Statistics of Japan’s Boxing Industry

By Joe Koizumi

By any coincidence this reporter happened to begin summarizing data of our Japanese boxing fraternity for last four years from 2008 on the first anniversary of the unforgettably horrible earthquake and tsunami that miserably killed some 20,000 people. Yours truly, on behalf of our boxing world, hereby express our great thanks for your warm support to our sorrowful victims after the disaster.

Viewing a table attached downstairs, we realize that our licensed professional boxers are decreasing year after year since 2008. We had 2,820 boxers licensed by the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC) in 2008, but the number is reducing to 2,670, 2,633 and 2,538. We, however, still have more than 2,500 boxers licensed so that they actively fight in the paid ranks. Some 150 foreign boxers from Asia (Thailand, Philippines, Korea, Indonesia, etc.) and other countries (Mexico, Venezuela etc.) have been licensed by our commission for international matchups every year.

Ortiz runs full marathon

Former welterweight champion Vicious Victor Ortiz, 25, completed the Los Angeles Marathon today running a personal best 3 hours 27 minutes and finishing in the top third of an estimated 30,000 starters. Ortiz is scheduled to fight former welterweight Champion Andre Berto on June 23. “It was such great fun running with all these world class marathoners,” Ortiz exclaimed. “I know that made me run better than ever. In many way it couldn’t be any more different that boxing. I mean nobody is punching you in the nose, the gut, the kidneys and on the chin and up the side of your head,” Ortiz explained.

“But in other ways doing this very much relates to boxing. Conditioning the lungs, the legs and building endurance. That’s why all fighters do road work. But 26-plus miles is something else. I won’t say going 12/3 minute championship rounds is easy Anything but. But Berto must know how prepared I’ll be when he hears I ran this well three months before our fight. I’m very happy.” (more…)

Duran’s trainer “Plomo” Espinosa passes

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Nestor “Plomo” Espinosa the longtime trainer of ring legend Roberto “Mano de Piedra” Duran, has passed away in Panama at the age of 81. Espinosa started with Duran at eight years of age and was in his corner during each of Duran’s four world title victories in different weight categories. He began his career as a trainer in 1956 and worked with world champions Luis Ibarra, Wilfredo Gomez, Alfonso Lopez and Jorge Lujan among others, but will be remembered most for his 40 year association with Duran. Duran also used other trainers like Ray Arcel, Freddie Brown and others, but always, from his first fight until his last, Espinosa was in his corner.

Sergio: I knew he would fall

World middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez was losing on all three scorecards after a controversial knockdown in round seven before scoring a dramatic come-from-behind knockout of Matthew “Mack the Knife” Macklin Saturday night in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. “It was a complicated fight,” Martinez admitted. “He wasn’t open on defense. I knew it was a 12-round fight. I knew that it was only a matter of time. It’s like chopping a tree – little by little – and I knew he would fall.”

“Buddy stopped the fight,” stated Macklin. “I wanted to continue.” Macklin’s co-promoter Brian Peters said “We called it in the corner. There are more days.”

Welterweight Omar Chavez (28-1, 20 KOs) won by TKO when Colombian Emilio Julio (20-8-2, 13 KOs) didn’t come out for round nine on Saturday night at the Palenque de Gallos in Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. Chavez was returning to the ring for the first time after his first career loss last December against compatriot Jorge “Maromerito” Paez Jr. “I felt very good,” said Chavez. “A little rough in taking care of my opponent, but all went well. We’re back on the road to success and the people of Culiacan were satisfied with my performance and that motivates me and makes me more eager.”

WBA light flyweight world champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (26-0, 16 KOs) won by first round KO over Manuel “Menny” Jiménez (11-3-1, 7 KOs) in a non-title fight. Jimenez simply took a knee and was counted out by referee Alvaro Garcia at 2:58. The Culiacan Boxing Commission and Zanfer Promotions retained the purse of Jimenez. more photos

Kell Brook: I would smash Amir

Photo: Lawrence Lustig

Welterweight Kell Brook says he’s ready to fight countryman Amir Khan after producing a dominant display to beat Matthew Hatton at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield on Saturday night. “No-one can touch me domestically now – I’ve proved I’m ready for a world title push,” said Brook. “I want Khan now. He thought Matthew was the better fighter and I proved him wrong, and I would smash Amir.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn added, “”We are ready for Khan now. Money talks and I am ready to arrange that. If this fight doesn’t happen then it’s them who have bottled it. We’d sell bundles and bundles of tickets for the fight – it would bring back pay-per-view for Sky Sports and both fighters would make a fortune. So the question is – will Amir take it?”

Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KOs) scored a spectacular eleventh round TKO over Matthew Macklin (28-4, 19 KOs) on Saturday night before a sellout crowd inside The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In a much closer fight than people expected, Martinez recovered from a seventh round knockdown to outbox Macklin down the stretch before blasting Macklin to the deck twice in round eleven. Macklin’s corner stopped the fight after the round. Macklin was a bloody mess at the end. Martinez was leading by one point on two cards and behind by three points on the third card entering the eleventh round.

