Johnson impresses Super Six foes

Glen Johnson’s stunning eighth-round knockout victory over Allan Green Saturday night on SHOWTIME® not only earned him three points and the final spot in the Super Six World Boxing Classic Semifinals but the respect from the other entrants in the Super Six. Although the scoring was close, the 41-year-old Jamaican-born Johnson (51-14-2, 35 KOs), of Miami, Fla., pushed the pace and consistently delivered the heavier shots throughout. Making his first start at 168 pounds in 10 years, Johnson finished Green (29-3, 20 KOs) of Tulsa, Okla., with a combination culminated by a vicious right hand 36 seconds into the round.

The final Group Stage 3 fight will transpire Saturday, Nov. 27, when former world champions Arthur Abraham (31-1, 25 KOs) of Germany and England’s Carl Froch (26-1, 20 KOs) clash for the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) super middleweight title from Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland, on SHOWTIME (same-day delay) in the opener of a televised doubleheader.

Undefeated World Boxing Association (WBA) 168-pound belt-holder Andre Ward (22-0, 13 KOs) of Oakland, Calif., will defend against dangerous Sakio Bika (28-4-2, 19 KOs) of Sydney, Australia, by way of Cameroon, Africa, live on SHOWTIME in the second half of the eagerly awaited Nov. 27 twinbill. Ward enters the non-tournament bout as the Super Six tournament leader with six points. (more…)

Haye a heavy favorite

By Karl Freitag

WBA heavyweight champion David Haye is a heavy -700 favorite over former Olympic gold medalist Audley Harrison +550 this weekend at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England. Both fighters have been waging a war of words leading up to the biggest all-British heavyweight title fight since 1993’s Lewis vs Bruno clash.

“I think it’s now time for me to go out there and close the Audley Harrison show once and for all and end his soap opera of a professional career,” said Haye during the pre-fight build-up. “Audley’s a big name, but he’s known as a boxer that people want to watch get destroyed. There is nobody better at destroying hype-jobs than I am. I don’t think he deserves to fight me – as I don’t think he’s done enough in his career – but I’m happy to do my duty for the British people. The public want to see one final high-profile destruction of Audley Harrison, and I can assure them this will be the last time they ever see him in a boxing ring!”

Harrison insists that he cannot be broken by Haye and that the champion is already starting to wilt. “Don’t be surprised if I knock David Haye out in a couple of rounds, the way it’s going,” Harrison told Sky Sports News.

The final press conference is set for Wednesday. On Thursday both fighters will work out at the Ricky Hatton Gym and Friday’s weigh-in will take place at the The Lowry Art and Entertainment Centre at 2PM.

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.”

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.

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.

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.
