Sylvester dominates Oral

Retains IBF belt, scores three knockdowns

Sauerland Event

By Karl Freitag

In one of his most impressive performances, IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester (34-3-1, 16 KOs) successfully defended his title for the third time with a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over #10 rated Mahir Oral (28-3-2, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Stadthalle in Rostock, Germany. Sylvester suffered a vertical cut over the right eye from a headbutt in round two, but he broke it open with a huge round four battering Oral around the ring with a sustained barrage of punches. Oral weathered the storm, but things didn’t get much better for him after that. Oral was dropped in round eight with some body shots and a left hook to the jaw. “The Hurrikan” put Oral down again in round nine and punished him further in the tenth. The champion scored another knockdown in round eleven, but Oral beat the count again and chose to continue and made it to the final bell. Scores were 117-107, 119-106, 117-107. (more…)

Cox crushes Augustin

Barbados cruiserweight Shawn “Sniper” Cox defeated Anthony Augustin of Guayana by first round TKO on Friday night at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall in Georgetown, Guyana. The former Commonwealth gold medalist started slowly, working behind a strong jab. Shawn quickly found an opening landing a four punch combination, punctuated with excellent right uppercut, that sent the Guyanese pugilist to the canvas. Augustin beat the count, but was on wobbly legs and referee Eion Jardine had seen enough. Shawn moves his record to 12 wins against one defeat and is now set to defend his WBC CABOFE title in Barbados on November 20th.

Torres, Gonzalez victorious

By Manuel “Quique” Roman

Lightweight Fernando Torres made a huge statement last night when he knocked out Juan Ramon Cruz in the first minute of the third round at the Centro de Convenciones in Guayama, Puerto Rico. From the first round, Torres established his jab and speed, making Cruz uncomfortable and desperate to land any punches. It was a perfect uppercut that took Cruz to the canvas. He never recovered and was provided medical assistance. Torres improved his record to 17-1-1, 10 KOs.

In the co-main event, welterweight knockout artist Jonathan “Mantequilla” Gonzalez, delivered, as promised, a first round knockout to Jimmy Le Blanc. Gonzalez now 10-0, 10 KOs, will headline the next Universal Promotions event on December 3rd at his hometown of San Juan, Puerto Rico when he will face Irving Garcia.

In other bouts, super bantamweight Carlos Valcarcel made his comeback to the ring knocking out Pedro “Torito” Rincon in the sixth round with a display of very good physical condition and skills.

Welliver halts Gregory

Photos and report by Bob Ryder

Chauncy Welliver used a non stop attack to overwhelm Brad Gregory in the main event of promoter John Carlisle’s show in Warren, MI on Friday night. Both Welliver and his trainer, former heavyweight contender Joe Hipp, had expressed to Fightnews before the contest that they have been working on being more aggressive and were seeking knockouts. It paid off this night. Spokane, WA heavyweight Welliver charged out of his corner at the opening bell winging punches at Gregory and never stepped off the gas. Gregory who hails from Wichita, KS was game and tried to fight Chauncy off him but Welliver was not to be denied. For more details and photos click here…

Q&A: Mariusz Wach

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Heavyweight Mariusz Wach (22-0, 10 KOs) is 6’8 and 250 pounds; his nickname “Polish Giant” makes sense. Wach will step into the ring to fight another big fighter, 6’6″ Kevin Burnett (13-4, 8 KOs) on the off-TV undercard of HBO’s November 6 telecast featuring Zab Judah against Lucas Matthysse in the main event. For Wach, this will be another chance to prove that the word “gentle” applies only to his off canvas demeanor.

“Maybe I’m not the flashiest heavyweight out there, but I like people to just quit in the ring, to know that they cannot beat me. It’s a boxing in black and white: good basics will beat flashy nine times out of ten,” says Wachs. (more…)

Helenius: Levin will pay

Photo: Ada Korhonen / Boxingcompany.Fi

Robert Helenius (13-0, 8 KOs) has promised to make Attila Levin (34-3, 21 KOs) pay for skipping their official press conference in Helsinki on Friday. The Nordic Nightmare took time out from his busy training schedule to fly to the Finnish capital for a media tour prior to his November 27th showdown with his Swedish rival. However, Levin never showed up, stating he could not afford to miss his daily practice. “That is a lame excuse,” Helenius, the EU Heavyweight Champion, said. “He is probably scared of me. Just taking the one-hour flight from Stockholm to Helsinki should not have been too much of a problem. He better gets all the training he can – he will need it on November 27. I am going to make him pay for not showing up today.” (more…)

Lara targets Martirosyan

Unbeaten middleweight Erislandy Lara (13-0, 8 KOs) has challenged unbeaten Vanes Martirosyan to prove who the best 154-pound prospect in the world is. “I’ve proven myself, especially this year, and now I want to let Vanes and fans around the world know that when you talk and my name comes out of your mouth, you better be ready to back it up,” said Lara. “If Vanes spent as much time in the gym as he did on the internet talking about real fighters, he might have been a world champion by now. I want the world to know that the talking stops here. I’ve told my team to make this fight and now it’s up to Vanes to see if he’s ready to put his money where his mouth is….Vanes calls himself the ‘Nightmare,’ but he can’t scare anyone with his fists.He’s your typical internet tough guy…a keyboard warrior afraid to step up and fight for real. I’m ready to go. Are you Vanes?”
