Chris Avalos replacing injured Jessie Magdaleno; Casey Ramos of Texas in co-feature on August 1

World ranked super bantamweight Chris Avalos of Lancaster, California will replace injured Jessie Magdaleno of Las Vegas in the main event here Saturday night at the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco, Texas. Avalos will face Rey Perez of the Philippines on Top Rank’s Solo Boxeo Tecate – UniMas on Saturday, August 1.

Top Rank made the announcement today.

Magdaleno was injured in sparring in Las Vegas last Thursday. “I caught a sparring partner with a nice right hook on the top of his head. That punch caused a lot of pain in my right hand. When I took my glove off I had swollen knuckles on the hand. I hate not fighting but I will be back as soon as I can.”

Avalos, 25-3, 19 KOs, is ranked IBF #9. He last fought in a world title fight on February 28 in Belfast, Ireland where he was stopped by world champion Carl Frampton in the fifth round. (more…)

By Miguel Maravilla

After WBA, WBO, and IBF light heavyweight world champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev’s KO win over Nadjib Mohammedi Saturday night in Las Vegas, promoter Kathy Duva talked about Kovalev’s future plans. “He is going to be fighting in Moscow on November 28,” she said. “We’re looking to offer the fight and match him against Beterbiev.

Kovalev stated, “Whoever deserves the fight with me, I am ready for anyone. Pascal wants a rematch, or I don’t know. Whoever is ready. Right now I want to fight the WBC champion Adonis “Piece of Sh!t” Stevenson. Artur Beterbiev we will see. Andre Ward? Sure. I’m open for any great fighters.” (more…)

Yuniesky Gonzalez: They robbed me of this fight

By Miguel Maravilla

Despite outlanding and outworking former world champion Jean Pascal in punch stat numbers, light heavyweight Yuniesky Gonzalez suffered his first loss as a pro by unanimous decision on Saturday night in Las Vegas. “When I heard it was a unanimous decision, I knew it was for me. I feel I hurt Pascal numerous times. He has the experience to play games. They robbed me of this fight, they robbed my team, they robbed the Cuban boxing fans. Pascal was a walk in the park. I am looking for better fights. I would like to fight Kovalev or I would also like a rematch. I’ll fight anyone my promoter matches me up with.” (more…)

BJ Flores: He ran the whole night | Shumenov: I won the fight clearly

Cruiserweight B.J. Flores has commented on his unanimous decision loss to Beibut Shumenov on Saturday night in Las Vegas. “Beibut always comes forward, he’s very tough, but tonight he ran the whole night. It’s tough to win a fight when the guy is trying to run in circles. My punches were crisp and effective and I hurt him. He had nothing on his punches and never hurt me. I wobbled him in the twelfth round and then I went in to rush him. He kept moving back though.”

“I’m ready to get back in the ring, I’m fine. It was difficult to catch up with him because he wanted to move around so much. I learned in those last few rounds that even though he was moving around so much, I could pick up the tempo and bring the fight to him. You can’t fight a guy who isn’t trying to engage. You have to fight to win the fight. He was throwing jabs while I was trying to hurt him.”

———-

Shumenov stated, “B.J. is a strong guy but he was lunging while I was scoring points. I’m still in the learning process and I’m more comfortable as a cruiserweight. Boxing is an art. I used my skills, positioning, angles and footwork to win the fight. I feel blessed, I have a strong team that is like one. Without them, I wouldn’t have won the fight tonight. I followed the instructions from my corner and thought I won the fight clearly.

“I had extra motivation to make history. I first did that when I won the light heavyweight title in 10 fights and now I’m the first person from my country to win world titles in two different division. I’m very proud of that. Denis Lebedev is my main target. But I want to fight all the best and most dangerous cruiserweights in the world.”

WBO #6 super flyweight Cesar Juarez (17-3, 13 KOs) won an exciting twelve round unanimous decision over former IBF super flyweight champion and WBO #2, WBC #9 rated Juan Carlos “Zurdito” Sanchez (20-4-1, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Polideportivo Centenario in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. Sanchez, about a 10:1 favorite, was deducted one point for a headbutt in round one (leaving Juarez cut over the left eye), and it only got worse for him from there. Juarez dropped Sanchez in round ten, and pummeled a completely out of gas Zurdito the rest of the way. Sanchez fell completely out of the ring on his own in round twelve. Scores were 114-111, 114-111 and 114-112.

In a clash between former world champions, Moises “Moi” Fuentes (22-2-1, 12 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over Oswaldo Novoa (14-6-2, 9 KOs). Fuentes got off to a good start, dropping Novoa in round one. In round six, Fuentes was deducted a point for a low blow, but then ended the fight with a body shot in the same round. Time was 1:01.

