Poulard up next for Froch?

By Dave Spencer/Fightnews Canada

After fighting much of his career in the shadows of his more famous brother Jean Pascal, NABA light heavyweight championship Nicholson Poulard may have finally earned the chance at world championship title. Poulard has been offered to face IBF super-middleweight champion Carl Froch for a November date. “We’ve been offered a title fight against Carl Froch,” said promoter Camille Estephan. “We’ll have to see if we can make 168 and whether this is a viable option for us. Poulard who would be trying to avenge the loss of his brother Jean Pascal who lost to Froch for WBC title in 2008. “I will do it but 168 is going to be hard for me,” said Poulard adding “I would like to avenge my brother. I would like the fight, I would like to take his revenge.”

Boxing Result

Poulard has an early night

By Dave Spencer/Fightnews Canada

Nicholson Poulard (19-3 9KO) did what others couldn’t Friday night as the NABA light heavyweight champion turned an early knockdown into an early night against Anton Sjomkin (13-7-1). Poulard knocked Estonian fighter down to end the first round and then finished things at 1:24 of the third where the stand-up European fighter was over-whelmed by a left-right combination and stayed on his knee rubbing his eye as the count reached ten. The three previous fights at this second gala presented by Eye of the Tiger at the Holiday Inn Ballroom in the western suburbs of Montreal also saw early knockdowns but then go the distance in one-sided affairs.

Dirk Dzemski: This is the best Robert Stieglitz we’ll ever see

Photo: Eroll Popova

Next Saturday at the o2 World Berlin, WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz will defend his title against Arthur Abraham. Last night after the final sparring session, trainer Dirk Dzemski offered the following assessment:

“The sparring phase went really well. Robert, as always, is physically fit and mentally very strong. Technically, he is at the highest level of his career. I was particularly impressed how focused he was during the sparring. We will see the best Robert Stieglitz of all time. Arthur is not the most difficult boxing package. While he has his strengths, he can be measured up well. We had plenty of time to prepare for Arthur Abraham and we took it. This fight has been on for a long time. Previously opponents have often pulled out shortly before fights. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen this time.”

Ronda Rousey unscripted

(Photo courtesy of UFC.com) There’s no escaping Ronda Rousey these days. Far and away the most publicized female fighter in mixed martial arts today, the Strikeforce bantamweight champion may also be the best.

Five wins. All by submission via armbar. All coming in the first round. You can’t argue with that kind of success, but it may also be getting lost in the talk of Ronda in ESPN’s “Body Issue,” Ronda trashing Kim Kardashian, and Ronda being on the red carpet. Maybe the only one who hasn’t forgotten what got Rousey to this point is the champion herself. And she is well aware that she will be in for the fight of her young career on Saturday against former champion Sarah Kaufman. So she’s prepared accordingly … Click here for more by Thomas Gerbasi, UFC.com

Dawson whips Tuhumury, calls out Trout

Story and photos by Brett Bonetti

Former two time world title challenger Daniel “The Rock” Dawson (38-3 -1, 25 KOs) was back to his best as he defeated Marco Tuhumury (9-10-1, 2 KO’s) by 5th Round TKO in the Main Event of Western Alliance at the WA Italian Club, North Perth, Australia tonight. Dawson was in control right from the start as he stalked Tuhumury around the ring and continually landed and combination of head and vicious body shots. Tuhumury was never able to get into the fight and didn’t land any significant punches. With a minute remaining in Round 5, Dawson sent Tuhumury to the canvas and it seemed that the fight was over, but Tuhumury barely beat the count and then looked on his way to surviving the round, however Dawson rocked Tuhumury again and sent him down for the second time with under ten seconds remaining as referee Charlie Lucas counted Tuhumury out. Time was 2:58 of Round 5.

Dawson thanked his family and friends and declared he was back to his best after tonight’s performance and said he wants to fight current WBA Light Middleweight Champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout. (more…)

Flores Goes To 10-0 With KO Win

Photos: Roy Englebrecht Promotions

Heavyweight prospect Alexander Flores celebrated his 22nd birthday with an impressive eight round knockout of tough Henry Namauu at Roy Englebrecht’s Fight Club OC show, Thursday night in The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, CA. Before a sold out crowd of 1,348, including Jonathan Banks, Tito Ortiz, and Shane Del Rosario, the two talented heavyweights put on quite a show. Flores who won every round was in complete control throughout the eight round battle, but his power was more devastating and in the fourth Flores sent Namauu to the canvas with a short, hard left, then knocked him down again in the fourth with a vicious left hook, with a wobbly Namauu able to survive the round.

Namauu who was willing to trade with Flores, just could not phase Flores who took some good shots but didn’t even flinch. In the eighth round Flores hurt Namauu with a solid right, and followed that up with a flurry of blows against the ropes that Namauu couldn’t defend against, which prompted referee Tom Taylor to jump in before anymore punishment could be dealt. With the KO win, Flores, the current WBC Heavyweight Youth Champion, goes to 10-0 while Namauu drops to 10-5. The scorecards had it 70-61 and 69-62 twice. (more…)

Q&A: Robert Stieglitz

"I'll use my strengths - the world will see that I'm the better fighter!"

Photo: Eroll Popova

Here is an interview with WBO Super Middleweight Champion Robert Stieglitz in his last days of preparations for his title defense against Arthur Abraham on August 25th at the O2 World in Berlin.

Mr. Stieglitz, is the challenger Arthur Abraham a desired opponent for you?
Arthur Abraham has won the right to challenge me. The WBO appointed him to the mandatory challenger. These are the rules of the association and these I face up.

The name is probably appealing for you, right?
Of course, this is an exciting duel. Arthur has made a reputation in Germany. The boxing fans want those fights and I am glad that I can offer this fight. However, I am the champion, not Arthur.

In the case of your victory, you can give your sporting name more weight?
Sure. Up to now Arthur had had a major media attention. Therefore, this defense is also a chance for me to move more in the focus. I will not want to miss this opportunity. (more…)
