Hoffmann-Kretschmann ends in no contest

An interesting all-German heavyweight clash between Timo Hoffmann (40-7-2, 23 KOs) and Steffen Kretschmann (16-2, 15 KOs) ended in a no contest on Friday night at the TABEA Bürgerpark in Halle/Saale, Germany, after the outdoor fight was stopped in round six due to rain and slippery conditions. Kretschmann seemed a bit ahead and it was likely unfortunate for him that they didn’t score the bout on the rounds completed. Earlier heavyweight Erkan Teper (9-0, 6 KOs) survived a knockdown to defeat Gbenga Oloukun (19-9, 12 KOs) over eight.

Other results:
Fast rising welterweight hope Roman Belaev (9-0, 8 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over Semjons Moroseks (17-20-1, 7 KOs). Big-punching super middleweight Uensal Arik (15-1, 15 KOs) scored a third round KO over Gyorgy Marosi (15-6, 9 KOs). Arik dropped Marosi with a body shot in round two and finished him with a brutal body attack in the third.

Ricky Hatton returning November 24

Former world champion Ricky Hatton officially announced that he’s coming out of retirement on Friday at a press conference in Manchester, England. “No one wants to end their career that way,” Hatton said referring to his last fight (a second round KO loss to Manny Pacquiao in 2009). “It put me into retirement, which I never wanted to do. The manner of that defeat put me into some things which have been well documented…my life turned to mush. The dream is redemption. If a world title comes with it, then so be it.” The 33-year-old Hatton said he will return November 24 in Manchester against an opponent to be named.

All eight fighters are Saturday’s quadruple header highlighting a title tilt between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Josesito Lopez were relatively short on words. To be more precise, short on any type of pre-fight hype in the form of trash talk. Oddly enough, that’s just the way Oscar De La Hoya wanted it.

Crossing his fingers throughout the entire press conference, De La Hoya showed his hand after all fighters spoke their mind heading into the Mexican Independence Day card. (more…)

Boxing Result

Vargas stays unbeaten in Top Rank debut

By Andreas Hale and Anthony Springer at ringside

Rising welterweight prospect and recent Top Rank acquisition Jessie Vargas had little trouble taking a unanimous decision over the durable but overmatched Aron Martinez in the main event of ESPN special edition of Friday Night Fights that aired on Thursday. The undefeated Vargas (20-0, 9 KOs) had an opponent who came to fight in Martinez but still owned the fight despite a relatively slow start in the early goings. Martinez (18-2-1) would bull his way forward and attempt to work the body but his punches provided little pop and never forced Vargas to drop his hands or leave himself vulnerable. Vargas did catch a few shots along the ropes but would reset himself and utilize his more polished boxing to score when necessary.

A firefight broke out in the 3rd round as Martinez stepped in and welcomed Vargas to an exchange of punches. The heated exchanges continued into the 4th round as Martinez found several openings to land some solid punches but Vargas would strafe Martinez with a straight right hand and began going to work along the ropes to take the round. Martinez refused to back down, however, and kept Vargas busy, but the infighting was still in the Las Vegas fighter’s favor. Although he was game, Martinez simply didn’t have enough power to dissuade Vargas.

Vargas again came alive and settled into his rhythm towards the end of the 7th round landing a blistering combination that shredded Martinez’ torso and a right hand that bounced off of his foe’s head. Martinez had a very strong 9th round but apparently blew his load as Vargas finished the fight strong in the 10th round and earned the unanimous decision with scores of 98-92, 99-91 and 96-94.

Freddie Roach On Mayweather-Pacquao, Chavez Jr.’s Training & 50 Cent Working With Pacquiao

By Andreas Hale
Photo: Chris Farina/Top Rank

FightNews had the opportunity to sit down with Freddie Roach and talk about a number of things ranging from Chavez Jr.’s curious training habits to what he thinks is going on with 50 Cent trying to get involved in Pacquiao’s career.

First things first, with September 15 quickly approaching and the buzz surrounding Sergio Martinez and Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.’s middleweight tilt at an all time high, the hall-of-fame trainer discussed the younger Chavez’ odd training habits. HBO 24/7 captured the Chavez skipping out on sessions with Roach and opting to train in the living room of his house rather than in a boxing ring. But while those instances really did happen, Roach says that they don’t tell the whole story.

“We got the work in, I just wasn’t 100% happy with where we did the work,” Roach says to FightNews while stating that the cameras weren’t allowed to film the two training at Chavez’ house. “I’d rather have him in the boxing ring so I can show him how to cut the ring off and not follow his opponent around. It’s hard to do that when you’re training somebody in the living room.” (more…)
