Abril-Mathews rescheduled for April 18

Lightweight contender Derry Mathews’ world title shot against WBA champion Richard Abril has been rescheduled for April 18 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. Mathews was originally slated to face Abril on March 6, but Abril was forced to withdraw last week after being diagnosed with a viral infection and unable to train. Mathews will still fight on March 6 in a tuneup fight on the same venue.

“After a nightmare few days when Abril withdrew I’m delighted that he kept to his word and is still coming to Liverpool and defending his title against me. My promoter Frank Warren and management team have worked hard behind the scenes to keep my world title dream alive and I’m really grateful,” said Mathews. “First I’ll fight on March 6th at the Echo Arena, the date originally scheduled for my title challenge and which I have focused and trained hard for and I’ll use it to sharpen up against Abril. Then on April 18th it’s the big one against Abril. Like I said before, this is the culmination of my career and the moment I have been waiting for. I will be fitter, sharper, stronger and hungrier than ever before to make sure I win the WBA World title in front of my home crowd.”

Shiming-Ruenroeng backstory

Two-time Olympic gold medalist and Chinese icon Zou Shiming’s world title challenge against undefeated International Boxing Federation (IBF) flyweight world champion Amnat Ruenroeng on March 7 in the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Resort in Macao, China, is shaping up as an intriguing affair.

They met three times as amateurs, with Ruenroeng winning their first battle in 2007. Zou won the next two times they fought. As pros, Shiming is 6-0 with 1 KO and Ruenroeng is 14-0 with 5 KOs. Ruenroeng’s stock went way up when he defeated previously unbeaten and highly regarded two-division world champion Kazuto Ioka in Ioka’s hometown, no less. Can he do the same in Shiming’s backyard?

WBO #1 rated Shiming is currently preparing for the fight with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California. The world championship fight will be televised via same-day delay on HBO2.

WBO #12 Zac Dunn returns March 6

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO #12 super middleweight Zac Dunn (16-0, 14 KO’s) will be in action against Colombian Belbi Berrocal (14-2, 14 KO’s) over twelve rounds in an IBO title eliminator at the Royal Exhibition Building Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on March 6. “Zac Dunn has looked sensational in sparring sessions” said promoter Barry Michael who is a former world IBF 130 pound champion. “New Zealand light heavyweight Robert Berridge has been working with Zac. I’m confident he will defeat Berrocal who has an excellent record with all his 14 victories coming by KO. Dunn will be chasing a world title opportunity against the WBO champion Arthur Abraham after he wins the IBO title. Zac Dunn is the best super middleweight in Australia and that includes former WBC champion Sakio Bika who is based in Australia. Respected New York boxing agent Don Majeski is now working with us so I’m confident Zac will get opportunities. 2015 will be a big year for Zac Dunn.”

In what would ultimately be his last bout at middleweight, undefeated Sean Strickland took home a split decision win over Luke Barnatt by avoiding the brawl and sticking behind his jab. The German crowd at UFC Fight Night: Munoz vs. Mousasi saw a strategic Strickland land leg kicks early and often, which evolved into Strickland sticking and moving behind his quick left lead . . . click here for more

Martin Murray: This is going to be a war

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth,” ring legend Mike Tyson once famously said. Promoter Rodney Berman says his fighter Martin Murray is planning to go to war with WBA/WBC interim middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin when they square off at the Salle des Étoiles concert hall in Monte-Carlo on Saturday. Murray will enter as a 30:1 underdog to the champion, who has recorded 18 straight knockouts.

“This is going to be a war and I’m willing to do anything it takes to become world champion,” Murray is quoted as saying. Berman believes that like with Tyson before, Golovkin’s opponents are psyched-out by GGG’s fearsome reputation long before they start trading punches, but he claims Murray has exhibited none of the anxiety so many of Golovkin’s other challengers have.

Promoter Sal Musumeci of Final Forum Boxing presented “Championship Title Boxing” on Saturday in front of a packed house at Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY. Two vacant titles were won with the possibility of big things for the victors plus the headliners were televised live on the CBS Sports Network.

After New York heavyweight Derric Rossy’s win over previously unbeaten Akhror Muralimov, Musumeci said, “Let’s have a real American champion. He’s (Rossy) fought ten times more top ten fighters than (WBC heavyweight champion Deontay) Wilder. Tell Wilder to defend his title like a man, against Rossy. Let’s do it!” An exuberant Musumeci added that he also wants Klitschko to fight Rossy but that it did not matter who would be first: “Whoever wants it,” declared Musumeci.

