Wlodarczyk stops Fragomeni

Claims vacant WBC cruiserweight belt

By Karl Freitag

In a clash for the vacant WBC cruiserweight title, WBC #1 rated Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk (43-2-1, 32 KOs) scored an eighth round TKO over WBC #2 Giacobbe Fragomeni (26-3-1, 10 KOs) to claim the belt formerly held by Zsolt Erdei on Saturday night at the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland.

King Posts $1 Million Bond

Mayorga MMA clash cancelled

After winning an emergency injunction this afternoon over a rival promoter and one of his fighters that was attempting to participate tonight in an MMA match in Fayetteville, N.C., Don King had one last hurdle to clear: Florida state law required him to post a bond that Broward County Circuit Court Judge Marc H. Gold determined at $1 million. And he had to do it within two hours. With most businesses that would help him conduct a transaction of this magnitude not operating on a Saturday, King departed the Ft. Lauderdale courthouse and returned prior to the deadline to present the judge with two duffel bags containing $1 million in cash to fulfill his obligation to the court. (more…)

Ngoudjo has broken jaw/orbital bone

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Former two-time world title challenger Hermann Ngoudjo suffered more than just a defeat at the hands of Julio Diaz in Primm Nevada Friday night; the super-lightweight contender suffered both a broken jaw and broken orbital bone that required medical attention following the fight. “He didn’t complain at all during the fight and we’re not quite sure when it happened,” said trainer Marc Ramsay who saw his fighter go down to Diaz by scores of 97-93, 97-93, 99-91 on the scorecards. “It was only a half-hour after the fight that he started mentioning the pain and we had him checked out. The jaw is not that bad but the orbital is the more serious of the two.” It is possible that the fateful blow was delivered in the 9th, a left hand that sent Ngoudjo back into the ropes and had him hanging on for the only time in the fight.

More on Dzinziruk-Dawson

WBO junior middleweight champ Sergiy Dzinziruk made the fifth defense of his title look easy with a dominating 10th round TKO of previously once-beaten challenger Daniel Dawson in the main event of ShoBox: The New Generation Friday night on SHOWTIME from the Chumash Resort Casino in Santa Ynez, Calif. “My plan was to use the jab to make him tired and then go to the other punches,” Dzinziruk said. “We saw some tapes of him and knew the early rounds would be tough. Our plan was to apply more pressure in the later rounds and finish him. We’d had a long layoff and we wanted to take it easy in the beginning.” For more details and photos click here…

Champion retains WBO belt for 6th time

In a very one-sided bout, unbeaten WBO junior middleweight champion Sergiy Dzinziruk (36-0, 24 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over late sub Daniel Dawson (34-2, 24 KOs) on Friday night at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez, California. Making his US debut, southpaw Dzinziruk demonstrated a stiff jab that dictated the pace. He didn’t look like a fighter who had been out of action for 18 months, as he never let Dawson into the fight. The mismatch was waved off by referee Jose Cobian to save Dawson from further punishment at 2:12 of the tenth.
