Unbeaten middleweight Sebsatian Zbik (26-0, 10 KOs) wants to make his dream come true on Saturday. The WBC #2 rated 160-pounder collides with #1 rated Domenico Spada (29-1, 14 KOs) for the WBC interim world title on the huge “Universum Champions Night” on the evening before the German Grand Prix in the new ring°arena. Zbik, who grew up in eastern part of Germany in Neubrandenburg, says he gets the power for his fights out of mother nature. He spends a lot of time fishing, as evidenced by the catch in his last fishing trip in Norway. “I love being on the sea or sitting at the waterside of a small lake,” said Zbik. “I travel a lot. So I need this silence and wonderful nature around me. That gives me enough power for my next tough job.” It will be anything but peaceful in the ring this weekend when “Boxing meets Formula 1″ at the famous Nürburgring Speedway. And, if Zbik is victorious, reigning WBC/WBO world champion Kelly Pavlik would certainly feel the breathe of German fighters in his neck as there already the German champions Felix Sturm (WBA world champion) and Arthur Abraham (IBF world champion) in the middleweight division. Zbik would make three.

A hot Wednesday in Houston, Texas got hotter as former undisputed lightweight world champion Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz and former IBF junior lightweight world champion Paulie “Magic Man” Malignaggi each guaranteed a win during a press conference announcing their August 22nd showdown on HBO. The bout will be a twelve-rounder fought at jr. welterweight poundage. “Yes I had a tough loss to Ricky Hatton, at my best I’m a hard to fighter to beat and at times I feel I’m inconsistent,” stated Brooklyn native Paulie. “All said and done I was making excuses in the losses that I had, but now both of us have two losses and that means somebody is going to get three losses and it isn’t going to be me.” Diaz had this to say to the media. “I’ve been training for a few weeks and now that the press conference is here I know the fight is for real and now we can get down to business. The last fight hurt my pride on how I was stopped in the fight against Juan Manuel Marquez and I said to myself ‘whoever they put in front of me next is going to get it.’ Paulie is a good fighter, but I’m a great fighter. I’m testing the waters at jr. welterweight and lightweight to see whichever is good for me. I would like to thank Houston and all the fans for their support of me and I hope they come out and support me like they have in the past.” (more…)

Experts pick Darchinyan!

If the media members who participated in the SHOWTIME Media Prediction Poll have called it correctly, Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan will walk out of the ring a five-time world champion with a victory over Joseph “King Kong” Agbeko. A triumph also would make Darchinyan a three-division world champ – at 112, 115 and 118 pounds. Agbeko (26-1, 22 KOs), the IBF bantamweight champion, will defend against Darchinyan (32-1, 26 KOs) in the main event this Saturday live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the west coast) from the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. The matchup between two of the hardest-hitting, pound-for-pound boxers in the world could end with one punch. Both fighters have whopping knockout percentages. Agbeko has won inside the distance 81 percent of the time while Darchinyan has won by knockout 76 percent of the time. One thing is certain: Raging Bull certainly didn’t take a tune-up in King Kong. Still, Darchinyan was a landslide winner in the SHOWTIME poll, garnering 22 of the 28 predictions. Most predicted a knockout for the Australian-based Armenian bomber, while only three predicted the fight would go to the scorecards.
