In main event action in the latest installment of “Locked ‘N Loaded” from the Ontario Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California, Jonathon “Lil Thunder” Arellano (10-0-1, 2KO) put on an impressive boxing display to win the vacant WBC Intercontinenantal super bantamweight title over the previously undefeated Michael Ruiz, Jr. (8-1-1, 3KO).

El Harrak-Hirsch ends in draw

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

In a very competitive main event bout, super welterweights Said El Harrak and late sub Tony Hirsch fought to a six round split decision draw on Friday night at the Commerce Casino in Commerce, CA.. Hirsch, who took the fight on a week’s notice when Roberto Garcia allegedly fell off the card, started well in the first round. El Harrak (11-1-1, 5 KO’s) was at his best on the inside in the first two rounds, staying compact and landing the more effective punches. Hirsch (12-4-2, 6 KO’s) used his reach to land counter an lead right hands to the head of El Harrak. Both fighters had their moments in the final round, but El Harrak looked like the busier fighter, landing shots to Hirsch’s body. Hirsch and El Harrak each had a judge score the bout 58-56 in their favor, while the third judge scored the bout 57-57. Fightnews.com scored the bout 57-57 as well.

Fonfara TKOs Spearman in 2

By Przemek Garczarczyk at ringside

“Jose Spearman wanted to talk. I wanted to hit,” said 23-year-old Andrzej Fonfara (19-2, 10 KOs) after his easy TKO win at 1:20 of the second round over Jose Spearman (28-18, 11 KOs). Spearman, who in the first couple of minutes wanted to engage Fonfara in some exchanges, didn’t want to have any part of the Polish fighter’s combinations and power in the second round, going to his knees when Fonfara’s right hook connected with his face. “I wanted more, I wanted a real test, but unfortunately Spearman was not up to the task,” said the visibly disappointed Fonfara.

Hardy targets Lewis after KO

Simeon “Candy Man” Hardy is calling out former world champion Andrew “Six Heads” Lewis after demolishing veteran Winston Pompey 30 seconds of the second round of the scheduled six round contest.

He slipped a wild right from Pompey and countered with a text book left hook that sent the veteran crashing to the canvas. Pompey tried to beat the count but fell again to the canvas.

Cherry-Aiken: no decision

By Phil Doherty at ringside

For a sport so worried about its future, boxing may find the brightest hope hidden in its storied past. Long ago, boxing promoters promoted fights. Matchmakers made matchups. Managers managed fighters and fighters, well, you get the idea. It was a simpler time when your job title defined your role. And despite the nefarious reach of underworld influence, it actually worked. It produced consistently compelling fights that fans (gasp!) came out to see in droves.

Panther Promotions revisited this business model once again tonight from The Seminole Hard Rock Live with some surprising and surprisingly good results. Their seven-bout show, coincidentally titled “Future Superstars,” provided the large and lively crowd an edge-of-your seat ride with more twists and turns than a squirming worm about to become bait.

Tada, Fujiok, Ando, Jelena win

By Joe Koizumi

A female tripleheader and a WBC final eliminator took place on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan.

Unbeaten WBA 105-pound champ Etsuko Tada (9-0-2, 2 KOs), 104.25, a fast-moving southpaw, kept her belt for the sixth time when she pounded out a nearly shutout decision (100-90 twice and 98-92) over ex-WBC 108-pound ruler Nongmuay Kokietgym (10-3-3, no KO), 104.5, Thailand, over ten hot rounds.

WBC 105-pound titlist Naoko Fujioka (7-0, 5 KOs), Japan, displayed a Naseem-Hamed style and freely battered official challenger Kanittha Kokietgym (13-4, 4 KOs), Thailand, from all angles en route to a well-received TKO win at 0:37 of the ninth session. It’s the hard-hitting Fujioka’s initial defense since she dethroned Mexican Anabel Ortiz this May.

Slick-punching Japanese girl Mari Ando (8-3, 4 KOs), 101.5, impressively acquired the vacant WBA light-minimumweight belt by winning a unanimous verdict (98-92 twice and 97-93) over Amara Kokietgym (7-2-1, 3 KOs), 101.5, Thailand, over ten. The WBA newly established the 102-pound category, and Ando became the very first champ through this elimination bout.

Ex-WBC 130-pound ruler, Canadian Jelena Mrdjenovich (25-8-1, 12 KOs), 128.75, showed her superior speed and skills in defeating Raika Fujin (22-7-1, 9 KOs), a game Japanese veteran, by a unanimous nod (96-94, 98-92 and 97-93) in a WBC final eliminator to decide the official challenger over ten.

Ward injured, Super Six postponed

Carl Froch’s Super Six final showdown with Andre Ward in Atlantic City on October 29 has been postponed after Andre Ward suffered an injury in sparring. Ward sustained an injury to his eye that required seven stitches after a sparring session on Thursday evening. The Showtime 360 fight camp were filming the session and made the trip to the hospital where he was advised by the doctor that he would not be fit to fight on October 29. The fight will be rearranged with a likely date in early December.

Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn said the postponement will only make the Nottingham star more determined to beat Ward. “Obviously it is frustrating. Carl’s camp has gone perfectly and we were ready to unify the titles on October 29,” said Hearn. “Carl is in the shape of his life but he is a true professional and will take this in his stride and be ready for victory on a date given in 2011.”

Fonfara, who has won six straight fights by KO since moving to the light heavyweight division, was not fazed by the fact, that name of his opponent was changed twice during his training camp. “It made no difference to me, because I was working hard, getting myself in the best possible shape. Just a change of tactics, but my trainer knew what to do to make me ready. It’s satisfying to win by KO like I’m winning recently, but I never assume it will happen – just doing my thing and waiting for a chance,” said Fonfara, who is trained at the Chicago Boxing Club by Sam Colonna, trainer of former top heavyweight contender Andrzej Gołota.
