Nijem aims for finish fights

UFC 137 is LIVE on PPV Oct. 29!

Simply put, it was a rookie mistake. On June 4th in the season 13 final of The Ultimate Fighter, Ramsey Nijem fouled up his UFC debut with a first round TKO loss to Tony Ferguson. Nijem got too excited, said goodbye to his gameplan and just started exchanging punches with Ferguson. Even the best of fighters forget themselves the first time they’re in the Octagon, especially in the main event. But the key to a fighter’s future is to recognize the slip up and learn from it, and Nijem has done just that . . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com

WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (27-1, 18 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten WBO super flyweight king Omar Narvaez (35-1-2, 19 KOs) on Saturday night in the Theater at the newly renovated Madison Square Garden in New York City. Donaire was the aggressor and outworked Narvaez in every round. Narvaez stayed very defensive the entire fight and seemed content to take his first loss. Scores were 120-108 on all three cards.

Unbeaten NABF featherweight champion Miguel Angel “Mikey” Garcia (27-0, 23 KOs) impressively annihilated Juan Carlos Martinez (19-13-1, 7 KOs) in round four. Garcia dropped Martinez with a left hook in round three and floored him twice more in round four before the bout was waved off. Time was 2:40. Garcia, rated WBC #3, WBA #3, WBO #3 and IBF #11, is one of the best finishers in boxing. (more…)

By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Heavyweight Chazz Witherspoon (29-2, 21 KOs) made quick work of 274lb Ty Cobb (14-3, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at Bally’s in Atlantic City. Witherspoon dropped Cobb three times in round two, and finished the job in round three putting Cobb on the deck face down at the 1:07 mark.

Heavyweight Vinny Maddalone (34-7, 25 KOs) needed just 82 seconds to get rid of Mike Sheppard (20-13-1, 9 KOs). Body shots did the damage.

Unbeaten jr welterweight Ray Serrano (17-0, 8 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Angel Rios (9-8, 6 KOs). Scores were 100-90, 99-91, 98-92.

In an upset, welterweight journeyman Doel Carrasquillo (16-18-1, 13 KOs) scored a fifth round KO over former contender Shamone Alvarez (21-5, 12 KOs). Alvarez was down in rounds one and two, and again in round five before the bout was stopped at the 1:16 mark.

Unbeaten light heavyweight Jason Escalera (12-0, 11 KOs) made quick work of Mickey Scarborough (6-4, 6 KOs). Escalara dropped Scarborough twice in round one and finished him :31 into round two.

Huck demolishes Rossi

Britsch tops Lyell, Pulev beats Walker

By Karl Freitag

WBO cruiserweight Marco Huck (34-1, 25 KOs) scored a six round beatdown of Rogelio Rossi (17-3-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Ludwigsburg Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Southpaw Rossi was deducted a point for a low blow in round three. Huck was credited with a knockdown later in the same round. Huck dropped Rossi with a punch after the bell in round four and was deducted two points by referee Paul Thomas. Huck went right after Rossi in the fifth and dropped Rossi again. Rossi was down for the second time in the round from a body shot before the bell. Huck laid him out in the sixth with a huge right hand to end it. No time was given. Rossi was down for an extended time and a stretcher was brought to the ring, but Rossi appeared to be OK.

Unbeaten middleweight Dominik Britsch (26-0, 9 KOs) scored a hard fought twelve round majority decision over scrappy former world title challenger Billy Lyell (24-10, 5 KOs). Lyell was the aggressor and outworked Britsch over much of the fight, but Britsch’s flurries resonated with the judges in a 114-114, 117-111, 116-113 verdict.

Unbeaten heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (14-0, 6 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over game Travis Walker (38-7-1, 30 KOs) in a clash for the vacant IBF International heavyweight title. Pulov built up a lead as Walker slowed down. Walker was unlucky as a punch cut Pulov over the right eye in round seven, but was mistakenly ruled as an unintentional headbutt by referee Allan Huggins. By the eighth Walker seemed completely gassed. Walker had little left in the ninth and was deducted a point for losing his mouthpiece. Walker barely made it back to his corner after round eleven and somehow made it through the twelfth, as well. Scores were 119-109, 118, 109, 117-110.

