Velasquez, the champion

UFC ON FOX is LIVE Nov. 12!

When Cain Velasquez hit the deck courtesy of Cheick Kongo’s fists at UFC 99 in June of 2009, the sound in the Lanxess Arena was a cross between the usual roar that accompanies a knockdown and impending finish in a heavyweight prizefight, and a gasp from those MMA aficionados who were aware of what was happening . . .

Bradley-Casamayor erupts

Tensions Reach A Boiling Point

By Andreas Hale

While things have been relatively civil between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez leading up to their November 12th showdown, emotions bubbled to a boiling point between Timothy Bradley and Joel Casamayor, who will face off as the co-featured attraction on Saturday night.

It all seemed to be like the routine press conference where everyone basically exchanges pleasantries, tries to prove to the media that this time they are in the best physical condition of their lives, thank God and go home. While the 40-year-old Casamayor appeared to be relatively calm as he kept it short and sweet at the podium (“I feel great. Everyone knows what I bring to the ring.”), something that Timothy Bradley said drew the ire of the former lightweight and super featherweight champion. Or maybe the sharp tongued Cuban simply felt like spicing up the mundane press conference practices. (more…)

Freddie Roach issues warning

"If Manny puts him down...I don't think he'll get up."

By Andreas Hale

Photo: Chris Farina/Top Rank

Fight fans would like to believe that the third meeting between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Marquez should be filled with fireworks and wall to wall action. But if you ask Freddie Roach, he could care less about pints of blood being spilled for twelve rounds. What Roach wants is for his fighter to obliterate Juan Manuel Marquez and leave him lying on the canvas in a heap. That would be the perfect exclamation point in a trilogy that has been loaded with questions.

“I believe all fights should end in a knockout,” Roach said to a group of boxing scribes on Thursday. “Manny is a compassionate guy and he let the last two guys (Mosley and Margarito) off the hook. I urge him not to be compassionate in fights because one punch can change a fight.” (more…)

Pajkic and Fury: Final words

By Dave Spencer

This Saturday November 12th two undefeated 16-0 heavyweights collide as British Champion Tyson Fury meets Canadian Champion Neven Pajkic in Manchester England for Fury’s British Commonwealth belt. Tensions for the fight have been brewing for over a year ever since Fury touched down onto Canadian soil and challenged Pajkic as he was putting the finishing touches of a Canadian title defence just north of Toronto. The prestigious Commonwealth belt that is up for grabs dates back well over 100 years and has been worn by the likes of Lennox Lewis, Trevor Berbick, Tommy Burns, Henry Cooper and Danny Williams. Both fighters hope it will help propel them to bigger and better things and had a chance to address the media one more final time earlier this week, leaving fight fans hoping that the what happens inside the ropes will be half as good as the war of words that’s been going on outside.

Solomon title shot imploding

By Boxing Bob Newman

It looks like the meteoric rise of current WBA #1 ranked welterweight Brad Solomon has come to a screeching halt. Not only that, but with the negotiations for his mandated title shot against WBA champ Vyacheslav Senchenko all but dead in the water and Solomon’s career looks to be headed nowhere fast. Matchmaker Ricardo Rizzo of Heavyweight Factory (Solomon’s promoter of record), told Fightnews exclusively this morning that “Someone has gotten in Solomon’s ear. He doesn’t want the fight (with Senchenko). He’s not answering anyone’s calls. We got him to #1 in the world and a mandatory title shot with only a 17-0 (7 KOs) record. We had him fight at the convention last year. We had him in the K.O. Drugs card in Panama. We got him on ESPN so people could see him. He’s a good fighter, but a bad person. We’re going to find out who is talking to him and we’re going to sue for interference. They (Heavyweight Factory) have put a lot of money behind this kid. He’s driving a Mercedes. Does he think it’s going to be better somewhere else? Because he was going to fight or the WBA title, the WBO removed him from their rankings, the WBC removed him, (Solomon isn’t actually in the current WBC top 15 anyway), Berto gave up the IBF belt so Randall Bailey will fight someone for that title. Where does he think he’s gonna go?” (more…)

Crolla aims to derail Limond

British Lightweight Champion Anthony Crolla says that he will scupper Willie Limond’s plans of a history-making all-Scottish world title showdown against Ricky Burns. Limond said this week that he would beat Crolla and get a shot at the new Interim WBO World Lightweight Champion who beat Michael Katsidis last week at Wembley Arena. Manchester star “Million Dollar” Crolla defends his title against Limond on November 25th at the Ravenscraig Sports Centre in Motherwell, Scotland, and reckons he will be the one facing Burns.

Alexander vows to KO Roy Jones

Max Alexander understands his current place in the boxing world. Inactive for two years and without a win in his past six fights, few if any give him any chance at all of coming out on top in his December 10 showdown with the legendary Roy Jones Jr. at the Atlanta Civic Center. For that very reason, Alexander didn’t hesitate to accept this assignment, one the cruiserweight views as the opportunity of a lifetime when he squares off against the 12-time world champion in four weight classes who is destined for the Boxing Hall of Fame.

Not only is the Camden (NJ)-based fighter confident of victory, he goes as far as to guarantee when the fight will end and literally willing to put his money where his mouth is. “I have been working hard, training hard, and I will knock out Roy Jones, Jr. by the 6th round,” says Alexander (14-5-2, 2KO), who participated in Season Three of the boxing reality show ‘The Contender.’ “If I don’t KO him by 6th Rd I will forfeit my purse. Roy doesn’t stand a chance against me. I am 6’2” with a 76” reach and I have a right hand that will put Roy to sleep.”

NY Post: Another Oscar scandal?

25-year-old former Playboy model Angelica Marie Cecora has filed a lawsuit against ring legend and promoter Oscar de la Hoya alleging emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and battery during a drug-fueled sex party that took place several months before Oscar went into rehab. “It was beyond kinky,” Cecora, told The New York Post. She alleges that the Golden Boy went cavorting around in women’s underwear, went crazy with cocaine and sex toys and intimidated her and a roommate when they tried to leave. “Things that I don’t even know how to explain were done with him,” she told the tabloid.

Heavyweights collide in Las Vegas Dec. 30!

This Saturday night is a huge night for fight fans, maybe the best night of fighting in 2012. In boxing, Manny Pacquiao faces Juan Manuel Marquez in Las Vegas on Pay-Per-View and – before the boxing even gets started – the UFC has an historic fight live and free on FOX.

Modern mixed martial arts may be a young sport, but this fight from Honda Center in Anaheim, CA is a real throwback to the days of Dempsey or Ali or Tyson. (more…)
