Ward stops Kovalev in eight

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

In a fight no less controversial than their first meeting, WBA, WBO, and IBF Light Heavyweight champion Andre “S.O.G.” Ward (32-0, 16 KOs) scored an eighth round stoppage over Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (30-2, 25 KOs) when referee Tony Weeks halted the fight after Ward hit a badly hurt Kovalev with three successive punches on or below the beltline, causing him to slump against the ropes.

Photo: Tom Hogan – Hoganphotos/Roc Nation Sports

Kovalev had been hurt by a powerful straight right hand by Ward moments earlier, but replays showed the final punch was clearly below the belt, with the other two in the final sequence likely below the belt as well but partially obscured by the referee’s body. The controversial nature of the ending was further exacerbated by the fact that at the time of the stoppage, Kovalev was winning 68-65 on one scorecard and only one point behind on the other two, 66-67.

Prior to the eighth round, it was a close, physical affair that Ward was shading more by virtue of neutralizing Kovalev rather than beating him offensively. In a performance reminiscent of a vintage Bernard Hopkins, Ward repeatedly blunted Kovalev’s attack through a combination of head and body movement, successfully tying up Kovalev before he could get off, and, of course, sneaking in some low blows when needed. The fight did not swing decisively in either fighter’s direction until Ward’s straight right hand in round eight that caused Kovalev to stagger back on shaky legs before Ward finished him with the final sequence of blows at 2:29 of the round.

The bout took place on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Rigondeaux retains WBA superbantam title

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

In a controversial ending to an interesting matchup between undefeated beltholders, “regular” WBA Super Bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (18-0, 12 KOs) knocked out WBA Interim Super Bantamweight titlist Moses Flores (25-1, 17 KOs) at the end of the first round with a left hook after the bell.

Photo: Tom Hogan – Hoganphotos/Roc Nation Sports

Both fighters threw a punch after the bell sounded, but Flores’ punch did not land while Rigondeaux’s punch did, laying Flores out and immediately ending the fight. After a several minute delay, it was announced that the Nevada State Athletic Commission ruled that Rigondeaux’s punch was legal, although no explanation was immediately given. After the fight, Rigondeaux, after some prodding by HBO’s Max Kellerman, stated that he would consider catchweight fights with former pound-for-pound king Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez and current WBO Super Featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko.

In the main event Saturday night, outside on Tostitos Championship Plaza at The Star in Frisco, TX which is also the new headquarters of Jerry Jones’ Dallas Cowboys, super lightweight Fidel “The Atrisco Kid” Maldonado Jr. (24-3-1, 19 KOs) earned a ten-round split decision over former world champion Pablo “El Demoledor” Cesar Cano (30-6-1, 21 KOs).

The card was promoted by Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions and televised by ESPN.

Luis beats O’Connell for NABA belt

By Dave Spencer at ringside

Lightweight contender Tony “Lightning” Luis (24-3, 7 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over “Irish” Cam O’Connell (15-1-1, 10 KOs) for the vacant NABA lightweight championship on Saturday at the Cornwall Civic Complex in Cornwall, Canada. Scores were 100-90, 98-92, 98-82.

Ronnie Robidoux (4-0 2KO) dominated the action but was forced to the scorecards as the local Akwesasne middleweight scored a 40-36 (x3) victory over Argentine fighter Ivan Banach (4-2). A loud Cornwall Civic Complex crowd tried to will their man to the KO victory but Banach proved to be a hard nut crack over the four rounds. Robidoux cracked hard to the body in the early going and utilized the jab nicely in the second while a fading Banach was saved by the bell to end the third. Robidoux who was fast and furious with the left hook connecting constantly admitted he may have been guilty of punching himself out as the fight came to an end. (more…)

Ward-Kovalev undercard results

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

WBA Interim Light Heavyweight titlist Dmitry Bivol (11-0, 9 KOs) continued to bolster his credentials as a potential future challenger to the Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev winner with an easy four-round TKO of former light heavyweight title challenger Cedric Agnew (29-3, 15 KOs) in a scheduled ten-round non-title bout on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Photo: Tom Hogan – Hoganphotos/Roc Nation Sports

Bivol quickly established his superiority in the opening round, landing at will on Agnew. A left hook, straight right hand combination, followed by a flurry late in the round dropped Agnew, who got off the canvas but retreated into the corner and covered up into a defensive shell, which bought him enough time to survive the round. It just delayed the inevitable though, as Bivol stalked and pressed Agnew through two and a half more rounds before Agnew indicated to referee Russell Mora that he no longer wished to continue after taking a flurry of punches in the fourth round. Official time was 1:27 of the fourth round. Bivol is the mandatory challenger to WBA Light Heavyweight titlist Nathan Cleverly, with Andre Ward holding “super champion” status in the same division prior to the main event. (more…)

Opinion: How To distinguish Boxer A, Boxer B

By Joe Koizumi

In the wake of the internationally scandalous scoring in the IBF bantamweight title bout between Ryan Burnett and Lee Haskins in UK last Saturday, this reporter would like to make some suggestions for a judge to distinguish Boxer A and Boxer B in a world title bout, as follows:

1. It is recommendable to have each boxer use gloves in different colors.

2. It is also recommendable to have each boxer wear trunks in different colors.

3. It has been customary only for the referee and the supervisor to go and give instructions to each contestant prior to the world title bout, but it is highly recommendable that three judges will also accompany them to the dressing room in order to watch the face and physique of the boxer so that the judges will be able to distinguish Boxer A and Boxer B never to confuse A with B in their scoring.
