Flanagan camp targets Linares to avenge Crolla

After watching Anthony Crolla lose for the second time against Jorge Linares, Steve Wood, manager of WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan, says that after Flanagan defends against Petr Petrov on April 8, they will pursue revenge for the Manchester fans by aiming for a unification bout with Linares.

Crolla, who lost his WBA World lightweight belt to Linares last September, was soundly beaten again on Saturday (March 25) by the classy Venezuelan and Wood, who was ringside to witness Crolla’s demise, is more convinced than ever that Manchester has been ‘backing the wrong horse.’

WBC President – Jose Sulaiman´s son

I want to begin by expressing to our dear Don Majeski our sincere support and best wishes for a the family problem he is facing at this time and our prayers are with him at all moments as his beloved wife Trudi is under medical care. Don Majeski is one of the most passionate persons in our sport. He has been involved since he was a teenager and is considered to be one of most knowledgeable experts in the world but most importantly is a true friend, one who would take a bullet for my father and who is as dear as a brother to all in the Sulaiman family and the boxing world in general.

I embarked on a trip which has brought to me some of the nicest feelings in a long time. I first visited Buenos Aires, Argentina where I met so many “old” friends, so many persons who spent countless hours with my father and I listened to countless stories about the good times they all shared with Don Jose and the WBC family through out the years. My flight from Panama to Buenos Aires was a red eye which was supposed to land at 6am, we had to fly to Paraguay due to zero visibility forcing the airport to be closed in Argentina. I eventually arrived and was treated to a great lunch by Ruben Bartolome and Sampson Lewkowicz. The rest of the day was basically full of meetings with different groups, friends and champions.

Lanardo “The Pain Server” Tyner improved to (32-10-2, 20 KOs) with an exciting UD (78-73, 78-73, 77-74) win over Luis Florez (22-6-0). The 8 Round welterweight bout saw Florez dancing away from Tyner in the early rounds. Tyner was able to utilize his punches when he could corner Florez. The body work in the early rounds proved helpful as Florez slowed in the third. Both fighters traded power shots, toe-to-toe, in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th. These exchanges were beneficial to Tyner on the scorecards proving his better connections. Florez made things interesting as he was able to knock down Tyner in the sixth, as they traded blows. The head shot knocked Tyner down, but did not hurt him as he recovered quickly. The 7th and 8th had Florez, again, moving away from Tyner and no longer willing to go toe-to-toe. When Tyner was able to corner Florez, he unloaded. This win was much needed work for Tyner, he told the crowd afterwards.

Ernesto Garza (8-2-0, 5 KOs) won his bantamweight contest against Jesus Rojas (2-2-1, 1 KO) by TKO at the 2:34 mark of the first round. Garza scored three knockdowns, as he overmatched Rojas for the co-main event. (more…)

In an event that highlighted the loss of ‘club shows’ in New York State, Joe DeGuardia became the first promoter to run a such a professional boxing show in NY since August of last year.

“This was our 26th show at The Paramount and despite the virtually impossible restrictions placed on all of us because of these new laws in NY, we pulled it off,” said DeGuardia. “I made my point how important these types of shows are to our great sport and NYS.

Caferro knocks out Zeigler in Three

Story and Photos by Ricardo Ibarra

Helena, Montana’s Duran Caferro (16-1, 12 KOs) turned in a dominant performance on Saturday night at the Shrine Auditorium in Billings, Montana, knocking out Cheyenne Zeigler (3-13, 2 KOs), of Lower Brule, South Dakota in the super middleweight main event of Silver Wolf Fight Promotions’ “Magic City Fight Night.” Caferro used his superior skills to out-box Zeigler for two rounds before ending matters in the third with a vicious uppercut.

Using his longer reach and lateral movement, Caferro quickly set the range of the fight in the first round, jabbing at a distance and following up with quick straight rights. Caferro maintained a steady work-rate throughout the first round, keeping Zeigler on the outside and unable to cut the distance, instead catching hard counter shots as he made the effort to get in close. Late in the round a crisp jab rocked Zeigler back and slightly buckled his knees.
Caferro continued to work at a steady pace in the second, snapping his jab in his opponent’s face and mixing in solid hooks to the head and body. Zeigler did find some success in the round, connecting with a flush right hand as Caferro opened up, but that one shot was not enough to stifle the steady stream of offense from Caferro. (more…)

Abduqaxorov destroys Manyuchi to win WBC Silver welterweight title

WBC ABCO Silver 147lb title holder Qudratillo Abduqaxorov (11-0, 8 KOs) amazingly captured WBC Silver welterweight title as he destroyed WBC #6 and the former champion Charles Manyuchi (20-3-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at OCBC Arena in Singapore.

It seemed Manyuchi looked overconfident as he has much more experience than his Uzbek opponent who just turned pro about 17 months ago. So, he was sacrificed from his carelessness by a big uppercut following by a left hook which viciously dropped him to the canvas. Referee Raymond Chang gave him a chance but the fight belonged to Qudratillo who punished the former champion again with a tough right hook and finally scored a TKO at 2:56 of the opening round.

In other action, two-time IBO title holder, current WBA #2 lightweight Daud Yordan (37-3,25 KOs) destroyed Campee Singwancha (11-3, 7 KOs) with a vicious right hook and scored a one-punch KO at 2:13 of round two. (more…)

Linares was superb as he cruised through much of the fight with an impressive display of boxing skill and power. A precisely timed uppercut floored Crolla in the seventh. Moments later Linares nearly finished him with a flurry against the ropes. Crolla, however, would not go quietly. The Manchester native, perhaps spurned by his home crowd, bravely grew more aggressive in the second half of the fight. But Linares was simply too sharp, too fast and too comfortable for Crolla to overcome, winning 118-109 across the board.

Two EBU-EU titles were on the line in Helsinki, Finland on 25th March, as Juho Haapoja (28–7–2) beat Leonardo Bruzzese (17–3) for the cruiserweight title and Faroukh Kourbanov (13–0) topped Petteri Fröjdholm (11–1) for the super featherweight belt.

Juho Haapoja seized the cruiserweight title in a slugfest. The ever-aggressive Haapoja pushed forward and threw power punches from the opening bell, which seemed to intimidate the Italian. The taller Bruzzese tried to establish his jab in the second round but with little effect. Haapoja rattled his opponent with a hard overhand right at the end of the third and again in the fourth round, but Bruzzese shook it off and looked sharper in the fifth. (more…)
