Unbeaten WBC super flyweight champion Carlos “Príncipe” Cuadras (32-0-1, 25 KOs) retained his title via twelve round unanimous decision over #1 rated challenger Luis “Nica” Concepcion (32-4, 23 KOs) on Saturday night at the Gimnasio de la Unidad Deportiva Martín Alarcon in Metepec, Estado de Mexico. Concepcion stalked the more mobile Cuadras the entire fight. WBC open scoring had Cuadras ahead 39-37 on all three cards after four. Referee Laurence Cole halted action in round eight so the ring doctor can examine a Concepcion cut. Cuadras teed off for the rest of the round. After eight, official scoring was 78-74, 77-75 and 78-74 for Cuadras. Concepcion tried to up the pressure, but Cuadras closed the show well. Scores were 118-110, 117-111, 117-111.

Featherweight Jonathan Taconing (21-2-1, 18 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over over former world champion Ramon Garcia (20-6-1, 12 KOs).

Featherweight Romulo Koasicha (23-4, 13 KOs) outpointed Edgar Monarrez (19-3-1, 13 KOs) over eight rounds. Scores were 76-75, 76-75 and 80-71.

Beterbiev destroys Campillo; J Rock victorious

By Dave Spencer at ringside
Photos: Amanda Kwok / PBC on CBS

If CBS was looking for a splash in returning live boxing to network television, they couldn’t have hoped for a better beginning than the one featuring Russian knockout king Artur Beterbiev. The Montreal based fighter who is way beyond his 8 pro fights destroyed former title-challenger Gabriel Campillo (25-7-1 12 KO) with a highlight reel knockout that had the referee stopping the contest and the ring doctor up the steps almost before the Spanish fighter hit the deck on Saturday afternoon at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

It was the 8th knockout in as many outings for Beterbiev who has wasted no time in moving his name into the rankings (IBF #2) and into immediate contender status. The official end came at 2:22 of the fourth round with Beterbiev laying out his opponent with a crushing right-left combination. The Russian was dominant from the opening bell, stumbling Campillo with his first right hand of the bout and putting him down shortly afterwards. Campillo did his best to stay away and play defence in the second, but Beterbiev showed patience and poise and was content to mount a debilitating body attack that help seal the deal in the upcoming rounds. Interviewed afterwards, Beterbiev he believes he is ready for a title shot. (more…)

Undefeated light heavyweight and two-time Russian Olympian Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) will show his skills to a huge boxing viewership this afternoon on CBS when collides with former light heavyweight world champion Gabriel Campillo (25-6-1, 12 KOs) in the Stevenson-Bika co-feature in Quebec City.

“I don’t think this is a big challenge for me,” said Beterbiev, the 2014 prospect of the year. “I’m ready to face the world champions and raise the bar higher. This is just another opponent for me.”

Already holding an amateur win over WBA/IBF/WBO champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev, Beterbiev says he’s ready to go straight into a fight with the champ. “Why not face Kovalev? I’m ready. When I turned professional my goal was to meet the champions. He’s a champion now and I’d like to face the champions.”

Brook and Khan exchange more barbs

The banter between welterweight rivals Kell Brook and Amir Khan continues.

Kell Brook to BBC 5 Live: “If someone said to me you can get five million quid, a world title, fight at Wembley with a fight that every fan wants to see, it’s a no-brainer for me. He’s fighting Algieri who didn’t win a round against Pacquiao, a feather puncher, not a big puncher. It doesn’t make sense to me. I’m world champion, I’m calling him out, we want the fight, there’s a world title and a bagful of money and it doesn’t make sense that he’s fighting this guy who’s bringing nothing to the table.”

Amir Khan on Twitter: “Can everyone please wake up. I said the fight between me and Kell Brook will happen. When I think it’s right. Look at who Kell fought last. If it is Algieri (only beaten once by pacquiao at 147 and still 140 WBO world champion) he’s still a better opponent than No No Dan. Seems to me Kell Brook is dying to fight me for the big payday before he faces a half decent opponent and loses that IBF title.”

Stevenson and Bika talking knockouts

By Karl Freitag

A lot of talk about knockouts between WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson and challenger Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika, who collide on Saturday afternoon on CBS television.

“I’m a knockout artist,” proclaimed Stevenson. “I can do a lot in the ring, but first and foremost I’m a knockout artist…my mentor Emanuel Steward always told me that as soon as I enter the ring the knockout is what sells. I’ll definitely be going for the knockout this Saturday on CBS.”

Bika stated, “He’s knocked people out, but I’ve never been knocked out. On Saturday I’ll be the one to knock him out.”

Stevenson, who has stopped 11 of his last 12 opponents, is about a 15:1 favorite. But will he get the KO against Bika who has gone the full twelve in four straight fights?

Boxcino 2014 lightweight tournament winner and former junior welterweight world title challenger Petr “El Zar” Petrov (35-4-2, 16 KOs) will meet former junior lightweight titlist Gamaliel “El Platano” Diaz (39-11-3, 18 KOs) in the 10-round lightweight main event on tonight’s ESPN Friday Night Fights from the Omega Products Center in Corona, Calif.

Petrov, as you may remember, was scheduled to fight Hank Lundy in January on ESPN2, but the fight was cancelled due to Lundy’s inability to make weight. Prior to that, Petrov scored an eighth-round TKO win over Fernando Carcamo to win the Boxcino 2014 lightweight tournament.

Diaz is looking to get back to his winning ways following a third-round technical draw against Anthony Crolla.
