WBA champ Walters plans to settle score with Marriaga

By Robert Coster

HBO announced it officially. On June 13th at the Madison Square Theatre WBA featherweight “super” champion Nicholas “the Axeman” Walters (25-0, 21 KOs) will square off against Colombian phenom Miguel “The Scorpion” Marriaga (20-0, 18 KOs) in an explosive matchup between the two unbeaten KO artists. Walters holds a grudge against Marriaga, who thwarted his Olympic dreams by beating him (via 14-9 decision) at the pre-Olympic trials in 2008. The 27 year-old Colombian, a “big” (5’7 1/2), brawny featherweight like Walters, is considered by many pundits to be a hidden gem in the talent-filled 126lb class. In his only appearance in the United States in October of 2014, Marriaga was extremely impressive, scoring a six round stoppage of wily contender Christopher Martin. Of his 18 KO victories in 20 fights, Marriaga has 13 KOs in three rounds or less.

For his part, “the Axeman” Walters hasn’t fought since his brutal demolition of Nonito Donaire last year. The Jamaican-born champion told Fightnews that he is eagerly looking for a payback against his Colombian challenger. “Yes, he did beat me in 2008 but that was seven years ago and in the amateurs. Come June 13th, I’m settling the score with Miguel.”

WBC female mini-flyweight champ Yuko Kuroki (13-4-1, 6 KOs), 104.75, a Japanese southpaw, kept her belt for the second time when she outscored compatriot Masae Akitaya (9-6-2, 3 KOs), 105, by a unanimous decision (97-92 twice and 98-92) over ten hot rounds on Sunday in Toyonaka, Japan. Akitaya, in her fourth attempt to win the world belt, took the initiative with her aggressiveness in earlier rounds, but Kuroki found her rhythm and range to overcome her early deficits on points and had the leadoff down the stretch. The referee was Stephen Blea (US) who handled busy exchanges of the Japanese girls who temporarily forgot their usual friendship and swapped punches all the way. (more…)

Canelo: This was one of the best KOs of my career

In front of more than 31,000 raucous fans Minute Maid Park in Houston, super welterweight star Canelo Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) knocked out all action brawler James “Mandingo Warrior” Kirkland (32-2, 28 KOs) with a thunderous right hand in the middle of the third-round.

Canelo Alvarez: “This was one of the best knockouts of my career. He came out with a little bit of a different style than I was expecting, but I was able to adjust and get the knockout. I knew he was strong fighter but he surprised me with his aggressiveness in the first and second round. I fight for the fans, and I’ll fight anyone, anywhere, anytime.”

James Kirkland: “I didn’t know I was knocked out. I had him trapped and hurt in the corner in the first round but he escaped, I had him hurt in the second also. He’s a great champion, I’m proud that I was able to compete in such a terrific event, and I hope to fight him again someday. I’m a warrior, I’ll be back.”

Unbeaten 2012 Olympian super lightweight Jose Ramirez (14-0, 11 KOs) scored a spectacular fifth round KO over veteran “Red Hot” Rob Frankel (33-16-1, 6 KOs) on Saturday night before a crowd of 10,000+ at the Selland Arena in Fresno, California. Ramirez launched a non-stop fusillade of punches from the opening bell. Frankel hung tough until a left hook to the body in round five put him on the deck for the count. Time was 2:18.

“I have a lot of Mexican blood in me and like go right to a body attack,” said Ramirez. “I got a big hook onto Frankel in the first round then Freddie (Roach) in my corner told me to get more distance, then attack with body shots. That worked. This was a great win before our hometown fans.”

Frankel said “Ramirez got me with a hard hook in the first round. He got it in deep and it hurt, bothering me for the rest of the fight. He’s a good young fighter.”

Figueroa: I felt ridiculously strong at the new weight

Omar Figueroa: “Fighting a fight like that, it takes a lot to go even four rounds, much less 12. With a fighter like that, leaning on you and using his weight on you it’s tough. I’m just glad I was in shape and didn’t let my fans down. I’m a very offensive fighter, so the holding kind of slowed me down. I tried to do what I could and, thankfully, the judges saw that. My hands are a little sore, but I really did hold back on my punches, especially because he has one of those European guards where he holds his hands up high and his elbows are exposed. I had to be careful going to the body because that’s how I hurt my hands most times, from hitting the elbows. I felt ridiculously strong at the new weight, but I didn’t think my hands would hold up, so I was holding back and trying to win the fight on points and if I could hurt him I would try to stop him. He was punching me behind the head, so I felt like I had to do the same. If you want to play like that, I can play that game.”

