World ranked super bantamweight T.J. Doheney, of Portlaois, Ireland but now fighting out of Dorchester, MA, remained unbeaten with a second-round TKO over journeyman Ernesto Guerrero of Sonora, Mexico in the main event of Saturday’s Halloween “Monster Brawl III” at the Memorial Hall in Melrose, MA. Applying the pressure early, Doheney worked a sustained body attack dropping Guerrero in the first round. The controlled aggression of Doheney simply did not allow the Mexican warrior to mount any serious offense. Doheney continued the assault in the second round, until the fight was stopped at 1:47 of the round. Doheney improves to 16-0 with 11 stoppages, while Guerrero drops to 22-20.

Tony Bellew to David Haye: I smashed your nightclub buddy and I will smash you the exact same way

By Karl Freitag

After his KO win over BJ Flores, WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew tripped into former heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion David Haye, who was looking on at ringside.

Tony Bellew: “You see him? He’s been conning the British public since this pathetic comeback of his started. Listen to me right now. Let’s be totally honest. Them two guys you fought, they are working the nightclub doors or they’re putting the bins away. Them two guys you fought were a joke and you’re robbing everybody who pays to come in the arena. Listen, you predicted BJ was gonna beat me. He got smashed! And you’re gonna get smashed too! You remember what happened when I was at amateur and you was fighting for the British title? Me and Pricey spanked you in the gym and the next day you pulled out. And with ten-ounce gloves on, boy I’ll put you and your pathetic haircut to sleep…I smashed your buddy, your playmate, your playboy, your nightclub buddy and I will smash you the exact same way…Brother, I’m the biggest payday you’ve got right now so b*tch, we’d better do this soon!”

David Haye: His performance was first class. He went out there and beat a very good fighter…but he was taking some big shots in the process. His defense looked very leaky. Against me all it would take is one of those shots….if he wants to come up to heavyweight and the demand is there, I personally think it’s an easy night’s work. I think it’s a one or two round job. I’d probably knock him out with jabs to be honest.

Full Report: Brunson and Garcia snooze to draw

101516brunson00t

Story by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com
Photos by Darryl Cobb Jr. / dcobbjr.com

In the main event at the 2300 Arena Friday night, North Philly’s Tyrone Brunson, 23-6-2, 22 KOs, and Vineland’s Ismael Garcia, 10-0-2, 4 KOs, engaged in a disappointing draw over eight rounds. The fight, expected to be a dramatic crossroads clash between two fighters in need of a win, turned out not to be so. Throughout most of the fight, Garcia boxed cautiously, while Brunson passively followed him around the ring and put off his heavy-fisted attack. The result was a dissatisfying snoozer with little action.

Garcia, long and lanky, couldn’t help but use his jab and boxing skills to set the careful pace. However, he never stepped up the action when Brunson showed his distaste for battle on this night. Tyrone’s disconnection was a gift to Garcia, but he failed to accept the gimmie.

Brunson appeared to be in a similar mood as Garcia. Usually a life or death brawler, Brunson brought none of his usual fire. He landed solo rights in round three and five, but they failed to put Garcia in danger. (more…)

OPBF 126lb champ Takenaka defeats #1 Braga

OPBF featherweight champ Ryo Takenaka (15-3-1, 8 KOs), 125.75, retained his regional belt for the second time when he cautiously fought and earned a unanimous decision (118-110 twice, 119-110) over OPBF#1 Randy Braga (19-2-1, 5 KOs), 125.75, Philippines, over twelve hot frames on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. Takenaka was once slated to make this fight in July, but his right hand injury caused a postponement for three months. Takenaka was careful of Braga’s southpaw left hand all the way, and failed to follow up for a stoppage only by keeping his distance. Takenaka was leading on points after the eighth on the open scoring system: 79-74, 78-74 twice. He was in command in the last four sessions to confirm his victory and second defense.

Ex-OPBF champ Akaho barely beats Teshigawara

Former OPBF 115-pound champ, now campaigning in the bantam category, Ryo Akaho (28-2-2, 18 KOs), 119.25, very barely eked out a split verdict (95-94, 97-94, 94-95) over unheralded speedster Hiroaki Teshigawara (12-2-2, 6 KOs), 119.25, over ten hard-fought rounds on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. Engaging in his second comeback fight since his failure to win the vacant WBO bantam belt on a second-round demolition at the hand of Pungluang Sor Singyu in Thailand in August of the previous year, Akaho had a very tough time coping with the upcoming novice handled by ex-world 154-pound champ Koichi Wajima. The taller upright stylist Teshigawara was in command in the first half thanks to his superior hand speed that really befuddled the prefight favorite Akaho. The more experienced Akaho, however, desperately tried to turn the tide from the eighth and was fortunately awarded a split duke despite a penalization due to his repeated low blow in the final session. Teshigawara may be worth watching, though he needs more physical power and stamina.

