ABRAHAM WANTS STURM-STIEGLITZ WINNER BEFORE A SMITH REMATCH

After WBO 168-pound titlist Arthur Abraham defeated Paul Smith by a wide unanimous decision in Germany over the weekend, Smith is pressing for a rematch, claiming he deserved the decision even though the scores were not close (117-111, twice, and 119-109). Smith argued, "I think the judges got it wrong. I’ve been waiting a long time for this opportunity. I just wanted a fair crack at the whip and I don’t think I got that.’’ Abraham responded: "Smith was by no means an easy opponent and he made me work hard for the win... I would fight Paul again. I’m sure it would be another exciting fight. However the circumstances would need to be right. At the moment the most interesting fight for me would be Felix Sturm or Robert Stieglitz [who fight each other later this year].’’ Abraham's promoter, Kalle Sauerland agreed: "I have a lot of respect for Paul, his family and his team. He did himself proud tonight. But Arthur has shown yet again that he belongs at the top of the division. A rematch with Paul is a possibility but first we will be looking at the winner of Felix Sturm and Robert Stieglitz.’’  source: sauerland event

 RING ANNOUNCER ED DERIAN PASSES AWAY
By Scott Shaffer

Promoter Russell Peltz announced the death of ring announcer Ed Derian on his Facebook page. Peltz wrote: "Ed Derian, who was my ring announcer and, more importantly, my friend, passed away yesterday. We began working together in the mid-1970s at a time when the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission designated who would be the ring announcer at different fight cards. I finally got that preposterous rule changed in the 1980s and Ed became my steady guy from then until about two years ago when his beloved wife Roxy died. Ed was the in-ring voice for all those great Tuesday Night Fights on USA Network from the Blue Horizon." A sample of Ed's work in 1997 (Arturo Gatti vs. Calvin Groves) can be seen here). Boxingtalk extends its deepest condolences to the friends and family of Ed Derian.

 BETERBIEV NOW A PLAYER AT LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

Artur Beterbiev KO2 Tavoris Cloud... There's a new player in the light heavyweight division and his name is  Artur Beterbiev. In Montreal last night, the Canadian-based Russian dominated and stopped former IBF titlist Tavoris Cloud in the second round. The destruction saw Cloud get knocked down three times in the first round and get counted out in the second. Prior to this fight, Beterbiev was just 5-0 as a pro and defeated only one opponent with a winning record (and that was Rayco Saunders, who is now 23-24-2). Beterbiev's win was not a complete surprise, as he is a two-time Olympian and a former world amateur champion. He has also beaten Sergey Kovalev as an amateur.

By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

I just got wind the [proposed] James Kirkland vs. Gabe Rosado fight is now definitely off, due to Kirkland's issues with his purse. I'm a fan and want to see him succeed, but damn, he has to be one of the worst decision makers in the history of boxing. I've lost track of how many times he's come close to committing career suicide. Two questions for you: do you happen to know how much he was going to receive for this fight and what do you think will/should be his next move?

ROY JONES JR. GETS KO1 IN RUSSIA
By Rick Evans

Roy Jones KO1 Hany Atiyo... Former multi-division champion Roy Jones, Jr. returned to the ring exactly two months after his last fight and scored a first-round body punch knockout over unheralded Egyptian Hany Atiyo at the Basket Hall in Krasnodar, Russia. Jones pursued Atiyo and threw hard left hooks to the body on a few different occasions, usually setting the shot up by throwing a lead left hook to the head. That was the combination that finished Atiyo, who blocked the left upstairs, but crumbled after getting hit with the left to the body. The end came at 1:15 of the opening round. Jones, who has held world titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight improved his record to 59-8 with 42 KOs. This bout was a cruiserweight fight with Jones saying afterwards that he hopes to fight in Russia in the future. The 45 year-old now has a modest five-fight win streak dating back to 2011. Atiyo has now lost two in a row and falls to 14-3 with 10KOs.

But does Alvarez have a chance to steal pay-per-view buys from Mayweather and outsell boxing's most marketable commodity? It is very possible.
