Kal Yafai is looking to add a second major title to his collection against Herald Molina at the SSE Arena, Wembley tomorrow night live on Sky Sports – and the talented Birmingham man looks to be on a non-stop charge to a World title.
Yafai and Molina battle it out for the vacant IBF Inter-Continental Super Flyweight strap, four months after landing the Commonwealth title in just his 11th fight with a three-round demolition of Yaqub Kareem in Leeds.
The 24 year old poured the pressure onto the former title holder from Nigeria and a sickening left hook to the body at the start of the third round was too much for the visitor to recover from. (more…)

Vermont junior middleweight Chis Gilbert (12-1, 9 KOs) edged previously undefeated Steven Matthews (4-1, 2 KOs) by way of an eight-round decision in Thursday night’s main event on the 13th annual Fight To Educate Pro-Am show at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire. Matthews, fighting out of Greensboro (NC), held a decisive advantage early in the fight until Gilbert caught him with a powerful right that sent him to the canvas for the lone knockdown of the evening. Matthews barely beat the count and was saved by the bell. The two fighters went back and forth the remainder of the fight in which the single knockdown was the difference (76-75 on all three judges’ scorecards. (more…)
WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez and Jorge “Travieso” Arce faced off Thursday at the final press conference of their mini-tour to promote their historic October 4 showdown at the brand new 8,000 capacity Multipurpose Center in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. Arce is aiming at a world title in a sixth division.
Jhonny Gonzalez: “I respect the championships that Arce has won, his career, his dedication in the ring, but I want to say to him that on October 4, I will come with a preparation and force like never before and will defeat a boxing great in front of his own people. He has the heart of a warrior that has given him key victories in his career, but he’s taken many blows. I’ve faced several opponents with similar characteristics to “Travieso” and for that we prepare ourselves.”
Jorge Arce: “You are welcome to this land of champions Los Mochis, Sinaloa. On October 4 you’ll bring the title and you’ll get well looked after, but you’ll be defeated and leave without the belt because I’ll win. You cannot defeat me in front of my people and all those who have supported me and have made this historic boxing event possible. Winning on October 4, it is the only word that’s in my mind and I will not retire because I will win.”
It’s on. Jimmy Lange vs. Tony “Mo Better” Jeter — Part Two.
Two of the DMV’s most popular boxers will square off again in a highly anticipated, 10-round rematch on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 at Patriot Center, Jimmy Lange Boxing officials announced Thursday. The North America Boxing Association’s (NABA) vacant USA Middleweight belt, as well as the possibility of moving up in the World Boxing Association’s (WBA) ratings, will be on the line as well. The middleweights first faced off on October 27, 2012 in Fairfax with Jeter pulling off the upset of the former Contender TV series star by way of split decision (91-94, 94-91, 93-92). The controversial back-and-forth battle sparked immediate debate and conversation throughout the region, setting the scene for a return engagement. (more…)

On the heels of its fourteenth consecutive event in Phoenix, Iron Boy Promotions branches out to El Paso, Texas, where it promises to deliver the same quality boxing cards as it has in Arizona. Fight night is set to take place Friday, October 10th at the El Paso Coliseum. In the main event bout, Michael Finney (12-1, 10KO) returns to the ring to showcase his devastating punching power. “I competed in Texas as an amateur, and am really looking forward to fighting in front of a Texas crowd,” said Finney on fighting for the first time as a professional in Texas. “It’s a privilege to be fighting in the main event, and I’m going to put on a great show for the fans in Texas.” (more…)

