Geale: I’m not ashamed to say I lost to Golovkin

Former two-time middleweight champion Daniel Geale (30-3, 13 KOs) gave it his all in a losing effort against fearsome WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) on Saturday night inside New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden Arena. “I’m not ashamed to say I lost to Golovkin,” said Geale. “He’s one of the best fighters in boxing and certainly the biggest puncher in the sport. I did my best to come out strong but he was the better man tonight. Want to thank my promoters Gary Shaw and Garrie Francisco for everything they’ve done for me and my family. I’m going to take a few weeks off and evaluate my future.”

Promoter Gary Shaw added, “I have nothing but great respect for Daniel Geale who did his best tonight. He fought hard against a great fighter who I believe is a pound for pound champion in Golovkin.”

Japanese lightweight champ Yoshitaka Kato (28-5-1, 9 KOs), 135, impressively kept his national belt as he badly dropped ex-WBC youth champ Tsukasa Saito (19-3, 14 KOs), 135, in the fourth and accelerated his persistent attack to prompt the referee’s intervention at 1:13 of the eighth round in a scheduled ten on Wednesday (July 23) in Tokyo, Japan. Kato, a shaven skulled boxer-puncher, accurately penetrated Saito’s loose guard with a solid left-right combination to hurt him so effectively that the loser absorbed much punishment as the contest progressed. Kato made his seventh successful defense to his credit. (more…)

WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) scored a third round demolition of former world champion Daniel Geale (30-3, 16 KOs) Saturday night before 8,572 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Golovkin dropped Geale in round two with a barrage of punches. The end came in round three when Golovkin dropped Geale again with a huge right hand. Time was 2:47. Making the win all the more impressive is Geale had connected with a hard punch just a fraction of a second before Golovkin’s punch landed and Golovkin’s blow still carried KO power. photos

Local welterweight hero Benavidez (21-0, 15 KOs), fighting for the first time at home since 2011, made quick work of Henry Auraad (16-9-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, Arizona. Benavides dropped Auraad twice in the first round before the bout was halted after 1:50. Benavides won the NABF Youth title.

Two-time Mexican Olympian Oscar Valdez (13-0, 11 KOs) scored a one-sided eight round unanimous decision over veteran Juan Ruiz (23-15, 7 KOs) in a featherweight contest. Valdez pressed the action against Ruiz, doing significant damage to the body en route to a 80-71 shutout on all cards. The survival-minded Ruiz, who was deducted a point in the eighth round, has never been stopped. He dropped his ninth straight fight.

Unbeaten light heavyweight Trevor McCumby (16-0, 12 KOs) was impressive in winning a six round unanimous decision over Michael Gbenga (15-16, 15 KOs). McCumby dropped Gbenga in round five on the way to a 60-53, 60-53, 60-53 sweep on the scorecards. photos

In the co-feature, former world champion Mario “Dragoncito” Rodriguez (18-9-4, 11 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Junior Granados (13-2-1, 8 KOs) in a jr flyweight bout. Scores were 97-93, 97-93, 97-95. photos

Karpency cruises, Bergman upset

Former WBO and IBO world title challenger Tommy Karpency (23-4) captured the NABA-US light heavyweight title over Dahfir Smith (27-24) by a lopsided 10 round unanimous decision. Karpency controlled the pace from the outset both landing at will and often with a sharp jab and combinations. Scores were 100-90 (twice) and 98-92. No knockdowns were recorded.

In a matchup of hard hitting heavies, undefeated Ahkror “Aha” Muralimov (16-0) upset local bigman Jason Bergman (23-11) to win the NABA-US heavyweight title. Bergman cruised in the first stanza, but Muralimov caught Bergman early in the 2nd with a looping left hook knocking Bergman to the canvas. After beating the count, a clearly hurt Bergman was floored again with a right hand and left hook combination which forced referee Rick Steigerwalt to halt the action at 2:38 of the second round.

In a fight between unbeaten heavyweights, Bryant Jennings (19-0, 10 KO’s) won a razor thin split decision against Mike Perez (20-1-1, 12 KOs). Scores read 115-112 and 114-113 for Jennings against a 114-113 tally for Perez. It was a close, tactical fight with Perez doing well early and Jennings doing well late. A final round point deduction from Perez for holding and hitting by referee Harvey Dock was the deciding factor in the fight. Without which the fight would’ve been scored a draw. photos

Afolabi, Harrison, Rodriguez win on MSG undercard

By Matt Richardson at ringside

Cruiserweight Ola Afolabi beat up Anthony Caputo Smith in three rounds. Afolabi (21-3-4, 9 KO’s) hurt Caputo in the second and knocked him down twice in the third. After the second knockdown, referee Steve Smoger took a close look at Caputo Smith in the corner and, on the advice of the ringside physician, elected to call a halt to the carnage. Impressive and exciting win for Afolabi, the former cruiserweight title challenger. Caputo Smith, who was cut over the left eye, is now 15-4 with 10 knockout victories.

