Middleweight contender Brian Vera (20-6, 12 KOs) got back to his winning ways with a workmanlike 8 round unanimous decision against the tough and durable Taronze Washington (14-17, 7 KOs) for the WPBF International middleweight title on Saturday night at the Fort Worth Convention Center Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. After only 3 weeks with new trainer Ronnie Shields, Vera got back to basics to score the one-sided victory. The scores read 79-73 twice and 80-72.

Vera was happy to get out of his former hometown with a win although he was not completely satisfied with his performance.

“I feel like I did alright, it’s a work in progress, I got hit too much overall. I am doing things I am supposed to be doing, so it’s a work in progress so far,” Vera stated after the fight. (more…)

Jermain Taylor found himself in a very familiar place late in his fight – the canvas – but unlike in the past, Taylor returned to his feet and took home the victory. Taylor controlled a large majority of the 10-round middleweight bout before Caleb Truax floored him with a right hand early in the ninth. Taylor won the second straight fight of his comeback campaign via unanimous decision by the scores of 98-91, 97-92 and 97-94 in the main event of tonight’s ShoBox: The New Generation doubleheader. In the SHOWTIME®-televised co-feature, Erislandy Lara demolished Ronald Hearns via TKO at 1:34 of round one in a scheduled 10-round junior middleweight bout from Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Miss.

Feature Story

Hasegawa decides to go on

By Joe Koizumi

Formerly two-class WBC champ Hozumi Hasegawa (29-4, 12 KOs), a Japanese southpaw, had been contemplating whether or not he would go on fighting after his shocking forfeiture of the newly acquired WBC feather belt via annihilation by Jhonny Gonzalez this April. Hasegawa, 30, declared he would return to ring warfare to pursue his fistic career once again at press conference on Monday at Shinsei Gym in Kobe, Japan. The Japanese lefty speedster registered ten defenses of the WBC bantam throne to his credit, but saw a nightmare when he coped with WBO ruler Fernando Montiel, succumbing by a fourth round TKO in April of the previous year. Having had a severe weight problem, Hasegawa jumped up two divisions and impressively acquired the vacant WBC feather belt by outhustling unbeaten Mexican Juan Carlos Burgos on points last November. Hasegawa, however, engaged in a mandated initial defense with the official challenger Gonzalez, whom he outpunched with quick combinations to be leading on points but whose pulverizing right dramatically turned the tide midway in the fourth canto. Hasegawa said, “I’d like to prove my power in the feather class and hope to enjoy fighting from now on.” Hasegawa had been originally a speedster dependent on his strategy of hitting without getting hit, but his KO streak in five title defenses gradually changed him into a puncher that loved to mix it up. His reckless tendency might cause a couple of stoppages by Montiel and Gonzalez, so he had better return to his previously favorite hit-and-run tactics, if possible. If so, he may be successful again even in the 126-pound category.
