World Boxing Organization (WBO) lightweight champion Ricky Burns (36-2, 11 KOs) retained his title with a gutsy ninth round TKO over previously unbeaten #1 rated Jose “Chelo” Gonzalez (22-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland. Gonzalez, from Puerto Rico, dictated the pace of the fight as he dominated Burns for the first six rounds. After being badly outboxed, the desperate champion came out in round seven and traded shots with Gonzalez in some fierce action that seemed to take all the fight out of the challenger. Burns continued to come on in rounds eight and nine and the badly faded Gonzalez quit on his stool citing an injured wrist between rounds nine and ten. At the time of the stoppage Gonzalez had a three point lead on all three cards. (more…)

Manny Pacquiao has reportedly requested random drug testing for his November 23 fight against Brandon Rios. This is the first time this procedure will be used in a Pacquiao fight, possibly due to the presence of Rios’ strength and conditioning coach Angel Heredia, who also worked with Juan Manuel Marquez and has been involved with performance enhancing drugs in the past. Word is VADA will be doing the testing.

Two of the better co-main events in recent years provided Detroiters with slam-bang action as Motowners Vernon Paris and Cornelius Lock fought off “challengers” Manuel Perez and Lonnie Smith in a ballroom-packed, roaring crowd that sent no one home feeling cheated.
The Mellennium Events/Greg Ahrens co-promotion (matchmakers Carlos Llinas and Jack Crider) was televised by ESPN, and the monies thereof largely responsible for the quality of the two main (televised bouts).
Locals Paris, now a welterweight, and Lock, now a lightweight, held off the determined advances of what in the trade is known as “great” opponents. Manuel Perez and Lonnie Smith (not the former champion) were the determined aggressors as they busted forward against Paris and Lock respectively, always chugging, always firing off, both rarely taking a back step. Had longtime booking agent Johnny Bos been there to comment, he would have said (he’s not dead, folks, just mostly inactive) of either Perez or Smith something akin to “He comes to fight. He comes to win. But he don’t beat your guy.” (more…)

WBC #15 jr middleweight Michael Oliveira (21-1, 16 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Colombian former world title challenger Francisco Cordero (28-2, 20 KOs) on Friday night at the Teo Cruz Coliseum in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Cordero stated there was a problem with one of his hands and remained on his stool at the beginning of the third tound. Oliveira retained his WBC Latino and WBA Fedelatin and belts. It was the 23-year-old Oliveira’s fourth straight win since his defeat in June 2012 against former world champion Popo Freitas. Cordero was a former world junior lightweight contender.
Also, undefeated super flyweight sensation Jose “Chiquiro” Martinez showed great skills and great power to stop at 2:15 of round four the Dominican warrior Geyci Lorenzo (12-8, 3 KOs) who was former 3 time national champion for the Dominican Republic national team. (more…)

Unbeaten Japanese star Kazuto Ioka (12-0, 8 KOs), 108, impressively decked the first defense of his second world throne when he dispatched Thai veteran Wisanu Kokietgym (43-9-2, 11 KOs), 108, with a wicked body shot at 2:51 of the ninth round on Wednesday in Osaka, Japan. Ioka, still 24, had acquired the WBC 105-pound belt in his seventh pro bout, and won the WBA 108-pound diadem in his eleventh. Ioka was patient against the more experienced Thailander, steadily piling up points before he exploded a very well-timed right uppercut to the midsection, which sent him flat on the canvas for minutes.

European featherweight champion Alex Miskirtchian, 22-2-1(8) will have an 8 round non title tonight against modest Hungarian Andras Varga, 8-5-2(1). Belgian Miskirtchian is set to defend his EBU title on June 21 in the same hall against Italian Davide Dieli, 12-3-0(4).
Current WBC Youth Inc heavyweight champion Hervé Hubeaux, 12-1-0(7) and national cruiserweight champion Christophe Dufaux, 12-7-0(5) will fight over 6 round on the undercard of this 6-fight card.
The show is promoted by Euroboxe Promotion headed by Alain Vanackère.

