The WBA World Championship Committee stripped Jones of the “regular” title for having tested positive for diuretic furosemide in his fight against Lebedev on May 17 in Moscow, Russia.

Manny Pacquiao, Bob Arum Teleconference Transcript

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening, depending on what part of the world you are in. It is 10 PM in the evening here in the Philippines and we have had an extraordinary past two days here with Manny Pacquiao at his training camp here in General Santos City. Joining us here today are Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao and Hall of Fame Promoter Bob Arum to talk about what’s going on here and what will be coming up on November 23 when we have our historic event in Macau Live on Pay-Per-View between Manny and former world champion Brandon Rios.

BOB ARUM: It is very exciting to be here in General Santos City. The weather is such that we are trying to convince Julio César Chávez Jr. to train here – he would probably make 154 after he trained here. It’s wonderful, Manny built his own gym right in his own three-story building next to our hotel and it’s a tremendous place to train. In addition to Manny, Zou Shiming is here and we have the Chinese Army training here today with about 70 Chinese newsmen from Mainland China, Macau and Hong Kong. Manny looked terrific and we are getting really pumped up for the big fight on November 23rd. All of The Venetian Macao executives are here and it is really a spectacular event and the buzz here in the Philippines and in China is just enormous. Manny hosted a sumptuous media dinner at his mansion last night.

We now welcome Eight-Time World Champion and Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao.

MANNY PACQUIAO: Thank you everyone, this is Manny Pacquiao and I would like to thank you all for giving me this opportunity to speak to you. My training here in General Santos City is very good and I am getting very excited for the fight. I have been training very hard for this fight and right now I feel like I am 25-years-old and training that way. I feel very good. My stamina and my quickness and power are there and I am very excited about that. (more…)

Wilder: I’m thinking early-to-mid next year (for a world title shot)

Unbeaten heavyweight Deontay Wilder has earmarked a world title clash with one of the Klitschko brothers early next year before crossing the Atlantic to take care of brash-talking Tyson Fury. The ‘Bronze Bomber’, who has sent shockwaves through the heavyweight division after laying out all 29 of his past opponents, returns to the ring this weekend to face Nicolai Firtha on the undercard of Bernard Hopkins’ world title defence against Karo Murat in Atlantic City.

Speaking exclusively to BoxNation, the imposing 6ft 7in bruiser from Tuscaloosa, Alabama has his sight firmly fixed on becoming the next heavyweight champion of the world by dethroning the current kings of the division – the Klitschko brothers – who he believes have their vulnerabilities.

“I’m thinking early-to-mid next year [for a world title shot]. We’re trying to line it up now. At the moment I’m ranked number 3 by the WBC so we’re in planning right now. I’ll fight whoever they put in front of me,” said Wilder. “Everybody has weaknesses – the Klitschkos have weaknesses as well too. It’s just up to fighters to find them when they’re in the ring.

Ricky Burns-Raymundo Beltran II “99-Percent Done” for early February in Glasgow

By James Slater

Scotland’s Ricky Burns, fortunate to have retained his WBO lightweight crown by way of a controversial draw with Mexico’s Raymundo Beltran on September 7th, is almost certainly going to give Beltran a rematch next year. According to Burns’ manager, Alex Morrison, Burns will do the “moral thing” and give the man who broke his jaw a rematch next February. “Ricky feels it’s the moral thing to do in giving Beltran another shot,” Morrison told BBC Scotland. “He wants to put the record straight after fighting for ten-rounds with a broken jaw in that first fight. We want it. Beltran wants it and the fans want it. The deal is done. We’re 99-percent there with it and are just waiting for the final confirmation which will happen any day now. We’re looking at early February in Glasgow.” (more…)

This Saturday afternoon a very important Welterweight bout will take place as IBF number-one ranked Kell Brook (30-0, 20 KOs) will take on number-eight ranked and former WBA Welterweight champion, Vyacheslav Senchenko (34-1, 23 KOs). The 12 round elimination bout will top a terrific four bout card that will be televised on AWE and www.AWEtv.com beginning at 3pm eastern / 12 noon pacific.

Also appearing on the telecast will be the 2nd professional outing of 2012 Olympic gold medal winner in heavyweight Anthony Joshua (1-0, 1 KO) as well as a very important WBO jr. middleweight elimination bout between number-four ranked Brian Rose (24-1, 7 KOs) and number-five Javier Maciel (27-2, 20 KOs). The card will begin with a 10 round IBF Youth Jr. Middleweight bout between a pair of undefeated fighters in Adam Etches (12-0, 10 KOs) and Alexandre Mendes (10-0, 9 KOs)

“This is a stacked card from top to bottom,” said AWE CEO Charles Herring. “Brook and Senchenko is a very important fight. Brook was supposed to fight for the world title on three different occasions as now he is taking a huge risk in fighting a former world champion as well as a man who just knocked out the biggest hero in British boxing. Fans will also get a treat in seeing Anthony Joshua who many are predicting great things for in the future plus Rose and Maciel is a fight with huge implications.”

Ammeth Diaz stays home, title challenge against Titere Vazquez is cancelled

Photos: Zanfer Promotions

This Saturday’s scheduled mandatory title defense between IBF lightweight champion Miguel “Titere” Vazquez and Panamanian Ammeth Diaz in Tijuana was cancelled when the challenger’s team did not take the flight to Mexico. The Vazquez camp is hoping the IBF will decide to appoint a new challenger within 15 days, since Vazquez previously had defeated Diaz by one-sided decision.

