Hernandez dethrones Cunningham

Proska destroys Sylvester, Campillo-Murat draw

By Karl Freitag

IBF cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham (24-3, 12 KOs) lost a controversial six round technical decision to interim champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez (25-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Jahnsportforum in Neubrandenburg, Germany. Hernandez dropped Cunningham with a short left hand in round one and Cunningham barely beat the count and barely survived the round. Cunningham seemed recovered by round two (trainer Nazeem Richardson bought Cunningham some extra time by spilling water in the corner). Hernandez surprisingly didn’t jump on Cunningham in round two, letting the champion further clear his head. Hernandez was cut on the left side of his head in round three and over his right eye in round six by head clashes and Cunningham schooled Hernandez from round three on. Referee Mickey Vann surprisingly waved it off after the sixth round due to the cuts, which didn’t seem particularly bad. Scores were 57-56 Cunningham, 58-55 and 59-54 for Hernandez. Cunningham was very upset by the sudden stoppage.

Unbeaten middleweight Grzegorz Proksa (26-0, 19 KOs) battered and bloodied former IBF champion and hometown favorite Sebastian Sylvester (34-5-1, 16 KOs) to win the vacant European middleweight title over three one-sided rounds. The fight ended when Sylvester didn’t come out for round four. (more…)

Ravea Springs returns tonight

By Brian Grammer

Former cruiserweight world title challenger Ravea Springs (28-3, 22 KOs) returns to the ring tonight after a three year layoff against veteran Willie Herring (12-9-3, 3 KOs) at the Rising Sun Casino in Rising Sun, Indiana. The 40-year old Springs – a former NABO cruiserweight champion and 1990 National Golden Gloves Light middleweight champion from nearby Cincinnati – hopes to “spring” back to contendership an once promising career. Springs will have a tough test against the durable Herring who has been stopped only once inside the distance over his ten-year career. The Springs vs. Herring contest is for the vacant UBO cruiserweight title. The undercard features four bouts showcasing local talent. The promoter is Nate Tubbs – a former fighter himself and the brother of former heavyweight champion Tony Tubbs. The doors open at 6p and the first bout is at 7p. Tickets are $35 for general admission or $100 V.I.P. seating and are still available at the Rising Sun box office. (more…)

Ennis back in action

By Kurt Wolfheimer

Former USBA Junior middleweight champion Derek “Pooh” Ennis (22-3-1, 13 KOs) makes his long awaited return to the squared circle tonight in an eight round bout at the Greensboro, Coliseum Pavilion in Greensboro, North Carolina against dangerous twenty seven fight veteran Shakir Ashanti (16-11, 4 KOs). Ennis looked to be on his way to a world title contention, when he was shocked by Cuban southpaw Giorbis Bathelemay (25-8-2, 10 KOs) in March, ending his ten fight winning streak. The stunning loss has only reenergized the thirty one year old Philadelphian who has rededicated himself to the gym and he knows his run for a world title can only happen with a victory tonight. However, it won’t be easy as Ashanti has faced some of the best in the business, even going the distance with former IBF and WBC junior middleweight title holder Corey Spinks last March.

The eight bout card promoted by Walter Johnson Promotions will feature a ten round women’s contest for the Universal Boxing Council heavyweight title as Winston Salem, North Carolina’s Carlette Ewell (14-7, 9 KOs) squares off hard hitting Tiffany Woodard (4-5, 3 KOs) of Wilson, North Carolina.

Barry takes on Struve

UFC Live 6 is LIVE on VERSUS Oct. 1!

Story by Anthony Springer Jr.

At 5’11, Pat Barry—on paper—doesn’t seem to be an undersized heavyweight. After a look at his last few opponents, Barry’s weight class seems puzzling.

Mirko Cro Cop (6’1), Joey Beltran (6’1) and Cheick Kongo (6’4) all towered over the former kick boxer in the Octagon. It doesn’t help that Barry went 1-2 in those three bouts either.

This Saturday at UFC on Versus, the undersized heavyweight finds himself in a proverbial David vs. Goliath contest when he meets the division’s tallest fighter, Stefan Struve in the co-main event.

Ashley Theophane Update

Earlier this week, British light welterweight champion Ashley “Treasure” Theophane (30-4-1, 8 KOs) signed a three-year promotional deal with Hatton Promotions. Theophane, 31, is due to make the second defense of his domestic crown against Nigel Wright later this year. “I believe with Ricky and his team backing me, absolutely anything is possible,” Theophane wrote in his blog. “I have been self-managed for the majority of my career and it is time to move to the next level and now with Europe’s number one promoter behind me, the timing could not be better. I am ready to fight the World’s best, just like Ricky did, and I know he can make that happen.”

US-based Cestus Management, however, issued a press release stating that Theophane is still under a valid management agreement with them, as well as a promotional options agreement with Mick Hennessy of Hennessy Sports, and announced that they plan to enforce their agreement.

Hatton reveals suicide thoughts

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Former world champion Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton told BBC Radio 5 that after his devastating KO loss to Manny Pacquiao, he harbored thoughts of suicide. “I was so down, I was crying and breaking out and contemplating suicide,” Hatton said. “I was going deeper and deeper into depression. I was going out and having a few drinks. The worst thing you can do with depression is add alcohol to it…I was having blackouts, days on end whether I was drinking or not when I couldn’t remember what had happened in my life. I thank the News of the World because who knows where it could have ended up.”

The tabloid posted a video of Hatton using cocaine, which lead to “The Hitman” entering rehab.
