Dundee likes Margarito’s chances

While most people in boxing are predicting a Manny Pacquiao win on Saturday night, Hall of Fame trainer Angelo Dundee says Antonio Margarito has the style to derail the Pacman Express. “The style of Margarito is the style that gives a southpaw trouble,” said Dundee. “He comes forward and the only way to fight a southpaw is to come forward. That is my interpretation…Dundeeism. I trained a half dozen southpaws. I had a boxer named Andy Durell fight the greatest boxer of all time, Willie Pep, and he took it as a warm-up in Miami Beach. The southpaw gave him all the trouble he wanted, busted him up and everything and it was supposed to be an easy fight.” (more…)

Juanma vs Rojas in 2011?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

WBC featherweight champion Elio Rojas is one of the candidates to possibly land a title unification fight with WBO featherweight Juan Manuel Lopez on March 19 at the Coliseo Roberto Clemente in Puerto Rico. Some sources indicate that the fight could be made if there’s a good offer for Rojas, however other sources indicate that very difficult to make the fight due to the lukewarm relationship between Bob Arum (Lopez) and Don King (Rojas). Rojas had shoulder surgery in August and has not fought since February when he won by decision against former champion Guty Espadas in Mexico. Rojas was slated to unify with WBA champion Yuriorkis Gamboa in September but his shoulder wasn’t ready yet. Sources close to Rojas say he may take a tune-up fight first, but if an agreement is reached he could go straight to Lopez.

Margarito’s explanation

Photo: Robert Hughes

Antonio Margarito made an unscheduled appearance at a Thursday press conference for Saturday’s undercard and stated that he never made fun of Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach’s symptoms from Parkinsons disease. The Tijuana Tornado said a video that briefly went viral before being pulled from YouTube was edited and out of context and that he was merely pretending to shake with fear over statements from the Pacquiao camp.

Brandon Rios, who fights in a pay-per-view undercard bout, also issued an apology for his part in the video and didn’t deny he was mocking Roach.

Boxing Result

Snow, Jeter victorious in DC

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Capitol Heights, MD super featherweight Thomas “KO” Snow won a six-round unanimous decision over Jason Rorie of Wilson, NC in front of a packed house at DC Star Nightclub in DC.

Unlike their first matchup that Snow won in November by using more movement, Snow fought a phone booth bout throughout with the determined Rorie. The close quarters allowed for headbutts to take place and one Rorie headbutt caused a gash over Snow’s left eye. Referee Dr. Joseph Cooper took two points away from Rorie for headbutts and holding. Both men landed solid punches throughout but more came from Snow. Judges Steve Rados and Lloyd Scaife scored the bout 60-52 while judge Tammye Jenkins saw the bout 58-54. (more…)
