Photos: Scott J. Raven

WBA “regular” lightweight champion Darleys Perez (33-1, 20 KOs) retained his title with a twelve round draw against Anthony Crolla (29-5-2, 11 KOs) on Saturday at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. It seemed to be going Crolla’s way when Perez was deducted points for low blows by referee Howard Foster in rounds eleven and twelve. However scores were 114-113 Perez, 116-111 Crolla and 113-113.

WBA “regular” super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (31-0-2, 23 KOs) scored an explosive second round TKO over former champion Kiko Martinez (32-6, 24 KOs). Quigg dropped Martinez twice in round two and the bout was waved off.

Arreola, Kassi post fight quotes

Chris Arreola: “It was a good decision. It was just a tough fight. Fred came to fight and he’s a survivor. He held right, he moved right. He came here with a good strategy and he got a draw out of it.

“Personally, I don’t think so (did enough to earn a fight with Deontay Wilder). But I know if I get Deontay I’d be in much better shape and a lot better prepared. Not that I wasn’t prepared for Kassi, but he came here with a good fight and was prepared.”

Fred Kassi: “No, I’m not happy with it (the decision). I feel like I won the fight. I won every round pretty much. I made him miss. I showed today I was the better fighter. I don’t take anything away from Chris, I’ve been a fan of him for many years. I just want to show the world what I can do.”

Quigg Quotes from Manchester, UK

WBA “regular” super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg: “In the first round I tested his power and I knew he would gain a bit of confidence. In the second it set it up for the shot we had been working for. And it was a peach of an uppercut. I looked a bit wild, but kept as calm as possible and finished him. The first round was how we knew it would be. He was very nervous, so he was sharp and on edge, and I had to see what he was doing. But I got my range and we knew he would come out quicker in the second and knew he would walk on to my shot. I was expecting 12 tortuous rounds. This is my life and I was welling up in the ring because hopefully now I will get some credit. This is everything I’ve worked for as a kid.”

Frampton was in control through most the fight and won by scores of 115-109, 116-108, 116-108.

WBC #11 heavyweight Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola (36-4-1, 31 KOs) and “Big” Fred Kassi (18-3-1, 10 KOs) battled to a ten round draw. Scores were 96-94 Arreola and 95-95, 95-95. Arreola was mentioned as a possible world title challenger against WBC champion Deontay Wilder in September.

In a walkout bout, unbearen welterweight Ryan Karl of Houston Texas stopped Rigoberto Flores at 1:58 of the opening round. With the win Karl improves to 8-0, 6 KOs. Flores falls to 7-2, 2 KOs.

In the final walkout bout that took place after the Frampton-Gonzalez fight, undefeated Australian light heavyweight puncher Steve Lovett scored a spectacular 4th round TKO over game Ecuadorian Jinner Guerrero. Guerrero gave as good as he got early in the fight but was worn down by the pressure and strength of Lovett.

With the win Lovett improves to 13-0, 11 KOs while Guerrero slips to 8-5, 6 KOs.

Feigenbutz wins WBA interim belt

Super middleweight Vincent Feigenbutz (20-1, 19 KOs) became the WBA “interim” world champion with a three round annihilation of Mauricio Reynoso (15-2-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night in the Abraham-Stieglitz co-feature at Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle, Germany. 19-year-old Feigenbutz dropped the 38-year-old Reynoso three times en route to joining Andre Ward and Fedor Chudinov as a WBA world champion in the 168b division. While Feigenbutz appears to be a legit talent, it should be noted that Reynoso became rated WBA #8 and qualified for a world title shot with a decision win over a journeyman in a four-rounder in March. He had lost his previous fight in 2012.

Early results from El Paso, Texas

By David Finger at ringside

In the final bout before the CBS televised card, undefeated super featherweight prospect Mario Barrios from San Antonio won an uneventful workmanlike eight round decision over Arturo Esquivel from Alice, Texas. Esquivel lacked the power to seriously hurt Barrios and lacked the will to force the issue. Throwing almost no punches in the first four rounds, Esquivel stalked Barrios who dominated with his reach and speed advantage. Recognizing that the fight was all but out of reach in rounds five and six, Esquivel upped the pressure somewhat and landed a few decent shots, but nothing that seriously threatened Barrios. Barrios responded with stinging counterpunches and by round eight Esquivel was back in his shell. All three judges scored the fight 80-72 for Barrios, who improves to 10-0, 5 KOs. Esquivel falls to 9-2, 2 KOs.

In the third bout of the day debuting super featherweight Josh Taylor from Edinburgh dominated game Georgian Archie Weah before referee Mark Boyd waved the fight off at 1:53 of the second round. Weah came out swinging in the first and was not at all intimidated by the petegrie of the Scotsman. But by the end of the first the visibly winded Weah began to eat hard shots from the young southpaw. A hard right hand dropped Weah in the opening minute of the second and although Weah did get up at 8, the fight was waved off less then thirty seconds later with Weah covering up as Taylor teed off on him. Weah drops to 1-2 with the loss.

In a six round super middleweight bout Augusta Georgia’s Justin DeLoach improved to 11-1, 6 KOs after a lopsided six round decision over Houston’s Rick Graham. Two judges scored the fight 60-54 while judge Raul Valencia gave one round to the Texan. Graham slips to 3-8-2, 1 KO.

