Usmanee starts busy summer

Undefeated fighter eyes title shot for fall

By Dave Spencer

Arash Usmanee (18-0 8KO) was due for a final exam this month; instead the undefeated super-featherweight will be going to summer school starting this Friday as he faces off against Cristian Faccio (21-7 14KO) in his boxing home of Montreal. “Adrian Bronner called us for a fight in May for the world title,” Usmanee tells FightNews, “But I had just come back for training, and the timing just wasn’t right.” Adding to the bad timing was the fact that the Red Deer Alberta injured his right hand in his last fight in March, a ten round decision over undefeated Chris Howard in Atlanta.

“We want to see how it reacts and whether or not he has a good fight before moving on,” said his manager Doug Berneche who built a four part summer series around the 30 year-old fighter who meets former world title challenger Cristian Faccio this Friday. “If everything goes well, Arash will defend his WBC (Continental Americas) belt in June.” (More)

“Bad” Chad Dawson (31-1, 17 KOs) got the redemption he craved after taking Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins’ (52-6-2, 32 KOs) WBC light heavyweight title by majority decision in front of a crowd of 7,705 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. Their bout was a rematch of a controversial “no contest” fought last October in Los Angeles, CA. The scores were 117-111 (twice) and 114-114. In the co-feature, Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KOs) came back from a rocky opening round to stop Chazz “The Gentleman” Witherspoon (30-3, 22 KOs) in the third round of a scheduled twelve round bout, in what was a classic heavyweight slugfest. Mitchell took home the vacant NABO heavyweight belt. The card was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Gary Shaw Productions. (More)

More on Golovkin-Fuchigami

WBA Middleweight Champion Gennady Golovkin and his noted trainer Abel Sanchez have arrived in Kiev, Ukraine where Golovkin will defend his world title on Saturday, May 12th against Japanese champion Makoto Fuchigami at the Ice Palace “Terminal.” Known for his devastating knockouts and fan friendly style, the undefeated Golovkin sports a record of 22-0-0 with nineteen stoppages while the southpaw Fuchigami, 19-6-0 (10KO’s), enters the twelve round clash with a nine bout-winning streak, eight by knockout.

A native of Kazakhstan and living in Stuttgart, Germany, Golovkin returns to action following a brutal first round knockout of Philadelphia based contender Lajuan Simon on December 9th in Dusseldorf, Germany. Simon had not been previously stopped over his eight-year career, including a twelve round war with then world champion Arthur Abraham and going the distance with Sebastian Sylvester, both in 2009.

It’s the final stretch of Floyd Mayweather’s career and the 35-year-old is determined to give you the most exciting fights of his career — whether one of those fights ends up being against Manny Pacquiao or not. On May 5th (or Cinco De Mayweather) the five-division world champion will face Miguel Cotto in a junior middleweight tilt that the man known as “Money” says won’t see the final bell. It’s part of Mayweather’s plan to be more active and give fight fans as much “Money” Mayweather as they can handle. With Mayweather coming off of a September knockout victory over Victor Ortiz, he made it a point to return to the ring as soon as possible. Rather than take the year long layoff, Mayweather worked quickly to secure the date with Cotto. Let him tell it, by getting back into training camp faster he’s able to keep his swords sharp.

End of the Road for Hopkins?

By Matt Richardson

In the end, there were no miracles left for Bernard Hopkins. No age-defying win. No proving the critics wrong. On Saturday night in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the 47-year old Hopkins finally did what the experts have been predicting for almost his whole career – he lost (legitimately) to a younger opponent. In the main event of a card televised by HBO, Hopkins lost his light heavyweight title to Chad Dawson by majority decision.

But there was no gold watch for the boxer, either. Because even though it now seems like the road for the legendary fighter has finally come to an end, no one is willing to completely count him out either. “It all depends what the motivation is,” Hopkins (52-6-2, 32 KO’s) said at the post-fight press conference regarding his future in the sport.

Malignaggi dethrones Senchenko

Magic Man scores ninth round TKO

Former world 140lb champion Paulie Malignaggi (31-4, 7 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over previously unbeaten WBA welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko (32-1, 21 KOs) to claim the WBA 147lb belt on Sunday night at the Donbass Arena in Donetsk, Ukraine. Good start for the shorter Malignaggi who had a big edge in handspeed and usually beat Senchenko to the punch. The champion started to come on in round four and it seemed the tide was turning. However, by round seven, Paulie’s jabs had developed a mouse under Senchenko’s left eye and “The Magic Man” began to target that eye causing it to swell dramatically. Referee Steve Smoger took a long look at the damaged eye in round eight and the eye was completely closed at the start of round nine. After Malignaggi rocked Senchenko with a big right hand he never saw coming, Smoger waved it off to save the Ukrainian from further damage. Time was 1:10. Malignaggi is now expected to defend his new belt on October 20 at the new Barclays Center in his native Brooklyn. (more…)

April 28, Toledo, Ohio: Inactive for a year-and-a-half, former WBO World Junior-Middleweight Champ Bronco McKart showed that age 41 that while he may be several years removed as a serious contender for the upper level world belts, he is still in excellent condition; he was pressed for twelve full rounds by a very determined Jose Medina. This main go was featured, topping a seven-bout card in the beautiful new building in downtown Toledo, the Huntington Center, a structure primarily used for Toledo’s minor league hockey team, the Walleye. The handsome venue, which contains amenity accommodations for high-rollers, is ideal for modern age boxing, affording a more intimate atmosphere appropriate to a sport that can get “lost” in the capaciousness of such an stadium as Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena.

