Continued from last page...


Fury, 29, has won each of his three previous fights in Belfast. The most recent came against Kevin Johnson in December 2012, and he said: “Last time I boxed here was six years ago, and it’s always been very welcoming. It’s going to be even more welcoming as a returning world champion.

“I hope this time I’m going to get someone who’s going to have a fight with me, punch me in the face a couple of times, give me a busted nose and a busted mouth.”

He was unconvincing when he returned against the little-known Sefer Seferi in Manchester earlier this month, and Warren added: “He’s still got weight to come off. He was training to come back, now he’s going to train to fight. That’s the difference.

“If Carl comes through, one way or the other, that fight (against Warrington) – if they’re both winning fighters – will happen next year. If he wins, he’ll fight Warrington next. I’m meeting Josh tomorrow.”

Hughie Fury Would Take Joshua Fight Right Away, Says Trainer

Hughie Fury (21-1, 11 KOs) is inching up the IBF's heavyweight rankings.

Last September in Manchester, Fury challenged Joseph Parker for the WBO heavyweight title - and lost a twelve round majority decision.

He made his return to the ring in May and secured an impressive fifth round stoppage of Sam Sexton to capture the British heavyweight title in Bolton.

Fury is hoping to get his hands on IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles that are owned by Anthony Joshua.

Fury is now ranked in the number five position under the IBF - and he hopes to secure another world title shot in the near future. 

According to his father and trainer, Peter Fury, they would accept the Joshua fight as soon as possible.

"We're looking early September. He's ready. If we could challenge for it tomorrow, we would. We're just going to see who we can get, and get him back in the mandatory position as soon as possible," Peter Fury told Sky Sports.

"We wholeheartedly believe in Hughie and we're looking forward to getting there, but that's not quite going to be yet, so we have to look at the next fight, and take it from there. As soon as it comes available, if Hughie is fortunate enough to be in that position, we'll gladly take it."

The IBF recently ordered Jarrell Miller and Kubtrat Pulev to fight each other in a final eliminator - with the winner gaining a mandatory crack at Joshua. Initially Whyte was ordered to fight Pulev - but instead he opted to take on Parker on July 28th in a high profile fight on Sky Sports Box Office.

As far as Joshua, he's in talks for a potential unification with WBC heavyweight title Deontay Wilder. If that falls out, then Joshua would make a defense against the WBA's mandatory challenger, Alexander Povetkin of Russia.

Crawford-Spence is Impossible To Do Without PPV, Says Arum

By Steve Kim

The potential unification match-up between IBF welterweight champion, Errol Spence (24-0, 21 KOs) and WBO titlist Terence Crawford (33-0, 24 KOs) is one of the very best that can be made in the sport of boxing.

After both scored emphatic victories the past couple of weeks, there is now a clamoring for the two to collide.

Two weeks ago, Crawford dominated and stopped Jeff Horn to capture the WBO title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. And last weekend, Spence demolished mandatory challenger Carlos Ocampo in one round to retain his belt in Frisco, Texas.

There are some hurdles in the way, namely that Spence is aligned with Premier Boxing Champions and Showtime, while Crawford is promoted by Top Rank, which has an exclusive content deal with ESPN.

But with pay-per-view those hurdles could be cleared as both sides could share in the distribution of the event and the economic proceeds that come from it.

"That is absolutely correct," stated Crawford's promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, to BoxingScene.com.

"I mean, it is impossible in my opinion to do this fight Crawford against Spence either on ESPN or Showtime without pay-per-view because the legitimate demands for both fighters, and considering what they are both paid in the past, would just make it prohibitive. It would blow Showtime's budget, it would have a big dent in our budget."

Crawford, in his last outing versus Horn on June 9th, was reportedly paid in the neighborhood of $3 million. To satisfy the financial demands of both boxers and involve both networks the pay-per-view platform is the only way to go says Arum

"So I really think that I would love to sit with [Spence's manager Al] Haymon and with [Showtime Sports head Stephen] Espinoza and really work this out so it isn't just idle conversation," Arum said.

