Panther Promotions offered up an enticing appetizer this afternoon at The Seminole Hard Rock in advance of their “Future Superstars” card next Friday night at the casino. Nestled amongst the “Meals on Wheels” trucks parked in the Hooters parking lot, boxing fans enjoyed a taste of next week’s intriguing undercard. Female flyweight Marisol Miranda (4-4, 1 KO) worked up a hard sweat in the South Florida heat with head trainer Bonnie Canino during some intense shadowboxing, mitt work and light sparring. Miranda squares off against Chantel “Gorgeous Babe” Cordova (8-2-1, 3 KOs) of Colorado in a six-round undercard special attraction. For more details and photos click here…

Shimizu out until next Spring

By Joe Koizumi

Newly crowned WBA super-flyweight champ Tomonobu Shimizu, Japan, will be unavailable to make his initial defense until next spring since he suffered a right eye-socket fracture in his title-winning bout with Mexican Hugo Cazares this August. His manager Kentaro Kaneko said, “Shimizu will concentrate on recovering from the eye ailment and then prepare for his first defense, which will take place next April.” The 30-year-old champ hopes to return to ring warfare with his sound recovery next spring.

Gonzalez batters Mtagwa

Celebrating his 30th birthday as well as Mexican Independence Day, WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (50-7, 44 KOs) scored an impressive second round TKO over Rogers Mtagwa (27-15-2, 19 KOs) on Thursday night at the County Coliseum in El Paso, Texas. After an even round one, Gonzalez opened up in round two and rocked Mtagwa with a series of big shots. The iron-jawed Tanzanian was definitely hurt, but the bout was waved off by referee Guadalupe Garcia before we could see if Mtagwa would have weathered the storm. Time was 2:15.

After the fight, Gonzalez again called out the best of his division. “I want the best, Elio Rojas, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Juan Manuel Lopez and the others at this weight. Thanks El Paso, Viva Mexico!” said Gonzalez. Manager Oswaldo Kuchle added “Tonight Johnny G has been confirmed as one of the best fighters in the world and one of the biggest punchers today. We are very confident of facing the best and winning those fights.” For more details and photos click here…

Miranda, Orucuta KO foes

By Felipe Leon at ringside

In a quick beating, former world champ Julio Cesar “Pingo” Miranda (36-6, 29KOs) stopped Luis Carlos Leon (13-5, 11KOs) in two short rounds in the main event bout in Rosarito, Mexico. Leon looked game enough as both fighters displayed brisk action in the first. Leon even scored a scorching combination to the head of Miranda to start the second but one too left hooks to the body from Miranda did the trick as “Pingo” control of the second half of the round and punished Leon to the body until the end of the round Leon refused to come out in the third giving Miranda the KO win.

In the co-feature, late sub Felipe “Gallito” Orucuta (22-1, 7KOs) scored an impressive fifth round knock out of Colombian Deiby Perez (14-5, 8KOs). The Mexico City bantamweight took a couple of rounds to study his opponent but by the third on it was only a matter of time as he connected well placed jabs, right hands and body shots. Perez held his own but a hard left hook to the mouth of the stomach sent Perez down to the count. Official time was :23 of the fifth round.

Robert Lloyd-Taylor became the first ever reserve fighter to win Prizefighter after defeating Nick Quigley in the Prizefighter Light-Middleweights II final at York Hall in Bethnal Green.

Lloyd-Taylor won the coin-toss with fellow reserve Nathan Weise after JJ Bird fainted in the dressing rooms and was picked out of the hat first by former British, European and Commonwealth Light-Middleweight champion Jamie Moore in the first ever live draw, and WBC Super-Middleweight champion Carl Froch matched him with former two-weight fringe organization world champion Takaloo.

Ontario vs Quebec (in boxing)

With all due respect to the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadians, the long, rich arch-rivalry in sports between Ontario and Quebec is, perhaps, more prevalent today in boxing than even hockey.

