Tarver-Cunningham ends in draw

By John DiSanto at ringside
Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment

In the main event at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, heavyweights Antonio Tarver, 31-6-1, 22 KOs, and Steve Cunningham, 28-7-1, 13 KOs, fought to a split decision draw. The fight that both fighters had called must win, wound up being a tactical contest with both boxers fighting cautiously.

Cunningham built an early lead with his busier style, but Tarver began closing the gap with his heavier punches. Tarver didn’t throw consistently, but when he landed his punches counted. Once Cunningham felt Tarver’s power, he proceeded with caution and allowed Tarver to stay close on the scorecards. Tarver conserved energy every chance he could and just waited for an opening he could exploit. The result was a slow-moving fight that paled in comparison to the thrilling co-feature between Glowacki and Huck. (more…)

Shocker: Glowacki KOs Huck in eleven

By Matt Richardson at ringside
Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment

It took eight and a half months but boxing fans finally have a clear fight of the year.

And it was in the cruiserweight division.

In a dramatic and violent fight in which both fighters hit the canvas, Poland’s Krzysztof Glowacki upset long-reigning WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck by knocking him out in the eleventh round at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The fight was the co-featured bout to the Antonio Tarver-Steve Cunningham main event on the “Premier Boxing Champions” card on Spike on Friday night.

Huck (38-3-1, 26 KO’s) was attempting to break the record for the most consecutive cruiserweight title defenses in boxing history (14) but his opponent wasn’t so agreeable. Glowacki (25-0, 16 KO’s), fighting in front of a passionate, pro-Polish crowd, hurt Huck in the first and knocked him down once in the eleventh before stopping him along the ropes in the same round. It was the fight in between Glowacki’s early and late success, however, which showed both men’s heart and courage. Glowacki was almost knocked out himself in the sixth after getting drilled with a hard left hook that left him staring up from the canvas.

It was that type of fight. (more…)

In the final walkout bout, heavyweight Travis Kauffman, 29-1, 21 KOs, knocked out Richard Carmack, 13-7, 11 KOs at 2:07 of round one.

Fringe heavyweight contender Artur Szpilka stopped Yasmany Consuegra in the second round of a swing bout after the Tarver-Cunningham main event. Szpilka hurt Consuegra early and Consuegra began complaining of a knee injury. That became worse after he was dropped in the second round. He rose and elected to fight on but when he got to his corner the fight was called off before the third round could begin. Szpilka, who has only lost once, to Bryant Jennings, is now 20-1 with 14 wins by knockout. Consuegra is now 17-2 with 14.

Unbeaten middleweight Maciej Sulecki barely broke a sweat, stopping Jose Rodriguez in the first round. Sulecki, fighting in front of a loyal, pro-Polish crowd dropped Rodriguez quickly before referee Harvey Dock called a halt at the 2:07 mark. Sulecki is now 21-0 with six knockouts; Rodriguez is 21-9 with 13. (more…)

Berto: I’m coming to shock the world

Photos: Stephanie Trapp

What a difference two years can make. On this date in 2013, two-time world champion Andre Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) underwent surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right shoulder. Two years later, he’s feeling stronger than ever and enjoys a new appreciation for the speed, power and athleticism he’s been blessed with. Berto plans to showcase all of those attributes in his Saturday, September 12 PPV showdown with pound-for-pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

“It gave me a completely different perspective; I really thought my career might be over,” Berto said. “I told myself that when I get back in there, I was going to go all in.”

Berto suffered the injury early in his fight with Jesus Soto Karass but in his signature style, he battled until the final round of the 12-round affair. Dr. Neal ElAttrache, a renowned orthopedic surgeon, performed Berto’s surgery and was impressed with his resilience once he discovered that the tendon was completely torn from top to bottom.

Junior Wright added to Coney Island card

Recent cruiserweight title challenger Junior Wright (13-1-1, 11 KOs) has been added to promoter Dmitriy Salita’s boxing show August 25 at MCU Park in Brooklyn’s Coney Island. Wright is coming off an eighth round KO loss against Rahkim Chakhkiev three months ago in Russia and is aching to get back on the winning track. “I think I am now a better fighter because I learned a lot from this, going to another country and competing. I picked up a lot, more experience from there,” said Wright, who will meet Harvey Jolly (14-22-1, 7 KOs) in a bout scheduled for 6-rounds. “New York is great man, I just feel like this another opportunity to show I am world class,” he said.

Salita added “Junior now has had the experience of fighting for a world title on the big stage and has learned a tremendous amount. He is very motivated to impress fans once again and climb back up the ladder to challenge the best in the division. A world-class fighter like Junior Wright will bring the excitement to the Brooklyn Cyclones stadium in Coney Island on August 25th!”

