Heavyweight Razvan Cojanu (13-1-1, 7 KOs) will be ready to fight April 10th for the next round of the ESPN2 Boxcino 2015 tournament. Razvan was cut by a clash of heads above his right eye in the decisive tie breaking seventh round he won to advance past Ed Fountain (10-0-1, 4 KOs) in the eight-man knockout tournament.

“Razvan received four stitches for his cut. He was ordered by doctors to have no boxing contact activity for eight to ten days. So he will be OK to continue on in the tournament and more than ready to face Donovan Dennis in the next round on April 10th,” informs Journeyman Management CEO Andrew Zak. Cojanu against Dennis will be an eight round semi-final contest. The final will be a ten-rounder on May 22.

Sturm planning 168lb world title challenge

Three-time middleweight champion Felix Sturm will reportedly challenge WBA interim super middleweight champion Fedor Chudinov.

Golovkin, Murray meet again

Boxing superstar Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and top rated challenger Martin Murray met on Sunday afternoon one day after Golovkin’s dominant 11th round stoppage victory at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte-Carlo and telecast live around the world. They were staying at adjoining hotels and GGG invited Murray over to meet for coffee in the lobby. Very strong mutual respect from the two boxers.

With the win, Golovkin improved to 32-0-0 (29KO’s), including 19 consecutive knockouts as he defended his world title for the 13th time, surpassing Hall of Famer Marvin Hagler’s middleweight world title reign. Golovkin is currently the WBA/IBO and ‘Interim’ WBC Middleweight Champion.

Diaz defeats McNickles in Milwaukee

By Craig Wick at ringside

Milwaukee’s Harley-Davidson was the scene Saturday night for a nine bout card put on by ‘Rough House Promotions, LLC,’ and belatedly titled “Valentine’s Massacre.” A bevy of local talent was primarily on display with the obligatory out-of-towners shuttled in to round out the opposition.

In the main event, a ten round lightweight contest for the “Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) US-Midwest Lightweight Title,”David Diaz (8-1-1, 4 KO’s) Waukesha, WI by way of Arecibo, Puerto Rico was declared the winner when Carl “The Assassin” McNickles (8-7, 6 KO’s) Chicago, IL was suddenly disqualified in round nine. It was a bizarre ending to what had been an entertaining scrap. (more…)

Rodriguez crushes Molnar

WBO Latino bantamweight champion, Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Rodriguez (11-0, 7 KOs) from Puerto Rico, defeated Hungarian, Gabor Molnar (16-7, 10 KOs) by TKO in the second round in a 10 round maint event bout held at the Francisco ‘Pancho’ Deida Coliseum in Hatillo, Puerto Rico. Rodriguez was suposed to face Dominican title contender, Luis Hinojosa but visa issues cancelled the fight. Molnar entered the fight as a one week replacement. The WBO Latino belt was not on the line because Molnar is not Latino.

From the beginning of the fight, Rodriguez was effective by being the aggressor, and attacked the body with lots of solid right and left hooks. Molnar visited the canvas four times, twice on each round, until the referee stopped the fight. (more…)

In the co-feature of the nine bout card promoted by Kings Promotions in association with Al Haymon, undefeated super middleweight John “Mag Man” Magda (9-0, 6 KOs) calmly broke down and dropped Jay Williams (3-5) twice on his way to a lopsided six round unanimous decision victory.

Murray on loss to GGG, possible future

By James Slater

British middleweight Martin Murray gave it his all last night against the fearsome Gennady Golovkin, ultimately being stopped in the 11th-round of an at times brutally one-sided fight. Yet Murray, in speaking with Ron Lewis of Mail Online, says he is “gutted” at the moment and is taking no pride from the fact that he extended GGG like no other fighter has ever been able to manage.

Murray, who was comprehensively and legitimately beaten for just the first time in his career (a number of people felt he did enough to upset Sergio Martinez back in 2013, as well enough to have earned a win over Felix Sturm in 2011, but Murray had to settle for a controversial decision against Martinez and an even more controversial draw in the fight against Sturm) says he wanted to show he is the best middleweight in the world against Golovkin but that he failed in his quest. However, Murray, 29-2-1(12) says he “definitely” feels he is the second best middleweight in the world. (more…)

Abraham dominates Smith in rematch

By Karl Freitag

In a rematch, WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (42-4, 28 KOs) retained his world title with a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Paul Smith (35-6, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the O2 World arena in Berlin, Germany. After a slow first round, Abraham picked up the pace and dominated the rest of the fight with his power punching. Smith was game, but lacked the firepower to trouble the champion. Scores were 116-112, 117-111, 117-111.

