Kondo stops bloodied IBF #10 Patomsuk in four

Photo: Boxing Beat


By Joe Koizumi

Former Japanese lightweight champ Akihiro Kondo (22-6-1, 11 KOs), 140, decked an important victory when he halted IBF #10 junior welterweight Patomsuk Pathompthong (29-4-1, 18 KOs), 140, because of the Thailander’s bad bleeding at 1:55 of the fourth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The shaven skulled Thailander started well, but Kondo caught him with a solid right and had him rubbery-legged in the closing seconds of the opening session, when the home-towner bloodied him around the left optic with legal shots. The second and third saw Kondo take the initiative with more accurate and effective combinations to the still shaky opponent. Having Patomsuk examined by the ring physician time and again, the third man finally declared a halt to save such a gory contestant as Patomsuk midway in round four.

Promoter: Ichiriki Promotions.

Mora ready to press the action Saturday

Former 154lb world champion Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora (28-3-2, 9 KOs) concedes that KO artist Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (29-1, 26 KOs) will have the advantage in power when they meet for Jacobs’ WBA “regular” middleweight belt on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. But Mora is confident he can beat the 12:1 odds. “I just continue educating people about the sweet science and letting them know that power is not the number one aspect you need to be successful. It’s your agility, techniques, your defense, body shots, the strategy, it’s following that strategy.

“Like I said, I think he possesses everything that I don’t. But I have the experience. I think I take a better shot from experience with Danny and I think I follow my game plan more than Danny. A lot of boxers especially a lot of young athletic fighters they go out of their game plan and once they see that it’s not working. As a veteran, I know that it’s not working initially. (more…)

Jacobs aiming to be the first to stop Mora

WBA “regular” middleweight champion Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (29-1, 26 KOs) defends his title against former 154lb champion Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora (28-3-2, 9 KOs) in Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. “It’ll be against the most experienced guy I’ve faced thus far. I’m looking forward to testing my challenge against this slick, crafty veteran in Sergio Mora.

“So there’s not a lot of fear as far as power is concerned but where he lacks that he makes up in his craftiness and his slickness and awkwardness and sometimes he does engage in the action as well. The test with Sergio Mora is whether that he can be stopped or whether or not I can go the distance with him, he’s never been stopped before, so it will be icing on the cake to be able to not only to defeat him but to stop him in the match.

“I feel like I have a lot more advantages than he does in the fight. But whatever my advantages are and whatever gets me going, will be the deciding factor for me I would stick to. So if it’s my speed, then I’ll stick to using my speed. If it’s my power, backing him down, showing him what a real middleweight feels like, then that’s what I would do.”

Burns: I’ll take on the best of British at lightweight

Ricky Burns says he wants to fight the best of British at Lightweight as he returns to action against Prince Ofotsu at the KC Lightstream Stadium in Hull on Saturday. The Scotsman believes that Britain’s 135lbs scene is red hot with Manchester’s Anthony Crolla coming close to being the second world champion in the division from the city last weekend after his epic battle with WBA ruler Darleys Perez, following Terry Flanagan landing the WBO crown the weekend before against Jose Zepeda. With gym pal and former foe Kevin Mitchell also just missing out on landing the WBC belt with an heroic performance against Jorge Linares in London, Burns believes he has put himself right back into pole position with his impressive performance in Texas in May against former World champion Omar Figueroa.

“There are so many big fights at Lightweight not only in the UK but on the world scene and I can’t wait to get involved in the thick of it,” said Burns. “It was frustrating before to hear people say that I was being sent out to America to just be an opponent for Figueroa, I proved them wrong. I will fight anybody, that’s the only way you get the big fights. We aren’t looking at a particular route or governing body – whatever comes our way, we will be ready. (more…)

Buglioni-Chudinov rescheduled for Sept 26

Frank Buglioni will get his WBA super middleweight title shot against champion Fedor Chudinov on September 26 at the SSE Arena, Wembley. He destroyed tough Mexican Fernando Castaneda inside five rounds last Friday night to clear the path for his rescheduled fight against Chudinov. Buglioni was due to face Chudinov last Friday night at the SSE Arena, but the Russian withdrew two weeks’ prior to the fight with a broken nose sustained in sparring, but Buglioni didn’t put his training to waste and fought Castaneda instead and also claimed the Vacant WBA International title.

