Quigley Wins by Knockout In DC

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Not even a stubborn earring could keep undefeated Germantown, MD welterweight Gerome “GQ” Quigley from scoring a victory in the main event of the self-promoted GQ Promotions card at the University of the District of Columbia Physical Activities Center in Washington, DC. Quigley scored a fourth-round TKO over Dennis Sharpe of Bayonne, NJ in a rematch of an April 2016 bout that Quigley won by first round TKO in Springfield, VA.

The rematch was delayed for about three minutes after the introductions because Quigley forgot to take his earring out of his left ear. Quigley needed assistance from one of the ring card girls to get the earring out. Once the bout started, Quigley proceeded to batter Sharpe for the duration of the bout. Quigley would focus his attack on the body and knock Sharpe down in the third round before completing the job with the stoppage at 1:02 of the fourth round. Quigley remains undefeated at 16-0, 15 KO’s while Sharpe falls to 17-24-4, four KO’s. (more…)

WBC #3 Rodriguez vaporizes late sub Lavinanza

Unbeaten bantamweight contender Emmanuel “Manny” Rodriguez (16-0, 11 KOs) annihilated late sub Robinson Lavinanza (11-4-1, 4 KOs) in the first round on Saturday night at the Parque Concepción Pérez Alberto in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. Rodriguez sent Lavinanza to the canvas three times to end hostilities quickly.

The WBC #3, IBF #4, WBA #8, WBO #10 rated Rodriguez was originally slated to face longtime former world champion Omar Narvaez, who pulled out late. “I was ready to fight an Argentine who was world champion of two divisions,” said Manny, “but I think now he’s dedicated to being a magician because he’s very good at the trick of disappearing!”

Linares beats Crolla again, retains WBA lightweight title in dominant fashion

WBA lightweight champion Jorge Linares (42-3, 27 KOs) retained his title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Anthony Crolla (31-6-3, 13 KOs) in their rematch on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Photo: Lawrence Lustig/Matchroom

Linares was superb as he cruised through much of the fight with an impressive display of boxing skill and power. A precisely timed uppercut floored Crolla in the seventh. Moments later Linares nearly finished him with a flurry against the ropes. Crolla, however, would not go quietly. The Manchester native, perhaps spurned by his home crowd, bravely grew more aggressive in the second half of the fight. But Linares was simply too sharp, too fast and too comfortable for Crolla to overcome, winning 118-109 across the board.

Haapoja tops Bruzzese for EBU-EU cruiser title

Two EBU-EU titles were on the line in Helsinki, Finland on 25th March, as Juho Haapoja (28–7–2) beat Leonardo Bruzzese (17–3) for the cruiserweight title and Faroukh Kourbanov (13–0) topped Petteri Fröjdholm (11–1) for the super featherweight belt.

Juho Haapoja seized the cruiserweight title in a slugfest. The ever-aggressive Haapoja pushed forward and threw power punches from the opening bell, which seemed to intimidate the Italian. The taller Bruzzese tried to establish his jab in the second round but with little effect. Haapoja rattled his opponent with a hard overhand right at the end of the third and again in the fourth round, but Bruzzese shook it off and looked sharper in the fifth. (more…)

In the main event at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, Philadelphian Ray Robinson, 23-2, 12 KOs, pounded away at Brazilian Claudinei Lacerda, 18-17-1, 13 KOs, for nearly seven full rounds before referee Benjy Esteves stepped in to save Lacerda from further punishment at 2:30 of round seven. Lacerda managed to stay on his feet throughout and landed a few potshots, but Robinson was in charge through the entire fight. The win was Robinson’s 12th in a row.

Philly lightweight Branden Pizarro, 4-0, 2 KOs, knocked down Matt Murphy, 2-10-1, 4 KOs, in the second round, but the blue-haired boxer from St. Louis survived the onslaught and extended Pizarro to the full four round limit.