Browne KOs 7’1 Long in round nine

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBA #3 Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne (23-0, 20 KOs) stopped Long (16-19, 14 KOs) in round nine of a scheduled ten round bout at the Melbourne Pavilion, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on Friday. The seven-foot American proved to be awkward opponent for the 6 foot 5 inch Australian, but he found the range and Long was dropped in round eight and was unsteady on his legs but survived until the bell. In round nine, a left hook from Browne dropped Long and the referee Tony Maretta called it off at 2:59. Browne said, “It was a great fight so thanks to Julius for taking the fight on short notice. I broke my thumb and that gave me problems.”

Former IBO 130lb world champion Will Tomlinson (25-2-3) outscored Adones Aguelo (24-12-2) over ten rounds by majority decision. Aguelo was the aggressor in all the rounds and had Tomlinson cut over his left eye and also bleeding from the nose, but at the conclusion scores were 95-95, 97-93, 97-94 in favour of the Australian.

Nietes makes US debut on Oct. 17

By Nick Giongco

Long-reigning Filipino star Donnie Nietes will make the eighth defense of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) light-flyweight diadem on Oct. 17 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. It will be ALA Boxing’s first foray in the US market after years of hard work. Michael Aldeguer, who heads ALA Boxing, said yesterday that he is conferring with the WBO as to the selection of Nietes’ next challenger.

“Somebody from the top 15 will be called to face Nietes,” said Aldeguer. He said Nietes will most probably put the WBO 108-lb title on the line against a Mexican slugger.

“We’ll know within the next two weeks who would it be (for Nietes),” said Aldeguer. “If it’s not a Mexican, we’ll pick a Latino.” (more…)

Andrade files appeal with WBO

Undefeated junior middleweight Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (21-0, 14 KOs) has filed an appeal regarding the recent decision of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) to strip him of his WBO world junior middleweight championship. In the letter to WBO president Francisco Valcarcel, Andrade claimed the WBO failed to offer him a mandatory opponent during the past seven months for him to defend his title against. Andrade’s appeal also mentions that the WBO sent a letter to him on January 23, 2015, which stated that the WBO would force a purse bid between WBO No. 1 challenger Jermell Charlo and Andrade, if the fight agreement wasn’t resolved within (30) days. However, the WBO did not force the purse bid, allowing Charlo to sign an agreement to fight Vanes Martirosyan, nearly 30 days after Andrade had signed his contract to fight Charlo.

A copy of the aforementioned fight contract, which Andrade signed on January 14, 2015 to fight Charlo for $300,000, was also included as evidence to support Andrade’s claim. Andrade stated that the signed contract proves that it was, in fact, Charlo’s team, not Andrade, that pulled out of the bout. (more…)

Cotto, Canelo Quick Quotes

By Karl Freitag

An international media conference call was held on Wednesday with Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez to announce their PPV super fight on November 21 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Miguel Cotto: “This fight is just another fight…For me, Canelo is a victory for my career. Being the best Puerto Rican fighter is not of my interest. I’m happy with my career.”

Freddie Roach: I don’t think Canelo is stronger than us and I don’t think that’s a factor in the fight. I think we’re stronger than him. I think we’re the better puncher and we’ll show that on fight night.

Canelo Alvarez: “This is a fight I’ve been craving and wanting so bad…I am very happy that we have managed this fight. I am very grateful to all the fans.”

Oscar de la Hoya: “Mark my words – the PPV cost will be a lot less than $100 and it’ll be worth every dollar…the fight is huge now. Obviously we recognized that in May Mayweather and Pacquiao was taking place and now that that fiasco is all over with we can focus on promoting the biggest fight in the history of the sport in November.”

Michael Yormark (Roc Nation): “We haven’t focused on the undercard, but Andre Ward is a consideration.”

Gavronski returns Saturday at the Emerald Queen Casino

By Ricardo Ibarra

This Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, hometown favorite Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski will square off with Ghanaian Laatekwei Hammond in the main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat 102. The popular Super Middleweight prospect will look to add his fifth consecutive win at the venue, having headlined there in his last four fights.

In the last year, Gavronski has rebuilt his career momentum, rebounding from his lone defeat as a pro to top Middleweight contender Tureano Johnson in July of last year. Since that loss Gavronski has won four straight fights, stopping his last two opponents inside the distance. In his most recent outing, Gavronski (18-1-1, 12 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over former foe Tyrone Hendrix. The two had fought previously to a majority draw in April of 2010, but in the return bout Gavronski punctuated the rivalry with an emphatic knockout. Gavronski is on the cusp of a major opportunity and a win on Saturday would set him up for a possible fight against undefeated former two-time Dominican Olympian Juan Ubaldo Cabrera on a Showtime televised card in Las Vegas later in the month.
