The newest member of the Tijuana boxing promotional fraternity, Gonzalez Boxing Promotions, presented their second fight card of the year with an entertaining fight bout fight card that offered something for everybody, from heavyweights to super flyweights and everything in between. The nightclub Hangar 27 was filled almost to capacity to witness the main event between junior welterweights Rafael Cobos (15-4-5, 3KOs) and Adan “Ojitos” Gamboa (2-17, 1KO), both of Tijuana, in a scheduled six rounder.
Cobos proved to be the much quicker and stronger of the two as he took over from the opening bell, putting his head against Gamboa’s chest and hardly moving it for the entire six rounds as he ripped hard power shots to the mid-section of his opponent. Gamboa woke up somewhat in the third and looked to box from the outside scoring long right hands but Cobos quickly got back on the inside and kept working, pushing Gamboa against the ropes. (more…)

The WBO has ordered Gary Russell to face Vasyl Lomachenko for the vacant WBO featherweight title. Promoters, Golden Boy (for Russell) and Top Rank (fro Lomachenko) have 30 days to negotiate. That should be interesting as Top Rank and Golden Boy haven’t been doing business with each other recently.

“Boxeo Telemundo” continues its 25th year on the air tonight when Antonio “El Tostado” Tostado (12-1, 6 KOs) of Jamay, Jalisco, Mexico, takes on Jonathan “Pitbull” Vidal (17-1, 9 KOs) of Bayamon, Puerto Rico in the main event. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds with the WBO Latino bantamweight title at stake. Site of the fight card will be the A La Carte Event Pavilion , Tampa, FL. Tuto Zabala, Jr., All Star Boxing, Inc is presenting the show in association with Shea Bailey Promotions.
Tostado is familiar to the Telemundo audience, having fought recent world title challenger David Carmona dropping a hard fought decision loss. It was the first and only blemish to date on Tostado’s record but Tostado said it was a learning experience and he is ready to move forward. Fightnews caught up with Tostado as he was literally arriving to his hotel from the airport having taken this fight on just a few days notice. (more…)

Former WBO Female Lightweight World Champion Erin McGowan (14-2, 7 KOs) returns to the ring on Saturday night where she will take on former 2 time world title challenger Sriphrae Nongkipahuyuth (12-2-2, 5 KOs) at Western Alliance 12 at the Kingsway Indoor Stadium in Perth Australia. McGowan is very excited about fighting in front of her home fans for the first time since 2010. “It sure has been a tough four years fighting overseas and taking a break” McGowan said. “But I am feeling really mentally and physically focused. My opponent has fought for 2 world titles and she is a good test to see where I’m at after a huge break. It is my mission to bring another world title back to Perth, Sky is the limit.” (more…)

Veteran Irvin Buhlalau will be a tough test for the rising young star Paul Kamanga when the meet over six rounds in a light welterweight bout at the Orlando Communal Hall in Soweto south of Johannesburg on Saturday afternoon. The 20-year-old Kamanga from the Democratic Republic of the Congo who is now based in Johannesburg and trained by former fighter Anton Gilmore made his pro debut on July 9 2012. He has been most impressive in racking up an unbeaten record of nine wins with six coming inside the distance.
Buhlalu, 39, from Durban was an outstanding amateur representing South African at the 1994 Commonwealth Games and 1996 Olympics and as a professional won the South African and All Africa lightweight titles. However, he has only had four fights since August 2009 and in December last year was only a shell of his former self when he was badly beaten and stopped in seven rounds by Thompson Mokwana when challenging the South African lightweight title.
On the undercard Sean Ness meets Vusi Dladla in a welterweight bout scheduled for six rounds. There are also five other bouts on the undercard and the tournament is backed by Golden Gloves Promotions.
