After Rodrigo Juarez suffered an inner ear injury last week during sparring, Hugo Hernandez (11-1-1, 10KOs) of Culiacan, MX, has bee called up to face Tijuana’s newly crowned WBC FECARBOX jr. lightweight champion Antonio “Cañitas” Lozada Jr. (22-0, 19KOs) on July 24th in Tijuana, MX, in the main event of “Full Impact”, televised by Televisa in all of Mexico.

After Juarez’s injury, the call was made to the current Nicaragua national and Fedcaribe champion Rosemberg Gomez. Gomez was rejected after not being able to secure a visa. The venue has also changed, going from the legendary El Foro Threatre to now the Caliente Racetrack where the eleven bout fight card will be part of the Tecate Box Tour, a “NFL Experience” type of extravaganza.

On a knockout card, the School of Hard Knocks, under Isidro Castillo, and star pupil, Edgar Zubia, all from Hobbs, debuted at the Club La Sierra in their hometown. In six well-matched bouts, just one ending early, the crowd got increasingly boisterous until it nearly boiled over during the main event, when the 600 or so in attendance started to sound like 2,000. An easy win for their hometown favorite, Edgar “Z” Zubia, however, wasn’t in the books as the Hobbs hometowner from the School of Hard Knocks was forced to endure, well, a hard lesson in hard knocks brought upon him by underestimated Roswell foe John “Smiley” Herrera . . . click here for more

Great Falls, VA junior middleweight Jimmy Lange bounced back from a tough unanimous decision loss in March to knock out Weymouth, MA’s Jimmy “The Dream” LeBlanc in the second round. LeBlanc showed an early advantage by catching Lange with a left hand in the first round. But, as the boxers came from their corners to start the second round, Lange completely took over, scoring with a right hand to the body and a left to the head dropping LeBlanc for the first time. Two knockdowns later, referee Joe Cooper stopped the contest at 1:31 of the round. (more…)

After four knockdowns in the explosive—albeit short—fight, referee Luis Pabon halted the bout at 2:37 of round two, awarding Lopez the TKO to the delight of his hometown fans.

In the co-feature, interim WBA super flyweight world champion the “Filipino Flash” Nonito Donaire defended his title with an eighth-round technical knockout over young Hernan Marquez of Mexico. (more…)

Behind GBP’s NYSAC suspension

By Karl Freitag and Flattop

Fightnews.com has learned the details behind the New York State Athletic Commission’s suspension of Golden Boy Promotions. Oscar De La Hoya’s promotional powerhouse was placed under administrative suspension over a snafu involving the NYSAC’s request for promotional agreements involving the May 15 Amir Khan-Paul Malignaggi event in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Golden Boy Promotions COO David Itskowitch explained to Fightnews that since those agreements contain confidentiality clauses and New York is a “public information state,” the Muhammad Ali Act provides for those documents to be submitted to the Association of Boxing Commissions, which has been done. Itskowitch, added that the NYSAC had never given him a deadline nor communicated that a suspension was being considered. We would expect this to be cleared up in fairly short order one the NYSAC, the ABC and Golden Boy get on the same page.

Regarding reports of an alleged accounting discrepancy involving a half-million dollars from the event, Fightnews.com has spoken to two reliable sources with knowledge of the situation, and neither said that information is accurate.

Brosch decisions Fountain

By John Robbins / FightNews Canada

In a bloody main event at the Hershey Centre, Tebor Brosch won the vacant Canadian (CPBC) welterweight title with a seven round technical decision victory over Justin Fountain moments ago in Mississauga, Ontario. The contest was halted by the ringside physician with both fighters cut and bleeding over both eyes. The judges were split on trying to decide on a clear winner. Scores of the bout saw Brosch (6-3-4, 2KOs) ahead on two scorecards 68-65 and 68-66 while Fountain (6-3-3, 2KOs) was up on the third card 67-66 giving Brosch the decision victory and the national welterweight title.

On the undercard, undefeated Super Featherweight prospect Logan McGuinness (11-0-1, 5KOs) destroyed Jorge Banos, dropping the Quebec champ twice and forcing the ref to stop the fight in 2 minutes and 17 seconds. At the same time as the referee made his decision, so did Banos’ corner as they threw the white towel into the ring. McGuinness landed vicious body shots at will and just whooped Banos (6-7-3) from pillar to post.

In a battle of undefeated cruiserweights, Mississauga’s Denton Daley kept his winning streak intact, scoring a unanimous decision victory over Montreal’s Pasteur Mbuyi. Daley’s devastating power showed itself once again early in the second round, bringing the crowd at the Hershey Centre into a frenzy as Mbuyi clearly hit the deck from an uppercut however the referee did not acknowledge the knockdown. Daley displayed a veteran’s poise from there on in, outboxing his Montreal counterpart for the duration of the bout. Official scores read 39-37 (twice) and 39-36. Daley improves to 3-0 (1KO) while Mbuyi drops to 2-1.

Orangeville, Ontario’s Ryan Wagner stopped Chris Aucion at the 0:36 second mark of the 3rd round in a 4 round light middleweight contest. The ever ready Aucion was brutally dropped in the opening round, and rocked hard in the 2nd round, before an exclamation mark of a right hand stopped the action for good in the third round! Wagner improves to 2-0 (1KO) while Aucoin slips to 3-4-1.

In the opening bout of the evening at the latest installment of United Promotions 2010 Pro Boxing Series, Jonas Pierce was awarded a unanimous decision over Horace Hunter (0-2) in a 4 round Light heavyweight bout. Scores of the bout read 39-37 across the board in favor of Pierce, who was making his pro debut. The Hershey Centre faithful gave the officials an earful, obviously feeling that Hunter had done more than enough to achieve victory.
