The toughest Miller isn’t in the UFC … yet

TUF Finale 14 is LIVE on Spike TV Dec. 3!

One look at the resumes of the UFC’s fighting Miller brothers, and there’s no question that when it comes to toughness, middleweight Dan and lightweight Jim have cornered the market on that intangible trait. But then Dan’s son Danny Jr. came into the world on January 6, 2010, and in a little under two years, he’s earned the title of “Toughest Miller.” . . . Click here for more by Thomas Gerbasi, UFC.com

Popular Fernando Guerrero added to Khan-Peterson undercard

One of the East Coast’s most exciting and well-known fighters, middleweight prospect Fernando Guerrero has been packing venues for the last few years, building a grassroots following rarely seen in boxing these days. The promising 25-year-old from Salisbury, Maryland will now bring that following to the undercard of “Capital Showdown” which will feature Amir Khan defending his unified super lightweight world championship against Lamont Peterson on December 10 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

Fernando Guerrero’s addition to the event, which already features Washington, DC’s Lamont and Anthony Peterson as well as Brandywine, Maryland’s undefeated heavyweight prospect Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell, makes “Capital Showdown” top to bottom the one of the biggest cards to hit the DC area since Mike Tyson fought there. “I am excited to be getting back in the ring and fighting in the D.C./Maryland area,” said Guerrero. “I’m looking forward to putting on a great performance in front of all my fans.” (more…)

Boswell/Povetkin workouts in Helsinki

Team Sauerland

Cedric Boswell (35-1, 26 KOs) has promised to put American heavyweight boxing back on the map when he challenges WBA Heavyweight Champion Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15 KOs) on Saturday night. The duo will collide in front of a sell-out crowd of 12,000 fans at the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland. “This fight is huge for America,“ said Boswell. “I’m the one legitimate American boxer who can bring heavyweight boxing glory back to America. I´ve already paid for extra baggage to bring the belt home. My message to all boxing fans: The cold war begins December 3, 2011 in Helsinki. The American Dream will soundly defeat the Russian pretender!“

Today both fighters participated in a media work-out at the P3 boxing gym. Povetkin refused to get into a war of words with his opponent. “I will give my answer in the ring,” he said. “We´ve had a great preparation. Teddy Atlas has come up with a great strategy. I respect Boswell as a fighter, but he will not defeat me. I look forward to making the first of many successful title defences on Saturday.”

In the co-featured main event, Finnish heavyweight star Robert Helenius (16-0, 11 KOs), the WBA / WBO Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion, faces Dereck Chisora (15-1, 9 KOs) for the vacant European Heavyweight Title.

The fighters exchanged some words and both promised victory.

“This fight will be special”, Sturm, 31, promised, “I’ve never felt so good before. If I’m at my best, I will be very hard to beat for anyone out there.” The 29-year old Murray was full of respect for the WBA champ but not shy of big words either: “Sturm is a great and deserving champion but on Friday night, his time will come to end. I will dominate him. I will beat him. And I will grab his title.” His manager Neil Marsh added: “Felix made a huge mistake in choosing this fight. Martin is in tip-top shape and he won’t miss this opportunity. His time has come.” Things heated up a bit at the presser afterwards but only words were exchanged. (more…)

Jo Jo Dan to be released from hospital after broken jaw surgery

Canada-based Romanian fighter and WBC silver championship welterweight challenger Jo Jo Dan will be released on Tuesday from University Hospital in Trabzon, Turkey. On Sunday, surgeons successfully repaired his broken jaw, suffered Saturday night in round two of his close 12 round UD loss (113-112, 113-112, 115-111) to Selcuk Aydin. Gankor Promotions’ Chris Ganescu opined, “Our brave boxer fought a very competitive, action packed thrilling bout in front of 5000 mostly local fans of current WBC silver champion, Selcuk Aydin.” Although speech was difficult, Jo Jo Dan was able to say today: “If the jaw break hadn’t happened, I would have defeated Aydin. I was immediately aware of my injury but I felt I could continue and win the fight anyway. The official scores proved me wrong but I certainly came close.”

Dan will fly to Romania on Wednesday, November 30th for a well deserved vacation with his family. He is scheduled to land in Bucharest at 18:30 on a Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul. Ganescu added, “Jo Jo will certainly be out of action for an extended period. I think that he can start light fitness training again at the beginning of January 2012…and in three or four months he will certainly be well enough to begin selected light boxing training. I am proud of his gladiator performance. He will be back!”

