Felix, Najera, Falcao victorious in Glendale, CA

By Rocky Morales at ringside
Photos: Big Joe Miranda

Jose “Josesito” Felix Jr. (27-1, 22KO), coming back from an unsuccessful WBA super featherweight title challenge, rebounded nicely with a dominant 6th round TKO over journeyman Alejandro Rodriguez (21-15, 12KO) on Saturday night at the Glendale Civici Auditorium. Felix Jr. easily outboxed Rodriguez, badly bloodying the nose of Rodriguez in the process. By the sixth round, Rodriguez was a bloody mess and on his way to a wide decision loss or knockout loss when he knelt in his corner in pain while grabbing his hand. Rodriguez was ruled unable to continue due to injury, leading to a TKO victory for Felix Jr. Time of the stoppage was 1:41 of the sixth round of the scheduled 8 round lightweight main event.

Undefeated junior welterweight southpaw, Jose Zepeda (21-0, 18KO) put an awesome display of body punching with a third round knockout over the game Adrian Garza (8-4, 6KO). Zepeda was in control the entire way and dropped Garza early in the third round with a hook to the body and twice more before the referee stopped the bout at 2:22 of the third round.

Undefeated lightweight prospect Ivan “Bam Bam” Najera (14-0, 8 KOs) won a highly competitive split decision over the slick boxing Stan Martyniouk (13-2, 2 KOs). The 21 year old San Antonio, Texas, native, Najera, was the aggressor, throughout, but Martyniouk boxed well the entire way and managed to land a few solid power shots, as well. However, Martyniouk, relying largely on his jab and counter punching, was going to be hard pressed to win while fighting from a defensive position. Judges scored the bout 79-73, 75-77 (in favor of Martyniouk) and 78-74. There were no knockdowns in the bout and neither fighter seemed seriously hurt at any point. (more…)

Glazkov lucky to get past Rossy

IBF #2 undefeated heavyweight contender Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (18-0-1, 11 KOs) was lucky to win a ten round majority decision over Derric Rossy (29-9, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sands Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Rossy mostly outworked Glazkov, but a last round rally salvaged the win. Scores were 95-95, 96-94, and an absurd 98-92.

Little known light heavyweight Vasily Lepikhin (16-0, 9 KOs) took apart world rated Robert Berridge (24-2-1, 20 KOs), scoring a fifth round TKO. Lepikhin knocked down Berridge at the end of round two and twice in round five. Referee Gary Rosato waved it off after Lepikhin continued to deal out punishment. Time was 1:04.

Hot heavyweight prospect Joseph Parker (10-0, 9 KOs) scored a third round KO over Keith Thompson (7-3, 4 KOs). Parker dropped Thompson twice in round three to end it. Time was 2:41. (more…)

Garcia annihilates Salka, Peterson halts Santana, Jacobs KOs Fletcher

By John DiSanto at ringside

In the scheduled 10-round main event, WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, Philadelphia, stopped Rod Salka, Pittsburgh, in round two, after three brutal knockdowns. The fight was a non-title bout. The first knockdown came from a hard right hand. Another right put Salka on the deck for the second time. Finally, a left hook dropped Salka again. Referee Steve Willis stopped the fight at 2:31 of round two. Garcia remained undefeated, 29-0, 17 KOs. Salka lost for the fourth time, 19-4, 3 KOs.

Lamont Peterson, Washington, DC, defended his IBF junior middleweight title with a 10th round TKO of Edgar Santana, New York. Peterson, 33-2-1, 16 KOs, scored well with a blistering body attack throughout the fight and landed chopping power shots all night long. Peterson only used his feet to reposition himself and to take an occasional breather. The rest of the time, he stayed in the pocket and chopped away at his rugged foe. Santana, 29-5, 20 KOs, landed as well, but Peterson outworked him in every round. There were no knockdowns in the fight, but the fifth round could have been scored 10-8, given the amount of punishment Peterson dished out. Finally in round ten, with Peterson landing freely to the head and body, the ringside physician signaled that he wanted the fight to be stopped. So referee Pete Santiago halted it at 2:48 of the tenth.

It was bombs away in the first round of the Daniel Jacobs-Jarrod Fletcher vacant WBA middleweight championship fight. Jacobs, Brooklyn, came out fast and dropped Fletcher with a nasty left hook in round one. After that, it seemed that every punch Jacobs threw hurt the Australian, but somehow he made it to the end of the round. In round two, Jacobs appeared to ease off for some reason, instead of going for the knockout. “When I hurt him in the first round and he didn’t go out, I wanted to pace myself and not get tired,” Jacobs said. Jacobs kept the upper hand as the rounds ticked by, but didn’t come close to putting his opponent down again. However, in round five, just when Fletcher appeared to be getting brave, Jacobs refocused and went for the kill. A hard left hook softened Fletcher before a pair of rights put him down again. Referee Michael Griffin stepped in and stopped the fight at 2:58 of round five. Jacobs improved to 28-1, 25 KOs. Fletcher fell to 18-2, 10 KOs. (more…)

Unbeaten IBF #2 heavyweight Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (17-0-1, 11 KOs) and veteran Derric “El León” Rossy (29-8-0, 14 KOs) met with the press for their final press conference before their fight this Saturday at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA.

Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov
“I would like to thank Main Events, Kathy Duva, Sands and NBCSN for the opportunity to come here and show my skills. I just went through the very good camp with John David Jackson and Derik Santos. I got more experience and I can’t wait to showcase that Saturday night. I wanted to thank Derric Rossy for taking this fight. The strongest man is going to win Saturday night.”