EBU Updates

By Marco Bratusch

Last Saturday European light heavyweight titlist Robert Stieglitz (50-5-2, 29 KOs) had to struggle his way recovering on the scorecards to secure a split draw decision against experienced and technically smart Nikola Sjekloca (32-4-1, 11 KOs), from Montenegro, after twelve entertaining rounds in Leipzig, Germany, in a SES Sports Events promoted card, as Fightnews.com reported. Stieglitz, a former WBO 168-lbs title holder, barely kept his belt and had a point deducted by referee Howard John Foster in round ten for frequently locking down Sjekloca’s head as they approached during inside actions. Stieglitz will now have to face Sauerland-promoted mandatory challenger Erik Skoglund (26-0, 12 KOs), from Sweden, with parties already to benefit the private negotiation period until April 11th, EBU communicated.

In the lightweight division, European champion Edis Tatli (29-1, 10 KOs) will defend his continental belt for the fourth time in a voluntary defense against durable 23-year-old Belgian Francesco Patera (17-2, 7 KOs) who put up a great 12-rounds fight last February facing Italian veteran Pasquale Di Silvio.

Spanish brawler and former IBF junior featherweight title holder Kiko Martinez (36-7-1, 26 KOs) has relinquished his mandatory challenger position for the European (EBU) featherweight title, a belt Denis Ceyland (18-0-2, 8 KOs) retained via technical decision last Saturday in Aarhus, Denmark, when an accidental clash of heads during round four ended a heated affair with Isaac Lowe (13-0-2, 5 KOs). Martinez already presents a scheduled match against undefeated Josh Warrington in Leeds in May for the WBC International. The new official challenger designated by EBU is the European Union (EU) champion Marc Vidal (8-1-4, 4 KOs), with parties to have time until April 24th to reach a private deal and avoid the purse bid. As a result, the EU title becomes vacant.

Sunderland promoter Phil Jeffries won the EBU purse bid last Wednesday in Rome to earn the rights to stage his boxer Martin Ward (25-3-1, 5 KOs)’s official challenge to the European junior featherweight champion Abigail Medina (17-3-2, 8 KOs). Jeffries, who offered 16,000 Euros and was the only participant bidder, has plans to promote the fight in Hougton, England, early next summer looking to involve a Tv broadcaster, according to the local press.

Italian prospect and European Union (EU) flyweight champion Mohammed Obbadi (12-0, 9 KOs) is scheduled to fight on April 29th in Florence, Italy, initially for his official defence against British Don Broadhurst (18-3-1). However the challenger has already revealed weight concernes as he normally struggles to make the 112-lbs divisional limit and will not be able to fight, consequentially relinquish his position. Boxe Loreni is now trying to bring on board another suitable opponent for the date reported.

Helenius-Chisora 2 is on

We’re hearing that Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius (24-1, 15 KOs) and Dereck “Delboy” Chisora (26-7, 18 KOs) will meet in a rematch on May 27 at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland. The bout will be for the WBC Silver heavyweight title. Helenius previously scored a controversial split decision over Chisora in December 2011.

Robert Helenius: “Before our first match, I injured my right shoulder and had to fight for twelve-rounds with just one arm. If I was able to beat him with one arm, I don’t see any problems beating him when I have two…after I beat Chisora, I will be in a good position to challenge for the world title.”

Middleweight prospect Jason Quigley (13-0, 10 KOs) passed the toughest test of his career thus far, outlasting Glen Tapia (23-4, 15 KOs) over ten rounds to earn the vacant NABF middleweight title in the main event of the debut telecast of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN. Scores were probably a little wide, at 98-92, 99-91, and 100-90, as Tapia could arguably have taken at least three or four rounds. Tapia looked to be in trouble early, almost going down from a Quigley right to the body in round two before regaining his balance. Both fighters traded bombs in round three, making it appear likely that someone would end the fight early. However the fast pace of the early rounds took its toll on both fighters, with the action slowing down considerably over the second half of the fight.

Quigley was the first to yield the pace, changing his style from slugfest to boxer-puncher, and looked to be slowing down faster than Tapia. Quigley looked very tired in round six, meekly flicking his jab at Tapia while Tapia looked ready to pounce, loaded up on left and right hooks. Quigley continued to mostly circle and jab in round seven, fighting in spurts, seemingly aware his tank was getting low. Quigley’s decision to box proved to be the right one though, as Tapia couldn’t adjust and spent the final few rounds following Quigley and not able to pull the trigger more than a few times each round on the moving target. Ultimately, Tapia simply didn’t throw enough to take advantage of Quigley’s fatigue. (more…)
