Juan Manuel Marquez Quick Quotes

By Andreas Hale

Juan Manuel Marquez: “We prepared ourselves to win this fight again. We feel we won the first two fights and that’s how you should go into a fight. We knew the first two fights were close. The 3rd fight will shed any doubt of who the better fighter is. We’re not the only ones that say we won the first fight. The fans and media have said that as well.”

“I don’t believe age has anything to do with it. I prepare very well and I’ll be just as ready as I was a few years back.”

“I would rather fight Pacquiao three or four more times than to fight Mayweather again. Mayweather doesn’t fight. We know Pacquiao fights and we know that this will be a great war.”

Nacho Beristain: “Pacquiao has become a better technical fighter but Marquez has become better as well and is a more experienced fighter. He’s always going to be focused and ready. I think he’ll fight like he’s 24.”

Manny Pacquiao quick quotes

By Andreas Hale

Manny Pacquiao: This third fight will be the answer to whether or not Marquez got robbed in the other two fights. I never underestimate Marquez. There’s a big difference in me today.

Former WBO heavyweight champion Sergei “The White Wolf” Liakhovich (25-4, 16 KO), trained with Floyd Mayweather Sr. in Las Vegas recently. The two seemingly diverse personalities found some common threads. They both love boxing and they both like to win just as much. Sergei is thirsty to learn more of the mental aspects of the sports, more finesse and footwork. Mayweather thinks he is just the guy to teach Sergei the “slick-ness” as he puts it. Sergei was pleased with the time he spent with Mayweather and said he will return to Las Vegas in about 2 weeks to continue training with Floyd Sr.

Sergei commented about training with Mayweather, “I am not the type of person that can just sit around and wait. I have to keep busy. I needed to get in the ring and train. I feel I must always learn. I have what it takes and with the right teacher I can win the championship again. You have to use your mind as well as your body. Floyd can teach me the tricks to take my power and use it as a lighter, smaller fighter would. I feel he (Mayweather) can take me to a new level.” (more…)

Unbeaten Italian Devis Boschiero (29-0-1, 14 KOs), who will have a crack at the WBC super-feather belt against Takahiro Aoh of Japan on this coming Sunday, made a record of a shortest public workout shown to Japanese press people on Monday. After he eloquently responded to their curious questions, Bosquiero started his training and hit his trainer’s mitt for a while. Then he abruptly finished working. This workout lasted less than ten minutes. Some people say Bosquiero already had a morning training and just cooperated with the schedule of public training for press people to do interviews and for cameramen to take pictures. Grazie (thank you), Boschiero. He says he’s called “Boom Boom” due to his aggressiveness in Italy.

Promoter OK after crash landing

Promoter Greg Cohen, of Greg Cohen Promotions, is safe after being aboard the Boeing 767 from New Jersey that had to make an emergency landing at Warsaw, Poland’s Frederic Chopin International airport today. On his way to his fighter, James Toney’s fight against Russia’s Dennis Ledbedev this Friday, Cohen was among the 230 people on board who survived unscathed after trouble with landing gear forced the plane to land on its belly. Live television covered the entire landing, as sparks flew when the plane hit the runway, which was already covered with flame retardant foam. The LOT airlines jet had previously circled and dumped most of its fuel before the perfect emergency procedure.

“That was crazy,” laughed the virtually unflappable Cohen afterward. Cohen, who made a living in the private jet industry previously, is now a, thankfully, living commercial for his own former industry. He will continue on to Moscow, Russia, for Toney’s Friday showdown with WBA #1 cruiserweight contender Denis Ledbedev at the Khodynka Ice Palace.

History repeats with Alcine

If not the cycle of life, it is certainly the cycle of boxing. One star shines increasingly brighter while another fades further and further into the background, flickering and showing glimpses of hope, but becoming increasingly harder to see. New stars are given rise off the names that came before them. Sometimes the neophytes bite off more than can chew, but if the cards are dealt correctly, hunger will win out over experience. That’s what David Lemieux (25-1 24KO) and his GYM promoters are hoping as the young middleweight hopeful hopes to bounce back from his only career loss as he takes on former world champion Joachim Alcine (32-2-1 19KO) and fellow Laval, Quebec resident Joachim Alcine December 10th at the Bell Centre.

It was a good fight with both combatants fighting hard Gonzales taking a split decision. Duran’s promoter, Gulfstream Promotions, has now decided to ask the New Jersey Boxing Commission to take a look at the tape to see what they thought of the decision. “We feel Ossie didn’t get a well deserved decision,” said advisor to Duran Vinny LaManna. “We just want the Commission to look at all things. Sitting ringside we thought Ossie won six rounds to two no question. Watching the tape of the SHOWTIME broadcast only confirmed what everyone at ringside saw. Ossie won the fight. A reputable guy like SHOWTIME analyst Steve Farhood had Ossie winning the fight so I am not alone in what we saw. I want to thank Tom Brown and Goossen Tutor for giving Ossie the opportunity. At the end of the day, Ossie trained so hard and we had been in discussions for some major things with Ossie had he won this bout. Because of what we feel is a bad decision, those are on hold and keeps Ossie from his dream of fighting for a world title.”

SHOWTIME leads the charge with the world championship fight between IBF super middleweight king Lucian Bute vs. Glen Johnson at 9PM ET/PT, while HBO counters at 10:15PM with an junior middleweight clash between Alfredo Angulo and James Kirkland at 10:15PM ET/PT.

Meanwhile FOX Deportes’ “Top Rank Live” series presents former super flyweight titleholder Tomas “Gusano” Rojas vs. Dario Azuaga at 10PM, while Don King presents a card on WealthTV headlined WBA cruiserweight champion Guillermo Jones vs. Michael Marrone, which goes live at 8PM with five live fights.

Add to that ESPN Deportes, which brings us heavyweights Chris Arreola vs. Raphael Butler, also at 10:15PM. According to the promoter, the erratic Azteca America will televise the heavyweight clash between Mariusz Wach and Oliver McCall.
