TAPIA PULLED AT LAST MINUTE

 

Some fans may have noticed that Glen Tapia, who was scheduled to fight on the HBO Golovkin-Geale undercard, didn't fight. That's because his boxing license was abruptly denied on Friday, according to ESPN's Dan Rafael. That unfortunate circumstance forced his fight to be canceled altogether within minutes of his scheduled weigh-in. The reason behind the NYSAC denial had something to do with Tapia's blood test, though specifics haven't been released.

 

Carl Moretti, VP of Top Rank, had this to say about the denial:

 

50 CENT MOCKS MAYWEATHER

 

50 Cent Posts Pictures Of Nelly With Miss Jackson To Mock Floyd Mayweather

 

Once someone is on Fifty’s sh*t list, be prepared to be slandered
Yesterday, Rapper 50 Cent went on Instagram to slander former friend Floyd Mayweather.
He reposted two pictures from Nelly’s Instagram of Nelly himself with Mayweather’s former girlfriend Miss Jackson.
The first picture 50 Cent posted, he wrote, “Nelly put this up @floydmayweather DAMN da n**ga really took your lady champ. It’s @missjackson birthday. Smh.”
The second picture 50 Cent posted was of Miss Jackson, and the caption read, “CHAMP I aint gonna lie this mother**ker bad. You need to start operation GET THE B**CH BACK. Right now!!!”
However, this was not Fifty’s first time mocking Mayweather. He had once took to Instagram and posted a video of telling Mayweather to leave T.I’s wife Tiny alone.
50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather have had a long history of animosity against each other ever since their storied boxing companionship according to Hip Hop DX.
Earlier this year, Floyd Mayweather broke up with Miss Jackson due to her having an abortion, although many believed Nelly had something to do with it.

 

HAERTEL TO MAKE PRO DEBUT

German amateur star Stefan Haertel will make his professional debut on August 16. The 26 year-old, who signed a long-term contract with Team Sauerland in May, will face Oleg Fedotovs (18-14, 12 KOs) at the Erfurt Exhibition Hall in Thuringia, Germany.
‘’After many successful years as an amateur I am looking forward to this new challenge,’’ said the Berlin-based Haertel. ‘’It has been six months since my last competitive fight and I can’t wait to get back into the ring, shake of the rust and show everyone what I am capable of.’’
‘’When I step into the ring I come to win, no matter who is put in front of me,’’ said Haertel ‘’My goal is to become world champion and to do that I must beat everyone starting with Fedotovs.’’
In the evening’s main event IBF World Cruiserweight Champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez defends his title against former World Champion Firat Arslan. Tickets are available via www.eventim.de

GGG A HUGE SUCCESS AT THE GARDEN

 

Gennady Golovkin was a hit in his first appearance at Madison Square Garden (although he has fought twice in the Theater at MSG).
If Golovkin has his way, he will get another attempt at fighting in the big arena against another Madison Square Garden regular — Miguel Cotto.
Golovkin easily retained his WBA middleweight championship Saturday night, stopping Daniel Geale at 2:47 of the third round in front of 8,572 fans.
"It's the biggest name that will get in the ring with him," said Tom Loeffler of K2 promotions. "That's our target. Miguel had a victory. He and Gennady Golovkin would be the biggest fight in the Garden and it's a unification fight."
"I want to fight him next and prove to the world without a doubt that I'm the best middleweight in the world," Golovkin said about Cotto, who has fought nine times at Madison Square Garden "That is very important to me."

GEALE SALUTES GGG

 

Former two-time middleweight champion Daniel Geale (30-3, 13 KOs) gave it his all in a losing effort against fearsome WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) on Saturday night inside New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden Arena. “I’m not ashamed to say I lost to Golovkin,” said Geale. “He’s one of the best fighters in boxing and certainly the biggest puncher in the sport. I did my best to come out strong but he was the better man tonight. Want to thank my promoters Gary Shaw and Garrie Francisco for everything they’ve done for me and my family. I’m going to take a few weeks off and evaluate my future.”
Promoter Gary Shaw added, “I have nothing but great respect for Daniel Geale who did his best tonight. He fought hard against a great fighter who I believe is a pound for pound champion in Golovkin.”

 

Las emocionantes aventuras de GGG en el Medison Square Garden
Por Jaime Estrada

Las cuerdas de colores del Medison Square Garden llevaban las siglas GGG en mención alias del monarca mediano Gennady Golovkin residente de Alemania y de origen Kazakhstan, quien en lo amateur ganó 345 peleas con sólo 5 derrotas y capturó la medalla de plata en olimpiadas y a sus 32 abriles, está dando pasos agigantados en lo profesional, dominando la categoría de ton a son y ganándose con aplomo el calificativo de artista del cloroformo, por sus 27 nocauts en 30 victorias y para lo que se ve, aun hay mas por venir.

Historia Completa

 

MONTIEL DESTROYS RIOS

Former three-division world champion Fernando “KOchulito” Montiel (51-4-2, 39 KOs) needed just 96 seconds to annihilate Jesus “Chito” Rios (30-5-1, 24 KOs) on Saturdyy night at the Auditorio Municipal in Villaflores, Chiapas, Mexico. It was a liver shot that put Rios down for the count. Montiel is looking to win a fourth world title in the featherweight division.

BENAVIDEZ HAS SHORT NIGHT

 

Welterweight Jose Benavidez (21-0, 15 KOs), fighting for the first time at home since 2011, made quick work of Henry Auraad (16-9-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, Arizona. Benavides dropped Auraad twice in the first round before the bout was halted after 1:50. Benavides won the NABF Youth title.
*****
Two-time Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez (13-0, 11 KOs) scored a one-sided eight round unanimous decision over veteran Juan Ruiz (23-15, 7 KOs) in a featherweight contest. Valdez pressed the action against Ruiz, scoring a 80-71 shutout on all cards. The survival-minded Ruiz, who was deducted a point in the eighth round, has never been stopped. He dropped his ninth straight fight.
*****
Unbeaten light heavyweight Trevor McCumby (16-0, 12 KOs) was impressive in winning a six round unanimous decision over Michael Gbenga (15-16, 15 KOs). McCumby dropped Gbenga in round five on the way to a 60-53, 60-53, 60-53 sweep on the scorecards.
