Dowayne Combrink stopped veteran Simon Mokoena in the second round in the main event of an action packed Box-and-Dine tournament produced by Jeff Ellis of African Ring in conjunction with Golden Gloves Promotions at the Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Tuesday night. Fighting at super middleweight, Combrink (73,92kgs) attacked from the opening bell and rocked the 42-year-old Mokoena (74,48kgs) with some big shots to the head.

Mokoena never recovered from the battering he received in the first round as Combrink continued to apply pressure before landing with a right to the jaw that dropped Mokoena against ropes where he was counted out by referee Phillip du Randt. Time 1:19. (more…)

Philadelphia’s own Steve “USS” Cunningham (26-6-0, 12 KOs) hopes to win over his hometown crowd at the Liacouras Center at Temple University on April 4th when he attempts to take the USBA Heavyweight Championship belt from the undefeated champion, Amir “Hardcore” Mansour (20-0-0, 15 KOs), on NBCSN Fight Night.

Cunningham said, “The last time I fought in Philadelphia, Philly didn’t know me. I learned to fight in the Navy so I didn’t have a following at home.

Only once beaten by current WBC bantam champ Shinsuke Yamanaka, WBC#1/WBO#4/IBF#10 Ryosuke Iwasa (17-1, 10 KOs), 117.75, kept his OPBF 118-pound belt by winning a majority but well-received decision (116-112, 116-113, 114-114) over top contender Richard Pumicpic (13-6-1, 4 KOs), 117, over twelve heats on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. The much taller southpaw Iwasa’s height and reach was a nuisance for Pumicpic to bore in, but the Filipino challenger gamely kept going forward with occasional rights to the champ’s face regardless of precision, while Iwasa connected with light but faster combinations to the onrushing Filipino.

Elongated Japanese, WBC#11/IBF#8/WBO#11 Hisashi Amagasa (26-4-2, 16 KOs), 125.75, retained his OPBF featherweight belt as he floored top contender Vinvin Rufino (34-16-3, 16 KOs), a southpaw Filipino, twice in the third round and finally halted him with a flurry of punches to prompt the referee’s intervention at 0:46 of the eighth session on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. For Amagasa, it was his initial defense since he dethroned Retsuri Lee in a hard-fought battle last October. Amagasa, a head taller than the challenger, didn’t utilize his advantageous reach and height but mixed it up with the shorter hard-hitting lefty. Rufino showed his recovery in rounds five and six, but Amagasa displayed a fierce retaliation en route to a stoppage. (more…)

Ioka to aim for third world belt in May

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten formerly two-time champ Kazuto Ioka (14-0, 9 KOs), Japan, will have an ambitious shot at the IBF flyweight belt against also unbeaten Thailander Amnat Ruenroeng (12-0, 5 KOs) in Osaka, Japan, on May 7. Having already won the WBC 105-pound and WBA 108-pound titles, Ioka, still 25, will attempt to capture his third belt in the 112-pound category against Amnat who acquired the vacant IBF throne by defeating Filipino Rocky Fuentes on points in Thailand last January. It will be the first defense for Amnat, 34, who reportedly once beat Ioka when they were amateurs. Previously there were triple-class champions, but it might be the quickest should Ioka win the third in his fifteenth bout.

IBF minimum champ Katsunari Takayama (26-6-0-1NC, 10 KOs), a fast-moving Japanese, will make his second defense against compatriot Shin Ono (17-5-2, 2 KOs), a puzzling southpaw, in a supporting card of the same show.

Michel: Adonis “Superman” Stevenson on Showtime because it was the best offer

Adonis “Superman” Stevenson’s promoter Yvon Michel has explained Stevenson’s move from HBO to Showtime on his Facebook page:

First we want to thanks HBO for the ride with Adonis in 2013. They gave him his first chance and they have raised him to the star status. We only have great comments for all HBO’s executive with whom we have worked very well and have established great relationship. I have presented what I believed was an excellent multi fight deal offer to Adonis from HBO with a deadline set for March 11th for approval. After discussions we have decided to pass and we got a better offer Showtime. HBO had the right to match any offers so we sent them a copy. They had until today to match it but have decided otherwise. This was pure business decision for all parties involved, nothing personal or immoral. We wish to praise M. Steven Espinoza of Showtime for his ambition to do business Adonis and GYM which was reflected into the offer he has presented, we are thankful to him. We are looking forward for a fruitful association. Adonis Stevenson was the fighter of the year for many websites and publications in 2013 and feels he is treated that way. His goals are to keep fighting and winning spectacular fights by knockout, to unify the light heavyweight titles and raised his recognition to the top 5 pound for pound this year. The next step is May 24th at the Montreal Bell Center against young #1 IBF/WBO and #3 WBC contender Andrzej Fonfara.

Stevenson jumping ship to Showtime

According to various reports, Showtime has snapped up the May 24 fight between WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson and Andrzej Fonfara that HBO was planning on airing. This likely scuttles HBO’s plans for an eventual Stevenson-Kovalev showdown. Stevenson was being developed as one of HBO’s next generation of boxing stars. He fought three times on the network in 2013 and even has a page dedicated to him on HBO’s website. However, the writing may have been on the wall when Stevenson recently signed a management deal with Al Haymon, who works primarily with Showtime.

Manny Pacquiao Quick Quotes

Former multi-division world champion Manny Pacquiao, Freddie Roach and Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum hosted an international media conference call from Pacquiao’s Hollywood training camp Tuesday to discussing the April 12 WBO welterweight championship rematch between Pacman and undefeated two-division world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley. This will also be Pacquiao’s first fight in the U.S. since 2012 as well as the first time he has ever challenged to regain a world title he formerly held.

Manny Pacquiao: We’re not focusing on a knockout. Our focus this time time is to put more aggressiveness and throw a lot of punches and if the knockout comes it comes. I just want to prove that I still have the hunger and the killer instinct.

Freddie Roach: Training is going very well. The Philippines worked out well. He’s really hungry. He’s sparred quite a few rounds. We had five different sparring partners and whatever Bradley brings to the table we’ll be ready for.

Bob Arum: This fight has been eagerly anticipated, a lot has been written about it, the two fighters are extraordinarily dedicated in their preparation. I really think this is going to be a monumental fight and I know from what I’m hearing from Freddie and Manny and watching at the Wild Card that Manny will be 100% prepared and will give a vintage Manny Pacquiao performance on April 12.
