Monday fights back in Tijuana

By Felipe Leon

For much of the 80’s and 90’s, Tijuana, Mex, was known for their regular Monday night fight cards. Now after over ten years since those explosive fight nights, the memories are full of nostalgia. Thanks to Tijuana staple Antonio “Cañas” Lozada those nights will make a comeback when on Monday, October 25th, his Baja Boxing Promotions presents “Monday Night Fights” at Tijuana’s El Foro Theatre.

Many Tijuana fight fans consider those Monday night fights cards of old as the “golden age” of local boxing where a large number of Tijuana fighters began their careers and ended then on the world stage such as Raul “Jibaro” Perez, Juan Jose “Dinamita” Estrada and Manuel “Mantecas” Medina as well as numerous local heroes.

Abraham backs integration campaign

Photo: Ole Bader/sandwichpicker.com, Berlin

Three months after meeting German chancellor Angela Merkel in training camp, King Arthur Abraham today was a featured guest at the famous Federal Chancellery in Berlin. The immensely popular 30-year-old is one of the testimonials for the far-reaching integration campaign, which was presented at “Germany´s White House” in front of high-ranking members of the national and international press. Stressing the importance of German language skills, the campaign aims to encourage young foreigners to properly learn German as part of a successful integration into society.

“I know from my own experience how important it is to speak the language of the country you live in,” King Arthur said at the press conference, which was hosted by Professor Dr. Maria Böhmer, the government’s integration expert. “I came from Armenia to Germany when I was 15 years old and I immediately started to learn German. The communication with the people around you is crucial for a successful integration, for a successful and happy life. That is why I am proud to support this campaign.” (more…)

Pascal, Hopkins Quick Quotes

At today’s NYC press conference for his December 18 SHOWTIME-televised championship tilt with Jean Pascal, Bernard Hopkins made an age joke to big laughs from the press, “I was in my rocking chair when he said he wanted to fight me next. I rocked faster, grabbed my cane and put me teeth in!” Later, an impassioned Hopkins said, “He makes one mistake & it’s over. I’m not just coming out for a payday. I’d NEVER disrespect my legacy.”

Current WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Jean Pascal countered by saying, “Bernard Hopkins came to my country & disrespected me, but I won’t do that to him because my mom taught me to respect my elders.” He later pulls out his college diploma, looks Hopkins in the eye and says, “I’m gonna take you to school.”

By Bob Ryder

Lanardo Tyner and Andre Gorges are primed and ready for their October 30 showdown in the eight round main event on promoter Joseph Donofrio’s show at The Palace of Auburn Hills in suburban Detroit. Both had plenty to say to Fightnews. “Pain Server” Tyner was blunt, “to be honest I’m offended he wants to fight me. I mean, it’s like with your limited experience do you think you can beat me? It’s created a fire in me. I’m going to pressure him on out of there!” Gorges acknowledged that he has heard Tyner loud and clear and he is prepared. “I know he is going to come at me but I am going to fight him. I can’t win it by running. I can punch too. This is my big breakout fight. People forget that even though I’ve only had 10 pro fights I had 150 bouts as an amateur. Back when I was just a 19 year old kid I sparred with Tyner and I more than held my own.” (more…)

Robert Helenius (13-0, 8 KOs) has promised his Finnish fans a spectacular KO victory over Attila Levin (34-3, 27 KOs) when they clash for Scandinavian heavyweight supremacy at Helsinki´s Hartwall Areena on November 27. Seven of Helenius´ last eight opponents did not last until the final bell, including former WBO Heavyweight Champion Lamon Brewster and EU Heavyweight Title Challenger Gregory Tony. Next in line to taste Helenius´ feared punching power is Levin. “I will make sure the first defence of my EU Heavyweight Title will be one to remember,” Helenius said. “Levin is a tough guy with a lot of experience, but my goal is to be the best – the best heavyweight in Finland, in Scandinavia and ultimately the best heavyweight in the world.

Abril defeats Reyes

Captures WBC Latino lightweight belt

By Phil Doherty at ringside
Photos: mpsportimages.com

Richard “El Tigre” Abril (13-2, 6 KOs) captured the WBC Latino lightweight belt with tonight’s unanimous decision victory over game Jose “El Gallo” Reyes at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, FL. Reyes falls to 23-9 with 8 KOs. The taller Abril controlled the action with solid right hands catching Reyes as he vainly charged to close the distance. Referee Frank Gentile issued the first of many warnings to Abril for holding behind the head to begin the first round. Despite Gentile’s warnings to both fighters in the first, fourth, eighth and ninth rounds, “El Tigre” showed good speed and accuracy considering his recent 10 month layoff away from the ring. Reyes fought back valiantly in the middle rounds, landing a flush right hand which snapped Abril’s head back to close the ninth.. Unfortunately, it was too little too late as Abril regrouped to win the final round. The three judges scored it 99-91, 97-93 and 98-92 for Abril. (more…)
