Groves sends Johnson back into likely retirement

Commonwealth super middleweight titleholder George Groves (15-0, 12 KOs) dominated former world champion Glen Johnson (51-18-2, 35 KOs) on Saturday night at the ExCel Arena in London. Groves outworked Johnson, as the 43-year-old “Road Warrior” who had come out of retirement seemed to be in good shape but was mostly unable to pull the trigger. Groves punished Johnson more and more as the bout progressed. Groves was credited with a knockdown just before the final bell. Scores were 120-107, 120-107, 119-109. Four straight losses for Johnson.

Pajkic retains title in rematch

By Lindy Lindell
Photos by Bob Ryder

Neven Pajkic did what he had to do. Faced with a challenge from Shane Andreesen, who was fresh off two solid wins, including a career best win on ESPN over the 31-4 Brazilian Raphael Zunbano, Pajkic retained his Canadian Heavyweight Title with an easy, if not dominating performance over a strangely reluctant Andressen over ten rounds. The bout headlined Get in the Ring 2012’s charity event attended by 900+ folks at Windsor, Ontario’s Caboto Club.

Andreesen, from British Columbia, who had much to gain besides the Canadian belt in that he had lost an earlier contest versus Pajkic four years earlier over eight rounds, showed up at a seeming ready-to-go 218; Rajkic (now 17-1) was coming off a knockout loss to Tyson Fury. As the cliché goes, the stars were seemingly aligned for Andreesen to have his best chance for victory. (more…)

Last night, 8 Count Productions and Round 3 Productions gave their fans who packed into Cicero Stadium in Cicero, IL, an early Christmas gift in “Crosstown Rivals: Windy City Fight Night 23,” the year’s final installment of the promotional company’s popular “Windy City Fight Night” series.

In the main event of the evening, in an all-action brawl between two of Chicago’s most courageous and entertaining fighters, junior welterweight Adrian “El Tigre” Granados (11-2-1, 7 KOs) used his clean punching, tight defense, and world-class ring generalship to beat-up and then stop an incredibly game and remarkably chinned Antonio “Aztec God of War” Canas (6-1-1, 3 KOs) in the fifth round of one of the best fights of the year.

Famous Muaythai champion Norasing Lookbanyai (4-0,2 KOs) impressively captured the vacant PABA 115lb title as he stopped PBF champion Michael Escobia (9-3-1,2 KOs) in the opening round on Friday at the ground of Chaiya District Office in Suratthani, Thailand. After excitingly exchanging punches, Norasing landed a well-time left hook which dropped the Filipino champion, then he displayed one-side attack which floored his opponent again, forcing referee to stop the bout at 2:04.

In other action, WBC female silver 118lb champion Usanakorn Kokietgym (14-2,13 KOs) easily stopped Chinese Li Yun Ting in round three. Former IBF Youth 140lb title holder Decha Kokietgym (31-11-3,16 KOs) scored a six round unanimous decision over Chinese Jen Yu Jia.

By Jeff Reiners for Fightnews.com

A mariachi band entertained a legion of Jorge Arce supporters prior to the weigh in Friday in Houston. The event drew a large contingent of Mexican fans hoping to spur their man to an upset. Legends in attendance included Marco Antonio Barrera and Julio Cesar Chavez. Both fan favorites were swarmed as they prepared for a joint appearance on Mexican television.

Arce weighed in naked at 122, with Donaire helping to hold the shielding towel. Donaire came in a half pound under the junior featherweight limit at 121.5, immediately consuming a sports drink after making weight.

The two combatants playfully tugged at the WBO belt they will fight for Saturday night. Each fighter showed mutual respect for the other. The mood was joyous as Arce fans yelled for their man while Donaire struck an incredible hulk pose for the assembled media.

…while the Mexico-Philippines rivalry rages on

By Karl Freitag

For the second week in a row, the boxing rivalry between Mexico and the Philippines has the world’s attention. Last Saturday in two high profile Las Vegas bouts, Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez savagely KO’d Filipino Manny Pacquiao, and Mexican Miguel “Titere” Vazquez successfully defended his IBF lightweight title by outclassing previously undefeated Filipino Mercito Gesta.

On Saturday, Filipino Nonito Donaire has a chance to avenge those losses against Mexican Jorge Arce at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. In his career, Donaire is 13-0 against Mexican fighters and he is a prohibitive betting favorite to end the Philippines’ losing streak. However don’t tell that to Arce. “The triumph of Marquez, my experience, my style, my delivery in the ring and all the harsh criticism from my detractors makes me super motivated,” he stated. “Get ready to see what I will do with Nonito Donaire on Saturday!”

The “Road Warrior” is back on the Road

glenjohnson_mao
By Matt Thompson
Photo: Mary Ann Owen

Tonight the “Road Warrior” Glen Johnson will step into the ring for the 71st time as a professional at the ExCel Arena in London to battle super middleweight George Grove for his British and Commonwealth title. Being a Jamaican native qualifies Johnson for the title, but more importantly, who he is and what he has accomplished is the reason that Johnson is facing one of England’s hottest prospects who has only one-quarter of his experience and is twenty years his junior. The twenty-four year old Groves is not only defending his title but he is fighting for the recognition and legitimacy he would earn with a victory over a former world champ, particularly a warrior as highly regarded as Johnson.

