Donaire – Vetyeka Title Fight on HBO, May 31, at Venetian Macao

A press conference in Manila on Tuesday announced the details of Featherweight Fury – a championship event with three featherweight world title main event fights to be hosted by The Venetian® Macao on Saturday, May 31 at the Cotai Arena.

The world-class event is headlined by three spectacular featherweight title matchups: four-division world champion and 2012 Fighter of the Year NONITO “The Filipino Flash” DONAIRE will challenge World Boxing Association (WBA) undisputed featherweight world champion SIMPIWE “V12” VETYEKA; undefeated WBA world featherweight champion NICHOLAS “The Axe Man” WALTERS will defend his title against two-division world champion VIC “Raging Bull” DARCHINYAN; and undefeated International Boxing Federation (IBF) champion EVGENY “The Mexican Russian” GRADOVICH, making his third consecutive featherweight title defense at the Cotai Arena, will be battling No. 1 contender ALEXANDER MISKIRTCHIAN.

The Donaire-Vetyeka title fight will be televised on the same day in the U.S. on HBO, beginning at 4:00 p.m. ET/PT.  The telecast will also include the world super middleweight title rematch between defending champion Carl Froch and top contender George Groves, which will take place at Wembley Stadium in London.

Boxing Wishlist For 2014 – Fights to make in 2014

Well 2014 is here and after taking some days off, I’m finally back on the  grind discussing all things boxing. 2013 was a very good year for “The Sweet Science” and here’s hoping for an even better year. I hope to continue to discuss boxing on my blog as well as talk more, more, and more boxing on my Pound 4 Pound Boxing show/podcast (which will return this month). With that being said, here are a couple of news nuggets as well as what I would like to go down in boxing for this year.

Vic Darchinyan: Nonito Donaire has been exposed in his loss to Rigondeaux

We have a terrific card coming up this Saturday at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas, which will be televised Live on HBO® beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.   The telecast will open up with the two top-rated contenders — both undefeated — in the junior middleweight division fighting for the vacant WBO title and coincidentally they are both former U.S. Olympians – Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan taking on Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade; that will be followed by Nonito and Vic in their rematch; and the telecast will conclude with Roman “Rocky” Martinez defending his WBO junior lightweight title against former WBO featherweight champion, the undefeated Mikey Garcia.  Robert Garcia will have his hands full Saturday night as he will be working the corners for both Donaire and Garcia.
 
Immediately following the HBO tripleheader telecast will be the premiere of episode one of HBO Sports’ four-part all-access series “24/7: PACQUIAO/RIOS.”
 
On the call today, with multiple world championship belts between them, we have Fighter of the Year Nonito Donaire and Trainer of the Year Robert Garcia; as well as former two-division world champion Vic Darchinyan and his manager Frank Espinoza; and Hall of Fame Promoter Bob Arum on the call to talk about the show as well.
