Froch says Groves won’t get under his skin

Carl Froch told Sky Sports’ Behind The Ropes that George Groves has been ‘dining out on his round one knockdown against The Cobra’ and that he won’t let the challenger get under his skin in their rematch for Froch’s WBA and IBF World Super Middleweight titles on Saturday at Wembley Stadium connected by EE, live on Sky Sports Box Office and HBO. Sky Sports gained exclusive access to both camps ahead of the huge clash and tonight on Sky Sports 1 at 7pm we see the first of the two-part 30 minute fly-on-the-wall looks at how these two bitter rivals are shaping up for the biggest fight in British boxing history.

Froch stopped Groves in controversial circumstances in Manchester in November having climbed off the canvas in the opening round to halt the Londoner in the ninth round. ‘The Cobra’ told Sky Sports that he believes that ‘Saint George’ has been living off the first round success in the build up to the rematch.

“George Groves has been going to the opening of an envelope, dinning out on his round one knockdown against The Cobra and giving it large,” said Froch. “But that’s his prerogative if he is enjoying the moment his little time his little five minutes of fame then you know he should do he should enjoy it, but really he should be concentrating on his fighting and his boxing.” (more…)

WBC female flyweight champion Go Shindo (14-2, 9 KOs), 112, successfully retained her belt as she controlled the action from the outset, accelerated a two-fisted attack and finally halted #11 Kledpetch Lookmuangkan (6-3, 1 KO), 110.5, with a barrage of unanswered punches at 0:19 of the eighth round on Sunday in Wakayama, Japan.

Steadily piling up points in every session, Shindo went all out for a finish in the seventh, which Thai judge Anek Hongtongkam tallied 10-8 for the champ though there were no knockdowns therein.

Matthew: You Gave Everything You Had!

saad-muhammad01Matthew Saad Muhammad, perhaps the most entertaining light-heavyweight in boxing history, passed away over the weekend at the age of 59. Promoter J Russell Peltz, International Boxing Hall of Fame class of 2004, recalls his days with Saad.

I was in my car Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh with my wife, Linda, and our grand-children and we were on our way to see the Pirates play at PNC Park when the call came in over the car-phone speaker. It was Eddie Mustafa Muhammad, calling from Las Vegas, to tell us that Matthew Saad Muhammad had passed away the night before.

Eddie boxed several times for me in the 1970s and 1980s and we have a friendship based on mutual respect. Eddie has become a ‘keeper-of-the-flame’ for the fighters of his era and in January, 2011, he and his wife flew from Las Vegas to Philadelphia to attend Bennie Briscoe’s funeral, something I will never forget.

Saad Muhammad, the orphan who became world champion, gave you your money’s worth every time out and he did it during the light-heavyweight division’s finest era. There is no greater compliment you can give an athlete. (more…)

Bolonti warns “used up” Braehmer

WBA light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (43-2, 32 KOs) is still aiming for big and career-defining fights. However, before all that can happen he has to defend his belt on June 7 in his hometown of Schwerin, Germany, against upset-minded Argentinian Robert “La Bestia” Bolonti (35-2, 24 KOs), who has sent the champion a stern warning: “Both of us might be 35 years of age but he has been in far tougher fights than me,” stated Bolonti. “I am simply fresher and not used up like him. When the fight between us starts to get tough, my advantages will get bigger and bigger over the rounds. In addition, I can punch hard with both my right and left hand. Braehmer will not know what is happening to him…I am a real warrior inside the squared circle, devote myself and fight on until the fight is over. I will make this clear to Braehmer as soon as the first bell rings…I will not respect Braehmer as the champion inside the ring and will wrest the title away from him. I will fulfill my dream – for my family, friends and fatherland. Viva Argentina!”

The final press conference for the IBF world middleweight championship rematch between Felix Sturm and Sam Soliman took place earlier today at the Hotel Landhaus Milser in Duisburg, Germany. The bout will take place Saturday at the KoenigPALAST in Krefeld, Germany.

Felix Sturm, IBF World Middleweight Champion: “I’m not mad or anything. I don’t care about that whole doping theatre anymore. He and his team have to live with that. He’s trying to play games once again but that doesn’t matter to me. I had a perfect preparation and I am in tip-top shape.

I had to do this fight since he is my mandatory challenger. But that is a good thing because I can make things right. People will forget about the first fight after this one. Back after I fought Soliman last February, I changed my whole attitude towards the sport of boxing. I’m now eating clean and healthy, which makes training a whole lot easier. I know live like an athlete all year around and not only the ten or twelve weeks during training camp. That pays off as I’m in a much, much better shape than before.

I’m looking forward to a great evening and an exciting fight on Saturday. As you know, the first title defense is always the most difficult. But I am the champion and believe me – I will remain the champion.”

Sam Soliman, mandatory challenger of the IBF: “If a plan is working, you shouldn’t change it. You should fix it to make it even better. That’s what I have done. I’m grateful to be back in Germany and to be able to fight for the IBF world title. I had perfect sparring during my camp in Denmark. I’ll be even better than the last time around. I will fulfill the dream of family, who’ll be ringside on Saturday, and become world middleweight champion.” (more…)

Full Report: Nava captures interim WBA strap with brilliant performance

By Felipe Leon

Despite her ring moniker of the “Aztec Princess”, Jackie Nava (29-4-3, 13KO) proved why she is the queen of not only of her hometown of Tijuana but of Mexico as she got up from a flash knockdown in the first to regain her bearing and annihilate Venezuelan Alys “China” Sanchez (12-2-1, 4KO) in the seventh round. With the win Nava, after twenty months of inactivity, mugged the interim WBA super bantamweight title from Sanchez in front of more than four thousand cheering fans at the Tijuana Municipal Auditorium. The electrifying performance topped a marathon thirteen-bout fight card with the main event broadcast live in Mexico by the Azteca channel.

