Quigg destroys Jamoye to retain WBA belt

Photos: Scott J. Raven

WBA super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (29-0-2, 22 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Stephane Jamoye (26-6, 16 KOs) at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England. Quigg, a 20:1 favorite, ended matters with a body shot. Jamoye beat the count, but the bout was waved off at 1:13 by referee Terry O’Connor. Quigg made his fourth defense of the WBA belt, while Jamoye has now lost three of his last four. Quigg has a mandatory due against Chris Avalos, but is looking to take on IBF champion Carl Frampton instead.

Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Anthony Joshua (8-0, 8 KOs) continued to impress with a third round TKO over veteran Konstantin Airich (21-10-2, 17 KOs). Joshua dropped Airich in round three and got the stoppage with his follow up barrage. Time was 1:16.

A fight between lightweights Anthony Crolla (28-4-1, 11 KOs) and former world champion Gamaliel Diaz (38-11-3, 17 KOs) ended in a third round technical draw after an accidental headbutt left Diaz with a cut over the right eye. It looked to be shaping to be a good scrap before the bout was waved off at the end of round three.

Welterweight Sam Eggington (12-2, 5 KOs) scored an eighth round TKO over Denton Vassell (20-2, 10 KOs) in a good action fight. Eggington got a referee’s stoppage after a barrage of shots. Time was 2:36. The bout was a British title eliminator.

Lightweight Scott Cardle (16-0, 4 KOs) needed just 46 seconds to demolish Kirk Goodings (11-2, 3 KOs). Cardle claimed the English title and earned a shot at the British belt. photos

Mayweather an 8:1 favorite to go 47-0

By Karl Freitag

All eyes in the boxing world will be on Las Vegas tonight as WBC/WBA welterweight and WBC/WBA super welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs) faces Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) in a rematch. The unbeaten Mayweather is an 8:1 favorite to defeat Maidana again.

On the undercard, WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (27-0-1, 15 KOs) is a 50:1 favorite to retain his belt against former sparring partner Manuel Roman (17-2-3, 6 KOs), IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (34-3, 13 KOs) is a 3:1 pick to keep his belt against Mickey Bey (20-1-1, 10 KOs) in a battle of stylists. Former world title challenger Alfredo Angulo (28-4, 18 KOs) moves up to middleweight to battle James de la Rosa (22-2, 13 KOs). Angulo is a 4:1 pick. Also, former multi-division world champion Humberto Soto (64-8-2, 35 KOs) is an underdog against all-action fan favorite John Molina (27-4, 22 KOs), who is a 2:1 pick.

There are also some notable fights in Europe.

WBA super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (28-0-2, 21 KOs) makes the fourth defense of his belt against Stephane Jamoye at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England. Quigg is currently a 20:1 favorite. On the undercard, Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Anthony Joshua (7-0, 7 KOs) is a whopping 100:1 favorite to beat Konstantin Airich (21-9-2, 17 KOs), and lightweight Anthony Crolla (28-4, 11 KOs) is a 9:1 pick to top former world champion Gamaliel Diaz (38-11-2, 17 KOs).

In a groundbreaking female world title unification fight in Copenhagen, Denmark, WBC/WBA/WBO welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus (25-0, 7 KOs) meets IBF champion Ivana Habazin (13-1, 5 KOs) for the undisputed title. Braekus is a 45:1 favorite in this one.

Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana II: Challenger will give it his all, but is it enough?

By Graham Houston

When the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana rematch was announced, I struggled to get enthused. As always happens though, by fight day — today — I’m intrigued.

Last time the two met, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where the rematch will take place — Showtime PPV in the States and BoxNation subscription-TV coverage in the U.K. — Mayweather pulled away in the late rounds for what seemed to be a clear win. Hold on a minute, though. One judge had the fight a draw and there were observers who made this a close fight. So, here we go again. What can Maidana do differently this time? In the first fight he threw everything he had at Mayweather in the early rounds, was right in the fight, but then got outboxed down the stretch. Has anything really changed in the past four and a half months?

Maidana says that the first fight wasn’t difficult and he believes he did enough to win. Now he knows Mayweather and knows what to expect, so, he says, the return fight will be easier.

Mayweather, who defends the WBC welter and light-middleweight titles, along with the WBA “super world” welter title that he won from Maidana in May, promises a more exciting fight this time. “I will be faster, I will be stronger, I will be a better fighter,” Mayweather commented in one of the many quotes given to the media.

Gingras defeats McCreedy in Lincoln, RI

Contender 4 reality series fighter Rich Gingras now has two titles to his name and is taking aim at a third. After beating Joey McCreedy by unanimous decision in the main event Friday night at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island, defending his New England Light Heavyweight title and capturing McCreedy’s Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) Northeast title, Gingras has his eyes set on settling the score with another popular regional foe.