Abraham granted a rematch to Smith after an uproar in British media over the wide scoring in their first fight. Shouldn’t be any arguments now.

2008 Olympic bronze medalist and IBF #10/WBO #12 heavyweight David Price (19-2, 16 KOs) scored a sixth round stoppage against Irineu Beato Costa Junior (16-3, 14 KOs). Price was in command the whole way, then ended it with three knockdowns in round six. Price extended his win streak to four, while Junior has now lost three of his last four.

In a surprise, light heavyweight Mirco Ricci (14-2, 4 KOs) outworked previously unbeaten Enrico Koelling (16-1, 6 KOs) over twelve rounds to claim the WBA intercontinental belt. Scores were 117-112, 116-112, 116-112, all for Ricci.

Unbeaten featherweight Josh Warrington (20-0, 4 KOs) scored a dominant fifth round stoppage of journeyman Edwin Tellez (9-12-5, 4 KOs).

Khan: Mayweather-Pacquiao could be “boring”

By James Slater

As surely every fight fan on the planet knows by now, the five-years-in-the-making, publicly demanded super-fight that is Floyd Mayweather Junior Vs. Manny Pacquiao is on; a done deal for The MGM Grand in what will be a packed to the hilt and quite mesmerizing Las Vegas on May 2nd (thus pushing the Canelo Alvarez-James Kirkland clash back a week to May 9th, if anyone is capable of thinking right now about any fight other than the welterweight unification showdown).

Everyone from the world of boxing, and quite a few people who have nothing to do with the sport, will have a pre-fight prediction they will be putting out there in the coming weeks (just six weeks to go until fight night!) and both Team Mayweather and Team Pac-Man are predicting a stoppage win. But British star and long-time chaser of Mayweather, Amir Khan, says he fears the fight we have all waited so long for could well prove to be a boring fight. (more…)

Martin Murray: I know it will have to be a war. I’m ready for it!

Middleweight title challenger Martin Murray may be a heavy underdog against big punching world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, but he’s saying all the right things. “He’s not just a big puncher – he seems to have the lot,” said Murray. “But we’ve seen a couple of chinks in his armor and we feel there’s some stuff for us to work on during the fight. We’re confident it’s going to work. I’m looking forward to going in there on Saturday and trying them out. It doesn’t bother me that Golovkin hits hard. Don’t get me wrong, I’d prefer it if he hit a bit softer, but it doesn’t faze me knowing that I’m going to go in there with someone who knocks everybody out. I know he hits hard, I know it’s going to be a tough fight and I know I might get hurt. I’m ready and prepared for it, though…I’m expecting a long, hard fight and I’m expecting to have to go through a lot of pain. But, no matter what it takes, and no matter what I have to go through, my hand is going to get raised at the end of that fight. I know this is a proper battle and I know it will have to be a war. I’m ready for it!”

The popular Golovkin, who generally doesn’t stir up much excitement in his largely generic comments before all of his fights, does his talking with his gloves in the ring. Against Murray he’ll be looking for his 19th KO in a row.

Cruz still unbeaten; Galarza wins in 76 seconds; Agnew upset by Clarkson

In front of a sellout crowd of his hometown fans, junior lightweight prospect Bryant “Peewee” Cruz, of Port Chester, NY, headlined DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing debut on Friday night, in Westchester County, at the beautiful Hilton Westchester, in Rye Brook, NY. Cruz, 130, showed tremendous heart to recover from a knockdown in round two then engage Jorge Pazos, 128¼, of Guamuchil, Sinaloa, Mexico, in a slugfest the following frame. By the midway point of the scheduled eight-rounder, Cruz took back control of the contest, using his jab to set up combinations and outbox Pazos. Showing superior hand speed, Cruz used left hooks to punctuate flurries upstairs. By the seventh round, a bruised Pazos’ face had swelled up from all the punishment he’d taken. After eight exciting rounds, the judges tallied 78-73 twice, and 77-74, all for “Peewee” Cruz, who improved to 14-0 (7 KOs). Pazos dropped to 14-8-1 (8 KOs). (more…)

Greg Jackson had his way with tough, but limited Paulo Souza over four rounds of a super welterweight scrap. Jackson was coming off a spectacular off-the-deck KO3 over Cornelius Whitlock four weeks ago. This one looked to go the same way as the winless Souza looked so ouitclassed, a KO seemed to be a foregone conclusion. Jackson deposited Souza to the canvas in the second, only to see him rise and come back for more. In the fourth, Souza went down again, but there was no dog in him as he scrapped his way to the finish, raising his fist in defiance, if not moral victory. Scores were unanimous at 40-34 across the board. Jackson moves to 5-1-1, 2 KOs while Souza looks for his first victory at 0-6. (more…)
