John Moraga: Something to Prove

When your trade is stepping into the Octagon and attempting to break the will of another individual, there is always going to be something to prove. There will never be a moment in a fighter’s career where this won’t be true, even in the most basic sense. Yet, some fighters shun the idea and twist the concept around to where the only people they have to please are themselves and those who have invested the time and effort to help them improve, and believe the only pressure which exists is the type they chose to wear . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Abatangelo: I’m coming to Copenhagen to avenge Italy’s honor

Stefano “The Hammer” Abatangelo (18-3-1, 6 KOs) is out for revenge! The Turin-based boxer travels to Denmark to face Erik Skoglund (20-0, 11 KOs) for the European (EU) and IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight titles on September 13 at TAP1 in Copenhagen. The 32 year-old has vowed to end the young Swedes winning streak against Italian opposition and avenge his countrymen’s defeats. “I know that Erik has enjoyed some success versus Italians in the past, but his run is coming to an end on September 13. I might have been overcautious when I fought his team mate Juergen Braehmer last year. But this time, I won’t make the same mistake: I respect Erik, but I am ready to walk through him with my pressure.”

The Italian’s coach Dino Orsa also believes Skoglund will have met his match when he squares off against Abatangelo in the Danish capital. “Erik may have been able to get past Lorenzo Di Giacomo and Danilo D’Agata as of late, but Stefano will offer him something different,” said Orsa. “Erik better not be fooled by Stefano’s tactics in the Braehmer fight: this time we will come with a different attitude. Erik is a good fighter, but he is nowhere near Braehmer’s level. We are coming to win, we will not be cautious and we will be returning to Italy with the belts!”

A warm night near the ocean in Del Mar, CA, was the host for Jorge Marron Productions in association with Paco Presents and A&T Gym’s “Battle in the Saddle” inside the Paddock area of the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Along with the five professional bouts, a special attraction exhibition fight between horse racing jockeys Elvis “Heartbreak” Trujillo and Corey “Knockout” Nakatani headlined the night. Judged by fans picked out the crowd, Panama’s Elvis Trujillo won an entertaining three rounder via unanimous decision and even dropped the Nakatani in the third round with a straight right.

In the main event of the pro boxing card, Ruben Garcia (11-0, 5KOs) of Mexico City was awarded a controversial unanimous decision over Javier Gallo (29-10-1, 12KOs) of Buena Park, CA, by way of Tijuana over a super bantamweight six rounds. (more…)

Western Alliance 14: Full Report

In the main event Nathaniel May claimed the WBO Asia Pacific Youth Super Featherweight Title with an impressive unanimous points victory over James Mokoginta.

The 19 year old May, was quicker and used slick movement throughout the fight. However May was lucky not to be disqualified in round 8 when retaliating to a low blow he received from Mokoginta. May took some time to recover, but upon resumption seemed to deliberately hit Mokoginta with a low blow that had his opponent on the canvas in a spot of bother. May received a warning from experienced referee Gary Ingraham and after Mokoginta was given time to recover, the fight continued, where May cruised to his point’s victory. Judges scores were 99-91, 99-91 and 97-93.

This boxing event at the WA Italian Club in North Perth last night, but it was really all about one special little girl. The Perth boxing community came together and got behind a worthy cause at Western Alliance 14 – “Fighting For Kira”. (more…)

Results from South Korea

In a ten-round non-title super bantamweight main event, current WBC World Youth super bantamweight champion Yeajoon Kim (9-1-2, 4 KOs) took on Thai journeyman Susu Sithjadaeng (7-5, 2 KOs). Kim, one of the few glimmers on the desolate horizon of professional boxing in South Korea, has two nicknames: “Pacquiweather” and “Troublemaker.” The first comes from his impetus to fuse the best aspects of both the would-be Sarangeti Senator and Money Team Magnate. The second derives from his habit of arriving at the scales overweight.

“Pacquiweather” Kim captured the WBC World Youth super bantamweight title in Kanazawa, Japan in April against local Akihiro Matsumoto in an impressive come-from-behind TKOs 9 stoppage. Today’s bout was originally scheduled to be Kim’s first title defense, but that plan had to be scrapped due to various problems between the KBC (Korean Boxing Commission) and recently established KBF (Korean Boxing Federation), under whose auspices this promotion took place.

TUF Latin America – Episode 2 Preview

It was very clear from the debut episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America that the divide between the two teams living in the house this season may be wider than any cast in the history of the show. It’s quite common for the international versions of the series to feature the most hostile relationships as home country pride goes on the line, and it’s also natural for the fighters on each team to stick with the guys from their native land . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Frampton says he “can see the hate in Martinez’ eyes”

By James Slater

A lot has happened to super-bantamweights Carl Frampton and Kiko Martinez since their exciting February 2013 meeting that was won by Frampton. Spaniard Martinez bounced back from the 9th-round stoppage loss he suffered at the hands of the unbeaten star from Belfast, winning the IBF crown that will be on the line on Saturday night.

Frampton has grown and grown, winning all 18 of his pro bouts, two of these wins coming after the win over Martinez; while Martinez, the older man by a year at age 27, has won four in a row since being stopped for the only time in his career. And with so much on the line in the rematch – a world title, revenge for Martinez and the futures of both men – fans can expect a memorable, perhaps savage fight at the purpose-built arena at The Titanic Quarter in Northern Ireland.

Speaking with Ben Dirs of BBC Sport, Frampton said he “can see the hate” in the eyes of the reigning IBF champion. (more…)

Porky Medina Speaks

By Karl Freitag

“I knew in the beginning that he was going to box so I was focused on cutting off the ring and applying pressure at all time,” a jubilant Porky Medina said after knocking out previously unbeaten, world-ranked J’Leon Love in the third round on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

“I was very surprised the fight ended like it did when it did,” continued Medina. “I expected to win but not in this kind of explosive fashion this early in the fight…I would love to fight next for the WBC title against champion Anthony Dirrell.”

Love was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for observation. He left on his own recognizance.

It was one of the upsets of the year. The 16:1 favorite Love was unbeaten and headed toward a world title shot while Medina entered a loser in three of his last four bouts. Not even Medina expected an ending like that.
