Angulo training at Shaw’s house

154-pound contender Alfredo “Perro” Angulo (16-1, 13 KOs) has moved his training camp from Coachella, Calif. to the Wayne, NJ home of his promoter Gary Shaw. Angulo takes on unbeaten Harry Joe Yorgey (22-0-1, 10 KOs) on the November 7th card at the XL Center in Hartford, CT. The headliner is the light heavyweight rematch between Chad Dawson and Glen Johnson. “Angulo wanted to get acclimated to the climate and the time difference early so I invited his team to stay with me for this phase of training camp,” said Shaw.

Behind Velasquez-Rothwell

Ben Rothwell. The name may not ring any bells for most UFC fans. Fair enough. Rothwell is making his debut inside the Octagon against heavyweight prospect-turned-contender Cain Velazquez at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California on October 24, so his lack of mainstream recognition isn’t surprising. Keep in mind, however, . . .

Fightwriter on Froch-Dirrell

By Graham Houston

“There are fight analysts who wait until the last minute before making up their minds as to who will win. … They compare styles and pore over records. … They weigh tangibles and intangibles. They reach an opinion after being gnawed by doubts and nagged by uncertainties.” Those words were written by a New York Times sports columnist named Arthur Daley in 1954, and they reached out to me across the years because I have been weighed down by doubts and uncertainties while trying to formulate an opinion on Saturday’s “Super Six” fight between Carl Froch and Andre Dirrell, which will be televised live on Showtime from Nottingham in the English midlands (starting time is around 2 a.m. on Sunday in the U.K.).

Former world title challenger Antonio Pitalua (48-4, 42 KOs) scored an impressive fifth round TKO over veteran Wilfredo “Papin” Negron (26-12-1, 19 KOs) to claim the vacant WBO Latin welterweight title on Saturday night at Miccosukee Resort & Gaming in Miami, Florida. Pitalua dominated from the get-go and got a referee’s stoppage at the 2:09 mark of the fifth. In the co-feature, former world title challenger Joel “Love Child” Julio (35-3, 31 KOs) pounded out a six round unanimous decision over Clarence “Sonny Bono” Taylor (14-23-4, 7 KOs) in a middleweight clash. Scores were 60-54, 60-54, 59-55. More photos…

Booth stops Hunter

By Alexey Sukachev

At 31 years of age, long-time European top contender and former IBO super flyweight world champion Jason “2 Smooth” Booth (34-5, 14 KOs) scored the biggest victory of his career so far with a premature stoppage of fellow veteran Michael Hunter (29-2-1, 13 KOs) after five brutal rounds of beating. Ex-flyweight Booth, who was risking his BBBofC British super bantamweight title in this fight, took a beating from a much bigger former IBF title challenger in the first round. He, however, rebounded well in the second, and from that stanza on it was all Booth’s. He had been gradually breaking Hunter’s will till the fifth stanza. Middle into round five, Booth delivered a monstrous blow to the liver, which had Hunter reeling across the ring. He was never down but took severe punishment; severe enough to convince himself to retire on his stool just right after the end of the round. That can be an end of a long road for 31-year old Hartlepool native and a revival for the equally aged Jason Booth. (more…)

Froch, Dirrell make weight

Dirrell heavy, had to lose .4 pounds

There was high drama at the historic Old Market Square in Nottingham today when Andre “The Matrix” Dirrell failed to make the weight at the first time of asking ahead of his Super Six World Boxing Classic showdown with Carl “The Cobra” Froch at the Trent FM Arena tomorrow night. Earlier in the week WBC World Champion Froch intimated that his undefeated American challenger may be struggling to make the 168 pound Super Middleweight limit and he turned out to be correct as Dirrell’s first attempt at making the weight saw him tip the scales at 168.4 pounds. The Champion meanwhile had no issues and was all smiles as he was cheered on by thousands of “Cobra” fans in an open air weigh in the centre of Nottingham. Froch registered 167.4 pounds on the scales, a full pound lighter than the challenger’s first attempt. Dirrell quickly returned to the gym at his hotel to lose the excess poundage. He returned one hour later to finally make the weight on the second attempt registering 167.5 pounds on the scales. (more…)

Froch, Dirrell hurl insults

Tensions mounted in Nottingham on Wednesday during the final press conference for Super Six World Boxing Classic participants Carl Froch and Andre Dirrell. Froch turned up approximately 15 minutes late for the midday press conference. Dirrell and his promoter Gary Shaw took that as a sign of great disrespect. The stage was set for a verbal explosion once the conference finally got underway. During the tradition post-conference faceoff photo opportunity, Dirrell taunted and laughed in the face of Froch. The two have traded verbal jabs for weeks as the intensity builds toward this Saturday’s showdown at Trent FM Arena in Nottingham, England, live on SHOWTIME® at 8 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

Boom Boom stops Marabun

By Dennis Principe

Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista successfully returned from an 11-month hiatus as he stopped Marangin Marbun of Indonesia in the seventh round Friday night at the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu, Philippines. After some rusty moments in the first two rounds Bautista found his mark and floored Marabun with a stiff left jab in the third canto. Marabun recovered and gave Bautista tense moments in the succeeding rounds by hitting the Bohol native with good uppercuts and right straights. Bautista however came back strong and ended the bout as he hit Marabun with three succeeding jabs that sent the Indon reeling towards the canvass. In seeing Marabun badly hurt referee Bruce McTavish decided not to complete his count and waived of the match at 1:25 of the 7th round. The win improves Bautista’s record to 27 wins with 20 knockouts with only two losses while Marabun falls to 19 wins six losses and one draw. With the victory Bautista crowns himself the interim WBC International featherweight champion. (more…)
