Lomachenko has held the WBO super featherweight title since 2016, and previously the WBO featherweight title from 2014 to 2016; he won the latter title in only his third professional fight.

Diaz said their camp are not concerned about having to gain weight from superbantamweight to superfeatherweight. "The weight will not be a problem, Lomachenko has an excellent and serious team, and so does Rigondeaux," Diaz commented. "The greatest virtue of Rigondeaux is that he will go for victory."

The 36-year-old Rigondeaux had his last fight resulting in a controversial "no decision" against Mexican Moises Flores on June 17 of this year. The 29-year-old Lomachenko recently stopped Colombian Miguel Marriaga in the seventh round on Aug. 5. Arum said Friday that the fight will be held in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Both boxers are widely considered as two of the best amateur fighters in history.

One of Andre Ward's idols, former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr., thinks the unbeaten boxer deserves a high place in boxing history. "I don't know where his place in boxing history is, but it's near the top because he was very dominant in his time," Jones explained to BoxingScene. He said Ward beat a lot of people in a lot of different ways, showing a lot of versatility. Jones called Ward a great fighter, one of the greatest champions, pound for pound the best, and had a brilliant career.

Former WBA world featherweight champion Carl Frampton (23-1, 14 KOs) would want to face WBO titlist Oscar Valdez (23-0, 19 KOs) because he is planning to be back as a world titleholder. Frampton lost to Mexican Leo Santa Cruz and his title in January. He commented on Twitter on Monday, Frampton responded: "Fun fight if it ever happens". Valdez defended his title Friday night by unanimous decision over Genesis Servania in Tucson, Arizona but not after the Mexican champ went down for the first time in his career.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum said: "We're going to try to get Frampton. We would do it next year, and we would put it maybe someplace in Texas or maybe Las Vegas. Frampton would probably object to coming to Tucson, but we can find a place to do that fight. It's a great fight." The featherweight division is loaded with deadly world champions in Leo Santa Cruz (WBA), Oscar Valdez (WBO), Lee Selby (IBF) and Gary Russell Jr (WBC).

Boxing was considered too brutal to be included at the first modern Olympics in 1896 in Athens, but it was competed as a demonstration sport in 1904 in St. Louis and then finally joined as a medal sport in 1908 in London. Boxing was excluded once again in 1912 in Stockholm because boxing was banned in Sweden. Boxing was permanently held as an Olympic sport in 1920 in Antwerp. Since then it has produced some of the most popular champions in Olympic history like Cassius Clay, George Foreman, Oscar De La Hoya and Teofilo Stevenson.

Hall of Fame referee Joe Cortez is not too overwhelmed with the victory of WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (18-0-1, 12 KOs) who won a controversial twelve round unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.          


"Take nothing away from Jeff Horn, he’s a good outstanding fighter, he’s faced a lot of talent, but that decision over Pacquiao was a controversial decision in the eyes of a lot fans out there. A lot of fans felt that Pacquiao won that fight, so Jeff Horn is a champion but he beat a guy when a lot of fans thought he lost," Cortez was interviewed over On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

According to data published earlier this week on BoxingScene.com, the HBO televised card had an average audience of 639 thousand fans and peaks of up to 753 thousand, almost 160 thousand viewers less than SuperFly 1, which was headlined by the rematch between Sriskaet Sor Rungvisai and Román 'Chocolatito' González

Estrada is angered that he, along with the other fighters on the show, are paid so little in comparison to the higher weights boxers who appear on HBO.

"I think it's an abuse as they say. It's crumbs for a card as big as this. I'm not saying this just for me, I'm saying this for the entire card - which had the best smaller-weight fighters - and so many people enjoyed it that were there live and also those watching on television. Yes, it is an abuse that they do not pay us what we really deserve, because sometimes we give a much bigger spectacle than some of the [boxers from the] higher weights that earn millions," Estrada said to ESPN Deportes.

Rey Vargas, the WBC super bantamweight champion who is also featured on HBO as of late, was listening to Estrada's comments and agreed with his countryman. He said sometimes the salaries do not correspond with the A-level performances that many of the smaller fighters put forth in the ring.

Magdaleno struck 1st as in round one, he floored Dogboe with big combination that followed a flush straight left.  Dogboe steadied himself and began to win rounds and get back into the fight.  He drew even in round five, when he landed a perfect counter right that sent Magdaleno to the canvas.  Magdaleno took punishment throughout the balance of the round and the momentum was trending towards Dogboe.

The fight was close heading into the championship rounds, but Dogboe made sure no judges were needed as he dropped Magdaleno with a thudding body shot that sent Magdaleno to the canvas.  A left hook to the head ended things as Magdaleno went t the deck for a 3rd and final time, and the bout was waved off at 1:38.

Dogboe, 121.1 kbs of Accra, GHA is now 19-0 with 13 knockouts.  Magdaleno, 122 lbs of Las Vegas is 25-1.

Two of the world’s most dynamic 115-pound talents — on a collision course to a potential title unification bout — will take center stage at the Save Mart Center on the first Top Rank on ESPN world championship card on ESPN+, Saturday, May 26 at 9:30 p.m. ET. 

Filipino standout Jerwin ‘Pretty Boy’ Ancajas will defend the International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior bantamweight world title in the main event against countryman Jonas Sultan. It marks the first world title bout featuring two Filipino fighters in 93 years, when Pancho Villa defended the world flyweight title against Clever Sencio on May 2, 1925.

Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder: It's Complicated

By Tris Dixon

THERE are plenty of things to get upset about in the life of a boxing fan.

We boast a sport of splintered leaders, struggle for mainstream respect, we are home to drug users and abusers who are too often allowed off the hook for the errors of their ways and that is even before we venture into the realms of poor decisions and judging anomalies.

Yet there is little that lights a fire under us like painful, protracted and public negotiations for a superfight, especially when each week that passes the said contest seems to move further away rather than closer.
