WBO #5 super lightweight/IBF #7 lightweight Jose Felix Jr. (31-1-1, 24 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Marcos “El Tigre” Jimenez (20-5, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City, California. In a wild round one, Jimenez floored Felix, then Felix later dropped Jimenez. Things settled down after that with former world title challenger Felix outboxing Jimenez to win a competitive fight. Scores were 95-94, 95-94, 96-93. A point deducted from Jimenez for a low blow in round six was the difference.
Unbeaten WBO #11 light heavyweight Trevor McCumby (20-0, 16 KOs) stayed perfect with a first round annihilation of Brian Holstein (10-3, 7KOs). McCumby scored two quick knockdowns to end it.
Undefeated super featherweight prospect Pedro “Lil Pete” Duran (12-0, 9 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over Erick Orozco (5-3-2, 3 KOs). Duran floored Orozco twice in round six to end it. Time was 1:32.
2012 Olympic light heavyweight bronze medalist Oleksandr Gvozdyk (7-0, 6 KOs) scored an impressive fifth round TKO over Francisco “Panchito” Sierra (27-9-1, 24 KOs). Gvozdyk was victorious when Sierra couldn’t continue after round five
Former IBF lightweight title challenger Lenny Zappavigna (34-2, 24KOs), a new Freddie Roach trainee won his Top Rank debut with a sixth round TKO over Roman “Nino de Oro” Ayala (23-5-1, 11KOs). The referee waved it off at 2:40.
Unbeaten light heavyweight Erik Skoglund (23-0, 11 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Oleskandr Cherviak (15-5-1, 5 KOs) to retain his IBF Intercontinental title on Saturday night at the Rosvalla Stora Ishallen at the Nyköpings Arenor in Nyköping, Sweden. The bout was significant because this was the first bout approved for twelve rounds or more on Swedish soil since 1968. Swedish boxing was a big thing in the 1950s and 1960s when Ingemar Johansson ruled supreme and 53,615 spectators packed the Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg, but the sport was banned in Sweden from 1970 to 2006, and then only allowed back on a very limited basis.
In a final eliminator for the IBF super featherweight title, Stephen Smith (23-1, 13 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over game Devis Boschiero (37-4-1, 19 KOs) on Saturday night at the Olympia in Liverpool, England. IBF #4 rated Smith dropped #6 Boschiero twice in round two. Boschiero was down again in round four and his right eye was swollen shut. After two more knockdowns in round six the bout was finally stopped.
Earlier, in a surprise, previously unbeaten super lightweight Bradley Saunders (12-1, 9 KOs) was disqualified for headbutting journeyman Renald Garrido (15-11-1, 2 KOs) in the sixth round.

“I’m back in the ring against Saleta for two reasons: to find out if I can later compete at the highest level, and to convince my fans that my last very disappointing and boring fight (with Artur Szpilka) was just an aberration. I don’t want to stay retired with people remembering that, losing without a fight. I want to bring some old Adamek excitement back,” said former two-division champion and heavyweight contender, Tomasz Adamek (49-4, 29 KO) who finished his training camp before facing 47-year-old Przemek Saleta (44-7, 22 KO) in main event for Polsat Boxing Night on September 26 in Poland.

Former middleweight world champions Sam Soliman of Australia and Hassan N’Dam of France will collide in an IBF eliminator on November 21 in Paris, France.
“A win will give me the right to fight for the IBF middleweight number one spot which grants a mandatory title shot,” Soliman said. “I’m 40+, and my last fight has fueled my hunger and focused me on what I need to do to become a two-time world champion. I need to win this fight and win it well.
“I’m two fights away from having a chance to regain the world title I lost when I badly injured my knee fighting Jermain Taylor last year. I’ve knocked up more frequent flyer points than most boxers. I’ve always been prepared to travel anywhere and fight anyone, and this fight has IBF sanctioning as an eliminator for the #2 spot. (more…)

A 35-year-old Japanese veteran, Kenichi Horikawa (30-13-1, 7 KOs), 108, took no less than fifteen years to win a belt in his sixth attempt when he finally acquired the Japanese 108-pound belt as he displayed a career-best performance in battering formerly world-rated ex-OPBF ruler Shin Ono (18-7-2, 2 KOs), 108, into submission at 1:33 of the seventh round on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. We had never seen Horikawa in such a good form, while Ono in such a poor shape, and the process was so lopsided and the result was so upset before a stunned crowd except the winner’s adherents coming from Osaka.

