“Detroit Brawl” series launches tonight!

DMITRIY SALITA W SUGAR HILL AT NEW KRONK - NO CREDITABy Jerry Glick

Dmitriy Salita was a fan favorite fighter and a world title challenger who turned promoter and developed a following in New York City with his “Brooklyn Brawl” series. With his reputation as a promoter growing, Salita has branched out to his first solo show outside of the Big Apple.

Working with Motown matchmaker Dennis Turner, Salita has lined up nine exciting bouts for his inaugural “Detroit Brawl” event this Saturday at the Masonic Temple in downtown Detroit. The main event features cruiserweight contender Junior Wright (14-1-1, 11 KOs) against tough journeyman Chris Stallworth (9-3, 3 KOs).

On September 1, 2010, Salita co-promoted his first card with the O’Shea Brothers Boxing promotion at the Oceana Hall in Brooklyn. Salita also boxed in the main event, winning an eight round decision over Franklin Gonzalez. (more…)

Caballero: I want to become a world champion again

A sold-out crowd of 1,814 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino welcomed back hometown hero Randy “El Matador” Caballero (23-0, 14 KOs) of Coachella Valley, Calif. in his first fight since 2014. The former IBF bantamweight champion, who lost his title on the scale last year, scored a seventh round TKO over Ruben Garcia (15-2-1, 6 KOs) of Mexico City in a featherweight clash.

“It feels so great to be back,” said Caballero. “I felt strong and in control the whole time and glad I was able to shake off some of the ring rust. I’m glad I was able to share this victory with my hometown and have them witness my return to the ring. I know I delivered a great fight, and I’m ready for the next challenge. I want to become a world champion again, and I know the opportunity is coming soon.”

Caballero, Gomez victorious at Fantasy Springs

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside
Photos: Tom Hogan – HoganPhotos/Golden Boy

Former IBF bantamweight champion Randy Caballero, (23-0, 14 KOs), made a successful return to his home venue in the main event at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, stopping Ruben Garcia, (15-2-1, 6 KOs), at the end of round seven of a scheduled ten round featherweight bout.

Caballero, who lost his IBF bantamweight title after coming in more than five pounds overweight prior to his scheduled defense against Lee Haskins last November, was in control the entire bout, but Caballero stepped on the gas in round six, when he repeatedly snapped Garcia’s head back with left hooks and right uppercuts. In the next round, Caballero was awarded a knockdown when Garcia went to his knees trying to avoid a Caballero flurry in the corner. However the next knockdown was legitimate, with Caballero landing a left, right hand combination to Garcia’s head. Although he survived the knockdown, between rounds seven and eight Garcia indicated he did not want to continue, prompting the referee’s stoppage.

Fighting for just the second time in 18 months, oft-maligned Frankie “Pit Bull” Gomez continued to work off the ring rust, pummeling journeyman Silverio Ortiz en route to a ten-round unanimous decision in the co-main event in Indio. All three judges scored the bout 100-90, which was fought at welterweight while Gomez works his way back down to the junior welterweight division. Gomez, (20-0, 13 KOs), whose career has repeatedly stalled due to well-chronicled legal issues and difficulties making weight, had little trouble with journeyman Ortiz, (29-17, 15 KOs), who occasionally landed some left hands but otherwise took a frightful beating for ten rounds.

In the evening’s final bout, super middleweight Shane Mosley, Jr., (5-1, 4 KOs), overcame a rocky first round to earn a four-round unanimous decision over Azamat Umarzoda, (2-9-2, 1 KO), by scores of 40-35, 39-36, 39-36. Mosley was wobbled by an Umarzoda left hand in round one, and did not appear to be handling Umarzoda’s punches well early on. However Mosley’s chin appeared to acclimate as the fight progressed, and he dropped Umarzoda with a looping right hook in round three. Both youngsters closed the fight going toe to toe for an entertaining end to the evening.

