Fury vs. Adamek?

Immediatley after unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury stopped Vinny Maddalone on Saturday night in Clevedon, England, his promoter Mick Hennessy stated that Fury will return back to the ring in November. Though no official date or opponent was named, Hennessy hinted that former multi-divisonal world champion Tomasz Adamek was one he had in mind for the future. “Its a fight that could be big in the UK or stateside and I like the fight for Tyson,” said Hennessy.

Adamek is rumored to be returning September 8 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey against James Toney, although that proposed bout is catching some heat and has not yet been finalized.

Kell Brook Update

After unbeaten IBF #4 welterweight Kell Brook’s majority decision over the #3 rated Carson Jones on Saturday night, the attention turned immediately to what’s next for Brook. It was speculated that Brook would look to challenge newly crowned champion Randall Bailey which is still a possibility but per his promoter Eddie Hearn, it’s more likely he would fight IBF #5 ranked Hector Saldivia of Argentina in a final eliminator to become the mandatory challenger to whoever is the IBF welterweight world champion at the conclusion of the fight.

Report/gallery: Fortuna vs. Cruz

Ringside by Andreas Hale and Anthony Springer Jr.
Photos by Mary Ann Owen/Boxing in Las Vegas

In the main event of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Javier Fortuna decimated seasoned veteran Cristobal Cruz with a brilliant short left to score a 2nd round TKO. The undefeated Fortuna was head and shoulders above journeyman Cruz in the talent department and quickly went to work with a first round knockdown. Cruz — who has gone 0-2-2 in his last four fights — was wild and resorted to roughhousing tactics in an attempt to take the Dominican super featherweight out of his game. It didn’t work though as Fortuna wrapped hooks around Cruz’ gloves and slapped hooks to the body of his 35-year-old foe. (more…)

Wlad: Thompson knows it’s his last chance

Photo: Klitschko Management Group

By Karl Freitag

The paths of IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and challenger Tony Thompson have crossed many times over the years. They meet again tonight at the Stade de Suisse in Bern, Switzerland. “He has been here at training camp in (Austria) and he was a sparring partner for Vitali’s fight against Juan Carlos Gomez,” says Wladimir. “He was my sparring partner in the fight that was a long time ago, 2003, in my fight with Corrie Sanders. And I’ve fought Tony Thompson.”

Wlad wants to make it very clear that he’s not “recycling” opponents as has been alleged. “I didn’t choose Tony Thompson to fight. I’m forced to fight Tony Thompson because he’s, for all the respect that I want to give him, he has been fighting his way back to the top to become number one challenger in position number one at the IBF. And so I have to defend my IBF title and fight him.

“I’m expecting from Tony Thompson to be as aggressive as possible, because that’s his last chance for sure to fight for a championship. And I think Tony Thompson knows it pretty well. I think he knows it better than anyone else!”

Tito Ortiz goes out on his own terms

Story by Anthony Springer Jr.

One of the saddest sights in all of sports—combat sports, especially—is watching an athlete go out well past his prime. You know the guys who hold on a bit too long and end up being helped out of the ring or cage. Sure, they still get the standing ovation and genuine thanks from the fans, but that final goodbye speech is nearly as painful to watch as the beating that was doled out by their opponent in the moments prior.

Mathebula a tall order for Donaire

By Francisco Salazar
Photos: Chris Farina / Top Rank

Although Nonito Donaire is considered one of the best fighters at 122 pounds today, his goal is to one day conquer the division. That will be a tall order as Guillermo Rigondeaux, Toshiaki Nishioka, Abner Mares, Jorge Arce, and other talented super bantamweights have the same lofty goal. While the media and fight fans play matchmaker with the aforementioned fighters, Jeffrey Mathebula is sort of left out of the mix. Although he has a world title belt, he is unknown to the casual boxing fans outside his native South Africa. However, he will have an opportunity tonight to pull off a considerable upset and become a unified world champion.

Donaire and Mathebula square off in a 12 round bout for their respective titles at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. Preceding the Donaire-Mathebula bout will be a scheduled 10 round bout between super middleweights Kelly Pavlik and Will Rosinsky. Both bouts will be televised on HBO’s “Boxing After Dark,” starting at 10PM ET/PT. (more…)

Photos: Mary Ann Owen

Unbeaten Russian heavyweight power-puncher Magomed “Mago” Abdusalamov (15-0, 15 KOs) continued his reign of terror in the heavyweight division with an impressive second round TKO over Maurice “Freight Train” Byarm (13-2-1, 9 KOs) on Friday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Abdusalamov brutally battered Byarm in round one and Byarm barely made it back to his corner. Abdusalamov immediately jumped on Byarm in round two, first sending him crashing to the deck, then finishing him with his follow-up barrage. Referee Tony Weeks waved it off at :36.

In the main event, red-hot featherweight prospect Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna (20-0, 15 KOs) scored an explosive second round KO over former IBF featherweight champion Cristobal “Lacandon” Cruz (39-14, 23 KOs). Fortuna dropped Cruz in both rounds one and two. The bout was stopped by referee Robert Byrd after the second knockdown. Time was 2:22.

Unbeaten featherweight Mikey Garcia will remain as mandatory challenger for WBA champion Celestino Caballero. Garcia was initially removed from the top of the new WBA ratings but that was called “an inadvertent error.” The WBA held a purse bid for the fight the camps never agreed to the fight.

Chavez-Paez Jr. II moved to Tijuana

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The July 21 welterweight rematch between Omar “Businessman” Chavez (28-1-1, 21 KOs) and Jorge “Maromerito” Paez (31-4-1, 19 KOs) has been to the Municipal Auditorium in Tijuana, BCN, Mexico. Originally the fight was to be held in Monterrey, but Zanfer Promotions decided that the fight was a better fit in Tijuana. “This is a natural rematch,” said promoter Fernando Beltran. “Both fighters want it, it’s demanded by the public and television, and it’s best in Tijuana where both names are very loved and respected and I think we’ll have a full house at the Auditorium.” In the co-feature, WBA interim super featherweight titleholder Bryan “Tiquito” Vazquez (28-0, 14 KOs) will defend against perennial contender Jorge Lacierva (41-8, 27 KOs).
