Joshua pulls out of July 18 fight

Unbeaten 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Heavyweight Anthony Joshua (13-0, 13 KOs) has pulled out of a July 18 fight at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. No opponent had been named for the fight. Joshua will now focus on a “major title bout” on September 12 at The O2 in London. He is rumored to be facing Mariusz Wach.

Replacing Joshua on July 18 is former middleweight contender Martin Murray in his second fight in the super middleweight division. The card also features a pair of world title fights as Scott Quigg defends his WBA “regular” super bantamweight title against former IBF champion Kiko Martinez and WBA “regular” lightweight champion Darleys Perez defends against Anthony Crolla.

Photo: Leonso Nunez

Lightweight Jose “Chon” Zepeda (23-0, 20 KOs) says he’s ready to rumble when he comes to England and face Terry Flanagan (27-0, 10 KOs) for the vacant WBO world title on Saturday 11th July at the Manchester Velodrome. With under two weeks to go until the big showdown between the undefeated fighters, Zepeda is adding the finishing touches to his training as he faces the biggest fight of his career against the Manchester ace in his first fight outside of the US and Mexico. With Oscar De La Hoya’s former trainer Robert Alcazar in his corner, Zepeda says he’s ready to win either by KO or the distance.

“This is my first title shot, I’m very happy and I’ll be ready. Flanagan’s a great fighter with a good record and he’s doing something right, I believe that I’m a great fighter also and my record says it. I think that this will be a fantastic fight and we’re ready to go the distance or if it ends fast,” said Zepeda. (more…)

David Itskowitch on Cotto-Geale catchweights, the Canelo fight and Floyd Mayweather

By Arvin Nundloll

RocNation Sports COO, David Itskowitch, spoke to FightNews about Miguel Cotto’s victory at the Barclays Center, his next possible opponent (Canelo or Mayweather) and his opinion on the catchweight for the Cotto-Geale fight. When asked by FightNews about how he felt the fight had gone, Itskowitch couldn’t have been happier, especially with Grammy nominated artist, Big Sean appealing to a new boxing fanbase.

The show from top to bottom was great. We had a great crowd and we had an energetic crowd and great fights with a great result in the main event. The crowd to me looked like we had a younger skewing than what you’d normally see at a boxing event which is one of our goals, to attract a younger audience and I thought the entertainment outside of the ring was excellent. I thought Big Sean went over very well, I thought it worked and I thought it people bought into it, overall the event was a great success. (more…)

Oscar: I have decided to stay retired

Boxing Hall of Famer Oscar De La Hoya has announced that he will not be going back into the ring. The Golden Boy, now a successful promoter, had recently indicated that he might come back for a bout against Floyd Mayweather or Gennady Golovkin.

Oscar released the following statement:

Over the last six months I’ve had a front row seat as Golden Boy fighters including Canelo Alvarez, Bernard Hopkins, Lucas Matthysse, Jorge Linares and David Lemieux have stepped into the ring and shown what boxing should be all about — a commitment to fight the best, to respect the sport and to put the fans first.

As a professional athlete and someone who has spent almost his entire life in boxing, not a day goes by when I don’t think about coming back — and the performances of these Golden Boy fighter has only added to my desire to return to the ring.

But I am retired, and after speaking to my family and following a great deal of introspection, I have decided to stay retired.

However, I do so with knowledge that many fighters today still pride themselves on the same principals that I adhered to throughout my career. It is now through boxers like those I mentioned and dozens of other Golden Boy Promotions fighters that those values live on.

To the many thousands of fans who over the last couple of weeks encouraged me to come out of retirement and fight again, I thank you. You can rest assured that I will spend the rest of my days around this wonderful sport, even though those days won’t be spent inside the ropes.

– Oscar

Bradley talks about taking Vargas’ “O”

By Miguel Maravilla

Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley regained the WBO welterweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten WBA 140lb world champion Jessie Vargas on Saturday night, but not without some anxious moments in the closing seconds. Bradley was reeling around the ring after being rocked by Vargas when the bout was mistakenly waved off at the 10-second warning.

[On the fight with Jessie Vargas] “We knew this fight was going to be tough. We knew Jessie was young, hungry, determined, and I wanted to put that 1 on his resume really bad. We did that.”

[On the controversial ending] “The ref made a mistake in the fight. I was coherent. He threw a left hook to my body and came through with that shot. He came close and I grabbed a hold of him.

“I said ‘What the beep? What’s he doing? Lord have mercy.’ I can see them stopping the Provodnikov fight, but this? I’m not even hurt, but he thought he heard the bell. I was like ‘How can you stop that fight?'” (more…)

Vargas and Morales irate at bout’s botched ending

By Miguel Maravilla

Hopelessly behind on points, Jesse Vargas staggered Timothy Bradley with a huge right hand with moments left in their WBO welterweight title fight on Saturday night. Unfortunately, referee Pat Russell mistakenly waved off the bout at the ten-second signal causing confusion and controversy as Vargas thought he’d scored a miracle TKO. However, instead of victory, Vargas was deprived of a few precious seconds to possibly finish Bradley and the bout went to the scorecards.

Vargas and his trainer Erik Morales discussed what went down.

Jessie Vargas: “They didn’t let us finish the twelve round title fight. Normally a fight is 36 minutes and it was a little under that, right when he was out on his feet the referee stepped in waved the fight. Unfortunately, they came up to me and said they made a mistake. I will fight this as much as I can to get the decision overruled to a no-contest….he stopped the fight! You can’t come back and say we made a mistake. I hope the California State Commission can give me some justice.” (more…)

“Ruenroeng showed he is the best flyweight in the world by easily outpointing Casimero,” said Chaichotchuang. “Amant knocked down Casimero two times, in rounds two and seven, but had a point deducted in round eleven in an exciting twelve round fight. Ruenroeng would also defeat the WBC champion Roman Gonzalez and WBA/WBO champion Juan Estrada. Thailand has a great champion and is very proud of Amnat Ruenroeng.”
