Results from Haiti

Local Haitian idol WBA#7 Evens Pierre (26-1, 17 KOs) retained his WBA Fedelatin lightweight title by winning a near shutout decision over game but outclassed Tomas Mendez (21-7, 14 KOs) of the Dominican Republic. Pierre battered Mendez throughout the scheduled eleven rounds, but the gritty Dominican challenger fought until the final bell. Pierre gave his local fans much to cheer about with his speed, bolo punches and showmanship that just befuddled his opponent.

Pierre’s promoter Jacques Deschamps said “I am happy with Evens’ performance, combining skill and agression. We will be looking for Evens to challenge for a world title shot this year and hopefully it could be held in Haiti which would be a first for the country.”

A ten second bell count was done in honor of Gilberto Mendoza Senior. (more…)

Unbeaten IBF heavyweight champion Charles Martin (23-0-1, 21 KOs) will be about a 5:1 underdog when he defends his title against undefeated British Olympic hero Anthony Joshua (15-0, 15 KOs) in what is sure to be a hostile O2 Arena in London.

“I don’t know how the fans will react to me knocking him out,” says Martin, “but that’s what is going to happen. I don’t know how the fans in London will react, but I can only be myself. I’m world champion, but a lot of people don’t know me. After I knock him out we’ll see where that goes.

“I’m not going to go in there respecting anybody’s power. He’s going to have to respect me and my power and deal with me and my tools. I don’t care what he’s bringing to the table…I don’t think about where he’s been. All I care about is where he’s going. I don’t care if he’s been in deep water before, or how many rounds he’s been. I want him to remember the word ‘timber’ because I’m going to make his ass hit that canvas real hard.”

Showtime will televise live in the USA.

By Karl Freitag

WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (44-4, 29 KOs) has been a world champion off and on for the better part of the last decade. Although he’ll be a slight underdog tonight, rather than a changing of the guard, the 36-year-old German sees his fight against unbeaten 24-year-old mandatory challenger Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez as an opportunity.

“I’ve [still] got goals in my career,” said Abraham this week. “One goal is the victory against Ramirez. I’ll be the first German to win a world championship fight here [in Las Vegas]. After this, I’d like more big fights in the United States. Ramirez is my door opener. He will not get my belt. This will be my best fight!”

Abraham-Ramirez will be the co-feature on tonight’s Pacquiao-Bradley PPV telecast at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Trojanowski stops Cuenca again

In a rematch, unbeaten IBF jr welterweight champion Edward Trojanowski (24-0, 21 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over former champion Cesar Cuenca (48-2, 2 KOs) on Friday night at the Krylia Sovetov in Moscow, Russia. Nifty southpaw Cuenca boxed well early, but Trojanowski bloodied Cuenca’s nose in round three and dropped him in round four. He battered Cuenca to the deck again in round six. Cuenca’s corner finally called off the beating during a pause in the action in round seven. Time was 2:14. After opening his career with 48 straight wins, Cuenca now has two straight losses, both to Trojanowski.

In the co-feature, unbeaten heavyweight Sergey Kuzmin (7-0, 4 KOs) scored a second round TKO over “The Sandman” Konstantin Airich (23-16-2, 18 KOs). Kuzman dropped Airich in round two and the bout was waved off shortly after. Time was 2:17.

Carl Frampton stripped of WBA 122lb title

On January 7, 2016, the WBA Championships Committee issued Resolution No. 201601070612 clarifying the status of the super bantamweight division. The Resolution named Guillermo Rigondeaux as Champion in Recess and authorized WBA champion Scott Quigg to participate in a unification bout with IBF champion Carl Frampton via special permit conditioned on the winner facing Rigondeaux as the next opponent. The Resolution was provided to Frampton’s representatives the following day.

On February 27, 2016, at Manchester Arena in Manchester, Lancashire, United Kingdom, Frampton defeated Quigg via split decision to become the WBA and IBF Unified champion of the division.

In March 2016, several press releases announced that Frampton did not intend to face Rigondeaux in his next bout.
