Griffin Defeats McCreedy

Photo: Emily Harney

By Mark Vaz and Scott Ploof at ringside

There comes a time when a fighter has to take a chance in their career to move up to the next level of competition to see what they are truly made of. Sometimes this works out for the best, other times not so much. Unfortunately on this night at the Twin River Events Center in Lincoln, RI, “Irish” Joe McCreedy was not up to the task, and that task was “The Next Great Champ” reality show winner, Otis Griffin. Both fighters landed and traded equally hard shots, however the difference in this fight was that Griffin had solid defensive skills , while McCreedy’s were still in need of some fine tuning. Griffin put the pressure on in the fifth while the durable McCreedy was able to weather the storm. By round six it was apparent that the difference was too much as Griffin almost put the fight away with vicious combinations against his opponent. In the end, it was Griffin pulling out a unanimous decision victory by scores of 78-75, 77-76, and 78-74.

2008 US Olympic alternate and Framingham, MA native Danny O’Connor (10-0, 3 KOs) out landed and outworked James Hope (4-3, 4 KOs) over six one sided rounds. O’Connor worked the body throughout and by round three, Hope was hopelessly out of gas. All three judges scored the fight 60-54 in favor of O’Connor to keep his perfect record intact.

Four-time women’s world title holder Jamie “The Hurricane” Clampitt (20-4-1, 7 KOs) made her return to the ring a successful one as she won a convincing six round unanimous decision over North Carolina’s Rachel Clark (4-3-1, 3 KOs). All three judges scored the fight a shutout at 60-54 on the cards. Clampitt worked the body of Clark at will by punishing her midsection with vicious hooks all night long. This would setup her strong right hand that complimented her attack and gave no chance for Clark to get into the fight.

Providence, RI’s Vladine Biosse outworked and continued to land several combinations against his opponent Jeffrey Osbourne when referee Danny Chiavone called a very quick stop to the fight at 1:25 of the first round. Biosse nonetheless picked up the TKO win as he kept his record perfect at (5-0, 4 KOs) while the veteran Osbourne fell to (8-15-2, 3 KOs). (more…)

Khutsidze wins controversially

Nuzhnenko outpoints Yakovenko in co-feature

By Alexey Sukachev

WBA #4 middleweight Avtandil Khurtsidze (20-1-2, 13 KOs) was lucky to be awarded with a dubious eight-round TKO over Uzbek veteran Kuvanych Toygonbayev (30-6, 19 KOs) moments ago at Budivelnik sports arena in Cherkasy, Ukraine. Headlining a nice-packed little tournament, arranged there by K2 East Promotions, Kiev-based Georgian Khurtsidze, who spent the first part of his pro career overseas before being stopped by Tony Marshall in May 2005, retained both his WBA I/C (for the fourth time) and EBA (for the first time) titles simultaneously.

Munroe defeats Maludrottu

By Alexey Sukachev

In a two-way all-action brawl, Leicester native Rendall Munroe (now 20-1, 8 KOs) both retained his EBU super bantamweight title and won the final WBC 122lb title eliminator over Italian veteran and ex-world title challenger Simone Maludrottu (30-3, 11 KOs) moments ago at Harvey Hadden Leisure Center in Nottingham, UK. The contest was fought in close quarters with both combatants not giving a single inch to each other in toe-to-toe storm of light but rapidly fired punches. Maludrottu, WBC #12, took the first haf of the clash but Munroe, who was ranked WBC #2, WBA #4, IBF #11 and WBO #14, got stronger down the stretch. The Italian fighter tried to turn back the tide in the last round but it was too little from him and too late. All three judges saw it unanimously in Munroe’s favor: 116-112 (twice) and 115-113. Fightnews scored it 116-112 – also for the British fighter.

Australian welterweight Heath Ellis (11-1-1, 6 KOs) won every round against Thai import Jakkrit Suwunnalirt (15-12-1, 6 KOs) over twelve rounds to capture the interim WBC-ABC welterweight title at the Malvern Town Hall, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on Friday. Ellis controlled the bout in all of the contested rounds as he consistently connected with accurate head and body punches. A solid combination dropped Suwunnalirt in round three. Suwannalirt had boxed in Australia previously losing a twelve round points decision to current IBO 147 pound champion Lovemore Ndou in 2006. He lost inside the distance to Michael Katsidis and Emanuel Augustus in 2008. Ellis is the nephew of 1985 IBF 130 pound champion Lester Ellis. For more details and photos click here…

Provodnikov to face new foe

By Alexey Sukachev

Russian junior welterweight hope Ruslan Provodnikov (13-0, 8 KOs), who has just come back after a lengthy academic hiatus with an easy stoppage of Uzbek trialhorse Mahsud Jumaev in October, will most probably face Argentinean fringe contender Victor Hugo Castro (29-6, 12 KOs) in a bid for a vacant WBO Intercontinental 140lbs title, headlining a five-bout event, which is set for Nov. 28 in Samara, Russia. Provodnikov, 25, was earlier scheduled to collide with Columbian power hitter Breidis “Khanqueror” Prescott (21-1, 18 KOs) but that fight was scratched after Team Prescott had received a much more lucrative offer to clash against another undefeated Brit Kevin Mitchell in the WBO lightweight eliminator. Replacing Prescott was former world champion Freddie “Lil’ Hagler” Norwood (43-3-1, 23 KOs) but this fight was also called off later for yet undisclosed reasons. All four preliminary bouts remain intact, including a much anticipated ten-round showdown between 2009 International Kostya Tszyu Cup winner and 140lb national champion Fariz Kazimov (10-1-1, 3 KOs) and ex-WBO titleholder DeMarcus “Chop-Chop” Corley (36-11-1, 21 KOs).

Fightwriter: Kessler-Ward

By Graham Houston

Once the United States ruled boxing’s heavier weight divisions. Those days are just a fading memory. Showtime’s Super Six tournament in the 168-pound division has demonstrated the rise of European fighters. Undefeated Olympic bronze medallist Andre Dirrell lost a split decision to Carl Froch in the U.K., former middleweight champion Jermain Taylor, another Olympic bronze medallist, was knocked spark out in the closing seconds of his fight with Arthur Abraham in Germany and his career is in doubt. Will it be more of the same in the closing stage of the tournament’s opening-bracket bouts when Andre Ward, the Olympic gold medallist, challenges Denmark’s WBA champion Mikkel Kessler in Ward’s hometown of Oakland, CA, on Saturday? . . . click here for more

Medziah victorious

By Peter Lim

A Russian version of Mike Tyson was unveiled in the form of 22-year-old power punching cruiserweight Medziah, who goes by just one name, at the Stafford Center on the outskirts of Houston. Trained by 1984 Olympic gold medalist and former two-division world titleholder Frank Tate, Medziah made a successful pro debut by knocking out Louis Webster, (0-1), at 1:12 of the third round. Although Tate was one of the best exponents of the left jab in his hey-day, it is a weapon thus far absent from Medziah’s arsenal. Instead, Medziah’s preference is to hide behind a peekaboo defense and dip under incoming blows before unloading explosive punches with both fists, a mode of combat uncannily reminiscent of Tyson in his destructive prime.
