Boxing Result

Pereyra beats Pedrero by DQ

Oscar Jesus Pereyra (21-1, 13 KOs) defeated Patricio Antonio Pedrero (21-3-1, 10 KOs) to win the vacant WBA International lightweight title by way of seventh round disqualification. The card took place at the Casino de Rosario, in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina. Mario Margossian promoted the show. Pereyra was the effective aggressor pressing the counter punching-minded Pedrero who at times would stop and exchange with Pereyra. This would be costly as Pereyra would drop Pedrero in rounds four and six with Pedrero easily beating the count each time. In round seven Pedrero caught Pereya with a combo and the two ended up in a clinch. The referee then went in to separate them. Pedrero, with the referee in between them continued to hit Pereyra with a series of punches. One this punches was an uppercut that sent Pereyra crashing to the canvas and unable to continue. The referee then disqualfied Pedrero. Pedrero was furious and stormed out of the ring.

Martinez defeats Pavlik

Emily Harney

By Rick Scharmberg and Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

WBC jr middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (45-2-2, 23 KOs) moved up in weight to dethrone WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (36-2, 32 KOs) by twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Martinez was sharp and quick, cutting Pavlik over the left eye and outboxing Pavlik over the first four rounds. Pavlik began to connect with right hands in round five and his power advantage began to tell. Pavlik won the middle rounds scoring a flash knockdown against an off balance Martinez in round seven. Martinez turned the fight around in round nine, busting up Pavlik’s right eye and dominated rounds ten and eleven. Pavlik’s face was a bloody mess when the bout ended. Scores were 115-111, 116-111, 115-112. There was a rematch clause in the contract so expect to see Martinez-Pavlik II coming soon. For more details and photos click here…

Bute TKOs Miranda in 3rd

Herby Whyne

By Dave Spencer at ringside

Lucian Bute (26-0, 21 KOs) served notice that he considers himself the best there is at 168 pounds Saturday as he put on another sensational performance in front of 13,862 rabid fans at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Bute destroyed Columbian born Edison Miranda (33-5, 29 KOs), knocking out the heavy fisted contender at 1:22 of round three with an uppercut that served as the earliest exit to date for Miranda. “I am the best there is at 168 pounds and I welcome all challengers,” said Bute moments after the fight, referring principally to Bernard Hopkins or anybody who wanted to challenge him for his IBF world title. The win was the 5th defense for the Romanian-born Bute. For more details and photos click here…

Zbik, Stieglitz retain titles

Eroll Popova

By Karl Freitag

In a highly charged rematch, WBC interim middleweight world champion Sebastian Zbik (29-0, 10 KOs) won a clear twelve round unanimous decision over WBC #2 rated Domenico Spada (30-3, 15 KOs) on Saturday night at the Bordelandhalle in Magdeburg, Germany. This time, Zbik was too mobile, too fast and too well schooled for the wild and aggressive Spada. The champion was cut over the left eye and on the bridge of the nose by head clashes in round four (Spada was deducted a point under WBC rules). However, Spada slowed down in the second half of the fight and Zbik dominated down the stretch to win 117-110, 116-111, 116-111. All questions left after the first Zbik-Spada fight were answered tonight.

Eroll Popova

WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (38-2, 23 KOs) retained his world title with a hard fought twelve round unanimous decision over the previously unbeaten and very game WBO #2 rated Eduard “Eddy” Gutknecht (18-1, 7 KOs). After a rousing start, Stieglitz amped up the pressure and Gutknecht responded, resulting in some excellent exchanges. As the bout progressed, however, the champion’s pressure began to take its toll as Stieglitz forged ahead, although the challenger had his moments. Both were still giving their all in the championship rounds with Stieglitz trying hard for the late KO. In the end, Stieglitz prevailed by scores of 119-108, 117-111, 117-110. Great fight!

St-Juste aims to impress

Hopes to avoid Miranda rights

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

It costs Renan St-Juste (20-1-1 13KO) a lot every time he takes on a fight, but the powerful middleweight hopes the dividends are huge Saturday as he returns to the ring in the first time in over a year against the upset minded Dionisio Miranda (20-5-2 18KO) at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The hammer fisted southpaw who owns his own gym just east of Montreal is forced to find extra help to run things in the gym when he is training for a fight, but as the soon to be 38-year-old closes in a title shot or a big money fight, he knows the clock is ticking. “I don’t know exactly where a win will put me,” said the WBA #8 contender, “But no more stupid fights. If they have no plans for me I’ll walk and retire. I want them to give me something. Everyone has had a chance, I just want them to give me mine.” (More)

Stieglitz a falcon in the ring

Eroll Popova/SES Boxing

Promoter Ulf Steinforth sees WBO world champion Robert Stieglitz (37-2, 23 KOs) as a clear favorite in Saturday’s world title defense against unbeaten Universum boxer Eduard Gutknecht (18-0, 7 KOs). “Robert has been with me for nearly ten years and his development parallels that of our SES boxing stable. Since our inception 10 years ago, we have worked continuously to advance. Four world champions speak for themselves. Robert Stieglitz came to me as a ‘young bird’ with good abilities and with hard work, willingness to learn and great fights he’s won the world championship. Now he’s my stable’s falcon – strong, fast, patiently waiting and he punches at just the right moment. A falcon in the ring, and once he catches his prey he doesn’t let go. He’ll prove this against Gutknecht and retain his championship belt in his second title defense!” The bout takes place Saturday at the famous Bordelandhalle Hall in Magdeburg, where hometown favorite Stieglitz has fought many times before. It will be the seventh time two Germans have fought each other for a world title.

Froch-Kessler still on

Icelandic volcano won't KO Super Six clash

Kalle Sauerland has confirmed that the Super Six World Boxing Classic Clash between WBC Super-Middleweight Champion Carl Froch and Danish hero Mikkel Kessler (April 24) will go ahead as planned despite multiple airspace closures throughout Europe. The “Cobra” was scheduled to fly from Great Britain to Denmark tomorrow, but with most of the European airports shut down until further notice, he might be forced to make different arrangements. “We will make sure the Cobra gets to Herning in good time to fight Mikkel,” Kesslers promoter Kalle Sauerland said. “The Volcano cannot serve as an excuse for Froch not to show up. Nothing can prevent the biggest boxing fight in Danish history from happening. We are already looking into different ways of transportation. Should need be, we will fly Froch in by helicopter for Mikkel to knock him out. He can then take the boat back home – once Mikkel is done with him, I doubt he will be allowed on a normal plane anyway.” (more…)
