Hatton predicts Pacquiao victory

British boxing legend Ricky Hatton knows better than anyone what Timothy Bradley is up against when he takes on Manny Pacquiao, having faced, and lost, against the Pacman himself in 2009. However, the ‘Hitman’ believes that Bradley has all the tools to make it a tough night for the reigning WBO welterweight world champion and thinks we may be in for something very special when the two go head-to-head.

“Manny Pacquiao is the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world and he goes into this fight as the favourite but Timothy Bradley is a very slick and tidy boxer so this isn’t going to be an easy fight for him. Against Junior Witter we saw how well schooled Bradley was and how he was able to figure out his style so quickly so I think he will cause Pacquiao some problems,” said Hatton.

“I think style wise this could be an even better matchup than the recent fight between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto. Mayweather is exceptional defensively and makes you miss but Pacquiao is a lot more exciting and when you put him in with Bradley style wise it makes for a great fight,” he said. (more…)

Bute bloodied but unbowed

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Photo: Herby Whyne

After suffering his first defeat as professional to now three-time world champion Carl Froch, Lucian Bute has stayed in Europe and travelled to his native Romania as he usually does after big fights. “Lucian needs time, he needs to regroup,” trainer Stephane Larouche told FightNews Monday evening after touching down in Montreal. “He needs to sit down, to relax. How he will come back from this? We’ll see. He deserves the respect, we always win as a team and we lose as one as well.”

“Physically he’s perfect,” said Larouche of his fighter who required five stitches to close a cut above his eye. Other wounds suffered by the fighter will take considerably longer to heal. “He’s more heart-broken than anything else.”

The fight itself didn’t take long to go south. A highly charged and competitive first round had both fighters landing but Froch gaining the upper hand. “After the first round, we felt everything was still possible,” said Larouche. “According to me I thought we lost the first round but Lucian came in the corner and knew it was time to re-organize, regroup and step up; but unfortunately, he just stayed the same. This is where the fight turned around, Lucian should have been able to do things quicker, faster, better and he did not. Another good round for Froch and he hurt him in the second…he hurt him in the third…he hurt him in the fourth and I think we were done at that point. He was not recovering as much as he was trying. He didn’t quit, he wanted to go on. He was asking to go one more round, let me go one more. This is what I liked, he never quit.” (more…)

WRDW-TV in Atlanta is reporting that former welterweight and jr middleweight world champion Paul Williams was involved in a tragic Sunday morning motorcycle crash near Atlanta that has likely left him paralyzed from the waist down. According to an AP story, Williams’ spinal cord was severed after he was thrown from his bike and he landed on his back and head.

Paul is said to be conscious and alert in an Atlanta hospital and manager George Peterson told WRDW-TV that surgery is scheduled for Wednesday to help stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it.

It was just confirmed last week that Williams would challenge WBC super welterweight world champion Saul ¨Canelo¨ Alvarez on September 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Audley targets Price or Fury

Audley Harrison has announced he is seeking endorsement from the British Boxing Board of Control, to be the next challenger for the British heavyweight title. Fresh from his 4th round dismantling of Ali Adams to become International Masters Champion, Audley expressed his excitement and determination to get back to training and plans to resume training as soon as he arrives home in California later this week.

Harrison commented “I know after the Haye fight people didn’t expect to see me anywhere near a ring again, but I really enjoyed myself on Saturday night. The place was packed and to have most of the crowd cheering and applauding my finish, made me feel great. It took strength of character and belief in myself to not throw in the towel and call it a day; I proved to myself I still want to be a prizefighter. The explosive way I finished off Ali Adams, would be a handful for any heavyweight and I’m looking forward to building from this performance and getting myself back into the mix.” (more…)

Tarver-Kayode: Real Animosity

Photo: Gene Blevins – Hoganphotos/Golden Boy

It’s no act. It will be a serious grudge match when IBO cruiserweight champion Antonio Tarver and challenger Lateef Kayode collide in a nationally televised on Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. Kayode takes offense at Tarver’s critical comments about him during telecast where Tarver works as a ringside analyst. The fighters showed their distain for each other during a media conference call last week.

Lateef Kayode: “I’m going to prove that all the things he said about me were wrong. First of all, he said all my punches were sloppy and second of all, he said I’m not fighting with any spirit. Every time I fight on ShoBox he says the same thing. I saw him in downtown L.A. and said, ‘Why do you always says those things about me on ShoBox?’ He said he’s just doing his job, but when I was doing good and connecting on my punches he just quiets down and says nothing. He only concentrates on my mistakes. If this fight were in the streets, I know I would win. I come from far away and have struggled all my life. My prediction is that I think I’m going to knock him out in the fifth round or the sixth round…He’s going to get hurt so bad, so bad. I’m coming for him.””

Antonio Tarver: “I’m not paid to stroke anybody or sit behind that desk and promote or market a fighter. I’ve got to see it with my own eyes and tell it how I see it. The way I see it may not be the way your average viewer sees it, but I come from years of experience as one of the most decorated amateurs of our time and I’ve been a very successful professional fighter, so I think I know the game of boxing back and forth. I’ve had one of the best trainers and philosophers since I was 10 years old so I’ve been schooled very well. What I see may not be obvious to the naked eye. I wasn’t ever trying to be overly critical of Lateef. He’s a guy who is ranked high across the board and if he wasn’t worthy, then I wouldn’t be fighting him. That’s what he needs to understand. It’s not all about him. We all need to go back to the gym every time. (more…)

Malinga to fight for vacant IBF belt

By Ron Jackson

South Africa’s Vusi Malinga will be having his second crack at trying to win a “world” title when he faces Mexico’s unbeaten Leo Santa Cruz for the vacant IBF bantamweight belt at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California on Saturday night. The belt became vacant when the champion Abner Mares decided to move up to the junior featherweight division.

In March 2009 Malinga (20-3-1, 12 KOs) was smashed to defeat inside a round when challenging Japan’s Hozumi Hasegawa for the WBC bantamweight belt. Since that that setback he has stopped Fadhili Majia in three rounds for the vacant WBO Africa bantamweight title in September 2009 and in October last year he outpointed Michael Domingo over 12 rounds in an IBF eliminator.

Strange Incident: Referee DQs Alvarez

Alvarez insisted that disqualification was the result of longstanding personal differences between him and Ramirez and not anything that happened in the fight. Ramirez stated Alvarez was DQ’d because of disrespect. Officially the judges had Alvarez ahead 40-37, 39-37 and 39-38. It had been six years since Alvarez’ last fight in April 2006 against Jorge “Travieso” Arce.

Aguiniga still undefeated

Story and photo by Francisco Salazar at ringside

Former world title contender Jose Aguiniga remained unbeaten with a seventh round stoppage victory over Eduardo Arcos at the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, CA. Aguiniga looked much sharper and trimmed down compared to his February 25th victory over Juan Ruiz. Aguiniga threw and landed at will against Arcos, finishing each combination with a left hook to the body or overhand right hand to the head. The only blemish on Aguiniga was a cut from an accidental headbutt in the third round that bled profusely from above his hairline. From that point on, Aguiniga pressed the action more, stunning a game Arcos in the sixth round with an overhand right hand to the head. A left-right combination by Aguiniga to the head sent Arcos backwards against the ropes, prompting referee Wayne Hedgpeth to step in and stop the bout at 1:45. Aguiniga, from nearby Oxnard, improves to 33-0, 15 KOs. Arcos, from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, falls to 18-7-1, 15 KOs. (more…)
