WBC twinbill in Japan tomorrow

By Joe Koizumi

WBC super-feather champ Takahiro Aoh (21-2-1, 10 KOs), a Japanese southpaw, will put his belt on the line against unbeaten Italian Devis Boschiero (29-0-1, 14 KOs) tomorrow (Sunday) in Tokyo, Japan. It will be Aoh’s second defense since dethroning Vitali Tajbelt of Germany via unanimous nod last November. Aoh tipped the beam at the 130-pound class limit, while “Boom Boom” Boschiero 129.5, a half pound lighter than the champ.

The WBC bantam championship will be disputed by #1 Christian Esquivel (23-2, 17 KOs) , Mexico, and #2 Shinsuke Yamanaka (14-0-2, 10 KOs), Japan, over twelve rounds. Each scaled in at the 118-pound class limit. Since they are hard-punchers, there will be a good possibility that either will be victorious by a knockout or a stoppage without hearing the last gong of the final session. Yamanaka, a southpaw hard-hitter, has scored eight victories by knockout in a row and aims to extend his KO streak. (more…)

Q&A: Glen Johnson

Tonight on SHOWTIME at 9PM ET/PT

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

He is about as laid back as you can get without demanding a drug test. Glen Johnson was an oasis of calm Friday, quietly sitting backstage in a Quebec City suburban shopping mall after weighing in at 166.5 pounds and awaiting the glove selection process in advance of his IBF super-middleweight bout with Lucian Bute. While the champion was whisked in and out quickly with a stealth security squad, Johnson remained and obliged fans with pictures and autographs. Fightnews was able to ask the veteran fighter his thoughts going into what will be his 11th championship fight. (more…)

Esquivias edges Beltran

By Francisco Salazar

In his most significant bout to date, super bantamweight Efrain Esquivias won a hard-fought 10 round split decision over former world title challenger Fernando Beltran on Friday night at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California. A notorious slow starter, Esquivias was able to get on track, switching from conventional to southpaw and countering Beltran to the head. The southpaw Beltran (35-7-1, 19 KO’s) was able to land with left hands to the head and body during the middle rounds. However, Esquivias (15-0, 9 KO’s) was able to swing momentum his way in the eighth when he dropped Beltran with a counter straight tight hand to the head. Esquivias went in for the kill, but was unable to finish Beltran off. Esquivias slowed down in the 10th round, prompting Beltran to press the action and land a few punches flush to the head until the final bell. One judge scored the fight 95-94 in favor of Beltran, but the other two judges scored the bout 97-92 and 96-93 in favor of Esquivias. Fightnews.com scored the bout 96-93 in favor of Esquivias.

Cote: Don’t Blink

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Photo: Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

Cesar Soriano is one of those boxers who has made the trip to Montreal many times. An experienced rugged Mexican opponent who wins as many as he loses, he has been brought in to give the local guys some rounds and a hard earned ‘W’. He had been brought in a total of five times and made it to the scorecard each time against quality opponents such as Logan McGuiness, Jo Jo Dan, and Kevin Bizier. When he was brought in for Pier-Olivier Cote, he lasted 30 seconds.

Next time out for Cote, his corner were wanting of a more restrained effort, a little more patience from their fighter according to his trainer Francois Duguay. “He had an opportunity in the first five seconds of the fight,” said Duguay of the fight with a 37-7-1 Michael Lozado, “He was patient though and he stopped himself because we kept telling him to hold on a little bit.” (more…)

Demers ready for Green

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

It’s a make or break fight for both fighters. Both are former world title challengers. Both have lost two of their last three. And both Allan Green(30-3 21KO) and Sebastien Demers(31-4 11KO) look to Saturday in Quebec City to righting the ship and getting back into contention in a highly competitive super-middleweight division.

While both fighters dig deep to find answers, Demers has made a change in trainers, hiring Howard Grant as he hopes to move forward. “I wish I had him five years ago,” said Grant of the 31 year-old Demers who has suffered a pair of brutal knockout losses in the early rounds of his last two fights. “He’s a hard worker, he’s hungry to learn still, he’s a gem to work with. He doesn’t cut any corners, we do the hard work, we do the grind.” (more…)

In front of a packed house at Martin’s Valley Mansion in Cockeysville, MD that included current and former members of the Baltimore Ravens as well as former Baltimore Orioles, two Maryland veterans battled in one of the better bouts this year in the Beltway region.

“The Berlin Bomber” Joshua Snyder of Berlin, MD won a tough eight-round split decision over Baltimore’s Maxell “The General” Taylor. Great close fight, both in the ring and on the scorecards. The bout was fought mostly phone-booth style until Snyder was able to put Taylor on his bicycle in the seventh round. Judges Don Risher and Dave Greer saw the bout 77-75 for Snyder while Gary Camponeschi gave Taylor the nod, 77-75. (more…)
