Lakatos vows expose Cleverly

Former world title challenger Alejandro Lakatos has vowed to expose unbeaten Nathan Cleverly on December 11 at the Echo Arena where the Interim WBO World light-heavyweight title will be at stake. “He’s an overhyped jumped-up kid who will be exposed for what he is on December 11, and I’ll give him a one, two that will knock him out. I’ve seen Cleverly’s fight against Karo Murat, and if he stands in front of me like that he’ll be in big trouble. I’ll punish him.” Born in Romania but now fighting out of Madrid, Lakatos has 31 and has twice fought for the WBO world light-heavyweight title. “It will definitely be a case of third time lucky against Cleverly,” said Lakatos. “I’ve been close to glory before, but this time my dream of winning a world title is about to come true. I’m sure that I will get booed into the Echo Arena, but by the time I’ve finished with Cleverly the crowd will be on their feet and cheering me.”

Detroit Boxing Action

By Bob Ryder

Boxing returns to suburban Detroit’s Royal Oak Music Theatre on Friday, November 12 with Darryl Cunningham and Rubin Williams squaring off in the 10 round main event for the WBF United States 175 pound title. The careers of the two Motor City combatants have been heading in opposite directions as Cunningham is sporting a nice win streak while Williams has been on the slide as of late, a trend he vows to halt in this bout. Williams has stated, “I will not lose in my hometown!” Cunningham has showed solid improvement in recent outings and is planning on continuing his march towards what he hopes is a world ranking and title shot with a victory over Williams.

Zbik now mandatory challenger

Universum Box-Promotion

Unbeaten WBC interim world champion Sebastian Zbik (30-0, 10 KOs) will soon have the opportunity to remove the word “interim” from his title. The Universum fighter was made the official mandatory challenger for the winner of the November 20 clash between champion Sergio Martinez and Paul Williams in Atlantic City. This was confirmed by WBC general secretary Mauricio Sulaiman at the WBC Convention in Cancun, where Zbik and Universum co-promoter Dietmar Poszwa were both present. “This decision was overdue for a long time since I have been interim world champion for more than one year,” said Zbik. “I’m very glad to now the definitive assurance that I’ll get to fight the winner by March.” (more…)

Feature Story

Pacman’s bold bid

By Nick Giongco

No Filipino fighter has won a world title at 154 lbs and Manny Pacquiao stands to become the first after he faces Mexican Antonio Margarito on Nov. 13 at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas with the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) belt at stake. The only time a Filipino figured in a world title fight at super-welterweight/junior-middle/light-middle class took place in March 1994 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Arman Picar challenged Julio Cesar Vasquez of Argentina for the World Boxing Association junior-middle diadem and got knocked out in less than two rounds in the Don King-promoted show. Picar actually earned the title shot after nailing the Orient-Pacific Boxing Federation title in Korea in December the previous year. If ever Pacquiao wins the WBC title, he will become the second heaviest Filipino to bag a world title after Ceferino Garcia, who reigned as world middleweight (160 lbs) king from 1939 to 1940.

Green to protest loss

The team of Allan Green has formally notified the Nevada State Athletic Commission of their intent to file an appeal of referee Robert Byrd’s decision to call a halt to his Super Six bout this past Saturday evening against Glen Johnson at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Johnson was awarded a knockout victory at the close of the eighth round. Green went to the canvas after being on the receiving end of what he and his team feel were rabbit punches. Boxing attorney Josh Dubin has been hired to handle the appeal. Dubin is known for successfully overturning Timothy Bradley’s knockout victory over Nate Campbell to a no contest. The appeal will be filed by the end of the week, and the rules of the NSAC entitle Green to a decision within sixty days of the filing of his petition.

Ringside report by Andreas Hale

They say that the Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry is one of the best in boxing. That’s certainly not a lie. They said, for weeks, that the fight between Juan Manuel Lopez and Rafael Marquez could equate to the dramatic back and forth drubbing that Diego Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo delivered in their fight of the decade showdown back in 2005. Again, that wasn’t a lie either. It started to turn into a similar slugfest but a shoulder injury to Rafael Marquez caused a remarkable fight to be stopped abruptly at the end of the eighth round to award Juan Manuel Lopez the TKO victory as he retained his WBO featherweight title in front of 4813 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas . . . click here for more
