Bizzarro Promotions returns to Erie, PA on Saturday

Ernie Bizzarro’s Bizzaro Promotions returns to Erie, PA with a night of outdoor boxing that is set for Saturday, September 5th at the Presque Isle Downs Casino featuring unbeaten bantamweight Antonio Nieves (12-0-1, 6 KOs) of Cleveland, OH against South Korea’s Tae Woong Jung (3-2-2, 3 KOs) in an eight round contest. Nieves looks to bounce back from his nationally televised draw on BET against the more experienced and highly touted former amateur star Stephon Young (14-0-2, 6 KOs). Standing in his way will be Jung who is making his first appearance on US soil.

It will be a homecoming for Nieves who knocked Hungarian Gabe Molnar (16-7, 10 KOs) in just a minute and fifty seven seconds in the main event of the inaugural Presque Isle Downs Casino and Bizzarro Promotions card back in June.

In the six round co-feature, lightweight knockout artist and Erie resident, Ramiro Hernandez (5-0, 5 KOs) looks to remain perfect as he takes on thirty-one fight veteran DeWayne Wisdom (6-24-1, 3 KOs) of Indianapolis, IN. (more…)

Joel Diaz comments on split with Bradley

Trainer Joel Diaz, who has trained current WBO welterweight champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley from day one before surprisingly being let go by Bradley over the weekend, has commented on the split via Instagram:

Joel Diaz: Don’t judge Tim for the decision he made. I knew it was not him making those changes, and he is right he would never disrespect me and my family. I got much respect for him and his father and mother. We started this together and we created something big together along with the team that started with us, but along the road people jump in the bus and change everything. Tim is a great person at heart, and he’s very humble, but it’s out of his hands. Too many negative approaches around him. God bless Tim Bradley. Wish you nothing but the best.

Groves: This is a one-sided fight

By Karl Freitag

WBC super middleweight world champion Badou Jack “The Ripper” and top 168-pound contender “Saint” George Groves hosted international media conference call Thursday in advance of their September 12 world championship showdown on the Floyd Mayweather vs. Andre Berto PPV undercard at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It was a tame call with both fighters politely expressing their confidence in victory. Groves, a slight -140 betting favorite, threw the best verbal jabs when the fighters discussed their respective losses.

Badou Jack: “I think I’m a smarter fighter than George Groves. The aim of the game is to hit and not get hit. It’s a 50/50 fight…the fight I that I lost was more like bad luck. I got caught with a good shot, a lucky punch, whatever you want to call it in the first round when I was cold. I threw a lazy jab and – things happen. I called my old trainer Lou Del Valle, former world champion, that’s a very good defense trainer…I added him to my team. Him and Eddie Mustafa are doing a very good job and I’m just believing in myself. I know that was just some bad luck. Things happen in boxing. You can never overlook an opponent and one shot can end the night. But I bounced back well. I’m strong mentally. I don’t need to need to talk all that trash and stuff to build confidence. I don’t do that.

George Groves: I haven’t had to justify ‘I got caught cold’ or ‘it was a lucky punch’ whatever. I’ve faced it. Dealt with it head-on, addressed it, corrected it. This isn’t a 50/50 fight. This is a one-sided fight. I don’t need to trash talk to build false confidence. I am confident. I know what I’m capable of. I’m confident in my abilities because of that. I look forward to being in a fight. Yeah, sure, Badou Jack concentrates on defense, but his defense isn’t impenetrable because he’s been knocked out and he still gets caught a lot…we’re very excited about the fight and can’t wait to get in there and get the job done.

WBC female light flyweight world champion Ibeth “Roca” Zamora (23-5, 9 KOs) and WBC world champion in recess Esmeralda “Joya” Moreno (31-7-1, 10 KOs) will square off for the third time in their careers in an event called “Joyas Mexiquenses” on Saturday at the Centro de Espectáculos del Recinto Ferial in Metepec, Mexico State on a card staged by Promociones del Pueblo and broadcast on Televisa Deportes.

Zamora won the first bout by split decision in Mexico City in August 2007 and Moreno won a majority decision the second bout in February 2008 in San Cristobal Huichochitlan in Zamora’s backyard.

