Zhong defeats Martinez; makes history

Becomes first world boxing champion from China

Xiong Zhao Zhong (20-4-1, 11 KOs) of China Unanimously decisioned Javier Martinez Resendiz (13-4-2, 6 KOs) of Mexico to win the vacant WBC minimumweight world title. The bout was fought at a very fast pace and very close throughout the first half of the fight. The second half of the fight Zhong turned it on and really was teeing off on Martinez at times and seemed to be in the brink of at least putting him down. Zhong also opened up a cut over the eye of Martinez. Martinez was game until the end and neither fighter was down in the bout. 116-114 116-112, and 119-110 were the official scores. Zhong became China’s first world champion boxer. The bout took place at the Kunming City Stadium in Kunming, China.

Earlier, in a much tougher fight than expected, former world heavyweight title challenger Okello Peter (21-6, 19 KOs) out of Japan by way of Uganda defeated Washington State resident Freddie Miller (3-7-1, 2 KOs) by way of TKO in round four. Both men were down in round three. Peter had Miller hurt badly against the ropes in the fourth round when the referee stepped in and waved the bout off.

Price out to topple Skelton

Price-Skelton event is LIVE on November 30 on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com.

Heavyweight David Price reckons has Portugal training camp has got him in the mood to hammer Matt Skelton. The undefeated Liverpool boxer makes the second defense of his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles against Skelton at Aintree Equestrian Centre on November 30th on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com.

Since beating Audley Harrison in 82 seconds last month, Price has been preparing at promoter Frank Maloney’s training camp in the Algarve. Price, 29, said: “I went to Portugal because the fight was so soon after the Audley Harrison bout. I needed a change of scenery because I was going straight back into camp. It has been refreshing and exactly what I needed. I have had some good sparring with Danny Price and John McDermott. I am more or less there and ready to do a number on Skelton. I only had a week off after the last fight so it was a case of maintaining what I had already done in the gym in the weeks previously.” (more…)

Guerrero not Satisfied with Belts; wants Stardom!

By David Robinett

This Saturday WBC interim welterweight champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero faces the toughest assignment of his career as he squares off against former welterweight titlist Andre Berto (28-1, 22 KOs) at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. Guerrero (30-1-1, 18KOs) is fighting at welterweight for just the second time following his successful outing back in July against former WBC Silver welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin.

Guerrero continues to step up his level of competition in hopes of landing a career-defining fight against WBC champ Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“The reason for moving to 147 was to get the big fights,” Guerrero explained to FightNews. “Being the smaller guy we were hoping people would see that and want to take the fight. Besides, at 135 and 140 nobody wanted to fight so why waste my time?” (more…)

Senchenko ducks Hatton press conference

Former world champion Ricky Hatton had the press all to himself on Thursday as opponent and fellow former champion Vyacheslav Senchenko was a no-show at the final press conference at Manchester Town Hall. Hatton Promotions Director of Boxing Richard Poxon explained that Senchenko didn’t attend because he didn’t want to do the face-off with Ricky. Hatton quipped “the main thing is I’m here.” Addressing concerns that he would never be the same after his KO loss to Manny Pacquiao three years ago, Hatton stated “I won’t come back the same. I’m going to come back better Saturday night, you watch!” Hatton-Senchenko takes place Saturday night at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England.

Giovanni Caro: “I don’t want to say any more. Fernando Montiel has been a great champion and I come with everything to gain and will demonstrate conclusively that I am worthy of returning to being a world title contender … first things first, and I will have to earn that opportunity and impose my will on a great boxing figure.”

Hatton: Ready to fight and live

By Robert Hough

If Ricky Hatton lands punches as often and as intensely as he speaks of being a proud man, he’ll shred everyone at welterweight or close. Hatton (45-2, 32 KOs), who spoke recently with searing candor about horrific times after a second-round knockout loss to Manny Pacquiao in May 2009, returns to the ring Saturday against Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. The 10-round welterweight fight will be broadcast on Showtime.

“I’m a very proud fighter,” said Hatton. I’m a very, very proud man. Getting beaten that way by Manny Pacquiao, it was very, very hard to take.”

Hatton’s life turned to “mush,” he said, and ugliness was clear by November 2010, when he went to Manchester Arena to watch David Haye fight Audley Harrison.

“David Haye walks out and the crowd started roaring. I sat at ringside crying,” said Hatton, who had thrilled crowds in his hometown arena on many a night. “I’m thinking, ‘This used to be me. This should be me,’ but because I was in such a bad state and so depressed, I was making a fool of myself.” (more…)
