“Today is the big day. There is so much to do before traveling to Berne, Switzerland today.  I had hoped to get in a little sparring this morning before getting on the plane, but my sparring partners looked like they need a break so I let them off the hook.

“But I did get in a 5K run on the treadmill (it was raining outside), did some calisthenics and shadowboxed for an hour.  After that, I got in a 45 minute workout with my personal trainer, then sat down with my manager and trainers to map out the game plan for the next two weeks.   (more…)

Ikehara upsets #13 Yamaguchi

By Joe Koizumi

JBC#3 hard-punching flyweight prospect Shigetaka Ikehara (19-1, 15 KOs), 110.25, decked an upset victory when he started fireworks from the outset, floored WBC#13 formerly three-time world challenger Shingo Yamaguchi (24-7-2, 10 KOs), 110, with a vicious body shot and finally halted him at 2:06 of the third round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

It was a sad swan song of Yamaguchi who had failed to win the world belt on three occasions—losing to WBC 108-pound champ Yosam Choi by a tenth round TKO in 2002, to WBA 112-pound ruler Takefumi Sakata by a unanimous nod and to WBC 112-pound kingpin Daisuke Naito by an eleventh round stoppage both in 2008. Miserably Yamaguchi, handled by ex-WBA champ Katsuo Tokashiki, was overpowered by the younger Ikehara all the way, though he attempted to fight back in the second. The third witnessed the underdog Ikehara dig a wicked shot to the midsection to have Yamaguchi kneel down and then furiously swarm over the fading veteran as the fight resumed. The ref mercifully declared a halt to save the loser from further punishment. (more…)

Q&A: Tim Coleman

When Balimore, Maryland native Tim Coleman (16-1-1, 4 KOs) last fought in front of a nationally televised audience he nearly upset unbeaten James De La Rosa back in October of 2008. In fact the ring announcer initially announced Coleman as the winner in error but quickly corrected himself and announced De La Rosa as a close decision winner. Since the loss to De La Rosa, Coleman has strung together two victories including a rematch with veteran Martinus Clay. The two had a draw in 2007 but Coleman won the rematch by way of a wide margin unanimous decision. Coleman will once again get an opportunity in front of a live national audience to show that he’s ready for contender status when he takes on former world title challenger Mike Arnaoutis (23-3-2, 10 KOs). The bout will take place this Thursday at the Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom, in New York, New York and will be a scheduled for 12 round main event for the vacant USBA light welterweight title. The Versus network will televise. Fightnews spoke with Coleman as he closed out his training camp.

With a capacity attendance of 20,000 fight fans Green has promised not only to defeat Jones but make Jones’ first professional fight outside the USA the biggest mistake he has made in his professional career. “I want to destroy him,” proclaimed Green. ”I picture his legs wobbling and me delivering the KO punch. I see him unconscious on the canvas. He’s slumped on the canvas. I picture him asleep on the canvas. His corner runs into the ring, mine run into the ring. I see them picking him up and mine lifting me onto their shoulders – after I make sure he’s all right. I don’t want to just defeat Roy Jones Jr. I want to destroy him!”

Last November 14th, Yuri Foreman made history by winning the WBA junior middleweight title over favored, experienced titleholder Daniel Santos. Indeed, Foreman became the first Israeli(and first Jewish boxer in twenty years) to become a pro boxing champion. Also unique the fact that Yuri is to be ordained in the coming year as a rabbi. A compelling story for boxing and a reward for a young man, born in Belarus, raised in Israel and residing in Brooklyn; one who pursued a dream that seemed very improbable when he first landed in New York, speaking no English and coming from a country where professional boxing is almost in-existent. The congenial Yuri Foreman shares his thoughts with Fightnews about his path to the top. (more…)

Greenidge: Green will KO Jones

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Danny Green’s American sparring partner Anthony “Ice” Greenidge has predicted a win for the Australian over boxing great Roy Jones Jr. The New Yorker has worked as a sparring partner to Antonio Tarver, Arthur Abraham and Jermain Taylor and says Jones will not know what hit him on Wednesday at the Acer Arena, Homebush, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Greenidge said. “No offense intended, but Danny doesn’t fight like your typical white boy,” he said. ”They tend to be straight up and walk forward and throw one-two. But Danny can move when he wants to move and he also has the ability to throw punches when he wants to. Danny Green will knock Roy Jones out. He punches too hard and too consistently. Roy Jones Jr won’t know what’s hit him.”

Unbeaten Japanese southpaw Koki Kameda (22-0, 14 KOs), 112, captured the WBC flyweight belt as he was awarded a unanimous decision over compatriot defending champ Daisuke Naito (35-3-3, 22 KOs), 112, on Sunday in Saitama, Japan. The official tallies were as follows: Hubert Minn (US) and Daniel Van de Wiele (Belgium) both 117-111, and Max DeLuca (US) 116-112, all in favor of Kameda, twelve years his junior at 23. The referee was Hector Afu (Panama), who controlled the fast-moving pair very well. It was not a good fight, as it was quite different from what people had wished to watch with high expectations. Kameda, who had boldly predicted a KO victory within the first three rounds, kept retreating and circling to show negative but effective counterpunching all the way, though Naito remained aggressive, stalking the elusive challenger.

Every so often a prospect comes along who has the punching power and aggressive style that gets fans excited, and John Molina, the unbeaten lightweight from Covina, CA, fits the mould. Molina’s trainer, Joe Goossen, says he sees something of Rafael Ruelas and Diego Corrales — world champions he trained — in Molina. “He’s tall like they were and a natural puncher,” Goossen said from his Los Angeles gym on Thursday. “I’ve had him starting faster. The way we train, he’s ready to go as soon as that bell rings. In the gym he’s been hurting welterweights and junior welterweights, and I’ve had him wearing 16-ounce gloves because even with 14-ounce gloves he’s been wrecking guys.” (more…)
