Garza aims to turn things around at UFC 154

It was the best of times then it was the worst of times for UFC featherweight Pablo Garza. In essence, it truly has been a tale of two very different years for the highly touted prospect. At 2-2 inside the Octagon, “The Scarecrow” first saw glory in back-to-back flying first round finishes that earned a Knockout of the Night bonus and then a Submission of the Night bonus. Following that, Garza was D’Arce choked by Dustin Poirier at UFC on FOX, and then was on the receiving end of a takedown clinic by Dennis Bermudez in May. . .

After being stripped by the WBA for taking the Anthony Mundine fight, Australian middleweight champion, Daniel “Real Deal” Geale (28-1, 25 KOs) reflects on the decision made by the sanctioning organization. “Whilst I enjoyed unifying titles and being crowned the WBA super champion it has become ultimately clear to me that it is impossible to keep all the belts,” said Daniel Geale. “I am aware of my mandatory obligations, however I felt that the challenge from Anthony Mundine was an opportunity to settle the score once and for all, and I want to thank the IBF for granting me the exception that creates a fight which will please all Australian boxing fans. As I proudly remain the IBF World champion, I wish the WBA and whoever they crown the same short lived pleasure as I will be coming to reclaim what is rightfully mine.”

DiBella Entertainment will host special-edition fundraising Broadway Boxing card for Hurricane Sandy victims

On Monday, Hurricane Sandy ripped across the Northeast, leaving much of the area a disaster zone, especially parts of New York and New Jersey. Lives were lost, homes were ruined, and millions of people were left devastated. Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment, who lives on Long Island where the storm struck extremely hard, was one of the more fortunate ones, as he and his family were able to remain safe, while only suffering damages to their homes. A lifelong New Yorker who has been promoting shows throughout the tri-state area for over a decade, DiBella realizes the importance of banding together in such harsh times as these.

“Where our staff has been greatly inconvenienced and our offices and homes have been left without power, hot water and cell phone service, we suffered no injuries to family, our properties are largely intact and we will be back on our feet shortly,” said DiBella. “The tri-state area is the home of DBE and our Broadway Boxing series. So many of our friends, fans and viewers have suffered far greater damage than we have. Breezy Point, the Rockaways and much of the Jersey Shore will never be the same and people are enduring unbearable suffering in those areas and many others. Broadway Boxing will return before the end of the year and the final card of 2012 will be a fundraising effort for those most harmed by Hurricane Sandy. We will work with possible television outlets and venues and an announcement will be forthcoming shortly.”

Potential Klitschko fight overshadows Huck-Arslan

The cruiserweight title Fight between current WBO champion Marco Huck and challenger Firat Arslan in Halle/Westphalia, Germany, is just days away, but it’s the name of WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko that is currently the main topic of conversation.

“Bernd Boente, Klitschko’s manager, has been talking to Marco directly about the possibility of fighting Klitschko. Now we have used the official channels to approach them with an offer,” said promoter Kalle Sauerland, who claims the Klitschko camp turned down a $5 million offer within 20 minutes. “Of course, we are now excepting them to come up with a counter offer. We are always willing to hold personal talks to discuss the terms for such a fight. Then we will see if they will actually put their money where their mouth is. We definitely want to make this fight happen.”

Huck, meanwhile, is doing his best David Haye impression, trying to provoke Wladimir into the ring with insults, referring to Wlad as his “girlfriend” and saying “Vitali is a man who fought real fights, while Wladimir lost pitifully and never asked for a rematch.”

That is, to show no respect to Pongsaklek’s power,” said Migreno. “The guy is not the same as he was. I knew he can’t knock me out and it was obvious when Sonny Boy Jaro knocked him out that he had the skills but his body couldn’t execute them anymore. They thought I would be an easy fight because of my record. But I’m sorry, I am more than what my record says. I am very happy right now.

Usmanee-Barthelemy ready to collide

By Dave Spencer

Look for 2013 to start off with a bang as Canadian super-featherweight Arash Usmanee (20-0 10KO) travels to Miami Florida to meet Rances Barthelemy (17-0 11KO) in a battle of undefeated fighters at the Magic City Casino and televised on ESPN. “The contract is signed and the fight approved by ESPN,” a happy Douggy Berneche, manager for Usmanee told FightNews Thursday evening.

The fight fulfills the two criteria that Berneche has been searching for his talented fighter, televised exposure and a name opponent who should have people standing up and taking notice should the #8 (WBA) Usmanee prevail. The 5’11” Barthelemy is ranked #5 by the IBF and was actually in Canada one year ago when promoter Leon Margules brought him in to be part of the Glen Johnson versus Lucian Bute undercard, stopping Alejandro Barrera that night, a common opponent for both fighters. “He’s a good prospect but I don’t think he’s ever been tested,” said Berneche.

“People just keep calling me Drago, but Drago already exists,” Grachev told the Montreal media as he and Bute went face to face for the first time.

Q&A: IBO featherweight champion Daud Yordan

By Boxing Bob Newman

Chris John Is without a doubt, Indonesia’s superstar in boxing. Undefeated in 49 fights (47-0-2) and looking to make it 50 next week in Singapore as he defends against 44-0 Thai Chonlatarn Piriyapino, it would seem John is without peers in Asia, and arguably in boxing.

Indonesia’s “other” world champ would beg to differ. Daud “Cino” Yordan locked horns with his compatriot once, in April 2011, losing the Indonesian civil war via a competitive, unanimous decision 116-112 twice and 117-111. Exactly one year before, April 17, 2010, Daud was practically shut out, winning only one round on two of the judges cards in Sunrise, Florida, One year before that, Daud was looking fast and furious in a fight with current WBC interim welterweight champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero in San Jose, CA when a clash of heads caused a cut over Guerrero’s right eye, resulting in a second round No Contest. Daud has since bounced back, winning the vacant IBO featherweight Asia Pacific title via TKO4 over Frankie Archuleta and a knockdown trading war over Lorenzo Villanueva for the vacant IBO featherweight title via KO2.

Next week, on the John-Piriyapino undercard, Yordan looks to raise his status against rugged Mongolian Choi Tseveenpurev 36-5 (24), who fights out of Manchester, England. Yordan, nicknamed “Cino” because of his “Chinese” looks, took time to talk to Fightnews.com while on a break from training in Jakarta before leaving for Singapore… (more…)

Bute has something to prove

Despite a 30-1 record with 24 KOs and 10 world title defenses, the Canadian Press isn’t going easy on former IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute after suffering his first loss in May against Carl Froch. “Suspect chin,” and “tattered reputation” are a few of the expressions used to describe Bute in an article published today by CP. Regardless of harsh criticisms, Bute remains one of the best and most exciting super middleweights in the fight game today. And to his credit, Bute didn’t choose an easy touch for his comeback fight in unbeaten Denis Grachev, who knocked out previously unbeaten #2 rated light heavyweight Ismayl Sillakh in his previous fight.

The November 3rd Bute-Grachev event is available live at WealthTV.com. WealthTV is available on Verizon FiOS TV (channels 169 and 669 in HD), AT&T U-Verse TV (channels 470 and 1470 in HD), along with over 100 cable systems across the country. Click here for more information.
