WBO Junior Lightweight Champion Roman "Rocky" Martinez (29-2-2, 17 KOs) and WBO/IBF featherweight world-ranked Jonathan "Polvo" Oquendo (25-4, 16 KOs)worked out for the press in Puerto Rico on  Monday, Aug, 31 in advance of their SHOWTIME PPV® fights against former world champions Orlando "Siri" Salido (42-13-2, 29 KOs) and Jhonny Gonzalez (58-9, 49 KOs), respectively. The event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 12 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas highlighted by HIGH STAKES: Floyd Mayweather vs. Andre Berto.

ANDY LEE TITLE FIGHT POSTPONED AGAIN

Andy Lee's WBO world middleweight title defense against Billy Joe Saunders has been postponed for a second time. The fight had already been rescheduled from September 19 in Limerick to October 10 in Manchester - but is now off again after Saunders was injured in training. Lee (34-2-1-KO24) picked up a virus last month that disrupted his preparation but this time a cut sustained in sparring by the unbeaten challenger Saunders (22-0-KO12) is the reason for the delay. Promoter Frank Warren said: "Unfortunately Billy Joe Saunders suffered a cut in training and his fight against Andy Lee will be postponed until late November and we'll be making an announcement about it later. "The show will still be going ahead and it's a great show with two world title fights and we are working on another world title fight to go on the bill." Still on the card at the Manchester Arena local boy Terry Flanagan (28-0-KO11) makes the first defence of the WBO world lightweight title against America's Diego Magdaleno (28-1-KO12) and Liam Smith (20-0-1-KO10) faces John Thompson (17-1-KO6) for the vacant WBO world light-middleweight belt.

Former heavyweight champion of the world Vitali Klitschko has been confirmed to attend the historic gathering of former heavyweight champions this weekend. Since retiring from boxing, Vitali has been very busy working full time in politics in his native Ukraine. We’re told Klitschko wanted to be a part of this event and will take time out from his job as Mayor of Kiev to attend.

The card will be a celebration of heavyweight boxing with more than 20 former world heavyweight champions confirmed to attend, including Vitali’s younger brother and reigning WBA, IBF and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Roy Jones Jr., Larry Holmes, Michael Moorer, Riddick Bowe, Ray Mercer, Hasim Rahman, Tony Tucker, Tony Tubbs, James “Bonecrusher” Smith, Michael Bentt, Lamon Brewster, Chris Byrd, John Ruiz, Mike Weaver, Tim Witherspoon, Pinklon Thomas, Leon Spinks, Michael Spinks and Bruce Seldon.

SEPTEMBER THE START OF THE BOXING SEASON

by Steve Bunce, ESPN.uk

There was a time when September was the start of the boxing season, a month when the summer break ended and fans could once again look forward to watching fights on TV or attending a show.
In 2015, the fights went all the way through the long months of summer and every weekend somebody was busting somebody up in a ring in either Los Angeles, Marbella or the Crimea.
Anyway, this weekend the domestic boxing starts for real with Josh Warrington leading 10,000 from the streets of Leeds to the First Direct Arena in the centre of the city. In the opposite corner will be Australian fighter Joel Brunker, the belt will be the Commonwealth featherweight title and the real prize will be a higher ranking. It's a nice start.
The next day in Texas, Jamie McDonnell, from Doncaster, defends his WBA bantamweight title against Tomoki Kameda in a rematch of a brutal slugfest back in May. In the first fight, Kameda, who entered the ring unbeaten in 31, dropped McDonnell heavily in round three but it was not enough and McDonnell won a tight, tight decision

BATTLE OF THE BADGES HEATS UP
AGUA CALIENTE

 

by Michele Chong

 

There was plenty of fire in the ring at Saturday's 2015 Battle of the Badges (BOTB) held at Agua Caliente Casino, Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
This charity fight night pits policemen, firemen, corrections officers, EMS, Armed Forces members and more in amateur boxing bouts benefiting the nonprofit organization. These bouts are always spirited ones (especially when braggin' rights are involved) and this BOTB clash is always one of my favorites to attend.
And the weekend event lived up to all expectations.

Santa Cruz defeats Mares in Fight of the Year.

Santa Cruz and Mares goes beyond expectations,
delivers an instant classic.

Leo Santa Cruz just entertained fans in what was easily, the performance of his short career against Abner Mares.  Cruz (31-0-1, 17 KO's) took over the fight after the 3rd round and never looked back.  Mares (29-2-1, 15 KO's) started off fast but appeared to lose steam in the middle rounds.  Cruz for his part, continued to adjust and find different ways to attack Mares throughout the fight.  Cruz, having a huge contingence in the crowd, fed off the chants of his name throughout the fight.

MOSLEY STOPS MAYORGA

 

In a rematch that nobody was asking for and almost seven years after stopping Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga with one second left in the twelfth round of their first fight, “Sugar” Shane Mosley capped an entertaining toe to toe battle by stopping Mayorga again, this time with one second left in round six with a controversial body shot that put Mayorga down for a full ten count on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Mayorga claimed the blow was low but the referee called it fair.