Johnson announced his retirement in July of this year after his decision loss to light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara. At the time, Johnson did not believe that he had the effectiveness to compete at the highest level. As is frequently the case in boxing, it was a short-lived retirement. Now a scant five months later, Johnson finds himself hopeful of finding his Fountain of Youth “Across the Pond!” (more…)

Pascal wins single-handed (again)

pascalinjury

By Dave Spencer, photo: Dave Spencer

It was supposed to be an opportunity to tune-up and shake off some rust after 19 months away from the ring. It would instead open up old wounds and once again attach the face of bravery to light-heavyweight Jean Pascal (27-2-1 16KO). The former world champion fought for eight rounds one-handed as he injured his left arm in the second round and was forced to improvise over the course of the next eight as he was still able to dominate Polish opponent Aleksy Kuziemski (23-5 7KO) and win a hands down 100-88, 98-90, 98-90 decision, scoring a pair of knockdowns for good measure.

Two-time world title challenger Kuziemski could offer up very little and often looked like a deer in the headlights as Pascal moved, switched to southpaw, and threw a bucket full of right hands to keep control of the fight.

It was the third time Pascal has been forced to fight with one hand in his career, but the first time it has been the left that has failed him. “I think this was the worst one because it happened in the second round,” said Pascal after the fight. It was really painful after the second but I was able to do one arm. I think I did a pretty good job with only one arm and I think I’m proud of myself and hope people understand that.” (more…)

Pascal beats Kuziemski with one hand

By Dave Spencer/Matt Casavant at ringside

Former WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (27-2-1, 16 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over former Olympian and two-time WBO world challenger Aleksy Kuziemski (23-5, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. A one-armed Pascal managed to score two knockdowns to score a 100-88, 98-90, 98-90 decision against an overmatched Kuziemski who was never a threat despite Pascal seperating his shoulder in the 4th round.

Pascal previously separated his right shoulder in 2009 in a fight against Adrian Diaconu but this time it was the left. The injury puts in danger a possible match-up with WBC Champion Chad Dawson that was scheduled for the spring.

David Lemieux scored another highlight real knockout, landing a devastating straight right in the 2nd round that sent his opponent to the canvas, the Russian Albert Ayrapetyan (20-4, 9 KOs) whose corner threw in the towel before he even had a chance to get up. Lemieux soon to be 24 years of age, moves to (28-2, 27 KOs) and has now won 3 straight fights by KO since his decision loss at the hands of Joachim Alcine a year ago. Much was made of Ayrapetyan having lasted 11 rounds versus the current middleweight champion of the world Sergio Martinez but that was 7 years ago, and Ayrapetyan did not react well to Lemieux’s punching power early, twice going down in the 1st round due to a powerful left hook. David sensing his opponent’s vulnerability pounced on Ayrapetyan at the start of the 2nd and was able to secure the stoppage at 1:26 min of the round. David Lemieux is now scheduled to headline on ESPN FNF at the Bell Centre February 8th versus 33 year old Colombian Jose Miguel Torres (26-5, 23 KOs)… (more…)

Oliveira goes for two titles tomorrow

By Robert Coster

Brazilian junior middleweight prospect Michael “The Brazilian Rocky” Oliveira (18-1, 13 KOs) will be looking to win two regional titles, the WBA Fedebol and the WBC Fecarbox crowns, tomorrow in La Romana, Dominican Republic. His opponent is experienced spoiler David Toribio (19-13, 12 KOs), the Dominican 154lb champion. Toribio has in the past notched the scalp of four unbeaten boxers in the USA and the Dominican Republic.

Understandably, the 22-year-old Oliveira is not taking his adversary lightly. “We know that Toribio’s record is deceptive and that he is a cagey boxer. I have trained hard for this fight and a victory and two titles will be a big step forward in my career.”

On the undercard, junior Middleweight knockout artist Kanat Islam (7-0, 7 KOs) of Kazakstan will be tested by veteran Humberto Toledo (41-8-2, 25 KOs) of Ecuador in a fight for the WBA Fedecaribe title. Kanat, who has never gone past five rounds, will be taking a big leap forward against the experienced and granite-jawed Toledo. The card will be held at the Pedro Julio Nolasco Coliseum and is promoted by Domini Boxing.

Both Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao were declared “clean” by the Nevada State Athletic Commission following their post fight drug tests. Marquez’ test was of particular interest as he was ripped like never before and had been working with strength coach and doping expert Angel Heredia prior to the fight.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao was given a mandatory 120-day medical suspension by the NSAC. He is required to have no boxing-related contact workouts for 90 days and before any future fight he will undergo extensive brain exams. September 14th, 2013 has been targeted as a possible return date.

After all the drama between The Ultimate Fighter season 16 coaches Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin, not being able to see the two punch each other in the face tomorrow may be a bit… disappointing to say the least. If you’re a fight fan, however, Carwin’s replacement, Matt Mitrione basically ensures that the dynamics of the original bout are still firmly in place. Mainly 1) there will be a lot of face punching and 2) one of the two men will likely get knocked out. (more…)
