Moreno could be allowed to defend WBA belt

By Gabriel F. Cordero

In the 90th annual WBA convention, we were informed that WBA super bantamweight world champion (in recess) Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno may have his world crown on the line on December 3 in Anaheim, California, when he faces former world champion and current IBO beltholder Vic Darchinyan. After a request by Robert Diaz of Golden Boy Promotions, which now promotes Moreno, the head of the WBA World Championships Committee, Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, is checking with the WBA lawyers about the situation. Moreno was declared “champion in recess” due to an ongoing contractual dispute with his longtime manager Dr. Roberto Grimaldo, which has prevented him from defending. Although the situation between Moreno and Grimaldo continues in the Panama civilian justice system, the WBA could sanction the fight based on the fighter’s right to work.

Trout leaves no doubt, takes apart LoPorto

Undefeated WBA junior middleweight champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (24-0, 14 KOs) scored a sixth round stoppage against #14-rated contender Frank LoPorto (15-5, 7 KOs) on Friday night at Cohen Stadium in El Paso, Texas. It looked like it would be a short night for Trout when he dropped LoPorto early in round one. LoPorto showed a world class chin if not world class boxing skills, as Trout landed almost at will. The slaughter was finally stopped by referee Rafael Ramos. Time was 2:32.

Unbeaten Brazilian middleweight star Michael Oliveira (16-0, 13 KOs) dealt an eight round beating to Xavier “X-Man” Toliver (23-8, 15 KOs). Toliver came out aggressively, but Oliveira took command from round two. Toliver was deducted a point for a head butt in round five and disqualified for hitting on the break in round eight. The result was later announced as a TKO with a time of 1:31.

Magdaleno shuts out Lucero; Gesta wins too

By Andreas Hale at ringside
Photo: Chria Farina/Top Rank

Hot prospect Diego Magdaleno (21-0) capped off an impressive 2011 with yet another mark in the win column as he soundly thumped Emmanuel Lucero (26-8-1) for ten rounds en route to an easy unanimous decision victory as he retained is NABF super featherweight title at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV. Magdaleno’s increasingly improving boxing pedigree was simply too much for the game Lucero to handle as Magdaleno repeatedly popped the jab while ripping Lucero’s torso with body shots.

Figuring that trying to outbox Magdaleno was futile, Lucero instead launched haymakers in hope that something would land and slow down the Las Vegan. A straight left hand rattled Lucero in the 5th and Magdaleno turned up the heat and applied pressure. Clearly committed to score a knockout, Magdaleno sat on his punches and had little regard for what was coming back at him. A combination sent Lucero stumbling into the ropes and prompted a count from referee Robert Byrd. Lucero attempted to psyche himself out as he barked “Come on!” to Magdeleno. Magdaleno obliged and tore into Lucero with combinations and body punches. It was a great display of guts by Lucero but in the end he found himself on the wrong side of the scorecards as judges saw it 100-89, 100-87 and 100-88. (more…)

Solomon speaks out

By Phil Doherty

It takes a lot to rile soft-spoken #1-ranked WBA welterweight title challenger Brad “King” Solomon (17-0, 7 KOs). Perhaps this comes from his country upbringing in rural Louisiana. Maybe it comes from the hard-earned wisdom gained in a 4 ½-year prison stint when he was a younger, more careless man. It could be the fact he now lives his life for his two children, son Brylon and daughter Brylie. Yet when the 28-year-old world challenger read reports leaked to Fightnews.com earlier today by his former promoter, he spoke out in a clear, fiery voice. Brad’s friends and family, including his numerous boxing associates knew something rang false with the characterization. (more…)

Angkotta seeks revenge in Mexico

By Jeff Pamungkas

#4 WBO bantamweight contender Angky Angkotta of Indonesia considers his loss to Jorge Arce on January 30, 2010 at Restaurante Arroyo in Mexico City to be controversial. “I abosorbed his strong punches, and he got exhausted in round seven, then he did the headbutt on purpose. I was injured on the temple, and the referee asked me to continue the bout, but the ring doctor insisted the referee to stop the fight,” Angkotta recalled from their first match which Arce won by technical decision. “I talked to Arce about a rematch, and he nodded. This is it!”

The Arce vs Angkotta rematch will take place in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico, on November 26 for Arce’s WBO bantamweight title. “I will knock him out this time, and the bomb will explode in Mexico,” promised Angkotta, who is nicknamed ‘Time Bomb.’ “I will bring the WBO belt home for my daughter’s (Chilla) birthday this month. I will also present it as a Christmas and New Year’s gift for my country.” (more…)

Tensions Reach A Boiling Point

By Andreas Hale

While things have been relatively civil between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez leading up to their November 12th showdown, emotions bubbled to a boiling point between Timothy Bradley and Joel Casamayor, who will face off as the co-featured attraction on Saturday night.

