Former world champion Jhonny Gonzalez (58-9, 49 KOs) scored a second round TKO over Kazuki Hashimoto (11-5, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Auditorio Bicentenario in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico. The big-punching Gonzalez dropped Hashimoto with a left hand and the bout was waved off. It was Jhonny’s first fight since losing the WBC featherweight championship to Gary Russell in March. He is now campaigning in the super featherweight division.

WBC female light flyweight champion in recess Esmeralda “Joya” Moreno used her experience to win by unanimous decision (96-94, 98-92 and 97-93) over Yessica Nery Plata in a WBC light flyweight eliminator fight.

Juan José Martínez won by unanimous ten round decision over Edgar Puerta and Edgar Monarrez scored a third round TKO over Ricardo “Piolo” Castillo.

Garcia stops Malignaggi in nine

By Matt Richardson at ringside
Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment

Former unified junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia stopped Paulie Malignaggi in nine rounds Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Garcia, fighting as a full-fledged welterweight, took some time to get his rhythm but when he did he was unstoppable. He hurt Malignaggi repeatedly throughout, busted up his face, cut him over the eye and ultimately stopped him on his feet when referee Arthur Mercante Jr. moved in to call the fight off at the 2:22 mark of the ninth round.

The fight was the main event of a “Premier Boxing Champions” card televised on ESPN.

Garcia (31-0, 18 KO’s), boxing in the same ring he beat Lamont Peterson in in April, connected with more and more of his power shots as the fight progressed. By the end of the eighth, Mercante was concerned enough that he had the ringside physician closely examine Malignaggi in the corner. The fight hesitantly continued but Mercante was clearly ready to step in at the first sign of trouble. Garcia went back to work chopping down his foe and after wobbling him with a series of rights the referee stepped in between the men to call an end to what had turned into a bad beat down. (more…)

Avalos, Ramos victorious in Frisco, Texas

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

IBF #9 ranked super bantamweight Chris “The Hitman” Avalos (26-3, 19 KO) stepped in for injured world #1 rated featherweight Jessie Magdaleno to pound out an eight round unanimous decision over Rey Perez (19-7, 4 KO) in the main event of Top Rank’s show at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas. Avalos, who last fought in February in a world title fight in Ireland where he was stopped by world champion Carl Frampton in the fifth round, showed he was more than up for the task even on a week notice. He landed the cleaner shots throughout the fight and won a fairly easy fight by scores of 80-72 twice and 79-73.

The first few rounds saw very little action as each fighter was unable to establish anything of significance. By the 5th round Avalos and Perez started to exchange and the action picked up. In the 7th round, Avalos opened it with a nice combination and Perez countered with shots of his own. Perez landed his biggest punch in the 8th round, an overhand right that temporarily stopped Avalos in his tracks. (more…)

Jacobs stops Mora in two

By Matt Richardson at ringside

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

That was the immediate takeaway of the co-featured fight of the evening when WBA “regular” middleweight title-holder Danny Jacobs stopped former “Contender” star Sergio Mora in the second round on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The fight began violently with both men getting knocked down in the opening round. A freak injury to Mora’s right ankle in the second round, however, prematurely ended the fight with just five seconds left until the break.

It was too bad as the opening round was one of the best in boxing so far this year. Mora was aggressive early and he scored with rights but Jacobs came back with a hard right hook that dropped Mora on his back. Mora rose and listened to an official eight-count but was still clearly hurt. Sensing an opportunity, Jacobs ran in to finish his work but Mora connected with a left hook of his own that dropped Jacobs to one glove. Then it was Jacobs who was taking a count of his own. While being administered the count Jacobs shook his head in acknowledgement and smiled at Mora across the ring. When the fight resumed both men were still shaky and neither could capitalize on their earlier success.

