Finally – Cub Swanson arrives

Despite what some people may tell you, adversity isn’t losing a fight. That’s just a notch on your record, an experience you should use to fuel you and help you get better. To many, losing is a gift. But adversity, that’s a different animal altogether. Adversity is getting your head split open in a fight, literally having your face broken in training, and watching your prime years slip away as you try to get healthy enough to compete . . .

TUF episode 2 recap

The Ultimate Fighter® Fridays episode two – “What We Do” – aired on FX on Friday evening and saw Team Carwin win the inaugural fight of the competition, as Neil Magny claimed a unanimous decision victory over Las Vegas native Cameron Diffley.

Magny said: “Winning was a big relief. To be able to get that first fight out of the way and enjoy the house felt good. The pressure was off and I actually got a good night’s sleep. I think the fight went well. I did a good job keeping the fight standing. I didn’t allow him to work his game and it worked out pretty good for me.” (more…)

WBC purse bid for Arreola-Stiverne moved

By Boxing Bob Newman

WBC Executive Secretary Mauricio Sulaiman has just informed Fightnews.com that the purse bids for the WBC Heavyweight mandatory eliminator between Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne, originally to be held tomorrow, has been postponed. They will now be held at next Saturday, September 29th in Las Vegas at the Bellagio Hotel, 11:00 a.m. PST. “The Nightmare” Arreola, 35-2, 30 KOs, will meet “B.Ware” Stiverne, 22-1, 20 KOs, to determine the mandatory challenger to long time WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. Arreola’s first loss was an unsuccessful title challenge of Klitschko back in 2009 via TKO10, three years to the day of the purse bids, September 29th. Since losing two fights later via MD12 to Tomasz Adamek, Arreola has rattled off seven straight wins, six by KO. Stiverne’s only blemish was a shock TKO4 loss to journeyman Demetrice King back in 2007. He has gone undefeated since, posting a 10-0-1, 8 KOs mark.

The purse bids will precede the star-studded gala event later that evening at the Bellagio- the WBC-Hublot Watch fund raising dinner and auction. Funds raised will go toward a retirement fund for destitute former champions and boxers throughout the world.

In an IBF junior middleweight eliminator, #3 rated Gabriel Rosado (21-5, 13 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over 38-year-old #2 Charles Whittaker (36-12-2, 21 KOs) on Friday night at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA. Rosado dropped Whittaker near the end of round five, but Whittaker rocked Rosado with a left hook at the bell. Rosado dropped the super game Whittaker again in the seventh and twice in the tenth prompting referee Steve Smoger to wave it off. Time was 1:50.

Unbeaten WBC #12 light heavyweight Sergey Kovalev (19-0-1, 17 KOs) destroyed Lionell Thompson (12-2, 8 KOs). Kovalev dropped Thompson twice at the end of round two and immediately finished him in the third. Time was :14. Kovalev was originally slated to face former WBA world champion Gabriel Campillo, who pulled out with a bad back.

Welterweight Antwone Smith (22-4-1, 12 KOs) scored an upset ten round split decision over previously unbeaten hometown favorite Ronald Cruz (17-1, 12 KOs). Scores were 96-94, 96-94, Smith, 96-94 Cruz. The bout was originally a twelve-rounder for the WBC Continental Americas title, but Smith didn’t make weight so it ended up being a ten-round non-title affair.

(Photo courtesy of UFC.com) The Ultimate Fighting Championship® organization returns to Canada tomorrow with a stacked card featuring two world title fights. Minutes ago, the 24 fighters in action of the 12 fight card weighed in at the historic Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto.

Defending UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones scaled 204.6 lbs, while challenger Vitor “the Young Dinosaur” Belfort hit 204.2 lbs in his first fight at the 205lbs weight class since 2007.

The two men who will make history in the first ever UFC flyweight title fight – Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson – scaled 124.4 lbs and 125lbs respectively while in the eagerly awaited middleweight showdown Michael “the Count” Bisping hit 185.6lbs while “All-American” Brian Stann tipped 185.4 lbs.