By Jeff Pamungkas at ringside

WBO Asia Pacific lightweight champion Daud “Cino” Yordan (35-3, 24 Kos) dominated Yushitaka Kato (29-7-1, 9 Kos) of Japan to retain his title on Friday at Balai Sarbini Convention Hall in Jakarta, Indonesia. Although former IBO featherweight and lightweight championYordan was in command from the first round, the durable Kato was not an easy opponent. Kato’s short distance counter punches several times found Yordan’s face. Daud suffered from severe bleeding in round nine due to a headbutt, causing the judges to calculate the scores early. Scores were 88-84, 87-84 and 88-83 all in favor of Yordan. (more…)

Palm Bay excited about return of pro boxing

Local politicians expect Telemundo show to bring economic impact to region

On Friday, February 26th, All Star Boxing will make its return to Palm Bay, Florida. This event, Telemundo’s first boxing telecast of 2016, is headlined by a ten round super flyweight clash between Miguel “No Fear” Cartagena (14-2, 5 KOs) and Ricardo “Meserito” Rodriguez (12-3, 4 KOs) at the Palm Bay Community Center.

A boxing card was pulled out of the city last year and moved to Kissimmee, but it looks like this one will stick. The Cartagena-Rodriguez show will have large shoes to fill, as in retrospect All Star Boxing’s 2012 fight card in this beach town was rather spectacular. Headlining was Olympian featherweight Orlando “El Fenomeno” Cruz, and also featured were current WBA interim heavyweight champion Luis Ortiz, current jr welterweight contender Amir Imam and current unbeaten heavyweight contender Trevor Bryan. Current IBF super flyweight champion McJoe Arroyo was also scheduled, but that bout fell through. (more…)

Fury: Khan can beat Canelo

WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury shocked the world when he defeated longtime champion Wladimir Klitschko last November, and he thinks Amir Khan can do the same when he moves up two weight divisions to challenge WBC middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

“He couldn’t get Mayweather, he couldn’t get Pacquiao so who is the biggest name out there?” Fury told Sky Sports. “It had to be Alvarez or Golovkin – but [Golovkin] is a full-blown middleweight whereas Alvarez is a blown-up welterweight and seems a big puncher, but has hardly knocked anyone out in his last five opponents, has he? Alvarez has got slow feet, so the key to beating him will be speed and Amir Khan’s got that.”

PBC Super Bowl Predictions

Below are Super Bowl 50 predictions from PBC fighters:

Deontay Wilder: I like the Panthers because Cam Newton is just on a different level, a force to be reckoned with.

Amir Khan: I would have to say that the Broncos have the veteran leadership in Peyton Manning and they’ve been there before, so they have the better overall experience. But in the end, the youth and explosiveness of Cam Newton will win the day in what will be a hard-fought Panthers’ victory.

Danny Garcia: I’m going with the Panthers. They’re rolling right now. They’ve got youth and energy, and they’ve got a lot of momentum going into the game. If they just stay focused and don’t party and get caught up [in the hype], they’ll win it. (more…)

Freddie Roach and Teddy Atlas: Point Counterpoint

By Bill Dwyre

The TV images from boxing last Saturday night were of a glassy-eyed Jean Pascal and a worried Freddie Roach.

It was the end of the sixth round of the light heavyweight title fight between Pascal and Sergey Kovalev in Montreal, Pascal’s hometown. They had fought before. Kovalev had destroyed Pascal. Pascal wanted another shot and hired the seven-time trainer of the year to guide him through the firestorm this time.

Now, Roach was doing the only kind of guiding left. No need for instructions about jabbing, nor ducking and countering. In the corner, he was telling Pascal it was over. Roach was doing his best Roberto Duran. No mas, Jean. (more…)

Sad to report the passing of famed trainer Richie Giachetti at age 75 in Lodi, Ohio. Giachetti trained 14 world champions including Larry Holmes, Mike Tyson and Buster Douglas. He also managed Holmes’ Hall of Fame career.
———-
The super bantamweight clash between Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg is so hot they’re selling tickets to the weigh-in (limit six per person).
———-
Not much boxing action this weekend with the Super Bowl stealing the mainstream sports media’s attention.
———-
Congratulations to Fightnews.com® photographer Emily Harney, who had a nice write-up about her boxing photos in the Boston Globe.
———-
While most fighters battle to lose weight, British heavyweight Matt Gordon (2-0) has the opposite problem. He says he smashes down 4,000 calories a day to try to keep his weight up. “I don’t like to give away too much of a weight advantage to my opponents because generally, about 240 or 250 is average for a heavyweight. So I’m not trying to gain weight for the sake of it but, as training goes up, the calories have to go up too…but I don’t get sick of eating. It’s a good thing – I love it!”
