EXCLUSIVE TEAM LEFTJAB INTERVIEW WITH THE ICEMAN JOHN SCULLY-DISCUSSES ALL HOT TOPICS IN BOXING

JOHN SCULLY

 

1. What were your thoughts on Frampton vs Santa Cruz 2 and was it good enough the second time around to warrant a trilogy?

ICE: I thought it was a good showing and based on how both of their fights went down, I don’t think many would argue if the trilogy comes off. A good fight is a good fight. Back in the Golden Years of boxing it was always a thing where any time two guys got together to make for an exceptionally good fight the promoters always did it again, sometimes three or four times. I don’t think either of these guys can exactly claim ownership over the other one yet either so, yes, I’ll go in for the trilogy.

2. With Mikey Garcia knocking out Dejan Zlaticanin impressively, are you surprised at how good Garcia has looked since coming back from such a long layoff?

ICE: A little bit, yeah. I mean, he’s always been a good fighter but not many guys come off of significant layoffs looking quite as good as he has. And that knockout was a KO Of The Year type shot so he certainly came back and made a splash in doing so. He’s right back in the mix, no questions asked and my feeling now is that sooner or later he and Lomachenko are definitely going to cross paths.

3. Mikey Garcia has said that if he is offered Lomanchenko at 135 he will take the fight… How do you see this fight going if it was to happen?

ICE: I think it’s a must see type of fight, definitely. I really like Garcia but the way it is sometimes, certain guys are just all wrong for you, style wise. The way Lomachenko has been looking I feel like he’s got a little too much command of the ring, too much versatility for most guys. But at the same time, Mikey presents a great name and added pressure for Lomachenko to perform at that level against. One of the best fights out there to be made today, definitely.

4. What are your thoughts on yet another Deontay Wilder opponent Andrzej Wawrzyk testing positive for steroids and Gerald Washington getting the shot at Wilder now.

ICE: Well, personally, I’m pretty much sick of all these guys getting busted with the juice. They may not realize or they simply may not even care but they are all contributing to putting a huge black mark on boxing’s name. Every last one of them. The powers that be need to make a stand and drop the hammer harshly on every last one of these guys. Huge suspensions at the very least. Permanent banishment for a repeat offender. This cannot be tolerated, I do’nt care who it is. From 4 round fighters to the elite in the game. I want to see them drop a hammer on every last one of them.

5. Adrien Granados takes on Adrian Broner in 2 weeks. How dangerous of a fight is this for Broner?

ICE: To be honest, I don’t know that much about Granados other than he had a very solid win over Amir Imam a few months ago. Based off of that I am sure he’s very capable. Broner is very skilled, though, and strictly on paper and perception, I’m going to figure he’s going to be a little too fast for this kid.

6. Jeff Horn gets the shot at Manny Pacquiao next. With likely only a few fights left in his career, do you agree with his decision to fight basically an unknown fighter in Australia?

ICE: I liken it to several other great fighters in history who, towards the end of their career, sort of embarked on world tours. Ali did it and traveled to Japan and Ireland among other places. Pacquiao at this stage of the game is a world figure, not just simply a boxer anymore. It’s great for as many people to see him as possible before he calls it a day so I cant be mad about it at all. I mean, Pacman has been in with pretty steep competition for many years on end now so I cant complain if every guy he fights at this point isn’t a boxing superstar. And here’s the thing, in terms of competition, Jeff Horn is still a solid fighter and he has absolutely nothing to lose here so he could step his game up and make for a great event. Boxing isn’t just about the super fights, it’s also about giving some guys chances when the time comes that they may have not gotten otherwise. A “Rocky” scenario every once in a while is great for boxing, too.

7. When you see the tickets for Wladimir Klitschko vs Anthony Joshua sell out at a record pace for Wembley stadium (80-90k tickets sold). Why do you think the American boxing fans don’t support their fighters the same way we see overseas fans do for their fighters?

ICE: I have always suspected that it is simply a case of in America there are so many superstars in so many other sports that dominate headlines. A champion boxer can make it big but other than guys like Ali and Leonard, if you put most star boxers in this country at a shopping mall in an average American city at the same time, say, LeBron James or Sarena Williams or one of those type stars are at one the same day, the boxer isn’t going to generally get the most attention. Having been to many different places for fights, including Germany and England, it seems to me that the average boxing star in those places is a bigger star in his home than our boxing stars are in theirs. They are also so much smaller, geographically. I mean, Germany could into the USA mainland maybe 25 times with some room to spare so that’s a huge difference in population and its sports stars spread out over each area.
8. There was some outrage at the antics of Angel Garcia at the press conference for Keith Thurman vs Danny Garcia.Did you have a problem with it or was it just promotion for the fight?

