Former two time world champion Lovemore “Black Panther” Ndou (49-13-2, 31 KOs) outscored former IBF champion Gairy “Superman” St Clair (42-12-2, 18 KOs) over twelve rounds to capture the IBF Pan Pacific and WBF 147 pound title at the Southport RSL, Southport, Queensland, Australia Friday. Ndou controlled the bout in the early rounds as he connected with solid left jabs that set up combinations on his skillful opponent, who continually used every inch of the ring and proved to be a difficult target. Rounds six and seven had the Guyana-born and Australian-based St Clair stepping up the action as he scored with fast combinations. Ndou regained control in round eight but switch hitter St Clair rallied in rounds nine and ten – staying out of trouble with bob and weave tactics. Ndou outworked St Claire in round eleven as he scored with jarring left jabs but once again St Clair gave Ndou problems in the twelth and final stanza with his unorthodox tactics. Referee Phil Austin raised Ndou’s hand winner by scores 117-112, 116-112, 116-112. who was having his first fight back in Australia after clashing with world class welterweights and light middleweights in South Africa, Mexico and England which included Saul Alvarez and Kell Brook.

Remembering Olympic medalists out of Japan

By Joe Koizumi

Japanese middleweight Ryota Murata, as highly expected, gained the Olympic gold medal by eking out a 14-13 narrow decision over Brazilian Esquiva Florentino over three hard-fought rounds on Saturday in London. 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. It is really remarkable that Japan has had a couple of medalists—Murata and a bronze winner Satoshi Shimizu—after more than forty years since our pioneers. (more…)

Perez edges Mamadjonov

By Francisco Salazar at ringside
Photos: Big Joe Miranda

In a battle of unbeaten lightweights, contender Darley Perez won a close 10 round split-decision over Bahodir Mamadjonov at the Morongo Casino Resort and Spa in Cabazon, CA. During the first three rounds of the fight, the southpaw Mamadjonov was the more effective fighter, countering Perez to the head and body. Perez got going during the middle rounds, pressing the fight and scoring with straight right hands to the head. Perez scored a knockdown in the eighth round, dropping Mamadjonov with a right uppercut to the head. Mamadjonov rebounded well in the ninth round, but Perez was able to outland Mamadjonov in the final round. One judge scored the bout 95-94 in favor of Mamadjonov, while the other two judges scored the bout 96-93 and 95-94 in favor of Perez. Fightnews.com scored the bout 95-94 in favor of Perez, who hails from San Pedro de Uraba, Colombia and improves to 26-0, 19 KOs. Mamadjonov, a native of Uzbekistan and now residing in Houston, TX, falls to 11-1, 7 KOs.

Super bantamweight Chris Avalos won a hard-fought 10 round unanimous decision over previously-unbeaten Yenifel Vicente. Avalos started strong and controlled the action in the first three rounds of the fight, consistently landing right hands to the head of Vicente. After Vicente was able to control the fourth, Avalos dropped Vicente with a counter left hook to the head in the fifth. Vicente stood up, but was stunned with another right to the head later in the round. Avalos dictated the pace, until he started slowing down in the final two rounds. Sensing he was down, Vicente came on, but did not do enough as all three judges, including Fightnews.com, scored the bout 97-92. Avalos, from Lancaster, CA, goes to 20-2, 15 KOs. The Dominican-born Vicente, now training out of Miami, FL, drops to 23-1-2, 15 KOs. (more…)

Lamont Peterson Statement

“I’m thankful, and I’m thrilled with the IBF’s decision,” said Lamont Peterson when informed that the International Boxing Federation decided to allow Peterson to retain his Junior Welterweight title. Over the past few months, the Peterson camp has worked diligently to defend Lamont in the face of accusations and innuendo following the cancellation of a May fight with Amir Khan.

Throughout the process, Lamont and his team have consistently maintained that Lamont never took any actions intended to provide him with a competitive advantage. In vindicating Lamont, the independent review conducted by the IBF confirmed the Peterson camp’s position. The IBF’s independent physician determined that “the testosterone levels noted in the VADA report are consistent with the therapeutic use of the hormone and not for the purpose of performance enhancement.”

Lamont added, “I want to thank my manager, Barry Hunter, for all of his support throughout this ordeal. There were a lot of naysayers out there, but Barry and the rest of my team never doubted me. My team fought non-stop to ensure that I was cleared.” (more…)

Trainer says Kayode hit him

According to Arevalo, Kayode was sparring Malik Scott when Arevalo, who until recently worked with Kayode, made an offhand remark. Kayode threatened Arevalo and after taking off his boxing gloves, struck Arevalo on the cheek and neck. A large number of onlookers were on hand to witness the episode. Arevalo expressed to Fightnews that he would be pursuing criminal charges against Kayode which might put the undefeated fighter’s near future in limbo.

Agnew squeaks past Page

Unbeaten WBC Continental/WBC US NBC light heavyweight titleholder Cedric Agnew (24-0, 13 KOs) had to work hard to claim a six round majority decision over veteran Zack Page (21-39-2, 7 KOs) on Thursday night in front of a near full house at the Houston Club in downtown Houston, Texas.

Despite Agnew being the heavy favorite and undefeated beltholder, it was the game Page who continued to bring the action each round. At times Agnew’s corner pleaded with their fighter to let his hands go. Agnew responded with glimpses of what made him undefeated by ripping left and right hooks to the body that had Page backing up and retreating. However, Page wasn’t going to let a few shots to the rib cage make him go down and he began pelting Agnew with combinations to the head from all angles. Agnew finally began to hurt Page late but the match was left up to the judges. Agnew kept his undefeated record intact by scores of 58-56, 59-55, 57-57. (more…)

IBF: Peterson is still champion; must face Judah

Photo: Tri Nguyen

The International Boxing Federation has decided that Lamont Peterson will keep the organization’s Junior Welterweight title, which he won from Amir Khan on December 10, 2011. The organization’s decision is based on the findings reported by an independent physician, certified in internal medicine and endocrinology, retained by the IBF to review Peterson’s medical records in relation to the information disclosed in the VADA report released this past May.

The physician was asked by the IBF to provide an opinion as to whether the levels of testosterone noted in the VADA report appeared to be consistent with the therapeutic use of the hormone, or for performance enhancing purposes. Additionally, the physician was asked to confer on whether these levels of testosterone would have enhanced Lamont Peterson’s training for and performance during the bout on December 10, 2011, and for his training for the bout scheduled for May 19, 2012. After concluding the review of all the documentation provided by Peterson’s camp and the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the physician determined that the testosterone levels noted in the VADA report are consistent with the therapeutic use of the hormone and not for the purpose of performance enhancement. Therefore, these levels would not have enhanced Lamont Peterson’s training for or performance during the bout on December 10, 2011. Nor for his training for the bout that was schedule for May 19, 2012, as a specimen collected by VADA on April 13, 2012 tested negative on May 2, 2012. (more…)
