Results from Tijuana

Last night Mayen Promotions opened up its 2014 season with their first show of the year at a new venue and on a new night. Held on Wednesdays and at the Las Pulgas nightclub for the last twenty-four months, promoter Guillermo Mayen earlier this year closed a deal with Zanfer Promotions to move to Fridays and to what is quickly becoming the new home for Tijuana boxing, the Tecate Box Tour tent located in the parking lot of the historic Caliente Racetrack in the heart of the city. The move doesn’t come with its perks with one being that the majority of the fights card will be taped for a later broadcast on Azteca America. Mayen, one of the biggest supporters of female boxing in Mexico, presented his annual “Reyes y Reinas (Kings and Queens” fight card in which the most of the night is split between male and female bouts with this edition’s as last year’s, the women stole the show.

In the main event, the popular and charismatic Tijuana flyweight Kenia Enriquez (9-0, 5K0s) proved why she is quickly climbing the world rankings since her debut in 2012 as she remained undefeated by quickly annihilating the previously undefeated Selene Lopez (3-1-3, 1KO) of the Mexican boxing hotbed Los Mochis, Mexico, in just over a minute of the first round of a scheduled for six. Lopez, the sister of Kenia’s last opponent Kareli, was coming into Tijuana as her hometown’s 2013 fighter of the year while Enriquez, ranked as the #7 flyweight in the world by the WBC, had taken a lopsided unanimous decision over Kareli Lopez last October.

Macklin: I can’t see Adama making it past round 7 or 8

Fight fans in 100+ countries (not including the USA) will get a chance to assess whether WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is the most explosive puncher presently active in boxing – as many experts are suggesting – when he defends his world titles this evening at the Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo. “GGG” has knocked-out 25 of his 28 pro opponents – including each of his last 15 – inside the scheduled distance and is hoping to extend the streak against 85:1 underdog Osumanu Adama (22-3, 16 KOs).

One man brutally aware of the carnage Golovkin is capable of wreaking is Birmingham’s Matt Macklin who was punctured by a crippling body shot from Golovkin in round three of his world title crack last June. Boxing writer Glynn Evans called the triple world title challenger at his Marbella training base to get the inside skinny on ‘GGG’ and analyze how Saturday’s championship action might pan out.

Golovkin-Adama to be telecast in over 100 countries, but the USA isn’t one of them

By Karl Freitag

Saturday’s big Gennady Golovkin-Osumanu Adama WBA/IBO world middleweight championship fight in Monte Carlo will be shown in over 100 countries, it was announced Friday by the promoters of Monte Carlo Boxing Bonanza. Boxing fans in Australia, Austria, the Baltic States, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, France/Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Latin America, the Middle East, Poland, Russia, Scandinavia, Slovakia, South Africa, Switzerland, Spain, Ukraine and the United Kingdom, can all see the fight, but unless something changes very quickly, American fight fans will be left out in the cold.

HBO, the network that has Golovkin under contract, opted to show another replay of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” rather than pick up the live international feed of Golovkin-Adama. Considering that Golovkin’s most recent fight against Curtis Stevens was HBO’s third highest rated boxing match for 2013 averaging 1.4 million viewers, it’s hard to fathom why the network would reject this chance to showcase one of its biggest stars.