American Jay Nady will be the third man in the ring when Mexican WBC super flyweight world champion Carlos Cuadras (30-0, 24 KOs) defends against his compatriot challenger and former champ Jose Salgado (34-2-1, 27 KOs) on Saturday at the Estadio de Beisbol in Guamuchil, Sinaloa, Mexico. The three judges are from Mexico: Porfirio Gomez, Victor Cervantes and Juan Carlos Pelayo.
“I am giving Roman Gonzalez till October 1, 2014 to officially confirm fighting me and face his fate vs. me in the ring — in the location of his choice,” says WBO #7 strawweight Ali Raymi who recently announced that he’s moving up to flyweight after compiling a 22-0 record with 22 KOs, including a record 21 straight first round knockouts in the 105-pound division.
“He has no excuse to duck me other than pure fear. After intimidating Roman Gonzalez I no longer have anything to prove. Cowards will still find excuses for Roman to feast on journeyman Luis Concepcion, but my place in history is secured as The Greatest Ever puncher who KOed every human he faced and pushed pretenders and the so called master boxers into hiding. My decision to retire in the event of uneventful peace is proper, as I no longer have anybody to fight and the pretenders are not brave enough to face me.”
The final press conference was held Thursday for the double world title card taking place Saturday night at the Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana, BC, Mexico. In the main event, Orlando “Siri” Salido (41-12-2, 28 KOs) faces Terdsak “Pit Bull” Kokietgym (53-4-1, 33 KOs) for the vacant WBO interim jr lightweight belt (ordered due to the inactivity of WBO 130lb champion Mikey Garcia).
In the second world title fight, Javier “Cobrita” Mendoza (21-2-1, 18 KOs) meets Ramon “Principe” Garcia Hirales (20-4-1, 12 KOs) for the vacant IBF jr flyweight title (vacated when John Riel Casimero lost the title on the scale in May).
Orlando Salido: “I come with excellent preparation, ready for a war because I know that my opponent is strong and aggressive and I don’t want to disappoint the demanding and noble fans of Tijuana that have received me marvelously.
Terdsak Kokietgym: “I had a very strong preparation, a lot of physical work and tactics and I will do everything to achieve my goal of becoming the world champion. Respect to Salido, who is a brave Mexican who has faced the world’s best, but now this is my time.” (more…)

Garrett Wilson: I want to thank Main Events for having me back on the card and Foxwoods for hosting this event. I have nothing but respect for Mchunu, he is an awesome fighter.

Sources close to the Paul Spadafora camp have disclosed that a contract has been received to fight Ruslan Providnikov in Russia on December 6th, with a venue to be disclosed at a later date. Provodnikov would be looking for a dance partner to get back on track after losing to Chris Algieri earlier in the year. Provodnikov has one fight left with HBO and this would not be that fight. The enigmatic Spadafora made a nice comeback run that culminated with a loss in a WBA eliminator against Johan Perez. Spadafora was 48-0-1 before the Perez loss.
Jr welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (21-1, 14 KO) has signed with famed boxing manager Cameron Dunkin. “Several managers offered me good deals,” said Dulorme, “but Cameron Dunkin was the one I liked. By the end of the year I’ll be back in the ring. I can’t give a date because they are squaring up a few details, but soon you’ll hear a lot from me.”
Dulorme, currently ranked WBA #2, WBC #4, IBF #4 and WBO #5, is coming off a unanimous decision over Karim Mayfield last March on HBO. His trainer is Robert Garcia.
Due to an unforeseen development where the New York Building Department unexpectedly closed the Master Theater, tonight’s Star of David Boxing card is postponed.
Information on the re-scheduled date will be announced as soon as it becomes available.

