Former super middleweight world champion Andre “S.O.G.” Ward (29-0, 15 KOs) served notice to the light heavyweight division with a twelve round unanimous decision over IBF #1 rated contender Sullivan Barrera on Saturday night in Oakland, California.

“Probably a B-minus,” is how Ward assessed his performance, “because I told you guys in the fighters meeting that I wouldn’t use the layoff as an excuse at any level, but the reality is the more you fight, the sharper you get. There were certain things I want to do that I didn’t do tonight, but it just shows that maybe not at my best we can still get it done the way we need to get it done.”

Regarding a fight with light heavyweight world champion Sergey Kovalev, who was at ringside, Ward said “It’s not a matter of if, I just think it’s when.”

Thai 118-pounder “Dynamite Kid” Saenganan Sithsaithong (16-0, 7 KOs) outscored Eric Panza (9-7-1, 2 KOs) over twelve exciting rounds by scores of 115-113, 115-113 and 116-113 to capture the vacant IBF Pan Pacific bantamweight title on Friday at Pabon, Thailand. Sithsaithong controlled the fight in the early rounds as he connected consistently with effective jabs. In round six, both boxers went toe-to-toe landing solid combinations that visibly had both boxers on unsteady legs. Panza boxed aggressively in round seven, eight and nine scoring with accurate hooks to the head and body of Sithsaitgong. In round twelve both Sithsaithong and Panza traded bombs until the final bell leaving the fans cheering. (more…)

Indongo retains WBO Africa title

By Ron Jackson

Julius “Blue Machine” Indongo retained his WBO Africa welterweight title when he stopped Allan Kamote from Tanzania in the ninth round at the Windhoek Country Club and Casino in Namibia on Saturday night. Indongo made a fast start and dropped Kamote in the second round as he dominated the fight throughout with his educated jab. Kamote had no answer to combinations thrown by the southpaw champion who scored with stinging right and left combinations to the head. When the gutsy challenger was not fighting back and being battered by Indongo in the ninth round referee Deon Dwarte waved the fight off. (more…)

WBC #9 rated lightweight Dante “Crazy” Jardon (29-5, 22 KOs) won a hard fought twelve round unanimous decision over former world champion Juan Carlos Salgado (26-6-1, 16 KOs) to defend his WBC International silver belt on Saturday night at the historic Arena Coliseo in Mexico City. Scores were 118-110, 117-112, 116-112.

WBC #12 super featherweight Juan José “Piquet” Martínez (24-2, 17 KOs) outscored former WBA interim champion Emmanuel “Pollo” López (18-5-1, 8 KOs) over ten by scores of 92-98, 94-97 and 94-96.

A clash between welterweight José “Pistón“ López (25-4-2, 15 KOs) and Gustavo “Vitaminas“ Garibay (12-7-2, 5 KOs) was declared a technical draw when Lopez suffered a cut from an accidental headclash in round one.

Hernandez TKOs Miranda

By the time the seventh round ended, Dionisio Miranda wanted nothing to do with Andrew Hernandez. Hernandez was the more active and accurate boxer from the opening bell, dissecting Miranda with punches throughout their super middleweight clash before winning by seventh-round TKO in the main event of Battle at the Boat 105 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma on Saturday. The win improves Hernandez to 11-4-1 with 3 KOs, while Miranda dropped to 22-15-2.

Miranda, a former North America Boxing Association middleweight champion, entered the bout with 19 career knockouts, but failed to land any quality punches as he was never able to catch up to Hernandez. After another convincing round for Hernandez, Miranda, who appeared sluggish from the start, elected to remain in his corner at the start of the eighth round, leading to the scheduled 10-round bout being waved off.

Kovalev: I want to beat Ward in front of his fans in Oakland

Photo: Alexis Cuarezma/Main Events

WBA/IBF/WBO unified light heavyweight world champion was ringside Saturday night for former super middleweight world champion Andre Ward’s one-sided win over #1 rated light heavyweight Sullivan Barrera.

“My prediction is complete,” said The Krusher. “(I said) that it would be easy for Ward. I felt that he would stop Barrera early. But Barrera did better than I expected. I’m very happy that he won and it takes me one more step to our possible fight. It’s possible because we have to win one fight more, then after that our fight.

