EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: LOU DIBELLA
By G. Leon

GL: What's the latest and greates with DiBella Entertainment Lou? "I'm looking forward to co-promoting with Mayweather in doing Badou Jack and James DeGale which I think is one of the best unification bouts you could make in boxing. Also on that show is Jose Pedraza and Gervonta Davis and certainly Showtime Xtreme has a tremendous show in its own right with Stephen Espinoza breaking a barrier and putting Amanda Serrano in the main event of Showtime Xtreme against another girl who is a multi-division world champion Yazmin Rivas and on the same Xtreme card Ievgen Khytrov is fighting Immanuwel Aleem another undefeated middleweight, so it's a tremendous card from top to bottom and it will be at the Barclay Center on January 14. After that, on January 28 I have Dejan Zlaticanin, my champion at 135 defending his title against Mikey Garcia in what's a very high profile bout. If Zlaticanin can beat Mikey, which I think he can, it elevates him to stardom. He's already a world champion, but a victory over Mikey Garcia would put him on a whole different level, that's what we've got cooking in the immediate future."

RAU'SHEE WARREN RETURNS IN LATE JANUARY: IS RIGONDEAUX FIGHT ON THE HORIZON?
By G. Leon

GL: What's the latest and greatest and what can we expect to see from you when you return to the ring in late January? "Right now all I've been doing is training and getting ready for my next fight and the next level of boxing as far as being a champion. I'm trying to keep it that way to get to that next level with my skills, I feel like there's a lot of people in my weight class that can't beat me and are scared of my speed. A lot of people want to count me out and say my name, but these are the same people that wouldn't fight me in the amateurs, the same people who was scared to fight me in the amateurs. It's funny now they're willing to fight me, but I'm going to do whatever I got to do to keep my titles and it's going to be hard to take it away from me."

NEW CHAMP ALERT: GASSIEV DETHRONES LEDBEDEV
By Scott Shaffer

Corrupt WBA continues to recognize the loser as champ

Murat Gassiev W12 Denis Lebedev… In an all-Russian cruiserweight battle, Murat Gassiev defeated Denis Lebedev to become the IBF cruiserweight champion, and, along with WBO champion Aleksandr Usyk, one of the top two cruiserweight in the world. Gassiev, a 23 year-old trained by Abel Sanchez, knocked the Freddie Roach-trained Lebedev down in round five and went on to win by split decision. Scores were 116-111, 116-112 for Gassiev and 114-113 for  the 37 year-old Lebedev. In the very worst of boxing politics, Lebedev will retain the WBA cruiserweight title because his promoter “convinced” the WBA that the title should not be on the line against an IBF mandatory. Boxingtalk has absolutely no evidence that any payment was received by the WBA for this ridiculous privilege.

TOKA KAHN CLARY AND SHELITO VINCENT POST WINS IN RHODE ISLAND

Toka Kahn Clary KO2 Mario Macias… In Lincoln City, Rhode Island, Toka Kahn Clary (20-1, 14 KOs) wasted little time disposing of Mexico’s Mario Macias (28-21) via second-round knockout at the 1:58 mark.  The super featherweight Kahn was coming off a knockout loss to journeyman Jhon Gemini three months ago. Kahn began unloading in the second, dropping Macias with a straight left midway through the round. Macias got back up and kept fighting, at one point landing a hard right hook to the body, but as he continued to fight on the inside, Kahn adjusted by cracking him to the chin with a right uppercut. Macias dropped to both knees and tried to beat the count, but referee Danny Schavione ended the bout.

 

Shelito Vincent W8 Marquita Lee.. Shelly Vincent (19-1) hadn’t fought at Twin River since 2015, but on Friday she outworked the tough Marquita Lee (3-3) of Novato, Calif..  Official scores were 80-72, 77-75 and 79-73.

Ceferino Rodriguez W12 Ahmed El Mousaoui …  At Las Palmas in Islas Canarias, Spain, Ceferino "Ferino V" Rodriguez (24-1, 12 KOs) won the vacant European welterweight title with a hard-fought split-decision victory over France's Ahmed El Mousaoui (24-3-1, 6 KOs). Rodriguez’s co-promoters, Sampson Lewkowicz and Sergio Martinez hope the victory sets up a potential showdown with former two-weight champion Paulie Malignaggi for Rodriguez's newly won European championship on American soil. "I am happy to have won such a rough fight," said Rodriguez. "Now I want to make history with a fight between a Spaniard and an Italian on American soil. Bring me Paulie Malignaggi." source: sampson boxing
