“MAYhem in Dorchester” results

By Mark Vaz

In front of a sellout crowd, undefeated New England welterweight champion Derek Silveira (7-0, 3 KOs) of Salem, MA successfully defended his title with a fourth round knockout over veteran Shakha Moore of Connecticut in the main event of this past Saturday’s “MAYhem in Dorchester” card Dorchester National Guard Armory in Dorchester, MA. Bringing 31 professional fights worth of experience into the bout, Moore found himself outboxed from the opening round by the quick-handed Silveira, who consistently worked behind a sharp and accurate jab, eventually landing a four punch combination in the neutral corner, finishing the show with the last punch, a chopping right to the chin. Moore beat the count but still looked visibly hurt, prompting referee Bob Benoit to halt the action. (more…)

EBU orders Alekseev-Arslan rematch

After the controversial draw in the European cruiserweight championship match between Alexander Alekseev (24-2, 20 KOs) and Firat Arslan (32-6-1, 21 KOs), the European Boxing Union (EBU) has ordered a rematch. Promoters Erol Ceylan (EC Box Promotion and Waldemar Kluch (Universum Box-Promotion) have until June 23 to arrange the bout.

Rosado ready for Powell

When Gabriel Rosado learned he was fighting Sechew Powell instead of Joel Julio on June 1, he and trainer Billy Briscoe booked themselves a trip to California for three weeks of training at Freddie Roach’s famed Wild Card gym in Hollywood. “It’s just what I needed,” said Rosado (left), who meets Powell for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Junior Middleweight Title at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

“At first I wasn’t crazy about fighting a lefty, but the junior middleweight division is full of them so it all turned out for the better. I’m talking about Paul Williams, James Kirkland, Erislandy Lara. These are guys I need to get in there with so fighting Sechew Powell is another step down that road. I’m getting plenty of good work at the Wild Card and I feel good and I’m looking forward to proving myself again. I know a lot of people are skeptical, saying that the last guy I beat (Jesus Soto-Karass) was made to order for me. We’ll see if they right or wrong after June 1.” (more…)

Bute-Froch Presser

The official press conference for Saturday’s anticipated clash between IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute and former WBC world champion Carl Froch took place today at the Albert Hall in Nottingham, England.

Lucian Bute: “I’ve worked very hard for this fight. I know it’s not an easy fight for me but I came here to win. I’m a winner.”

Carl Froch: “If Bute thinks he can come here to my home and best me he’s wrong. I know what it’s like to fight against the crowd, I did it in Denmark. To come to my backyard insults me, I’m gonna punish him. I’m gonna enjoy it. Thanks to him for coming over but he’s making a big mistake.”

“It was like dream coming true, Christmas in June – fighting with the man who was and still is my idol. I always wanted to meet Roy and now we are together in Poland, announcing our fight. It’s unreal,” said #4 WBC ranked light heavyweight Dawid Kostecki (39-1, 25 KO) today in downtown Warsaw’s Marriott Hotel.

“I know that David is a good fighter, tough and I’m sure he did see all my tricks watching my tapes. This is why I will prepare something special for June 30. It’s a great feeling to know that all the blood, sweat and tears I did put into my style did not waste,” – said four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (55-8, 40 KO) who arrived in Warsaw to announce his PPV fight promoted by Square Ring Promotions and Knockout Promotions.

With only a couple of weeks before his first world-title opportunity, undefeated welterweight Mike Jones, of Philadelphia, has the look and mindset of a champion as he prepares to meet the hard-hitting former champion Randall Bailey, of Miami, FL, in one of the co-feature fights on the June 9 Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley card at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. “It is a lifelong dream to fight for the title,” said Jones, the IBF #1 rated welterweight. “All I know is I’m 100% confident in myself and my abilities. I come to win and I will not lose.”

Jones’ confident demeanor extends to his attitude about expectations as well. “I never get too high or too low,” stated Jones, 29, whose record is 26-0, 19 K0s. “I never need acceptance from anybody, whether I score a knockout or get a decision win. I stay true to myself. I believe in God and I believe in myself. That’s what matters to me.” (more…)

Abell talks about Oquendo and ‘the kiss’

Coon Rapids, Minnesota’s Joey “Minnesota Ice” Abell (28-5, 27 KOs) will be looking to pull off an upset when he takes on the more experienced two-time heavyweight title challenger “Fast” Fres Oquendo (33-7, 21 KOs) for the WBA Fedelatin Heavyweight Championship in the 10-round main event of Hitz Boxing’s “Fight Night at the Horseshoe” event at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, this Friday. Abell became part of boxing infamy when reeling from punches he was kissed by top contender Chris Arreola moments before he was TKO’d by Arreola. “He’s a prick like that. That’s part of his thing; he’s the bad guy,” explained Abell of Arreola’s public persona. “Afterwards, he apologized, but I don’t understand people like him. I’ll never really completely get over that. He’s the kind of person that doesn’t care what he does. He’s could say something and completely wreck somebody’s self-esteem and not care. If I accidentally say something that might hurt someone’s feelings, I can’t live with myself.” (more…)
