Frampton-Quigg February unification set

Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will meet for the IBF and WBA world super-bantamweight titles at the Manchester Arena on February 27, 2016. The eagerly anticipated showdown between the British rivals was announced live on Sky Sports News this afternoon with the pair putting titles, unbeaten records and bragging rights on the line in the blockbuster. Frampton took the IBF crown from Kiko Martinez last September and has defended the title twice this year, stopping Chris Avalos in Belfast in February before an exciting debut on US soil in May where he climbed off the canvas twice in the opening round to defeat Alejandro Gonzalez Jr.

Quigg’s reign as WBA champion began in October 2013 and the 27-year-old has racked up five successful defenses in that time, stopping Martinez in his last outing in Manchester in July to follow wins over Diego Silva, Tshifhiwa Munyai, Stephane Jamoye and Hidenori Otake. (more…)

WBA#3 Hosono, Ex-Champ Shimoda to collide in December

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

Should you get tired of long Christmas holidays, you may come to Japan to watch multiple title bouts in the end of the year. WBA#3/WBO#6 featherweight Satoshi “Bazooka” Hosono (29-2-1, 20 KOs) will risk his Japanese 126-pound belt against former WBA ruler Akifumi Shimoda (30-4-2, 13 KOs) beneath world title twinbill of Naoya Inoue and Akira Yaegashi in Tokyo, Japan, on December 29. This is a good matchup to be welcomed by our hardcore aficionados. Having failed to win the WBA belt three times, Hosono is still gunning to acquire a world throne in his fourth crack at the championship. The southpaw speedster Shimoda, who moved up to the feather category two years ago, made a comeback after his upset KO defeat by Filipino Melvin Sonsona in Macao in February of the previous year, and decked a couple of fine victories to show his improvement. Also, on the same show, Naoya’s younger brother, WBC#7 Takuma Inoue (5-0, 1 KO), 19, will make his initial defense of the OPBF super-fly belt against Filipino Rene Ducquel (15-5-1, 5 KOs) over twelve rounds. We may see hot winter.

Skoglund faces Edwards on December 19

Following a hugely successful debut show, the Nordic Fight Night returns to the Rosvalla Arena in Nyköping, Sweden on December 19, where local hero Erik Skoglund (23-0, 11 KOs) will put his undefeated record on the line against Derek Edwards (27-5-1, 14 KOs) – the only man to have beaten current Swedish World Champion Badou Jack.

Skoglund made history on September 19 when defending his IBF Intercontinental title over twelve rounds against the durable Ukrainian Oleksandr Cherviak, three months later, the ‘Swedish Sensation’ faces his toughest opponent to date when he takes on the hard-hitting Edwards.

Having proved his pedigree with a devastating first-round knockout victory over Badou Jack in February 2014, Edwards intends to claim his second Swedish scalp when he travels across the Atlantic to face Skoglund in his hometown arena, and the American is confident of delivering another knockout performance.

Santos, Ormond win in Melrose, Mass

By Matt Thompson; photos by Emily Harney

Heavyweight Alexis Santos improved to 15-1 with 11 knockouts in front of a packed house Friday at the at the Memorial Hall in Melrose, MA with a fifth round stoppage of veteran Aaron Kinch (5-5-1, 1 KO). Santos started strong, staggering Kinch in the first round prompting referee Mike Ryan to administer a standing eight count as he ruled the ropes were all that kept Kinch from hitting the deck. Santos continued to apply pressure throughout the bout, working the body effectively and pounding the defense-minded Kinch around the ring. In the fifth round, Santos continued his assault until referee Ryan stepped in to stop the action.

Top-rated Irish jr welterweight Stephen “The Rock” Ormond (20-2, 12 Kos) looked impressive dishing out a one-sided pummeling of game but overwhelmed Orlando Vazquez (18-7-1, 12 KOs). Ormond, fighting out of Dublin, Ireland, in his second fight in three weeks, kept constant pressure on Vazquez jabbing his taller opponent effectively to set up lightning combinations to the head and body. A well-placed left hook to the liver dropped Vazquez late in round four, and although he beat the count, Ormond immediately pounced, pounding away as Vazquez tried to cover, prompting referee Mike Marvelli to call a halt to the action at 2:20 of the round. Ormond has recently signed with Murphys Boxing and is thrilled with the new partnership. (more…)

Thompson: He was just too fast

“He was just too fast,” said heavyweight Tony Thompson (40-6, 27 KOs) after dropping a ten round unanimous decision to nine-years-younger Malik Scott (38-2-1, 13 KOs) on Friday night in Orlando, Florida. “If I were younger I would have caught him. A prime Tony would have kicked his ass, but I’m 44 and the years are starting to pile up.

“Malik did a great job of staying away until I was able to catch him with one good shot. He just pitty-patted his way to victory.

“I would rate my performance a D at best. I was the aggressor but I didn’t cut him off good enough until late in the fight. My coach kept telling me to go to the right but for whatever reason I only started going to the right late in the fight. That was when I caught him.

“It was an outstanding performance by Malik. He did what he’s supposed to do to an older fighter.”

It was the Washington DC-based Thompson’s first appearance in the United States since 2011.

Malik Scott (38-2-1, 13 KOs) remained in the heavyweight discussion with a ten round unanimous decision over WBC #9 Tony Thompson in a crossroads fight on Friday night in Orlando, Florida.

“My skill set was good, but this is one of those tapes I will hate to look at when I get home. Tony got away with a lot. I was making him miss and not making him pay. But let’s not forget I haven’t fought for a whole year. I have to get more active, so after this fight, we’ll see what’s next. I’m never satisfied with my performances, but that’s what keeps me going.”

There was a scary moment for Scott when Thompson floored his in round nine. “I was hurt in the ninth, definitely. But I’m in great shape and I wasn’t worried about it. I got through it and let him know he’d have to do it again to win this fight.

“Tony’s legs are very slow, so I was just losing him with the feet all night long.”

It was Scott’s first fight since his win over comebacking world title challenger Alex Leapai. Like Malik said, he needs to get more active.

Rigondeaux aiming for December 4 return

By Dave Spencer

WBA super bantamweight “super” champion Guillermo Rigondeaux was stripped of the WBO title earlier this week and lost the WBA belt today (although he remains champion in recess). The reason for both moves was inactivity. However, Rigo does apparently have a fight lined up against TBA on December 4th in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and tickets are on sale. James “Lights Out” Toney is also scheduled to appear. The last time they had boxing in Ottawa was 1998 with Otis Grant defending his WBO title.

WBA makes Rigondeaux “champion in recess,” OKs Quigg-Frampton unification

The WBA Championships Committee has redesignated WBA super bantamweight “super” champion Guillermo Rigondeaux as “Champion in Recess.” The move was made in light of Rigondcaux’s impressive record and accomplishments, the delays associated with his various managerial/promoter disputes, and the loss of his unification status (he was stripped by the WBO for inactivity earlier this week). Rigondeaux must come out of recess and face the reigning champion on or before May 1, 2016.

The WBA has also authorized a special permit for champion 122lb “regular” champ Scott Quigg to participate in a unification bout with IBF champion Carl Frampton, subject to compliance with all other WBA rules and payment of all applicable fees.
