Lundy on Dulorme: If he gets caught upstairs he falls apart

Junior welterweight Hank Lundy (25-3-1, 12 KOs) isn’t impressed with NABF titleholder Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14 KOs), whom he faces in a 10-round primetime showcase Saturday night on HBO’s Boxing After Dark. “He’s basic,” Lundy said. “A lot of jabs. He likes to pump his jab and hook off his jab. Nothing special. He can’t fight on the inside and doesn’t have a chin. If he gets caught upstairs he falls apart.

“As far as him being a power puncher, I don’t see it. I’m not taking anything away from Mayfield, but Mayfield was right in front of him and he couldn’t stop him. If he’s such a puncher, why didn’t he knock out Mayfield? If you look at some of his knockouts, those were against lesser opponents. Who were they? They were nobody. Mayfield is a fighter that will be in your face. That’s what punchers want. They don’t want someone who’ll move around.”

“Those tall guys don’t have the tools I have. Once I get in front of you I can fool you. You don’t know where I’m coming from. They assume a lot because I’m short, but I’ve got a lot of tricks up my sleeve…once I get in that ring, I’ll see what he will give me and that’s what I’ll take. Everyone knows Hammerin’ Hank can box, and if I want to come get you, I’ll come get you…this is my championship right here. I’m just prepared to do what I have to do.”

Lemieux: It’s going to be brutal

“This is going to be an exciting fight for the fans and for everybody — and it’s going to be brutal,” promises Canadian KO artist David Lemieux (32-2, 30 KOs), who faces all action middleweight slugger “King” Gabriel Rosado (21-8, 13 KOs) in what stacks up as a very fan-friendly fight on Saturday in the HBO-televised headliner from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

“I’m very excited to be back in the ring,” said Lemieux in a recent conference call. “It’s the first time in the US as a pro so it’s going to be very interesting fighting at the Barclays Center on HBO for a main event. I’m very confident that I did everything I had to do. I’m not fighting for the fans. Me, I’m fighting for my family. I want to feed my children. So I know that whatever I do is going to reward the fans and make sure that the fans are always satisfied because, as a pro, I’m there to do the best I can do. So let’s get down to business on December 6th.” (more…)

Rosado: I really don’t feel that Lemieux’s the favorite in this fight

All action middleweight “King” Gabriel Rosado (21-8, 13 KOs) faces Canadian KO artist David Lemieux (32-2, 30 KOs) on Saturday in the HBO-televised headliner from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Lemieux is currently a -240 favorite, but Rosado doesn’t see it that way. In recent a conference call, Rosado talked about replacing his long time trainer Billy Briscoe with veteran trainer Jesse Reid, his current losing streak, being the “B” side, his opinion of Lemieux, his BKB KO win against Bryan Vera, and much more.

Can you talk about the difficulty and maybe the hesitance in parting ways with a trainer you’ve worked with so long?

Yes, Billy Briscoe, he was my trainer for about 10 years. But it just kind of got to the point where I just felt that it wasn’t anything personal, it’s just business and I thought that in order for me to take it to that next level, I had to make a move. And Jesse Reid is one of the best trainers in the world. He’s trained 25 World Champions and it’s funny how it just worked out. (more…)

Salita inks unbeaten prospect Zubov

Dmitriy Salita has announced the signing of cruiserweight prospect Alexey Zubov, a Russian-born boxer with a tremendous amateur predigree and 6-0 , 4 KOs mark as a professional, to the Star of David Promotions roster. The 28-year-old right-hander Zubov is 6-2 1/2, owns power in both hands, and will be moving to NYC to make his stand in the professional ranks. He debuted in April with a KO1 win, and Salita sees a bunch more of those type of victories coming in the near future.

“Alexey is one of the best prospects in boxing,” Salita said. “He has the skills, size and work ethic to be a cruiserweight and heavyweight champion. The invaluable experience he gained as an elite amateur will help him progress quickly in the pros. I am confident that Alexey’s aggressive style will make him very popular amongst boxing fans and in New York’s Russian community.”

Zubov will fight on a Salita pro boxing card January 22 at Webster Hall in Manhattan. (more…)

Border War tops Motor City fight card

By Bob Ryder

MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit will host promoter Greg Ahrens and matchmaker Carlos Llinas’ next presentation on Thursday, December 11. The eight round main event features a heavyweight match up as undefeated Ali Mansour of Windsor, Canada tangles with Detroit’s Damon McCreary. This match has been in the works for months with the fighters exchanging verbal barbs along the way. McCreary has been in with the better opposition including Deontay Wilder but at 41 it will be a question as to what he has left. Mansour is a natural heavyweight and will have that advantage going for him. Lack of conditioning has marred both guys recent performances and this one may very well come down to who is in the best shape. Interesting crossroads fight for local bragging rights.

