Where Are They Now? James Warring

By Boxing Bob Newman

There is a catchy line about former IBF Cruiserweight champion James Warring: “It took him 32 years to get a shot at the title and only 24 seconds to win it!” Only the second man to go from being a kick boxing world champion to become a boxing world champ (Troy Dorsey was the first), Warring talks about his lack of confidence crossing over to the “gloves only” version of the sport, his brief boxing career (only 23 fights) and his successful life after leaving the squared circle.

The 12th Round — The State of Amateur Boxing

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

Out of respect to Julio Cesar Chavez and his family, due to the tragic loss of his brother Rafel “Borrego“ Chavez, we didn’t publish this column yesterday. May God bring prompt resignation to Dona Isabel and the rest of the family.

On a happy note the boxing community of the world has been following Daniel Franco’s recovery. He is out from the hospital to a rehab center which is great even when it is heratbreaking to see that he has to fight hard to walk, speak and continue the process together better.

I was so happy to see a video of Prichard Colon from his Mom, Prichard is responsive and it is highly motivational to see. The love that this family has given to Prichard and the heart from Prichard have responded to the millions praying for him.

AMATEUR BOXING

Amateur boxing has been lost in the sea with troubled waters, heavy storms without any direction. This process started many years ago, the countless controversies in scoring and performance of referees, the many actions which have challenged the essence of amateur boxing has brought this delicate situation to the correct states of amateur boxing.

Bundrage Dominates Rojas

By Brad Snyder; The Undercard
Photos by Bob Ryder

Cornelius “K-9” Bundrage wants a third world title. The two-time World IBF champion just may have found the right promoter to make another run for it. Bundrage and promoter Langston “Lank the King” Hampton Jr., have been friends for a while, so it makes sense for this partnership to have formed. But K-9 Bundrage is no longer in his prime. This run at another title will have to be calculated. K-9 will have to be active to make this happen.

The only certainty that was talked about by promoter Lank (grandson of Don King) was that this show, on Sunday in Dearborn at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, was going on the road after the fight. Bundrage’s first step in his next championship quest was against Juan Carlos Rojas (8-21-2 Draws, 7 KO’s). (more…)

Arum: Horn is a future major star

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum arrived in Brisbane on Monday ahead of the WBO welterweight title bout featuring champion Manny Pacquiao and challenger WBO #1 Jeff Horn at the Suncorp Stadium on Saturday (Sunday in Australia). Arum praised Horn as a future major star and expects a viewing audience of ten million on ESPN.

“If Jeff Horn, win or lose, performs as well as I think he will, he will end up to be a major star in the United States just because so many eyeballs have seen him,” Arum said on Monday as he watched Horn train. “And I really believe that Jeff Horn will give an outstanding account of himself. This is a great, great, great opportunity. The fight will be shown free to the American public on ESPN, the largest sports network in the world. ESPN is going all out to promote the event. We’re looking forward to an audience as large as 10 million in the United States and maybe larger…. it will dwarf anything Manny Pacquiao has done in the United States in the 15 or 16 years that he’s been fighting.”

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao told the Australian press on his arrival in Brisbane on Saturday that he is in his best fighting shape for the July 2 (July 1st in the USA) defense of the championship against WBO #1 Jeff Horn at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.

“Training is good, we did a lot of hard work. I am very excited for the fans to give a good show and to show my best in the boxing ring,” he told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio. “Some reports coming out of the Philippines that I haven’t been training hard are not true.

Devin Haney still unbeaten

By David Robinett

In the main event of World Fighting Championship (WFC) 73 at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort in Rancho Mirage, California, 18-year old Devin Haney continued his run as an undefeated blue-chip prospect, dispatching game but overmatched Miguel Aispuro by referee stoppage at 1:51 of the fifth round in a scheduled eight-round super lightweight bout.

Haney (16-0, 11 KOs) was a standout in the United States amateur program who missed his chance at the 2016 Summer Olympics due to his young age, winning amateur championships at lightweight and junior welterweight before turning pro. The pedigree was evident early on, as Haney fought with the confidence of someone substantially more skilled than his opponent. Haney relied early on his fast hands, snapping his left jab and firing out his right hand before Aispuro could react. Aispuro (8-6, 6 KOs), who came into this fight having only beaten two fighters with wins on their record, nevertheless gave a good account of himself, landing solid body shots throughout rounds three and four as Haney’s defense allowed some openings while he was showing off and throwing punches from a variety of angles.

Brunson KOs Cintron in knockdown-filled war

North Philly’s Tyrone Brunson won a thrilling fifth round technical knockout victory over former world champion Kermit Cintron Saturday night in the main event of a lively Kings Promotions show at the 2300 Arena in South Philly. Brunson had to twice climb off the canvas before securing victory, in a fight for the vacant PA State junior middleweight championship that was must-win for both boxers. With sky-high stakes and big expectations, the fight played out even better than anyone could have hoped for.

Cintron, Reading, PA, took control at the opening bell with his longer reach and deeper ring experience. Common opinion believed that Brunson needed to get busy early and press the action to allow for his punching power to dictate the bout. So when Cintron jumped out to a fast start and Brunson appeared to be in a boxing – and not punching – mood, the first three minutes looked like the evening would belong to Cintron. (more…)

Harris Convincing in Big Win Over Tyner

By Lindy Lindell (main event) and Brad Snyder (undercard)
Photos: Bob Ryder

From Leonardo Tyner’s first fight, his style of fighting hasn’t changed a whit. Twenty seconds of energetic haymakers and two minutes of relative inactivity. Within those bursts, he is probably Motown’s most exciting fighter. But waiting for those bursts is probably the informed Detroit boxing spectators’ most frustrating experience. It was no different in the main event contest on promoter Greg Ahrens and matchmaker Carlos Llinas’ “Night of Knockouts” show.

