Cunningham-Visinia Presser Quotes

Photos: Larry Levanti/Main Events

Kathy Duva, Main Events’ CEO: This is our 21st show in the series which will end with its 22nd show on NBCSN on November 8. It has been the greatest privilege of my life putting on a series like this. We got to build stars. We started building stars from the very beginning. It is fitting that it is going to end on the same day that Sergey Kovalev is fighting in the biggest fight of the year. Steve was already a world champion but we got the opportunity to introduce him to the United States because he fought mainly overseas. This is the last show I am going to be at for this series. I am not going to be able to attend the last fight of the series because I will be at the Kovalev fight. It feels like high school graduation. It is bitter sweet and sad, but I am also excited about what is going to come ahead. I am also very proud of everyone who has worked on this series. This fight is no doubt going to live up to expectations. In his last fight, Steve put on the best fight of the series. It was about as perfect as you can get. (more…)

Hall: I’m a man, Caballero’s a boy

Older by 10 years and with three world title fights under his belt, former IBF bantamweight champion Stuart Hall is unequivocal about his clash with unbeaten American Randy Caballero (21-0, 13 KOs) for the vacant title in Monte Carlo next weekend. “I’m a man, he’s a boy. A man beats a boy every time,” proclaimed Hall, who has been away from home for eight weeks making his young daughter cry. “I blame Caballero – and he’s going to pay,” said Hall.

He respects what Caballero (24) has to offer, but says that he doesn’t see anything to really concern him. As for being a betting underdog, he laughs it off: “That’s been the case most of my career, it means nothing. When I fought Vusi Malinga for the title he was also the favorite. It’s fair play . . . more money for me to win.” (more…)

By Gabriel F Cordero

Four-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez, 41, expects to decide whether or not to continue his career in boxing in the coming months. “I’m starting to train to see how I feel physically,” said Marquez. “Between October and December I hope to solve my future and if I feel good in January, I’ll be taking a decision on my future.” Marquez last fought on May 17, when he beat Mike Alvarado by unanimous decision over twelve rounds. Sources close to Marquez indicate that his physical situation is the most important factor and another fight or two has been discussed, maybe even a farewell fight in Mexico.

Welliver: I’ll shatter Browne’s world title dream

Heavyweight Chauncy Welliver (55-8-2, 22 KOs) says he’ll shatter the hopes of Lucas Browne (21-0, 18 KOs) boxing for a world title and re-establish himself on the global stage when they meet next month. The New Zealand-based American, 31, was himself once ranked in the WBC’s top five ranked heavyweights and feels the November 12 fight is a chance to kick start his title hopes. If experience counts for anything, Welliver will be at a huge advantage. The “Hillyard Hammer” has been a professional for over 13 years and has had 68 fights, while unbeaten Browne has been in just 21 paid bouts.

“This is the perfect fight for me to get my career back on track. Lucas Browne is on a roll but I’m going to derail his train,” Welliver said. “I think Lucas Browne is a very good prospect, but he’s just that, a prospect. I think my experience will be too much. I was injured my last fight, but I’m fully healthy now and will win this fight. I think style wise, you’ll see fireworks. He’s stronger, but I believe I’m more durable. The early rounds will dictate how this fight goes so I’ve got to set a fast pace. I’ll take him into the later rounds and see if he sinks or swims. I’m going to use my boxing skills to confuse him and out point him and get my name back up the top of the heavyweight ratings. (more…)

Katsidis: I’ll prove I have a lot more to give

Former two-time WBO interim lightweight champion Michael Katsidis says he’ll prove he can still be a force in the lightweight division when he takes on Tommy Coyle for the IBF International title at the Ice Arena in Hull on October 25. The Australian secured a pair of wins earlier in the year in his hometown of Queensland, a third round stoppage in March before a shutout twelve round win over old World title foe Graham Earl in July. The 34-year-old has left no stone unturned in his preparations for Coyle, landing in the UK in September and teaming up with former British champion Maurice Core in Manchester. ‘The Great’ has faced questions over how much he has left in the tank but he insists he’ll answer the critics in style.

