Peter Fury: Tyson Fury will be the next heavyweight world champion, get used to it!

By James Slater

Peter Fury, uncle and head trainer of unbeaten number-one WBO heavyweight contender Tyson Fury was the in-studio guest on BoxNation last night, watching WBA, IBF,WBO heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko comfortably out-pointed Bryant Jennings over 12 rounds.

And Fury, it has to be said, was mostly unimpressed with 39-year-old Wladimir’s performance:

“It’s disappointing, it’s a world title fight, in America, and Klitschko needed to shine, but to me that was a stink-fest,” Peter said to Steve Bunce. “Klitschko looks like he’s afraid to get hit. He’s in and out like an amateur, but his footwork is very good, I’ve got to give him that. But he’s almost like he’s on hysteria about getting hit, which turns it into a very boring affair. It’s effective, he’s done the job, but he needs to fight a proper heavyweight.” (more…)

“HH” Hubeaux wins WBC Francophone heavyweight title

Hubeaux and Goles with WBC Francophone beltLast night in the local sporthall of Andenne, Belgium, local favourite Herve “HH” Hubeaux destroyed Marina Goles in just over 2 minutes to win the first WBC Francophone heavyweight title.

The fight started promising with the challenger countering the attacking Hubeaux with large left hooks. Suddenly the visitor was cornered and dropped by a perfect left-right combination to the head. He rose at the count of 4 but unexpectedly his cornerman Mirko Skoko threw in the towel accepting the KO defeat of his pupil. It was absolutely unnecessary and a much too hasty move as Goles was ready and clear to give it another try. The cornerman took all the chances away from his boxer to let him get into the fight again.
23 year old Herve “HH” Hubeaux, now 21-1-0(9), can’t be blamed and did what he had to do with the impressive stoppage of Croatian Marino Goles who drops to 18-4-0(16).
Croatia is one of the 80 recognised OIF countries (click to see list of countries)

The show was promoted by Sophie Ligot in association with EuroboxePromotion headed by Alain Vanackere.

IBF/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 54 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten challenger Bryant Jennings (19-1, 10 KOs) tonight at “The World’s Most Famous Arena”, Madison Square Garden. Klitschko got off to a good start, although Jennings had some moments. Jennings started to cause Klitschko more problems in the middle rounds with his movement and rushes. Klitschko was deducted a point for holding from referee Michael Griffin. Jennings took some big shots in round twelve. Scores were 116-111, 116-111, 118-109.

This was Wlad’s 18th consecutive heavyweight title defense, a mark is surpassed only by Louis (25) and Larry Holmes (20). Counting his first reign as WBO champion, this will be Wladimir’s 23rd title defense. It was also Wlad’s first fight in the U.S. since he faced Sultan Ibragimov in this same arena seven years ago.

Verdejo explodes on Lopez to win first pro title

Unbeaten lightweight star Felix “El Diamante” Verdejo (17-0, 13 KOs) returned to Puerto Rico on Saturday night with a spectacular fifth round KO over Marco “Kua Kua” Lopez (22-6, 13 KOs) at the Coliseo Mario “Quijote” Morales in Guaynabo. Verdejo boxed intelligently, patiently figuring out Lopez, then got the KO in round five with a left hook to claim the vacant WBO Latino lightweight title. Lopez failed to make the weight, so only Verdejo was eligible to win the belt.

Florida welterweight talent Clarence Booth (11-1, 6 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Samuel Santana (6-10-2, 1 KO). Booth dropped Santana with a body shot in the fourth and got the stoppage shortly after.

Undercard Results from Madison Square Garden

By Arvin Nundloll and Jerry Glick at ringside

Welterweight contender Sadam “The World Kid” Ali (22-0, 13 KOs) from Brooklyn, NY, used his skills and hand speed to outpoint tough Francisco “Chia” Santana (22-4-1, 10 KOs) of Santa Barbara, CA, over ten hard fought rounds to defend his WBO International title and capture the WBA Intercontinental belt. The entire contest close and competitive. It was a case of Ali using his legs to nullify the constant pressure from Santana. In the eighth round, Santana landed a hard straight right to Ali’s head but absorbed an equally hard left hook in return. Santana did a good job of cutting the ring off, but it did not prevent Ali from landing his combinations. Ali finished strong in the last frame as he survived Santana’s efforts to rough him up, and again used his boxing skills to take the final round. Scores were 100-90 and 97-93 twice, all for Ali.

