Tank: Wlad ready to be knocked out

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Heavyweight Sherman “Tank” Williams has been kicked out of the training camp of heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. According to Williams, Klitschko’s trainers had to intervene to prevent the champion from being punished by Williams’ bodywork during sparring. “Every shot I’ve hit him with was clean body shots,” Williams told AAP. “I’ve hit him with vicious liver shots and he’s bawling, claiming he’s getting hit on his nuts. At the moment, I think he’s ready to be beaten. He’s ready to be knocked out. If Alex [Leapai] is prepared physically and he’s mentally and spiritually together, the Aussies can have a new champion come next week.”

In other “Tank” news, Williams has pulled out of his bout with unbeaten New Zealand prospect Joseph Parker (7-0, 6 KOs), which was to be the co-feature on the Klitschko-Leapai undercard this Saturday in Oberhausen, Germany. The Parker camp isn’t happy about the late scratch considering all the trash talking Williams did in the build-up, but they have now lined up Marcelo Nascimento (17-5, 15 KOs) as a replacement.

Kassim Ouma arrested after altercation

By TMZSports.com

Former pro boxing champ Kassim Ouma was arrested for battery in L.A. on Friday — after knocking out a man who was allegedly making gay advances toward him … TMZ Sports has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us … the former IBF junior middleweight champion is telling investigators … he was hanging out in Hollywood early Friday morning when he struck up a conversation with a guy he just met. Ouma says the two went back to the other man’s home for a drink … where the guy allegedly made a pass at the boxer. We’re told … Ouma claims he politely declined multiple advances … but says when he got up to leave, the guy made one final move — and Ouma shoved him away. The altercation then escalated … with Ouma allegedly knocking the guy out cold. Cops were called to the scene — where the victim was treated and transported to a nearby hospital. Ouma was ultimately arrested for felony battery causing great bodily harm.

On Saturday night, power punching Argentinian Lucas Matthysse, 34-3, 32KOs will be in the ring with John Molina, 27-3, 22 KOs in what looks to be an all-out war between two full-fledged KO artists.

The match up will serve as a co-featured bout to the Thurman vs. Diaz WBA Welterweight world championship and will take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Matthysse is the clear cut favorite, but with both fighters in the midst of rejuvenating their careers, you can expect an all-out slug fest. (more…)

Jones-Lebedev rematch promises fireworks

By Karl Freitag

A lot a big names are in televised action this week, but the best fight is likely taking place off U.S. TV on Friday night at the Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye, Moscow, Russia, where WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19 KOs) defends against champion in recess Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31 KOs).

The bout is a rematch of their 2013 Fight of the Year last May, spectacularly won by Jones via brutal 11th round KO. Jones was later stripped of the belt due to an alleged failed drug test and Lebedev was reinstated as champion. Promoter Don King later convinced the WBA to install Jones as champion in recess and here we are. Neither has fought since. If this fight is anything like their first encounter, it will be a war.

Ethnicity is a very important part of the boxing world. Fighters always want to be attached to the country they were born, and the boxing fans want a hero that can represent their country. But when a fighter has double citizenship, when they are born in a country that is not from their original roots, the boxing fans seem a bit confused until things change.

As once happened to the legendary Oscar de la Hoya, Carlos “Famoso” Hernandez (first World Champion representing his father’s country El Salvador] just to name a few, Randy “El Matador” Caballero has been dealing with the same situation, fighting not just for pride but also for country. (more…)

Boozer, who came on (after a fashion, though never dominating or controlling) in round three seemed to turn the tide after a reluctant start, and was awarded a five-round technical decision win when an accidental head butt to Staal’s upper brow called for the stoppage.

R.I.P Rubin “Hurricane” Carter: 1937-2014

By James Slater

Legendary 1960′s middleweight contender Ruben “Hurricane” Carter today passed away at the age of 76. Carter, who was famously and wrongfully imprisoned for a 1966 triple murder, lost his battle with prostate cancer. He was a fine fighter and he scored his biggest win in 1963, when he stopped past and future world champion Emile Griffith in the very first round of a non-title clash.

Carter’s career was suddenly curtailed due to the wrongful imprisonment, a sentence that saw him serve almost twenty years. Becoming a writer whilst in jail fighting for his freedom, Carter penned his autobiography entitled: “The 16th-Round – from number-one contender to number 45472.” (more…)

Hopkins-Shumenov scorecard analysis

By Karl Freitag

While Quillin-Konecny was one-sided, and Porter-Malignaggi was a blowout, the controversial scoring in the Bernard Hopkins vs. Beibut Shumenov light heavyweight unification fight warrants some analysis.

