Yoyo retains SA title for third time

By Ron Jackson

Mzolisi Yoyo retained the South African junior welterweight title for the third time when he outpointed Samuel Malinga by wide margins over twelve round rounds in an entertaining fight at the Mdantsane Indoor Sports Centre near East London on Sunday afternoon. After a slow start Yoyo who will 35 on December 25 picked up the pace and using his educated left jab he outboxed Malinga through rounds three to ten before he began to tire in the last two rounds, when he let the challenger back into the fight. In a boxing exhibition the champion belied his age using all his skills too keep Malinga off balance throughout as he cleverly moved in and out to land with combinations. Going into the last round it was a desperate Malinga who came out knowing that he had to score a knockout to win the title. Despite being backed up and taking a few shots to the head the cagey champion managed to survive and was a comfortable winner at the end. Judges Simphiwo Mbini and Lulama Mtya scored it 118-111 and 119-111 whilst judge Allen Matakane had it a complete shutout for Yoyo with a score of 120-109. Yoyo improved his record to 19-4, 14 KOs and the 33-year-old Malinga saw his record drop to 22-9-3, 14 KOs. (more…)

Four world title bouts in Japan on Dec. 31

By Joe Koizumi

No less than four world title bouts will take place in Japan on no other than the last day of the year. We traditionally make it a rule to drink and sit up late until the prosperous-to-be new year comes, but it may be a good condition for television networks to get high ratings since great many people stay at home. Should the four title goes be shown by a single TV company, it won’t be a problem as our aficionados will watch all. But the three will be broadcast by TV Tokyo, and another by TBS TV—most probably at the same time. We are simply afraid that we won’t be able to see all.

In Tokyo, WBA super-feather champ Takashi Uchiyama (18-0-1, 15 KOs), Japan, will participate in a unification bout with interim titlist Bryan Vasquez (29-0, 15 KOs), Costa Rica, in a main event. WBC super-fly ruler Yota Sato (25-2-1, 12 KOs) will risk his belt against unbeaten OPBF champ and compatriot Ryo Akaho (19-0-2, 12 KOs) in a highly anticipated encounter. Japanese veteran Kohei Kono (27-7, 10 KOs) will have an ambitious crack at the WBA 115-pound throne against formidable defending titlist Tepparith Kokietgym (21-2, 13 KOs) of Thailand over twelve. Uchiyama is making his sixth defense against the unheralded interim champ.

In Osaka, WBA 105-pound champ Kazuto Ioka renounced his belt, and his stablemate and OPBF 108-pound ruler Ryo Miyazaki (17-0-3, 10 KOs) will dispute the vacant belt with ex-titleholder Pornsawan Porpramok (26-4-1, 16 KOs), a tremendously tough Thailander, over twelve frames. The former champ Ioka will also appear as a 108-pounder in the year-end show. (more…)

Defending WBC/WBA super lightweight champion Danny Garcia (25-0, 16 KOs) scored a fourth round KO over Mexican ring legend Erik Morales (52-9, 36 KOs) on Saturday night at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. In a one-sided beating, Garcia laid out Morales with a clean left hook that spun him half way around. Time was 1:23. After the fight, Morales said this would be his last fight in the United States, but he wants a farewell fight in Tijuana.

In a bout switched to a non-title affair after challenger Pablo Cesar Cano failed to make weight, WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (32-4, 7 KOs) barely won a twelve round split decision. Cano (25-2-1, 19 KOs) suffered a bad cut over his left eye in round two, but stayed in the fight, finally dropping Malignaggi in round eleven. Scores were 114-113, 114-113 Malignaggi and 118-109 Cano on the third card.

Unbeaten Peter Quillin (28-0, 20 KOs) knocked down WBO middleweight champion Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam (27-1, 17 KOs) six times en route to a twelve round unanimous decision to claim his first world championship. Quillin dropped N’Jikam twice in round four, twice in round six and two more times in the twelfth. Scores were 115-107 on all cards.

Trainer Kevin Cunningham has his second two-weight world champion, as St. Louis native Devon Alexander “The Great” (24-1, 13 KOs) won an uneventful twelve round unanimous decision over reigning titleholder Randall “KO King” Bailey (43-8, 37 KOs) to win the IBF welterweight belt. Cautious of Bailey’s powerful right hand, Alexander employed the tactic of double jabbing and clinching or landing a left hand and spinning Bailey for the duration of the bout. Bailey, one of the hardest hitting fighters pound for pound, never found the opening he was seeking to end the fight. Scores were 115-111, 116-110 and 117-109 for the new champion. (more…)

Journeyman middleweight Sergio Sanders (20-9-2, 11 KOs) won a split decision over previously unbeaten Billi Godoy (26-1, 13 KOs). Godoy dropped Sanders just before the final bell, but it wasn’t enough as Sanders prevailed 76-75, 76.5-76 on two cards. Godoy was ahead 77.5-76.5 on the third card.

Pungluang Sor Singyu proved his Filipino Assassin fame is no fluke as he claimed the vacant WBO Bantamweight Crown by stopping AJ Bazooka Banal in the ninth round. The bulldozing Thai walked through the shots of Banal negating the Cebuano slugger’s power. Singyu showed a granite chin and rocked Banal with power combinations of hooks, haymakers and uppercuts.

Sor Singyu stops Banal, claims vacant WBO bantamweight crown

By Dennis Principe

Thailand’s Pungluang Sor Singyu achieved what hundreds of Thai boxers failed to do on Philippine soil, and that is to win a bout. The 2nd-ranked Sor Singyu made the victory sweeter as he captured the vacant WBO bantamweight crown by stopping Filipino top contender AJ “Bazooka” Banal in the 9th round Saturday night at the MOA Arena in Pasay City.

The 24-year old Sor Singyu started slowly as Banal was able to connect some counter blows and body shots. An accidental clash of heads in the third round resulted in an ugly cut on Banal’s right eyebrow that eventually served as Sor Singyu’s target. Sor Singyu slowly gained momentum by relentlessly attacking Banal with combinations though he got caught with stiff jabs and uppercuts by a backpedalling Banal. In the 6th, Banal was winning the round with good uppercuts & 1-2 combinations but was later assessed a point for low blow. Sor Singyu’s plodding style eventually paid off as he connects a strong right that nearly threw Banal off ring. Referee Tony Weeks however ruled it as a slip but Sor Singyu, sensing that Banal was in deep trouble, tried to go for the kill. Banal tried to fight back but the exchanges resulted in another fall with Weeks administering a mandatory count. A dazed Banal was able to stand up but Weeks waved off the fight at 1:45 of the 9th canto. At the time of stoppage, Judges Raul Caiz, Jr. and Levi Martinez had Sor Singyu ahead, 76-75 while Robert Hoyle saw Banal leading, 77-74.

The win improves Sor Singyu’s record to 43-1, with 28 knockouts while Banal drops to 28-2-1 with 20 KOs. Banal was also Sor Singyu’s 17th Filipino victim.
