DANNY JACOBS WANTS CALEB TRUAX, STRONGLY CONSIDERING MOVE TO 168
By G. Leon

Middleweight contender Danny Jacobs' head trainer Andre Rozier has just informed Boxingtalk that the former WBA title holder wants to fight Caleb Truax for the IBF super middleweight title on April 28th. Jacobs stopped Truax in the twelfth round on April 24, 2015 and is willing to give the newly minted champion a shot at revenge in an HBO main event. "We would have loved to fight BJ Saunders for the WBO (middleweight) title, but he's picking a choosing who he wants to fight and he definitely doesn't want to fight Danny," said Rozier.  The trainer added that if Jacobs does in fact make the move up to super middleweight, his days at middleweight will be over. Truax shocked the boxing world in December by going to England and upsetting James DeGale for the IBF title. It is unclear if Truax has a rematch obligation to DeGale.

By G. Leon

GL: Congrats on a dominant victory over Tori Nelson. Can you give us some thoughts on your performance? I didn't watch the fight yet, but during the fight I did feel like she was tough, but she wasn't that skilled or strong. I was trying to get her out of there and TKO her, but she used a lot of survival tactics. She ducked a lot, she held and she even headbutted me one time. She's an experienced fighter who knew how to survive. I wanted the TKO, but I'm happy I got the unanimous decision and was able to go all of the rounds without getting tired.

A LOOK AT THE POOR STATE OF SOUTH AFRICAN BOXING
Published by Golden Gloves Boxing

As the boxing year swings into sharp focus, prominent South African promoters Golden Gloves and African Ring have expressed grave concerns over the limited options available to young local fighters. While overseas prospects can expect to fight up to six times a year, there are South African protťgťs who fight as little as once a year. It doesnít take a boxing scholar to realize that far from developing a boxer, such a schedule can only see talent wither on the vine. Itís one thing to be an ambitious pro fighter, quite another to put food on the table. Many top SA boxers, never mind young aspirants, struggle to do so.

TOP RANK SIGNS DAVID KAMINSKY, AGE 17

Press Release: Top Rank has signed David Kaminsky, a 17 year-old junior middleweight. David said, ďI train at the Sport Club Gym in Reseda, California. Itís my dadís gym. Iíve been training three times a day for four years now. I never went to traditional high school. I do home school, so training doesnít get in the way of my education. Iíve been doing that for three years now. Iím a junior in high school Ė 11th grade Ė so I have another year and a half left. Iíve been sparring pros since the age of 14. I was Viktor Postolís official sparring partner for six weeks for his fight against Terence Crawford... Iíve sparred many greats, like Shane Mosley, I sparred the current IBF champion Sergei Lipinets. I sparred Ivan Redkach, and I sparred Radzhab Butaev. I can do every different style for every different fighter. Once I step in the ring, I pick up a style right away. Me and my dad have been working for so many years, and we pick up styles from different types of fighters. So, if I need to be slick, I can be slick. If I need pressure, I can use pressure. If I need to move on my feet, I move on my feet. But I do have a punch. I donít really like speed, but I like to hit with power.Ē

ANTHONY MUNDINE BEATS PUFFED-UP FEATHERWEIGHT
By Scott Shaffer

Anthony Mundine KO2 Tommy Browne... In Australia, Anthony Mundine looked terrible but nonetheless defeated fellow Australian Tommy Browne via second-round knockout in a middleweight contest.  The 42 year-old Mundine (48-8) took a bit of a beating in the first round, and retreated to the ropes in the second before landing a right hand that badly hurt Browne (35-7-2).  Mundine (pictured) finished the fight a few seconds later with a hard left. Of course, it was a mismatch to begin with, as this fight was fought at middleweight and Browne's best days were as a featherweight (he lost  2005 title challenges to In-Jin Chi and Chris John). Mundine, who held the WBA 168-pound title more than a decade ago, hopes to shrink his weight further down to fight WBO welterweight champion in what would be an Australian super fight. Boxingtalk would favor Horn. source: news.com.au