The adversarial provincial competition continues November 5 at Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec as two-time world champion Steve “The Canadian Kid” Molitor (33-2, 12 KOs), of Ontario, faces Sebastian Gauthier (21-2, 13 KOs), of Quebec, in the co-feature on the Lucian Bute-Glen Johnson card, presented by Interbox.

Fury set for Firtha test

6’9 heavyweight Tyson Fury is ready for the next step following his win over Dereck Chisora in July at Wembley Arena and now expects 6’6 Nicolai Firtha to be a real test of his credentials on Saturday in Belfast’s King’s Hall. “Firtha’s a big man with plenty of heart and skill so I know I have to be ready for a really hard fight but I want fights like this, I want to be tested because I want to go to the top as quickly as I can,” said Fury. “I don’t want to be fighting bums. This guy has been the distance with the WBA World heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin so if I do a number on him then it shows everybody again that I’m the real deal, that I’m the man to fear in the division.”

Boxing back in Hollywood, FL

By Phil Doherty

The elusive Florida Panther remains one of the most endangered mammals on Earth. He is a solitary hunter active in the Florida swamps and marshlands between the hours of dusk till dawn. Panther Promotions honors both the name and character of this noble, tenacious creature with a night of increasingly “endangered” boxing between dusk to dawn on September 23rd from The Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. Separating themselves from the current promotional “pack” during their inaugural show here in July, Panther proved young fighters pitted together in truly tough fights remains a winning formula.

Panther’s old-school boxing philosophy continues with the recently-finalized undercard of the “Future Superstars” card. The main event featuring former lightweight world title challengers Daniel “The Prophet” Attah (26-7-1, 9 KOs) and Edner “Cherry Bomb” Cherry (28-6-2, 16 KOs) will cap an incredible mix of seven hotly-contested preliminary bouts. In addition to the intriguing co-main event between welterweights Damian “Devo” Frias (18-4-1, 9 KOs) and Henry Crawford (22-1-1, 9 KOs), Panther lined up some exceedingly explosive action.

‘Star Power’ quick quotes


By Andreas Hale

Photo by Chris Cozzone 

From today’s press conference at the MGM:

Floyd Mayweather: “Come Saturday night it’s going to be the same Floyd Mayweather. I’m pretty sure he’s going to be the same Victor Ortiz. But the difference between me and you is my ability to adjust and adapt. I’m versatile. I’m a good finisher too. You’re trainer said I was dirty, but when I hit you and hurt you, don’t grab me. I’m going to finish you off.”

Victor Ortiz: “Forty one of those fighters that couldn’t beat you weren’t me. Forty one of those couldn’t win it like me. On Saturday night I will put my hands up and I’m going to put you on your ass!”

Danny Garcia (Ortiz’s trainer): “(Floyd Mayweather) was one of the best fighters. He was pound for pound champion. But now its our time. We’re here to beat him. Victor is ready to do everything he can to take the victory. He trained very hard. He’s here to takeover his place. He’s going to be the number one pound for pound fighter for sure.”

Alfonso Gomez (via Internet feed): It’s the opportunity of a lifetime to fight Saul Alvarez; especially because this weekend is Mexican Independence Day. I want to showcase my talents to the millions of viewers. It’s a dream come true. I consider this the most important fight of my career because of what’s at stake. Winning this fight will change my life.

Saul Alvarez (via Internet feed): “I’m very happy to be in the main event at Staples Center. I never dreamed I’d be a champion at this age but it’s an honor to be in this position.”

Erik Morales: “It will be a great fight. We’re here and I hope to be the one winning. I say I hope because it’s never written. It’s Gods will. But I’m very confident that I will come out with my hand raised.”

Pablo Cesar Gano: “I’m very excited. My whole life has been about challenges. This is a big challenge but I’m ready and looking forward to it. I know it’s not going to be an easy task fighting a legend like Erik Morales. But I’m a great fighter. I’m here because I will win on Saturday night.”
