Lerena and Gorgiladze meet for WBC Youth title

By Ron Jackson

Kevin Lerena has several good reasons to look forward to his fight against Gogita Gorgiladze on Monday night. If the 22-year-old South African beats the globetrotting visitor from Georgia at Emperors Palace he will win the vacant WBC youth cruiserweight title, take a step closer to international recognition and delight his supporters in the Golden Gloves Promotions tournament.

The unbeaten Lerena has won six of his ten professional fights inside the distance but he has to improve on his unconvincing points victory over Marcos Antonio Ahumada in August.

Gorgiladze, on his second visit to the Gauteng venue, will be equally keen to erase memories of his fourth-round stoppage defeat to Ilunga Makabu in a fight for the vacant IBF youth cruiserweight title in February last year. (more…)

Cano, Prieto battle to a draw

Report/photos Boxing Bob Newman

On May 17, 2014, Mexican lightweights Ivan Cano and Javier Prieto battled to a twelve round draw for Prieto’s WBC Silver lightweight title. The bout was so competitive, why not do it again, right? Tonight in the same city of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, the two compatriots went at it again, each hoping to do enough to walk away with the win. But instead of “One and Done,” they made it “Twice is Nice” and battled to a majority draw once again, with Prieto retaining his title and his WBC #4 ranking. (more…)

Browne defeats Las Pinas

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Australian super featherweight Davey “Dynamite” Browne (20-1-1, 6 KOs) scored a shutout twelve round decision over Filipino Rey Las Pinas (19-10-5, 11 KOs) at the Ingleburn RSL, Ingleburn, NSW, Australia on Friday to capture the vacant WBC Eurasia Pacific Boxing Council title. Browne’s timing was off in early rounds but in round four he found the range for solid left hooks and rips to the body of the tough Filipino who at 5’5 was six inches shorter than the 5’11 Browne. At the conclusion the scores were Les Fear 120-108, Ray Wheatley 120-108, Wayne Douglas 120-108. Browne is a former 2006 national champion and in 2009 held the WBC Youth world title.

Carl Froch picks up BBB of C Fighter of The Year award, again

By James Slater

Last night in London at the prestigious British Boxing Board of Control’s annual awards dinner, Nottingham’s Carl Froch won The Fighter of The Year award. This is the third year running “The Cobra” has won the award and the fourth time in total.

Now, having seen off all domestic opposition (James DeGale aside), Froch wants to see out his career in Las Vegas. There is also the possibility Froch, now aged 37, will face Mikkel Kessler in a third bout before he calls time on his great career.

In other awards news: light-heavyweight Sergey Kovalev won The Overseas Fighter of The Year award, while John Murray and Anthony Crolla of Manchester picked up The Sportsmanship award for their thrilling April lightweight showdown.

Payano dethrones longtime bantamweight champ Moreno

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside
Photos: Robert Hughes

In the main event in Mesquite, Texas with Iron Mike in attendance, Juan Carlos Payano (16-0, 8KO) survived a nasty cut over his right eye to take the WBA Super Bantamweight Title from the champion Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno (35-3-1, 12KO) after 6 rounds due to the cut. The cut occurred early in the fight from an accidental headbutt and had to be checked by the doctors in the 2nd round.

Payano came out like a bull from the opening bell and took the fight to Moreno in a very scrappy fight that saw Payano get warned multiple times from the referee for fouls. After the 6th round, the doctors decided the cut got worse and the fight was stopped. At the time of the stoppage, the scores read 59-55 and 58-56 for a unanimous decision for the new champion Payano. (more…)
