World middleweight contender Sam Soliman (37-11, 15 KOs) was impressive in stopping Australian super middleweight champion Les Piper (10-3-3, 2 KOs) in seven rounds on Sunday at the Penisula, Docklands, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Soliman controlled the action over his aggressive opponent by outworking him most of the rounds. In round seven Piper was dropped twice by hard body shots at which point referee Ignatius Missailidis crowned the Melbourne boxer. IBF #14 Soliman targeted the best middleweights in the world. “I am after the IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester who I regard as a good champion but he does not have the skills or the experience against the top level middleweights to defeat me. I am prepared to go fight him in Germany and I will beat him easy.”

In the main supporting bout. WBO #14 140-pounder Lance Gostelow (20-2, 14 KOs) outscored Fatai Onikeke (23-4, 20 KOs) over twelve rounds. Scores were 120-108, 119-109, 120-108. Onikeke was the aggressor but he was outworked by Gostelow who connected with effective combinations boxing on the backmove. Former IBF jr lightweight champion Barry Michael said. “Lance Gostelow is the best boxer in Australia in my opinion.”

In a super middleweight six-rounder, formerly world rated Daniel “Porky” Lovett (18-4, 10 KOs) scored a split decision over Kashif Mumtaz (5-11-1, 4 KOs) in a crowd pleaser.

Senchenko schools Sasaki

By Alexey Sukachev

Vyacheslav Senchenko (30-0, 20 KOs) retained his WBA welterweight title with a lopsided unanimous decision over WBA #15 Japanese Motoki Sasaki (32-8-1, 20 KOs) three hours ago at Druzhba Palace of Sports in Donetsk, Ukraine. Senchenko controlled the action till the sixth round, when Sasaki cut his right eyebrow with an intentional headbutt. The Japanese fighter was deducted two points and the cut hadn’t helped him much either, as Senchenko continued to dominate his shorter opponent till the final bell yet without an earlier ease. Scores were 119-107 (thrice) for the local hero. Shane Mosley is widely recognized as the only meaningful WBA champion in this weight class.

EBU featherweight champion Oleg Yefimovich (now 17-1, 11 KOs) continued his reign of terror in Europe by becoming only the second fighter to stop durable Brit Esham Pickering (34-9, 13 KOs) inside the distance. The former world title challenger was down twice after left hands in round two and was finally knocked out by highly ranked (WBO #7, IBF #9, WBC #10 and WBA #11) Yefimovich in the third after a powerful left hook.

Decarie KOs Cauthen

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada at ringside

Antonin Decarie left things literally to the last second and scored a knockout of Terrence Cauthen (33-6 9KO) at 2:59 of the 10th and final round. The Montreal welterweight who moves 23-0 with his 7th stoppage was the aggressor on the afternoon and went after his New Jersey opponent who was credited by at least one judge of winning the rounds four thru seven. Come round eight though, Cauthen who took the fight on less than a week’s notice seemed to have hit a wall and had noticeably dropped his hands. Decarie took full advantage and landed a right with everything on it that took the southpaw down to the canvas for a count of eight. “The ninth round I tried to finish him but I was just too wide with my shots, said Decarie after the fight. “The 10th round though I just settled down and managed to catch him.” Cauthen ate a right to the body that left him gasping for air and referee Michael Griffin calling it off with the fighter still wincing and quickly making his way to a waiting stool.

Make it 18 for 18 as middleweight knockout sensation David Lemieux destroyed former ‘Contender’ series star Donnie McCrary (24-10-2 13KO) at 2:40 of the opening round. After exchanging combinations in the middle of the ring, McCrary walked straight back with his hands down and was brutalized by a Lemieux right hand, dropping the Missouri hard to the canvas in a crumpled heap. McCrary managed to beat the count, but Lemieux managed a right to the body and followed it immediately with another to the head which had McCrary down and out and the fight being called immediately.

Callist: Mosquera not ready yet

Veteran Panamanian fighter Miguel Callist visited the Pedro Alcazar Gym in Panama to give some advice to his unbeaten friend Alberto Mosquera, who was mentioned as a possible opponent for WBA interim super lightweight champion Marcos Maidana. “You took the correct decision on rejecting the offer,” Callist said, “Maidana is stronger than many people imagine. When you hit him with a very good punch and you think he is really hurt, then he becomes stronger.” Callist faced Maidana in Argentina in December 2006, losing by TKO in the third round of a short but exciting battle. “I know you have very good boxing skills as I do, but you need to wait for a better moment. Maidana is in his prime and you still can get more experience and very good physical condition,” Callist added. “I was very well prepared, had a world of experience and he beat me in three rounds. With your technical skills you may beat him…but not now.” Mosquera´s record is ten wins, no losses and a no contest.

Uchiyama, Kono victorious

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten WBC#2/WBA#4 super-feather champ Takashi Uchiyama (13-0, 10 KOs), 130, kept his OPBF belt as he pummeled OPBF#1 Philippine titlist Aaron Melgarejo (17-7-1, 6 KOs), 130, into submission at 1:01 of the seventh round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Uchiyama, formerly four-time national amateur champ, registered his fifth defense of the regional belt when his lopsided assault caused the loser’s cornerman to toss in the towel for surrender. Melgarejo positively threw solid left-right combinations, almost all of which were averted by the champ’s excellent defensive skills. Uchiyama, one of the brightest prospects here, often displayed well-timed counters and wicked body shots that visibly weakened the game challenger.

In a companion OPBF title go, WBA#3/WBC#5 super-fly Kohei Kono (24-4, 8 KOs), 114.75, also retained his belt as he surprisingly hit the deck in the first, but dropped back OPBF#1 Marvin Tampus (21-9-2, 13 KOs), 114.75, in the final session, winning a unanimous nod (116-111 twice and 116-110) over twelve. Kono had previously failed to wrest the WBA 115-pound belt from compatriot and current champ Nobuo Nashiro via split duke in September last year, and regained his OPBF throne by defeating Filipino ruler Daniel Ferreras on points this May.

Three excellent matchups on tonight’s edition of ShoBox: The New Generation (live on SHOWTIME at 11PM ET/PT). In the main event, WBC #6 super middleweight contender Allan Green (28-1, 20 KOs) takes on unbeaten southpaw Tarvis Simms (25-0-1 11 KOs) at the First Council Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma.

Green has previously fought lefthanders three times in his career, all victories. “And they were all on short notice too,” he said. Simms, who has long sought a major fight, got the opportunity when Green’s original foe Victor Oganov was injured less then two weeks before the fight. “I know people aren’t picking me to win,” said Simms, “but that’s why I’m going to go out there and shock the world.”

In the second televised fight of the night, welterweight Antwone Smith (16-1-1, 8 KOs) takes on unbeaten Henry Crawford (22-0-1, 9 KOs) in a ten-rounder battle between two of the division’s brightest prospects. The TV opener features unbeaten Marcus “Too Much” Johnson (17-0, 14 KOs) against Victor Villereal (8-3-2, 4 KOs) in an eight-round super middleweight affair.
