Future Hall of Famer Ricky Hatton made his debut as a promoter in Australia when Hatton Promotions co-promoted a show with Right Cross Entertainment at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane, Queensland on Saturday that featured two of Australia’s London Olympic representatives Damien Hooper and Cameron Hammond.
Light heavyweight Damien Hooper showed his class as he took veteran Garth Murray to school connecting with jarring left jabs and heavy right hands that forced the referee to stop the one sided fight in round five. Ricky Hatton was impressed. “His potential is limitless,” said Hatton. “He could be as great as other Aussie heroes such as Jeff Fenech and Kostya Tszyu.”
Hooper’s London Olympic teammate Cameron Hammond raced away to his second professional victory, easily outpointing Kiwi light middleweight Daniel Roy Maxwell by scores of 60-54, 60-54, 60-54. “It was a tough six rounds,” the 154 pound Hammond said. “He was a brave bloke. I hit him with some great shots but he took them well.” (more…)

Tyson Fury: “I was just hunting him down like a lion on a deer. I didn’t come here to play any games. I wanted him to get back up so I could hit him again. It was just a matter of time until I got him out of there.”
Steve Cunningham: “He’s a good fighter. His size is his advantage. He used his size. He went and took it to the alleyway. I’m not angry. I mean the guy’s friggin 6’9″. He’s a giant.”
Unbeaten heavyweight Artur Szpilka (14-0, 11 KOs) scored an unsatisfying first round TKO over formerly world ranked Taras Bidenko (28-6, 12 KOs) on Saturday night in Rzeszow, Poland. Bidenko quit after round one citing a knee injury.

In his first fight since losing his WBA flyweight title against Brian Viloria last November, Hernan “Tyson” Marquez (36-3, 27 KOs) scored an explosive third round KO over Edgar ¨Power¨ Jíménez on Friday night at the Gimnasio del Estado in Hermosillo, Mexico. A powerful left cross ended matters. Time was 1:44.
“We’re back!” said Marquez. “This is what we wanted so we prepared for two months. I have no doubt that I’ll be world champion again. I know that my promoter Zanfer will soon have me in the running to go for a world title. I’m immediately going back to the gym to get ready to go against Viloria, Estrada, whoever…I’m very satisfied and motivated. Thank you all for standing by me and believing in me. I’m back with more desire than ever. I’ve been told that it’s almost a fact that on June 1 we are in the ring again.” photos

Walsh retains his his WBO European lightweight title.

Unbeaten heavyweight Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KOs) recovered from a second round knockdown to knock out Steve Cuningham (25-6, 12 KOs) in round seven on Saturday in “The Theater” of Madison Square Garden in New York City. Cunningham dropped Fury with a huge overhand right in round two. Fury was also deducted a point in round five for headbutting by referee Eddie Cotton, however Fury’s 44lb weight advantage began taking its toll. He began to outmuscle and break down Cunningham, finally floored him for the count with a right hand. Time was 2:55.
At the time of the knockout, Cunningham was up 57-55 on two judges’ cards. The third judge had it tied 56-56.
