Bader ready for Brilz

No one remains undefeated forever. That goes double in the UFC’s light heavyweight division, which features a litany of 225-pound athletic, super freaks cutting down to 205 to throw their high-speed knuckle bombs with only a strip of leather to cushion the blow. The Ultimate Fighter season 8 winner Ryan Bader learned that the hard way by racking up back-to-back losses by guillotine choke this year. While that was a difficult lesson to digest, Bader believes he has made the necessary changes to bring him not only back to his usual winning ways, but push him further as one of top fist-missile throwers inside the Octagon . . .

WBO interim lightweight king Ricky Burns weighs options

New interim WBO world lightweight champion Ricky Burns is eyeing big fights both domestically and internationally in the 135lb division following his win over Michael Katsidis to become Scotland’s first two-weight world champion in nearly twenty years.

“The lightweight division is a really hot here and abroad at the moment,” said Burns. “Kevin Mitchell beat John Murray in a great fight back in July, while Murray has got a tough fight against WBA world champion Brandon Rios coming up. If Murray wins – and I’m hoping he does the job – then that opens up a unification fight between us. If he doesn’t then I’d love a shot at Rios. On the world scene Juan Manuel Marquez is there and so is Robert Guerrero plus Miguel Vazquez so I’m looking at some big fights ahead.”

Macklin targets stablemate Martinez; “He’ll have to up his game tenfold if he wants to hear the final bell against me”

WBA #4 middleweight Matthew “Mack the Knife” Macklin (28-3, 19 KOs) says he would have knocked out stablemate and current middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez had he been in the ring with Martinez during his most recent defense against Darren Barker. “I have a lot of respect for Martinez. What he’s done after taking up boxing so late is remarkable, but he’s really a natural light middleweight and I’m a big, strong middleweight,” said Macklin. I believe that my size, strength and power will be too much for him. I think Darren Barker did better than people expected but I also think that Sergio underperformed that night. Maybe subconsciously he thought he was in for an easy night against Barker and wasn’t at his best because of that. On that performance, he was lucky he wasn’t in the ring with me because I would have knocked him out. He’ll have to up his game tenfold if he wants to hear the final bell against me…” (more…)

Highly regarded unbeaten heavyweight contender Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius (16-0, 11 KOs) will take on Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora (15-1, 9 KOs) for the EBU heavyweight championship at the Hartwall Arena on December 3.

Previously he dropped a twelve round unanimous decision to Tyson Fury.

Already 7,000 tickets have been sold at the venue, before Helenius’ opponent was even announced. Apparently it came down to either Chisora or Johnathon Banks. In the co-main event, WBA heavyweight titlist Alexander Povetkin faces Cedric Boswell.

Pacquiao-Marquez III: No closure

By Graham Houston

One felt a sense of disappointment over Manny Pacquiao’s performance against Juan Manuel Marquez on Saturday night, a feeling that the Filipino superstar should have done better. In a fight where finality was expected, a sense of closure, Pacquiao once again had to settle for a decision that divided the judges and was open to debate. It could be that Marquez has the sort of style that will always trouble Pacquiao, the way that Ken Norton pushed Muhammad Ali to the limit in three fights.

Yet, frankly, much more was expected from Pacquiao. After all, his archrival Floyd Mayweather Jr. outclassed Marquez when they met two years ago. Pacquiao’s camp was talking about an overwhelming victory before the halfway mark. Instead, the welterweight title fight ended on a majority verdict, one round on one card from being a draw. (more…)

On Thursday, November 17th, Promotions Quiñones of Tijuana, Mexico, keeps the ball rolling in this their first year on the scene with another interesting fight card to be held at the now legendary Tijuana night club Las Pulgas located on Avenida Revolucion in the heart of the border city. The night will mark the second time that Gabriel Quiñones, the lead promoter, has presented an event in the cavernous hall primarily held for music although it has hosted boxing in the past.

Now in Medina, Ortega will face a fighter who is coming off a TKO loss in his last bout back in 2007.

