Robert Guerrero continued his evolution from featherweight boxer-puncher to welterweight tough guy with a gritty, sometimes dirty, twelve-round unanimous decision victory over former welterweight titlist Andre Berto in the main event Saturday night on HBO World Championship Boxing at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.

All three judges scored the bout 116-110 for Guerrero, who retained both his WBC interim welterweight title and his right to legitimately call out pound-for-pound stalwarts Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. . . . Click here for more

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Three-time former world champion Fernando “Kochulito” Montiel won by unanimous decision ((114-112, 114-113 and 115-112)) against Giovanni “Ruso” Caro on Saturday night at the Joshua Neri Santos Municipal Gym in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Montiel suffered a cut on the right cheek and eyelid and Caro was cut on the bridge of the nose which bled profusely, but the intensity never waned. It was a ceaseless exchange of blows that thrilled the crowd throughout. Montiel retained his WBC USNBCsuper banatamweight WBC USNBC crown.

In other action, lightweight Alejandro Sanabria (34-1-1, 25 KOs) won ten round split decision (96-94, 97-93 and 92-96) over Nery Saguilan (24-3-1, 10 KOs). (more…)

Oliveira stops Hernandez in two

By Robert Coster

“I’m on my way back,” said Brazilian jr Middleweight Michael Oliveira (18-1, 12 KO0s) after stopping Dominican veteran Alex Hernandez in two rounds Saturday night in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It was Oliveira’s first fight since losing (by TKO in 9) to fellow Brazilian and two-division world champion Acelino Freitas. Remembering the Freitas debacle, the 22-year-old Oliveira stated, “It was my night to lose that night against Freitas but the main thing is to correct your mistakes and persevere.” Father Carlos Oliveira, Michael’s manager, had this to add: “The Freitas fight is behind us. Michael will fight next for a regional title against an opponent to be anounced.”

Guerrero wins war against Berto

By Rocco Morales and David Robinett at ringside
Photos: Big Joe Miranda

In a punishing 12 round slugfest, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KO) retained his WBC interim welterweight title over former champion, Andre Berto (28-2, 22KO) with a unanimous decision victory at the Citizens Busines Bank Arena in Ontario, CA. Guerrero had Berto on the deck in each the first and second round but Berto battled back to make a war of it and had landed plenty of damaging punches of his own, primarily the uppercut and a clubbing right hand. In an epic 12th round, the two went toe to toe until Guerrero finally seemed to get the better of Berto and finished the fight strongly with Berto staggered and, with the crowd in a frenzy, the referee was unable to hear the bell and a ringside official had to rush in the ring to stop the fight. All three judges scored the bout 116-110 in favor of Guerrero.

In the co-main event of the evening, a 10 round bout for the vacant NABO junior middleweight belt, Keith Thurman (19-0, 18KO) impressively knocked out former champion, Carlos Quintana at 2:19 of the fourth round. Thurman very nearly was able to close the show in the first round when a vicious left hook to the body dropped Quintana for a nine count. For the remainder of the fight, Thurman was the hunter and Quintana was the prey until late in the second round Thurman badly hurt Quintana who seemed on the verge of a vicioius knockout when he was mercifully saved by the referee from further punishment.

Hatton: It isn’t there any more

"I'm not going to put myself through that torture again."

“I had to find out if I could mix it at world level and I got my answer. I can’t,” said former world champion Ricky Hatton, who announced his retirement after his KO loss to Vyacheslav Senchenko. “I needed one more fight to see if I had still got it – and I haven’t. I couldn’t have done any better. A fighter knows, and I know it isn’t there any more. I’ve got to be a man and say it’s the end of Ricky Hatton!”

Senchenko knocks out Hatton

Former WBA welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko (34-1, 23 KOs) scored a spectacular ninth round knockout over comebacking former two-time world champion and British superstar Ricky Hatton (45-3, 32 KOs) on Saturday night before a throng of frenzied Hatton fans at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England. In his first fight in three-and-a-half years, Hatton brought the fight to Senchenko, who lost his WBA belt to Paulie Malignaggi in his previous bout. The Hitman’s aggressiveness had him ahead on all scorecards, but Senchenko suddenly put Hatton on the deck for the count in round nine with a left hook to the body. Time was 2:52. At the end scores were 78-74, 77-76, 77-76.

In a clash for the vacant WBA interim middleweight belt, unbeaten Martin Murray (25-0-1, 11 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over previously unbeaten but inexperienced Jorge Navarro (12-1, 10 KOs). Martin dropped Navarro at the end of round one. He put him down again in round six. Martin got the stoppage with his followup barrage. Time was 1:40.