After ten straight victories, 2000 Olympic silver medalist Ricardo Williams (19-2, 10 KOs) will fight for his first professional title on December 15 when he takes on Carson Jones (32-8-2, 22 KOs) for the USBA welterweight championship at Remington Park in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Fighting for a title “means everything to me,” Williams says. “This is something I’ve been looking forward to my whole life. I’m extremely confident in my skills, and also in my father and other coaches to study Jones and formulate a game plan. Then all I need to do is execute it.”

Jones, however, says he’s not worried. “I am very familiar with Ricardo from his days being an Olympian to the bumps in his professional career. I’ve scored six straight knockouts and I don’t see Williams giving me any trouble at all. This fight will not be going the distance.”

Amir Khan: Fans will back me even in Lamont Peterson’s hometown

By Karl Freitag

He may be fighting in his opponent’s hometown, but unified super lightweight world champion Amir “King” Khan said during an international media conference call on Monday that he will be the fan favorite against #1 rated IBF contender Lamont Peterson on December 10 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, DC.

Amir Khan: I really think going into this fight, even though the fight is in Lamont Peterson’s backyard, I really think we will have more support than him. There’s a lot of fans coming from New York and close states near Washington DC and I really think we’ve have a bigger fanbase.

We’ve had some tough, tough sparring partners who have been very strong and not taking a step back, they’re probably tougher than fighting Lamont.

He brings a lot to the table, but we know exactly how to deal with that. We’ve got a game plan that we’re going to work on and hopefully we’ll take Lamont Peterson out of his game plan and beat him. That’s our job, to beat him and move on to bigger and better things.

Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez planning for another barnburner

By Karl Freitag

During an international media conference call on Monday, world-rated junior middleweight contenders Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez both promised that Saturday’s rematch of their all-action draw from earlier this year will be another great fight.

Delvin Rodriguez: The first fight I was off about a year, so it took me a little bit to get into the rhythm. Pawel Wolak is a guy that jumps right on top of you from the first bell, but this time I’m feeling much better. I know his style. I’ve been working longer, so I think there are going to be a lot of differences in this fight. It’s going to be a good fight because you’ve got two different styles. He puts pressure a lot, he likes to stay on top of you. How do you keep somebody off you? You’ve got to let those combinations go and hit him hard. So that’s what makes it a good fight.

Pawel Wolak: I hope to bring same style of fighting I brought for the first fight. Of course, I’ve got to be smarter. I’m always going to be aggressive. I’m here to fight. I’m a fighter and I’m going to fight hard. Obviously there’s got to be some changes and things you can improve on, you’ve got to evolve, you’ve got to get better, there no question about it. I had a longer camp than I’ve ever had in my life, my body’s ready, my body is in shape and I think it’s going to be a great fight. I know he’s trained his butt off, so we’re going to settle it finally on Saturday.

Wolak (29-1-1, 19 KOs), from Rockaway, NJ, and Rodriguez (25-5-3, 14 KOs), of Danbury, Conn, will renew their in-ring hostilities on the pay-per-view undercard of Cotto-Margarito II on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.

Newly-crowned world title holder Erik Morales will return to the ring in January, Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Eric Gomez told Fightnews.com on Friday. There had been speculation of Morales possibly facing Floyd Mayweather in 2012, but Gomez put those rumors to rest with the announcement of Morales’ next fight.

Gomez also told Fightnews that Morales’ bout will take place somewhere in Mexico. “We don’t have an opponent yet for Erik or where the fight will take place,” said Gomez from Mexico City, where he was in town for Saul Alvarez’s fight against Kermit Cintron that took place on Saturday. “We’re still working with Televisa as they will dictate where and when the fight will take place.” All indications of Morales starting to train for the proposed bout in January were confirmed on his twitter page (@terrible100), tweeting on Sunday that he would take an approximately 50-minute run on Monday.

Jones’ trainer Vaughn Jackson says Lujan will not slow down their drive to the world title

Trainer Vaughn Jackson has seen, from the very first day of training over six years ago, the potential in Mike Jones. Now Jones is just one step away from realizing that potential. If the Philadelphia welterweight can defeat two-time world title challenger Sebastian Lujan in a scheduled 12-round IBF eliminator on the Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito card on Dec. 3 at Madison Square Garden, Jones is guaranteed a shot at the vacant IBF belt.

“We finally have a plan of attack for Mike,” said Jackson, also of Philadelphia. “This fight with Lujan will get us one step closer to a title. After we beat him, we’ll be happy to face Randall Bailey, who already has said that he’s eager to fight us for the title early next year. After that, we’ll be ready for anyone–Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather, Andre Berto, Victor Ortiz– you name them and we have a plan to beat them all.” (more…)
