In a rematch, unbeaten WBC Silver welterweight belt holder Selcuk Aydin (23-0, 17 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Ionut “Jo-Jo Dan” Ion (29-2, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the Spor Salonu in Trabzon, Turkey. Dan fought more aggressively than the first fight, and Aydin was happy to mix it up. Just like in the first fight, Dan was down in round one. Aydin landed the heavier shots while Dan was busier for the rest of the bout. Aydin dropped Dan again in round eleven. Aydin was deducted a point in round twelve by referee Massimo Barrovecchio. In the end, the knockdowns made the difference as Aydin won 113-112, 113-112, 115-111. Aydin won their first fight by controversial split decision in June 2010.

Heavyweight Ondrej Pala (30-2, 21 KOs) took a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Darnell “The Ding-A-Ling Man” Wilson (24-13-3, 20 KOs). Pala was in command all the way en route to a 120-111, 118-110, 118-110 win.

Heavyweight prospect Erkan Teper (7-0, 5 KOs) successfully stepped up in class to stop late sub Cisse Salif (24-19-2, 21 KOs) in two rounds. Teper dropped Salif in round two and the bout was waved off after Teper’s follow-up barrage.

IBF #15 middleweight Benjamin Simon (22-1, 21 KOs) made short work of Ruslan Rodivich (8-5, 8 KOs) knocking him out in the first round.

Alvarez looks to add to legacy against “complete fighter” Cintron

By Anthony Springer Jr.

As the adage goes, it takes 20 years to build your reputation and five minutes to destroy it.

In the case of Saul Alvarez, that’d be six years and 38 professional victories. And while the champion has a bright future ahead, it all goes down the drain if he can’t get past veteran Kermit Cintron in a headlining bout tonight in Mexico City.

On the line, “Canelo’s” WBC junior middleweight strap and a higher profile fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. But first things first—and if “Canelo” can’t get by Cintron, the title along with the luster of a fight with Chavez evaporates.

While much of the boxing world has—perhaps rightly—written off Cintron after a couple losses and lackluster performances, the Alvarez camp insists they’re taking the challenger seriously. (more…)

Change of main event for Mexicali fight card

In a fortunate turn of events, the NABF twelve round mini flyweight championship bout between defending champion Pedro “Pedrin” Guevara (15-0-1, 11KOs) and Manuel “Menny” Jimenez (11-1-1, 7KOs) will headline the Box Latino “Noche de Luces en Calafia” fight card set for Saturday, December 10th, at the Plaza de Toros Calafia in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. Box Latino, which is helmed by the four time world champion in as many divisions Erik “Terrible” Morales and the city of Mexicali, will use the event to re-inaugurate the famed bullring Calafia after an extensive remodel. The main event will be broadcast live in Mexico by Televisa.

The bout will mark the first defense of the title that Guevara captured in his last fight when he stopped Jorle Estrada in seven rounds last October. Guevara has also held the WBC Silver light flyweight title which he captured against Colombian Karluis Diaz back in 2010 and defended it once versus the tough Mario “Dragoncito” Rodriguez earlier this year.

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former world super middleweight challenger Sakio “Scorpion” Bika (28-5-2, 19 KOs) is in solid training in Houston, Texas for a December 3rd showdown against Alfredo Contreras (11-12-2, 5 KOs) in Anaheim, California. “I have been training in Houston camp for three weeks now and getting great sparring from light heavyweight Cornelius White,” Bika said. “I am confident I will defeat Alfredo Contreras on December 3rd and will have an opportunity to fight the best super middleweights and light heavyweights.

Crolla outpoints Limond in twelve round snoozer

British lightweight titleholder Anthony Crolla (23-2, 9 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over local hero Willie Limond (34-4, 8 KOs) on Friday night at the Ravenscraig Sports Centre in Motherwell, Scotland. The two fighters are friends outside the ring and fought like it as Crolla easily outpointed Limond in a lackluster sparring session. Scores were 120-108, 120-108, 120-109. Crolla had been widely mentioned as a possible opponent of Erik Morales earlier in the year, but that bout never came together.

Jr middleweight Matthew Hall (24-4, 16 KOs) won an unexpected ten round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Kris Carslaw (14-1, 3 KOs) in an eliminator for the British 154lb belt. Hall, who entered a loser of three of his last four, won by scores of 96-94 96-94, 97-95.

Shumenov-Cleverly unification?

WBA light heavyweight World champion Beibut Shumenov (12-1, 8 KOs) is encouraged by media reports and quotes from WBO titlist Nathan Cleverly (23-0, 11 KOs) claiming he is agreeable to a unification fight in Las Vegas versus Shumenov. One potential obstacle for any unification bout has been averted because Shumenov is once again promoted by KZ Event Productions, which he owns and operates with his brother, Chingis.

“Both of us are world champions; Cleverly in the WBO and me in the WBA,” Shumenov said. “I tried to unify against a WBO champion before but it didn’t work out. This fight should happen for boxing fans all over the world and we, as fighters, need to make sure that it does happen. I am sure Cleverly would prefer to fight at home in the UK, as I would love to fight in Kazakhstan, but this fight belongs in the boxing capital of the world, Las Vegas. I’m ready and, if Cleverly is really willing and able, let’s make it happen and get a deal done. My goal has always been to unify the light heavyweight world title.” (more…)
