Looks for Biggest Fights in Second Half of 2019

New York, NY (May 30, 2019) Women’s boxing superstar Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano (36-1-1, 27 KOs) has been named the “Athlete of the Year” by the 62nd Annual National Puerto Rican Day Parade Committee ahead of their famed annual parade on Sunday, June 9, in New York City.

Winner of world titles in a record seven weight divisions, Serrano is overwhelmed with excitement by the honor.

“The Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City is the biggest day of the year for me to celebrate my homeland. For many years, my family and I have attended and to be recognized in this manner for my accomplishments means a great deal to me,” said Serrano.

An estimated three million spectators are expected to watch the demonstration of ethnic and cultural pride as the parade makes its way up Fifth Avenue.

Among the other honorees at the parade will be nine-time Grammy award-winning musician Jose Feliciano and seven-time baseball All-Star Edgar Martinez.

The Brooklyn-based Serrano is coming off of a sensational performance on January 18 with a devastating first-round knockout of Eva Voraberger earning the vacant WBO Jr. Bantamweight World Title. The record-setting world title victory came in Serrano’s seventh different weight class, a feat never previously accomplished by a female fighter.

Stated promoter Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment, “This is a great honor for Amanda and we’re very proud to have promoted her throughout her historic run of world titles in seven weight divisions. She is very proud of her Puerto Rican heritage and well deserving of this recognition. We’re currently working on some big plans for her return to the ring this summer and later in the year.”

“Amanda has worked very hard to attain the status that she has as one of the very best female fighters in boxing in addition to her accomplishments in mixed martial arts,” said her longtime trainer and manager Jordan Maldonado. “We are very interested in watching Katie Taylor this Saturday in her attempt to become the undisputed champion in the lightweight division. If she is successful, there is no bigger fight in women’s world boxing than a fight with Amanda.

“We’re looking to get back in the ring in the summer and build toward the fight with Katie Taylor later this year. Amanda and I will also be cageside in support of featherweight boxing champion Heather Hardy on June 14 at Bellator 222. We’ve known Heather for many years and if she is successful on June 14, a boxing match with Amanda has been talked about recently, which would be a very big fight in New York City.”

Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko has been honored with the Lightweight Super Champion belt by the World Boxing Organization (WBO).

“Vasyl Lomachenko [has been] honored with [the] Lightweight Super Champion Belt at @trboxing presser for Loma v. Crolla on @espn,” the WBO wrote on Twitter on April 10, 2019.

The Super Champion title gives Lomachenko the right to claim the WBO belt in any weight category. The owner of such a trophy can also get immediate revenge if he loses in the fight for the championship belt. Lomachenko’s next fight against British boxer Anthony Crolla will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the United States, on April 12, 2019.

It is time for business. Marco Huck’s (38-2-1, 26 KOs) preparations for his upcoming fight are well and truly under way. The reigning WBO Cruiserweight Champion will take on Krzyzstof Glowacki (24-0, 15 KOs) from Poland on August 14th. It will be the first time that the two Europeans have fought on American soil, when they step into the ring at the Prudential Center Newark, New Jersey. And to ensure that defense number 14 will be as successful as his previous fights, the 30-year-old has chosen to hold his camp under the burning sun of Nevada.

“I have been in Las Vegas since June 25th”, said Huck. “I used the first weekend to adjust to the nine hour time difference, however my coach and I began working full on last Monday.”

Although the champion has been outside of the ring for almost a year his fitness is proving to be no problem at all. “I have kept myself fit over the last ten months to ensure that I don’t lose my stamina, hence I was able to get back into the training rhythm immediately. The only thing that is exerting at the moment is the intense heat. Temperatures rise to 113 degrees during the day and even when the sun sets and I go for a run with my coach, it is still 98 degrees. I am drinking more than eight liters (two gallons) of water a day.”

