In a wild firestorm brawl that featured seven knockdowns in seven rounds, Dillon Carman captured the Canadian heavyweight championship landing the final salvo over Eric Martel Bahoeli (10-5 7KO) at 2:46 of 7th round at the Mattamy Centre in Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto Ontario.
Carman (7-2 6KO) got off the canvas twice to deliver victory with referee Mark Simmons waving the bout off with Martel planted on the canvas, his right leg awkwardly bent beneath him. “That’s what champions do, they get up,” Carman told those in attendance and a national television afterwards.

Polish heavyweight legend Andrew Golota, 46, and Danell Nicholson, also 46, went four brisk rounds in an exhibition bout on Saturday at the Hala Sportowa in Czestochowa, Poland. The fighters previously met for real in Atlantic City in 1996 with Golota winning by TKO8. Golota was coming off a loss to Przemyslaw Saleta in February 2013. Nicholson’s previous fight was in 2003 against Wladimir Klitschko.

The deal has been signed – unbeaten WBA, IBO and WBC Interim middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28 KOs) of Kazakhstan will fight top-rated Martin Murray (28-1-1, 12 KOs) of the UK in Monte Carlo on February 21. Golden Gloves and K2 Promotions announced the bout minutes after Murray’s successful WBC Silver belt defense against Domenico Spada in Monaco on Saturday. Golovkin will go in search of his record 19th straight stoppage while Murray will be hoping it is third time lucky after two previous title bids were rebuffed by the judges.
“Murray is generally regarded as the best middleweight outside the world champions,” said promoter Rodney Berman. “As we all know, he’s a world champion without a belt. He won’t be intimidated for one second fighting ‘GGG’, unlike all of Golovkin’s challengers.”
Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions agreed. “Arguably, Martin Murray will be the toughest opponent Gennady has ever faced. It’s a great way to follow up the Marco Antonio Rubio win: coming back to Europe and Monte Carlo against a top-rated middleweight contender. It fits in perfectly as Murray has shown he is world class and Gennady wants to continue to prove himself the most exciting fighter out there. Gennady is making big inroads in the US, but it’s also important for the fight to be in primetime in Europe where he has so many fans.” (more…)
Middleweight Martin Murray (29-1-1, 12 KOs) set up an expected February showdown with WBA champion Gennedy Golovkin with a seventh round technical decision over Domenico Spada (39-6, 19 KOs) on Saturday night at the Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco. The bout was stopped abruptly at 1:19 of round seven due to a minor cut suffered earlier by Spada, who was furious about the plug being pulled. Scores were 67-66, 68-63, 69-67. Golovkin was at ringside scouting Murray.
In a clash for the vacant IBF bantamweight title, unbeaten Randy Caballero (22-0, 13 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over former champion Stuey Hall (16-4-2, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monac. Caballero dropped Hall in round two, but the scrappy former champion battled back and the result was uncertain until the official announcement. Scores were 116-111, 116-111, 118-110.
WBA/IBO strawweight champion Hekkie Budler (27-1, 9 KOs) retained his titles with a twelve round unanimous decision over former WBC champion Xiong Zhao Zhong (24-6-1, 14 KOs)o.

Former IBF bantamweight champion Paul Butler (17-0, 8 KOs), now campaigning as a super flyweight, was unable to stop rugged late sub Ismael Garnica (13-5-1, 5 KOs) on Saturday night at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. Butler had to go the full ten in a stay busy fight as he waits for original opponent and IBF 115lb world champion Zolani Tete to recover from injury. The referee’s score were 100-91. The Butler-Tete fight is expected in February or March.
Unbeaten flyweight Kevin Satchell (13-0, 2 KOs) won the European title with a twelve round majority decision over defending beltholder Valery Yanchy (23-4-2, 7 KOs). Scores were 114-114 and 117-112, 116-112 for the local favorite.

In the main event on Black Flash Promotion’s Homecoming show, popular local light middle Matty Ryan scored an exciting 5th round stoppage over tough and game southpaw Mick Mills. Ryan improved to 6-1 with the stoppage that came as the referee had finally seen enough after 2-mins and 35-seconds of the 5th. It was a fast paced fight from the start, if a onesided one. Ryan repeatedly pinned his man in a corner and unloaded with both hands, mostly to the head. Mills, busted up but unbowed, fought back as best he could but Ryan would not be denied. Ryan thrilled his fans tonight. Mills was having his fourth pro fight and he showed real heart.
Zelfa Barrett made his much anticipated pro debut against tough and durable 203-fight campaigner Kristian Laight and the lightweight talent did not disappoint. Boxing beautifully, going to the body a lot, Barrett showed fast hands and a fine left jab.

WBA light heavyweight champion Jurgen Brähmer has an opponent for his December 6th date at the EWE Arena in Oldenburg, Germany. Brähmer (44-2, 32 KOs) will defend against Pawel Glazewski (23-2, 5 KOs) of Bialystok, Poland. Glazewski is not currently rated by the WBA. His main claim to fame is a split decision loss to Roy Jones Jr. in June 2012.
“Recently, I have faced opposition who have either been well-conditioned or big punchers,” said Braehmer. “Glazewski possesses both these attributes. Although he does a lot well, I do it all better. I’m superior to him in every aspect of the fight game. I will prove this come December 6!”
The announcement will be a blow to Enzo Maccarinelli, who was hoping to land a rematch with the German champion.