Upset in NM: Maldonado TKO’d by Carcamo

Ringside by Gerardo Martinez
Photo by Lu Jackson 

What was supposed to be a homecoming for formerly undefeated Fidel “The Atrisco Kid” Maldonado (13-1, 11 KOs) turned out to be a nightmare – and a first loss. The Telefutura-televised, Golden Boy and Golden Girl-promoted card from the Santa Ana Star Casino in Bernalillo, N.M., saw Maldonado lose his WBC lightweight youth belt to unheralded Mexican Fernando Carcamo (10-3, 7 KOs). Maldonado was floored in round one by a right uppercut and, in the second, a short right hand by Carcamo dropped the hometown favorite a second time. When the fight resumed, Carcamo pounded Maldonado with a big left, prompting the ref to stop the fight at 1:10. In the co-main event, Albuquerque welterweight “Hurricane” Hector Munoz (20-7-1, 13 KO’s) forced John Revish (9-6-2, 8 KOs) to quit halfway through the third round. Backed by former 5-time champ Johnny Tapia in his corner, Munoz forced the action, overpowering his opponent until the ref waved it off at 1:30.

In other results: Albuquerque flyweight Brandi Montoya (3-2) avenged an earlier loss from Santa Fe’s Natalie Roy (3-1, 1 KO) with a six-round unanimous decision, scores of 60-54 twice, and 59-55. In a crosstown rival match between Albuquerque super middleweights, Jesus Correa (1-0) got the unanimous nod over Charles “The Beast” Alderete (1-2) with scores of 40-36 x 2 and 39-37. In a four-round lightweight bout, Albuquerque’s Yorden Hernandez (2-0) outboxed Roswell’s John “Smiley” Herrera (1-3-1) with a shutout 40-36 x 3 score. In a female bout at feather, Albuquerque’s Heather Jo Clark (1-0) was successful in her pro debut taking a split decision win over Farmington’s Chavira “Viper” Jack (1-2), scores of 39-37 across the board.

Dawson dethrones Hopkins

In a grudge rematch, former world champion “Bad” Chad Dawson (31-1, 17 KOs) was too young, too fast and too strong for 47-year-old WBC light heavyweight world champion Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins (52-6-2, 32 KOs) and took a twelve round majority decision in a fight that never reached any heights on Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. After their no-decision last October, Hopkins came out wrestling and clinching in classic Hopkins fashion. Dawson was cut on the side of his left eye by a headbutt in round four. Dawson was the aggressor and as the fight progressed he often outworked the future Hall of Famer. Dawson was cut over the right eye by a punch in round eight. Hopkins tried a tackle in round eleven, but Dawson never really let Hopkins back in the fight. Scores were 117-111, 117-111, 114-114.

In his post fight comments, Dawson called out super middleweight champion Andre Ward at light heavyweight or a catchweight. Hopkins refused to give an interview in the ring after the fight.

Highly regarded unbeaten American heavyweight hope Seth “Mayhem” Mitchell (25-0-1, 19 KOs) and “The Gentleman “Chazz Witherspoon (30-3, 22 KOs) for the vacant NABO heavyweight title. Witherspoon battered the WBO #6 Mitchell in round one, but Mitchell came back strong in round two and knocked down Witherspoon in round three. Referee Randy Neumann waved it off shortly after.

Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez said after the fight that he felt that he was fighting at home for the first time in a long time. He sure gave those fans in attendance at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA a lot to cheer about. Gonzalez dropped voluntary challenger Ramon Garcia twice in the fourth round, the final one prompting the referee to stop the fight in the fourth round before a pro-Gonzalez crowd on Saturday night.

Gonzalez returned to the ring after having fought just six weeks ago at the Palenque de Gallos in Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. In that fight, he knocked out Manuel Jimenez with a body shot in the first round of a scheduled 10 round bout.

Despite entering the fight with Gonzalez having lost in two out of his last three outings, Saturday night marked the seventh time in a row Garcia was fighting in a world title bout. Prior to facing Gonzalez, Garcia lost to Donnie Nietes by unanimous decision, losing the WBO world title belt he had won with a fourth round knockout over Jesus Geles last April. (more…)

The 12-round championship bout, which is presented by Union Boxing Promotion in association with Golden Boy Promotions, will air live on Integrated Sports Pay-Per-View in the United States beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT. The suggested retail price of the four-bout card is $29.95. (more…)
