Crossroads fight for Ortiz, Peterson

Story by Andreas Hale
Photos by Chris Cozzone

Lamont Peterson and Victor Ortiz were both on the fast track to stardom in the boxing world when their respective dreams were deferred in 2009. Ortiz (28-2, 22 KOs) was dealt a crushing blow when he could take no more punishment and threw in his own towel against Marcos Maidana last June. Peterson (28-1, 14 KOs) would see his train derailed as he was soundly beaten by Timothy Bradley last December. But since then, both fighters have sought to get their respective careers on track and will meet in a collision this Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV on the co-featured bout of the Khan vs Maidana headliner. On Monday’s conference call both junior welterweights were of little words but got their points across as their date with destiny nears . . . click here for more

Bradley-Alexander Detroit Presser

Rare Silverdome fight in Detroit

By Lindy Lindell
Photos: Bob Ryder

In what is believed to be only the third professional boxing card in the history of the Pontiac Superdome, undefeated junior-welterweight champions Devon Alexander (WBC) and Tim Bradley (WBO) will square off in an event billed as The Super Fight on January 29. After a drought of almost a decade, this is the second big-time fight in the Motown area in a year.

The HBO-televised 12-round unification bout between Alexander (21-0, 13 KOs) and Bradley (26-0, 11 KOs) is unusual in modern-day boxing in that both are undefeated. Promoter and primary tub-thumper Gary Shaw, when queried at today’s press conference as to what two non-Michiganians mean for a boxing promotion, cited, “This is an excellent matchup between two young African-American boxers at the top of their game. You’re going to see a helluva fight. There won’t be any reason for the boobirds to sing. These are the top two junior-welterweights in the world–hands-down, and the winner of this fight, I believe, would make the best matchup with Manny Pacquiao.” For more details and photos click here…

Remillard eyes 2011 title shot

Unbeaten NABF and NABO featherweight champion Matt “Sharp Shooter” Remillard, has targeted a 2011 world title fight. The 24-year-old Remillard (23-0, 14 KOs), currently a promotional free agent, won all three of his 2010 fights by knockout. He has climbed the ratings systems to #3 in the WBO, #6 in the WBC, and #7 in the WBA.

“Ratings do mean something because I’m eligible in three major boxing organizations to fight for the world time,” Remillard said. “At #3 in the WBO, I’m so close that I need to stay ready in case I get a call. If either one of the two fighters rated higher than me (#1 Daniel Ponce De Leon and #2 Chonlatarn Piriapinyp) fight for another title, lose, or get injured, I move up and then I’m even closer to a mandatory shot.

UFC 124 is LIVE on PPV Dec. 11!

Preview by Brady Crytzer

In a dramatic contrast of styles, UFC world welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre defends his title against arch nemesis Josh Koscheck in the main event of UFC 124 in Montreal. On one side of the cage you have GSP, a natural striker who has readjusted his focus to become one of the sport’s best wrestlers. Awaiting him is Koscheck, quite possibly the sport’s most decorated wrestler who has been delivering brutal knockouts as a testament to his commitment to diversifying his own attack. Anxious to test their new skills against the best in the world, these two men will showdown after nearly four months of preparation. Will it be the wrestling of St. Pierre or the striking of Koscheck that wins the day? Let’s take a closer look at this cold December showdown in the Great White North . . . Click here for more

Pascal, Hopkins ready for clash

By Karl Freitag

WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal and ring legend Bernard Hopkins hosted an international media conference call to discuss preparations for their fast approaching December 18 world championship bout at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, where 16,000 seats have already been sold. Oddmakers favor Pascal by more than 2:1.

“I’m going to bring my A game and let’s see if the teacher can still teach,” said Pascal from his training camp in Miami. “I found some things I can exploit of December 18…I have two or three surprises for him.”

