JASON “EL CANITO” SOSA TO CLASH WITH ROBINSON “ROBIN HOOD” CASTELLANOS ON TELEVISED UNDERCARD OF KOVALEV VS. SHABRANSKYY AT THE THEATER AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IN NEW YORK CITY

 

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25 TELEVISED LIVE ON HBO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING®

 

PORTION OF TICKET PROCEEDS TO BE DONATED TO HURRICANE AND EARTHQUAKE RELIEF EFFORTS

 

 

NEW YORK CITY (Oct. 19, 2017) Two of the most experienced fighters in the stacked 130-pound division will continue the heated Puerto Rico vs. Mexico rivalry when Jason “El Canito” Sosa (20-2-4, 14 KOs) takes on Robinson “Robin Hood” Castellanos (24-13, 14 KOs) in a 10-round super featherweight fight at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on the televised undercard for Kovalev vs. Shabrankskyy. The event takes place Saturday, Nov. 25 and will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

 

Although the competition between Puerto Rico and Mexico runs deep in the ring, Latinos and Hispanics come together and support each other in times of need. In light of the natural disasters affecting Mexico and the Caribbean, a portion of the proceeds of the ticket sales form this event will be donated to relief efforts for Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the earthquake in Mexico City when ticket buyers use the code LATINOSUNIDOS to purchase their tickets through Ticketmaster.

 

“With the terrible natural disasters that have impacted Puerto Rico and Mexico recently, it was incredibly important to us that we find opportunities in boxing to give back to those affected,” said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “Though Puerto Rico and Mexico are rivals when it comes to boxing we stand together united to help these communities recover and rebuild their lives.”

 

The 29-year-old Sosa, of Camden, NJ and of Puerto Rican descent, is the former WBA World Super Featherweight Champion. He earned his title by handing Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna his first loss as a pro with an 11th-round knockout in Beijing, China in June 2016. Sosa successfully defended his title with a 12-round decision win over Stephen Smith in Monte Carlo in November 2016 before returning several months later in a tough fight against Vasyl “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko in April 2017. Sosa is also known for fighting to an impressive majority draw against former WBA Super World Featherweight Champion Nicholas “Axe Man” Walters and for stopping former world title challenger Jerry “The Corpus Christi Kid” Belmontes in only one round. Sosa’s aggressive style should produce fireworks against Castellanos.

 

“Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico,” said Sosa. “I have been living there for the last few months and I opened a business there. Now to see the destruction and devastation that my people are going through, it breaks my heart. It was very difficult for me to leave and begin my training camp back in New Jersey to get ready for the fight against Castellanos. This fight is important for many reasons. It is the beginning of the road to becoming champion again and it is my way of giving Puerto Rico a reason to smile and be proud. They are my biggest supporters and that little island shows me so much love.  I can’t do much but I can show them that this win is for them. I want to thank Castellanos and HBO for this opportunity.” Continue reading

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Super Channel to air Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Miguel Marriaga Saturday night in Canada

EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (July 31, 2017) – Super Channel subscribers in Canada will have the opportunity to watch superstar Vasyl Lomachenko, arguably the No. 1 pound-for-pound professional boxer in the world today, as the Ukrainian defends his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Association Junior Lightweight World Championship for the second time, this Saturday night (August 5), starting at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, live from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KOs) will be challenged by two-time world title challenger, dangerous Colombian knockout artist Miguel “The Scorpian” Marriaga (25-2, 21 KOs), the WBO No. 10-ranked contender, in the 12-round main event.

Three exciting fights on the stacked “Lomachenko vs, Marriaga” card, promoted by Top Rank, will air exclusively in Canada on Super Channel.

Super Channel has recently aired major boxing events live like Brook vs. Spence Jr., Pacquiao-Horn, and Eubank, Jr. vs. Abraham.

“we are all ecstatic to be bringing this exciting bout featuring one of the world’s best boxers, Vasyl Lomachenko, to our viewers and to be presenting another top-notch card from legendary promoter, Top Rank’s Bob Arum, to Canadian fight fans,” said Troy Wassill. Director of Programming, Domestic Distributors & Sports for Super Channel.

