We all remember Fernando Lumacad as the young lad who was knocked out by Jorge Arce in the third round. Everybody loses at a certain point. And more often than not, a boxer’s loss will only make him better. The loss was definitely a wake up call for the young pug from General Santos City. After two losses in a row against Arce and Juan Montes, Lumacad has showed maturity and has in fact won the WBC Asia Continental Flyweight Title. His most recent notable vitory was a unanimous decision win against Glenn Suminguit in a fight held in Hong Kong.
Now, another big break is given to Lumacad as he faces WBA Flyweight Kingpin Hernan “Tyson” Marquez. Marquez is a strong puncher and has been knocking out opponents left and right. He has recently beaten late replacement Ritchie Mepranum and has knocked out Edrin Dapudong earlier. But all is fair in boxing. We never know what happens inside the ring. (more…)

In his most impressive performance of his young career, welterweight Zachary Wohlman won a one-sided, yet competitive four round decision over Jose Martell at the Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, CA. Wohlman worked behind the jab, countering Martell early in the fight with repeated counter left hooks to the head. Wohlman showed feints and angles that allowed him to land combinations to the head as well. Martell landed the occasional hook or cross, but it was not enough to offset Wohlman’s offense. Martell had his beat round in the third, when he was able to feint Wohlman with a jab, but came forward to land a few right hands. However, Wohlman was able to finish well, outlanding Martell in the final round. All three judges scored the bout in favor of Wohlman, 40-36, 40-36, and 39-37. Fightnews.com scored the bout 40-36 in favor of Wohlman. (more…)

A couple of months ago, newly crowned WBC junior lightweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia seemed to be on the same track as many other young champions still getting used to that feel of a world title belt around their waist. After beating Mexican legend Erik Morales by decision in March, Garcia waited to hear who his first title challenger would be. Based on the way things usually work in the sport, most believed Garcia would be pressured by the WBC to next face the undefeated and equally unknown Ajose Olusegun, a 30-0 Nigerian who fights out of the UK. Despite Olusegun’s impressive record, the fight figured to be little more than another sanctioning fee opportunity for the WBC and a first defense payday for Garcia. Just a routine move on the boxing chessboard. However, something happened that made the far from anticipated Garcia vs. Olusegun bout suddenly evaporate. Real opportunity knocked for Garcia. (more…)

Former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion David Haye weighed in at 210 lbs for his grudge match with Dereck Chisora, who weighed 247. They collide Saturday night in London in a ten-round bout.
Chisora: I’ve had three losses and after the fight he’ll have had three losses. We’ll be even. I’m coming for you.
Haye: I don’t know how anyone in their right man could support Dereck Chisora, a convicted woman beater. Who would support someone like that? Someone who says and does the things he does? What is there to support? What type of sane human being supports someone like that?

Unbeaten WBC female 105-pound champ Naoko Fujioka (8-0, 5 KOs) 107.75, engaged in a non-title bout, where she displayed his power punching in earning a unanimous decision (80-72, 80-73 and 79-74) over Mexican Mayela Perez (10-15-3, 7 KOs), 106.5, over eight hard-fought rounds on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. Despite the lopsided tallies they put on a see-saw affair with Fujioka having the upper hand against the very game opponent. The champ occasionally scored with vicious left hooks to the cheek of Perez, who, however, didn’t care about her absorption but furiously fought back with a two-fisted attack. It was rare that a female contest had the crowd into frenzy, but their hot rallies fully pleased the spectators, who praised both boxeadoras. Fujioka will make a mandatory defense against the leading available contender to be designated by the WBC in Miyagi, her native place that had suffered an terrible earthquake disaster last year, in this coming October.
