 Los Angeles, CA): David “El Bandera Roja” Benavidez is in the middle of training camp for his upcoming fight against Anthony Dirrell, September 28th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Ca and LIVE on FOX PPV, but yesterday he decided to make a change in his training schedule to surprise kids at a local gym. A week ago he saw a video of kids at The Rock Boxing Gym, a gym he used to spar at a couple of years ago. The Rock is a non-profit gym, it doesn’t charge anyone 17 and under to train. The trainers, Elvis, Greg and Miguel volunteer every single evening to train the youth. Their goal is to help the youth get off the streets in a fun, healthy way. Team Benavidez was very touched by this and decided to go pay them a surprise visit. 
David Benavidez and Team walked into the gym yesterday evening, as soon as the youth saw David with his Green and Gold WBC Belt, their jaws dropped. The kids gathered around him as he presented The Rock Boxing Gym with an Honorary WBC Mini Belt in recognition for all they do for the community. David spoke about his journey as an Amateur, A Professional and how important it is to stay disciplined in Boxing. There was a Q & A with the kids, autographs, photos, David also brought plenty of gifts on behalf of the World Boxing Council. Team Benavidez ended their visit with a short training session where the kids asked more questions. They were very impressed with the tips David and his Father/Trainer Jose Benavidez Sr. gave them.
The Rock was very grateful for the visit by Team Benavidez:
Thank you so much for this, you have no idea the impact this has on the youth. This gym is not luxurious, we are in need of an upgrade, but it has a lot of heart and as long as the kids keep coming, we will not charge them. If they win, we win.” Quotes from David Benavidez:
” I was a young kid like them once, being here helps me remember everything I have gone through to be here today. The hard work doesn’t stop though, in life, we got to keep working harder to be better than we were yesterday.”“It’s my obligation as a Professional Boxer to come back to the gyms and do whatever I can to inspire the youth. They’re the future, they’re the ones we have to keep our eyes on. One day they will be the Champions and will also go back to inspire the youth.”“I want to make a couple a visits before my next fight, it really motivates me as well to see the youth. They’re the ones who support us the boxers, its only right we give them our time as well.”Follow David Benavidez and Team at:@benavidez300

UFC Returns to Boston With Light Heavyweight Thriller

Aug 22, 2019








LAS VEGAS – UFC® returns to Boston with a spectacular light heavyweight bout, as undefeated No. 4 ranked contender Dominick Reyes welcomes former middleweight champion Chris Weidman to the 205-pound division. In a featherweight contenders’ bout guaranteed to deliver fireworks, No. 5 ranked Zabit Magomedsharipov battles No. 11Calvin Kattar.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT ON ESPN®: REYES vs. WEIDMAN will air live from the TD Garden exclusively on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, October 18, with the prelims kicking off at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and on ESPN Deportes.  Doors open at 5 p.m. ET.

Reyes (11-0, fighting out of Victorville, Calif.) immediately turned heads upon joining the UFC in 2017 by delivering a Performance of the Night victory over Joachim Christensen. He has since made a rapid ascent up the light heavyweight rankings after securing impressive wins against Jared Cannonier, Ovince Saint Preux and former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir. Reyes now aims to add a former UFC champion to his resume and stake his claim for a title shot.

Weidman (14-4, fighting out of Baldwin, N.Y.) shocked the MMA world in 2013 by dethroning long-reigning middleweight champion Anderson Silva via knockout.

Known for his dynamic striking and slick grappling, he has netted memorable victories over Jeremy Stephens, Brandon Davis, Kyle Bochniak and Sheymon Moraes. Magomedsharipov now looks to once again steal the show and secure his 14th consecutive win.

A thrilling striker, Kattar (20-3, fighting out of Methuen, Mass.) has delivered sensational knockouts in his last three victories. During his UFC tenure, he has stopped Ricardo Lamas, Chris Fishgold and earned Fight of the Night honors for his TKO against Shane Burgos. Kattar is now poised to crack the featherweight top 5 with another highlight-reel finish in his Boston backyard.

Aug 19, 2019

LOS ANGELES (17 de agosto del 2019) — Emanuel ‘Vaquero’ Navarrete ya era campeón. Ahora es un monarca élite del deporte. Navarrete defendió exitosamente su título peso junior pluma de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) al noquear al invicto Francisco ‘Panchito’ De Vaca en tres brutales asaltos el sábado por la noche frente a 3,944 fanáticos en la primera cartelera de boxeo que se llevó a cabo en el Banc of California Stadium.

