WBC #13 Kiyota keeps OPBF 168lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Muscular Japanese, WBC#13 super-middle Yuzo Kiyota (23-3-1, 21 KOs), 168, celebrated his twenty-ninth birthday as he impressively kept his OPBF 168-pound belt by dispatching previously unbeaten JBC top contender Hiromitsu Miura (9-1, 4 KOs), 168, at 2:00 of the sixth session on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

Kiyota seemed to forget a nightmare of his first-round stoppage by Jameson Bostic in an ambitious quest for the OPBF light heavy throne a year ago with his fourth stoppage since. Miura, formerly a MMA battler with good physical power, showed an opening attack in the first session, but the more experienced champ defended himself with his tight guard and began to throw stinging lefts to the face of the willing mixer from the second on. After the fourth, the open scoring system indicated the game challenger was leading on points: 39-37 twice and 38-38. Encouraged by the interim score, Miura turned loose with a flurry of punches in round five, when the champ cautiously waited for an opening, which eventually visited in the next frame. (more…)

WBC Asia 126lb titleholder Bualuang Sor Singyu (7-0, 2 KOs) successfully kept his title as he won a unanimous decision over ABCO #13 Selsius Romilus (reportedly 12-4) on Friday at Bangkok-Thonburi University in Bangkok, Thailand. A hot Thai prospect mostly controlled the show, displaying vicious combinations on his Indonesian foe who also showed good counterpunches. From round ten, it seemed Romilus dominated a little when he landed many tough bodyshots which weakened the champion but it was too late for him to grab the victory. Scored 118-110, 118-110, 116-112.

Konecny camp comments on one-sided scoring

The camp of Lukas Konecny is disappointed in the one-sided scoring of Konecny’s seemingly close fight against WBO jr middleweight champion Zaur Baysangurov on sturdy in Kiev. Scores were Matteo Montella 117-111, Lahcen Oumghar 118-110 and Mickey Vann 119-109.

Lukas Konecny: “It was expected to be a hard and difficult fight. Unfortunately, from the first round I had problems with my eyes. Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t look for excuses for a defeat, but this bothered me in my fight plan and I couldn’t properly implement our tactics. It really bothered me! I’m just hugely disappointed. But, no matter the cause of the defeat today our analysis is needed. I’ll go on from here and I will never abandon my dream of winning a world championship.” (more…)

Khan-Molina at the LA Sports Arena

By Miguel Maravilla

Los Angeles has hosted many great fights throughout the years and will continue its tradition of great fights when former world champion Amir “King” Khan (26-3, 18 KOs) takes on the undefeated Carlos Molina (17-0-1, 7 KOs) of Norwalk, California at the legendary Los Angeles Sports Arena. The bout will take place on December 15.

The Los Angeles Sports Arena hosted its first fight card on July 8, 1959, when Joe Becerra of Guadalajara, Mexico knocked out France’s Alphonse Halimi for the world bantamweight title. Sugar Ray Robinson and Gene Fullmer fought to draw in December of 1960. Muhammad Ali and Archie Moore squared off in 1962. Other notable fights at the LA Sports Arena include Bobby Chacon vs. Danny “Little Red” Lopez, Roberto Duran vs. Pipino Cuevas. Roger Mayweather began his stint as the “Mexicutioner” in the 80’s with wins over Mexican’s Mauricio Aceves and Rodolfo Gonzalez at the Sports Arena. The last time boxing took place at the LA Sports Arena was in August of 2008 on the card that Karim Mayfield scored a first round TKO. The last championship fight to take place at the Sports Arena was a slugfest between Mexican sluggers Jose Luis Lopez and Yori Boy Campas as Lopez went on to win a fifth round TKO.

Konecny in gloves scandal ahead of Baysangurov world title fight

Photos: K2 Promotions-Ukraine

Just hours ahead of his WBO Junior Middleweight Championship showdown with defending champion Zaurbek Baysangurov, challenger and WBO “Interim” Junior Middleweight Champion Lukas Konecny was involved in a gloves scandal after the official weigh-in on Friday. With ten-ounce boxing gloves being used for this junior middleweight world title bout, at the official rules meeting the Konecny Team produced a pair of gloves from the Top Ten Company marked “10 OZ”. However Baysangurov’s trainer, Abel Sanchez observed that they looked suspicious and were too small for ten ounces and requested that WBO Supervisor John Duggan weigh the gloves. With the gloves only weighing eight ounces, Supervisor Duggan disqualified their usage in the world title fight. “As the pictures show and the weighing of the gloves confirmed, these were not ten ounce gloves.” said Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions. “In all of the world championship bouts K2 has promoted across the world, we have never come across this situation before.”
