Fury decisions Guinn, Eubank stops Blackwell

Unbeaten heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury (19-0, 10 KOs) scored a lopsided ten round unanimous decision over late sub Dominick Guinn (35-11-1, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at Wembley Arena in London, England. The 6’6 Fury was in command every minute of the fight against Guinn, who has never been stopped. Score was 100-90. Hughey is the cousin of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

In a good action scrap, WBA #2, WBC #4 middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr (22-1, 17 KOs) dethroned British champion Nick Blackwell (19-4-1, 8 KOs) via tenth round TKO. Eubank outclassed and busted up the very tough and game Blackwell and the brutal bout was finally stopped in round ten due to swelling around Blackwell’s left eye. Blackwell was taken from the ring on a stretcher.

Now campaigning as a light heavyweight, Frank Buglioni (17-2-1, 14 KOs) destroyed journeyman Olegs Fedotovs (21-25, 15 KOs) in the first round.

Kovalev Predicts Ward will Defeat Barrera

By Robert Hough

WBA, IBF, WBO light heavyweight world champion Sergey Kovalev predicted Saturday afternoon that Andre Ward would have more skill and talent than Sullivan Barrera can handle. Kovalev, who plans to fight summer, met the media before the Ward fight. “He can do more in the ring,” Kovalev said of Ward, who makes his light-heavyweight debut. “He can do more things; he’s more professional.”

Kathy Duva, Kovalev’s promoter, said it is premature to talk about a location or opponent for the Russian’s fight this summer.

Kovalev, who has been scathing in speaking of fighters like Jean Pascal and Adonis Stevenson, was expansive in his praise of Ward. “He’s a very polite guy, a very quiet guy,” he said. “He doesn’t talk any trash; he’s a gentleman. He’s a nice man and a nice boxer and I like him. I cannot say anything bad about him – yet.”

WBO #1 Sakae loses to Japanese 105lb champ Fukuhara

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

Previously unbeaten Japanese prospect, WBO#1/IBF#6/WBA#8 Takumi Sakae (13-1, 8 KOs), 104.75, tasted his first setback when he failed to win the Japanese national minimumweight belt from defending titlist Tatsuya Fukuhara (17-4-5, 4 KOs), 104.75, by losing a unanimous verdict (97-93 twice, 98-94) over ten see-saw rounds on Saturday in Kumamoto, Japan.

Fukuhara, a more experienced southpaw though having lost to future world champ Yu Kimura and ex-amateur champ Takuma Inoue in his pro debut, had the upper hand with his better precision and smarter distribution of stamina. Sakae attempted to take the leadoff in earlier rounds, but consumed his energy to be fading in later rounds. Fukuhara, battering him upstairs and downstairs, kept piling up points steadily and maintained the initiative all the way.

Promoter: Honda Fitness Promotions.

Corcoran defeats Butler for WBO Intl belt

corcoran300
Wembley’s Gary Corcoran beat Danny Butler to claim the Vacant WBO Intercontinental Junior-Middleweight Championship at London’s York Hall on Friday night. The natural-born scrapper was on the front foot from the off and dominated large parts of the bout; securing a unanimous decision win with scores of 100-89, 99-90 and 100-89.

‘Hell Raiser’ lived up to his name and came flying out his corner in the opening round, peppering Butler with hooks and jabs. Both men were happy to stand and trade at will; making for an explosive start to the evening’s bill-topper.

All-action Corcoran refused to take and step back and chased down Butler throughout the opening rounds. Butler gave as good as he got and landed some strong combinations of his own. The fight began to swing in Corcoran’s favour in the seventh round. Corcoran’s blistering hand speed had Butler in trouble, the Bristol man was pinned up against the ropes throughout the seventh and took a tumble out of the ring. (more…)

Galina Ivanova: Dina Thorslund is still a kid, I’ll beat her with one hand

By Ognian Georgiev / Bulgaria Today

Former world and European female champion Galina Ivanova (16-11-4, 2 KOs) has been very active in the last couple of days in social media attacking the unbeaten super-bantamweight prospect Dina “Blonde Bomber” Thorslund (6-0, 4 KOs). 38-year veteran started her pro career in the previous millennium and the southpaw stylist fought around the world and won many belts. Fightnews reached Galina Ivanova to learn more about her plans.

Galina, you wrote some harsh words towards Dina Thorslund in the social media. Is there any reason behind it?

I was provoked by Nisse Sauerland’s words that Thorslund may become a world champion in the next 12 months. It’s funny, because the girl just started with pro boxing. She had just few fights with some walking bags. Only one of her opponents is with a positive balance. (more…)

Unbeaten lightweight Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (17-0, 14 KOs) annihilated Aaron “The Jewel” Herrera (29-5-1, 18 KOs) in the first round on Friday night at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. A Prograis right hook to the body put Herrera down for the count. Time was 2:17.

In a clash of unbeaten welterweights, Ivan “The Volk” Golub (11-0, 9 KOs) scored a six round TKO over Marlon Aguas (9-1, 6 KOs). Good action fight. Both fighters scored knockdowns in round two. Golub floored a fatigued Aguas at the end of round six and the bout was stopped during the break.

Paul Williams-trained super welterweight Justin DeLoach (14-1, 8 KOs) scored a sensational fourth round KO over previously unbeaten hometown favorite Dillon Cook (16-1, 6 KOs).

Broner Accused of Violent Robbery w/Gun

By TMZSports.com

WBA super lightweight world champion Adrien Broner is a wanted man — after allegedly beating the crap out of a guy outside a Cincinnati bowling alley in a violent robbery with a gun … TMZ Sports has learned. A source with knowledge of the incident confirms … Broner has been charged with felonious assault and aggravated robbery and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Multiple sources connected to the case tell us the incident in question went down around 3:30 AM on January 21st — after Broner and another man had been making high stakes bets with each other at the lanes.

The alleged victim told police … Broner had lost thousands of dollars in bowling bets and was pissed when the alleged victim decided to call it a night and go home with his winnings.

Our sources say … the man claims Broner waited for him outside of the alley and punched him in the face and neck — nearly knocking the man out cold.

The alleged victim told cops Broner went to his car and got a gun at one point — and when he came back, he forcibly took all the money in the man’s wallet … a ton of cash.

We’re told the alleged victim was hospitalized — and needed stitches to close a gash on his chin.

We reached out to Broner and his camp multiple times for comment — so far, no word back.

“I love training camp in D.C. because it takes me out of my element. I can get rid of the distractions and focus on boxing. The team we have down here brings the best out of me…I know it’s going to be an electrifying atmosphere with a huge crowd. I’m coming to put on a show. I know that Ashley Theophane is coming to win. He’s not coming to lay down, but we’re ready for anything he can bring.”

[On his loss to Shawn Porter] “Everybody has bad nights. The Porter fight was just one of my bad nights. But we’re back on track, we’re back to being a world champion and I will stay champion after April 1. It’s going to be a fantastic show.”