WBA bantamweight super champion Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno invited the press to his last public workout on Thursday morning at his own gym Chikibox in Panama City, Panama prior to his travel to Texas to face Dominican challenger Juan Payano. “I will travel on Sunday morning along with my main trainer Celso Chavez, assistant Raul Rodriguez and Carlos Gonzalez from my managerial team. I’m planning to travel on 120 pounds after almost four months of preparation.”
Moreno’s wife and manager, Rouss, expressed her confidence on the team of officials named by WBA, headed by Puerto Rican referee Luis Pabon and judges Alfredo Polanco from Mexico, Rafael Ramos from USA and Cesar Ramos from Puerto Rico.
“Lightning” Rod Salka (19-4, 3 KOs) returns to lightweight to defend his WBC Fecarbox belt in a scheduled ten rounder against Monty Meza Clay (36-3-2, 22 KOs) on Friday, November 14th at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburg, PA. Salka is looking to get back into the win column in front of the hometown crowd following his brutal KO loss to junior welterweight king, Danny Garcia on August 9th in Brooklyn. Meza Clay returns after an epic tenth round stoppage of Alan Herrera on August 8th at the same venue. In the main event, undefeated southpaw Sammy “The Who Can Mexican” Vasquez Jr. (16-0, 12 KOs) will defend his newly attained IBF/USBA welterweight belt against Alberto “Matralleta” Mosquera (21-1-2, 14 KOs) in a ten rounder. Tickets start at $42, available Saturday.
Undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior middleweight champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (21-0, 14 KOs) and his team are patiently waiting to hear about his next fight. Negotiations are ongoing between Andrade’s co-promoters, Banner Promotions and Star Boxing, with Top Rank and HBO officials regarding a potential fight for a vacant WBO middleweight title fight against No. 1 contender and unbeaten Russian Olympian, Matt Korobov. Andrade was also mentioned by Golden Boy Promotions president Oscar de la Hoya as one of three potential candidates to fight junior middleweight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
“We want to thank all of loyal fans for their support,” Andrade’s head trainer and father Paul Andrade said. “They are the only ones who understand how our backs have been put against the wall. Everybody in boxing seemed to react to the news about Demetrius fighting Korobov for the vacant 160-pound WBO title. I’d like to get the facts straight. We were not aware of that fight, nor were we aware of the petition to the WBO to move up to fight for its middleweight title. I spoke to Artie Pelullo (Banner Promotions), who informed me that an opportunity had popped up, and that he wanted to beat (Bob) Arum (Top Rank) to the punch. He couldn’t get a hold of us in advance but he has left us an option to take a fight. (more…)
The recently announced junior featherweight bout between Southern California favorite Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz and Mexican warrior Raul Hidalgo has been elevated from the co-main event to the main event for the Monday, Sept. 29 Golden Boy Live! fight night from the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas due to an injury suffered by former light heavyweight world champion Antonio Tarver. Tarver, who was scheduled to face Johnathon Banks in a 10-round heavyweight bout on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes, injured his thumb during training camp. “The injury actually happened two and a half weeks ago and I’ve been trying my hardest to work through it. Finally my doctor ordered an X-ray and we found out it was a fracture,” Tarver said of his injury.
Tarver added, “I’m very disappointed I won’t get to face Johnathon Banks, but hopefully we will be able to reschedule this fight with him for a later date. I was ready to make a statement with this fight, and I’ll be back as soon as I can.” Tarver still plans to be in Texas, however, to witness his son Antonio Jr.’s professional debut. The remainder of the televised portion of the card will feature a co-main event between New Mexican junior welterweight Fidel “The Atrisco Kid” Maldonado Jr. (18-2, 15 KOs) and an opponent to be determined, as well as junior welterweight Ricardo “Dinamita” Alvarez (23-3, 13 KOs) in the televised opener against an opponent to be determined.
“The show must go on,” said Oscar De La Hoya, founder and president of Golden Boy Promotions. “The loss of the Tarver vs. Banks fight is a disappointment, but fans in the State Farm Arena and those watching at home on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes will not be disappointed.”
Alistair Overeem and Stefan Struve, two of the most feared strikers in the heavyweight division, verbally agreed on Wednesday to throw down at Fight Night Phoenix on Dec. 13 – the UFC’s first trip to Arizona . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

In Japan there are many so-called or self-proclaimed geniuses, and we wonder who really the genius is. Our mass media sometimes misunderstands that “unbeaten” is synonymous with “genius”. There shouldn’t be so many geniuses at all. Though once beaten in his previous bout, however, two-time world champ Kazuto Ioka might be duly or possibly called genius thanks to his offensive and defensive excellence. Ioka (15-1, 9 KOs), 112, appeared for the first time since he failed to win his third world belt in the flyweight category from Amnat Ruenroeng and tasted his career-first setback this May, and defeated WBA#14 Colombian Pablo Carillo (15-3-1, 8 KOs), 112, by a unanimous decision over ten hard-fought rounds on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. The official tallies were 98-92, 99-91 and 99-93, all in favor of the 25-year-old ex-champ. But it wasn’t an easy triumph for Kazuto, the nephew of formerly two-time world champ Hiroki Ioka, as he had a tough time coping with the aggressive and agile Colombian whose durability was beyond description. Moving to-and-fro and side-to-side, Ioka, a Sugar Ray Leonard admirer, kept outspeeding and outpunching the shorter Carillo, who showed his constant retaliation despite yielding the initiative to the Japanese. The eighth saw Carillo come out fighting with roundhouse shots, which occasionally forced Ioka to backpedal and circle to avert his furious attack. But Ioka was in command in the last two sessions and confirmed his victory over the much stronger opponent than expected. Ioka is gunning for a shot at a world flyweight championship in December.
