Douglin faces Mercedes on Saturday in St Maarten

The Caribbean Island paradise of St Maarten will be abuzz when rising middleweight and Nuvo TV’s “Knockout” champion Denis “Mommas Boy” Douglin (17-3, 10 KOs) returns to the L.B. Scott Sports Auditorium in Philipsburg on Saturday night to face hard hitting Eduardo Mercedes (25-11, 21 KOs) in the ten round main event of the card promoted by Bobby Ottley’s B.O.S.E. Promotions. Douglin captured the Nuvo title with a win over the former USBA champion Charles “Killa” Whitaker back in June. The opportunity gave him the chance to get to work with renowned trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. Now he will look to take what he learned from the father of the pound for pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr and show the “new and improved” Denis Douglin against Mercedes. He must be wary though of Mercedes because he packs a lot of power, having won twenty-one of his twenty-five victories by way of knockout.

The eight bout card will also have a long awaited ten round grudge match for the IBO female heavyweight world title bout as New York State heavyweight champion Sonya “The Scholar” Lamonakis (9-1-2, 1 KO) battles it out with five time world champion Carlette “The Truth” Ewell (15-7-1, 9KOs).

Geales’ manager: Golovkin is one of the best middleweights of all time

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBA middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin should be rated up there with greatest 160-pounders ever according to Bill Treacy, the manager of two-time middleweight champion Daniel “Real Deal” Geale. “After watching Golovkin defeat Daniel Geale I rate him up there with the best middleweights of all time,” stated Treacy. “Golovkin’s demeanor, the strength in his body and his punches and his focus show that he is the best middleweight in the world. Only super middleweight Andre Ward would maybe have the skills to defeat Golovkin. The Golovkin camp have said that he can make 154 pounds and if he can maintain power he would be too strong for Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather could not stay away from Golovkin for twelve rounds.”

“Daniel will arrive back in Australia on Tuesday. He will go back into training very soon and there are many options for him including possible fights with WBC champion Miguel Cotto and IBF champion Sam Soliman. The Soliman v Geale is a fight Australian boxing fans “Down Under” would be anxious to see.”

GGG = Golovkin Gores Geale: Full Report/Gallery

Ringside Report by: Matt Richardson Photos by: Emily Harney

Miguel Cotto better watch out! In yet another dominant and impressive performance on Saturday night, WBA/IBO middleweight titleholder Gennady “GGG” Golovkin staked his claim as the top middleweight in the sport with a blowout, third round stoppage victory against former belt-holder Daniel Geale. Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) won the opening round, knocked down Geale on a glancing shot in the second and crushed him with a hard right in the third, prompting referee Mike Ortega to call an ending to the bout at the 2:47 mark. The fight was the main event of a card televised by HBO and hosted at Madison Square Garden.

“I want a unification fight with Miguel (the WBC middleweight champion) and (IBF middleweight titleholder Sam) Soliman to prove I’m the best,” Golovkin stated at the post-fight press conference. “Give me a big fight or big name and I’ll show you my technique.” More

Soliman targets GGG

soliman-kalin300By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

IBF middleweight champion Sam “King” Soliman talked to Fightnews.com to say he was impressed with Gennady “GGG” Golovkin’s three round stoppage of Daniel “Real Deal” Geale on Saturday, but also mentions the WBA champion can still be defeated.

“Golovkin was at his very best on Saturday in Madison Square Garden when he stopped Daniel Geale in three rounds,” said Soliman. “I don’t think Daniel was mentally prepared for the fight. He did not box at the top level or show his normal confidence as he did when he defeated Felix Sturm in Germany. I’m sure Daniel will come back better than before. I’m still confident I can defeat GGG. Boxing is all about styles and I know my style would give him problems. Golovkin’s management would know I have the style to cause a major upset and take ‘GGG’ to school. I have a fight date later this year in the USA but will be free in March or April next year if Gennady wants to get it on. I’m hoping Gennady’s management will take up the challenge.”

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.

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…)