Also in action, unbeaten Mexican sensation Rey Vargas (24-0, 20 KOs) will go against the Dominican Manuel Gonzalez Garcia (21-8-2, 5 KOs). Vargas is the closest challenger to newly crowned WBC interim super bantamweight beltholder Julio Ceja. “I’m ready to look for the world title and that time is coming. I have shown sufficient merit and qualities to be world champion,” said Vargas.

Shannon Briggs Media Day Quotes

Shannon Briggs: “Never before in history has this been done. You are talking about twenty-some former heavyweight champions of the last forty years are coming together for one big family reunion. All the champs: Larry Holmes, Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson, Wladimir Klitschko and The Champ Shannon Briggs – two-time heavyweight champion.

“On Saturday night expect action. There are eight heavyweight fights with all of the former heavyweight champions sitting around the ring. You see Holyfield sitting right there, then you see Tony Tucker over there, Tony Tubbs, Chris Byrd, Hasim Rahman – this is unreal. It’s never been done before. Thanks to Kris Lawrence of the Heavyweight Factory and the Hard Rock Hotel it is happening.

“I was fat. I was going to Publix every day and eating fast food, fried chicken, ice cream and was in a depression. Then it hit me one day, I said ‘man, I am the champ. Get it together.’ I weighed 380 lbs. Close to 400, sitting on the couch fat and depressed. Everybody that saw me just laughed. I knew I had to do something about it. Look good feel good. So I started changing my diet and I started working out and I started walking – every day. Then I said to myself “Let’s go champ,” then boom it came to me. (more…)

By Karl Freitag

During a conference call with media, Floyd Mayweather again insisted that his September 12 pay-per-view clash against Andre Berto will be his last fight. Floyd also stated that he’s training harder for this fight than he did for his record-breaking showdown with Manny Pacquiao.

Floyd Mayweather: When you have a guy put in a situation with nothing to lose, that makes him work that much harder because he’s got a chance to be one of the top guys in the sport when I’m through. Is he trying to dethrone Floyd Mayweather? Absolutely. Like they say in football, ‘any given Sunday,’ I say ‘any given Saturday.’ Anything can happen, so I’m prepared mentally and physically. I’m in top shape, I’m sure he’s in top shape and he’s ready. But I’m not going to overlook this guy…I’m looking at it just like this. I want to win just like he wants to win, so I’m pushing myself everyday. As I get older, I’m working harder. Actually I think this camp I sparred a lot more, I think I worked harder for this fight than the Pacquiao fight.

Of course it’s always about self-preservation. I come first, but I appreciate the fans.

Jesse Hart looking for a knockout against another famous son

Story by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Super middleweight prospect Jesse “Hard Work” Hart, 17-0, 14 KOs, the son of Philly boxing legend Eugene “Cyclone” Hart, faces Aaron Pryor, Jr, 19-8-1, 12 KOs, the son of Hall of Famer Aaron Pryor, next Friday night (September 11th), at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, in a 10-round bout for Hart’s USBA title belt. The fight will be televised live by TruTV.

Hart held an open media workout Wednesday at the Joe Hand Boxing Gym in Philadelphia. He leaves for Las Vegas on Monday.

As if the stakes weren’t high enough – the USBA title, career momentum, and perhaps a future world title bout hanging in the balance – both fighters will be looking to defend their individual family legacies and claim the unusual bragging rights as the “best son of a former great”.

“I think it’s great,” Hart said of fighting another boxing legend’s son. “But I also think that we’re making our own legacy. But you have two fighters’ sons that come from that 15-round era. You got bloodlines that come from that 15-round era of fighting. That’s remarkable in itself. Aaron Pryor comes from that 15-round era. My dad comes from that 15-round era. Anytime you’ve got two sons coming from that 15-round era, you can always expect fireworks. You got to expect that.” (more…)

Tim Bradley splits with trainer Joel Diaz

WBO welterweight champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley has confirmed that he has parted ways with longtime trainer Joel Diaz, who had been in his corner his entire career.

Timothy Bradley Statement: I would like to take the time to clarify the conflicting media publications. First of all I am a man that would never disrespect any other man whom I’ve worked with for 10 years. I know this decision came as a shock to many that I would be making changes to my team, but with that being said I want everyone to know that I took the time to meet with Joel Diaz in person to directly communicate with him that I would be making a change. The message that Joel is referring to was a voice message that I left for him after we spoke in person to reconfirm to him that my decision was made. Joel chose not to answer my call. I thank Joel Diaz for his time and efforts and know that he and I have accomplished great things together. I wish him nothing but success and blessings for him, his family and team.

