Announcement

Veteran ref Terry Smith passes

Courtesy Jim Jenkins, Sacramento Bee

Terry Smith, former attorney and Sacramento boxing referee who officated several world title fights in the U.S. and abroad, has died. A native of England, Smith succumbed after a long illness Wednesday at age 76. He began his ring career as an amateur boxer, winning a 156-pound national title in 1959 for Sacramento State when boxing was an intercollegiate sport. In 1960, he was an alternate on a then Cassius Clay-led U.S. Olympic team but never saw action and then had a brief pro career. An attorney for the Sacramento District Attorney’s office, Smith was highly-respected by peers as a referee and judge, but his expertise was tested in a 1987 fight in Sacramento. He braved an angry crowd after disqualifying hometown favorite Tony Lopez for throwing an extra punch after flattening an opponent. To his credit, Lopez never held a grudge and won the rematch by knockout en route to a world junior-lightweight title. “Terry made the right call against Tony but, gosh, that took guts,” said friend and fellow ref Jon Schorle, who was tutored by Smith. Private services are planned.

Two months later, on September 10, Adamek will fight the older Klitschko brother Vitali for his WBC heavyweight belt in Poland. “David Haye is putting great pressure on himself with all those declarations and knockout predictions,” said Adamek. “I know – and Wlad also knows, for sure – that Haye wants Klitschko to fight an uncontrolled, very emotional fight. Not sure it will work, though. Hopefully Haye will not burn himself out, just spend his whole energy on talking, provoking, etc. I cannot imagine myself in the situation when I’m basically saying that the other guy is nothing and then be destroyed in the ring. I would vanish, change name, the whole works.” (more…)

Vanes looking at other fights

Undefeated junior middleweight Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan (30-0, 19KO’s) is looking to secure a major fight this fall. The WBC’s top rated 154-pounder had his sights set on a Mexican Independence Day show down with Mexican star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez but that might not come to fruition any time soon. “Canelo and I would be a big fight at STAPLES Center. The place would be full of Mexican and Armenian fans. His style and my style go together perfectly and would give the fans the fight that they want to see,” said Martirosyan. Indications are that Alvarez will not face the Glendale, California, based fighter this year. With that news, Team Martirosyan is moving on and there are plenty of options in the loaded junior middleweight division.

Martirosyan’s manager Steve Feder indicated that Alvarez won’t face Martirosyan until it is forced by the WBC. “We can’t keep wasting time on Alvarez. We thought we would get ‘Canelo’ in September but he won’t fight us until he has to and even then he will try to find a way out. I don’t blame him. If I was his manager I wouldn’t want him to fight Vanes either,” said Feder. (more…)

The undefeated Rios (27-0-1, 19 KOs), of Oxnard, Calif., by way of Lubbock, Texas, will defend his WBA lightweight title against Antillon in the main event of a SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING doubleheader. Arguably the division’s most exciting fighter, Rios is coming off the biggest win of his career – a 10th round TKO of defending champion Miguel Acosta on Feb. 26 to capture the WBA title.

Antillon (28-2, 20 KOs), of Maywood, Calif., has given sensational performances in recent fights. In his last outing, he lost a controversial decision against World Boxing Council lightweight champ Humberto Soto last December in the consensus “Fight of the Year.” Though he lost to Soto, Antillon emerged from that fight a world-class contender.

In the co-main event, former International Boxing Federation (IBF) welterweight champion Kermit Cintron (32-3-1, 28 KOs), of Carolina, Puerto Rico, will square off with Carlos Molina (18-4-2, 6 KOs), of Chicago, by way of Mexico, in a 10-round junior middleweight fight.

The stars were out at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday night. There were bright lights, a red carpet, hundreds of fans in attendance seeking autographs or pictures. One would have thought that famous actors, rappers, or other celebrities were attending an awards show based on the electricity of the event and the crowd.
Instead, it was two of the biggest names in boxing today that drew an overwhelming crowd to the outdoor plaza, which is located right across the street from STAPLES Center.

Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz took different roads during their professional career, but they will step inside the ring on September 17th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
