The 12th Round: Boxing belongs to the fighters and to the fans

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

After a memorable month of September in which, boxing provided tremendous fights all over the world, we can only look towards the future and expect to see those special fights be made a reality because that is what the fans of this great sport deserve. The fans must get what boxing can provide. I trust all involved parties will work together and make then happen.

On September 10th, two boxing cards took boxing to the highest levels as four undefeated champions fought in sold out arenas. GGG defeated Kell Brook in London’s O2 Arena and Chocolatito conquered his fourth world title in a great fight against Carlos Cuadras at The Forum in Los Angeles. On September 16th, a doubleheader in Osaka Japan saw Hosumi Hasegawa win his third world championship against Hugo Ruiz and the longest reigning champion of today, Shinsuke Yamanaka, got up from the canvas to knock out former champion Anselmo Moreno in a much-anticipated rematch. On September 17th, Canelo Alvarez fought in front of 50,000+ fans at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium and on September 24th, Jorge Linares had to win the last three rounds to defeat Anthony Crolla in Manchester, England.

Juanma: I am a better fighter than ever before

Former two-division world champion Juan Manuel “Juanma” López (34-5, 31 KOs) says he plans to knock out bitter arch-rival Wilfredo “Papito” Vázquez, Jr. (24-6-1, 19 KOs), also a past world titlist, in their October 8 pay-per-view showdown in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

“I still think I have a lot left in the tank,” López confidently said from his Puerto Rican training camp. “This is the first fight of my career that I feel I owe to fans because of the history behind it. I don’t think there will be any rust because I have been training for many, months and I have been inside the gym working hard. Maybe the agility I had four or five years ago isn’t quite the same, true, but at the same time I am more mature and much more calm and more intelligent in the ring. I definitely feel that I am a better fighter than ever before.” (more…)

Sparse TV schedule for October

Normally a busy month for televised boxing, the month of October looks like slim pickings in the U.S., at least at the moment. With the second cancellation of Fury-Klitschko 2, it appears that HBO, Showtime and Premier Boxing Champions could be sitting out the month. The normally active PBC may still announce a schedule of October fight telecasts, and CBSSN could come through with some shows, but as it stands right now, the only announced live televised boxing on free TV in the U.S. will be carried by Spanish language networks Telemundo, UniMas, Estrella and beIN Sports Espanol. There is also an October 8 pay-per-view event featuring Juanma Lopez vs. Wilfredo Vazquez Jr.

The good news is things with HBO and Showtime (and hopefully PBC) will heat up again in November.

Wilson pressed the fight from the start, taking it to Ancona, who looked to sit back and counter. Wilson dropped Ancona in the fourth round with a hard left hook and went on to dominate the remainder of the fight with the more precise and busier attack. All three judges scored the fight 80-71, giving Wilson every round. (more…)

Late surge propelled Linares scorecard comeback

By Karl Freitag

Newly crowned WBA lightweight champion Jorge Linares needed to win the last three rounds on all three judges’ scorecards to dethrone reigning titleholder Anthony Crolla on Saturday night in Manchester, England. At the end of nine rounds, judges John Keane and Fernando Barbosa had Crolla ahead 87-85 and 86-85 respectively. Judge Guillermo Pineda had it 87-84 for Linares. Had Crolla won even one of the last three rounds, he would have retained his title with a draw.

Former champ Nietes shuts out Sosa

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

Longtime light flyweight king Donnie Nietes made his flyweight debut in style, shutting out fellow former light flyweight champion Edgar Sosa in the main event from StubHub Center in Carson, California. All three judges scored the bout 120-108.

Nietes, (39-1-4, 22 KOs), who also ran his unbeaten streak to an incredible twelve years, put on a boxing masterclass, blocking or sidestepping nearly everything thrown by Sosa, while countering superbly with a diversity of punches, including left uppercuts and straight right hands that repeatedly hurt or wobbled Sosa. Sosa, (52-10, 30 KOs), who once defended his version of the light flyweight title ten times between 2007-2009, is admittedly past his prime and was simply too slow to catch the deceptively slick Nietes, and his reflexes too worn to avoid getting countered from all angles.

