Budler to face Silvestre in Monte Carlo

By Craig Simeon

WBA and IBO minimumweight champion Hekkie “The Hexecutioner” Budler (27-1, 9 KOs) of South Africa will defend against big punching Mexican Jesus Silvestre (30-5, 22 KOs) in the co-main event on February 21 at the Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Budler’s last two contests have been in Monte Carlo so he is no stranger to the place. The main event will see Englishman Martin Murray challenge fearsome WBA, IBO and WBC interim middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin of Kazakhstan. Murray is coming off a technical decision win over Italian Domenico Spada where he looked good in parts. Golovkin, on the other hand, is coming off a crushing knockout victory over Marco Antonio Rubio.

Other contests on that bill include bantamweight Lee Haskins (30-3, 13 KOs) against Omar Lamiri (13-1, 5 KOs) for the vacant European title, and heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury (14-0, 8 KOs) against Andriy Rudenko (24-1, 16 KOs) in his first scheduled ten-rounder.

Norberto Jimenez clamors for rematch

By Robert Coster

Dominican super flyweight contender WBA #5 Norberto Jimenez returned to his native soil, receiving a hero’s welcome after his controversial draw against WBA Champion Kohei Kono in Tokyo on December 31th. A point deducted by referee Rafael Ramos in the sixth round allowed the champion Kono to retain his title via the above-mentioned draw decision. Flanked by his manager Belgica Pena (Shuan Promotions) and his father, the 23-year-old Norberto proudly wrapped himself with the Dominican flag and declared himself ready for an encore battle with the Japanese titlist. “I feel that I am the uncrowned world champion,” declared Jimenez upon his arrival in Santo Domingo. “Kono was the bull but I was the bullfighter. I really gave him fits with my mobility and outboxed him.”

Pena informed that she had in fact, received the assurance of a rematch “within four months” from the WBA supervisor of the fight, in this case Gilberto Mendoza Jr. The colorful Jimenez (20-8-4, 10 KOs) started his career with a 2-8-1 record before turning things around and has now a streak of 21 fights without a loss.

Jr lightweight contender Andrey Klimov (19-1, 9 KOs) of Russia is a prime example that one loss doesn’t necessarily break a boxer’s career. In October of 2013, an unbeaten Klimov squared off with the then-world ranked contender Terrance Crawford (21-0, 16 KOs) on HBO. Both fighters entered the bout unbeaten and coming off of big wins. Crawford had previously dominated Alejandro Sanabria (34-1-1, 25 KOs) of Mexico in route to the sixth round TKO Victory and won his first major regional title (NABO). Klimov had just upset the then heavily favored world ranked John Molina. Crawford would go on to defeat Klimov by unanimous decision. (more…)

Inoue-Narvaez Full Report, Post-fight Quotes and GIANT Photo Gallery

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

Unbeaten sensation Naoya Inoue (8-0, 7 KOs), 115, very impressively and astoundingly captured the WBO super-flyweight belt when he scored a stunningly quick knockout over formidable defending champ Omar Narvaez (43-2-2, 23 KOs), 114.5, at 3:01 of the second round on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. Inoue (pronounced E-No-Woo-Yay) quickly dropped the champ twice in the opening session, and followed up his furious attack to floor Narvaez twice more to see him counted out on the deck. A vicious body shot was a haymaker. It was a fantastic finish that showed Inoue must be a genius as well as “Monster” as nicknamed. Inoue established the new ring record of having acquired the two belts in just eight bouts. Inoue may be going to be an international superstar.

Regardless of some foreign odds that had favored Inoue to win in his ambitious crack, Narvaez logically should have been the prefight favorite thanks to his previous mark of having defended the WBO 112-pound belt sixteen times and the WBO 115-pound throne eleven times to his credit. The underdog Naoya said just after his invaluable victory in the ring, “I had been once obsessed with mental pressure by Narvaez’s superior career, but I was then convinced of my youth and vigor overcoming the difference of career.” His dream and conviction came true as we witnessed with our admiration.

Why did such a confrontation of the formidable 115-pound champ and the up-and-coming but still less experienced youngster (who, however, already had the WBC 108-pound belt in his sixth pro bout) happen? A certain Japanese matchmaker representing Inoue, on September 20, sent an initial offer to Mr. Osvaldo Rivero, a very influential Argentine promoter/manager, for WBA flyweight titlist Juan Carlos Reveco to defend his belt against Inoue on the eve of the last day of the year. Reveco was then scheduled to make a mandatory defense against WBA interim titlist Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep in Argentina in the end of October. (more…)

By Karl Freitag

In a year filled with sensational knockouts, WBA featherweight champion Nicholas Walters distinguished himself with two spectacular KOs that made our year-end list. Walters’ stoppage of Nonito Donaire in October was impressive enough, but his KO over Vic Darchinyan last May in Macao, China, was even more savage. After dropping Darchinyan in round five, the hard-charging Jamaican world champion followed up by blasting “The Raging Bull” into next week with a massive left hook on the chin.

