Veteran promoter Don King believes that Devon Alexander will become his latest world champion at the expense of Junior Witter this weekend. Witter will attempt to regain his old title at the Agua Caliente Casino in California on Saturday night with the vacant WBC light welterweight title on the line against the undefeated Alexander. King has overseen the 22-year-old St. Louis native’s impressive rise up the light welterweight rankings and he believes that Alexander has the potential to become a major star. “I saw something special in Devon from the beginning,” revealed King. “He doesn’t drink, smoke or take drugs. He takes care of his body. His smile lights up a room. He’s also a great role model for young people. I can’t say enough good things about this talented young man. Now he has received an opportunity in the land of opportunity and he plans to make the most of it. Those in attendance at Agua Caliente and watching across America on Showtime are going to see a very special young fighter win his first world title.” (more…)

Unbeaten former WBC youth welterweight title holder James De La Rosa (19-0, 12 KOs) claims he is now a free agent. The move was announced by manager/trainer Danny Smith who is preparing to move the young welterweight prospect “The King” into position for his run at a world welterweight title. “Being a free agent is great, you know Cavazos did a really good job getting him to where he got him and Dino did a great job getting us a couple of television fights but they don’t have a big stable and they don’t have guaranteed TV dates. We need to be with someone that can really showcase this young kid so the world can see. James brings excitement to the ring because he comes to fight to win by knock out or be knocked out, which is what people really want to see,” stated Danny Smith. (more…)

It’s all part of Peterson’s plan to strengthen his right knee which was twisted during a long run while he was preparing for a fight in February. Barry Hunter, chief trainer for Peterson, put together a training game plan: 12 laps to warm up, a series of squats, running and shadow boxing – all in the water. “After I train in the gym I head to the Rec Center (in Washington, D.C.) and get into the pool,” said Peterson, who will fight Luis Arceo of Mexico. “It’s hard work in the water – I can hold my breath 2 minutes, 5 seconds – but worth it. I feel fantastic and I am ready to fight. Peterson was initially injured when he was scheduled to fight Edner Cherrry on the Miguel Cotto vs. Michael Jennings fight card at Madison Square Garden. “I was running, heard something in my right knee, stopped and then got it examined,” said Peterson. “It was bad enough where I could not fight on Feb. 17. However, I am now healthy and ready to go.” Tickets for Pinoy Power 2, which features ‘The Filipino Flash’ Nonito Donaire vs. Rafael Concepcion, are $200, $100, $50 and are available at www.ticketmaster.com

Torres by the numbers!

It’s a debate that captivates the mixed martial arts community. Who is the sport’s best pound-for-pound fighter? Champions like BJ Penn, Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida and Brock Lesnar often get the most recognition, but perhaps the most dominant title holder is one who weighs just 135-pounds.

Miguel Angel Torres, the reigning WEC® bantamweight champion, has lost just once in his nine-year career and is currently riding a 17-fight winning streak. What’s more, since winning the title via submission over Chase Beebe in 2008, Torres has left his mark on the bantamweight division with three masterful championship defenses. (more…)