The current WBO-Super-Champion is convinced that the extreme circumstances of his training camp will pay off. “I doubt that a lot of European fighters would opt to come to the dessert to prepare themselves. But I am certain that the burning sun and the dry dessert will add to my firepower which Glowacki will ultimately get to feel come August 14th.

GENERAL SANTOS CITY – Revered Filipino boxing superstar Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao who has just returned to the Philippines after a 3-week hectic tour that brought him to New York, Los Angeles, London, Miami and Washington, received his WBO super champion belt from WBO Vice-President for Asia-Pacific region Leon Panoncillo Jr Tuesday night here at Pacquiao’s sprawling residence-complex.

The $10,000 WBO super champion belt embedded with swarovski crystals and diamonds. 



The $10,000 worth diamond-encrusted custom-designed belt was awarded by the WBO to Pacquiao after the world’s only 8-division world champion and the WBO champion of the decade wrested back his welterweight crown from Timothy Bradley on April 12, 2014. According to Panoncillo, WBO president Francisco ‘Paco’ Valcarcel wanted to have the belt given to Pacquiao earlier but scheduling conflict and Pacquiao’s hectic lifestyle contributed to the delay.

WBO Vice-President Leon Panoncillo Jr (L) handed the belt to WBO super champion Manny Pacquiao at Pacquiao’s residence in General Santos City. 



A super champion is a rare recognition given by the WBO, one of the world’s top governing bodies of boxing, to its champions who have achieved preeminent status while holding the championship belt. The WBO’s current super champions include heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko of Ukraine, junior heavyweight champion Marco Huck of Germany and light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev of Russia.

“This is great for the unification!,” Pacquiao, who has tendered a dinner for the WBO and selected guests, blurted out upon receiving the belt to the amusement of everyone present knowing that an elephant in the room – the highly desired and highly anticipated Pacquiao-Mayweather welterweight unification bout for the WBC and WBO belts – casts its huge shadow. Pacquiao later enthralled everyone by discussing the details of his one-on-one meeting with Mayweather and the many details of the ongoing negotiation. “But this is off the record,” he said.

MANILA, Philippines – World Boxing Organization (WBO) president Francisco Valcarcel welcomes a rematch between Filipino champ Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and welterweight champion Timothy Bradley Jr.

Bradley won the WBO welterweight belt off Pacquiao when he defeated the Filipino boxer via a contentious split decision in June 2012.

“It’s one of the great battles that can happen this year,” Valcarcel told Boxing Scene of a potential Pacquiao-Bradley rematch.

“The controversy of the first fight makes it very interesting, adding to the fact that they are great fighters, and Bradley is a great champion. Pacquiao needs no introduction,” he added. “It is a fight that cannot be missed.”

According to Top Rank chief executive Bob Arum, the terms of the rematch has yet to be finalized, although they are working with both camps to iron out the details.

Valcarcel believes Bradley is the best option among Pacquiao’s options, which also included Russian brawler Ruslan Provodnikov.

“Among the options that were being considered, this is the most interesting,” said the WBO president. “They had a rematch clause in the contract for his fight and both belong to the same promoter.”

Pacquiao returns to the ring on April 12.

Known as “The Steel Hammer,” Klitschko first achieved world attention at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. He defeated Paea Wolfgramm to win the Super-Heavyweight gold medal. Klitschko turned professional with Universum Box-Promotion in Hamburg under the tutelage of Fritz Sdunek. He suffered his first setback after 24 bouts without a loss to journeyman Ross Puritty, who entered the bout with a record of 24–13–1. Klitschko won the WBO Heavyweight title from American Chris Byrd. Byrd had previously upset his elder brother Vitali (who pulled out injured during their bout).

