Having a statue alongside the statues of two great personalities is always something prestigious and a matter of feeling proud. American boxer Oscar De La Hoya is no different. ‘The Golden Boy’ recently unveiled his own statue which is situated alongside the statues of two greats Wayne Gretzky and Magic Johnson. The former is the legend of Ice Hockey and the latter is the greatest ever Basketball player. Naturally, Oscar De La Hoya is now overly happy and proud of himself and his achievements in his boxing career. However, the Los Angles boxer does not have much time to sit back and cherish this event, because he is going to face Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night in a great fight.

This dream match is scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The two great boxes will take on each other at the welterweight (147 pounds) weight section. Many boxing fans have been waiting for this encounter for a long time. Oscar De La Hoya switched weight classes several time over the last couple of years and experienced mixed results. However, Pacquiao is expected to face a strong challenge from the American in the match.

The good thing about the match is that both the players have a big fan bases and lots of fans will follow this match. All the people in Philippine are eagerly waiting to see Manny Pacquiao coming out as winner in the match. His speed and stamina would be tested largely by Oscar De La Hoya’s power and height.

After Joe Calzagh, Roy Jones Jr. Wants to Fight with Bernard Hopkins

Following Joe Calzagh’s split-decision victory over Bernard Hopkins few months back, Roy Jones Jr. became interested to fight against Joe Calzagh. Later on, the two influential boxers of this time came to an agreement to fight for the Ring Magazine Light-Heavyweight championship title which is currently held by Joe Calzagh. The match was supposed to be held on 20 September 2008, but was postponed for few moths following Joe Calzagh’s injury to his right hand. The match has been rescheduled to November 8 2008 and will take place at the Madison Square Garden, New York.

Roy Jones Jr. has recently said he is confident to beat Joe Calzagh and after that he is interested to a rematch with Bernard Hopkins whom Jones Jr. defeated 15 years ago. Former Ring Magazine pound for pound champion, Roy Jones Jr., thinks that Hopkins deserves a rematch.

Doghouseboxing reported:

On the subject of fighting Hopkins, Jones Jr writes in his column: "People want to see me and Bernard do it again after I beat Joe. I beat Bernard 15 years ago and I will do it again if we fight. I'd like that fight and if it makes sense and we come up with a good deal, for sure I will do it. People want to see if Bernard can get revenge."
Jones Jr. remains cautious and isn't looking past Calzaghe, stating: "But first I need to take of Joe, which I will do."

The November 8 bout between American boxer Roy Jones Jr. and Joe Calzagh from Welsh seems to be one of the big fight of this year with two champion fighters taking on each other. The match will be covered by HBO PPV television channel. I think, Roy Jones Jr. should focus on the upcoming bout with Joe Calzagh first, before looking to any other fight.

Kelly Pavlik to Move Back Down to Middleweight Division Following Defeat to Bernard Hopkins

After the heavy defeat to Bernard Hopkins recently, Kelly Pavlik has decided to keep fighting down to middleweight division where he is now the undisputed champion with The Ring, WBC and WBO middleweight championship titles. The Ohio-based boxer was the intention to move to the upper division, but the defeat to Bernard Hopkins has put an end to his hope to move up in weight division. In fact, the defeat to Bernard Hopkins has been Pavlik’s first in career. He has recently admitted that he will continue defending his middleweight titles which he has already done twice.

Kelly Pavlik is known as a powerful boxer with full of power in both of his hands. However, the 26-year-old failed to show his attacking prowess against Bernard Hopkins in their recent bout. A victory against Hopkins might have lured Joe Calzaghe for a fight against Pavlik and boxing fans could have experienced another high-profile boxing bout.

However, Kelly Pavlik is still the leader in middleweight division and has already defended his titles with success. Pavlik might have to face promising German boxer Arthur Abraham in another title defense if Abraham can defeat Raul Marquez next month. Otherwise, Pavlik will remain as the undisputed champion of middleweight division until another middleweight boxer comes to challenge him. So, Kelly Pavlik can be relaxed now for a while.

Chinese Boxers Looking for Olympic Glory

China is the top nation from Asia in Olympics. This time there is a more important reason for Chinese players to perform better in Olympics 2008. You know that Beijing is going to host Olympics. So, Chinese boxers are hopeful that they will do well in this tournament.

Xinhua reported:

According to Zhang, China's current strongest rivals still remain from Cuba and Russia. Cuba used to be the big brother in former Olympic boxing matches, though it has lost five world champions in recent years and still has the power to smash most of its opponents.

Russia never worries about lacking world champions or powerful boxers, and its overall strength is almost as strong as the Cubans. Some other foreign teams also improve fast in recent years such as Italy, said Zhang, so Chinese boxers must be serious about every opponent and every match.

China was never considered to be a big power in world boxing. Maybe this time they can change this condition. Let us see if they can do it.

Wayne McCullough Announced Retirement from Boxing

Wayne McCullough, the former world bantamweight champion, has announced his retirement from boxing following a defeat to Juan Ruiz in a NABF featherweight bout in Cayman Islands. With this bout against Juan Ruiz, McCullough came back to the ring since losing to Oscar Larios in WBC super bantamweight title fight in Las Vegas in 2005.

McCullough had a good start against American boxer Juan Ruiz as he was ahead on the scorecards of two of the three boxers after the end of six rounds and took the microphone to declare his retirement from boxing. Thanking all the spectators present in the fight, he said that it was his last fight and expressed that he had felt he could not go on. McCullough won world bantamweight championship title in 1995, two years after his appearance in a professional bout. The boxer defended his world bantamweight championship title twice- once against Johnny Bredahl and then against Jose Luis Bueno, before he lost it in 1997 due to weight difficulties and then being lost to Daniel Zaragoza on points in a WBC super bantamweight fight.

I do not know why McCullough did not continue against Juan Ruiz to clinch a victory in the last fight in his career. Anyway, I think, whatever he did in his illustrious career is enough to earn the respect from the boxing fans and players. I do not know whether should I call him a legend or just a star player, but one thing is for sure that the spirit and positive approach to the game he had throughout his career is something that young players can learn from.

Australian fans want Fenech take the revenge of his defeat to Nelson in 1992 in Australia.

Secondsout reported:

Whilst I feel the ’Marrickville Mauler’ decision to make a comeback 12 years after he last fought to face Nelson is partly fueled by revenge and redemption my esteemed and respected Australian colleague Paul Upham insists it is Jeff’s fighting spirit that drives him on.
“Jeff is a fighting man and he loves to fight,” insists Upham. “ It’s what he loves to do. Azumah is the same, they both love the rivalry, the competition.”

It is in deed is going to be an exciting match. You can expect to see the two once great players playing in similar fashion. Age must have taken some tool from both of them, though considering their fighting spirit and strong mentality in the ring enough to attract the fans, what they did throughout of their career.

Independent reported:

"I'm gutted" Witter said. "I can't believe it, I thought I'd done enough to win. It was not my best performances and I give Bradley credit. He took some good shots. But before I went down I thought I'd won every round and I got up and thought I went on to win the fight."
