Bellew-Miranda on September 8

Light heavyweight Tony Bellew will face Edison Miranda on September 8 as he co-headlines a bumper card at the Alexandra Palace in London alongside Darren Barker, who returns to the ring against Italian middleweight champion Simone Rotolo.

“He’s a World class name and the sort of guy I’ve been looking to fight for some time now,” said Bellew. “When you look at the guys he’s fought and the titles he’s boxed for you know you are sharing the ring with someone who is at the top level and it should be a great fight as he can punch and he comes to fight.”

Former super middleweight contender Les Sherrington (28-6, 17 KOs) will step into the ring against former IBF world champion Yory Boy Campas (100-16-1, 79 KOs) over twelve rounds in what could be his toughest fight to date, on Saturday with the vacant WBF world middleweight title and IBF Pan Pacific titles up for grabs at the Gold Coast Convention Centre, Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia. Training under the expert guidance of Brendan Smith – Sherrington is in the best fighting shape of his career. The former IBF rated Sherrington has scored wins over former world championship challengers Rubin Williams of the USA, Shannan Taylor and Nader Hamdan of Australia.

Sherrington said “This is the biggest fight of my life. The prep has been absolutely perfect and it had to be because this is my biggest fight.” (more…)

Burgos to face Beltran-Martinez winner?

Former world title challenger Juan Carlos Burgos (30-1, 20 KOs) will be ringside for the August 4th super featherweight clash between Miguel Beltran Jr. (27-1, 17 KOs) and Ramon ‘Rocky’ Martinez (25-1-1, 16 KOs). With former WBO 130 pound champion Adrien Broner stripped of his title after failing to make weight for his TKO victory of Vincente Escobedo this past Saturday, the Burgos camp has their eye on obtaining that belt.

“It is a very good possibility that the winner of Martinez/Beltran could fight for the vacant title even against Burgos,” said WBO President Francisco “Paco” Valcárcel. Burgos was soundly beaten in a thriller in 2010 versus Japan’s Hozumi Hasegawa for the vacant WBC Featherweight title, but has rebounded to win five straight under the guidance of long time advisor Roberto Sandoval. Burgos scored an impressive third round stoppage of then 25-0 prospect Cesar Vazquez this past Friday on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights series.

WBA #6 Tamakoshi flattens Petchphaya

By Joe Koizumi

Having upset then WBC top ranked 130-pounder Dante Jardon in Mexico last December, 31-year-old veteran Japanese campaigner, WBA#6/WBC#14 super-feather Kyohei Tamakoshi (30-7-6, 12 KOs), 130, displayed a one-punch knockout over Petchphaya Kuldampgym (8-5-1, 2 KOs), 130, when he exploded a smashing overhand to the Thailander and flattened him for the count at 2:19 of the second round in a scheduled eight on Sunday in Kobe, Japan. Tamakoshi, who had failed to win OPBF and national 122-pound belts on three occasions, had a tough time coping with the unorthodox opponent in the opening session, but his right hand became a haymaker to quickly solve a puzzle.

In the main event, newly crowned Japanese super-fly champ Teiru Kinoshita (15-0-1, 3 KOs), 114.75, barely kept his belt by a split decision (97-94 twice, 94-96) over JBC#3 ranked Atsushi Kakutani (11-3-1, 5 KOs), 114.5, over ten.

Promoter: Senrima Kobe Promotions.

Japan Update

By Joe Koizumi

WBC#23 super-fly Hiroyuki Hisataka (21-9-1, 10 KOs), 115, landed a devastating overhand right to JBC#3 Tetsuya Hisada (19-7, 9 KOs), 114.75, and chalked up a fine TKO victory at 1:49 of the fourth session on Saturday in Osaka, Japan. Hisataka, 27, was previously unsuccessful in acquiring the world belts three times, losing to WBA flyweight champs Akifumi Sakata and Denkaosen Kaowichit, plus WBA superfly ruler Hugo Cazares. But the short but hard-hitting local prospect is still willing to fight for a world title shot for the fourth time.

Tall and lanky Hisashi Amagasa (21-4-2, 15 KOs), 125.75, kept his Japanese featherweight belt when he defeated game and durable Takuya Watanabe (15-4-1, 4 KOs), 125.75, by a unanimous decision (97-92, 99-90 and 96-94) over ten heats on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. Standing at 5’10”, Amagasa was a recklessly willing mixer without utilizing his advantageous height and reach. He, as always, loved to swap punches in the close quarter, missing the target due to ex-WBC youth champ Watanabe’s right guard. He had better learn how to utilize his left hand more properly.

In July there happened many world title bouts held in Japan, featuring four with the WBA superfly (male and female), WBC fly and WBA super-feather belts on the line. In the month of Olympic Games in London, however, we will not see any world title goes but national and OPBF title bouts will be good attractions to our fight fans in August. JBC#1 Hidenori Otake and #2 Takafumi Nakajima will dispute the vacant national 122-pound throne (renounced by Masaaki Serie) in Tokyo on August 6. Nihito Arakawa (22-1-1, 14 KOs) will risk his OPBF lightweight belt against 41-year-old veteran Takehiro Shimada (27-5-1, 17 KOs), a two-time unsuccessful world challenger, in Tokyo on August 13. This summer will be as hot as our fight scene.

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!

By Clint Rosser

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

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.

Ruiz captures WBF title

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
