Pascal defeats Dawson

By Dave Spencer/Fightnews Canada
Photos by Herby Whyne

UPDATED: WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (26-1, 16 KOs) scored an eleven round technical decision over previously unbeaten WBC interim light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (29-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal before a crowd of 8122 enthusiastic fans. Pascal also captures Dawson’s IBO belt along with the Ring Magazine vacant 175 pound championship.

A desperate Dawson went for the KO in round eleven and looked like he might do it before suffering a bad cut from an accidental headbutt that sent the bout to the scorecards.

Final scores read 106-103, 106-103 and an inexplicable tally of 108-101 from the lone Canadian judge, Jack Woodburn who somehow gave the 11th round to Pascal, despite the fact the reigning champion was hanging on weathering a fierce barrage from Dawson who was able to land a debilitating uppercut early in the round.

Moreno edges Cermeño again

By Gabriel F. Cordero

In a direct rematch, WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo Moreno (30-1-1, 10 KOs) again won a close split decision over former interim champ Nehomar Cermeño (19-2, 11 KOs) at the Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City. Again it was a close, hotly contested affair riding on the perspective of the judges. Scores were 117-112, 115-113 Moreno, 115-113 Cermeño. Moreno won their first fight by split decision in Venezuala five months ago.

In a clash for the vacant WBA middleweight title, unbeaten WBA #1 ranked Gennady Golovkin (19-0, 16 KOs) needed just 58 seconds to annihilate #13 ranked Milton Nuñez (21-2-1, 19 KOs) in the first round. The WBA belt became vacant when Felix Sturm was elevated to WBA “super champion” status.

Vazquez wins IBF lightweight title

Photos by Pete Susens

IBF #3 lightweight Miguel Vazquez (26-3, 12 KOs) scored a lopsided unanimous decision over #1 Ji Hoon Kim (21-6, 18 KOs) to claim the vacant IBF lightweight championship on Saturday night at the Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas. Vazquez comprehensively outboxed the aggressive Kim, who rarely took a step back. Vazquez’ movement almost totally negated Kim’s pressure on the way to a well-earned 119-109, 120-108, 118-110 win. The title had been vacant since Nate Campbell lost the belt on the scale in February 2009. Ali Funeka had a chance to win the belt that night, but lost a majority decision. Joan Guzman fought Funeka last November for the vacant belt, but that bout ended in a draw.

In an IBF featherweight eliminator, unbeaten IBF #7 rated Mikey Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) scored an impressive eleventh round KO over rugged #10 rated Cornelius Lock (19-6-1, 12 KOs). Garcia dropped Lock in round three with a huge right hand and proceeded to deal Lock a brutal beating. The fight was waved off when Garcia floored a thoroughly beaten Lock again in round eleven. Time was 1:09. (more…)

Ex-champ Garay wins in 15 sec

Former WBA Light heavyweight champion Hugo Garay (33-5, 18 KOs) of Argentina got back into the win column in a big way crushing Marcelo Leandro Da Silva of Brazil (19-3, 14 KOs) by way of first round knockout. Literally seconds after the fighters touched gloves in an act of sportsmanship to start the fight Garay landed a solid right to the chin of Da Silva sending him crashing to the canvas where he was counted out. The official time of the bout was just 15 seconds. Garay entered the bout off of back to back losses to Chris Henry and Gabriel Campillo to whom he lost his world title in 2009.

In the main event of the evening WBA & WBO female light flyweight champion Yessica Bopp (13-0, 5 KOs) of Argentina retained her titles with a unanimous decision victory over Ana Arrazola (17-5-3, 15 KOs) of Mexico. Bopp gave up a major height advantage to Arrazola but was able to dominate easily from the outside and inside all night long. Each round seemed to be a reptition of the other as Bopp won both the offensive and defensive battles throughout the contest. The official judges scores were 100-90,100-89, and 100-89 all in favor of Bopp.

The event took place at the Club Deportivo Libertad, Sunchales, in Santa Fe, Argentina. Osvaldo Rivero promoted the event.

Welterweight Jesus Pabon (15-1, 9 KOs) scored an eighth round stoppage over veteran Ernesto “Baby” Zepeda (39-14-4, 34 KOs) on Friday night at the A La Carte Event Pavillion in Tampa, Florida. Pabon was on the deck twice in round two and again in round three from punches ruled to be low. Zepeda was deducted a point for the infraction in round three. Pabon was down from another blow ruled as a low blow in the sixth, but he had also did good work busting up Zededa’s face and flooring him at the end of the seventh. The bout was stopped by the ring doctor after round seven. Official time was :01 of round eight. Pabon claims the vacant WBO Latino welter belt.
