By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Tyrieshia “Lady Tiga” Douglas of Washington, DC captured the vacant WIBA Bantamweight title tonight at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD Thursday night winning a 10-round unanimous decision over a very game Christina “Bullet” Ruiz of San Antonio, TX. Douglas controlled the early portion of the bout with solid right jabs and straight left hands. Douglas showed a lot of patience as she did not rush in to go for the knockout. At times, Ruiz landed some shots but Douglas did not seem to be in any real danger.

“She was bigger than me and I came up two weight classes to fight her,” Douglas told Fightnews after the contest. “There was no point in throwing unnecessary punches because one punch can change a fight. However, I was stronger than her in the fight.” (more…)

Results from Queens, NY

By Matt Richardson

Featherweights Angel Luna and Victor Serrano engaged in a back and forth battle on Friday night at the Five Star Banquet Hall in Long Island City, New York. Both men never stopped punching and landing over the six scheduled rounds and as such neither should have been deemed a loser.

Ultimately, they weren’t, as the six-round main event was ruled a draw on scores of 59-55 (for Luna) and 57-57 (twice). Luna (10-0-1, 7 KO’s) tried with everything he had to get rid of his opponent inside the distance. He continuously smashed him with shots to the body and rocked him with an uppercut in the final seconds of the first. He even hurt Serrano again in the second but Serrano (3-8, 1 KO) had a rock-hard chin and will and never crumpled. He often gave as well as he got and the fight often devolved into wild exchanges of hooks and body punches. Either both men have world-class chins or their punching power is seriously overstated. Regardless of which it is (or isn’t) it made for a fun fight in a night in which only one bout on the card ended early. (more…)

Pedraza beats Farenas in IBF eliminator

Unbeaten super featherweight Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (19-0, 12 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Michael Farenas (39-5-4, 31 KOs) in an IBF elimination bout on Friday night at the Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Pedraza was in command the whole way. With the win, Pedraza moves into the mandatory position to fight IBF world champion Rances Barthelemy (21-0, 12 KOs).

Pedraza got into a grove in the early rounds and mounted a sustainable lead as he used his superior boxing skills to pick apart Farenas who was coming forward. As the fight entered the middle rounds, Pedraza continued to box and use lateral movement to win rounds. Farenas had his moments as he landed a few big power shots, but nothing that would prevent Pedraza from executing his game plan. In the championship rounds Farenas came on strong, but it was too late as Pedraza ended strong to keep his lead intact. Scorecards read 117-111, 118-110 and 116-112, all in favor for Pedraza.

Vasquez demolishes Mosquera; Salka wins Steel City bragging rights

Unbeaten welterweight Sammy “The Who Can Mexican” Vasquez Jr. (18-0, 13 KOs) scored an explosive first round KO against Alberto “Metralleta” Mosquera (21-3-2, 14 KOs) on Friday night at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA. Body shots finished Mosquera at 2:35. Mosquera was down twice.

In a cross-town lightweight grudge match, local favorite “Lightning” Rod Salka (20-4, 3 KOs) won a bloody and brutal ten round unanimous decision over rival Monte Meza-Clay (36-4, 22 KOs). Both fighters went right at each other in round one. A Salka left hook opened up a bed cut over Meza-Clay’s right eye in round two. Meza-Clay was allowed to continue in round three where he was further busted up by Salka. Salka was cut over the left eye in round four. It went the full ten with Salka winning by scores of 98-92, 97-94, 99-91. Sala retains his WBC FECARBOX lightweight title.

In a junior middleweight bout, undefeated prospect Erickson “The Hammer” Lubin (8-0, 6 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over very tough veteran Norberto “Demonio” Gonzalez (20-6, 13 KOs). Gonzalez dropped Lubin in round one, but Lubin rebounded well and floored Gonzalez in round four. Lubin really abused Gonzalez over the last half of the fight. Scores were 78-73, 78-72, 78-72.

Kovalev returning in March 2015

Sergey Kovalev will return in March against an opponent to be named and a location to be determined. Speculation is he will fight IBF mandatory Nadjib Mohammedi, who was signed yesterday by Main Events. “He is going to fight again in March but it is too early to say who his opponent might be,” said promoter Kathy Duva. “I am going to sit down with Egis [Klimas] and then once we make the decision we will let you all know.”

Kovalev stated he is ready to fight anyone they put in front of him, but added that he would like to add the WBC title to his collection. “I haven’t cleaned up this division yet. I have a goal to get the WBC title.”

Finally, Kovalev’s advice for Bernard Hopkins? “My counsel for Bernard is that he needs to stop his career. He is already not young man and he lost to Kovalev not because of his age. He feels great, he feels good, he feels he is in good shape, and he feels young in his body. He can get a lot of wins against a lot of good fighters including [Adonis] Stevenson and other top ten fighters. It is not my job right now. It is his job. He is feeling very good. I think he needs to stop and give the opportunity to younger boxers to be fighting on the top stage.”

Ricky Hatton: Judges cost Rabchenko victory

Promoter Ricky Hatton has paid tribute to Anthony Mundine, but he still feels his fighter, Sergey Rabchenko, beat the Aussie veteran. Mundine picked up the WBC Silver light-middleweight crown with a contentious split decision verdict over the Belarusian in Melbourne on Wednesday night. It was a display that showed the 39-year-old still has a place among boxing’s elite, yet the scoring raised questions as Rabchenko appeared to outwork him for much of the fight and hurt him several times in the later rounds.

“It wasn’t the worst decision I’ve seen but no way did Sergey lose the fight,” Ricky, who is Rabchenko’s promoter as well as his trainer, said. “I felt Sergey won more of the rounds and he had a knockdown that wasn’t scored as well. Sergey shook Mundine to his boots and in no way did he throw Anthony to the canvas. He hit the floor due to the punches that were landed. (more…)

In front of local media and fans, Boxing Legend and head of Iron Mike Productions, Mike Tyson held court at the Final Press Conference for “The Pride of Pittsburgh II” set for Friday night, November 14 at CONSOL Energy Center. In great spirits Tyson jokingly asked each fighter to stop thanking him during their time at the podium, “Get the knockout, trust me I’ll come over and thank you tomorrow night.”

Tempers flared as each main event fighter, “Sensational” Sammy Vasquez Jr. and Antonio “Metraletta” Mosquera gave their takes on tomorrow night’s 10-round welterweight headliner with neither fighter backing down from the war of words.

Antonio Mosquera: “I will beat you right here in your hometown, in front of all your fans I will knock you out and show that you are not on my level. You’re only undefeated because you’ve been fighting bums. I will show no mercy tomorrow night and I will destroy you.”

Sammy Vasquez Jr: “You’ve been knocked out before and you’ll be knocked out again tomorrow night. I’ve stopped my last seven opponents and you’ll be the eighth in a row. Come and get it pal.”

The card will be televised on beIN Sport and webcast at www.ironmikeproductions.com at 9PM ET.
