The 274lb MacKay used his extra weight advantage effectively behind a jarring left jab to force 200-pounder Lakopo on the back move consistently. The experienced visitor displayed good skills but was constantly outworked by his opponent. Scores at the conclusion Max Murphy 96-93, Ray Wheatley 98-92, Charlie Lucas 96-93. Lakopo, 38, had been the distance against former USA-based and highly regarded heavyweight Bowie Tupou in 2013 but lost by TKO5 to WBA rated David Aloua in 2014.

In other action, Australian based Samoan, cruiserweight Emosi Solitua( 5-1, 4 KOs) stopped Australian-based Tongan Walter Pupu’a (12-30, 8 KOs) in round two of a scheduled ten round bout with the WBF Australasian cruiserweight crown up for grabs. Solitua attacked Pupu’a in round one from opening bell, dropping him with solid barrage. Pupu’a was down again in round two and at 2.19 referee Charlie Lucas saved Pupu’a from further punishment and crowned Solitua. This was the second time Solitua had stopped Pupu’a as back in 2013 he did the job in three rounds.

Sergio ‘Maravilla’ Martinez decides to continue boxing career

After lengthy discussions with members of his team, now-former WBC Middleweight Champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez has decided to continue his boxing career.

Lewkowicz says Martinez will first undergo a full battery of head-to-toe testing from top specialists in New York, but pending full medical clearance, the former champion will be returning to the ring on a mission. (more…)
