Miranda: "Nobody Can Stop Me at 168-Pounds"

HOLLYWOOD, FL – If opponents of Edison Miranda thought that they had enough problems to deal with before, after ‘Pantera’s surgical destruction of veteran contender Henry Porras on October 30th, they now know that they’re dealing with a bigger, stronger, faster, and more dangerous fighter than ever before.

That’s a frightening thought for Miranda’s new peers at 168 pounds.

“It feels great to be back, and I’m happy with my performance against Porras,” said Miranda, now 29-2 with 25 KOs. “I wanted to show some of the new things I’ve been working on in the gym in Puerto Rico in my time off, and everything went according to plan.”

Using a patient attack, a steady jab, and a refined accuracy few knew he had, Miranda picked Porras apart round by round until stopping him in the fifth round. It was a master class by a fighter once dismissed as a one-dimensional slugger.

“I want the world to know that I can do it all in the ring,” said Miranda. “Of course, my first love is knocking my opponents out, but I want them to fear me wherever the fight goes, whether it’s in the trenches or at long range. I feel completely different at this weight. I’m more dangerous than ever, and I don’t think anyone can stop me now at 168 pounds.”

Pantera is already back in the gym in Puerto Rico, preparing for a fight to be announced soon.

Tuesday’s fight can be seen on replay all this week on the HDnet and later in the month it will be shown on most regional sports networks.

Frankie Figueroa-Noel Rodriguez Set For 11/16

New York State Light Welterweight Champion, WBC Mundo Continental Hispano Champion and newly appointed NABF Light Welterweight Champion Frankie “El Gato” Figueroa, ranked the No. 14 contender by the International Boxing Federation (IBF) and the No. 12 contender by the World Boxing Council (WBC), is ready for his big day in the lime light. Friday November 16, 2007 Figueroa will headline on Telemundo as he defends his NABF title against Mexican contender Noel Rodriguez (13 wins, 1 loss, 5 knockouts) at the Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida.

Figueroa (17 wins, 13 knockouts, 2 losses), a Nyorican who earned the moniker “King of The Bronx” after a victorious bout now known as, “The Battle From the Bronx,” against fellow Bronxite Joey “Mr.” Rios at Madison Square Garden in November of 2006, is extremely content to be fighting his first ever televised bout on the world’s second largest Hispanic Television Network.

Since beginning his professional career five years ago, Figueroa has had plenty of extremely challenging battles, both inside and outside of the ring. From being homeless in 2002 through 2003, having no management, Public Relations representation or promoter until recent, the light is finally shining down on Figueroa.

It’s been three years since the 29-year-old southpaw has seen a loss, asserting that he doesn’t plan on seeing one either. In the sport of boxing it’s no secret: many fighters, including numerous world champions have ducked and dodged their way to the top. Figueroa is a definite exception to that scandal. The draw back to not having any stable representation in his corner throughout most of his career meant facing whatever opponent brought to the table. Although many of his mismatched career fights have been face-offs with much more experienced fighters, Figueroa had no choice but to accept the challenge. “I’ve never backed down from anyone,” said Figueroa, “I have to support myself, and more importantly, my three-year-old son. So if I have to fight King Kong, so be it—it’s a challenge I’m willing to face.” Through his career challenges Figueroa has definitely become a much more experienced and aggressive fighter. Boring fights aren’t something spectators witness during any of Figueroa’s matches.

His skills have been in high demand as a chief sparring partner to some of today’s most notable boxing stars. This spring Figueroa assisted WBA champion Miguel “Angel” Cotto in preparation for his Madison Square Garden showdown against Zab Judah. He’s also lent his unique defense and offensive techniques to unbeaten English champion Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton, “Vicious” Arturo “Thunder” Gatti , Vivian Harris and several other fighters who all beat their opponents subsequent to their involvement with the Bronx Bomber. For Figueroa, a victory against Rodriguez means one step closer to superstardom. “Rodriguez is a good fighter and I’m giving him the opportunity to fight for the belt,” said Figueroa. “I know that he’s going to apply pressure and fight forward, which is what I love--with a passion. My mother always told me, ‘never take your eyes off your opponent.’ That advice has worked very well for me.” Figueroa is also following the guidance of his new trainer, Buddy McGirt Sr. “Buddy is a great technician,” says Figueroa. “He’s sharpening me up everyday. I expect to knock Rodriguez out cold!”

