Hanks defeats Escalera Jr

Story and photos by Przemek Garczarczyk

After 10 very entertaining rounds, Joe Hanks (17-0, 12 KO) defeated (somewhat surprisingly all the judges gave Hanks all the rounds) Alfredo Escalera jr. (18-4, 12 KO). Fans of heavyweight boxing during the first annual “Knock Out Cancer” Joe DeGuardia open-air event in the Bronx Hunts Point Produce Market, saw more power exchanges in one round of this main event fight that in 12 rounds of many recent heavyweight bouts. “Alfredo was a very tough guy today. He was fearless, caught me with good shots but I have a good chin – now people know this for sure. I was happy with my performance. I sustained my effort through full ten rounds. I didn’t know Escalera’s name before, I know it now,” said new IBA International champion. (more…)

Khan KOs Judah in 5

By Andreas Hale and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

In a jr welterweight unification clash, WBA champion Amir Khan (26-1, 18 KOs) scored a dominating fifth round KO against IBF champion Zab Judah (41-7, 28 KOs) on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Khan was in command from the outset and finished Judah with a right hand to the belt line. Time was 2:47. Judah claimed the last punch was a low blow, but referee Vic Drakulich didn’t buy it and counted Judah out.

Unbeaten super middleweight Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillen (25-0, 19 KOs) brutalized late replacement for the injured Tarvis Simms, Jason Lehoullier (21-6-1, 8 KOs) before the towel was mercifully thrown in round 5. Time of stoppage was 1:38

In a heavyweight rematch, Bryant Jennings (9-0) soundly thumped Theron Johnson (5-6) for 6 rounds and earned a unanimous decision victory. Scores were 60-53 (twice) and 59-54.

Undefeated featherweight Gary Russell Jr. continued his rise up the ranks with a one-sided unanimous decision over the game, but overmatched, Eric Estrada. Russell scored numerous combinations and dropped Estrada in the 7th. Scores were 80-71 across the board.

James Kirkland (29-1, 26 KOs) continued the road back to title contention as he starched Alexis Hloros (15-4-2) en route to a second round TKO victory. It was fun while it lasted as Hloros caught Kirkland with several right hands early. But “The Mandingo Warrior” was far too strong for his Mt. Clemens opponent and dropped Hloros twice in the first round and polished him off with a missile right hook in the opening moments of the second. Kirkland is now 2-0 with Ann Wolfe back in his corner and proves to still be an entertaining fighter to watch. Time of stoppage was :25.

Ronny Rios blitzed Noe Lopez, Jr. with a ruthless body attack and scored a 1st round TKO victory in a scheduled 8 round junior lightweight affair. Rios dropped Lopez with a straight right to the body seconds into the bout and sucked the fight out of Lopez. Another brutal body shot later and it was all she wrote. Time of stoppage was 1:12.

Golden Boy split site PPV set

By Francisco Salazar

Looks like Golden Boy Promotions will get their wish of a split-pay per view televised card on Saturday, September 17th. Unbeaten Saul Alvarez is scheduled to take on Alfonso Gomez at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on the same day that Floyd Mayweather challenges Victor Ortiz for Ortiz’s world title belt in Las Vegas. A press conference is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on Tuesday to formally announce the Alvarez-Gomez bout. Alvarez (37-0-1, 27 KO’s) defended his version of the 154-pound world title belt last month with a 12 round stoppage victory over Ryan Rhodes. Gomez (23-4-2, 12 KO’s) was scheduled to fight Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. in December, but suffered a torn ligament in his left elbow a few weeks prior tom the scheduled bout. He was able to heal up and recently stopped Calvin Green in the second round at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in Cabazon, CA in May. Both cards in Las Vegas and Los Angeles will center around Mexican Independence Day celebrations.

Fury dethrones Chisora

By Karl Freitag

In a highly charged grudge match between unbeaten heavyweights, 6’9 Tyson Fury (15-0, 10 KOs) scored a clear twelve round unanimous decision over WBO #13 Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora (14-1, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Wembley Arena in London. Fury pretty much had his way in round one, but Chisora landed some big shots round two that had Fury hurt and holding on. Fury got back on track in round three while Chisora missed wildly with big power shots. Fury’s combination punching won rounds four and five while Chisora only threw one shot at a time. Chisora, who came in a career high of 261 lbs, seemingly ran out of gas as the fight progressed. “Del Boy” made a furious last stand with a big barrage of punches in round ten, but Fury dominated the rest of the fight. Scores were 117-112, 117-112, 118-111. Fury wins the British and Commonwealth championships. WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko had expressed interest in possibly facing the winner.

IBF #14 rated jr welterweight Ashley “Treasure” Theophane (30-4-1, 8 KOs) wore down Jason “The Power” Cook (28-4-1, 14 KOs) and got a tenth round KO. Time was :43. Theophane retained his British light welterweight championship.

Unbeaten middleweight Ryan Toms (9-0, 4 KOs) scored an impressive fourth round KO over “Phat” Pat McAleese (12-2-1, 2 KOs). McAleese was down three times in round three. Time of the stoppage was 2:44. Toms retained his British Southern Area title.

