Brook gets hero’s reception on homecoming

Photo: Lawrence Lustig

Newly crowned IBF World Welterweight champion Kell Brook received a hero’s welcome in his hometown of Sheffield yesterday – and told his adoring fans he cannot wait to put on a show at the Motorpoint Arena in his first defence. Brook took the title from Shawn Porter in California last weekend with a stunning points win on enemy turf, and the unbeaten star is set to defend the belt for the first time in his hometown, with December 6 the likely date.

The 28 year old met the Mayor at the Town Hall before greeting a packed crowd of supporters at The Winter Gardens, and he told them that their support was crucial in driving him to victory in the States.

“It’s been a long road to get to where I am now and my feet haven’t touched the ground yet,” said Brook. “The fans have been amazing all the way throughout my career and it was great to be able to thank them all yesterday. It’s beginning to sink in, all the people that came out to support me yesterday has really brought it home. (more…)

Hallback, Corley win WBF belts in Tampa

On Friday night, at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida, two new WBF titleholders were crowned in the two main bouts on Thunder At The Forum Round 2, presented by Panda 5 Star Promotions.

In the main event, 42-year-old Chevelle “Fist Of Steel” Hallback (30-8-2, 13 KOs) proved that she still has it, winning the vacant WBF Womens Welterweight title in an action-packed and exciting bout against former foe Victoria Cisneros (11-16-2, 4 KOs). Hallback defeated Cisneros by split decision in 2010, but this time she would not leave it to the judges. The end came in round eight when Hallback connected with several overhand rights to hurt Cisneros, who was no longer able to defend herself and was consequently stopped on her feet before another power-punch could do more serious damage. Official time of stoppage was 1:49.

In the second World Boxing Federation title fight on the card, former world champion DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley (44-22-1, 25 KOs) stopped last minute substitute Dedrick Bell (12-2001, 7 KOs) in the second round to win the vacant North America light welterweight crown. Corley was originally scheduled to fight David Rodela, but when Rodela pulled out only a few days before the fight, Bell stepped in on one days notice.

Trout knocked down twice, but gets the win over Dawson

By Felipe Leon at ringside

Former junior middleweight champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (27-2, 14KO) met the canvas twice in the third round but still impressed the judges against the hard hitting Daniel Dawson (40-4-1, 26KO) of Australia earning a decisive unanimous decision with scores of 97-90 three times. Trout of Las Cruces, NM, controlled most of the action with a steady jab and an ever present straight left from his southpaw stance but Dawson was able to counter him twice in the third with hard right hands. Despite the knockdowns Trout got back in it and looked to finish the fading Dawson sending him to the canvas in the eight with a flush straight left. For the last two rounds Trout looked for the knockout but the experienced Dawson was able to survive.

Colombian Erick Bone (15-1, 8KO) earned a unanimous decision over Mahonri Montes (28-4-1, 20KO) of Los Mochis, Mexico, in the junior welterweight division over ten rounds . Bone was quicker and more precise as he landed multi-punch combination on the always charging Montes. The Mexican fighter was the taller fighter but never was able to put that into play as Bone succeeded in getting on the inside and attacked the body as well as the head. Judge Tony Crebs scored it a lopsided 100-90 while Max DeLuca and Fernando Villareal saw it an identical 97-93. (more…)

The late rounds of our fight will be interesting.

“We are both veterans with Taylor at 36 years of age and me at 40 years. Taylor defeated one of my idols in a Bernard Hopkins.

Ivan Redkach now trained by Robert Garcia

Undefeated USBA lightweight champion Ivan “The Terrible” Redkach (17-0, 13 KOs) has changed head trainers, adding former world champion and 2011 Trainer of the Year Robert Garcia to his corner. Rated in the top 10 by three of the four sanctioning bodies – IBF #6, WBC #8 and WBA #10 – Redkach and his manager, Larry Army (Elite Management), felt a world-class trainer was needed on Team Redkach as the Ukrainian fighter closes in on his first world title shot, hopefully, in 2015.

“I have a lot of respect for my former trainer, Mario Morales, but I needed a new trainer to teach me how to win at the championship level,” Redkach said. “I didn’t show any improvement in my last two fights, something I need to do every fight to be a legitimate world title contender. Robert Garcia has proven many times that he is a great trainer, one of the best in boxing. I get great sparring at his gym in Oxnard, which is only a one-hour drive from my home (in Los Angeles). I can’t wait for my next fight to show everybody how much I’ve improved.” (more…)