Figueroa made the exact same promise prior to his last fight on July 28 against Ubaldo Hernandez, who he knocked through the ropes in the twelfth round as Hernandez laid on the floor unconscious for nearly five minutes. That guarantee might have applied to his previous opponent, Julio llido on April 13, who said “No Mas!” and threw in the towel in round 4. That knockout promise was also granted on March 22, when Figueroa fought 44 fight veteran Antonio Ramirez who collapsed in the third round. “I plan on giving the fans what they love,” he says confidently. “I’m always good for that. November 16 is a date that fight fans around the world don’t want to miss. Count on it!”

James McGirt, Jr. Looks For a Big 2008

VERO BEACH, Florida – Slowly but surely, fight by fight, unbeaten super middleweight prospect James McGirt, Jr. (18-0, 9 KOs) is breaking from the long shadow cast by his father/trainer, former two-time world champion and 2002 Trainer of the Year James “Buddy” McGirt, and establishing his own identity in the ring.

The younger McGirt, fresh off of his workman-like win by unanimous eight-round decision (79-73 three times) on October 30 against Canadian light heavyweight champion Jason “Notorious” Naugler (17-7-1, 11 KOs), plans to breakout in 2008, capturing some regional titles, moving up in the ratings, and positioning himself for a future world title shot.

“I’m 18-0 now and will start fighting 10-rounders against ‘name’ fighters next year,” the stylish southpaw said. “It’s been a childhood dream for me to be fighting in big arenas and it’s coming true. I just beat a tough guy (Naugler) and now I have to take full advantage of the situation. You know, after the fight, he (Naugler) told me that he wanted to beat Buddy McGirt’s son. Even if my opponent is 1-99, he’s going to fight like he’s 99-1. My dad told me that before my pro debut. He said they’re trying to beat you and me.”

McGirt’s manager, Dennis Witherow, believes that James will make a name for himself in 2008. “He’ll definitely be fighting a 10-rounder after the first of the year,” he added. “We’ve been taking it slow. He’ll keep moving up, fighting better opponents, and we’re working to get him rated higher. James will be in the gym working on minor things, not major things anymore, and we want to keep him quick and strong.”

McGirt cracked the ratings and is gradually ascending, currently No. 32 in the WBC, as well as No. 10 by the USBA and NABF, No. 14 by the NABO and No. 15 by the NABA.

Despite fighting the likes of current WBA light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson and WBA junior middleweight title-holder Joachin Alcine, Naugler has never been stopped and he showed why against McGirt.

“I was very happy with James’ performance,” Buddy remarked. “He trained to do one thing but, when his opponent kept pressing and cutting off the ring, James had to switch mid-stream and fight. He averaged more than 100 punches a round for eight rounds. I thought Naugler was going to take a knee a few different times because James hit him with some vicious body shots.”

“Naugler wouldn’t let me box,” James admitted. “He really brought it and I had to stand and fight. I had to re-evaluate what I was doing against him. My father wanted me to box, but I told him (Buddy) that he (Naugler) was fighting, and I had to fight. I loved it because I’m learning and getting better in the process. I was fighting a guy who really came to fight.”

After the fight, Vernon Forrest (being trained by Buddy for a Dec. 1 fight) welcomed James to professional boxing, meaning everything doesn’t always go as planned in higher level fights, and James did a good job making adjustments during the fight.

“James is ready,” Buddy noted. “James has been in with different types of styles this year. Lou (James’ promoter Lou DiBella) has done a good job getting opponents. He’s gotten us veterans, punchers, boxers, guys that don’t hit too much, and others who put on non-stop pressure like Naugler.”

Team McGirt figures to parlay what James has learned in 2007 into a breakout year in 2008. “We thought Naugler would give us rounds and we got what we expected,” Witherow concluded. “James has been working with a strength and conditioning coach and it is beginning to show. I thought he had Naugler down a few times. He can really take a punch. James put together 5-6 punch combinations that rocked Naugler a few times. He just wouldn’t go down. It was a good fight.”

