Full Report: Solomon-Hopkins

By Phil Doherty

WBA #1-ranked welterweight contender Brad “King” Solomon (17-0, 7 KOs) built his undefeated record on an uncanny ability to change his style according to the opponent across from him. Last night at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood FL, Solomon defended his WBA International title against fellow counter punching opponent Demetrius “The Gladiator” Hopkins (30-2-1, 11 KOs).

During the promotion leading up to the bout, Hopkins called Solomon a “wanna-be Roy Jones”. Just prior to the fight, Solomon addressed it from his dressing room: “He wanna be his uncle (Bernard Hopkins) and you know back in the day, when they both was in they prime, Roy and Bernard, you know who won. So if I wanna be a whatever he wanna say. He trying to be his uncle, but he aint his uncle so I’m gonna show him better than I can tell him in the ring.” For more details and photos click here…

Kirkland crushes Berrio

By Rocco Morales at ringside

Unbeaten middleweight James Kirkland (27-0, 24 KOs) continued his reign of terror scoring a second round KO over Jhon Berrio (15-9, 11 KOs) on Friday night at the Hangar at OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, California. Kirkland found himself, surprisingly, in a real fight in the first round and was even stunned a couple times by his Colombian opponent. However, after Kirkland landed a hard body shot a minute into the second round, the fight went out of Berrio and he took a knee from a mystery punch and was counted out by the referee. Time was 1:05. Matchmaker Eric Gomez of Golden Boy Promotions was upset with the effort, or lack thereof, by Berrio and instructed the California State Athletic Commission that he wished for them to withhold his purse pending further review. Kirkland will return to action for the third time in as many months on April 09th as he works his way back into title contention following his two year layoff.

In the main event, unbeaten lightweight Luis Ramos Jr. (18-0, 8 KOs) was fortunate to get a majority eight round decision over hard luck loser Jose Hernandez (10-5-1, 4 KOs). The taller Hernandez was able to control action for most of the fight with his jab and straight right crosses from the outside and was able to also score on the inside with hard uppercuts and hooks to the body of Ramos. For most of the fight, Ramos was trying to figure out a way to get on the inside but was unable to get past the accurate and hard punches of Hernandez. Hernandez stunned Ramos on many occasions during the fight and seemed the clear cut winner. While Ramos had his moments in the fight, he seemed accepting of his impending first defeat at the final bell. Fortunately for Ramos, however, the ringside judges had other ideas. Scores were 79-73, 77-75, 76-76. FightNews scored the bout 77-75 in favor of Hernandez. For more details and photos click here…

Cedric “The Bos” Boswell (34-1, 26 KOs) scored a unanimous decision victory over former WBC world heavyweight champion Oliver “The Atomic Bull” McCall (55-11, 37 KOs).

Martirosyan foe is heavy

Undefeated junior middleweight Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan (28-0 17KOs) is getting an unexpected taste of the full middleweight limit for tomorrow’s fight versus Mexico’s Bladimir Hernandez (18-4 16KOs). The fight was scheduled for a contracted weight of 156 lbs. Team Martirosyan received a call this morning informing them that the Mexican can’t make 156 but could make 158. Martirosyan quickly accepted and shortly afterwards Team Martirosyan received another call saying Hernandez couldn’t make 158 and that the fight would have to be at the full middleweight limit of 160. The Armenian came to fight and that’s what he intends to do. The California based fighter released the following statement:

“I traveled all the way to Canada to fight. A lot of fans out here have been telling me they are coming to the fight. I don’t want to let them down. We were supposed to fight at 156 and now we aren’t sure if this guy can even make 160. The ‘Nightmare’ came to fight and now I’m going to do be making my middleweight debut.”

Japan stands up against Quake

By Joe Koizumi

The Japanese boxing fraternity has made a strong step forward to cope with the disastrous damage caused by the horrible earthquakes and tsunami since last Friday. At first we have to appeal to the world that the disaster only took place in the northern Japan, north to Tokyo, Fukushima, Miyagi and Iwate Prefectures. Therefore, the areas west to Tokyo has been so undamaged that fight cards will be held as scheduled: March 21, in Osaka, Teppei Aoki (Japan) vs. Louie Bantigue (Philippines); March 27, in Nagoya, OPBF super-bantam elimination bout between world-rated Hiromasa Ohashi (Japan) vs. Jhunriel Ramonal (Philippins); March 27, in Kobe, world-rated 154-pounder Yuki Nonaka (Japan) vs. Ade Alfons (Indonesia).

Only shows slated in this late-March at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo have been postponed until May—to mourn people dead in the disaster, and other cards in April in Tokyo will certainly take place as scheduled. (more…)

Undefeated IBF super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute (27-0 22KO) is set for another party at the Bell Centre in Montreal Saturday night. But after mowing through the 168-pound division and patiently awaiting Showtime’s Super-Six tournament to eventually end, Bute stands alone as a party of one awaiting bigger challenges.

While the future holds promises of bigger fights including Mikkel Kessler who will be at ringside Saturday night along with the eventual winner of the tournament, Bute for the present time will have to be content with Brian Magee (34-3-1 24KO) of Ireland who at 35 years old makes his first attempt at a world title.

Michael Katsidis “The Great” is a fighter who marches to the beat of his own training drum. While it is not uncommon for fighters to isolate themselves during training, Katsidis takes this to another level as he trains in Pai, Thailand (near Chang Mai) and Naklua, Thailand (near Bangkok) and travels over 3,600 miles from his native Towoomba, Australia for camp. For over seven years, Katsidis has called Thailand his pre-fight home as his team owns and operates three private training locations in the country.

Solis’ Canada Connection

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

There is a definite Canadian-connection to Odlanier Solis (17-0, 12 KOs) who battles Vitali Klitschko (41-2, 38 KOs) Saturday in Germany and seen live the USA on EPIX and in Canada on Super Channel at 5pm. Both well known and respected trainers Russ Anber and Marc Ramsay will join forces with Solis trainer Pedro Diaz in hopes that the undefeated Cuban fighter will be the one to end the 7 year reign of Klitschko. Ramsay is best known as the man behind WBC light-heavyweight champion Jean Pascal while Russ Anber who will serve as cutman and wrap the hands of Solis has guided Otis Grant to a world middleweight championship and looks to be doing the same with young knockout artist David Lemieux.

“I think he has the speed agility to give Klitschko his toughest fight since Lennox Lewis,” Anber told Fightnews before boarding his flight to Germany. “In fact I’m not sure that Klitschko has ever come across anybody as quick and agile as Solis.” The trio of Diaz, Anber and Ramsay are instrumental in a number of boxers along with Olympic Gold Medalist Solis. Each trainer has their own fighters but assist in the preparation of the other’s stable of boxers including Pascal, Lemieux, Felix Diaz and Antonin Decarie.