In main event action, four-time world champion, Brian “The Hawaiian Punch” Viloria (36-4, 21KO) annihilated Omar Soto (23-12-2, 7KO), dropping him three times in the first round, the final time with a left hook. Time of the stoppage was 2:02 in round one and with the victory, Viloria wins the WBC fECARBbOX Flyweight title and puts himself back in title contention for a possible fifth world title. This was a rematch of their hotly contested 2010 matchup that Viloria won by split decision. It took Viloria just two minutes to erase the five years of any doubt of their previous fight.

In an eight round featherweight slugfest, Newly signed Top Rank featherweight Guy Robb (16-1, 7KO) survived the early bull rush of tough, but limited, Edwin Solis (6-4-3, 4KO) to hammer out a unanimous decision victory. All three judges were in consensus with a 79-73 score in favor of Robb. Solis endured a lot of late punishment but showed a lot of heart in defeat. There were no knockdowns in the bout.

In opening bout action from the Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, CA, Brazilian lightweight, William Silva (22-0, 13KO) impressively knocked out Hungarian fighter, Adam Mate (15-5, 8KO) at 2:18 of the fifth round with a perfectly placed right cross to the liver. It was the first fight in the USA for both fighters and the debut fight for Silva under the Top Rank banner. Silva is huge for a lightweight and could make some waves in the division. (more…)

Polischuk Captures Split Decision in Baltimore

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

The debut of professional boxing at Baltimore, MD’s Horseshoe Casino on July 24th contained competitive contests as well as solid knockout performances. The card was the maiden voyage for District Sports Promotions.

Welterweight “The Baby-Faced Assassin” Yurii Polischuk of Alexandria, VA captured a six-round split decision over Anthony Prescott of Cherry Hill, NJ in the main event. Neither man could establish complete control during the contest as both boxers were inaccurate and missed numerous opportunities. Polischuk, according to the judges, landed enough shots to win the contest on two of the judge’s scorecards. Judges Brent Bovell and John Gradowski scored the bout 58-56 for Polischuk while Dave Braslow saw the bout 58-56 for Prescott. (more…)

Kovalev ready for Mohammedi, rips Stevenson

Knockout king Sergey Kovalev has labelled Adonis Stevenson as “not a real champion” and dreams of capturing his WBC belt. The unified WBA, WBO and IBF light-heavyweight world champion has conquered all before him, including wins over the legendary Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal, but a showdown with 175-pound rival and current WBC champion Stevenson has eluded him.

“I don’t want to speak about him [Stevenson] at all because he’s not a real champion. He got lucky once against Chad Dawson when Dawson dropped his title against Andre Ward. Andre Ward destroyed him and he didn’t recover for the fight against Stevenson. He got lucky and right now is still ‘champion.’ It’s smart for the business but it’s not good for boxing,” said Kovalev. (more…)

A body shot finished the out-of-shape Castaneda, who weighed in seven pounds heavy. Time was 2:56. Buglioni was originally slated to challenge WBA “regular” super middleweight champion Fedor Chudinov, but that bout was postponed when the champ broke his nose in sparring. (more…)

The last guy who beat Floyd returns on Sunday

Serafim Todorov: I need 5 months to be ready for Mayweather

By Ognian Georgiev / Bulgaria Today

Serafim “Sarafa” Todorov (5-1, 1 KO), the last man who beat Floyd Mayweather, will make his return to the ring on Sunday. The 46-year-old veteran will fight on a small fight card in Pernik, Bulgaria. He will face the Bulgarian journeyman Aleksandar Chukaleiski (1-5) in a four round bout. This will be the first fight for Todorov since 2003. His pro career wasn’t impressive and the main reason was that he wasn’t able to find a proper manager or promoters to build him up.

“I am starting to find my old form,” Todorov told Fightnews.com and Bulgaria Today. “I am becoming better with each training session. The speed is here, the boxing vision is here, the only problem is my conditioning. When I went to physical examinations, the guys there were impressed by the state of my body and the results of the tests. I am looking forward to enter once again into the ring and to feel how I will be standing there. There isn’t any pressure, because I had participated in so many international events.” (more…)

Carl Frampton says he will stay at super-bantamweight, tells Scott Quigg to “bring it on”

By James Slater

Carl Frampton, the IBF super-bantamweight champion, against Scott Quigg, the WBA “regular” champ at 122-pounds is the fight all of Britain wants to see. Yet last weekend – when Frampton got off the floor to decision a tough and determined Alejandro Gonzalez Junior, and Quigg blew away seasoned campaigner Kiko Martinez – it seemed the two were as far apart as ever when it came to making the fight.

Quigg’s promoter Eddie Hearn went as far as to state how he believed Frampton would move up to featherweight, the Irishman using his struggle to make the super-bantam limit as an excuse to move up. But Frampton, today speaking with BBC Radio, said he will stay at 122-pounds and he also called out Quigg. Frampton, however, believes he is the bigger draw of the two fighters and as such should be in control when it comes to negotiating the fight. (more…)