In the co-feature, welterweight Gaku Takahashi (15-6-1, 7 KOs) scored a second round TKO over Kim Poulsen (27-4, 7 KOs). Southpaw Takahashi dropped Poulson with a crushing shot to the jaw at the end of round two and Poulson wasn’t allowed to continue in round three due to a possible broken jaw.

In a clash of unbeaten super welterweights, Main Events prospect Madiyar Ashkeyev (6-0, 3 KOs) pounded out a six round unanimous decision over Martez Jackson (3-1-2, 2 KOs). Ashkeyev was deducted a point for a low blow in round four, but he made up the point by dropping Jackson in round five. Scores were 59-53, 58-54, 58-54.

WBO #8 Magsayo, WBO #1 Villanueva victorious

By David Robinett and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

One of the Philippines’ best young fighters, 21-year-old Mark Magsayo, got a chance to showcase himself, probably a few rounds longer than necessary, easily besting the game but overmatched Ramiro Robles over twelve rounds to retain the WBO International title on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson California. Unanimous decision scores for Magsayo were 118-108, 119-107, 120-106.

Robles, (13-6-1, 8 KOs), a late replacement for original opponent Ruben Garcia, won the respect of the crowd by not quitting despite a sustained beating by WBO #8 rated Magsayo, (15-0, 11 KOs), but offered little else in terms of resistance or drama. Magsayo knocked Robles down with a right hook to the head in round two, and in nearly every other round punished Robles relentlessly to the body, particularly with the right hand. The right hook to the body dropped Robles in round seven, and almost again in round eight, when Robles doubled over but stayed off the canvas after yet another digging right hook. To his credit though Robles kept coming forward, although the last three or four rounds was more sparring session than competitive fight after Magsayo eased off the gas. (more…)

Three-division world champion and WBC champion in recess Jorge Linares (41-3, 27 KOs) won an entertaining twelve round unanimous decision to dethrone WBA lightweight champion Anthony Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Crolla’s backyard of Manchester, England. Linares was sharp early on. Crolla started applying intense pressure as the bout progressed. Referee Terry O’Connor disrupted Linares’ excellent body work several times for questionable low blows. Crolla cut Linares with a big right hand in round five. Linares rocked Crolla in round six. Close rounds after that with Crolla bringing the heat and Linares sharpshooting. Linares seemed to get his second wind in round ten and landed crisp, clean shots over the last three rounds to win 115-114, 117-111, 115-113.

Fortuna crushes Cabrera in two

By Robert Coster

Former two-division WBA champion Javier Fortuna returned to ring action with a two round blowout of fellow Dominican Marlyn Cabrera. The jr lightweight contest was a disappointing mismatch with Fortuna (30-1-1, 21 KOs) decking Cabrera (22-1, 10 KOs) twice in the second round and forcing the referee to halt the uneven affair. Cabrera stepped into the ring with an unbeaten record over negligible opposition and proved to be way out of his league with the former world champion.

In a co-feature bout, rising jr middleweight Jeison Rosario (12-0, 9 KOs) stopped Carlos Jairo Cruz (17-1, 10 KOs) in 2 rounds. Again, a case of a good boxer exposing one with a padded record. The card was held at the Sambil Commercial Center in Santo Domingo and promoted by Cesar (Manguita) Mercedes.

Fury-Klitschko is off again, Team Fury cites undisclosed medical condition

WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has pulled out of his October 29 rematch against former champ Wladimir Klitschko due to Fury being declared “medically unfit.” It’s the second time Fury has pulled out of the fight, the first time Fury cited an ankle injury.

Geale says Green should be too strong for “The Man” in a bout that will not be attractive because both boxers are past their best. In 2006, Mundine clearly defeated Green in a super middleweight fight that had over a 30,000 live gate in Sydney. No date or venue yet, but they have agreed to fight at 83kg (183lbs).
