LOS ANGELES, December 14 – Two of female boxing’s best, Mexican star Mariana “Barbie” Juarez and Japan’s Tenkai Tsunami, will take center stage at the Arena Coliseo in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico on Saturday, December 15 for a clash of former world champions to be featured on FOX Deportes in the United States.

Plus, highly-regarded middleweight prospect Bruno “Tiburon” Sandoval faces a tough task in his 12 round WBC USNBC title defense against Alberto “La Mosca” Martinez.

Juarez vs. Tsunami, a 10 round super flyweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and is sponsored by Corona. The FOX Deportes broadcast will air on Sunday, December 16 at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT.

A boxing beauty who knocks opponents out in the ring with her fists and everyone else outside of it with her looks, Mariana Juarez (35-6-3, 16 KO’s) is considered by many to be the greatest female fighter ever produced by Mexico. She is a former WBC world champion who held her crown for over three years and made 14 defenses before losing the belt to Ava Knight in October. The 32-year-old Juarez, who has also appeared in the Mexican edition of Playboy magazine, will begin her comeback on December 15 and is determined to wear championship gold again.

Tokyo’s Tenkai Tsunami (18-5, 7 KO’s) is no stranger to fighting elite competition, as she held the WBA world championship at super flyweight from 2009 to 2012, defending the title four times. In 2012, the seven-year veteran and Japanese female boxing pioneer fell short of victory in bouts against Naoko Yamaguchi and Janeth Perez, but she can end the year on a high note with a win over Juarez.

Unbeaten in 10 professional fights, Bruno “Tiburon” Sandoval (10-0, 9 KO’s) is a hard-hitting and exciting up-and-comer who has become a specialist in the art of the knockout. A pro since 2011, Sandoval has ripped through his opposition, going the distance just once, against 4-0 Eduardo Tercero in 2011. On November 3, Sandoval met Tercero a second time and in the rematch, he knocked his foe out in the fifth round to win the vacant WBC USNBC title that he will defend this weekend.

23-year-old Alberto “La Mosca” Martinez (20-7, 12 KO’s) has kept a busy schedule since his debut in 2009 and in 2012 alone he has already stepped into the ring eight times. Currently riding a three-fight winning streak that includes an October technical knockout win over Alberto Gutierrez, the native of Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, Mexico is prepared for a tough battle on Saturday against Sandoval.

First Havoc Boxing World Title Challenger Undefeated cruiserweight Santander Silgado Challenges Denis Lebedev for WBA title this weekend in Russia

BROOKLYN (December 10, 2012) – Undefeated contender Santander “Cha Cha” Silgado (23-0, 18 KOs) will become Havoc Boxing Promotions’ first world title challenger when he takes on World Boxing Association (WBA) cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (24-1, 18 KOs) this Saturday night (December 17) in Russia. Team Silgado departed today for Moscow

Boxing clothing line giant Havoc Boxing is internationally known for creating and marketing its flashy, colorful trunks, robes and corner jackets, showcased by high-profile boxers such as unbeaten WBA Super and World Boxing Council (WBC) light welterweight champion Danny Garcia, newly crowned WBC lightweight title-holder Adrien Broner, and two-time World Champion Andre Berto, as well as past U.S. Olympians, Demetrius Andrade and Sadam Ali.

Havoc Boxing Promotions, however, is also a licensed New York boxing promoter and Silgado represents its first boxer in a world title fight. “People think of New York City boxing promoters as Lou DiBella and Joe DeGuardia,” Silgado’s promoter Rob Diaz (Havoc Boxing Promotions CEO) said, “but there are also a lot of other boxing promoters here like Havoc Boxing. At this stage for Havoc Boxing to have a fighter in a world title fight is huge, especially when Santander wins to become a world champion, elevating Havoc Boxing into that elite level in New York City boxing.”

Silgado, a seven-time National amateur champion in his native Colombia, Santander had nearly 200 amateur fights. Now fighting out of Brooklyn, WBC No. 6-rated Silgado is the reigning WBC FECARBOX and WBA Fedelatin cruiserweight champion.

Because most of his professional fights have been in South America – four of his last five have been in the U.S. – Silgado remains one of the best kept secrets in boxing, despite him knocking out 18 of his 23 opponents.

Trained by former world champion Kosta Tszyu, Lebedev has defeated future Hall of Famers James Toney and Roy Jones Jr., in addition to former world champion Enzo Maccarinelli and former European champion Alexander Alekseev. Lebedev’s lone loss as a professional was by a controversial 12-round split decision in 2010 to World Boxing Organization (WBO) cruiserweight titlist Marco Huck.

