Klitschko stops Solis

Photos: Sumio Yamada/WBC

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39 KOs) easily made the sixth defense of his current title reign against previously unbeaten mandatory challenger Odlanier Solis (17-1, 12 KOs). The bout was stopped due to an injury to Solis at 3:00 of the first round disappointing a sell-out crowd of 19,000+ at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany. After Solis had made a competitive showing for the better part of the round, Klitschko connected with a short right hand to the temple that wobbled the 2004 Cuban Olympic gold medalist, causing him to twist a knee and go down. He was given a count by referee Guadalupe Garcia and regained his feet with the help of the ropes but was unable to continue.

After the fight, Klitschko insisted he hit Solis with a clean punch, whereas Solis attributed the stoppage completely to the injury.

Tua goes the distance

Heavyweight David Tua (53-3-2, 43 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over journeyman Demetrice King (15-20, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at TelstraClear Pacific in Manukau City, New Zealand. The 38-year-old Tua was in command the whole way, but showed few signs of being the fearsome puncher who has scored 43 KOs in his 52 wins. King offered little resistance in dropping the fifth fight in his last six.

In other notable action, 44-year-old former WBA middleweight champion Maselino Masoe (30-6, 28 KOs) scored a fourth round KO over Kashif Mumtaz (7-23-1, 5 KOs).

Cunningham stays busy

By Lindy Lindell
Photos by Bob Ryder

The Royal Oak Music Hall, Royal Oak, MI: Weighing a career-low 158.5, Motown’s Darryl Cunningham easily prevailed over toughie Marcos Primera, now 20-24-2. It was practically a forgone conclusion that Cunningham, now 23-2, would beat Primera, the loser of nine straight and 14 of 15, but Primera hadn’t been stopped in those 15 bouts and so practically the only thing that Cunningham and his team could shoot for was to do damage, perhaps even stop the 45-fight vet. Why not? Coming off two good efforts in which he’d done damage over normally tough, veteran fighters, Cunningham’s arrow was pointed up. For more details and photos click here…

WBA #1-ranked welterweight contender Brad “King” Solomon (17-0, 7 KOs) built his undefeated record on an uncanny ability to change his style according to the opponent across from him. Last night at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood FL, Solomon defended his WBA International title against fellow counter punching opponent Demetrius “The Gladiator” Hopkins (30-2-1, 11 KOs).

During the promotion leading up to the bout, Hopkins called Solomon a “wanna-be Roy Jones”. Just prior to the fight, Solomon addressed it from his dressing room: “He wanna be his uncle (Bernard Hopkins) and you know back in the day, when they both was in they prime, Roy and Bernard, you know who won. So if I wanna be a whatever he wanna say. He trying to be his uncle, but he aint his uncle so I’m gonna show him better than I can tell him in the ring.” For more details and photos click here…

Kirkland crushes Berrio

By Rocco Morales at ringside

Unbeaten middleweight James Kirkland (27-0, 24 KOs) continued his reign of terror scoring a second round KO over Jhon Berrio (15-9, 11 KOs) on Friday night at the Hangar at OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California. Kirkland found himself, surprisingly, in a real fight in the first round and was even stunned a couple times by his Colombian opponent. However, after Kirkland landed a hard body shot a minute into the second round, the fight went out of Berrio and he took a knee from a mystery punch and was counted out by the referee. Time was 1:05. Matchmaker Eric Gomez of Golden Boy Promotions was upset with the effort, or lack thereof, by Berrio and instructed the California State Athletic Commission that he wished for them to withhold his purse pending further review. Kirkland will return to action for the third time in as many months on April 09th as he works his way back into title contention following his two year layoff.

In the main event, unbeaten lightweight Luis Ramos Jr. (18-0, 8 KOs) was fortunate to get a majority eight round decision over hard luck loser Jose Hernandez (10-5-1, 4 KOs). The taller Hernandez was able to control action for most of the fight with his jab and straight right crosses from the outside and was able to also score on the inside with hard uppercuts and hooks to the body of Ramos. For most of the fight, Ramos was trying to figure out a way to get on the inside but was unable to get past the accurate and hard punches of Hernandez. Hernandez stunned Ramos on many occasions during the fight and seemed the clear cut winner. While Ramos had his moments in the fight, he seemed accepting of his impending first defeat at the final bell. Fortunately for Ramos, however, the ringside judges had other ideas. Scores were 79-73, 77-75, 76-76. FightNews scored the bout 77-75 in favor of Hernandez. For more details and photos click here…
