Serendipity Leads Mohammedi to Train With Abel Sanchez

On March 14, Nadjib "The Algerian Assassin" Mohammedi (36-3, 22 KOs) will face Lee Campbell (8-1, 4 KOs) on the undercard of the Kovalev-Pascal fight in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. A roller coaster of events that brought him to this place in his career. When Nadjib defeated Anatoliy Dudchenko to secure the #1 position in the IBF, he thought his next opponent would be Bernard "The Alien" Hopkins as Hopkins' mandatory challenger. When Hopkins decided to face Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev in a unification fight for the WBO, WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight Championships, Mohammedi agreed to fight on the Hopkins-Kovalev undercard and wait to face the winner. 

Vince Caruso, Nadjib's manager said, "I told him to let Sergey win all three titles and then take the bigger fight with Kovalev. We knew defeating a 50 year old fighter would not be as prestigious as defeating the hardest puncher in boxing."

Bolton's Godding returns on Preston bill

Rick Godding’s two-year injury nightmare comes to an end on Saturday February 28 when he returns to the ring and resumes his dream of winning a Lonsdale Belt.

Unbeaten in 20 outings and due a crack at title honours, light-middleweight Godding was forced to take a sabbatical in April 2013 after shoulder injuries, and a subsequent operation, took its toll.

Now, fully rested and recuperated, Godding returns at Preston’s Guild Hall, live on VIPBOXING.TV, and reveals he is fortunate to be back and won’t waste his second-chance at glory.

Stevenson vs Bika live on CBS

Light heavyweight world champion Adonis "Superman" Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) returns to the ring Saturday, April 4 at Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City to defend his title against former super middleweight world champion Sakio "The Scorpion" Bika (32-6-3, 21 KOs). The April 4 event marks the debut of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on CBS (3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT).

"I am excited to be the headliner for first PBC event on CBS," Stevenson said. "I know Bika will stop at nothing, so the fight will be spectacular and extremely offensive-minded. I predict that Bika will lose by knockout for the first time in his career."

"After all these years fighting at 168 pounds, it was becoming increasingly difficult to make weight and that was a major factor in my defeats," Bika said. "I see no problem making the jump to light heavyweight to face Stevenson and I do not feel I'll be at a disadvantage because the champion made this transition successfully himself less than two years ago against Chad Dawson. I promise you that I will be the new champion on April 4."
