Verdejo struggles to win over Flores

WBO #1 lightweight Felix “El Diamante” Verdejo (21-0, 15 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Oliver Flores (27-4-2, 17 KOs) on Friday night in front of 7,143 boxing fans at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Verdejo, returning to the ring for the first time since a bad motorcycle accident last August, controlled most the fight against the defensive-minded Flores. Flores finally woke up in round eight and started taking it to Verdejo the rest of the way. It was too little, too late for Flores, however, as Verdejo won 99-91, 96-94, 98-92.

Next up for “El Diamante” could be a world title shot against WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan this summer, possibly at Madison Square Garden. Coming off this performance, one must ask if Verdejo is really ready for Flanagan. (more…)

A left hook inside followed by a right uppercut from Franco staggered Pasillas and as he went down, referee Raul Caiz stopped the fight 2:32. (more…)

Ray Robinson destroys Edwin Palacios

Story by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

In the main event at the Sugar House Casino in Philadelphia, left-handed welterweight Ray Robinson, 22-2, 11 KOs, dropped Edwin Palacios, 12-5-1, 8 KOs, in round one, and then finished him with a pair of knockdowns in round two of a scheduled 8-rounder. All three knockdowns came via left hand shots. Palacios could not beat referee Gary Rosado’s count after the final knockdown. The time was 2:39.

In the semi-final bout, bantamweight Christian Carto extended his knockout streak to seven straight (7-0, 7 KOs) with a third round stoppage of Sergio Najera, 12-29-2, 6 KOs. The experienced Mexican gave Carto a test by trying to rough up the local puncher, and even landed a few good shots of his own. However, Carto remained cool, consistently landed a good jab and never stopped drilling Najera with hard right hands. Finally in round three after an extended volley of hard shots by Carto, referee Blair Talmadge stopped the fight. There were no knockdowns. The time was 2:06. (more…)

Green-Mundine Result Under Fire

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

In what was widely considered a controversial verdict, Danny Green took a majority nod over Anthony Mundine on Friday night in Adelaide, Australia. American judges Steve Morrow and Hubert Minn had Green ahead 96-94 and 98-90, while Australian judge Tom Ferrauto saw it 94-94. The Aussie broadcast team was highly critical of the result.

Broadcaster Barry Michael: “I had ‘Choc’ winning quite comfortably, to be honest … I don’t see the decision as correct. I’m sorry.”

Broadcaster Paul Kent: “Anthony Mundine won that fight, let’s be clear about that … Mundine knows he won the fight.”

Social media also erupted with outrage at the result. With the series tied 1-1 and pulling in record crowds, there may be only one way to settle this. Are you ready for Green-Mundine 3?

Duco wins purse bid for Parker-Fury, to take place in New Zealand April 1st

By David Finger

Purse bids for the Joseph Parker-Hughie Fury fight just took place at the Verdanza Hotel in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico today (Friday, February 3rd). Despite rumors that the event might end up in London, it was Parker’s promoter Duco Events that came out on top with a winning bid of $3,000,011.
The Joseph Parker-Hughie Fury fight will take place on April 1st in Auckland, New Zealand.

Parker defeated American Andy Ruiz by majority decision on December 10th in what was one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting events in New Zealand’s history. Parker, who hails from South Auckland, is arguably the most popular athlete in New Zealand’s history and will undoubtedly be coming into the ring with the crowd in his corner. The 25-year old Parker has a record of 22-0, 18 KOs. The 22-year old Hughie Fury has a record of 20-0, 10 KOs and will be fighting for the first time outside of Europe since stopping Canadian David Whittom in Montreal back in 2013.

Ortiz: Wilder is nothing but a paper champion

Responding to WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder’s recent public statements, former WBA Interim Heavyweight Champion Luis Ortiz would like to let him know: “I signed up for the WBC/VADA Clean Boxing Program last September. Stop using that excuse to avoid fighting me!”

The undefeated Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs), of Camaguey, Cuba, now living in Miami, says he has been trying to get Wilder into a boxing ring for quite a while.

“He’s scared!” said Ortiz of Wilder. “The more he can use my failed test against me he will. He and (promoter Lou) DiBella are saying he won’t fight me because of that. That was years ago, and since that unfortunate incident, for which I was punished, I have tested a dozen times clean. Now he’s trying to say I haven’t signed up for VADA Clean Boxing… guess what Wilder? I signed up last September when I was notified that all WBC contenders need to be part of their new Clean Boxing Program. I filled out the paperwork and my trainer submitted it to the WBC. He can stop using that excuse to avoid me. I have nothing to hide and do not have to prove any longer to anyone that I am clean. Wilder is nothing but a paper champion who happened to be at the right place at the right time against the right opponent with, most importantly, the right promoter. That’s all he is.

“…When I look at Deontay Wilder, I see an unsure, scared fighter. He’s crazy with his technique and worried about being hit. When you are that worried about getting hit, when you do get hit, you usually get knocked out.” (more…)

Collazo KOs Vasquez in six

By Tracy Morin at ringside
Photos: Ryan Greene/Premier Boxing Champions

In the main event on Thursday from the Horseshoe in Tunica, Mississippi, southpaw Sammy Vasquez (21-2, 15 KOs) looked to bounce back from his first defeat by facing Luis Collazo, (37-7, 20 KOs), himself coming off a layoff after his loss to Keith Thurman. Vasquez established his jab and lateral movement from round 1, circling Collazo to avoid damage while potshotting from the perimeter. As Collazo barreled ahead in the second, Vasquez’s footwork and angles prevented much success. But when Collazo was able to suck Vasquez into more of a slugfest halfway through the third, a left-right combo as Collazo was pressed against the ropes sent Vasquez to the canvas. He beat the count and returned the favor in the fourth by stunning Collazo early with a left, then pressed the action only for Collazo to return vicious fire with his own combinations; the entire round was a barn burner, with each taking turns teeing off and Collazo smartly picking his power shots while pressed against the ropes. After a tit-for-tat fifth, Collazo unleashed a beast of a right hand (set up by a left hook) that positively crumpled Vasquez. Though a count was administered, Vasquez’s clear nonresponse caused ref Bill Clancy to halt the fight at 1:27 of round 6. (more…)

Arakawa wins vacant WBO ASPAC 135lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

Japanese veteran southpaw Nihito Arakawa (29-6-1, 17 KOs), 134.75, acquired the vacant WBO Asia Pacific (ASPAC) lightweight belt when he withstood the opening attack of Filipino Anthony Sabalde (12-6-1NC), 134.5, took back the initiative and pounded out a unanimous decision (116-112, 115-113 twice) over twelve heats on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. It was Sabalde, also southpaw, that hurt the shaven skulled Japanese with solid rights and lefts to the midsection in the first round. But Arakawa, 35, former Japanese and OPBF 135-pound titlist, patiently threw workmanlike combinations to the younger foe by eleven years, piling up points steadily. The eighth, however, witnessed Sabalde explode a big southpaw left that had Arakawa staggering to the ropes, but the Filipino couldn’t follow it up to finish the affair despite his rival’s rubbery legs. But Arakawa showed a remarkable recovery and had Sabalde on the verge of a knockdown with a fusillade of punches in the tenth and eleventh to confirm his triumph. For Arakawa, it was his fourth coronation. The referee was Takeshi Shimakawa (Japan) and the WBO supervisor was Leon Panoncillo (US).

“It would be a very interesting fight between us,” stated Linares. “We’ll see what happens if he decides to stay at 135 pounds. If he does, we’ll possibly fight this year.”
