MIKEY GARCIA: GETTING THROUGH BRONER WILL TAKE ME TO THAT NEXT LEVEL
By G. Leon

"Consistency is my biggest advantage!"

GL: How's everything going in preparation for your big fight with Adrien Broner on July 29? Everything has gone great. We're wrapping up camp here in Riverside. I'm right where I need to be, the sparring has been great. The speed, the footwork, strength, power, everything is there. I'm very excited for the fight, I'm looking forward to getting back into the ring. I can't wait to show the fans what I'm capable of doing.

MIKE STAFFORD: GARCIA ISN'T ON AB'S LEVEL
By G. Leon

GL: How's everything going with Adrien (Broner) in camp? What can we expect to see from him on July 29th? Everything is going along as scheduled. We've been out here for about six weeks now. What a lot of people don't realize is that even when the fight was being negotiated he was doing things to get himself in shape mentally and physically because he knew that in his next fight he was going to be fighting somebody. That's his whole motto, once he beats someone, they want him to fight someone else. With that in mind he's always preparing himself mentally and physically also. He came to camp in Colorado Springs and got right to business. He started sparring ten rounds and now he's up to twelve and fifteen rounds. He's on schedule coming into camp and that's what I really like about this whole situaton. We know it's in the contract that they're watching if he's going to make weight, but this fight means something. Sometimes you have to be in something big, and I'm not making excuses for him, but there's probably some fights that didn't mean anything to him because he knew he was going to be victorious at the end of the day.

By Scott Shaffer

The win was historic because Kyoguchi turned pro just 15 months ago, and this was only his eighth pro fight. The bout was fast paced, although there were a lot of clinches.  In the ninth round, Kyoguchi, floored Argumendo and went hard for the KO, but Argumendo survived the round and fought very competitively over the last three frames.  Kyoguchi won all the official scorecards, gaining back for Japan the title that Argumendo had taken from Katsunori Takayama in 2015. Argumendo is now 20-4-1. 

Ryoichi Taguchi TKO9 Robert Barrera ... On the same show, Ryoichi Taguchi (26-2-2) retained the WBA 108-pound championship, defeating Colombia's Robert Barrera (18-2) by technical knockout in the ninth round. After three close rounds, Taguchi took control in round four, hurting Barrera just as the round ended. Things went down hill for Barrera, who continued to take punishment until the referee ended the bout in round nine. Taguchi has reigned since December 2014, winning six title fights with one draw.  source for both results: japan times

DIBELLA TALKS UP BRONER-GARCIA EVENT
By G. Leon

GL: Can you give us some post fight thoughts on the Figueroa-Guerrero event? It was a significant night in some ways. Adam Kownacki surprised a lot of people, but I've known him since he was an amateur. He has that baby face and that baby fat and it disguises what kind of kid he really is. He's going to make some serious noise in the heavyweight division and I believe he's going to end up fighting for a world title at some point. Seanie is somebody who always starts slow, but he walked into the ring and he looked dry and was sort of overwhelmed. You can't do that with a guy as athletic and good as Marcus Browne. I think Marcus Browne made a statement. He didn't give Seanie the chance to start slow because he was on him from the opening bell. You could tell almost immediately that it was going to be a problem for Sean. Marcus Browne has gotten a couple of solid wins in a row now against Thomas Williams and Sean that make him look like the heir apparent in the light heavyweight division.
