Unbeaten WBA #7 bantamweight Luis “Panterita” Nery (19-0, 13 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Martín “Pini” Casillas (15-7-1, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Gimnasio “Juan de la Barrera” in Mexico City. Nery dropped Casillas twice en route to a 100-88, 99-89, 98-90 verdict.

In the co-feature, WBO #1 lightweight José “Chon” Zepeda (25-1, 21 KOs) pounded out a workmanlike ten round unnaimous decision over veteran Pedro “Vaquero” Navarrete (29-22-3, 18 KOs). Scores were 98-92, 97-92 and 97-92.

WBC featherweight champion “Mr.” Gary Russell Jr. (27-1, 16 KOs) annihilated Patrick “The Punisher” Hyland (31-2, 15 KOs) in two rounds on Saturday night in the Fox Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Russell knocked down Hyland three times in round two to end it. Time was 1:33.

In an exciting twelve round bout, Puerto Rican world champion Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (22-0, 12 KOs) outslugged #1 contender Stephen “Swifty” Smith (23-2, 13 KOs) to retain the IBF jr. lightweight title. Pedraza controlled most of the fight, dropping Smith with a right hook in the ninth round, but Smith rallied to survive. Pedraza dominated the early portion of the fight, but Smith had moments in rounds four and five, and again in eleven and twelve where he landed his own 1-2 combinations. Smith began timing the champion mid-way through the fight, but couldn’t sustain enough of an attack to win rounds over Pedraza. Overall, it was an impressive victory for DiBella’s IBF titleholder, who showed grit and adversity against a tough and capable opponent. Scores were 117-110, 116-111, 116-111.

Verdejo, Diaz victorious in Puerto Rico

Undefeated Puerto Rican rising star Felix “El Diamante” Verdejo (21-0, 14 KOs) scored a hard fought ten round unanimous decision over Jose Luis Rodriguez (18-9, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Verdejo dominated with sharp punches early on. Rugged brawler Rodriguez had his moments as the bout progressed, but he also often found himself fending off the violent assaults of the stronger, faster Verdejo. In the end, scores were 99-91, 99-91, 98-92. Verdejo successfully made the fourth defense of his WBO Latino lightweight title.

In a clash between unbeaten featherweights, Puerto Rico’s Christopher “Pitufo” Diaz (16-0, 10 KOs) kept his “0” by defeating Ray Ximenez (13-1, 3 KOs) of Dallas, Texas, over eight entertaining rounds. Scores were 78-74, 77-75, 80-72. The 21-year-old Diaz claimed the WBO Youth title.

In his Top Rank debut, featherweight Jean Carlos “Chapito” Rivera (6-0, 3 KOs) remained unbeaten with a six round unanimous decision over Harold Reyes (2-4-1, 0 KOs). Scores were 58-54, 58-54, 57-55.

Rising star and 2012 U.S. Olympian welterweight Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. (20-0, 17 KOs) scored an impressive fifth round KO over former world champion Chris Algieri (21-3, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Spence battered Algieri from the get-go, dropping him in round four and finishing him with two more knockdowns in round five. Time was :48.

Unbeaten WBO cruiserweight champion Krzysztof “Head” Glowacki (26-0, 16 KOs) retaimed his twitle with a twelve round unanimous decision over former two-time cruiserweight world champion Steve “U.S.S.” Cunningham (28-8, 13 KOs). Glowacki floored Cunningham twice in round two, but Cunningham recovered and fought back well. Glowacki put Cunningham on the deck again in round ten. A desperate Cunningham went for broke in round twelve, but got caught and dropped again. Scores were 116-108, 115-109, 115-109.

In a clash of unbeaten light heavyweights, 2012 U.S. Olympian and hometown favorite “Sir” Marcus Browne (18-0, 13 KOs) won a questionable eight round split decision over Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic (21-1, 14 KOs). Browne was credited with a gift knockdown after a Kalajdzic slip, then was doubly fortunate that he wasn’t deducted a point for hitting Kalajdzic when he was on the canvas. Kalajdzic rocked Browne in round four and knocked him down in round six. In the end, scores were 76-74, 76-75 Browne, 76-74 Kalajdzic.

