Saturday night at the Hanover National Guard Armory, in Hanover, PA, Osenohan Vasquez (8-2-1, 3 KOs) captured UBF All America junior welterweight title in odd fashion when Sammy Omar Quinones (8-3, 3 KOs) could not continue at the end of the sixth round due to heart palpitations. Quinones appeared to be well ahead on the scorecards, but Vasquez was game and fought evenly as both traded throughout the sixth round. Suddenly, in the closing seconds, without warning Quinones went into a defensive shell, and was hit with ten unanswered shots. While in his corner, Quinones complained of heart palpitations and the fight was waived off. The official time of the stoppage was three minutes of round six. Quinones was taken to a local hospital by ambulance for further observation.

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) scored a one-sided unanimous decision over previously unbeaten WBO jr welterweight champion Chris Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs) on Sunday at the Cotai Arena inside the Venetian Resort in Macao, China. Pacquiao stalked Algieri the whole fight, while Algieri backpedaled and tried to box from outside. An Algieri slip in round two was credited as a knockdown for Pacquiao. Pacman scored two more knockdowns in round six. Pacquiao floored Algieri two more times in round nine, Algieri barely survived. Algeria went down for the sixth time at the end of round ten. Scores were 119-103, 119-103, 120-102. Pacquiao’s last KO was against Miguel Cotto more than five years ago.
In a WBO flyweight eliminator, unbeaten two-time Olympic champion Zou Shiming (6-0, 1 KO) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Pacquiao-lookalike Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym (27-1-2, 12 KOs) on Sunday morning at the Cotai Arena inside the Venetian Resort in Macao, China. The Chinese boxing icon Shiming dropped Kwanpichit twice in round two but Kwanpichit survived. Kwanpichit was deducted a point for a low blow in round six and then knocked down again by Shiming. Shining scored a fourth knockdown in round twelve. Scores were 119-106, 119-106, 120-103.
Unbeaten WBO featherweight champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko (3-1, 1 KO) overcame a hand injury as well as #1 rated Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (52-2, 33 KOs) to retain his title by twelve round unanimous decision. Lomachenko dropped Piriyapinyo in round four and dominated the first six rounds. He then injured his left hand and won the rest of the bout mostly one-handed. Scores were 120-107 on all cards.
Unbeaten WBA super lightweight champion Jessie Vargas (26-0, 9 KOs) retained his title with a good action twelve round unanimous decision over former lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (31-4-1, 23 KOs). The results of Roy Jones Jr.’s training (and perhaps a willing opponent), lead to one of Jesse’s most entertaining fights. Scores were 116-112 on all cards.
Paige VanZant may have received a lot of attention for her looks and her age, but the 20-year-old strawweight prospect has plenty of mean in her too, as she delivered a stellar performance in her Octagon debut against fellow newcomer Kailin Curran, stopping the Hawaiian in the third round of their UFC Fight Night prelim bout at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas . . .

Russian heavyweight prospect Ruslan “Leopard” Magomedov fed Octagon newcomer Josh “The Cuddly Bear” Copeland a steady diet of kicks throughout their UFC Fight Night prelim bout at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, and while Copeland didn’t fall, it was a decisive unanimous decision victory for Magomedov Saturday night, upping his Octagon record to 2-0 . . .

Unbeaten super flyweight Rex Tso moved to 15-0, 9 KOs after an eight round unanimous decision over Espinos Sabu (11-3-1, 5 KOs). Scores were 79-73, 78-74, 78-74.

In a WBO cruiserweight eliminator and highly charged grudge match, Tony Bellew (22-2-1, 14 KOs) got his revenge against former world champion Nathan Cleverly (28-1, 14 KOs) taking a split decision on Saturday night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. The first eight rounds were close, but Bellew was able to bully Cleverly into the ropes and deliver punishment for the last four rounds. Cleverly, who apparently suffered an injury to his right hand, was gassed at the end. Scores were 116-112, 115-113 Bellew, 115-114 Cleverly.
Unbeaten 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Anthony Joshua (10-0, 10 KOs) blew away 39-year-old veteran Michael Sprott (42-23, 17 KOs) with a barrage of punches in round one on Saturday night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. The bout was waved off after just 86 seconds.
WBC #1 super middleweight “Saint” George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs) overcame New Jersey’s Denis “Momma’s Boy” Douglin (17-4, 10 KOs) scoring a seventh round TKO. Groves dropped Douglin in round seven and got the stoppage moments later. Time was 2:54
IBF #1 super middleweight James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) scored an impressive third round TKO over WBC #10 Marco Antonio Periban (20-3-1, 13 KOs). DeGale dropped Perigean with a left hand and Periban was unable to continue. Time was :30. After the fight, DeGale called WBC champ Carl Froch a coward.
WBA super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 KOs) hammered out a twelve round unanimous decision over game Hidenori Otake (22-2-3, 9 KOs). Otake was hampered by a cut over the right eye in the late rounds. Scores were 119-109, 119-109, 118-110.
WBA bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell (24-2-1, 11 KOs) retained his title with a tenth round TKO over Javier Chacon (20-3, 5 KOs). It was a competitive fight until Chacon quit 39 into round ten citing an injured right shoulder. (more…)
Minutes ago in Terracina (Latina), Italy, Gianluca Branco (49-3-1, 23 KOs) won the vacant European welterweight title when Rafal Jackiewicz (46-12-2, 21 KOs) didn’t come out for round seven due to a knee injury.

