Szpilka defeats Adamek on “Night of Upsets” in Krakow, Poland

In a heavyweight grudge match, +175 underdog Artur “The Pin” Szpilka (17-1, 12 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over former two division world champion Tomasz Adamek (49-4, 29 KOs) in front of 17,000+ at the Krakow Arena in Krakow, Poland. The 25-year-old Szpilka was a little quicker and and energetic than the 37-year-old Adamek. Adamek had his best round in round eight, but Szpilka finished well to win by scores of 96-94, 98-92, 96-94. After the fight, Adamek told Polish TV “I think this is over for me.”

In his first bout following a two year incarceration, formerly world rated light heavyweight Dawid Kostecki (39-2, 25 KOs) was surprisingly upset by Andrzej Soldra (11-1-1, 5 KOs) in an eight round slugfest. Kostecki dropped Soldra in round two, but slowed down later in the bout. Scores were 76-75, 77-75, 77-75, all for Soldra.

In another upset, unbeaten Maciej Sulecki (19-0, 4 KOs) knocked out former middleweight title challenger Grzegorz Proksa (29-4, 21 KOs) in round seven. A Sulecki right hand put Proksa down face first.

In a clash between unbeaten jr welterweights, Michal Syrowatka (11-0, 3 KOs) annihilated Michal Chudecki (10-1-1, 3 KOs) in round one. This was another mild upset.

Sturm-Stieglitz twelve round war ends in draw

By Karl Freitag

In an all-German clash at a 165.5 pound catch weight, former four-time middleweight champion Felix Sturm (39-4-3, 18 KOs) and former two-time super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz (47-4-1, 27 KOs) battled to an action-packed twelve round draw on Saturday night at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart, Germany. The larger Stieglitz was the aggressor, trying to impose his size advantage over the former 160lb champion, but was Sturm landing the cleaner shots early. Stieglitz upped the pressure in round four. Good two-way action in most rounds. Stieglitz came on strong in round eleven and both left it all in the ring in round twelve. Scores were 115-113 Stieglitz, 115-113 Sturm, and 114-114.

Both fighters talked about a rematch after the fight. WBO super middleweight Arthur Abraham, expected to fight the winner, stated he thought Sturm won the fight. Also at ringside was WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, who agreed with the draw.

WBA female flyweight champion Susi Kentikian (34-2, 17 KOs) won a hard fought ten round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Naoko Fujioka (12-1, 6 KOs). Scores were 97-93, 97-94, 96-94. (more…)

Short night for Montreal fighters/ring card girls

By Dave Spencer at ringside

On a night where the ring card girls were ordered out of the building, middleweight Francis Lafreniere (7-5-2 4KO) made sure they weren’t needed, ending things early and scoring a TKO victory at 2:16 of the 2nd round of a scheduled eight over Marcin Cybulski (8-4-2 7KO) at the scenic Chateau Vaudreuil, situated just west of Montreal. The 26-year-old scored his 4th successive victory as the well-heeled trio of tabulators were being escorted from ringside by commission officials for apparently being well-lubricated. Inside the ring, a right hand put the visiting Pole down to the canvas and Lafreniere didn’t let up forcing referee Albert Padulo to call a halt to the match. (more…)

Hopkins’ spot in the Boxing Hall of Fame is assured, but at nearly 50 is he reaching too far?

By Graham Houston

Time after time, fight after fight, fans and critics wonder if Bernard Hopkins will finally show his age and “grow old overnight” as the saying goes. And time after time, fight after fight, the answer is: Not this time. Hopkins is a marvel of the ring, a unique fighter whose like surely will never be seen again. Now, just a couple of months before he turns 50, Hopkins seeks to demonstrate his ageless qualities once again when he faces Russia’s undefeated and powerful punching Sergey Kovalev in a light-heavyweight championship unification bout at Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City on Saturday.

Is Hopkins reaching too far? At 49, one might have expected Hopkins to take an easier fight, perhaps against someone such as Nadjib Mohammedi, the mandatory contender for Hopkins’s IBF title. To the surprise of many, no doubt, Hopkins instead is choosing to meet a fighter that he might have been expected to avoid.

Kovalev, after all, has blasted out 23 opponents in 25 wins. (It should be 24 KOs in 26 wins, but Kovalev inadvertently landed a left hook to the back of the head in the second round of a 2011 bout against a southpaw from Tennessee named Grover Young, causing Young to drop to his hands and knees and stay down, resulting in a technical draw under California state rules.)

The thing is, though, Hopkins has a special talent for spotting flaws, even weaknesses, in opponents, and he obviously sees something that makes him believe that “Krusher” Kovalev can be beaten. (more…)

Roy Jones Jr. explains why he’s training Jesse Vargas

Photo: Chris Farina/Top Rank

When undefeated World Boxing Association (WBA) super lightweight champion Jessie Vargas makes his second title defense, against former world champion Antonio Demarco, on the Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao vs. Chris Algieri world welterweight championship pay-per-view undercard, it will be more than a battle between two Mexican warriors, it will be the first time Freddie Roach and four-division world champion Roy Jones, Jr. have worked the same fight as trainers from opposite corners. Furthermore, Jones will be doing the commentary on the remaining pay-per-view telecast fights.

How did the Vargas-Jones partnership come to be?

“I called Jessie’s fight on HBO when he fought [Anton] Novikov last August. Jessie won but I did not see the improvements I was hoping to see,” said Jones. “He asked me to train him for the DeMarco fight and I agreed. I am working with five fighters right now but Jessie is my first champion. We worked on Jessie’s mechanics for the first four weeks before we began sparring. He’s developing more speed – and more speed means more power. My plan is to work Jessie’s corner in Macau, then go back to ringside and call the fights for HBO Pay-Per-View.” (more…)

Adamek-Szpilka weigh in: It’s personal in Krakow

By Przemek Garczarczyk
Photos: Bartek Jurecki

25-year-old Artur Szpilka (16-1, 12 KO) has always been a fighter who wears his emotions on the sleeve – especially when when talking about former two-division world champion and nemesis 37-year-old Tomasz Adamek (49-3, 29 KO). You could cut tension with the proverbial knife tonight in Krakow, when Adamek and Szpilka met tonight before their sold out (17,500 tickets!) fight on Saturday. They were close enough to whisper some choice words during a face off – with Szpilka’s “I will teach you some tricks!” message, and Adamek smiling response: “I will beat you up, boy!” Adamek was 226.1 wearing sweatpants, Szpilka was 222.6 naked.

Polsat Boxing Night, a premiere boxing event in Poland with only Polish fighters on the card, will bring some internationally known boxers to the ring – former European champion and WBA middleweight title contender Grzegorz Proksa (29-3, 21 KO) will be challenged by undefeated Maciej Sulęcki (18-0, 3 KO). Saturday will also mean a return to the ring, after 2 year prison sentence, for one of the most talented and extravagant light heavyweights – ranked in the top by all sanctioned bodies before his incarceration Dawid Kostecki (39-1, 25 KO). Kostecki, who is an overwhelming favorite in Krakow and vows that he will still be a world champion, will face Andrzej Sołdra (10-1, 5 KO). photos
