John Wayne Hibbert says his fans will be the key as he takes a big step up to face Leonardo Esteban Gonzalez for the vacant WBC International Light Welterweight title on Saturday night at The O2, live on Sky Sports.
Hibbert had hoped to be in a domestic clash on the bill with a host of Britain’s up and coming Light Welterweights in action, but instead he has landed a huge chance to leapfrog those rivals and move onto better things by facing the Argentine who has knocked out 15 of his 22 victims. More...

There were some good cards across the world over the weekend with two world title bouts as the main attraction.
WBC featherweight champ Jhonny Gonzalez, 57-8 (48), battered and toyed with faded former multi-weight world champ Jorge Arce, 64-8-2 (49), at Multiple Use Arena in Los Mochis, Mexico, dropping Arce twice before the one way traffic was stopped at 2:43 of the 11th round on Saturday night.
Arce announced his retirement afterward but will that pledge stick? Gonzalez will hopefully get an opportunity to unify the belts as the hammer-fisted left hook artist has paid his dues after a long and winding career.
On the undercard, 38 year old former two-weight world champ Celestino Caballero, 37-6 (24), had to use all his veteran wiles to survive 12 rounds with 22 year old heavy-handed contender Adrian Estrella, 19-0 (17), who pounded Caballero to the mat on four occasions to take a wide points verdict to retain the WBC Fecarbox super feather belt.
IBF super feather ruler Rances Barthelemy, 21-0 (12) kept hold of his crown with a competitive 12 round UD over challenger Fernando David Saucedo, 52-6 (3), who caused the champ a few problems via crafty boxing skills at Foxwoods Casino in Manshantucket, Connecticut in America.
Saucedo simply could not punch hard enough to trouble Barthelemy, who needs to up his activity rate if he is to be competitive among the division's elite.
On the undercard at Foxwoods, light middle Vanes Martirosyan, 35-1-1 (21), outworked opponent Willie Nelson, 23-2-1 (13), over ten rounds in an important contest for the WBO Intercontinental strap.
Former light heavyweight champ Chad Dawson, 32-4 (18), saw his career keep falling as he was handed a split decision loss by veteran Tommy Karpency, 24-4-1 (14), over ten rounds. More...

There are two world titles on the lines this evening as WBC Featherweight king Jhonny Gonzalez and IBF super feather boss Rances Barthelemy both see action.
Gonzalez, 56-8 (47), faces big ticket seller Jorge Arce, 64-7-2 (49), at the Multiplex Arena in Los Mochis, Mexico in what is sure to be an exciting bout for as long as it lasts.
At 35, Arce is on the downside of a great career that saw him hold world titles at light fly, bantam and super bantam while Gonzalez at 33 is still in his prime in his second reign as featherweight champ after holding a world title at bantam.
Expect no more than five rounds of all-guns blazing fisticuffs with Arce probably finishing the contest on his back but one can never count out "Travieso".
Barthelemy, 20-0 (12), meets the challenge of Argentina's Fernando David Saucedo, 52-5-3 (8), at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, CT.
Saucedo has a lot of experience and can box but without a concussive punch will be at a definite disadvantage against the far taller Cuban champion.
Barthelemy doesn't fight tall however, largely giving up his height advantage to scrap on the inside, giving the challenger a chance if he can control the distance and pace but this will probably be a successful defense for the champion.
