Kato keeps Japanese 135lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Shaven-skulled slow-starter Yoshitaka Kato (21-4-1, 5 KOs), 135, barely kept his Japanese lightweight belt in his initial defense as he avenged his previous defeat on a split duke by eking out an also split verdict (97-94, 96-95, 94-97) over ex-champ Akihiro Kondo (16-3-1, 6 KOs), 135, over ten close rounds on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. Kondo, some two years ago, kept his belt by dropping Kato with a left hook and managed to win a hairline decision at the same venue. Now Kato was the defending titlist who acquired the vacant belt renounced by the current OPBF ruler Nihito Arakawa. The slick-punching and fast-moving Kondo displayed his favorite hit-and-run strategy, steadily piling up points in the first half, while Kato only kept going forward with his peek-a-boo guard. It looked like a one-sided affair, but the tide abruptly turned in the second half. Kato’s jabs bloodied Kondo’s nostrils and began to mix it up with Kondo’s footwork fading and his stinging lefts diminishing. It followed a similar pattern of the first encounter between Carmen Basilio and Sugar Ray Robinson with the rugged puncher Kato emerging victorious though the decision might be debatable. (more…)

Boxing back in Woodland Hills, Calif

In the early 1970s, professional boxing in Woodland Hills, California was a regular occurrence when legendary Hall of Fame Promoter “Dandy” Don Fraser hosted a weekly show at the historic Valley Music Theater on Ventura Boulevard.

Started in 2007 by former NABO Super Flyweight Champion Kahren Harutyunyan, who later associated with boxing attorney and manager, Steve Bash, the “War at Woodland Hills” boxing series is now in its sixth year. The March 31 show will have a special 70s theme and fight fans are encouraged to bring their favorite bell bottoms and disco shoes.

Highlighting “Saturday Boxing Fever” will be the returns of Boxing360’s former National Amateur Champion and current undefeated pro Donyil Livingston, new local boxing phenomenon Zachary “Kid Yamaka” Wohlman, undefeated prospects from the famed Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard, Herbert Acevedo and Erik Ruiz, and highly regarded female boxer Celine Roman.

Geale targets Taylor, Martinez, other champs

IBF middleweight champion Daniel Geale (27-1, 15 KOs) says he’s ready to invade the U.S. market after his win over Osumanu Adama on Wednesday night at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. “A move to the U.S. could be next for me,” said Geale. “My promoter Gary Shaw is eager to get me some big fights with all the champions at middleweight. I have confidence in my ability to unify the titles and become the best middleweight in the world. I feel great right now and I’m extremely happy knowing big opportunities await me. My career is headed in the right direction and I’m looking forward to my next fight, whoever it may be. A fight with Jermain Taylor is also intriguing being that we were both Olympians in the 2000 Sydney Games. I’m ready to fight the best out there, including Sergio Martinez.”

“Sky is the limit for Daniel,” said promoter Gary Shaw. “Right now the goal is to bring Geale to the U.S. for a big fight on network television. He’s earned the right to fight any of the current champions at middleweight. Daniel is a fantastic fighter and I see him becoming the undisputed champion at 160. When I get back to the states, I will put everything in motion.”

Harrison, Barnett Headline in DC Saturday

By Gary “Digital” Williams

The Keystone Boxing card slated for Saturday, March 10 at the Washington Convention Center in DC is just about together and there are eight bouts slated for the card. Undefeated DC welterweight “The Beltway Boricua” Dusty Harrison is one of the headliners on the card. The 17-year-old will face veteran Booker T. Mullins of Spartanburg, SC in a four-round contest. Harrison (3-0, one KO) fought his last bout at the Convention Center and scored his first pro knockout when he stopped Terrell Davis in the first round. Mullins (3-10, two KO’s) last fought in 2010 when he was knocked out in the first round by Perry Ballard in November 2010 in Fairfax, VA.

The co-feature bout marks the return of DC lightweight Ty Barnett, who has not fought in the Beltway region since he fought two bouts in Salisbury, MD in 2010. This will also be just the third time in Barnett’s pro career that he has battled in DC and his first since 2007. Barnett (18-2-1, 12 KO’s) has lost two of his last four–both by knockout. This includes his last bout — a third-round KO by undefeated Andrey Klimov on May 14 in Carson, CA. (more…)

Sturm-Zbik heats up

By Wolfgang Schiffbauer

Their April 13 fight is billed as “Bad Blood” and bad blood it was when WBA Super World Middleweight Champion Felix Sturm, 33, and former WBC World Middleweight Champion Sebastian Zbik, 29, came face-to-face for the first time at today’s press conference at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany, the venue of their fight. After the usual introductions, Zbik (30-1, 10 KOs) took the stage: “I’m glad to be here. It was about time that Felix grew some balls and took this challenge. I’m a real fighter and come April 13, I’ll win the championship.”

Sturm (36-2-2, 16 KOs) responded quickly: “Well, I’m happy that you finally grew some balls.” He then looked at Zbik and continued: “Tell me again how you became a world champion? You won the interim title, right? Which is nothing more than a Mickey Mouse title. And whom did you beat to become the full champ? No one, right. They awarded you the title. And well, you lost it again in your very first defense. So why do you disrespect me and my former opponents?” (more…)

Shaw explains why he killed WBC webcast

The live webcast on WBCBOXING.TV, that was scheduled to show Daniel Geale vs. Osumanu Adama for free, was being shown around the world against the agreement of Gary Shaw Productions, forcing the stream to be cut off in the U.S. and on the WBCBOXING.TV website.

Gary Shaw states, “The WBC has violated the agreement that was set in place to show the stream live in the U.S .for free. Because the WBC opened up the feed to the World, GSP had to kill the signal. The WBC website was only given permission to stream the feed in the U.S. and opening of the signal to the World created problems. On behalf of GSP, we apologize for the confusion.”

Adama ready to challenge Geale

By Bill Hillmann

USBA champion Osumanu Adama (20-2, 15KOs) is the most highly-rated unknown middleweight in the world. Since Adama’s exciting UD loss to Donovan George (22-1-1, 19KOs) in 2010 on Showbox, the Ghanaian has gone on a run of terror. He signed with his manager Wasfi Tolaymat and Cynthia Tolaymat’s CFC Promotions. “I could see that he was a warrior, if can he fight this good against George,” Wasfi told Fightnews. “And he was very nice when we met him. I think maybe we can help this guy. Maybe we can help him be champion!”

Adama also began to train with former Ghanaian cruiserweight journeymen Joseph Owinongya. Owinongya trains at a garage gym in Joliet, Illinois. He decided to test Adama’s commitment to being a champion and drove him twenty miles to Bolingbrook. Owinongya dropped him off and told Adama, “Run back to the gym”. Adama did as he was told. Then they began to train. “I do it to break him down, but now after running that far he is still strong,” Owinongya said. Owinongya had some other ideas; he makes Adama push his mid-size van around a parking lot for half-hour stints. (more…)
