Lefele retains SA title

By Ron Jackson

Tshepo Lefele retained his South African mini flyweight title when he knocked out Mawanda Sineko in the sixth round at the Mdantsane Indoor Centre near East London on Friday night. Lefele (16-4; 10) who was making the second defence of his title was outboxed by Sineko (20-10-2; 7) through the first four rounds, but picked up the pace going into the fifth round. Early in the sixth Lefele (46.70 kg) stunned Sineko (47.45 kg) with a right to the head and soon afterwards dropped him flat on his back with a right to the jaw where he was counted out by referee Allen Matakane at 2 minutes 35 seconds into the round.

Results from Houston

By Peter Lim

Had there been a Knockout of the Evening award, it would have been shared by bantamweight Miguel Flores and cruiserweight Craig Baker at the Houston Hobby Marriot Hotel. Flores, 17, raised his record to 3-0 (3 KOs), by deflating Edson Renteria, 0-2, for the full count with a picturesque triple left hook to the ribcage midway through the first round. Baker, 9-0 (8 KOs), torched Gabe Hayes, 1-2 (1 KO), dropping him twice with crushing overhand rights en route to a first round stoppage. In a cross-town heavyweight battle, Eugene Hill, 19-1 (15 KOs) unanimously outpointed Robbie McClimans, 7-6-2 (2 KOs), over eight hard-fought, albeit sloppy, rounds that saw as much clinching and leaning as there was boxing. In other bouts, junior welterweights Bruentre Miller, 3-1 (3 KOs) and Chris Hernandez, 3-2 (3 KOs), traded three knockdowns apiece before Hernandez was counted out in the second round. Jesus “Torrito” Rodarte, 5-0 (2 KOs), scored a four-round shutout over Miguel Delgado, 3-15-1 (3 KOs), in a lightweight bout. The fights were staged by Chris Henard Promotions.

Denkaosen vs ex-champ Sakata

By Joe Koizumi

WBA flyweight champ Denkaosen Kaowichit (48-1-1, 20 KOs), Thailand, will give a return to ex-titlist Takefumi Sakata (35-5-2, 16 KOs), Japan, in Tokyo on December 31. It was announced by Sakata’s promoter/manager Keiichiro Kanehira of Kyoei Promotions. It is a highly anticipated rematch, as the hard-hitting Thailander dethroned Sakata by a pulverizing one-punch knockout in the second round on the same day of the previous year. Sakata has been very loyal to the WBA, having fought just for the organization’s 112-pound belt without aiming at any other boxing body’s throne. (more…)

Welterweight Freddy “El Riel” Hernandez (26-1, 18 KOs) outworked Damian “Devo” Frias (16-2, 7 KOs) over ten workmanlike rounds on Friday night at the Laredo Entertainment Center in Laredo, Texas. Hernandez did some good bodywork, but never really opened up. Frias’ best round was the tenth, but it was too little too late. Scores were 98-92 on all cards.

Truax to face Daniels

Unbeaten Super Middleweight “Golden” Caleb Truax will vie for his first title on November 20 against former world champion Carl Daniels in the main event at the St. Paul Armory. Truax (13-0, 9 KOs), has been impressive thus far during his young career. The Osseo, MN native stopped five of his last six opponents, including a TKO over veteran Patrick Perez in July. Daniels (50-18-1, 32 KOs), of St. Louis, MO, is a former WBA junior middleweight champion and fought the likes of Bernard Hopkins, Julio Cesar Green, Julio Cesar, Laurent Boudouani and Chad Dawson. The 69 fight veteran is Truax’ most experienced foe to date, although Daniels has lost 14 of his last 15. (more…)

Dominating IBF bantamweight champion Joseph King Kong Agbeko and No. 1-Ranked mandatory challenger Yonnhy “El Colombiano” Perez participated in a frightful media workout at Perez’s gym in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., just nine days before their crucial world title fight on Halloween, Saturday, Oct. 31, LIVE on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT) in the first boxing match at Treasure Island Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
