Juarez is now looking for a rematch with Ava Knight.

Upcoming super featherweight world title challenger Miguel “Mickey” Roman (47-11, 36 KOs) prepped for WBC champ Takashi Miura by scoring a third round TKO over Juan Jose Farias (16-7-1, 11 KOs).

2012 Mexican Olympian Oscar Molina (9-0, 7 KOs) outpointed Luis Donaldo Prieto (8-3, 4 KOs) in a junior middleweight six rounder.

Estrada stops Segura in round eleven

Photos: Zanfer Promotions

WBA/WBO flyweight champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada (27-2, 20 KOs) scored an eleventh round TKO over former world champion Giovani “Guerrero Azteca” Segura (32-4-1, 28 KOs) on Saturday night at the Arena Mexico in Mexico City. Estrada’s reach, movement and crisp combinations paid dividends as he largely neutralized Segura’s pressure and dominated the fight. The bout was stopped in round eleven to save Segura from further punishment. Time was 1:33.

Earlier, female boxing legend Jackie “Princesa Azteca” Nava (30-4-3, 13 KOs) scored a majority decision over 47-year-old WBC female super bantamweight champion Alicia “Slick” Ashley (21-9-1, 3 KOs). Scores were 98-92, 95-95, 97-93. photos

Broner, Matthysse, Berto victorious

By Bob Ryder at ringside
Photos: Tom Hogan – Hoganphotos / Golden Boy Promotions

Former world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner had almost more than he bargained for in the person of a gritty and determined Emmanuel Taylor as a big left hook knockdown in the fight’s fading seconds sealed a close win for Cincinnati’s favorite son. Taylor continually chugged forward never giving Broner a respite. By spending too much time along the ropes allowing Taylor to fire away,Broner gave the huge pre fight underdog a chance that he readily took advantage of. Broner landed the cleaner shots but Taylor never wavered from his plan to press forward. Broner suffered a cut eye in the 11th round but it was not a factor at the late stage of the fight. Taylor seemed to be out hustling Broner in the final round when Adrien landed the nice left hand that dropped Taylor and locked up the fight. Scores were 115-112 and 116-111 x 2. No title on the line in this one as Broner advances to (29-1, 22 KO’s) while Taylor off a great effort goes to (18-3, 12 KO’s).

Lucas Matthysse exposed the undefeated Roberto Ortiz with an easy albeit slightly controversial KO win at 2:45 of round two. After a slow feel ‘em out first round, the light welterweights started to get down to business in the second. Matthysse seemed to be trying to time the slightly awkward style of his Mexican opponent when he unloaded a solid punch to the gut that dropped Roberto. Although certainly hurt by the shot, Ortiz looked able to get up as he watched the referee’s count. Whether stunned or simply misreading the ref’s signals, he failed to stand prior to the ten count. Replays showed he may have been rising before the fatal ten but the referee had already waved it over. Ortiz suffers his first loss at (31-1-1, 24 KO’s). Matthysse takes the WBC Silver title and is now (36-3, 34 KO’s).

Andre Berto, loser in his last two fights, got back in the win column with a solid performance against Steve Upsher Chambers. Berto landed the harder shots throughout. Chambers managed to get in some solid punches of his own but did not have the power to disrupt Berto’s attack. Chambers’ eyes began to show swelling as early as the fourth round and by the bouts end his face was badly swollen. Berto was too strong and stayed in control the whole way. Chambers put in a game effort but he was totally outgunned in this one as he falls to (24-4-1, 6 KO’s). Welterweight Berto with this much needed win moves up to (29-3, 22 KO’s) (more…)

Ex-champion ‘Baby Bull’ Diaz defeats Cardenas

Former unified world lightweight champion Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz (35-4-1, 19 KOs) scored an entertaining ten round unanimous decision over Carlos Cardenas (21-9, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Laredo Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas. As always, Diaz applied the pressure and unleashed a barrage of non-stop punching, but Cardenas was more than willing to fire back. In the end, scores were 97-93, 98-92, 99-91 for the “Baby Bull.”

Unbeaten welterweight Brad Soloman (23-0, 9 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over former world title challenger Freddy “Riel” Hernandez (30-8-0-1, 20 KOs). The bout was stopped due to a cut over Hernandez’ right eye caused by a Soloman left hook. Time was 1:36. Hernandez has now lost seven of his last eight fights, all against top competition with the win coming against Luis Collazo.