In the second, Jacobs charged in and in an effort to escape the oncoming punches, Mora bent down and fell to the canvas. On his way south his right leg bent underneath him in an awkward fashion. It didn’t appear to be a real knockdown although it was called one anyway by referee Gary Rosato. When Mora rose, however, he grimaced in pain due to an apparent injury to his right ankle. Rosato was prepared to continue the fight but Mora tried to walk to his corner and couldn’t and the fight was called off immediately. (more…)

Undercard Results from Barclays Center

By John DiSanto and Matt Richardson at ringside

Between the two feature bouts, junior middleweight Prichard Colon, 15-0, 12 KOs, scored a second round TKO over Michael Finney, 12-4-1, 10 KOs. Colin took the first round and then in round two, staggered Finney with a hard right hand. Wasting no time, Colon continued punching and drove home three more big shots as Finney fell to the canvas. The Las Vegas fighter struggled to his feet, but the referee would not allow him to continue. The time was 1:23 of the second round. Colin, Orocovis, PR, remained undefeated and scored his second consecutive KO. The fight was scheduled for eight rounds. (John DiSanto)

Unbeaten Travis Peterkin received the first blemish on his professional record (and quite a few on his face) when he battled to an eight-round majority draw against Lenin Castillo. A lone score of 76-75 for Peterkin was overruled by two identical tallies of 75-75. Peterkin (15-0-1, 7 KO’s) seemed to have got outworked in the majority of the rounds although a cut and bloodied right eye suffered by Castillo in the third may have swayed some judges. Still, Peterkin appeared to get lucky after he had points docked in two consecutive rounds. First, in the fourth, he lost a point after hitting on the break. Referee Mike Ortega then deducted another in the fifth when Peterkin connected with a low blow in the first minute of the round. Castillo is now 12-0-1 with seven wins inside the distance.

Campbell punishes Coyle, Rose avenges loss to Jones, Whyte destroys Costa, Burns halts Ofotsu

In a WBC lightweight eliminator, 2012 Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell (12-0, 10 KOs) scored a tenth round KO over hometown rival Tommy Coyle (21-3, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the KC Lightstream Stadium in Hull, England. Campbell dropped the game Coyle with a body shot in round two, and finished him with four knockdowns in round ten. Time was 1:41.

Former super welterweight title challenger Brian “The Lion” Rose (27-3-1, 8 KOs) avenged a first round TKO loss to Carson Jones (37-11-3, 27 KOs) with a twelve round unanimous decision. Jones rocked Rose and split Rose’s nose open in round two. Good two-way action. Jones pretty much walked through Rose’s punches but Rose had a higher workrate. Scores were 119-111, 116-112, 117-112.

Unbeaten heavyweight Dillian Whyte (14-0, 11 KOs) scored a quick first round KO over Irineu Beato Costa Junior (17 5, 15 KOs). Whyte dropped Costa Junior twice and the bout was waved off at 2:41. Whyte is on course for a showdown with countryman Anthony Joshua.

Former two-division world champion Ricky Burns (38-5-1, 12 KOs) won when the corner of Prince Ofotsu (15-5, 11 KOs) bizarrely threw in the towel in round five in a lightweight bout. Ofotsu wasn’t in any trouble and even caught the towel when it was thrown in. Time was 1:43.

Super featherweight Martin J. Ward (12-0-2, 6 KOs) outpointed 40-year-old Sergio Blanco (21-2-1, 6 KOs) over ten uneventful rounds. Scores were 97-93, 97-93, 98-93.

Super lightweight Kristian Laight (10-202-7, 0 KOs) surprised previously unbeaten Carl Chadwick (2-1, 0 KOs), taking a four round decision.

