Newly-crowned WBA heavyweight champion David Haye was all smiles on Saturday afternoon at a luncheon to honor his majority decision victory over Nicolay Valuev. Haye has a mandatory title defense over former world champion John Ruiz, who he stated will be his biggest challenge in his career because of his fighting style. However, he was not shy about who he would like to face down the road. “I was destined to be a world champion. My biggest fight and payday will be against the Klitschkos. I know that the money will be the deciding factor in bringing them to the table.”

Golden Boy Promotions and Lou Dibella Entertainment officially announced the January 30 showdown between six-time world champ “Sugar” Shane Mosley and current WBC welter champ Andre Berto, today at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The two will clash on HBO’s World Championship Boxing on Jan. 30, from the Mandalay Bay.

Lou Dibella: “You looked sensational against Margarito but you had a guy in front of you. He came right at you and had no speed. Right before the fight, he got caught for the cheater he is. As good as you looked, he let you look better than you are. Father time is not any of our friends and on January 30th in my heart I believe that the Shane Mosley era ends and the Berto era begins.”

Andre Berto: “This is a dream of mine to fight in Las Vegas in a megafight. This is going to be an epic fight.”

Oscar De La Hoya: “38 is now the 28 of today. (Mosley) is still young and fresh. That’s what sets him apart from all the fighters today.”

Shane Mosley: “I always thought Berto fought like me and I did say he made a lot of mistakes. He still makes those mistakes and its going to be a problem when we fight. I’m so excited to be able to fight on January 30th. I can’t wait.”

In one of two co-main events, junior welterweight Vernon Paris dominated Jesse Francisco of Crystal River, FL in scoring a second round TKO. Before the fight Paris had stated “I’m really excited about getting into action again and more importantly I’ve learned from the mistakes I’ve made in my personal life. I want to stay active.” The “Ice Man” also credited his young daughter as giving him the inspiration to do the right thing. For more details and photos click here…

Van Heerden KOs Mponji in 1:42

By Ron Jackson

Unbeaten South African welterweight champion Chris van Heerden knocked out Venance Mponji from Tanzania after just 102 seconds in the first round of a bout scheduled for ten in Meyerton on Friday night. Mponji (65.50 kg) came out fast at the bell taking the fight to Van Heerden (66.16 kg) who backed off against his smaller opponent. However, the aggressive Mponji was unable to penetrate Van Heerden’s defence. Fighting off his back foot the southpaw South African calmly took everything thrown at him by Mponji before stepping in with a short right to the body that dropped the Tanzanian on his back where he took the full count from referee Alfred Buqwana.

Yamaki upsets Anzai

By Joe Koizumi

Unheralded underdog Yuichi Yamaki (7-8, 5 KOs), 112, decked an unexpected victory over previously unbeaten prospect, JBC#8 flyweight Masato Anzai (10-1, 4 KOs), 112, by a quick stoppage at 2:48 of the opening round on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. A time-keeper mistakenly had the gong sound at about 2:30, but the referee Uratani, without any reaction to the erroneous gong, admirably had it go on, as if he had a correct biological clock. He coolly allowed them to continue swapping punches for eighteen-seconds more and then declared a well-received halt. Had Uratani been the third man in the historically problematic Greg Page-Gerrie Coetzee heavyweight title bout in South Africa in 1984, he would have avoided a bizarre KO at 3:50 of the eighth round (though recorded as a knockout at 3:03 in the record books). Uratani’s interior clock might be more correct than the electronic time-keeper then used in Sun City (not made in Japan, hopefully).
