Dib vows to avenge loss to Gradovich and bring IBF featherweight title back to Australia

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib is confident he has the fight plan and preparation to regain the world IBF 126 pound title from American based Russian, Evgeny Gradovich, who captured the championship from Dib earlier this year. The Australian has done his homework in the gym and says he will bring the IBF championship back to Australia after the November 23 showdown with Gradovich.

“My mind has been in overdrive since I fought him back in March and I can’t wait to get out there and even up the ledger with this guy,” Dib said before flying out to China. “He got away with the last one, it was a close decision. Kudos to him, he worked extremely hard and won the fight fair and square, but I’m looking forward to getting out there and evening up the score with him. I’m going to fight and box a lot better this time around. I’ll make the right adjustments to make sure I secure the victory and bring the title back to Australia.”

Dib’s entourage includes Olympian John Steffensen, Emaid Dib who is the manager and his promoter rapper 50 Cent. “That’s the one thing that’s amazing about 50 Cent, he stayed loyal and stayed by me even in defeat,” Dib said. “We’re going to meet up in China and I can’t wait to link up and get down to business.”

Fury blasts Haye, takes aim at Wilder

Unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury has blasted former world champion David Haye after Haye pulled out of their all British megafight for the second time. “I’m sick of his lame excuses,” Fury fumed to the Daily Mirror. “We knew David Haye wouldn’t take the fight. He’s a laughing stock. He is a celebrity wannabe boxer, who wants to pick and choose his opponents, maybe get beaten and cash his cheque afterwards. He should have retired when he said he was going to. He has turned boxing into a joke with his antics.”

Team Fury is now aiming to face unbeaten Deontay Wilder on February 8 instead of Haye and the Wilder camp is interested. Jay Deas, trainer and advisor to Wilder tweeted “@BronzeBomber wants it, so do I. Fury-Wilder HUGE fight. We will travel to fight in UK. Find a table and lets sit down at it and talk.”

Uebayashi defeats OPBF #12 Yap

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

Unbeaten ex-amateur champ Naoto Uebayashi (4-0-1, 2 KOs), 122, gamely mixed it up, positively attacked more experienced Filipino, OPBF#12 Mark John Yap (19-10, 9 KOs), 121.5, and pounded out a unanimous decision (79-73, 79-74, 77-76) over eight hard-fought rounds on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. Uebayashi, 26, previously took six national amateur championships prior to entering the paid ranks, and faced the toughest opponent since his debut.

Uebayashi, whose amateur mark was 88-14 with 47 stoppages, kept stalking the Filipino footworker and occasionally landed solid left hooks over Yap’s straight rights like Nonito Donaire against Francisco Montiel. They swapped punches to entertain the crowd, but Uebayashi looked more effective in hurting the opponent with more powerful left hooks. In the closing seconds of the seventh, Uebayashi almost stunned Yap with a looping left with the bell coming to his rescue. This important triumph will have Uebayashi rated in the next OPBF super-bantam ratings. The gutsy prospect is handled by ex-WBA champs Shinji Takahara and Takanori Hatakeyama as co-managers.

Pacquiao-Rios Quotes from Macau

Fighter of the Decade Manny “Pacman” Pacquao and former world champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios Are back together – almost – at least in the same hotel, ensconced inside luxury suites at The Venetian Macao. Boxing’s top-two pound-for pound all-action superstars will make their Grand Arrivals – full of pomp and circumstance — Tuesday night – in Prime Time – at the Main Porte Cochere of the host resort. Rios will make his entrance, greeting his fans and meeting with dignitaries, at 9:00 p.m. local time, followed by Pacquiao at 9:30 p.m.

Upon their arrival at Macau International Airport on Monday evening, Pacquiao and Hall of Fame trainer World-Famous Freddie Roach had this to say:

Manny Pacquiao: “Am I confident for my fight with Rios? I am more than confident. Rios is bigger than me. Remember Goliath was bigger than David and yet David needed just one stone to fell the giant. I enter this fight stronger than ever. I have the strength of my country and my people coursing through my body. I fight for them, not for me. I fight for their glory, not mine.” (more…)

Carl Froch believes his experience of his epic win over Mikkel Kessler in May will give him the edge when he defends his WBA and IBF World Super Middleweight titles against George Groves this Saturday at the sold-out Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, live on AWE and AWEtv.com. Froch defeated Kessler in their titanic rematch at The O2 in front of a capacity crowd in London, and the four-time World champion says he thrives on the sensation of lifting belts in front of a packed out Arena.

“There’s no greater feeling than standing victorious in the Arena, especially in front of a sell-out crowd with 20,000 people cheering your name,” said Froch. “You’re stood in the middle of that ring, you’re cut and bruised, got a nose bleed but you’re a champion. You’re looking around at a packed house. You’ve had 12 weeks in a training camp and you’ve had an unbelievable fight – I’m talking about the Kessler rematch – that sort of feeling, those sorts of nights. Money can’t buy that, there’s nothing else you can do, you can’t go to a fair ground and ride a roller coaster to get that feeling. (more…)

Crespin struggles for win in NM

Ringside by Gerardo Martinez

In front of a crowd of about 600 fans inside the PAL Auditorium in Albuquerque, NM, Las Vegas’ Arturo “El Toro” Crespin (11-3-1, 4 KOs) had tough time against Colorado’s Julio Cesar Lanzas (8-19-6, 1 KO). Crespin controlled much of the first four rounds with powerless pitter-patting while Lanzas seemed content with landing one hard shot every now and then. Crespin seemed to tire in the fifth and sixth round, allowing Lanzas to tee off and land some hard overhand rights. By this time, Lanzas was cut over the left eye either by a headbutt or a punch from Crespin. Crespin caught a second wind in the seventh and outgunned Lanzas. Lanzas took the final round of the middleweight contest with effective aggressiveness. After eight rounds the judges gave Crespin a split decision win with scores of 75-77, 79-72 and 78-74.

Fury vs. Haye off again!

By James Slater

It looks like those fight fans who remained interested in seeing Tyson Fury get it on with David Haye will be disappointed on a permanent basis. The heavily hyped British heavyweight showdown, that was postponed from September due to a cut suffered by Haye in some late sparring, has been called off for a second time – this time due to shoulder surgery Haye underwent in Germany this past Thursday.

And now, with some experts telling Haye he must retire from the ring, Team-Fury are searching for a replacement foe for the February 8th date the Haye fight was rescheduled for at The Phones 4U Arena in Manchester (the fight set to go out live on Sky Box Office).

Fury and his promoter Mick Hennessey are understandably fuming.

“I’m absolutely furious but in all honest this is exactly what I expected,” Fury said to The Mail Online. “Everyone knows I was very suspicious when he pulled out the first time and this confirms to me that he’s always been afraid of me and never wanted this fight.” (more…)
