By Ryan Burton, at the scaleLas Vegas, Nevada - WBA featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, and IBF champion Orlando Salido, easily made weight for their scheduled unifcation on Saturday night at The Palms Resort and Casino.
Eubank Jr – who scaled 11st 6lbs, Jeter weighing 11st 5lbs 6oz – joined forces with Eddie Hearn in September and fights under his new promoter for the first time this weekend, defending his WBA Interim Middleweight title in the process. Gavin McDonnell has vowed to join his brother as a World champion ahead of his European Super Bantamweight title defense against Jeremy Parodi.
McDonnell’s twin Jamie twice travelled to Texas this year to defeat Japanese star Tomoki Kameda in defences of his WBA Bantamweight title, and his success has been a driving force in his training as he defends his Euro strap for the first time against the Frenchman.
McDonnell’s European title defence is part of a big night of action in Sheffield as Chris Eubank Jr makes his Sky Sports debut defending his WBA Interim Middleweight title against American Tony Jeter. All four marquee fighters for Saturday night’s Premier Boxing Champions card in Brooklyn, New York, weighed in and are ready for action.
Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson get animated during Friday's weigh-in in Brooklyn, New York.Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson both came in under the 143-pound limit Friday for their 12-round bout. By signing up I certify I am at least 13 years old and wish to receive news emails from PBC. Deontay Wilder spent his 27th birthday in training camp as the primary sparring partner for then heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko to help prep Klitschko for his unanimous decision over Mariusz Wach in November 2012. Right after Danny Garcia won his unanimous decision over Robert Guerrero on Saturday night in Los Angeles, Guerrero was adamant he wanted a rematch.
For five rounds, Robert Guerrero looked like a fighter who was younger, hungrier and sharper than Danny Garcia.
And as he reflected on the 43 fights before his crack at Tyrone Nurse next month, he rates the defeat to Crolla five years ago as his lowest ebb.
Gamboa came in ripped and ready at the division limit of 126-pounds, and Salido, also in good shape, was 126-pounds. Andre Berto: The first fight, the aftermath, the rematch & a predictionAndre Ward dominates Sullivan Barrera, but is he ready for Sergey Kovalev?
A showdown with Spike O’Sullivan at The O2 on December 12 is slated for Eubank if he gets past the American – and his legendary father believes these are the first steps on the way to world titles. I firmly believe that Junior will be crowned a Middleweight World champion, will beat the likes of Gennady Golovkin, and will be recognised as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.
For me to not get involved, having been to the highest heights, would simply be bad parenting.
I had the constitution of a warrior, I wasn’t a normal father – I was a 23 year old sportsman when he was born. I want some good fights on the fringe of World titles to keep getting that experience ready for when I do fight for a World title.
Leigh Wood faces Josh Wale in an eliminator for the British Featherweight title, there’s the hotly anticipated clash between Sheffield’s Atif Shafiq and Derby’s Jamie Robinson and a host of young local talent is also in action.
After that, Garcia showed why he’s an undefeated world champion who dominated the 140-pound ranks, then made the right decision to move up. If you dona€™t compensate for that and put it on before the fight, youa€™re going to fall well below and be like a zombie. He is my son, it’s ridiculous to think that I would not be involved, I am not trying to take the limelight, I am protecting and guiding my son, and I believe I have done a good job.
I took a beating for 12 rounds but throughout the fight I knew there was nothing I could do about it.
It didna€™t go my way and Ia€™ve had to live with it.a€? For a guy who has lost just four of his 43 bouts a€“ and all to future world champions a€“ Limond probably doesna€™t get the credit he deserves. All to lose a single pound of body weight for his British lightweight title fight against Anthony Crolla in Motherwell. His company Lock Stock Promotions want to unearth the next Limond in Scotlanda€™s working-class areas and make them champions. But not before he sees off Nurse and potentially sets up a mouth-watering clash with Burns in their home city. Limond said: a€?Look at the guys who have beaten me a€“ Kahn, Alex Arthur, Crolla and Eric Morales, theya€™ve all gone on to be world champions. Hea€™ll be on the undercard for Ricky Burns a€™ world title shot against Michele Di Rocco at the Hydro in Glasgow on May 28. Ia€™ve boxed since I was six and that should have been the moment where everything came to fruition.