Interestingly, all three judges agreed on nine of the twelve rounds contested. In fact, judges Dave Moretti and Jerry Roth scored all twelve rounds identically. Judge Gustavo Padilla was the “lone wolf” in just three rounds, but that was all it took to sway his card Shumenov’s way.

Shumenov won rounds one and two on all three cards. After four rounds, judges Dave Moretti and Jerry Roth had it even 38-38, while Padilla’s card read 39-37 for Shumenov. Hopkins swept rounds five to eight on Moretti’s and Roth’s cards, while Padilla split those middle rounds between Hopkins and Shumenov. So after eight rounds Moretti and Roth had Hopkins ahead 78-74, while Padilla had Shumenov ahead 77-75.

All three judges scored the final four rounds identically, giving Shumanov rounds nine and ten, and Hopkins rounds eleven and twelve, with a 10-8 eleventh round for the knockdown. In the end, Moretti and Roth ended with 116-111 tallies for Hopkins, while Padilla was odd man out finishing with a 114-113 score for Shumenov.

After outclassing and schooling Beibut Shumenov to unify the IBF and WBA titles, record setting 49-year-old Bernard Hopkins spoke to Showtime’s Jim Gray in the ring.

On the bizarre split decision: “Listen, when you get into all that about the judges and all that stuff, they go to school. They have commissions to regulate all that. I don’t like to get into all of that. It’s not my job to deal with that. It’s my job to get ready and to unify the championship before 50.”

On his legacy: “I describe my legacy like a Joe Frazier. We get knocked down but we get back up. I’ll let the historians analyze and debate over the years as I grow a deeper gray beard watching soap operas. I’ll let them break down my legacy.”

On his future: “We are with SHOWTIME until I end my career. Stevenson, I am coming to Canada. I am getting my papers together. I want to be the undisputed light heavyweight world champion this year, period.”

49-year-old Hopkins schools Shumenov; Porter destroys Malignaggi

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside
Photos: Tom Casino / Showtime

49-year-old IBF light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KOs) continued to make history by schooling and thoroughly outclassing WBA counterpart Beibut Shumenov (14-2, 9 KOs) to unify the titles on Saturday night in front of 6,823 at the DC Armory in Washington DC. Hopkins’ experience and awkward grabbing style totally befuddled Shumenov, who foolishly didn’t even have a trainer in the corner to advise him on tactics. Hopkins was able to mostly dictate the pace and for the most part easily counter whatever the 19 years younger Shumenov did. Hopkins floored Shumenov with a right hand in round eleven. Scores on two cards were 116-111, 116-111 Hopkins. Judge Gustavo Padilla somehow scored the one-sided route 114-113 for Shumenov!

In the most impressive performance of the night, IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15 KOs) scored a brutal fourth round KO over former champ Paul Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KOs). Porter staggered Malignaggi in round two and dealt serious hurt to the “Magic Man.” Porter continued to punish Paulie in round three. Porter finally dropped Malignaggi in round four and then laid him out with his follow up barrage. Time was 1:14.

In a third world title fight, WBO middleweight champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (31-0, 22 KOs) retained his title with a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Lukas Konecny (50-5, 23 KOs). Quillin was mostly in command, but the uber-tough Konecny showed lots of heart and battled to the end. Scores were 120-108, 119-109, 119-109. photos

Briggs stops Mireles in just 27 seconds

42-year-old former WBO heavyweight champion Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs (53-6, 47 KOs) needed just 27 seconds to dispose of Francisco Mireles (17-9, 5 KOs) on Saturday night at the Black Bear Casino in Carlton, MN. A slapping left hook to the stomach dropped the 286lb Mireles to a knee where he stayed until referee Mark Nelson stopped the bout. This was Briggs’ second win in eight days. “I’m going to Germany tomorrow to chase down Wladimir Klitschko,” he said after the fight.

The fight was delayed from actually starting for 35 minutes after Briggs entered the ring and then broke it! Briggs climbed through the ropes, danced to the opposite side of the ring, bounced off the ropes and snapped a support causing the ropes to sag. Both fighters left the ring so repair work could be done. They then each returned after repairs were made and the nights action continued. Briggs rushed out of his corner at the opening bell and playfully dropped his hands and tapped Mireles with mocking punches. One of the shots glanced off the side of Mireles, putting the Mexican heavyweight down where he decided to stay. Time of the stoppage was :27 into the first round. (more…)
