Photo: Undefeated prospect Robert Marroquin (12-0, 9 KOs) will be sporting the colors of the Dallas Cowboys when he steps into the ring in front of his hometown tomorrow night on the Pacquiao-Clottey undercard. “This fight has been my biggest challenge,” Marroquin said yesterday. “More so the media and all the interviews this time than my opponent, who I’m not looking past. I’m nervous about fighting in front of so many people but it feels great to be able to fight at home on such a big card.” Marroquin faces Samuel Sanchez (4-1-1) tomorrow night. “He’s taller than my previous opponents,” says Marroquin. “He’s a decent fighter, with good hand speed, but my experience should make the difference.”

Roach & DeJesus: Trainers talk

Story & photos by  Chris Cozzone

As the boxing cliché goes, styles make fights. On Saturday night, we’ll find out if that applies to trainers.

On paper it’s a mismatch. Freddie Roach, who pilots Manny Pacquiao, is, arguably the world’s best-known, best-paid trainer. Backed by a star-studded resume, Roach would be a 10-to-1 favorite over the experienced, albeit much lesser known Lenny DeJesus, chief trainer for Joshua Clottey, if the match-up made the betting lines . . .

Katsidis-Mitchell London Presser

WBO #1 rated lightweight Kevin Mitchell has promised an old fashioned East End tear up when he faces WBO interim world beltholder Michael Katsidis on May 15 in London.

Promoter Frank Warren is currently in negotiation with the venue, with the ExCeL Arena also under consideration. “It would be a dream come true to fight at Upton Park,” said unbeaten Mitchell at a press conference to officially announce the fight today. “The east end loves a nice little punch up and I’ll give them one when I fight Katsidis. He’s a great fighter but I’m confident I’ll knock him out. He better bring a good cutman because I’m planning on busting him up real bad. It will be a proper tear up on the night, then we’ll have a good old knees up afterwards.” (more…)

Lemieux-Smichet on 4/3

Lemieux was able to reel off twenty straight knockouts before being forced to go the distance in winning the Canadian crown versus Jason Naugler.
