Female Champs Yamaguchi, Fujioka to collide

Report and Photos by Joe Koizumi

WBA female super-flyweight champ Naoko Yamaguchi (22-3-3, 18 KOs), formerly a javelin thrower, will put her belt on the line as she will face unbeaten compatriot, WBC strawweight titlist Naoko Fujioka (10-0, 6 KOs) in a sensational encounter in Tokyo, Japan, on November 13. The confrontation of the female champs was announced by Yoko Gushiken, ex-WBA junior fly champ who kept it thirteen times to his credit and is currently the promoter handling the hard-punching champ Yamaguchi.

Yamaguchi, making her third defense, dethroned Tsunami Tenkai in July of the previous year, and impressively kept it twice by defeating Mexican Judith Rodriguez (W10) and Italian Loredana Piazza (TKO7) to show her strength before her adherents. Her counterpart Fujioka, formerly national amateur champ, turned professional late at the age of thirty-four, and quickly captured the WBC 105-pound belt in her sixth pro bout by halting Anabel Ortiz after the eighth session in 2011. Fujioka dropped the Mexican defending champ and retired her on the stool. Since then, she kept her belt just twice chiefly because she had a great difficulty finding a challenger to fight with her belt at stake. (more…)

George Groves announces new trainer ahead of Froch showdown

World-ranked super-middleweight contender ‘Saint’ George Groves has announced that Ireland’s Paddy Fitzpatrick will take over training duties ahead of his WBA and IBF world title tilt against Carl ‘The Cobra’ Froch on November 23. The announcement comes days after Groves and trainer Adam Booth parted ways following a five-year working relationship and marks the next chapter in the 25-year-old’s promising ring career.

“I am extremely happy to name Paddy Fitzpatrick as my new trainer going into what is the biggest fight of my life,” said Groves, the former British and Commonwealth super-middleweight champion. “Paddy and I have worked closely together in the past and already have a very good relationship, one built over many years. Not only has he worked my corner for important fights, we have also spent a lot of time together when abroad on training camps, where Paddy has overseen a number of significant sessions. (more…)

Cotto ready for new chapter with Roach

By Phil Doherty
Photo: Chris Farina/Top Rank

Upon first glance it might appear strange to the casual observer that Puerto Rican superstar boxer Miguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KOs) would start training with Freddie Roach in Los Angeles at this late stage of his career. Cotto speaks mostly Spanish and Roach speaks English. Cotto traditionally trains on the East Coast while Roach works out of the Wild Card Gym in LA. Sure Cotto implemented a revolving door of cornermen since his well documented dust-up with uncle Evangelista back in 2009 but one assumes he would prefer to be the only superstar in his trainer’s stable. Roach continues to train Filipino sensation Manny Pacquiao, who readies himself for a tough fight against Brandon Rios on November 23rd.

However, after listening to the two men discuss their current camp in advance of Miguel’s October 5th showdown in Orlando against Delvin Rodriguez (28-6-3, 16 KOs) the reasons become clear. (more…)

By Ron Jackson

South Africa’s Danie Venter smashed Shawn Cox from Barbados to defeat after 1 minute 42 seconds into the first round to win the vacant World Boxing Federation cruiserweight belt at the Heartfelt Arena, in Thaba Tshwane, Pretoria on Friday night. A right to the jaw dropped the southpaw Cox about 20 seconds into the round, and he never fully recovered although he staggered to his feet.

Venter improved his record to 17-6-2, 12 KOs and Cox dropped to 17-3, 16 KOs. (more…)

Mcotheli wins vacant Eastern Cape title

By Ron Jackson

In an outstanding performance Xolani Mcotheli completely dominated Baxolise Mthexeshi before stopping him in the sixth round to win the vacant Eastern Cape junior lightweight title at the Orient Theatre in East London on Sunday afternoon. From the opening bell the shorter Mcotheli (58.95kg) boxing from behind the jab outboxed the slow moving Mthexeshi through the first four rounds. The slick moving Mcotheli landed with some stinging punches to the head and body that hurt Mthexeshi (58,10kg) through round five. It was a weary looking Mthexeshi who came out at the bell for the sixth round and after taking a series of lefts and rights to the head that left him staggering around the ring his corner threw in the towel as referee Vabaza Booi stepped and waved the fight off at 29 seconds into the round.

