Key participants in the “Capital Showdown” card participated in an open workout in the heart of Washington, DC at the Kennedy Recreation Center. The boxers involved received warm welcomes from the media as well as boxing fans, including many who came in support of Unified Super Welterweight champion Amir Khan. Khan was the last of the boxers to work out and he received a rousing ovation as he and his trainer, Freddie Roach, came into the ring. Unlike the rest of the boxers participating who walked in the ring and started working out, Khan and Roach took their time and started their workout from scratch as Roach wrapped Khan’s hands, giving casual fans an idea of how a boxer prepares for a workout.

New Hall of Famers Johnson, Roach, meet in DC

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Two of the members of the International Boxing Hall of Fame class of 2012 learned about their inductions while in Washington, DC. One is a native who many people say is the greatest boxer to come out of the Washington area since Sugar Ray Leonard. The other is in DC on business preparing one of his top boxers for a championship title defense Three-time world champion Mark “Too Sharp” Johnson and legendary trainer Freddie Roach exchanged congratulations during the open workout for the Capital Showdown card. Both men talked with Fightnews about their inductions.

“This is a dream come true for me. Even without getting the right fights, I made it in. I think being the first African-American to be a flyweight champion was big. It was a hard road, but all I can say is wow. After five years, to be inducted on the first ballot like Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Sugar Ray Leonard and to go in with Thomas Hearns, it’s a dream come true.” – Mark “Too Sharp” Johnson

“To be inducted is a great thrill. My mentor, Eddie Futch is there and now I’m right there with him. To be in the same class with Thomas Hearns, a great fighter, Michael Buffer, a great announcer and with Mark, it is just a great thrill.” – Freddie Roach

Don Da Bomb, ready for Andrade

By Johnny B’

Chicago’s world ranked USBA super middleweight champion Donovan George (22-1-1, 19 KOs) aka Da Bomb, is ready for the big time. To prove he’s worthy of his world ranking, and to obtain a chance for the opportunity to challenge undefeated IBF world champion Lucien Bute, Donovan needs to be impressive and victorious in his next fight. In that match Don will face hard-punching perennial contender Librado Andrade (30-4, 23 KOs). The bout is a twelve round IBF eliminator and will take place on December 17th in Cozumel, Mexico. The only blemish on Donovan’s record is a 7th round technical decision loss in July of 2010 to Francisco Sierra 24-5-1 in Oklahoma. Sierra recently challenged IBO champion Thomas Oosthuizen 17-0-1 November 23rd and was stopped in the 11th round.

Interview: Former champion Alex ‘El Nene’ Sanchez explains his comeback plans

Former world champion Alex ‘El Nene’ Sanchez (31-7-1, 21 KOs) of Puerto Rico returns to the ring for the first time in nearly four years this Friday. Sanchez will take on former world title challenger Glen Donaire (17-4-1, 9 KOs) of the Philippines. The bout is scheduled for 12 rounds with the WBC Latin flyweight title at stake and the winner likely finding himself elgible to challenge for a world title. No one could ever deny that Sanchez fought the best with names like Hall of Famer Ricardo Lopez and future hall of famer Ivan Calderon on the top of a long list of top opposition. His seven losses and one draw all were either former, current, or future world champions at the time he fought them, so the numbers speak for themselves. Now at 38 years of age, Sanchez still has the hunger to again position him to challenge and win a world title. Fightnews spoke with Sanchez as he is just days away from his big comeback. (more…)

Text and photo: Przemek Garczarczyk

“I hope that we are welcoming in the Polish Museum of America, with traditional bread and salt, a future boxing world champion, Andrzej Fonfara,” said Museum director, Jan. M. Lorys during a special press conference announcing Fonfara’s (19-2, 10 KOs) fight against Phil Williams (11-4, 10 KO) on December 16 in UIC Pavillion in Chicago. Fonfara, who won all of his last seven fights by KO and is ranked at #9 by WBO, wants to fight for the title in late 2012. “I’m ready to do it. I know that I have skills to compete with the best. But I’m not overlooking Phil Williams. Last time when we were supposed to fight, he said that he didn’t have enough time to prepare. This time he got two months to be ready, so no excuses this time,” said light heavyweight Fonfara, who spent the last 4 weeks in Australia as a primary sparring partner of cruiserweight Danny Green.

Lemieux back Saturday: Steaming Bull ready to land leather against Alcine in Montreal

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Knockout artist David Lemieux (25-1 24KO) said all the right things Wednesday afternoon as the middleweight put the final touches on his preparations at a public workout session in advance of this Saturday’s local match-up against former world champion Joachim Alcine (32-2-1 19KO) at the Bell Centre in Montreal. There was the talk of how new trainer Marc Ramsay was just what the doctor ordered; how he had learned valuable lessons from his only defeat, a stunning knockout loss to the hands of Marco Antonio Rubio in April; how he is prepared for twelve tough rounds against a quality opponent in Alcine.

But scratch below the surface a little bit and it won’t take much to uncover the one man wrecking crew who scored 24 knockouts in his first 25 professional fights. (more…)