Undefeated Angel Camacho Jr. stopped Rich Gingras in the eighth round of their main event bout at Twin River Casino to capture the New England and Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) international light heavyweight titles. The win extended Camacho’s unbeaten record to 15-0 with 6 KOs while Gingras – fighting for the first time in a year – dropped to 15-5-1. It was no doubt the biggest win of Camacho’s career, chopping down the gritty Gingras at the 1 minute, 57 second mark of the eighth round and ending a back-and-forth, see-saw battle.
The scheduled 10-round main event was the headliner of CES Boxing’s “Mayhem” card. Using his height and reach to his advantage, Providence’s Camacho got off to a fast start, out-boxing Gingras and effectively circling his opponent to score early and often. (more…)

Undefeated welterweight prospect Jamal James (18-0, 9 KOs) scored a spirited ten round unanimous decision over Juan Carlos “Merengue” Abreu (18-2, 17 KOs) on Friday night at Full Sail Live at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. Abreu dropped James in round four. James returned the favor by flooring Abreu in round six and then took over the bout from there. Scores were 97-91, 96-92, 96-92.
Another impressive performance for undefeated rising super welterweight Erickson “The Hammer” Lubin (12-0, 9 KOs), who scored a sixth round stoppage against game veteran Orlando Lora (31-6-3, 19 KOs). Lubin was credited with a knockdown when he knocked Lora into the ropes in round two and got a referee’s stoppage with a barrage of punches in round six. Time 1:58.
In a terrific scrap, super welterweight “Silky” Wilky Campfort (21-1, 12 KOs) scored a spectacular third round KO over Ronaldo “Salvaje” Montes (16-3, 14 KOs). Campfort recovered from a first round knockdown to drop Montes three times in round two. Lots of exciting toe-to-toe action. Time was 2:59.
In a clash of undefeated welterweights, Willie Jones (5-0, 2 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Jamal Harris (3-1, 1 KO). Jones leveled Harris with a left hook after the bell in round one and was deducted two points. Harris was given extra time to recover and went the full six, but despite the two-point deduction, Jones won 57-55, 58-54, 58-54. photos

Lightweight Marvin “Cachorro” Quintero (28-6, 24 KOs) scored an upset fifth round KO over Jeffery Fontanez (16-3, 12 KOs) on Friday night at the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
After a slow start in the opening round. Quintero shot a straight left at Fontanez in round two but Fontanez stalked and used his distance, in closing the round the two mixed it up exchanging power shots. In round three Quintero kept landing the straight left as Fontanez boxed and used his height and reach. Quintero landed a short right hook on Fontanez in round four as he followed up with a combination backing him to the ropes and in the closing seconds Quintero connected with a big shot. In round five, Quintero continued to apply pressure and a looping left dropped Fontanez. He got to his feet and Quintero followed up with another left sending him to the canvas for a second time. The fight continued and Quintero resumed his attack forcing the corner to throw in the towel as referee Jack Reiss stopped the fight at 2:21 of the fifth round. The fight was for the NABF title.

