Concepcion cruises past N. Narvaez

Former WBA interim flyweight champion Luis “Nica” Concepcion (29-3, 21 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Nestor Narvaez (19-2-2, 9 KOs) on Saturday night in a bout for the WBC silver flyweight belt at the Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City. “Nica” mostly punished Narvaez, brother of WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez, dropping him in round five with a barrage of punches. Concepcion was deducted a point in round eight for a borderline low blow. The action subsided significantly over the last half of the fight. Scores were 118-108, 118-108, 118-109.

UFC 163 main results: Aldo stops the Korean Zombie

Davis defeats the Dragon in co-main

It likely wasn’t the way UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo expected he would win his fifth title defense Saturday night, but the hometown favorite will take it, as he capped off a dominant performance in the UFC 163 main event at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro with a fourth round stoppage of Chan Sung Jung that was aided by a shoulder injury suffered by “The Korean Zombie.”

With the win, Aldo improves to 23-1; Jung falls to 13-4 . . . Click here for more on UFC.com

In a rematch, WBC female super flyweight champion Zulina “La Loba” Munoz (38-1-2, 26 KOs) scored an explosive first round KO against Maribel “La Pantera” Ramirez (8-6-2, 3 KOs) on Saturday night at the Agustin Millan Gymnasium in Toluca, Mexico. Making the third defense of the title she took against Ramirez in 2012, Munoz sent Ramirez to the deck with a left to the jaw that ended the fight after just 1:49.

In the co-feature, unbeaten middleweight Bruno “Tiburon” Sandoval (15-0, 13 KOs) scores a sixth round KO over Gustavo “Vitaminas” Garibay (9-6, 5 KOs).

Stevens demolishes Roman; bring on Golovkin

Adamek schools Guinn; Mchunu dominates Chambers

By Mark Vaz at ringside

Middleweight contender Curtis “Showtime” Stevens (25-3, 18 KOs) needed just 2:26 to annihilate Saul Roman (37-10, 31 KOs) in round one on Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. Stevenson rushed Roman and dropped him with a left hook. Roman survived the initial onslaught but Stevens then laid him out with another left hook. Stevens had let it be known before the fight that he wants to challenge WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and after this performance why not? The Golovkin camp has expressed interest in doing a Golovkin-Stevens fight in November in New York City.

Heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek (49-2, 29 KOs) gave his former sparring partner Dominick Guinn (34-10-1, 23 KOs) a boxing demonstration en route to a one-sided ten round unanimous decision. Guinn had his best moments in round one, but it was all downhill from there as Adamek took over the fight from round two peppering Guinn with combinations. Guinn was cut over the right eye by an unintentional head clash in round three and the rest of the bout resembled a sparring session as Adamek cruised to a 98-92, 99-91, 99-91 win.

The move of former heavyweight title challenger “Fast” Eddie Chambers (36-4, 18 KOs) to cruiserweight was a total disaster. WBC #7 rated Thadiso “The Rock” Mchunu (14-1, 9 KOs) completely dominated Chambers winning a ten round a unanimous decision by lopsided scores of 97-93, 99-91, 99-91. It was a tactical match with both fighters waiting for the other to lead, but southpaw Mchunu earned the win by simply staying busier. Chambers spent most the fight posing rather than punching and the punches he did throw hit mostly air. (more…)

Results from Germany

IBO intercontinental welterweight titleholder Rico Muller (15-1-1, 10 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over late sub Ramhadani Shauri (16-3-1, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Open-Air BUGA Familiengarten in Eberswalde, Germany. Scores were 118-110, 116-112, 115-113 for the hometown favorite. 115-113 seemed about right.

Jr middleweight Robert Maess (10-0, 10 KOs) scored a seventh round KO over Issa El Sleiman (6-0-1, 5 KOs) to claim the German light middleweight belt. Maess dropped El Sleiman in round six and finished him with a hard knockdown in round seven.

