Golovkin meets Jerry Jones, talks possible Showdown with Canelo at Cowboy Stadium

By Jeff Zimmerman
Photos/Videos: Robert Hughes

Gennady Golovkin aka GGG visited the Lone Star State for the first time Sunday night as a guest of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones as his America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys played host to the Philadelphia Eagles at AT&T Stadium. In only a few short years, GGG has turned into America’s favorite fighter because of his fan friendly “Mexican Style” of fighting and the “Big Drama Shows” that have captured fans from coast to coast.

Jones, who brought in Manny Pacquiao for a couple of fights that drew between 40,000 to 50,000 must envision an even bigger draw at Jerry World with GGG and Mexican Superstar Canelo Alvarez if he can get by the rejuvenated Puerto Rican WBC Middleweight Champion Miguel Cotto on November 21st. If Cotto retains his title against Canelo, then a GGG-Cotto fight is likely land in New York with the hopes of a Canelo-GGG showdown potentially made another time at AT&T Stadium. GGG is also visiting San Antonio this afternoon to evaluate options there.

Higa, 20, runs to 8-0, 8 KOs to keep WBC youth 112lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

We fortunately could watch a couple of talented prospects with their impressive stoppages on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Unbeaten 20-year-old Daigo Higa (8-0, 8 KOs), 112, amazingly kept punching from the outset until he finally caught up with Philippine champ Renren Tesorio (15-7-3, 4 KOs), 112, and halted him at 2:05 of the tenth and final session to retain his WBC Youth flyweight belt that he had wrested from previously undefeated Kongfah CP Freshmart via upset seventh round TKO in Thailand this July. His handler, ex-WBA junior fly champ Yoko Gushiken said in the ring, “You’ve watched a young Gushiken. Higa is still young and will grow up to be stronger without doubt.” Higa, rather short as a 112-pounder, looked still less skillful, but his aggressiveness coupled with his abundant stamina and incredible volume of solid punches was superb enough to attract the ringsiders, all of whom praised his way of ferocious victory. Tesorio, a taller puncher, occasionally caught Higa with looping left hooks, which the Japanese fighting machine ignored and kept on punching and stalking him from pillar to post. Finally did he land a vicious right to almost topple Tesorio with the ref Fukuchi wisely grabbing him to save him from further punishment. (more…)

Gutknecht looking to school unbeaten Zeuge

Former world title challenger Eduard Gutknecht (28-3-1, 11 KOs) is planning to take the “0” from the record of unbeaten 23-year-old Tyron Zeuge (17-0, 10 KOs) when they meet for the IBF International and WBO Intercontinental super middleweight titles on November 21 at the TUI Arena in Hannover, Germany. Gutknecht went the distance with former WBO 168 lbs titlist Robert Stieglitz before moving up to light heavyweight and winning the Euro title. Now, he’s now 3-0 since moving back down to his original weight.

“I think this fight has come too early for Zeuge,” said the 33-year-old. “I’ve seen and experienced a lot in my career, whereas he is young and relatively inexperienced. I hold every advantage. I’m back at my best weight and I’m feeling stronger than ever, plus Hannover is within striking distance of my hometown Gifhorn so I will have the home support pushing me forward. This is a fight I can’t lose, and after I beat Zeuge, I want another shot at the world title.”

Bradley: I just caught him at the right time, Rios: I think it’s time to hang up the gloves

By Miguel Maravilla

Timothy Bradley: “I felt I was controlling the action and stayed in the pocket a little too much. Teddy told me to box. I hit him in the body early and noticed it hurt him. I just caught him at the right time…I just got done fighting. I just want to relax.”

Welterweight Jesse Vargas, who fought Bradley this past June, called out Bradley asking for a rematch.

“Oh God, here we go again,” Bradley said.

Brandon Rios: “I am not taking nothing away from Timothy. I went down and couldn’t continue. He hurt me with a good body shot.

“I had a wonderful career. I think it’s time to hang up the gloves. I love the sport so much it’s hard for me to turn my back on it. I hope I gave you all some good fights.”

Welterweight Kevin Bizier (25-2, 17 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over Fredrick Lawson (24-0, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at Miccosukee Resort and Gaming in Miami, Florida. Kevin Bizier controlled the fight like an old-world fighter landing terrifying combinations on Fredrick Lawson.

WBO finally sanctions Bradley-Rios

By Karl Freitag

It took until the day before the fight, but the WBO has decided to sanction tonight’s Timothy Bradley, Jr. vs. Brandon Rios bout as a defense of Bradley’s WBO welterweight title. The hang-up was due to variety of unique circumstances involving mandatory challenger Sadam Ali.

In its resolution of the issue, the WBO World Championship Committee has ordered the winner of the Bradley-Rios fight to reach an agreement for a mandatory defense against Ali within ten days after the fight. Should an agreement not be reached, sides may request a purse bid at any time. This fight must take place within 90 days.

If the winner of Bradley-Rios decides to move up in weight, the WBO will immediately vacate the title and Ali will then fight the “best classified contender” available, per WBO Regulations.
