Mexican-American heavyweight Eric “Drummer Boy” Molina improved to 18-1 after stopping a game but overmatched Warren Browning tonight in Las Vegas. Molina, a towering 6 foot 6 inch heavyweight from Lyford, Texas, showed considerable power in his right hand that sent Browning to the mat several times before Robert Byrd stepped in to halt the beating 24 seconds into the third round. “It was great to be in front of this big crowd in Vegas at the Hard Rock, “Molina said after the win. “I never thought about bending over tonight. Mexican blood flows through my veins and I ain’t going down ever again. They now know there is a true Mexican-American heavyweight contender out there, and it’s Eric Molina. I want to be the first one to win a world championship.” (more…)

Alvarez-Mundine for WBA title?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Sources inform that former WBA interim super welterweight champion Rigoberto “Español” Alvarez will fight former WBA super middleweight titleholder Anthony “The Man” Mundine for a vacant WBA interim 154lb title September 7 in Australia. Alvarez (27-3, 20 KOs) became WBA interim super welterweight titlist after beating Nobuhiro Ishida in October 2010 and lost the belt in his first defense in February 2011 against Austin Trout. Mundine (42-4, 25 KOs) was 168lb champion between 2003 and 2007. Rigoberto, the brother of WBC champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, has already been training for a month in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.

In the main event of Strikeforce Challengers, which took place at The Pearl inside The Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Joe Duarte earned a unanimous decision victory over seasoned veteran Jorge Gurgel.

It was yet another mind boggling performance by Gurgel, who opted to stand and try to trade with Duarte rather than utilize his world class jiujitsu – something he had promised in the pre-fight hype . . . Click here for more

Antonio Diaz stated before his fight against Ernesto Zepeda on Friday night that the 10 round bout would be his last one of his career. He sure picked a fight to show his true tenacity of rallying from behind against a durable opponent. Diaz was able to earn the stoppage victory when Zepeda was able to continue after the eighth round before a sold-out crowd of about 2,000 at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, CA. (more…)

Dream Team Boxing transformed the Seminole Hard Rock Live from a rock & roll concert venue to a raucous & rollicking boxing mecca last night. The near-capacity crowd swelling the arena proved local boxing fans will come out for a night of boxing entertainment, despite years of previous promotional misfires. Perhaps that is why Dream Team promoters Carlos Rodriguez and Henry Rivalta named their seven-bout card “The Dream Begins.” The overall level of entertainment, production value and competition marked a distinct turning point for South Florida boxing promotions at the pre-eminent site.

SHOWTIME Bantam Tourney Finale

By Graham Houston

Put two excellent boxers in the ring against each other in a fight that either man can win and you have the ingredients for a highly competitive and compelling contest, which is what I am expecting when Abner Mares meets Joseph Agbeko in the final of the Showtime bantamweight tournament from Las Vegas on Saturday. Mares was a slight betting favourite prior to the bout’s original date of April 23. This time, Mares is something like -215 at the sportsbooks although I would make the odds much tighter.

Agbeko’s lively workouts show a full recovery from the sciatica problem that caused the bout to be postponed from the original April date, but Mares is looking very strong and has had the aura of a winner in the week of the fight, carrying himself with a quiet certitude.

Mares is seen as the rising star, a popular, talented Mexican-born boxer from southern California who showed heart and staying power in his last two fights, the gruelling draw with Yonnhy Perez (a bout that Mares seemed clearly to win) and his split decision victory over Vic Darchinyan. Mares, 25, is the younger fighter with the fresher look. (more…)

Katsidis blows away Lozada

Former two-time lightweight champion Michael Katsidis (28-4, 23 KOs) scored a third round KO over Michael Lozada (38-9-1, 30 KOs) in a jr welterweight bout on Saturday at the Gold Coast Convention Centre, Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia. In his first bout on Australian soil in five years Katsidis finished the show with a barrage of body punches. Time was 2:18. Katsidis now plans to campaign in the 140lb division.

In a huge upset on the undercard, journeyman featherweight Jack Asis (24-18-4, 13 KOs) scored a stunning second round TKO over highly regarded former world title challenger Nestor Rocha (23-3, 8 KOs). Rocha entered the fight rated at IBF #15 in the bantamweight division.

Barrett stuns Tua

Heavyweight Monte Barrett (35-9-2, 20 KOs) outboxed WBO #3 rated David Tua (52-4-2, 43 KOs) over twelve rounds to win a unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Telstra Clear Events Centre in Auckland, New Zealand. Tua knocked down Barrett in round twelve, but Barrett survived until the final bell and won by scores of 114-113, 115-112, 115-112. Barrett and Tua had previously fought to a surprising draw in July 2010 and this was to be Tua’s revenge rematch, however instead it turned out to be the 40-year-old Barrett’s first win in over three years and the 38-year-old Tua is left to ponder whether or not to continue his career.

From the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, televised on Showtime: Guam native Joe Duarte counterpunched his way to a unanimous decision win over Jorge Gurgel in the main event of Strikeforce Challengers 18. Gurgel was the busier of the two in round one, and might’ve forced the action through the fight, but it was Duarte’s takedown defense, counterpunching and cleaner shots that earned him the win. Scorecards read 30-37 and 29-28 twice. (more…)

Paredes halts Ramos

By Phil Doherty at ringside

Dream Team Boxing Promotions staged arguably the most compelling night of boxing from the Seminole Hard Rock tonight in front of inarguably the largest and loudest local crowd in memory.

Welterweight contender Ed “The Lion” Paredes (27-3-1, 17 KOs) made good on his promise to stop Juliano Ramos (16-5, 13 KOs) in his 10-round main event-although it took him twice as long as predicted. Scoring a wicked straight right counter after Ramos whiffed with his own, Paredes sent the feisty Brazilian puncher to the canvas at 2:17 of the eighth round. Ramos bravely tried to rise on spaghetti legs but couldn’t keep his balance as referee Telis Assimenios halted the action. The Hollywood-hometown Paredes picks up the vacant WBO Latino belt with the dominating victory, seeking his first world title shot in the talent-rich division. (more…)

“This is it for me,” Diaz said after the fight. “I can’t do this anymore. I had a great career that last almost 20 years. I appreciate the fans supporting me.” For more details and photos click here…
