Kell Brook hosts press conference in Sheffield ahead of IBF title defence against Kevin Bizier

By James Slater
Photos: Scott J. Raven

Today in his hometown on Sheffield, at The football ground of Sheffield United, IBF welterweight king Kell Brook engaged in a press conference ahead of his next fight, a mandatory defence of his title against Canada’s Kevin Bizier on March 26th.

The fight will take place at The Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, and promoter Eddie Hearn told the gathered media today how he is looking forward to another great Kell Brook night. Hearn began by jokingly saying there was a sweep, which would contest who would utter a certain fighter’s name first:

“I’ll win it for you – Amir Khan!” Hearn said, and Khan’s name was indeed mentioned a lot today, what with this on/off/on/off British super-fight being one both Brook and Hearn badly want. (more…)

Braehmer-Oosthuizen collide on March 12

WBA light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (47-2, 35 KOs) will climb back into the ring on March 12, defending his title against South African Thomas Oosthuizen (25-0-2, 14 KOs) at the Jahnsportforum in Neubrandenburg, Germany. Originally, the Braehmer-Oosthuizen was scheduled for Monaco last November, but Braehmer suffered a hand injury while training and had to postpone. “I am delighted that my injury is completely healed and we now can do the bout,” says Braehmer, who is currently preparing for the fight in his hometown of Schwerin. “His height doesn’t bother me. I have always done well against taller opponents. Enzo Maccarinelli was a similar size and I stopped him inside the distance. Regardless of his size, whether by KO or points – I will be sending the South African home empty-handed.”

Oosthuizen stated, “It is great news that the fight is going ahead. Let’s hope Braehmer doesn’t come up with another excuse not to fight me! I’m definitely going to cash in on my skill, speed, youth, power and agility to win the fight. I’ll put him away for sure. You’ll hear nothing from the scorecards.”

Campas-Bonsante Full Report

Story and photos by Ricardo Ibarra

The legendary career of former Jr. middleweight world champion Luis Ramon “Yori Boy” Campas finally came to an end on Saturday night at the Butte Civic Center in Butte, Montana, and although the brawler from Navajoa, Sonora, Mexico will go out with a win on his record, it was not the way his team envisioned his final fight as a professional fighter would end. After a fast-paced battle that saw both men have their moments, Minnesota’s Anthony Bonsante was disqualified in the sixth round for committing a foul against Campas that caused an injury to his knee, leaving him unable to continue.

Browne: I Want Wilder, Haye and Martin

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBA #3 heavyweight contender Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne (23-0, 20 KOs) comments on the recent knockout victories of WBC champion Deontay Wilder against Artur Spzilka and former WBA champion David Haye against Mark de Mori. Browne also mentions new IBF champion Charles Martin. Any of the three could be a future opponent for “Big Daddy” if he dethrones WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev on March 5 in Grozny, Russia.

“Wilder was his usual self,” said Browne. “Not all that impressive and showing that he has a lot to learn about boxing – especially after he made himself fall to the ground after swinging a punch too hard.

“Haye was impressive but didn’t really have to do much against an out of shape and scared looking de Mori.

“Martin was fighting well, but I had neither of them winning at the time of Glazkov’s injury and would’ve liked to have seen some more rounds.

“I’d love to fight and unify against all of them.”

Joshua rejects Parker challenge

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Dean Lonergan of Duco Events who promote WBO #3, IBF #7, WBC #7, WBA #11 heavyweight Joseph Parker issued a challenge to the management of WBC #2, WBA #12, IBF #5, WBO #2 Anthony Joshua, but Lonergan says the former Olympic champion wants no piece of the fast-fisted Kiwi. “We desperately want to fight Joshua, we’ve put challenges to him,” Lonergan said. “I was in England two months ago, I was trying to get a meeting through my boxing connections who know the Hearn camp intimately. Eddie Hearn (Joshua’s promoter) turned me down flat.”

Joshua extended his record to 15-0, 15 KOs, with a seventh-round stoppage of fellow Brit Dillian Whyte last month, but only after being rocked in the second round. Parker (18-0, 16 KOs) scored an eight round stoppage of American Jason Bergman (25-12-2, 16 KOs) in Samoa on Saturday.

