Unbeaten heavyweight Erkan Teper stops Michael Sprott in 1st-round TKO win in Switzerland

By James Slater

In a fight that flew very much under the radar outside of Switzerland, unbeaten German heavyweight Erkan Teper scored the biggest win of his three-year pro career last night in Basel, as he scored a 1st-round TKO over the seasoned and well travelled Michael Sprott.

31-year-old, 6’5″ Teper scored with a right hand and Sprott was unable to recover. Improving to 11-0(7), Teper might have moved himself into position for some bigger fights. 38-year-old Sprott is now 37-21(17) and loser of six of his last seven outings. This could well be the end for the former British and Commonwealth champion.

Nkosinathi Joyi demolishes Alolod

By Ron Jackson

Former IBF strawweight champion Nkosinathi Joyi was back to his best as he demolished reigning champion Benezer Alolod from the Philippines in nine one-sided rounds to claim the WBC international light-flyweight title on Saturday night at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park. In an all southpaw clash Joyi (48, 82kg) dominated from the first bell as he battered the gutsy Alolod (48,56kg) from his southpaw stance, landing thudding right and left punches to the head and body throughout. Joyi outboxed and outpunched Alolod through the nine rounds and never looked like losing a round, and it was surprising to note that some of the judges had scored rounds in favour of the Filipino at the end of rounds four and eight the scores of which were announced as is the custom of the WBC. In round eight Alolod began to wilt and referee Simon Xamlashe of South Africa could have called the fight off as there was no way the light punching Filipino who has only won 2 of his previous fights inside the distance could pull off a victory. However, he allowed the battering to continue before Joyi landed a left hook to that sent Alolod crumpling down in the neutral corner where he was counted out at 2 minute 48 seconds into the round. Joyi takes his record to 24-2-1nc; 17 KOs and Alolod drops to 12-5-4; 2 KOs. (more…)

Makabu wins on a fifth round knockout

By Ron Jackson

Ilunga Makubu was most impressive in scoring a fifth round knockout win over Eric Fields to retain his WBC silver cruiserweight belt at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Saturday night. After a slow start Makabu (86,50kg) picked up the pace through rounds two to four against the bigger and heavier Fields (89.00kg) as he jolted the American’s head back on occasions that left him bleeding from the nose. In round five Makabu continued to score with right and left combinations from his southpaw stance before landing a classic left hook to the jaw that sent Shields down flat on his back where he was counted out by referee Robin Dolpierre of France at 1 minute 59 seconds into the round. However, the referee erred by not sending Makabu to a neutral corner before picking up the count. Makabu from the Republic of the Congo but based in South Africa improved his record to 15-1, 14 KOs and Fields dropped to 22-2, 16 KOs. This was the main event put on by Golden Gloves Promotions in an entertaining night of boxing.

Robles beats Landeros again in San Diego

By Felipe Leon at ringside

After an emotive ten count for fallen local fighter Pablo “Bronco” Armenta who was murdered earlier this week in Tijuana, California Boxing Hall of Fame promoter Bobby DePhilippis and his outfit Bobby D Presents launched the latest installment of their “San Diego Fights” series last Friday night at the only home for San Diego boxing, the Four Points by Sheraton in the suburb of Kearny Mesa. After Tijuana featherweight Luis Ventura (0-1) failed a late MRI test and was deemed not able to participate in his scheduled four round bout against the popular Prince “Tiger” Smalls (1-0-1), the fight card became a four bout fight card. Despite of that, there were no complaints from the local San Diego fight crowd as they enjoyed another exciting fight night in on a balmy San Diego evening.

After female junior flyweight Amaris “Diamond Girl” Quintana accidentally slammed a window on her left hand and postponed her much awaited return to the ring after a year hiatus for a couple more months, the main event fell on the shoulders of undefeated junior welterweight Emmanuel “Renegade” Robles (9-0-1, 3KOs). He did not disappoint as he completely dominated the rough, tough and durable Adolfo “Terror” Landeros (22-33-2, 10KOs) for six rounds. The bout marked the second time these both fighters met with the first being back in February where Robles won a unanimous decision over six rounds. (more…)

UFC 164 main bouts: It’s ‘Showtime’ again!