Jimmy Doherty, Scott Miller Ready To Rise

Impact Boxing’s young duo of Jimmy Doherty and Scott Miller have declared their desire to follow the examples set by the camp’s senior professionals and to challenge for major honors in the next two years.

Tunstall based welterweight Doherty now unbeaten in his first six pro starts has already announced his intention to challenge for the Midlands Area title in the next few months but is now setting his sights even higher.

“So far this year Scott Lawton and Chris Edwards have fought for British and Commonwealth titles and Gary Reid has fought for a Commonwealth title,” said Doherty. “Chris Edwards is fighting for a British title again in December and the excitement in and around the gym helps to spur us all on.”

“When you start in any sport as a youngster you always dream of reaching the pinnacle but it seems so far away. The achievements of Scott, Chris and Gary have made it real for me now and I now believe that with their help I can reach the top level in British boxing.”

“Not only does their success help to motivate me but they are all now able to give me help and advice and I’d be a fool not to follow it.”

“I’m due to be fighting Gavin Tate at the Kings Hall on 17th November and I’ll be stepping up to eight rounds and topping the bill for the first time. I think that I’m ready and so do my coaches; if I’m going to fight for titles I need to get the experience over longer distances.”

“Tait’s a decent opponent and has won his last three fights, he also has three KO’s to his name. I know that I will need to impress against him if I am going to be taken as a serious contender so my fans should expect something special on the night.”

Fellow welterweight Scott Miller, who makes his pro debut on the same bill, won 21 of his 25 amateur contests with the Hulton Abbey club. Miller has an exciting come forward style and has been tipped to go far in the pro ranks.

“I’m excited about making my debut particularly since it has been delayed since September because of injuries to me and Jimmy,” said Miller. “I know that it might seem a bit early for me to be talking about titles but I also want to get to the top in the sport and I’m confident that I have what it takes. I want to get busy and I would like to be challenging for titles within the next two years.”

“I’ve been watching the other lads from the sidelines and it really does make you hungry for success. The set up at Impact is fantastic and the support that you get from everyone connected with the gym is second to none; I’m totally satisfied that I’m in the right place to further my career.”

Doherty and Miller turn out as part of Impact Boxing’s next event which will take place at the Kings Hall, Stoke on 17th November. Local lads Scott Lawton and Alex Ibbs will join them together with the highly rated Chester duo of Kevin Buckley and Chris Goodwin on a six-fight card. Tickets priced £25 and £45 with special discounted prices of £10 for under 14’s are available from Impact Boxing on 0845 156 7168 or at Impact Boxing - The Home of British Boxing in Staffordshire

Thompson Boxing Inks Burgos, Pavel Miranda

ORANGE – Thompson Boxing Promotions is pleased to announce the signing of two highly-regarded prospects to its roster of future champions, as featherweight Juan Carlos Burgos and junior welterweight Pavel Miranda have come on board to take the next step in their assault of the elite in their respective weight classes.

“I’m pleased to have Juan Carlos and Pavel as part of the Thompson Boxing Promotions team, we’re going to do everything in our power to keep them active in the ring and on a continuous climb to a world championship,” said Ken Thompson. “Both of these young men are determined and talented, and fight fans will enjoy watching them in action every time out. At their young age they are top-notch Mexican prospects. Now the boxing world will have a chance to witness these athletes in America,” concluded Thompson.

“These two young fighters will move up in the boxing world just like Thompson Boxing Promotions.” Added Roberto Sandoval, the manager of Burgos and Miranda. “Together we are going to rise to the top,”

Juan Carlos BURGOS (15-0, 13 KOs), the nephew of former world champion Victor Burgos, is a native of Tijuana who is rapidly showing that fistic prowess definitely runs in the family. A pro since 2004, the 19-year-old is already the WBC featherweight Continental Americas champion, and he has shown an uncanny ability to box or bang once the bell rings.

Also hailing from Tijuana, 20-year-old Pavel MIRANDA (16-1, 10 KOs) has rebounded from a controversial split decision loss in his seventh fight to reel off ten straight wins that included six knockouts. In May, Miranda took home his first pro title – the Interim WBC Youth junior welterweight title - with a ten round decision win over previously unbeaten Miguel Zuniga, and in his last fight on September 16th, Miranda stopped Francisco Gil in three rounds.

