Chavez-Vera rematch in December?

By Karl Freitag

Artie Pelullo, promoter of WBO #1 ranked middleweight Bryan Vera, said today that discussions are already underway for a December rematch between Vera and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. “We’re talking to Bob (Arum),” said Pelullo. “We’re talking to HBO about a December date. And should HBO not be in a financial position to pay for this event, Bob and I are discussing a pay-per-view event for December.” Pelullo also stated that if the bout takes place, it would be in Vera’s home state of Texas, and he would get more involved in the selection of officials.

“Bob did talk to Junior,” added Pelullo, “he said he was interested in a rematch and I think he needs to do it because his own fan base is giving him a hard time. There are many reports down in Mexico that they’re disappointed with him, he didn’t win the fight, he got a gift, and that world down there it’s very important to be macho, to be stand-up, so I actually think the rematch has a very good chance to come forward. There’s no fights for him right now between now and the end of the year or January or February as other guys are tied up so this would also help us get the rematch.”

Alexander Povetkin: Why should I talk trash now?

Story and photos Przemek Garczarczyk

Three days before his heavyweight title showdown with IBF/WBO/IBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at Moscow’s Olympic Sportkomplex, unbeaten Alexander Povetkin worked out for the media at “DR Loder” Fitness Club and then answered reporters’ questions. This was, for both fighters, the last public appearance before Friday’s weigh in. Here’s what the “Russian Knight” said today:

In recent days we didn’t hear anything from you anything in the media. It’s said that you refuse to be distracted by the media, especially in such big events.

Yes, I was fully focused on the preparation for this fight. I don’t like to be distracted and today I am here to meet the media and to do the public workout. I appreciate anybody who supports me and I’m glad that my supporters are here. (more…)

Court ruling supports UFC’s fight to legalize MMA in New York

The Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), and plaintiffs in the Jones v. Schneiderman case, are pleased to announce that yesterday the Federal District Court found that their challenge to the constitutionality of New York’s ban on mixed martial arts (MMA) can go forward. The court recognized that the State Athletic Commission and the Attorney General have repeatedly changed position on whether amateur and professional MMA can occur lawfully in the state of New York, which plaintiffs argue renders the ban unconstitutionally vague. While other claims in the lawsuit were dismissed, the UFC and plaintiffs are prepared to win their case and defeat the ban with the court’s green light on the vagueness challenge. (more…)

Fresh off his victory against Lucas Matthysse, Danny Garcia, the current WBA, WBC and Transnational junior welterweight champion, spoke to the press briefly and reveled his desire to get back into the ring plus commented on a possible fight against Floyd Mayweather Junior.

Speaking on how he defeated Lucas Matthysse and the rumors about a rematch:

Hard work, good training camp and good sparring partners. Even though I’m a younger fighter, I have more experience than him in a championship fight and fought good opposition before so I think that played a big part. Just the hard work and the confidence. I’m not really interested in a rematch. He wasn’t the champion.

On working with his father Angel Garcia:

We’ve always been elite. (We have) good chemistry and we know how to win. (more…)

Immediate rematch in London if Sturm beats Barker

Darren Barker and Felix Sturm’s teams struck an agreement where the Londoner faces the former WBA champion in December 7 in Germany with a return fight in London scheduled for March at Barker’s option.

“We have been in discussions with Felix Sturm’s team since the Daniel Geale fight, and with purse bids approaching they made their intentions quite clear,” said Barker’s promoter Eddie Hearn. “Felix is the fight we want both financially and from a legacy perspective and once we were able to introduce our necessary demands, which included a potential second fight in the UK and neutral officials, then this was an opportunity Darren could not turn down. Even though defeat would lead to an immediate rematch in London, we are all confident that Darren will defend his title in style on December 7 in Germany.”

The pair will come face-to-face at a press conference in Stuttgart next Wednesday with a London press conference the following day.

Freddie Roach: I thought Chavez lost the fight, he got a gift

Roach spoke about training Miguel Cotto, plus gave his views on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.’s most recent fight and Manny Pacquiao’s upcoming showdown with Brandon Rios in Macau, China, and much more.