“I understand that most people don’t love me here because I want to beat him in front of his fans. But it’s not an easy job and I want to beat him in front of his fans in Oakland. And it isn’t easy. I’ll keep working to get a victory over his boxing style. (more…)

Ward easily defeats #1 rated Barrera, Kovalev next?

By David Robinett and Robert Hough at ringside
Photos: Alexis Cuarezma/Main Events

Fighting for the first time as a professional in the light heavyweight division and for just the second time since 2013, Andre Ward, (29-0, 15 KOs), earned an impressive twelve round unanimous decision over the previously unbeaten Sullivan Barrera, (17-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. Scores for the bout were 117-108, 117-109, and 118-109.

As the larger, natural light heavyweight, Barrera used his length to good advantage early, outjabbing Ward until getting caught by a Ward left hook to the temple that dropped him to the canvas in round three. Barrera was not badly hurt and the two fighters went toe to toe in brief but intense exchanges for the rest of round three through round five.

As the fight progressed however Ward started to figure Barrera out, consistently landing his left hand on Barrera and not getting caught as much as he was early on. Barrera also seemed to wear down late, still fighting but with less skill and urgency than in the early rounds. Ward was docked a point for a low blow in round eight, but other than that he closed the fight out in full control.

In the televised co-feature from Oakland, 2012 U.S. Olympian Joseph Diaz, Jr., (20-0, 11 KOs), passed his biggest test to date, earning a clear unanimous decision over former WBC “Silver” Featherweight Champion Jayson Velez, (23-2-1, 16 KOs), in ten rounds by scores of 98-92, 99-91, 100-91.

While the crowd at Oracle Arena serenaded ringside spectator Steph Curry with chants of “MVP,” Diaz pounded Velez over and over with left hands, seemingly on the verge of knocking down Velez on several occasions. Velez fought back gamely at times, stunning Diaz with a straight left hand in round four, but it was not enough against the younger, faster, and stronger Diaz, who retained his NABF featherweight belt with the win and is clearly ready for championship level competition.

Off-TV Results from Oakland, Calif.

By David Robinett and Robert Hough at ringside

Amateur standout Daniel Franco, (13-0-3, 8 KOs), put on a workmanlike performance before getting a gift stoppage in the eighth and final round over veteran trial horse German Meraz, (49-38-1, 30 KOs), a 29-year old with nearly 90 fights over the last 11 years. The fight, contested in the featherweight division, was not very competitive, with Meraz doing an admirable job of giving Franco rounds while not offering much in return other than a willing chin. Despite suffering a flash knockdown in round five though, Meraz was going to finish the fight relatively unhurt. However at 1:13 of round eight the referee suddenly waved the fight over after Meraz blocked a Franco left hook. Fortunately it had no impact on the final outcome, but it was a bizarre decision at that stage of the fight.

20-year old light heavyweight prospect Junior Younan, (8-0, 6 KOs), cruised to an easy four-round unanimous decision over Cristian Solorzano, (3-8, 2 KOs), 40-36 on all three scorecards. Younan, coming off a nine-month layoff, came out guns blazing after the opening bell, trying to blitz Solorzano for a quick stoppage, but Solorzano was able to survive the opening barrage. After that, the fight settled into a pattern of Younan sticking and moving with Solorzano dutifully following him around the ring but unable to put any pressure on his opponent. (more…)

Unbeaten IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (36-0, 25 KOs) scored a quick second round KO over mandatory challenger Kevin Bizier (25-3, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at Sheffield Arena in Sheffield, England. By round two, Bizier’s face was already a bloody mess. Brook then battered Bizier to the deck twice in the round and the one-sided affair was over. Time was 2:15.

2012 Olympic lightweight gold medalist Luke Campbell (12-1, 10 KOs) rebounded from his first career loss with a second round demolition of Gary Sykes (28-4, 6 KOs).

Unbeaten heavyweight David Allen (9-0-1, 6 KOs) was victorious when veteran Jason Gavern (27-21-4, 12 KOs), who as usual came in on late notice, quit after round four.

