Late result: Tahdooahnippah tops Sneed

Formerly world rated middleweight “Comanche Boy” George Tahdooahnippah (34-1-2, 24 KOs) cruised to a one-sided unanimous decision victory over ten rounds to the very game Tracy Sneed (27-3, 21 KOs) last Saturday at the Remington Park Casino in Oklahoma City, OK. Scores were 97-92 by all three judges. Tahdooahnippah was in control of the fight every round. Sneed was awarded a questionable knockdown in the third round. Tahdooahnippah rebounded by dominating every round with his speed and defense. This was Tahdooahnippah’s first ten round bout that went the distance and was very confident in his conditioning. “I was very confident in my skills and speed. I felt tremendous. As always, I wish I could have knocked him out, but I’ll settle for the victory. I will take a few days off and be back in the gym to get ready for my next fight.” Tahdooahnippah picked up the vacant Oklahoma State Super Middleweight title with his victory over Sneed. The Comanche Boy looks to get back in the ring in as soon as possible with details soon to follow. The event was brought to you by HD Boxing.

Huck aiming to tie Nelson’s record for most defenses

On Saturday night, WBO cruiserweight champion “Captain” Marco Huck (37-2-1, 26 KOs) will attempt to equal Johnny Nelson’s record for the most title defenses in the cruiserweight division when he faces Mirko Larghetti (21-0, 13 KOs) at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle/Westphalia, Germany.

“Nelson was an exceptional athlete who did not back down from any challenge. I am no different,” said Huck. “His style of fighting was not the most spectacular but it was successful. It’s an honor to get the chance to equal his record. But in contrast to Nelson, I will not struggle against an Italian in my thirteenth defense. My aim is to beat Larghetti first, then Nelson’s record!”

Love looking to avoid Porky’s revenge

Undefeated super middleweight contender J’Leon Love steps into the ring on Saturday against Rogelio “Porky” Medina at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The ten rounder will headline a ShoBox card. The unbeaten Love (18-0, 10 KOs) will risk his unbeaten ledger against the heavy-handed Medina (32-6, 26 KOs) who lost to Love’s stablemate Badou Jack last year.

“If my opponent feels that just because I lost to Jack then he will have an easy night, then he’s in for a surprise,” said Medina. “My trainer and I have been watching a few of Love’s fights and have been working on some things in the gym that we can take advantage of. I think Love was actually given too much time to recover from the knockdown against [Marco Antonio] Periban. I know that he can be hurt and when I hurt him I plan to be more aggressive than Periban was. I need to take advantage of that.”

Love stated, “Badou isn’t just a training partner; he’s like a brother to me. He told me I can’t take Medina lightly, he told me to be careful because this guy can put you down. He’s tough, he’s going to bring it and I have to stay sharp…The guy has a lot of power but your hands can’t hit what your eyes can’t see.”
