Mean Joe Greene returns

Junior middleweight contender “Mean” Joe Greene (22-1, 14 KOs) will return to the ring this Saturday inside the Grand Ballroom at Fitzgerald’s Hotel & Casino in Tunica, Mississippi, in six-round bout against local journeyman William “Pete” Johnson. It’s been a long road back for Greene who battled with depression and a loss of focus after suffering his first loss in June of 2010, a close, but unanimous 10-round decision against fellow up-and-comer Vanes Martirosyan in his own home state of New York. Greene is currently training in Florida and promoter Greg Cohen says after one or two tune-up bouts, Greene should be ready for anyone.

WBC: Chavez Jr-Alvarez can wait

Official WBC Statement: The World Boxing Council has not received any official request to sanction the fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and the fighters currently have statutory commitments which they are obliged to comply with; the same WBC Rules and Regulations that have taken them to their respective world championships.

It is not very courteous and respectable either, that promoters announce some fight before receiving authorization from the organization that recognizes their fighters as world champions, even though the WBC does not object at all to such fight being carried out.

It is our opinion that Julio, as well as Saul, could make several defenses to have more experience and higher international renown, as that is when they could earn much more money than the money they can earn now. (more…)

Mayfield battles on, faces Lopez

Story by Robert Hough

Boxers like Karim “Hard Hitta” Mayfield get small checks for fighting, do what they can to make ends meet and press onward ever onward in their quests for championships and big money.

Mayfield (14-0-1 9 KOs), a San Francisco native, fights Patrick Lopez (20-4, 12 KOs) on Oct. 1 in Tunica, Miss., for the WBO NABO light welterweight title. Mayfield’s second fight this year follows his June 17 TKO win over Steve Forbes (35-10, 11 KOs) in a televised fight in Austin, Texas. National exposure was a big step forward and winning the NABO title would be another good step, but these are times of lean living, said the 30-year-old father of three. (more…)

Abril-Moses WBA eliminator

By Phil Doherty

The South Florida boxing promotional landscape saw a spike in competition recently with new kids on the block like Miami-based Dream Team Boxing staking a claim to a seat at the table with the big boys. Hoping to establish themselves as fellow “Kings” of the sport, Dream Team promoters Carlos Rodriguez and Henry Rivalta announced a cross-promotion with legendary Don King scheduled for October 22nd.

Dream Team’s third-ranked WBA lightweight Cuban star Richard “El Tigre” Abril (16-2-1, 8 KOs) steps up against King’s WBA #4-ranked former lightweight champion Paulus “The Hitman” Moses (28-1, 19 KOs) of Namibia for the interim WBA lightweight title in Panama during the WBA’s annual KO to Drugs co-main event. The move is all part of the plan Dream Team put into place for Abril, who at 5’11’’ found it difficult to find willing opponents in the past. However, his future is quite clear as the winner of this bout becomes the mandatory challenger for undefeated WBA World lightweight champion Brandon “Boom Boom” Rios (28-0-1, 21 KOs). (more…)