In a war, unbeaten jr middleweight Peter Vaughan (3-0-1, 1 KO) outpointed previously undefeated Phill Fury (9-1, 2 KOs) over eight by a score 78-75.

Otake halts Maruyama in one

By Joe Koizumi

Fast-rising bantam prospect, JBC#2 Hidenori Otake (16-1-3, 9 KOs), 121.75, displayed a fine performance in pulverizing Yuji Maruyama (11-11-1, only one KO), 123, at 1:30 of the first round in a scheduled eight on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. As they cautiously probed each other, Otake landed a smashing right to the button of the taller opponent, who badly hit the deck with a thud. It looked so picture-perfect as a Miguel-Garcia-like right shot in Mikey’s demolition of Rafael Guzaman this June. Maruyama very barely regained his feet, but Otake’s follow-up prompted the third man to call a well-received halt. Otake had better test his fists against top-notch opponents. Promoter: Noguchi Promotions.

Fury-Chisora grudge clash today

Fury: I'll snap his chin off his body

Live PPV telecast today at 3PM ET, noon PT

Unbeaten 6’9 , 260lb heavyweight Tyson Fury (14-0, 10 KOs) has been touted as the heir apparent to the Klitschko Brothers. Today we’ll find out if he really is. Fury faces Dereck “Del Boy” Chisora in a PPV grudge showdown tonight at Wembley Arena in London. While both fighters have similar records, Chisora (14-0, 9 KOs) has the more accomplished resume, winning both the British and Commonwealth heavyweight championships, as well as twice being scheduled to challenge Wladimir Klitschko, before having the fights fall through, through no fault of his own. Klitschko has stated that a defense against the winner could be in the cards.

The 6’1 Chisora is a slight betting favorite at -138 according to bet365.com, with Fury backers getting odds of +110.

The build up to the fight has been nothing less than heated. After Chisora claimed Fury had no heart, Fury lashed out at Chisora, saying “If it means killing you in the ring, that’s what I’ll do. To beat me, you will have to kill me because I’m prepared to die in the ring. I’m putting it all on the line. I’m going to snap your chin off your body. You are an arrogant little prick – I’ll smash your face in when we fight! You are a shithouse, as well.” (more…)

Khan-Judah Preview

By Francisco Salazar
Photo: Chris Cozzone

Even when Amir Khan was unbeaten, there was a buzz surrounding the talented English-born fighter. Speed, power, height, and most importantly skills were the assets Khan possessed. With the way Khan was going through his opponents, it was not a question of who he was going to challenge for a world title belt. It was more of when was he going to put a world title belt around his waist. Then, it all came crashing to a momentary stop. It was the night of September 6th, 2008, when he was stopped by also-unbeaten and hard-hitting Breidis Prescott in the first round. Suddenly, there were the criticisms about Khan’s defense or his footwork were going to be his Achilles heel (no pun intended) towards a world title opportunity. So he did what any fighter would have done, especially in the last three to four years. Go across the pond and enlist the services of trainer Freddie Roach. Instead of a hard-hitting 140-pound fighter, Khan will attempt to solidify his standing as the top fighter in the junior welterweight division as he takes on Zab Judah tonight in a unification bout at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.

Thai 154 pound prospect Patomsuk Pathompothong (12-1-1, 8 KOs) scored a clear ten round decision over hot favorite Heath Ellis (14-2-1, 7 KOs) at the Sunshine Skating Centre in Sunshine, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on Friday. The powerful Thai had the skillful Aussie on the back move as he boxed aggressively and continually cut off the ring and connected with power shots to the head and body of his fleet footed opponent. At the conclusion the scores were, Aneeka Williams 94-96, Ignatius Missailidis 95-95, and Andrew Campbell 94-96. The manager of Patomsuk–Jimmy Chaichotchuang said, “Patomsuk is only a welterweight boxer but dominated Heath Ellis who is highly regarded. Also Patomsuk has a very good trainer, Rian Munton, in the corner. Patomsuk served several years in Bangkok prison and started his professional career when was given day leave to box on my promotions. Bernard Hopkins served time in prison before becoming a boxing great and he is an inspiration to Patomsuk.” (more…)

Burgos victorious in Ontario, CA

By Rocco Morales at ringside

The main event of the evening from the Ontario Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California, featured recent WBC featherweight title challenger, Juan Carlos Burgos (27-1, 19KO) take on rugged veteran Gilberto Sanchez Leon (29-11-2, 11KO). An exciting fight on paper failed to actually materialize in the ring as neither fighter seemed willing to step up the action over the level of a lackluster sparring session drawing sporadic boos from the capacity crowd. Burgos, who had won his last four non title bouts by knockout victory, did not appear interested in getting Leon out early but, rather, did just enough to win the majority of the rounds to secure a unanimous decision victory. Judges scored the fight 100-90, 97-93 and 98-92, all in favor of Burgos. With the victory, the WBC ranked #7 featherweight in the world stays in title contention but appears to be little threat to the top fighters in the division and would not likely fare well against WBC champion Jhonny Gonzales, WBA champion Chris John or even WBO champion Orlando Salido.