Jackson talks about Kovalev training methods

Former world champion John David Jackson, trainer of WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev, says his man has a unique way of getting prepared for Saturday’s HBO-televised rematch with Jean Pascal in Montreal. “He has a great work ethic,” said Jackson during last week’s media day. “He kind of choreographs his fights. It’s funny how he does it. It works for him. I let him do what he wants to do. It makes him feel comfortable. He has a routine where he tries to mimic the fight how [he thinks] it’s gonna go about [sic].”

“We put a game-plan together, but he swears up and down there’s no game-plan. We devise a strategy that works for him…his physical training and conditioning prior to coming to the gym enables him to go the rounds that he goes and the pace that he sets.”

Campas wins retirement fight by DQ

By Ricardo Ibarra

In a disappointing end to what was turning out to be a great fight, Luis Ramon “Yori Boy” Campas (106-17-3, 81 KOs) claimed a win in his retirement fight on Saturday night at the Civic Center in Butte, Montana when Anthony Bonsante (34-12-3, 18 KOs) was disqualified in the sixth round. For the first four rounds, the two engaged in a back and forth brawl with many shifts in momentum. In the fifth round, though, Campas began to take over with an unrelenting body attack, dropping Bonsante in the round with a hard left hook to the ribs. In the sixth, an increasingly frustrated Bonsante lifted Campas up on his shoulders and threw him down hard, causing Campas to land awkwardly on his knee, causing an injury. Campas could no longer continue due to the injury.

WBA super-featherweight champion Takashi Uchiyama was named Boxer of the Year by the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC) in association with Sports Writers Club on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.

Technique: WBC bantam titlist Shinsuke Yamanaka who registered ten consecutive defenses by outscoring Ansermo Moreno

Valuable Victory: WBA flyweight ruler Kazuto Ioka who stopped ex-champ Juan Carlos Reveco in a rematch on New Year Eve

Fighting Spirit: IBF junior flyweight kingpin Akira Yaegashi who acquired his third belt by dethroning Javier Mendoza this December, and former WBC 130-pound champ Takashi Miura who displayed such a gallant give-and-take showing against Francisco Vargas in Las Vegas that the extravaganza was elected Fight of the Year by many medias.

Garcia: I knew I would win, Guerrero: I want a rematch

By Miguel Maravilla

Danny Garcia: “It was what I expected. I knew I would win at least eight or nine rounds. I knew there would be some headbutts in there. He headbutted me so much on my forehead. I was throwing my combinations, using my legs like my dad told me to do. I knew he was going to come to fight. He’s a rugged warrior. I’m back where I belong. I am now a two-division world champion. I’m excited. Guerrero is tough. No one has ever stopped him. He came to fight, he was in shape. I’m taking nothing away from him. I’m so happy. I am glad it went the way it went. I just want to take some time off, let my body heal and take one day at a time.”

Robert Guerrero: “I want a rematch and that’s it. Not one person out there thought Danny won, but his team. I pressured him, I nailed him, busted his body up. I out-jabbed him. I thought I won the fight. The crowd thought I won the fight. It was a great fight. I am happy I’m healthy. I will be back. I thought I won the fight and I definitely want a rematch. The doubters don’t bother me. I showed how strong I am and what I could do. That’s why I come out and fight the way I do. It’s all for the fans. That’s why they bring me back. They love it and they enjoy it. They were entertained tonight. They thought I won the fight, but that’s the way the ball went.”

Garcia beats Guerrero to win WBC welterweight title

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

In the main event on the inaugural broadcast of PBC on FOX, from Staples Center in Los Angeles, former unified junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, (32-0, 18 KOs), captured the vacant WBC welterweight title with a unanimous decision over former four-division champion Robert Guerrero, (33-4-1, 18 KOs). All three judges scored the bout 116-112.

Garcia, who came into the fight as a 10-1 favorite, looked anything but early on as Guerrero controlled the action with his jab and higher workrate despite occasional lead left hands from Garcia that landed clean on the advancing Guerrero. However, from about the fourth round on, Garcia’s accuracy became the story of the fight, as Guerrero continued to throw more punches but was not landing cleanly, while Garcia rocked Guerrero three or four times each round with crisp left and right hooks or the occasional right uppercut. Guerrero closed strong in the final round as the two fighters went toe to toe over the last thirty seconds of the fight, but it was too little too late for Guerrero, who lost for the third time in his last five bouts.