Caferro forces Wright to quit after two

Story and Photos by Ricardo Ibarra

Montana State Welterweight title holder Duran Caferro made the second successful defense of his title on Friday night at the Eagles Lodge in Helena, Montana, needing just two rounds of one-sided action to force St. Louis, Missouri’s Kelly Wright to retire on his stool at the start of the third round. Fighting in the headline bout of H-Town Eagles Boxing Clubs’ six bout Pro/Am show, Caferro (13-1, 10 KOs) quickly set the tempo of the fight in the first round, dictating the distance with hard jabs and lateral movement. Wright (4-17) made numerous attempts to get in close and land something of consequence, but Caferro countered well, landing on his southpaw opponent with straight rights and left hooks. By the end of the round Caferro was landing with precision to Wright’s head and body rocking him back with fierce combinations. (more…)

After tonight’s terrific lineup of fights, remember that there will more live fights on Bounce TV Sunday night. In the main event, WBA bantamweight champion Juan Carlos “Baby Pacquiao” Payano (16-0, 8 KOs) defends against Rau’shee “Nuke” Warren (13-0, 4 KOs) from Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. This is Payano’s first fight since dethroning longtime champion Anselmo Moreno last September. Moreno held the “super” version of the WBA world title, but Payano was designated the WBA “undisputed” world champion instead. There is also a WBA “regular” world champion and an “interim” world champ in the division. Southpaw Warren is a three-time U.S. Olympian.

“I am very prepared for this fight and have no injuries,” proclaimed Payano. “I’m 100 percent ready. Training went very well. I am a warrior with the hunger to prevail and win. I’m ready to leave everything in the ring Sunday night. Warren merits a title shot. He’s one of the best fighters in the division. It’ll be a great fight. He won’t win, but it’ll be a great fight. I see a lot of errors in Warren’s style. That particular style of his has a lot of errors in it and I’ll attack them as I see them. He’s perfect for me.” (more…)

WBC #12 bantamweight Ricardo “Meserito” Rodriguez (11-2, 3 KOs) moved down a division to hammer out a ten round majority decision over local favorite Daniel “Alacran” Lozano (13-3, 10 KOs) on Friday night at the A La Carte Event Pavillion in Tampa, Florida. It was a tactical fight with Rodriguez mostly pressing the action and outworking Lozano. Lozano’s best moments came in the last round when he connected with a number of desperation power shots. It was too little, too late, however as Rodriguez prevailed by scores of 97-93, 98-92, 95-95 to claim the vacant WBO Latin super flyweight title.

Details on advance tickets and a national press tour will be announced shortly.

Gennady Golovkin: “I’m very excited to face David Lemieux to prove who is #1 in the middleweight division. I look forward to fighting again at Madison Square Garden and putting on another Big Drama Show for my fans in New York City.”

David Lemieux: “I’ve said that I don’t care who I fight, so long as they are the best, and Golovkin is the best out there in the middleweight division. GGG may be the most feared man in boxing, but after October 17th, there will be a new feared man in the middleweight division. Two very powerful punchers are coming into the ring. There will be blood; there will be fireworks, and I am confident I will emerge victorious.”

Unbeaten Casey Ramos in spotlight on UniMas

Report/Video/Photo by Robert Hughes

Undefeated super featherweight Casey Ramos (19-0, 5 KOs) is the latest Top Rank boxer to be given a chance to shine and become a superstar from The Lone Star state. On Thursday Ramos met with the media, working out for the final time at a downtown Dallas gym ahead of this weekend’s event, his 20th professional fight. So far he has done little wrong as a pro boxer, going undefeated through 19 fights against some respectable opposition in a career spanning more than eight years, so far.

Saturday’s eight-round bout at 130 pounds against Daniel Evangelista, Jr. (17-5, 13 KOs) will be Ramos’ first in more than 8 months.

Pair that with 110 amateur bouts and that makes Ramos, 26, a young ring veteran without a lot of miles, physical abuse or lingering injuries. BoxRec currently ranks him as the No. 17 USA super flyweight.

“I’m ready to go,” Ramos said. (more…)

Caferro to defend Montana state title tonight

By Ricardo Ibarra

Montana State welterweight title holder Duran Caferro will look to make the second defense of his title and add to his ten fight unbeaten streak this Friday at the Eagles Lodge in Helena, Montana.