Former WBO champ Barrios sentenced to prison

By Gabriel F Cordero

Former WBO super featherweight world champion Jorge “La Hiena” Barrios of Argentina has been sentenced to three years and seven months in prison for hit-and-run automobile accident in 2010 that caused the death of a young pregnant woman. As reported by the Argentinian newspaper Olé, the Court of Appeals has ordered the penalty enforcement, so Barrios will be taken into custody in the coming days. He will also be ineligible to drive for the next seven years. Barrios was driving his truck using his cell phone when he crashed into another vehicle killing 20-year-old Yamila Gonzalez, who was six months pregnant.

Undefeated WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) and WBC interim champion Marco Antonio “El Veneno” Rubio (59-6-1, 51 KOs) of Coahuila, Torreon, Mexico are two days away from their showdown taking place this Saturday at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California live on HBO World Championship Boxing.

“This is my first fight in LA, my first fight in California in a very famous stadium,” Golovkin told Fightnews.com “Right now Rubio is the best name for me so far, he is the biggest test for me. He is a very good fighter, he’s a champion, a tough Mexican, a smart boxer and fighter with a lot of fights,” Golovkin said about Rubio.

“The time is here we are fighting the best middleweight pound for pound,” Rubio told us. “We have seen him fight, we still haven’t seen any flaws. We have experience, we’ll look to break him down and find those flaws in the ring.” (more…)

Overeem grateful for quick return against Struve

No sooner had Alistair Overeem lost to Ben Rothwell in early September did the speculation about his future begin.

For the third time in four outings, the Dutch heavyweight was on the wrong side of a knockout finish, leaving him with a 2-3 mark through his first five appearances in the Octagon. Though he hasn’t had the impact many anticipated following his high-profile move to the UFC and first-round destruction of Brock Lesnar at UFC 141, the organization quickly silenced any chatter about his future by making it clear they would not be releasing the former Strikeforce champion . . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Unbeaten heavyweight contender Joseph Parker (11-0, 9 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Sherman “Tank” Williams (36-14-2, 19 KOs) on Thursday night at the Trusts Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand. The 22-year-old Parker outboxed and outpunched the 42-year-old Williams, but was unable to get an early stoppage. The “Tank” has been stopped only once in his 52 fight career (15 years ago by Robert Davis). Scores were 100-90, 100-90, 97-94. With the victory, Parker successfully defended his WBA PABA and WBO Oriental belts.

In a “Corporate Rules” heavyweight bout, 310lb David “Brown Buttabean” Letele (4-3) stopped 303lb John Lomu (2-1) in round two.

In a clash for the NZNBF light heavyweight title Reece “Lightning” Papuni (7-0, 5 KOs) scored a fourth round KO over previously unbeaten Sam “The Terror” Rapira (8-1, 7 KOs). Rapira was down once in round three and twice in round four. (more…)

Hardy defeats Hoy in NYC

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside
Photos: DiBella Entertainment

In front of a standing-room only crowd at BB Kings, New York’s Heather Hardy put in a performance to remember in front of her fans, taking on Crystal Hoy for the vacant WBC International Junior Featherweight Championship. Hardy (11-0, 2 KOs) showed why she is still unbeaten in breaking down Hoy (5-7-4, 2 KOs) over 10 grueling rounds, utilizing her left jab to open up room to land a series of body combinations that slowed down Hoy throughout the fight. The first round saw a cagey Hardy begin to press the round, using her reach to stay away from harm and frustrate Hoy. The second round saw Hardy and Hoy trade on the inside bringing the crowd alive and giving Hardy an extra edge in the fight. Hoy began using her smaller reach to her advantage in round 3, getting inside and unloading a series of good body shots that had Hardy think twice before exchanging back. Hoy managed to keep up the tempo going into the fourth round, delivering arguably her best round of the night by cleanly coming in and out to deliver short but crisp hooks to the body.