The Diaz camp says they belatedly received the plane tickets from Zanfer for a Thursday night arrival which doesn’t leave sufficient time to recover for Friday’s weigh-in and Saturday’s fight. They expect no reprisals from the IBF regarding Diaz’ mandatory challenger status and feel he will still get a chance to fight Vasquez.

Saturday’s new main event at the Foro Tecate in Tijuana will be unbeaten bantamweight Daniel “Bad Boy” Rosas (16-0-1, 11 KOs) against Juan Alberto “Topo” Rosas (38-7-0, 27 KOs) in a ten-rounder that was previously the co-feature.

A healthy night of boxing turned out at the Las Pulgas nightclub in the heart of Avenida Revolucion in Tijuana, Mexico, when Mayen and Zanfer Promotions presented the second edition of their yearly “El Box Se Viste de Rosa” fight card comprised of all female fights. The event last year shot for the stars when lead promoter Guillermo “Memo” Mayen assembled a full night filled from the commissioner Jackie Nava, to the announcer, trainers, referee, ringside doctor and of course the fighters all members of the fair sex. This year, Mayen concentrated more in the actual action inside the ring.

Former and current champions Kaliesha West, Jolene Blackshear and the “Aztec Princess” Jackie Nava were on hand to witness WBC super-bantamweight champion Alicia “Slick” Ashley (20-9-1, 2KOs) scored her second knockout ever in her career when she stopped the game but outclassed Zenny Sotomayor (10-6-2, 8KOs) of Los Mochis, Mexico, in the fifth round of a scheduled female championship ten.

And the 36-year-old is already eyeing an even bigger fight for himself, to take place in Las Vegas.

Speaking with U.K tabloid The Sun, Froch revealed how his promoter Eddie Hearn has been talking to HBO about him facing either Julio Cesar Chavez or Gennady Golovkin.

“It’s potentially one of the biggest fights to happen in the last decade,” Froch said of his possible fight with Chavez Junior or Golovkin. “I’m told my promoter Eddie Hearn has already spoken to HBO about a big fight against Chavez Junior. But, from what I understand, HBO are more interested to see me in against Golovkin because there are not too many willing to fight him. Sure, Golovkin is frightening, but I fear no man. It would be an unbelievable fight that would get everybody excited – him or Chavez Junior.” (more…)

Juan Carlos Gomez returning to cruiserweight

40-year-old former WBC cruiserweight Juan Carlos Gomez (51-3, 38 KOs) plans to return to the ring as a cruiserweight on November 1. Gomez, who has been campaigning as a heavyweight for over ten years, stated “I had no more real motivation [at heavyweight]. I just boxed to make money, but now I have another goal in mind. I want to be world champion again – at cruiserweight.”

Gomez, who is training in Los Angeles, has definitely slimmed down. He will face Adnan Buharalija (29-18-2, 21 KOs) in a ten round bout in Dachau, Germany, that will be televised by Eurosport. “If I stay uninjured and healthy, I want to box on November 23 again,” added Gomez. “My goal is the WBC world championship. I’m going to get my belt back.”

Pacquiao: I’m going to do my best to put my name back on the top of boxing

By Karl Freitag

Eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38 KOs) and Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum hosted an international media conference call on Thursday. The call emanated from General Santos City, Philippines, where Pacquiao has been in deep, rigorous training for his battle with former world champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (31-1-1, 22 KOs) on November 23 in Macau, China.

Pacquiao said that he’s training as hard as he did earlier in his career. “We’re very focused on training, no distractions. For this fight in Macau, it’s better to train in the Philippines…I’m going to do my best to put my name back on the top of boxing. I’m very excited.”

Regarding Rios’ aggressive style, Pacman stated “That’s what I want. I like that. I like that style.”

He also stated he has been tested twice by VADA and that he is only focused on Rios and no other potential opponents.

Arum commented, “Manny is training more seriously and harder than anytime I’ve seen him…General Santos is a perfect place for him to train. He concentrates on nothing else but his training and I think the Manny Pacquiao you’re going to see on November 23 is going to be a Manny Pacquiao that is perhaps even better than the Pacquiao we saw against De La Hoya, Hatton and Cotto.

Hopkins vs. Mayweather at 160lbs?

Boxing’s oldest ever world champion Bernard Hopkins has his eyes on a superfight with pound-for-pound ace Floyd Mayweather should he get past Karo Murat this Saturday night. The 48-year-old displayed his usual calm demeanor during the pre-fight press conference ahead of his IBF light-heavyweight world title clash at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City this weekend.

Over the past few weeks there has been speculation linking the Philadelphia legend with a potential matchup against the mercurial Mayweather, pitting two boxing greats against one another in a fight that would certainly generate global interest. Despite the obvious weight differences, Hopkins has looked to clear up talk of a fight between the two boxing icons, admitting that it is something which has been put to him.

“Well, first of all I had no conversations, but it was a conversation said to me, and that’s why I responded,” said Hopkins. “And when I realized that there is a fight that they owe him in May of next year, and whether I’m willing or can I make 160, and I said, well, if I have that much time, a guy like me, the way I live and the way I keep my body right, even six pounds from fight night next week, sure,” he said.

“They didn’t act like they were joking, and we’re talking powerful people. So I’m sitting back saying, “Okay, hey, you know,” because no one else is going to beat Floyd Mayweather in their 20s and even in their early 30s. (more…)

European Heavyweight Champion Dereck Chisora gets to do an Italian job on “unbeaten” Italian challenger Matteo Modugno at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday 30th November.
