Wilder: Whoever steps foot in that ring is going to get punished

By Arvin Nundloll
Photos: Emily Harney

Deontay Wilder took time on Saturday to talk about his return to the ring in January 16, 2016 at the Barclays Center to defend his WBC heavyweight belt against an unnamed opponent for now.

When asked about fighting at Brooklyn and the short notice, Wilder was excited to get back in the ring but was upset at his opponents pulling out at the last minute.

I’m very excited to fight on January 16 and to display my talents there.

It’s frustrating, the frustrating part about it having an opponent that’s ranked in the states and all of the sanctions and a deal that’s been done for a few months and then all of a sudden they see an opportunity and then they take the easier route.

I think it’s very disrespectful and unprofessional in my opinion to have something set up and then take an easier route. But either way it goes were going to do the best that we can for an opponent to help put me on the 16th, the only thing I can do is apologize to the people about that.

I’m looking to unify the division, that’s my main goal. Whoever steps foot in that ring is going to get punished.

I promise you guys that I’ll unify the division and be the first American since 1999, since Lennox Lewis.

Daniel Jacobs: I’m willing to take on the best and I’m in my prime

By Arvin Nundloll

WBA regular middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs was justifiably amped up after his spectacular first round TKO win over previously unbeaten Brooklyn rival Peter Quillin on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

“If it’s the winner of Lee-Saunders, then it’s something I have to do. If I have to fight my mandatory (Chris Eubank Jr.), then that’s something I have to do,” Jacobs told reporters. “I feel like I’m on fire now. I’m willing to take on the best and I’m in my prime.”

“It’s bittersweet. I’m just grateful that I’m able to prove the doubters wrong. Boxing is always about proving yourself and I think with tonight’s victory, that’s what we did. We have techniques in the gym that we work on that’s called ‘rumble,’ so when we have guys hurt we know exactly what punches to put together, what to bombard a guy with and corral a guy with and get the stoppage.”

“I’m a new champion, I’m a new kid on the block!”

Quillin says ref was “definitely doing his job”

By Arvin Nundloll

Former world champion Peter Quillin speaks after suffering his first career loss, an 85 second TKO against WBA regular middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Peter Quillin: “I’m the same person I was before this setback. I learned something very valuable in this camp while preparing for this fight, no matter what you do or prepare for, God is in control. Harvey (referee Harvey Dock) was definitely doing his job. I was always sending prayers to Prichard Colon and I could never imagine being in that moment. It’s best that people like that who have those types of job do the best that they can do so we can avoid situations happen like that.”

“[Jacobs] was determined. When someone’s determined you can’t take that away from them. What more can you lose to a guy that’s determined and trying his hardest to do what he’s got to do?”

Ambunda retains IBO belt

By Ron Jackson

Paulos Ambunda of Namibia completely outclassed Jason Cooper from Australia over 12 rounds to retain the IBO super bantamweight belt at the Ramatex Factory in Windhoek on Saturday night. Judges Simon Xamlashe (South Africa) and Eddie Poppoe (Ghana) scored it 117-111 and 120-108 whereas judge Lahcen Oumghar (Netherlands) had it a way out 115-113.

The 35-year-old Ambunda (55.15kg) who was making the first defence of his belt that he won in August this year when he outpointed Leandro David Esperante for the vacant title dominated the fight from the opening round as he piled up the points with his educated left jab. Cooper (55.05kg) who is only ranked at No. 38 by the IBO was never in the fight as the stocky and more experienced Ambunda scored with stinging blows to the head throughout. In rounds eleven and twelve Ambunda resorted to unnecessary show boating and was fortunate not be cautioned by referee Dean Dwarte (SA).