In other matches Detroit favorites Darryl Cunningham and Willie Fortune look to bounce back after tough losses. Cunningham will take on Bruce Rumboltz while Fortune tangles with Skyler Thompson. Cunningham’s bout is scheduled for six, Fortune-Thompson is an eight rounder. (more…)

Interview: Malik Scott

Boxing.pl’s Joanna Maj recently conducted a terrific interview with heavyweight Malik Scott, who is back on the rise after an October 24 win over former heavyweight title challenger Alex Leapai.

Fight #40 against Alex Leapai, who was coming off the loss against Vladimir Klitschko, gave you a much needed win. During the press conference before, you stated that you are not only going to win, but you will stop him at the same time. If not, retirement it is. We don’t want you to retire yet, but jokes aside, did Alex surprise you in any way that night and how satisfied are you with your performance on October 24th?

Yes the win was very much needed and the plan was to take Alex into deep water and drown him. But I broke my hand on his head in the 4th round, so therefore I was only able to deliver a ten round ass kicking and not the stoppage I promised myself. (more…)

Guzman headlines January 22 in Nashville

Former two-time world champion Joan Guzman will be back in action January 22. Like his last fight this past October 31, the venue will be the San Jose Fiesta Mexican Restaurant which is owned by Guzman’s manager Ramon Arellano and located in Nashville, Tennessee. The opponent for the main event bout will be determined shortly.

Guzman defeated a veteran journeyman this past October 31 which was met with some criticism in some social media networks. Arellano quickly came to the defense of his fighter and addressed this. “I read some people writing some negative comments and I personally told them that it didn’t matter who he fought. What matters is that he fought, won, got some rounds and came out of the fight injury free. Guzman hadn’t fought in nearly two years prior to this last fight.” (more…)

Australian heavyweight contender Mark “The Dominator” de Mori (27-1-2, 23 KOs) wants to fight current WBA world heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev (33-2-1, 20 KOs) for his title in 2015. With the news surfacing that veteran Fres Oquendo allegedly tested positive for prohibited substances following his WBA world title fight against Chagaev in July, de Mori says if he gets the opportunity to be the next opponent for Chagaev, he is more than happy to undergo any testing from now until after the fight.

“Right now I am ranked number 9 by the WBA. Fighters testing positive ranked above me I assume will be dropped from the rankings” de Mori said. “I made myself available on 2 days notice when Oquendo was originally balking at turning up for the fight against Chagaev so I have no problem nominating myself with serious preparation time.” (more…)

WBA #11 Parker returns Saturday

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

When WBA #11, WBO #14 Heavyweight Joseph Parker (11-0, 9 KOs) returns to the ring on Saturday in New Zealand against Brazilian Irineu Beato Costa Junior (15-1, 13 KOs), it will be Parker’s fifth ring appearance of 2014. WBO #15 Costa is coming off a twelve round decision loss against Christian Hammer in October but in his only other 2014 ring outing he dominated Daniel Alejandro Sanabria over twelve rounds to successfully defend the WBO Latino title.

Parker’s trainer Kevin Barry says this is a ‘risk versus reward’ fight. “Everyone knows the last time Joe fought a tall Brazilian (Marcelo Luiz Nascimento) he got his ear drum busted. We were expecting an easier lead up to Christmas but have struggled attracting many of the top 15 rated guys and when one comes along we’ve got to take the fight, even if it is at a month’s notice.” (more…)

Tyson Fury set to return to action in February, negotiations will also begin for shot at Klitschko

By James Slater

Unbeaten Tyson Fury made it look easy last night, in dominating every round against Dereck Chisora before “Del Boy” was mercifully pulled out after the tenth-round of their heavily hyped but ultimately disappointing rematch. And now, in the eyes of a growing number of fans, 6’9″ Fury is THE most dangerous challenger out there for the all-conquering Wladimir Klitschko.

Proving last night that he is far more than just an exciting brawler, Fury can box, from both the orthodox and the southpaw stance, and he has fast hands for such a big man. But will heavyweight king Klitschko agree to defend against Fury, who is now the mandatory for Wladimir’s WBO strap? (more…)
