Vazquez Jr. poised to defend

Photo: Joel A. Colón/All Star Boxing

By Graham Houston

Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. tops the bill on PPV for the third time this year when he defends his junior featherweight title against Mexican veteran Ivan Hernandez in Florida tonight. Vazquez looked poised and powerful when crushing Marvin Sonsona in four rounds in February and overpowering Zsolt Bedak in the ninth round in May. He was meeting unbeaten boxers in those fights but on Saturday he faces a veteran ex-champion who has been boxing professionally for a decade.

Despite Hernandez’s experience, Vazquez is an overwhelming favourite. The son of Puerto Rican great Wilfredo Vazquez, “WV2”, as he is known, seems to be that rarity, a naturally gifted fighter who from the start of his career had the look of a future star. (more…)

Klitschko-Briggs collide tonight

Sumio Yamada/WBC

By Graham Houston

Shannon Briggs can certainly talk a great fight, and he has been his usual loquacious self heading into Saturday’s heavyweight title challenge against Vitali Klitschko. Briggs has even predicted a 30-second KO win, while also announcing that his victory will be dedicated “to the sufferers of asthma worldwide”. It seems that Shannon, who has suffered from asthma since childhood, was greatly offended by a Klitschko comment that Briggs has used his asthma as an excuse for past failures.

All this is good fun, of course, leading up to the fight in Hamburg that will be shown on the Internet on espn.3 for U.S. residents. Tonight, though, the contrived trash talking stops and things will get serious. (more…)

Fightnews scored the fight 97-93 in favor of Perez. Perez used his superior speed, various angles and ring generalship to control the bout, sweeping the first half of the fight and then cruising to victory in the second half of the fight. Salcido simply took too long to get started and despite looking good in the last couple rounds was too far behind and lacked the power to put away Perez.

Former world rated featherweight Fahsai Sakkreerin (29-0) chopped down Indonesian junior lightweight champion Eddy Comaro (23-9-4) in eight rounds in a nationally televised IBF Pan Pacific title bout at the Chaopraya Park Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand on Friday. Comaro connected often with right hands on Sakkreerin early in the fight but the Thai was never in trouble at any stage of the contest. Sakkreerin delivered accurate left jabs, rips and hooks consistently that began to take its toll on the tough Indonesian by round six. In round seven Comaro was looking distressed by the consistent bombardment of leather and at the conclusion of round eight the corner of Comaro wisely retired their boxer.
