Of course, we are doing this with great cooperation from our good friends, Main Events and with help from HBO, but this is a major step for Gennady,” said K2 Promotions managing director Tom Loeffler after the kickoff press conference in New York before Golovkin (27-0, 24 KO) defend his WBA and IBO middleweight belts against another knockout artist, Brooklyn’s own Curtis Stevens (25-3, 18 KO).

New governing body American Boxing Association sanctioned by ABC

The first and only governing body in boxing history exclusively for United States citizens – American Boxing Association (ABA) — has been officially sanctioned by the Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC). “This is a monumental time in boxing history because the ABA is the first and only belt to be fought for and defended in America, by American citizens,” ABA Chairman Dean Smith said. “Like there are British champions, for example, why should the greatest country in the world not have an America champion?”

The ABA will feature champions in 17 weight classes, for both men and women, open to any American in the (ABA) top 40 ratings to fight for and defend with a sense of national pride. The ABA is also waiving its sanctioning fees for its first championship bout in every weight division. ABA Championship Committee members also include Rick Alston, Steve Holdsworth, Buddy Bereal, Jim Borzell and Col. Bob Sheridan.

The (ABA) is also donating 5-percent of all its sanction fees to The Boys and Girls Clubs of America in cities across the country.

Lomachenko-Oquendo a no-go

By Rey Colon – The Sport Press

Featherweight Jonathan Oquendo (23-3, 16 KOs) will not be fighting two-time Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko. The two were slated to meet in Lomachenko’s pro debut on the October 12 Bradley-Marquez card in Las Vegas. “It won’t go for two reasons,” said Oquendo. “First I have an injury to one of my knuckles on my left hand and lost a couple of weeks of training. In addition, the economic part is not the best. I didn’t like it…and I had everything against me. If that fight happened I would have had to win by knockout because the decision would be given to him. I was going to be a stepping-stone. The kid may be a star, but he’s not invincible and was going to have to deal with me.”

Lomachenko will now take on Jose Ramirez (25-3, 15 KOs) in his pro debut with a WBO world title shot planned for his second fight against the winner of Orlando “El Fenomeno” Cruz and Orlando “Siri” Salido.

Burns primed to defend belt against Beltran

See Burns vs. Beltran on AWE TV and AWEtv.com this Saturday at 3PM ET/noon PT

Ricky Burns and Raymundo Beltran came face-to-face for the first time at a press conference ahead of their WBO World Lightweight title clash at the SECC in Glasgow on Saturday night (September 7) live on AWE TV and www.AWEtv.com.

Burns defends his title for the fourth time against the Mexican and hot off the back of his exhilarating defence against Puerto Rican danger man Jose Gonzalez. The Coatbridge star dug deep after a tough examination in the first seven rounds to keep hold of his belt when Gonzalez retired on his stool before the tenth, and Burns expects another hard test on Saturday.

“I’ve known that this is going to be a tough fight and there may be times that I have to dig deep but I am prepared for a hard twelve rounds as I always am,” said Burns. “I’ve watched Raymundo box a few times and I’ve got a DVD of him, we’ve been working on a plan we think will work and everyone knows that I can box in many different ways, but I plan on instigating the fight on Saturday.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez Teleconference

By Felipe Leon

A calm, cool and collected 23-year-old Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) presided over a teleconference Tuesday afternoon from his training camp to promote his much anticipated scheduled twelve round bout against pound for pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs). Billed as “The One”, the Golden Boy Promotions with Mayweather and Canelo Promotions event will be held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, NV, and broadcast live by Showtime PPV.

After an excited “Golden Boy” Oscar De La Hoya addressed the conference and mentioned that the fight festivities begin on the Thursday prior with Shawn Porter vs. Julio Diaz II, he introduced Alvarez, “the fight is getting close. This event is set to break all records and all indications show that ‘The One’ will be the one. We have a great card from top to bottom. Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is loved by many and he is getting better. He has not shown his full potential but on September 14th he will be showing his best.” (more…)
