Soliman: I definitely felt I won

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former IBF middleweight champion Sam Soliman has commented on his split decision loss to Dominic Wade on Friday night in Shelton, Washington. “I definitely felt I won, and I think Wade knows I won, too,” Soliman said. “He never hurt me once. My knee held up 100 percent. The knockdown that he got credit for wasn’t even a knockdown. It didn’t come from a punch. He literally pushed me down.

“That everyone after the fight came up to me and said I won takes some of the sting out of not getting the decision. These kinds of decisions can bring some fighters down, but this will only make me stronger. I don’t agree with the decision at all, but this is boxing and I have to accept it. I really want to thank Showtime for giving me the opportunity to fight on ShoBox. I think I showed the world tonight that I have a lot left.”

The Punch Stats seemed to support Soliman’s claim. He landed 64 of 228 power punches to Wade’s 35 of 99 and overall connected on 98 of 450 punches compared to 74 of 317 from Wade.

Mboyane outpoints Tembo

By Ron Jackson

Former South African and current WBO Inter- Continental bantamweight champion Klaas Mboyane beat Tapiwo Tembo from Zimbabwe on ten round split decision at the Birchwood Hotel and Conference Centre in Boksburg on Friday night. The scores were 97-94 and 97-93 for Mboyane and 96-94 for Tembo.

The southpaw Mboyane (53.26 kgs) was the aggressor throughout with his superior hand speed against Tembo (53.00 kgs) who suffered a cut near the left after a clash of heads in the second round. Tembo went down from an unintentional low blow in the seventh round as referee Simon Xamlashe gave him enough time to recover before allowing the fight to continue. Mboyane improved his record to 18-10-2, 9 KOs, and Tembo’s reported record dropped to 8-4, 5 KOs. (more…)

Undefeated middleweight prospect Dominic “Lights Out” Wade (18-0, 12 KOs) won a ten round split decision over former world champion Sam “King” Soliman (44-13, 18 KOs) on Friday night at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington. Soliman’s awkward style gave Wade all kinds of problems. Wade was credited with a knockdown in round four, although it looked more like a push during a Soliman rush. The knockdown ultimately made the difference. Scores were 97-92, 95-94 Wade and 96-93 Soliman.

Unbeaten 19-year-old super welterweight prospect Erickson “The Hammer” Lubin (11-0, 8 KOs) scored a first round KO over Ayi Bruce (23-10, 15 KOs). Lubin put Bruce down twice, the second time for the count. Time was 2:05.

Unbeaten heavyweight Oscar “Kaboom” Rivas (17-0, 12 KOs) scored a first round KO over Jason Pettaway (17-3, 10 KOs). Rivas dropped Pettaway in round one, then hit him when he was down. Rivas was deducted two points. Rivas dropped Pettaway two more times. Time was 2:25.

Unbeaten lightweight and 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Captain Jamel Herring (12-0, 7 KOs), whose scheduled ShoBox fight against Oscar Cortes was cancelled Thursday when Cortes came in overweight, fought on the non-televised portion of the event and won a lopsided eight-round decision over Hector Velasquez (56-26-3, 38 KOs). photos

Undefeated WBC #2, WBA #3, IBF #3, WBO #2 super middleweight contender Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (32-0, 24 KOs) scored a dominant ten round unanimous decision over WBC #9, WBA #14 Derek “The Black Lion” Edwards (27-5-1, 14 KOs) on Friday night at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas. Ramirez looked sharp, connecting with impressive combinations against Edwards. Edwards was rocked at the end of round four and barely survived the round. The fight was all Ramirez, but Edwards scored tremendous heart to go the distance. Scores were 100-90 on all cards.

In a clash of one-beaten former world title challengers, Diego Magdaleno (28-1, 12 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over Jose “Chelo” Gonzalez (24-2, 19 KOs) in a scheduled twelve-round lightweight bout. The bout ended when Magdaleno connected with a body shot that sent Gonzalez to the deck. Referee Luis Pabon ruled it a low blow, but Gonzalez didn’t want to continue.