BARRY HUNTER ON SPENCE-PETERSON: LAMONT'S INTELLIGENCE WILL BE THE DIFFERENCE
By G. Leon

How's everything going with Lamont Peterson in preparation for Errol Spence on Saturday night? "Everything went like it was supposed to. The good part about it is there was no injuries or sickness, so leading up to the fight we're in a good position."  I know you're not going to give away your game plan, but what kind of tactics can we expect from Lamont?  "I think that you could expect to see an array of different styles, because I know that Errol knows me well. He's been around me, he's been in camp with me, we've been on trips together so he's aware of the things I'd put [Lamont] onto going into a fight. I think this is going to be a fight of adjustments. They're going to have to make adjustments to what we do and it's going to be the same on this end. I think in Lamont's case, you're going to see a lot more versatility and it's going to be on full display on Saturday."

RICARDO MAYORGA ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT ON TWITTER

Former world welterweight champion Ricardo Mayorga of Nicaragua formally retired from boxing at the age of 44.  A crude, but at times very effective brawler, Mayorga won the WBA welterweight title in 2001 from Andrew "Six Heads" Lewis, defeated Lewis again, then defeated Vernon Forrest in 2003 to unify the WBC (and world) championships. Mayorga defeated Forrest in a rematch then lost the championship to Cory Spinks, all in 2003. Amidst questions about his discipline, he never again reached such great heights, but he did beat Fernando Vargas in a past-their-primes match-up in 2007. Mayorga, who winds up 32-10-1, was always entertaining. Mayorga tweeted, "Matador es retire. Gracias to all fans for support us. Viva boxeo! Viva Nicaragua!" Boxingtalk hopes Mayorga finds success and happiness in his post-boxing life.--Scott Shaffer

DIBELLA TALKS SPENCE VS. PETERSON CARD
By G. Leon

We're days away from the big show in Brooklyn headlined by Errol Spence defending his welterweight championship against Lamont Peterson, with the Robert Easter Jr-Javier Fortuna bout as the chief support. Can you give us some final thoughts on the two featured bouts as well as the rest of the undercard? "I think it's a great way to start the year with big time boxing on Showtime live from the Barclay's Center. Errol Spence is one of the rising young superstars in boxing, but Lamont Peterson is not an opponent. Peterson is a championship caliber welterweight. He's got one of the best resumes in the world and I expect it to be a dog fight because both of these guys come to fight. Neither guy moves or runs and even if Peterson has his hands full he's going to bring the fight to Spence and he's going to push Spence. I think Spence is the favorite, but right now he'd be the favorite against just about anybody. Spence views himself as not only the best welterweight in the world, but he views himself as one of the best fighters in the world. If he's that guy then he's got to prove it against a guy the caliber of Peterson. I expect that to be a terrific main event. It's going to be a real exciting fight for as long as it goes, but if Spence dominates a guy as good as Peterson, then you've got to say there's a new sheriff in town. There's all sorts of terrific match-ups that can be made for him moving forward as long as he's able to earn his stripes against Peterson."

SALITA: CLARESSA SHIELDS MOVING DOWN TO MIDDLEWEIGHT
By G. Leon

Congrats on a sensational Shobox card. You had Shohjahon Ergashev make a statement in the opening bout, Hernandez and Garza went to war and Claressa pitched a shutout. It was a great way to start off the year on TV. I'm very proud of the fights that we were able to put together and the effort we got from the fighters. I believe Ergashev is going to be a star in boxing and I think he's the future of the junior welterweight division. I see a lot of great fights versus a lot of top names in his future. Jesse Hernandez is an emerging name in the super bantamweight division. He beat two undefeated fighters going into the Garza fight and Ernesto has a tremendous amateur background and he had been fighting above his weight class. He's a natural 122-pounder and as we saw he was in tremendous condition and put up a hell of a fight. It was a very, very exciting fight and I think Jesse is on his way to becoming one of the top super bantamweights in the world. He has shown the will and the ability to fight the best fighters. Claressa is in a league of her own. She's a great ambassador for the sport and it was another spectacular performance for her. It was the first time she's gone ten rounds and she did it defending her titles. Now she's going to be going down to middleweight and she's going to capture a world title there and then we're going to look towards what I believe will be the biggest fight in the history of women's boxing with Claressa fighting Christina Hammer.
