2015 IBF Convention headed to Montreal

The IBF/USBA 32nd Annual Convention will take place in Montreal, Canada at Le Centre Sheraton from May 17-21, 2015. During the last convention in Atlantic City there was a great deal of discussion regarding the convention potentially taking place in Wonju, Korea. “Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we could not make this a reality for 2015. However, Asia is a region of great interest to us and we hope to host our convention in 2016 either in Korea or another country in the region,” noted IBF/USBA President Daryl Peoples. The organization is optimistic that their convention in Montreal will be as successful as those that have taken place in the past few years.

The ABC (Association of Boxing Commissions) certification for judges and referees will be offered during this convention. “During our convention in Hawaii in 2012 we offered the ABC certification for judges and the opportunity was well received by our members,” added Peoples. The judges seminar will be presented by Duane Ford and the referees seminar will be presented by Mark Nelson.

Former unified super lightweight world champion Amir “King” Khan (29-3, 19 KOs) and former two-division world champion Devon Alexander “The Great” (26-2, 14 KOs) met Tuesday afternoon at The Conga Room at LA Live to announce their December 13 showdown on Showtime Championship Boxing at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Respected trainers Virgil Hunter and Kevin Cunningham spoke about their fighters at Tuesday’s press conference.

Promoter: Rubio was a disgrace

By Gabriel F Cordero

Mexican boxing company Promociones del Pueblo has parted ways with former WBC interim middleweight world champion Marco Antonio “El Veneno” Rubio after he failed to make weight and then was quickly KO’d by WBA middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin. “Mexicans and world boxing fans expected a lot more from Rubio but that fight was a great shame,” said Promociones del Pueblo president Reginaldo Kuchle. “Rubio was a disgrace. An inexplicable loss. He was knocked out in just two easy rounds with a punch that wasn’t even strong. Rubio let down the fans. We even fought for him in the courts, and came out with this.”

Hopkins, Kovalev workout quotes & photos

IBF and WBA light heavyweight world champion Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins and WBO light heavyweight world champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev hosted a Brooklyn media workout at the famed Gleason’s Gym before their unification showdown on Saturday at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City live on HBO World Championship Boxing.

Bernard Hopkins: “There are so many things I’ve done that the world of boxing has witnessed. It’s going to be difficult for the boxing people to pick one of my performances as the best. I’ve done so many unpredictable things and so profoundly. Even the people who want to go against me, are afraid to go against me. They’ve been wrong so many times. A lot of them are just being mum right now. They must feel I can still do things. This is a great position to be in. I don’t really believe there is any fighter, in any decade that can be in my position of luxury that I’ve been in for many years. (more…)

Glen Johnson: I want become world champion again

45-year-old former world champion Glen Johnson (54-19-2, 37 KOs) will face unbeaten Erik Skoglund (21-0, 11 KOs) on December 13 at the Albertslund MusikTeatret in Copenhagen, Denmark. Skogland is rated IBF #3 and WBO #4 at light heavyweight. Johnson is returning to light heavyweight after a TKO9 loss to cruiserweight Ilunga Makabu in June.

“Skoglund is good boxer with a lot of potential,” said Johnson. “But I think my experience will play a big part in this fight. I know what I have to do and on December 13, I’m going to get in there and get the job done. There is still a lot more I want to achieve. I want become world champion again. I wouldn’t still be boxing if I didn’t think I could do it. By beating a young, up and coming fighter like Skoglund, I will put myself right back in the mix.”

Eric Hunter gets fresh start under Golden Boy Banner

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Everyone in Philadelphia knows that Eric “Outlaw” Hunter is one of the most talented fighters in the City. He was an outstanding amateur, an Olympic alternate, and has compiled a professional record of 18-3, with 9 KOs. In his last fight, he won the USBA featherweight title with a gritty but comfortable 10-round decision over Yenifel Vicente.

But despite all this success, Philly fans don’t know if Hunter will ever make it to the elite level. The enigmatic Outlaw has wasted a lot of time, failed to capitalize on big victories, stumbled through the political game, and most of all had trouble keeping his attitude in check. Still, his fans truly believe a world championship could be in his future if the troubled fighter can pull it all together before it’s too late.

On Saturday night, Hunter has a chance to make a fresh start on the undercard of the Bernard Hopkins vs. Sergey Kovalev fight, at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, with a brand new promoter behind him and a seasoned opponent, Nicaraguan southpaw William Gonzalez, 27-5, 23 KOs, across the ring. If Hunter can perform up to his talents, he might just be ready to make his move. (more…)

Briggs headed to Germany

The last U.S. heavyweight champion of the world Shannon Briggs (57-6-1, 50 KOs) fresh off of his 50th career KO this past Saturday is now headed to Germany. No doubt Briggs is planning to be at ringside for the November 15th clash between unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and his mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev. Now world ranked, Briggs’ current comeback has garnered plenty of media attention and fan support for his sought after showdown with Klitschko. He has also has plenty of detractors who question the level of his competition during his comeback.

