Pacquiao attacked in Hollywood

By Nick Giongco

A white male tried to hit Manny Pacquiao after the Filipino boxing star hosted a sumptuous lunch Sunday at Kabuki, a high-end Japanese restaurant located on Vine Street in Hollywood, California. David Sisson, Pacquiao’s personal assistant said the incident took place at around 3 p.m. at the parking basement of the establishment.

“The man attacked Manny and one of his friends, (Fil-Am) Edward Lura, was able to prevent the man from hitting Manny,” said Sisson on Sunday night.

“He was fast and he almost got Manny,” said Sisson.

Pacquiao did not call the police and just told his security staff to let the man go even as he continued to threw profanities on the 37-year-old boxing icon.

Pacquiao is in Los Angeles training for his April 9 showdown with Tim Bradley in Las Vegas.

Pro boxing is returning to Haiti on Friday as local favorite Evens “The Sun City Kid” Pierre (25-1, 17 KOs) is defending his WBA Fedelatin lightweight belt against Tomas Mendez (21-6, 14 KOs) of the Dominican Republic.

Results from St. Petersburg, FL

Jacksonville, FL’s Juan Aguirre spoiled what was expected to be a homecoming for popular junior middleweight Ali Tareh Saturday, April 1 at the Bayfront Hilton in his hometown of St. Petersburg, FL. Headlining Mad Integrity Fight Sports’ “Bombs Away 5,” the main event boxers entered the ring for their eight round junior middleweight fight to a standing room only crowd, which packed the venue prior to the start of the first fight. A big ticket seller who had a large group of supporters on hand, Tareh took his time in the early going. Aguirre, a pressure fighter, looked to close the gap and connect with a hard shot upstairs. With seconds remaining in the opening stanza, Aguirre saw an opening and unleashed a devastating left left hook that knocked Tareh out cold at 2:59.

Aguirre is now 7-17-1 with 1 knockout. Tareh, who received a standing ovation upon returning to his feet, slides to 13-12-5 with 6 wins by knockout. (more…)

Manny Pacquiao Training Camp Q&A

BOB ARUM: This is a very interesting promotion as far as I’m concerned. A lot of people are concentrating on the new and improved Tim Bradley. Manny Pacquiao with his right arm now totally repaired – he has had that torn rotator cuff since before the De La Hoya fight. A lot of athletes are able to perform well with a torn rotator cuff – a lot of pitchers in the major leagues are able to perform well with it. Obviously now that it’s repaired, it is at full strength. Freddie will tell you that Manny is hitting harder with the right hand – even harder than with the left hand, so he is now going to be a real two-handed fighter which is very interesting. I think Tim Bradley’s big advantage is that he is going in with a game plan. I don’t think he had much of a game plan in the first two fights but certainly Teddy has given him one. I am very excited for my “NoTrump Undercard” with the young Hispanics contenders and I think it is resonating tremendously, particularly with the Hispanic community. I’ve done dozens of radio interviews and television programs with the Hispanic media and there is a lot of excitement.

How are tickets selling?

BOB ARUM: The Ticket situation is good. It is about what it was last time that Manny fought Bradley. There are approximately 2,000 tickets left and a lot of those will go in the last week. They are selling at a very good clip so if we don’t sell out we will have at least 14,000 people in the arena on April 9. I am still optimistic that they will all be gone by fight night. (more…)

Callum Smith aiming at September title shot

Unbeaten super middleweight contender Callum Smith destroyed Euro champ Hadillah Mohoumadi inside a round at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday night to land a shot at the WBC world super middleweight title. “I’d like to fight for the World title in September,” said Smith, “but if I have to wait then so be it. I’m only 25 and I am improving all the time. Every time I step up I win, so why not keep going?”

Promoter Eddie Hearn said that Smith would be ringside in Washington when Jack defends his title against Lucian Bute and DeGale meets his mandatory Rogelio Medina on April 30.

“Callum is the real deal,” said Hearn. “He’ll dominate the super middleweight division for years to come. He’s going to fight for the world title and he’s going to win it. He’s only going to get better and better. Badou Jack won’t want to fight Callum; he just demolished Mohoumadi – Jack won’t stand up to that force. He’s got freakish power and he’s a scary, scary man. He makes the weight easy so let him dominate this division now.”