In her last fight back in August of 2012 the thirty-four year old Nava defeated Lisa Brown via third round TKO. Nava then found herself away from the ring to give birth to her daughter Frida. Sanchez from Maracay, Venezuela, captured the interim strap by defeating Maria Elena Villalobos by ten round unanimous decision. In her last fight Sanchez lost a non-title fight by split decision to Carolina Arias back in October. (more…)

Nielsen: Nothing will get in the way of my world championship dream

Middleweight Patrick Nielsen (22-0, 11 KOs) is confident his world title dream will come true when he faces Dmitry Chudinov (12-0-2, 8 KOs) on June 1st in Moscow. “I see it all as a great experience. It will be an experience of a lifetime. I’m really excited to get my hands on a real world championship belt. This is my big chance and I’m not going home without that belt,” says Nielsen.

He has boxed three times in Germany, but the fight inside the Mytishchi Arena in Russia is by far his most challenging away test to date. “I will psyche myself up mentally to go into an arena where the crowd will boo me. But fortunately it’s not them I have to fight. It’s still one-on-one in the ring and I’ll be the best boxer in there. I feel mentally and physically ready. Everything has gone as planned. I’ve been getting some hard sparring from some top guys. I’m expecting Chudinov to be right in my face from the very beginning, but I’m prepared for that.

“It’s going to be a very even match, but overall I feel that I’m a better boxer. I’m not revealing anything about my tactics but I have a plan for how I will win. Nothing will get in the way of my world championship dream.”

Matthew Saad Muhammad – 1954-2014

By James Slater

In sad news, it has been reported that Matthew Saad Muhammad, the former light-heavyweight king from the 1980s, passed away in a hospital in his hometown of Philadelphia from unknown causes. Saad was just 59-years-old.

An absolute warrior in every sense of the word, Saad – born Maxwell Antonio Loach, originally fought under the name of Matthew Franklin but later changed his name for religious reasons in the ’80s – was known for taking unbelievable punishment in fights and somehow coming back to win. Turning pro in January of 1974 at the Spectrum in Philly, Saad would go on to capture the NABF 175-pound title with a 1977 stoppage win over Marvin Johnson (these two would meet again). In April of 1979, in Indianapolis, Saad TKO’d Johnson in the 8th to win the WBC crown. A number of thrillers already on his resume, Matthew would engage in plenty more. (more…)

Vitali Klitschko is new Mayor of Kiev

Ukraine media have reported that former world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has been elected Mayor of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine and the 8th largest city in Europe with a population of 2,847,200.

Official results aren’t yet available, but the call has been made based on exit polls where Vitali has an overwhelming lead over seven other candidates. Klitschko was one of the leaders in the Euromaidan protests that brought down the reign of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. For a time he was a candidate for president himself, but Vitali later withdrew and announced his support for Petro Poroshenko. This is the third time Klitschko has run for the office after previous bids in 2006 and 2008. (Big thanks to Andrij)

Stevenson: I showed the world because I’m a true champion

After the Saturday’s unanimous decision over Andrzej Fonfara, Adonis Stevenson told Showtime Sports’ ringside reporter Jim Gray, “(It was a) good fight. I hurt my left hand in the second round. He did very well. I threw the punch but I caught the elbow and I hurt my hand.”

Stevenson was satisfied with his victory despite getting knocked down. “Everyone gets knocked down. But I came back strong. I showed the world because I’m a true champion…I told everybody (Fonfara) is strong. He’s been training since December. He is ranked #1 and #3 in the world. He was ready for this fight. I never overlooked him because he’s a tough fighter.”

When asked by Gray about the prospect of fighting Bernard Hopkins and Sergey Kovalev, Stevenson said, “I accept any challenge. Bernard can be next. And I have no problem with Kovalev. If I fight him I fight him.”

Fonfara said, “I survived because I have the heart to fight. Every time he hit me I felt the punch. Tonight Stevenson is better. I’m still young. I’m only 26 years old. I’m training hard and one day I’ll be a world champion.”

Gary Sykes wins thriller and vacant British belt

By James Slater

Last night in his hometown of Dewsbury, Gary Sykes won the vacant British super-featherweight title with an up from the floor 10th-round TKO over Jon Kays. Sykes, who had out-pointed Kays in an earlier meeting last year, is now the outright owner of the coveted Lonsdale belt. 30-year-old Sykes suffered a cut above his right eye in the opening round, the result of a head clash, and he was put down in the 2nd. Undeterred, the local hero fought back hard and managed to pull the fight out in the 10th. At the time of the stoppage, Sykes was behind on two official score-cards, while the third judge had the fight all level after nine-rounds.

Sykes, though, not a noted banger, made the score-cards null and void in the 10th, when he wobbled Kays with a big right hand to the head, his follow-up blows forcing referee Michael Alexander to dive in and call a halt to the action. The time was 58-seconds into the 10th. Sykes is now 27-3(6). Kays, one year the older man, is now 18-4-1(4).
