Arum: Distractions affected JuanMa

By Rey Colón -The Sport Press

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum went straight to the point and said that distractions in both his public life and personal life affected the performance of now former world champion Juan Manuel Lopez. “JuanMa” lost his unbeaten record and WBO belt in an eighth round TKO loss against Mexican Orlando Salido on Saturday at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon.

“The distractions did the job,” said Arum. “Look at Miguel Cotto, who has never been better since he left to train outside of Puerto Rico. And he doesn’t get out of shape between fights. That’s what happened to this guy….he was overweight. He was like 180 or 190 pounds when he was in the Philippines [for Manny Pacquiao's birthday party in December]. And I know that personal problems affected this boy. Boxing is a serious business and you have to be in great physical condition between fights, you have to have the best life between fights, and when you have training camp for a fight, like Cotto, you should leave the island.”

Tijuana, MX’s Jackie Nava (24-3-3, 11 KOs) and Ana Maria Torres (24-3-3, 14 KOs) put forth a great battle that ended in a draw at the World Trade Center of Boca Del Rio, Veracruz, Mexico, Saturday night in front of 10,000 fans. Official scores were 95-95 three times. Torres took control in the first couple of rounds of the action packed bout but then Nava found her rhythm and kept boxing. Soon, Torres’ nose began to bleed from the fourth round on from the constant jab that Nava kept landing while Nava’s left eye began to swell from the power punches she was receiving from the WBC super flyweight champion. The middle rounds were a toe to toe war with Nava showing better defense but Torres scoring with the harder punches as she looked for the knock out. The crowd in attendance rose to their feet for the last couple of rounds as both women gave their all to pull out the win. For more details and photos click here…

Ortiz, Berto Quotes

“Absolutely not,” new WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz responded to a question about Saturday’s fight being redemption for his loss to Marcus Maidana. “Maidana was never in my class. I never gave him respect, especially for not giving me a rematch. 147 lbs. is where I’m king. I want to thank Andre Berto for the opportunity. He is a real champion.”

Former champion Berto, who was having his right thumb examined after the fight, stated, “I just didn’t feel it tonight. I just couldn’t get off.”

In an exciting knockdown-filled affair, the welterweight debut of Victor Ortiz (29-2-2, 22 KOs) was a successful one as he dethroned previously unbeaten WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (27-1, 21 KOs) with a clear unanimous decision on Saturday night at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantuckett, Connecticut. Ortiz dropped Berto with a left hook in round one but it ruled as a slip by referee Michael Ortega. Later in the round he floored Berto again and this one counted. Berto knocked down an off balance Ortiz in round two. Ortiz rocked Berto again in round three and continued to dominate as Berto spent considerable time on the ropes absorbing punishment. In round six, Berto stayed in the center of the ring and dropped Ortiz with a big right hand, but during Berto’s follow-up attack Ortiz floored him! Things settled down after that. Referee Ortega deducted a point from Ortiz in round ten for a punch behind the head. Berto seemed gassed at the end. Scores were 115-110, 114-112, 114-111. For more details and photos click here…

WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (25-1, 17 KOs) won a six round technical decision over previously unbeaten European titleholder Paul McCloskey (22-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England. Khan was in control for the most part as awkward southpaw McCloskey made it an ugly fight. The bout was stopped in the sixth round after McCloskey suffered a vertical cut over the left eye from an accidental head clash. Scores were 60-54 on all cards. The McCloskey Team was furious about the stoppage and demanded a rematch. Khan said he won every round and McCloskey isn’t on his level, so no reason for a rematch. He is now eyeing a unification clash with WBC/WBO titlist Tim Bradley in July. For more details and photos click here…

“Dangerous” Dannie Williams dismantled Manuel Leyva, dropping him twice with overhand right hands in the first round of their WBC Continental Americas lightweight title tilt Friday night in St. Louis, Mo. Williams, improved his record to 17-1, 14 KOs, dictating the action throughout the short fight, drawing his challenger into exchanges and winning them with whistling counter punches. Leyva, now 18-3, 10 KOs, tried to hold his shorter competitor off with jabs, but left himself wide open in the middle of the first round, and Williams made him pay with a ripping overhand right. Leyva steadied himself in front of Steve Smoger, referee in this title fight, and was allowed him to continue. Williams approached his challenger again, waited for his opponent’s left hand to fall short, then delivered the knockout blow, completely flattening his opponent. Smoger immediately waved off the action, signaling for the doctor. Time was 1:45. Click here for full report

Goodman: I feel wonderful

By Bobby Goodman

I’m very happy to report that I’m now home after being released today. I feel wonderful and yes, I have had a new knee revision and a pacemaker installed in my now very bionic body.

The rehab for the knee is going very well and I should be teeing it up in a few weeks, and hitting them right down the middle as always. I’m a tough guy brought up in the sport I love and a little setback like that, can’t keep me on the deck.

I want to thank everyone for all of the prayers and well-wishers. The fact that I had a very strong corner with my family and friends all working hard to keep me in the fight, has resulted in a kayo for me after a rough start. I’m blessed and happy to be able to send you all this update.

It was more than fifteen years ago when then WBC Super Featherweight champion Gabriel Ruelas defended his title against Colombian Jimmy Garcia in a fight that would ultimately cost Garcia his life. The tragedy of that hot, fateful night in a Las Vegas ring, and its aftermath, has never been told – until now.

Mexican-born Araceli Martínez-Rose’s narrative in her new book, “Business of Pain” takes you, in great detail through the humble beginnings of Ruelas’ career as a young fighter, his rise to the world championship, and the devastating effect the Garcia tragedy had not only in his boxing career, but his personal life as well.

Lorenzo files protest

Middleweight world title challenger Giovanni Lorenzo has filed a protest with the WBA in regards to the actions of WBA judge Stefano Corozza during Lorenzo’s interim middleweight title fight against Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam held on April 2 in Le Cannet, France. During the course of the fifth round, Lorenzo knocked N’Dam N’Jikam through the ropes and onto the ring apron with a right uppercut. Following N’Dam N’Jikam’s fall onto the apron, two people are clearly seen attempting to help him back into the ring, one an unnamed photographer and the second was Corozza. According to WBA rules, a boxer can be disqualified if he is given help to get back to his feet either by a cornerman or third party and referee Hubert Earle was within his rights at this point to declare Lorenzo the winner.

Team Lorenzo also alleges an attempt by N’Dam N’Jikam’s team to illegally wrap his hands, a point which was only noticed by Lorenzo’s trainer, Ray Farrait, despite WBA judge Philippe Verbeke overseeing the proceedings.

Finally, Team Lorenzo questions why despite dropping N’Dam N’Jikam in the fifth round, both Corozza and judge Juan Manuel Perez scored the round 10-9 for Lorenzo as opposed to the standard 10-8 when a knockdown occurs. Lorenzo is insisting that the WBA Championship Committee grant an immediate title rematch against N’Dam N’JIkam.
