Liakhovich targets Wach

Former world champion Sergei “The White Wolf” Liakhovich (25-5, 16 KOs) has challenged undefeated Polish heavyweight contender Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs). Wach’s promoter, Mariusz Kolodziej (Global Boxing), recently announced that Michael Grant wouldn’t be fighting Wach as previously planned, and they are searching for an opponent to fight in September. Liakhovich feels that he is a perfect gatekeeper for Wach, who is rated #4 by the World Boxing Council (WBC), to test himself against. (more…)

Today Golden Boy Promotions and Televisa held a press conference in Mexico City for WBC super welterweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez against Josesito Lopez on September 15 in Las Vegas.

Canelo Alvarez: Fights are won with hard training and I should not underestimate any opponent. I always prepare to fight anyone put in front of me and I’m ready for anyone!

Josesito Lopez: No fighter is unbeatable and we must find a way to win. I’m going up in weight, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to win. I’m Mexican-American with Mexican blood and fight like a Mexican.”

The conference was also attended by WBC featherweight champion Johnny Gonzalez and WBO former world champion Daniel Ponce de Leon, who collide in the co-feature.

Philly fighters in spotlight Friday

Three of Philadelphia’a brightest up-and-comers will be on display Friday on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights in Atlantic City, N.J., when Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports presents, “Title Wave,” live professional boxing from Resorts Casino Hotel. In addition to main eventer “Hammerin’” Hank Lundy (22-1-1, 11 KOs), 29-year-old super middleweight prospect Farah Ennis (19-1, 12 KOs), who will star in Friday’s nationally-televised 10-round co-feature against Richard Pierson, and bantamweight Miguel Cartagena (5-0, 3 KOs), who will put his unbeaten record on the line against Jose Rivera in a six-round bout.

Perhaps the most unique angle with three Philadelphia fighters on Friday’s card is the fact each one is from a different neighborhood. Lundy was raised in South Philadelphia, where he got his start in boxing by knocking out a would-be bully in the streets. Ennis grew up in Germantown, a small neighborhood in the northwest section, and Cartagena was raised in North Philadelphia – the birthplace of Joe Frazier – where roughly half the population lives below the poverty line.

Guerrero and Aydin: we’re ready

By Robert Hough

Serious entertainment awaits on Saturday night if Selcuk “Mini-Tyson” Aydin performs in the ring against Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero with the same nastiness and aggression he unleashed in a recent teleconference. Aydin initially said he was both focused on training and angry at the lack of U.S. media attention so he wouldn’t say anything. It seems he was listening, though, as he leapt in about 30 minutes after the conversation started. “You speak like a politician,” the Turkish welterweight told Guerrero through a translator, long after his promoter, Ahmet Oner, related something of an obvious observation: this was the perfect opportunity to get U.S. media exposure. “You need to spend more time training and strengthening your jaw because I’m going to break it.”

Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KOs) who moves up two weight classes to face Aydin (23-0, 17 KOs) at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., for the WBC interim welterweight championship, gave it right back. “For Aydin to say that I’m talking like a politician and he’s going to break my jaw? He had better be ready, because he doesn’t know what I’ve been through,” he said. “The man’s talking a lot, like he’s going to break this and that? Well, he’d better be ready, because he doesn’t know what I’ve been through in my life.” (more…)

Burgos to face Beltran-Martinez winner?

Former world title challenger Juan Carlos Burgos (30-1, 20 KOs) will be ringside for the August 4th super featherweight clash between Miguel Beltran Jr. (27-1, 17 KOs) and Ramon ‘Rocky’ Martinez (25-1-1, 16 KOs). With former WBO 130 pound champion Adrien Broner stripped of his title after failing to make weight for his TKO victory of Vincente Escobedo this past Saturday, the Burgos camp has their eye on obtaining that belt.

“It is a very good possibility that the winner of Martinez/Beltran could fight for the vacant title even against Burgos,” said WBO President Francisco “Paco” Valcárcel. Burgos was soundly beaten in a thriller in 2010 versus Japan’s Hozumi Hasegawa for the vacant WBC Featherweight title, but has rebounded to win five straight under the guidance of long time advisor Roberto Sandoval. Burgos scored an impressive third round stoppage of then 25-0 prospect Cesar Vazquez this past Friday on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights series.

WBA #6 Tamakoshi flattens Petchphaya

By Joe Koizumi

Having upset then WBC top ranked 130-pounder Dante Jardon in Mexico last December, 31-year-old veteran Japanese campaigner, WBA#6/WBC#14 super-feather Kyohei Tamakoshi (30-7-6, 12 KOs), 130, displayed a one-punch knockout over Petchphaya Kuldampgym (8-5-1, 2 KOs), 130, when he exploded a smashing overhand to the Thailander and flattened him for the count at 2:19 of the second round in a scheduled eight on Sunday in Kobe, Japan. Tamakoshi, who had failed to win OPBF and national 122-pound belts on three occasions, had a tough time coping with the unorthodox opponent in the opening session, but his right hand became a haymaker to quickly solve a puzzle.

In the main event, newly crowned Japanese super-fly champ Teiru Kinoshita (15-0-1, 3 KOs), 114.75, barely kept his belt by a split decision (97-94 twice, 94-96) over JBC#3 ranked Atsushi Kakutani (11-3-1, 5 KOs), 114.5, over ten.

