Katsidis, Guererro Quick Quotes

By Andreas Hale

On today’s conference call featuring Michael Katsidis, Robert Guererro and James Kirkland, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer announced that due to Juan Manuel Marquez status being up in the air, April 9th’s bout between Katsidis and Guerrero may be an interim bout for both the WBO and WBA lightweight titles that Marquez holds.

Katsidis: (On taking on another top level fighter after losing to Marquez)
“Why not? It’s for a world title and this is what I’m in the game for. You want to achieve what you can while you are fighting. If the opportunity is there you take it. This is what I do, I fight. I’m not here for a holiday.”

(On When He Overcome The Loss To Marquez)
“(I got over the loss) That night. You get the results and you’re back at it again. I’m happy that I’m fighting again against the #1 lightweight in the world. I’m very happy to hear that this may be for the interim title.”

Guerrero: “It’s going to be a great fight. I’m excited about the fight. This is the first time I’ve been in an actual camp (note: Guerrero has moved his training camp away from home to Las Vegas). You’re going to see a whole different Robert Guerrero. I’m pleased with how training camp is going and everything is falling into place. My thing is to be 100% focused and doing what I have to do to prepare for the fight. I can’t wait to come out and put on a show and showcase a whole new Robert Guerrero.”

Kirkland: “I have a desire for boxing that is unbelievable to the point that I know that I’m going to make it because I now have positive people around me. I know I’ll be world champion. It’s just my drive and desire to fight that will get me there. I’m a true champion because I’ve overcome jail and I know what it takes to win and be a champion. When my time comes I will be world champion.

Namus-Muñoz result changed

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The Uruguayan Boxing Federation decided on Monday to declare a no contest in Saturday’s bout in Montevideo, Uruguay, between Uruguayan Chris “Bombon Asesino” Namus (14-1, 6 KOs) and Spaniard Loly Muñoz (9-8-1, 6 KOs) after a very controversial majority decision win by the local boxer. Both fans and the press alike expressed outrage saying that Munoz had a ‘clear superiority’ throughout the fight and the outcome ‘hurt not only the credibility in the judges but the whole of Uruguayan boxing,’ prompting the government, through the ministry of Turisimo and Sports, to request the change.

Two of the three judges scored for Namus by 97-93 and 96-95 and a third had it a draw. The 23-year-old Namus is one of the country’s sports idols and holds the WPBF female light welterweight title.

Pacman/Mayweather lawsuit update

Today, a Nevada federal district court denied a bid to dismiss Manny Pacquiao’s defamation lawsuit. Pacquiao sued Oscar de la Hoya, Golden Boy’s CEO Richard Schaefer, and Floyd Mayweather, and others for falsely accusing him of taking performance enhancing drugs. The defendants responded to the lawsuit by asking the judge to dismiss it, saying their statements were merely opinions. A federal judge disagreed, and the case will now go forward.

Pacquiao is represented by Daniel Petrocelli and David Marroso of Los Angeles-based O’Melveny & Myers. Petrocelli said, ” We are extremely pleased with the Court’s decision. Manny is looking forward to his day in court and to put an end to these irresponsible accusations.”

Maybe this is why his manager wants to have him fight again, in June, just three months before our scheduled fight in Poland. But I wonder if this will actually happen”-said Tomasz Adamek (43-1, 28 KOs), preparing for his upcoming fight against Kevin McBride (35-8, 29 KOs) in Pennsylvania and sharing his thoughts about what happened in Cologne and why upcoming months will decide which Klitschko brother he will fight in his native country.
