El WBO # 2 Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) está seguro de que tiene el poder de lastimar y forzar un gran triunfo sobre la leyenda del boxeo y actual campeón mundial welter de la OMB, Manny Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs) cuando se enfrenten el 23 de abril en un lugar por determinar, pero muy posible será el Suncorp Stadium en Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, que tiene capacidad para 55.000 aficionados.

“Sé que tengo el poder de lastimar a Manny”, dijo Horn a Fox Sports. “Él ha sido derribado y ha sido eliminado y soy de golpes muy fuertes, así que creo que tengo una oportunidad real de traer el título mundial a Australia”.

Pacquiao sufrió una derrota por nocaut ante Juan Márquez en 2012, pero desde entonces ha logrado impresionantes victorias sobre Brandon Ríos, Timothy Bradley, Chris Algieri y Jessie Vargas. Manny perdio una decisión de doce asaltos a Floyd Mayweather en 2015.

Rob Brant stops Alexis Hloros in first round

By Francisco Salazar

Middleweight standout Rob Brant returned to action Friday night, stopping Alexis Hloros in the opening round of their main event before a crowd of more than 3,000 at the Grand Casino in Hinckley, Minnesota.

With the win, Brant improves to 22-0, with 15 knockouts. Hloros drops to 18-6-2, 12 KOs.

It was all Brant from the opening bell, putting Hloros on the defensive with multiple combinations to the head and body. A left hook to the body dropped Hloros to the canvas. Hloros was able to get up at the count of nine, but was in no condition to continue.

Official time of the stoppage was 2:53.

Friday was Brant’s fourth consecutive knockout win. Originally from nearby St. Paul, Brant trains in the Dallas area with coach Derrick James, who also trains unbeaten welterweight Errol Spence.

Brant is ranked No. 3 by the WBA and No. 5 by the WBO.

Also on the Greg Cohen Promotions card, hard-hitting junior middleweight Skender Halili stopped Romon Barber in the fifth round.

Halili, who has now won his last five bouts, improves to 13-1, 13 KOs. Barber falls to 7-13, 6 KOs.

Utilizing a five-inch height advantage, Halili rained punches down on Barber. Halili also connected with vicious uppercuts, which Barber absorbed well. As the fight progressed, Halili’s punches began to take their toll as Barber’s punch output decreased.

An uppercut from Halili in Round 5 staggered Barber backwards into the ropes. Halili let his punches go on a defenseless Barber until the referee stepped in and stopped the bout.

Halili’s aggressive and hard-hitting style makes for fun fights. Round 2 of his May 27 clash with Jason Thompson, where Halili was dropped twice before winning by knockout in the same round, was voted as The Round of the Year for 2016 by The Ring magazine.

Undercard results:

Junior lightweight Duarn Vue (11-0-2, 4 KOs) stopped Lance Williams (7-7, 7 KOs) in the second round.

Junior welterweight DeLorien Caraway won a six round majority decision over Deonte Wilson (5-2, 3 KOs). One judge scored the bout 57-57, while the other two judges scored the bout 59-55 and 58-56 in favor of Caraway, who improves to 8-1, 5 KOs.

Horn: I can hurt Pacquiao

By Togorashi

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBO #2 Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) is confident he has the power to hurt and force a stoppage over boxing legend and WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (59-6-2, 38 KOs) when they clash on April 23 at a location that has yet to be decided but most likely will be the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia that holds 55,000 fans.

“I know I have the power to hurt Manny,” said Horn to Fox Sports. “He’s been knocked down and he’s been knocked out and I’m a heavy puncher so I believe I have a real chance to bring the world title to Australia.”

Pacquiao suffered a knockout loss to Juan Marquez in 2012 but has since scored impressive victories over Brandon Rios, Timothy Bradley, Chris Algieri and Jessie Vargas. Manny dropped a twelve round decision to Floyd Mayweather in 2015.

Horn is coming off a stoppage victories over former world champions Ali Funeka in December and Randall Bailey last April.

Frampton-Santa Cruz II, Vargas-Berchelt, more: Boxing fight times and TV schedule for January 27-28

By Scott Christ

It’s a bigger weekend again for boxing, with good fights on both Showtime and HBO.

Friday, January 27

UniMás, 11:00 pm ET, Erick De Leon vs Jose Salinas, Arnold Barboza Jr vs Johnny Rodriguez. Pretty typical Solo Boxeo card of modern days, which is to say you can comfortably ignore it unless you’re dying to see De Leon beat up an overmatched opponent.

Saturday, January 28

frampton santa cruz 2 banner

SHO Extreme, 8:00 pm ET, Lee Selby vs Jonathan Victor Barros, David Benavidez vs Sherali Mamajonov. The IBF featherweight belt is on the line in Selby-Barros, and if Selby and Carl Frampton both win on Saturday, it seems reasonable that they’d fight later this year in the United Kingdom in a unification bout. Benavidez is a rising power puncher and worth tuning in to see. BLH will have live coverage.

SHO, 10:00 pm ET, Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz II, Dejan Zlaticanin vs Mikey Garcia. We’ve got a great rematch main event and Mikey Garcia coming for a 135 pound title in the co-feature. Nothing to complain about here. BLH will have live coverage.

HBO/BoxNation, 10:00 pm ET, Francisco Vargas vs Miguel Berchelt, Takashi Miura vs Mickey Roman. Both of these have action potential. Vargas has proven an action star, and Berchelt can bang, too, so that one could be a lot of fun. As for Miura-Roman, Roman really only knows one way to fight, and he does it pretty well, and Miura is not against throwing down himself. This may not have the big fight relevance of Frampton-Santa Cruz II, but these are good fights, too. Overall, it’s a terrific night of boxing on paper. It’s just too bad the cards are head-to-head. But we’ll be here for both. BLH will have live coverage.
