Fury to Chisora: Grow up!

"I apologise for saying that I would kill him"

An apologetic Tyson Fury has called on Dereck Chisora to “grow up” and start acting like a real man ahead of their British and Commonwealth heavyweight title fight on Saturday night at Wembley Arena. Chisora was pulled out of Monday’s press conference by promoter Frank Warren because of the harsh comments Tyson made in the middle of a heated media call last week but challenger Tyson just sees that as a lame excuse.

“Chisora can’t speak for himself, he’s like a puppet – he needs a puppet master to do the talking for him because he hasn’t got the brains to talk for himself. They pulled out of our press conference because of what I said last week and yet James DeGale gave George Groves a relentless amount of abuse leading up to their fight and Groves never missed a press conference,” says Fury.

This was in response to recent comments from Tarver’s trainer Jimmy Williams who had recently labelled Green “Primitive”.

Legendary trainer Williams said four time world light heavyweight champion Tarver was a technician compared to the rudimentary Green. “He has the will but he doesn’t have the skill,” Williams said. (more…)

Rogelio Espino has been, for the past decade, Panama’s top promoter and manager. His company, Promociones y Eventos del Istmo, has guided the career of six world champions and promoted 40 title bouts. Espino accompanied his boxer Celestino “Pelenchin” Caballero to Argentina to challenge WBA featherweight champion Jonathan Victor Barros on July 2nd, in Barros’ hometown of Mendoza. Barros retained his title via a very controversial split decision even though he was knocked down twice (in the first and ninth round) in spectacular fashion. “The verdict against Pelenchin was simply incomprehensible and bad judging is one of the biggest problems of boxing today,” says the measured and always courteous Espino. Fightnews sat down with Rogelio Espino to discuss the Caballero-Barros controversial fight and its aftermath. (more…)

Huck, Garay speak

“This was a great win for me,” said Marco Huck (33-1, 24 KOs) after defending his WBO Cruiserweight Title in dramatic fashion on Saturday night, knocking out Hugo Garay (34-6, 18 KOs) in round ten. “It was the first time my future wife and my mother were ringside, so I really wanted to impress them. Garay was extremely tough, he just kept coming at me. But I wanted to please my family and my great fans. I was too strong for Garay but I have to give him credit – he was a very, very tough opponent. Now I will get married as world champion. What more can you ask for?”

In a slugfest, WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (33-1, 24 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over Hugo Garay (34-6, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the Olympia Eissportzentrum in Munich, Germany. After a highly charged pre-fight build-up, the fighters went right at each other and Huck sent Garay to the deck, however he wasn’t seriously hurt. In round three, Huck was deducted a point for hitting behind the head. The brutal back and forth action continued until round ten when Huck knocked down Garay with a right hand and referee Luis Pabon waved it off. Time was 1:10.

European light heavyweight champion Eduard Gutknecht (22-1, 9 KOs) outpointed Lorenzo Di Giacomo (41-5-1, 18 KOs) over twelve one-sided rounds by scores of 119-107, 120-105, 119-107

Unbeaten middleweight Dominik Britsch (24-0, 9 KOs) scored a TKO over Ryan Davis (23-9-3, 9 KOs) at 1:15 of the ninth round. After a Britsch knockdown, Davis beat the count and seemed OK to continue, but the fight was waved off.

Unbeaten heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (13-0, 6 KOs) was victorious after a sluggish decision win over Maksym Pediura (13-2-1, 11 KOs).

In a battle of light-punching middleweights, unbeaten Marcos Nader (11-0, 1 KO) again went the distance, taking an eight round nod over Gaetano Nespro (18-8, 2 KOs).

A fresh influx of new talent was on display Friday night in the cozy confines of Royal Oak Music Hall, a first-time show by Bad Boy Promotions. Bad Boy’s Royal Oak gym on the west side of Detroit’s spine and main thoroughfare, Woodward Avenue, featured a video displayed what must be a record amount of heavy bags, at least two dozen by my count. The Albanian-American promotion group brought in and featured the New York-based Albanian cruiserweight Stivens Bujaj (now 5-0), who was matched with a local pro-debuter Covan Graham. At first, it looked to be a dreadful match, with Graham conducting a track meet as much as the insider perimeter of the ropes would allow. But matchmaker Carlos Llinas knew what he was doing, when Graham, dropped by a huge left hook in the second (ring siders, including this one, were amazed when Graham beat the count), not only got up, but fought back valiantly, and made a real fight of it.
