov tripped and hit the canvas. He badly twisted his right knee in the process. He rose unsteadily and limped to his corner but when the referee asked him if he could go on, Glazkov shook (21-1-1, 13 KOs) his head no. The fight was stopped at the 1:50 mark of the frame. A torn ACL in the right knee was the official reason for the fight being halted. photos
