Diaz on GSP, Penn & Floyd

Postfight report by Anthony Springer Jr.

If you were listening, there were times you nodded your head. Others, you just mentally said, “Huh?”

Nick Diaz comments were all things baffling, on point and indecipherable. The Stockton fighter’s ability to not be all things to all people, but be something to all people have a lot to do with his rocket like rise in recent weeks.

After complaining about not having as high a profile as he liked due to a lack of visibility in Strikeforce, Diaz got exactly what he wanted yesterday. All eyes on him as the co-headliner of UFC 137. (more…)

Aoh looks in good shape

By Joe Koizumi

WBC super-feather champ Takahiro Aoh (21-2-1, 10 KOs), a fast-punching Japanese southpaw, showed his public workout on Saturday prior to his forthcoming defense with unbeaten Italian Devis Boschiero (29-0-1, 14 KOs) in Tokyo, Japan, on November 6.

Aoh, making his second defense since dethroning Vitali Tajbert here last December, displayed sharp southpaw lefts and good footwork before trainers of the Italian challenger who will also show his training for press people on Monday. Aoh said, “I’ll do my fight and defend my belt without going to the final bell.” The 27-year-old champ is still improving technically, and will display finer skills with good condition at the Yoyogi #2 Gymnasium, where the title bout will be presented by Teiken Promotions.

Having been dethroned by Jhonny Gonzalez via TKO route last April, ex-WBC feather and bantam champ Hozumi Hasegawa (29-4, 12 KOs), a Japanese southpaw speedster, will return to the ring warfare when he faces unbeaten Mexican Felipe Carlos Felix (18-0, 10 KOs) in Kobe, Japan, on December 17.

Uchiyama to defend WBA belt

Hosono to challenge Caballero

By Joe Koizumi

You refrain from working on Sundays in Christian countries, but Japanese boxing persons still keep working regardless of what day of the week it may be. Ohashi Promotions, in association with Watanabe Promotions, has announced a dual world title event on the last day of this year today (Sunday) in Tokyo, Japan. Unbeaten WBA super-feather champ Takashi Uchiyama (17-0, 14 KOs), Japan, will face WBA interim ruler Jorge Solis (40-3-2-1NC, 29 KOs), Mexico, in a unification bout over twelve rounds at Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium, Yokohama city. It will be ex-amateur champ Uchiyama’s fourth defense since he captured the throne via last-round stoppage of Juan Carlos Salgado in January of the previous year. Uchiyama impressively demolished all three challengers within the distance to his credit.

In a companion world title go, hard-punching prospect Satoshi Hosono (21-1, 15 KOs), former Japanese and OPBF ruler, will make an ambitious crack at the WBA feather belt against newly crowned Celestino Caballero (35-4, 23 KOs), a tall and lanky Panamanian switch-hitter, over twelve rounds. We look forward to watching highly competitive fights before the new year comes in hours. More photos…

Povetkin comments on Fury

WBA Heavyweight Champion Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 16 KOs) has laughed off the comments from Tyson Fury (16-0, 11 KOs), who recently claimed he was ready to “take Povetkin out.” The 32-year-old Russian makes a first defense of his title at Helsinki´s Hartwall Areena on December 3 against Cedric Boswell (35-1, 26 KOs). Povetkin was amused by Fury´s remarks. “I am ready to defend my belt against every challenger out there,” he stated. “But I must admit I am not overly scared by comments from someone whose biggest hit to date has been a Youtube video where he punches himself in the face. Right now all my focus is on Cedric Boswell.”

Promoter Kalle Sauerland added: “We would love to make that fight and I had offered them the December date but they didn’t seem to fancy it too much so perhaps now we can discuss next spring. First Alexander needs to take care of a very tough challenger in Cedric Boswell.”

Former IBF middleweight champion Arthur Abraham says he’s returning to the middleweight division after dropping three of four fights at 168lbs in SHOWTIME’s groundbreaking Super Six Tournament. “In January I start my comeback,” Abraham told BILD. “Not yet at middleweight, but at 75 kilos (165.3 lbs.).

Boxing Result

Lightweight Andrey Klimov was declared the winner when his opponent Eduardo Arcos was unable to continue after the fourth round in their scheduled 10 round bout at Las Trancas Hall in Maywood, CA.. Arcos, who took the fight on two day’s notice when Pipino Cuevas Jr. was unable to fight because of visa problems, started out aggressively in the first round. An accidental head butt opened a cut on Klimov’s hairline in the first round. Klimov (12-0, 7 KO’s) was able to get into a rhythm, countering as Arcos (16-6-1, 13 KO’s) pressed the fight. Right after the bell sounded to end the fourth round, Klimov landed a right cross that wobbled Arcos against the ropes. Arcos stumbled to his corner, blood dripping from a cut above his left ear. Arcos’ corner told referee David Denkin that their fighter was not fit to continue, alleging Klimov fouled Arcos after the bell sounded. Denkin told Arcos’ corner that if Arcos was unable to continue, Klimov would be declared the winner. Arcos remained on his stool, therefore Denkin declared Klimov the winner by technical knockout. With the victory, Klimov wins a regional title belt.

There was a delay of over an hour because of an EMT situation where EMTs apparently misled the commission and promoters to believe that they were paramedics. So the delay was out of promoter’s hands. (more…)

Not an easy fight for the 36-year-old Calderon against the aggressive Rivas. The “Iron Boy” won by scores of 97-93, 96-94, while the other card was 96-94 for Rivas who ended the fight with a violent rally. Calderon claimed the vacant WBO Latino minimumweight title.

In his first bout since losing his WBO super bantamweight belt to Jorge Arce in May, Wilfredo “WV2″ Vázquez Jr. (21-1-1, 18 KOs) scored a crushing third round knockout over former minimumweight titleholder Roberto Carlos “Mako” Leyva (28-14-1, 21 KOs). It was a right to the jaw that finished Leyva, who has now lost six straight. Time was 2:59. Leyva announced his retirement after the bout.

WBO female junior flyweight champion Yessica Bopp (17-0, 8 KOs) scored a first round KO over Suzanne Warner (9-11-1, 2 KOs). The bout was waved off after Warner’s second visit to the canvas. Time was 1:21. For more details and photos click here…

Results from Motown

Photos and report by Bob Ryder

Carlisle Boxing, promoter John Carlisle, presented a seven bout card of professional boxing at DeCarlo’s Convention Center in the suburban Detroit city of Warren on Friday night. It was a show filled with early endings. Five boxers were making their pro debuts and as so often happens in the case of first timers, one is never quite sure of what you will get. In the only contest that went the distance and was far and away the best fight of the night, Detroit’s Larry Ventus won a unanimous six round decision over Toledo’s Gabriel Morris in their welterweight scrap. Scores were 59-56, 58-56, 59-55. Ventus started strong in dominating the first round and for a moment it looked like this one would end early as all the other bouts had. Morris however, began to hit his stride and kept engaging Ventus in spirited exchanges. Ventus bloodied Morris’ nose in the third and Morris would fight with the handicap the rest of the way. Morris had an excellent fifth round and it started to feel that an upset was in the making but Ventus boxed smoothly in the final round stunning Morris right before the bell to secure the victory in upping his record to (5-1, 4 KO’s). Morris came to fight but declines to (4-16-2, 0 KO’s). For more details and photos click here…

At 37, Mirko Cro Cop is far from the man he used to be.

At the height of his career, he was an enigma. He said little, preferring to let his fist and feet do the talking in the ring. His aura ballooned to epic proportions after sending opponents to dream land with a high kick reminiscent of and as consistent as a pro-wrestlers finishing maneuver. (more…)
