LOS ANGELES (Aug. 26, 2018): Lineal Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) and WBC, WBA and IBO Middleweight Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) hosted a Los Angeles media workout in front of thousands of fans at the new Banc of California Stadium ahead of their historic rematch. The fight will take place Saturday, Sept. 15 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at a special time of 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT.

Jaime Munguia (30-0, 25 KOs), who will defend his WBO Junior Middleweight World Title in the 12-round co-main event against rugged Canadian contender Brandon “Bad Boy” Cook (20-1, 13 KOs), also participated in the workout.
Here’s what the participants had to say at today’s event:
 
CANELO ALVAREZ, Lineal Middleweight World Champion:
“We’re getting close to the fight, and I feel good. This fight is personal because of all that’s been said, and it will be difficult to regain the respect that we once had. The statements that have been made about me have given me more motivation to train harder. I have watched the first fight several times. The error that I made was that I had opportunities to counter that I needed to have taken advantage of. I need to do that in the rematch.
Like I’ve said many times, the first fight gave me the guideline for the second fight. I know that I can do many things in the ring against him. I know that I can hurt him. I hurt him in the first fight, and I’m going to hurt him even more in the second fight. My objective is the knockout and I’ll be looking for that from the opening round.”
Golovkin knows who I am. He knows who I’m about. Let me put it even better–he still doesn’t know how much more I have left to show. I’m looking forward to showing him that on September 15. I have to win convincingly. It has to be a knockout to erase any doubts. I’m very motivated for this win. I’m confident, but not overconfident about my opponent because I know who he is, but I’m confident in my preparation.

There is no such thing as a Mexican style. There have been many fighters from Mexico with different styles. My style is mine. I’m Mexican and that’s what is important. Maybe Golovkin uses ‘Mexican Style’ to get fans, but he’s a hypocrite. If something were to happen in Mexico, he wouldn’t be there to support them.

GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN, WBC/WBA/IBO Middleweight World Champion:

“Canelo, he is not a champion. He is a liar who has no respect for the sport of boxing or its fans. I want to stay world champion and bring all my belts home. I am ready to star in another Big Drama Show. I do not think about Canelo in training. I am not worried about him. I only worry about doing my job in training camp and doing my job in the ring against Canelo on September 15. In the last fight I did not feel any real power from Canelo. Just slaps. He is not the hardest puncher I have fought, but he is fast and quick. He is the most skilled fighter I have fought. He is a very good fighter.
I am happy to get at Canelo again. It is another big chance to beat him again. Of course I want to knock out Canelo. It would be nice if Canelo came to fight this time. I don’t believe what he says about how he will fight me this time. He said the same thing before our first fight. I will definitely be more aggressive in this fight.
Was I upset that Canelo failed two drug tests? Yes. But I was more upset at Canelo’s team. The excuses they gave, their attitude, and Canelo’s reaction, it showed that they have no respect for the sport or the fans. They showed their real faces. They are fakes. I do not feel anger toward him because the rematch was canceled the first time.
But I did lose all respect for him. Canelo is not the biggest name in boxing, just the biggest scandal. I feel very comfortable. It has been a great training camp. Abel has had me working on new things which I find very exciting. The cancelation of the rematch in May was a good life experience but it was not a good experience for boxing. I believe new judges and a new referee could be better for boxing and the fans.”
JAIME MUNGUÍA, WBO Junior Middleweight World Champion:
“Fighting on this card is a great opportunity, especially on a date that is so important for Mexicans. I have the obligation to give a great fight to all the fans. I know Brandon Cook is a tough opponent. He is older than me and has a lot of experience. But I think I’m stronger than him and have a reach advantage. I’m confident I’ll walk away with my hand raised.
This fight is an obligation to come in even better than last time. I need to show that I’ve gotten a lot better. I never knew that I would get so far in my career so quickly, but things happen for a reason. The Liam Smith fight gave me a lot of experience. It showed me all the errors I made that I am now working on in the gym.
A lot of fighters would love to be fighting frequently. It’s an opportunity that any fighter would desire. So I have to take advantage of that. If my body allows, I will continue be an active fighter as a world champion.”
OSCAR DE LA HOYA, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions:
“This fight is something different. This fight is personal. I’ve never seen Canelo so angry. He really wants to knock Golovkin out. As a promoter, I want to see him knock Golovkin out. This fight is every important for Mexican people. This is a Mexican date, and I’m excited we can bring fans an exciting and memorable event during Mexican Independence Day Weekend.”
TOM LOEFFLER, Promoter of Gennady “GGG” Golovkin:
“This is the biggest fight, the biggest boxing event of the year. The two best middleweights going mano a mano for all the marbles. Gennady is going for the all-time consecutive title defense record to further burnish his place as the top pound for pound fighter of his era.

