Campbell to sign with Oscar!

By Flattop

Former unified lightweight champion Nate Campbell is close to signing a promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions. Campbell spoke exclusively to FightNews regarding this matter:

“It’s absolutely true Flattop. We’re close. VERY close. I have to do what’s best for my family and my legacy. People think I’m mad with Don, but I’m really not. It’s just in my best interests to move on. Nobody wants to work with Don anymore, and he can’t get me the kind of fights I need at this point in my career, and Golden Boy can. It’s that simple. Remember, I was already the #1 mandatory to Diaz when we signed with Don in the first place, so it isn’t like he moved me into that spot or anything. Terry made those moves, not Don. And since the Diaz fight, all Don has brought was the Guzman nightmare and the Funeka fight (both mandatories), who’s names would only be recognized by about 15 people in the US combined. It’s not my fault that nobody wants to work with Don, and I cant fight that battle for him. He’s got to deal with that on his own. I had to move on. And Golden Boy is really the perfect fit for me right now. They have the names I want to fight, like Marquez and Hatton, and they can get the TV dates, plus other promoters will work with them, and they really can get things done. My signing bonus will be more than I made the entire time I was with King, you feel me? Richard and Eric can get me the Marquez fight, meanwhile Don is talking about Devon Alexander, who ain’t never fought nobody. Come on brother. Be serious. It ain’t even a debate anymore. Look, this deal with Golden Boy will put me in the fights that can secure the future for my family, and establish my legacy. And honestly, that’s all I’ve ever wanted from this game. So hopefully Terry and Golden Boy can get this thing wrapped up quick, because I’m dying to get back in the gym.”

Mundine-Geale on 5/27!

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine (35-3, 23 KOs) will clash with IBO middleweight champion Daniel Geale (20-0, 12 KOs) on May 27. Mundine has been unimpressive in recent middleweight bouts and there are many predicting Geale can upset the former world champion. Australia’s No.1 promoter Bill Treacy, who manages Geale, said “Daniel has looked great in recent sparring sessions against IBO super middleweight champion Sakio Bika and is now ready for Mundine. His trainer Graham Shaw has done a top job in having Daniel performing at his best.” Next week Geale will defend his IBO crown against Canadian Ian MacKillop, who stopped Mundine’s last opponent Shannan Taylor. Mundine’s only losses have been to Sven Ottke, Mikkel Kessler and Many Siaca in world title bouts. Geale is underfeated.

Kirkland-Julio Presser Quotes!

By David Robinett

Oscar de la Hoya: This is the type of event that fight fans will be talking about for months and years to come…These are compelling fights, top-notch fights and it doesn’t get any better than this.
“Vicious” Victor Ortiz: We’re ready and I know my opponent is ready and we’ll see what happens Saturday night. I can’t really call him [Mike Arnaoutis] an opponent, he’s a champion and I know he’ll be ready.
Joel Julio: I feel good, I’m ready for James Kirkland. Kirkland is a very good fighter, but he hasn’t been tested yet…I am looking forward to March 7 when I plan to knock Kirkland out.
James Kirkland: We trained very well for the fight. I know Joel’s coming prepared but I came to do what I came to do…Me and Julio are going to meet up in the center of that ring and we’re going to see whose chin is better.
Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero: It’s about time I got out to San Jose to fight and I’d like to thank Golden Boy for putting on the show here. [Commenting on Daud Yordan's "Ghostbusters" shirt] I like that little “Ghostbusters” sign on the back of his shirt, but the last person who came out with a “Ghostbusters” sign was Jason Litzau and I knocked him out in eight rounds.

Rising Junior Welterweight Derrick “Super” Samuels (16-4-1, 4 KOs) of Orlando, FL will risk his NABA-US title Friday March 27 at the A La Carte Event Pavilion against fight veteran Roberto Valenzuela. Valenzuela of Sonora, Mexico, has gone to war with many champions and contenders including Jose Luis Castillo, Andre Berto, Cesar Bazan, and Demetrius Hopkins. The Samuels-Valenzuela bout is scheduled for ten rounds. The undercard will be topped by two exciting co-main events. The first will feature an eight round Cruiserweight showdown between Floridians Nicholas Iannuzzi (9-0, 6 KOs) of Tampa and Theo Kruger (9-7-1, 3 KOs) of Port Charlotte. Iannuzzi is making a much anticipated return following his impressive fifth round KO against previously unbeaten Terry Roy last November.

Kameda Brothers victorious!

By Joe Koizumi

WBA#1/WBC#3 flyweight Koki Kameda (20-0, 13 KOs), 113, easily finished overmatched and fragile Mexican Dolores Vidal (publicized 21-9, 19 KOs), 111.75, by dropping him three times at 2:09 of the second round in Saitama, Japan, on Wednesday. Vidal was ballyhooed as a WBC#20 ranked contender, but he looked so terrible that he couldn’t show nothing prior to his disappointing defeat. Lately we have never seen such a poor performance of Mexican boxers (well-known by their gallant machismo) fighting here in Japan.

Daiki Kameda (13-1, 10 KOs), 114.75, also easily dispatched Wandee Singwangcha (57-10-1, 12 KOs), 113.75, at 0:27 of the sixth session. Ex-WBC champ Wandee also seemed to have left his fighting spirit in Thailand only to miserably succumb to Daiki’s body shots. Wandee didn’t look what he used to be. Promoter: Katsumata Promotions.

Gerula defeats Raika!

WBA#6/WBC#15 female Canadian Olivia Gerula (10-10-2, 3 KOs), 130/75, made a good display of her shifty footwork and accurate shots to win an upset split but well-received decision (78-76, 78-77 and 76-77) over WBC#4/WBA#7 light Fujin Raika (18-5-1, 6 KOs), 132.5, over eight two-minute rounds on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. Gerula, formerly a kick-boxer, landed light but accurate punches from Hamed-like angles, busily moving side-to-side, to and fro, all the way. Olivia, four years her junior at 29, outspeeded and outclassed the hard-hitting but slower Raika, one of the most famous women boxers, despite her continual nose-bleeding caused by an accidental butt in the fourth.
