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…)

Pavlik wants another chance

According to co-manager Cameron Dunkin, former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik regrets his “horrible decisions” and is willing to fight for $10,000. Speaking to ESPN, Dunkin said Pavlik seems like he really wants to fight again. As you might remember, in August Pavlik disappointed his promoter Top Rank, the SHOWTIME network and legions of hometown fans in Youngstown, Ohio, by pulling out of a scheduled SHOWTIME-televised fight on one week’s notice, complaining about his purse of $50,000 and also a $1.35 million offer to challenge IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute in November. At the time Pavlik told WFMJ television that he wouldn’t fight “for peanuts.”

It seems that the verbal war between Marcos Maidana and Amir Khan that lasted almost one year is about to end as the British fighter has finally admitted publicly that he does not want to give Maidana a rematch. “A lot of you want to see the Maidana rematch (and) yes it was a cracking fight. I enjoyed watching it too. It could happen. Let’s see him fight Bradley,” Khan said today. After Maidana asked Khan for the rematch of the 2010 fight of the year Khan, looked the other way citing different excuses. Now, Khan finally admits that he wants no part of Maidana again and is telling Maidana whom he should fight next. Therefore, Maidana is offering the British a position as his new advisor.
