 NEW CHAMPION ALERT: JAVIER MENDOZA

Javier Mendoza W12 Ramon Garcia Hirales... The IBF has a new 108-pound champion as Javier Mendoza defeated Ramon Garcia Hirales for the vacant title over the weekend in an all-Mexican battle held in Tijuana. The title was vacant since the prior champion, Jon Riel Casimiero, failed to make weight back in May. Against Mendoza, Hirales was knocked down twice and lost a point for low blows. Official scores were 115-110 (twice) and 116-109 for Mendoza. The new champion, who turned pro at age 16 and is now 23, has a record of 22-2-1. Hirales holds a 2010 win over Casimiero and was a WBO 108-pound titlist in 2011, but lost title fights to Donnie Nietes and Roman Gonzalez. Hirales is now 20-5-1. source: laaficion.com

Omar A. Narvaez W12 Felipe Orucuta... Fighting in his home nation of Argentina, Omar Andres Narvaez retained the WBO 115-pound title against Mexico's Felipe Orucuta via majority decision on Saturday. Official scores were 114-114 and 116-112 (twice) for Narvaez. Now 43-1-2, Narvaez has been a WBO titlist at 112 or 115 pounds nearly continuously since 2002. His lone loss was to Nonito Donaire at 118 pounds, but Narvaez has rarely fought the best competition available and has rarely left Argentina. This was the second time Orocuta (29-3) lost to Narvaez. In 2013, he dropped a split decision to Marvaez, also in Argentina. source: wbo website

WBC ANNOUNCES ELIMINATOR TO DETERMINE SANTA CRUZ MANDATORY

According to the WBC, Andres “Jaguar” Gutierrez and Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz will face each other on November 8th in Queretaro, Mexico. The WBC has sanctioned the bout as an eliminator in the 122-pound category, meaning the winner will become the mandatory challenger for the current titlist, Leo Santa Cruz. Although the Mexico-based WBC has chosen two Mexicans for the eliminator, this bout is the rare occasion where the WBC picked two worthy contenders. Gutierrez is 30-0-1 with 22 KOs. In his last American bout, Gutierrez stopped Salvador Sanchez, a relative of the hall of famer with the same name. The WBC reports that Gutierrez has already completed a mont of training in Guadalajara, led by Jose Chepo Reynoso. Ruiz is 34-2 with 30 KOs. He went to Japan in 2012 and challenged Japanese idol Koki Kameda for the WBA 118-pound title, and lost by split decision. --Scott Shaffer

GEORGE GROVES CALLS OUT ANTHONY DIRRELL

Press Release: George Groves bounced back from two losses to Carl Froch by defeating France's Christopher Rebrasse via unanimous decision in England. The former British and Commonwealth champion has now added the European championship to his resume. The bout was also a WBC eliminator meaning the super middleweight can prepare for a mandatory challenge against current title holder Anthony Dirrell. "Dirrell has already made some statements, he’s a bit cheeky, a little bit outspoken,’’ said Groves. "He’s been quite disrespectful to Rebrasse. I knock out a lot of guys and Rebrasse took some big shots. I’m not sure Dirrell could stand up to some of the punches I landed tonight. He has said he doesn’t want to fight me, that he doesn’t want to come to the UK but now he may just have to.’’ Groves' pomoter Kalle Sauerland says he is ready to begin negotiations for a WBC title fight. "We’re ready to start to talking to Dirrell’s people. I don’t see any other options for them, there are no bigger fights out there. George is a natural entertainer inside and outside the ring. He has a style that would be very appealing to a US audience.’’

 DAILY BREAD SUNDAY EDITION:(9-21-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Mayweather, Ariza, Pacquiao & more....

I can’t see how writer Doug Fischer does not believe Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao are all-time greats. He puts Bernard Hopkins in as an all-time great but Hopkins missed a slew of middleweights in the early 90’s. And he dogged Roy Jones on a rematch he would have been sure to lose. Hopkins never fought James Toney, Gerald McClellan, Julian Jackson or Mike McCallum. I can go on and on. I just don’t get you guys and your mailbag logic. I refuse to write into Doug anymore because he’s obviously biased. I hope you don’t go up the same road.

SEVEN YEARS LATER, DONFACK GIVES PAWLAK A REMATCH

Press Release: In Saarbruecken, Germany on Saturday October 11th, female flyweight Raja Amasheh (17-0-1) will face Amira Hamzaoui (10-1) from France, while super middleweight Bernard Donfack (20-11-3) goes in for a rematch against Christian Pawlak, (20-5-1) a match-up with big local intrigue. Last May, Amasheh moved down a weight division to defeat Mexican Susana Cruz Perez by unanimous decision. Donfack knocked out Argentina's Javier Alberto Mamani in the tenth round in his last fight. Donfack has a very deceiving record, as he started his by going 6-7-3 but has now won five straight. One of Donfack's win was a 2007 split decision over Pawlak. Both fights will have WBF titles at stake.
