Boxing Result

Garcia tops Rios in Montebello, CA

Story and photos by Francisco Salazar at ringside

Irving Garcia won a one-sided four round unanimous decision over Roberto Rios before an almost sellout crowd at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, CA. Both fighters, who weighed in at 131 pounds the day before, pawed each other with jabs in the opening round, although Garcia attempted to follow up those jabs with right hands to the head. Garcia was able to drop Rios with a overhand right hand to the head in the second round. Rios was going to drop face-first, but held himself up with his gloves. Rios, who was cut over his left eye, tried to back away from an advancing Garcia, who attempted to time Rios with another right hand to the head. There was little action in the third round as Rios mostly moved around the ring. However, Rios was able to land a few punches to Garcia to start the fourth round. However, the rally was short-lived as Garcia landed a hard right hand that almost dropped Rios. Following the punch, Rios went into survival mode, doing as little as he could to engage with Garcia. The plan worked as he was able to make it to the final bell. All three judges, including Fightnews.com, scored the bout 40-35. Garcia, from Oxnard, CA, goes to 8-1, 5 KOs. Rios, from Bell Gardens by way of Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico, drops to 4-1, 3 KOs. (more…)

Dib outpoints Rodriguez

IBF featherweight champion Billy “The Kid” Dib (35-1, 21 KOs) outpointed Juan Antonio Rodriguez (21-3, 19 KOs) in a non-title ten round bout at the Orion Function Center, Campsie, Sydney, NSW, Australia on Friday. The scores were David Grainger 99-92, George Pellis 98-92, John Guachi 97-94. Dib used clever footwork and hand speed to win most of the rounds against the aggressive Mexican who came to fight. Dib suffered a cut over the left eye in round four and the right eye in round ten that were compliments of accidental head clashes. Southpaw Rodriguez displayed a solid chin and also had good power but had trouble on connecting with the elusive IBF champion. Rodriguez previous loss came in 2011 in a WBC Youth title bout when he dropped a decision to Eusebio Osejo. Dib captured the IBF title in 2011 by outscoring Mexican Jorge Lacierva and stopped Alberto Servedei and Eduardo Escobedo in IBF title bouts. (more…)

Khan-Garcia: Tempers flare

By Anthony Springer Jr.
Photos: Mary Ann Owen

If a ring had been set up yesterday in the media room, Amir Khan (26-2) and Danny Garcia (23-0) may not have waited until tomorrow night. The two champions would’ve likely fought during the final press conference promoting the bout. Tempers flared on all sides and the comments were always heated and occasionally comical.

Oscar De La Hoya highlighted the significance of Saturday’s bout taking place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, openly praising both fighters for being willing to fight the best at any time. “This matchup [between Amir Khan and Danny Garcia] is a matchup that we don’t see every day. We have two young champions who are at their peak. When you have two young fighters who are willing to fight anybody, when you are willing to fight the best, which is what boxing is all about.”

Marquez faces an improved Lumacad

By Chito Yu Katangkatang

We all remember Fernando Lumacad as the young lad who was knocked out by Jorge Arce in the third round. Everybody loses at a certain point. And more often than not, a boxer’s loss will only make him better. The loss was definitely a wake up call for the young pug from General Santos City. After two losses in a row against Arce and Juan Montes, Lumacad has showed maturity and has in fact won the WBC Asia Continental Flyweight Title. His most recent notable vitory was a unanimous decision win against Glenn Suminguit in a fight held in Hong Kong.

Now, another big break is given to Lumacad as he faces WBA Flyweight Kingpin Hernan “Tyson” Marquez. Marquez is a strong puncher and has been knocking out opponents left and right. He has recently beaten late replacement Ritchie Mepranum and has knocked out Edrin Dapudong earlier. But all is fair in boxing. We never know what happens inside the ring. (more…)

In his most impressive performance of his young career, welterweight Zachary Wohlman won a one-sided, yet competitive four round decision over Jose Martell at the Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, CA. Wohlman worked behind the jab, countering Martell early in the fight with repeated counter left hooks to the head. Wohlman showed feints and angles that allowed him to land combinations to the head as well. Martell landed the occasional hook or cross, but it was not enough to offset Wohlman’s offense. Martell had his beat round in the third, when he was able to feint Wohlman with a jab, but came forward to land a few right hands. However, Wohlman was able to finish well, outlanding Martell in the final round. All three judges scored the bout in favor of Wohlman, 40-36, 40-36, and 39-37.

Garcia’s chance for stardom comes knocking

Photo: phillyboxinghistory.com

By John Disanto – Philly Boxing History (.com)

A couple of months ago, newly crowned WBC junior lightweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia seemed to be on the same track as many other young champions still getting used to that feel of a world title belt around their waist. After beating Mexican legend Erik Morales by decision in March, Garcia waited to hear who his first title challenger would be. Based on the way things usually work in the sport, most believed Garcia would be pressured by the WBC to next face the undefeated and equally unknown Ajose Olusegun, a 30-0 Nigerian who fights out of the UK. Despite Olusegun’s impressive record, the fight figured to be little more than another sanctioning fee opportunity for the WBC and a first defense payday for Garcia. Just a routine move on the boxing chessboard. However, something happened that made the far from anticipated Garcia vs. Olusegun bout suddenly evaporate. Real opportunity knocked for Garcia.
