Margarito, Rios training in Mexico

By Francisco Salazar

With all the traveling that Robert Garcia has done in the last couple of weeks, you would think he is accumulating frequent flyer miles.

Garcia confirmed to Fightnews.com on Friday night that he will be training super welterweight contender Antonio Margarito in Mexico City and not in Oxnard, CA. He also confirmed that lightweight world title holder Brandon Rios will join him in one of the largest metropolitan cities in the world. (more…)

By Joe Koizumi

Fast-punching Japanese left hooker Akira Yaegashi (15-2, 8 KOs), 105, impressively captured the WBA minimum belt as he gamely exchanged punches, overwhelmed defending champ Pornsawan Porpramook (23-4-1, 16 KOs), 105, Thailand, with crisp counters and finally caught the fading titlist with a fusillade of punches to prompt the referee’s halt at 2:38 of the tenth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

The official tallies after the ninth were as follows: Pier Luigi Poppi (Italy) and Silvestre Abainza (Philippines) both 88-83, and Ruben Garcia (US) 87-84, all in favor of Yaegashi. The referee was Erkki Meronen (Finland) who made a brilliant stoppage of the defending titlist, the timing of which looked so perfect that there’s no complaint even from the ex-champ’s corner.

Donaire moving up to 122

By Mike Bernier

Shortly after Nonito ‘The Filipino Flash’ won a unanimous lopsided decision over Omar ‘El Hucacan’ Narvaez, Top Rank held a short press conference at ringside. Both Donaire, draped in his WBO and WBC bantamweight belts, and Narvaez surrounded by his team spoke with the media. “He knew exactly how powerful I am,” said Donaire. “One punch would have taken him out.” Narvaez was happy to fight defensively and only averaged about 25 punches per round (bantamweight average is 60). Robert Garcia, Donaire’s trainer, instructed his fighter in the corner between rounds to hit the body and land his left hook, but Narvaez fought a defensive fight. Garcia said, “He [Narvaez] didn’t want to win rounds, he didn’t even try. He’s a two time world champion and we expected more.” (more…)

Siyo retains SA title in :40

By Ron Jackson

In a complete mismatch Luzuko Siyo smashed Sebelomzi Zimela to defeat in 40 seconds of the first round to retain his South African junior flyweight title at the Orient Theatre in East London on Sunday afternoon. The number ten ranked Zimela (48.70kg) was never in the fight as Siyo (48.70kg) attacked from the bell throwing big shots to the body and within seconds the challenger went down on one knee. He managed to make it to his feet as referee Andile Matakane gave him a standing eight count. Zimela was still on rubbery legs as the champion backed him up before landing a sweeping left hook to the jaw that sent him flat on his back on the canvas. The referee did not pick up the count and waved the fight off immediately. (more…)

Hawk returns with victory

By Sam DiTusa

The new and improved Shawn Hawk (22-1-1, 17 KOs) returned to the ring Thursday evening at the Coeur d’Alene Casino in Worley, Idaho sporting a new physique and dedication taking taking a ten round split decision over Otis “Triple OG” Griffin (23-9-2, 9 KOs) in the main event. Hawk who formerly fought at the Cruiserweight limit of 200 lbs tipped the scale at 173 looking fit and trim. The fight with Griffin was filled with big voids in action, however, and Hawk’s split decision victory was greeted with displeasure from the sellout crowd. Hawk displayed his piston like jab throughout, but chose to fight strategically rather then with the brawling, two-fisted style which has made him a Northwest favorite. (more…)

Narvaez happy with performance

“I think it went very well defensively, but I did not attack enough to win,” said WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez after suffering his first career loss Saturday night against WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire. “Neither of us wanted to make a mistake because in this kind of fight it can be fatal.

“It was a tough fight,” said WBO light heavyweight champion Marco Huck (34-1, 25 KOs) after breaking down and knocking out Rogelio Rossi with a big right to the head in the sixth round on Saturday night in Ludwigsburg, Germany. “I had twelve rounds to break him down and I needed six. I’m happy with the victory.”

Rossi was down four times in the fight, plus one additional knockdown after a shot coming after the bell in round four, for which Huck was deducted two points. “In the heat of the moment I didn’t hear the bell,” Huck explained. Rossi was down and out for several minutes after the particularly brutal knockout, causing some tense moments. “I couldn’t enjoy the victory until I knew he was fine,” Huck said. “He went down hard and I was relieved when he got back up.” (more…)

Pornsawan-Yaegashi tomorrow

By Joe Koizumi

Preoccupation is sometimes dangerous in our expectation. Before the WBA minimum champ Pornsawan Porpramook (23-3-1, 16 KOs), a cagey veteran from Thailand, arrived here in Tokyo a week ago, our experts and aficionados as well had expected a high possibility of Japanese challenger Akira Yaegashi (14-2, 7 KOs) winning the belt at the Korakuen Hall tomorrow (Monday). Pornsawan, however, greatly impressed our press people with his energetic workout and power-punching at the public workout. The muscular champ had battled some 300 Muay-thai bouts, winning more than 280 to his credit prior to his entry into the paid ranks. In his second bout in the international style fighting Pornsawan quickly acquired the PABA (Pan Asian Boxing Association) minimum belt, having kept it sixteen times. (more…)

McGuinness stops Gaudet

By David Baggs / Fightnews Canada

Orangeville, Ontario’s Logan McGuinness captured the vacant NABA super featherweight title with an impressive 11th round stoppage of former world title challenger Benoit Gaudet on Saturday night at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. Time of the stoppage was 1:56. Gaudet employeed the same strategy as in the Humberto Soto fight, constant movement, stopping only long enough to fire off a combination or two, before retreating. While not hurting McGuinness, it did pile up the points. McGuinness, cut over the left eye as early as round 2, was forced to chase, trying to cut off the ring against his fleet footed opponent. McGuinness (16-0-1, 8 KOs) found success in the later rounds, coming out on top of most most exchanges and hurting a tiring Gaudet. McGuinness, behind on the scorecards, finally caught up to Gaudet (24-3, 10 KOs) in round 11, dropping him with a left hook. Gaudet was able to make it to his feet but in no condition to continue. Referee Dave Dunbar wisely stopped the contest giving McGuinness the biggest victory of his career so far. (more…)

Nijem aims for finish fights

UFC 137 is LIVE on PPV Oct. 29!

Simply put, it was a rookie mistake. On June 4th in the season 13 final of The Ultimate Fighter, Ramsey Nijem fouled up his UFC debut with a first round TKO loss to Tony Ferguson. Nijem got too excited, said goodbye to his gameplan and just started exchanging punches with Ferguson. Even the best of fighters forget themselves the first time they’re in the Octagon, especially in the main event. But the key to a fighter’s future is to recognize the slip up and learn from it, and Nijem has done just that . . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com
