Delvin Rodriguez (24-2-2, 14 KOs) overcame injury and an early deficit to win a unanimous decision over Shamone Alvarez (20-2, 11 KOs) Friday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville , Connecticut . Rodriguez, fighting in front of his hometown crowd, had all types of problems early on with Alvarez’s southpaw attack. It was a combination of the knockdown he scored in the eleventh and his ability to stay on his own two feet in round twelve that sealed the victory for Rodriguez by scores of 115-112, 114-113, and 114-113. Undefeated welterweight Raymond Serrano improved to (9-0, 5 KOs) with an entertaining six round decision over Jay Krupp (12-2, 5 KOs ).

Valuev: I want Chagaev next!

WBA heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev is eager to fight “champion in recess” Ruslan Chagaev as soon as possible to finally clear the confusion surrounding the belts. After twice pulling out of a meeting with the Russian Giant, the Universum fighter had been named “champion in recess” last summer. Valuev went on to capture the vacant title by defeating John Ruiz in Berlin before making a successful defence against Evander Holyfield in December. Even though the WBA ordered Valuev to defend against Chagaev on the latter´s return from injury to determine the unified champion, Chagaev requested a special permit from the WBA to fight Carl Davis Drumond instead. The special permit was granted, and Chagaev won, leaving the WBA with a “champion” as well as a rather active “champion in recess”. “Enough is enough,” Valuev said. “All this confusion has to end. There is just one way to determine the true champion and that is by meeting in the ring. I want to show the boxing world that I am the true WBA heavyweight champion. And I want to avenge the only loss of my career. I want to take on Chagaev as soon as possible.” (more…)

St. Claire confident of victory!

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former world IBF jr lightweight champion Gairy St Claire (41-8-2, 18 KOs) who has lived in Australia for several years, is confident he will defeat hot Australian prospect Lenny Zappavigna (17-0, 13 KOs) when he challenges for the IBF Pan Pacific jr welterweight title at The Cube, Campbelltown, NSW, Australia on Wednesday. “Lenny has never met a boxer with my experience,” said St Claire. “I have boxed great boxers like Diego Corrales and Vivian Harris. I won the world title by defeating Cassius Baloyi in his home town in Africa. I have trained hard for Lenny and I will take him to school.” Australia’s No.1 promoter Bill Treacy said, “The Zappavigna vs St Claire bout will be a great bout. Both boxers bring a lot to the ring – Zappa looked fantastic in stopping two time world challenger Tommy Browne in 2008. Gairy will be a tough test for Lenny – he has boxed the very best featherweights and lightweights over several years. Lenny is only 21 years of age and has a big future.” Televised nationally on Foxtel Main Event Television.

Enoki finishes Diego!

By Joe Koizumi

WBA#8 ex-OPBF feather champ Hiroyuki Enoki (28-1-2, 20 KOs), 128, engaged in a comebacking bout after his unsuccessful attempt to win the WBA throne from Chris John last October, and displayed a clearcut KO victory over Indonesian national ruler Ardi Diego (8-2-1, 5 KOs), 128, with a single vicious body shot at 3:06 of the third round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Enoki, a Larry Holmes stylist (though not so tall) utilizing his trademark stinging lefts, showed solid jabs to the good-looking and taller Indonesian, dominating the first two sessions with ease. The 29-year-old Japanese accelerated his attack in the third, when he landed strong jabs to have his opponent’s attention upstairs, and then dug a wicked shot to the belly. Diego, 22, sank in agnoy to be counted out there. Though Enoki couldn’t avenge his sole defeat by Chris John by finishing his compatriot Indonesian Diego, he showed a good form to be gunning for a shot at the winner of the forthcoming WBC feather title bout between Oscar Larios and Takahiro Aoh (with whom he previously fought to a unanimous draw with his OPBF belt at stake eleven months ago) next Thursday. Promoter: Kadoebi Promotions.