PACQUIAO-MATTHYSSE FEATS, FACTS AND FIGURES 8: PACQUIAO MATCH IS A DREAM FIGHT FOR MATTHYSSE 

By Maloney L. Samaco
PhilBoxing.com
Tue, 19 Jun 2018



Lucas Matthysse fully concentrates on his fight with Manny Pacquiao on July 15 at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. “For Lucas it’s a dream come true. He’s wanted to fight Pacquiao for a number of years now, since a number of years back. But for him this is a career defining moment. It’s a dream fight for him. He’s treating it exactly like that,” Eric Gomez of Golden Boy promotions told Boxing News. 


“He’s had two setbacks in his career, two setbacks. One of them was the Danny Garcia fight,” Gomez said. “Obviously the fight with [Viktor] Postol. That was a mandatory fight, he ended up getting injured in the fight and those were the two setbacks in his career. But Lucas has been one of the top fighters for many years now. He’s very exciting. It’s translated to many fans here in the United States because of his style. He’s an aggressive fighter with a big punch.” 

Gomez believes that Matthysse (39-4, 36 KOs, 1 no contest) has the critical advantages heading to the Pacquiao fight. He likes Lucas' chances because of the way he’s preparing, and his mental attitude. "He right now in camp is living, eating, breathing Manny Pacquiao. That’s all he thinks about day and night. I think that’s an advantage for him because Manny’s a little past his prime. He’s still a very good fighter. Probably one of the best, he can beat most." 

Gomez explained that Manny has a lot of things he has been doing like being a legislator in the Philippines and he’s got s lot of business ventures. He thinks they’re fighting Manny at the right time. who's a little distracted now. "I think that’s the advantage Lucas has. He’s already talking about other fights, he’s talking fighting [Vasyl] Lomachenko or any of the other champions out there. I think he’s overlooking Lucas and that could be a mistake,” Gomez said. 

A win would place Matthysse in the pedestal of boxing's elite. “He wants to fight the top guys, he would like to fight any of the champions. He’d love to fight a Keith Thurman. But anybody. He wants to fight the best. He wants to be the best but we’ll see. We’re going to take it one fight at a time,” Gomez elaborated. 

“This is his moment. This is what he’s waited for years now and that’s all we’re concentrating on right now, is Manny Pacquiao. He’s got to beat Manny Pacquiao. If he loses to Manny, he’s going to have a really tough time whether he can continue. It really depends on this fight. This is everything for him," Gomez added.

Freddie Roach talked about being sacked in Pacquiao’s coming fight in Barbershop Conversations: “I hope he does well. Yeah, I mean, I had 16 great years with the kid so I hope he does well. I wish him nothing but the best.” 

When asked how he found out he would not be training Pacquiao for the fight against Matthysse he answered: “Same way everyone else did. By the newspapers. No calls but what are you going to do?” 

He spoke on his lasting memories with Pacquiao: “We had a relationship that was unbelievable for 16 years. Most marriages don’t last that long! The thing is I wish I got a call from him because I would go for free.”

In the Pacquiao-Matthysse undercard, WBA junior flyweight titlist Venezuela's Carlos Canizales (20-0-1, 16 KOs), 25-years-old, will defend his crown for the first time when he faces 2016 Chinese Olympian Lu Bin (1-0, 1 KOs), who is 23-years-old. If Bin grabs the flyweight belt, even if it is a minor title, in his second professional fight he would break the record for fewest fights to win a world title held by Ukraine's Vasiliy Lomachenko and Thailand's Saensak Muangsurim who became champions in three pro fights. 

In another title bout on the same card, former flyweight titlist South African Moruti Mthalane (35-2, 24 KOs), 35-years-old, and Pakistan's Muhammad Waseem (8-0, 6 KOs), who is 30-years-old, will clash for the IBF flyweight belt vacated by Donnie Nietes, who moved up to fight for a title in a fourth weight class as a superflyweight. 