It all seemed to be like the routine press conference where everyone basically exchanges pleasantries, tries to prove to the media that this time they are in the best physical condition of their lives, thank God and go home. While the 40-year-old Casamayor appeared to be relatively calm as he kept it short and sweet at the podium (“I feel great. Everyone knows what I bring to the ring.”), something that Timothy Bradley said drew the ire of the former lightweight and super featherweight champion. Or maybe the sharp tongued Cuban simply felt like spicing up the mundane press conference practices. (more…)

Freddie Roach issues warning

"If Manny puts him down...I don't think he'll get up."

Fight fans would like to believe that the third meeting between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Marquez should be filled with fireworks and wall to wall action. But if you ask Freddie Roach, he could care less about pints of blood being spilled for twelve rounds. What Roach wants is for his fighter to obliterate Juan Manuel Marquez and leave him lying on the canvas in a heap. That would be the perfect exclamation point in a trilogy that has been loaded with questions.

“I believe all fights should end in a knockout,” Roach said to a group of boxing scribes on Thursday. “Manny is a compassionate guy and he let the last two guys (Mosley and Margarito) off the hook. I urge him not to be compassionate in fights because one punch can change a fight.” (more…)

Pajkic and Fury: Final words

By Dave Spencer

This Saturday November 12th two undefeated 16-0 heavyweights collide as British Champion Tyson Fury meets Canadian Champion Neven Pajkic in Manchester England for Fury’s British Commonwealth belt. Tensions for the fight have been brewing for over a year ever since Fury touched down onto Canadian soil and challenged Pajkic as he was putting the finishing touches of a Canadian title defence just north of Toronto. The prestigious Commonwealth belt that is up for grabs dates back well over 100 years and has been worn by the likes of Lennox Lewis, Trevor Berbick, Tommy Burns, Henry Cooper and Danny Williams. Both fighters hope it will help propel them to bigger and better things and had a chance to address the media one more final time earlier this week, leaving fight fans hoping that the what happens inside the ropes will be half as good as the war of words that’s been going on outside.

Solomon title shot imploding

By Boxing Bob Newman

It looks like the meteoric rise of current WBA #1 ranked welterweight Brad Solomon has come to a screeching halt. Not only that, but with the negotiations for his mandated title shot against WBA champ Vyacheslav Senchenko all but dead in the water and Solomon’s career looks to be headed nowhere fast. Matchmaker Ricardo Rizzo of Heavyweight Factory (Solomon’s promoter of record), told Fightnews exclusively this morning that “Someone has gotten in Solomon’s ear. He doesn’t want the fight (with Senchenko). He’s not answering anyone’s calls. We got him to #1 in the world and a mandatory title shot with only a 17-0 (7 KOs) record. We had him fight at the convention last year. We had him in the K.O. Drugs card in Panama. We got him on ESPN so people could see him. He’s a good fighter, but a bad person. We’re going to find out who is talking to him and we’re going to sue for interference. They (Heavyweight Factory) have put a lot of money behind this kid. He’s driving a Mercedes. Does he think it’s going to be better somewhere else? Because he was going to fight or the WBA title, the WBO removed him from their rankings, the WBC removed him, (Solomon isn’t actually in the current WBC top 15 anyway), Berto gave up the IBF belt so Randall Bailey will fight someone for that title. Where does he think he’s gonna go?” (more…)

Alexander vows to KO Roy Jones

Max Alexander understands his current place in the boxing world. Inactive for two years and without a win in his past six fights, few if any give him any chance at all of coming out on top in his December 10 showdown with the legendary Roy Jones Jr. at the Atlanta Civic Center. For that very reason, Alexander didn’t hesitate to accept this assignment, one the cruiserweight views as the opportunity of a lifetime when he squares off against the 12-time world champion in four weight classes who is destined for the Boxing Hall of Fame.

Not only is the Camden (NJ)-based fighter confident of victory, he goes as far as to guarantee when the fight will end and literally willing to put his money where his mouth is. “I have been working hard, training hard, and I will knock out Roy Jones, Jr. by the 6th round,” says Alexander (14-5-2, 2KO), who participated in Season Three of the boxing reality show ‘The Contender.’ “If I don’t KO him by 6th Rd I will forfeit my purse. Roy doesn’t stand a chance against me. I am 6’2” with a 76” reach and I have a right hand that will put Roy to sleep.”
