  Mikaela Laurén: "This Time
Klara Won’t Get Back Up"
 
Mikaela Laurén (27-3, 12 KOs) says she will send Swedish rival Klara Svensson (16-1, 5 KOs) to sleep when the female fighters meet for the interim WBC World Welterweight title on September 10 at the Hovet in Stockholm.

Laurén believes Svensson lacks punch resistance, citing her 2015 World title defeat to WBC Light Welterweight Champion Erica Farias, in which the 28 year-old suffered a heavy knockdown in the fifth-round, as evidence.

  Mayfield Wants Eyubov Rematch  
Having had a week to consider his controversial decision loss to Kazakhstan's Bakhtiyar Eyubov (11-0, 10 KOs), San Francisco welterweight Karim Mayfield says he's not happy.

Fighting in the opening fight on ShoBox: The New Generation® last Friday, August 19, at Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, New York, Mayfield (19-4-1, 11 KOs) appeared to outpunch and outwork his unbeaten foe, especially in the last four rounds. Despite having the statistical advantage - and winning in the eyes of the Showtime commentators, most of the ringside media, the fans in attendance and a worldwide outcry - Mayfield found himself on the wrong side of a 10-round split decision (95-94 twice for Eyubov and 95-94 for Mayfield) at the end of their exciting battle.

Gassiev World Title Fight Announcement
 
Team Shumenov believes it is worth reviewing recent history enlight of the recent announcement that WBA Super/IBF cruiserweight world champion Denis Lebedev will defend against Murat Gassiev in late November or early December in Russia: A condition for allowing Lebedev to fight IBF cruiserweight champion Victor Emilio Ramirez on May 21, 2016 was that Lebedev had to fight WBA cruiserweight world champion Beibut Shumenov within 120 days. (Lebedev hasn't made a mandatory defense since April 10, 2015.) Shumenov has done everything to make that fight, while Lebedev has done nothing but run from his mandatory title fight. When it first became obvious in June that Lebedev was trying to avoid his mandated WBA title fight, Shumenov repeatedly requested that the WBA order a purse bid.

Over the last couple of years I have been harassed by one of my peers, German Villasenor, to go cover the fights in Tijuana. His reasoning was that TJ was only a stones throw away from our Los Angeles home and covering down south of the border is a lot more fun than it sounds. I was assured that "El Chapo" nor his clan would not bother me in the least. I did not have much interest in all honesty. But when rumors of a comeback by Antonio Margarito began to be heard I stated that if Tony fought in TJ that I would be all in.

The Word On Ward
 
By William Trillo
If you thought you were going to come here today and read my latest piece dragging Andre Ward through the mud you would be mistaken. In a world full of unexpected pleasures I was pleasantly surprised to read the brutally honest report sent to us from Andrew LaPachet who covered the Oakland fight for us live from ringside. Not only is LaPachet a proud Northern California, but in his own words he has covered Ward since his amateur days and hates what he is seeing from Ward right now. To read what this Northern California boxing writer has to say is better than anything I would have come up with, because as you know, I am not Ward's biggest fan. I would love to go on and eviscerate S.O.G right now but you would all deem me a hater.

  Ward Proves Nothing With Shutout Win Over Brand  
By Andrew LaPachet - FightNetRadio.com

Oracle Arena, Oakland Ca - Going into last night’s fight the expectations were that the undefeated former undisputed super middleweight champion Andre Ward (30-0, 15 KO’s) would make easy work of journeyman Alexander Brand (25-2, 19 KO’s). Brand, a super middleweight moving up was listed at 5’10 1/2”, but looked much smaller than his 6’0” opponent. Brand also had not been that active as of late, having only 4 fights in 3 years. He is short, heavy and slow, the perfect opponent for a Pound for Pound fighter like Ward. His opportunity to look invincible for his loyal hometown crowd of 8,653 one last time before the plane flies to Las Vegas for what will be the biggest fight of the 2016. All Ward had to do was show up and perform. Click Here For Full Report

  Frampton Defies The Odds, Gets Majority Decision Win Over Santa Cruz For WBA Title; Rematch Looms  
Carl Frampton (now 23-0, 14 KO's) won the WBA Featherweight Title from previously undefeated Leo Santa Cruz with a 12-Round Majority Decision. Most experts didn't give Frampton much of a shot, but Frampton came out of his corner and proved them wrong. Frampton was most often first and last to land, constantly moving his head, giving Santa Cruz very little opportunities. In round 2, Frampton staggered Santa Cruz with a big left hook to set the pace for himself. Frampton continued to control the beginning of the fight, but in round 6 Santa Cruz turned the tides a bit. Santa Cruz started landing his right hands, taking round 7 as well. Frampton noticed this and fought back even harder than before, regaining his momentum. Frampton would appear to win the majority of the remainder of the fight, with two well fought final rounds by both men. In the end it appeared Frampton was the clear victor, but after the first score read 114-114, many feared another badly scored fight was incoming. Thankfully the next two scores of 116-112 and 117-111 were read and Frampton was announced the winner. Santa Cruz (now 32-1-1, 18 KO's) seemed in disbelief, blaming the crowds constant cheering for Frampton being the reason he lost, showing a bit of poor sportsmanship. Both expressed interest in a rematch.

Sugar Hill: "Williams Is The Most Dangerous Puncher Adonis Faced So Far, But My Fighter Will Win By KO"
 
By Daniel Cloutier
QUÉBEC CIY, Canada - The Adonis Stevenson’s trainer, Sugar Hill, from the Kronk Gym in Detroit, is really impressed by the technique improvements realized by his fighter. “Few year ago, Adonis was more a puncher than a boxer, but now, he is a very complete fighter, said Hill Tuesday at the hotel Château Bonne Entente in Québec City. Adonis still a destructive puncher and he is fighting now very well technically and strategically. Adonis is working like hell in the gym to improve constantly his technique. He showed the results in his last fights, I guess you agree with me. His last opponents would all tell you that Adonis is difficult to hit solidly now.” Click Here For Full Report
