The co-main event for this week’s ESPN2 Friday Night Fights is heating up as prospects Prenice Brewer and Patrick Lopez have engaged in a war of words leading up to their eight round junior welterweight showdown this Friday night, August 6th at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago. After hearing Lopez express that Brewer has an “amateurish style,” Brewer stated, “I guarantee that Lopez has never seen speed like this. He will get hit multiple times before he can move towards me. The TRUTH is that we’re on two different levels and that will be shown on Friday night. After Friday night, the boxing world will know who the future boss at 140 is.” (more…)

Short Money = Big Opportunity

Glen Johnson looks to make statement

By Karl Freitag
Photos: David Martin Warr

“I’ll fight anybody!,” you’ll hear many boxers bluster before they add the qualifier “…if the money’s right.” Fighters with that attitude can often go long stretches waiting for the phone to ring. You won’t find former world champion Glen Johnson in that situation. When it comes to fight purses, “The Road Warrior” checks his ego at the door when it makes sense to do so.

Nine months ago, two months shy of his 41st birthday, Johnson lost what many thought was a career-ending fight against Chad Dawson. However just three months later, Johnson was back in the ring, stopping Yusaf Mack in an IBF eliminator. Johnson took that fight for very short money. “I took that just for the opportunity,” says Johnson. “A lot of times you fight for money, and then sometimes, in my situation, you have to fight for opportunities. And that’s how I looked at that situation.” (more…)

In just four days, former Venezuelan Olympian Patrick Lopez (19-2, 11 KOs) will take on Prenice Brewer (15-0, 6KOs) as the 8-round co-feature event of ESPN2′s “Friday Night Fights” at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. The Thompson Boxing Promoted light welterweight looks to continue his winning streak by putting the pressure on Brewer and getting to him on the inside. “I am comfortable fighting taller opponents, so Brewer’s height doesn’t bother me. I watched a lot of videos of him fighting, so I feel confident in my abilities.” Continued Lopez, “I’ve been in training and keeping my body in the best physical condition possible. Brewer is going to have his hands full with me in the ring – I know he is a disciplined fighter but I also recognize that he has a bit of an amateur style.” The undefeated Prenice Brewer is confident that he will be able to dictate the pace of the fight and use his speed to dishevel Lopez’s game plan.

Marquez a master of his craft

By Graham Houston

Rematches of dramatic fights can equal the original or prove to be disappointing. The return lightweight title bout between Juan Manuel Marquez and Juan Diaz on Saturday night was well fought and pleasing while never reaching the heights of the initial meeting. Last time, Diaz tried to overwhelm Marquez with fiery, fists-pumping aggression, and his tactics, while bringing early success, were ultimately unsuccessful.

This time Diaz adopted a more strategic approach, trying to move in and out, jabbing, getting off his punches and getting away and doing his best not to stay right in front of Marquez. He never really looked like pulling off the upset with this style of boxing because Marquez was too talented a technician, but at least Diaz had the satisfaction of going the distance although widely outscored.

More on Golovkin-Nuñez

More information on the date/site shift of Gennady Golovkin’s WBA interim middleweight title showdown with Milton Nuñez has emerged. “The Colombian (Nuñez) had visa problems and couldn’t fight on August 7th,” Golovkin adviser Oleg Herrmann told FIGOsport.de. “The U.S. and Mexico have tighter immigration regulations. For Gennady there is no problem. He extended his sparring for a week and then flew to Panama. The evening at the Roberto Duran Arena is huge: 18 fights before 14,000 spectators. We didn’t want to wait for Nuñez’ visa. On August 26th is the court date in Hamburg with Gennady’s former promoter Universum. We wanted to have the fight over before then.”

NABF super featherweight champion Jason Litzau’s interview last week on Fightnews.com inspired USBA super featherweight champion Argenis Mendez to contact Fightnews. Mendez (17-1, 9 KOs) just came off of a unanimous decision win against veteran Shamir Reyes this past week and is looking forward to bigger and better fights. “If Litzau doesn’t have anyone to fight tell him to have Roy Jones contact DiBella and we can make this happen,” said Mendez. “He doesn’t have to wait around watching others fight when I’m right here and am ready to challenge him. We can put both of our titles on the line and see who comes out on top. That will leave the winner in a great position to fight for a world championship,” stated Mendez. “I don’t think there’s anyone at 130lbs. who can beat me. If Jason Litzau doesn’t have the heart to fight me I would gladly take on Jorge Linares or Robert Guerrero, both of whom failed to impress me.”
