“Sweetness” Allan Green handed “Marvelous” Tarvis Simms his first career defeat in a fight that started late Friday and ended early Saturday morning on an exciting tripleheader on ShoBox: The New Generation. “It went exactly how I expected,” said the favored Green, who won the super middleweight 10-round decision unanimously, 98-92, 99-91 and 97-93. Green was fighting on SHOWTIME for the fifth time in his career and who moved his record to 29-1 (20 KOs). “I was just in better shape than he was. I won the fight. I didn’t care how I did it.

Boxing Result

Uchiyama, Kono victorious

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten WBC#2/WBA#4 super-feather champ Takashi Uchiyama (13-0, 10 KOs), 130, kept his OPBF belt as he pummeled OPBF#1 Philippine titlist Aaron Melgarejo (17-7-1, 6 KOs), 130, into submission at 1:01 of the seventh round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Uchiyama, formerly four-time national amateur champ, registered his fifth defense of the regional belt when his lopsided assault caused the loser’s cornerman to toss in the towel for surrender. Melgarejo positively threw solid left-right combinations, almost all of which were averted by the champ’s excellent defensive skills. Uchiyama, one of the brightest prospects here, often displayed well-timed counters and wicked body shots that visibly weakened the game challenger.

In a companion OPBF title go, WBA#3/WBC#5 super-fly Kohei Kono (24-4, 8 KOs), 114.75, also retained his belt as he surprisingly hit the deck in the first, but dropped back OPBF#1 Marvin Tampus (21-9-2, 13 KOs), 114.75, in the final session, winning a unanimous nod (116-111 twice and 116-110) over twelve. Kono had previously failed to wrest the WBA 115-pound belt from compatriot and current champ Nobuo Nashiro via split duke in September last year, and regained his OPBF throne by defeating Filipino ruler Daniel Ferreras on points this May. This was Kono’s initial defense since. Promoter: Watanabe Promotions.

ShoBox tripleheader tonight

Unbeaten records at risk in each fight

Three excellent matchups on tonight’s edition of ShoBox: The New Generation (live on SHOWTIME at 11PM ET/PT). In the main event, WBC #6 super middleweight contender Allan Green (28-1, 20 KOs) takes on unbeaten southpaw Tarvis Simms (25-0-1 11 KOs) at the First Council Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma.

Green has previously fought lefthanders three times in his career, all victories. “And they were all on short notice too,” he said. Simms, who has long sought a major fight, got the opportunity when Green’s original foe Victor Oganov was injured less then two weeks before the fight. “I know people aren’t picking me to win,” said Simms, “but that’s why I’m going to go out there and shock the world.”

In the second televised fight of the night, welterweight Antwone Smith (16-1-1, 8 KOs) takes on unbeaten Henry Crawford (22-0-1, 9 KOs) in a ten-rounder battle between two of the division’s brightest prospects. The TV opener features unbeaten Marcus “Too Much” Johnson (17-0, 14 KOs) against Victor Villereal (8-3-2, 4 KOs) in an eight-round super middleweight affair.

Senchenko to make 1st defense

Yefimovich vs Pickering in co-feature

By Alexey Sukachev

The scene is set for an upcoming WBA welterweight championship in Donetsk, Ukraine. The stir is already being felt around Druzhba Palace of Sports and in the city, as both boxing fans and casual citizens are in a clear anticipation of the first home defense for the local hero Vyacheslav Senchenko (29-0, 20 KOs), which takes place this Saturday night. Senchenko, 31, who is virtually unknown worldwide, enjoys a fascinating following in the heart of Donets Basin. The former 2000 Olympian for Ukraine started his pro career in June 2002 and fought just five times outside of his hometown and only once outside the Eastern Europe. That, however, hasn’t prevented him from winning a major belt, while fighting exclusively in Donetsk for the last three years. (more…)