Vasquez, Breazeale victorious in LA

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

In the welterweight co-main event at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Sammy “The Who Can Mexican” Vasquez (21-0, 15 KOs) of Pittsburgh scored a sixth round stoppage over East L.A.’s Aron Martinez (20-5-1, 4 KOs). From the opening bell Vasquez outworked Martinez, who could not get off in chasing the elusive southpaw. To everyone’s surprise, the normally durable Martinez did not come out for round seven. His corner later cited an elbow injury.

In a disappointing end to a good heavyweight fight, Amir “Hardcore” Mansour, (22-2-1, 16 KOs) was unable to continue after round five, much to the relief of heavyweight prospect and former U.S. Olympian Dominic Breazeale, (17-0, 15 KOs), who escaped with the TKO victory, officially at 3:00 of round five. Breazeale, a notoriously slow starter, lived up to his reputation, as Mansour attacked early and often while Breazeale warmed up his engine. Mansour focused early on Breazeale’s soft midsection, which caused Breazeale to drop his hands and opened the door for big left and right hooks to the head by Mansour.

Mansour knocked Breazeale down with a right hook to the top of the head early in round three, but he was too wild in his followup attack and failed to land clean punches, allowing his dazed opponent to recover. At the same time Breazeale started to connect more and more with long, strafing left and right hands that landed cleanly on the shorter Mansour. Both fighters traded leather the rest of the way, but Mansour’s punches seemed to lose a little steam while Breazale’s heavier hands continued to land cleanly. Suddenly, between rounds five and six the referee waved the fight over, indicating that Mansour was unable to continue, resulting in the victory for Breazeale. Shortly afterwards it was reported that Mansour had suffered a broken jaw and that was what prompted the end of the fight. (more…)

Damon Reed rips away Aaron Green’s “0”

Heavyweight “Dangerous” Damon Reed of Topeka, KS, who challenged for the WBO world title in 1998, recorded perhaps the biggest win of his long career last night at the Grand Casino in Hinckley, MN. The 44-year-old Reed (48-18, 32 KOs) was brought as an opponent for previously undefeated 33-year-old prospect and local favorite Aaron Green, now 16-1, 14 KOs.

From the opening bell, it was clear that Green was going to have to earn a victory. Reed used good movement and ring generalship to frustrate Green and keep him off balance throughout the first round. Green caught up with Reed in the second round breaking his rib and forcing him to rely on his veteran skills and take a knee for an 8-count to regain his composure. Reed finished the round and then proceeded to dominate the following four rounds. Reed returned the favor and sent Green to the canvas in the fifth en route to a majority decision.

Hekkie Budler now a super champion

By Ron Jackson

Hekkie Budler who holds the WBA mini flyweight and IBO minimumweight belts has now been elevated to the WBA mini flyweight “super” champion as from January 20. Budler who has a record of 29 wins with 9 inside the distance and 1 loss is South Africa’s first “super” world champion.

Even though Siphiwe Vetyeka beat WBA “super” featherweight champion Chris John on December 6 2013 he evidently was not elevated to “super” champion status by the WBA.

Budler, 27, will make the first defence of his WBA “super” mini flyweight belt and the tenth defence of his IBO minimumweight belt when he faces Nicaragua’s Byron Rojas, 25, the tenth ranked contender who has a record of 16-2-3-1nc; 8 on Rodney Berman’s Golden Gloves tournament at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on March 19.

Miller (16-0-1, 14 KOs), who went past the sixth round for the first time in his career, also stated “I had him out in the first round, but I threw my shoulder out throwing a left hook. I was looking for the knockout so bad he started catching me with some shots. So then I decided to box a little bit and that’s what I did until the knockout came. I’m glad it went seven rounds. It taught me to go to Plan B. I can box beautifully when I want and I showed some of that tonight. It was good experience. My power was there; my wind was good.

Brandon Rios planning to fight again

Former world champion “Bam Bam” Brandon Rios says he’s planning to return to the ring. Rios announced his retirement following a KO loss to Timothy Bradley last November, but he announced tonight on Facebook that he’s had a change of heart.

After I had time to think about it, I want to end my love for this sport in boxing the way I started, fighting strong and with everything I had. I didn’t train right last time and was not able to bring my best, letting myself and my fans down. Now I’m back at the gym getting in shape, before I even do training camp, with a renewed passion for my sport and fans. Strong basics and some new twists to up my game and when it’s time to end on my terms of hard work and victorious.
