Mandatory challenger Tony Bellew “can’t wait” to fight Adonis Stevenson

By James Slater

WBC #1 light heavy contender Tony Bellew gave his post-fight thoughts on new WBC 175-pound king Adonis Stevenson’s sensational KO win over Chad Dawson last night, and as impressed as Bellew was by the new champ’s win, Bellew made it clear he relishes the thought of fighting Stevenson. A guest on Sky Sports to analyse the fight, “Bomber” had the following things to say:

“Stevenson is a serious puncher but he is wild,” he said. “I don’t think he’ll be a long standing champion, not if I’ve got anything to do with it, but you’ve got to give him respect. I don’t think that (the Andre Ward fight) played any part in the fight, Dawson never showed Stevenson the proper respect. (more…)

Soto sends message to Morales, destroys Nakamori

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican three-time world champion Humberto “Zorrita” Soto (61-8-2, 35 KOs) showed onlooking ring legend Erik Morales what he is in for if Soto and Morales meet in Morales’ farewell fight. Soto mercilessly battered and stopped Hiroshi Nakamori (33-6-1, 20 KOs) in nine brutal rounds to retain his WBC International silver belt on Saturday night at the Monumental Villa Charra Carlos Bowser Gonzalez in Tijuana. The super game Nakamori took a lot of punishment before the bout was finally halted by the ring doctor due to damage to Nakamori’s left eye.

Soto and Morales had been talking up a possible showdown all during fight week and Morales was at ringside to observe his next possible opponent.

In another fight, light flyweight Jose Alfredo Zuniga (11-4-1, 5 KOs) surprisingly upset Luis “Pollito” Ceja (23-4-3, 19 KOs) by unanimous decision to seize Ceja’s WBC International silver belt. (more…)

In a non-stop action slugfest, hard-hitting Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (34-3, 31 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over “The Riverside Rocky” Josesito Lopez (30-7, 18 KOs) on Saturday night before a huge crowd at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. Maidana caught Lopez with an overhand right to the chin sending him to the canvas. Lopez quickly got up and appeared to be staggered as Marcos Maidana continued his assault referee Pat Russell stepped in to stop the contest at 1:18 of the sixth round. Lopez was up on two scorecards 48-47 at the time of the stoppage. Maidana was ahead 48-47 on the third card.

In an all out war, Erislandy Lara (18-1-2, 12KO) survived a fourth round knockdown and a ninth round knockdown to stop Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KO) at 1:52 of the tenth round and claim the vacant WBA Interim Super Welterweight belt. With the two engaging in an exchange in the tenth round, Angulo, after getting caught with a hard punch, seemed to suffer a broken orbital bone, turned his back and referee Raul Caiz Sr. called an end to the fight. At the time of the stoppage, Lara was ahead 85-84 on two of the judges scorecards with Angulo ahead 86-83 on the other judges scorecard. Lara, however, took it out of the judges hands and left a capacity pro-Angulo crowd tremendously disappointed. (more…)

Challenger Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 17 KOs) scored a one-punch knockout in the very first round to dethrone WBC light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (31-3, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Belle Center in Montreal, Canada. A left hand dropped Dawson and he got up wobbly prompting the referee to wave it off after 76 seconds. After the fight, the new champion called out Bernard Hopkins and Andre Ward.

After the fight, referee Michael Griffin said he wanted to give Dawson every chance he could to continue. “He didn’t respond, he didn’t have his legs.”

Unbeaten former champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (23-0, 16 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Darley Perez (28-1, 19 KOs) to claim the vacant WBA interim lightweight title. Gamboa scored a flash knockdown in round one and that was pretty much the end of the highlights. Scores were 116-111, 116-111, 115-112. Gamboa has now won WBA interim belts in three weight divisions.
