Rigondeaux: Casey not in my class

WBA interim super bantamweight champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (7-0, 5 KOs) is preparing to school challenger Willie “Big Bang” Casey (11-0, 7 KOs) when they square-off March 19 in Dublin. “Casey doesn’t belong in the same ring as me,” the 30-year-old Rigondeaux said, “but I admire his courage for wanting to fight me. I’m excited about fighting in Ireland again, where I won my first World Championship as an amateur in 2001. My last fight, against Cordoba, was on the Pacquiao-Margarito card. Millions of people watching on pay-per-view, along with 61,000 fans in Dallas, watched me do what I had to do to win the WBA title.

“I am world champion. Casey and all of the fans in attendance will see a true world champion in action March 19. If Casey thinks I’m going to Ireland to lose my world title belt, he’s making a big mistake because I’m going to win, and in sensational fashion. He is tailor-made for me. I watched a couple of rounds of Casey’s previous fights and concluded that he’s a bit of a one-trick pony. We are as far apart in class as in residence, make no mistake about that and when the bell rings March 19th, that will certainly be evident to all.” (more…)

Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard engaged in a five round battle that will be a very early candidate for Fight of the Year. The highly anticipated rematch resulted in an outcome nobody could’ve predicted—a majority draw.

Gray Maynard wasted no time taking the fight to the champion. After a brief feeling out process, Maynard began a serious onslaught with a left hook that sent Edgar spiraling back and around the cage. Another right uppercut put the champ on the mat a second time. In what had to be the longest five minutes of Edgar’s career, he miraculously survived the blitz on heart alone . . . click here for more

“I thought it was my fight.”

Those words came out of Gray Maynard’s mouth over and over at the UFC 125 post fight press conference.

Maynard opened up a commanding lead in the opening round, nearly stunning champion Frankie Edgar with a first round stoppage. “The Bully” lived up to his moniker, flooring the champion three times with big shots and scoring two takedowns. Though Edgar made it out of the round and rallied back, the judges all scored the opener 10-8 for the challenger . . . click here for more

Many thought that Brian Stann bit off more than he could chew when he called out the ultra hot Chris Leben. But when the two stepped in the cage, Stann proved that he was no fool as he blasted Leben and scored a first round TKO. It was quite possibly the biggest victory in Stann’s career as he made his debut at middleweight. It’s a decision that Stann is proud of and also feels was long overdue . . . click here for more

New Faces: Evens Pierre

By Robert Coster

Boxers many time have compelling stories to tell. And such is certainly the case with Haitian-born, Panama-based lightweight prospect Evens Pierre (17-1, 13 KOs). In his short two-year career, Pierre has become the only boxer born and raised in Haiti to win a boxing belt: the WBA Fedecentro title last June, a first step he hopes will move him into the world rankings in this coming year. Winning a boxing title, albeit a regional one, was hailed as a feat by Evens’ supporters back in Haiti, particularly in “Sun City” (Cite Soleil), the commune where he was born, a misnomer since the area is in fact an extended, dreary slum on the outskirts of the Haitian capital of Port au Prince, one of the poorest, crime-ridden, disease-ridden places in the world.

Interview: Antonio Margarito

By Felipe Leon
Photos: Felipe Leon

Nobody can deny that the twenty-eight months since his break through win over Miguel Cotto have been the toughest of Antonio Margarito’s sixteen-year career. Six months after his TKO of the Puerto Rican star in Las Vegas, Margarito found himself on the losing side of a ninth round knockout from Shane Mosley and in the middle of a controversy that would change his life forever. Accused of using illegal hand wraps prior to his championship bout against Mosley in which he lost the WBA welterweight title, Margarito was soon suspended for over a year beginning in February of ‘09. Furiously holding on to his innocence through out his hearing and the subsequent months after, Margarito (38-7, 27KOs) made his comeback to the ring once again last May and won a unanimous decision over Texas’ Robert “Amenaza” Garcia in Aguascalientes, MX.

Soon after, Margarito’s promoter Bob Arum announced that the “Tijuana Tornado” would be taking on the best fighter in the world, Manny Pacquiao in November. The much anticipated mega fight drew overforty thousand boxing fans to Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, TX, to watch Pacquiao win a lopsided decision for the vacant WBC super welterweight crown, his eight title in as many divisions. The never say die Margarito suffered a fractured right orbital bone caused by a punch in the fourth roundwhich impaired his vision until the end of the bout and forced him to visit the hospital soon after.

“The fight changed after the fourth round, he caught me with an uppercut and hurt my eye and after that, I couldn’t see,” Margarito stated as he sat ringside at a fight card in his hometown of Tijuana, MX, in one his first public appearances after the fight. “I was told that I hurt him in that round but I didn’t see it or else I would have finished him right there.” (more…)
