By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO #11, WBA #14 Jeff “The Hornet” Horn (9-0, 7 KOs) engaged in a torrid sparring session with WBC #4, WBA #4,IBF #10 Anthony “The Man” Mundine in 2014 with most observers agreeing the former London Olympian had got the better of the former WBA super middleweight champion. Mundine then rejected a $1 million offer for to fight Horn according to leading New Zealand promoter Dean Lonergan, who promotes Horn.

He showed power, skill and personality. He is a wonderful clean-cut kid and a great ambassador for the sport and we want to give him the platform to become a real sporting hero in Australia and New Zealand. (more…)

Martin Murray: This is going to be a war

“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth,” ring legend Mike Tyson once famously said. Promoter Rodney Berman says his fighter Martin Murray is planning to go to war with WBA/WBC interim middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin when they square off at the Salle des Étoiles concert hall in Monte-Carlo on Saturday. Murray will enter as a 30:1 underdog to the champion, who has recorded 18 straight knockouts.

“This is going to be a war and I’m willing to do anything it takes to become world champion,” Murray is quoted as saying. Berman believes that like with Tyson before, Golovkin’s opponents are psyched-out by GGG’s fearsome reputation long before they start trading punches, but he claims Murray has exhibited none of the anxiety so many of Golovkin’s other challengers have.

Rossy camp looking for big fight after win

By Jerry Glick at Ringside

Promoter Sal Musumeci of Final Forum Boxing presented “Championship Title Boxing” on Saturday in front of a packed house at Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY. Two vacant titles were won with the possibility of big things for the victors plus the headliners were televised live on the CBS Sports Network.

After New York heavyweight Derric Rossy’s win over previously unbeaten Akhror Muralimov, Musumeci said, “Let’s have a real American champion. He’s (Rossy) fought ten times more top ten fighters than (WBC heavyweight champion Deontay) Wilder. Tell Wilder to defend his title like a man, against Rossy. Let’s do it!” An exuberant Musumeci added that he also wants Klitschko to fight Rossy but that it did not matter who would be first: “Whoever wants it,” declared Musumeci.

Rossy, who was a bit more humble than his promoter, talked with FightNews about the performance of his opponent and his self. “I didn’t think he would cut the ring off as good as he did. He showed good movement and that’s when I knew I had to step it up, move around and throw more jabs. The kid has power. He was strong.” (more…)

Brian Minto will reportedly drop to cruiserweight to compete in the Super 8 cruiserweight tournament on March 28 at the Horncastle Arena in Christchurch, New Zealand. Minto attributes his bad showing against Joseph Parker last July to a number of problems, including a broken nose suffered the week of the fight and family issues back home. “I still regret taking that fight. I got injured and I didn’t tell anybody. I was beaten before I walked into the ring,” Minto told Stuff.co.nz. Other combatants include Israel Adesanya, Daniel “The Doberman” Ammann, Monty “Mad Dog” Filimaea and Lance “Buster” Bryant. Three additional fighters will be named.

Kerry Hope to resume career in Australia

Xcite Fight Promotions are delighted to announce the signing of former European middleweight champion Kerry Hope (20-7, 1 KO). Hope recently relocated to Brisbane and is under the tutelage of Gareth Williams. “Firstly, I’m very happy to have signed with Xcite Fight Promotions. I am looking forward to the next chapter in my career. I’d like a couple of fights to just shake off the rust and then move onto fights that can be easily made, such as Les Sherrington, Gunnar Jackson and Jarrod Fletcher. Of course my aim has to be the best middleweights in Australia, Daniel Geale and Sam Soliman, but realistically they are a few fights away.”

The 33 year old southpaw caused a major boilover in 2012 when he outpointed Grzegorz Proksa for the European crown. “That fight shows what I’m capable of with the right preparation and that I’m not fazed at all by taking big fights,” said Hope. (more…)

Rose camp not happy with referee’s quick stoppage

“He didn’t give me a chance but I feel he gave Jones a chance. I buzzed him and I had him going worse than he had me,” former world title challenger Brian Rose told Sky Sports after his fight with Carson Jones was abruptly stopped by referee Ian John-Lewis in round one on Saturday night. “I’m so annoyed at the referee’s decision, he stood in here 15 minutes before saying he’d give us both a chance if we were hurt. He didn’t give me a chance. I might have been hurt, I felt a buzz but I knew exactly where I was and I was about to start firing my shots back. That’s the way I fight, I cover up and let my opponents let their shots go. The referee should know that. I’m the sort of fighter who gets hit, covers up, and takes it on the gloves…that’s how I fight, he’s an experienced referee, he should know that. I hold my hands up, I was hurt, but so was he. I don’t think it should have been stopped. He caught me and I felt a buzz but Demetrious Andrade hit me 50 times like that. I demand a rematch. I want something done. He gave him a chance, why not give me a chance?”

Rose’s trainer Bobby Rimmer told Sky, “It’s the most ridiculous stoppage. He was hurt but when Ian John-Lewis grabbed him I thought ‘what’s he doing?’ I’m still flabbergasted. It’s terrible what’s happened. It’s not right.”

