Juan Manuel Marquez Update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

A reliable source informed that three-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is mulling over a $5 million offer for a possible third bout with Manny Pacquiao. “At this moment we have not received anything from Juan Manuel Marquez,” Golden Boy publicist Ramiro Gonzalez told Televisa Deportes. “We have no comment about something we don’t have or know, so we have no news because there is nothing in reality.” Although Marquez’ promotional contract with Golden Boy has expired, Golden Boy retains the right to match offers up to February 2012. Oscar de la Hoya, president of Golden Boy Promotions, is in Mexico City today with WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz, who will receive his WBC belt.

Oquendo OUT of Prizefighter

Due to the death of 47-year-old Wendall Granville, long time friend and partner in his non-profit charity: Fres Oquendo Boxing Academy, Fres Oquendo has decided to remove himself from the May 7 Prizefighter: International Heavyweights tournament. Oquendo, who was considered by many as a strong favorite to win the competition, just received the news about his friend’s passing. “My first phone call was to WBA heavyweight champion David Haye to inform him of the news, He was extremely supportive and said the decision was up to Fres,” said Oquendo’s manager Tom Tsatas, Oquendo also has the full support and understanding of his promoters John Wirt of Square Ring Promotions and Bobby Hitz of Hitz Boxing.

“The sudden loss of a friend is devastating and I am in deep shock, Wendell helped get me off the streets when I was a knucklehead and stuck with me through all the malaise of boxing for nearly 20 years all the way to helping me make the FOBA come to fruition. I feel I should to be here with his family and partake in any arrangements the family will make this upcoming week. I’d thank my friend David Haye and my team for their support,” stated Oquendo.

Abraham stays in Germany

Sauerland Statement on Ward-Abraham officials

Hall-of-Fame Promoter Wilfried Sauerland has postponed King Arthur Abraham’s departure to the USA since Dan Goossen and the Californian Boxing Commission have failed to take action in the row over the officials. In the Super Six World Boxing Classic semi-finals, Arthur Abraham was scheduled to take on WBA Super-Middleweight Champion Andre Ward at the Home Depot Center in Carson on May 14. As stated previously, Sauerland will not let Abraham travel to the USA before the Californian Commission honours the existing agreement over neutral officials. “Contrary to what Dan Goossen said and contrary to what has been agreed upon by all parties, the Californian Commission still insists on appointing a Californian referee and a Californian judge,” Sauerland said. “It is a shame that the completion of a high-profile global sporting event such as the Super Six tournament is being jeopardized by a promoter and his ridiculous attempts to protect his fighter. Goossen is using exactly the same tactics he did before the Kessler-Ward fight. He is playing dumb and he pretends to be in the dark about the Commission’s nominations. We have protested their decision to appoint a Californian referee because the contracts, which have been signed by Goossen and Ward, clearly state that he should be neither from the USA nor Europe. Most certainly the third man in the ring should not be one of Goossen´s neighbours from California!”

Sauerland underlined that unless the Californian Commission honours the existing agreement, Arthur Abraham will not leave Germany. “This issue needs to be sorted, that’s the bottom line. It’s ridiculous. We are not sure why Goossen and his friends are playing these tricks on us. Ward is the favourite and he is fighting at home. But maybe it has occurred to them that Arthur has the power to knock Ward out with one single punch. Maybe Goossen has realised that this time he can only protect Ward by blocking this fight to get a free trip to the final.”

Smith TKOs Moncrieffe

By Robert Coster

The grand finale of the Wray & Nephew Contender Series in Jamaica played out to a packed audience at the Constant Spring Football Field in Kingston, Jamaica on Wednesday night with Ricardo Smith (4-0, 1 KO) winning the national Jamaican middleweight title with an eighth round TKO over Devon Moncrieffe (4-1, 3 KOs). The smooth boxing Smith let the supposedly harder punching Moncrieffe wear himself out, deftly avoiding the wild rushes of his opponent. Smith then went on the offense in the later rounds, pounding Moncrieffe all over the ring and finally forcing the stoppage of the bout. The boxing reality show, broadcast by local TV, captured the interest of the Jamaican public for over 15 weeks. The winner Smith took home a prize of one million Jamaican dollars (about $11,500 US) along with his Jamaican title belt.
