Green: I want to destroy Jones

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green is confident that he will destroy challenger Roy Jones Jr. when they clash on Wednesday at the Acer Arena, Homebush, Sydney, NSW, Australia. With a capacity attendance of 20,000 fight fans Green has promised not only to defeat Jones but make Jones’ first professional fight outside the USA the biggest mistake he has made in his professional career. “I want to destroy him,” proclaimed Green. ”I picture his legs wobbling and me delivering the KO punch. I see him unconscious on the canvas. He’s slumped on the canvas. I picture him asleep on the canvas. His corner runs into the ring, mine run into the ring. I see them picking him up and mine lifting me onto their shoulders – after I make sure he’s all right. I don’t want to just defeat Roy Jones Jr. I want to destroy him!”

Q&A: Yuri Foreman

By Robert Coster

Last November 14th, Yuri Foreman made history by winning the WBA junior middleweight title over favored, experienced titleholder Daniel Santos. Indeed, Foreman became the first Israeli(and first Jewish boxer in twenty years) to become a pro boxing champion. Also unique the fact that Yuri is to be ordained in the coming year as a rabbi. A compelling story for boxing and a reward for a young man, born in Belarus, raised in Israel and residing in Brooklyn; one who pursued a dream that seemed very improbable when he first landed in New York, speaking no English and coming from a country where professional boxing is almost in-existent. The congenial Yuri Foreman shares his thoughts with Fightnews about his path to the top. (more…)

Greenidge: Green will KO Jones

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Danny Green’s American sparring partner Anthony “Ice” Greenidge has predicted a win for the Australian over boxing great Roy Jones Jr. The New Yorker has worked as a sparring partner to Antonio Tarver, Arthur Abraham and Jermain Taylor and says Jones will not know what hit him on Wednesday at the Acer Arena, Homebush, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Greenidge said. “No offense intended, but Danny doesn’t fight like your typical white boy,” he said. ”They tend to be straight up and walk forward and throw one-two. But Danny can move when he wants to move and he also has the ability to throw punches when he wants to. Danny Green will knock Roy Jones out. He punches too hard and too consistently. Roy Jones Jr won’t know what’s hit him.”

Unbeaten Japanese southpaw Koki Kameda (22-0, 14 KOs), 112, captured the WBC flyweight belt as he was awarded a unanimous decision over compatriot defending champ Daisuke Naito (35-3-3, 22 KOs), 112, on Sunday in Saitama, Japan. The official tallies were as follows: Hubert Minn (US) and Daniel Van de Wiele (Belgium) both 117-111, and Max DeLuca (US) 116-112, all in favor of Kameda, twelve years his junior at 23. The referee was Hector Afu (Panama), who controlled the fast-moving pair very well. It was not a good fight, as it was quite different from what people had wished to watch with high expectations. Kameda, who had boldly predicted a KO victory within the first three rounds, kept retreating and circling to show negative but effective counterpunching all the way, though Naito remained aggressive, stalking the elusive challenger.

In the exact type of fight card that typifies what ShoBox: The New Generation has been about since its inception in July 2001, one highly regarded prospect was upset and another was unveiled Saturday in a pair of exciting slugfests on a special edition of ShoBox on SHOWTIME®. The main event was won by Martin Honorio, a decided underdog, who outworked, outpunched and, ultimately, outclassed previously undefeated John Molina en route to winning an impressive, lopsided 10-round decision and the vacant North American Boxing Federation (NABF)/North American Boxing Organization (NABO) 135-pound titles.