By Jason Marchetti at ringside

Former world champion “Bad” Chad Dawson (34-4, 19 KO’s) returned to his home state to TKO Cornelius White (23-5, 17 KOs) in the fourth round in a bout at light heavyweight on the undercard of Gary Russell, Jr. vs. Patrick Hyland at the Fox Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT. A right hand to the temple wobbled White and brought him to the ropes, while Dawson finished him off with a dozen wide power shots before the ref stopped the fight. White protested the stoppage but he had on earmuffs and was not throwing any punches from the corner. Once considered the best in the division, Dawson no longer finds himself on the top ten of any major sanctioning body. He was impressive tonight and did what was expected against an opponent with far less pedigree. (more…)

Off-TV Results From Brooklyn

By Arvin Nundloll and John DiSanto at ringside

Brooklyn female featherweight star Heather Hardy (16-0, 4 KOs) kept her unbeaten record intact with a fourth round TKO over Swedish opponent Anna Hultin (8-3, 2 KOs) in round four of their scheduled eight rounder. Hardy faced a more athletic and taller opponent in Hultin, meaning that she needed to keep the action inside the pocket. The first few rounds had Hultin picking away at Hardy with her reach but failing to stop Hardy from advancing inside and getting her body shots in. The third round saw Hardy unleash a volley of hooks, catching Hultin with an overhand right and opened up her nose to create problems for Hultin’s breathing. During the fourth round, Hultin appeared to sustain a shoulder injury and turned away, forcing the referee to consult the doctor at ringside for a diagnosis. Having received confirmation that the right shoulder was preventing her from fighting the referee stopped the fight. The time of the stoppage at 2:48 in round four.

San Antonio lightweight Mario Barrios pitched an eight round shutout against veteran Edgar Gabejan of the Philippines to push his record to 15-0, 8 KOs. Barrios scored a flash knockdown in the first round and dominated the rest of the fight. All three official scores were 80-71. Gabejan fell to 26-33-6, 9 KOs. (more…)

Hall beats Guerrero in IBF bantam eliminator; Warrington defeats Amagasa

In an IBF bantamweight final eliminator, #4 ranked former world champion Stuart Hall (20-4-2, 7 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over #3 Rodrigo Guerrero (24-6-1, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, England. Hall got off to a good start behind his jab. Guerrero was cut over the right eye eye. Guerrero started coming on in round four with effective bodywork and it was a close scrap thereafter. Scores were 117-111 on all three cards. As often is the case, judges seemingly ignored body punches.

In the main event, WBC International featherweight champion Josh Warrington (23-0, 4 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Hisashi Amagasa (30-6-2, 20 KOs). Warrington, rated WBC #2, IBF #7, WBA #10, was sharp early. The much taller WBC #13 Amagasa, best known for dropping Guillermo Rigondeaux twice 16 months ago, seemingly won many of the middle rounds. Warrington landed some good head shots in round ten. Amagasa was bleeding heavily from a cut over his right eye in round eleven. In the end, scores were 117-111, 118-111, and a ridiculous 120-107.

Adames wins WBA Fedelatin title

By Robert Coster

The Dominican Republic’s hottest current prospect, welterweight Carlos Adames (8-0, 7 KOs), won the WBA Fedelatin title on Friday in impressive fashion scoring a fourth round TKO victory over veteran Patrick Lopez (23-7, 14 KOs) in Santo Domingo. The fight was a short but brutal slugfest with both boxers landing bombs from the opening bell. Adames floored Lopez in the first round, but the hardy, courageous veteran got back on his feet and went after his younger foe. The toe to toe war continued in rounds two and three, but the youth, size and power of Adames gradually took their toll on the Venezuelan visitor whose face turned into a bloody mask, forcing the referee to step in at 2:59 of the 4th round.

Lucas Browne passes lie detector test

Hatton Promotions has announced that WBA heavyweight champion Lucas Browne has passed an independent polygraph test, thus proving he did not knowingly or intentionally place banned substances including the drug clenbuterol into his system ahead of his world title victory against Ruslan Chagaev.

