Unbeaten middleweights collide Sept 14

Billy Joe Saunders will defend his Commonwealth Middleweight title against Australian rival Jarrod Fletcher at Wembley Arena on Friday 14th September.

The dynamite-fisted Saunders, 22, won the title in a lightning 30 seconds at the Royal Albert Hall in April against Tony Hill and made a successful first defence against Bradley Pryce with a points win last month.

Guerrero, Aydin Post-Fight Presser Comments

By Sam Geraci

Coming off shoulder surgery and nearly a fourteen month layoff, three division world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KOs) established himself as a legitimate welterweight threat by moving up two weight classes to defeat previously unbeaten Selcuk “Mini Tyson” Aydin (23-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA, over twelve hard-fought rounds to capture the Interim WBC Welterweight Title via unanimous decision with scores of 117-111, 116-112, and 116-112.

Unlike the pre-fight hype and antics at the weigh-in, throughout the press conference, both fighters were gracious and respectful of each other and their performances.

“He was strong. Very strong. I hit him with some great shots and he just kept coming,” said Guerrero when asked what Aydin did best. (more…)

Australian middleweight Les Sherrington (29-6, 17 KOs) was impressive in winning a twelve round decision over former IBF world champion Luis Ramon “Yory Boy” Campas (100-17-1, 79 KOs) to capture the WBF world and IBF Pan Pacific titles at Broadbeach Convention Center, Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia on Saturday. Sherrington was cautious in the early rounds and used clever footwork to avoid the heavy handed and aggressive Campas while connecting with long range combinations. The rangy Sherrington exploded a solid right off the Mexican’s jaw in round three that staggered the visitor. Campas stepped up a gear in rounds five and six and delivered accurate head and body shots consistently to outwork the Australian. (more…)

In front of a packed house on Saturday night at The Paramount in Huntington, New York, hometown favorite Chris Algieri improved to 15-0-0 (7KO’s), with an excellent performance against tough Texas fighter Raul Tovar in the eight round junior welterweight headliner. Despite being tested by Tovar throughout the bout, Algieri was able to adapt to changes in tactics from the Mission, Texas native and utilize his speed and boxing skills to consistently score points throughout the bout. Tovar came on strong late in the bout but Algieri maintained his composure and continued to control the action. Scores at the end of the eight rounds were 78-74 and 77-75 twice. With the hard fought loss, the game Tovar moves to 10-6-1 (4KO’s). (more…)

Valadez destroys Vazquez

Story and photos by Felipe Leon

Friday night, July 27th, proved the return of PM Promotions, led by Diego “Pelucho” Morales, two-time super flyweight champion and brother of Erik “Terrible” Morales, to Tijuana, Mexico’s boxing scene with an exciting six bout fight card “Guerra En El Centro (War in Downtown)” held at the Mutualista Hall. A modest but enthusiastic crowd witnessed seventeen year old Jesus “Bombardero” Valadez (6-1, 3KOs) completely disconnect Edgar Vazquez (4-3-1, 2KOs) from his senses in the first round of the light welterweight six round main event.

Tijuana’s Vazquez came out fast and furious at the opening bell, hoping to catch Valadez, also of Tijuana, off guard. Valadez remained calm and baited his time as he defended himself against Vazquez’s flurried attack. Once Vazquez slowed down, Valadez began his assault and as Vazquez scored with a left hook, Valadez counter attacked with a jab followed with a straight right that caught Valadez flush on the chin. Vazquez immediately crumpled to the ground but his left arm got caught in the second rope of the ring. Referee Juan Morales Lee hurriedly called off the fight and called in the ringside medical service. After several minutes, Vazquez was able to reach his feet. Official time was 1:13 of the first.

Guerrero set for welterweight debut tonight

By Graham Houston

Boxer versus fighter traditionally makes for an outstanding contest, which is what I think we have in store in tonight’s welterweight title fight between Robert Guerrero and Selcuk Aydin that will be televised on Showtime from Guerrero’s home turf in San Jose, CA. Last seen in the ring as a 135-pounder, Guerrero, to me, looked bulky weighing in at 145.8 pounds, so different from the whipcord look of his body when he was boxing in lighter weight classes. Looking at him on the scales on Friday it was hard to imagine that he turned professional in the featherweight division 11 years ago.

I’m not sure I like Guerrero’s beefed-up look. Guerrero jumped two weight divisions to take this fight. He weighed 134 pounds for his last fight, the unanimous decision win over Michael Katsidis 15 months ago. We won’t know till the first bell rings, but I’m wondering if Guerrero will be quite as fast and quite as sharp as he was when he was winning world titles at 126, 130 and 135 pounds. Guerrero is an excellent fighter, but is the welterweight division a bridge too far for him? (more…)

Southern California Fight Scene

Making the transition from unbeaten prospect to unbeaten contender is harder than it seems. There are those fighters that could get caught up in headlining cards, the bigger purses, or the exposure of being unbeaten. Some of those fighters do not know how to handle it and go from being considered a contender to becoming a pretender. Without those realizing it, Ronny Rios was considered a prospect (maybe he still is to some people), but is knocking on the door of becoming a contender. So far, he is pushing the door open and could swing it wide open with a victory tomorrow night. Rios will take on David Rodela in a scheduled 10 super featherweight bout at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA.