Lomachenko is regarded by many as the greatest amateur boxer of his time and arguably all-time having captured two Olympic gold medals (2008 & 2012) and three World Championships, reportedly losing only once in 396 amateur bouts.

Eight (7-1) of his nine fights during his three-year pro career have been in world title fights, including world title winning performances in two different weight classes, WBO featherweight and junior lightweight. Lomachenko has defeated world champions Gary Russell, Jr., Roman Martinez and Nicholas Walters.

Marriaga, who is moving up to junior lightweight to challenge Lomachenko, is a battled-tested challenger with good power and a strong amateur background.

In the 12-round co-feature, NABO & NABF lightweight champion “Sugar” Raymundo Beltran (33-7-1, 21 KOs) defends his titles against former two-time Interim World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Featherweight World Champion Bryan Vasquez (36-2, 19 KOs).

Mexico-native Beltran, fighting out of Phoenix (AZ), is a two-time world title challenger who is knocking on the door for another world title shot. Beltran is ranked No. 2 in the world by the WBO, World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing Federation (IBF), as well as No. 6 by the WBA.

Vasquez, fighting out of Costa Rico, is rated the No. 1 lightweight contender in the world by the WBA

In the eight-round Super Channel opener, 2012 Olympic silver medalist Esquiva Falcao (17-0, 12 KOs), the undefeated Brazilian middleweight, steps up in terms of class opposition to face Ivan “Terrible” Montero (20-2, 8 KOs), of Mexico.

To see the “Lomachenko vs. Marriaga” live, as well as more exciting boxing to come, fight fans in Canada can contact their local cable provider to subscribe to Super Channel and all that it offers, including premium series, movies and much more, for as low as $9.95 per month.

Mikey Garcia outclasses Adrien Broner in dominant win; Charlo, Miller, Warren, Taylor also victorious! by Robert Uzzell

Story by:  Robert Uzzell

IMG_5365

Ed Diller/Dibella Entertainment

BROOKLYN, NY – If you didn’t know who Mikey Garcia was before Saturday, your excuse could’ve been he was nowhere to be found from February 2014 to June 2016. Garcia had legal troubles with his former promoter and sat out during that two-and-a-half-year period.  On the other hand, you could mention that you didn’t follow weight classes below junior welterweight.

However, even the most casual fan identifies with the brash, bold Adrien Broner. If you followed AB on Saturday night, you have no more excuses to lack knowledge of Garcia.

Garcia (37-0, 30 KOs) put on a clinic as he stepped up to 140 pounds and had an easy time defeating Broner by unanimous decision.  Scores were 117-111 (Eric Marlinski), and 116-112 twice (Steve Weisfeld and Don Ackerman).  TheFightJournal.com scored it 118-110.  I found it difficult to give Broner more than three rounds and wonder how Weisfeld and Ackerman gave AB four rounds on their cards.  Maybe it was my seat in the media area.

The smaller Garcia controlled the fight almost from the start as he came forward and forced Broner (33-3, 24 KOs) on his back foot. In the case of Adrien Broner, this usually spells doom.  Each round, the pattern of Mikey Garcia landing and Broner shaking his head to indicate he wasn’t hurt repeated itself.  Adrien Broner, a good defensive fighter, once again refused to punch enough to win a fight.  It has to be puzzling to fans and media why he can’t pull the trigger.  However, on Saturday night I think the reason was the fear of what Garcia had waiting in return.

Despite the two and a half year absence, and only two fights in almost four years, Mikey put the pound-4-pound world on notice. Had Mikey not been off, he most likely would be in boxing’s top five.  I have to be honest.  I’m not so sure he shouldn’t be there now.

Garcia seemed to be one, sometimes two steps ahead of Broner from the third round on, as he began to get into his rhythm.

To understand how dominant Garcia was in this fight, just look at the amount of punches each guy threw:

Punches Landed / Thrown – TOTAL

Punches.png

Garcia threw 783 punches to 400 by AB.  He also landed 244 to only 125 by AB.  In other words, he threw 383 more and landed 119 more, yet equaled Broner in percentage.

