World Champion Orlando Salido in Miami

The two-time world champion Orlando “Siri” Salido is in Miami this weekend to serve as studio guest commentator for this Saturday night fights that will be televised BeInSports Espanol from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Salido is a candidate for the fighter of the year, because of his win over Vasyl Lomancheko in San Antonio last March and for the fight of year type battle he had with Terdsak Kokietgym last August in Tijuana when he captured the WBO super featherweight belt.

Salido is looking to return to the ring in March of 2015 for his first world title defense of the WBO belt. Some of his possible challengers include Rocky Martinez, Andrey Klimov and Diego Magdaleno among others. “I never pick my opponents, whoever is next is next. I am just looking to getting back in the ring as soon as I can in 2015,” said Salido.

BeInSports Espanol will be on the air at 11:00 p.m. East/8 p.m. (Pacific) with fights featuring Francisco “Gallo” Estrada and Jackie Nava from Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico.

Abel Trujillo: Time to Make His Move

Abel Trujillo isn’t worried about getting into a fight this weekend. That wasn’t always the case, as he’s already seen fights with Myles Jury, Bobby Green, Francisco Trevino and Ross Pearson fall by the wayside in 2014. But if you ask him if he’s got his fingers crossed that Tony Ferguson is standing in the Octagon with him on Saturday night in Las Vegas, he’s pretty sure that will be the case . . . click here for more

Klitschko-Briggs next if Klitschko-Jennings don’t reach agreement

briggs-klitschko-possible300
Wladimir Klitschko’s manager Bernd Bönte confirmed that if an agreement cannot be reached by all parties involved for a fight between unified heavyweight champion of the world Wladimir Klitschko and world ranked Bryant Jennings, that it would be the last American heavyweight world champion Shannon Briggs who would be given the opportunity. The site of the next fight for Klitschko is said to be New York City, which happens to be where Briggs was born and raised.

Upon hearing the news Briggs stated the following:

“It makes all the sense in the world for Klitschko to fight me in New York next. From an economical business standpoint it’s a no brainer. I was born and raised in New York and the venue will be packed with my supporters. It seems like everywhere I go my ‘Let’s go champ’ is chanted. I’m the most colorful fighter since Muhammad Ali. Wlad you said you want what the people want. The numbers don’t lie, as you saw the German media giant BILD had a resounding 72% wanting Briggs-Klitschko to fight next. Make it happen Wlad. LET’S GO CHAMP!!!!”

Maxi Hughes: Martin Ward has fast hands, shows a bit of power, but he is a bit too loose

Maxi Hughes says he can rip up the script against Martin J. Ward and land a shot at the British Super Featherweight title when the pair meet in an eliminator clash on Saturday night at York Hall, Bethnal Green, live on Sky Sports.

The Rossington man faces the Essex talent as the underdog in east London, but with just one loss on his record – a ten-round points tussle with Scotty Cardle in April 2013 – and over 30 rounds more than Ward in the paid ranks, the 24 year old is convinced he has the tools to defeat the former Team GB man.

“I have seen pretty much every one of his fights just from watching Sky Sports,” said Hughes. “Since I knew I was fighting him I have had a little look, I know how he boxes. He is a good fighter but he hasn’t had a proper step up as of yet. He hasn’t done ten rounds until now and he has had everything his own way.”

Prizefighter Lightweights III Quarter-Final Draw

Danny Connor and Michael Devine will rematch in the quarter-finals of the Prizefighter Lightweights III on Saturday night at York Hall, Bethnal Green on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports. Connor and Devine met in the same venue in September only for their ten-rounder to be halted prematurely when a clash of heads left Connor with a cut that he couldn’t continue to box with. Both men expressed their desire to meet in Matchroom Sport’s eight-man, one night tournament this weekend and their wish was granted as their names were pulled out of the hat live on Sky Sports News by Johnny Nelson and Adam Smith.

They clash in the second quarter-final with the winner then facing either Craig Whyatt or Lee Martin, who kick off the action.

Pre-tournament favourites Gary Buckland and Stephen Foster Jnr could meet in the second semi-final, with Foster taking on Irishman Jono Carroll in the third quarter-final and Prizefighter Super Featherweight champion Buckland facing big-punching Floyd Moore in the fourth quarter-final.

The draw:
Quarter-final 1: Craig Whyatt vs. Lee Martin
Quarter-final 2: Michael Devine vs. Danny Connor
Quarter-final 3: Stephen Foster Jr. vs. Jono Carroll
Quarter-final 4: Gary Buckland vs. Floyd Moore

Kovalev just wants to buy a house

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Not every boxing champion dreams about a new Bugatti or a villa in St. Tropez. Some, like Sergey Kovalev (26-0, 23 KO), one of the hottest fighters in 2014, just wants to put a down payment on his American Dream home. “Krusher” Kovalev, WBO, IBF and WBA world light heavyweight champion, spoke about his dreams with leading Russian news agency, ITAR-TASS.

“On November 9, WBO world champion Sergey Kovalev beat unanimously American Bernard Hopkins winning two more championships belts,” writes TASS correspondent Igor Lazorin, talking to “Krusher” in a story titled Sergey Kovalev will receive $125,000 from his $500,000 purse for fighting Bernard Hopkins. “Taxes are counted at the end of the year and I have to pay all of them. They told me that from my earnings I have to pay 50 percent taxes, plus deduct payments for my manager and trainer,” said Kovalev, who earned $500,000 for beating legendary Bernard Hopkins. “What’s left is about 25 percent of my purse. There’s not a lot of money to wrestle thinking how to spend it. I have son, Alexander – all the diapers, clothes – they cost a lot.” (more…)