ICE: I think the father’s craziness is getting played out, you know? Now he’s actually fully crossed over to ignorant levels. It’s a terrible look for professional boxing, that’s what it really is. It’s one thing for Muhammad Ali to be half smiling when he makes jokes about you at the press conferences and its one thing for two guys to uncharacteristically get physical and then get fined after. But this guy. Every time? We have to listen to increasing ignorance levels every single time he shows up somewhere? It’s time to do something about him. He makes his son look foolish and I’m not sure the son truly realizes it. You cant just sit there time after time with a sheepish smile on your face and say “Ahh, well, that’s just my dad.” No, that’s your trainer. This is your representation and your image. In reality, that is the guy who is constantly representing you to the public. He’s more the face of Danny Garcia than Danny himself is. Not that endorsement offers were going to be pouring in but I would have to doubt that serious inquiries will come as long as this is the representation to the masses that kid has. There’s promotion and then there’s buffoonery. This is the epitome of buffoonery. Boxing needs to stop this right now and make a statement

9. Finally, Garcia and Thurman clash next month.Who wins?

ICE: This is a fight I made sure to get a ticket to see live. I’ll be there in person for that one because it’s such a great, great fight for boxing. Two undefeated young and exciting guys going head to head. That’s exactly what boxing needs more of. Let’s weed all these undefeated guys out and see who the cream is.

As far as the fight goes, I’m going with Keith. I just feel that he is the bigger man and a bit more versatile in there. He will definitely be tested and will have to be alert at all times but when push comes to shove I think he’s going to be hitting a little harder than Danny has been used to. Danny is in with someone at welterweight now, not junior welter. And a big welter at that. Someone who has no dog in him and who will be punching just as hard from 1 to 12. I’m going with Keith.

ICE

GENNADY GOLOVKIN VS CURTIS STEVENS PREDICTION

golovkin vs stevens prediction

This weekend, we finally get to see Gennady “GGG” Golovkin vs Curtis “Showtime” Stevens  in what could be a spectacular fight that proves to be a much more competitive fight than most anticipate.Many people think Golovkin will run right through Stevens but I think this fight could surprise the boxing world.

There is no doubt Golovkin has been running through his last few opponents but Stevens is at a higher level than what GGG has been facing.Golovkin destroyed Matthew Macklin and Ishida but neither fighter went into that fight confident.Ishida is a journeyman who’s only claim to fame was knocking out a very ill prepared James Kirkland and Macklin was knocked out by Sergio Martinez and heard all through the lead up that he would be knocked out again.Macklin was scared and looked it in the ring that night.He was beat before GGG even landed a punch.Stevens enters this fight confident and with massive punching power that could knock GGG out if he lands flush.We will find out if Golovkin is really a big deal Saturday night if he beats Stevens impressively.I think Stevens shocks the boxing world however!

Golovkin comes in to this fight as an 11-1 favorite but will leave with his first loss.Golovkin will land alot of shots as he usually does throughout the fight.But I don’t see his punches hurting Stevens like they did against previous opponents.This will frustrate GGG and lead him into taking more chances.Sooner or later, Stevens will connect with something huge and GGG will go down.Stevens will not win a decision in this fight because GGG will be more active but if Stevens can land some heavy shots on GGG and hurts him, this fight turns quickly.In the later rounds, Stevens will have hurt GGG and  go in for the kill on his way to a TKO stoppage very late in the fight.GGG VS Stevens will be a fight of the year candidate and surely the upset of the year fight.

PREDICTION: STEVENS BY 11TH ROUND TKO

CURTIS STEVENS:BRING THAT BELT BACK TO BK!!

Gennady Golovkin defends his WBA Middleweight title on November 2 at Madison Square Garden against Brooklyn’s own Curtis Stevens.Sevens represents a significant danger to Golovkin’s undefeated record with his massive power.Matthew Macklin has power and is a decent name but when he fought Golovkin in his last fight he was coming off  losing two of his last three fights against Sergio Martinez and Felix Sturm.Curtis Stevens is on top of his game and coming off an impressive KO win against Saul Roman.Steven’s confidence is sky high right now.It is the perfect time for him to fight Golovkin!

Nobody will dispute Golovkin’s impressive power and skill.He reminds me a bit of Sergio Martinez in that he can hit with power from every angle including awkward ones.Golovkin’s power is no joke.But neither is Stevens.Stevens power is just as notable as Golovkin.It will be interesting to see who stays standing if one of  these power shots land clean.Hopefully Stevens can bring the title back to Brooklyn!

Presented by K2 Promotions in association with Main Events and Madison Square Garden, tickets for this highly anticipated showdown will go on sale Wednesday, September 4 at the Madison Square Garden Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, Ticketmaster charge by phone (866-858-0008) and online at www.ticketmaster.com and www.thegarden.com

Gennady Golovkin

“I am happy to fight in front of the boxing fans in New York City again. Madison Square Garden is a very special place for me. I will put on my best performance and defend my titles once again in this great city.”

Curtis Stevens

“November 2nd is my turn to shine and that night I am going to be GREAT. The WBA belt is coming home to Brooklyn.”
