 MAYWEATHER-PACQUIAO TO TAKE A PLACE IN WELTERWEIGHT HISTORY

Press Release: It has often been said that “as the heavyweight division goes, so goes boxing,” but that has not always been the case and, in fact, might not even be valid when viewed from a comprehensive perspective dating back to the late 19th century. In Boxing, German author Bertram Job’s epic, 420-page coffee-table dissertation on all aspects of the sweet science, he writes that, “Elegance is the trademark of the slim and nimble stars in the under 147-pound weight class that has attracted insiders and admirers of beauty like no other.” And so it is with what will be another benchmark entry in the rich history of the division when, on May 2nd at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, live on pay-per-view,  welterweight champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) takes on fellow titlist Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) in a unification showdown that will be the richest in the sport’s history, and which has drawn comparisons to some of the premier matchups in a weight class imprinted with that elegant trademark to which Job referred.

DOMINICAN TITLIST REWARDED WITH FIGHT IN GERMANY

Press Release: 
Despite a modest 13-20 record, Diana Garcia of the Dominican Republic is a tough foe, as she proved in her most recent bout when she won the Dominican female super featherweight title, dominating and eventually stopping the highly favored Marisol Reyes in ten rounds. Her efforts are being rewarded with a trip to Germany where she will face
 Melanie Zwecker on Saturday April 25th at the Pfinzhalle in Dettenheim, Germany. The bout will be a ten-round featherweight contest.

 DEAN ON THE SCENE: THIS WEEK'S BOXING MEMO
By Ben Dean

Terence Crawford puts junior welters on notice: Terence Crawford looked sensational in stopping once-defeated Thomas Dulorme, in his 140-pound debut, in Arlington, Texas this weekend. Crawford got off to a very patient (if not slow) start. Dulorme had some solid rounds through the first five just by being more active. But Crawford, the consummate boxer was apparently just taking inventory and warming up. Crawfird was busy in a different way: he was scanning the ring and analyzing what Dulorme could offer him. Crawford's analysis culminated in the sixth round where he exploded with a huge right hand. He went in for the kill but in a professionally responsible manner. He never got wild...he just unleashed a very clinical execution (much the way Bernard Hopkins used to). He was methodical, varied his punch sequences nicely, and never loaded up.

By Ben Dean

Lucas Matthysse W12 Ruslan Provodnikov... In Verona New York, Lucas Matthysse prevailed by majority decision over Ruslan Provodnikov in a twelve-round junior welterweight slugfest.

HBO's Harold Lederman scored it a draw, but Punchstats showed Matthysse outlanding Providnikov by a wide margin, 327-201. source: hbo

By Scott Shaffer

Andrzej Fonfara TKO9 Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. ... Andrzej Fonfara scored a career-best win in Carson, California, stopping Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. at the end of nine mostly one-sided rounds. Fonfara floored Chavez in the ninth round, and the bout was stopped prior to the beginning of the tenth. It appeared that Chavez himself asked for the fight to be stopped. Chavez, a former middleweight titlist known for his dislike of serious training, had blown up to light heavyweight for this fight. Fonfara, best known for a competitive loss to world light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson, improves to 27-3. Chavez (48-2-1) suffered his first career knockdown and first stoppage loss. He will have no choice but to return in the super middleweight division in order to remain marketable, if not viable. source: showtime