Fury decisions Guinn, Eubank stops Blackwell

Unbeaten heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury (19-0, 10 KOs) scored a lopsided ten round unanimous decision over late sub Dominick Guinn (35-11-1, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at Wembley Arena in London, England. The 6’6 Fury was in command every minute of the fight against Guinn, who has never been stopped. Score was 100-90. Hughey is the cousin of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

In a good action scrap, WBA #2, WBC #4 middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr (22-1, 17 KOs) dethroned British champion Nick Blackwell (19-4-1, 8 KOs) via tenth round TKO. Eubank outclassed and busted up the very tough and game Blackwell and the brutal bout was finally stopped in round ten due to swelling around Blackwell’s left eye. Blackwell was taken from the ring on a stretcher.

Now campaigning as a light heavyweight, Frank Buglioni (17-2-1, 14 KOs) destroyed journeyman Olegs Fedotovs (21-25, 15 KOs) in the first round.

By Robert Hough

WBA, IBF, WBO light heavyweight world champion Sergey Kovalev predicted Saturday afternoon that Andre Ward would have more skill and talent than Sullivan Barrera can handle. Kovalev, who plans to fight summer, met the media before the Ward fight. “He can do more in the ring,” Kovalev said of Ward, who makes his light-heavyweight debut. “He can do more things; he’s more professional.”

Kathy Duva, Kovalev’s promoter, said it is premature to talk about a location or opponent for the Russian’s fight this summer.

Kovalev, who has been scathing in speaking of fighters like Jean Pascal and Adonis Stevenson, was expansive in his praise of Ward. “He’s a very polite guy, a very quiet guy,” he said. “He doesn’t talk any trash; he’s a gentleman. He’s a nice man and a nice boxer and I like him. I cannot say anything bad about him – yet.”

WBO #1 Sakae loses to Japanese 105lb champ Fukuhara

Previously unbeaten Japanese prospect, WBO#1/IBF#6/WBA#8 Takumi Sakae (13-1, 8 KOs), 104.75, tasted his first setback when he failed to win the Japanese national minimumweight belt from defending titlist Tatsuya Fukuhara (17-4-5, 4 KOs), 104.75, by losing a unanimous verdict (97-93 twice, 98-94) over ten see-saw rounds on Saturday in Kumamoto, Japan.

Fukuhara, a more experienced southpaw though having lost to future world champ Yu Kimura and ex-amateur champ Takuma Inoue in his pro debut, had the upper hand with his better precision and smarter distribution of stamina. Sakae attempted to take the leadoff in earlier rounds, but consumed his energy to be fading in later rounds. Fukuhara, battering him upstairs and downstairs, kept piling up points steadily and maintained the initiative all the way.

Corcoran defeats Butler for WBO Intl belt

corcoran300
Wembley’s Gary Corcoran beat Danny Butler to claim the Vacant WBO Intercontinental Junior-Middleweight Championship at London’s York Hall on Friday night. The natural-born scrapper was on the front foot from the off and dominated large parts of the bout; securing a unanimous decision win with scores of 100-89, 99-90 and 100-89.

‘Hell Raiser’ lived up to his name and came flying out his corner in the opening round, peppering Butler with hooks and jabs. Both men were happy to stand and trade at will; making for an explosive start to the evening’s bill-topper.

All-action Corcoran refused to take and step back and chased down Butler throughout the opening rounds. Butler gave as good as he got and landed some strong combinations of his own. The fight began to swing in Corcoran’s favour in the seventh round. Corcoran’s blistering hand speed had Butler in trouble, the Bristol man was pinned up against the ropes throughout the seventh and took a tumble out of the ring. (more…)

Galina Ivanova: Dina Thorslund is still a kid, I’ll beat her with one hand

By Ognian Georgiev / Bulgaria Today

Former world and European female champion Galina Ivanova (16-11-4, 2 KOs) has been very active in the last couple of days in social media attacking the unbeaten super-bantamweight prospect Dina “Blonde Bomber” Thorslund (6-0, 4 KOs). 38-year veteran started her pro career in the previous millennium and the southpaw stylist fought around the world and won many belts. Fightnews reached Galina Ivanova to learn more about her plans.

Galina, you wrote some harsh words towards Dina Thorslund in the social media. Is there any reason behind it?

I was provoked by Nisse Sauerland’s words that Thorslund may become a world champion in the next 12 months. It’s funny, because the girl just started with pro boxing. She had just few fights with some walking bags. Only one of her opponents is with a positive balance. (more…)
