Mia St. John: “Final Victory” will be the final fight

By Steve Cummings
Photos: Mary Ann Owen

Mia St. John is ready for her rematch this Tuesday (August 14th) with Christy Martin. While she surprised many boxing observers in their first fight (December 6, 2002) just by going the distance, she expects to come away with the win this time and the WBC light middleweight title. The card is appropriately title “The Final Victory” because St. John wants to walk away with the belt and retire from sport.

The “Final Victory” takes place at Table Mountain Casino in Friant, CA and is being promoted by Roy Englebrecht.

When St. John (46-11-2, 18 KOs) and Martin (49-6-3, 31 KOs) first fought in December of 2002, Mia was a huge underdog and thought by many to be in for a rough night at the hands of the hard-punching Coal Miner’s Daughter. St. John displayed improved boxing skills that night and went the distance, losing a unanimous decision by scores of 97-93, 97-93 and 99-91. (more…)

New & Improved Grabriel Rosado is one fight away

Story and photos by John DiSanto – Philly Boxing History (.com)

This past January, North Philly junior middleweight Gabriel Rosado seemed to turn a corner in his career development. All of a sudden, he was a killer in the ring and looked like sure bet to become a champion. The new plateau came in his head-turning knockout performance against battle-tough Jesus Soto Karass on January 21st. Rosado became the first man to halt the durable Mexican, and he did it before a cheering hometown crowd at ringside and a national television audience watching at home on the NBC Sports Network.

The Gabriel Rosado who bullied and disposed of Soto Karass in just five rounds that night was clearly a new version of the popular Philly fighter. Rosado had shown glimpses of real promise over the prior six years of his professional boxing career, but nothing like this. He was suddenly a bona fide contender. (more…)

Kikuchi defeats WBA #12 Manakane

By Joe Koizumi

Lanky Japanese jabber, OPBF#4 super-bantam Eita Kikuchi (14-2-4, 6 KOs), 119.5, decked an important victory when he kept outjabbing WBA#12 bantam Noldi Manakane (24-12-1, 15 KOs), Indonesia, 119.5, all the way and earned a unanimous decision (96-94, 96-95 and 99-94) over ten furious rounds on Sunday in Kobe, Japan. Manakane had failed to win the WBA bantam belt from Koki Kameda, losing a debatable decision in Yokohama last April. The free-swinging Indonesian attempted to catch the much taller Japanese with roundhouse lefts and rights, which were missing the elusive target. Kikuchi exclusively aimed at the midsection, winning the third through fifth rounds. Visibly fading with his absorption of Kikuchi’s body shots, Manakane changed his strategy to counterpunching with his back to the ropes in the second half. The Indonesian veteran dominated the seventh, but couldn’t show his superior power with his fatigue in the last three sessions. (more…)

Piedra attempted to get up but was on very unsteady legs and holding himself up with the ropes, prompting referee Jack Rees to wave an end to the scheduled eight round light heavyweight main event at 1:23 of the second round.

In semi main event action, a scheduled 8 round light heavyweight contest, Anatolia Dudchenko (15-2, 10KO) went the distance, a career long eight rounds, to win a unanimous decision victory over stepping stone Alfredo Contreras (11-14-3, 4KO). All three judges scored the bout 80-72.

In a special attraction, a scheduled 4 round light welterweight bout, Leon Spinks III (2-0-1, 1KO) seemed to win every round, but had to settle for a majority draw, against Eduardo Melendez (0-2-1). Spinks, the grandson of former heavyweight champion, Leon Slinks, was rightfully irate with the decision. Judge Lou Motet scored the bout for Spinks 39-37 but was overruled by Judges Carla Caiz and Barry Druxman, who both scored the bout 38-38. photos

Although Japan has produced many professional world champs, we thought the amateur boxing should be a different sport where it is tremendously difficult to win a medal.
