USS Cunningham: It’s still going to be the same Cunningham

Photo: Carlos Suarez Jr. FightImages.com

In preparation for their afternoon fights on September 8th at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, three Philadelphia fighters participated in an open media workout at the James Shuler Memorial Boxing Gym in West Philly. Leading the way was two-time world cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham, 24-4, 12 KOs, who will make his debut as a heavyweight on the September 8th card, which will be televised by WealthTV and WealthTV.com. Much attention has been paid to Cunningham’s weight since his 10-round fight with Jason Gavern, 21-10-4, 10 KOs, was announced.

Cunningham expects to fight at 208 pounds, and all eyes will be on him to see if he can make the adjustment to the heavyweight division and compete effectively against bigger opposition. Gavern should have at least a 20-pound weight advantage over Cunningham when the bell rings. (more…)

Chavez Jr., Roach Quick Quotes

By Andreas Hale
Photos: Mary Ann Owen

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: He has a style that he likes and needs to use to win. He uses movement, his jab and spacing to win. I’m not going to give him any space. I have to make him stand up and fight. The more he moves it becomes difficult for me. I have to make him fight. If you let him do what he wants at his pace, it’s going to be difficult for anybody. You have to increase the pace and make him work hard. This is the most important fight of my life.

Freddie Roach: I think Martinez and his trash talking is a way for him to motivate himself. I think he’s a little bit scared. Both he and his trainer talk a lot of trash but we’ll see if they can back it up on fight night.

Vazquez-Quintero Set for September 29th

By Felipe Leon

According to the Tijuana Boxing Commission, Saturday, September 29th has been set aside by Zanfer Promotions to stage a twelve round championship bout between champion Miguel “Titere” Vazquez (31-3, 13 KOs) and hard hitting southpaw and #1 contender Marvin “Cachorro” Quintero (25-3, 21KOs) at the Municipal Auditorium in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico.

Quintero of Tijuana, Mexico, by way of Culiacan, Sinaloa, won the right to face Vazquez by stopping Filipino Al Sabaupan in nine rounds last April. Quintero is trained by Romulo Quirarte and is gym mate and occasional chief sparring partner of WBC lightweight title holder Antonio DeMarco.

Guadalajara, Jalisco’s Vazquez last defense was in early 2012 when he defeated Ammeth Diaz via unanimous decision. In his last bout last June, Vazquez won a ten round decision over Daniel Attah.

It was mentioned that undefeated lightweight contender Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (26-0-1, 14KOs) was next in line to face Vazquez on the under card of a proposed Mexico vs. Philippines event topped off by Manny Pacquiao facing Juan Manuel Marquez for the fourth time. Since Pacquiao as of yet not announced his next partner, looks like the world-rated Gesta will be sitting on the side lines for the moment waiting for his next opponent.

Trainer Ulli Wegner, 70, hits career high point

This is a first! Since last Saturday, Coach Ulli Wegner has four world champions in his training group. Arthur Abraham’s successful bid for the WBO Super-Middleweight Championship at the o2 World Berlin, Germany, added a record winning fourth belt to the already existing three champions Cecilia Breakhus (WBC-, WBA-, and WBO- Welterweight Champion), Marco Huck (WBO Cruiserweight Champion) and Yoan Pablo Hernandez (IBF Cruiserweight Champion). All won under Wegner’s guidance

Never before has a German boxing coach been that successful at the age of 70. For Wegner, who has been in this business for 41 years, it is a real highlight in his illustrious career. But if it is up to the trainer himself, voted coach of the year nine times in a row by “BoxSport” magazine, there are still a few titles to come. “In Dominik Britsch, Robert Helenius, Eduard Gutknecht and Karo Murat I have some more potential world beaters in my group,” said Wegner.

Sturm-Geale Public Workout

With just three days to go before their big WBA/IBF middleweight unification showdown, Felix Sturm and Daniel Geale appeared in a public workout on Wednesday at the CentrO shopping mall in Oberhausen, Germany. Both fighters gave the fans a little insight into their training routine, looking relaxed and in shape.

“I haven’t been that good in seven years. There is a huge difference between a fighter with a big mouth and a true champion. And Daniel is a true champion. He proved that before and he will try to prove it again. But I’m confident in myself and I truly believe I will unify the WBA and IBF belts”, Sturm, 33, told reporters at hand after his workout. Later, he added on his Facebook page: “I feel 30 percent better than when I fought Sebastian Zbik.”

Geale, 31, took the stage shortly before the local hero but displayed lots of confidence as well. “I have to go out there and win. I have to make sure I do it convincingly, especially if it goes down to a decision. We know he’s going to be tough, but we are covering all the bases. It’s coming at a good time. Felix hasn’t performed well recently and I feel I am improving with each fight”, the Australian told the media afterwards.

WBA champ Felix Sturm and IBF kingpin Daniel Geale will collide on Saturday at the KoenigPilsener-Arena in Oberhausen.
