Now he stated that he has no longer had any problem with his health and he’s already well prepared for this fight, and ready to prove that he deserves to win the fight against Juarez, rescheduled on September 19 in MGM Grand, Las Vegas, as the co-feature bout of JM Marquez vs Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Fightwriter on Jones vs. Lacy

By Graham Houston

When Roy Jones Jr. outclassed James Toney in 1994 I doubt if anyone watching could possibly have imagined that he would still be fighting 15 years later at the age of 40 — but he is. Jones is one of those older fighters who can’t stay away from the game. Ask him why he is still fighting and he might tell you that he sees his ability as a gift from the Almighty, adding: “Who am I to refuse a gift from God?” . . . Click here for more

Green Feels The Heat In Biloxi!

By Craig Watt

Whilst it was an overcast 60° F/16° C in his hometown of Perth, Western Australia today, former WBA light-heavyweight champion Danny Green faced a 91° F/33° C environment (104° F/40° C factoring in humidity) in his training camp in Biloxi, Mississippi in preparation for his IBO cruiserweight title clash against Argentinean Julio Cesar Dominguez on Saturday. However, this did not deter the 36-year-old Green (26-3, 23 KOs) from turning in an impressive sparring session with former NABA super middleweight champion Anthony Greenidge over eight rounds. Green stated from his US base, “It was over forty degrees over here today in Biloxi and I am sure I lost 4kg in the session.

Nonito Donaire: “I’ve seen one video of Concepcion. He has a lot of heart which tells me he can be very dangerous inside the ring. I am going to rely on my speed and power to get through this one. Before I leave the 115 pound division, I want to fight Jorge Arce and Fernando Montiel. Those two are on my mind and it doesn’t matter who is first.”

Rafael Concepcion: “I know Las Vegas and I know there will be Latino fans in the arena rooting for me on Saturday night. There will be Mexican fans for sure on my side. I’ve trained hard and I will win. Panama fighters do not lose to Filipinos. We’re 4-0 in title fights.”

A near capacity crowd filled the Ballroom at Bally’s Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey hoping to witness another exciting knockout by powerful undefeated, NABA welterweight title holder Mike “MJ” Jones as he faced late replacement Lenin Arroyo. To their surprise, they witnessed one hell of a gutsy performance by Arroyo (20-10-1, 5 KOs), who took almost everything the powerful Philly welterweight could dish out and fought back even though completely outgunned in losing a one sided ten round unanimous decision to Mike Jones (18-0, 15 KOs), which had the crowd on their feet in appreciation for his effort as the fight came to a close. The seven bout card promoted by Russell Peltz of Peltz Boxing Promotions also featured the return of super middleweight Jerson Ravelo (20-4, 12 KOs), who captured a lackluster eight round unanimous decision victory over Willis “The Prophet Lockett (12-9-5, 5 KOs).

Campillo camp denies option claim

Sampson Boxing LLC, Sampson Lewkowicz, and WBA light heavyweight champion Gabriel Campillo say they have never been given notice of any lawsuit or served with any order from any court in Spain. According to a statement from the Campillo camp, Sampson Boxing, LLC is the exclusive sole promoter of Campillo and he never signed any options with Universum and their name was never mentioned to Campillo. “What Universum is stating is completely false and Gabriel Campillo has nothing signed with Universum or anybody else,” said Lewkowicz. “The options Campillo was presented before the fight against Garay were from a different promoter and he refused to sign because the terms were unfair. Further, the unfair options proposed were against the rules of the United States and the Muhammad Ali Act. I challenge Universum to show and present the signature of Gabriel Campillo on any documentation that they claim to have. The WBA has nothing to do with options and the champion Campillo has been allowed to take an interim title defense against Beibut Shumenov before his mandatory, Vyacheslav Uzelkov. The WBA has officially approved and sanctioned the WBA light heavyweight title fight between Campillo and Shumenov.” The fight between Campillo and Shumenov will take place Saturday night at the Sport Complex “Daulet” National Tennis Center in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Now I’ve reached a point where I want to stand on my own feet.” BILD reports that Universum apparently has an option to extend Sturm’s contract for another three years, although Sturm is not acknowledging that and his manager Roland Bebak says lawyers tell him the clause is invalid. Meanwhile, Universum issued a statement saying Sturm has not contacted them personally on the issue, but they have a valid contract with Sturm and this will be fulfilled by both sides.

Universum wins Campillo case

Brähmer now fighting for the WBA world title?