Flanagan wins by DQ in WBO eliminator

In a WBO lightweight title eliminator, WBO #7 rated Terry Flanagan (28-0, 10 KOs) won by tenth round disqualification against WBO #5 and WBO Euro champion Stephen Ormond (17-2, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall, in Wolverhampton, England. Flanagan frustrated Ormond with his nifty boxing tactics. Ormond tried to up the aggression, but was deducted a point for a headbutt in round nine and DQ’d after another headclash in round ten. Flanagan will face the winner of another WBO eliminator between #1 Juan Diaz and #2 Takahiro Ao for what is expected to be the vacant WBO belt after current champion Terence Crawford moves up in weight.

Middleweight Tommy Langford (12-0, 3 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Wayne Reed (11-10, 5 KOs). Langford dropped Wayne Reed twice in the fourth round, but Reed was up at the count of eight on both knockdowns, and in the next round Langford went for a ruthless finish. Time was 2:31. “It was an exciting fight and a great finish. Although I did get caught in there a bit, and that doesn’t usually happen to me, I showed some good skills and plenty of heart of firepower. I was especially pleased with my body punching and mixing up with head shots. He was a very tough and game kid and I’m very happy with the performance, but there is still plenty to work on.” (more…)

Stunner: Carson Jones scores TKO1 over Brian Rose

Okalahoma junior middleweight Carson Jones (37-10-3, 27 KOs) scored a shock first round TKO over former world title challenger Brian Rose (26-3-1, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, England. Currently unrated after losing badly in a title shot against WBO titleholder Demetrius Andrade last June, Rose was staggered by Jones in round one and the bout was very quickly waved off by referee Ian John-Lewis. Time was 2:27. Jones wins the vacant WBC International super welterweight title. The Rose camp was furious about the stoppage and wants a rematch.

Predictable result in the fight between unbeaten lightweight Scotty Cardle (17-0, 5 KOs) and Yordan Vasilev (16-40-2, 4 KOs). Cardle needed just 36 seconds to get the KO win.

Middleweight Tom Doran (14-0, 4 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Cello Renda (27-11-2, 12 KOs) in the final of Prizefighter Middleweights III. Time was 1:16. Both fighters were considered long shots. Doran wins the £32,000 Prizefighter winner’s check + a £2,000 bonus for the KO.

The future is now for Rossy, Muralimov

By Jerry Glick

It’s not unusual when two fighters who are about to face each other to talk about how a win will catapult the victor into a title shot or at least the top ten and the fight between Derric Rossy and Akhor Muralimov is no different. They both predict that a win may even put them into the same ring with Wladimir Klitschko. Fact is a win here means a move up the ladder, but how far remains to be seen. Rossy, (29-9, 14 KOs), of Medford, NY, faces undefeated Uzbekistan native, Muralimov, (16-0, 13KOs), who now resides in Texas, tonight at Resorts World Casino, in Queens, New York. On the line will the vacant IBF North American Heavyweight title. Promoter Sal Musumeci’s Final Forum Promotions has lined up two championship fights and an exciting undercard. Interestingly two of the fighters on the show have former world champions training them; Mike Lee, who will fight Gary Tapusoa for the vacant UBF All Americas Cruiserweight belt, is trained by former heavyweight title holder Chris Byrd, and undercard fighter Curtis Harper is trained by former lightweight champ Nate Campbell.

Muralimov will be in his first New York fight, but not his first US fight. Most if his fights thus far have been in the US. The father of a one year old girl named Iaisha, Muralimov, described himself saying he is always ready, “I train all the time,” he claimed, “I train every day three times. No just for fight, I train all times,” he explained in his heavy accent. (more…)

Rose wants another world title shot

Jr middleweight contender Brian Rose hopes a win over Carson Jones in tonight’s clash at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool will lead to a second world title shot. Rose meets the Oklahoman for the vacant WBC International title as he aims to move into line for another world title crack following his unsuccessful challenge of Demetrius Andrade in June. “It was a great experience but I totally froze,” said Rose. “He’s a special fighter that will go on to do great things, but the whole occasion got to me in the end. I’ve put that behind me with a first round stoppage, he wasn’t the best opponent but I can only beat what is put in front of me, and I am going to prove that there are no lasting effects of the Andrade fight.

“I have learnt from that Andrade defeat and the whole experience of fighting at that top level, and I will prove that. I don’t regret any of it, I held my hands up and said he was too good for me – and for me to say that means I am not sure that I would be able to beat him, he’s that good. But the right champion who suits my style, I will win a world title. I regret my performance, and if I fight for a world title again I need to perform, and if I can get that shot and perform to my best, I know I can win a world title.”

First, however, he has to get past Jones.

Jackson-Gonzalez battle to a draw in NYC

Uprising Promotions, in association with Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin, put on a card at the Five Star Banquet Hall in Long Island City (Queens, NY) on Friday night, thanks in large part an incredible job of matchmaking from promoter Ronson Frank. In the co-feature of The Big Payback, Uprising Promotions featherweight Angel Luna (11-0-1, 7 KOs) dropped Jhovany Collado twice in the opening round of an eventual unanimous decision victory, while Top Rank welterweight John Jackson (16-3-2, 13 KOs) was forced to settle for a majority draw in the main event against a very game Rafael Gonzalez (7-2-2, 6 KOs).

Scheduled to end a nearly five-year layoff in the original main event of the evening was ultra-popular New York junior lightweight Gary Stark Jr. (23-3, 8 KOs), but his return remained on hold after his opponent, Jesus Navarro (22-9-1, 16 KOs), failed his final medical examination earlier in the day.