In the opening bout of the morning, undefeated middleweight Conrad Cummings from North Ireland scored a dominant TKO over Laredo’s Oscar Riojas in the second round. The bout was waved off at 1:26 of the round. With the win Conrad improves to 7-0, 3 KOs. Riojas slips to 8-2, 3 KOs.

Yang finally threw Cuenca down in round twelve and had a point deducted. Scores were 117-110, 115-110, 116-109.

Chatman defeats Biosse

The most familiar out-of-town face in Rhode Island won for the fourth time at Twin River Casino on Friday as Jersey City, N.J., vet Chris Chatman defeated hometown favorite Vladine Biosse by unanimous decision in the main event of CES Boxing’s “Rhode To Redemption” card. Chatman (13-5-1) won it on the scorecards, 96-93, 95-94, 97-92, despite a disputed knockdown in the opening round in which it appeared Biosse (15-7-2) stepped on Chatman’s foot, causing the southpaw to inadvertently fall to the canvas.

No matter, Chatman shook it off and outworked “Mr. Providence,” frequently pressing Biosse against the ropes as the aggressor throughout most of the fight. Neither fighter grabbed the momentum for too long, each unloading with flurries and stealing various rounds in the closing minutes to swing the pendulum. (more…)

Sweden approves first 12-rounder since 1968

It’s official! Erik Skoglund (22-0, 11 KOs) will defend his IBF Intercontinental Light Heavyweight title against Oleksandr Cherviak (15-4-1, 5 KOs) on September 19 in Nyköping, Sweden. In a landmark moment for Swedish boxing, the country’s Martial Arts Delegation has approved Team Sauerland’s application for the undefeated 24-year-old to box 12 x 3 minute rounds. Skoglund will become the first male boxer to compete in a 12 round title fight on Swedish soil since a ban on professional boxing in 1969.

“This is the happiest day of my life,” said Skoglund on hearing the news. “It means everything to me to bring the sport back to Sweden. Boxing has been forbidden since 1969 and although it came back to some degree in 2006, this is going to be the first twelve-round title fight since 1968. We’re making history now and it feels unbelievable!”

“We’re delighted that the Swedish commission have accepted our application,” said promoter Nisse Sauerland. “This is a historic decision and we’re ecstatic that Erik will be able to showcase his skills in front of his home fans in Nyköping.”

Former Australian champion turned terrorist killed

Although his fellow Australian Khaled Sharrouf was believed to have been killed as well, it was later revealed that Sharrouf was not with Elomar at the time and survived the coalition airstrike. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott later expressed confidence that Elomar was killed before adding that both Elomar and Sharrouf were ‘evil terrorists.’ But final confirmation came earlier this month Elomar’s 14-year-old second wife sent a message to her grandmother in Australia confirming the death of her husband.

James Toney: I’m going to keep going until I feel like stopping

James “Lights Out” Toney (76-9-3, 46 KOs) has fought at the elite level for more than three decades and is a sure first ballot Hall of Famer. However, Toney at 46 continues to fight on. Many have questioned why Toney is still fighting. Toney issued a statement to explain his reasons.

I’ve seen reports as well as comments made by boxing fans & media questioning me on why I continue to box at the age of 46. I still box because it’s what I do best, boxing is in my blood, till this day… as always I will fight any boxer out there at any time and any place. I have had over 90 pro fights in my career and not once have I ever been knocked out nor has anybody beaten my ass, even when I sustained a hairline fracture on my knee or when I had a torn bicep and tricep.

People like to talk sh!t about me but name one fight that you saw me get beat badly… good luck finding that! In my 20s, 30s, and even now in my 40’s it’s never happened! I’m one of the best to ever do it, period! I still have that burning desire to go out there and fight the best of the best. I’m in shape and I’m very determined to show everybody that I’m still one of the best out there. I’ve never ducked, dodged, nor made up excuses, I handled my business.

So unless a fighter out there can knock me out then I don’t want to hear anything from anybody. I do this for me, my family, and my real fans… and until one man can stop me I’m going to keep going until I feel like stopping!

Crawford to appear in Western Nebraska

By Bill Green

The 2014 Fighter of the Year and current WBO super lightweight champion Terence “Bud” Crawford ­is traveling out west. To Western Nebraska that is. Crawford already has an enormous legion of fans in Eastern Nebraska, as evidenced by his back-to-back sellouts of over 12,000 strong at the CenturyLink Center, located in the heart of downtown Omaha, Nebraska. However, Western Nebraska fans have craved for their champion to make an appearance. On July 25, fight fans will get their chance. BG Sports Entertainment and Classic Promotions will be promoting a ­pro boxing card in Gering, Nebraska.

The card will featuring a list of local boxers including former Olympian and undefeated as a pro, Alfredo Martinez (3-­0, 1 KO) of Scottsbluff, Nebraska.

One big reason that helped bring Crawford out west is to showcase his new promotional company called B & B Boxing Promotions. The promotional company consists of Crawford himself and longtime co-­manager and lead trainer Brian “BoMac” McIntyre. The company is already scheduled to host their first show in late August and are quickly signing top prospects out of the Midwest. (more…)