Unbeaten super middleweight Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (20-0, 14 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Don “Da Bomb” George (22-2-1, 19 KOs).

Candelo (32-11-4, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the Pharr Convention Center, Pharr, Texas.

Lots of heavy exchanges over the last three rounds with the hometown favorite getting the edge on the cards.

Unbeaten jr welterweight Carlos Molina (16-0-1, 7 KOs) topped Angino Perez (11-4, 9 KOs) over ten rounds by unanimous decision. Molina hurt Perez in the first round but had to go the full distance to win by scores of 98-92, 98-92, 97-93.

Usmanee hands Howard first defeat

By Dave Spencer/Fightnews Canada

In a clash of unbeaten lightweights, Arash Usmanee (18-0, 8 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over local favorite Chris Howard (14-1-1, 6 KOs) on Saturday night at the Grand Ballroom in Atlanta, Georgia. Usmanee did more to earn a 98-92, 100-90 and 98-92 verdict. Usmanee claimed the WBC Continental Americas belt with the win.

Usmanee has fought at the 135 pound level before, but he claims this is the first time he has faced a legit lightweight, a much bigger heavier boxer who comes down to make the weight. “He cut down quite a bit,” Usmanee told Fightnews figuring Howard normally walks around close to the 150 pound mark. “He was a tough guy who tried to muscle me, but I used my speed and skill to control things.” (more…)

Brook was too fast, accurate and powerful for Hatton, whom he knocked down in round nine and outlanded at a 3:1 rate. Scores were 118-109, 119-108, 119-107.

In a major upset, little known Kerry Hope (17-3, 1 KO) won a twelve round majority decision over previously unbeaten European middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa (26-1, 19 KOs). It was a much closer fight than anyone expected, the big-punching Proksa suffered a cut over his left eye from a second round accidental head clash and seemed to be running out of gas in the middle rounds. Hope was deducted a point for an intentional headbutt at the end of round eight. Hope was fresher down the stretch and won on two cards 115-112, 114-113. The third card was 114-114. (more…)

Zepeda TKOs De La Torre

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

Welterweight Jose Zepeda made quick work of overweight Sergio De La Torre late Friday night, stopping him in the second round of a scheduled six round bout at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, CA. Despite being outweighed by seven pounds, Zepeda was in control over the shorter De La Torre throughout the fight. Zepeda, who is trained by Roberto Alcazar, was busier and landing the telling blows as De La Torre attempted to bob and weave and hold when necessary. In the second round, Zepeda dropped De La Torre with a left-right combination to the head. After De La Torre stood up, he was knocked down again from a left hook by Zepeda. Although De La Torre got up, his corner threw in the towel, prompting referee Zac young to stop the bout at 1:34.

It was an explosive night of knockouts at the Ameristar Casino and Spa in St. Charles, MO, Friday night as Steve Smith’s Rumble Time Promotions put on their “March Mayhem” contests. Leon “III Generation” Spinks (1-0, 1 KO), grandson of former heavyweight champion, Leon Spinks, convincingly won his professional debut, quickly dispatching of Casey Crane (0-4) in just 1:41, knocking him out with a beautiful right hook.

Spinks worked his jab early , landing it as he started to get into a rhythm. Crane tried to mix it up with Spinks, but as “III Generation” later said, “I was trying to spin him, and doing what I had to do to get the W!” Spinks was able to land a 3 punch combination followed by a four punch combo and Crane was immediately overwhelmed by Spinks’ speed. Coming off of a third combo, Spinks landed the right hook, and Crane dropped to the canvas. Crane got to his feet, but as he was doing so, he told referee Mike England that he would not continue, giving the latest family member in the Spinks Jinx tradition his first win. (more…)

Fonfara brutalizes Mitchell

24-year-old light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (21-2, 12 KOs) needed only three rounds during “Fight Night 22” in Chicago, to accomplish two important feats. The “Polish Prince” both won the IBO/USBO light heavyweight belt and prolonged his streak to nine consecutive wins by knockout. This time, on the receiving end of Fonfara’s KO power was former super middleweight champ Byron Mitchell (29-10, 22 KOs), who should understand after this fight that besides bringing a wealth of experience, he can’t compete anymore with stronger and younger fighters like Fonfara. Mitchell was down twice in the first round and one more time in the round three before trainer George Hernandez decided that Byron had received enough punishment for one night. (more…)

No set intermissions and if the main-go was sleep-inducing with near-contender Darryl Cunningham picking and chipping to an eight-round shutout over opponent Vance Garvey, the bout was followed by a wild swinging affair by two novice crusiserweights that had loser James Guy bounding off the ropes like he was drunk on a trampoline before getting stopped by sheer exhaustion more than the 1-2 Demetrius Banks.

Unfortunately for the winner, on Thursday he weighed in over the division limit forfeiting his WBO Intercontinental Youth title on the scale.

“It surprised me when he didn’t try to box because he is a pretty tall guy,” said Figueroa. “Once he started throwing power shots with me, I knew it wouldn’t last long. He had decent power so I was careful of his wild shots but I never thought the fight would make it past the third or fourth round.” more photos
