Promoter Coldwell Puts On Trainer Hat For Bomber Bellew

By Coldwell Boxing July 4th, 2014 All Press Releases

Sheffield’s Dave Coldwell is a boxing trainer. In fact, he’s a very good one. A bulging client list that once included Sheffield pair, Ryan Rhodes and Kell Brook, Coldwell’s window for preparation opportunities has been a small one in recent times with the Yorkshire man dedicating a vast amount of his hectic schedule to promoting and managing.

When Liverpool’s Tony Bellew made the call to Coldwell’s busy line enquiring whether he’d like to put the pads back on, the man who played a part in George Groves' phenomenal rise had no doubts about what his answer would be. More...

By Matchroom Boxing July 4th, 2014 All Press Releases

Crawford Rockets To Top Of Lightweights With Gamboa Win

By Danny Wilson July 1st, 2014 All Boxing Articles

With consecutive victories over Ricky Burns and Yuriorkis Gamboa, is America's Terence Crawford now the top man in the lightweight division?

Crawford, 24-0 (17), fresh off Saturday night's dismantling of Gamboa in a homecoming clash at CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska, burst onto the world stage this past March after six years of toiling on undercards during a long matriculation process.

The spotlight moment came at the Scottish Exhibition Center in Glasgow as the 26 year old Ohama man wrested the WBO title from Ricky Burns with an intriguing display of his stance switching style.

And it was only after turning southpaw after five rounds that Crawford was able to start hitting the target against the lightning-quick Gamboa, who was gunned down in the ninth round.

But what lies ahead for Crawford, who has hinted that he may no longer be able to make the division's 135 pound limit?

If he does stay at lightweight for one more contest, it would likely be a unification clash with longtime IBF king Miquel Vasquez of Mexico, who is even taller than Crawford at 5'10. More...

Darleys Perez Captures WBA Interim Lightweight Title

By Gary Shaw Productions June 30th, 2014 All Boxing News

Saturday night in the Dominican Republic, Gary Shaw Productions and Thompson Boxing Promotions lightweight Darleys Perez (30-1, 19 KOs), captured the WBA Interim Title with a hard fought victory against Argenis Lopez (19-1, 7 KOs), who was fighting in his home country.

Lopez never really got into a rhythm and Perez took advantage of the situation by outworking him throughout the fight. Neither fighter was seriously hurt. Scorecards read 116-112 and 117-111 twice, all in favor for Perez. More...

Gamboa vs. Crawford Tonight For WBO Lightweight Title

By Richard Eberline June 28th, 2014 All Boxing Previews

Omaha, Nebraska returns to the world title spotlight after four decades as favorite son Terrance Crawford put his WBO lightweight title at risk against Cuban legend Yuriorkis Gamboa this evening at CenturyLink Center.

For Crawford, 23-0 (16), this is the first time in his career that he's fighting in front of his hometown while Gamboa, 23-0 (16), will be making just his fourth appearance over the last three years.

After six years of mostly obscure matriculation, Crawford finally stepped into the limelight this past March, unseating WBO champ Ricky Burns in impressive fashion in front of a hostile Scottish audience.

For his efforts, the 26 year old is rewarded with a first defense against one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, former Olympic Gold Medallist and WBA/IBF featherweight champ Gamboa.

A veteran of five world title bouts and three Interim world title contests, 32 year old Gamboa has much more experienced at top level, something that could pair with the pressure of fighting at home for the first time to make for a difficult night for Crawford.

But it will likely be the powerful combination of Gamboa's remarkable hand speed and lightning reflexes that gives Crawford the biggest headaches.

The champion has excellent skills but is rather mechanical and upright in comparison to the much shorter Gamboa, who fights with a fluidity that has proven very difficult for opponents to cope with. More...