Navarrete, quien derrotó a Isaac Dogboe para ganar el título y luego lo venció en una revancha inmediata, regresará para defender su título el 14 de septiembre en la cartelera Tyson Fury vs. Otto Wallin que se celebrará en Las Vegas durante el fin de semana de independencia mexicana.

“Primero quiero agradecer a mis seguidores por el apoyo, y en segundo lugar, quiero continuar la tradición del boxeo mexicano en Los Ángeles. Quiero llenar arenas y seguir los pasos de las leyendas mexicanas”, dijo Navarrete. “Estoy hablando con {Top Rank} sobre pelear el 14 de septiembre en la cartelera Tyson Fury en Las Vegas. Quiero agradecer a Bob Arum y Zanfer Promotions por la oportunidad”.

El legendario promotor Bob Arum, dijo: “Él es mexicano. Está orgulloso de ser mexicano. El 14 de septiembre es el fin de semana de la independencia de México, y el mejor peleador de México estará allí defendiendo su título”.


El ex campeón mundial de peso junior pluma Jessie Magdaleno demostró que está listo para enfrentarse a los titanes del peso pluma. En su segunda pelea desde que subió de peso, Magdaleno logró una decisión técnica en el noveno asalto sobre Rafael Rivera después de sufrir un brutal golpe accidental que abrió una cortadura en su ojo derecho.

Magdaleno derribó a Rivera al comienzo del noveno asalto y prevaleció por tarjetas de 88-82, 89-81 (x2).

“Estas cosas pasan. Es parte del deporte. Tengo mucho respeto para Rivera. Él es un guerrero”, dijo Magdaleno. “Me sentí muy bien. Me sentí fuerte. Diría que mejor que nunca. Quiero un título mundial. Estoy listo”.


• El contendiente súperligero Arnold Barboza Jr. le propinó una paliza a Ricky Sismundo, y la esquina de Sismundo detuvo la pelea después de la conclusión del cuarto asalto.

“Quiero una oportunidad por el título mundial ahora”, dijo Barboza. “Quiero retar a todos los campeones. No importa quién sea o dónde sea. ¡Todo lo que quiero es enfrentarme a Ramírez, Prograis o Taylor, y lo quiero ahora!”

• El contendiente de peso welter Chris van Heerden (28-2-1, 12 KOs) continuó su marcha a una oportunidad titular al superar a Aslanbek Kozaev (33-3-1, 8 KOs) por una decisión unánime de ocho asaltos (79- 73 2x y 78-74). van Heerden ha ganado cinco combates seguidos desde que sufrió una derrota en el 2015 ante Errol Spence Jr.

“Fue una pelea dura, pero obtuve la victoria. Espero que el corte no me mantenga fuera de acción por mucho tiempo. Estoy empezando a estar más activo y, en poco tiempo, estaré listo para pelear contra cualquiera de los mejores pesos welter”.

• El invicto contendiente de peso mediano Janibek Alimkhanuly (7-0, 3 KOs) defendió exitosamente sus títulos de peso mediano Continental Americas del CMB y Global de la OMB con un nocaut en el quinto asalto sobre el veterano canadiense Stuart McLellan (27-4-3, 11 KOs).

• Javier Molina (20-2, 8 KOs), olímpico estadounidense del 2008, ganó su tercer combate consecutivo, logrando una decisión unánime de ocho asaltos (79-73 2x y 78-74) sobre Manuel Méndez (16-6-3, 11 KOs).

• El prospecto peso ligero Dmitry Yun mejoró a 2-0 con un triunfo por decisión unánime de seis asaltos sobre el veterano Javier Martínez (4-7, 3 KOs) con tarjetas de 57-54 2x y 56-54.

• El invicto prospecto dominicano de peso súper ligero Elvis Rodríguez (3-0-1, 3 KOs) hizo un trabajo rápido de Jesús González (6-3, 2 KOs), noqueándolo a los 1:42 del primer asalto.

