Kayode camp wants TKO loss erased

Greg Cohen, promoter heavyweight Lateef Kayode, says the WBA and the Nevada State Athletic Commission have a clear duty to his fighter, should WBA interim heavyweight champion Luis Ortiz’s positive post-fight drug test for the steroid nandrolone stand at an upcoming NSAC hearing and his WBA title be stripped. “I think it’s only fair that my fighter’s loss be erased by the Nevada Commission. And I believe the WBA should reinstate Lateef to his former position in the ratings and let him fight again for the interim championship against a fighter that isn’t cheating. Lateef earned his place into a title fight and he deserves the chance to compete for it on a level playing field.”

Kayode ‘earned’ his WBA title shot with wins over Travis Fulton (22-37-1, 21 KOs) and Jonte Willis (9-10-1, 3 KOs) after moving to heavyweight from the cruiserweight division. He was stopped in the first round by Ortiz. (more…)

Pacquiao, Roach, Arum Quotes from the Philippines

By Karl Freitag

World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs), Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach and Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum hosted an international media conference call on Thursday. All three are in General Santos City, Philippines, where Pacquiao has been in deep, rigorous training for his November 22 title defense in Macao, China, against undefeated WBO junior welterweight world champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs), which is now less than a month away.

Manny Pacquiao: I’m excited to fight again with a tall opponent like Algieri. I know what I’m doing in the fight. We practiced hard in the gym different techniques. I’m confident that I’m going to win the fight in Jesus’ name. He’s doing his best in training and I’m doing my best in training so it’s really gonna be a good fight.

Freddie Roach: My first day with Manny we went twelve rounds (with pads) and Manny wasn’t even breathing. We had a great start, maybe the best start we’ve ever had and sparring’s been going really well. We have over 34 rounds of sparring so far. We’ve got some great sparring partners with Victor Postal, #1 contender in the world, Mike Jones, a big 147-pounder (and others). All guys tall, I think some better than our opponent, but we’ll see very soon.

Bob Arum: [On Pacquiao playing pro basketball in the Philippines] Professional basketball, no matter where the country is that you play, is a rugged sport and a player can turn an ankle very, very easily. These NBA players are fantastic physical specimens and yet they get injured all the time, so an injury would have really wreaked havoc with the fight, so I was not very pleased. But Manny has assured Freddie, Freddie has assured me that that’s it. After he does the fight on November 22, if he wants to try out for the New York Knicks, it’s OK with me.

“I understand why reporters, fans will ask me about Gennady Golovkin, although I’m not fighting GGG but Domenic Spada this Saturday in Monte Carlo. I understand that well, but this is what happens when you’re #1 in our sport. I want to be #1. I know I’ll be ready,” says Martin Murray (28-1, 12 KOs) in a Fightnews.com interview. Murray is in Monte Carlo, where he will be challenged by Italy’s Domenico Spada (35-5, 19 KOs) with a likely February 2015 clash with GGG on his mind…

You were just introduced to me as the “#2 middleweight in the world.” Do you see yourself that way?

No doubt. We all know who is #1, but I think my skills, my dedication to the sport give me right to call myself that. I fought tough opposition, developed as fighter, mentally and physically, to have the right to think that. (more…)

Rodriguez brings nickname controversy to Telemundo telecast

puto-rodriguez300
Unbeaten super flyweight Edwin “Puto” Rodriguez (7-0, 4 KOs) of Puerto Rico takes on Ricardo “Meserito” Rodriguez (9-2, 3 KOs) of Mexico this Friday in the Boxeo Telemundo Ford main event. The bout is scheduled for 10 Rounds with the WBC FECARBOX title on the line. Site of the bout will be the Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Rodriguez will be fighting for the first time out of his native Puerto Rico and and this will be his first scheduled ten round bout. Rodriguez however doesn’t view any of this as a distraction mentally as he is just days away from the fight.

What has been the topic throughout the promotion for this fight has been his nickname. In Puerto Rico the word “Puto” is used as a slang term for a male gigolo. However, in some other Latin countries it’s a very derogatory and offensive expression denoting a gay male. Added to the mix is that Rodriguez may even have his nickname on the back and front of his shorts, something that may not sit well with Telemundo executives or many of the viewers. (more…)

McDonnell: I am not scared to have a fight and I want to prove myself against the best

Gavin McDonnell says he can handle the step-up to international class against Vusi Malinga on Saturday night at the Ice Arena in Hull, live on Sky Sports.

McDonnell has yet to face overseas opposition in his 13-fight career and comes into the fight after drawing in his last outing when he defended his British Super Bantamweight title against Josh Wale.

The South African World title contender returns to the UK after losing out to Stuart Hall for the IBF Bantamweight title in December. Malinga has challenged Leo Santa Cruz and Hozumi Hasegawa for World honours and McDonnell is excited to be mixing with the experienced southpaw as he bids to enter the World scene.

“I am relishing getting in there and showing people what I am about,” said McDonnell. “I was a bit down about the last fight because it was a draw and nobody wants a draw because it isn’t a win. I asked for a big name. Not many people would probably go in there with Malinga who guarantees a 12-round fight but I am not scared to have a fight and I want to prove myself against the best and he is up there, and it is a massive step-up for me. All being well I will get the win then we can sit down and see where we go. (more…)

Tyson Fury removes gag and calls out Anthony Joshua, says he’ll fight Joshua in December “after smashing Chisora!”

By James Slater

Unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury’s recent self-imposed “gagging” has come to an end. Back in July, after a foulmouthed rant The BBB of C did not in any way find amusing, Tyson was to find himself being fined £15,000 ahead of his ultimately postponed return bout with Dereck Chisora.

The return clash then set for November, Fury turned up at the press conference with tape across his mouth and he would not, his uncle and trainer Peter Fury stated, talk to the media lest it get him in more trouble. Fury kept silent for a while, but yesterday evening Fury broke his vow of silence. Angered at the way promoter Eddie Hearn claimed 2012 Olympic gold winner and current 9-0(9) contender Anthony Joshua would “destroy” Fury “right now,” Fury called out Joshua on Twitter:

Murray-Spada Press Conference

murray-spada-300
Middleweight Martin Murray of the UK says he plans to “do a job” on Domenico Spada on Saturday, using the opportunity to demonstrate that he is one of the best middleweight fighters in the world.

WBC bantamweight champ, unbeaten southpaw Japanese Shinsuke Yamanaka (22-0-2, 16 KOs), 118, successfully kept his belt as he floored official challenger Suriyan Sor Rungvisai (37-6-1, 16 KOs), 117.25, from Thailand, three times to win a unanimous decision (114-110, 116-108, 115-109) over twelve hard-fought rounds.

On the undercard, formerly two-class world champ Takahiro Ao (27-2-1, 12 KOs), 137, defeated two-time world titlist Juan Carlos Salgado (26-4-1-1NC, 16 KOs), 135.75, by a unanimous decision (97-94, 97-93, 98-92) over ten hot frames.