Hopkins, who turns 46 next month, said he would be doing a disservice to boxing if he retired just because of his age and promised that reporters who think he should retire will eat crow come December 18. “My life has been about proving people wrong…Pascal has to worry about what I’m bringing to the table…I’m known for ruining careers.”

Roach wants Pacquiao-Martinez

Pacquiao-Martinez "most exciting" fight, says Roach

Text & photo by Anthony Springer Jr.

When asked about the next potential opponent in the Manny Pacquiao sweepstakes, Freddie Roach ran down the usual cast of characters—and dismissed them all with relative ease. If Roach has his way, “Pac-Man” will match up with the man who rose to stardom with the most exciting knockout of 2010.

“I’d like to see him fight [Sergio] Martinez right away,” Roach said last night during a media roundtable. “[Floyd] Mayweather, with what he has going on in his life right now; I think he has to handle that before he can even talk about fighting. Sergio Martinez at the right weight I think can be the most exciting fight out there.”

Howard’s plan for Alves

UFC 124 is LIVE on PPV Dec. 11!

The rule is “no one wants to stand and trade with Thiago Alves.” It is a good rule. “The Pitbull” is famously the most feared striker in the UFC welterweight division and for good reason. The 27-year old Brazilian bruiser has scored seven of his nine UFC victories by KO or TKO, most in highlight reel fashion like the flying knee that appeared to nearly obliterate former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes. Even in Alves’ lone fight for the title, the champ, Georges St-Pierre, kept the fight against Alves as much a grappling match as possible, knowing the safest road to a successful title defense was grounding “The Pitbull”. . . .

Dimitrenko speaks

European heavyweight champion Alexander Dimitrenko (30-1, 20 KOs) spoke to the press for the first time today in Hamburg since the incident last Saturday in Schwerin. The 28-year-old Universum fighter feinted in his dressing room an hour before his defense against Albert Sosnowski (46-3-1, 28 KOs).

“I am not seriously ill, thank God,” said Dimitrenko. “I’m still very angry that the fight didn’t come about. I was very well prepared, everything was perfect in training and I was really looking forward to the match. I caught an upset stomach and I had diarrhea since Tuesday. But I didn’t tell anyone. Not even my trainer. I was embarrassed and I’d deal with it by myself. I must lost a lot of electrolytes and minerals lost. And on the day of the fight I drank too little liquid, a total of only 1.5 liters. That wasn’t enough. It was my mistake, no question. I’m very annoyed about it and I’m very sorry that it happened. Too bad for the spectators and for SPORT1 who wanted to televise the fight in 3D. I have to admit this mistake and I’ll learn from my mistake. It annoys me still, but I can’t change it. I want to apologize to everyone involved. I’m really sorry. I’ll be ready to fight Sosnowski as soon as possible and I would like to thank all who have supported me in this situation, especially with my trainer, my wife and my promoter, who were still with me at night in the hospital asking about me and giving me courage.”

Ortiz, Peterson Quick Quotes

By Andreas Hale

Super lightweight contenders “Vicious” Victor Ortiz and Lamont “Havoc” Peterson hosted a media conference call today to discuss preparations for their upcoming fight on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Lamont Peterson:

On taking the fight with Ortiz: “With me I just love to fight. It doesn’t matter if it is a cab driver or a champion, I love to fight. When the opportunity comes up to fight on HBO against somebody like Victor Ortiz, of course I’m going to jump on it. It’s my job (and) there was no problem with me taking this fight. I think more fighters need to act that way. I’ll sign the paper to fight anyone.”

On Ortiz’ skill set: “Nothing worries me but of course you have to respect the fact that Victor can box. He can pretty much do it all and he does it well.”

Victor Ortiz:

On Peterson: “Lamont is a great fighter, it would be stupid on my end to talk bad about a great fighter.”

On Vivian Harris questioning his heart before their last fight: “I never really pay attention to what anyone says. I just take my time with things. Somebody is going to talk, I let them. I don’t say a lot. That’s not me. I was just excited to get in the ring and I was ready. I went to work and I did well.”