Arum: Manny Pacquiao will retire next year

By TMZSports.com

Manny Pacquiao’s boxing career is on its last legs … with his promoter saying the fighter will retire next year — to focus on becoming President of the Philippines! Bob Arum was out at Craig’s Tuesday night when he told us Manny is planning to fight again next year once he heals up — but that’s probably the very last bout for the 36-year-old.

“He’s gonna fight again next year but his goal is to become a senator in the Philippines, which he will be next year, and then to be president.”

Arum added, “I think Manny will retire once he’s elected to the Senate of the Philippines which is next year … he’s gonna hang up the gloves.”

Manny has been involved in politics for years in the Philippines — and as been elected to Congress twice before.

McDonnell: I want Quigg after I beat Kameda

Jamie McDonnell says he will KO Tomoki Kameda in their WBA world bantamweight title rematch in Texas on Sunday before moving up to Super Bantamweight to face WBA champ Scott Quigg. McDonnell defends his belt against Kameda in a rematch of their gripping encounter in May, where McDonnell climbed off the canvas in the third round to outpoint the previously unbeaten Japanese star. The 29-year-old says he will make a big statement at the American Bank Center before returning to the UK to seek out an all-British World title bash with Manchester favourite Quigg.

“This is a massive fight and one I really wanted before looking at that move up to Super Bantamweight,” said McDonnell. “The plan is to beat him again and then move up and I’d love the Scott Quigg fight; that would be a massive night. I’ve already proved that I belong at the elite level and it’s only four pounds, it’s not a massive difference and I am a big Bantamweight. I feel I am hitting harder, I’ve been working on my power in the gym and I feel it’s going to pay off. I’m always in great shape and I’ve been flying in the gym, I am really looking forward to this one, I feel I have a lot to prove still even though I am a two-time World champion. We’re here and we’ve settled quickly and I am just going to soak it all up and I really feel that I am going to destroy him on Sunday.

“We know each other inside out because we’ve done 12 rounds. I can’t be sloppy, I’ve got to stay focused. I’ve got to forget the first fight because he’s going to bring his A-game to the table and so I am so it could be a totally different fight to the first one. I think it will be a fast paced fight, I started too slowly last time so I don’t want that to happen again. I believe I will stop him late on, I took him into the trenches last time but I didn’t put it on him enough. I think I will make that big statement and then move up.”

Brook to defend against Chaves

Kell Brook will defend his IBF World Welterweight title against former interim WBA champion Diego Chaves at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, England, on October 24. Brook makes the third defense of his crown at his hometown fortress after ‘The Special One’ forced mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan to retire after four rounds of his first defence there in March and then faced Frankie Gavin in his second defence in London in May, ending the Birmingham man’s challenge in the sixth round at The O2.

“I’ve seen some of Chaves’ quotes and it’s interesting to see he thinks he can walk me down and over-run me,” said Brook. “I don’t think some fighters realize how big I am and how sharp and accurate I punch and I’m looking to make a major statement against him. If he does what he promises it’s going to be one hell of a fight. I’m so excited about boxing in my hometown of Sheffield again. London last time out was a great experience fighting in front of nearly 20,000 but I’m excited to be back there – it is my home. I’m looking to excite like I always do and light up the Motorpoint Arena on October 24.”

“We know Brook is a tough fighter, very technical,” said Chaves. “He is a linear fighter, very frontal. He’s not a fast fighter. He is easily bothered by body punches, and that is one of our strengths. And I believe he has problems going backwards. We saw that in his fight against Shawn Porter. When Porter charged forward, Brook had trouble adjusting to that. But we know that he is a great fighter to face, and we are going to test his punching power too, because the opponents he chose so far have not been such great punchers as the ones I have faced lately. I feel that my confidence grows with this challenge, knowing that I will have to face a champion like Kell Brook in his home country in England. This raises the stakes for me, going up there as an Argentine, and as a huge underdog. We know all the bad blood that exists between Argentina and England, and this will give me much more strength. I will be making history if I defeat an Englishman in his own country.”
