Argentinean taxi driver David Emanuel “El Pirata” Peralta, (26-2-1, 14 KOs) shockingly defeated former world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, (33-5-1, 18 KOs) by 12-round split decision on Saturday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

“I wanted to retire before this fight,” said Peralta. “I was a cab driver, driving cabs in Argentina. I was offered a chance to fight in the U.S. and came away victorious. I came to fight and I knew I would win. He is a very good fighter but I hit him with the harder shots. I thought I knocked him down but if the referee feels it’s not a knockdown I have to respect that. Now I want to fight bigger names. No way I’m going to retire now. I’ll be ready again to fight soon, this was no joke and I can beat a lot of great fighters. Hopefully I get good fights after this performance. I won’t be a taxi driver anymore.”

Guerrero stated, “I thought I clearly won the fight. For the judge to say I lost eight rounds sounds crazy to me. Peralta was very awkward but I felt I won. I won the rounds when I boxed. This is very disappointing but I’ll be back, that you can count on!”

Hernandez stuns Angulo, Gausha edges Martinez

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

In a bloody super middleweight slugfest, Freddy “El Riel” Hernandez (34-8, 22 KOs) outscored Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo (24-6, 20 KOs) over ten rounds to win a 98-92, 97-93, 97-93 unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Angulo and Hernandez began at a fast pace with Hernandez keeping his distance jabbing the aggressive Angulo and following up with straight punches. The taller Hernandez began to give Angulo fits as he let his long arms loose on Angulo. In round five Angulo began closing in landing big punches as Hernandez was cut on the left eye. In round six, Hernandez continued to let his hands loose on the aggressor Angulo. Continuing to gush blood from the left eye late in the fight, the Mexico City fighter kept his distance and boxed Angulo who kept coming. Hernandez stood his ground against the power punching Angulo late in the fight despite being cut and bleeding from his eye as Hernandez finished strong.

Unbeaten 2012 U.S. Olympian jr middleweight Terrell Gausha (19-0, 9 KOs) stayed unbeaten with a majority decision over Steve Martinez (16-3, 13 KOs).

Referee Jack Reiss warned Martinez to keep his punches up in round five as he continued to pound away to Gausha’s body. Halfway through in round six Gausha jabbed and let his hands loose but Martinez kept coming at him going to the body following up to the head. Countering effectively in round seven Gausha mixed in the jab as he neutralized Martinez’s aggressiveness. Gausha began to pull away as he let loose firing combinations late in the fight on the fading Martinez in route the decision win. In the end, the judges scored the bout 97-93, 97-93, and 95-95.

Avni Yildirim dominates Pryor Jr., faces Schiller Hyppolite next

Unbeaten WBC #4 rated super middleweight contender Avni Yildirim (13-0, 8 KOs) clearly dominated US veteran Aaron Pryor Jr. (19-10-2, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at Huxley’s in Berlin, Germany. Yildirim pressed the action and landed lots of hard shots while Pryor jr. was in survival mode and somehow made it to the final bell. After the lopsided ten-round decision win (100-90 on two cards, 99-91 on the third) the 25-year-old Turk will go on to face WBC #7 Schiller Hyppolite next. The 30-year-old “Batman” from Montreal, Canada has only lost one of his 22 pro fights so far. Date and place haven’t been confirmed but most probably it will take place end of October in Germany.

“The contracts are signed but I am waiting for my TV partners to confirm the date”, says promoter Ahmet Oner. “I don’t like to plan too far ahead but I made the deal with Schiller before the Pryor bout because I was sure that Avni would win. Avni vs. Schiller is a major fight. Two top ten contenders trying to get in line for a world title shot. Those are the fights people want to see. I am sure that it will be a war. Avni proved against Pryor that he can go ten rounds at a very high pace. Of course, I wanted to see the KO but maybe it was good for him to go the distance. Avni is still a young guy. He is learning fast and developing very well.” (more…)

After he weighed in today WBO #3 lightweight contender Jose Felix Jr. of Los Mochis, Mexico said he will ask Top Rank to next make a fight with WBO champion Terry Flanagan. “I’ve got to take care of Rob Frankel first – and he has a complicated style, the way he blocks shots and stuff – but after I win let’s do a fight with Flanagan. I will fight Flanagan in His House, overseas. It doesn’t matter where. Let’s get it done.”