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (Aug. 13, 2019): Jaime Munguia (33-0, 26 KOs) of Tijuana, Mexico hosted a press conference today at the Golden Boy Headquarters in Los Angeles, Calif. ahead of the 12-round defense of his WBO Junior Middleweight World Title against African warrior Patrick Allotey (40-3, 30 KOs). He was joined by co-main event fighters Ryan “Kingry” Garcia (18-0, 15 KOs) and Avery “A-Plus” Sparrow (10-1, 3 KOs) who will battle in a 10-round lighweight fight. The event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif. and will be streamed live on DAZN.
Below is what today’s participants had to say at the press conference: 
JAIME MUNGUIA, WBO Junior Middleweight Champion:
“I feel very happy to be the main event for this Mexican Independence Day fight. It’s going to be a great day for boxing and a great day for Mexico. My desire on September 14th is to demonstrate everything I’ve been learning with my new trainer Erick Morales. I have a great fighter in front of me and we are going to show it in the ring.”
“We know that Allotey is strong, fast and has a lot of knockouts. We will have to be very careful about that. But, I’ll be looking to give a great show, and I’ll look for the knockout on September 14.”
RYAN GARCIA. Lightweight Contender:
“Thank you to everyone who came here. Out of the three fights I was offered I knew Avery was the hardest. He’s a fast and undefeated counter puncher. He’s smart. I wanted to take the hardest fight I got offered. I’m going to bring my all and train like it’s my last, upping my speed and power. I’m going to bring my experience. I’ve seen a lot of fighters out there, and I’m going to bring those wins into the ring as well. Let’s all get ready! Avery is very fast and that’s what I’m going to have to train for. I know that my experience and my training will help me win this fight. I wanted to take on the hardest fight. I’m not trying to prove anything to myself, but to the people who doubt me and the people who don’t think I can handle this fight.”
AVERY SPARROW, Super Featherweight Contender:
“Thank you Golden Boy and all the fans for making this fight happen. Ryan knows I’m a good fighter and this is a big fight, I have a lot of support and people backing me. I’m on a different level than Ryan Garcia, and he hasn’t been to this level yet. I’ve fought fighters with similar experience before, but we will see what happens on September 14th. I hope to see everyone there.”
ERIK MORALES, Hall of Famer and Trainer of Jaime Munguia:
“I’m very grateful to be working with Munguia. He’s a great fighter and a young fighter with a lot of desire to show. It reminds me of when I was younger. He has been improving over our last two months of working together. I assure you that the Munguia you know will be different, but will also deliver the same explosive style he has. We are showing him and guiding him.”
OSCAR DE LA HOYA, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy:
“As always we will have a very stacked undercard for this fight. We are excited to host this fight at one of the most exciting venues in California. Dignity Health Sports Park brings out the best in every fighter, so we can’t wait for the fans to experience this fight. This fight will also include a Mexican fiesta featuring bands and activations from Tecate and Orange Crush. The event will be streamed live on DAZN, where we are committed to making the best fights and giving fans and affordable price to watch. Our partners at DAZN have been instrumental in bringing affordable boxing to the masses and on a global scale.” “We want to make sure that you’re watching the very best. We strongly feel that the fights we have scheduled for this event are even and will give fans their money’s worth. Avery knows what’s at stake and what can transpire by winning this fight. We are truly excited to be showcasing Munguia on an important day for boxing, especially now that he has a new trainer. We strongly feel this new trainer will bring out the best in Munguia. Munguia is willing to jump around into different divisions and every punch he throws is with bad intention. He’s a hard worker and he’s disciplined and dedicated. He’s also a real pleasure outside of the ring.”
FERNANDO BELTRAN, President of Zanfer Promotions:
“First of all, I would like to tell you that it’s an honor to be here in one of the best boxing companies in the world and with Oscar De La Hoya. I also have lots memories on this podium by being here with Erik Morales. Munguia is a special fighter and he will prove that he belongs on the top and fighting the best fighters out there, such as Canelo and Golovkin. I know everyone will enjoy this fight on Mexican Independence Day.”
Munguia vs. Allotey is a 12-round fight for the WBO Junior Middleweight Championship presented by Golden Boy in association with Zanfer Promotions. The event is sponsored by Tecate, “THE OFFICIAL BEER OF BOXING,” Hennessy “Never Stop.

Sosa KOs Rhodes and Ramirez Stunned in Debut

Aug 12, 2019

(Photo Credit: Mikey Williams.Top Rank)

PHILADELPHIA (Aug. 10, 2019) — The road back to a world title just got clearer for Jason Sosa. The Camden, New Jersey native and former super featherweight world champion stopped Lydell Rhodes in seven rounds to win his third in a row in front of 1,723 fans at the Liacouras Center.

Sosa scored three knockdowns in all, with Rhodes’ corner indicating their fighter had enough.

Sosa (23-3-4, 16 KOs) lost back-to-back bouts to Vasiliy Lomachenko and Yuriorkis Gamboa in 2017, but with the dominating win over longtime contender Rhodes, he thrust himself back into the world title conversation.

“It was pretty satisfying. I think we did everything we were supposed to do tonight,” Sosa said. “There’s room for improvement, but we’re a top contender now once again. We never left. I need a title. I want to call out {Miguel} Berchelt and get that WBC belt.

“Don’t forget about me. I’m here. I ain’t going nowhere. I’m a warrior, baby. I come to fight. I put on good fights. The fans see me and appreciate me. I come out every night and do it for them.”

