Trainer Coldwell Excited by Tony Bellew’s World Title Progress

By Coldwell Boxing July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Liverpool’s Tony Bellew returned from a nine month absence last weekend to halt experienced Croatian, Ivica Bacurin, in the last session of a scheduled ten rounder. The Liverpool man dominated proceedings from the get go and, after dropping his resilient opponent multiple times, he finally got the job done seconds before the final bell.

Hopes within Camp Bellew are firmly attached to a third world title shot and trainer, Dave Coldwell, is insistent that the time is right for his hungry charge.

“We’re not far from where we want to be and I see things falling into place for Tony now,” buzzed Coldwell. “Last Friday was our fourth fight together and the things we’ve been working on for the last eighteen months are beginning to look the part. More...


Sam Eggington Calls For All-Out War Against Foot July 18

By Matchroom Boxing July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Sam Eggington has predicted his British and Commonwealth Welterweight clash with Glenn Foot will be an all-out war at the Manchester Arena on July 18, live on Sky Sports.

Eggington puts his Commonwealth strap on the line for the first time with the vacant British belt also up for grabs, and with the attacking styles of both fighters likely to gel – a classic is on the cards in Manchester.

The 21 year old Stourbridge smasher has stopped his last five opponents, picking up the scalp of Denton Vassell and landing the WBC International Silver title against Shayne Singleton and the Commonwealth belt against Joseph Lamptey in the process – along with a growing reputation for must-see fights.

“Relentless” Russell Henshaw Coming Forward At Cruiserweight

By Boxing Press July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Ilkeston's 'Relentless' Russell Henshaw knows all about hard work, and is willing to pay his dues, both inside and outside the ring, in pursuit of cruiserweight titles.

The amiable 30-year-old balances a burgeoning boxing career with jobs as a bricklayer and tree surgeon and will next appear, in the ring, on July 25 at Derby Arena.

“Recently I've been working on the railways swinging a chainsaw about and chopping down trees,” he said. “I've been working in the heat all week wearing chainsaw trousers and thick, heavy clothing. It helps me lose weight, but, other than that, it's horrible. More...


Jenkins Ready To Take His Frustrations Out In Manchester

By Matchroom Boxing July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Chris Jenkins is ready to put ‘the hardest period as a pro’ behind him and claim the vacant British Light Welterweight title at the Manchester Arena on July 18, live on Sky Sports.

Jenkins moved to 16-0 in October as he continued to build on the momentum from his Prizefighter triumph and then landing the WBC International strap, but a run of bad luck has kept him on the side lines – and the Welshman is ready to unleash months of frustration in his first British title fight. More...

By Matchroom Boxing July 4th, 2015 All Boxing News

Gavin McDonnell will defend his European Super Bantamweight title against Jeremy Parodi at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on September 5, live on Sky Sports.

The Doncaster favourite makes the first defence of the belt he landed with a wide points win over Oleksandr Yegerov in March in Sheffield and can expect a tough test against the Frenchman who held the IBF International belt and gets a second crack at the title having challenged Carl Frampton for it in October 2013. More...


Jones Vows To Dethrone British Middleweight Champ Blackwell

By Boxing Press June 30th, 2015 All Boxing News

Middleweight challenger Damon Jones believes age will be no barrier when he steps up in class to face British champion Nick Blackwell on July 25 at Derby Arena, live on Channel 5.

The promising 22-year-old has looked faultless so far in his professional career – winning 13 bouts on the spin – but has yet to go past six rounds and has yet to meet a competitor quite like Blackwell. Not that it matters in Jones' mind, of course. More...

By Hatton Promotions June 26th, 2015 All Boxing News

Lucas Browne has laid down the gauntlet to WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, telling the American to name the time and place for a fight.

And Wilder has, this week, responded in a video posted online saying the matter is now "personal" and that Browne may well be his next fight. More...


Chagaev, Pianeta Face Off At Hamburg Press Conference

By Boxing Press June 24th, 2015 All Boxing News

On Monday, Ruslan Chagaev and Francesco Pianeta, their respective trainers Pedro Diaz and Dirk Dzemski as well as promoter Timur Dugazaev and co-promoter Ulf Steinforth, met for a press conference at Casino Esplanade in Hamburg, Germany.

Regular WBA Heavyweight Champion Chagaev and his challenger Pianeta perfectly adjusted to the location. Chagaev and Pianeta made the impression of sitting at a poker table rather than in front of the media. Instead of going all in or laying their cards on the table for a showdown, the fighters showed their best poker faces. More...

Campbell Training With Guillermo Rigondeaux In Miami

By Matchroom Boxing June 24th, 2015 All Boxing News

Luke Campbell MBE is getting the best possible preparation for his Hull grudge match with Tommy Coyle on August 1 at the KC Lightstream Stadium in Hull, live on Sky Sports – by training alongside Super Bantamweight king Guillermo Rigondeaux in Miami.

Campbell is in the States as part of his preparation for his WBC Lightweight title eliminator with Coyle this summer, and the 26 year old said in his exclusive column in the Hull Daily Mail that the searing heat of Miami and training with two-time Olympic champion Rigondeaux is the perfect preparation for the big night in Hull.

“This is my third camp out in Miami so far this year so I know the routine and how to get the best out of my time here,” said Campbell. “That helps out here as it's hot as hell and humid, making the work we are doing even tougher. More...


Lemieux vs. N’Dam, Porter vs. Broner, Ward vs. Smith

By Danny Wilson June 20th, 2015 All Boxing News

There are three big fights scheduled for this evening and they all take place in North Amerca, but only one of them features a world title on offer.

That takes place at the globe's largest Hockey arena, Bell Centre, in boxing-mad Montreal, Canada, where hometown hero David Lemieux faces off against France's Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam for the vacant IBF middleweight title.

As his record suggests, Lemieux, 33-2 (31), is a genuine slugger, able to gun down rivals with a single shot, but the 26 year old Montreal man can also box a bit and can mount a serviceable defense when necessary.

N'Dam, 31-1 (18), is a stick and move boxer who likes to stay on the outside but is also an emotional fighter who can be drawn into a slugfest, giving this contest against Lemieux a real chance at fireworks.

The Cameroon born visitor holds a height advantage over the local man and is very good at maintaining distance behind the jab, firing off right hands when he gets an opponent out of position as they try to follow him around the ring.

N'Dam has the advantage of having gone 10 rounds or more on 11 occasions, including five instances of the full 12 round distance while Lemieux has gone 10 rounds or more on only three occasions, going 12 rounds only once.

Once the bell rings, expect Lemieux to go for the knockout from the start as he will attempt to close distance behind a triple jab and land the right hand on the way in and the left hook at close quarters.

N'dam will try to counter this with constant circling and right hands over the top of Lemieux's jabs, disrupting the attack strategy of the local man, who needs to be set in order to drop his bombs. More...


Top Rank’s Arum Gives Gennady Golovkin Some Advice

By Jose Espinoza June 20th, 2015 All Boxing News

In a recent interview, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum said that Gennady Golovkin should move up to 168 lb, to the super middleweight division, if he wants to get the big payday fights.

This comment from Arum comes as a response to being asked if “GGG” would ever fight Miguel Cotto or Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

According to Arum, neither Cotto nor Alvarez will give Golovkin the time of day because he is not a pay-per-view draw and there is not enough monetary incentive to fight him. More...