Former world title challenger Enad Licina (21-3, 11 KOs) outpointed Hari Miles (6-4, 2 KOs) over eight by scores of 78-74, 79-73, 79-76.

Unbeaten middleweight Marcos Nader (13-0, 2 KOs) outpointed Lorenzo Cosseddu (27-7-5, 3 KOs) over eight.

Light heavyweight Robert Woge (6-0, 5 KOs) stopped John Waldron (5-6, 2 KOs) in round two.

Narvaez faces daunting task

By Graham Houston
Photo: Sumio Yamada

It’s good big man against good small man on HBO on Saturday when Nonito Donaire, the fast and powerful Filipino Flash, defends his bantamweight title against Omar Narvaez, the veteran from Argentina who moves up in weight from the 115-pound division. Donaire is, predictably, a massive betting favourite. He is the younger man, taller, bigger, far more explosive — and probably just as quick as Narvaez. Although Narvaez was slightly the heavier man at Friday’s weigh-in, Donaire will pack on pounds after replenishing his system and will probably have a considerable weight advantage by the time the two boxers get into the ring.

At first glance, this looks like a blowout. Donaire was devastating in his knockout wins over Vic Darchinyan, Wladimir Sidorenko and Fernando Montiel. None had previously been stopped, but all found themselves on the canvas and out of the fight against Donaire in bouts that didn’t make it past the fifth round.

Narvaez is tough, smart and skilled, he has excellent punch-anticipation, and he is a southpaw. There is an impressive calmness about Narvaez in the ring. He is very good at making an opponent miss and countering. Capable fighters have been made to look ordinary as the Argentinean maestro has handed out boxing lessons. It is possible that, for defensive cleverness, Narvaez is on a par with his countryman, the “untouchable” 140-pound champion Nicolino Locche. (more…)

Leapai KOs Orlov

Former world heavyweight contender Alex Leapai (24-3-3, 19 KOs) scored a crushing KO of Russian giant Evgeny Orlov (13-9-1, 8 KOs) at 1:48 of round four at the Broncos Leagues club, Red Hill, Queensland, Australia. Orlov, 6’9 and 316 pounds, presented problems in rounds one and two as he used his height and reach effectively and also tied up Leapai when he got in close, but in round three Leapai found the range for his power shots hurting the Russian with head and body shots, and in round four a power right uppercut dropped Erlov cold and referee Tony Kettlewell counted the importation out. Orlov committed several infringements during the contest and in round two was deducted a point for continually pushing Leapai’s head down. (more…)

Rodriguez gets by Rosinsky

By Peter Czymbor at ringside

In his second fight under the guidance of trainer Ronnie Shields, undefeated super middleweight prospect Edwin Rodriguez (20-0, 14 KO’s) won a unanimous decision over the previously undefeated Will Rosinsky (14-1, 8 KO’s) in an all action fight headlining Showtime’s “Shobox” card Friday night at the MGM Grand Foxwoods in Connecticut. Rodriguez was able to impose his size and will on the incredibly tough Rosinsky for most of the fight and ripped combinations to his opponent’s head and body. However, Rosinsky never wilted and had success himself, particularly with his lead left hand which he landed regularly throughout the bout. In the end, all three official ringside judges scored the fight a surprising shutout for Rodriguez 100-90. The general consensus amongst press row was that Rodriguez earned the win, but the scores were too wide.

In the co-feature of Showtime’s “Shobox” card at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut, Brooklyn’s Gabriel Bracero (18-0, 3 KO’s) stayed unbeaten with a 10 round beatdown of intrastate foe Daniel Sostre (11-5-1, 4 KO’s) of Highland, New York. Sostre was game, but Bracero was clearly in another class and won on all three scorecards. Official scores were 100-90 (twice) and 99-91 for Bracero. (more…)