After five successful defenses of the WBO belt, but on March 2003 Klitschko suffered an upset loss to Corrie Sanders. Sanders battered Klitschko for two rounds knocking him out. After winning two minor bouts in Germany and enlisting the services of legendary boxing trainer Emmanuel Steward, Klitschko again fought for the vacated WBO title on 10 April 2004, in Las Vegas, against Lamon Brewster. Klitschko sent Brewster to the canvas in the fourth round; however, things turned around in the fifth when Brewster’s punches began backing him up. Not defending himself and leaning into ropes for support, Klitschko took a standing eight count. On unsteady legs, Klitschko went to his knees after the bell and the referee stopped the fight for his safety. Following his loss to Brewster, Klitschko began his journey back towards the top of the heavyweight division. First, he defeated DaVarryl Williamson by technical decision. He then knocked out undefeated Eliseo Castillo. Klitschko then signed to fight undefeated power puncher Samuel Peter in an IBF eliminator. The much anticipated bout proved to be hugely entertaining. It went some way towards redeeming Klitschko in the heavyweight division.

Though Peter scored three knockdowns (two in round 5, one in round 10) Klitschko withstood the Nigerian’s power and went on to dominate for long periods. He even rocked Peter in the final round. The win against Peter showed that Klitschko was capable of defeating power punchers. On 22 April 2006, in Mannheim, Germany, Klitschko again defeated Chris Byrd by TKO and won the IBF Heavyweight title. Klitschko then avenged one of his previous losses as he defeated Lamon Brewster in July 2007. Klitschko later defeated WBO Heavyweight Champion Sultan Ibragimov at Madison Square Garden in New York City on 23 February 2008 to unify the IBF and WBO heavyweight titles. On 12 July 2008, Klitschko defeated Tony Thompson by KO in the eleventh round. Klitschko was scheduled to defend his titles against Alexander Povetkin later in 2008,[6] but on 25 October, Povetkin withdrew from the fight due to an ankle injury. Instead, Klitschko faced Hasim Rahman on 13 December 2008 and won by TKO.

Rahman seemed unable to withstand Klitschko’s punch power. The referee finally called a stop to the one-sided contest in the 7th round after Rahman failed to respond to a series of good shots. Klitschko was scheduled to face David Haye who pulled out within weeks of the fight complaining of a back injury. Salvaging the 20 June 2009 date and venue, Klitschko instead retained the IBF, WBO, IBO world heavyweight titles and also won the vacant Ring Magazine heavyweight title by defeating replacement opponent and Ring #3 ranked Ruslan Chagaev when Chagaev retired after an onslaught of punches towards the end of the ninth round. As Chagaev was WBA champion in recess, the title was not on the line.

Klitschko’s win over Chagaev was seen as one of his most impressive performances in the ring. In December 2009, Klitschko defeated Chambers by KO five seconds before the end of the final round. Following the match with Chambers, a unification fight between Klitschko and David Haye, who as of May 2009 held the WBA title, appeared to be in the offing. Both sides began negotiations for a potential fight and the bout was targeted for September. The fight did not materialize and Klitschko took on mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin. The bout between Klitschko and Povetkin was tentatively scheduled to take place in Frankfurt, Germany, on September 2010. In July 2010, it was confirmed that the bout would be taking place in Frankfurt. However, Povetkin backed out of the $2 million purse fight. Samuel Peter replaced

Povetkin for the scheduled fight. Peter fought Klitschko on 11 September 2010, for the Ukrainian’s IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles. Klitschko won again, by knocking out Peter in the 10th round. Klitschko was set to fight Dereck Chisora on 11 December, but the fight was later called off on 8 December due to a Klitschko injury. On 5 January 2011, it was announced that Dereck Chisora would get his fight with Klitschko. The fight against Dereck Chisora was rescheduled for 30 April 2011. However, on 4 March, it was announced Klitschko pulled out of the fight. On 5 March, it announced that the fight against David Haye will take place on 2 July 2011. Klitschko fought David Haye in a heavyweight unification fight for the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO and The Ring heavyweight titles. The fight took place at the Imtech Arena, Hamburg, Germany on 2 July 2011. Klitschko dominated the fight from the start. Klitschko won by unanimous decision.
