IBF #11 lightweight Jose Felix Jr (23-0-1, 18 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Gerardo Robles (18-10, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the McAllen Convention Center in McAllen, Texas.

Braehmer defeats Gutknecht in WBO eliminator

In a very good action fight, former WBO light heavyweight world champion and German “100 Year Talent” Juergen Braehmer (39-2, 30 KOs) dethroned European light heavyweight titleholder Eduard “Eddy” Gutknecht (24-2, 9 KOs) by unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Max Schmeling Halle in Berlin, Germany. Gutknecht was very aggressive against the big punching Braehmer, but Braehmer landed the sharper shots. Braehmer cut over the right eye in round four and Gutknecht did well in rounds five and six, but Braehmer was back in command in the seventh. Gutknecht was deducted a point in round nine by referee Terry O’Connor for rough housing tactics, and both fought well down the stretch. Braehmer was clearly playing for another point deduction in the last round but O’Connor didn’t bite. Scores were 114-113, 116-111, 117-110. Fightnews had it 115-112 for Braehmer.

Braehmer, who never lost his world title in the ring, will now challenge for his old belt against reigning WBO champion Nathan Cleverly or Cleverly’s next opponent Robin Krasniqi. (more…)

Former two-division world champion Juan Manuel Lopez weighed in at 128.4 pounds for his fight tonight at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, against Brazilian Adilmar Silva and yesterday formalized his ‘invasion’ into the junior lightweight division which he said was already planning for some time. Juanma has done 165 rounds of sparring and he expects his body will respond at 130 pounds with the same effectiveness as when he dominated at 122 and 126. “I’m going to 130 pounds. I already talked with Orlando Pinero and then after the fight we’ll sit with the company but it’s already a reality. I will stay at 130 pounds. I’m not going to make 126 anymore. I hope my body responds well but we’ll see when the bell rings. I did 165 rounds of sparring, the first time I’ve had so many, and we hope that everything goes well. I am strong and well-fed,” he said. (more…)

Soliman overcomes knockdown to edge Sturm

By Karl Freitag

In an IBF middleweight eliminator, perennial contender Sam Soliman (43-11, 17 KOs) won a controversial unanimous decision over longtime former WBA middleweight champion Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16 KOs) on Friday night at the ISS Dome in Duesseldorf, Germany. Sturm dropped Soliman with huge right hand in round two and had Soliman in big trouble. After a few rounds Soliman recovered upped his work rate, while Sturm continued to land the cleaner punches. Judge Benoit Roussel of Quebec, Canada turned in a ridiculous 116-111 score, while Mickey Vann (England) and Steve Weisfeld (Connecticut) scored it 114-113.

Ring announcer Michael Buffer initially announced the winner as being from Germany before resetting and declaring Soliman the winner. Soliman earned a mandatory shot against reigning IBF titleholder and fellow Aussie Daniel Geale. (more…)