Undefeated IBF #3 jr welterweight Dierry “Dougy Style” Jean (25-0, 17 KOs) scored an explosive fourth round TKO over IBF #7 Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis (17-4-1, 6 KOs) on Friday night at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. After suffering a bad cut over his right eye in round three from an unintentional headbutt, Jean dropped Pendarvis with a huge right hand in round four and got the stoppage with his follow up barrage. Time was 2:01. The bout was an elimination bout for the #1 spot in the IBF’s 140-pound division.
“The cut was bad,” said the 31-year-old Jean, who was born in Haiti but has lived in Canada since he was 10. “I couldn’t see anything. But my corner did a great job with it, and then I caught him with a perfect right hand. I was very surprised the referee let it go so long after the first knockdown but I knew I had to keep fighting and finish the job. (more…)
Jr welterweight Vernon “The Iceman” Paris (28-1, 16 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Manny “Manos” Perez (19-9-1, 4 KOs) on Friday night at the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan. Perez seemingly outworked Paris, but the hometown favorite prevailed by scores of 97-93, 96-94, 98-92
Featherweight Cornelius “Lighting” Lock (21-6-1, 13 KOs) overcame two knockdowns to win a unanimous decision against “El Negro Mexicano Lightning” Lonnie Smith (14-5-3, 10 KOs). Lock controlled the fight but Smith was credited with knockdowns in round four and five, although both should have been ruled as slips. Smith was deducted a point in round ten for spitting out his mouthpiece. Scores were 97-91, 96-92, 95-92.

Fightnews.com has learned that the WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title bout between champion Tony Jeter and Victor Hugo Correa slated for Saturday, May 11 at Club One Fitness in Millersville, MD has been called off. However, the rest of the Jeter Promotions card — including another WBC Fecarbox title bout — will still take place. Jeter Promotions learned late Thursday that something was wrong when Correa didn’t arrive to be picked up at a local airport. Subsequently, Correa sent an email saying he was not coming from Mexico City due to an illness. This was after all the necessary documentation — including medical forms — had already been received. After some last-minute tries to find a replacement, the bout had to be called off.
Where some promoters may have cancelled the card outright, Jeter Promotions told Fightnews that it would not be right to the other boxers on the card to cancel, so the card will go on as scheduled with the bout between Phil Jackson Benson and Maxell Taylor for the vacant WBC Fecarbox Super Middleweight title as the new main event.
Here is the scale watch:
Phil Jackson Benson 165 vs. Maxell Taylor 167
(WBC Fecarbox Supervisor Bismarck Morales holds the title belt)
Dwayne McRae 231.5 vs. Dennis Benson 252
Nick Kisner 217.5 vs. Willie Chisolm 218.5

In a Foxtel nationally televised promotion, WBO #8 Alex “Lion Heart” Leapai (28-4-3, 23 KOs) stopped late replacement Joe Lloyd (2-5, 2 KOs) in round one at the Royal International Convention Center Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on Thursday when scheduled opponent John Napri (18-0, 12 KOs) of Ghana failed the medical so could not fight. Lloyd who is a cruiserweight was in over his head and referee Steve Marshall called it off at 1.18
WBA #4 middleweight Jarrod “Left Jab” Fletcher (16-1, 10 KOs) stopped Philip Kotey (28-6-2, 21 KOs) in round six of a scheduled ten. Referee Phil Austin crowned Fletcher at 2:28. Kotey was given a count in round three when he was in trouble on the ropes. Kotey complained about the stoppage. (more…)

Showtime boxing chief Stephen Espinoza today called Mayweather-Guerrero “a major win,” and stated that the fight will exceed one million buys, although he stopped short of giving a number. Reports earlier this week proclaimed that the numbers “look bad” and are “well under 1m.” In addition, it was revealed today that the MGM Grand did $9.9 million at the gate. Also both Mayweather and Guerrero passed their NSAC drug tests.
Promoter Jimmy Burchfield has announced that Peter Manfredo Jr. will be returning to the ring on September 13th at Twin River Casino.
Heavyweight Brian Minto tweeted that he has signed to fight in Poland against Artur “spitka,” probably meaning Szpilka.
The IBF says it can’t change the decision by the German Boxing Federation to change the result of the February Sam Soliman-Felix Sturm fight to a no contest after Soliman tested positive for a banned substance. The Soliman camp says the B sample was negative and is appealing. The IBF has not yet ruled if Soliman is still mandatory challenger to middleweight champion Daniel Geale.