Burgos and Miranda join a stellar Thompson Boxing Promotions roster that contains fellow prospects Timothy Bradley (21-0, 11 KOs), Josesito Lopez (22-2, 13 KOs), Yonnhy Perez (14-0, 11 KOs), Dominic Salcido (15-0, 8 KOs) and Sergio Espinoza (14-4-1, 5 KOs).

Robert Guerrero Back Home After KO Win

After his spectacular first round knockout over Martin Honorio, two-time world champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero has spent the last couple of days at the hospital, helping his wife Casey and wants to thank those who continue to keep her in prayer. Guerrero declares that his wife is feeling better and is happy with the way the prognosis coming along as he stated, "She was happy to see me when I arrived back to her room. With all the support and prayers from family, friends, fans and media, she continues to improve." The Ghost will continue to stay by his wife's side and urges everyone to keep Casey in prayer.

When talking about his future in boxing, Guerrero mentioned, "I believe the featherweight and super featherweight divisions are loaded with several mega-fights. I would love to get in the ring with Pacquioa, Marquez, Barrera or any of the champions at 126 (featherweight). The fans deserve to see the best fight the best, so my motto is, lets give it to them."

Reggie Johnson Vows To KO Glen Johnson

Former champion Reggie Johnson battles former champion Glen Johnson in the "Fight Night for Climate Change" Pay-per-View extravaganza on November 17, from the Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles, Louisiana

Before you laugh off former middleweight and light heavyweight champion "Sweet" Reggie Johnson's chances in his upcoming fight against Glen Johnson, you really need to speak to William Guthrie.

In 1998, Reggie Johnson had boxed less than a round in three years when he signed to face then-IBF Light Heavyweight Champion Guthrie, who was an undefeated knockout artist with growing reputation as one of boxing's most powerful new champions.

Guthrie left on a stretcher. Johnson left with a new belt around his waist.

And when he battles former world champion and red-hot IBF #1-rated contender Glengoffe Johnson on November 17 at the Burton Coliseum in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Reggie (43-7-1, 25 KOs) says he's going to do it again.

"I have never officially retired," explains the 41-year-old Johnson, whose only ring appearance in the past five years was a ninth round knockout over respectable veteran Fred Moore last July. "I'm better physically and mentally than I was when I was 25. My sparring partners, doctors, and trainers will assure you of that. On November 17, I will be at my best. I've been in 21 title fights, so my experience will be the key to pulling off one the biggest upsets in the last decade."

In his 23-year career, Johnson says he's seen better versions of Glen Johnson and already knows how to handle him. "I see a lot of holes in Glen's game; I was at his last two fights. When I turned pro in 1984, I was 17 years old and my first big job was sparring with (former feared middleweight contender) Wilford Scypion to get him ready for Frank Fletcher and Marvin Hagler. Wilford made you work every second of every round. I already know that my style beats his."

With a wealth of experience that includes three successful title defenses at middleweight, two at light heavyweight, as well as a controversial defeat to a prime James Toney in 1991, Reggie Johnson says he has spent the last 5 years training the other parts of his life. "I've been working on being a better man of God, a better father, son, and friend, plus a better businessman outside the ring. I have also been doing a lot of community work with the kids in Houston."

Reinvigorated and determined to climb back to the top of the light heavyweight division, Johnson claims a victory over Glen Johnson won't be enough. "Glen is the toughest in the division, so I will be smart early and put rounds in the bank, but after the fifth or sixth round, I will do what Tarver, Jones, and a host of other fighters could not do and that is knock him out."

On paper, Reggie Johnson would seem a heavy underdog going into his fight with Glen Johnson. But somewhere in Florida is an ex-champion who knows how dangerous "Sweet" Reggie is, no matter how long he's been gone.

Coming from a long layoff with the odds stacked against him in a fight the whole world will be watching -- Reggie Johnson isn't fazed. He already knows the way home from there.

Fight Night for Climate Change is brought to you by Trinity World Boxing Promotions, Green Planet Mobile, Seminole Warriors Boxing, Coondog Productions, Keeppunching Media and Marketing, and Impact Marketing.