Pedraza-Beltran, Dogboe-Otake, and Mayer-Kiss

Aug 26, 2018

Beltran vs. Pedraza / Dogboe vs. Otake / Mayer vs. Kiss 

* Pedraza dethrones Beltran, wins WBO lightweight title
* Dogboe blasts out Otake in 1, retains 122-pound title
* Mayer stops Kiss in 3

GLENDALE, Ariz (Aug. 25, 2018) — Jose “Sniper” Pedraza is now a two-weight world champion. Pedraza scored an 11th round knockdown and won a unanimous decision to dethrone WBO lightweight world champion Ray Beltran on Saturday evening at the GIla River Arena.

Scores were 117-110, 117-110, and 115-112 for Pedraza, who was previously the IBF 130-pound champion of the world.

With the victory, Pedraza (25-1, 12 KOs) is expected to fight WBA lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko on Dec. 1 to unify two of the division’s titles. Pedraza returned from a 14-month layoff in March and won two bouts to earn the shot at Beltran.

“We did everything that we needed to do to win this fight. We followed the game plan perfectly,” Pedraza said. “I knew how tough this fight was going to be and at moments it got very difficult, but thanks to the focus and the guidance from my corner, we were able to win round by round and get the win.”

Said Beltran, who fell to 35-8-1: “I thought it was a good, close fight. The knockdown made the difference. I got caught with a really good shot.”  

The storm came in a hurry, as Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe blasted out Hidenori Otake via TKO at 2:18 of the opening round to retain his WBO junior bantamweight world title. Dogboe (20-0, 14 KOs) knocked down Otake (31-3-3, 14 KOs) down twice in the round, and a follow-up flurry forced referee Chris Flores to call a halt to the bout.

Dogboe won the title with a thrilling 11th-round TKO against Jessie Magdaleno in April. This time, he had a shorter night at the office.

“This was a great performance. I’m glad I got to showcase my skills on ESPN,” Dogboe said. I’m very thankful for the opportunity. I have a lot of respect for Otake for standing up after getting dropped. When I hit him with that powerful hook and dropped him the first time I felt the holy spirit.

“Now, I want to face all the champs. Lets do this. I’m ready to unify all the titles.”

In the ESPN-televised six-round special attraction, Mikaela Mayer (7-0, 4 KOs) knocked down Edina Kiss in the first round en route to a third-round TKO after Kiss did not come out for the fourth round. Mayer, a 2016 U.S. Olympian, is 4-0 in 2017.

“I’m happy with my performance. I was technically sound,” Mayer said. “I thought I had it in the bag. I wanted to stop her. If I had one more two more rounds, I would’ve finished it.”

In other action:

Super Featherweights: Robson Conceicao (9-0, 5 KOs), unanimous decision, 8 rounds, Edgar Cantu (7-5-2, 1 KO). Scores: 80-71, 80-71, 80-71.

Conceicao said: “It was a very good fight. I trained very hard, and little by little, I’m showing what I’m capable of doing inside the ring. I wanted to go the full eight rounds. This was my first time fighting to eight rounds, and I wanted to test myself. I felt great. I’m ready to fight more rounds in my next fight.”