A year ago, Lebedev captured the interim WBA crown with a 12-round “shutout” decision over Toney, and he successfully defended that title this past April with a second-round knockout of Shawn Cox. The WBA eventually promoted Lebedev, who is ranked No. 4 by The Ring Magazine, to its World Champion when it downgraded Guillermo Jones to its “Champion in Recess.”

Silgado heading to Russia to take on Lebedev is like the Rocky IV storyline, in which, Rocky Balboa fought Ivan Drago, only this real fight features an unbeaten, Colombian Rocky.

“People don’t know too much about Santader Silgado because he’s not really battle-tested,” Diaz admitted. “The Russian has fought Toney, Jones and Huck. He has crushing power and Kosta Tszyu in his corner. And we’re going to Russia to fight him over there. I can tell you we weren’t too popular over there for the press conference and I don’t expect that to change before December 17th.

“Silgado hasn’t been in a fight of this magnitude, so I don’t know how he’ll respond, but we hope to turn the crowd’s energy to Santander’s advantage. We’ll see what type of fighter he is that night. I see him out-boxing the Russian and possibly knocking him out. That’s the game plan in place.”

Super Welterweight Miguel Cotto in front of 13,096 in his 6th fight at Madison Square Garden fell short with a victory only for World Champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout to come into a hostile NYC and go toe to toe fighting his heart out against Miguel Cotto In witch who have seemed to me distracted in his campaign to go after Trout WBA title.

Cotto jumped in early to try to make a fight coming forward and slugging with the taller fighter Trout who seemly went from fighting tall to his early success to fight Cotto’s fight.

Rt:1 Cotto taking a lot of strieght jabs to Trout who starts off fighting tall witch was smart early in the fight. Trout landed a nice left hook that backs up Cotto who jumped right back in the attack Trout. Rd:2 Trout fighting very slick seemly Cotto continues to be aggressive and get inside but Trout just fighting him off with the jab.

Rd:3 Cotto standing in front of Trout trying to get in big shots, I like what Cotto appears to be doing stepping closer pressuring Trout who shooting the lead right to the body of Cotto.

Rd:4 Trout opens up with an attack on Cotto who continues to score combinations inside both fighters trade shots in the center of the ring, Cotto I’m not sure if he trying to Land the money punch on Trout but appears Trout getting a little less alert on the inside by taking shots flush.

Rt:5 interesting so Cotto getting closer to Trout who appears to be fighting Cotto fight right now, Cotto smothering Trout with good shots catches Trout with a hard left Trout retaliates and hits Cotto low takes the warning from the referee. Cotto cruses in the round.

Rd:6 Cotto came over the top with a great right hand that sends Trout back, Trout steps in Cotto hits him with nice combination in the inside, Trout showing his will in the round but went away from the jab that was working so effectively, Trout would come back whack Cotto with a nice hard hook to the head then grab him.

Rd: 7 Still a very technical fight Trout making things happen coming over the top on Cotto who appears to be taking more shots in this round, Trout very effective in the round went back to fighting tall Cotto showing signs of ware ness.

Rd:8 Trout landing really big shots on Cotto, Trying to make a statement in the fight he getting off first.

Rd:9 Cotto wrestling with Trout who landed a low blow on Cotto who’s punches have slowed down a bit but continues to come forward, trout working harder landing quicker shots right now Cotto needs to put on the pressure to win this fight.

Rd:10 Trout stepping on the gas making his statement in the fight by picking his shots the slower Cotto got hit with a big shot followed up with a body shot, Cotto came back with a sense of urgency attack on Trout.

Rd:11 Trout fighting a very relaxed and smart fight landing great shots on Cotto who just not doing enough to make a case, showing signs of being worn down Cotto still comes forward attacking Trout.

Rd:12 Trout more effective from fighting at distance Cotto jumping in trying to land Trout cutting the ring just trying to close out the round to me it appears that Cotto Just didn’t have enough at the stretch, Trout really needs to work on constantly dropping that right hand after he throws exchanges Cotto defiantly took advantage of it through the fight with nice hooks upstairs I looked for the Cotto body assault that just was not there un the fight Referee Charlie Fitch worked like he was doing a PAL fight It was not at the level it should have been for this match up.

Austin Trout holds on to his title wins the unanimous decision 117-111, 117-111 & 119-109 on judges score cards I hade it 114-114 a draw on press row.