In the round by round breakdown, Garcia threw 91 punches in the tenth to Broner’s 42.  In round 11, Garcia threw 88 punches to Broner’s 29.  In the final round, Garcia threw an incredible 115 punches to only 44 for Broner.

I know these are just punches thrown, but guess what folks?  Some of those punches landed too.

How Broner won any of these rounds on the judge’s cards is a mystery.

Punches Landed/Thrown – PER ROUND

In the end, I guess it doesn’t matter as Mikey Garcia was introduced to the world.  Some quotes from each fighter:

MIKEY GARCIA

“This is definitely one of my best performances ever. I think I controlled the fight in the early rounds and I kept the activity up. [Broner] is a great fighter who has great skills. I was the superior fighter tonight.

“It was the timing, I’ve always said I have very good timing. It is underestimated when you are outside the ring but once you get inside the ring with me, I’m a step ahead.”

“We trained for 10 weeks, we had a great training camp and great sparring. We knew it was going to be a tough fight so we had to be in great shape.”

“It was part of the strategy to be a little busier than the fights I have previously had.”

“Anybody that wants to come join us on SHOWTIME, give us a call, we are ready for anybody.”

“Maybe I’ll go down to 135, stay at 140 or go up to 147.”

ADRIEN BRONER

“Thanks to everyone who came to see me lose and everyone who came to see me win.”

“I want to congratulate Mikey and his team.”

“It was a good fight. At the end of the day, I come to fight, I come to win and I put my heart on the line”

“It was Tom & Jerry, I had to catch the mouse.”

“At the end of the day I’m still AB, I’m still about billions, I’m still the “can man,” if he wants to rematch in California, we can do it.”

“At the end of the day I’m still a four-time world champion at four different weight classes and I’ll still be in the history books.”

ROBERT GARCIA

“We knew Mikey would have to fight smart. He’s a tough guy who finishes very strong. We had to fight smart for the whole 12 rounds.”

MIKE STAFFORD

“Adrien followed Mikey around just a little bit too much. Mikey did really well. Adrien should have gone to the body earlier.”

I think Broner is as delusional as his trainer.  For Stafford to suggest Adrien followed Mikey around much, let alone at all is a joke.  For Broner to use the Tom and Jerry reference, and then follow it up with his historical comments pretty much let’s us know his sense of entitlement is intact.

Garcia has many places he can go.  He can drop back to 135 against a Vasyl Lomachenko or a Jorge Linares or even Broner’s pal Robert Easter Jr.

For Broner, it’s much more complicated.  He was always carefully matched, but now extra caution needs to be taken.  I don’t think he can beat a Thurman, a Spence Jr, or even a Danny Garcia.

I don’t think his chances are good against Terence Crawford.  I’m not sure he can even beat a Rances Barthelemy or a Felix Diaz Jr.  Sergey Lipinets needs to step up, but he has a potential title shot.  Remember when back in the day we wanted Broner to go to the UK to face Ricky Burns?  Even though we thought Broner could take him in the lighter weight class, does today’s shopworn Burns push Broner to the limit?

It’ll be interesting to see.

**********************************

In the co-feature, Jermall Charlo, (26-0, 20 KOs) won his middleweight debut in dominant fashion over Jorge Sebastian Heiland (29-5-2, 16 KOs).  Heiland was clearly hurt from the start and the mercy stoppage came by TKO at 2:13 of the fourth round.

Charlo looked strong and ready for the next challenge at 160, despite the Vernon Forrest, Ray Leonard, and Tommy Hearns comments.  I’d recommend a couple more fights at 160 before a potential Triple G showdown.

JERMALL CHARLO: 

“Sometimes the injury can be a decoy, you never want to just jump in and think it’s part of his game plan.  My coach told me to stay behind my jab like I did- continue to work and it’s going to come.
“I’m ready, bring on the biggest names at 160… I’m the real Tommy Hearns… I feel like it’s my turn and I’m going to go get it.”