Super Bantamweights: Carlos Castro (21-0, 9 KOs) unanimous decision, 8 rounds, Diuhl Olguin (12-12-2, 9 KOs). Scores: 80-72, 79-73, 77-75.

Castro said: “It was a four-week camp with a new trainer, new everything. I’ll take the win and the rounds. That’s what I needed. I’m going back to the drawing board. I know I could’ve stopped this guy, but I’m happy with the win.”

Featherweights: Francisco De Vaca (19-0, 6 KOs) unanimous decision, 8 rounds, Jesus Serrano (17-7-2, 12 KOs). Scores: 78-73, 78-73, 79-72.

* De Vaca knocked down Serrano with a right hand in the fourth round.

De Vaca said: “I’m happy with the win, but I felt I could’ve done better. I look forward to my next fight soon. Fighting in front of my hometown fans was really special. Serrano was a tough guy, and we put on a great fight for the fans.”

Lightweights: Antonio Lozada Jr. (40-2-1, 34 KOs), Draw, 8 rounds, Hector Ambriz (12-7-2, 6 KOs). Scores: 78-74 Lozada, 79-73 Ambriz, 76-76.

Light Heavyweights: Trevor McCumby (24-0, 19 KOs), TKO 3, :40 Jessie Nicklow (27-9-3, 9 KOs).
* Nicklow stopped on his feet.

McCumby said: I’m happy with my performance. I got in there and got the win. I could’ve boxed a little more, but it felt good to make my return and end it in style.”

Bantamweights: Breenan Macias (3-0, 2 KOs), KO 2 Philip Adyaka (7-12, 4 KOs), 3:00.
-*Right hand puts Adyako down, referee Tony Weeks immediately calls a halt to the bout.

Super Welterweights: Sagadat Rakhmankul (3-0, 1 KO), unanimous decision, 6 rounds, Christian Aguirre (7-3, 3 KOs). Scores: 60-54, 59-55, 59-55.

Super Lightweights: Arnold Barboza Jr. (19-0, 7 KOs) TKO 5 Luis Solis (23-10-4, 20 KOs), 3:00.

#SUPERFLY3

DONNIE NIETES Y  ASTON PALICTE EN BUSCA DE LA GLORIA

 

El próximo 8 de Septiembre en el Forum de Inglewood, el tres veces campeón del mundo  en tres diferentes categorías Donnie “La Serpiente” Nietes se enfrentara a su compatriota “Mighty” Aston Palicte en un combate por el campeonato Mundial de peso supermosca de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) y hoy sábado convivieron con la comunidad filipina de Los Angeles en miras a sus histórico duelo.

Nietes el clasificado número uno y Palicte el clasificado número 2, disputarán el campeonato supermosca de  la OMB que está vacante en el duelo semi estelar de la función Superfly3 que presentara 360 promotions y que será televisada por HBO en su gustado programa “Boxing After Dark” comenzando a las 9:45 Este/Pacífico.

“Es una pelea importante para el boxeo filipino, pues esta pelea es muestra del nivel que existe en el pugilismo filipino y la importancia que tenemos en el mundo boxístico, pues ser parte de una gran cartelera, en un histórico inmueble como lo es el Forum y que sea televisado por HBO es  obvio que estamos pasado por un gran momento”, dijo Nietes.

Nietes quien ha sido monarca universal en las 105, 108 y 112 libras estara haciendo su segunda presentación en la serie Superfly, ya que el pasado mes de febrero en Superfly2 conquisto el campeonato mundial de peso mosca de la Federacion Internacional de Boxeo (IBF) al noquear al argentino Juan Carlos Reveco en el Foum.

“Ser campeón en cuatro divisiones diferentes me pone al nivel de Manny Pacquiao y Nonito Donaire y dara el reconocimiento a nivel mundial a mi carrera. Estoy entrenando muy fuerte para ganar la pelea y darles a los aficionados a un gran pelea”, dijo Nietes.

