World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Thurman, Chagaev, Nietes, Flanagan Win

By Wellington Amadulu July 13th, 2015 All Boxing Results

It was a night of fireworks in the squared circle as three of four world title contests taking place on Saturday evening ended inside the distance.

In America, heavy-handed WBA welter champ Keith Thurman went to war with former titlist Luis Collazo at the USF Sundome in Tampa, FL before opening up a bad cut above the challenger's eye in the seventh round, prompting Team Collazo to prevent their man from answering the bell for the eighth frame.

After staying on the outside and attempting to potshot Thurman in the first two rounds, southpaw Collazo began to pressure the champion and that led to a lot of toe-to-toe exchanges.

Both fighters scored well to the head and body but Thurman had better hand-speed and power. Collazo nearly pulled off a massive upset with just seconds to go in the fifth round when he dug a powerful left to Thurman's ribs.

The champ's knees buckled and he reeled around the ring as Collazo gave chase and threw everything he had to try and finish off Thurman, who was shaken by several more body shots but was saved by the bell.

Thurman was a lot more cautious from that point on, using movement and roundhouse punches to keep Collazo at bay. Until the challenger got cut by a punch in the seventh, this was the hardest fight of Thurman's career and not one that he was certain to have won had the contest continued.

Collazo, now 36-7 (19), shows no signs of slowing down at age 34 and remains a difficult opponent for any of the titlists at 147 pounds.

Thurman moves to 26-0 (22), and afterward called out reigning divisional kingpin Floyd Mayweather Jr. More...


Nurse Plots Revenge Against Ryan If He Can Defeat Jenkins

By Matchroom Boxing July 13th, 2015 All Boxing News

Tyrone Nurse says winning the British Welterweight title against Chris Jenkins on July 18 at the Manchester Arena live on Sky Sports, would be a dream come true – and believes it would set up the rematch he craves against Dave Ryan.

Nurse and Jenkins lock horns for the vacant belt on a huge night of boxing in Manchester, and the 25 year old Huddersfield stylist believes their fight could be a show-stealer as both men desperately want to land the coveted British strap.

“Chris wants to win that British title as much as I do,” said Nurse. “I’m determined to take that home with me back to Yorkshire. You ask any British boxer at any level - it is the one belt we all dream of winning, it’s so nice looking. More...


Team Fury Frustrated As No One Willing To Face Hughie

By Boxing Press July 13th, 2015 All Press Releases

By Peter Fury:

We're in the south of France, we've got excellent facilities and the weather is perfect. It's 35-degrees [95 F] every day. What more could anyone ask for?

We're on top of a mountain, living by an old monastery, and it's a struggle just getting up the steep hills each day. There's plenty of outside activities, too. The lads in camp are doing a lot of core work, strength and conditioning, and simply using the nature and the land around us. More...


Are Negotiations For Cotto vs. Alvarez Almost Finished?

By Jose Espinoza July 11th, 2015 All Boxing Articles

The much anticipated bout between Miguel Cotto and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez occuring this fall should be confirmed sometime this month or early August.

According to sources, Roc Nation Sports, who represents Cotto and Golden Boy Promotions, who represents Alvarez, are reportedly still working out the details on a specific date and venue.

Cotto's adviser, Gabriel Peñagaricano, has reportedly mentioned a November date for the fight but he also cautioned that the date will be linked to the venue itself.

In the matter of set weight for the bout, it seems like that's already settled. According to media sources, the contract weight for the fight will be 155 pounds. It will be sold as a weight where neither fighter will have any sort of advantage.

Cotto, who fights as a middleweight has only really fought at that weight against Sergio Martinez; against every other opponent he has come in under 155. Alvarez is considered a super welterweight fighter and has come in at 155 in two occasions, which were both victories, against Erislandy Lara and Alfredo Angulo.

Another matter that is resolved, according to media sources, is that the fight will be broadcast on HBO pay-per-view. The cable company should be excited about this contest as it will most likely generate enormous pay-per-view sales among the Latin community in the United States and boxing aficionados.

Another advantage for HBO is that the winner is most likely going to take on Gennady Golovkin, which will guarantee another huge pay-per-view event for the television company in 2016. More...
