Kuga stops WBO#6 Ishimoto to win Japanese 122lb belt; Higa, 12-0, 12 KOs, decks tune-up bout before WBC 112lb title shot

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

Game and gallant Yusaku Kuga (14-2-1, 10 KOs), 121.75, impressively captured the Japanese 122-pound belt when he swarmed over WBO#6 defending titlist Yasutaka Ishimoto (29-9, 8 KOs), 121.75, from the outset, dropped him with an overhand right and halted him with a towel-tossing from the corner at 2:49 of the second round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Ishimoto, who once upset Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. on points in Macao in 2013, was a prefight favorite due to his previous hairline decision over Kuga in an elimination bout for the vacant national belt thirteen months ago. Ishimoto, making his third defense, absorbed Kuga’s furious opening attack, and hit the deck with an overhand right to the side of the head. It looked like a slip, but the referee Biney Martin took a count and had it go on. The second session witnessed Kuga follow up with a flurry of punches downstairs and upstairs despite the champ’s occasional retaliation. As Kuga accelerated his assault, a towel came in fluttering from the champ’s corner. It looked like a premature stoppage, but since it was thrown by Ishimoto’s chief second, we may have to respect the cornerman’s decision. (more…)

Rojo shocks WBC #1 lightweight Jardon

In a major upset, unheralded Francisco “Paquito“ Rojo (19-2, 12 KOs) scored a fifth round KO over WBC #1 rated lightweight contender Dante “Crazy“ Jardón (30-6, 23 KOs) on Saturday night in a fight that took place at the new Arena Oasis Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. After four rounds, two judges had it 40-36 for Jardon and the other had it 38-38 according to WBC open scoring. In round five, Rojo knocked down Jardon three times and referee Celestino Castro deemed Jardon unable to continue. Time was 2:07. Rojo claimed the WBC Latino title with the win.

Also, former WBO and IBF minimumweight world champion Francisco “Chihuas” Rodriguez (22-4-1, 14 KOs) scored a five round technical decision over Hajime Nagai (14-8-2, 4 KOs). Nagai visited the canvas twice in the second round. The bout was eventually cut short and sent to the scorecards due to a cut suffered by Nagai from a headbutt. Scores were 50-43 across the board for Rodriguez, who could be headed for a clash with Roman “Chocolatito” González.

Pennington surprises Gray in upset

By Jason Marchetti at ringside

In the main event at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI, Courtney Pennington (10-4-1, 5 KO’s) upset Khiary Gray (14-2, 11 KO’s) for the UBF Northeast Jr. Middleweight Title. The card was promoted by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports.

Gray won the first three rounds using his jab and landing the heavier shots as he is known for his power. However, the bout changed in the 4th when Pennington scored a knockdown as Gray slipped on the ropes. Despite a welt on his left eye, Pennington continued the momentum by timing Gray’s punches and effectively counter-punching and mounting a steady offense.

Gray ‘slipped’ two more times later in the bout, which could have easily been scored knockdowns. In the 7th, Gray tired so much that Pennington landed several unguarded right hand blows to Gray’s head. Gray survived the round on wobbly legs and wasn’t able to gain enough strength to mount a knockout effort in the 8th and final round. Pennington took shots himself, but was able to gain his composure and outbox the the heavy-handed local champion. The final scores were 77-74, 76-75, and 78-73 in a fantastic main event in front of a full house. (more…)

Trainer Kevin Barry: Time for boxing spotlight on Ugonoh

“This is my moment and 2017 is my year. I want to challenge myself and show the world how good I am. If I do what I’m supposed to do, I can see myself fighting for a world championship in the next 18 months,” says unbeaten heavyweight Izuagbe “Black Pole” Ugonoh (17-0, 14 KOs).

Ugonoh was born in Szczecin, Poland, to Nigerian parents and recently signed with Haymon Sports. His trainer Kevin Barry is convinced that Ugonoh’s fight with Dominic Breazeale (17-1, 15 KOs) on the undercard of the February 25 Deontay Wilder-Gerald Washington championship bout (PBC on FOX) will be a perfect stage to introduce the “Black Pole” to America.

Verdejo struggles to win over Flores

WBO #1 lightweight Felix “El Diamante” Verdejo (21-0, 15 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Oliver Flores (27-4-2, 17 KOs) on Friday night in front of 7,143 boxing fans at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Verdejo, returning to the ring for the first time since a bad motorcycle accident last August, controlled most the fight against the defensive-minded Flores. Flores finally woke up in round eight and started taking it to Verdejo the rest of the way. It was too little, too late for Flores, however, as Verdejo won 99-91, 96-94, 98-92.

Next up for “El Diamante” could be a world title shot against WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan this summer, possibly at Madison Square Garden. Coming off this performance, one must ask if Verdejo is really ready for Flanagan. (more…)

In the semi-final bout, bantamweight Christian Carto extended his knockout streak to seven straight (7-0, 7 KOs) with a third round stoppage of Sergio Najera, 12-29-2, 6 KOs. The experienced Mexican gave Carto a test by trying to rough up the local puncher, and even landed a few good shots of his own. However, Carto remained cool, consistently landed a good jab and never stopped drilling Najera with hard right hands. Finally in round three after an extended volley of hard shots by Carto, referee Blair Talmadge stopped the fight. There were no knockdowns. The time was 2:06. (more…)

Green-Mundine Result Under Fire

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

In what was widely considered a controversial verdict, Danny Green took a majority nod over Anthony Mundine on Friday night in Adelaide, Australia. American judges Steve Morrow and Hubert Minn had Green ahead 96-94 and 98-90, while Australian judge Tom Ferrauto saw it 94-94. The Aussie broadcast team was highly critical of the result.

