Khan-Garcia: Tempers flare

By Anthony Springer Jr.
Photos: Mary Ann Owen

If a ring had been set up yesterday in the media room, Amir Khan (26-2) and Danny Garcia (23-0) may not have waited until tomorrow night. The two champions would’ve likely fought during the final press conference promoting the bout. Tempers flared on all sides and the comments were always heated and occasionally comical.

Oscar De La Hoya highlighted the significance of Saturday’s bout taking place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, openly praising both fighters for being willing to fight the best at any time. “This matchup [between Amir Khan and Danny Garcia] is a matchup that we don’t see every day. We have two young champions who are at their peak. When you have two young fighters who are willing to fight anybody, when you are willing to fight the best, which is what boxing is all about.”

Marquez faces an improved Lumacad

By Chito Yu Katangkatang

We all remember Fernando Lumacad as the young lad who was knocked out by Jorge Arce in the third round. Everybody loses at a certain point. And more often than not, a boxer’s loss will only make him better. The loss was definitely a wake up call for the young pug from General Santos City. After two losses in a row against Arce and Juan Montes, Lumacad has showed maturity and has in fact won the WBC Asia Continental Flyweight Title. His most recent notable vitory was a unanimous decision win against Glenn Suminguit in a fight held in Hong Kong.

Now, another big break is given to Lumacad as he faces WBA Flyweight Kingpin Hernan “Tyson” Marquez. Marquez is a strong puncher and has been knocking out opponents left and right. He has recently beaten late replacement Ritchie Mepranum and has knocked out Edrin Dapudong earlier. But all is fair in boxing. We never know what happens inside the ring. (more…)

Wohlman still unbeaten

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

In his most impressive performance of his young career, welterweight Zachary Wohlman won a one-sided, yet competitive four round decision over Jose Martell at the Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, CA. Wohlman worked behind the jab, countering Martell early in the fight with repeated counter left hooks to the head. Wohlman showed feints and angles that allowed him to land combinations to the head as well. Martell landed the occasional hook or cross, but it was not enough to offset Wohlman’s offense. Martell had his beat round in the third, when he was able to feint Wohlman with a jab, but came forward to land a few right hands. However, Wohlman was able to finish well, outlanding Martell in the final round. All three judges scored the bout in favor of Wohlman, 40-36, 40-36, and 39-37. Fightnews.com scored the bout 40-36 in favor of Wohlman. (more…)

Garcia’s chance for stardom comes knocking

Photo: phillyboxinghistory.com

By John Disanto – Philly Boxing History (.com)

A couple of months ago, newly crowned WBC junior lightweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia seemed to be on the same track as many other young champions still getting used to that feel of a world title belt around their waist. After beating Mexican legend Erik Morales by decision in March, Garcia waited to hear who his first title challenger would be. Based on the way things usually work in the sport, most believed Garcia would be pressured by the WBC to next face the undefeated and equally unknown Ajose Olusegun, a 30-0 Nigerian who fights out of the UK. Despite Olusegun’s impressive record, the fight figured to be little more than another sanctioning fee opportunity for the WBC and a first defense payday for Garcia. Just a routine move on the boxing chessboard. However, something happened that made the far from anticipated Garcia vs. Olusegun bout suddenly evaporate. Real opportunity knocked for Garcia. (more…)

Unbeaten WBC female 105-pound champ Naoko Fujioka (8-0, 5 KOs) 107.75, engaged in a non-title bout, where she displayed his power punching in earning a unanimous decision (80-72, 80-73 and 79-74) over Mexican Mayela Perez (10-15-3, 7 KOs), 106.5, over eight hard-fought rounds on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. Despite the lopsided tallies they put on a see-saw affair with Fujioka having the upper hand against the very game opponent. The champ occasionally scored with vicious left hooks to the cheek of Perez, who, however, didn’t care about her absorption but furiously fought back with a two-fisted attack. It was rare that a female contest had the crowd into frenzy, but their hot rallies fully pleased the spectators, who praised both boxeadoras. Fujioka will make a mandatory defense against the leading available contender to be designated by the WBC in Miyagi, her native place that had suffered an terrible earthquake disaster last year, in this coming October.

WBA flyweight world champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez (33-2-0, 25 KOs) and Filipino Fernando Lumacad (26-3-3, 11 KOs) showed their form during a public workout in advance of their clash on Saturday at the Palenque de Culiacan in an event called ¨Lethal Power¨ presented by Zanfer Promotions. “Tyson” showed his speed and power, while Lucamad showed quickness and slick moves. Their fight is a non-title ten-rounder. “I have to beat Lumacad convincingly, then we’ll see that there are very good plans for my career, but those plans are dependent on wins, so I have to do my part and win,” said Marquez.

In another fight, former WBC champion Tomas ¨Gusano¨ Rojas (38-13-1, 25 KOs) will face Manuel “Pajarito” Herrera (19-9-1, 13 KOs). (more…)