The 24-year-old Australian fought a courageous battle and it was only due to Ambunda’s lack of punching power that saw him see out the distance, Ambunda a former WBO bantamweight champion improved his record to 24-1, 10 KOs, and Cooper’s record dropped to 14-3-1, 7 KOs. (more…)

In the main event of a Showtime-televised card from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, WBA middleweight title-holder Danny Jacobs blew out former WBO middleweight title-holder Peter Quillin in just 85 seconds. Jacobs (31-1, 28 KOs) hurt Quillin almost immediately with a flush right. Quillin backed into the ropes where the two Brooklynites exchanged hard shots. It was Quillin (32-1-1, 23 KOs) who came out of it worse,and two other Jacobs rights had him wobbling across the ring. Referee Harvey Dock took a quick look at the wide-eyed stare of Quillin and called the fight off with the fighter still standing. Quillin didn’t protest the stoppage, either, although some in attendance found it to be a premature call.

In the final fight of the night at the Barclays Center on Saturday female super featherweight Heather Hardy maintained her unblemished record (and sent her local fans home happy) with an eight-round unanimous decision win against Noemi Bosques. Judges scored the fight 80-72 (twice) and 79-73, all for Hardy, now 15-0 with 3 KO’s.

Former WBO junior welterweight champion and current #6 in the world, Chris Algieri, continued his comeback trail with a 10 round points win over Erick Bone. Algieri knocked down Bone in the 8th en route to a dominant points victory. Algieri pressed the action from the start of round 1, syncing his hook and jab to deliver some excellent 1-2 combinations to slow down Bone. Algieri showcased his superior footwork by controlling the pace of the fight and closing off the ring to Bone, quickly throwing a hook to keep Bone thinking twice before coming in. The action slowed down towards the middle rounds, Algieri doing enough to stay ahead by timing his jab as Bone came forward to close the distance. Round 7 saw Algieri move to the body to try and wear down Bone. In the 8th round, Algieri knocked down Bone with a perfectly time body shot, a right hook to the ribs, that put Bone down just as the round was drawing to a close. Both Algieri and Bone went toe-to-toe in the 9th round, delighting the crowd as both let their guards down and traded hooks. At the end of 10 rounds of boxing, the judges at ringside scored the fight 95-94, 97-92 and 97-92 all to Chris Algieri. Algieri is now 21-2 with 8 KOs while Bone moves to 16-3 with 8 KOs. (more…)

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder held a press conference Saturday to discuss his January 16 title defense against an opponent to be named.

Deontay Wilder: “It’s frustrating, having no opponent…Anywhere I go, I’m always going to get criticized for fighting. If I were to beat Klitschko, people would say ‘he’s passed his prime.'”

[On his mandatory defense against Alexander Povetkin] “I’ll go anywhere. If he wins the purse bids, then we have to pack our bags and these warm coats and these leather gloves. If that happens and we have to go to Russia, we’ll be prepared.”

[On Vyacheslav Glazkov opting not to fight him] “It’s very disereptful to have something set up and then (have an opponent) take an easier route.”

[On fighting in Brooklyn] “Vegas is one thing, but we need somewhere else now and that is at the Barclays Center.”

Promoter Lou DiBella: [On rumors of Wilder facing Artur Szpilka] “This is a Showtime fight…there is no opponent and no discussion took place about that.”

‘Professor’ Fox Teaches Lesson In Maryland

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Forestville, MD super lightweight Mykal “The Professor” Fox remained undefeated with a six-round unanimous decision over Adam “Bad Boy” Mate of Budapest, Hungary during the main event of the King’s Promotions card at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD. The 20-year-old Fox, making his King’s Promotions debut, systematically broke Mate down throughout the contest with a strong right jab and solid left hands to the body and head. The 6’4″ Fox used his height very well and Mate never could overcome the height differential as he went into survival mode by the fourth round.

“Once the jab landed, we started to open up from there and in rounds two and three we started touching the body with the jab,” Fox said. “After we started throwing combinations ending with the left to the body, his body language started to tell the story.”

Fox is now 8-0, two KO’s while Mate falls to 17-7, 10 KO’s. (more…)
