Salinas stops Lorenzo in 6

By Robert Coster

Up-and-coming jr featherweight Yordanis Salinas (18-0-1, 12 KOs), WBA #5, WBC #6, kept his WBA Fedebol title with a definitive TKO victory over Dominican challenger Geysi Lorenzo (11-3, 2 KOs) in the sixth round on Monday night in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Salinas came out strong, trying to make it a short night and scored a knockdown in the first round but the game Lorenzo did get up. The Cuban-born, Miami-based Salinas then proceeded to dominate his opponent in the next five rounds with superior speed, skill and power. Lorenzo’s corner did not allow him to come out for seventh round.

In another noteworthy result, Venezuelan jr middleweight Jean Carlos Prada (27-0-1, 19 KOs), WBA #10, blasted away physically smaller Luis Ernesto Jose (31-10-2, 26 KOs) in just one round. The 14 bout international card was held at the Carlos-Teo-Cruz Coliseum.

Broner: HBO should change their logo to my face!

Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KOs) silenced at least some of critics Saturday evening with his dominating performance over Vincente Escobedo (26-4, 15 KOs). He stepped to microphone, a bit less brash and flashy than normal, and also speaking words of respect for his opponent. “I want to thank Vincente for taking the fight,” Broner said. “He will fight for a world title someday. It’s just that today is not that day.”

When asked by FightNews about the high emotion and controversy around the events of the day effected him in the ring, Broner replied, “I didn’t let it get too close to me. I never had any doubt that this fight was not going to go on.” When asked about the finish of the fight, the former champ said, “I was trying to take him to deep water. I was touching him, touching him, but we found out that he wanted to stay shallow.” (more…)

Mendez-Honorio: Full Report

By Phil Doherty

South Florida boxing fans first made the acquaintance of Acquinity Sports last January during a duo of “Dominican Domination” cards from Hollywood Beach. Last night at The Seminole Hard Rock they took another step towards securing at least one (and quite probably two) of their stable of fighters for a world title bout in the same local venue.

Given the short shrift boxing generally receives in local sports editors’ and fickle fans’ minds, their dedication to stage shows at least once every eight weeks speaks to their own fighting spirit. IBF #2-ranked super featherweight contender Argenis “La Tormenta” Mendez (20-2, 10 KOs) of the Dominican Republic held off an aggressive, foul-filled assault from IBF #7-ranked Martin “El Brochas” Honorio (32-8-1, 16 KOs) to earn a 12-round unanimous decision.

By: Jose E. Santiago

Last night in Atlanta GA at the Buckhead Theater in front of a standing room only crowd, Delgado Promotions, along with Mazereon Management managed to put together a very exciting night of boxing and entertainment for a very raucous crowd. The event was not only successful based on the hard hitting action in the ring, but also due to a special appearance by two time former world champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams. Williams was presented with an honorary “Georgia Fighter of the Decade” award by promoter Lisa Hudson-Webb and Alan Santana of the WBF. When presented with the award the sellout crowd rose to their feet as camera flashes went off throughout the venue. Williams graciously accepted the award and spent the rest of the evening taking pictures and signing autographs.

In the main event, hometown favorite Paul “The Truth” Delgado (26-12-1, 4 KOs) fell short of winning the vacant WBF Intercontinental Super Welterweight title, as Mike “El Cangri” Ruiz (17-8, 9 KOs) of New York traveled south to Atlanta with an upset on his mind. (more…)

Selcuk Aydin makes 7 day check weight

WBC Silver welterweight champion will certainly not “pull a Broner” at his championship clash with Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero in San Jose next week (Saturday, July 28th live on Showtime Championship Boxing). At the mandatory WBC 7-day weight check Aydin brought 149 lbs. to the scale – which actually means that he was closer to the official limit one week ahead of his fight than Adrian Broner was at his official weigh-in for Escobero. The WBC officially allows up to 154 lbs. seven days before welterweight title fights. “The good thing about signing contracts in boxing is you know when you will fight and at which weight you will compete. So it’s actually quite easy to be in the limit in time when you know what you’re doing”, said head coach Conny Mittermeier. “As I said before we’ve had a great training camp and Selcuk is in tremendous shape. You have to feel sorry for Robert Guerrero who will be steamrolled by a fighting machine.”

“I can’t wait for the fight to finally begin”, added Aydin. “Hey Robert, look at me – and stop looking past me. This is the guy who will break your jaw. I know that you haven’t been in the ring for more than a year now. So you know how it feels to take a long break. You will have to take another year off when I’m done with you!”

Danny “The Bronx Bomber” Santiago (31-5, 27 KOs) has arrived in Perth Australia ahead of his clash with Three Time World Champion Danny “The Green Machine” Green (31-5-1, 19 KOs) at Challenge Stadium on Wednesday July 25. Santiago and his team went through a ten hour delay after his flight to Brisbane was diverted to Tahiti, and then New Zealand because of a medical emergency resulting in a missed connection to Perth. But the Bronx Bomber said the near 40 hour plane trip from Florida won’t affect him at and plans on making his fight against the Green Machine as short as possible at Challenge Stadium on Wednesday. Santiago said he had not seen too much of Green and leaves all that up to his trainer Luis Camacho who turns 75 the day after the fight next week and looks in great shape.

“We know how Green fights and we know he’s tough, he’s a good puncher, he’s a very good fighter, he is a real tough son of a gun,” Camacho said

Broner stops Escobedo in fifth round

Former WBO super featherweight champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (24-0, 20 KOs) remains unsolved as he methodically picked apart Vincente Escobedo (26-4, 15 KOs) in a dominating performance, finishing off his opponent in the fifth round via TKO on Saturday night at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. Broner remained completely composed as controversy swirled around this bout, with Broner losing his WBO junior lightweight title on the scale Friday by coming in 3.5 pounds overweight. Broner also failed an agreed upon weight Saturday morning, but the bout continued as he paid Escobedo an undisclosed sum. Broner was able to land with both hands, not worrying too much about the punches from the smaller Escobedo and in the final round, he let go from all angles and Escobedo was unable to defend himself. Midway through the round, he landed a right hand that hurt Escobedo and then as he felt the energy pulsing through the crowd, he windmilled the right hand, and then followed Escobedo along the ropes, pounding away to his body. Escobedo’s corner frantically waved a towel for 10 seconds, trying to get the attention of the referee, and mercifully, he turned their way, stopping the contest. Time was 2:42. (more…)

In the main event of the evening from the Ontario Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA, Charles “Pride Of Paramount” Huerta (17-3, 9 KOs) got back on the winning track stopping veteran Eduardo Arcos (18-8-1, 5 KOs). Huerta, making his debut with Thompson Boxing and coming off a 15 month layoff, boxed effectively behind a stiff jab as he patiently walked down the awkward Arcos. Arcos, entered the fight the loser of his last five fights and after starting his career with a 15-0 record, he’s been unable to compete once stepping up in competition. Both fighters exchanged seemingly deliberate low blows in the fourth round and were each warned by referee, Raul Caiz Jr.. This proved good for the audience as Arcos then did his best to make a fight of it. Action really heated in the fifth round as Arcos went on the attack but his wide punches were mostly unable to penetrate the defense of Huerta. Huerta was able to seize control of the round to bloody and stagger Arcos to end the round. Arcos’ corner, after seeing the condition of Arcos between the fifth and sixth round, stopped the fight making Huerta the winner by TKO at 3:00 of fifth round. (more…)
