zoda300
Indonesian teenage sensation Iwan Zoda (9-1, 8 KOs) continues to impress.

The bout took place in Borneo, Indonesia in the city of Pontianak.

The Hungarian visitor edged the cautious first round on two judges’ cards. Zoda turned on the pressure in the second round which he dominated. It was all over after two knockdowns in the third. 19-year-old Zoda also holds the WBO Asia-Pacific title which he won last October on the road in Thailand against previously unbeaten Petchchorhae Kokietgym.

Pabon: I stopped it to protect Theophane

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Jr. welterweight Ashley Theophane criticized the ninth round stoppage by referee Luis Pabon in Friday night’s fight with Adrien Broner. The veteran world championship referee from Puerto Rico spoke to Fightnews.com® about his decision to stop the fight.

“I stopped the fight due to the superiority of Broner, who had hurt Theophane in several rounds,” said Pabon. “Theophane had won only two rounds at most. He wasn’t fully KO’d, but was very weak. So I let him get hurt more? It is clear that after he was hurt by Broner, he pointed to me with his left hand that signifies ‘no more.’ In boxing, a boxer does not request time when he’s still fighting.”

Broner: If we do fight, he won’t be 50-0

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Adrien Broner took to the hallways of the DC Armory to express his satisfaction, not only with winning his bout with Ashley Theophane but with his comments towards Floyd Mayweather, Jr. As he met the media in the rear hallway of the almost 75-year-old facility, Broner celebrated the two victories that About Billion Promotions boxers had over TMT boxers with his entourage who surrounded the media in attendance.

“AB OVER TMT! AB ON TOP! What everybody got to say now?” Broner yelled as he entered the hallway. Once talk switched to his 9th round TKO over Theophane, Broner was more subdued.

“Any performance I can always do better,” Broner said. “We did exactly what we trained on in the gym — that was a lot of power shots and I perfected it and got him out of there in the ninth round.”

“A stoppage is a stoppage,” Broner continued. “Whether it is 30 seconds in the first round or 10 seconds before the end of the 12th round. A stoppage is a stoppage. Point blank. Period.” (more…)

Theophane disputes stoppage

Jr. welterweight Ashley Theophane says he doesn’t agree with the ninth round stoppage by referee Luis Pabon in Friday night’s fight with Adrien Broner.

“I thought the stoppage was premature because I thought I was in the fight. Me and Broner were going at it. It looked like he was starting to get tired because he started to move around and wasn’t able to stay there with me as much.

“I thought the fight was back and forth and I think the next four rounds would have been the same. No way should the fight have gotten stopped. It’s a shame the referee did that. I was telling the referee, ‘I’m okay, I’m okay.’ Then he waved it off. I don’t know what he was thinking.”

Pacquiao exhorts youth to enroll in ROTC

Boxing icon and Saranggani Rep. Emmanuel “Manny” D. Pacquiao yesterday called on the country’s college students to choose military service training among the courses offered under the mandatory National Training Service Program to prepare them to defend the country in case of external aggression. “Bravery and patriotism are characters in the heart of every Filipino. But the cause of defending one’s country also requires preparedness and skills to be able to succeed,” said Pacquiao, a voluntary reservist with the rank of lieutenant colonel in the AFP Reserve Force.

Now running for senator, Pacquiao issued a strong appeal to college students to take up Reserve Officers Training Corps program from among the four NTSP courses that they have to enroll in. A student is required to finish one NTSP course as a requisite for graduation. (more…)

Broner: I don’t care if we spar or if we fight, Floyd’s gotta see me

After his one-sided win over Ashley Theophane, four-division former world champion Adrian “The Problem” Broner called out former friend Floyd Mayweather seated at ringside.

“As ya’ll know I’be been going through a lot this whole week and for me to bottle everything up and come in here and get the job done, I want to give a pat on the back to myself!” said Broner.

“Ya’ll probably know about this. Somebody that I looked up to, somebody that I admire, took the chance to do an interview and just talked all bad about me. I don’t know how ya’ll look at that, but I don’t like it. I wasn’t gonna do this but I’m a man that burns shit from physical activity so me and Floyd, he’s gotta see me. I’m a man at the end of the day. And I come from the streets, the trenches man, from the bottom, from nothing. I’m talking about water and cornflakes. I come from nothing and I will NEVER let a man disrespect me like that! So he’s gotta see me. I don’t care if we spar or if we fight. Let’s get it on!”

Avila landed a solid one-two combos in round three as Alvarado continued to go forward. The fourth round saw Avila suffer a cut above his right eye as he continued to box the aggressive Alvarado.

Sticking to the plan Avila was patient in round five boxing Alvarado, who kept coming forward with big punches. Halfway through round six, Alvarado rocked and backed up Avila with a right hand. Avila continued to stick and move in round seven as his boxing skill overwhelmed Alvarado’s aggression. Alvarado continued to chase Avila around the ring in round eight as Avila controlled the fight boxing. Avila was slick in the final two rounds as he frustrated Alvarado in route to a unanimous decision win as the judges scored the bout 100-90, 97-93, and 97-93. (more…)

Manny says he’s not feeling retirement

By Karl Freitag

Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao left the door open to possibly continuing his career after his April 9th PPV rubber match with Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“After this fight, I’ve already set my mind to go back to the Philippines and focus on my job,” said Pacman. “If I become a senator, that’s a big responsibility. I cannot say right now that I’m going to retire and I’m not coming back. I don’t want to say that because I don’t yet feel what you’re feeling when you get there (retirement).”

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum added, “Manny told me that he was going to retire after this fight. But I’ve been around this business as you know for 50 years and a lot of fighters can’t walk away. So I’m not advertising this as his last fight. It could be, it could not be. Like Manny says, he’s going to go back, he’s running for senate. If he becomes a senator, then he’ll have to decide whether he devotes full time to the senate, or if he can work in a continuous boxing career even as a senator. So again, that’s something he’s going to have to decide. But one thing for everybody on this line, I’m NOT selling this as Manny’s last fight. So if he does come back after this fight, don’t say I deceived anybody.” (more…)

Despite distractions, Broner a huge betting favorite

Photos: Charles M. James/threeceemedia.net

It’s been a tumultuous week for Adrien “The Problem” Broner. The four-division former world champion has seen felony warrants issued for him in his home state of Ohio, he’s been involved in a nasty public spat with “Big Bro” Floyd Mayweather, he lost his WBA super lightweight world title on the scale on Thursday (making no effort to shed the excess .4 pounds). Tonight he’ll be facing a very motivated Ashley Theophane at the DC Armory in a bout televised by Spike TV.

Broner is still about a -1200 or more favorite to defeat Theophane, but with all Broner’s “Problems,” Ashley is getting some late money at healthy “plus” odds.