The card will also include a 12-round WBA featherweight fight for a minor belt between Jhack Tepora (21-0, 16 KOs), 25-years-old, of the Philippines, and Edivaldo "Indio" Ortega (26-1-1, 12 KOs), who is 27, from Mexico.

"I am excited. The fans are excited. Malaysia is ready. Let's get on with this fight," said Pacquiao, who is being trained by childhood friend and longtime assistant coach Buboy Fernandez. Pacquiao (59-7-2, 38 KOs), now aged 39, is the only eight-division world champion, will fight for the first time since he lost his WBO welterweight title via a controversial unanimous decision to Jeff Horn last July.

Nietes in pound-for-pound breakthrough

By Joaquin Henson
PhilBoxing.com
Sun, 17 Jun 2018




Former WBO minimumweight, WBO lightflyweight and IBF flyweight champion Donnie Nietes became only the third Filipino ever after Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire, Jr. to make it to the top 10 Ring Magazine pound-for-pound honor roll as he was ranked No. 9 in the latest ratings. 



It’s the first time Nietes has been named to the top 10 and he’s the only Filipino but the fourth Asian in the ladder. The other Asians are No. 1 Gennady Golovkin of Kazakhstan, No. 5 Naoya Inoue of Japan and No. 6 Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand. Ironically, Nietes is without a belt at the moment, relinquishing his IBF 112-pound title last April to move up to the superflyweight division. 

ALA Boxing president Michael Aldeguer tipped off The Star the other day on the breakthrough. Aldeguer also said Nietes will battle countryman Aston Palicte for the vacant WBO superflyweight crown. “It’s 99 percent sure but we’re just waiting for the signed contract,” he said. “It will be on Aug. 18 in Ce

It’s the first time Nietes has been named to the top 10 and he’s the only Filipino but the fourth Asian in the ladder. The other Asians are No. 1 Gennady Golovkin of Kazakhstan, No. 5 Naoya Inoue of Japan and No. 6 Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand. Ironically, Nietes is without a belt at the moment, relinquishing his IBF 112-pound title last April to move up to the superflyweight division. 

ALA Boxing president Michael Aldeguer tipped off The Star the other day on the breakthrough. Aldeguer also said Nietes will battle countryman Aston Palicte for the vacant WBO superflyweight crown. “It’s 99 percent sure but we’re just waiting for the signed contract,” he said. “It will be on Aug. 18 in Cebu or in September abroad.” 

Nietes said it’s always been his dream to join Pacquiao and Donaire among the multiple Filipino titleholders. “This is the challenge I’ve been waiting for,” he said. “To go up in weight is never easy but my dream is to become a fourth division world champion and to fight all the big names at superflyweight. This is a new challenge for me and I’m very happy that ALA Promotions has supported me to pursue my dream.” 

Nietes, 36, hasn’t lost in 33 consecutive fights since losing a disputed split decision to Indonesian Angky Angkota, who weighed six pounds over the limit, in Jakarta in 2004. His record is now 41-1-4, with 23 KOs. Nietes has the distinction of defeating eight world champions----Edgar Sosa, Pornsawan Porpramook, Juan Carlos Reveco, Francisco Rodriguez, Ramon Garcia, Raul Garcia, Moises Fuentes and Mario Rodriguez. 

Nietes was devastating in knocking out Reveco in the seventh round to retain his IBF flyweight title at the Forum in Inglewood last February. “I can bring up my power to 115,” said Nietes in Pilipino. “It’s all about timing. When I’m not training, I walk around at 130 so I think I can even move up to 118 and 122. I used to walk around at 125 to 127. Since training with (Speed of Sport conditioning coach) Nick (Curson) for Reveco, I’ve developed more power and my punch is stronger. I’ve never felt like this before.” 

Nietes said unifying the 115-pound championship is a goal. “I’m ready to fight anyone,” he said. “It depends on the negotiations. Whatever Sir Michael decides, I’ll do. To become the undisputed champion would be an honor.” The reigning superflyweight champions are the IBF’s Jerwin Ancajas, WBA’s Khalid Yafai of the UK and WBC’s Srisaket.
