By Nick Giongco

Former WBC lightweight king Jose Luis Castillo has arrived in Manila. The heavy-handed Mexican has been picked to spar with Manny Pacquiao, who is training in Baguio City for his Nov. 14 showdown with Miguel Cotto. Castillo arrived at 5:30 am via Philippine Airlines from Los Angeles and he was joined by unbeaten American super-lightweight Danny Escobar, who might also be used to spar with the Filipino pound-for-pound king. Castillo and Escobar were brought to a downtown Manila hotel and awaiting word about their travel plans since Baguio is not accessible by land owing to the landslides. Pacquiao has been training in Baguio the past few weeks and sparring with unbeaten super-welter Shawn Porter and Urbano Antillon.

Cleverly still unbeaten

By Alexey Sukachev

The new Welsh pride Nathan Cleverly (18-0, 8 KOs) wasn’t impressive all the way but got the job done against former amateur star Courtney Fry (13-3, 5 KOs), stopping him at 2:51 of the eighth to retain both his British and Commonwealth light heavyweight titles. WBO #5, IBF #8, WBC #11 and WBA #15 Cleverly started the fight in his usual mode, targeting Fry’s body with his left hook and adding right hand on occasion, while also peppering his foe with a jab. However, it was right uppercut, which won the fight for the Cardiff native. He hadn’t discovered this up to the midst of the fight and gave Fry some spotlight in the fifth, when he ate a variety of different shots from his rival. It was when Cleverly sensed he had to get back to some basics and he did that indeed. Rounds six and seven were rather tedious, but in the eighth stanza the Welshman finally started to deliver some bombs. At the end of the round, he increased his punch output and continuously rocked Fry several times, the last one with right uppercut and the subsequent right hand, forcing referee Victor Loughlin to stop the fight and… to fell down on canvas with him. A nice win for rising prospect and Cardiff University student Nathan Cleverly.

Beijing British Olympian Billy Joe Saunders (4-0, 3 KOs) was forced to go the distance for the first time in his career by Latvian rugged journeyman Alex Spitko (6-16, 4 KOs). The score was 40-36 by Dave Parris in Saunders’ favor.

By Damrong Simakajornboon

WBA # 6 super featherweight Somsak Sithchatchawal (60-3-3, 44 KOs) barely kept his PABA interim 130lb title as he drew against PABA # 14 Dante Paulino (reportedly 14-8-2, 10 KOs) on Friday at Taksin University in Songkhla, Thailand. Filipino Paulino surprised the Thai crowd as he excitingly battled with the former WBA 122lb champion in a close affair bout. It seemed that the Filipino dropped the local fighter twice, in round two and round five, but the referee considered as Sithchatchawal’s slips because of the wet canvas. Scored: 105-104, 104-105 and 105-105. After the bout, promoter Kokiet Panichyarom said he will hold the rematch of Sithchatchawal-Paulino soon, probably next January.

By Lee Bates

Former world light heavyweight champion Glen Johnson (49-12-2, 33 KOs) does a tire hitting drill under the watchful eye of trainer Orlando Cuellar in Miami, Florida. Johnson is in preparation for his much anticipated November 7th rematch with current IBO light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (28-0, 17 KOs). Also at stake will be the WBC Interim title. Johnson and Dawson fought in March of 2008 where Dawson won a hard fought unanimous decision. Johnson closed the bout extremely strong hurting Dawson which left the door open for a rematch. The bout will take place in Dawson’s resident state of Connecticut in the city of Hartford. The venue will be the XL Center. “I’m very pleased with my training camp as it has gone beautifully. This time around I will eliminate all doubts to who the winner is. I will stop Chad Dawson inside the distance and once again I will be light heavyweight champion of the world,” said Johnson.

Q&A: Sergiy Dzinziruk

By Alexey Potapov

WBO light middleweight champion Sergiy Dzinziruk (36-0, 22 KOs) is looking to make a unification fight against IBF light middleweight champion Cory Spinks (37-5, 11 KOs) on October 31st in Las Vegas. Dzinziruk spoke about that and many other things in an exclusive interview with Fightnews.com

Hello, Sergiy. Glad to see you again. How are you?

Hi Alex! I’m great, thanks.

There’s talk about a possible fight against Cory Spinks. Is it the truth?

Yes. Now I am at home in the Ukraine. After Universum Box-Promotion couldn’t organize my fight against Paul Williams, I was compelled to break off with this organization. They’re not getting me work. I contacted the managers of Spinks and offered them a unification fight. They suggested we discuss in detail in the USA. Next week I depart to America and I’ll organize that fight and probably and find a new promoter for myself.

Have you met with Klaus Peter Kohl to discuss the situation?

I wanted to meet with him, but probably he didn’t want it. As a result, now I communicate by means of the lawyer.

Why are you interested in a fight against Spinks?

This fight would be interesting to millions to fans of boxing and for a long time I dreamed of fighting in America. Such a fight is the best chance for me. Besides, Spinks wants the fight with me.

You’re not worried about carrying out a fight as soon as October 31st?

No, I keep myself in excellent condition and I perfectly know the style of conducting a fight against Spinks. I’ve seen a lot of his fights.

Do you have a manager?

No. I don’t think that it’s necessary for me. I’ve been in boxing for a lot of years and I also know it as a business. Assuredly I will have an advisor.

I spoke with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, he expressed interest in you fighting for his company K2 Promotions. Did you know this?

I want my fights to be seen in the Ukraine. I have agreed to meet with Vitali and talk about it. If conditions suit me, all is possible.

Did you speak with the WBO about your promotional situation?

They have granted me a delay in the defense of the title until February 2010. I should tell them thanks. They have understood the complex situation in which I’m involved.

I know, you wanted a fight against Paul Williams. But he will fight Kelly Pavlik on December 5th. Your prediction for this fight?

I think that chances are 50/50. They’re boxing superstars and everyone has chance to win. It will be an interesting fight.

Manny Pacquiao is picking up more speed and more intensity in his training for the Nov. 14 battle with Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico. “Manny’s improving each passing day,” top trainer Freddie Roach told Manila Bulletin and fightnews after watching the lethal-hitting Filipino lefty rack up his 24th round of sparring on Thursday at the Shape Up Gym in Baguio City. “It was another very god day of sparring,” said the 49-year-old Roach, who has been calling the shots in Pacquiao’s corner since mid-2001. For the third straight sparring day, Pacquiao logged three rounds each with undefeated super-welterweight Shawn Porter and super-lightweight Urbano Antillon, something that brought a smile to Roach’s usually stoic face.

Boxing Result

Chaves KOs Diaz in two

By Lee Bates reporting from South America

Unbeaten WBO Latino light middleweight champion Diego Chaves of Argentina (12-0, 11 KOs) passed his stiffest test to date by stopping veteran and fellow countryman Walter Diaz (26-8-1, 15 KOs) in round two. Diaz entered the bout with three times the number of fights as Chaves and once fought former world champion Raul Balbi. In round one, Chaves displayed his superior hand speed and power rocking Diaz with several flush combinations. In round two, Chaves turned up his attack and floored Diaz with a barrage of punches. Diaz arose but it was obvious the end was near. Chaves closed on him fast and pinned him against the ropes unleashing lightening fast power combinations punctuated with a vicious straight right that sent Diaz to the canvas again. This time Diaz was counted out. The bout took place at the Club Los Indios, Moreno, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The show was promoted by Mario Margossian.