Asked who he wants to fight next, Gingras, without hesitation, said, “Vladine Biosse,” referring to the reigning N.E. Super Middleweight Champion from Providence, R.I., who defended his belt against Gingras in July of 2013 in a controversial draw. “I want that super middleweight belt. I want all three,” he said. “It’s mine to begin with. I want it back.” (more…)

In the night’s eight-round heavyweight “bombs away” co-main event, hard-hitting former WBC Champion Samuel Peter (34-5, 27 KOs) will return for the first time in three years to face former ECHL hockey enforcer turned heavyweight KO artist Ron “The Iceman” Aubrey (12-3, 12 KOs) from Oklahoma City. Having been on the world stage for most of his career, the 34-year-old Peter will have the edge in experience, but Aubrey will have his army of fans in his corner, cheering the powerful strongman onto pull the huge upset. Someone is surely going home sore and disappointed in this war of big men.

The day has come as Argentinian slugger and former world champion Marcos “Chino” Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) of Santa Fe, Argentina is set to take on pound king WBA/WBC welterweight and super welterweight champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26 KOs). Maidana will get his shot at redemption in a rematch this Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena live on Showtime Pay-per view. Just four months following their May showdown. Fightnews.com caught up with Maidana as he talked about his training camp, the previous match and the upcoming rematch with Mayweather.

“I am very well prepared. I have trained very well we have made some adjustments to capitalize on this fight,” Maidana told us. “I am happy to be getting the rematch with Mayweather. He really doesn’t give rematches. The last fight was a good fight I really liked it, I expect to win this second fight, I thought I won the first fight, and I will win again on September 13.” (more…)

Japan Boxing Commission protests WBA’s mandatory Kono-Kameda bout

The World Boxing Association has called for a September 17th purse bid in Panama for a bout between WBA super flyweight champion Kohei Kono and former multi-division champion Koki Kameda. Starting bid of US$80,000. The purse split is 75% champion and 25% challenger. However, in a very unusual situation, this all-Japanese mandatory title fight cannot be held in Japan as Kameda is suspended by the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC). The JBC has announced that it has registered a protest against the mandatory fight.

In a statement, JBC Representative Director Hiroshi Akiyama wrote the following:

Before of all, we, Japanese Boxing Commission (JBC) should NOT mention the matter of the WBA discretion and we would also like to refrain from any hypothetical questions or stories. However we should announce our view against the bidding for WBA Superflyweight mandatory.

At first, we JBC NEVER ever recognize and sanction boxing bout with any boxer, who has no JBC license, even though any promotion wins the bidding.

Secondly we have questioned the WBA about the operation and management of their interim championship for years. And then we stopped recognizing the WBA interim championship in 2010.

When it comes to this bidding, we could not understand the designation of mandatory challenger, even though it is a whole WBA discretion. We have thrown questions to the WBA about the process of the designation, however we still could not understand.

Thirdly, we think it might be the time we should reconsider WBA championship as a world title fight.

Finally, the JBC emphasize that we still expect and believe in the faith and fairness of the WBA.

Will the bid proceed? Will the bout be held? Restless days for Kono, Kameda, the WBA, and the JBC will continue until the 17th.

Amir Khan denied entry to U.S.

One face that apparently won’t be at ringside for tomorrow’s Mayweather-Maidana fight in Las Vegas is Mayweather’s possible next opponent Amir Khan. On Thursday Khan tweeted:

Visa to America was declined after I had it approved a week ago. Was looking forward to the fight. Means I’m still in England.

Khan later expanded on the situation via his Facebook page.

A week ago my visa was approved for USA. Today at the airport they pulled me and my uncle to the side and said our Visa has declined now. I was just about to check in. So now I’m back in UK and my wife Faryal Makhdoom is in USA. I dropped her off myself this morning thinking I’ll meet her back in San Francisco. So I guess the Mayweather fight is off for me. We are still trying to get to Vegas. Will let you all know what happens.

Apparently some strings were pulled and Khan later reported:

I spoke to the PM David Cameron about fast tracking my appointment to the US embassy. He will get back to me shortly.

Khan normally spends considerable time in the U.S. and trains with Virgil Hunter in the Bay Area.

Fujimoto keeps Japanese heavyweight belt; Ex-champ Igarashi defeats Tesorio in comeback bout

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

Japanese heavyweight champ, WBC#21 Kyotaro Fujimoto (10-1, 6 KOs), 232.5, retained his national belt when he bloodied compatriot Kotatsu Takehara (10-10-3, 4 KOs; AKA Masataka Takehara), 224, so profusely that the referee declared a TKO win for the champ since he saw the loser unfit to go on further at 0:44 of the fifth round on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. Kyotaro, formerly a MMA battler, rocked his grudge rival with a solid right and opened a nasty laceration over the left eyebrow midway in round two. The third witnessed the faster champ connect with quick combinations to the face, pinning him to the ropes, where the third man took a standing count against the fading veteran. But Takehara gamely fought back hard and landed some strong rights to have the crowd on its feet in the fourth. The ref, however, had the ringside physician examine the challenger’s deep gashes twice before he finally called a halt in favor of the champ. Kyotaro, a Japanese Canelo with red-dyed hair, looked sharp and strong this night, showing a much better performance than in his last against ex-WBA 154-pound interim titlist Nobuhiro Ishida this April.
