WBO cruiserweight Marco Huck (34-1, 25 KOs) scored a six round beatdown of Rogelio Rossi (17-3-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Ludwigsburg Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Southpaw Rossi was deducted a point for a low blow in round three. Huck was credited with a knockdown later in the same round. Huck dropped Rossi with a punch after the bell in round four and was deducted two points by referee Paul Thomas. Huck went right after Rossi in the fifth and dropped Rossi again. Rossi was down for the second time in the round from a body shot before the bell. Huck laid him out in the sixth with a huge right hand to end it. No time was given. Rossi was down for an extended time and a stretcher was brought to the ring, but Rossi appeared to be OK.
Unbeaten middleweight Dominik Britsch (26-0, 9 KOs) scored a hard fought twelve round majority decision over scrappy former world title challenger Billy Lyell (24-10, 5 KOs). Lyell was the aggressor and outworked Britsch over much of the fight, but Britsch’s flurries resonated with the judges in a 114-114, 117-111, 116-113 verdict.
Unbeaten heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (14-0, 6 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over game Travis Walker (38-7-1, 30 KOs) in a clash for the vacant IBF International heavyweight title. Pulov built up a lead as Walker slowed down. Walker was unlucky as a punch cut Pulov over the right eye in round seven, but was mistakenly ruled as an unintentional headbutt by referee Allan Huggins. By the eighth Walker seemed completely gassed. Walker had little left in the ninth and was deducted a point for losing his mouthpiece. Walker barely made it back to his corner after round eleven and somehow made it through the twelfth, as well. Scores were 119-109, 118, 109, 117-110.
Former world title challenger Enad Licina (21-3, 11 KOs) outpointed Hari Miles (6-4, 2 KOs) over eight by scores of 78-74, 79-73, 79-76.
Unbeaten middleweight Marcos Nader (13-0, 2 KOs) outpointed Lorenzo Cosseddu (27-7-5, 3 KOs) over eight.
Light heavyweight Robert Woge (6-0, 5 KOs) stopped John Waldron (5-6, 2 KOs) in round two.
World ranked super welterweight David “The Destroyer” Lopez will see action on October 29, on the undercard of the rematch between WBA flyweight champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez and former champ Luis “Nica” Conception at the Centro de Usos Múltiples (CUM) in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. Lopez (40-12-0, 23 KOs), who lost in a world title shot against WBA champion Austin Trout in June, will face TBA. He is now promoted by Zanfer.
There’s something about Donald Cerrone that suggests he’s filled with attitude. He walks to the cage to Kid Rock’s “Cowboy,” wearing a confident expression that gives off a direct vibe: He doesn’t think, he KNOWS he’s going to win . . . Click here for more by Jon Lane, UFC.com

It’s good big man against good small man on HBO on Saturday when Nonito Donaire, the fast and powerful Filipino Flash, defends his bantamweight title against Omar Narvaez, the veteran from Argentina who moves up in weight from the 115-pound division. Donaire is, predictably, a massive betting favourite. He is the younger man, taller, bigger, far more explosive — and probably just as quick as Narvaez. Although Narvaez was slightly the heavier man at Friday’s weigh-in, Donaire will pack on pounds after replenishing his system and will probably have a considerable weight advantage by the time the two boxers get into the ring.
At first glance, this looks like a blowout. Donaire was devastating in his knockout wins over Vic Darchinyan, Wladimir Sidorenko and Fernando Montiel. None had previously been stopped, but all found themselves on the canvas and out of the fight against Donaire in bouts that didn’t make it past the fifth round.
Narvaez is tough, smart and skilled, he has excellent punch-anticipation, and he is a southpaw. There is an impressive calmness about Narvaez in the ring. He is very good at making an opponent miss and countering. Capable fighters have been made to look ordinary as the Argentinean maestro has handed out boxing lessons. It is possible that, for defensive cleverness, Narvaez is on a par with his countryman, the “untouchable” 140-pound champion Nicolino Locche. (more…)

Undefeated super middleweight Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (20-0, 14 KOs) won an exciting ten round slugfest Friday night, sweeping every round on all three judges’ scorecard, against previously unbeaten Will “Power” Rosinsky (14-1, 8 KOs) in the main event on ShoBox: The New Generation LIVE on SHOWTIME® from MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut. The surprising shutout on all three official cards did not at all reflect the competitiveness of the fight, which all three members of the SHOWTIME announce crew scored 95-95. (more…)

Friday night in front of a raucous hometown crowd at the Rodeway Inn in Allentown, PA, heavyweight banger Jamie “Big Stuff” Miranda (4-4-1) gained a little sweet revenge in capturing a well deserved unanimous decision victory in a rematch of Baltimore Maryland’s Lonnie Kornegay (1-5-2). In the co-feature of the Pro-Am card promoted by Marshall Kauffman’s Kings Promotions, undefeated super bantamweight prospect Josh Bowles moved to 3-0 by dropping Tevin Farmer (2-2) once en-route to a convincing four round unanimous decision victory.

Former world heavyweight contender Alex Leapai (24-3-3, 19 KOs) scored a crushing KO of Russian giant Evgeny Orlov (13-9-1, 8 KOs) at 1:48 of round four at the Broncos Leagues club, Red Hill, Queensland, Australia. Orlov, 6’9 and 316 pounds, presented problems in rounds one and two as he used his height and reach effectively and also tied up Leapai when he got in close, but in round three Leapai found the range for his power shots hurting the Russian with head and body shots, and in round four a power right uppercut dropped Erlov cold and referee Tony Kettlewell counted the importation out. Orlov committed several infringements during the contest and in round two was deducted a point for continually pushing Leapai’s head down. (more…)

Lightweight slugger Fidel Maldonado (12-0, 10 KOs) kept his unbeaten record in tact with a close eight round unanimous decision over Erick Cruz (13-8-3, 13 KOs) on Friday night at the Pharr Convention Center in Pharr, Texas. Maldonado dropped Cruz in round one and that made the difference as he and went to to win an exciting scrap by scores of 77-74 and 76-75 twice. With the win, Maldonado claimed the vacant WBC Youth silver belt.
Unbeaten jr middleweight Jorge Suarez (5-0, 3 KOs) recovered from a first round knockdown to win a six round unanimous decision over Larry Smith (10-7, 6 KOs). Scores were 58-54, 57-77, 57-55.

In his second fight under the guidance of trainer Ronnie Shields, undefeated super middleweight prospect Edwin Rodriguez (20-0, 14 KO’s) won a unanimous decision over the previously undefeated Will Rosinsky (14-1, 8 KO’s) in an all action fight headlining Showtime’s “Shobox” card Friday night at the MGM Grand Foxwoods in Connecticut. Rodriguez was able to impose his size and will on the incredibly tough Rosinsky for most of the fight and ripped combinations to his opponent’s head and body. However, Rosinsky never wilted and had success himself, particularly with his lead left hand which he landed regularly throughout the bout. In the end, all three official ringside judges scored the fight a surprising shutout for Rodriguez 100-90. The general consensus amongst press row was that Rodriguez earned the win, but the scores were too wide.
In the co-feature of Showtime’s “Shobox” card at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut, Brooklyn’s Gabriel Bracero (18-0, 3 KO’s) stayed unbeaten with a 10 round beatdown of intrastate foe Daniel Sostre (11-5-1, 4 KO’s) of Highland, New York. Sostre was game, but Bracero was clearly in another class and won on all three scorecards. Official scores were 100-90 (twice) and 99-91 for Bracero. (more…)