On the occasion of to the world title defense of Universum fighter Hugo Hernan Garay (Argentina) on June 20th 2009 in Santa Fe (Argentina) against Gabriel Campillo Pessy (Spain), Universum had granted the exclusive option to host the fights of the Spanish challenger in case he wins. Campillo won this title bout and was crowned the new WBA light heavyweight world champion. Campillo had recently announced that he would defend his WBA title on August 15 in Kazakhstan against Beibut Shumenov but this was a violation of the exclusive option of Universum in hosting the fights. A claim of Universum was confirmed by a Spanish civil court that prohibits Campillo to do so.

With this court order, a new alternative has been presented for Universum boxer Jürgen Brähmer in order to go after his big dream and become world champion. He could fight for the full WBA title on August 22 against Campillo as he currently is #1 WBA rated contender. A possible alternative has been accepted by the WBO that Brähmer could fight on the same day for the WBO Interim world championship against stablemate Aleksy Kuziemski. A decision about this situation will happen within the next few days.

Gall stones KO Samil Sam

Comeback postponed to December

Sinan Samil Sam has to postpone his comeback again. The two-time European heavyweight champion and former world amateur champion has been kept out of the ring for more than a year now by different illnesses and injuries. “The Bull from Bosporus” had planned to make his comeback in early October. Now Sam had to undergo surgery because of gall stones. “The doctors said Sinan cannot train for another six weeks”, says promoter Ahmet Öner. “It’s too bad because he desperately wanted to get back into the ring. But we cannot take any risks here. Sinan isn’t a young man anymore. He needs his time for preparation; especially because we are looking for a world class opponent for his comeback.” Originally the reigning IBF intercontinental champion was meant to defend his title against Kali Meehan in October. There were also talks about a rematch of his European championship bout against Paolo Vidoz. In July 2008 Sam had beaten Vidoz by split decision. “We will see what the IBF and the EBU will decide”, states Öner. “Sinan will be back in December and he will be ready for a big fight then but there is no chance that he will be back in action before that.”

Japan world title schedule!

By Joe Koizumi

Despite our notorious humid summer weather, frequent earthquakes, onrushing typhoons and nationwide recession, our Japanese boxing impresarios seem to be active enough. The following is the schedule of world title promotions from this month on:
—–
On August 23, in Osaka, WBA female minimum champ, unbeaten Etsuko Tada (5-0, 2 KOs), a southpaw sharpshooter, will make her initial defense against also unbeaten PABA titlist Yani Kokietgym (6-0, no KO), Thailand, over ten frames. Tada, one of the most brilliant girls here, had compiled an excellent amateur mark of 47-3, gaining many national championships prior to her entry into the paid ranks. Yani also had a good amateur ledger of 30-5, and acquired the PABA belt in her fifth pro bout. Yani, eight years her junior at 20, may show a good and hot performance against the Japanese Million Dollar Baby.
—–
On August 30, in Osaka, WBA#4 Nobuhiro Ishida (20-5-2, 7 KOs), a Japanese six-footer, will face #5 Venezuelan veteran Marco Avendano (27-6-1, 19 KOs) for the vacant WBA interim 154-pound belt. The full WBA champ is Daniel Santos, Puerto Rico, who lately participated in a purse bidding with official challenger Yuri Foreman. This WBA interim title go may be very problematic, since they are not the leading available contenders and it is still uncertain whether the WBA really sanctioned it as the interim championship bout. Will Santos be obliged to face the winner and interim champ after this eliminator? Avendano, last September, dropped Ishida with a solid right, but lost a controversial split decision (115-114, 114-115 and 113-115) in a self-proclaimed eliminator in Osaka. Since then, neither Ishida (33) nor Avendano (36) has fought for eleven months before their rematch.
—–
On September 30, in Osaka, WBA super-fly champ Nobuo Nashiro (13-1, 8 KOs), Japan, will defend his belt against top contender Hugo Casares (30-6-1, 22 KOs) in a mandatory defense. Nashiro, in his second reign, decked his first defense by displaying a come-from-behind TKO win over ex-OPBF ruler Konosuke Tomiyama in eight give-and-take rounds this April.
—–
On October 6, WBA flyweight champ Denkaosen Kaowichit Kratindaeng-gym (47-1-1, 20 KOs), Thailand, will put his belt on the line against Daiki Kameda (14-1, 10 KOs), Japan, in Osaka. The 20-year-old Daiki had been suspended for a year because of his tremendously dirty fighting against WBC champ Daisuke Naito with the world belt at stake in Tokyo in October 2007. After his comeback Daiki scored four wins in a row. We just wonder why Denkaosen will not face the WBA top contender Koki Kameda, Daiki’s elder brother.
—–
All the four world title bouts, if including the disputed Ishida-Avendano one, will take place in Osaka, where there have happened shameful internal conflicts among promoters and managers in the JPBA (Japan Professional Boxing Association; the union of licensed managers). We hope all will be held smoothly and successfully without any cancellation.
