Boxing Result

Scott Harrison returns with KO

Former WBO featherweight champion Scott Harrison (26-2-2, 15 KOs) returned to the ring for the first time since 2005 and had little problem stopping previously unbeaten Hungarian 18-year-old Gyorgy Mizsei Jr (7-1, 3 KOs) in a lightweight bout on Friday night at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, Scotland. The 34-year-old Harrison, who was stripped of his world title after his life unraveled due to the ravages of alcoholism, dropped the very slim Mizsei with body shots three times in round two. The bout was waved off after Harrison dropped Mizsei again in round four. Time was 1:30.

Super featherweight John Simpson (23-9, 10 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over Paul Appleby (18-4, 11 KOs) in a bout for the BBBofC Celtic belt. Simpson dropped Appleby twice in round six.

Filipino feastin’ with Mark Munoz

UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II is LIVE on PPV Saturday, July 7 at 7 PM PT/10 PM ET

If the UFC ever hosts an eating contest, Mark Munoz could well emerge as a frontrunner. No joke. Especially if sushi or Filipino cuisine is on the menu. Born and raised by Filipino parents who both excel at cooking, it’s no wonder that Munoz himself can throw down inside of the kitchen and make a mean Chicken Adobo, along with a wide array of other dishes. Though he fights at 185 pounds, Munoz said he can pack away massive amounts of food in a single session and could easily walk around at 230 pounds if he wasn’t training for a fight. But much of the Oklahoma State University graduate’s preferred grub will have to wait until after his July 11 main event (UFC on FUEL TV 4) against unbeaten Chris Weidman (8-0). In a recent interview, Munoz breaks down some of his favorite Filipino dishes and the diet that helps the former 205er make the tight cut to middleweight . . .

Espinoza-Cota battle to majority draw

Report and photos by Felipe Leon

After more than three decades of presenting professional boxing in “America’s Finest City” San Diego, CA, 2012 California Hall of Fame promoter Bobby DePhilippis has never cancelled a show. He wasn’t going to start now. After the original main event, an attractive matchup between junior welterweights Silverio “Chamaco” Ortiz and Emilio Bojorquez fell to the wayside last week because of an Ortiz hand injury and potential replacement Pavel Miranda was considered a little too tough for Emilio by Team Bojorquez, Bobby D. along with matchmaker Jorge Marron and Event Director Gabriel Barron scraped together a five bout fight card witnessed understandably by a sparse crowd but worthy of mention. In the new main event, Tijuana veteran warrior Gerardo “Soldado” Espinoza (28-13-2, 26KOs) and Mexicali, Mexico’s Jose Cota (12-7-3, 4KOs) battled to a majority draw in a super featherweight six rounder.

Kostecki will stay in jail; Roy will fight undefeated Pawel Glazewski in Poland

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Legendary Roy Jones Junior (55-8, 40 KO), four divison world champion and Jameel McCline (41-11, 24 KOs), four-time heavyweight contender have no doubts how their fights will end this Saturday in Lodz (Poland). “I will knock out Pawel,” said Roy, who just learned that Kostecki will not be released from jail and will fight #8 WBC rated light heavyweight Pawel Glazewski (17-0, 4 KOs).

“I will teach this young Polish buck a lesson this Saturday, that you don’t make a old lion angry. Maybe he is a great talent, but he still is not a great boxer,” said McCline about 23-year old Artur Szpilka (11-0, 9 KO).

“Clash of the Titans,” will be featuring fights of Roy Jones Jr vs. Pawel Glazewski, Jameel McCline vs. Artur Szpilka and Nate Campbell vs. Krzysztof Szot, will be available worldwide, outside Poland on boks.ipla.tv/en/.

No replacement foe; Povetkin will not fight July 14

WBA Heavyweight Champion Alexander Povetkin will not be fighting at all on July 14 in Hamburg. The entire event at the Alsterdorfer Sporthalle has been called off due to an injury sustained by the mandatory challenger Hasim Rahman. “The Rock” had to pull out after an operation to remove a cyst on his right hand and it was decided that find a suitable replacement fighter in such a short space of time is unrealistic. Chris Meyer, Managing Director of Sauerland Event, stated “All of us were looking forward to the event. But it is our responsibility to deliver world class boxing to the spectators inside the arena and the audience at home in front of their TVs. Therefore, after hearing from the injury of Alexander’s opponent, we had to cancel the whole show.” Whether Hasim Rahman will remain the mandatory challenger of the WBA, lies in the hands of the association. Tickets bought for the event can be returned at the place of purchase.

Ex-champ Clinton Woods: American boxing rife with drugs and steroids

Former IBF light heavyweight champion Clinton Woods says he’s not surprised that former opponent Antonio Tarver and other prominent American boxers are testing dirty. “I fought in America three times and the testing situation was always joke,” Woods told the Sheffield Star. “In three fights, I had one little test and was told it was only for marijuana. It’s always annoyed me how rife American boxing is with drugs and steroids, but at least they are cracking down on it now and people are being caught. The trouble is that people there will only get fined pocket money.”

Klitschko, Thompson heats up

IBF/WBA/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko says Tony “The Tiger” Thompson should stop talking about an injury he claims hampered him in their first fight and show some respect. “He got knocked out, that’s it,” said Wlad on a conference call Thursday to promote their world title clash on July 7 at the Stade de Suisse in Bern, Switzerland, to be televised live in 160 countries worldwide including the U.S.

“In boxing it’s always tough,” stated Wlad. “You break your hand, you tear your muscles or tendons, which can happen in a fight and I have experienced it in my life multiple times, but nobody’s interested in that. Everyone is interested in the end result. Nobody is interested in what was in-between.”

“I really was on one leg,” insisted Thompson earlier on the call. “I had a torn meniscus in my knee and unfortunately I wasn’t able to train to my full abilities and prepare for the heavyweight championship of the world. This time we were able to prepare and with a healthy body we actually have a legitimate shot.” (more…)

No Vitali fight in Kiev

Looks like possibly the last boxing match of WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko will not take place in his hometown of Kiev. Klitschko wanted to fight either September 1 or September 8 at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium, but apparently the venue isn’t being made available to K2 to stage the event there. It has been alleged in the Ukrainian media that this is politically motivated since the politically active Vitali is in opposition to some of the current officials in power. Manuel Charr is the frontrunner to be Vitali’s opponent wherever the fight ends up.
