Rios was the weekend’s star

By Graham Houston

The star turn on Saturday’s Boxing After Dark wasn’t Yuriorkis Gambia, as many had anticipated, but Brandon Rios. The crowd-pleasing lightweight from Oxnard, CA, looked powerful and precise in breaking down and overwhelming Anthony Peterson in a meeting of undefeated rising stars. This had looked an even-money fight, with Peterson a slight favourite because he had won nearly every round of every fight while Rios had some struggles earlier in his career. Rios, however, had shown improvement in the past year and on Saturday night he stepped up to another level. Peterson’s disqualification at the end of the seventh round saved him from being knocked out. (more…)

A calm, cool and collected Yuriorkis Gamboa boxed and remained relatively careful to keep his unbeaten record intact to defeat IBF featherweight champion Orlando Salido via unanimous decision in their 12 round battle. The WBA featherweight champ looked a lot different than the Gamboa of the past – even sedated at times – as he picked his shots wisely while outpointing Salido by scores of 116-109, 115-109 and 114-109.

The fight was televised on HBO’s Boxing After Dark series on a Top Rank-promoted show that took place at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas . . . click here for more

Lawrence upsets Whitaker

Promoter Craig Zimmerman’s MEZ Sports once again delivered an exciting night of boxing Saturday night. This time MEZ Sports brought its Pandemonium fight series to the Riverside Convention Center, for the first fight card ever in the city of Riverside, California. More impressive was the fact that Zimmerman was able to put together a legitimate main event on extremely short notice. In the main Franklin “Yah-Yah” Lawrence (13-2-2, 8 KOs) of Indiana brutally knocked out “Mount” Lance Whitaker (35-7-2, 28 KOs) of Southern California at 2:59 of round 7 to win the IBO Intercontinental Heavyweight Title. Whitaker was rushed to the emergency room as a precaution after fight but is now reported to be ok. In the co-feature hometown flyweight fighter Anthony Villareal (10-3, 5KO’s) of Riverside stopped veteran Benjamin Garcia in round round.

Nonaka tops WBO #8 Nikulin

By Joe Koizumi

Ex-OPBF 154-pound champ Yuki Nonaka (20-8-2, 7 KOs), 153.5, barely earned a close but unanimous decision (96-95, 98-95 and 98-93) over previously unbeaten WBO#8 Dmitro Nikulin (21-1, 8 KOs), 153.5, over ten hairline rounds on Sunday in Osaka, Japan.

In an encounter of southpaws, they cautiously probed each other with light jabs in the first two rounds. From the third, Nonaka started positively throwing solid southpaw lefts, while Nikulin covered himself up and responded to his attack. Each failed to hit in combination only to toss a punch at a time. Nikulin, in the last session, was penalized a point for hitting a rabbit punch to the back head of the veteran Japanese, six years his senior at 32. It was such a close affair that but for a penalization in the final round it might have been so close to a draw.

Promoter: Amagasaki Promotions.

O’Neil keeps belt, Camacho upset

WIBA Women’s International Heavyweight Champion Gwendolyn O’Neil (16-6-1, 7 KOs) successfully defended her title against Crystal Davis (4-3-0, 3 KOs) at the Night of the Champions at the Skatium in Fort Myers, Florida. The WIBA and GBU champion O’Neil easily handled the much younger and less experienced challenger Davis, winning via decision.

Felix “Showtime” Camacho (20-6-0, 7 KOs), the younger brother of Hector “Macho” Camacho and former WBF world champion found the road back to be a difficult one. In a surprise upset, a game Adrian Perez (6-2-1, 1 KO), from Sarasota, out-pointed “Showtime” in the six round contest. Camacho had been inactive for over nine years and with this loss, may be headed back into retirement. (more…)

Cuban sensation Yuriorkis Gamboa might’ve been the headliner on the card, but the real star of, both, the fight card and the post-fight press conference, was Brandon Rios.

Three division world champion and Mexican boxing legend Erik Morales (50-6, 35 KOs) returned to knock out Willie Limond (33-3, 8 KOs) in round six on Saturday night at the Monumental Plaza de Toros Mexico in Mexico City. Morales seemed to shake off the ring rust after a few rounds and finally dropped Limond three times with body shots in round six to end it. Time was 2:46.

In a clash for the WBC International flyweight belt, former WBC 108lb world champion champion Edgar Sosa (40-6, 24 KOs) stopped reigning titleholder Ryan Bito (18-7-3, 6 KOs) in round ten. After building a commanding lead on the cards, Sosa dropped Bito twice in round ten with body shots and the bout was waved off. Time was 2:05. (more…)

In a unification clash for the IBF/WBA featherweight world titles, Yuriorkas Gamboa (19-0, 15 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over Orlando Salido (34-11-2, 22 KOs) on Saturday night at the Palms Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The talented Gamboa won most the rounds, but had many difficulties against the experienced and cagey Salido. Salido was credited with a knockdown in round eight, but was staggered in round ten. Gamboa dropped Salido twice in round twelve, but was deducted two points for hitting Salido while he was on the canvas. Scores were 116-109, 114-109, 115-109. Gamboa is now WBA/IBF titleholder.

Peterson dominated round one, but Rios’ pressure started paying dividends in round two and the bout became a thrilling firefight. Rios staggered Peterson in a big round four. Peterson was dropped hard with a left hand at the end of round five. Peterson was deducted two points for low blows in round six. Peterson was DQ’d by referee Russell Mora for another low blow in round seven at the bell ending round seven. All three judges had Rios up 68-62 at the time the bout was stopped. (more…)

Salido stripped of IBF belt

Too much weight gained

12 hours before his unification fight against WBA featherweight champ Yuriorkis Gamboa, IBF champ Orlando Salido was stripped of the belt for exceeding the IBF’s maximum 10 pound weight gain rule after an 8AM weigh-in. Salido, who weighed 126 at yesterday’s weigh-in, weighed 138. The rule is intended to prevent the fighters from risking their health due to rapid weight gain. As a result the WBA title is still up for grabs for both fighters, but only Gambaoa is eligible to win the IBF belt. If Salido wins, the IBF title will be vacant.

Nikulin, Nonaka collide tomorrow

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Ukrainian, WBO European 154-pound champ Dmytro Nikulin (21-0, 8 KOs) will cope with ex-OPBF ruler Yuki Nonaka (19-8-2, 7 KOs) on Sunday in Osaka, Japan. Both tipped the beam at 153.5 pounds today. It is an encounter of southpaws. WBO #8 Nikulin, under K2 Promotions, acquired the vacant WBO regional belt by scoring a third round knockout over Abdulaziz Matazimov in Ukraine last December. Nanaka, two inches taller and six years his senior at 32, forfeited his OPBF belt to Akio Shibata (who recently yielded the throne to Charlie Ota Bellamy) last November. Nikulin seems more skillful, faster and younger, but Nonaka may attempt to mix it up and hurt him with left crosses. Nikulin’s manager Alexander Krassyuk, responding to a TV interview, predicted his boy’s triumph either on points or by a stoppage. It will be a good fight to be presented by Amagasaki Promotions.

In the co-feature, unbeaten Olympian welterweight Luis Enrique Grajeda (10-0-1, 7 KOs) was knocked down in rounds two and six by Alan Sanchez (5-2-1, 2 KOs), but somehow managed to salvage an unpopular eight round draw. Scores were 75-75 on all cards.
