All Star Boxing, Inc. will return with their successful “Boxeo Telemundo” series on September 28th at the Foro Polanco in Mexico City. In a highly anticipated rematch, WBC Latin flyweight champion Julian “Chicano” Rivera (12-6, 2 KOs) battles Edgar “Power” Jimenez (15-7-1, 11 KOs) in a twelve-rounder with Rivera’s title at stake. Their first encounter, last July 13, was an all out war in which Rivera edged Jimenez by split decision by scores of 114-113, 113-114 and 117-113 to capture the title. The fight was so close and competitive that WBC ordered an immediate rematch. (more…)

In a cold freezing night in Moscow, Russian Alexnader “Knight Alexander” Bakhtin (30-0, 11 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision against tough Filipino fighter Rolie “Gasolina” Gasca (19-3, 5 KOs) in a clash for the vacant IBO world super bantamweight title fight on Tuesday at the Varshavka Sky.
In the co-main event, Russian lightweight Eduard Troyanovsky (12-0, 9 KOs) came with in a huge height and reach advantage and used it to his advantage to keep tough Filipino Joseph Von Minoza (14-0, 6 KOs) at a distance. Minoza went toe to toe with the lanky Russian in a good action packed fight with Minoza landing some big shots, but in the 6th and 7th rounds, Troyanovsky took control of the fight, and Team Minoza thought he had enough and decided to not come out for the 8th round. Troyanovsky is the new PABA beltholder.

Saturday night’s Alvarez-Lopez telecast on Showtime attracted over one million viewers (1.04 million) for the live telecast, surpassing the 2010 Jean Pascal vs. Bernard Hopkins event as the highest viewership for a bout since the network began tracking bout viewership.
No numbers have been released yet for the competing Martinez-Chavez PPV the same night, but that telecast is also expected to have done extremely well.
Both arenas that night (located just a few miles apart) were announced as sold out by the promoters. Hopefully this terrific success will lead to more great boxing matches being made like we saw Saturday night. People want to see good fights.
A Purse Bid was held in the IBF office today for the IBF Lightweight mandatory defense betweeen Champion Miguel Vazquez and Marvin Quintero. Gary Shaw Productions was the sole bidder. They bid $ 50,000 and have 90 days to put the fight on.

A rematch between super flyweights Juan Jose “Goofy” Montes and Oscar “Ceviche” Ibarra will take place on Saturday at the Municipal Gym in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico. Ibarra-Montes I in February (won by Montes via unanimous decision) was an exciting encounter and is considered one of the best from Mexico in 2012. The vacant WBF belt will be on the line. The event is billed as “Cuentas Pendientes” (Pending Accounts) will be presented by Promociones del Pueblo and broadcast by Televisa.
Also that night, WBF female flyweight beltholder Irma “Guerita” Sánchez defends against WBC former champion Carina “Reina” Moreno, and bantamweight prospect Julio “Pollito” Ceja will defend his IBF Latino crown against veteran Genaro “Poblanito” Garcia.
Unbeaten super bantamweight Carl Frampton believes Steve Molitor is in for a shock on Saturday night and has vowed to make the two-time world champion pay for a lack of respect. Molitor touched down in Belfast yesterday and instantly warned Frampton that it was “too soon” for him to step up to face him. “He’s said a few things about me in the build up and he obviously likes to talk a bit – that’s fine,” said Frampton. “All that matters to me is victory on Saturday night and doing it in the best possible way for the fans. He won’t have any friends in the Arena on Saturday and his words won’t be able to help him then. I would love to fight him right now, I’m totally ready. This is a massive fight for me, I know that I am leaping up the levels to face Molitor but I believe I have more than enough to cope with him and this is the right time for me to prove I can cut it at the top.”
Heavyweight contender David Haye today confirmed he has handed back his Luxembourg boxing license, but will still try to force a fight with WBC world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in 2013. “I’d like to thank the Luxembourg Boxing Federation for licensing me ahead of my July bout with Dereck Chisora in London, but I no longer require that license,” said Haye, the former WBA world heavyweight champion.
“It’s been well-publicized already, but the reason I applied for a license from the Luxembourg Boxing Federation was because my opponent, Dereck Chisora, had seen his British license withdrawn. The only way we were able to deliver the fight the public wanted, when they wanted it, was to both apply for foreign licenses, as arranged by Chisora’s promoter. In an ideal world, though, I’d now like to box on with a British license. I’m a British boxer, I have never had any issues with the board and, should a fight with Vitali Klitschko happen, I’d be keen to have the British Boxing Board of Control in my corner, simply because they are so experienced and are the best at what they do.” (more…)

We use Chinese letters instead of alphabet in Japan. Putting a letter meaning a woman three times, it signifies noisy. If no less than four female boxers fight in a doubleheader, that might be more than noisy, that is, extravagant. Japanese promoter and ex-WBA junior flyweight champ who kept his belt thirteen times, Yoko Gushiken today announced the initial defense of his pupil and WBA female super-flyweight champ Naoko Yamaguchi (19-3-3, 16 KOs) since she celebrated her coronation by dethroning compatriot Tsunami Tenkai this July. Yamaguchi, a 34-year-old ex-javelin thrower, will put her belt on the line against a tough Mexican Judith Rodriguez (6-3, 4 KOs) at the Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, on November 12. On the same bill, unbeaten female dynamite Noriko Tsunoda (2-0, 2 KOs), formerly a highly regarded kick-boxer, will cope with compatriot Mari Inamoto (4-5) for the vacant OPBF 115-pound belt (renounced by former titlist Yamaguchi).