Against junior-middle prospect Winford Harris, also a Detroiter, and now (14-0, 8 KO’s) with his solid 8-round win at Detroit’s MotorCity Casino-Hotel, Tyner (32-11-2, 20 KO’s) continued his stop-start pattern of twenty seconds of action and two minutes of nothing-much, and he found himself looking at a big-points loss through the wrong end of a telescope. The judges scored it by a wide margin, 79-73, 79-74, and a somewhat close 77-74. Fightnews had trouble giving Tyner a single round, 80-73, though he might have scored a knockout or at least a knockdown in the second had he gone into his punch-burst twenty seconds before the end of the round rather than ten.

Jimenez wins controversial split nod over Pryor

By Craig Wick at ringside

When your main event blows up two weeks prior to fight night, a promoter better have something credible warming up in the bullpen. Fortunately for promoter Bobby Hitz and Round 3 Productions, they had just the ticket: a rematch between Chicago’s Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez and Cincinnati’s Aaron Pryor Jr. (yep, son of “The Hawk”). The two initially rumbled back in May of 16, a back-and-forth, scintillating contest that ended in a draw. When the previously announced headliner, featuring undefeated Mike Lee and once-beaten Aaron Quattrocchi, was deep-sixed due to an injury to Lee, the Jimenez-Pryor fight took top billing. While some fans may have been disappointed, those with any boxing acumen should have known that the Jimenez-Pryor fight was the better matchup all along. And it didn’t disappoint, as both men put on another barnburner Friday night at “The Dome at the Ballpark,” in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, IL. When the dust settled, Jimenez picked up the “Ramada Rumble” victory and the WBC Continental Americas Super Middleweight Title that went along with it. (more…)

Fenech: Horn can defeat Pacquiao if he uses the right tactics

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Former three-time world champion Jeff Fenech has advised WBO #1 Jeff Horn he can defeat WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao on July 2 if he uses the correct tactics at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Queensland Australia with a predicted attendance of 55,000+ fight fans. Fenech talked to Grantlee Kieza of the Courier Mail.

“Just bash the bloke in close,” Fenech said. “It’s no more Mister Nice Guy now. I’m not saying break the rules but you have to rough Manny up. Jeff, do everything to hurt him in close. Twist him, twist his knees, use your weight advantage, bully him — bang your shoulder into him. Manny can punch at a distance, Jeff. Close the distance. Stay on his chest and make him feel all of his 38 years.”

Pacquiao-Horn has already eclipsed Fenech’s record for the biggest crowd ever in Australian boxing which had stood at 38,000 for the 1992 world title fight with Azumah Nelson at Princes Park in Melbourne.

Tiberi Destroys Lewis in 2

By Rick Scharmberg at ringside

“Jolt’n” Joey Tiberi (15-2, 8 KOs) hammered out Marlon (2nd Chance) Lewis (6-9-2, 3 KOs) 45 seconds into the second round of the scheduled six round junior welterweight main event Friday night at the Nur Shrine Temple in New Castle, Delaware. In the co-feature, cruiserweights Lamont “The Problem Solver” Singletary and Ernest “The Corpus Christi Beast” Reyna were just getting heated up, when Reyna emerged from an exchange with a badly gashed left eye in the opening round of the scheduled six round bout, resulting in a “no contest”.

Photo: Rick Scharmberg

Sporting an improved jab and defense, Tiberi came right out firing two rights to the body of the taller, lankier Lewis, who sought to land his right hand behind a distracting left jab, which he carried low and extended. Lewis landed a sharp right in the opening seconds, and followed up with three pecking jabs. Tiberi shook it off and pounded the body in a clinch. By the end of the round, Tiberi was slipping Lewis’s jab, and getting inside to work the body. He landed a nice three-punch combination to the head and body near the end of the round. (more…)

At the Dome at the Ballpark in Rosemont, Illinois on Friday night, Chicago’s Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez claimed the WBC Continental Americas super middleweight title with a highly controversial split decision over Cincinnati’s Aaron Pryor Jr. (19-11-2, 11 KOs). Jimenez, who improved to 21-1-1, 14 KOs, was down in round eight, but hung on to take the split verdict, 96-93, 95-94, with the the third judge seeing it for Pryor, 96-93.

Light heavyweight Derrick ‘Superman’ Findley won by KO over Donovan ’Don da Bomb’ George. Referee Celestino Ruiz stopped the bout at 2:24 in round five of a scheduled eight.

Heavyweight Jamal Woods halted previously unbeaten 270-pounder Lorenzo Hood at 2:48 of round number two. Hood appeared to get hit with either a low blow or possibly a borderline punch. After a brief exam, referee Lou Hall started counting and near the count of eight stopped the contest and awarded the bout to Woods. A complaint from Hood to the referee and officials was to no avail.

Sanchez, relatively sharp in his first fight of the year, notched his 10th knockout triumph minus a knockdown. However, the ringside physician decided Huerta, idle last year, had taken too much punishment to answer the bell for the sixth. (more…)