In a clash for the vacant WBA interim super bantamweight belt, unbeaten Scott Quigg (25-0-1, 18 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over former Euro champion and world title challenger Rendall Munroe (24-3-1, 10 KOs). Quigg dropped Munroe twice with body shots and the bout was waved off. Time was 2:37. (more…)

Zhong defeats Martinez; makes history

Becomes first world boxing champion from China

Xiong Zhao Zhong (20-4-1, 11 KOs) of China Unanimously decisioned Javier Martinez Resendiz (13-4-2, 6 KOs) of Mexico to win the vacant WBC minimumweight world title. The bout was fought at a very fast pace and very close throughout the first half of the fight. The second half of the fight Zhong turned it on and really was teeing off on Martinez at times and seemed to be in the brink of at least putting him down. Zhong also opened up a cut over the eye of Martinez. Martinez was game until the end and neither fighter was down in the bout. 116-114 116-112, and 119-110 were the official scores. Zhong became China’s first world champion boxer. The bout took place at the Kunming City Stadium in Kunming, China.

Earlier, in a much tougher fight than expected, former world heavyweight title challenger Okello Peter (21-6, 19 KOs) out of Japan by way of Uganda defeated Washington State resident Freddie Miller (3-7-1, 2 KOs) by way of TKO in round four. Both men were down in round three. Peter had Miller hurt badly against the ropes in the fourth round when the referee stepped in and waved the bout off.

The undefeated Liverpool boxer makes the second defense of his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles against Skelton at Aintree Equestrian Centre on November 30th on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com.

Since beating Audley Harrison in 82 seconds last month, Price has been preparing at promoter Frank Maloney’s training camp in the Algarve. Price, 29, said: “I went to Portugal because the fight was so soon after the Audley Harrison bout. I needed a change of scenery because I was going straight back into camp. It has been refreshing and exactly what I needed. I have had some good sparring with Danny Price and John McDermott. I am more or less there and ready to do a number on Skelton. I only had a week off after the last fight so it was a case of maintaining what I had already done in the gym in the weeks previously.” (more…)

Guerrero not Satisfied with Belts; wants Stardom!

By David Robinett

This Saturday WBC interim welterweight champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero faces the toughest assignment of his career as he squares off against former welterweight titlist Andre Berto (28-1, 22 KOs) at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. Guerrero (30-1-1, 18KOs) is fighting at welterweight for just the second time following his successful outing back in July against former WBC Silver welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin.

Guerrero continues to step up his level of competition in hopes of landing a career-defining fight against WBC champ Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“The reason for moving to 147 was to get the big fights,” Guerrero explained to FightNews. “Being the smaller guy we were hoping people would see that and want to take the fight. Besides, at 135 and 140 nobody wanted to fight so why waste my time?” (more…)

Hatton: Ready to fight and live

By Robert Hough

If Ricky Hatton lands punches as often and as intensely as he speaks of being a proud man, he’ll shred everyone at welterweight or close. Hatton (45-2, 32 KOs), who spoke recently with searing candor about horrific times after a second-round knockout loss to Manny Pacquiao in May 2009, returns to the ring Saturday against Vyacheslav Senchenko at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. The 10-round welterweight fight will be broadcast on Showtime.

“I’m a very proud fighter,” said Hatton. I’m a very, very proud man. Getting beaten that way by Manny Pacquiao, it was very, very hard to take.”

Hatton’s life turned to “mush,” he said, and ugliness was clear by November 2010, when he went to Manchester Arena to watch David Haye fight Audley Harrison.

“David Haye walks out and the crowd started roaring. I sat at ringside crying,” said Hatton, who had thrilled crowds in his hometown arena on many a night. “I’m thinking, ‘This used to be me. This should be me,’ but because I was in such a bad state and so depressed, I was making a fool of myself.” (more…)

Saito keeps WBC Youth 135lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Japanese speedster, WBC youth lightweight champ Tsukasa Saito (16-0-1, 11 KOs), 135, easily kept his belt as he sank Thai youngster Eakkhunphol Mor Krungthepthonburi (7-2, 4 KOs), 133, with a vicious body shot for the count at 2:15 of the fifth round in a scheduled ten on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. Saito, 22, had acquired the vacant WBC youth title by stopping Rajakru Sor Rungwatana of Thailand in two quick rounds last August, and thus made his initial defense. Saito is currently ranked #8 by our commission JBC.

We have no idea on how to evaluate or place such a WBC youth championship here in Japan. Young boxers under twenty-three years of age are entitled to fight in a quest for the WBC youth belt, but our promoters had better qualify the contestants in the title bouts not to downgrade the dignity of the WBC youth championship system itself.