Pabon: I stopped it to protect Theophane

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Jr. welterweight Ashley Theophane criticized the ninth round stoppage by referee Luis Pabon in Friday night’s fight with Adrien Broner. The veteran world championship referee from Puerto Rico spoke to Fightnews.com® about his decision to stop the fight.

“I stopped the fight due to the superiority of Broner, who had hurt Theophane in several rounds,” said Pabon. “Theophane had won only two rounds at most. He wasn’t fully KO’d, but was very weak. So I let him get hurt more? It is clear that after he was hurt by Broner, he pointed to me with his left hand that signifies ‘no more.’ In boxing, a boxer does not request time when he’s still fighting.”

Broner: If we do fight, he won’t be 50-0

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Adrien Broner took to the hallways of the DC Armory to express his satisfaction, not only with winning his bout with Ashley Theophane but with his comments towards Floyd Mayweather, Jr. As he met the media in the rear hallway of the almost 75-year-old facility, Broner celebrated the two victories that About Billion Promotions boxers had over TMT boxers with his entourage who surrounded the media in attendance.

“AB OVER TMT! AB ON TOP! What everybody got to say now?” Broner yelled as he entered the hallway. Once talk switched to his 9th round TKO over Theophane, Broner was more subdued.

“Any performance I can always do better,” Broner said. “We did exactly what we trained on in the gym — that was a lot of power shots and I perfected it and got him out of there in the ninth round.”

“A stoppage is a stoppage,” Broner continued. “Whether it is 30 seconds in the first round or 10 seconds before the end of the 12th round. A stoppage is a stoppage. Point blank. Period.” (more…)

Theophane disputes stoppage

Jr. welterweight Ashley Theophane says he doesn’t agree with the ninth round stoppage by referee Luis Pabon in Friday night’s fight with Adrien Broner.

“I thought the stoppage was premature because I thought I was in the fight. Me and Broner were going at it. It looked like he was starting to get tired because he started to move around and wasn’t able to stay there with me as much.

“I thought the fight was back and forth and I think the next four rounds would have been the same. No way should the fight have gotten stopped. It’s a shame the referee did that. I was telling the referee, ‘I’m okay, I’m okay.’ Then he waved it off. I don’t know what he was thinking.”

Pacquiao exhorts youth to enroll in ROTC

Boxing icon and Saranggani Rep. Emmanuel “Manny” D. Pacquiao yesterday called on the country’s college students to choose military service training among the courses offered under the mandatory National Training Service Program to prepare them to defend the country in case of external aggression. “Bravery and patriotism are characters in the heart of every Filipino. But the cause of defending one’s country also requires preparedness and skills to be able to succeed,” said Pacquiao, a voluntary reservist with the rank of lieutenant colonel in the AFP Reserve Force.

Now running for senator, Pacquiao issued a strong appeal to college students to take up Reserve Officers Training Corps program from among the four NTSP courses that they have to enroll in. A student is required to finish one NTSP course as a requisite for graduation. (more…)

Broner: I don’t care if we spar or if we fight, Floyd’s gotta see me

After his one-sided win over Ashley Theophane, four-division former world champion Adrian “The Problem” Broner called out former friend Floyd Mayweather seated at ringside.

“As ya’ll know I’be been going through a lot this whole week and for me to bottle everything up and come in here and get the job done, I want to give a pat on the back to myself!” said Broner.

“Ya’ll probably know about this. Somebody that I looked up to, somebody that I admire, took the chance to do an interview and just talked all bad about me. I don’t know how ya’ll look at that, but I don’t like it. I wasn’t gonna do this but I’m a man that burns shit from physical activity so me and Floyd, he’s gotta see me. I’m a man at the end of the day. And I come from the streets, the trenches man, from the bottom, from nothing. I’m talking about water and cornflakes. I come from nothing and I will NEVER let a man disrespect me like that! So he’s gotta see me. I don’t care if we spar or if we fight. Let’s get it on!”