Broadcaster Barry Michael: “I had ‘Choc’ winning quite comfortably, to be honest … I don’t see the decision as correct. I’m sorry.”

Broadcaster Paul Kent: “Anthony Mundine won that fight, let’s be clear about that … Mundine knows he won the fight.”

Social media also erupted with outrage at the result. With the series tied 1-1 and pulling in record crowds, there may be only one way to settle this. Are you ready for Green-Mundine 3?

Duco wins purse bid for Parker-Fury, to take place in New Zealand April 1st

By David Finger

Purse bids for the Joseph Parker-Hughie Fury fight just took place at the Verdanza Hotel in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico today (Friday, February 3rd). Despite rumors that the event might end up in London, it was Parker’s promoter Duco Events that came out on top with a winning bid of $3,000,011.
The Joseph Parker-Hughie Fury fight will take place on April 1st in Auckland, New Zealand.

Parker defeated American Andy Ruiz by majority decision on December 10th in what was one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting events in New Zealand’s history. Parker, who hails from South Auckland, is arguably the most popular athlete in New Zealand’s history and will undoubtedly be coming into the ring with the crowd in his corner. The 25-year old Parker has a record of 22-0, 18 KOs. The 22-year old Hughie Fury has a record of 20-0, 10 KOs and will be fighting for the first time outside of Europe since stopping Canadian David Whittom in Montreal back in 2013.

Ortiz: Wilder is nothing but a paper champion

Responding to WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder’s recent public statements, former WBA Interim Heavyweight Champion Luis Ortiz would like to let him know: “I signed up for the WBC/VADA Clean Boxing Program last September. Stop using that excuse to avoid fighting me!”

The undefeated Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs), of Camaguey, Cuba, now living in Miami, says he has been trying to get Wilder into a boxing ring for quite a while.

“He’s scared!” said Ortiz of Wilder. “The more he can use my failed test against me he will. He and (promoter Lou) DiBella are saying he won’t fight me because of that. That was years ago, and since that unfortunate incident, for which I was punished, I have tested a dozen times clean. Now he’s trying to say I haven’t signed up for VADA Clean Boxing… guess what Wilder? I signed up last September when I was notified that all WBC contenders need to be part of their new Clean Boxing Program. I filled out the paperwork and my trainer submitted it to the WBC. He can stop using that excuse to avoid me. I have nothing to hide and do not have to prove any longer to anyone that I am clean. Wilder is nothing but a paper champion who happened to be at the right place at the right time against the right opponent with, most importantly, the right promoter. That’s all he is.

“…When I look at Deontay Wilder, I see an unsure, scared fighter. He’s crazy with his technique and worried about being hit. When you are that worried about getting hit, when you do get hit, you usually get knocked out.” (more…)

Collazo KOs Vasquez in six

By Tracy Morin at ringside
Photos: Ryan Greene/Premier Boxing Champions

In the main event on Thursday from the Horseshoe in Tunica, Mississippi, southpaw Sammy Vasquez (21-2, 15 KOs) looked to bounce back from his first defeat by facing Luis Collazo, (37-7, 20 KOs), himself coming off a layoff after his loss to Keith Thurman. Vasquez established his jab and lateral movement from round 1, circling Collazo to avoid damage while potshotting from the perimeter. As Collazo barreled ahead in the second, Vasquez’s footwork and angles prevented much success. But when Collazo was able to suck Vasquez into more of a slugfest halfway through the third, a left-right combo as Collazo was pressed against the ropes sent Vasquez to the canvas. He beat the count and returned the favor in the fourth by stunning Collazo early with a left, then pressed the action only for Collazo to return vicious fire with his own combinations; the entire round was a barn burner, with each taking turns teeing off and Collazo smartly picking his power shots while pressed against the ropes. After a tit-for-tat fifth, Collazo unleashed a beast of a right hand (set up by a left hook) that positively crumpled Vasquez. Though a count was administered, Vasquez’s clear nonresponse caused ref Bill Clancy to halt the fight at 1:27 of round 6. (more…)

Briggs-Oquendo going to purse bid

The WBA Championships Committee has called for a purse bid on February 13 for the WBA regular heavyweight title clash between Shannon Briggs and Fres Oquendo. Negotiations were ordered January 2 with a period 30 days to negotiate, but talks failed to yield results, therefore the Championships Committee fast-tracked the purse bid. Percentages are 50/50 because the belt is vacant and the minimum bid is one million dollars.

The proceedings will take place at the WBA offices in Panama City and will be directed by WBA executive board member Aurelio Fiengo.

Berchelt gets belted by WBC

By Gabriel F. Cordero

New WBC super featherweight champion Miguel “Alacrán” Berchelt received his new green and gold belt from WBC President Mauricio Sulaimán on Thursday before hundreds of members of the national and international press along with fans and boxing people in Mexico City. Berchelt dethroned Francisco ‘Bandido’ Vargas by way of the knockout last Saturday at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.

“I didn’t know if I could still be world champion, that my name would be with Chavez, Argüello, Barrera, Morales. I can say that I entered history with gold letters, everyone who talks about me will say that I am a great boxing champion! There is no other nicer belt.”

Sulaimán added, “He has come through the big door to the WBC. He defeated a great champion and we are sure that we will speak for a long time of Miguel Berchelt!”
