Andy Lee thinks Froch would possibly be too powerful for Golovkin, doesn’t see Mayweather fighting GGG

Stating last night on Sky Sports as he analysed the Gennady Golovkin-Curtis Stevens fight that he would like a shot at Golovkin himself, Lee said that in a couple of fights’ time he will be ready for the man known as GGG. Lee, 30-2(21) also made it clear he wants to fight Sergio Martinez.

“I think I have the style to beat him,” Lee said of Martinez. “And then maybe after that fight I’ll fight Golovkin. We’ll see. The word with Sergio is he’s looking to fight [Miguel] Cotto or maybe Canelo Alvarez, and is trying to avoid Golovkin, so we’ll see what happens.” (more…)

Raheem destroys Coleman in two

Fighting as a junior middleweight, Zahir Raheem (34-3, 21 KOs) knocked Tim Coleman (19-4-1, 5 KOs) down four times and stopped him at 2:04 of the second round. After a feeling-out first round, Raheem decided to test Coleman’s conditioning with a few taps to the body. It was a wise choice, as Raheem dropped Coleman with a left hook to the body shortly after the start of round two. Soon after, he dropped him again with a right to the body. The third knockdown was another right to the body. The fourth and final knockdown was a left hook to the jaw. Referee Bobby Howard waved the fight off.

Oliver-Lock ends in a draw

Looking for his second consecutive win after capturing the NABA featherweight title two months ago, Hartford’s Mike Oliver fought to an entertaining draw against Brooklyn challenger Cornelius Lock on Saturday night at Foxwoods Resort Casino. The eight-round bout between Lock and Oliver was the main event of Jimmy Burchfield’s “Connecticut Classic” pro-am card, featuring six amateur and six professional bouts. Following his disqualification win over Eric Hunter in September, Oliver (26-5-1) came out aggressive against the stronger Lock, but was at his best when weaving in and out of trouble while Lock was the better fighter toe-to-toe. The two staged a tremendous finish over the final four rounds, exchanging blows along the ropes and in the center of the ring. Lock (21-6-2) earned a 78-74 decision on one card while the other two judges each scored the bout 76-76, resulting in a majority draw. (more…)

Unbeaten WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (28-0, 25 KOs) scored an eighth round TKO over Curtis Stevens (25-4, 18 KOs) on Saturday night in the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Golovkin dropped Stevens hard at the end of round two with a huge left hook. Stevens beat the count and went defensive the next round-and-a-half to clear his head. Stevens landed some good punches at the end of round four. But, Golovkin was back in command in round five and punished Stevens until the fight was halted at the end of round eight.

In a terrific slugfest between unbeaten heavyweights, Mike Perez (20-0, 12 KOs) won a hard fought ten round unanimous decision over Magomed Abdusalamov (18-1, 18 KOs). Both went at it immediately with Perez getting the better of it. Abdusalamov got back into the fight in round two and the war was on. By round six, the left side of Abdusalamov’s face was badly swollen. Perez was deducted a point for a low blow in round nine. Scores were 97-92, 95-94, 97-92.

In a bout for the vacant IBO cruiserweight world title, Ola Afolabi (20-3-4, 9 KOs) scored a twelve round majority decision over Lukasz Janik (26-2, 14 KOs). Scores were 114-114, 117-111, 115-113. Janik was cut over both eyes in a mainly dull encounter. (more…)

In a long awaited clash of unbeaten heavyweights, Lucas Browne (18-0, 16 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Richard Towers (14-1, 11 KOs) in an eliminator for the Commonwealth heavyweight belt (still held by David Price) on Saturday night at the Hull Ice Arena in Hull, England. The 6’8 Towers was never in the fight as Browne walked right through him. Browne rocked Towers with a right hand at the end of round three, stunned him again in the fourth, then battered him on the ropes with clubbing rights in the fifth. After a count, Towers was deemed unable to continue. Time of the stoppage was :51.

Lightweight Tommy Coyle (17-2, 7 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over John Simpson (25-10, 11 KOs) to claim the vacant IBF inter-continental belt. Coyle dropped Simpson twice in round seven and the bout was waved off by referee Phil “Quickstop” Edwards after the second knockdown.

Golovkin-Stevens: Full-distance fight not likely

By Graham Houston

The boxing world is in agreement that tonight’s middleweight title fight between Gennady Golovkin and Curtis Stevens won’t be going the full 12 rounds at Madison Square Garden’s theatre (TV coverage on HBO in the U.S. and Sky Sports in the U.K.) Furthermore, there seems to be almost unanimous accord that Golovkin is going to win, probably quickly. I’m certainly expecting Golovkin to retain his WBA and IBO titles with a stoppage victory but I think that Stevens is going to be dangerous initially, and I’m not sure that Golovkin is going to blow Stevens away as easily as some believe will be the case.

Stevens, at 28, is a much more disciplined and mature fighter than when he was boxing as a 168-pounder earlier in his career. I think he is now a much better fighter than he was when Jesse Brinkley outclassed him in January 2009, which was the last time that Stevens lost.

Since returning to the ring as a 160-pounder — after a two-year layoff — Stevens has scored three one-round KOs in four consecutive wins. He looked devastating when blowing out Elvin Ayala and Saul Roman. There is no doubt that Stevens can crack with the left hook. I believe that Stevens trained something like 10 weeks for this fight and he looked in tremendous condition at the weigh-in, with sharply defined musculature. (more…)

Pacquiao to hold free boxing show in GenSan

By Nick Giongco

Manny Pacquiao’s MP Promotions is staging another free-to-the-public boxing show on Dec. 14 at the Tumbler Gym in General Santos City. Topbilled by rising bantamweight Jack Tepora, who has an unbeaten record of 8-0 with five KOs, the Pacquiao-promoted event will be one of many cards the Filipino star is going to unveil in the coming months, according to his Canadian adviser Mike Koncz.

Pacquiao, who turns 35 on Dec. 17, is in the thick of training for his crucial comeback bout set for Nov. 24 against Brandon Rios in Macau. Last week, MP Pormotions staged an IBF light-flyweight title clash between Filipino Johnreil Casimero and Mexican challenger Felipe Salguero at the Makati Coliseum. Koncz said the TV ratings blew them away. “It was a great success,” said Koncz, who was at ringside together with Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum.

Tepora is originally from Cebu City and is being groomed for bigger things. A former amateur standout, Tepora, just 18 years old, will be going up against a tough Thai who will be named later. Also lending a hand to Koncz in putting up the Dec. 14 show is Nonoy Neri, one of Pacquiao’s local trainers.

Saturday night’s event will be broadcasted in more than 100 countries worldwide, on the biggest, most important TV stations, including SKY in the United Kingdom, Channel 1 in Russia, Polsat TV in Poland or for the first time, as a live boxing night broadcasted from US on the German SAT1 channel.”