Mexican puncher Julio “Pollito” Ceja knows he will not get much fan support when he rumbles with local hero Jamie McDonnell in Doncaster tomorrow night, yet the soft-spoken 20-year-old appeared in no way intimidated by the task at hand at this week’s press conference.
Smiling, even grinning on occasion as he sat at the podium and later answered questions from the media, Ceja, 24-0(22) seemed to be enjoying the whole experience. Respectful of McDonnell, 20-2-1(9), there were no boastful pre-fight knockout predictions from the visiting fighter – only the self belief that victory will be his after what could be a tough fight.
Fightnews.com managed to speak with Julio during the “Making History” presser: (more…)
WBC President Jose Sulaiman: The IOC president, Mr. Jacques Rogge, has not answered my very respectful request to know if the IOC supports AIBA’s attempts to impose monopoly, restraint of trade, and violation of the sovereignty of the nations by the exclusive rules being imposed on the sport of boxing by AIBA. The response allegedly sent by the IOC on the 12th of April is false, and no letter of response has actually been received by the WBC.
The president of AIBA, Mr. Ching-Kuo Wu, sent to all its affiliated national federations a letter where he claims that IOC president Mr. Rogge recognizes only AIBA and its absolute control over Olympic boxing, which would be a monopoly by having only professional boxers under contract with AIBA compete at the Olympic Games.
Monopoly is a violation of the antitrust laws in most countries of the world. This restraint of trade would take away the same right and opportunities from boxers with the same qualifications as AIBA’s boxers. (more…)
World Boxing Association cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (25-1, 19 KOs), from Chekhov, Russia, and WBA cruiserweight champion in recess Guillermo “El Felino” Jones (38-3-2, 30 KOs), from Colon, Panama, are set to meet on May 17 at Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. Co-promoter Don King has invited Russian President Vladimir Putin and Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli to attend the event. “I have invited the leaders of Russia and Panama to attend our big boxing event in Moscow on May 17 as the world champions in the main event hail from these great countries,” King said. “Sports can transcend boundaries and bring us together, so what better way to exemplify that than to have these great leaders on the scene supporting their countrymen.”
The event will take place in the beautiful 7,000-seat Crocus City Hall and has been dubbed ‘Fight For Peace, The One Will Stand.’
“It’s to Russia with love and understanding, a sports extravaganza to bring people together for peace, democracy and freedom. President Putin said, ‘Nobody and nothing will stop Russia on the road to strengthening democracy and ensuring human rights and freedoms,’ and I support him in his quest to make a better Russia for the Russian people.”

On Saturday, undefeated American heavyweight prospect Ritchie “Silverback” Carmack (12-0, 10 KOs) of Dalton, Mo., makes his second consecutive step-up in class when he takes on New York fan favorite Vinnie Maddalone (36-8, 27 KOs) in a ten round bout at The Paramount in Huntington, N.Y.
The quiet Missouri native, who is as admired in his hometown of Belton for his work with individuals with disabilities as he is for his boxing abilities and strenuous training regiments, which include pulling vans like a World’s Strongest Man does, believes he is the most unique heavyweight and that he is on the cusp of competing against the division’s best.

After yesterday’s press conference where Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren announced a heavyweight clash between Deontay Wilder and Dereck Chisora on June 15 in London, Wilder’s promoter Golden Boy denied that the fight has been agreed to.

WBC #15 junior middleweight Michael “The Brazilian Rocky” Oliveira (20-1, 15 KOs) is defending his WBC Fecarbox title tonight against Francisco Cordero (28-1, 20 KOs) of Colombia at the Teo Cruz Coliseum in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The weigh-in had some heated moments as both young men pushed each other around and had to be separated. Oliveira gracefully answered questions by Fightnews after the tense face-off with Cordero.
Michael, Cordero looked to be very confident at the weigh-in. He’s not very well-known but he has this impressive record. What do you have to say about that?
Am I supposed to be scared or impressed? Well, I’m not. (more…)

Lamont Peterson: “I’m not worried about Matthysse. I’ve known him for a while. He’s a strong guy. He’s going to bring it all night. Pretty much the way I like it to be and it’s going to be a great fight. Everyone keeps asking me about his [Matthysse] punching power. I know what I signed up for. I realize I’m going to get hit in the face, but I will be hitting him back. I’m not worried about taking a few punches. I’m prepared to go 12 rounds. (more…)
