Boxing back in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Boxing is back in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Saturday, March 28th at the Belle of Baton Rouge.

In the co-feature, Baton Rouge native Chris Singleton (14-1, 7 KOs) faces Fort Worth’s Jose Hernandez (14-9-1, 6 KOs) in a six round lightweight bout.

“Every boxing event we’ve had at the Belle has sold out,” said promoter Matt McGovern. “We’re going to see a lot of great fighters coming out of Baton Rouge in the years to come. The kids fighting in the amateurs see the professional fighters on the big stage, and they want to stay in the gym and work hard to get there as well.”

American boxing manager Joseph Horn is now guiding the career of former Australian super lightweight champion Solomon Egberime (23-4-1, 11 KOs) who defeated Gerardo Cuevas (17-13, 15 KOs) over ten rounds at Fort McDowell, Arizona, last Friday.

“I signed Solomon to a management contract and brought him to train with world renowned trainer Luis Tapia,” Horn said. “In 10 weeks we had Sol in top form and ring ready for his battle with rugged Gerardo Cuevas, known for his knockout power. The goal has always been to bring Solomon to the USA and expose some of the 140-147 lb fighters who hold themselves out as a top contenders. It is our plan to know match Stylin’ Sol with these fighters and work our way into title contention shortly.” (more…)

Pacquiao, Mayweather camps trade barbs over drug testing penalty

The camp of Manny Pacquiao is miffed that Floyd Mayweather pushed for stringent drug testing, but wouldn’t agree to a $5 million penalty if either side tests dirty. “I’m a little puzzled and a little dismayed that they wouldn’t agree to something this simple,” Pacquiao advisor Michael Koncz told the Los Angeles Times.

Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe responded that the drug testing conditions were “rigorously negotiated for weeks” and “if you’re supposed to be the manager, you need to read the language in the contract before you let your fighter sign. That’s why, in my opinion, Michael Koncz is the biggest idiot in all of boxing.”

Stevenson-Bika undercard preview

After dominating the amateur ranks during two entire Olympic cycles, Russian prospect Artur Beterbiev is now ready for pro boxing’s elite, even though he has only fought seven times as a professional. The Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) jewel will continue his journey April 4 in Quebec City, airing live on CBS and TVA Sports, against former world champion Gabriel Campillo, of Spain. “The journalists won’t be happy since I did not KO anybody today,” laughed Beterbiev after a public training session today in Quebec City. He demonstrated his skills with his sparring partners, Englishman Bob Ajisafe and Australian Blake Caparello.

“I really think it will be a short night for Campillo,” Caparello said after sparring Beterbiev. “This guy has some incredible brute force. He could even chase and hunt down a strong Sergey Kovalev in the ring.”

Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOa) will face former WBA light heavyweight world champion Campillo (25-6-1, 11 KOa), a slick 6’2 southpaw who has fought 211 rounds as a professional, in a preliminary bout before the WBC light heavyweight world title fight between defending champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson and Sakio Bika.

Linares-Mitchell, Gradovich-Selby, Joshua-Kingpin collide on May 30 in London

Big fight card on tap for May 30 at the O2 Arena in London. WBC lightweight champion Jorge Linares will defend his title against Kevin Mitchell, IBF featherweight champion Evgeny Gradovich defends his title against Lee Selby, and unbeaten heavyweight sensation Anthony Joshua faces Kevin ‘Kingpin’ Johnson in their rescheduled encounter. Olympic gold medal hero Joshua also has a fight scheduled in Newcastle on April 4 ahead of the May 30 clash.

“This is a huge night for British boxing and today’s announcement is just the beginning,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “I’m delighted to deliver shots for Kevin and Lee in the UK and they have every chance of becoming world champions on May 30. Linares is an incredible fighter, a three-weight world ruler, but Kevin has been exceptional with us and I truly believe he is going to do it. Lee has been virtually punch-perfect over the last few years but now it’s his moment against one of the best fighters in the division in Gradovich. Kevin is a big step for Anthony Joshua and signifies his first real challenge in the pro ranks, he brings personality and attitude as well as plenty of ring craft – I’m buzzing for this show already and fans can expect plenty of other major announcements for the card.”

For a fighter as popular and well liked as Alfonso Gomez (24-6-2, 12 KOs) there certainly was an easier road to a world title fight. But if there is anything we have learned about Gomez after an exciting career that has thus far spanned nearly fourteen years it is this: he has never shied away from a challenge. Gomez is looking to position himself for one more title fight in 2015, and he is not afraid to get his hands dirty on the way to the top as he takes on hard punching Japanese contender Yoshihiro Kamegai (25-2-1, 22 KOs) tomorrow at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.

HASEGAWA TO MAKE A RISKY COMEBACK

Former WBC bantam and feather champ Hozumi Hasegawa (33-5, 15 KOs), 34, will make a comeback against strong criticisms and face unbeaten Mexican, WBC#9 super-bantam Horacio Garcia (29-0, 21 KOs), ten years his junior, in Kobe, Japan, on May 9. It was announced by Shinsei Promotions presided by Masato Yamashita. Asked why he dares to meet such a dangerous youngster, Hasegawa replied, “I don’t like to fight an easy opponent but a strong foe that will test my current power, which will certainly motivate me to work hard.” Having been demolished by Kiko Martinez in quest of the IBF 122-pound belt at stake in April of the previous year, Hasegawa, after a one-year hiatus, will risk his fistic future against the up-and-coming Mexican handled by Canelo Promotions. Good luck, ex-champ. (more…)

Here are quotes from Wednesday’s final press conference ahead of Saturday night’s all-German WBA world light heavyweight championship clash between champion Juergen Braehmer (45-2, 33 KOs) and #1 challenger Robin Krasniqi (43-3, 16 KOs) at the StadtHalle in Rostock, Germany.

Juergen Braehmer: Krasniqi is a young ambitious fighter who wants to take my title away from me. But that’s not going to happen. As always, I will defeat my opponent and retain my title.”

[On the possibility of an early KO] “Sometimes a single punch is all it takes. Whether this comes in the first round or twelfth round, it’s impossible to predict at this level. But when the opportunity does come, I will take it!”

Robin Krasniqi: “This is the most important fight of my life! A win on Saturday would change everything and I can write sports history. I would be the first professional boxing world champion from Munich and Bavaria and also in the countries where I come from, Kosovo and Albania.

[On his unsuccessful attempt at the WBO belt in 2013] “That opportunity may have come to soon for me. But now, I’m ready for the perfect match!” (more…)

Chavez Jr: After this fight I’m going down to 168

By Karl Freitag

“I think after this fight I’m going down to 168 and stay at that weight for one or two years rather than move to 175 right now,” former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. told reporters yesterday. “I don’t think my body is 175. Now my body is 168, but after one year off that’s why we’re fighting at 172.”

Junior said he’s going to make 172 for sure because otherwise he’d have to pay $100,000 per pound if he’s heavy. “I’ve never been more than 172 in a fight. The only fight at 172 was with Bryan Vera the first fight. In all my career, in all my championship bouts I never missed 160, and I don’t know why I’d miss 172. I never missed making weight in 12 years. I don’t have a problem. If he doesn’t make the weight, maybe we’ll have $100,000.”

Fanfara said he expects to make the weight also.

“I’m a light heavyweight fighter,” said Fonfara. “Because I’m fighting with Chavez, that’s why we have that catch weight, that’s why I go down….it’s not tough for me to go two or three pounds down. When I fought Stevenson last year I was 173.”

Chavez and Fonfara collide on April 18 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, live on Showtime.