“Creo que mi pelea contra Aston tiene grandes posibilidades de ser la mejor de la moche, pues ambos tenemos mucho ganar el 8 de septiembre y se que el esta también trabajando muy duro para darle a los aficionados una pelea para el recuerdo”, agrego Nietes.

  

Sobre la mayor estatura de su rival Nietes comento:

“Si fuéramos a jugar basquetbol me preocuparía su estatura, pero vamos a boxear y en el ring hay maneras de contra restar todos la ventajas del rival, hay que tener inteligencia y buscar hacer las cosas con paciencia” , dijo Nietes

Palicte es un boxeador joven con mucha hambre de demostrar su talento.

“Esta es una gran oportunidad para mí. Voy a disputar por primer vez una campeonato mundial y lo voy hacer en HBO, el hecho de que ambos somos filipinos nada tiene que ver, pues los dos vamos hacer nuestro trabajo y buscaremos el triunfo a toda costa”, dijo Palicte.

“Coincido con Donnie, que nuestra pelea podría ser la mejor de la noche, pues ambos queremos alcanzar la gloria y lo daremos todo en el ring, por nuestro país, nuestros seguidores y para aprovechar esta gran oportunidad que estamos recibiendo”, dijo Palicte

Superfly3 será encabezada por un duelo de 12 asaltos en peso supermosca entre el ex campeón mundial  JUAN FRANCISCO ‘El Gallo’ ESTRADA, (36-3-0, 25 KO’s) de Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, México y el dos veces retador a un campeonato mundial FELIPE ‘Galito’ ORUCUTA, (36-4-0, 30 KO’s) de Nicolás Romero, México.

En el duelo co-estelar de la velada estará en juego a 12 rounds el campeonato mundial supermosca de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) entre el cuatro veces campeón mundial en tres diferentes divisiones DONNIE ‘The Snake’ NIETES, (41-1-4, 23 KO’s), de Bacolod City, Filipinas contra  ‘Mighty’ ASTON PALICTE, (24-2-0, 20 KO’s) de Bago City, Filipinas.

En la pelea que abrirá la transmisión de televisión, el tres veces campeón del mundo KAZUTO IOKA, (22-1-0, 13 KO’s) de Osaka, Japón se enfrentará al dos veces retador a un título mundial

MCWILLIAMS ARROYO, (17-3-0, 14 KO’s) de Fajardo, Puerto Rico en un duelo pactado a 10 rounds en peso supermosca.

For me it is an honor to be on this card supporting Canelo Alvarez, who is also Mexican, on a date that is so special for Mexico, for me and for all of the people. We will do our best to please the public. I promise to not disappoint, so don’t miss my fight and don’t miss Canelo vs. GGG 2.”

“I’m very pleased with this victory,” said Andrew Cancio. “We worked hard for the win, and we knew it would turn out like this. It was a tough 10 rounds. No matter how hard you train or spar, you have to dig deep in a fight like that. I have to sit with my manager and with Golden Boy Promotions to see what is next, but I want a world title.”
“The decision was horrible,” said Dardan Zenunaj. “The fight was a draw. 99-91 is an atrocious score. It means we only won one round. I take nothing away from Cancio. He’s a warrior and did great, but the decision was horrible.”

“I have no excuses,” said Yoshihiro Kamegai. “I did not do well. The long layoff does not matter. Once you start punching, it’s all the same. Vendetti was the better fighter tonight.”

Known for his crushing pressure and ground game, the undefeated Nurmagomedov (26-0, fighting out of Dagestan, Russia) has proven to be unstoppable inside the Octagon®. Over the course of his spectacular run, he’s earned dominant wins over Edson Barboza, Michael Johnson, Rafael Dos Anjos, Abel Trujillo and Thiago Tavares.

