Denkaosen-Kameda tomorrow

By Joe Koizumi

Boxing is a game that healthy young men exchange gloves, but it might be a new tradition that our Japanese contestants often wear a mask to avoid any virus infection. So did Daiki Kameda (15-2, 11 KOs), who will fight a rematch with the WBA flyweight champ Denkaosen Kaowichit (48-1-1, 20 KOs) of Thailand tomorrow (Sunday) in Kobe, Japan. They fought last October to a majority decision (115-113 twice and 114-114) in favor of the 33-year-old veteran Thailander. Since Kameda Promotions strongly asked for a direct rematch, the WBA finally sanctioned it after the convention in Colombia in November.

The 21-year-old Daiki, the younger brother of the WBC flyweight kingpin Koki Kameda, attempts to follow the footstep of the Klitschko brothers dominating the world belts in the same category at the same time. Today there was a weigh-n ceremony, where the champ tipped the beam at 110.75 to the 112-pound class limit for the challenger. (more…)

Q&A: Freddie Roach

Chris Farina/Top Rank

By Wolfgang Schiffbauer

Fightnews.com caught up with world class trainer Freddie Roach earlier today to discuss the Pacquiao–Mayweather fiasco, Joshua Clottey, Shane Mosley and the newest addition to Roach’s stable of champions, WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm from Cologne, Germany. The 49-years old Roach also talks about his past as an active fighter, his motivation about being a trainer and his battle with Parkinson disease.

What can you tell us about the whole Manny Pacquiao–Floyd Mayweather, Olympic style drug testing fiasco?

The thing is I am not giving in to Mayweather. He is not running the sport, the commissions do. If you let him run the sport, it’s like giving the first two rounds away. He doesn’t make the rules, the commissions and the sanctioning bodies make the rules. They have been doing that for a long time. Who the hell is Mayweather to tell us what to do? That’s not going to happen. (more…)

Pacman-Albertsons tieup

By Nick Giongco

Manny Pacquiao, boxing’s No. 1 attraction, has forged a commercial partnership with Albertsons, a major grocery chain in the US. According to Pacquiao’s adviser Mike Koncz, a shopper who pays a minimum of $50 worth of items in a participating branch in the Dallas area, will go home with a signed poster of the March 13 Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey fight. “Manny is very pleased with his partnership with Albertsons,” said Koncz. “This goes to show that Manny’s popularity has grown outside of the boxing ring.” Pacquiao is currently in the thick of training at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood under guru Freddie Roach. Pacquiao is expected to arrive in Dallas on March 7 or 8 for the final phase of his preparation.

Campillo files protest

By Flattop

Former WBA light heavyweight champion Gabriel Campillo filed an appeal Friday morning with the WBA – including all of the necessary documents and fees – to contest the split decision that was rendered for his January 29th title fight with Beibut Shumenov. Shumenov won a controversial split decision which was widely criticized by ringside observers and the television commentators. The WBA was also critical of the selections of the judges chosen by the Nevada State Athletic Commission because the sanctioning body had recommended several judges that had received special schooling and instructions at seminars that were designed to reduce the possibility of controversial scoring and/or inept judging but the NSAC selected only one of the judges referred by the WBA for the January 29th Beibut-Shumenov rematch. The NSAC-appointed judges Patricia Jarman and Jerry Roth respectively scored the bout at 117-111 and 115-113 in favor of Shumenov while the judge suggested by the WBA – Levi Martínez – had Campillo ahead at 117-111.

The current stumbling block is Valuev co-promoter Don King, who is holding out for a $4 million purse, a figure Klitschko’s manager Bernd Bönte told BILD was “Impossible even if Valuev had four belts and was undefeated.” He added that if Valuev doesn’t come aboard, there are other alternatives. Kalle Sauerland of Sauerland Event, Valuev’s other co-promoter, is optimistic that Klitschko-Valuev can be made. “This is an absolute must-fight,” he said. “We’ll find a solution.