Charles Martin (21-0-1, 18 KOs) kept his unbeaten streak alive with another KO against Tom Dallas (17-5, 12 KOs) in round one of their scheduled 10 round heavyweight bout. Dallas failed to get started and after sustaining cut above the left eye, Dallas took a vicious right hook from Martin that ultimately caught up with him and forced the referee to intervene. The official time of the stoppage was 2:56 in round one. (more…)

WBC Female Championship Results

Eva Wahlstrom crowned herself the new WBC female world super featherweight champion Saturday night at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland. And not only that: The 34-year-old is also the first ever Finnish boxing world champion in history. Wahlstrom clearly dominated Natalia Vanesa del Valle Aguirre (Argentina) in a fight for the vacant title and earned a well deserved unanimous decision. Judge Freddy Rafn (Denmark) scored the bout 100-90, Jürgen Langos (Germany) saw it 99-91 while Ventsislav Nikolov (Bulgaria) had it 97-93. 5,000 fans at the Hartwall Arena enthusiastically celebrated the new champ who could be on a collision course with former titlist Diana Prazak from Australia.
——
Delfine Persoon once more proved that she is the best female lightweight in the world right now. The Belgian powerhouse wore down mandatory challenger Nicole Boss in her backyard in Bern (Switzerland) to defend the WBC Female World Lightweight Championship in convincing fashion by TKO after 0:45 minutes in the ninth round. Persoon dominated the fight from the opening bell. At the time of the stoppage judges Guido Cavalleri (Italy) and Robert Verwijs (Netherlands) had it 80-72, Robin Dolpierre (France) saw it 79-73, all three in favor of the old and new World Champion Persoon who is without a doubt one of the top pound-for-pound female fighters today.

Klitschko to defend title in the USA tonight

By Karl Freitag

IBF/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (63-3, 54 KOs) is poised to extend his nine year title reign against unbeaten challenger Bryant Jennings (19-0, 10 KOs) tonight at “The World’s Most Famous Arena”, Madison Square Garden. The event will be televised Live on HBO in the United States and RTL in Germany. Klitschko says he’s ready for whatever Jennings brings. “I have multiple game plans,” stated Wlad, “if A doesn’t work we move to B, C, D, or E. Always have to be prepared to change up. The best way to win is by knockout and that’s my plan.”

“My focus right now is only on Bryant Jennings, I give credit to him and what he has accomplished and I’m only thinking about beating him at Madison Square Garden and on HBO. Later there will be time to consider Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder fights but now is not the time to talk about that.”

Some numbers:

    Klitschko’s nine year run is the second longest in heavyweight history, trailing only Joe Louis, who reigned for 11 years, 8 months.

    Tonight is Wlad’s 18th consecutive heavyweight title defense. That mark is surpassed only by Louis (25) and Larry Holmes (20).

    Counting his first reign as WBO champion, this will be Wladimir’s 23rd title defense.

    It will be Wlad’s first fight in the U.S. since he faced Sultan Ibragimov in this same arena seven years ago. Ibragimov never fought again.

    Klitschko is a prohibitive favorite, ranging from 14:1 to over 20:1 at various online sportsbooks.

I’m going to continue taking the biggest and best fights out there. I don’t want to take no step down. I want to prove I’m the best fighter in and around my division, and one of the best in any division. To be great, you got to set your sights on the Pacquiaos and the Mayweathers. Those are the kind of guys I want to fight, and beat.”

Klassen stops Mcotheli in the tenth round

By Ron Jackson

In a scrappy affair former two-time IBF junior lightweight champion Malcolm Klassen stopped Xolani Mcotheli in the tenth round in a clash for the vacant IBO International junior lightweight title at the Orient Theatre in East London on Friday night. However, the title remains vacant as Klassen came in over the weight.

In a below par performance Klassen (59.45kg) who improved his record to 30-6-2; 16 appeared too tight as he threw punches from far out and missed badly throughout before he caught Mcotheli with a left and right combination to the head that sent him down flat on his face in the tenth round. Mcotheli tried to rise from the canvas but was counted at 2:05 into the round. Mcotheli spent most of the fight leaning on and holding onto Klassen and the referee could well have deducted two points or given him a stern warning. Mcotheli’s reported record dropped to 11-2, 8 KOs. (more…)

It was a wipeout according to the judges as they all scored it 100-90 in favor of Cantu.

The action in the ring, however, was more competitive than the scores indicated. Pasillas, the smaller of the two, took the fight to Cantu early and was able to land some good shots that forced Cantu against the ropes. Cantu kept his composure and soon started to land his jab and with a solid overhand right at the end of the 3rd round take control.

By the 6th and 7th rounds, Cantu was in charge as Pasillas punch count and overall energy lessened as the fight wore on. An accidental head butt in round 10, opened a gash over Cantu’s eye, but not serious enough to stop the fight.

With the victory, Cantu remained undefeated and took the title back to Kingsville as he looks to pursue bigger fights down the road. (more…)
