Boxing Result

Gonzalez scores spectacular KO over Bryant

By Phil Doherty at ringside
Photos: Angel Rodriguez-Valdes

Undefeated Cuban light heavyweight Yunieski Gonzalez (11-0, 7 KOs) closed the show in spectacular fashion during his scheduled ten-round main event against Rowland Bryant (16-3, 11 KOs) at The Seminole Hard Rock Live. Gonzalez landed a picture-perfect chopping right hand to separate Bryant from his senses in what had been a thrilling back-and-forth display of power punching between both men. Gonzalez drew first blood in the second round with a thudding left hook to open a cut over Bryant’s right eye. Bryant returned the favor in the third with a straight right that left Gonzalez bleeding profusely from his left eye.

Round seven proved to be the round of the night with furious left hooks scoring from Bryant, one of which reverberated throughout the arena. Gonzalez weathered the shots well and mounted a concerted counterattack to close out the round.

No one expected what happened next. (more…)

Yorgey takes split decision over Kennedy

In a fight reduced from eight to six rounds, middleweight Harry Joe Yorgey (26-2-1, 12) won a split decision against Julius Kennedy (7-4-1, 3 KOs) on Friday night at the Valley Forge Convention Center in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Kennedy pressured and battered Yorgey on the ropes early, but Harry Joe came on strong in the last two rounds. Scores were 58-56 Kennedy, 58-56 for Yorgey and an appalling 60-54, also for Yorgey.

Unbeaten lightweight Naim “The Dream” Nelson (10-0, 1 KO) outboxed Georgi Kevlishvili (12-5, 3 KOs) over eight one-sided rounds. Scores were 80-72, 79-73, 80-72.

Muriqi gets past Vazquez

Former light heavyweight contender Elivr “The Kosovo Kid” Muriqi (40-5, 24 KOs) struggled with seemingly overmatched Paul Vasquez (9-3-1, 3 KOs) taking an unpopular majority decision on Friday night at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany, New Jersey. Not an impressive showing for Muriqi, whose last fight was 15 months ago, as he was punished by Vazquez late. Scores were 76-76, 77-75, 77-75.

Heavyweights John Lennox (11-2, 5 KOs) and Patrick “Paddy Boy” Farrell (8-2-1, 4 KOs) traded shots for six good action rounds with Lennox emerging a split decision winner. Scores were 59-55, 58-56 Lennox, 58-56 Farrell.

Stiverne: Arreola fight is personal

“This fight with Arreola became personal for me after the postponement,” says WBC #2 heavyweight Bermane Stiverne, who finally faces #1 Chris Arreola in a WBC eliminator after several delays. “I’ve been going back and forth for so long waiting for this fight to happen that I’m now taking this personally. Time spent with my friends and family has been taken away from me, so it’s good he and I are finally going to get it on in Southern California on April 27.”

Stiverne admits that Arreola is a tough customer, but says he’s noticed something. “I have noticed that all of his opponents seem to fight the same way. They come into the ring with great intentions before falling into his traps. They have a game plan but they seem to forget. They follow the plan for a few rounds and then they let him take over. I will not do that. I’m bringing my ax to the fight and I’m going to chop the tree down.”

Marquez: No fifth fight with Pacquiao

Welterweight superstar Juan Manuel Marquez says he has ruled out a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao. “There’s no reason for a fifth fight against Pacquiao. It was clear (who is the best), the goal we had we’ve already achieved. There is no longer anything pending, it’s all finalized and for it to happen it would have to be the last option,” Marquez said. He named Timothy Bradley and Brandon Rios as possible opponents if he decides not to retire. He also ruled out a move to super welterweight to face Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in September.

Japan Update

Report and Photo by Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten WBC female 105-pound champ Naoko Fujioka (10-0, 6 KOs), 112, impressively disposed of WBC#15 light-fly Maribel Ramirez (8-5-2, 3 KOs), 109.5, at 1:30 of the fourth session of a non-title eight on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. Fujioka, ex-amateur titlist now at 37, had the upper hand on the younger Mexican, whipping her with sharper combinations to drop her with a vicious left hook midway in round four. Fujioka accelerated her attack, floored her to the ropes and then finally halted her with the referee’s intervention. OPBF female lightweight champ Raika Fujin (25-7-1, 10 KOs), 132.25, defeated Mexican Cristina Sanchez (5-4, no KO), 132.5, by a unanimous decision (79-74 twice ad 80-74) over eight. Cristina fought well in the outset, but Raika was in command by a clearer margin down the stretch.