Marquez, Pacquiao speak out

Postfight report by Andreas Hale

A dejected Juan Manuel Marquez walked into the MGM conference room after a scene that was all too familiar to the proud Mexican champion. Another twelve rounds with Manny Pacquiao and another decision that didn’t go his way. For Marquez, this was the Mexican painting a beautiful portrait only to see it thrown in the trash yet again by the judges. This time, there was an overwhelming air in the MGM Grand Garden Arena that Marquez would finally even the score. But after being an overwhelming underdog who executed a brilliant game plan that featured effective counterpunching that gave Pacquiao fits, Marquez had to listen to the judges’ scores of 114-114, 115-113 and 116-112 to once again give Pacquiao the decision. Marquez is understandably sick of the same story being played out and uttered a statement to the media that was shocking but perhaps made perfect sense to a man who did all he could to see the rug pulled from under him again . . .

Tactical early rounds, but things heated up in the fourth. Good round for Marquez in the fifth. Most rounds very close with both fighters having their moments, just like the first two fights. Pacman suffered a vertical cut over the right eye in the tenth from an unintentional headbutt. The last two rounds were close.

In the end scores were 114-114, 115-113, 116-112. The Pacquiao-Marquez trilogy now stands at 2-0-1 for Pacman. more photos

The Philippines’ Dennis Laurente (41-4-5, 22 KOs) ended seven rounds of a relatively dull fight and lowered the boom on Ayi Bruce (20-5, 12 KOs) with a devastating straight left that KOed Bruce in their scheduled eight round welterweight affair. Laurente was the aggressor throughout as Bruce couldn’t seem to muster up much offense. But a straight left ended all of that as Bruce crumbled to the canvas and remained there as referee Robert Byrd counted to 10. Time of stoppage was :57.

Rising prospect Jose Benavidez Jr. put some more rounds in the bank as he scored a one-sided unanimous decision against Samuel Santana. Benavidez (14-0, 12 KOs) scored two knockdowns in the first round, another in the second with a blistering body shot and dropped Santana (4-5) yet again in the fourth. All three judges saw the fight 60-50.

Victor Pasillas made his professional debut a successful one as he outpointed winless Jose Garcia (0-4) and cruised to a unanimous decision. All three scores were 40-36.

In the evening’s opening bout, Fernando Lumacad (25-3-3) earned a unanimous decision victory over Joseph Rios (10-6-2). It was closely contested battle but knockdowns in the 2nd and 5th round proved to be the difference as judges saw the fight 77-73, 77-74 and 78-72.

WBA International champion and #2 WBA-ranked cruiserweight Paweł Kołodziej (29-0, 17 KOs) didn’t even break a sweat when he knocked out Argentina’s Mauro Ordiales (26-9, 24 KOs) in round two of the main event of the “Wojak Boxing Night” event on Saturday in Gdynia, Poland. Kołodziej controlled the fight from the opening bell with his jab, finishing the fight just as he promised – by KO in the second round. Ordiales went down for the first time after precise left hook, and just seconds later he was down again after Kołodziej’s powerful right hand. Ordiales still wanted to fight, but his corner did not agree with his opinion, throwing in the towel and ending this one-sided battle.

City of Gdynia was not a very hospitable place for Argentinean fighters as in the co-main event heavyweight Andrzej Wawrzyk (24-0, 13 KOs), also in the second round, delivered a series of heavy blows to the head of Nelson Dario Dominguez (11-1, 5 KOs), and just like his colleague from “12 Round KnockOut Promotions,” defended his WBA International and WBC Baltic title by KO.

Pacquiao-Marquez III: A definitive ending this time?

By Graham Houston

The boxing world hopes for a sense of finality, a definitive conclusion, when welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao meets his bitterest rival, Juan Manuel, Marquez, on PPV from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Twice these proud warriors of the ring have fought down to the wire in compelling 12-round fights. Pacquiao has scored four knockdowns over Marquez, but the durable and accomplished Mexican veteran scored with such efficiency that an argument can be made that he was twice unlucky against Pacquiao — a draw and a heart-breaking one-point defeat.

Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, tells me he expects Pacquiao to get Marquez out of the fight inside six rounds. This, to me, is highly unlikely, but I do think that the Filipino powerhouse can win before the final bell rings. (more…)