Female welterweights Jennifer Retzke (12-1-1, 9 KOs) and Florence Muthoni (8-2-1, 3 KOs) battled to a ten draw in a bout for the vacant IBO female belt. Scores were 95-95, 95-95 and 96-94 “for the blue corner.”

Garza overwhelms Fisher

By Lindy Lindell

After a near three-month drought, boxing returned to the Motor City with a nine-bout card at the Club Fantasy, formerly Club International, in the Southwest section of Detroit, as local favorite Gabriel “Bebe” Garza scored his first knockout in five pro fights, overwhelming a hapless, pro-debuting Charles Fisher.

A good venue for what matched the card itself: the grittiness of club boxing in a bankrupt city that reminded one of some of the early scenes of Cinderella Man, the Depression-era flick that featured the oft-losing Jim Braddock’s rise from, well, tattered rags to Championship Glory. (more…)

Sockwell and Gavern victorious in Scranton, PA

By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Boxing seems to be on the resurgence again in Scranton, Pennsylvania as a near capacity crowd filled the Scranton Hilton on Friday night to witness a competitive Pro-Am card promoted by Chris Coyne’s Northeast Boxing Promotions. In the main event of the five bout professional portion of the card, rising middleweight RJ “Black Gold” Sockwell upped his record to 6-2-1, 4 KOs, with a workmanlike six round unanimous decision victory over Antonio Liles (1-2, 1KO). In the six round co-feature of the evening, heavyweight Jason “The Sensation” Gavern (22-15-4, 11 KOs) bounced back onto the winning side of the ledger with a stirring first round stoppage of Robert Dunton (9-9-1, 5 KOs).

2nd largest U.S. cable provider drops Showtime

CBS and Showtime were dropped on Friday by Time Warner Cable, the nation’s second largest cable TV provider serving significant portions of New York City, Los Angeles and Dallas, due a dispute over license fees. In response, cbs.com has blocked the online streaming of shows to Time Warner Cable broadband customers.

In a statement, Showtime stated “We gave Time Warner Cable the opportunity to keep SHOWTIME on the air even if an agreement could not be achieved. Time Warner Cable declined this offer. We take pride in the fact that our networks have never gone dark until now and that our subscribers have never been deprived of their programming. Time Warner Cable, on the other hand, has taken nearly 50 channels off the air in the last five years in disputes like the one we are having right now.”

Time Warner Cable’s statement reads: “TWC regrets being forced into this position by CBS, but is prepared to stand by their customers and do what it takes to fight programmer demands for outrageous increases.”

According to reports, further negotiations are expected to last anywhere from ten days to six weeks. The next boxing telecast on Showtime is Deontay Wilder vs. Sergei Liakhovich on August 9, followed by Abner Mares vs. Jhonny Gonzalez on August 24 and Seth Mitchell vs. Chris Arreola on September 6. It’s even possible that the September 14 Floyd Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez show could be affected if this dispute isn’t resolved. Stay tuned.

David Haye a considerable betting favourite over Tyson Fury – still 8 weeks to go until British heavyweight battle

By James Slater

Eight weeks today, British boxing fans will be filing into what will be a sold-out Manchester Arena, as rival heavyweights David Haye and Tyson Fury settle their differences in one of the biggest fights to have taken place in Britain in years. Haye says he will win and then get a rematch with a Klitschko, while unbeaten Fury believes he will “retire” Haye and get the Klitschko shot himself. According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, Haye, the former WBA heavyweight champ and cruiserweight champ, will get the job done.

Haye, 26-2(24) is currently a 2/7 betting favourite. Fury, 21-0(15) is currently listed at 11/4. A draw can be betted on at 33/1. As to how the winning man will prevail, Ladbrokes have Haye at 1/2 to win by KO, TKO or DQ. While Fury is listed at 4/1 to win by KO, TKO or DQ. Those few fans who think the fight will somehow go the distance can currently get a price of 11/4 for a decision.

