Huck and Afolabi don’t hold back at final presser

WBO World Champion Marco Huck (35-2-1, 25 KOs) and his challenger Ola Afolabi (19-2-4, 9 KOs) have already entered fight mode. During Wednesday´s press conference, three days before the top-notch cruiserweights square off inside the ring, they got involved into a verbal altercation.

28-year-old Huck accused his opponent of provoking him on purpose. “He is just trying to rattle my cage and is hoping that it will cause me to make mistakes,” said the prodigy of coach Ulli Wegner. “But he is fighting a losing battle. I am the champion and I will still be the champion after the fight. I will give him my answers inside the ring.” And the German was not done yet. “I proved before that I can beat him. But he cannot beat me. I know that I am better than he is. I also have a better fan base behind me, who will be celebrating another victory with me after I am done with that guy.” (more…)

Fonfara starts Campillo training camp

Text and video: Przemek Garczarczyk

“I feel fantastic. Fixing my injured right hand, getting surgery was the best thing that could happen to me. Now I can can hit with full power and not worry what will happen next,” – said IBO light heavyweight champion, 25-year old Andrzej Fonfara (23-2, 13 KOs) in a Fightnews.com interview. On August 16 Fonfara is expected to headline the show at Chicago White Sox Stadium against former WBA titlist Gabriel Campillo (21-5, 8 KOs). “I understand all the expectations, but I like the pressure aof tough fight. Campillo fought the best – twice Shumenow, Cloud, Murat – you name it, all these guys were in very tough fight with him but this is what makes it special for me. Of course fighting in front of my hometown fans at such a special venue like US Cellular Field is something else altogether. We have more than two months until fight but I can feel like I can fight Campillo today. In couple of days I’m leaving for a 2 week Florida training camp, than back to Chicago. Can’t wait,” said Fonfara.

The August 16 event will be broadcast by ESPN2 and also showcase a rematch of the very entertaining clash between 24-year-old Polish heavyweight hope,Artur “The Pin” Szpilka (14-0, 11 KOs) and another Chicago hometown favorite, “Merciless” Mike Mollo (20-4, 12 KOs).

‘Tank’ aims to spoil football player’s boxing dream

Heavyweight Sherman “Tank” Williams has taken his act across the country to Carson, California for Saturday night’s eight round fight against former professional football player Gerald Washington (7-0, 5 KOs), at Home Depot Center. Williams-Washington is on the undercard of a Golden Boy Promotions event, headlined by a major fight between Marcus Maidana and Joselito Lopez, which is airing on Showtime Championship Boxing.

A year ago, Williams (35-12-2, 19 KOs), a bonafide Bahamian sports legend, traveled halfway around the world to Macau, China to defeat Chauncy “Hillyard Hammer”Welliver (53-5-5, 20 KOs) for the WBO Asia Pacific and WBO Asian Boxing Council Championships. Williams’ last fight was a loss by decision last November to undefeated heavyweight contender Robert Helenius (17-0) in Finland. (more…)

Albuquerque’s Fidel Maldonado in comeback, throwback mode

Fidel Maldonado, aka "The Atrisco Kid"Story and photos by Chris Cozzone

You’re not likely to find a community as stubborn as the town of Atrisco, which hugs Albuquerque’s west side just south of Route 66. Settled by Spaniards in 1598 and fortified by a 1692 land grant that still continues to legally challenge the system, Atrisco is a living, breathing throwback of a town. Within its winding streets, over and around the ditches for which it is known, lives and trains another throwback, with a throwback name.

Technically an Atrisqueño, rather than an Albuquerquean, Fidel Maldonado has, for years, fought under the nom de guerre the “Atrisco Kid.”  . . . Click here for full story

By Felipe Leon

The well-known adage is that you can’t teach an old dog new trick. As far as the thirty-year old Alfredo “Perro” Angulo (22-2, 18KOs) he is neither old nor capable of learning something new. After nearly eight months in an immigration detention center, Angulo of Mexicali, Mexico, was released last July and instead of going back to his old haunts in Los Angeles and its surroundings, he looked north for his next trainer and hooked up with Virgil Hunter, best known for helming the camps of Andre Ward and Amir Khan among others.

On Saturday, June 8th, from the Home Depot Center and broadcast live on Showtime, they will participate in their third bout together when Angulo faces once-beaten slick Cuban boxer Erislandy Lara (17-1-2, 11KO) in a twelve round clash for the interim WBA light middleweight title. The bout presented by Golden Boy Promotions will be the semi-main event for the much anticipated welterweight face-off between Marcos “Chino” Maidana and Josesito Lopez.

“I come up for a couple of weeks and then Virgil goes down to LA for couple of weeks,” Angulo said when asked about the arrangement with his Oakland, CA, based trainer. “Thank God camp has been going great just like the other past two.” (more…)

Sherrington-Perez press conference

smithys300
WBF world middleweight champion and WBO #8 Les “Lock N Load” Sherrington today came face to face with Jorge Gomez Perez, his opponent this Friday night at Rumours International in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. The Paraguayan super middleweight champion showed no lack of confidence, sporting a NSW Blues jersey into maroon territory at today’s media conference on the day of the opening State of Origin game. “I know Les is a strong fighter, but I have been preparing for this for 5 months” said Perez. “I won the Paraguay title 3 weeks ago but I have not stopped thinking about this fight, I know I will do well.” Sherrington however believed it may be a disappointing trip for the Paraguayan “It was a ballsy move to wear a blue jersey to a media conference in Queensland on a day like this,” said Sherrington. “I know he is fit and ready but so am I, I have had a great prep and can’t wait to show everybody my new skills on Friday night.”
