Inside the Alexander Povetkin training camp

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Undefeated as a professional, 2004 Athens Olympic champion from Russia, Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18 KO) likes to keep his preparations for his upcoming battle with WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion from Ukraine Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 52 KO) very much behind closed doors. On October 5, in Moscow’s Oliympyjskij Sportcomplex there’s almost everything to win for Povetkin – four “Dr Steelhammer” belts with only other one in the possession of Wlad’s older brother Vitali Klitschko. Russia’s “Channel 1″, who will broadcast the Klitschko-Povetkin fight domestically, caught a rare glimpse of Povetkin’s training camp. Klitschko-Povetkin, organized by Andrey Ryabinsky, CEO of MIC Group of Companies, will be televised in US live and on a same day tape-delay basis by HBO.

DeMarcus Corley confident to beat Selcuk Aydin

wiegentekirdag300
Former WBO light welterweight champion DeMarcus Corley is confident that he can beat Selcuk Aydin tomorrow (Friday, September 27th) in Tekirdag (Turkey) for the vacant WBC Mediterranean championship. “He is a strong guy but when analyzing his style I saw some flaws and I want to take advantage of that”, says Corley. “I think I can knock him out to take that belt with me to the United States.”

Promoter Ahmet Oner believes that it will be a close and exciting fight: “Corley is a very experienced guy and I am sure that he didn’t come all the way from the USA to collect a check. This is not a big payday for him – it’s a big chance. Aydin is rated on no. 4 by the WBC and no. 10 by the IBF. Corley wants to win this fight to get back into the picture and maybe fight for a world title again. But Selcuk is very strong and very confident. From the promotional side this fight is as good as it gets: Both guys are determined and willing to win. They have to win because this is there only chance to get close to a shot at the world championship.” (more…)

All Star Boxing given court go-ahead to seek punitive damages against Golden Boy for their signing of Canelo Alvarez

The Circuit Court for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida will allow Tuto Zabala Jr.’s All Star Boxing to seek punitive damages against Golden Boy Promotions for tortious interference involving Golden Boy’s signing of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez while Canelo was still under a promotional contract with All Star Boxing.

According to court documents signed by Circuit Court Judge Abby Cynamon:

5. Plaintiff has sufficiently provided this Court with a reasonable showing by evidence in the record or has proffered such evidence to support a reasonable basis that Defendant Golden Boy Promotions, Inc. has engaged in “intentional misconduct” or “gross negligence” (as defined by Florida Statute §768.72) such that a reasonable basis exists as to the recovery of punitive damages against Defendant Golden Boy Promotions, Inc.

6. The evidence presented to the Court as to the tortious interference with contractual relationship is sufficient to provide a reasonable basis to conclude that Defendant Golden Boy Promotions, Inc. had actual knowledge of the wrongfulness of its conduct and the high probability that injury or damage to Plaintiff would result and, despite that knowledge, intentionally pursued that course of conduct, resulting in injury or damage.

The Klitschko Brothers’ K2 Promotions have inked highly regarded Olympic heavyweight gold medalist and amateur world champion Alexander Usyk of Ukraine. It was announced at a press conference that Usyk will make his pro debut on November 9 in Kiev.

Alexander Usyk: “It is vitally important for me to debut in Ukraine. I visited the USA and UK, but K2 offered me the best option. I am happy about that and will proudly represent it sharing my success with my compatriots. I will come to America soon, but to pick up the champion belts”.

Vitali Klitschko: I am convinced that Ukrainian boxing fans will enjoy his charisma and boxing skills for a long time. We keep our fists for hearing the Ukrainian anthem worldwide in the nearest future while Alexander would be disputing the world title. I am sure that his talent, ardor and purposefulness will easily make it happen.

Alexander Krassyuk: This is the biggest signing for K2 within its history with the most talented and bright prospect in heavyweight. Alexander was born the same day with Muhammad Ali and this is not the coincidence. With his skills and experience we expect a very impetuous launch of his career and within a couple of years Usyk will gain the right to fight for the world title. photos

Cloud: I’m gonna get up in his a** and be unorthodox myself

By Phil Doherty

Tavoris “Thunder” Cloud (24-1, 19 KOs) is in Montreal this week preparing to challenge Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 18 KOs) for Stevenson’s newly-won WBC light heavyweight crown. Stevenson will have the home-ring advantage with twenty thousand Quebecois fight fans. Cloud will have longtime trainers Alonzo Johnson and Al Bonanni.

It seems a tough challenge for the challenger, who relinquished the IBF light heavyweight belt to eternally young Bernard Hopkins last March. However, Cloud started fighting tough odds pretty much from the day he was born into abject poverty in Tallahassee, Florida. Raised in tenement conditions with more than ten people in a single small home, Cloud grew up quick. He decided at fourteen he would take care of his family and change their situation. His journey now finds him poised to do just that once again.

Fightnews caught up with him as he finalized preparations for the HBO-televised event this Saturday. (more…)

Ex-OPBF 154lb champ Nonaka finishes Ekapop

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

Formerly world-rated ex-OPBF super-welter champ Yuki Nonaka (24-8-2, 8 KOs), 160, displayed a fine form in demolishing Thailand’s Ekapop Mor Krungthep Thonburi (11-7-1, 4 KOs), 158.5, with a vicious southpaw left at 2:24 of the fourth session on Monday in Osaka, Japan. Nonaka captured the OPBF 154-pound belt on an eighth round technical decision over Kazuhiko Hidaka in a grudge fight in 2009, but yielded the belt to Akio Shibata on points in his first defense. Nonaka, however, defeated previously unbeaten world contender Dmytro Nikulin of Ukraine by an upset verdict here in September 2010, and stays unbeaten since. The Japanese six-footer Nonaka looked too much for the younger Thailander, who attempted to land direct rights to the taller southpaw, but Nonaka kept outpunching him and finally exploded a wicked left to have him down for the count. Nonaka is gunning for a shot at a regional championship of any organization in the super-welter category.

In the main event, ex-OPBF middleweight champ Tetsuya Suzuki (29-11, 17 KOs), 159.75, needed only 3:09 to polish off another Thailander Udomsin Nonpitayakom, 159.75, in a scheduled eight.
