Niño ready for Mayol

One month before the mandatory fight between Omar Niño and Rodel Mayol for the WBC light flyweight championship, Niño complied with the pre-weigh-in mandated by the World Boxing Council. Today at noon, in Guadalajara, his hometown, Niño Romero weighed 52.000 kilograms, which means that he is in a weight that is more than optimum, as he is only three kilograms above the limit of his division. The WBC allows fighters to have a maximum overweight of 5 kilograms thirty days prior to the bout. “I am very motivated, mainly because my Promoter Hector Garcia has just told me that Mayol will be ready to fight me on the agreed date.” The battle between Niño and Mayol, scheduled to take place on February 27th, very likely in Mexico City, has been confirmed by the representative of the Filipino fighter a few hours after the WBC issued an ultimatum.

I feel as though I’m Mexican since the public has treated me very well. I think I can do good fights for the people.” Acosta is hoping to defend his belt in March in Monterrey, Nuevo León against an opponent to be named. More photos…

Williams pulls out of Chisora fight

Danny Williams has withdrawn from his British Heavyweight title defense against Derek Chisora at Wembley Arena on February 13 citing that he has a viral infection. Promoter Frank is now in talks with two boxers who hold wins over Williams to face Chisora instead on the huge Night of the Champions show. Williams caused confusion last week when after accepting to fight Chisora – who replaced the injured Sam Sexton – he then failed to turn up at a press conference to announce the Chisora bout, leaving his manager Micky Helliet to say that Williams “needed some time to get his head around the change.” However, Williams confirmed last Friday that he was going ahead with the fight against the unbeaten puncher. “It’s very disappointing and frustrating after last week’s antics for Danny to once again pull out of the fight leaving Derek in the lurch,” said Warren.
