Story and photo by Ahmed Santos

Undefeated Los Mochis, México prospect Mahonri “Russito” Montes passed his toughest test to date, beating tough and experienced Héctor Velázquez by unanimous decision, in the fight card that took place at the Banorte stadium of Culiacán, Sinaloa, México. “Russito” (22-0-1, 17 KOs) surprised everybody by fighting Velázquez (51-16-2, 35 KOs) toe to toe at short range, not using his advantages in height and reach, and in hard fought affair he landed the better shots, winning most rounds, closing the show with luster boxing at long distance the last couple of chapters of the 10 round fight at lightweight.

Lange beats McFail

By Neil Dennis

On paper, a rematch between Jimmy Lange and Mike McFail didn’t seem to make sense. Lange already beat McFail, shutting him out on all three scorecards in his own turf of North Carolina. The only logical explanation seemed to be Lange wanting to pad his record following last year’s upset loss to Chase Shields. However, once the fight began, no one in the attendance doubted the logic of this nice bit of matchmaking. For more details and photos click here…

Molina-Frankel full report

By Francisco Salazar

Lightweight John Molina stated that he was not looking past Robert Frankel in their 10 round bout on Friday night. If Molina just happened to be looking past him, Frankel sure got his attention early on in the fight. Frankel came to fight, even outboxing Molina at times, before numerous cuts on Frankel’s face forced a referee’s stoppage after the fifth round at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, CA. The bout headlined a six-bout card, presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions, in association with Thompson Boxing. Molina was coming off a third round knockout victory over Alejandro Rodriguez less than four weeks ago. He took the bout as a tune-up in preparation for the Frankel fight, since he had not fought since his come-from-behind knockout victory over Hank Lundy in July.

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

IBF Middleweight champion Daniel Geale (25-1, 15 KOs) will be back in action on August 31 in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia to make the first defense of the IBF championship against Nigerian-born, Miami-based Eromosele “Bad Boy” Albert (24-4-1, 12 KOs).

In 2007 Albert scored the best win of his career when he stopped world rated 160 pounder Daniel Edouard (18-1-2) in Miami.

Mamajanov wins in Houston

Photos and report by Peter Lim

Lightweight Bahodir Mamajanov, 2-0 (2 KOs), of Uzbekistan, did a pretty decent impersonation of Manny Pacquiao as he brutally stopped Jesus Mendez, 3-2-1 (2 KOs), in the second round at the Houston Athletic Fencing Center. But it was more the raw, free-swinging Pacman of five years ago that Mamajanov resembled rather than more polished and rounded version of today. For more details and photos click here…

Alexander-Matthysse Ring Quotes

Devon Alexander: “Matthysse is a rough and tough fighter. I brought the fight out in me because people had their doubts about my abilities as a boxer. The knockdown [first of his career] was a flash knockdown [in the fourth round]. I had to pull it out. I was having flashbacks from my last fight with Bradley, and I wasn’t going to lose two fights in a row. As a matter of fact, I’m never going to lose again.”

Kevin Cunningham: (trainer and manager of Devon Alexander) “I didn’t enjoy watching a rugged, tough guy like Matthysse in there with my fighter. I knew it was gonna be tough. I didn’t want to see my fighter trading with a puncher like Matthysse, but because of all the criticism he took after the Bradley fight, he felt he had something to prove in his hometown. I think when Devon reviews the tape of the fight, he’ll see that he was at his most effective when he was using his boxing skills to the fullest.”

Lucas Matthysse: “I gave it my all. It was a tough fight but I thought I won. Once again, I was robbed. He’s lucky he won the fight. I thought when I put him down, I’d finish him off but I couldn’t.” (more…)

Nick Charles Remembered

By Steve Farhood

Note: HBO Boxing After Dark and Top Rank Live on Fox Sports Net will pay tribute to Nick at the conclusion of their respective broadcasts tonight.

My best friend died today, and I’m surprised at what saddens me more than anything else: that more people didn’t have the opportunity to know Nick Charles.

Diagnosed with stage four bladder cancer two years ago, Nick passed away Friday night at his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His wife Cory and five-year-old daughter Giovanna were at his side. He is also survived by his children from previous marriages, son Jason and daughters Melissa and Katie.

Nick was five days shy of his 65th birthday.

I suppose that one man’s life is no more significant than another’s, but to deny that Nick was special would be foolish. Nick often said that you judge a man by how he treats someone who can do nothing for him. He was generous of spirit and overflowing with life, and if you spent five minutes with him, chances are it was an impressionable, if not meaningful, encounter. (more…)

Sturm retains WBA title

By Wolfgang Schiffbauer at ringside

WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm made a successful tenth title defense tonight in front of over 18,000 fans at the sold-out Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany, against Irishman Matthew Macklin in a true thriller.

The challenger got off to a great start, pushing Sturm back with an enormous offensive workrate in the first three rounds. The champion, however, picked up the pace in the fourth and slowly gained control of the action with his quick and accurate combinations. Macklin never backed up, though, thus making it a toe-to-toe battle with him being the agressor while Sturm landed the cleaner punches. Both fighters had their fair share moments, hence making it a close fight going into the championship rounds.

The last two rounds added to the drama traded heavy shots and bringing the crowd to their feet. The fight ended with Sturm landing a brutal assault after taking good shots himself. The final bell concluded the great action, leaving the decision in the judges’ hands. They scored the bout 115:113 Macklin, 116:112 and 116:112 for Sturm, who emerged the split decision winner in one of the year’s best fights in Germany. (more…)