Lucas Browne: “I am pleased that the polygraph test confirmed that I am telling the truth. The result is not a surprise to me as I have always said I am a clean athlete, I know I arrived in Grozny a clean athlete and I know I did nothing wrong when I was there. It should never be forgotten that I requested the VADA testing for the fight. Whilst the result is not a surprise to me, I consider this test another step towards proving my innocence. I remain grateful for the ongoing support of the public, my manager and my promoter. Together we are fighting this injustice.”

Ricky Hatton: “I have been saying since it happened I am 100 per cent behind Lucas. The whole thing just doesn’t stack up. The results of the lie detector test don’t surprise me at all. Lucas knows he didn’t do it, I know he didn’t do it and now we have a test conducted by experts that confirms he is telling the truth. We will keep going and do all that we can do to prove his innocence. Matters are in the hands of the lawyers and the WBA. I and the whole of boxing hope they do the right thing by Lucas. Boxing needs that to happen to maintain its credibility. The public is behind Lucas because they know the truth as well.”

The exciting clash between super welterweight brawlers Jesus “Renuente” Soto Karass (29-10-4, 18 KO) and Yoshihiro “Maestrito” Kamegai (26-4-2, 23 KO) definitely lived up to the hype on Friday night at The Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Golden Boy is already talking about a rematch.

Jesus Soto Karass: “This fight was a war, exactly what the fans expected. The people truly won tonight. I felt really good in the ring, but Kamegai was a true, Japanese warrior. I feel we both delivered an exciting night of boxing.”

Yoshihiro Kamegai: “I’m still getting used to the time zone here, but I feel really good about my performance tonight. Soto Karass did catch me a few times, but every time he did, he was met with my counterpunches. Soto Karass was the kind of fighter I was expecting to fight – a true warrior.”

Potapov-Young draw, Menard scores brutal KO

Story and photos by Boxing Bob Newman at ringside

Former Light Welterweight contender turned promoter, Dmitriy “Star of David” Salita put on an entertaining six bout card at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York, just down the road from Canastota’s International Boxing Hall of Fame. The card was part of Showtime network’s popular Shobox series which features young contenders looking to reach championship level and several fighters on tonight’s card may have done just that with their showings.

The NABA bantamweight title remained vacant as fellow undefeateds Nikolay Potopov and Stephon “Show Stopper” Young battled to a majority ten round draw in the Shobox main event. Potopov came in at 14-0, 6 KOs while Young was almost identical at 14-0-2, 6 KOs. While Potopov appeared to be the busier fighter, utilizing the jab, Young looked to land the single, harder shots and did so on occasion. (more…)

It was bombs away from the opening bell with both fighters having their moments. Scores were 97-93 Kamagai, 96-94 Soto Karass, 95-95. Rematch anyone?

Unbeaten light heavyweight Vyacheslav “Lion Heart-Chigonsky” Shabranskyy (16-0, 13 KOs) was victorious when Derrick “Superman” Findley (23-19-1, 15 KOs) didn’t come out for round four. Shabransky boxed patiently keeping his distance from the shorter Findley. In round three, the Ukrainian dropped Findley with a crunching left to the body.

WBA heavyweight champ Lucas Browne fights to clear his name after doping allegation

By Grantlee Kieza

Australia’s WBA world heavyweight boxing champion Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne is trying to clear his name and keep his title after testing positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol following his historic victory over Ruslan Chagaev in the Russian territory of Chechnya on March 5. Clenbuterol is a fat stripping agent used by bodybuilders but it can also be fed to cattle to improve the quality of their meat. On Friday, testers from the Las Vegas-based Voluntary Anti-Doping Association plan to open Browne’s B Sample of urine taken after his fight.

Hand on heart can you saying you definitely did not take any dodgy substances before your fight — even in supplements or sports drinks?

I didn’t take anything. I made sure of it. We were actually the ones who demanded independent testers. I made sure that I had nothing at all in my system. I was taking pre-workout drinks long before the fight but nothing illegal and I made sure that I had stopped taking them long before we went to Chechnya. I had a random blood and urine test five days before the fight and there was absolutely nothing in my system. Why would I then take Clenbuterol which is going to make my heart go triple speed and make me tremble and stuff before a 12-round world title fight? It just doesn’t make any sense. (more…)