In the scheduled 8-round main event, heavyweight Travis Kauffman, 30-1, 24 KO, knocked out Epifanio Mendoza, 41-22-1, 35 KO, with two body shots in round two on Friday night at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ. Mendoza landed a sloppy right before Kauffman fired a right and left to the body. Mendoza went down from the body shots, and took referee Alan Huggins’ full 10-count on one knee.
“On a scale of one to ten, I’d have to give myself a 9,” Kauffman said. “That guy was a veteran. I think this was one of my best performances.”
Philly heavyweight Eddie Chambers, 43-4, 23 KO, made a successful return to the U.S. by scoring a third round TKO of Galen Brown, 42-32-1, 25 KO, St. Joseph, MO. Chambers put Brown on the floor with a pair of rights in the second round, but did not have time to finish him. In round three, Fast Eddie’s right hand knocked Brown into the ropes, and referee Mary Glover called it a knockdown. Moments later, Chambers drove home another right that floored Brown and prompted the referee to stop the fight without a count. The time was 1:34 of the third. (more…)

The sport of mixed martial arts is a complex beast – one that is uncertain by its very nature. On one end of the spectrum there is the fast-paced, big tent promotion of the must see extravaganza about to unfold, but on the other, a battle that forces those involved to tap into the depths of something primal, all the while having the grace and agility to fire off hands, feet and knees with the precision that has come from countless hours of sharpening through preparation . . . .

No official pay-per-view numbers have been announced for Saturday’s clash between Floyd Mayweather and Andre Berto, and it’s unlikely any official numbers will be announced. According to several industry sources, the fight did 550,000 buys. If those numbers are accurate, with Mayweather’s $32 million guarantee, Showtime figures to have lost millions.
And it could be even worse. Las Vegas-based Kevin Iole/Yahoo Sports is on the record with a report that there were only 400,000 PPV buys. Either way, Showtime takes a bath.

After receiving criticism from WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko earlier in the week over the level of his opposition, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder stated today that Wlad’s opposition has been similar for the last decade.
“For him to make that statement is for him to really criticize his own self or talk bad about himself,” stated Wilder. “If he’s talking about opponents or whatever, he’s been doing the same thing for over a decade. He’s been fighting guys we don’t know names or how to pronounce or where the hell they came from, they came out of a rabbit box. For him to say that is very laughable for me.
“For him being the champion for so many years and having done that, then try to talk about opponents for me…he already knows what it’s gonna be when he faces me. Of course, if I fight everybody at the top then that lessens the chance of him having to face me because I feel he wants me to lose to someone so he can have an easier match for him when it’s time for me and him to fight.”
Wilder will defend his title against Johann Duhaupas on September 26 at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, with televised coverage on NBC. Klitschko defends against Tyson Fury in an HBO fight on October 24 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Undefeated heavyweight Gerald “El Gallo Negro” Washington, (16-0, 11 KOs) battles Amir “Hardcore” Mansour (22-1, 16 KOs) in the 10-round main event on the Tuesday, October 13 edition of PBC Toe-To-Toe Tuesdays on FS1 and Fox Deportes from the Little Creek Resort Casino in Shelton, Washington. Also featured on the card are 2012 United States Olympian and undefeated heavyweight Michael Hunter, (9-0, 6KOs) and light heavyweight knockout artist Ahmed Elbiali, (12-0, 11KOs) in separate bouts.
Gerld Washington: “I’m looking forward to stepping into the ring with Amir Mansour. This is my time to make a statement. I will make an example of Amir Mansour to let the heavyweight division know that there’s a new sheriff in town. No more ‘Mr. Nice Guy’, it’s time for me to bring the pain!”
Amir Mansour: “Gerald Washington has not even come close to fighting someone of my caliber. He has zero advantage except for height and I’m experienced enough to take that away. The match against me is going to introduce Washington to an entirely new world of fighting and I’m sure he isn’t prepared for this type of fight.”
Undefeated featherweight Joseph “JoJo” Diaz Jr. (17-0, 10 KOs) makes his fourth appearance at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, on October 23 against Mexican brawler Ruben “Canelito” Tamayo (23-6-4, 15 KOs) in the 10-round featherweight main event on Estrella TV.