Fightwriter: Molina-Honorio

By Graham Houston

Every so often a prospect comes along who has the punching power and aggressive style that gets fans excited, and John Molina, the unbeaten lightweight from Covina, CA, fits the mould. Molina’s trainer, Joe Goossen, says he sees something of Rafael Ruelas and Diego Corrales — world champions he trained — in Molina. “He’s tall like they were and a natural puncher,” Goossen said from his Los Angeles gym on Thursday. “I’ve had him starting faster. The way we train, he’s ready to go as soon as that bell rings. In the gym he’s been hurting welterweights and junior welterweights, and I’ve had him wearing 16-ounce gloves because even with 14-ounce gloves he’s been wrecking guys.” (more…)

Bouziane retains Euro title

By Paolo Consiglio

2004 Olympian Malik Bouziane (13-1, 1 KOs), a Frenchman of Algerian origin, caused one of the big upsets of the year in March when he soundly outpointed Ian Napa in London to win the European bantamweight title. After a narrow but well-deserved victory against Carmelo Ballone, he defended his crown for the second time on Thursday evening at Les Pennes-Mirabeau, Bouches-du-Rhône, France, by scoring a dominant twelve-round unanimous decision over Italian champion Emiliano Salvini (13-9-1, 2 KOs). Bouziane gave another good display of boxing skills moving smoothly side to side, switching his stance back and forth and piling up points with nifty-jabbing and counter right hands. Salvini was able to get into some middle rounds on sheer effort but overall seemed to have no answer for the champion’s superior speed and footwork. The Italian gamely kept coming forward throughout the twelve rounds but looked out of his depth for long stretches of the bout even if there was a frustrating sense in his corner that he was allowing himself to be outworked. With Salvini increasingly discouraged, Bouziane easily cruised to a wide points victory on two scorecards (119- 109 and 118-111) while the third judge someway had it much closer (115-113). (more…)

Jackiewicz gets by Rodriguez

By Alexey Sukachev

Polish welterweight Rafal Jackiewicz (35-8-1, 18 KOs) made a leapfrog move from European scene to the world one with a controversial unanimous decision over Dominican Delvin Rodriguez (24-4-2, 14 KOs) in the IBF final eliminator moments ago at Hala MOSiR in Elk, Poland. Fighting in front of a roaring crowd, the Polish boxer started the fight behind a tight guard with the successful use of the crouching style. Rodriguez, however, was able to adjust himself to the awkward boxing style of his foe and started to pepper him with the jab. Jackiewicz, on the other hand, found a hole in Dominican’s defense for his right hand and scored frequently with it all fight long. In round five, the local hero wobbled Rodriguez with a short right once again, but in the sixth Rodriguez paid back in painful style, dropping Jackiewicz (WBA/IBF #4, WBO #6, WBC #11) on an accumulation of punches. The Pole was very lucky to survive the rest of that stanza. After the seventh round, also in Rodriguez’ favor, Jackiewicz caught a second wind and turned back the tide. Both fighters gave their all at the end of the contest with the Dominican (IBF #3) being more effective and more active of two. That, however, didn’t prevent him from losing his second fight in a row, as all three judges saw it in favor of the Polish contender: 114-112, 115-112 and an astonishing 117-116. Fightnews saw the fight differently, as a close 113-114 victory for Delvin Rodriguez. (more…)

Oleydong Sithsamerchai (33-0,12 KOs) won a majority decision over Juan Palacios (26-3, 21 KOs) to unify the WBC strawweight title on Friday at Tesco-Lotus Superstore in Rungsit, Pathumthani, Thailand. During the first four rounds, the Thai fighter effectively displayed his counter-attack tactic to frustrate the Nicaraguan’s aggression and dominated 40-36, 40-36, 39-36 as the score announcement. The uncut Palacios was also deducted a point from an accidental headclash in round three. Then, it was a close affair as Palacios speeded his assault but the better man was Oleydong who still lead 79-74, 78-74, 77-75 after round eight from his effective counterpunches. From round nine, the show little by little turned to the Nicaraguan who tirelessly stalked the local hero and obviously gained back the score but it was too late for him to capture the WBC crown. Scores were Franz Marti: 115-114, Jae-bong Kim: 116-114 and Benjamin Rendon: 114-114. Oleydong successfully unified the WBC 105lb title and kept his crown for the fourth time.
