Matt Hamill to unveil Hammer 2.0

When Matt Hamill walked away from mixed martial arts on August 8, 2011, it was one of the more surprising retirements we’ve seen. Sure, “The Hammer” was coming off back-to-back losses and was nearing the age of 35, but one loss came via decision to former world champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and the other was in a short notice fight against rising star Alex Gustafsson. No shame in either, and a lot of fighters stayed around a lot longer with worse resumes . . . Click here for more by Thomas Gerbasi, UFC.com

Jeter in triple threat mode

By Gary “Digital” Williams

In today’s boxing world, many boxers are dabbling into the promotional aspects of the sport. In many cases, however, when their names are attached to a promotion, it is, in reality, just their names that are attached — a scant few actually get into the long and sometimes frustrating grind of actually promoting a card behind the scenes.

Stevensville, MD middleweight Tony “Mo Better” Jeter is from a different mindset. For the third time, Jeter will wear many hats going into his Saturday, September 22 card at Club One Fitness in Millersville, MD. Jeter, under his own Jeter Promotions banner, will be promoting the show. Jeter is serving as the matchmaker for the card. Jeter (13-3-1, nine KO’s) will also be in the main event – an eight-round contest against Tyrel Brown of Gibson, OK (7-2, seven KO’s, one NC) for the vacant WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title. (more…)

Saludar, Tirado make weight

By Dennis Principe

Mexican boxer Jose Alfredo Tirado exuded confidence and boldly predicted an easy knockout win against undefeated Filipino opponent Froilan Saludar in their title fight Friday night at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City, Philippines.

The weigh-in held yesterday at the same venue in some ways could justify Tirado’s claim after easily making the weight limit of 112lbs.

“This is an easy fight for me. I’m not worried because I came prepared. I’m not afraid of Saludar because I have fought boxers who are a lot better than him,” said Tirado. (more…)

Fujimoto defeats WBC #15 Welliver

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Japanese heavyweight prospect Kyotaro Fujimoto (5-0, 3 KOs), 225.75, surprisingly defeated WBC#15 Chauncy Welliver (53-7-5 20 KOs), 250.25, US, by a unanimous decision (98-94, 98-93 and 99-91) over ten rounds on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. Kyotaro, 26, used to fight in K-1 martial arts bouts, using his thick legs, and entered the international style field just last year. Welliver, a taller southpaw than the six-foot Japanese, looked heavy around the waist, but dominated the opening session with solid lead rights. Fujimoto, however, began to aim at the loose breadbasket and utilized his faster footwork from the second round on. Since Kyotaro’s combinations were quick but light, Welliver had him land pit-a-pat punches freely to land his big right shots, which often missed the Japanese target. Welliver once caught Kyotaro in round nine, when he connected with southpaw right uppercuts to the aggressor and almost buckled the Japanese’ knees. Utilizing his hit-and-run strategy, Kyotaro was in command in the last session as he kept peppering the visibly fading prefight favorite and quickly moved away. Welliver might have taken him lightly, but Kyotaro fought much better than we had expected—in his first ten-rounder. (more…)

Rosado going for the kill

By John DiSanto – Philly Boxing History (.com)

Photo: Provisions1816.com

Junior middleweight contender Gabriel Rosado and trainer Billy Briscoe left Philadelphia for a two-week training camp in Phoenix, Arizona, where they spent their time doing final preparations for their September 21st nationally televised fight. Today they fly back to Philly, and then head straight to Bethlehem, PA for what figures to be their most important fight yet. That phrase has come in handy in 2012, with each of Rosado’s fights this year increasing in difficulty and every win propelling him closer to a world title fight.

Friday night, Rosado, 20-5 (12 KOs), faces Charles Whittaker, a Miami-based boxer from the Cayman Islands with a 38-12-2 (23 KOs) record. The 12-round fight is an IBF Title Eliminator. This means the winner of the fight becomes the #1 IBF junior middleweight in the world, and secures a mandatory title shot against champion Cornelius “K9” Bundrage. This is everything Rosado has been fighting for. So once again, the phrase fits. It’s the most important fight of his life. (more…)

Jhonny Gonzalez Statement

By Gabriel F. Cordero

“It was a tough fight,” said former WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez, who was dethroned in Las Vegas by Daniel Ponce De Leon via technical decision after an unintentional headbutt. “Ponce’s style was complicated for me but I was doing my fight and until then I’m sure we were winning the fight. Unfortunately in Las Vegas it’s not so easy and again we came out with a strange decision and this time it was my turn. I had hopes of impartiality and leaving with the victory. Now I hope for the opportunity for revenge and it’ll be another story.”

Gonzalez’ promoter Promociones del Pueblo is seeking a WBC-ordered direct rematch against Ponce De Leon. According to the Gonzalez camp, the rematch is warranted not only because there was a rematch clause in the contract, but because they say Ponce De Leon delivered a long list of illegal blows without receiving any warning from referee Kenny Bayless. They are asking that Ponce’s first defense against Gonzalez take place at a venue chosen by Promociones del Pueblo and that the fight be officiated by appointees of the WBC rather than from “a commission that is best known for its irregularities.”

Frampton ready to make Molitor pay

Unbeaten super bantamweight Carl Frampton believes Steve Molitor is in for a shock on Saturday night and has vowed to make the two-time world champion pay for a lack of respect. Molitor touched down in Belfast yesterday and instantly warned Frampton that it was “too soon” for him to step up to face him. “He’s said a few things about me in the build up and he obviously likes to talk a bit – that’s fine,” said Frampton. “All that matters to me is victory on Saturday night and doing it in the best possible way for the fans. He won’t have any friends in the Arena on Saturday and his words won’t be able to help him then. I would love to fight him right now, I’m totally ready. This is a massive fight for me, I know that I am leaping up the levels to face Molitor but I believe I have more than enough to cope with him and this is the right time for me to prove I can cut it at the top.”