2012 London Olympics light heavyweight gold medalist Egor Mekhontsev (5-0, 5 KOs) impressively destroyed veteran Samuel Miller (28-9, 25 KOs). Mekhontsev dropped Miller in rounds two and three and got the stoppage with his follow-up barrage in round three. Time was 2:11. (more…)

Frampton wins IBF 122lb title

By Karl Freitag

Undefeated super bantamweight Carl Frampton (19-0, 13 KOs) dethroned IBF world champion champion Kiko Martinez (31-5, 23 KOs) by twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the outdoor Titanic Quarter in Belfast, Northern Ireland. After dominating the first four rounds, Frampton dropped Martinez with a right hand in round five. Martinez came on a bit down the stretch, but Frampton closed strong and left no doubt. Scores were 119-108, 119-108, 118-111.

WBO European featherweight titleholder Marco McCullough (11-1, 7 KOs) scored an eight round stoppage over the much smaller former IBF super flyweight world champion Dmitry “Baby” Kirillov (31-5-1, 10 KOs) over ten rounds. Kirillov called it quits after round eight.

A bout for the IBF inter-continental middleweight title between Eamonn O’Kane (12-1-1, 6 KOs) and Virgilijus Stapulionis (23-3-1, 16 KOs) ended in a technical draw. Stapulionis dropped O’Kane in round one and had him in big trouble but O’Kane survived the round. Stapulionis also suffered a bad cut from an unintentional headbutt and was docked a point for “illegal use of vasoline” between rounds. The bout was stopped at 4:47 of round four due to the cut, so without four complete rounds the bout was a technical draw.

Unbeaten super flyweight Jamie Conlan (13-0, 8 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Jose Estrella (14-6-1, 10 KOs). Scores were 97-93, 97-93, 99-92.

Non-stop boxing action for fight fans today

By Karl Freitag

A lot of big names in action tonight on a marathon Saturday that offers nearly 10 hours of live boxing.

Perhaps the most interesting fight is the clash in Mexico City between WBA/WBO flyweight champion Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada (26-2-0, 19 KOs) and former champion Giovani “Guerrero Azteca” Segura (32-3-1, 28 KOs). Oddsmakers have the taller Estrada pegged as a -230 favorite against Segura (+190). beIN Sports will televise.

In Belfast, Northern Ireland, IBF super bantamweight champion Kiko Martinez (31-4, 23 KOs) is expected to lose his title to undefeated Carl Frampton (18-0, 13 KOs). Frampton, who previously stopped Martinez in nine rounds in 2013, is a -550 favorite, while Martinez backers can get +425. AWE TV will televise.

Showtime presents a tripleheader from Cincinnati, Ohio, with each favorite set at odds of at least 10:1. “The Problem” Adrien Broner (28-1, 22 KOs) is a -1165 pick to beat Emmanuel Taylor (18-2, 12 KOs)in the super lightweight main event. Former interim super lightweight titleholder Lucas “La Maquina” Matthysse (35-3, 33 KOs) is a -1050 favorite to pin the first “L” on unbeaten Roberto “Massa” Ortiz (31-0-1, 24 KOs), and former welterweight world champion Andre Berto (28-3, 22 KOs) is an off the charts -6000 favorite to take care of business against Steve Upsher (24-3-1, 6 KOs). Earlier, Showtime Extreme will present several undercard bouts.

Finally, UniMas will air a clash between former world lightweight champion Juan ‘Baby Bull’ Diaz (34-4-1, 19 KOs) and Carlos Cardenas (21-8, 14 KOs) from Laredo, Texas. No odds posted on that bout as of this writing.

Kiko seeks revenge, Frampton guarantees a win

By Graham Houston

Carl Frampton, fighting at home in Belfast, is favoured to confirm superiority and take Kiko Martinez’s IBF junior featherweight championship in their rematch on Saturday (TV coverage on BoxNation in Britain and AWE in the U.S.), but Martinez is fighting better than at any stage in his career, with three consecutive stoppage wins in title fights.

Although Frampton stopped the Spanish boxer in the ninth round in Belfast in February 2013, he will arguably face a much more formidable version of Martinez, whose boxing just looks more consistent and generally solid since he began training under the direction of Gabriel Sarmiento.

It isn’t so much that Martinez has improved technically — he is still much the same power-and-pressure fighter. However, Martinez returns to Belfast with the soaring confidence of a fighter who has blasted his way to victory over world champions in his last three fights, with two of those victories coming away from home.

