Adonis Stevenson Update

“Adonis Stevenson injured his left hand in sparring last Friday,” said promoter Yvon Michel, President of Groupe Yvon Michel. “The next day he went to see a doctor who diagnosed a severe bruise and major swelling. Adonis was not able to close his hand and make a fist. Treatments were done in hopes of improvement but there was not enough progress and under the doctor’s advice it was decided to pull Adonis out of his fight [on Friday night against Don “Da Bomb” George].”

According to Michel, Stevenson is now in Montreal receiving treatment. The IBF super middleweight title eliminator will be rescheduled for early this fall. Fightnews.com has learned that an October 27 HBO date is being looked at.

Christy Martin returns to the ring tonight at Table Mountain Casino in Friant, CA after a layoff of 14 months in search of her 50th career victory. She will see a familiar face when she climbs through the ropes, one of the few boxers whose credentials are similar to her own: Mia St. John. Martin scored an unanimous decision over St. John on December 6, 2002.

Fast forward ten years: Martin and St. John will fight tonight for the vacant WBC jr welterweight title in the main event of the “Final Victory!” Martin says that she is “99.9% sure” it will be her last fight. With a record of 49 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses with 31 knockouts, Christy has done just about everything a boxer can do, male or female, since turning pro September 9, 1989 with a five-round draw against Angela Buchanan.

New opponent for Donovan George

By Johnny B’

Luck may be changing for Carlos Molina and fellow Chicagoan Don “Da Bomb” George. Donovan George was ready to go against fellow super middleweight Adonis “Superman” Stevenson, but it looks like “Superman” is not invincible, as he had to pull out of the bout with a alleged hand injury. “Da Bomb” (22-2-1, 19 KOs) will now face late sub Dioniso Miranda from Barranquilla, Columbia (21-7-2, 18 KOs) in a bout scheduled for ten.

The new main event will be hard luck Chicago light middleweight Carlos Molina (19-5-2, 6 KOs) matched with Miami Florida’s Damian Frias (19-4-1, 10 KOs) also scheduled for ten rounds.

Pacman to train at Wild Card

By Nick Giongco

Manny Pacquiao will set up his training camp at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles as soon as he gets back from the multi-city promotional tour for his Nov. 10 fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. “From the press tour, Manny will stay in the US and begin training,” Arum, who left for the US over the weekend, told Fightnews. Arum said the initial leg of the press tour will be on Sept. 4 in Los Angeles. The succeeding stops will depend on the choice of opponent. Three fighters are being eyed to face Pacquiao: American Tim Bradley, Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez and Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto. If Pacquiao ends up picking Marquez, there will be a stop in Mexico City and if it’s Cotto, the tour will travel to the Puerto Rican capital of San Juan. Arum met with Pacquiao last week and the two discussed what’s down the road for the Filipino star, who is aching to bounce back from the controversial 12-round split decision to Bradley last June. There have been reports that Pacquiao is trying to delay his decision because of the possibility that a fight with Floyd Mayweather can be made for early-2013. But if an agreement cannot be reached, Pacquiao will have no other choice but to name his next foe within the next few days. Pacquiao, 33, had used Baguio City, a high-altitude training camp north of Manila, as his headquarters the last few fights.

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

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

Boxing Result

Cayo batters De Jesus

By Robert Coster

IBF#13 Jr Welterweight Victor Cayo took a significant step in his attempt to redeem his career by disposing of his unbeaten but untested countryman Julio De Jesus in just three rounds. Cayo (29-3, 21 KOs) proved that he was a notch above the hard-punching but crude De Jesus (15-1,14 KOs), knocking him down twice in the first round and once more in the third round, forcing referee Oscar Perez to stop the one-sided drubbing. In a companion fight, IBF super-batamweight champion Kathy Wilson Castillo kept her title with a clear-cut decision over Cristal Hoy of the Philippines. The card was held at the Carlos (Teo) Cruz Coliseum and co-promoted by Manguita Boxing and Sampson Boxing Promotion.