Japan Update

By Joe Koizumi

WBC#23 super-fly Hiroyuki Hisataka (21-9-1, 10 KOs), 115, landed a devastating overhand right to JBC#3 Tetsuya Hisada (19-7, 9 KOs), 114.75, and chalked up a fine TKO victory at 1:49 of the fourth session on Saturday in Osaka, Japan. Hisataka, 27, was previously unsuccessful in acquiring the world belts three times, losing to WBA flyweight champs Akifumi Sakata and Denkaosen Kaowichit, plus WBA superfly ruler Hugo Cazares. But the short but hard-hitting local prospect is still willing to fight for a world title shot for the fourth time.

Tall and lanky Hisashi Amagasa (21-4-2, 15 KOs), 125.75, kept his Japanese featherweight belt when he defeated game and durable Takuya Watanabe (15-4-1, 4 KOs), 125.75, by a unanimous decision (97-92, 99-90 and 96-94) over ten heats on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. Standing at 5’10”, Amagasa was a recklessly willing mixer without utilizing his advantageous height and reach. He, as always, loved to swap punches in the close quarter, missing the target due to ex-WBC youth champ Watanabe’s right guard. He had better learn how to utilize his left hand more properly.

In July there happened many world title bouts held in Japan, featuring four with the WBA superfly (male and female), WBC fly and WBA super-feather belts on the line. In the month of Olympic Games in London, however, we will not see any world title goes but national and OPBF title bouts will be good attractions to our fight fans in August. JBC#1 Hidenori Otake and #2 Takafumi Nakajima will dispute the vacant national 122-pound throne (renounced by Masaaki Serie) in Tokyo on August 6. Nihito Arakawa (22-1-1, 14 KOs) will risk his OPBF lightweight belt against 41-year-old veteran Takehiro Shimada (27-5-1, 17 KOs), a two-time unsuccessful world challenger, in Tokyo on August 13. This summer will be as hot as our fight scene.

Up-and-coming jr featherweight Yordanis Salinas (18-0-1, 12 KOs), WBA #5, WBC #6, kept his WBA Fedebol title with a definitive TKO victory over Dominican challenger Geysi Lorenzo (11-3, 2 KOs) in the sixth round on Monday night in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Salinas came out strong, trying to make it a short night and scored a knockdown in the first round but the game Lorenzo did get up. The Cuban-born, Miami-based Salinas then proceeded to dominate his opponent in the next five rounds with superior speed, skill and power. Lorenzo’s corner did not allow him to come out for seventh round.

In another noteworthy result, Venezuelan jr middleweight Jean Carlos Prada (27-0-1, 19 KOs), WBA #10, blasted away physically smaller Luis Ernesto Jose (31-10-2, 26 KOs) in just one round. The 14 bout international card was held at the Carlos-Teo-Cruz Coliseum.

Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KOs) silenced at least some of critics Saturday evening with his dominating performance over Vincente Escobedo (26-4, 15 KOs). He stepped to microphone, a bit less brash and flashy than normal, and also speaking words of respect for his opponent. “I want to thank Vincente for taking the fight,” Broner said. “He will fight for a world title someday. It’s just that today is not that day.”

When asked by FightNews about the high emotion and controversy around the events of the day effected him in the ring, Broner replied, “I didn’t let it get too close to me. I never had any doubt that this fight was not going to go on.” When asked about the finish of the fight, the former champ said, “I was trying to take him to deep water. I was touching him, touching him, but we found out that he wanted to stay shallow.” (more…)

South Florida boxing fans first made the acquaintance of Acquinity Sports last January during a duo of “Dominican Domination” cards from Hollywood Beach. Last night at The Seminole Hard Rock they took another step towards securing at least one (and quite probably two) of their stable of fighters for a world title bout in the same local venue.

Given the short shrift boxing generally receives in local sports editors’ and fickle fans’ minds, their dedication to stage shows at least once every eight weeks speaks to their own fighting spirit. IBF #2-ranked super featherweight contender Argenis “La Tormenta” Mendez (20-2, 10 KOs) of the Dominican Republic held off an aggressive, foul-filled assault from IBF #7-ranked Martin “El Brochas” Honorio (32-8-1, 16 KOs) to earn a 12-round unanimous decision.

Last night in Atlanta GA at the Buckhead Theater in front of a standing room only crowd, Delgado Promotions, along with Mazereon Management managed to put together a very exciting night of boxing and entertainment for a very raucous crowd. The event was not only successful based on the hard hitting action in the ring, but also due to a special appearance by two time former world champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams. Williams was presented with an honorary “Georgia Fighter of the Decade” award by promoter Lisa Hudson-Webb and Alan Santana of the WBF. When presented with the award the sellout crowd rose to their feet as camera flashes went off throughout the venue. Williams graciously accepted the award and spent the rest of the evening taking pictures and signing autographs.

In the main event, hometown favorite Paul “The Truth” Delgado (26-12-1, 4 KOs) fell short of winning the vacant WBF Intercontinental Super Welterweight title, as Mike “El Cangri” Ruiz (17-8, 9 KOs) of New York traveled south to Atlanta with an upset on his mind. (more…)

Report/gallery: Paez Jr. vs. Chavez II

Ringside report and photos by Felipe Leon

It looked like a classic Mexican showdown from a spaghetti western film as both stood in their respective corners with their supporters behind them. Most expected to see a  tumbleweed to bounce across the middle of the ring. At the end, however, this sequel had a similar ending as Jorge “Maromerito” Paez Jr. (32-4-1, 19KOs) earned yet another ten round unanimous decision over Omar “Businessman” Chavez (28-2-1, 21KOs), this time for the vacant WBC International Silver light middleweight title.
