Weighing in 5.5 lbs. heavy on a scale deemed suspect by many fighter camps, Hector Camacho Jr. has given up his WBC Caribbean jr. middleweight belt for tomorrow’s showdown with Ramon “Yory Boy” Campas. Campas made weight, coming in at a trim 152 while Camacho, one of four fighters out of ten who were overweight, came in at 159.5. Rather than sweat off the excess, an agreement has been made between camps and Camacho will forfeit his belt. Agreements were also made between the camps of David Medina and Miguel Hernandez (who was 4.5 lbs. heavy); and Bobby Joe Valdez and Abel Perry (Valdez was 3 lbs. over). The only fighter who hit the gym was Antonio Escalante, who was reweighed at 128 (originally 130). While several fighters and camps protested the scale used by Texas Athletic Sports commission, officials were adamant about the scale’s accuracy. FOR MORE PHOTOS, CLICK HERE

So, we’ll allow him a chance to decide and notify us.” (more…)

Johnson: I Need A KO

Glen Johnson (49-12-2, 33 KOs), still displeased because he believes he beat Chad Dawson (28-0, 17 KOs) in their April, 2008 fight, said Thursday he can’t win a decision in the rematch, which is set for November 7 in Hartford, Conn. “We have to make some adjustments,” the 40-year-old Jamaican said during a teleconference. “I have to get the knockout; it’s the only way to stay away from the robbery.” Dawson, who lives in nearby New Haven Conn., said fans can expect more of what he showed in the first half of their first fight, which he won by scores of 116-112 on all three cards. “The second half of the fight, I got caught up in a slugging match,” the 27-year-old said. “I plan to use my boxing skills for the whole fight.” The fight will be broadcast live on HBO World Championship Boxing, beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET, 6:30 p.m. PT.

King Arthur backs Valuev

SE / Photo Wende

King Arthur Abraham believes that Nikolai Valuev will successfully defend his WBA heavyweight title against David Haye. The Russian giant takes on the British challenger in Nuremberg on November 7. Fresh off a mini vacation in Rome following his spectacular Super Six World Boxing Classic KO victory over Jermain Taylor, King Arthur popped into the Max-Schmeling-Gym today where Valuev held an open training session for the press. “I think Nikolai is going to win,” King Arthur said. “For Haye it will be difficult to come out of cruiserweight and fight a man that is as tall and heavy as Valuev. I think Haye will tire towards the end because he has a lot of size to push away. Haye is a good boxer, no doubt about that, but I believe that Niko will take care of business. He will control the fight with his long left jab.”

Kids try and remove his mask when he goes trick-or-treating on Halloween. He’s a big, scary and intimidating guy and a lot of people are scared for me in this fight.” (more…)

The comeback of Sechew Powell

By Matt Richardson

Ed Mulholland

Ed Mulholland

There was a time not too long ago when junior middleweight Sechew Powell was one of the brightest prospects coming out of New York City. 20 wins, no losses and 11 wins coming by way of knockout. A fixture on Lou DiBella’s monthly Broadway Boxing series, the well spoken Powell was starting to become a force to be reckoned with at 154 pounds. But then the results started to fluctuate: a decision loss to Kassim Ouma was followed by a less than scintillating win over Ishe Smith. Powell bounced back to win two in a row by knockout but then, shockingly, was stopped by Deandre Latimore in a seventh round technical knockout loss in the summer of 2008. He has only fought twice since and only one of those fights took place this year. But on December 12, Powell (now 25-2, 15 KO’s) returns to box Antonio Mesquita at the Paris in Las Vegas, Nevada. For the Brooklyn born and raised boxer, it marks a chance to get back to where he once was. (more…)

Fightwriter on Camacho-Campas

By Graham Houston

In an oddity of a fight on Friday, Hector “Machito” Camacho Jr. meets Luis “Yory Boy” Campas in what is being billed as “Revenge of the Son”. I don’t know about “revenge” because Campas fought a draw with Camacho’s famous dad, Hector — he didn’t beat the 48-year-old “Macho”.  Anyway, now it is the turn of the “little male puppy” — I believe that is how “Machito” translates — to try to go one better than the old man . . . More
