Upset: Mendoza KOs Negron

By Karl Freitag
Photos: Jose Perez/PR Best

In a huge upset, former jr middleweight-turned-heavyweight Epifanio Mendoza (33-12, 28 KOs) scored a spectacular third round KO over previously unbeaten Olympian Carlos Negrón (13-1, 9 KOs) on Friday night at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Mendoza had the 6’6 Negron hurt and ready to go when the bell rang to end round two. Mendoza was then all over him in round three, flooring Negron twice. Time was 2:03.

Mendoza is no stranger to knocking out unbeaten fighters having taken the ‘O’ from Tokunbo Olajide (2002), and Rubin Williams (2003), however at age 35, a career high weight of 207.6 lbs. and a loser of eight of his last eleven, this result was quite unexpected. more photos

Morel targets Kameda

By Rey Colón -The Sport Press

Former world champion Eric Morel, who was tentatively scheduled to face WBA bantamweight “super” champion Anselmo Moreno on October 15 and then on November 5, has set his sights on WBA “regular” champion Koki Kameda since it appears that Moreno will have to deal problems with the WBA and therefore his planned defense defense Morel will be off. “Moreno has a dispute with his manager and we are very sad about it,” said Morel’s father/trainer Cyril Morel. “We wanted that fight. It seems that the WBA will make Koki Kameda a super champion and we have no problem with a Kameda fight if he wants. We told our promoter (Golden Boy) and the WBA that we would fight Goliath or King Kong….Eric is available. We want to fight for the title. We already had targeted Moreno who is a very good and unbeaten but we don’t know what the WBA will do. We’ll fight against any bantamweight champion.”

WBC statement on Oscar

WBC President José Sulaimán: “I feel tremendously impacted by the declarations of our former champion of the world, Oscar de la Hoya, and I understand the terrible depression through which he recently lived. But at the same time, we are very pleased to see that Oscar is turning into an example for the youth of the world by expressing the terribly damaging effects of alcohol and the cancer of our contemporary society, drugs, as well as his struggle and efforts to find rehabilitation to defeat such a dangerous rival, as he is already doing. Only great champions like Oscar have the will of a tiger to confront evil and defeat it, just as he is doing today, to strengthen his image of idolatry.

Brooks bullish on Jeffries

Famed trainer Tommy Brooks insists he wouldn’t waste his time with Olympic bronze medallist Tony Jeffries if he didn’t believe he had world title potential. Jeffries (8-0-1) has his second fight under the American trainer when he meets Paul Morby (6-6-1) on Saturday night (Sept 3) Their Doncaster Dome fight is the chief support when Commonwealth and European bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell (17-2-1) collides with British king Stuey Hall (11-0-1) in a triple title battle.

Jeffries moved his base to California to join Brooks who was almost KO’d from getting to Britain because of Hurricane Irene. He arrived two days late on Tuesday and expects his prospect to blow away Portsmouth’s Morby in their light-heavyweight eight rounder. Brooks said: “I don’t jerk around with people who don’t have a chance. I’m not going to waste my time or their time if they haven’t got it.” (more…)

Robert Guerrero said Thursday – two days after surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff – that the successful procedure took care of a problem that bothered him for years.

“I’ve always had problems in there ever since my amateur days, but you tend to block things out and deal with stuff,” Guerrero said. “It’s fixed now so that’s great.” Less than 48 hours after the two-hour operation by Dr. Michael Dillingham, in Burlingame, Calif., about an hour north of his hometown of Gilroy, “The Ghost” said there’s little discomfort.

The 2004 Olympic gold medallist has impressed fans and experts with his extraordinary speed and power and fought his way to stardom with spectacular performances since turning pro in April 2007. “Some people see Gamboa as a prospect but he is far more than this already”, says promoter Ahmet Oner. “He is one of the four or five best fighters in the world right now and he is ready and willing to prove it in every single fight. He has beaten everybody who crossed his way and he is not ducking anybody. Gamboa always wanted to fight Chris John – but he avoided him.

Bailey: I’ve got next

This Saturday night Andre Berto attempts to regain a piece of the welterweight crown when he takes on reigning IBF Welterweight Champion, Jan Zaveck, at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, MS. Of all the people in attendance and even more watching at home, there will be no one observing the action more closely then two-time world champion, Randall Bailey.

Bailey, who is considered by many to be one of the hardest punchers in all of boxing, as witnessed by his 37 stoppages in 41 victories, will be seeing action on the undercard against Florida’s Yoryi Estrella. Bailey has been the mandatory to Zaveck for sometime now and could have taken the fight with Zaveck, but instead he chose to step aside and allow the fight between Zaveck and Berto to take place first. Whoever pulls out the victory Saturday night, Bailey will be next in line for a crack at the title. (more…)

WBC vs. AIBA

The International Boxing Association (AIBA) which oversees amateur boxing including the Olympics, as well as the “World Series of Boxing” professional league, has come under fire from WBC President Jose Sulaiman. At issue is a conflict between the AIBA and Roma­nian Boxing Fede­ra­tion (RBF) President Rudel Obreja stemming from the Romanian official’s allegations that AIBA officials were manipulating referees during the Olympic Games in Beijing. The AIBA has issued an ultimatum that if Obreja remains the head of the RBF that no Romanian boxers will be allowed to compete at the 2012 Olympics.

WBC President Jose Sulaiman stated that the “AIBA is showing the world of sports their dictatorial, monopolistic, arbitrary and disrespectful intention to rule the world of boxing not only in their amateur field, but also in the professional world, which the WBC strongly protests and will struggle against all those who go back in history to impose dictatorial rulings, which goes against the sport of boxing and all the people and institutions of the sport.” (more…)

IBF middleweight champion Daniel “Real Deal” Geale (26-1, 15 KOs) retained the championship with a clear twelve round decision over Eromosele “Bad Boy” Albert (24-5-1, 12 KOs) on Wednesday at the Derwent Entertainment Centre, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. A capacity crowd of 5000 fight fans witnessed Geale control the action in most of the rounds as he boxed skillfully connecting with accurate combinations while using clever footwork that made him a very difficult target for the aggressive Albert. The Nigerian born, Miami based Albert was in great fighting shape as he maintained pressure in all of the rounds but had problems hitting the mobile champion who continually switched from orthodox to southpaw stance and also displayed outstanding hand speed and accuracy. At the conclusion of twelve action rounds referee Tony Weeks crowned Geale the winner by scores of – Robert Hoyle (USA) 117-111, Somsak Sirianant (Thailand) 116-112, Ray Reed (Australia) 119-109.
