Bad night for official scorers last Saturday in Mexico. Not only did ringside officials blow the decision in the WBC Youth bantamweight title fight between Tomoki Kameda and Stephane Jamoye Saturday night in Mazatlan (originally announced as a draw, then amended an hour later to a win for Kameda) as previously reported, officials also botched the result of Saturday’s IBF featherweight eliminator between Franky Leal and Miguel “Ranita” Gonzzlez in Mexicali. Despite suffering two knockdowns in the first round, hometown favorite Leal was announced as controversial a split decision winner. That result was later changed to a draw.

On Saturday, August 28, WBC Youth bantamweight champion Stephane Jamoye, from Belgium, fought Tomoki Kameda, from Japan, in Mazatlan, Mexico. The fight was very close and exciting.

Unstoppable Onslaught

Giovanni Segura KO8 Ivan Calderon

By Graham Houston

The long unbeaten run of Ivan Calderon had to end sometime, and as often happens when a long-reigning champion loses, the finish was brutal and dramatic. Calderon gave his all, but he was a physically and mentally broken-down fighter when he sank to one knee to be counted out in the eighth round against Giovanni Segura in their 108-pound championship unification bout in Puerto Rico on Saturday.

After 19 consecutive title bouts in two weight classes without a defeat, Calderon’s skills and great experience just weren’t enough to overcome the relentless pressure and brutal body attack of the implacable aggressor from Mexico. (more…)

Douglas halts Urban at the Boat

By Shamus Young at ringside

Cruiserweight Jason “Friday the 13th” Douglas improved to 8-2 with a 7th round TKO of Brent Urban, 6-3-1, at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, WA. Both men were free swinging sluggers who connected almost at will. The difference in the fight proved to be in the footwork. Urban waded forward squared up. Douglas fought from a conventional stance which allowed him to punch straighter and harder and win most of the exchanges. The damage added up and in the 7th of a scheduled 8 round fight, Urban stopped defending himself and was battered about the head until referee Paul Field intervened. Time of the stoppage was 1:47.

In the co-main event, Lightweight Francisco “Paco” Reyes used advantages in reach, hand speed, and accuracy to dominate Heder Rivas en route to a 6 round unanimous decision. Scores were 59-55 and 60-54 twice. Fightnews had it 59-55. Reyes improves to 6-1 and Heder falls to 6-2. (more…)
