Ex-champ Hernandez defeats Curry

By Bob Caico at ringside
Photos: Andy Newman

Two-time women’s champion Melissa Hernandez won a unanimous decision in her first fight with Rochester, NY promoter Pretty Girl Promotions on Saturday night. In the eight-round main event at the Main Street Armory, Melissa gave away 5 inches and height and at least that much in reach to Ashleigh Curry of Houston. In the first round Hernandez kept trying to measure the taller opponent and get inside her reach. The exercise continued for the next couple rounds as Hernandez moved forward with her jab and overhand rights as Curry held out her own jab and was content on backing away. The fourth round was Curry’s best as she landed a counter right hand on the charging Hernandez and found some success and confidence to trade with her. The remainder of the fight went about the same as Hernandez kept up the pressure and worked her way inside of Curry’s jab and counter rights landing her best shots over the last two rounds. The judges awarded the aggressive former champ with scores of 77-75 and 78-74 twice to raise her record to 20-6-3 while Curry slides to 6-9-4. (more…)

There’s something to be said for age and experience, but as we look back on Saturday night’s card from the Prudential Center, it’s almost impossible not to recognize the kids who are clearly the next wave of stars in the UFC. Consider today’s four Takeaways: . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Fonfara: He didn’t punch as hard as everybody said he did

“I knew he was a tough fighter, quick and in good shape but when he hit me for the first time in the first round, I knew I was going to win this fight,” said Andrzej “The Polish Prince” Fonfara after his ninth round TKO over former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. “He didn’t punch as hard as everybody said he did. I saw his punches easily coming in. I know I threw more punches. I was a little surprised that he did not come out for the (10th) but he was cut, had been getting beat up and had just got knocked down, so he knew what would happen if he came out. Chavez said before the fight that he didn’t think I could take his body punches. I think I took them pretty good and passed that test. I know there are things I can still work on in training to become a more complete boxer, but tonight was a dream come true. I want a rematch with Adonis Stevenson.”

Said Chavez in the ring afterward and before he was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, “Maybe 170,172 pounds is too big for me, maybe I’ll go back down. I’m not sure what my future holds. It was a very tough fight. But I congratulate Andrzej.”

Fonfara stops Chavez Jr after nine

By Miguel Maravilla and Felipe Leon at ringside

At a nearly filled to the rafters StubHub Center in Carson, CA, former light heavyweight title challenger Andrzej Fonfara (27-3, 16 KOs) shocked the house by first dropping and then forcing an end-nine stoppage of former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (48-2-1, 32 KOs) on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. With the win, Fonfara captures the WBC International light heavyweight title. A reported of crowd of 8636, mostly pro-Chavez Jr fans, were at hand to watch the upset which was also broadcast live on Showtime. The fight marked the first bout Chavez Jr fought under the banner of new advisor Al Haymon.

Chavez Jr had not stepped into a ring in a professional prizefight since March of 2014 when he defeated Brian Vera via a unanimous decision. In his last fight, Fonfara beat Doudou Ngumbu in a ten rounder last November.

Fighting at a catch weight of 172 pounds, Chavez Jr never seemed to be able to deal with the size of Fonfara, the weight or his length, as the man from Poland was able to score an array of straight punches, from jabs to right hands, as Chavez tried to get in the inside but without moving his head. Fonfara throughout the fight scored the more punches but Chavez Jr seemed to score the harder punches early in the fight. (more…)

Matthysse defeats Provodnikov in war

By Tracy Morin at ringside
Photos: Boxing Bob Newman

In front of a sold-out crowd at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York, super lightweights Lucas Matthysse (37-3, 34 KOs) and Ruslan Provodnikov (24-4, 17 KOs) put on a nail-biter of a main event as each doled out–and absorbed–thudding power shots from his opponent, with any shot potentially a fight-changer. After a first round that was dominated by Matthysse, Provodnikov was cut by a head clash over his left eye at the start of the second and Matthysse went on attack, tagging his bloodied opponent with hard rights and left hooks–but the scrappy Provodnikov came back swinging and landed his own left hooks in return, making clear that he wouldn’t go down without a fight.

