Boxing Result

Aguilera destroys Maskaev

By David Robinett at ringside

Young Dominican heavyweight Nagy Aguilera may have ended the career of former WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev, (36-7, 27 KOs), scoring a first-round stoppage before Maskaev could even land a punch. Aguilera, (15-2, 10 KOs), dropped Maskaev early with a flurry of unanswered punches, then finished off a wobbly Maskaev with a big left hook that crumpled the Russian into the corner and forced referee Lou Moret to call it off at 1:54 of round one. The loss will certainly torpedo the WBC #2 Maskaev’s already planned world title eliminator against Ray Austin. (more…)

Pascal retains title

By Dave Spencer at ringside

In a local rematch of global proportions, Jean Pascal (26-1) retained his WBC light-heavyweight with a unanimous 118-110, 117-111, 117-111 decision over fellow Montrealer Adrian Diaconu (25-2) at the Bell Centre in Montreal before a crowd of 8,802 fans. This is the second defense for Pascal who utilized his speed and ring movement and bravely fought the last two rounds with one arm as he returned to his corner after the tenth round grimacing in pain with a separated shoulder. In fact his corner was forced to pop the shoulder back into place a total of three times on the night, the first time coming at the end of the third round. (more…)

Johnson: ‘I stole the show’

"The Kingpin Diaries"

Diary entry Friday, Dec. 11

“It’s one day before the fight and every thing is lining up exactly the way that I thought it would.  The Klitschko brothers are up to their old tricks.  Over the last few days, I’ve done a lot of media and at each event one of the Klitschko brothers has tried to get under my skin.

“At the open public workout on Thursday, I stole the show.  I had a mob of people asking me for autographs and pictures everywhere I went and I spent hours and hours greeting fans.  I think that made Vitali a little angry so when it was time for me to work out, he spent most of his time taunting me and trying to get me to take the bait.

DiBella drops Taylor

Statement: Promoter Lou DiBella on Jermain Taylor

“I have just been informed though numerous press reports that Jermain Taylor has elected to continue his participation in The Super Six: World Boxing Classic tournament, and will face Andre Ward in April. It is with a heavy heart, but strong conviction, that I will recuse myself and DiBella Entertainment as Jermain’s promoter.

“Jermain’s career has been outstanding, and it has been a pleasure and honor to promote him. His victories against Bernard Hopkins remain the highlights of my career as a promoter. Jermain is not only a great fighter, but a good and decent man with a wonderful family. It is out of genuine concern for him and his family that I am compelled to make this decision. (more…)

Haskins defeats Broadhurst

By Alexey Sukachev

British super flyweight champion Lee Haskins (20-2, 10 KOs) added the Commonwealth belt at the same weight class with a close foul-filled win over previously undefeated CW champion Don Broadhurst (11-1, 3 KOs) moments ago at Newport Leisure Centre in Newport, Wales. The fight was far from being a pretty, fan-friendly contest with both boxers using some dirty tactics. Adding more frustration around was an awkward Haskins’ stance and his Darchinyan-like style of boxing with only a light artillery to support it. Nevertheless, former amateur standout Broadhurst was never able to get on track and was beaten to the punch in later rounds by the national titlist. Scores were 117-113 and 116-113 (twice) – all in favor of Lee Haskins.
—–
Also, young heavyweight kayo artist David Price (4-0, 3 KOs) has finished off Latvian Dmitrijs Basovs (3-3) with a single right uppercut in the first round. Basovs countryman Andrejs Tolstihs (3-17-1, 3 KOs) was down three times before his one-sided drubbing, induced by Tony Jeffries (5-0, 4 KOs) was stopped at 2:17 of the initial round. In another notable fight, Martin Power (21-5, 9 KOs) stopped Matthew Edmonds (10-4, 2 KOs) in five rounds of action.

Striker vs. Grappler

UFC 107 is live on PPV Dec. 12!

Preview by Brady Crytzer

The co-main event of UFC 107 is a classic striker vs. grappler match up, but it may be the most competitive seen in a long time. Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir meets KO artist Cheick Kongo on Saturday, December 12th in Memphis to determine who’s title hopes will stay alive in the UFC’s vaunted heavyweight division. While Mir has proven to have the best submission skillset in the heavyweight division, Kongo has left a trail of bodies in his wake thanks to his world class kickboxing background. Normally the striker is written out of such bouts, but with over fifteen professional bouts apiece, both men have balanced out their games enough to make this the most intriguing “classic match up” of 2009 . . .

Adamek-Estrada is official

Mike Gladysz

Mike Gladysz

By Mike Moriarty

Heavyweight Jason “Big Six” Estrada (16-2, 4 KOs) believes it was a big mistake for IBF International heavyweight titlist Tomasz Adamek (39-1, 27 KOs) to choose him as his next opponent. “My defense is too good. I am too fast for him,” Estrada said at Thursday’s press conference to announce his February 6th showdown with Adamek. “At light heavy, he wasn’t that fast let alone at heavyweight putting on a couple more pounds. You’re born with speed. You can’t make yourself faster. He was never that fast. Adamek has ok speed but not against me.”

Adamek, who held world titles at both light heavyweight and cruiserweight, has won eight straight bouts and is coming off of a fifth round knockout victory in October over fellow Polish countryman and former heavyweight star Andrew Golota. He believes it will be the same result against Estrada. “Once I catch him, I will put him down,” said Adamek. “You know everyone can talk, but when you get in the ring you have to do your job. This is what I get paid to do.” (more…)
