More on Caballero-Garcia

By Gabriel F. Cordero

On Friday in Panama City, the WBA Championship Committee announced the decision on the title bout WBA featherweight champion Celestino “Pelenchin” Caballero and mandatory challenger Miguel Garcia. After reviewing all the arguments and contracts, the WBA still sees opportunities to solve the problems and granted additional time to Sampson Boxing to promote the fight before September 7, 2012, under the following guidelines: Sampson has ten days to send new contracts, setting date and place, which must be approved by both fighters. The contracts must be returned to the WBA within the seven days following their respective signatures. If any of the boxers do not sign the contract, they will lose their recognition as (champion or mandatory challenger) in the WBA rankings. (more…)

Multiple sources are reporting that WBO middleweight titleholder Dmitry Pirog has pulled out of his August 25 unification fight with Gennady Golovkin. Pirog is claiming a back injury.
———-
Next up for heavyweight Shane Cameron could be a rematch with David Tua. “I never did retire,” the 39-year-old Tua told 3News in New Zealand. “I believe without being stupid that I still have three or four years left.”
———-
Unbeaten featherweight Mikey Garcia will remain as mandatory challenger for WBA champion Celestino Caballero. Garcia was initially removed from the top of the new WBA ratings but that was called “an inadvertent error.” The WBA held a purse bid for the fight the camps never agreed to the fight.

Chavez-Paez Jr. II moved to Tijuana

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The July 21 welterweight rematch between Omar “Businessman” Chavez (28-1-1, 21 KOs) and Jorge “Maromerito” Paez (31-4-1, 19 KOs) has been to the Municipal Auditorium in Tijuana, BCN, Mexico. Originally the fight was to be held in Monterrey, but Zanfer Promotions decided that the fight was a better fit in Tijuana. “This is a natural rematch,” said promoter Fernando Beltran. “Both fighters want it, it’s demanded by the public and television, and it’s best in Tijuana where both names are very loved and respected and I think we’ll have a full house at the Auditorium.” In the co-feature, WBA interim super featherweight titleholder Bryan “Tiquito” Vazquez (28-0, 14 KOs) will defend against perennial contender Jorge Lacierva (41-8, 27 KOs).

Guzman primed and ready for Seminole Hard Rock debut

Photo: Acquinity Sports

Undefeated Dominican light welterweight Joan “Little Tyson” Guzman (32-0-1, 19 KOs) returns to action Saturday, July 21st in the main event of Acquinity Sport’s ten-bout card from The Seminole Hard Rock Live. Tentatively scheduled to face Mexican veteran Jorge “El Tigre” Pimentel (25-15, 19 KOs), the 36 year old confirms his right hand is 100% better after breaking it en route to an 8th-round KO victory over Jesus Pabon in March.

Guzman credits his new team with keeping him on pace to make waves and weight in the crowded 140lb division, including Acquinity owner Gary Jonas, trainer Herman Caicedo, manager Jose Nuñez and promoter Henry Rivalta. Caicedo’s infamous training regimen leaves Guzman in tremendous shape with two weeks of camp still remaining and will likely remove murmurs about “Little Tyson’s” past weight issues.

An Acquinity Sports spokesman stated a full fight card announcement is forthcoming.
