Lane: Chris will dominate Pacquiao / Roach: Manny wants a knockout

Freddie Roach and Tim Lane, trainers for undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri and defending WBO welterweight champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao hosted an international media conference call Thursday to discuss Saturday’s PPV clash at the Venetian Macao.

Tim Lane: When we were offered the Manny Pacquiao fight, I believe this isn’t as tough a fight as the Ruslan (Provodnikov) fight. Styles make fights and Pacquiao being a lefty, and what he brings to the table, I do not find that to be as challenging as it was Ruslan. So I believe that Chris will dominate Pacquiso more so than he did with Ruslan…with two eyes this time.

Freddie Roach: Manny is punching better than ever and him coming back down to a better weight for him, instead of 147 he’s fighting at 144, this fight. He’s a better puncher at that weight and we’re gonna have our first knockout in a while…he feels the press has downplayed him a little bit because he hasn’t knocked anyone out lately. He wants to get that fire back and he wants a knockout. This is the first time he ever told me that we will knock this guy out.

[on Floyd Mayweather] Sometimes we have to tell Manny not to beat Algieri up too bad because then Mayweather’s just going to run a little bit more. He’s scared of us now, and he’s going to be scared of us after we destroy this guy. So Mayweather, you know, show some balls and step up to the plate.

Jennings waiting for Stiverne-Wilder winner

Undefeated heavyweight contender, Bryant “By-By” Jennings (19-0, 10 KOs) is waiting patiently as he is next in line to face the winner of Bermane Stiverne (24-1, 21 KOs) vs. Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32 KOs). Stiverne, who is the current WBC champion, will battle Wilder at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on January 17, 2015. Jennings, who’s next in line, passed on a HBO date in November as he wanted to wait for the opportunity to fight for the title.

“I could have fought this month but my mind is set on fighting for the WBC world title,” said Jennings, “I worked my way to the top of the WBC rankings and now it’s time for me to make my mark in history. Stiverne or Wilder…I don’t care who it is, I’ll be ready to fight either one of them. My promoters, Gary Shaw, Antonio Leonard and I, are all on the same page. We want that WBC title!” (more…)

Cleverly-Bellew heats up at press conference

Photo: Lawrence Lustig

Nathan Cleverly and Tony Bellew locked horns once again at today’s press conference – and both men predicted KO wins ahead of their rematch on Saturday at the sold-out Echo Arena in Liverpool, live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and AWE in the USA. The bitter rivals addressed the media next door to the venue where they have met before and will meet again this weekend, and with the pair packing Cruiserweight power on Merseyside this time around, they are both in no doubt that the stakes couldn’t be higher for their long-awaited second clash.

“When you punch you are at your most vulnerable and I only need one punch to land, just one,” said Bellew. “I am technically better than him. He’s not that good, he’s actually pretty poor technically, and I can’t see how he can outbox me. The only thing he has got is that he could outwork me, but like I say, if you just want to work with me and fire shots at me, you’ll be going to sleep. I’m not going to die going down the stretch and if that’s what he is hoping for, he is very, very wrong.” (more…)

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Future Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr was in Australia recently as a guest of Newcastle businessman Richard Claut and to open the One World Boxing Gymnasium. Jones commented that former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine could upset boxing’s pound for pound best, Floyd Mayweather Jr., after the controversial Australian’s scored an upset split twelve round points decision over WBC #2 Sergey Rabchenko.

“Of course he would have a shot at him,” Jones said. “I mean, Mayweather would consider Mundine as old and out of his prime, so he would take that shot, but he’d be making a big mistake because Mundine is the kind of guy who could give him the fight of his life. Mundine is not a dumb fighter at all. Sometimes he takes more damage than he has to. With Mayweather, he would be the bigger fighter and he could afford to take Floyd’s power shots.”

WBA #13 Mundine has stated he would also welcome a chance to fight WBC #1 Saul Alvarez.

Klitschko-Briggs a possibility

Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko may face nemesis Shannon Briggs in his next fight. “I want what the fans want, also Briggs,” stated Klitschko. In a poll by German media giant BILD, 72% of respondents stated they want to see Klitschko face Briggs and Wlad’s manager Bernd Bönte told RTL that Klitschko-Briggs “isn’t entirely excluded.”

The 42-year-old Briggs, who is currently rated WBA #7, has been stalking the Klitschko around the globe, twice confronting him in the gym, at press conferences, at a restaurant and even on the open sea, generating millions of views on YouTube in the process. Last week in Germany Briggs disrupted Wladimir’s press training, but was prevented by security from direct contact with the champ.
