Full Report: Farmer still streaking toward title shot

12316farmer00t

Story by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com
Photos by Darryl Cobb Jr. – dcobbjr.com

In the main event Friday night at South Philly’s 2300 Arena, junior lightweight contender Tevin Farmer, 24-4-1, 5 KOs, scored an effortless 10-round unanimous decision over Dardan Zenunaj, 12-3, 9 KOs, to defend his NABF 130-pound title and kept his career streaking toward a world title fight.

Despite Zenunaj’s toughness and respectable record, Farmer’s task appeared so easy that the “American Idol” eventually introduced his own level of difficulty tests during the ten round chore – letting his opponent flail away at him on the ropes and ducking and dodging his way out of trouble.

Farmer won the first couple of rounds in a breeze and began opening up late in the second. He continued to throw hard leather in the third, but when it appeared that he wasn’t hurting Zenunaj, Farmer settled for piling up points and banking round after round.

To add a little drama, Farmer repeatedly went to the ropes and slipped his opponent’s crude attack. There, trapped with the ropes to his back, Farmer swayed and ducked like a hyper-active Wilfred Benitez. It was a nice display of skills, but really not necessary. It was a bored Farmer putting on a show.

It might have been more constructive for Tevin to stick to his often potent body attack, which over the course of the fight may have worn Dardan down enough to secure the stoppage. However, Farmer is about entertaining fans and doing things his way. (more…)

It was a steady 10 rounds of action, Theophane was able to break Amidu down with consistent jabs and body punches aiming consistently at his target, round after round. Amidu struggled to read Theophane, which ultimately led to Theophane to his 40th win, by way of unanimous decision.

“It feels great to have a career that’s lasted this long, he made it easy to stick to my game plan. I listened to my corner who guided me and kept me on track, I couldn’t be happier with the decision,” said Theophane.

“I knew he was going to be a good opponent, I didn’t perform my best,” says Amidu. “This fight should have been in my favor, but in the end the judges decided the winner.” (more…)

Q&A WBA#14 George Kambosos

WBA#14 lightweight George Kambosos (11-0, 9 KO’s) talked to Fightnews.com about his win over WBA#12 Brendon Ogilivie on Friday and his recent time in the USA working with Justin Fortune and sparring world rated Sergey Lipinets and Andrey Klimoy and offer to work as a Manny Pacquiao sparring partner

Congrats on a great win over Ogilivie. You were supremely confident of victory?
I know my abilities and I know how hard I train. There is no one who trains harder than myself. I live this lifestyle and I take this sport seriously. My hands and combinations were always going to be to fast for Ogilivie. Everything came off the way we said we were going to do it.

Ogilivie was a big step up in class and he had some very good performances in Japan and in Australia?
I knew he had boxed good quality guys but I knew I had good wins also over Robert Toomey and Joebert Reyes.

You had Ogilivie in trouble in round two also round six and round nine.. Did you think you could stop him?
I knew I had him in trouble in those rounds and he was hurt several times during the fight when I connected with clean shots but he is a tough fighter and recovered. Full credit to Brendon. We come through the amateurs together
We boxed three times previously. I defeated him for the Australian Golden Gloves but he defeated me on two other occasions that were close in Australian amateur title bouts in 2009 and 2010.I knew it would be diferent in the pro ranks over twelve rounds. I got him where it counts over twelve rounds. (more…)

Blandamura-Signani, an Italian derby for EBU middleweight belt

By Marco Bratusch

Saturday night in Colleferro (Rome), Italy, OPI Since 82 head Salvatore Cherchi will stage the vacant EBU middleweight title between local boxer Emanuele Blandamura (25-2, 5 KOs) and Matteo Signani (23-4-3, 8 KOs). The clash was supposed to take place earlier this year under another promotional banner but eventually fell apart due to organizational issues. Seizeing the opportunity, Blandamura’s promoter OPI Since 82 has won the European Boxing Union bid offering 49,300 Euros, as Fightnews.com reported.

The Italian rivalry for the EBU belt between the two 37-year-old boxers is expected to be a close but fair affair, as both men are showing full respect of one another outside the ring. At Friday weigh-in Blandamura stopped the scale at Kg.72,300 while Signani weighed Kg.72. The latest Italian fighter to become continental champion in the middleweight division was Cristian Sanavia in 2001, while seeking an Italian rivalry for the EBU’s 160 lbs title we must turn back to 1993 finding the Agostino Cardamone’s third round K.O. victory over Francesco Dell’Aquila.

In the co-main event at Twin River Casino, Toka Kahn-Clary (20-1, 14 KO’s) KO’d Mexican journeyman Mario Macias (28-21, 14 KO’s) at 1:52 in round 2. The card was promoted by Jimmy Burchfield’s CES Boxing in Lincoln, RI. Kahn overwhelmed Macias throughout the short fight with extremely fast hands and footwork. The final blow that made Macias quit was a left power uppercut which resulted in Macias hitting the canvas for the second time. Kahn-Clary is a rising contender in the super featherweight division.

Shelly Vincent (18-1, 1 KO) defeated Marquita Lee (3-2) in a quiet 8 round fight with little action. Vincent is coming off her first loss of her career to New York rival Heather Hardy last year in a bout which was nationally televised from Coney Island. She rebounded, and out punched her opponent who had little ring experience compared to Vincent. Perhaps a rematch with Hardy is in the cards before she retires, but for now she will continue to build her record in New England under the tutelage of Jimmy Burchfield. (more…)

Commey: I clearly won the fight

Top rated contender Richard Commey, (24-2-0, 22 KO’s) of Accra, Ghana, is leaving Moscow and heading home after suffering a hotly contested split decision loss to Russia’s Denis Shafikov, (38-2-1, 20 KO’s) today in their 12-round IBF lightweight world title eliminator. Scores were 116-112 for Commey and 116-112, 115-113 for Shafikov.

“It’s very disappointing, I clearly won the fight, look at how banged up he is,” said the 29-year-Commey. “Round after round it was the same thing, he bulled forward with his head and I slammed him with upper cuts and lead rights, it was like target practice.”

“While it could be made that Shafikov was the aggressor, there was nothing effective about his game plan, whatsoever. Very one dimensional and capable of beating some fighters but he didn’t beat me tonight.” (more…)

Roy Jones Jr. to fight for WBF world title on PPV

David Feldman Promotions will announce that former four-division champ and Boxing Legend Roy Jones, Jr. (64-9, 46 KOs) will square off against former world title challenger Bobby Gunn (21-6-1, 18 KOs) on February 17 for the vacant WBF (World Boxing Foundation) world cruiserweight championship. The fight will be announced at the official press conference on Tuesday at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. Gunn, 0-3 in the boxing ring dating back to a 2009, is best known as a bare-knuckle star.

Roy Jones Jr: “I know Bobby Gunn is coming to bring it. He’s a hard-nose, tough fighter that comes right at you, but I’m going to show him why I’m one of the best that ever did it and he doesn’t belong in the ring with me.”

Bobby Gunn: “It’s an honor to share the ring with a legend like Roy Jones. I’ve been chasing him for a few years now, and on February 17, I will catch him.”

The undercard will feature popular Delawarean Joe Tiberi (13-2, 6KO), Canada’s Henry Stewart (1-0, 1KO), as well as more to be announced. Jones-Gunn will be aired live on PPV. Tickets will range from $75 – $300 and can be purchased by calling (484) 935-3378.