Kell Brook stable after Tenerife knife attack

Boxer Kell Brook is in a stable condition in hospital in Tenerife after an attack whilst on holiday with his family. The IBF Welterweight champion was admitted to hospital in the early hours Thursday morning after suffering a serious stab wound to his left leg.

Commenting from his hospital bed, Kell Brook said, “I was out enjoying a night out before returning home to the UK when I was the victim of an unprovoked attack. I’m devastated right now after being on such a high having achieved my dream of becoming World Champion in Los Angeles last month. This is obviously a major setback but the thought of defending my title is what’s keeping me positive right now. I want to thank everyone for their support and ask for privacy for myself and my family at this time. Make no mistake – I will be back.”

Brook will spend the weekend in hospital and will return to Sheffield on Monday to begin his rehabilitation. (more…)

Gonzalez stops Yaegashi to win WBC 112lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos: Sumio Yamada

Unbeaten Nicaraguan Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (40-0, 34 KOs), 112, collected his third world championship when he lopsidedly kept whipping defending titlist Akira Yaegashi (20-4, 10 KOs), 112, floored him in the third, steadily piled up points and finally decked the bruised and battered champ to halt him at 2:24 of the ninth rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.

Yaegashi didn’t utilize his footwork as expected and gamely mixed it up from the second round on, but couldn’t win even a point although he showed his heart and gameness. Gonzalez was a much better boxer than Yaegashi, as expected, and he showed his excellence in mercilessly hitting the target whose face was puffed and whose left eyebrow was badly swollen with the Nicaraguan’s accurate and effective combinations.

Inoue keeps WBC 108lb belt by stopping Smartlek in 11

By Joe Koizumi
Photos: Sumio Yamada

Unbeaten WBC light-flyweight champ Naoya Inoue (7-0, 6 KOs), 107.75, Japan, kept his belt as he battered Thailander Samartlek Kokietgym (17-5, 5 KOs), 107.25, from all angles, dropped him twice and finally halted him with furious combinations at 1:08 of the eleventh round on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.

Inoue, a 21-year-old genius who acquired the throne in his sixth pro bout (after an amateur mark of 75-6, 48 stoppages), caught the game Thailander with effective shots upstairs and downstairs, and send him to the deck in the fourth and sixth so that people expected an earlier stoppage. But Samartlek, 29, displayed his unbelievable durability after his last visit to the deck in the sixth. When Inoue accelerated his attack midway in round eleven, Mexican referee Gelasio Perez made a well-timed and well-received halt to save the battered loser from further punishment.

———-

Ex-Olympic gold medalist in London, Japan’s middleweight prospect, WBC#12 Ryota Murata (5-0, 4 KOs), 161.25, defeated Mexican national champ Adrian Luna (17-3-1, 11 KOs), 162, by a unanimous decision (98-92, 99-91, 100-90) over ten hard-fought rounds.

———-

Unbeaten 115-pound prospect, Ryo Matsumoto (12-0, 10 KOs), 117.5, looked very impressive when he dispatched former WBA flyweight and super-flyweight titlist Denkaosen Kaovichit (63-5-1, 26 KOs), 117.73, with a vicious body shot at 0:32 into the second round of a scheduled eight. Matsumoto, ex-national high school champ, floored Denkaosen with a long overhand right early in the second and then displayed a coup-de-grace to the breadbasket.

———-

World-rated light-fly, unbeaten Takuma Inoue (3-0, 1 KO), 111.75, the younger brother of the world titlist Naoya, still 18, beautifully finished Thailand’s Chanachai Sor Siamchai, 112, at 0:51 of the second session in the first bout of this show.

Roger Bloodworth on Adamek-Szpilka: There’s no faking in the ring. You are who you are

Former two division (light heavyweight and cruiserweight) world champion and heavyweight contender Tomasz Adamek (49-3, 29 KO) will take on one of the new talents Artur Szpilka (16-1, 12 KO) in what was an unthinkable fight just six months ago. Everything changed when Adamek lost to professionally inexperienced Vyacheslav Glazkov. The 37-year-old Adamek seriously thought about retiring. “Coming back after the Glazkov fight was an Adamek and family decision. I had nothing to do with that. It’s up to the fighter to dedicate himself again. But it’s great, that Tomek is coming back against Szpilka in his native Poland. Adamek does not need extra motivation, but he will have one, no doubt,” said Adamek’s trainer Roger Bloodworth in a Fightnews.com interview. Adamek-Szpilka, promoted by Polsat and Sferis Knockout Promotions, will be Polsat Boxing Night “Moment of Truth” main event on November 8 in Krakow, Poland. (more…)