Welterweight Dusty Harrison (23-0, 12 KO’s) won a unanimous decision in a dull fight against journeyman Wilfredo Acuna (14-15, 11 KO’s). All three judges submitted identical scores of 80-72. Acuna was hurt in the fourth and fifth rounds but Harrison couldn’t capitalize enough to score a knockout or even a knockdown. Dull fight and an uninspiring performance from the DC-based Harrison.

The first bout of the night on the Golovkin-Geale under card only lasted 43 seconds. That’s due to a left hook to the body of Yankton Southern delivered from unbeaten junior welterweight Julian Rodriguez. The shot was so effective that it left Southern on the canvas for a rare, full 10-count. With the victory, Rodriguez moves his overall ledger to 5-0 with three wins via stoppage. Southern is just 4-6, 4 KOs.

Shindo renounces WBC female 112lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

WBC female flyweight champ Go Shindo (14-2, 9 KOs) renounced her belt just a day before the WBC purse bidding between Shindo and official challenger Arely Mucino of Mexico on Friday. Her manager/promoter Tetsuya Harada of Kuratoki Promotions submitted the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC) a written relinquishment of the championship because of Shindo’s physical and mental unfitness to participate in the mandatory defense. The JBC accordingly announced its receipt of the said renunciation to our mass media, which reported it big here. The vacant WBC belt will be disputed by Arely Mucino and another to be designated by the WBC soon.

Stieglitz stops Khomitsky; Hammer wins WBO female belt by controversial DQ

By Karl Freitag

A pair of strange endings on Saturday’s SES Boxing card at the Anhalt Arena in Dessau, Germany.

In the main event, two-time former world champion Robert Stieglitz (47-4, 27 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over against WBO #9 Sergey “The Ghost” Khomitsky (29-11-2, 12 KOs). It was a bloody affair with Khomitsky suffering a deep gash on the top his head and Stieglitz was cut over the right eye. The bout was stopped at the beginning of round ten when referee Lagosz Zbigniew ruled Khomitsky’s corner was wasting too much time when retaping Khomitsky’s gloves. Stieglitz appeared headed toward a decision win prior to the bizarre stoppage.

A bout for the vacant WBO female jr middleweight title ended in a controversial fifth round disqualification. 37-year-old multi-division former champion Anne Sophie Mathis (27-4, 23 KOs) seemingly knocked out reigning female middleweight champion Christina Hammer (18-0, 8 KOs), but after some confusion it was ruled by referee Manfred Küchler that the KO punch landed behind Hammer’s head and Mathis was disqualified to a chorus of boos. Replays show the punch appeared to be on the ear.

In other action, former light heavyweight world title challenger and WBO #3/WBA #7 rated Robin Krasniqi (42-3, 16 KOs) outscored WBA #8/WBO #15 Oleksandr Cherviak (14-4-1, 4 KOs) by scores of 117-111, 117-111, 118-110.

WBO #8 rated light heavyweight Dominic Boesel (16-0, 5 KOs) outpointed Daniel Regi (22-10, 11 KOs) over twn by scores of 100-87 on all three cards. (more…)

Boxing is often called the theatre of the unexpected. This weekend in general it proved to be true since in southern California major fights went by the wayside days before their scheduled time including the Christopher Martin-Efrain Esquivias fight in Ontario, the Ivan Morales-Sergio Frias in Indio and the semi-main event of Bobby D. Presents’ “San Diego Fights: Border War II” in which current female NABF junior flyweight champion Kenia Enriquez was to participate in. With no time to find a replacement, California Hall of fame promoter Bobby DePhilippis had to settle to present to his audience only four fights. Nobody complained since all four bouts featuring local San Diego and Tijuana talent were full of action as well as a musical performance and interviews conducted by Benny Ricardo during the intermission of the afore mentioned Enriquez, two-time world champ Jolene Blackshear and undefeated interim WBC Latino jr. welterweight champion Emanuel Robles.
