Saturday night at the Valley Forge Casino, in Valle Forge, PA, undefeated Philly junior welterweight Naim Nelson (12-0-1, 1KO) was lucky to keep his undefeated record intact as he escaped with an unpopular majority draw with Wilmington, Delaware’s “Rockin” Ryan Belasco (18-6-4, 3KOs) in the tightly contested eight round main event for the vacant UBF All America junior welterweight title. In the co-feature of the five bout card promoted by Kings Promotions and Peltz Boxing, Frankie Santos DeAlba (14-1-2, 5KOs) retained his UBF All America super super featherweight strap with a tough, but well deserved eight round unanimous decision victory over Jesse Carradine (8-4-2, 4KOs).

Rances Barthelemy defended his IBF junior lightweight world championship against Fernando David Saucedowith a dominating unanimous decision, scored 120-108 by all three judges, Saturday night at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. Barthelemy (21-0, 12 KOs) controlled the bout from the opening bell and was the more active and accurate fighter, throwing 819 punches to Saucedo’s 382. Saucedo (52-6-3, 8, KOs) tried to counter, but he wasn’t quick enough to land anything meaningful against the elusive Cuban. Barthelemy, who landed 50 percent of his power shots, employed a diverse attack of uppercuts, hooks and jabs and fought with his hands down and by his side for most of the fight.

“It was a good fight,” Barthelemy said. “Saucedo is a veteran guy. In one moment, I thought I was going to knock him out, but he knows how to make the fight last. I want Mikey Garcia. They say he’s the best. I say I’m the best. Let’s settle it.”

Saucedo didn’t win a single round and was outclassed in his United States debut. “I did everything I could,” Saucedo said. “We gave it our all but he is just a stronger and bigger guy. He’s a very good fighter, but he’s too big for this weight division.” (more…)

WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (57-8, 48 KOs) scored an eleventh round TKO over former multi-division champ Jorge “Travieso” Arce (62-8-2, 49 KOs) on Saturday night at the brand new Centro de Usos Múltiples (CUM) in Arce’s hometown of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. After a slow start, Gonzalez threw Arce to the canvas in round three, which caused things to open up. Gonzalez then caught Arce with a left hook at the end of the round and dropped him. Great exchanges in round four. Open scoring had Gonzalez up 39-35, 39-35 on two cards and 37-37 after four. Gonzalez dropped Arce hard again at the end of round five. Another knockdown in round nine as Gonzales patiently broke down Arce. Gonzalez, normally a vicious finisher, almost seemed to be carrying Arce the last few rounds, content to let the veteran warrior end his career on his feet. The bout was finally waved off by referee Johnny Callas at 2:43 of round eleven. The 35-year-old Arce promptly announced his retirement after the bout.

We love him and we miss him.”

In his first fight in his home state in five years, former light heavyweight world champion “Bad” Chad Dawson (32-4, 18 KOs) by defeated by Tommy Karpency (24-4-1, 14 KOs) via split decision.

Karpency had some good rounds but didn’t do much late. Dawson entered the bout as a 25:1 betting favorite. photos
