Cruz gets redemption

Postfight coverage of UFC 132

Story by Andreas Hale

The taste of revenge must be sweet for Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. For four years, Cruz waited to get another shot at Urijah Faber. After their initial clash back when the two were featherweights and Faber was champion, Cruz lie a defeated man for the first time. Not knowing whether or not he’d ever get another chance at Faber, he dropped down to the bantamweight division and went on a tear through the division and won eight fights in a row while claiming the then-WEC bantamweight title in the process. After years of jawing at one another, Cruz got his shot at redemption on Saturday night and avenged his loss against Faber in front of 12,497 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena at UFC 132. . .

Wlad: Go back to cruisers Haye

By Karl Freitag
Photos: Public Address/Stefan Hoyer

“This was a lesson, unfortunately without a KO, however I believe he has got enough of a beating to understand that there is nothing for him at heavyweight,” said WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko of vanquished ex-WBA titleholder David Haye. “He’s not cut from the same cloth. He should go back to cruiserweight.”

As for Haye’s claim that a broken toe contributed to his lackluster performance, Wlad stated, “This is just a cheap excuse. He should simply accept his defeat. That’s better. There were fights where I’ve broken my hand and I didn’t say a word about it. In the end, everybody gets the place in life that they earn, and the result of the fight speaks for itself.”

Haye, however, stated he wants to do it again. “I’d love him to give me a rematch,” Haye told reporters “He said he can knock me out and I’d love him to give it a go. I think it would be interesting. I think I hurt him more than he hurt me but that’s boxing. I’d love to knock him out but it wasn’t happening in there for me, unfortunately. I’m gutted I wasn’t able to do what I needed to do out there.”

Klitschko stated that Haye doesn’t really want a rematch and any rematch talk from Haye is due to pressure from reporters. “If there is a rematch, I will definitely knock him out,” promised Wlad.

Sosa gets KO1; Pongsaklek next

Report & Photos by Pepe Rodriguez/WBC

WBC mandatory flyweight title challenger Edgar Sosa (43-6, 26 KOs) needed just one round to dispatch Julio Paz (12-2, 4 KOs) on Saturday night at the Plaza De Toros El Paseo in San Luis Potosi, San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Sosa was too strong for the Uruguayan who went to the deck after a devastating body attack that ended with a right to the face.

The 112 lb international monarch said his performance was dedicated to the public of San Luis Potosi, who supported him and his grandma, who is ill, and to his representative Jacques Deschamps, who always has supported him. “He could not come but his soul is with us,” said Sosa. Next up the ex-WBC light flyweight champ is a shot at two-term WBC world flyweight champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam.

In a WBC super bantamweight eliminator, #2 rated South African Simpiwe Vetyeka (23-1, 13 KOs) snatched the WBC international belt of WBC #1 rated Giovanni “El Ruso” Caro (22-9-4, 17 KOs) with a unanimous decision.

In female boxing, Esmeralda Moreno successfully defended her WBC light flyweight belt for the second time against Mary Salinas from McAllen Texas.

Lightweight “Son of the Legend” Carlos Zarate Jr. (13-0, 8 KOs) dropped Adrian Rodriquez (8-4) twice in another one round destruction. Click here for more photos…

Barros edges Caballero

By Robert Coster

WBA featherweight champion Jonathan Victor Barros (33-1-1, 18 KOs) definitely benefited from the hometown advantage on Saturday night at the Polideportivo La Colonia in Junin, Mendoza, Argentina, winning a very debatable split decision over Celestino Caballero (34-4, 23 KOs) of Panama. Two knockdowns and constant aggression were not sufficient for the 35-year-old Caballero, in the eyes of the judges, to lift the crown from the local champion who was awarded a 114-112 (Sergio Caiz), 116-110 (Cesar Ramos) vote while judge Denny Nelson gave the nod to Caballero by 115-111. The local Argentinian TV commentators also saw Caballero the winner by the score of 115-112.

Klitschko defeats Haye

By Karl Freitag

The biggest heavyweight title fight in years wasn’t an instant classic as IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over cautious WBA champion David Haye (25-2, 23 KOs) on Saturday night at the Imtech Arena in Hamburg, Germany. In round one, Haye threw lots of power punches but didn’t land clean. Wlad landed some jabs but nothing hard. More connects in round two for both and things heated up further in round three. Haye landed a clean shot at the bell to end round four. Good combination by Klitschko in round five. Haye stayed mostly on the outside, occasionally jumping in with single shots. Klitschko pressed the action and was busier in every round. Klitschko was deducted a point by Geno Rodriguez for pushing down Haye in round eight, but took control down the stretch. Rodriguez gave Haye a count after he went down in the eleventh. Haye landed a hard shot in the twelfth, but Wlad came back. In the end, scores were 117-109, 118-108, 116-110.

Migaki keeps OPBF 135lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

WBC#6/WBA#7 lightweight Ryuji Migaki (17-2, 13 KOs), 134.5, Japan, barely kept his OPBF 135-pound belt as he put on a see-saw extravaganza with OPBF#3 compatriot Shoji Kawase (27-4-5, 17 KOs), 134.5, and finally knocked him out with a smashing left-right combination at 2:31 of the tenth round in a scheduled twelve-rounder on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

It was a gory affair as each sustained bad lacerations around the optics caused by the other’s furious attack. The OPBF open scoring system indicated the process on almost even terms: 38-38, 39-38 and 38-39 after the fourth; 77-76, 77-75 both for the defending champ Migaki, and 76-77 for Kawase after the eighth. Kawase threw more punches with less precision, while Migaki scored with a fewer but more accurate combinations to weaken the game challenger. The fatal tenth witnessed Migaki explode a solid one-two combo to the button of the taller Kawase, who fell down not to be able to beat the count of the referee Vinny Martin. (more…)

Announcement

Veteran ref Terry Smith passes

Courtesy Jim Jenkins, Sacramento Bee

Terry Smith, former attorney and Sacramento boxing referee who officated several world title fights in the U.S. and abroad, has died. A native of England, Smith succumbed after a long illness Wednesday at age 76. He began his ring career as an amateur boxer, winning a 156-pound national title in 1959 for Sacramento State when boxing was an intercollegiate sport. In 1960, he was an alternate on a then Cassius Clay-led U.S. Olympic team but never saw action and then had a brief pro career. An attorney for the Sacramento District Attorney’s office, Smith was highly-respected by peers as a referee and judge, but his expertise was tested in a 1987 fight in Sacramento. He braved an angry crowd after disqualifying hometown favorite Tony Lopez for throwing an extra punch after flattening an opponent. To his credit, Lopez never held a grudge and won the rematch by knockout en route to a world junior-lightweight title. “Terry made the right call against Tony but, gosh, that took guts,” said friend and fellow ref Jon Schorle, who was tutored by Smith. Private services are planned.