Chudinov, from Serpukhov, Moscow, defeated German great Felix Sturm in May when he won the WBA title on a split decision in Sturm’s backyard. Undefeated Chudinov has a perfect record of 13 wins with eight stoppages and is looking to avenge his brother Dmitry’s defeat to Chris Eubank Jr. in February. (more…)

Big Changes Usher in New Chapter for Danny Garcia

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

After dipping his toe into the post-140-pound pool in his past two catch-weight starts, former junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, 30-0, 17 KOs, is set to fully embrace the welterweight division on August 1st at the Barclay’s Center. In his fifth trip to Brooklyn, Garcia will face former two-time champ and hometown hero Paulie Malignaggi, 33-6, 7 KOs, in a 12-round, 147-pound bout to be nationally televised by ESPN as part of the Premiere Boxing Champions series.

“August is a big month for me,” Garcia said. “First I got Paulie Malignaggi on August 1st. I’m training hard and I’m prepared, and then a couple days later I become a father.” (more…)

Rodriguez returns on Telemundo Friday

This Friday’s Boxeo TELEMUNDO Ford main event will feature WBC FECARBOX belt holder Ricardo “Meserito” Rodriguez (10-2, 3 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico (11-2, 4 KOs) versus local favorite Daniel “Alacran” Lozano (13-2, 10 KOs) of nearby Bowling Greens, Florida (13-2, 10 KOs). The super flyweight bout is scheduled for 10 rounds with the vacant WBC Latin title at stake. The site of the show will be the A La Carte Event Pavilion, in Tampa, Florida and aired on the Telemundo Network. The event is being presented by Tuto Zabala, Jr., All Star Boxing, Inc in association with Shea Bailey Promotions.

It was a breakout performance for Rodriguez who looks to keep the momentum going vs Lozano who will have a large portion of the crowd behind him. This is not a concern for Rodriguez who is confident he can score another impressive victory to go to 3 and 0 in the state of Florida. (more…)

“The people saw once again that I am blessed,” told after the fight Serafim Todorov. “I received two-three good shots. If I had more time to train, I would stop my opponent in the first round. This guy was 20 years younger than me. It was like I am fighting with my son.

Golden Boy leaving FS1 and FD, moves to Estrella TV

Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions today announced that it has signed a three-year deal with Estrella TV to broadcast two boxing cards live every month on its network across the country, including the popular new series LA Fight Club. Estrella TV will air its first fight under the deal with Golden Boy Promotions on Friday, September 4. Additional fight cards and broadcast dates will be announced soon. Estrella TV is the fourth most popular Spanish language network in the USA behind Univision, Telemundo and UniMas.

“Estrella TV is one of the top-rated networks across the U.S. among Hispanic audiences so it was an easy decision to partner with them in bringing live, exciting boxing matches to their viewers across America,” said Golden Boy Promotions Chairman and CEO Oscar De La Hoya. “Latinos comprise the largest fan base for our sport so we see this partnership with Estrella TV as a great opportunity to showcase our stable of fighters before an audience that is hungry to watch action-packed match-ups.”

The series had been airing on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes (and there is still a FOX Deportes telecast scheduled for August 6). Although not announced yet, it is rumored that Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions series will replace Golden Boy as the boxing content provider to those networks. PBC also airs fights on Showtime, NBC, NBCSN, CBS, ESPN, ESPN Deportes, Spike and Bounce TV. Golden Boy will be working with HBO and Estrella TV.

Carson Jones: I’ll KO Rose’s career

Carson Jones says he will KO Brian Rose again in their rematch – and end his career in the process – when they clash at the KC Lightstream Stadium in Hull on Saturday night. Jones stopped Rose in Blackpool on Valentine’s Day in controversial fashion inside a round and returns to repeat the dose. Rose appeared to hurt the Oklahoma man early in the fight but was then staggered himself with a right hand and when Jones landed another, the referee jumped in and called the fight off.

Rose demanded a rematch straight away and gets the chance to get his career back on track, but Jones believes ‘The Lion’ will come to the end of the road in Hull. “I know I will stop him again,” said Jones. “I don’t know what round but it’s going to come.

Machimana stops Mudimba in the third round

By Ron Jackson

Former South African heavyweight champion Osborne Machimana returned to action after twenty months to knockout Mugabon Mudimba from Democratic Republic of the Congo in the third round, at Primrose near Germiston on Friday night. Machimana proved that he was well prepared when he weighed in at (106.05 kg) and looked in fine condition.

However, one must question the quality of his opponent Mudimba (90.75 kg) who was dominated by the better conditioned Machimana before being knocked out the third round. Machimana improved his record to 19-8-2; 14 and Mudimba’s record according to Boxrec is now 0-2 (0). The only fight recorded before his match with Machimana was a fifth knockout loss to Zack Mwekassa on May 31 2013.