Rossy, who was a bit more humble than his promoter, talked with FightNews about the performance of his opponent and his self. “I didn’t think he would cut the ring off as good as he did. He showed good movement and that’s when I knew I had to step it up, move around and throw more jabs. The kid has power. He was strong.” (more…)

Xcite Fight Promotions are delighted to announce the signing of former European middleweight champion Kerry Hope (20-7, 1 KO). Hope recently relocated to Brisbane and is under the tutelage of Gareth Williams. “Firstly, I’m very happy to have signed with Xcite Fight Promotions. I am looking forward to the next chapter in my career. I’d like a couple of fights to just shake off the rust and then move onto fights that can be easily made, such as Les Sherrington, Gunnar Jackson and Jarrod Fletcher. Of course my aim has to be the best middleweights in Australia, Daniel Geale and Sam Soliman, but realistically they are a few fights away.”

The 33 year old southpaw caused a major boilover in 2012 when he outpointed Grzegorz Proksa for the European crown. “That fight shows what I’m capable of with the right preparation and that I’m not fazed at all by taking big fights,” said Hope. (more…)

Rose camp not happy with referee’s quick stoppage

“He didn’t give me a chance but I feel he gave Jones a chance. I buzzed him and I had him going worse than he had me,” former world title challenger Brian Rose told Sky Sports after his fight with Carson Jones was abruptly stopped by referee Ian John-Lewis in round one on Saturday night. “I’m so annoyed at the referee’s decision, he stood in here 15 minutes before saying he’d give us both a chance if we were hurt. He didn’t give me a chance. I might have been hurt, I felt a buzz but I knew exactly where I was and I was about to start firing my shots back. That’s the way I fight, I cover up and let my opponents let their shots go. The referee should know that. I’m the sort of fighter who gets hit, covers up, and takes it on the gloves…that’s how I fight, he’s an experienced referee, he should know that. I hold my hands up, I was hurt, but so was he. I don’t think it should have been stopped. He caught me and I felt a buzz but Demetrious Andrade hit me 50 times like that. I demand a rematch. I want something done. He gave him a chance, why not give me a chance?”

Rose’s trainer Bobby Rimmer told Sky, “It’s the most ridiculous stoppage. He was hurt but when Ian John-Lewis grabbed him I thought ‘what’s he doing?’ I’m still flabbergasted. It’s terrible what’s happened. It’s not right.”

Flanagan wins by DQ in WBO eliminator

In a WBO lightweight title eliminator, WBO #7 rated Terry Flanagan (28-0, 10 KOs) won by tenth round disqualification against WBO #5 and WBO Euro champion Stephen Ormond (17-2, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall, in Wolverhampton, England. Flanagan frustrated Ormond with his nifty boxing tactics. Ormond tried to up the aggression, but was deducted a point for a headbutt in round nine and DQ’d after another headclash in round ten. Flanagan will face the winner of another WBO eliminator between #1 Juan Diaz and #2 Takahiro Ao for what is expected to be the vacant WBO belt after current champion Terence Crawford moves up in weight.

Middleweight Tommy Langford (12-0, 3 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Wayne Reed (11-10, 5 KOs). Langford dropped Wayne Reed twice in the fourth round, but Reed was up at the count of eight on both knockdowns, and in the next round Langford went for a ruthless finish. Time was 2:31. “It was an exciting fight and a great finish. Although I did get caught in there a bit, and that doesn’t usually happen to me, I showed some good skills and plenty of heart of firepower. I was especially pleased with my body punching and mixing up with head shots. He was a very tough and game kid and I’m very happy with the performance, but there is still plenty to work on.” (more…)

Stunner: Carson Jones scores TKO1 over Brian Rose

Okalahoma junior middleweight Carson Jones (37-10-3, 27 KOs) scored a shock first round TKO over former world title challenger Brian Rose (26-3-1, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, England. Currently unrated after losing badly in a title shot against WBO titleholder Demetrius Andrade last June, Rose was staggered by Jones in round one and the bout was very quickly waved off by referee Ian John-Lewis. Time was 2:27. Jones wins the vacant WBC International super welterweight title. The Rose camp was furious about the stoppage and wants a rematch.

Predictable result in the fight between unbeaten lightweight Scotty Cardle (17-0, 5 KOs) and Yordan Vasilev (16-40-2, 4 KOs). Cardle needed just 36 seconds to get the KO win.

Middleweight Tom Doran (14-0, 4 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Cello Renda (27-11-2, 12 KOs) in the final of Prizefighter Middleweights III. Time was 1:16. Both fighters were considered long shots. Doran wins the £32,000 Prizefighter winner’s check + a £2,000 bonus for the KO.
