Pavlik far from done

Story by Andreas Hale

Boxing has always had a “what have you done for me lately” attitude. Fans and journalists alike often neglect the accomplishments of any fighter should they lose a (God forbid) a fight or disappear from the spotlight for an extended period of time. Kelly Pavlik is the perfect example of this attitude . . . Click here for more

Blueprint: GSP vs. Shields

UFC 129 is LIVE on PPV Apr. 30!

I said I would not do it again.

I might have even promised — no crossed fingers or anything silly like that. Actually, I guaranteed it. Go back and read my UFC 124 post mortem. After predicting that Georges St-Pierre would suffer an upset loss at the hands of Josh Koscheck, I stated without equivocation I would not pick against Georges St-Pierre in another fight, unless his opponent happened to be Anderson Silva. . . .

Vic back with a vengeance

By Graham Houston

Every now and again, a fight that looks evenly balanced on paper turns out to be a mismatch, and so it was on Saturday night when Vic Darchinyan destroyed Yonnhy Perez in five rounds on Showtime. Although the fight ended anti-climactically on a technical decision, Darchinyan had been dominant in every round and seemed sure to stop Perez in another two or three rounds.

Darchinyan had promised before the fight that he would go back to his old power-punching method after experimenting with a more elusive style, and he delivered on his words. It seemed that Darchinyan hadn’t packed a great deal of punching power in previous bantamweight bouts against Joseph Agbeko and Abner Mares. This was different, though — this was a brutal battering of a fighter who was considered to be durable. (more…)

Soto-Estrada in Mexico?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Some sources indicate that there is a possibility that current WBC lightweight champion Humberto ‘Zorrita’ Soto will defend his belt against #5 rated Daniel ‘Tremendo’ Estrada on either June 4th or 25th at a venue to be determined in Mexico. Word is negotiations are underway and we expect to find out this week if this fight is finalized. Soto recently pulled out of a title rematch against Urbano Antillon scheduled for the May 6 Pacquiao-Mosley undercard and declared himself a free agent. It would be Soto’s fourth defense of the lightweight crown.

Byarm; McRae KO foes in DC

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Two local heavyweights scored fifth-round techinical knockouts in front of their home fans Saturday night on the inaugural Hard Times Promotions card at the DC Star Nightclub in Washington, DC.

The main event saw DC heavyweight Maurice “Freight Train” Byarm remain undefeated with a fifth-round TKO over “Mr. P” Willie Palms of Jersey City, NJ. Byarm, who was born in Philadelphia and the son of Lionel Byarm, Evander Holyfield’s opponent in Holyfield’s pro debut, was in complete control of the contest and he exchanged in the corners with the game Palms. The bout was stopped in a strange way. In the fifth round, Byarm hit Palms with a bodyshot that drove Palms slumping in the neutral corner. Referee Dr. Joe Cooper called it a knockdown saying the corner stopped Palms from hitting the canvas. Palms was angered by the call and walked disgustedly to his corner before the bell rang, forcing Cooper to stop the contest at 1:50 of the fifth. Byarm is now 11-0, eight KO’s while Palms’s record evens at 10-10-1, five KO’s.

In the co-feature, Laurel, MD heavy “The Big Ticket” Dwayne McRae scored a fifth-round technical knockout over James Porter of Terre Haute, IN. Both men scored knockdowns in the bout. Porter stayed in the bout despite having four points taken from him for low blows and one point deducted for continually dropping his mouthpiece. Eventually, the heavy hands of McRae proved to be the difference as Porter stayed against the ropes and did not fight back. The bout was stopped at 1:59 of the fifth. McRae is now 10-2, five KO’s. Porter is 5-14-2, one KO. (more…)

Darchinyan weighs next move

Photos: Big Joe Miranda

After witnessing Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan’s dominant performance against former champion Yonnhy Perez Saturday night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, promoter Gary Shaw says the two-time world champion will have several options. “Vic was sensational tonight,” said Shaw. “He’s always magnificent when he’s coming off a loss. He comes back better and that’s what happened again tonight. I respect Yonnhy Perez very much for taking all of Vic’s punches, because Vic maintained he was stronger than ever and he was right. He was an animal tonight.” Shaw says that while he plans to petition the IBF to sanction an interim title fight for Darchinyan, and in the process give him the rematch against Abner Mares he badly craves, if that doesn’t work out tonight’s performance has given the Armenian plenty of options.

More on Darchinyan-Perez

In one of the most powerful performances of his career, two-division world champion Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan dominated former IBF bantamweight titlist Yonnhy “El Colombiano” Perez en route to winning a fifth-round technical decision and the vacant IBO 118-pound title Saturday on SHOWTIME®. The diminutive Darchinyan was in total command from the outset of a scheduled 12-round bout at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, scored a knockdown in the second and was ahead 50-44 on the three scorecards when the one-sided slugfest was halted due to an accidental headbutt at 1:44 of the round.

Southpaw Darchinyan, of Sydney, Australia, by way of Armenia, improved to 36-3-1 with 27 knockouts while Colombia’s Perez, of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., fell to 20-2-1 with 14 KOs after losing his second consecutive start.

By winning a fight elevated to main event status after a bout between IBF champion Joseph Agbeko and undefeated Abner Mares was postponed after Agbeko withdrew after suffering what doctors diagnosed as likely the sudden onset of sciatica earlier in the week, Darchyinan sets himself up for possible rematches with both Agbeko and Mares, both of whom he lost decisions to.

It also likely means another possible appearance on SHOWTIME for the crowd-pleasing Darchinyan, who made his 13th appearance on the network Saturday night. He is #3 on the all-time list for network appearances behind Julio Cesar Chavez (17) and Evander Holyfield. (more…)

Dream Team Boxing Promotions served notice to the South Florida boxing scene tonight with their debut card in front of a packed house at the Miami-Dade Fair & Expo Center. The celebratory atmosphere resulted from years of experience and enthusiasm as well as serious hard work from promoter Henry Rivalta. Judging by the electricity in the standing-room only arena and the competitive bouts in the ring, Rivalta and his gregarious business partner, Carlos Rodriguez look to be living the Dream.

Cuban southpaw heavyweight sensation Luis “El Mercedes” Ortiz (8-0, 6 KOs) destroyed Philadelphia veteran “Smokin” Bert Cooper (38-23, 31 KOs) by TKO at 1:29 in the second round of their scheduled 10-round main event. (more…)
