Sergio ‘Maravilla’ Martinez decides to continue boxing career

After lengthy discussions with members of his team, now-former WBC Middleweight Champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez has decided to continue his boxing career. Determined to return and erase the terrible memory of what happened against fellow-great Miguel Cotto in June, 39-year-old Martinez will next face a top-10 contender with the goal of recapturing his world title.

“Miguel De Pablos (Business Manager) and I met with Sergio at his home in Madrid and he says he is 100% healthy and ready to do what it takes to return to the very top of boxing,” said Martinez advisor Sampson Lewkowicz.

Lewkowicz says Martinez will first undergo a full battery of head-to-toe testing from top specialists in New York, but pending full medical clearance, the former champion will be returning to the ring on a mission. (more…)

Cayetano paints masterpiece, “Cobrita Jr” returns to winning ways

Promotions Zanfer and Mayen forgot that the major league Tijuana soccer team, Xolos, as well as a popular pro wrestling card was scheduled for down the street, so suffered from a weak turnout to what turned out to be an entertaining thirteen fight bout card set at the Tecate Box Tour located in the parking lot of the Caliente Racetrack. In the main event, Tijuana bantamweight Jose “Tigre” Cayetano (17-2, 8KO) put together a masterful performance against hard hitting Dennis “Martillo” Contreras (19-3, 18KO) of Guadalajara, Mexico, in an eight round scheduled bout.

Two of Maryland’s hottest prospects continued their winning ways in front of a sellout, standing-room-only crowd during a Keystone Boxing crowd at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD.

Springdale junior middleweight “The Cuban Assassin” Larry Recio won a gritty six-round unanimous decision over a very tough Grayson Blake of State College, PA. For the second straight contest, Recio faced an opponent that he couldn’t completely overpower. Recio scored a knockdown in the third round because of pressure. However, Blake stayed in the bout and challenged Recio by landing solid left hands repeatedly. (more…)

Tete acquires vacant IBF 115lb belt in Japan

By Joe Koizumi

Elongated southpaw Zolati Tete (20-3, 16 KOs), 114, from South Africa, easily acquired the vacant IBF super-flyweight belt as he stuck southpaw jabs all night, whipped previously unbeaten ex-Japanese champ Teiru Kinoshita (19-1-1, 3 KOs), 115, and scored a very unanimous decision on Friday in Kobe, Japan. It was a monotonously one-sided affair with Tete outjabbing the hometowner without Kinoshita’s retaliation. Probably even Tete hadn’t expected such an easy and lopsided victory before the contest, as Kinoshita was just a disappointment that showed nothing throughout the bout.

Official tallies: Chris Flores and Deon Dwarte (both US) both 118-110, and Katsuhiko Nakamura 119-109, all in favor of the much more effective Tete. Referee was David Fields (US). (more…)

September 13 at the MGM those two fighters are going to determine who the best is.

Undefeated unified junior featherweight world champion and Cuban sensation Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (13-0, 8 KOs), of Miami, Florida, has promised to provide “a lot of fireworks” when he defends his titles against Top-Five contender and two-time world title challenger Sod Looknongyantoy (63-2-1, 27 KOs), of Srithep, Thailand, on Saturday at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena. Rigondeaux will need them if he is to derail the “Looknongyantoy Express,” who enters this fight riding a nine-year, 37-bout unbeaten streak.

Guillermo Rigondeaux: “I had a 10-week training camp with George Rubio where we focused on honing my combinations and power punching. I am taking nothing for granted with Looknongyantoy. He has an impressive record and he is a smart fighter.

“I intend to give UniMás and its boxing audience a great show. I plan to be more aggressive to be more impressive. But let me make this clear, I have been a world champion and an Olympic gold medalist for one reason – I do not make mistakes in the ring. I fight my fight, not my opponents’ fights.