WBA bantam champ Koki Kameda, a Japanese southpaw, was originally slated to defend his belt against #8 Yonfrez Parejo of Venezuela in Osaka on April 7, but Kameda Promotions announced on Tuesday that he would take on #6 Juan Carlos Pajano of Dominican Republic instead because of Parejo’s inconvenience on business. However, it was again reported yesterday (Thursday) that Kameda would face another challenger than Pajano due to his expected visa problem. It is just three weeks away, and who will be the challenger against Koki?

March and April will witness many national title bouts in the Canival of Champions where our champs will be obliged to defend their belts against mandatory challengers. We now realize there are many national titlists in so many categories.

Periban-Miller new main event; no TV for Linares

With the pull-out of Pablo Cesar Cano against Manny Perez (as reported yesterday), Saturday’s new FOX Deportes main event will be a clash for the vacant NABF super middleweight belt between unbeaten Marco Antonio Periban (19-0, 12 KOs) and Samuel Miller (25-6, 22 KOs) at the Grand Oasis Resort in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Strangely, an undercard bout between former two-division world champion Jorge “El Nino De Oro” Linares and Oxnard’s “Dangerous” David Rodela (16-7-3, 7 KOs) didn’t get bumped up to the co-feature, and instead we’ll get a ten-round jr featherweight bout between recent world title challenger Alberto Guevara (16-1, 6 KOs) and late sub Jose Alfredo Tirado (18-10, 11 KOs), who is stepping in to replace Jesus Jimenez after Jimenez was too far off weight.

In other non-televised undercard action, the nephew of former world champion Genaro “Chicanito” Hernandez, Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez (7-0, 5 KOs) faces Aaron Olivares (6-3, 2 KOs), and 2012 United States Olympian Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz Jr. (2-0, 1 KO) will face Alberto Cupido (7-7-2, 6 KO’s) in a six-round junior featherweight match-up.

Salinas back in action

By Robert Coster

Rising Cuban featherweight IBF #10 Yoandris Salinas (20-0-1, 13 KOs) will be stepping into the ring for the first time this year when he meets up with Dominican Luis Hinojosa (22-7, 14 KOs) on March 23rd in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The bout will be the 10 round main event of the night and Salinas is expected to be tested by Hinojosa, a boxer who hasn’t lost a fight in 5 years and is currently on a roll of 21 straight victories.

Yoandris, a former Cuban amateur star, had this to say about his upcoming rival: “I’ve heard that Hinojosa is a tough customer plus he will have the crowd in his corner. No problem–I welcome a good fight and I love to beat a guy in his own backyard.”

On the same card, fellow Cuban Inocente Fiz (15-0, 10 KOs) will cross gloves with veteran Jose Vidal Soto (24-13, 14 KOs) in the Jr middleweight division while heavyweight prospect Yasmany Consuegra (12-0) will go against a local opponent. Also on the card promoted by Domini Boxing (Papin Lantigua) will be four Puerto Rican boxers brought over from the neighboring island by Miguel Cotto Promotions.

Celebrating his thirtieth year as a promoter and sixtieth of life, Guillermo Mayen along with his crew of Mayen Promotions returned to the Las Pulgas nightclub for his second show of the year and was joined by a sold out crowd of slightly over one thousand Tijuana, Mexico, boxing fans last night. In typical Tijuana fashion, the night was shock full of local cross border talent in twelve bouts. In the main event, super bantamweight Baja California state champion Edivaldo “Indio” Ortega (16-0-1, 8KOs) of Tijuana, climbed four pounds north and survived a knockdown to eventually stop via a controversial TKO Mexicali, Mexico’s Jose Guadalupe “Lupillo” Tapia (7-7, 3KOs) of Mexicali, Mexico, in a scheduled ten rounder.

This Saturday in Panama City, former two-division world champion Roberto “La Araña” Vasquez (32-5-1, 22 KOs) and Filipino John Mark Apolinario (17-2-2, 4 KOs) will dispute the vacant WBA interim bantamweight world title in a rematch.

“I’m ready to win this fight,” said Apolinario. “The first fight I had slight advantage. This time I hope to win clearly. I’m in good conditions. We’re on another continent but my boxing and confidence will give me the victory.”

Vazquez stated, “In the ring I’m better than Apolinario. I have a lot of experience and I’ve faced the best. This time there’s a lot to gain and we are in my country. I’m ready for big fights and I’m one of the best in this division.”

On the same night IBF light flyweight world champion John Riel Casimero (17-2, 10 KOs) will defend his crown against mandatory challenger Luis Rios (18-1-1, 13 KOs). (more…)