Pettis dethrones lightweight champ Henderson

It was a long road for outgoing WEC champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis to get his title shot, postponed first by Frankie Edgar rematches, then Octagon losses, then various injuries, including one that took him out of his scheduled featherweight title shot. But the road ended in his own backyard as he rematched Benson Henderson in the main event of UFC 164 inside Milwaukee’s Bradley Center. And nearly three years after nabbing the WEC lightweight belt from Henderson in their classic 2010 fight, Pettis again took the gold – this time in less than a round . .

Luke “Razor” Sharp (7-0-2) scored a controversial split decision victory over Xavier “X-Man” Lucas (6-1-1, 4KOs) in the main event of Dragon Fire Promotions Thunderdome III at Metro City Perth, Australia tonight. Sharp claimed the vacant Western Australian State Light Heavyweight Title to add to his IBO Asia Pacific Middleweight title.

But many ringside observers believed that Lucas had done enough to earn the points decision and were surprised when the judge’s scores were read out 77-75 for Sharp, 77-76 for Lucas, and 77-76 for Sharp. Fightnews scored the bout 77–75 for Lucas.

Lucas was left wondering what he needs to do to get a judge’s decision at Thunderdome. (more…)

If Lomachenko wins a world title in second pro fight, it won’t be an official record

In 1975, Saensak Muangsurin won the WBC light welterweight world title in only his third professional fight. Two-time Ukrainian Olympic gold medalist Vasyl “The Great” Lomachenko is aiming to become a world champion in just two fights after signing a professional contract with Top Rank. However, if Lomachenko is successful, he will not be officially recognized as breaking Muangsurin’s record.

Fight Fax, Inc., boxing’s official recordkeeper, lists Lomachenko as already having six pro fights. This problem was created by the AIBA, which allows boxers to compete in paid WSB pro bouts, while retaining their amateur status.

According to Fight Fax, Lomachenko’s WSB bouts are included in his pro record since he used 8 oz gloves, the fights had three judges, one referee, no head gear and most importantly, he got paid. Other fighters haunted by their paid “amateur” fights include U.S. Olympians JoJo Diaz and Terrell Gausha who both have WSB losses included on their official pro records.

Chambers: I will show the world that I am a long way from being done

By “Fast” Eddie Chambers

This is an open letter to the fans who support me as well to those who don’t. First off, I want to congratulate my opponent Thibiso Mchunu of South Africa for his victory against me. I do not want to in any form or fashion diminish that win by making excuses about my performance in the ring. I did my best that I could to make the fight. To win the fight. Losing this decision woke up my spirit to compete again and I will continue to pursue my career as a Cruiserweight. I felt fine throughout the bout. The weight loss was not a factor in my performance. I did not expect Mchunu to fight such a defensive, awkward fight. I was trying to follow instructions from my trainer, James Ali Bashir. It was very difficult to do as I am a counter puncher as well who was forced into being the aggressor. I felt that if I did not doing something to make the fight, there would have been no action during the fight. I am not that kinda guy who is going to lay around crying over spilled milk. (more…)

At 108-pounds it was confirmed that junior flyweight champion Donnie Nietes of the Philippines is cut and will be sidelined for a short period of time. #1 ranked Moises Fuentes of Mexico is slated to fight for a International title, a move that will certainly position him for the mandatory slot when Nietes recovers from his cut. At flyweight President Valcarcel and the board confirmed that Mexican champion Juan Francisco Estrada will need to fight a mandatory defense in his next fight. Promoter Fernando Beltran requested that the winner of the November 7th matchup between #1 ranked Giovani Segura and #2 ranked Hernan Tyson Marquez, both of Mexico, declared the mandatory challenger for the champion. The board unanimously agreed. (more…)
