Promoter: Ruenroeng better than both Chocolatito and Estrada

IBF flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng (16-0, 5 KOs) is the best 112-pound boxer in the world proclaimed Thailand’s leading IBF promoter Jimmy Chaichotchuang after Ruenroeng clearly defeated former champion John Riel Casimero.

“Ruenroeng showed he is the best flyweight in the world by easily outpointing Casimero,” said Chaichotchuang. “Amant knocked down Casimero two times, in rounds two and seven, but had a point deducted in round eleven in an exciting twelve round fight. Ruenroeng would also defeat the WBC champion Roman Gonzalez and WBA/WBO champion Juan Estrada. Thailand has a great champion and is very proud of Amnat Ruenroeng.”

Bronco Billy demolishes late sub in first round

50-year-old heavyweight contender “Bronco” Billy Wright (48-4, 39 KOs) has done it again. Wright needed just 97 seconds to crush late sub Esteban Hillman Tababary (25-16-2, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the Asociación Beniana de Boxeo in Trinidad, Beni, Bolivia. Now riding a 19-fight winning streak, 11 of which came by first round knockout, Bronco Billy is unbeaten since 1998. “At 50-years old I’m still going strong,” said Wright. “The WBC has promised me a higher ranking if I can continue to win fights. I’m trying to get a fight with someone in the top 10.

“I don’t see any other 50 year old heavyweights out there making noise, knocking out men with winning records,” Bronco Billy continued. “All I want is an opportunity to fight for the world title. I’ll fight any highly ranked fighter out there. I believe there isn’t anyone in the heavyweight division that can handle my power.”

Mighty Mo wins vacant WBO NABO jr welterweight title in Dallas

It has been a long, winding and at times hard road for Dallas native jr welterweight Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker (18-0-2, 14KO), but on Friday night at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in front of his hometown fans Hooker captured the first significant belt of his career winning the vacant WBO NABO jr welterweight title against the previously undefeated Eduardo Galindo (10-1-1, 7KO) out of Mexico. With the TKO victory, Hooker is now ranked #12 by the WBO.

After Galindo was unable to continue after the 5th round per the ringside doctor due to a nasty cut over his right eye, Hooker, after some brief jubilation with his team, ran to one of the corners of the ring and down to his knees as if to tell God his prayers have been answered. His look was equal excitement as well as relief that this moment had finally arrived.

“It feels great. It’s amazing, it’s amazing. I’m blessed, I’m blessed,” Hooker told Fightnews right after the fight. (more…)

Soliman: I definitely felt I won

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former IBF middleweight champion Sam Soliman has commented on his split decision loss to Dominic Wade on Friday night in Shelton, Washington. “I definitely felt I won, and I think Wade knows I won, too,” Soliman said. “He never hurt me once. My knee held up 100 percent. The knockdown that he got credit for wasn’t even a knockdown. It didn’t come from a punch. He literally pushed me down.

“That everyone after the fight came up to me and said I won takes some of the sting out of not getting the decision. These kinds of decisions can bring some fighters down, but this will only make me stronger. I don’t agree with the decision at all, but this is boxing and I have to accept it. I really want to thank Showtime for giving me the opportunity to fight on ShoBox. I think I showed the world tonight that I have a lot left.”

The Punch Stats seemed to support Soliman’s claim. He landed 64 of 228 power punches to Wade’s 35 of 99 and overall connected on 98 of 450 punches compared to 74 of 317 from Wade.
