Tyson Fury: The key to beating Klitschko is from a southpaw stance

By James Slater

The fight is by no means a done deal yet, but unbeaten Tyson Fury and his co-promoter Frank Warren are very hopeful and optimistic that Wladimir Klitschko will agree to make his next defense against Fury in September, possibly in the U.K. Of course, Wladimir, who turns 39-years of age later this month, must first come through against the determined and also unbeaten Bryant Jennings in April, but after that it could be Fury.

And the 6’9 giant who made easy work of Christian Hammer last night, often switching to the southpaw stance as he broke Hammer down for an 8th-round corner retirement win, says his southpaw abilities are the key to his beating Klitschko.

“I believe southpaw is the key because there’s not many heavyweights in the world who get southpaw sparring or anything like that,” Fury told The Manchester Evening News. “The key to beating Klitschko is from a southpaw stance. Corrie Sanders was a southpaw. Tony Thompson gave him problems – both times from a southpaw. Both of those guys were long range fighters, which I am – but they never had my inside game. It makes fights easy. The defence from southpaw is impregnable I believe.” (more…)

Ikeyama, 45, keeps WBO female 102lb belt

45-year-young energetic Japanese girl Nao Ikeyama (16-3-1, 4 KOs), 101.75, impressively kept her WBO 102-pound belt when she defeated Filipino Norj Guro (7-4-1, 4 KOs), 100.5, by a unanimous decision (99-91, 98-92 twice) over ten lopsided rounds on Saturday in Osaka, Japan. Ikeyama kept stalking and punching Guro all the way to score her second defense since her coronation in the previous year.

In a companion title go, WBO female 105-pound ruler Kumiko Seeser Ikehara (6-1-2, 3 KOs), 104.75, unsatisfactorily retained her title as she was held to a technical draw by Filipino challenger Jessebelle Pagaduan (7-1-1, 4 KOs), 103.75, at the end of the opening session due to the champ’s horizontal two-inch cut on the forehead caused by an accidental butt in the closing seconds of the round. It was the 30-year-old Ikehara’s initial defense since she acquired the vacant championship last year. (more…)

Wake keeps OPBF 115lb belt by icing Paypa in one

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

WBC#3/WBA#2/IBF#6/WBO#15 Japanese southpaw Shingo Wake (18-4-2, 11 KOs), 122, quickly kept his OPBF super-bantam belt as he made short work of Filipino lefty Jimmy “Popeye” Paypa (16-3-1, 6 KOs), 121.25, at 2:59 of the first round on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. Wake, a tall southpaw, registered his fifth defense, all by knockout, since he dethroned previously unbeaten Yukinori Oguni via TKO route two years ago. Making a shaky start as usual as he took some opening shots of Paypa in the opening session, Wake exploded a right uppercut to the button of the game Filipino, who badly went down and failed to beat the count of the referee Fukuchi. The too quick annihilation stunned the crowd so greatly that they couldn’t evaluate how strong Paypa was. Wake jubilantly said, “I’d like to win a world belt within this year.” Paypa’s unbeaten streak for nearly five years halted only in less than three minutes at the Hall.

Results from Syracuse, NY

By Boxing Bob Newman at ringside

JKJ Championship promotions staged their fourth “Finding The Next Champion” card in ten months featuring local Syracuse and neighboring Geneva, NY talent against a variety of imports. Syracuse’s Martez “The Punisher” Potter ground out a tough six round decision over frustrating Ahmed Tuba in a middleweight clash.

Syracuse’s Martez “The Punisher” Potter took on Nazareth, Israel’s Ahmed Tuba in the six round middleweight main event. For much of the first five rounds, there appeared to be more feinting, jawing, taunting, holding and flailing about than there were solidly landed punches. The bad blood between these two escalated in the second as Potter suffered a cut to his left cheek bone via a clash of heads. Referee Charlie Fitch warned both fighters to display good sportsmanship and to shut their mouths. Neither seemed comfortable leading and Potter often taunted Tuba to stand and fight. Things got wilder in the fifth and sixth with punches landing and both fighters going for broke. In the end, it was a close affair with all three judges agreeing at 58-56 for Potter. The Punisher moves to 7-0, 1 KO while Tuba falls to 1-3. (more…)

Bauwens defeats Portailler

Jean Pierre Bauwens Junior had to dig deep to retain his EBU-EU lightweight title at the Ghelamco football stadium of AA Gent against French Yoann Portailler in one of the best fights seen in recent years on a Belgian ring.
The visitor started strong as he was too quick for Bauwens. Bauwens started to take over from the middle rounds when Portailler started to fade. The result looked much closer then the official scorecards show with twice 117-111 and a 119-109.
On the undercard reigning WBC female lightweight champion Delfine Persoon had a non title bout stopping in the last half minute of the contest Florence Muthoni from Kenya. Muthoni was too brave and under constant pressure from the opening bell. In the last last she was staggering backwards from another blitzering attack from Persoon and the referee decided he had seen enough and wisely called it off.
Joel Tambwe Djeko proved too mmuch to handle even for the vastly experienced Ismael Abdoul. Abdoul was cut over the right eye from an accidental headbutt but cornerman Ronny Vaneesvelde did a marvelous job to keep the cut under control till the end of the bout. It was scored 78-74, 79-75 and 77-75 all for Tambwe.

Promoter Ahmet Oner, for years the most loyal and supportive backer in the disappointing career of former amateur standout Odlanier Solis, finally lashed out after the Cuban boxer’s dismal performance in his TKO9 loss in a rematch opportunity against Tony “The Tiger” Thompson. “I have wasted a lot of time, nerves and money on Solis,” said Oner. “He has all the talent in the world but he just blew it. I cannot believe how bad he looked today. He is a shame for Cuban boxing. The guy is done. And I’m done with him. He’s still under contract with me but today he made the step from contender to journeyman. I will throw him to the wolves and feed every young and hungry prospect with him who is ready to pay some money.”

“Tony looked good and got the job done”, added Oner. “I have options on him and I am sure that I will be able to land some more big fights for him. He will jump up in the ratings. There are some guys up there constantly looking for trouble. I think Tony still is a serious threat to numerous contenders. I don’t know what Manuel Charr has lined up but he keeps on calling out everybody. That might be an interesting option. We’ll see what’s next.” (more…)

Thompson defeats Solis again

By Karl Freitag

In a rematch, heavyweight Tony “The Tiger” Thompson (40-5, 27 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over former Olympic gold medalist Odlanier Solis (20-3, 13 KOs) on Friday night at the Gloria Sports Hotel in Antalya, Turkey. Thompson outworked Solis throughout the fight and got the win when Solis quit at the start of round nine. The 272lb Solis actually got off to a good start, but quickly ran out of gas. Thompson won the vacant WBC Continental Americas heavyweight title.

Thompson entered the fight rated WBC #14, while Solis was rated WBC #15. Eleven months ago, Thompson defeated Solis by split decision. Now at age 43, Thompson looks headed toward another meaningful fight, while the boxing future of the 34-year-old Solis is in serious doubt.