Other “KO of the Year” contenders (and all were terrific) included:

Carl Froch vs. George Groves 2
Alexander Povetkin vs. Carlos Takam
Andy Lee vs. John Jackson
Amir Mansour vs. Frederic Kassi

McCalla ready to shine on FS1

Welterweight Cecil McCalla (20-0, 7 KOs) takes on South African Chris “The Heat” Van Heerden (21-1-1, 11 KOs) January 9th. Adding some spice to the scheduled ten-round bout is that the IBF international welterweight title will be on the line. The bout will be aired on Roc Nations Sports’ debut “Throne Boxing” card from The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City and will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1.

Maryland native McCalla opened some eyes with his stellar performance against late sub Oscar Godoy this past July on ShoBox. McCalla put on a boxing clinic in route to an eight round unanimous decision. Ironically McCalla was supposed to fight Van Heerden that night, but Van Heerden pulled out. Now the two will finally square off once and for all. (more…)

Lennox Lewis calls for Pacquiao-Mayweather, ‘Stop the madness,’ Lewis demands

By James Slater

Ordinary, hard working fight fans are not the only people asking, and asking and asking for superstars Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao to finally get it on and fight in 2015. Retired heavyweight great Lennox Lewis has also had enough of what he himself calls “madness.”

Taking to his massively followed Twitter account, the former undisputed king has listed the fight at the top of his wish-list for boxing in this new year of 2015.

“There’s a few fights I want to see in 2015 but May-Pac is still at top of my list. Stop the madness and make it happen! #EnuffAlready,” Lennox wrote yesterday, adding, “If we could make #Lewis Tyson happen with HBO and Showtime, they can get it together for #MayPac and make history again.” (more…)

Canelo calls on Cotto to sign the contract

Former world champion Canelo Alvarez has called on WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto to sign the contract and face him in the ring on May 2.

“In this personal letter to the media, I Canelo Alvarez ask Miguel Cotto to stop running scared and put his signature to the contract for May 2, because this fight is to revive the great battles between Mexicans and Puerto Ricans.

“I don’t understand what is going on here. I already gave Miguel Cotto many of the things they were asking to do the fight and a month has gone by and he hasn’t decided to sign the contract. I’m young and obviously don’t remember many fights of the past, but from what I know no Puerto Rican ran from a Mexican, nor a Mexican from a Puerto Rican. This is a boxing classic and what the fans want to see.

“I spoke with my promoter Oscar de la Hoya and he confirmed that I’ll fight on May 2, 2015 and Miguel Cotto is the opponent who heads the list. Thank God I have other options, but I think the fans of the world, especially in Puerto Rico, want to see me face a big name like him.”

Alvarez added that if Cotto doesn’t take the fight, he’ll go down in history as one who turned down a return clash with a fighter who defeated own brother.

Few world titles in play during January

By Karl Freitag

After closing out 2014 with a flurry of eight world title fights on the last two days, we now have only three world title fights scheduled for the entire month of January.

Two of those bouts take place on the January 17 Showtime card in Las Vegas when WBC heavyweight titleholder Bermane Stiverne meets Deontay Wilder and WBC super bantamweight rule Leo Santa Cruz faces TBA. The other world title fight is a January 10 IBF light flyweight clash with champion Javier Mendoza making his first defense against challenger Renan Trongco in Tijuana.

There is nada on the agenda for the WBO until February. The WBA has a January 9 “interim” lightweight title clash on ESPN2 between #1 rated Darleys Perez and #6 Jonathan Maicelo, but no “regular” or “super” champions in action.

Fightnews.com “Fighter of the Year” for 2014 is WBO super flyweight champion Naoya Inoue

By Karl Freitag
Photo: Naoki Fukuda

21-year-old Japanese phenom Naoya “Monster” Inoue (8-0, 7 KOs) is the Fightnews.com “Fighter of the Year” for 2014. Inoue went 3-0 in 2014, winning all three by KO, all three were world title bouts. He capped off the year with an all out destruction of long reigning WBO super flyweight champ Omar Narvaez on December 30.

In April, Inoue scored a sixth round KO over Adrian “Confesor” Hernandez to claim the WBC light flyweight belt in Tokyo. He defended that title in September with an eleventh round stoppage of Samartlek Kokietgym.

Inoue then relinquished the 108lb belt and ambitiously moved up two weight divisions to take on Narvaez who was making his 12th defense of the 115lb belt after previously defending the flyweight title 16 times. Inoue demolished Narvaez, putting the Argentine legend on the deck four times. A lethal body shot ended the fight in round two. Winning two world titles in separate divisions after just eight fights was the fastest the feat has ever been accomplished.

Inoue’s heroics put him at the head of a pack that included WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev, WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto, WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford, WBA featherweight champion Nicholas Walters and WBC flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez.
