Golovkin: I’m ready for Canelo, Canelo: No real competition at 160

Last week 155lb superstar Canelo Alvarez said he’s willing to fight middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin “in the future.”

Golovkin fired back at Canelo tonight. “No. Not for the future. I’m ready right now! I’m ready for Canelo and Cotto.”

Canelo then responded via Twitter, “When the day comes for me to move up to 160 I will face the best in the division. Sincerely and with humility I don’t see any real competition for me. Greetings to everyone!”

WBA and WBC Interim middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over Willie “The Mongoose” Monroe Jr. (19-2, 6 KOs) on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Golovkin dropped Monroe twice in round two, but Monroe survived the round. Southpaw Monroe fought back valiantly in the third, fourth and fifth rounds, landing repeatedly to the head of Golovkin. Golovkin upped the pressure in the sixth round and already had Monroe in serious trouble when he landed a hard left hook to the side of the head of Monroe to put him down for a 9 count. Monroe rose on unsteady legs and the referee mercifully called an end to the bout at 0:45 of the sixth round to make Golovkin the winner by TKO victory. It was the 20th consecutive KO by GGG.

Chocolatito annihilates Sosa

WBC flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (43-0, 37 KOs) scored a spectacular second round annihilation of #2 ranked challenger and former world champion Edgar Sosa (51-8, 30 KOs) on Saturday night at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Sosa looked overpowered from the beginning as Gonzales was landing his right cross repeatedly.

Gonzales put Sosa in the canvas early in the second round with a right for an eight count and down again with a left. Sosa, hurt, got up and tried to run to no avail as Gonzales caught him with another right to put him down hard. At 2:37, the referee called an end to the bout and Sosa was in no shape to continue.

Early Results from The Forum

By Rocky Morales at ringside

In a mostly anticlimatic scheduled eight round bout, Ivan Morales (28-0, 16KO) won a TKO victory over the limited Danny Flores (14-7-1, 8KO). Morales managed to further pad his record but failed to impress and while showing a facial resemblance he showed little resemblance to the fighting style of his older brother, Erik “El Terible” Morales. The first six rounds were dreadfully uneventful and the fight didn’t really begin until the two started exchanging hard shots in the seventh round. In what seemed like a very premature stoppage, after a couple of hard but not devastating blows, the referee called an end to the bout at 0:47 of the eighth round.

Pedro Duran (11-0-0, 8KO) scored a very late TKO victory over tough but overmatched Daniel Perales (5-2, 3KO) in a scheduled six round super featherweight bout. It was all Duran, who dropped Perales in the first round with a right cross and who won every round. Perales was not badly hurt at the time of the stoppage with the stoppage seeming more like a gift to Duran and the fans in attendance did not agree with the stoppage with just 10 seconds remaining in the bout.

In a woman’s six round super flyweight bout, Seniesa Estrada (4-0-0, 1KO) benefited from a 5th round knockdown of determined Carly Batey (4-5-2, 0KO) to win a close majority decision. Batey walked into a perfectly timed straight left counter and hit the deck but was not seriously hurt and fought hard until the final bell. Judges scored the bout 58-55 and 57-56 in favor of Estrada and 58-58 even.

In opening bout action from The Forum in Inglewood, CA, Ruslan Madiyev (5-0-0, 3KO) made short work of Julio Sanchez (1-2). After a dominating opening round that included a knockdown to the body of Sanchez, Madiyev landed a crushing right hand in the second round of a scheduled four round lightweight bout. The referee did not bother with a count and by way of knockout at 0:21 of the second round, Madiyev keeps his perfect record intact.

Makabu knocks out Mchunu in the 11th round

By Ron Jackson

In a closely fought and ill-tempered bout Ilunga Makabu from the Democratic Republic of the Congo knocked out Thabiso Mchunu of South Africa in the eleventh round of a WBC cruiserweight title eliminator at the International Convention Centre in Durban on Saturday night. Both fighters were warned throughout by referee Daniel van der Wiele of Belgium for low blows, pushing and a number of foul tactics.

In a battle of southpaws, after a quiet opening round Mchunu (90.18kg) dominated with his right jab through the next five rounds as he continuously jolted Makabu’s head back. However, from round seven Makabu (87.56kg) picked up the pace as the South African began tire rather drastically and was punished by the aggressive Makabu. In round eleven Makabu came on strongly before Mchunu was backed up against the ropes and dropped on his face with a left uppercut where he was counted out by the referee at 1 minute 56 seconds into the round.

Makabu improved his record to 19-1 with 18 KOs and Mchunu dropped to 17-2, 11 KOs. (more…)

WBA/WBC (interim) middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin’s reign of terror continues tonight against slick southpaw Willie Monroe Jr. (19-1, 6 KOs) tonight at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Golovkin (32-0, 29 KOs) is defending his world title for the 14th time. He has knocked out ALL of his previous challengers. Monroe, however may prove to be a tough customer.

The champ is looking forward to testing himself against Monroe’s style. “I want to fight a southpaw because I want to show everybody that I can beat any style, it doesn’t matter. Anybody, strong guy, tall guy, short guy, just anybody. I’m very anxious. This is a big test for me. I remember a lot of fighters, like Canelo, Cotto, and a lot of great champions have have problems with southpaws. So why not test myself?” (more…)

Results from Romney, Holyfield charity exhibition

By Doug Gibson at ringside

There were four professional boxing bouts Friday night at the Rail Event Center in Salt Lake City where Mitt Romney and Evander Holyfield sparred in a tongue-in-cheek bout for charity.

In an 8-round bout for the WBC North American lightweight title, Rashad Ganaway, 15-5-1, of Little Rock, Ark., used effective aggression to score a unanimous win over Huntington Beach, Calif.’s Leon Spinks III, 11-2.

Over 8 rounds, Aussie middleweight prospect Wes Capper, 10-1, used an aggressive style and harder punching to outpoint game but light-hitting Kenton Sippio-Cook, 6-2, of Austin, Texas.

In the best bout of the night, Salt Lake City super-middleweight Christian Nava, 3-5-1, scored a majority win over fellow Utahn Jordan Smith, 4-1. A knockdown in round two proved the difference for Nava, who garnered 38-37 scores twice, with another call at 38-38.

And Clearfield, Utah heavyweight Gary Cobia 3-3-2, continued to improve, winning a clear four-round decision over Fred Spitzenberg, 1-2, of Ogden, Utah. It was the third fight between the pair, with both swapping wins the first two times. In their third bout, Cobia floored Spitzenberg in round three and won with cards of 40-35 and 39-36 twice.

NSAC to come down hard on drug cheats

The Nevada State Athletic Commission today approved a “no tolerance” policy against fighters who fail tests for banned substances. Beginning September 1, penalties for steroid use will be severe. Suspensions will be three years, plus a hefty fine. Repeat offenders will receive a four year ban. Three strikes is a lifetime ban. Fines range from 50% to 100% of the athlete’s purse. Users of marijuana, diuretics or other substances face 18 month to two year suspensions and a fine of 30-40% of their purse for first offenders. Also results of fights will now be changed to a loss rather than a no-decision after a failed test. Fighters who don’t pay their fines will be suspended indefinitely, with the suspension recognized in all 50 states.