Ricky Burns: “We knew it was going to be a tough fight, but I didn’t agree with the deductions for holding. I thought he was holding as much as me and that’s why I had to tie him up. We moved up in weight for this one but still had some trouble making weight, but I didn’t want to jeopardize my chance to fight in America. I think it was his size that gave me problems more than anything. I don’t know what weight he was in that ring, but it was a lot bigger than me.”

Kameda: I think I won the fight

“I think I won the fight,” said former world champion Tomoki Kameda after coming up just short against WBA regular “bantam” king Jamie McDonnell. “I did enough to win. He did a lot to win the last rounds, but I did more over the fight. I don’t agree with the judges decision, but I respect it. I knew he would get up after the knockdown because he’s a world champion. He’s a great fighter and I take my hat off to him, but I won the fight. I want a rematch.”

McDonnell stated, “I felt in control all the way through. It was a great performance. I know I should have just boxed but I wanted to fight. I didn’t think I was going to get the decision being abroad, but it’s more than spectacular to come out of here victorious. He’s a great, undefeated champion.

“His speed surprised me on the knockdown. I knew he was going to be fast, but I didn’t expect it like that. I didn’t see the shot and next thing I knew I was on the floor….I think I’m going to move up in weight. I want to catch the big fights before they’re gone.”

“It was my first professional bout here in Frankfurt and winning here was very important to me,” said Culcay. “The crowd gave me the proper support to get it done.” As far as his immediate plans for the future, Culcay made a wish: “If there is the opportunity to fight for a world title, I want it to happen on my birthday, September 26.”

Ex-champ Hasegawa defeats unbeaten WBC #9 Garcia

By Joe Koizumi

Formerly two-time world champ, Japanese southpaw Hozumi Hasegawa (34-5, 15 KOs), 125.75, proved too fast and ringwise for previously unbeaten WBC #9 super-bantam Horacio Garcia (29-1, 21 KOs), 125.5, from Mexico, winning a unanimous decision (97-93, 98-93 and 100-91) over ten Tom-and-Jerry rounds on Saturday in Kobe, Japan. Having suffered a seemingly career-ending stoppage by Spaniard Kiko Martinez in a quest of the IBF 122-pound throne in April of the previous year, Hasegawa, ex-WBC bantam and feather titlist, might have hung up gloves for good then and there, but he gallantly returned to ring warfare against people’s expectations for his second life after a retirement.

Full Report: Mansour outduels Dawejko

By Kurt Wolfheimer and John Disanto at ringside

The sellout crowd at the 2300 Arena was abuzz in Philadelphia PA Friday night awaiting what appeared to be a can’t miss heavyweight slugfest as two heavyweight knockout artists, Amir “Hardcore” Mansour and Joey “The Tank” Dawejko battled it out over ten rounds for the PA state title on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights. Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, as two headbutts forced the fight to become a more of a tactical battle with Mansour (22-1, 16 KOs) notching the ten round unanimous decision victory over Joey Dawejko (14-4-2, 7 KOs) by scores of 96-94, 97-93 and 98-92 respectively.

“Joey was a tough fighter and I have to give him credit,” said Mansour afterward. “He hit me with a couple of good shots, but his power wasn’t as strong as everybody said it was. He never had me buzzed…the cut that happened in the second, caused me trouble seeing throughout the fight. I knew the referee wouldn’t do anything about it so I had to suck it up and box behind the jabs and combinations.

“It has been frustrating because everybody above me in the rankings is afraid to fight me,” continued Mansour. “They either won’t take the fight or price themselves out of the fight. I hope a promoter gets behind me and finds me the shot I deserve.” (more…)

Results From Toledo

By Lindy Lindell

Inactive for two years, local favorite Masedonio “Nune” Molina, now twenty pounds heavier, was lucky to emerge with a draw against Thad Berkhousen, 4-1-2, St. Johns, MI. The 6-1-1 cruiserweight, up two weight classes since his thrashing by Lane Staal was appreciative and apologetic after the fight: “While I just got a draw, you fans are great!” Molina exhorted to his vocal fans after the decision was read. Excuses about his sub-par performance followed.

Promoter Fred Vallejo put together a good action card in downtown Toledo’s Grand Plaza Hotel despite two late fallouts and just twelve rounds of boxing. From this observer’s viewpoint, Berkhousen had the fight all the way; I scored it 59-55. The judges had it 60-54 in Berkhousen’s favor , 57-57, and a ridiculous 58-56 in Molina’s favor. The decision cannot be considered so much a hometown decision, though the Ohio Boxing Commission should look into the 58-56 decision by Herman Horn in Molina’s favor, because Michiganian Rose Gross had it even.
