Cojanu aiming to win Boxcino heavyweight tourney

Photo: Brandon Lluis

Heavyweight Razvan Cojanu (12-1, 7 KOs) will take on unbeaten Ed Fountain (10-0, 4 KOs) in the opening round of The Boxcino 2015 tournament February 20th. The six round bout will be held at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, NY and be televised on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights. When Fightnews last spoke with Cojanu, he was on on his way to China to fight veteran Manuel Pucheta of Argentina for the vacant WBO Asia Pacific heavyweight title this past July. Cojanu went on to win the fight and title by way of seventh round TKO. The nearly 6’8 Romanian-born and Southern California-based Cojanu also earned a WBO #15 world ranking shortly afterwards. Instead of basking in his success Razvan continued his training throughout entire winter holiday season. Whether it was putting in his roadwork or hours on end in the gym there was no holiday vacation for Cojanu.

The field of the Boxcino tournament was announced last and seems to be very evenly matched on paper. With a win over Fountain, Cojanu would face the winner between Donovon Dennis (10-1, 8 KOs) and Steve Vukosa (10-0, 4 KOs) in the heavyweight semifinals, which will take place April 10 at a location to be determined. Team Cojanu is confident their guy will be the last man standing. (more…)

By Gary “Digital” Williams

The boxing scene in Washington, DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia moved to great heights in 2014, earning the theme “The Year Of Advancement.” Many boxers in the Beltway Region did exactly that — advance to a higher level of performance. The young talent in the area progressed to a point where they became household names not only at home but throughout the boxing world.

In 2014, Beltway Boxers appeared on national television in the United States 30 times. To put this stat another way, a Beltway Boxer appeared on national TV at least once in nine out of 12 months. In January, there were seven appearances by locals and six appeared in August.

Gary Russell, Jr., Thomas Williams, Jr. and Emanuel Taylor had the most national TV appearances with three. The Peterson Brothers, Dusty Harrison, Immanuwel Aleem, Bayan Jargal, and Antoine Douglas all had two appearances. James Stevenson, Samuel Neequaye, Daniel Attah, Alexander Johnson, Andrew Farmer, Danny Kelly, Fernando Guerrero, Dominic Wade, Cory Cummings, Cecil McCalla and Jerry Odom all had one TV appearance.

Three of our boxers appeared on TV in other locations around the world — Tony Thompson in Germany, Tony Jeter in Denmark and Jessie Nicklow in Japan. (more…)
