On August 11, Goossen Tutor Promotions returns to the San Fernando Valley’s legendary Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City, CA, with a main event featuring 2008 U.S. Olympian Shawn Estrada (14-0, 12 KOs) squaring off with undefeated Felix Piedra (8-0-1, 5 KOs) in a scheduled 8-round light heavyweight contest.

“We’re expecting another exciting night of boxing at ‘The Lodge’ on August 11,” promoter Dan Goossen said. “Shawn Estrada is a big puncher and once the bell rings he’s looking to land one bomb after another. Mention the name Leon Spinks, III, and it makes you want to see if he inherited the Spinks champion bloodlines. Heavyweights also have a way of getting fans excited, and it’s the same for me, with the debut of Pogosyan, along with Jessie Villanueva taking another step in his development.”
Golden Boy Promotions has confirmed that their September 15 card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will feature undefeated WBC super welterweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez against Josesito Lopez.

Remaining bouts will be announced. “We know the exceptional talent we have in Mexican superstar Canelo, and certainly Josesito Lopez deserves the opportunity to face him after his stunning upset victory over Victor Ortiz on June 23,” said Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions.
Canelo Alvarez: I am happy to be fighting Josesito Lopez on Mexican Independence Day weekend and to give all of our fans a tremendous battle. I was ringside for his fight against Victor Ortiz and saw the talent he possesses. It will be very competitive, but nothing can take away my desire to be the best in the sport.
Josesito Lopez: I know they put me in the ring with Victor Ortiz to have me beat and now they are doing the same thing with Canelo. I was a big underdog with Ortiz and now I’m a bigger underdog with Canelo, but I’m up for the challenge.

The World Championships Committee of the World Boxing Association officially announced today its decision to reinstate Amir Khan as “super champion” who may be able to unify titles with WBC champion Danny Garcia on Saturday. This decision was taken after the positive doping result of the American Lamont Peterson was confirmed by the medical experts. The WBA rules state that no boxer who has tested positively for prohibited substances can be rated, retain a title, or be permitted to fight in a sanctioned bout for a period of no less than six (6) months from the date of the positive test has been enforced. Given the circumstances, Peterson’s status is champion in recess and it is subject to revision.

WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (10-0, 8 KOs), upon learning that Nonito Donaire plans to move up to the featherweight division after his next fight, has labeled Donaire as a phony. “Donaire is running scared of any super bantamweights with power,” Rigondeaux said from his Miami training camp. “He hasn’t knocked out anybody at 122 pounds. One thing is for sure, though, he will get knocked out if he has the guts to fight me.”
Rigondeaux, who trained at Wild Card Gym with Manny Pacquiao, continued “Manny fought the best fighters around when he was moving up through weight classes but this phony, Donaire, is disappointing fans all over the world, especially Filipino people, by running scared from the best fighter at 122 pounds,” Rigondeaux continued. “I competed against more than 250 amateur boxers from every continent and none of those guys were paid to fight me. ‘The Filipino Phony’ will be paid a king’s ransom to fight me, but he’s scared enough to move up to 126 just to avoid fighting me. The problem he faces, though, is I will also move up to featherweight once I’ve cleaned out the super bantamweight division. What’s he going to do then, move up to super featherweight?” (more…)
Hated rivals David Haye and Dereck Chisora, separated by a steel fence with a team of security guards standing by, faced off of Wednesday in London at the final presser in advance of Saturday’s highly charged grudge match.
David Haye: There is no doubt this fight is happening because of the brawl we had in Germany. Without that he’d have been another anonymous Klitschko victim. After I knock him out, he’ll go back to being a nobody.
Dereck Chisora: I’m going to go crazy on you David.

It was announced today that the Wynn Las Vegas Sportsbook has established an initial line with Sergio Martinez the favorite at -170. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. backers can get +150.
Martinez said he would beat up Chavez so bad they will need DNA to identify him. “You will never recognize him after September 15th.”
Junior stated that after the fight they won’t call Martinez ‘marvelous,’ they’ll call him ‘mar-girl.’ He concluded with “…on September 15th I will knock him out!”