Hardy resumed business as usual in the fifth round, dodging and weaving with grace away from Hoy’s jabs and using the jab to control the pace and the ring. On the advice of her corner, Hardy started to get the uppercut going with great success, managing to counter and close down Hoy every time she tried to get any punches off inside. Round 8 saw good toe to toe action with both fighters trading blows and visible swelling beginning to appear underneath the eyes of both fighters. After 10 hard fought rounds, the judges scored the fight 95-95, 100-90 and 99-91 to Heather Hardy. This was also the first time Hardy has gone 10 rounds. (more…)

World Boxing Association (WBA) featherweight champions Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire and Nicholas “The Axe Man” Walters collide this Saturday in a WBA featherweight title unification showdown at a sold-out StubHub! Center in Carson, Calif. The fight will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing, beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The telecast will also feature WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin defending his titles against World Boxing Council (WBC) interim middleweight champion Marco Antonio “El Veneno” Rubio. Golovkin vs. Rubio and its undercard are presented by K2 Promotions and GGG Promotions, in association with Promociones Del Pueblo.

Nonito Donaire: “Confident fighters are dangerous fighters. I know that. But there other fighters who said before a fight they were stronger than me, hit harder, were going to knock me out. Walters is a good champion but really how many quality fights has he been in compared to where I have been in my career? We both have speed, we both have power. It’s an explosive fight. This is going to end in a knockout. I will go into the ring and do my best.”

Nicholas Walters: “Donaire is a very good champion. We both have speed and power. The difference is intelligence. I was born to fight. The bigger the fight the better. If Donaire isn’t right, he’s going to get knocked out. Maybe five rounds, maybe less. Not sure yet. But you know what? Donaire stepped up and took this fight. He didn’t have to. For that, I respect him for getting in the ring with me.” photos

Brunson, who burst on to the scene in 2005 and broke Edwin Valero’s world record with 19 consecutive first round knockouts to start his career (since broken by Ali Raymi), is looking to restart his career. “It is going to be a good fight. I am well prepared. This is the best training camp I have ever had,” said Brunson. “I do not know much about Perez. I heard he is a rugged guy and he comes to fight.”

Perez himself is on a roll as he has won six of his last seven bouts which includes wins over Dante Moore (8-0-2), Jarmar Freeman (9-1-2) and his last bout when he defeated Marcus Willis (13-3-2).

Brunson gained a lot of fanfare all over the world as he was amassing all of those knockout victories, three of which came in New Zealand. “I am past that record. This is a rebirth and fans will see a new Tyrone Brunson. I consider this fight my second pro debut.” (more…)

Macklin: most meaningful fight for me since Gennady Golovkin

Photo: Russell Pritchard

Matthew Macklin says defeat is not an option in his WBC Middleweight eliminator clash with WBC International champion Jorge Sebastian Heiland at The 3Arena in Dublin on November 15, live on Sky Sports.

Macklin is on the hunt for a World title shot in 2015 and faces the Argentine in the first step after he dusted off the cobwebs in Germany a fortnight ago with his first action since December. Miguel Cotto holds the WBC title and the 32 year old is gunning for a showdown with the Puerto Rican legend if he can see off Heiland, but Macklin is aware that the visitor poses a real threat to his aspirations.

“It’s a huge opportunity for him, he’ll come over here and see me as someone who has been in the top five or ten in the world over the last five or six years,” said Macklin. “Beating me catapults him into the mix and he’ll probably get a World title shot, so for me it’s an eliminator and the most meaningful fight for me since Gennady Golovkin.

Local favorite Pablo “El Sepulturero” Munguia (19-5, 11 KOs) challenges Edgar Ortega (15-1, 10 KO) of Torreon, Coahuila de Zaragoza, Mexico for his WBO Latino interim welterweight title. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds with Telemundo airing the bout. The Jose Cuervo Salon, Polanco, Distrito Federal, Mexico will host. In Munguia’s first and only time headlining on Telemundo, he upset former world title challenger Antonio Pitalua in 2012. Munguia’s objective will be to the same with Ortega but he faces a much younger fighter this time around. Munguia at 35 will have to keep pace with the 23-year-old Ortega. Munguia isn’t concerned with the age difference and is confident that experience with beat youth on Friday.
