IBF #10 Otake wins vacant OPBF 122lb belt by defeating Filipino Gomera

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

Former world challenger Hidenori Otake (28-2-3, 12 KOs), 121.75, managed to acquire the vacant OPBF super-bantamweight belt as he had a tough time coping with fast and ferocious southpaw Jelbird Gomera (13-3, 5 KOs), 120.75, but floored him in the third round and pounded out a unanimous decision over twelve hard-fought rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. The verdict read: Ferdinando Estrella (Philippines), Yuji Fukuchi (Japan) both 115-112, and Pinit Prayadsab (Thailand) 116-111, all for the shaven skulled Japanese veteran. The referee was Kazunobu Asao (Japan). The WBC/WBA welter boss Keith Thurman was in attendance since he reportedly has a good friend in Tokyo and has often visited here privately. Keith, in all red jacket and pants, displayed fast shadow boxing to the crowd.

Having failed to win the WBA throne from Scott Quigg via nearly lopsided decision (118-110, 119-109 twice) in Liverpool, UK, Otake, ex-Japanese national champ with four successful defenses, scored five victories including three stoppages since. But his last performance, a majority decision over Venezuelan Alexander Espinoza, was a tough and shaky one that Otake took a considerable punishment in earlier rounds and barely fought back to win a verdict.

Mansour defeats Kauffman in war

By John DiSanto at ringside

In the main event at Reading’s Santander Arena, heavyweight Amir Mansour, 23-2-1, 16 KOs, defeated Travis Kauffman, 31-2, 23 KOs, over 12 rounds to win the USBA heavyweight title belt.

Photo: Ryan Greene/Premier Boxing Champions

Kauffman, Reading, PA, started fast and built an early lead, but Mansour, Wilmington, DE, took over in the second half. The bout remained close as both fighters tired, with both landing shots. As the fight wore on, Mansour’s work rate was better, allowing him to close the gap and eventually edge into the lead. The finish was furious, with both boxers apparently aware that every round counted down the stretch. After twelve full rounds, Mansour took the official decision by scores of 117-111, 115-113, and 114-114. The PA state title was also in the line.

Conlan stops Ibarra, wins pro debut

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside

Michael Conlan headlined the annual St. Patrick’s Day bout at the Theater in Madison Square Garden, taking on versatile super bantamweight Tim Ibarra in a bout scheduled for 6 rounds. Conlan, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, had all the pressure from the sold-out 5,102 in attendance to deliver on this special day and took his time to get settled in. The opening round had Conlan struggling to find his jab and reach as he was constantly missing on his hooks however Ibarra had the look of a man who was in over his head and never found himself in the fight.

Conlan with his confidence rising as each round went by, started to let his hands go and closed the distance, leading to a series of devastating power shots to the body and head of Ibarra. Once it became too much, the referee was forced to intervene and put an end to the helpless Ibarra at 0:59 of round 3. Conlan picks up his first win and TKO as a professional boxer and made it seem all too easy in the end, his record now 1-0, 1 KO. Ibarra however moves to 4-5, 1 KO.

Alex Saucedo dazzled and impressed the crowd with a brutal 2nd round stoppage of Johnny Garcia in their scheduled 8 round super lightweight fight. Saucedo dropped Garcia in round 1 before coming in for the close in round 2 and forcing referee Steve Smoger to end the fight early. The official time of the stoppage was 2:42 of round 2. Saucedo remains unbeaten at 24-0, 15 KOs while Johnny Garcia drops to 19-4-4, 11 KOs. (more…)

Abel Sanchez: Maybe “bad” GGG fight vs. Brook brought Jacobs to the table

By Przemek Garczarczyk

As usual, Abel Sanchez, the trainer for Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, was honest and straight forward before GGG’s big unification fight on Saturday at Madison Square Garden (HBO PPV). WBC, WBA (super), IBF middleweight champ Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs) takes on WBA regular champion Danny Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs).

“Gennady always tries to put on a show. For the fans, big drama show. Once he hurt (Kell Brook) in the first round, the threat disappeared for him. It was just another fight, He tried to prolong it as much as possible. He didn’t really fight like the normal Gennady. He made it a street fight – as he said he would, say 2-3 weeks before. Maybe it brought Jacobs to the table, maybe it will bring Saunders or Canelo and Oscar to table!”

Travis Kauffman: “This is a fight that has been building for a while. There will be fireworks in the ring on Friday night. I accepted this fight because of the caliber of fighter that Amir is. Come fight night, it is going to be a war. I made a lot of sacrifices for this fight. We have prepared for the best Mansour to show up in the ring. I can’t fall asleep for five seconds in this fight or else I can get stopped. I think that Amir is one of the most feared and avoided heavyweights in the world.”

Amir Mansour: “I got myself a bottle of anti-aging juice. I’m ready for this fight and excited to give the fans another show. I love boxing. I don’t fight bums. I love to make sparks fly every time I step in there. Everyone knows what they’re going to see on Friday night.
