Ambunda retains WBO Africa title

By Ron Jackson

Paulus Ambunda from Namibia retained his WBO Africa bantamweight title on a unanimous points decision against former South African bantamweight champion Klaas Mboyane at the Windhoek Country Club on Friday night. Ambunde 13-0; 7 and Mboyane 13-9-2; 7 fought toe-toe for the first five rounds which were possibly shaded by the champion. However, the South African did well to come back and possibly takes rounds six to eight. The champion who was much bigger and stronger than Mboyane finished strongly earning a well deserved decision. The judges scorecards were widely in favour of the homeboy which was not a true reflection of the fight. The referee was Thabo Spampool of South Africa and the tournament was presented by Nestor Tobias of Sunshine Promotions.

McEwan-Perez tonight

By Francisco Salazar

Another night of youth versus experience will take place tonight at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, CA as unbeaten Middleweight Craig McEwan will take on Danny Perez. The main event bout is scheduled for 10 rounds. McEwan (18-0, 10 KO’s) stopped Kris Andrews in his last fight in April and will face his toughest opponent to date in his young career. Although Perez (34-7, 17 KO’s) has lost his last two bouts, he is still a dangerous boxer who is hoping to put the first blemish on McEwan’s record. Featherweight Charles Huerta (13-1, 7 KO’s) will take on upset-minded and hard-hitting Jonathan Arias in a six round bout. Huerta has won his last two bouts, while Arias (10-6, 8 KO’s) has won his last six bouts in a row. In an attractive eight round bout, Welterweights Keith Thurman (12-0, 11 KO’s) and Stalinn Lopez (7-0, 3 KO’s) will square off in a battle of unbeaten fighters. Three more bouts will round out the card. Oscar De La Hoya and Bantamweight contender Abner Mares are scheduled to attend. Tickets start at $35 and could be purchased by calling 1-877-711-2946. Doors open at 6PM, with first bell scheduled for 7PM. Golden Boy Promotions will promote the card in association with Ringside Ticket. Telefutura will televise on their popular “Solo Boxeo Tecate” series.

Full Report: Russell-Pastrana

By Francisco Salazar
Photos: Big Joe Miranda

Former Olympian and unbeaten featherweight Gary Russell is slowly convincing the boxing world that he could be a force to be reckoned with in the future. Based on his performance against a former world champion, that future might be sooner rather than later. Russell scored a first round stoppage over faded world champion Mauricio Pastrana in the first round of a scheduled six round bout at Club Nokia at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, CA. The bout headlined a five-bout “Fight Night Club” card, presented by Golden Boy Promotions. Russell, who fought for the United States in 2008 in Beijing, was coming off a second round knockout over Rodrigo Aranda last month at the same venue. However, Russell was facing Pastrana, who would pose on paper as a significant step up in class. Although Pastrana is not the fighter he once was, he is still a dangerous puncher. That was evident three and a half years ago against Antonio Escalante, whom he knocked out despite being down on the scorecards. Prior to the his fight against Russell, Pastrana had lost seven of his previous eight bouts. Click here for more plus photos

Jorge Linares takes on Rocky Juarez

A failed five-time world title challenger coming off two straight losses matched up against a former two-time champ proclaimed to be worth his weight in gold – that is, until he was KO’d in one last year – might not top the list of the year’s most important matches.

But it just might make a damn good fight.

That is, if one guy can break a slump and a tendency to throw away the first half of a fight; and the other pug, put behind him, a devastating kayo loss and a bad showing in his comeback . . . Click here for more