I watched it last night for the first time, I didn’t have HBO at my house (laughs). My TV room is under construction so I watched it last night. I thought he lost the fight. He got a gift. He didn’t look too good in the fight and he needs to get back down to 160 or 168 lbs and take things serious to be a contender with the top people in the world.

Ito wins WBC youth 135lb Belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

Unbeaten Japanese, JBC#12 Masayuki Ito (12-0-1, 4 KOs), 134.75, acquired the vacant WBC youth lightweight belt as he lopsidedly battered Filipino southpaw Jeffrey Arienza (9-2-1, 4 KOs), 135, and finally halted him at 1:22 of the tenth and final session on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The light-punching but busy Japanese youngster took the initiative from the outset, and piled up points with ease. His faster combinations were effective enough to prevent Arienza from turning the tables. Ito, in round nine, furiously accelerated his attack to finish him and bring home the bacon but temporarily lost his equilibrium, when the Filipino caught him with a countering left. Ito touched the canvas to suffer a flash knockdown, but he went on whipping the fading Filipino foe. The final stanza saw Ito overwhelm him with an unanswered rally that prompted the referee Fukuchi’s intervention.

Ricky Hatton sparring again, but no comeback planned

Former world champion turned trainer Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton swapped his focus pads for gloves on Friday morning and did several rounds with Ryan Burnett in order to sharpen him up for his appearance on the undercard of Carl Frampton’s clash with Jeremy Parodi on October 19. And Hatton says it’s something he’ll be doing with all his boxers from now on. “Because of my retirement I’ll never be a slim Jim, but it was good to get in there and do a few rounds,” Ricky said. “What better way of training the lads is there than sparring? By getting in the ring I can see if they’re dropping their left hand or making any other mistakes their opponents can take advantage of. When I hit them on the chin it hits home and I can’t teach them that kind of lesson with the pads. here’s some great trainers out there, but I can’t think of one who’d be willing to do some sparring with their lads. I’ll be doing it with all my mine from now on.”

Despite his enjoyment of sparring again, ‘The Hitman’ was quick to rule out another comeback. “There’s no chance of me fighting again. I’m very happy with the career I had and all achieved so I’m going to leave it at that. Although the result didn’t go my way, I got what I wanted from the fight with Senchenko. I proved I could go straight back in with a former world champion and I’m proud of that.”

Former WBF junior welterweight champion Ali Funeka from East London smashed Jason Bedeman of Johannesburg to defeat at 2 minutes 46 seconds of the first round before a packed house at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Monday night in a scheduled six round junior welterweight bout. The 35-year-old Funeka (63.32kg) who has fought at much higher level than the lesser experienced 24-year-old Bedeman (63.50kg) using his longer reach dropped Bedeman with right hand over his left jab midway through the round. Soon afterwards the same punch sent Bedeman down again where he remained in a sitting position to be counted out by referee Simon Xamlashe. Bedeman had to receive medical attention before leaving the ring. Funeka improves his record to 33-4-3, 27 KOs and Bedeman’s record drops to 17-2, 14 KOs.

Russian businessman Andrey Ryabinsky, CEO of MIC Group of Companies and the man behind upcoming heavyweight clash between WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 52 KOs) and WBA “regular” champion Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18 KOs) talks about his plans after October 5 – including launching his own promotional company. Should Top Rank, Golden Boy, K2 Promotions, Sauerland Event, Frank Warren, Matchroom and Main Events, just to name a few, be taking a long, hard look at what’s going on in Moscow? “Many boxers have expressed desire to work with me as a promoter. I always speak and write frankly what I think. And at the same time, I realize that I’m not a 100-dollar bill to please absolutely everyone” – said Ryabinsky, instantly proving his words in an interview with ‘The Championnat.’

“I’ve already registered my own promotional company. It’ already here and it’s called “World Boxing,” said Ryabinsky. “Nobody will be signed before October 5. Klitschko-Povetkin is something very big I have to take care of, to finish strong. As a fan, I’m a Sasha (short for Alexander) supporter, but as a promoter, I’m first and foremost interested that everything will be done perfectly on October 5. Of course, we’re also talking about fighters I want to sign. It doesn’t matter if Povetkin wins or loses, I will start my promotional activities immediately after October 5. (more…)
