WBC in Thieu, Belgium: Teffahi and Nikharkhoev win

Tonight at the Centre sportif des ascenseurs at Thieu Belgium Islam Teffahi retained his WBC Francophone title and added the WBC Silver Intl title to his collection with a close but deserved majority decision over local Sheldon Moore.
Moore started very confident and won the first 4 rounds but Teffahi, seemingly a slow starter came back into the fight from the 5rd on. After 8 round all judges had it level at 76-76. Moore looked very tired and was warned several times for clinching. Teffahi was still very accurate and mobile winning the rounds. At the final bell it was scored 114-114 by Verwijs. But was outvoted by Silvi with 115-113 and Pobyvailo 116-113 for defending champion Teffahi.
Timur Nikarkhoev had a cautious start but from the 2nd he dominated his opponent Ramazi Gogichasvili scoring to face and body with both hands. After a huge 5th round for the young Timur Nikarkhoev the Georgian visitor did not come out for round 6.

Marco Huck-Ola Afolabi IV next February

By James Slater

London-born cruiserweight warrior Ola Afolabi, 22-4-4(11) has announced on social media how he will tackle familiar foe Marco Huck for a fourth time next February, once again in Germany. The fight is set for Feb. 27th in Halle, Germany. The fourth clash between the two will contest the IBO belt, currently the property of 35-year-old Afolabi.

“We’re off to Germany to fight Marco Huck for the fourth time. I guess he’s not too fond of fighting outside of his hometown. Just a job to me. I’ll fight him on the moon,” Afolabi wrote on his FaceBook page yesterday.

This time, it will be Afolabi who will enter the ring as the defending (IBO) champion. Back in 2009, 2012 and 2013, Huck was the defending WBO cruiserweight champ and he won decisions over Afolabi in the first and third fights, picking up a 12-round draw in the second meeting. All three fights were tough, hard encounters, with both men pushing themselves to the limit. Now, Afolabi hopes his fourth shot at Huck will prove victorious. (more…)

Boxing Notes

By Karl Freitag

The much-anticipated announcement of Manny Pacquiao’s next opponent during Friday night’s truTV telecast never happened. Pacman isn’t ready to choose his next opponent just yet.

Scale woes: Former lightweight champion Omar Figueroa weighed a whopping 11 pounds over the jr welterweight limit for today’s showdown with Antonio DeMarco in San Antonio, Texas.

More scale woes: Current WBA interim jr welterweight champion Jose Benevidez Jr weighed 5.4 pounds over the limit for a non-title bout scheduled in the welterweight division tonight in Tucson. That’s 12.4 pounds over his fighting weight.

Tempers flared in Denmark when super middleweights Patrick Nielsen and Rudy Markussen had to be restrained when a shoving match threatened to escalate.

During Friday’s weigh-in in London, heavyweight Dillian Whyte turned his back toward archrival Anthony Joshua during their face-off. But Whyte was one-upped by middleweight Gary O’Sullivan. During his face-off with Chris Eubank Jr, O’Sullivan leaned over and kissed Eubank on the lips!

We have another marathon fight card tonight in Texas! 15 bouts are scheduled and that’s after the late cancellation of a scheduled heavyweight ten rounder between Charles Martin and Dominic Breazeale.

The Oscar De La Hoya Foundation will host its 19th Annual Toy Giveaway today at Oscar De La Hoya Ánimo Charter High School in East LA. Oscar will be joined by boxers Antonio “Relentless” Orozco, Frankie “Pit Bull” Gomez, Diego De La Hoya, Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez, Abraham “Chamaco” Lopez, Chinese heavyweight sensation Taisha, Ivan “Striker” Delgado, and Oscar “El Jaguar” Negrete, as they help distribute thousands of toys to pre-selected children in the East Los Angeles community.

Ex-Champ Hasegawa defeats Mexican Ruiz; Tada wins Vacant IBF Female 105lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

Formerly two-time world champ, Japanese southpaw Hozumi Hasegawa (35-5, 15 KOs), 127, came off the canvas twice and fought back very hard to earn a close but unanimous decision (96-93, 95-93, 95-94) over fast-punching Mexican, WBO#5 super-feather Carlos Ruiz (14-2, 5 KOs), 126, over ten hard-fought give-and-take rounds on Friday in Kobe, Japan. Winning the first two sessions with ease, Hasegawa might feel it wouldn’t be a tough night, but the fact wasn’t what he felt out. The closing seconds of the third witnessed Ruiz explode a smashing right to the button of the Japanese speedster, who badly hit the deck and resumed fighting to be fortunately saved by the bell. Though Hasegawa dominated the fourth, he went back to the canvas with a same straight right to the chin in the fifth. But Hasegawa fought back hard to win round after round from the sixth, utilizing his hand speed, shifty mobility and counterpunching. Ruiz, an intelligent student of Mexican Institute of Technology (Mexican MIT), occasionally attempted to score the same right to the puzzling lefty for the third time, but Hasegawa displayed his experience of having kept his WBC bantam belt ten times and having acquired the WBC feather throne in showing a last surge with a flurry of punches in the final session. Hasegawa said, “I took just a couple of punches from Ruiz, but they made me hit the canvas twice. Except that, I completely controlled the fight.” Ruiz said, “I admit it’s a close fight, but I thought I won. Though he threw more combinations, I blocked them to nullify his busy punches.” (more…)

Boxing back in Toronto tonight

Boxing returns to Toronto tonight at the Mattamy Events Center with the second promotional event presented by local businessman Lee Baxter. Baxter’s debut show took place this past August. “We had a good draw the first time around. I wasn’t surprised as Toronto fans are very passionate about sports. I will do my part to continue that trend for fans with boxing in Toronto,” said Baxter, whose famed tattoo parlor FY Ink’s celebrity client list includes such names as Justin Bieber, Drake, NBA basketball star Chris Bosh, and many more.

The main event will feature local favorite Samuel Vargas (22-2-1, 12 KOs) taking on Robson Assis (15-1, 8 KOs). It’s scheduled for 10 rounds with the WBA-NABA interim welterweight title on the line. The co-feature will have unbeaten Brandon Brewer (16-0-1, 8 KOs) vs local favorite Junmar Emon (6-2, 2KOs) in an 8 round junior middleweight bout. Also lightweight Mario Perez (18-7-4, 11 KOs) faces Joel Montes de Oca (18-4, 10 KOs) in an eight round bout.

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Trainer Kevin Barry has been doing a great job with heavyweight contender Joseph Parker, but Barry also high on another heavyweight: WBO #15 heavyweight Izuagbe Ugonoh (15-0, 12 KOs) who stopped Mexico’s Vicente Sanchez (15-5, 10 KO’s) in one round of a scheduled ten round bout at Hamilton, New Zealand last Saturday. Ugonoh, 6’5, was born in Szczecin, Poland in 1986 and is now based in Las Vegas, living with Barry and Parker.

“Izu is a tremendous talent,” said Barry. “A former world kickboxing champion. I first met him in Las Vegas when he came to spar with Joseph Parker. He was training with different trainers and not getting any fights – he had no direction. He came to see me – I had a very good thing going with Joseph – I wanted to be careful that if I was going to bring someone into our training camp and into my house that they had to have the right chemistry and be the right person. Things have worked out incredibly well. Izu had his first fight for me in October of 2014 and has had six fights in New Zealand and now rated WBO #15. He is a very gifted athlete with very long arms. I’m excited about Izu and attribute much of the rise and success of Joseph Parker to the day to day training with Izu.”