Unbeaten 2012 Olympic middleweight silver medalist Esquiva Falcao (10-0, 7 KOs) scored a brutal four-round beatdown of Aaron Drake (14-9, 9 KOs) on Friday night at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas.

Super featherweight Luis Castro (9-1, 7 KOs) scored an exciting second round KO over Victor Rosas (6-3, 2 KOs). After both fighters visited the canvas in round one, Castro floored Rosas again in round two to end it. (more…)

WBA #14-rated Tony “Lightning” Luis (20-3, 7 KOs) returned to the ring for the first time since his loss to England’s Derry Matthews for a WBA belt last April. Luis outpointed journeyman Edward Valdez (13-11-2, 3 KOs) over eight by scores of 80-72, 80-72 and 79-73.

Super middleweight “Mean” Joe Greene (26-1, 17 KOs) returned to the ring and stopped overmatched Guy Packer (5-40-2, 2 KOs) in round three of a scheduled six. Southpaw Greene landed a straight left to the mid-section that caused a delayed reaction as Packer took a knee. Packer was bothered by body shots over the next two rounds taking another knee in the third. After unanswered barrages from Greene, referee Charlie Fitch stopped the fight at 2:05.

Heavyweight knockout artist Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (14-0-1, 11 KOs) scored a first round TKO over local pug Excell Holmes (2-7-1, 1 KO) in a scheduled six-rounder. Time was 2:44.

Cleverly set to face Fonfara in autumn clash

Nathan Cleverly is set to face Andrzej Fonfara in a huge light heavyweight showdown this autumn. Former WBO World champion Cleverly stepped back down to 175lbs in London in May after spending 2014 at cruiserweight, and can take a major step in becoming a two-time Light Heavyweight ruler by beating the Chicago-based Pole in an explosive looking contest. Fonfara produced fireworks in April by stopping Julio Cesar Chavez Jr inside nine rounds in California to land the WBC International title, and Cleverly’s promoter Eddie Hearn says the fight will be confirmed soon after the Welshman’s team chose to face Fonfara after being inundated with potential foes.

“We have had lots of big fight offers come in from Nathan over the past few months and we have taken our time to choose the right one,” said Hearn. “The Juergen Braehmer fight was one we were very close to taking but just felt that after his big win against Chavez, Fonfara was the perfect fight on the World stage. We are working with his team on the date expected to be in October and we will release news shortly.”

Sam Soliman: “The right knee that I hurt against Jermain Taylor is 100 percent. I’ll be wearing a brace but it is nothing I’ll be thinking about. I had four months of rehab, but I’ve been injury-free in the seven months since.

“I don’t want to be a stepping stone for anybody. I feel his promoters and advisors made a mistake in picking me. I still have plenty of fight left. They could have picked a lot of other fighters if they were looking to make a name for Wade. For me to still be fighting has nothing to do with age or special genes.

Undefeated WBA super lightweight world champion Jessie Vargas and former two-division world champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley Jr. faced off Thursday during the final press conference for their WBO welterweight world title fight on Saturday at StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Timothy Bradley: “This place brings back horrific memories against Ruslan Provodnikov…Saturday night’s gonna be an entertaining fight. Once again I’m fighting a young, hungry, determined champion. Like I always say, ‘Bring on the best!’

“I have nothing against you Erik Morales. What happened two days ago on that rant was because as soon as I got out of the car, I’m tired, I’m hungry, I gotta take a piss, and I hear somebody saying something negative about myself and my team. It kinda caught me by surprise. So when I went off on that rant, it was because I was angry because of everything that was going on. So I got a lot of respect for you, Erik. I appreciate what you do in the sport. You were a tremendous fighter, Hall of Fame fighter, so there’s no bad blood. I’m just letting you know that.”

Jessie Vargas: “Erik knows what’s best. I want to fight as he did, but in my style as well…I can assure you from this side that we won’t stop throwing punches.”

Erik Morales: “The Mexican boxing style is the best in the world. It has emotion, it has power and ‘muchos blanquillos.’ Jessie Vargas is ready.”

Joel Diaz: “Tim Bradley is ready to go…he fights just like a Mexican as well. Everybody knows he has a lot of ‘blanquillos.'”
