Hopkins’ legacy continues

Story by Matt Richardson

At 46-years-old and as the oldest boxer to ever win a legitimate world title, light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins can be classified as many things.

But in his old age, one thing Hopkins can’t be called, at least in terms of discussing his fight on Saturday night against Chad Dawson (HBO pay-per-view, 9 PM ET) is dishonest . . . Click here for more

Tough test for Oosthuizen

By Ron Jackson

Rodney Berman of Golden Gloves Promotions has announced the bill for November 23 at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park with super middleweight Tommy Oosthuizen topping the card against Maxim Vlasov in an IBO title defence. The 23-year-old Oosthuizen (16-0-1, 11 KOs) who won the vacant belt in March this year and has made successful defences against William Gare and Aaron Pryor Jr faces a tough one against the 25-year-old Vlasov from Samara, Russia.

Vlasov (21-1, 11 KOs) suffered his only loss against Johannesburg based Malawian Isaac Chilemba in Februray this year despite having Chilemba down for two counts in the eighth round. However, since that loss he has scored impressive wins over Gennady Maximov (W8) and Gasan Gasanov (TKO8). (more…)

Tapales defeats Mubiru

By Joe Koizumi

Up-and-coming 19-year-old Filipino southpaw, OPBF#5 super-flyweight Marlon Tapales (19-1, 6 KOs), 117, impressively defeated Japan-based Ugandan Martin Mubiru (8-3, 5 KOs), 117, by a unanimous decision (97-89 and 96-90 twice) over ten hard-fought rounds on Sunday in Liloan, Cebu, Philippines. Tapales, who previously served as sparring partner for the current WBC 105-pound champ Kazuto Ioka in Japan, floored the game opponent with a left uppercut in the fourth and with a southpaw right hook in the sixth. Mubiru fought back hard, but Tapales was still fresh and ferocious enough to hurt the fading Ugandan down the stretch. Mubiru had been evaluated highly thanks to his upset eighth round stoppage of ex-Korean champ Big Yoo (AKA Hayato Kimura) last October, but Tapales proved too much for him chiefly because of his superior stamina in later rounds. Promoter: Wakee Salud.

Tye Fields gets 49th win

From Fightnews Canada

Edmonton-based heavyweight Tye Fields collected win number 49 Friday night with a 6th round TKO victory over the always tough Raphael Butler at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. Time of the stoppage was 2:37 of round six in their ten round main event on the KO Boxing-promoted card. The victory marked the Montana-born boxer’s fourth consecutive victory since last tasting defeat, improving his overall record to 49-4, 44 KOs). Butler, who took Canadian heavyweight champ Neven Pajkic the distance in a close slugfest just two bouts ago, simply didn’t have the power nor ring savvy to keep the 6’8 Fields timid or cautious at any point in the contest. He suffers his 11th defeat against 35 victories. (more…)

Guerrero wins IBF 115lb title

By Felipe Leon at ringside

In a war with more fireworks than a Chinese New Year, Rodrigo “Gato” Guerrero (16-3-1, 10KOs) exacted his revenge over San Antonio, TX’s Raul “Cobra” Martinez (28-2, 16KOs) with a unanimous six round technical decision to capture the vacant IBF super flyweight title on Saturday night at the Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Guerrero of Mexico City scored the harder punches through out the brawl, even dropping the Martinez with a straight left in the third round. Martinez held his own with slick boxing and quick combination punching but in the sixth, he suffered a cut over his right eye from a accidental head butt. The ringside doctor deemed he couldn’t continue. Tom Miller had it 59-54 while Marty Denkin and Chris Wilson saw it a much closer 57-56 for the new champ.

After 10 dominating rounds, Tijuana’s “Aztec Princess” Jackie Nava (25-4-3, 11KOs) treated her hometown fans to another win when she was awarded a landslide unanimous decision over over matched Soledad “Guerrera” Matthysse (9-3-1, 1KO). Nava scored with big rights that bloodied the nose of the Argentine and a constant attack to the body although the very tough Matthysse was the busier of the two. Official scores were 100-90 twice and 99-91. For more details and photos click here…