Jamoye and El Hamwi score upsets in Ghent, Belgium

Underdogs Steve Jamoye and Ahmed El Hamwi capture titles defeating the local favorites Jean Pierre Bauwens and Meriton Karaxha.

Steve Jamoye bounced back from 2 consecutive defeats to win a unanimous decision in a bloody war against local star Jean Pierre Bauwens. It was scored 97-94, 97-93 and a close 96-95.
Jamoye had a flying start having Bauwens against the ropes and under pressure in the opening round. Jamoye continued to have Bauwens at the receiving end for the next couple of rounds. Bauwens was cut from an accidental headbutt in round 5. The tide changed in the 7 when Bauwens almost knocked Jamoye out with a left uppercut. Jamoye managed to survive the scare and moments later had Bauwens in trouble. At the end a splendid 7th round Bauwens caught Jamoye again but too late in the round. Jamoye bounced back to win the 8th but seemingly very tired was in trouble again in round 9. Jamoye won the BeNeLux superlightweight title.

The other upset of the night saw Belgian licensed Frenchman Ahmed El Hamwi dropping Meriton Karaxha in round 9 and decisively outpoint him by scores of 97-92, 96-93 and 98-91 to win the vacant Belgian superlightweight title.

On the undercard Sasha Yengoyan was exposed by experienced Giuseppe Lauri and had to go the full 8 rounds. The at times wild swinging Yengoyan dropped Lauri in round 2 and 7 but could not stop him.

Former WBC International Silver and WBC Francophone champion Islam Teffahi easily outpointed Hussain Ghulian. Amine Boucetta outpointed Tibor Laczo over 4 rounds and the revelation of the night was Denis Rosescu who knocked out Tony Bilic in the 1st.

Tony Bellew: [Flores] is not going to see round two because he will be asleep

Tony Bellew says B.J. Flores is a danger to his WBC World Cruiserweight crown as the challenger is in the last chance saloon – but vowed to KO him in the first defence of his strap at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, live on Sky Sports.

Bellew landed the strap with a brutal KO win in May over Ilunga Makabu at Goodison Park in a fight that he said was his final crack at landing a World crown after two failed attempts at Light-Heavyweight.

Flores’ only two losses have come on points in World title clashes – Danny Green for the IBO crown in November 2010 and Beibut Shumenov for the interim WBA Strap in July 2015. The 37 year old has admitted that defeat would all but spell the end of his ambitions at the elite level, and although Bellew knows that feeling all too well, he’s ready to use his ‘freaky power’ to destroy the dreams of ‘El Peligroso’.

Haye: Put Your Money on Flores to Beat Bellew

Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye has told boxing fans to put their money on 9:1 underdog B.J. Flores to rip Tony Bellew’s WBC World Cruiserweight title from him when they meet at the Echo Arena in Liverpool tomorrow night, live on Sky Sports. Bellew has called for a showdown with Haye. The ‘Hayemaker’ says he’s open to talks if Bellew can beat Flores.

“I don’t think Tony is going to win the fight,” said Haye. “B.J. is a big cruiserweight. Look at them next to each other, there’s not a lot in it at first sight but Tony is tall and skinny whereas B.J. is wide and thick set and can punch. B.J. is very underrated, he hasn’t perhaps performed to the nest of his ability in his big fights but he’s been boxing since his was six, has great amateur pedigree boxing all over the world and I think Tony has underestimated him.

WBC declares war on fake belts

The World Boxing Council has launched a concerted legal plan of action, in order to eradicate the sale of fake memorabilia including unauthorized WBC Championship belts. This is after the WBC detected these products being sold in several places on the Internet, mainly in Pakistan and Thailand.

“The WBC World Championship Belts have never been, nor will ever be for sale!,” said WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman. “They are sacred for us. The belts are icons and the WBC will use all available legal procedures to stop unauthorized sales, including pirated and illegal products.”
