NXT Recap: 28th August 2014


NXT is two weeks away from it’s latest live special, Takeover, and this week’s edition allows some of the integral components of that card build upon their rivalries and develop some momentum heading into the big show. Nevertheless, for tonight at least, the question on everybody’s mind is who would become the next NXT General Manager? Triple H made the announcement that they would debut this week in the build-up to Takeover, and at the point of his arrival, nobody was left disappointed.

With regards to the actual wrestling, the main event would see four of the biggest names on the roster square off in tag team action, as NXT Champion Adrian Neville teams with Sami Zayn to take on the pairing of Tyson Kidd and Tyler Breeze. Also, Bayley takes on Sasha Banks in a rematch from two weeks prior as she continues to prepare for her match with NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte at Takeover. And if that isn’t enough excitement for the discerning wrestling fan, Bull Dempsey looks to send a message to Mojo Rawley

Joshua faces Bakhtov for title

Anthony Joshua: Will have first title fight in October

Anthony Joshua: Will have first title fight in October

Anthony Joshua will have his first title fight when he takes on Denis Bakhtov for the WBC International heavyweight belt at the O2 in London on October 11.

Joshua’s big night comes on a packed card, live on Sky Sports, which also includes Lee Selby taking on Joel Brunker in a final eliminator for the IBF featherweight crown.

Bakhtov is a two-time holder of the WBC title and recently claimed an eight-round win over German Konstantin Alrich, who Joshua will come up against in Manchester on September 13, also live on Sky Sports.

“I believe that the time is right for Anthony to step up and fight for his first title,” said promoter Eddie Hearn.

“He has an important clash with Airich in Manchester in September, and when he comes through that, he will be ready to face Bakhtov in what promises to be a cracking contest.”

Selby has burst on to the world scene in the last 12 months but unbeaten Australian fighter Brunker will provide him with his toughest test yet as they look to secure a clash with champion Evgeny Gradovich.

“It’s a huge night for Lee Selby and one that will show that he is ready for a world title shot,” Hearn added.

“Brunker is a tough and talented Aussie with plenty of ambition, but I believe that Lee has timed his run to the top perfectly and will do the business on October 11.”

The bill also includes fights for a number of London fighters, with

Quigg craves big bouts

Scott Quigg: is defending his world title in Manchester on September 13, live on Sky Sports 1

Scott Quigg: is defending his world title in Manchester on September 13, live on Sky Sports 1

Scott Quigg has shrugged off another change of opponent but remains determined to face the big names in the super-bantamweight division.

The Bury fighter was due to defend his WBA title against Paulus Ambunda, but the Namibian pulled out through injury, meaning the champion will now face replacement Stephane Jamoye, on September 13, live on Sky Sports 1.

This is the second successive fight in which Quigg’s preparation has been disrupted, as the dangerous Tshifhiwa Munyai was named as a new foe just over a week ahead of his last bout in April.

On that occasion the champion was far from unsettled, despatching the South African with a crushing second-round stoppage, and he is not concerned by another switch of opponent.

“We get an opponent and it happens again where he pulls out and it could be frustrating, but if I let it frustrate me it’s going to affect me,” he told Sky Sports.

“Boxing throws up all sorts of surprises – you have got to expect the unexpected. As long as I’m 100 per cent ready, focused, sharp and whoever is in the opposite corner – I’ve got to take care of them and that’s the only thing I think of.

“Nothing has affected me, I feel in the best shape I have ever been. I feel like you are going to see the best Scott Quigg that you’ve ever seen.”

Shunned

A win over Ambunda, a former world champion, would have enhanced Quigg’s reputation as one of the division’s rulers, but he pays little attention to critics who have questioned when he will face one of his main rivals.

The much-talked about clash with Belfast’s Carl Frampton has failed to materialise, while attempts to secure world title unification fights with Leo Santa Cruz (WBC) and Kiko Martinez (IBF) have been shunned.

Quigg blew Munyai away in spectacular fashion last time out – now he wants the big fights

Quigg is totally confident in his ability to compete with the best and insists he has nothing ‘to prove’ to his doubters.

“People they judge you and I just take it with a pinch of salt,” he said.

Campbell, Coyle top Hull bill

Luke Campbell will fight his first 12-rounder in front of his hometown Hull fans

Luke Campbell faces Daniel Brizuela and Tommy Coyle will take on Michael Katsidis at the Ice Arena in Hull on October 25, live on Sky Sports.

Olympic champion Campbell will step up to 12 rounds for the first time against the experienced 28-year-old with the vacant WBA inter-continental lightweight title up for grabs.

The Argentine returns to the same venue where he shared the ring with Coyle in a fight of the year contender in February.

Both fighters hit the canvas four times before Coyle stopped Brizuela in the 12th round to defend his IBF International title.

Coyle will put the belt on the line for a second time in front of his hometown fans against former two-time WBO interim champion Michael Katsidis.

“This is a big step-up for me but one I feel that I am ready for,” said Campbell, who boxes at Wembley Arena on September 20.

“Brizuela’s fight with Coyle was unbelievable and I know I am in for a serious night’s work, but I’m 7-0 now and with more rounds under my belt in September, I’m confident I can land my first title.”

Coyle added: “It’s great to be fighting someone of Michael Katsidis’ calibre. There were many big names touted for this fight and I am delighted that it’s Michael I’ll be taking on.

“He’s been in with Kevin Mitchell and Ricky Burns over here and also shared the ring with Robert Guerrero and Juan Manuel Marquez, so to beat him will be a huge achievement and a great scalp to have on my record.”

“It is nice to be fighting in England again and I am very much looking forward to the fight with Tommy,” said Katsidis. “I have always enjoyed the passion of the fans and I feel at home when I fight there.

Warrington joins Matchroom

Josh Warrington: Five-fight Matchroom deal

Josh Warrington: Five-fight Matchroom deal

Josh Warrington has signed with Matchroom ahead of his European title fight against Davide Diele in October.

The unbeaten featherweight, who fights for the vacant belt live on Sky Sports on October 4, joins Eddie Hearn’s stable on a five-fight deal.

Warrington will attempt to cap a dream year when he tackles Diele in his home city of Leeds having already won the Commonwealth and British titles in the past 10 months – the second of them against Martin Lindsay on home territory.

He said: “It’s great to have signed the deal so that I know that there’s going to be more big nights in Leeds in the next year. I have already had orders for over 1,300 tickets and I reckon I might do 2,000 for this one.

“Against Lindsay it was pretty short notice and on a Wednesday night, so this time there’s plenty of time to promote the show and the fans can look forward to a great night out in the city.

“The atmosphere was incredible last time and I reckon we’ll top that for this one.”

Hearn said: “Josh is the biggest ticket seller in the country right now, and we have an opportunity to do something very big in Leeds.

“We dipped our toe in the water in May and now we’re diving in headfirst. It’s a huge opportunity for Josh and I think we could see one of the most memorable atmosphere in a British arena for some time.”

Watch Warrington live on Sky Sports on October 4 as part of a card featuring Ricky Burns, Brian Rose and Callum Smith.