Chisora batters Gerber to win vacant European heavyweight crown

Copper Box, London:

In a clash for the vacant European heavyweight championship, Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora (18-4, 12 KOs) scored a five round beatdown of Edmund Gerber (23-2, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Copper Box Arena in London. Chisora came into the ring in great shape and worked over Gerber during the first three rounds. Gerber connected with two good rights in round four, but Chisora rocked Gerber in the fifth and for the second consecutive fight got a fairly quick stoppage from the referee. In this fight the referee was Guido Cavalleri. Time was 2:50. After the fight, Chisora’s promoter Frank Warren called for a December rematch between Chisora and Tyson Fury, whose fight with David Haye fell through due to a cut suffered by Haye.

In a clash of unbeaten middleweights, Billy Joe Saunders (19-0, 10 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over John Ryder (15-1, 9 KOs) to retain his British and Commonwealth belts in a bout that took place late, late at night.

David Haye-Tyson Fury fight postponed due to Haye suffering a cut eye, Haye “gutted”

By James Slater

If fans didn’t know already, September 28th’s all-British clash between Tyson Fury and David Haye has been postponed due to Haye suffering a cut above his left eye during training. Haye suffered the injury on Friday evening and required six stitches, which will remain in place for five to seven days and Haye is waiting on further medical advice when it comes to when he will be able to return to action.

Haye, who pulled out of his summer fight with Manuel Charr due to a hand injury, has now seen two fights in succession fall apart. In a statement, the former WBA heavyweight champ said he is “beyond gutted.” “Gutted isn’t even the word,” Haye said today. “Mentally, I’m on the floor at the moment. I’m devastated most of all for my loyal fans, my family and my team, as well as Tyson Fury and his team. I know cuts and injuries are part and parcel of our sport, but this doesn’t change the feeling of disappointment and sadness I’m experiencing right now.

“To everyone who has bought tickets, booked hotels, and followed this fight since it was announced, there is absolutely nothing I can do expect apologize from the very bottom of my heart.”

The fight, just a week away, has shifted all it’s tickets in just three hours and big business was expected from fans buying the fight on Sky Box Office.

There is no word yet on whether the entire card will be postponed, or whether Fury might face a late replacement foe instead.

Can upset artist Derrick Wilson do it again?

derrickwilson300
By Karl Freitag

Featherweight Derrick Wilson (10-4-2, 3 KOs) is no stranger to upsetting the applecart. The 24-year-old Fort Myers, Florida native has already derailed the careers of highly touted unbeaten prospects Charles Huerta and Braulio Santos. Tonight, for the first time in his career, he is fighting outside the USA, taking WBC #2 rated featherweight Robinson “Robin” Castellanos for Castellanos’ WBC silver belt at the Oasis Arena in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

“I think this fight will be easier for me than my last [against Santos],” Wilson said. “My last fight was hard, a real challenge, against an undefeated fighter. This guy [Castellanos] has already tasted losing before. I’m more talented than him, skill-wise, and he doesn’t have the power or speed to stay up with me. My skills will overpower him.”

Maybe it won’t be quite so easy. Castellanos, who had an 8-9 start to his pro career, has now won ten straight, including a decision over formidable former multi-division world champion Celestino Caballero in his last fight. “I will try to win this fight by KO,” commented Castellanos. “I want to end this fast!”

“He’s just another person in the ring with me,” insists Wilson. Can Derrick make the magic happen again? The FOX Deportes broadcast will air live tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT in the United States. 2004 United States Olympian Vicente Escobedo squares off against Fernando Carcamo in the co-feature.

Dawson survives against Bunema

By Brett Bonetti at ringside

Daniel “The Rock” Dawson (40-3 -1, 26 KOs) defeated Alex Bunema (31-10-2, 17 KOs) to claim the vacant WBF Light Middleweight Title and also keep his PABA Light Middleweight Title in the Main Event of CDL Boxing Promotions “Western Alliance” at the WA Italian Club, North Perth, Australia tonight. Dawson had dominated the fight and was the busier fighter through 11 rounds as he continually landed good body shots, left hooks and uppercuts. Bunema seemed like the more dangerous fighter when he landed some power shots with his right hand, but did not follow it up enough. Early in the 12th and final round and sensing he was behind on points, Bunema went after Dawson and caught him early with a powerful left hook. Dawson was hurt and Bunema chased and was following up with a barrage of punches with many connecting. Dawson looked out on his feet at times and surprisingly did not try to tie Bunema up, but instead tried to duck and weave. The crowd was roaring on their feet as Bunema was on the brink of stopping Dawson and stealing the fight, but after a frantic final 2 minutes of the fight, Dawson managed to survive until the final bell and staggered back to his corner.