Oscar Valdez será entrenado por Eddy Reynoso

Aug 15, 2018

Oscar Valdez será entrenado por Eddy Reynoso

El dos veces Olímpico Mexicano y actual campeón mundial invicto de peso pluma de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) Oscar Valdez de Nogales, Sonora, México quien ya casi está totalmente recuperado de su lesión a la mandíbula, regresará pronto a los entrenamientos bajo las órdenes del entrenador mexicano Eddy Reynoso, entrenador de Saúl “Canelo” Alvarez.

Valdez (24-0, 19 KOs) de 27 años de edad derrotó al inglés Scott Quigg el pasado 10 de marzo en el StubHub Center de Carson, California para retener su corona de las 126 libras, pero Quigg quien no dio el peso el día antes de la pelea y luego se negó hacer una pacto para un límite de peso el siguiente día, estaba muy pesado cuando subió al ring, pero aun así en una pelea que mucho consideran una de las mejores del 2018, Valdez lució impresionante en la victoria en la cual sufrió una lesión en la mandíbula que lo ha mantenido ausente de los cuadriláteros desde entonces.

Tan pronto reciba la luz verde de los doctores, Valdez comenzará a entrenar para su esperado regreso al ring a inicios del 2019 y cuando lo haga será bajo las órdenes de Reynoso.

“Quiero darle las gracias a Manny Robles y a todo su equipo por todo lo hecho por mí estos últimos años, pero como todo en la vida a veces hay que hacer cambios para seguir avanzando. Estoy muy agradecidos con ellos por su amistad y todas sus enseñanzas”, dijo Valdez.

“Todos estamos muy agradecidos con Manny Robles y su equipo por su trabajo con Oscar, pero vienen retos muy fuertes en la carrera de Oscar y como equipo decidimos que Eddy Reynoso sería una mejor opción para lo que tenemos por delante”, dijo Frank Espinoza, presidente y fundador de Espinoza Boxing Club quien es el encargado de llevar la carrera de Valdez.

Valdez representó a México en los Juegos Olímpicos del 2008 en Pekín y en el 2012 en Londres y es el único boxeador mexicano en ganar una medalla de oro en un torneo Mundial misma que logró en el 2009 en Italia en peso pluma, también ganó oro en los Juegos Panamericanos del 2011 en Guadalajara, Jalisco.

Valdez hizo su debut profesional el 3 de noviembre del 2012 en Hermosillo, Sonora y despachó en dos rounds a Angel Prado, convirtiéndose rápidamente en uno de los prospectos más cotizados en el boxeo mexicano, Valdez se convirtió en todo un legítimo retador mundial el 9 de abril del 2016, cuando noqueó al ex campeón mundial Evgeny “El RusoMexicano” Gradovich en cuatro rounds en Las Vegas.

El mexicano conquistó el campeonato mundial de peso pluma de la OMB el 23 de julio del 2016 en Las Vegas con un explosivo nocaut sobre el entonces invicto Martin Ruedas. Valdez ha hecho cuatro exitosas defensas de su cinturón incluyendo su aguerrida victoria sobre Quigg el pasado 10 de marzo.

“Como boxeador hay que seguir evolucionando para alcanzar las metas trazadas y creo que Eddy Reynoso me ayudará a convertirme en un boxeador más completo. Quiero ser uno de los mejores boxeadores del mundo y un legado especial en el deporte, voy a trabajar muy fuerte para lograr lo que quiero en el boxeo, pues quiero ser considerado uno de los mejores boxeadores mexicanos de todos los tiempos al final de mi carrera”, dijo Valdez

“Este es un gran reto para mí, Oscar Valdez es un gran boxeador, pero yo voy a trabajar en las cosas que tiene que mejorar para que se convierta en un peleador más completo. Creo que Oscar va a sacar lo mejor de mí como entrenador, mientras que yo sacaré lo mejor de Oscar como campeón mundial y para que sea un digno represente de México”, dijo Reynoso.