Briggs responded with the following:

“I would like to thank all the fans who have been supportive during my campaign to land this fight with Wlad. I would like to thank the haters as well as it gives me a lot of motivation during training. I guess some of them forget that when I got the offer to fight Ruslan Chagaev for the then vacant WBA title this past June, I said ‘yes’ immediately and was waiting on a contract. Keep in mind I had just fought and went 12 rounds less than week before they offered me the fight. It’s not my fault that the original opponent ended up taking the fight in the end.

“When I got the offer to fight Tyson Fury to replace Derek Chisora this past July on short notice I knew that multiple people were being offered the fight and as you saw the fight never even happened. (more…)

Sadam Ali: The time is mine

By Matt Richardson
Photos by Peter Frutkoff

Sadam Ali has been toiling on the sidelines for what seems like a long time. A 2008 U.S. Olympian, the unbeaten welterweight from Brooklyn seemingly should have already had a title belt around his waist by now (or at least received his shot). Still, at 26 years of age, time is on his side. With a little luck and some good matchmaking, the 147-pounder could potentially move to the next level.

The first step in that progression will commence this Saturday at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey when Ali takes on the hard-hitting Argentinean warrior Luis Carlos Abregu in the HBO televised co-feature to the Bernard Hopkins-Sergey Kovalev main event.

For Ali (20-0, 12 KOs), now is the time to make it count. (more…)

Saunders: Eubank Jr. was exposed in front of the media today … he needs to man up

Billy Joe Saunders has slammed Chris Eubank Jr. for failing to show up to yet another head-to-head press conference today to promote their Saturday 29th November showdown at the ExCeL London. Saunders, who had travelled from his training camp in Spain with trainer Jimmy Tibbs, was stood up for the third time in a row by Eubank, who was replaced on the top table with a cardboard cutout. Chris Eubank Sr’s reason for not letting his son not attend the press conference was because he claimed the security provided by promoter Frank Warren was not adequate for the safety of his son, following comments that Saunders would “slap” Eubank Jr.

Warren had provided four approved SIA badged security personnel and also allowed Eubank Sr. to bring three of his own personal security guards at the press conference to protect Eubank Jr. And in addition, Warren also offered to install a barrier to divide the top table and keep the rival middleweights separated. Despite these measures plus a letter from Robert Smith, General Secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control, saying that he was satisfied with the security arrangements and advising Eubank Jr to fulfill his contractual obligations and attend the press conference, Eubank Sr. still maintained that his son’s safety would be in danger and would not attend.

Bernard Hopkins set to do it his way – again

Story & Photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

It’s fight week, and Bernard Hopkins has been here 65 times before. However, Saturday night’s world light heavyweight championship showdown with Sergey Kovalev, the hardest punching 175-pounder on the scene today, is perhaps his most anticipated fight in ten years. Not since Hopkins, 55-6-2, 2 NC, 32 KOs, faced Oscar De La Hoya in 2004, has the boxing world been so geared up for a fight involving Bernard Hopkins.

“This fight has a lot of politics and a lot of historic things wrapped up around it that I really haven’t had in any fight in a long time,” Hopkins said.

On Saturday night, Hopkins and Kovalev, 25-0-1, 23 KOs, will face off at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall in an HBO 12-rounder to merge the WBA, IBF and WBO titles. But this fight is about much more than championship belts. This is a match between the two best fighters in the light heavyweight division, and one that very well could pass the torch from one generation to the next. (more…)

Chris Eubank Jr a no-show at press conference for clash with Billy Joe Saunders

By James Slater

At today’s press conference at The ExCel Arena in London to further promote the upcoming November 29th clash between defending European middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders and challenger Chris Eubank Jr, the latter was, to the real surprise of nobody, a no-show. Eubank Jr has done this before – and even though reports say Eubank Sr advised his son to stay away from today’s press conference because he was concerned things could boil over and get nasty, maybe even physical – promoter Frank Warren is understandably furious.

“I can’t tell you how angry this makes me feel,” Warren stated today. “He’s [Eubank] doing boxing a great disservice.”

As for the ultra-confident Saunders, who flew in from his training camp in Marbella to attend the press conference, he had the following things to say:

“It’s no skin off my nose, but I feel sorry for you [the media in attendance]. I flew back from Spain, so I’m sure he can come 15 or 20 minutes in the car. I’ve got four weeks to wait and [then] I can punch his head in. I speak what’s on my mind. I knew he wouldn’t show up. All this is mind games. Before I move on to world honors, I want to beat him.” (more…)