As the fight wore on, Matthysse was able to capitalize on his advantages–better boxing skills and head movement–while targeting Provodnikov with accurate power punches, including a couldn’t-miss uppercut and near-constant jab thrown with varying amounts of power (but often viciously). After a great start by Matthysse, Provodnikov had a solid round four and found his best success by applying constant pressure. The never-say-die Provodnikov would get dominated for stretches, then barrel back forward with pure will and land his own power shots–especially in rounds eight and nine, when Matthysse’s output slowed. Matthysse was the master of the outside game thanks to his slightly longer reach, and his obvious power would have put most down and out, but the “Siberian Rocky” continued to press forward even with blood streaming from the cut.

Provodnikov seemed to sense greater urgency in the championship rounds and even rocked Matthysse in the eleventh, but Matthysse stood up to the punches and wisely boxed without trading in the twelfth. Compubox reported that Matthysse threw more than 1,000 punches, including 625 jabs, and landed 47% his of power shots, and Provodnikov’s battered face told the story. In a fight many didn’t expect to go the distance, the judges’ razor-thin scorecards would be another nail-biter as scores of 114-114, and 115-113 (twice) were announced. Matthysse received the majority decision nod, and Provodnikov earned the respect of everyone watching for his indomitable spirit. Rematch, anyone?

However, Matthysse has his eye on a bigger prize. “I feel very happy with this win tonight,” he said. “Ruslan’s a tough guy, and he took everything I threw at him. I have a lot of respect for him. I’m ready for the next big fight. I’d like to take on the winner of Mayweather-Pacquiao.” photos

Crawford explodes on Dulorme, wins by KO6

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside
Photos: Mikey Williams/Top Rank

On a stormy night in N. Texas, 2014 Fighter of the Year Terence “Bud” Crawford (26-0, 18 KOs) brought the thunder in the ring and scored an explosive sixth round KO over #2 WBO jr welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (22-2, 12 KOs) on Saturday night to claim the vacant WBO jr welterweight title on Saturday night at the College Park Center on the campus of the University of Texas, in Arlington. After five cautious rounds, Crawford dropped Dulorme with a huge right hand in round six, floored him again with his follow up barrage, then finished him with a final brutal series of punches resulting in a third knockdown as referee Rafael Ramos waived it off without a count. The official time of the knockout was 1:51.

Crawford came back to Texas for the 2nd time in the last two years, but this time at 140lbs for the vacant junior welterweight crown, after fighting twice in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska most recently. He may have proved to the world that he may indeed be boxing’s next superstar as his promoter Bob Arum stated at the press conference leading up to the fight. It was not surprising that Crawford won this fight, as he was expected to do, but it was the way he won by completely destroying Dulorme that made you take notice.

Crawford’s Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum definitely took notice and told him so in the ring after the fight.

“This is why you are the Fighter of the Year!!”

Crawford also showed the other 140lbers out there that he’s a force at that weight.

“I feel very strong at this weight,” Crawford stated afterward. “I really worked hard in camp. In the ring I worked on my timing of Dulorme and when I got a big shot on him he was hurt bad. That’s when I really jumped on him. Dulorme was tough but Gamboa was really tough the night we fought. Tonight I got a good rhythm going and got a world title – what a night.” (more…)

Chavez-Fonfara Early Results from StubHub Center

By Miguel Maravilla and Felipe Leon at ringside

With an impressive ten round performance, undefeated Amir Imam (17-0, 14KO) of Davie, Florida, retained his WBC Continental Americas with a wide margin unanimous decision over Managua, Nicaragua’s Walter Castillo (25-3, 18KO). Imam put together a masterful boxing display featured quickness, defense and ring generalship as he scored an array of punches on Castillo through out the ten round light welterweight contest. Imam’s right hand was almost unstoppable. It came after a double jab or as a short counter punch with his back against the ropes. Castillo was relentless as he came forward, taking punches to get close enough to score his power punches to the body of Imam hoping to slow down the lateral movement of the Don King fighter. Imam never slowed down though as halfway in the fight Imam began to become the aggressor as he put together 3-4 punch combos as Castillo backed up.