Wlodarczyk, Palacios make weight

By Przemek Garczarczyk from Wroclaw

WBC cruiserweight champion Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk (46-2, 33 KO) at 199 pounds was surprisingly heavier than #1 WBC challenger Francisco “The Wizard” Palacios (195 pounds) during Fridays weigh-in in “Hala Stulecia” in Wroclaw, Poland. It was the first time for both fighters met because Team Wlodarczyk decided against their fighter’s participation in press conferences in Warsaw and Wroclaw. Some observers were expecting some fireworks from the always flamboyant and expressive Palacios but he was calm and collected. Palacios decided to wear “Grant” punchers gloves and Wlodarczyk opted for more all-around “Everlast” gear. Saturday’s WBC cruiserweight championship will implement the open scoring system with scores being announced after the fourth and eighth round.

Don’t Count Out Vitor Belfort at UFC 152

By Anthony Springer Jr.

As a die-hard MMA fan, life simply didn’t feel right without my regular fix of UFC action. The abrupt cancellation of UFC 151 put a huge gulf in the Zuffa machine’s near non-stop schedule of fights in 2012. But with the dawn of UFC 152, the tragedy of 151 turns into triumph on Saturday.

In the scheduled six round main event of the evening, Terrell Williams (7-0, 6KO) wasted little time in laying the hurt on outgunned challenger, Lawrence Hughes (4-5, 3KO), and stopped him at 1:51 of the very first round. Following a lengthy 15 minute delay to the start of the bout due to Hughes wearing 10 ounce gloves and Williams wearing 8 ounce gloves, Hughes was required to change into 8 ounce gloves while in the ring. When action did finally begin, Terrell Williams acted like he had things to do and people to see and wanted to close the show in a hurry to conclude a marathon like 10 bout card. Williams relied on speed and precision punching to first knock down Hughes and then trap him on the ropes to prompt the referee to stop the bout. (more…)

Gurrola outpoints Lopez

Story and photos by Felipe Leon

Tijuana’s Mayen Promotions has single handedly kept the sport of boxing alive in the talent rich border region with his monthly club show held at the cavernous Las Pulgas Nightclub in the heart of Tijuana’s Avenida Revolucion. While Mexico’s biggest promoter, Zanfer Promotions, as well as Erik Morales’ Box Latino are based in Tijuana, Guillermo Mayen and his Thursday night’s fight card has regularly kept the fire burning in between major shows presented by bigger promoters. This past Thursday was no exception as Mayen featured twelve bouts shock full of local Tijuana talent battling in front of their home crowd. The only outside bout was the main event between Los Mochis, Mexico’s Abner “Gringo” Lopez (9-2, 8KOs) and Jesus “Pantera” Gurrola (16-4-3, 7KOs) of Mexicali, Mexico. In it Gurrola took an unpopular close split decision win over Lopez.

Lopez is known in Tijuana as the executioner of popular local fighters Mario “Popeyin” Padilla and Emilio Bojorquez, both who succumbed to knock out at the fists of Lopez, with Padilla in five rounds in February while Bojorquez in three in April. (more…)

“I hope that this long period without a fight, 10 months, will be the last one without a bout in my career. From now on, after Palacios, I hope to fight more often,” said WBC cruiserweight titleholder Krzysztof “Diablo” Wlodarczyk (46-2, 33 KO) after his first public appearance before his September 22 title defense against Francisco “Wizard” Palacios (21-1, 13 KO) at the “Hala Stulecia” in Wroclaw, Poland.

Palacios hopes that his Polish rival will let his fists fly and give him opening to hit him back with faster punches, but “Diablo” is confident about his chances. “We will see about that” said Wlodarczyk, who decided to skip all press conferences to be in top mental and physical shape against the very confident, #1 WBC ranked Palacios.
