By Ray Wheatley–World of Boxing

WBO interim lightweight champion Michael Katsidis (26-2, 21 KOs) is the underdog in the betting for his scheduled twelve round title bout against Englishman Kevin Mitchell (31-0, 23 KOs) at Upton Park in West Ham, London on May 15. “Frank [Warren] has done a fantastic job getting me the fight and bringing it to England,” Mitchell said. “This is the kind of fight I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid.” The 25-year-old Mitchell is unbeaten in 31 fights and in the shape of his life, having seen off Amir Khan’s Colombian conqueror Breidis Prescott on points then knocking out Prescott’s compatriot Ignacio Mendoza in the second round in his last fight.

Margarito opponent named

By Francisco Salazar

An opponent has been confirmed to take on Antonio Margarito in May in Aguascalientes, Mexico. According to trainer Robert Garcia, who is now working in the corner of the former world champion, Margarito (37-6, 27 KO’s) will now take on hard-hitting Roberto “La Amenaza” Garcia of Texas in a 12 round bout. “More than likely, they are fighting for a minor or regional title to make it a 12 round bout,” said Garcia, who trains Margarito at his Boxing Academy in Oxnard, CA.

This will be Margarito’s first bout since January of last year, when he was stopped in the ninth round by Shane Mosley. Margarito was suspended for a year by the California State Athletic Commission after accusations of him having a substance amongst his hand wraps that hardens with water and sweat. (more…)

Kennedy ready for comeback

Undefeated Teon Kennedy, of Philadelphia, PA, makes the first defense of his USBA super bantamweight title when he faces Jose Angel Beranza, of San Pedro, CA, in the scheduled 12-round main event on Saturday evening, May 22, in the Grand Ballroom at Bally’s Atlantic City. This will mark Kennedy’s first fight since Nov. 20, 2009, the night he won the vacant USBA title in his tragic encounter with Francisco Rodriguez, of Chicago, IL, at the Blue Horizon in Philadelphia, PA. In that match, which was close on the scorecards after nine rounds, Kennedy won by knockout when referee Benji Estevez stopped the contest at 1.52 of the 10th round. Rodriguez had taken a beating in the 10th, but was still on his feet when the fight was stopped. Rodriguez was led back to his corner and he sat down on the stool, but when he did not respond minutes later, he was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. He died 48 hours later from brain injuries suffered in the fight. (more…)

Domingo-Melendez in Cebu?

By Nick Giongco

Cebu boxing impresario Tony Aldeguer said on Tuesday that a show featuring Michael Domingo and Colombian Luis Melendez is being eyed for May 1 in Cebu. Melendez is best remembered by boxing fans for his 12-round decision loss to Z Gorres late last year in Las Vegas. Although Gorres won, the Filipino collapsed as he was celebrating on top of the ring. Melendez floored Gorres with a wicked blow to the jaw late in the fight and that punch was said to have caused the bleeding in Gorres’ brain. Gorres was rushed to the hospital for head injuries and immediately underwent an operation to remove a clot in his brain. Gorres wound up spending over two months in a Las Vegas hospital recovering before being allowed to go back to the Philippines. Aldeguer said Gorres’ fast recovery is “unbelievable.”

Four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr. worked out for the media on Monday at his farm in Cantonment, Florida (about 10 miles north of downtown Pensacola) in advance of his April 3 grudge rematch with Bernard Hopkins in Las Vegas. “Bernard Hopkins is a shark,” said Jones. “He’s a bottom feeder. He’s catfish. He’s waiting around for someone to die, and then he’ll bite into it. If something is dead, he’ll try to taste it. If something is alive, he doesn’t want any part of it. If something is close to dead he’ll try to eat it. “He wanted to wait until I was done. He didn’t have anywhere else to go and now he thinks he’ll get his revenge and ride out into the sunset. That’s the only way he is looking at it. It won’t be happening that way but that is the plot.” Click here for more quotes and photos

Bute bringing Miami Heat

Dave Spencer

By Dave Spencer/Fightnews Canada

It was a question that was answered before it was even asked. Seeing a tanned and relaxed Lucian Bute emerge in a pair of flip-flops and shorts as he welcomed the media to his palatial Miami estate that has been home since mid-February, it becomes very clear, very quickly why the Montreal boxer has decided to go south to prepare for his upcoming April 17th IBF championship bout versus Edison Miranda.

“Since I’ve become world champion my life has changed in Montreal. I walk on the street and everybody wants to talk to me, my phone is always ringing, it makes it hard to focus on my training and focus on my preparations. I came to Miami just to focus on what I have to do to get ready. It’s all hard training and relaxation, good food, watch video of my opponent and work on strategy.” For more details and photos click here…

Berto was scheduled to face WBA champ “Sugar” Shane Mosley in January 2010, but the earthquake in Haiti forced him to withdraw from that bout (Berto tragically lost eight family members in the disaster). “He’s a tough veteran,” Berto said of Quintana. “If you give him too much room or a little too much confidence he will take advantage of that. You have to impose your dominance early. I’m in a tough situation. Realistically I train hardest when a lot of people expect me to win. He’s a spoiler and he did the same with Paul Williams and I have to make sure I stay sharp and do a good job and dispose of him.”
