Nelson preps for Cro Cop

UFC 137 is LIVE on PPV Oct. 29!

It took just over seven years of being a professional in the sport, a case of walking pneumonia and a former UFC heavyweight champion, but Roy Nelson’s cardio looked bad in a fight. For all the haters and harpies of his trademark tummy, UFC 130 was really a unique experience seeing “Big Country” gassed in the second and third round while being outwrestled by Frank Mir. The Ultimate Fighter season 10 winner knows best how uncharacteristic his performance was, he’s owned up to it and he is ready to move on from it . . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com

Canelo opens training camp

Report and photo by Pepe Rodriguez/WBC

On Monday, WBC super welterweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez began boxing training for what will be the third defense of the title he won last March 5 in Anaheim, California against Matthew “Magic” Hatton. Alvarez (38-0-1, 28 KOs), will be risking his belt on November 26 in Mexico against former world champion Kermit The “Killer” Cintron (33-4-1, 28 KOs), who among other things, once defeated Alfredo El “Perro” Angulo. This time, the undefeated champion will not train in the Big Bear Mountains of Southern California as he did for his last two fights, but instead will make his preparations in Guadalajara, Mexico, and two weeks before the fight, he’ll close his training camp in Mexico City. Today, Alvarez will be traveling to Mexico City to be present at the press conference where the place of the bout will be announced.

Margarito, Rios training in Mexico

By Francisco Salazar

With all the traveling that Robert Garcia has done in the last couple of weeks, you would think he is accumulating frequent flyer miles. Instead, he has been traveling across the country and abroad to prepare his fighters for title defenses or to win world title belts. Garcia confirmed to Fightnews.com on Friday night that he will be training super welterweight contender Antonio Margarito in Mexico City and not in Oxnard, CA. He also confirmed that lightweight world title holder Brandon Rios will join him in one of the largest metropolitan cities in the world. (more…)

In the second fight of his career under the guidance of new trainer Ronnie Shields, super middleweight prospect Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (20-0, 14 KOs) of Worcester, MA was forced to go the distance against the incredibly tough former amateur standout Will Rosinsky (14-1, 8 KOs) of Queens, NY in the ten-round main event of the DiBella Entertainment “Octoberfist” card that was televised on Friday’s SHOWTIME ShoBox series from the Foxwoods Resort Casino at Mashantucket, Connecticut.

Yaegashi stops Pornsawan

Seizes WBA minimumweight title

By Joe Koizumi
Photo: Boxing Beat

Fast-punching Japanese left hooker Akira Yaegashi (15-2, 8 KOs), 105, impressively captured the WBA minimum belt as he gamely exchanged punches, overwhelmed defending champ Pornsawan Porpramook (23-4-1, 16 KOs), 105, Thailand, with crisp counters and finally caught the fading titlist with a fusillade of punches to prompt the referee’s halt at 2:38 of the tenth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

The official tallies after the ninth were as follows: Pier Luigi Poppi (Italy) and Silvestre Abainza (Philippines) both 88-83, and Ruben Garcia (US) 87-84, all in favor of Yaegashi. The referee was Erkki Meronen (Finland) who made a brilliant stoppage of the defending titlist, the timing of which looked so perfect that there’s no complaint even from the ex-champ’s corner.

Esquivel-Yamanaka for WBC title?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Reliable sources indicate the possibility that a fight between the Mexican Cristian Esquivel (24-2, 18 KOs) and Japan’s Shinsuke Yamanaka Japanese (14-0, 10 KOs) already announced as a WBC bantamweight title eliminator could be elevated to a bout for the WBC world title. This is if current WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire vacates the belts and moves up to super bantamweight as expressed Saturday after his win over Omar Narvaez. Esquivel and Yamanaka are lined up to meet November 6 at Yoyogi Gymnasium #2 in Tokyo, Japan.

Donaire moving up to 122

By Mike Bernier

Shortly after Nonito ‘The Filipino Flash’ won a unanimous lopsided decision over Omar ‘El Hucacan’ Narvaez, Top Rank held a short press conference at ringside. Both Donaire, draped in his WBO and WBC bantamweight belts, and Narvaez surrounded by his team spoke with the media. “He knew exactly how powerful I am,” said Donaire. “One punch would have taken him out.” Narvaez was happy to fight defensively and only averaged about 25 punches per round (bantamweight average is 60). Robert Garcia, Donaire’s trainer, instructed his fighter in the corner between rounds to hit the body and land his left hook, but Narvaez fought a defensive fight. Garcia said, “He [Narvaez] didn’t want to win rounds, he didn’t even try. He’s a two time world champion and we expected more.” (more…)

Siyo retains SA title in :40

By Ron Jackson

In a complete mismatch Luzuko Siyo smashed Sebelomzi Zimela to defeat in 40 seconds of the first round to retain his South African junior flyweight title at the Orient Theatre in East London on Sunday afternoon. The number ten ranked Zimela (48.70kg) was never in the fight as Siyo (48.70kg) attacked from the bell throwing big shots to the body and within seconds the challenger went down on one knee. He managed to make it to his feet as referee Andile Matakane gave him a standing eight count. Zimela was still on rubbery legs as the champion backed him up before landing a sweeping left hook to the jaw that sent him flat on his back on the canvas. The referee did not pick up the count and waved the fight off immediately. (more…)

Hawk returns with victory

By Sam DiTusa

The new and improved Shawn Hawk (22-1-1, 17 KOs) returned to the ring Thursday evening at the Coeur d’Alene Casino in Worley, Idaho sporting a new physique and dedication taking taking a ten round split decision over Otis “Triple OG” Griffin (23-9-2, 9 KOs) in the main event. Hawk who formerly fought at the Cruiserweight limit of 200 lbs tipped the scale at 173 looking fit and trim. The fight with Griffin was filled with big voids in action, however, and Hawk’s split decision victory was greeted with displeasure from the sellout crowd. Hawk displayed his piston like jab throughout, but chose to fight strategically rather then with the brawling, two-fisted style which has made him a Northwest favorite. (more…)
