Kessler: I am hitting harder than ever

On May 19, Mikkel Kessler will move up in weight, clashing with Allan Green for the WBC Light Heavyweight World Championship (Silver). Today the Viking Warrior opened his gym during a media workout in Copenhagen. Here is what the three-time world champion had to say about his preparation for a fight at Denmark’s most famous football stadium, which also features a live screening of the UEFA Champions League Final. Kessler says he’s ready for his first fight at light heavyweight. “I have put on some pounds and I am hitting harder than ever,” he said. “And I must say I haven´t lost any of my speed either. Going up to light heavyweight has given me much more one-punch KO power.” He has vowed to teach Green a lesson. “He will get the first taste of my new KO power. He is going to be the first person I hit without head guard and sparring gloves. It will be an unpleasant experience for him. He is a big puncher with a lot of power, but punchers usually don´t like to get hit. They have a big punch but not a good chin. I don’t think Green will last for 12 rounds in the same ring with me, but he will ultimately find out on May 19.”

Boxing back in D.C. May 12

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Keystone Boxing, who had a sellout card last time out at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, returns with a scheduled eight-bout card on Saturday, May 12. On this card, youth will be served as there will be a number of pro debuts and two boxers who, if they weren’t pro boxers, would be concentrating more on graduation and the high school prom.

DC lightweight Ty Barnett returns to action in the eight-round main event against veteran Robert “Don’t Lose” DaLuz of Providence, RI. Barnett (19-2-1, 12 KO’s) fought in DC for the first time in almost five years in his last outing, winning an eight-round unanimous decision over another veteran, Damon Antoine, on the last Keystone card on March 10 at the Convention Center. DaLuz (13-40-3, nine KO’s) is a very similar boxer to Antoine — someone who gives prospects solid work in the ring. DaLuz has lost 12 in a row, but has only been stopped once in those 12 bouts and only four times in his career. DaLuz will be facing a Beltway Boxer for the fourth time in his career, losing two competitive bouts to Clarence Vinson and one to Thomas Snow. (more…)

Dragon Punch vs. Hanagata Special

By Joe Koizumi

WBA featherweight champ Chris John (46-0-2, 22 KOs) said, “I’ll defend my belt with him with Dragon Punch” as the Indonesian hero having kept his belt on no less than fifteen times is called “dragon” at his home turf. Japanese challenger Shoji Kimura (24-4-2, 9 KOs), handled by ex-world flyweight ruler Susumu Hanagata, countered with his quick reply, saying, “I will respond to the champ’s attack with Hanagata Special.”

What’s Hanagata Special? He described it as a special weapon to dethrone the Indonesian dragon with a single shot coached by Hanagata, who won the world belt at his fifth attempt in 1974. They will square off here in Singapore on Saturday. (more…)

WBC light fly titleholder Kompayak CP Freshmart (45-3, 30 KOs) scored a technical decision over WBC #6 Jonathan Taconing (13-2-1,10 KOs) to retain his WBC 108lb crown on Thursday at the Central Stadium of Buriram Province, Thailand. This was not a good performance of the champion who survived from the punchstorms in round five by the referee interrupting the action and deducting a point from uncut Filipino due to an accidental head clash in round four. Finally, the bout was ended at the beginning of round six when the ring physician recommended referee to terminate the fight because of the same cut at Kompayak’s left eyebrow. So, the fight was sent scorecards which were read as Zanashir Taznaa (Mongolia) 47-47, Geoffrey Belton (New Zealand) 48-46 and Takeaki Kanaya (Japan) 50-45. Your fightnews correspondant agreed with Mongolian Judge.

Richard Abril remains WBA champion

By Gabriel F. Cordero

We have been informed by manager Ricardo Rizo via phone that the Board of the World Boxing Association has made a decision on the status of lightweight Richard Abril at their meeting in Miami. Among the items discussed were the irregularities of the weight of Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios, as well as the controversial scoring in Las Vegas where they announced Rios a winner by split decision. The fight was reviewed by eleven experienced officials, taking into account the report of the supervisor, and all gave the bout to Abril as the winner. The proposal made by the World Championships Committee, and supported by the Officials Committee, was to keep Abril as interim lightweight world champion. All Board members present in Miami approved the decision.

“Ring Kings” is HBO’s “Game of Thrones”

Story by Andreas Hale
Photos by Chris Cozzone

Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto’s May 5th clash is reminiscent of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

The showdown between the undefeated Mayweather and Cotto has been billed as “Ring Kings” primarily based on Floyd Mayweather’s dominance over the sport for the past sixteen years. By comparison the Mayweather empire is much like the Lannister dynasty from the HBO’s series — wealthy and powerful. Mayweather has ruled the boxing world with an iron fist and — whether it is love, envy, hate or something in between — he invokes emotion out of anyone he comes in contact with. Undefeated and rarely tested, there is much speculation as to whether anyone can challenge him. (more…)

Before their world championship clash on Saturday at the Erfurter Messehalle in Erfurt, Germany, WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz and his Australian challenger Nader Hamdan met the press.

Robert Stieglitz: “I am the champion and defending my title against all comers. It’s not so important whether my opponent is Groves or now Hamdan.
