Nietes wins second world title

Former WBO minimumweight champion Donnie Nietes (29-1-3, 16 KOs) won the WBO light flyweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Ramon “Principe” Garcia (16-3-1, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the University of St. La Salle Gymnasium in Bacolod City, Philippines. Nietes was in command early, then withstood a late Garcia surge to prevail by scores of 117-111, 118-110 and 115-113. The bout seemed close and Garcia camp was outraged by the scoring, especially the cards that gave Gracia only two and three rounds, demanding a rematch.

2011 has certainly not been the year of the referee. With Russell Mora turning a blind eye to the low blows Joseph Agbeko received against Abner Mares and Joe Cortez’ inability to control the outcome of Floyd Mayweather’s controversial stoppage of Victor Ortiz, it was only a matter of time before another referee found himself in the midst of controversy. Unfortunately for Jay Nady, he was next in line . . . Click here for more

Adama stops Karmazin in 9

By Bill Hillmann at ringside

Middleweight IBF #7 Osumanu Adama (20-2, 15 KOs) scored the biggest win of his career with a ninth round TKO over former IBF light middleweight champion and IBF #6 Roman “Made In Hell” Karmazin (40-5-2, 26 KOs) in an important IBF world title eliminator on Friday night in front of an enthusiastic crowd at “The Club” in Burbank, Illinios, a suburb of fight-starved Chicago. Adama staggered Karmazin in round five with a left hook and had him reeling around the ring in rounds eight and nine before Karmazin’s corner threw in the towel. Time was :58.

The welterweight co-feature between former WBA world champion “Vicious” Vivian Harris (29-7-1, 19 KOs) and Jermaine “Hawk” White (17-4, 9 KOs) was cancelled due to an issue with White’s bloodwork. (more…)

Ringside by Andreas Hale & Anthony Springer Jr.

In a battle of undefeated lightweights, popular Sharif “The Lion” Bogere (21-0, 13 KOs) scored a spectacular third round knockout to successfully defend his NABO lightweight title against previously unbeaten Francisco Contreras (16-1, 13 KOs) on Friday night at Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel in Las Vegas. A right hand to the jaw followed by a glancing blow off the shoulder laid out Contreras face down for the count at 2:01. Contreras was down for an extended time and was taken from the ring on a stretcher. He appeared conscious.

Undefeated junior middleweight Jermell Charlo (16-0, 7 KOs) showed skills in boxing his way to an eight round unanimous decision over Francisco Santana (12-3-1, 6 KOs). Santana had his best moment in round six, hurting Charlo, but for the most part he was content to plod after Charlo eating a steady diet of leather. Scores were 79-73, 78-74, 79-73.

The hard punching Aussie stepped up a gear in round three and dropped his opponent with a power left hook and later a barrage to the head that had the Thai down again but he survived to hear the bell.

Kaddour Shines in Area Debut

By Lindy Lindell
Photos: Bob Ryder

Sporting a bright baby-face, young beyond his years, Ahmad “Babyface” Kaddour, 29, hammered out a convincing stoppage win over the durable Vance Garvey, when Garvey’s corner tossed in the towel that bespeaks “Uncle”. Kaddour seems to have “grown up” since his spotty televised appearances of several seasons ago when he was much younger (24) and had features that appeared to have never known a razor. Of Lebanese decent by way of Denmark, Kaddour has settled into the Arabic Dearborn community and has been training in Phil Awada’s gym for several months. Awada told me that he has arranged for no fewer than four fights in the area in the next few month, including a shot in the boxing-starved Palace of Auburn Hills in January.

I don’t care that he won his last four fights, because he did not fight me. Full speed ahead, knock Joell out and wait for my second chance to get WBC title. This is that simple,” said Palacios, who is training with his friend and fellow cruiserweight Alfredo Escalera Jr and Mike Marrone, who on November 5 will try to dethrone current WBA champ Guillermo Jones.

Baysangurov new WBO 154 champ

Luis Batista Salas, Chairman of the WBO World Championship Committee, has announced that the WBO super welterweight championship of Serhiy Dzinziruk has been vacated pursuant to WBO Rule 5(c ); and interim titleholder Zaurbek Baysangurov is declared to be the new WBO super welterweight champion. Dzinziruk will be rated as the #2 contender, while #1 contender Lukas Konecny must start negotiations to face new champion Baysangurov and the parties have ten days to negotiate an agreement. If an accord is not reached within that time frame, a purse bid will be ordered. The winner of Baysangurov-Konecny must face Dzinziruk within 120 days.

Dzinziruk had held the belt since 2005, making six defenses. He was stripped for not conducting two mandatory defenses he had agreed to as a condition to be allowed to challenge middleweight titleholder Sergio Martinez in March. He also has not defended his WBO Championship since May 14, 2010, more than 16 months ago. He pulled out of a scheduled fight with Konecny citing an injury.
