WIN A TRIP TO THE FINALS

 

The 2015 Boxcino Bracket Challenge

 

The Contest:  Attention fans!  Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions, Inc. is pleased to announce “The 2015 Boxcino Brackets Challenge.”


The Rules:

 

COME OUT AND SEE THE STARS

 

Starry, starry day...and night, on February 5th in Culiacan, Sinaloa, when the JC Chavez statue ceremony will be graced by Boxing's regal rappers.
The who's who lineup of friends, who are greats in their own right, include: Mexican Soccer Coach, Miguel 'Piojo' Herrera, promoter Don King, former champions Oscar de la Hoya, Juan Manuel Marquez, Erik Morales, Ricardo Lopez, Carlos Zárate, Jesse James Leija, Juan LaPorte Marco Antonio Barrera, Humberto 'Chiquita' Gonzalez and legendary referee Richard Steele.
World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman who's also attending, says it's going to be absolutely unique and is more than a well deserved homage to the “Great Mexican Champion."
 

GOLDEN BOY SIGNS MARCELINO LOPEZ

 

Former WBC Latino Lightweight Champion, Marcelino "Nino" Lopez has signed a promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions. The 28-year-old from Arribenos, Buenos Aires, Argentina has already has a strong career as a professional boxer in South American, winning and defending several titles and maintaining a near perfect record of 31-1-1 (15 KOs).
"Golden Boy Promotions continues to strengthen its roster of fighters and adding Marcelino Lopez to the team confirms the great plans we have to find the best talent to put on the best fights for the fans," said Oscar De La Hoya, President and Founder of Golden Boy Promotions.
"I am glad to be working with Golden Boy Promotions, I feel that this is a great opportunity for me to be introduced to a larger boxing audience," said Lopez. "I am excited to see what 2015 will bring being part of a world recognized promotional company."
"I am happy to continue working with Golden Boy Promotions," said Mario Arano, Lopez's manager. "They are family and have always chosen the best fights for their fighters. They have done a great job with Lucas Matthysse and trust that they will do an excellent job bringing international acclaim and notoriety to Marcelino Lopez."

 

NO OFFICIAL WORD YET

 

No word yet for World Boxing Council welterweight and super welterweight Champion, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, who've been chilling out.
After accidently meeting at a Miami Heat basketball game where they warmed to each other and exchanged cell phone numbers, they developed the banter and chat into a more detailed two hour discussion in Manny's hotel suite.
Manny's Advisor Michael Koncz claims that Showtime and HBO have reached an agreement to broadcast the fight simultaneously.
Floyd has a contract with Showtime for two more fights. Meanwhile Pacquiao is with HBO. So the aim is for both to combine to broadcast the megafight which will pulverize all PPV records.
Koncz also stressed another agreement involves avoiding a long tour, and that there won't be any ‘All Access’ or ‘24/7’ episodes.
The WBC's new Public Relations Consultant Bill Caplan says that crunching the numbers makes him increasingly more optimistic about the odds of it happening. As he says: "My personal odds keep changing. one week it's fifty, fifty. The next it's thirty/seventy it won't. This week my odds are sixty/forty that it's going to happen.
"Yes I think it's going to happen because A- there has been so much demand for it. And B- They will cut up more money than has ever been in a sporting event. I'm talking about participants, NOT the NFL owners. They are going to take part in the biggest purses that have ever been in any sporting event and I think that's fortunate.
"Plus everywhere Mayweather goes he gets: "So when are you going to fight Pacquiao? And I really think he's getting sick of hearing it!"

 

JUAREZ ANNOUNCES HIS RETIREMENT


On Monday Robinson Castellanos defeated Rocky, snatching the WBC Silver featherweight championship, following a blazing real dig deep sunset thriller, in San Antonio, Texas.
After the Judges' decision, Texan star Rocky announced his retirement.
Hand in glove, it's been a great career of 30 victories, with 21 KO's , 11 looses and 1 draw. Rocky faced top flight featherweights and super featherweights, always putting up a great show against the likes of: Marco Antonio Barrera, Juan Manuel Marquez, Guty Espadas Jr., Humberto Soto, Rodrigo Barrios, Chris John and Jorge Linares!
Rocky will always be remembered for being a disciplined, deeply determined lion hearted fighter

 

SOLIS CANNOT WAIT TO GET "THE TIGER"

 

Cuban heavyweight fighter, Odlanier Solis (20-2-0, 13 KO's) has his eye on the "Tiger!"
Odlanier's currently training up a storm at the Jorge Rubio's gym in Miami for his rematch bout against American Tony "Tiger" Thompson, with the WBC Americas Continental crown up for grabs.
Not much delight when Solis lost against Thompson last March 22nd, 2014 in Turkey.
The rematch will take place this March 27th, but the Cuban's already knuckling down to a routine designed to make a beeline for the feline!
“The first fight was close. But this time I won't allow Thompson to finish,” Solis tersely vowed!
“Solís is focused on climbing back to the highest level

 

WHO'S THE TOP DOG?

 

Kell Brook, Kid Galahad and Adam Etches vying to be Yorkshire's top dog
by Niall Hickman
dailyexpress.uk

 

STEEL CITY boxing is delivering one knockout after another as Kell Brook, Kid Galahad and Adam Etches vie to be top dog in south Yorkshire.
“Galahad is probably the closest to a typical Brendan Ingle fighter, that fluid style which was the hallmark of the likes of Naseem Hamed and Herol Graham.
“With more exposure he would already be right up there with Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton.

Silence isn't golden, as Oscar de La Hoya and his promotional team negotiate for World Boxing Council super bantamweight champion, Leo Santa Cruz, and the WBA Cuban champion, Guillermo "El Chacal" Rigondeaux to clash in a rip roaring contest.
“It's good to know that Santa Cruz's promoter had declared that this fight MUST happen. I want to have the WBC belt on my shelf. I also want to prove that I'm the best in the super bantamweight division,” Rigondeaux insisted.
Guillermo's manager suggests that Golden Boy Promotions has actually been hunting them down. The date for fate is likely to fall in either May or June
