BARRERA ACCEPTS THE CHALLENGE TO FACE BETERBIEV

Edited Press Release: According to Groupe Yvon Michel Inc (GYM), the Montreal based promoter, light heavyweight terror Artur Beterbiev finally has a willing opponent. Cuba's Sullivan Barrera (18-1 with KOs) has answered the call to face Beterbiev (11-0 with 11 KOs) in an IBF eliminator after several other contenders ducked Beterbiev. With Barrera on board, GYM will negotiate with his promoter, Main Events until February 2nd, on an agreement for the fight date. If no agreement is reached, the IBF will call for purse bids. The winner of the Beterbiev-Barrera shock will become the IBF's mandatory contender for Andre Ward.  However, Ward has a contract to face former champion Segey Kovalev, and he also holds the WBA and WBO titles, so he has several options in addition to an IBF mandatory.  Barrera is coming off a strong performance, a December 16th win over previously unbeaten Vyacheslav Shabrankyy (17-0-0) via seventh-round stoppage.

LANARDO TYNER: "I'M GOING TO WELCOME CUSTIO CLAYTON TO THE BIG LEAGUES!"
By G. Leon

GL: Congrats on your victory, can you give us some thoughts on your performance? "Thank you. I thought it was ok. I felt sharp, I needed a little bit more rounds in, but the guy jumped on me so I had to get him out of there. He came out very aggressive and he didn't get me a chance to do anything, it's almost like they told him to come out there and fight me like that. I don't know why they did it, but it is what it is, thank God for the victory."

POST-FIGHT INTERVIEW: JAMES GORDON SMITH
By G. Leon

GL: Congrats on your victory, can you give us some thoughts on your performance? "I felt really strong and sharp. I felt good, it was one of the best training camps I've had so I didn't have to worry about holding back or throwing too many shots. I felt beautiful, I haven't felt that good in years. I didn't get hit nowhere near as much as I usually do, I was able to keep my hands up and get out of the way of the shots and come back with my own punches. It was an overall good fight for me."

POST-FIGHT INTERVIEW: DERRICK WEBSTER
By G. Leon

GL: Congrats on your victory, can you give us some thoughts on your performance? "I thought I did an incredible job. I didn't know much about the guy at all, all I knew was his record so I just had to go out there an adjust to whatever he tried to do and I believe I adjusted well. Nothing he did surprised me, they talked about the power he had, but it's like I said at my press conference, your power will be different versus different people. He did have some kind of pop with his punches, but with ten ounce gloves every punch can hurt you. He was pretty much what I thought he was, a straight forward fighter. I knew he wasn't going to be able to match my speed or footwork. I knew that once I got him frustrated, he would just start throwing looping punches, which he did. He was pretty much tailor made to what I believed him to be."

POST-FIGHT INTERVIEW: JUNIOR ANTHONY WRIGHT
By G. Leon

GL: Congrats on your victory, can you give us some thoughts on your performance? "It could have been a lot better, but due to the layoff I felt a little sluggish. I could have more head movement and more jab, I felt a lot stronger in there so I didn't care about getting hit almost. I got caught with shots I should have never gotten hit with, but I weathered the storm. But I need to step it up because I know I won't be able to get away with that with better heavyweights."

However, Halili caught Barber with an uppercut in round five that staggered him backwards into the ropes. He then pounded him relentlessly until the referee stopped the fight. source greg cohen promotions

ROMAN PUNISHES LOPEZ, CORNER STOPS FIGHT AFTER 9
By G. Leon

Danny Roman TKO9 Adam Lopez: 16-0-1 (8) 21-2-1 (7) Tonight's Shobox main event featured two hungry junior featherweights battling for the right to fight for a world title. Undefeated Adam Lopez and grizzled contender Danny Roman put it all on the line tonight, both fighters had their moments over the first three rounds, but Lopez was the aggressor. In the fourth Roman floored Lopez for second time in his career with a left hook he never saw coming, Lopez, 16-1-1 (8), beat the count on shaky legs and was knocked down for a second time moments later. Lopez showed a ton of heart and miraculously made it out of the round with a swollen left eye, but the fight had been taken out of him. To his credit, Lopez may have done enough to win the fifth, but the sixth and seventh belonged to Roman, 22-2-1 (8), who punished Lopez with powerful combinations to the head and body. Head trainer Ronnie Shields threatened to stop the fight if Lopez didn't show him something in the eighth round. Although Lopez didn't do much, Shields let him come out for the ninth round, but appropriately stopped the fight at its conclusion. Source: Shobox.

ELLIS CRUISES TO UD OVER BROOKER
By G. Leon

Ronald Ellis UD8 Chris Brooker: Just when you thought you've seen it all in boxing, tonight's co-main event was postponed a minute or so when there was a malfunction that prevented the microphone to elevate out of the ring. When the bell finally rang, both boxers came out swinging in this super middleweight clash. The bout had many sloppy moments but was entertaining. Brooker, 11-3 (5), did his best to make it a brawl, but Ellis, 14-0-1 (10), was having none of it, using his superior boxing ability to keep Brooker where he wanted while landed more than his fair share of power punches to cruise to the decision victory. Official scores were 77-75, 79-73, 79-73. Boxingtalk scored it 78-74. Source: Shobox