Khan: Alexander is coming up with excuses

“We are looking at December 7 for my next fight and looking at opponents,” former world champion Amir Khan told Sky Sports. “I have tried to get Devon Alexander. It was looking promising. He said he wanted to fight at the start and now it slowly seems that he is not 100 per cent sure about it, coming up with excuses. Even if it’s not in Dubai, I will fight him in America, I will fight him wherever…it’s all about moving to that big fight against Floyd Mayweather. Hopefully getting this win against Alexander will get me into that fight.”

Cleverly to Kovalev: All I say is bring it on

WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly thanked the thousands of fans who turned-out to see him work out at a blistering hot Cardiff city centre day and promised to beat the Russian destroyer Sergey Kovalev on August 17th at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena. With the sun beating down, Cleverly showed his skill in a specially constructed ring on Queen Street that thrilled the crowd ahead of his showdown with the terrifying challenger who has knockout all but two of his 22 opponents.

“The pressure is on me,” stated Cleverly. “I’m defending my world title in my home city, I’m going in against a challenger who’s unbeaten and who nobody wanted to face, who’s wiped-out virtually everybody he’s fought and will be intent on taking my head off. All I say is bring it on, I perform best when the heat is on and it doesn’t get any hotter than this.”

None of the bouts on tonight NBC Sports Network triple-header can be classified as “pick ‘em” fights, but all have compelling story lines nevertheless. The main event features a middleweight who is openly campaigning to land a fight with the much feared WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, while the support bouts include a former light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion who is looking for a title in the heavyweight division, and a former heavyweight title challenger testing the waters at cruiserweight.

In the main event, middleweight contender Curtis “Showtime” Stevens (24-3, 17 KOs) is a solid -550 favorite to defeat Saul Roman (37-9, 31 KOs) tonight at the Mohegan Sun. Roman backers can get +350. Stevens has let it be known that he wants to challenge Golovkin and the Golovkin camp is open to it. An impressive performance by Stevens tonight would greatly help his cause. (more…)

Robinson stops Nahr in 7; Neequaye decisions Spivey

“The New” Ray Robinson (17-2, 7 KOs) won the vacant USBA welterweight title with an electrifying stoppage of Ray “The Emperor” Nahr (26-3, 21 KOs) at 2:33 of the seventh round of the scheduled twelve round bout at the Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, Delaware. Robinson applied a brutal body attack before dropping Nahr twice in the seventh. Nahr got up, but Robinson unloaded a series of unanswered power shots on Nahr along the ropes, forcing referee Malik Waleed to stop the bout.

In the co-feature, Samuel “Unbelievable” Kotey Neequaye (21-0, 15 KOs) won the NABA lightweight title with a brutal ten round unanimous decision over defending champ “Dangerous” Dorin Spivey (42-7, 30 KOs). The bout was a war from the opening bell, with Neequaye landing a little bit more each round, and landing the more telling shots. Spivey was down briefly from a left early in round five, but he may have been off balance. The scores were 98-91, 97-92, and 96-93 in favor of Kotey Neequaye.

An estimated crowd of 1,500 witnessed the first-ever event at the venue, which is located on the campus of the University of Delaware.

Erdei willing to come down to 168 to face Ward

With Andre Ward looking for an opponent for his first fight in over a year, former light heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion Zsolt Erdei (33-1, 18 KOs) is offering to come down to super middleweight to take the fight.

“When I decided to sign with Lou DiBella and fight in America, it was for me to face DBE the best boxers in the world. Ward is considered to be the best boxer in the world above the middleweight division and he is a great champion. I respect his skills very much, but I know that I have what it takes to get the job done and shock the world. A win over Ward makes me a superstar in America and that is my ultimate goal,” said the 39-year-old Erdei who lost for the first time in his pro career by split decision to Denis Grachev in March.
