Scale Watch

Weights from New Zealand

The official weights are in for the heavyweight showdown in New Zealand tonight. Shane Cameron (28-2, 21 KOs) weighed in at 206 pounds and former world title challenger Monte Barrett (35-9-2, 20 KOs) scaled in at 218.5 pounds. The bout will take place Sky City Convention Centre, Auckland, New Zealand. Barrett will look to successfully defend his WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental titles he won in his last bout where he beat former world title challenger David Tua in New Zealand. The bout was a rematch of their draw the previous year. Cameron was crushed inside of two rounds by Tua back in 2009 and now looks to do something Tua failed to do, beat Barrett.

Side note: The very popular former NFL veteran/comedian, and worldwide sports broadcaster Benny Ricardo provided the weights. Ricardo stated that Barrett appeared to be in excellent physical condition and that Cameron and had been sparring with former world champion David Haye in preparation for Barrett.

The middleweight division will really heat up this fall. First, on August 25, undefeated WBO world champion Dmitry Pirog will face fellow unbeaten WBA regular titleholder Gennady Golovkin at a site to be determined in the United States. On September 15, undisputed middleweight king Sergio Martinez will battle it out with long-time rival and WBC beltholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in Las Vegas.

Today, in Oberhausen, Germany, the third middleweight mega-fight was announced. Long reigning WBA super world 160-pound champion Felix Sturm (37-2-2, 16 KOs) will not only make the thirteenth defense of his strap, but also try to add the IBF title to his collection when he collides with the once-beaten kingpin of that organization, the Australian Daniel Geale (27-1, 15 KOs). There was a conflict about the exact date and venue, but all that is resolved now, as the pair will meet inside the ring at the Koenig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen on September 1. (more…)

Silva-Sonnen II gets personal

UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II is LIVE on PPV Saturday, July 7 at 7 PM PT/10 PM ET

Story by Anthony Springer Jr.

Question: When does a professional fight cross over from the professional into the personal?

Answer: When the fighters have to be separated at the pre-fight press conference.

Sure, pre-fight press conference antics make headlines in boxing, but after near-brawls, actual brawls and trash talk made headlines in the “Sweet Science,” the spectacle of it all became less shocking and more expected. In the world of mixed martial arts, having security step in between two fighters before the opening bell is still… well, a bit awe inspiring. (more…)

Former unified super lightweight world champion Amir “King” Khan (26-2, 18 KOs) continued his preparation Tuesday at the Wild Card Boxing Gym in Hollywood, California for his upcoming world title fight against undefeated WBC super lightweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia (23-0, 14 KOs) to be held July 14 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. “My preparation has been brilliant. A long training camp, we were over in the Philippines getting ready for the Peterson fight but that fight got called off,” Khan told Fightnews.com.

With just a little over a week to go, Khan is ready for his showdown as he looked sharp at Tuesday’s media workout, working with trainer Freddie Roach. “We have had a really good training camp we have had good sparring,” Roach said. “We are ready to fight Garcia.” Helping out in preparation for Danny Garcia, Roach has brought in the services of Ruslan Provodnikov, who is coming off a spectacular knockout win last Friday on ESPN Friday Night Fights, undefeated Armenian power puncher Art Hovannesyan, and lightweight prospect Kevin Hoskins.

McCline broke Szpilka’s jaw, but lost the fight

By Przemek Garczarczyk in Lodz, Poland
Video: Ringpolska.pl

Heavyweight Jameel McCline (41-12, 24 KOs) did not defeat 23-year-old Polish sensation Artur Szpilka (12-0, 9 KOs) losing by unanimous decision, but to the last minute of ten round fight he was more than game, stalking his faster rival in the ring. Turns out “Big Time” McCline did more than just stalking Szpilka, he broke Szpilka’s jaw in two places in the sixth round just when when the bell rang preventing the former four time heavyweight contender from ending the fight. “I tried my best, I know that I needed just seconds to finish him off, but well, give the young man a credit – he survived and won the fight,” said McCline seconds after the verdict was read in the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland. For Szpilka it was a test of skills and what a real heavyweight fight is. “I never fought anybody like Jameel. He is huge and hits very hard. He can also take a punch. I think that this fight meant more for my development as a fighter than all my previous fights combined,” said Szpilka, who after successful jaw surgery will be back in action probably in December.

Luxembourg Boxing Federation Statement: The Luxembourg Boxing Federation and a number of licence holders have today issued legal proceedings against the British Boxing Board of Control in relation to its behaviour over the Haye v Chisora fight on 14 July 2012.

We have issued proceedings to prevent the Board from intimidating its own members into not participating in the fight. The Board has admitted that it can do nothing legally to stop the fight but it is still threatening to call its licence-holders to account for their involvement. The fight is going ahead on 14 July and over 28,000 tickets have been sold. This is a fight that the public want to see and is being broadcast live in the UK, America, Germany and in more the 60 countries.