Felix, 33-1-1, 25 KOs, was born and raised in Los Mochis, Mexico. He trained weeks in Los Mochis to get ready for Frankel, a rugged 34-16-7, 7 KO fighter from Denver. The fight is scheduled for 10 rounds in an outdoor arena and will open Top Rank’s televised card on Solo Boxeo Unimas here Saturday night at the Churchhill County Fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada.

Aaron Pryor jr. and Avni Yildirim are fired up for their super middleweight clash on Saturday (August 27th) in Berlin, Germany. The American tipped the scale at 75.6 kg (166.6 lbs.) while Yildirim weighed in at 76.0 kg (167.5 lbs.). Pryor has a huge height and reach advantage but the unbeaten Turk made very clear that he is not intimidated by the size of his opponent.

“There is a saying: The taller they are, the harder they fall”, said Yildirim. “I don’t care if my opponent is smaller or taller than me. Once he lies flat on the canvas he is as big as everybody else. Of course, I will have to adjust my game plan. But I had good sparring sessions with tall guys. This is no problem for me.”

Liam Smith: Canelo ducked GGG “massively”

Photo: Golden Boy Promotions

WBO junior middleweight champion Liam “Beefy” Smith (23-0-1, 13 KOs) didn’t pull many punches when he hosted an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit Boxing ahead of his clash with former two-division world champion Canelo Alvarez taking place September 17 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Here are the highlights…

On Canelo’s weaknesses:

I don’t want to give too many of his weaknesses away. Certainly not now. He’s got a lot of weaknesses. He doesn’t like fighting three minutes of each round. That’s one of them that’s not really hard to see.

On whether Canelo ducked Golovkin:

Yeah, ducked him massively. He went the wrong way about it. He’s being criticized a lot and losing a lot of fans about the way he did it. If he was open and honest about it, people would have understood. If he said, ‘look, at the moment I’m not 160. GGG wouldn’t come down.’ If he said, ‘look I’ll fight you in 12 months time, I’m going to build myself to 160’ he’d have bought himself grace. But the way he went about it after the fight with Cotto he got GGG in the ring and said he’d put the gloves back on. Then after the fight he said the thing about his balls, he built the fans up about fighting him next and then he gave the belt up. I just think he went about it the wrong way. (more…)

Robert Guerrero: “I got a chance to size him up today. I saw how tall he is. Picking my spots – seeing where I have to go. After looking at him, I know he’s coming to fight. I’m expecting a war. Like all Argentine fighters, I know he’s got that hunger to prove he’s worthy of this big opportunity and make the most of it…I’ve seen some tape on him. He’s one of those guys that is durable. A durable tall, lanky guy. His height is going to help him. I am expecting a tough fight for sure. This is like a world title shot for him. I don’t know what he is going to bring to the table and that is exciting for me.”

David Peralta: “I want to go down the same path as Marcos Maidana and Lucas Matthysse. They were given great opportunities in their careers and took advantage of them. I am going to take advantage of this opportunity…I am well prepared. I came here to fight. I am prepared to go the distance. I am going to throw a lot of punches, move around and be ready to get the decision.”

“He is fit to fight and has complied with the exams, they’re already done. There were neurological exams and we asked Dr. Edgar Hernandez, who evaluated him after the fight with Orlando Salido. (Juanma) had six fights after that losing three by knockout and Hernandez was evaluating him. I also evaluated him in my office and found him to be very well. So he’s fit to fight,” she said.

Guerrero-Peralta Flash Quotes

By Miguel Maravilla
Photos: Andy Samuelson/Premier Boxing Champions

Robert Guerrero: “We started off the year good with the Garcia fight. I thought I won that fight but after that fight we stayed in the gym. Camp was good we did a lot of good things in the gym. We sparred tall guys because this guy is really tall. He’s a tall lanky fighter. That’s all we know about Peralta. Sometimes those are the toughest fights. I want to give the fans a great show and let them know that I’m not done yet and will take care of business.”

David Peralta: “I feel this will be the most important fight of my career. This camp was good the preparation was great. I am nobody to judge Guerrero. He has given a lot to the sport and is always in good fights, but now it’s my time. I plan to show my style and show everyone what I’m about. I expect to give a great fight and leave it all in the ring!”
