By Edgar Gonzalez

“I want to fight mega-fights,” said 37-year-old three-division world champ Sugar Shane Mosley (46-5, 39 KOs) after dethroning reigning welterweight king Antonio Margarito (37-6, 27 KOs) with a barrage of right hands in the ninth round of a scheduled twelve.  Mosley controlled most of the rounds with a picture perfect game plan of boxing from the outside and clinching in the inside to slow down the much bigger Margarito, who never looked to be in the fight. Mosley, the local boy from Pomona, California, was very respectful toward Margarito. “Just because he lost you shouldn’t see him any different. I tip my hat to Margarito. He stepped in the ring with a veteran such as myself. We worked very hard in Big Bear and it showed tonight.” (more…)

Shane Mosley (46-5, 39 KOs) is a world champion again as he dominated WBA welterweight world champion Antonio Margarito (37-6, 27 KOs) , earning a stoppage victory in the ninth round before a pro-Margarito crowd at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, CA. The 20,820 in attendance was the largest crowd to ever see an event at the arena. Mosley began the bout aggressively and won most of the exchanges between the two fighters. Margarito had his moments during the middle rounds, but Mosley consistently landed the harder and more effective combinations. Mosley hurt Margarito, ultimately dropping him at the end of the eighth round. Although Margarito survived the round, Mosley went in for the kill in the ninth round and had Mrrgarito reeling against the ropes until Margarito’s corner threw in the towel, prompting referee Raul Caiz to stop the bout at 43 seconds of the round.

In his first bout under the Golden Boy Promotions banner, Robert Guerrero (23-1-1, 16 KO’s) stopped Edel Ruiz (31-22-4, 22 KO’s) in the first round. A hard left hook to the body ended matters at 43 seconds as referee Jack Reiss stopped the bout. A two-time world champion at the featherweight limit, Guerrero is now campaigning at 130 pounds. This was his first fight in 11 months.

2000 Olympian Matvey Korobov (3-0, 3 KO’s) destoyed Jose Florentino at 2:28 of the first round. The Russian Middleweight dropped Florentino to the canvas with two left hands.

Highly regarded European champion Marco Huck (24-1, 19 KOs) retained his belt in front of a fully packed Erdgas Arena in Riesa, Sachsen, Germany, destroying previously undefeated yet untested Belgium knockout artist Geoffrey Battelo (18-1, 15 KOs) at the end of the third round. Battelo fearlessly started the action in the first round, trying to stalk Huck around the ring to a little success though. The Belgian fighter worked behind the jab but EBU titleholder Huck (IBF #3 and WBA/WBC #6) established a solid defense to negate Battelo’s best punches. At the end of the round Huck connected with a couple of huge blows himself almost knocking off-balance Battelo down. The pace was measured in the second round with Battelo trying to turn the bout into brawl. Huck was well aware of these intentions keeping Belgian guest at the end of his jab. Both fighters stated toe-to-toe action in the third round but Marco Huck was by far the best of the two in exchanges. Battelo was slightly wobbled since the midst of the third stanza, considerably wobbled at the start of the last minute and finally went down after a huge right uppercut by Huck with only twenty seconds remaining. Battelo barely beat the count but Huck jumped right on him firing punches in bunches. The fight was stopped right near the bell (2:57) by referee Guido Cavalleri. All in all, another impressive performance by Huck who is in line for tougher challenges from now on. (more…)

Holmes decisions Dowdy!

By Jacob Chavez at ringside

Octavius James’ One In a Million Boxing, Inc. kicked off the New Year with a night of solid boxing action on Friday night at the Radisson Star Plaza in Merrillville, Indiana.

Their first encounter during February of last year was marred by excessive holding by Dowdy to the point of disqualification. This time around proved to be very similar, as Dowdy’s main arsenal consisted of hitting while holding onto Holmes’ body; but for this match they would go the distance. (more…)

Pacman-Hitman tickets!

By Nick Giongco

The most expensive ticket to the May 2 brawl between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton will be priced at $1,000, Top Rank big boss Bob Arum told Manila Bulletin and Fightnews on Friday. The fight will be held at the 17,000-capacity MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas but the venue will be reconfigured to seat a little more than 16,000 plus, according to the Harvard-educated lawyer and Hall of Fame promoter. Tickets will go on sale starting Friday, Jan. 30, and not all will be sold to the public since the MGM Properties as well as Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions, which promote the British superstar, will also be given their respective allotments. When Pacquiao faced Oscar De La Hoya last year, only 600 tickets went on sale for the public since the vast majority had been purchased by the promotional outfits and even by the casinos. Arum said he will work hard to increase the number to accommodate more fight fans. Hatton is bringing in hordes of fans from England. Meanwhile, Arum revealed that the Staples Center will hold the biggest number of spectators ever when Mexican ironman Antonio Margarito defends the world welter crown against the dazzling Shane Mosley tonight.

Zuniga tops Stanislavjevic!

Super Middleweight gatekeeper Fernando Zuniga won a lopsided eight round unanimous decision over veteran Danny Stanislavjevic at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, CA. Zuniga looked rusty from the outset of the fight and was cut across his left eye in the second round. However, Zuniga (28-9, 20 KOs) found his rhythm and wore down the game Stanislavjevic (8-15-3, 4 KOs). All three judges scored the bout 80-72 in favor of Zuniga.
———-
Also featherweight Jesus Hernandez (8-0, 2 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Manuel Sarabia. Hernandez was the busier and more accurate fighter throughout the fight. Sarabia (16-28-9, 10 KOs) had his moments in the latter half of the fight, but could not overcome Hernandez’ cleaner and more effective punches. All three judges scored the bout 60-54 in favor of Hernandez. All Star Boxing Promotions presented the seven-bout “Battle of the Rising Stars” card.

Tonight at Isleta Resort & Casino in Albuquerque, N.M.: In what was her most exciting performance to date, Albuquerque’s Holly Holm (23-1-3, 6 KOs) outboxed–but did not outslug France’s Myriam Lamare (16-3, 9 KOs) over ten rounds to retain her WIBA welterweight belt. Holm built up an early lead, landing crisp rights on her foe, but Lamare came alive in the late rounds, bombing Holm with big rights and looping lefts. The scorecards read 96-94, 98-92 and 97-93 for Holm. Fightnews had it 96-94 for Holm. In the scheduled eight-round co-main, Bloomfield jr. middle Joe “Ironman” Gomez (16-1-1, 8 KOs) stopped Jose Luis Cruz (12-15-3, 4 KOs), of San Diego, Calif., at 2:35 of round four.

Making his first defense, the 27-year-old Mabuza (63.20kg) stunned Mgidi (63.20kg) early in the fight with a left hook which set the pattern for the rest of the fight. The taller Mgidi, 27, with a reported record 17-4-2; 12 never threw a punch in anger other than a few left jabs which fell short and he had no answer to the left hooks coming in from the champion.
