IKossedLawlersSalad - Team Martinez has no problems facing Canelo, only if they agree to 160 pounds and HBO telecast.


Martinez would go to 154 for a Floyd fight but not for Canelo.

That should let Alvarez know that he's not a shot caller yet.

absolutely, well GB had September 14th planned for Canelo's first PPV, regardless of his opponent..that's if he gets by Trout, which a lot of people already are doing.

Interim featherweight world title holder Javier Fortuna will fight Miguel Zamudio on April 19th on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights, promoter Sampson Lewkowicz confirmed to BoxingScene.com Wednesday morning.

Although earlier reports had the fight taking place in Fortuna's native Dominican Republic, Lewkowicz explained that he is still attempting to secure a location for the fight to take place. That venue and city will probably be in the United States to accomdate ESPN.

Fortuna (21-0, 15 KOs) will make the first defense of the WBA interim title he won n December 8th over Patrick Hyland at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.

Fortuna has trained for previous fights alongside Sergio Martinez in Port Hueneme, CA.

Hailing from Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico, Zamudio (25-1-1, 13 KOs) won an eight round split decision over Gilberto Bolanos on December 14th. He is unbeaten in his last 21 bouts in a row since being stopped in the second round by Adrian Young in December of 2009.

April 19th will mark the first time Zamudio will be fighting outside of Mexico.

Denis Lebedev-Guillermo Jones Set For 5/17 in Russia

By Rick Reeno

International promoter Vladimir Hryunov has advised BoxingScene.com that Denis Lebedev will defend his WBA cruiserweight title against "champion in recess" Guillermo Jones on May 17th at the Crocus City Hall in Myakinino, Russia.

The show will be co-promoted by Hryunov and Don King, who bid bid $712,000 to secure the promotional rights to Lebedev (25-1, 19 KOs) vs. Jones (38-3-2, 30 KOs).

Hryunov says the event will be "sensational" and a strong undercard will be put together. King will travel to Russia in April to join Hryunov at the press conference to officially announce the fight.

Jones, 40, was stipped of the title after making only two defenses in four years. Five other planned title defenses were postponed or cancelled. The WBA finally took away his title after Jones postponed, twice, a mandatory fight with Lebedev. But, the WBA left Jones with the ability to get a direct title shot.

Gary Russell responds to Garcia: I've never seen him fight

By Chris Robinson

On Saturday night, inside of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, featherweight prospect/contender Gary Russell Jr. kept his unbeaten record intact, winning a dominant 10-round decision over Russia’s Vyacheslav Gusev to improve to 22-0 with 13 knockouts.

Russell’s speed and crisp punching easily carried the day for him, as the 24-year old Washington, D.C. native now eyes bigger bounty at 126 pounds.

Shortly after the fight, I reached out to recently-crowned WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia, who offered up his assessment of Russell’s performance.

“He looked good,” Garcia said of Russell. “Used his right a lot; jab and right hooks. [He] had speed. He did the adjustments that were needed after he hurt his hand. He did what he needed to do to win.”

Fighting someone with Russell’s natural gifts is far from an easy task but Garcia revealed how to beat the talented southpaw.

“You got to use what you have,” Garcia stated. “You can either apply a lot of pressure or time him to catch him in an exchange.”

Catching up with Russell roughly a few hours after his victory, I informed him of Garcia’s opinion of the best way to fight him.

Russell’s response seemed to be dismissive towards the new titleholder.

“I’ve never really watched him fight,” Russell claimed of Garcia. “I’m being so honest. I never really watched him fight.

“I heard about what happened with Salido, but we never really watched him fight,” Russell mentioned, bringing up Garcia’s technical-decision victory over Orlando Salido in January that saw their fight stopped after eight round following a broken nose from Mikey that was caused by an accidental head butt.

Even if Russell was more familiar with Garcia, the fact that the two fighters are aligned with promoters, Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank, who are feuding with one another seems to make the match a longshot at happening anytime soon.

A more realistic option for Russell could be the winner of the May 4th clash between WBC champion Daniel Ponce De Leon and Abner Mares, who is rising up in weight in an effort to collect his third title in as many divisions.

Russell again seems less than enthused about both participants but gives a clear edge to the champion.

“Whatever they want to do, they can do their thing,” Russell claimed. “Mares, he’s too small. Coming up in weight, too small.”

The Baby Bull, Juan Diaz is back                                                                                                                                                                               Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=63099#ixzz2MpZpfQqr

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Baby Bull Sports & Entertainment is proud to announce that on Saturday, April 13 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas’ beloved “Baby Bull,” former World Champion Juan Diaz, returns to the ring for the first time since 2010 to face Pipino Cuevas Jr. on FOX Sports Networks, FOX Deportes and FUEL TV.

A popular figure in his native Texas and around the globe, Houston’s Juan Diaz (35-4, 17 KO’s) made legions of fans not only for his all-action fighting style in the ring, but also for his class outside the ring, where he insisted on getting his college degree while still competing in the world’s toughest sport.

A former Unified Lightweight World Champion who held title belts for nearly four years, defeating Acelino Freitas, Michael Katsidis, Julio Diaz and Jose Miguel Cotto along the way, Diaz also went to battle with future Hall of Famer Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez. Diaz retired from the game in 2010 following his rematch with Marquez in order to focus on his education and entrepreneurial endeavors. Now ready to make another run at a world title, the 29-year-old can’t wait to hear the bell ring once again.

Pipino Cuevas Jr. (16-9, 14 KO’s) is the son of the longtime WBA Welterweight
World Champion and while he hasn’t been able to add a world title to the family’s trophy case yet, the 33-year-old from Mexico City has definitely inherited his father’s power, as evidenced by his 88% knockout percentage. The winner of two of his last three, Cuevas will look to make Diaz regret his decision to return to the ring on April 13.

According to Fat Dan, Schaefer reached out to Burns manager Alex Morrison, who declined the fight.

then Broner attacked Burns on twitter with; “Come fight me, bi***!” And all Burns could say in response was “You’ve cheered me up a bit today with that.”