Ramirez Stunned in Pro Debut

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez lost a four-round split decision to Adan Gonzales in one of the biggest upsets in recent boxing history. Gonzales (5-2-2, 2 KOs) knocked down Ramirez in the opening seconds of the first round to propel him to the win.

“When they announced a split decision, I knew I better have won that fight or something would have seriously been wrong,” Gonzales said. “I attacked him from the start, and I got the win. You ain’t seen the last of me.”

Said Ramirez: “I feel like I won that fight. He may have been throwing more, but I was the one landing the cleaner punches. This is a setback, but trust me, I will be back.”

KO King Berlanga Continues to Shine
 Middleweight sensation Edgar Berlanga (12-0, 12 KOs) made it 12 first-round knockouts in as many fights, stopping the usually durable Frenchman Gregory Trenel (11-5-2, 3 KOs) in 2:24. Trenel had never been knocked out in 17 previous professional fights.

“We went over the tape in the gym. It’s just repetition. We go over the same things, and each time we fight, we execute. He was a tough opponent. He took a good shot. He didn’t go down. He didn’t want to go down. 

“I felt the love from the crowd and my friend Fat Joe walked me to the ring. It was a great night. I’m proud to represent my Puerto Rican people.”
— South Philadelphia heavyweight prospect Sonny “The Bronco” Conto (4-0, 3 KOs) went the distance for the first time as a pro, shutting out Guillermo Del Rio (2-3-1, 2 KOs) over four rounds. Conto knocked down Del Rio in the fourth round and prevailed by identical scores of 40-35.

“You can’t load up on every punch in there,” Conto said. “This fight showed me how to be patient and work on the things that are going to get me to the next level.

“I’m used to being in there with guys who don’t go anywhere. I’ve sparred great fighters like Tyson Fury. That prepared me for a fight like this.”

— In a spirited battle of unbeaten welterweights, Paul Kroll (5-0, 4 KOs) defeated Shinard Bunch (2-1, 2 KOs) by unanimous decision (58-56 2X and 59-55). 

— Philadelphia native and featherweight prospect (10-0, 6 KOs) cruised to a six-round unanimous decision over Raheem Abdullah (3-3, 0 KOs) by scores of 60-52 and 59-53 2x.

— Jeremy “Magic Hands” Adorno improved to 2-0 with a third-round knockout over Fernando Robles (2-2, 0 KOs) in a super bantamweight contest. Adorno, a southpaw, scored the KO with a left hand to the body.

 Belfast Bash: Michael Conlan Scores KO

Conlan stops Diego Alberto Ruiz in 9 in front of sold-out Falls Park crowd

(Photo Credit: Top Rank)
BELFAST (Aug. 3, 2019) —The sold-out crowd of around 10,000 at Falls Park came to see Michael Conlan put on a memorable show. Conlan, Belfast’s featherweight fistic superhero, stepped on the gas late and knocked out veteran Diego Alberto Ruiz in the ninth round of a scheduled 10-rounder Saturday evening under the lights. 

With the win, Conlan (12-0, 7 KOs), who is ranked in the top 10 by two of the major sanctioning organizations, moved closer to a world title shot.
It was the second hometown bout of Conlan’s professional career, but this one was a particularly special occasion. The fight card was one of the premier events of the annual Féile an Phobail summer festival in West Belfast.
Ruiz (21-3, 10 KOs) attempted to move forward, but he was thwarted by the movement of Conlan, who alternated from orthodox to southpaw at times throughout the fight. Just as it appeared Ruiz was destined to go the distance, Conlan turned up the heat, knocked him down, and then forced a corner stoppage.
After the fight, this is what Conlan had to say:
“I am a very adaptable fighter. I can box, and I can push the pace. In the end, I got the finish, so I’m happy that I figured it out. I worked it out and answered questions of myself. When he was hurt, I got the finish.”
“Before the fight, I was really nervous, I’m not going to lie. I wasn’t even acting like I wasn’t nervous. I was just myself. I was nervous today. I didn’t know what to expect. When I started my ring walk, that’s the stuff I live for.”
“{The atmosphere} didn’t scare me as much as I thought it would. The first two songs were unbelievable, and when the Red Hot Chili Peppers (“Can’t Stop”) kicked in for my ring walk, I said to myself, ‘This is the reason I picked that song.’”
“I’m prouder that I got the finish. I can box people and I want longevity in my career, but to get the finish was extra special, and I’m really happy I did.”

“I’m ready for a world title soon. This time next year, I want to have a world title around my waist.”
