Before a celebrity packed crowd of nearly 1,000, young heavyweight prospect, Alexander “The Great” Flores, took his first step in his climb up the heavyweight rankings with a fifth round knockout of Joey Montoya on Roy Englebrecht Promotions Rumble On The Range III show at the Lakeside Golf Club in Burbank, California.
Under a beautiful California evening before the likes of Joe Pesci, Andy Garcia, Scott Baio, Oscar De La Hoya, and with a boxing ring set up on the driving range at the historic golf club started by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, 21 year old Flores, who overcame a second round accidental headbutt, goes to 9-0 with the win as he controlled the fight from the start. However the very game Montoya didn’t back down, but just couldn’t avoided Flores relentless firepower and Montoya’s corner called a halted to the onslaught after the fifth round with the Colorado Springs boxer taking his first pro loss and dropping to 4-1-3. This was the 7th knockout win for Flores who is promoted by Roy Englebrecht Promotions and mostly will now be ranked in the WBC’s top 30. (more…)
While the WBA and WBO have sanctioned the July 14 grudge match in London between David Haye and Dereck Chisora, the WBC has sided with the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) and vowed to ban the Luxembourg Boxing Federation and anyone associated with them. In a letter from WBC president Jose Sulaiman to the BBBofC, the WBC confirmed that anyone involved in the fight will be dismissed from the WBC if the fight goes ahead.
“We will expel Luxembourg from our organisation if the commission went ahead as well as any person or institution that has relations with them,” wrote Sulaiman. “We will not condone such a disgraceful behaviour (from Chisora) after seeing that this boxer has no idea of what good behaviour is, by accepting to participate in the intent to threat and embarrass the organisation of boxing with such an act. I am sure the European Boxing Union is on the verge of a strong position against Luxembourg. I am also furious with the promoter who is trying to blast the ethics, honesty and seriousness of the sport of boxing.”
More than 20,000 tickets have already been sold for the fight.

Tomorrow night Mikkel Kessler and Allan Green are fighting for the WBC silver light heavyweight world championship at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark. Today the former WBC and WBA super middleweight world champion Kessler weighed in at just 169.1 lbs. Green weighed in at 171.7 lbs. The light heavyweight limit is 175 lbs.
It was confirmed today that David Haye and Dereck Chisora’s heavyweight showdown on July 14th will be for the WBO International and WBA Intercontinental titles. The pair meet in one of the most eagerly awaited heavyweight fights in recent years at West Ham United’s Boleyn Ground in East London.
Also confirmed by promoter Frank Warren for the “Licensed To Thrill” card is Alexander Povetkin’s WBA world heavyweight title defense against former champion Hasim Rahman on the show which will be sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation. It had been expected that that bout would be moved to Germany after threats to ban all involved in the Haye-Chisora promotion by the British Boxing Board of Control.
Paco Valcarcel, president of the WBO, said, “We have to go ahead and approve the fight. The Luxembourg Boxing Federation is a member of the WBO and the problem is between the LBF and the British Boxing Board of Control, not the LBF and the WBO.”
The British Boxing Board of Control are both affiliated with WBO and WBA organizations.

Fightnews.com has learned that there a strong possibility that WBC super welterweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will defend his world title in a mega event promoted by Golden Boy Promotions at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 15. According to the source, Canelo’s handlers Eddy and Chepo Reynoso met last week with Golden Boy and it looks like James Kirkland could be the challenger as it is not certain that Miguel Cotto can fight on this date. It’s known that Kirkland currently has an injured shoulder but he remains a strong option.
The man known to many simply as “Mayhem” is at a crossroads in his career.

Saturday’s Telefutura telecast will not include the highly anticipated comeback of heavyweight contender Odlanier Solis (17-1, 12 KOs). The six-time national Cuban amateur champion and 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist last fought fourteen months ago in a challenge of WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko on March 19, 2011. That bout ended abruptly in the first round when a sudden knee injury forced Solis out of the fight almost before it began in the first round. Solis will face world-rated Konstantin Airich (23-5-2, 17 KOs) in a twelve round bout.
Telefutura’s telecast of Saturday’s card at the Pharr Convention Center in Pharr, Texas, will feature an eight-rounder between lightweights Jerry Belmontes (15-0, 5 KOs) and Remesis Gil (7-3-5, 6 KOs).
