DEREVYANCHENKO OUT, HARRISON IN ON ESPN2 MAIN EVENT

Press Release: The previously announced ESPN2 Friday Night Fights card has shaken up a bit. The card, to be held at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT, was originally slated to be headlined by Sergey Derevyanchenko taking on Elvin Ayala.  [Editor's note: Ayala fought on Saturday, defeating Ronald Gavril, apparently without the knowledge or consent of the ESPN2 card's lead promoter, Lou DiBella].  With Ayala now unavailable, DiBella has moved Derevyanchenko over to the April 10th ShoBox card, and will fill the ESPN2 main event with red-hot junior middleweight Tony Harrison (20-0, 17 KOs) against Mexico's Pablo Munguia (20-6, 11KOs) in a ten rounder. The co-feature remains intact with 130-pounder Ryan Kielczweski (22-0, 6 KOs) facing Connecticut's own Danny Aquino (16-2, 10 KOs) in an eight-round battle for New England bragging rights.

MOTHMORA WINS IN FRANCE

Michel Mothmora TKO6 Baker Barakat... Frenchman Michel Mothmora (27-23) recorded a sixth-round stoppage of Germany’s Baker Barakat (41-18-4) in a middleweight contest held in Loiret, France on Friday. Barakat came out looking for a knockout from the first bell, and Mothmora had to be active to prevent the visitor from taking control of the fight. In the first few rounds, it was anybody’s guess who would come out on top. Adding to the drama, both suffered a cut over one eye in round four after an accidental head-clash. But in the sixth round, Mothmora clearly looked the strongest of the two and overwhelmed Barakat with a flurry of punches that sagged him on the ropes and prompted referee Christophe Hembert to correctly wave the fight off at 2:25 of the round. source: wbf

 WBC ORDERS STEVENSON-KOVALEV PURSE BID FOR APRIL 17TH EVEN THOUGH STEVENSON HAS A FIGHT BEFORE THEN

Edited Press Release:  Adonis "Superman" Stevenson holds the lineal light heavyweight world championship and the WBC title. Because Stevenson avoided major fights in 2014, Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev was able to unify the IBF, WBO and WBA championships. The boxing world is clamoring for the world's two best 175-pound boxers to face each other and the WBC recently took a positive step by ordering Stevenson to make a mandatory defense against Kovalev. This was unusual but welcome because the WBC usually discourages title unification. Now the WBC has taken a very strange turn, ordering a purse bid for Stevenson-Kovalev to take place on April 17th even though Stevenson has an April 4th fight against Sakio Bika. A purse bid would determine whether Stevenson's or Kovalev's promoter would stage this major event. It is unclear whether the WBC's latest ploy will facilitate or hinder the big fight, but already, Stevenson's promoter, who has backed out of a Stevenson-Kovalev fight in the past, has come out in favor of the WBC's ruling.

COMPARING MAYWEATHER-PACQUIAO TO HOLYFIELD-TYSON I
By Tommy Canez

When I heard the recent announcement that Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield will participate in a charity sparring session against former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, I thought about how Holyfield defied the odds in boxing time after time. Specifically, one of Holyfield's most memorable bouts was his epic 1996 upset of Mike Tyson (the first of two Holyfield-Tyson fights, both won by Holyfield).  Just as Holyfield once went up against and defeated boxing's ultimate villain, Mike Tyson, Manny Pacquiao is now gearing up to take on boxing's current ultimate villain, Floyd Mayweather on May 2nd. Thinking back on Holyfield's upset of Tyson, I cannot help but think how Pacquiao has vast similarities to Holyfield going into the biggest fight of his life.