Japanese southpaw Takashi Miura (28-2-2, 21 KOs), 130, impressively kept his WBC super-featherweight belt as he dropped official challenger Edgar Puerta (23-5-1, 19 KOs), 128.75, in the opening session, kept battering the game Mexican and finally halted him with the referee’s intervention at 2:15 of the sixth round on Saturday in Yokohama, Japan.
Also, unbeaten three-time world champ Roman Gonzalez (41-0, 35 KOs), 112, successfully made his initial defense as he lopsidedly whipped Filipino Rocky Fuentes (35-8-2, 21 KOs), 111, into submission at 2:11 of the sixth round just after he sent him to the deck with merciless combinations upstairs and downstairs.
Heavyweight Kali Meehan (42-5, 32 KOs) hammered out a ten round unanimous decision over Shane Cameron (29-5, 22 KOs) on Saturday night at the North Shore Events Centre in Auckland, New Zealand. Both fighters had their moments with the 44-year-old Meehan generally getting the better of it. As the fight progressed, the super rugged Cameron got more and more busted up but continued fighting hard to the end. Scores were 99-91, 98-92, 97-94.
Cruiserweight Brad Pitt (18-1, 12 KOs) won the all-Oceania Super Eight tourney with a three round majority nod over previously unbeaten Vaitele Soi (24-1, 16 KOs) in the final.
In an upset, cruiserweight Anthony McCracken (17-7-1, 8 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over ADavis Aloua (11-2, 8 KOs).

Pacquiao against Mayweather would quite likely be the richest fight in boxing history. Although Pacquiao is promoted by HBO and Mayweather by Showtime, Pacquaio’s promoter, Bob Arum, doesn’t see this as an obstacle to the fight being made. It is Arum’s understanding that the two giant U.S. subscription TV networks would work together to make the fight happen. That is to say, each network would broadcast the event on pay-per-view and fans could choose which network coverage they wished to watch.
This happened, of course, when HBO’s Lennox Lewis fought Showtime’s Mike Tyson 12 years ago. (more…)

In a chance to cheer one of their own, over 2,000 fans packed the local hockey arena in Sorel-Tracy Quebec and roared as quickly rising light-welterweight David Theroux (4-0 3KO) took care of business with a third round knockout over Noel Rincon (12-4-1 9KO) of Mexico in Friday’s main event.
It was the first look for local fans at the rapidly rising prospect who turned pro in June and has impressed in the short while he has been pro. Theroux stepped in as the main event for the #15 (IBF) ranked Schiller Hyppolite who had his opponent fall through earlier this week and the vocal crowd didn’t seem to mind a bit. “David is an improved version of Eric Lucas,” said veteran trainer Stephan Larouche comparing the young fighter to the man he helped guide to a world championship.

New Legend Boxing returned to Resorts World Casino with an exciting eight fight show in front of a packed house.
Bryant Cruz, from Portchester, NY, scored an easy as can be TKO over Engelberto Valenzuela for the vacant UBF All-Americas lightweight title. Because Valenzuela didn’t make contracted weight of 135lbs he could not win title if victorious, but that became moot when Cruz, (13-0, 7 KOs), battered him all over the ring in the first of eight and landed everything he threw in the second round prompting the officials of the New York State Athletic Commission to jump in the ring to call it off at 44 seconds of round two. Valenzuela fell to (9-4, 3 KOs).
The co-main event between Jonathan Maicelo and Hector Velazquez was cancelled when Velazquez pulled out. (more…)

Tijuana, Mexico, has a new world champion as twenty-one year Kenia Enriquez (13-0, 6KO) put on a masterful and dominating performance against the tough as nails Ana “La Bronca” Arrazola (21-11-3, 13KO). Enriquez captured the vacant WBO Female Flyweight Title in the main event of a fight card presented by Bobby D. Presents and Zanfer. The southpaw Arrazola had no answer for the constant but technical pressure from Enriquez who landed her right hand almost at will. In the second half Arrazola was hurt a couple of times as she reeled against the ropes but displayed a chin of granite as she made it to the final bell. Scores were 100-90 twice and 100-89 for Enriquez.
Leon “3rd Generation” Spinks III (9-1-1, 4KO) forced a TKO stoppage over Tijuana’s Ivan “Oso” Zavala (6-8-2, 2KO) in the third round of a scheduled six in the light welterweight division. Both very active in the first two round with Spinks III the more accurate of the two. Zavala scored some good over hand rights but Spinks III was able to walk right through them. Near the end of the third, Spinks III unleashed an onslaught of punches that caused a cut over the left eye of Zavala. Zavala went down but beat the count but the ringside doctor waived off the fight. Official time was 3:00 of the third.
Leon Spinks III is the grandson of former undisputed heavyweight champion Leon Spinks, son of the late Leon Calvin, great nephew of former light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Michael Spinks, plus nephew of former welterweight and jr middleweight champion Cory Spinks.