Castillo never relented and always looked for the fight but a cut over his right eye became a factor and gave Imam a target for that unstoppable right eye. Imam looked for the finish in the tenth and last round, scoring jabs, rights and uppercuts as Castillo backed into the ropes but the tough Central American was able to survive until the final bell. After the ten rounds, the judges scorecards were much to wide to reflect what transpired in the ring. The crowd expressed their feelings with their booing as the scorecards were read. Max DeLuca had it 99-91 while Jack Reiss saw it a shut out with 10-90 as Eddie Hernandez had it the closest with 98-92 for the winner Imam.

“I thought I won, I didn’t get any credit for my punches,” Castillo said second after the fight. “The judge that scored it 100-90 proved that there was no chance I could win here.” (more…)

Matthysse-Provodnikov undercard results from the Turning Stone Resort

By Tracy Morin at ringside

Fans expecting a main event firefight ending in an early knockout got that very outcome in the fight preceding it–a brief but action-packed four minutes between southpaw Patrick Teixeira (25-0, 20 KOs) and Patrick Allotey (30-2, 24 KOs). Fan-friendly from the opening bell, the two skilled boxers targeted body and head with a constant stream of blows in the first, then picked up in the second round right where they left off. But when Teixeira found a slight advantage with Allotey’s back pressed to the ropes, he fired off a stream of punches, punctuated by a right hand body shot that sent Allotey retreating to his own corner, then taking a knee. He did not beat the count, giving the still-undefeated Teixeira his 25th win at 2:04 of Round 2. “I’m very happy and excited, and I feel very emotional about winning my first fight with Golden Boy,” said Teixeira. “I was ready to go the full 10 rounds, but I’m glad we got the knockout. I want to get more fights to season myself and very soon fight for the world title.” (more…)

Oquendo’s lawyer seeks contempt citation against Chagaev’s promoter

Ruslan Chagaev’s promoter, Terek Box Event and its principal Timur Dugazaev issued a statement yesterday in which Dugazaev said that “there will be no rematch between Chagaev and [Fres] Oquendo” and that “actually, I sue [Oquendo] in Moscow for returning the purse as stated in the contract.”

In response, Fres Oquendo’s lawyer, Judd Burstein, has requested a conference with U.S. District Court Judge Ronnie Abrams for permission to make a motion to have the Court appoint a private prosecutor to go after Terek and Dugazaev for criminal contempt — which can lead to six months in jail – due to their “openly and contemptuously flouting [the Court’s] preliminary injunction.”

Burstein is also seeking a temporary restraining order barring Terek “from commencing or continuing a litigation in Moscow that, in essence, asks a Russian Court to invalidate the preliminary injunction that the Court has issued.” (more…)

Undefeated junior middleweight Tony Harrison rolled to his 21st straight victory in tonight’s ESPN Friday Night Fights main event, presented by DiBella Entertainment in association with New Legend Boxing, at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Harrison (21-0, 18 KOs), fighting out of Detroit, dropped Pablo Munguia (20-7, 11 KOs) at the end of the second round with a powerful punch. Munguia was examined between rounds by the ring doctor. Referee Arthur Mercante needed only 11 seconds into the next round to determine that the Mexican was unable to be competitive, awarding Harrison a victory by technical knockout.

“I’m looking for whoever Al Haymon puts me in with,” 24-year-old Harrison remarked. “I’m from Detroit. I’ve never said ‘no’ to an opponent I was offered, which says a lot about me. We have a lot of heart in Detroit. I’m ready for a big fight. I got him with a step-back overhand right. I wish they had let it go a little longer.
