Holmes outpoints Winslow

By Julian Burgower at ringside

Washington DC’s latest boxing event at the Renaissance Hotel solidified the current resurgence of the National Capital Regions’ stake of producing a hotbed of local talent. Recent success has included top-flight names such as Heavyweight hopeful Seth Mitchell, former Junior Welterweight Champion Lamont Peterson and brother Anthony, and most impressively 2008 Olympian Gary Russell Jr. The card brought a taste of Vegas to the event, complete with an Elvis impersonator greeting the fans ringside. Elvis’s presence in the building was fitting as nearly half of the participating warriors ended their night “All Shook Up,” with five first-round knockouts posted in a scheduled seven-bout card.

Heavyweight Donnell Holmes, 34-2-2 (29), posted a workman-like six-round decision victory over veteran opponent Maurice Winslow, 3-17-1 (3) in the main event, which unfortunately was anti-climatic after the string of knockouts made each act tougher to follow than the last. (more…)

Report/gallery: Casimero vs. Guevara

Ringside report and photos by Felipe Leon

Three important Mexican promoters, led by Erik “Terrible” Morales’ Box Latino in association with Promociones del Pueblo and HG Boxing, joined forces on Saturday night to present “Furia en Mazatlan (Fury in Mazatlan)” where IBF junior flyweight John Riel Casimero (17-2, 10 KOs) successfully defended his title against hometown hero Pedro Guevara (18-1-1, 13 KOs) by very close spit decision. The main event topped off a successful event held at the modern Mazatlan Convention Center in Mazatlan, Mexico, and televised live in Mexico by Televisa.

Casimero captured the title earlier this year by defeating Luis Lazarte in Argentina via 10th round TKO and now the world traveling Filipino from Cebu found his way to Mazatlan to defend it for the first time versus the IBF #4 ranked Guevara who was coming off an impressive performance versus Jose Guadalupe Martinez last May where he defended his NABF title for the second time.

Diego Magdaleno was told by Bob Arum and Top Rank that 2012 would be his year and after his performance on Saturday night, it looks like they were right. Fighting in his backyard at the Texas Station Hotel & Casino, the NABF Super Featherweight champion pleased the hometown crowd with a dominating performance that was punctuated with a 4th round TKO stoppage of Antonio Davis.

With the victory, Magdaleno put himself in position to fight for a world title by the end of 2012 — perhaps on the undercard of Manny Pacquiao’s November fight in Las Vegas. Based on his performance, it’s a title shot well earned. (more…)

Casimero retains IBF jr flyweight belt

After twelve close and hard fought rounds, IBF junior flyweight champion John Riel Casimero (17-2, 10KOs) retained his title versus hometown hero Pedro Guevara (18-1-1, 13KOs) with a split decision on Saturday night at the Mazatlan Convention Center in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. After surviving a first round flash knockdown, Guevara fought himself back into the fight with good boxing skills but Casimero was able to score with a one punch at a time attack. Casimero was the aggressor as he pushed Guevara to the perimeter of the round as he tried to box. Guevara was able to tighten it up at the end but Casimero took the decision with scores of 116-111 and 114-113 while one judge saw it for Guevara 114-113.

In quite possibly the best fight of the night, Mexican Arturo Santos (12-2, 4KOs) took a controversial unanimous decision over Khabir Suleymanov (13-3, 6KOs) for the vacant WBF super bantamweight title. Suleymanov took the early rounds despite a cut over his left eye. Santos warmed up in the middle and both went to war to close out the fight. Suleymanov was deducted two points, one in the sixth and another in the tenth. At the end, all three judges saw it a much to wide 116-110.

Flyweight WBF female champion Irma “Guerita” Sanchez (24-5-1, 7KOs) retained her title over the tough as nails Sharon Gaines (11-14-1, 3KOs) of Las Vega, NV. Sanchez of Guadalajara, Mexico, made it her fight by pushing the action on the inside. Gaines tried to box but Sanchez was to strong and was able to hurt Gaines a couple times in the ten round fight. Scores were 99-91 twice and 98-92. (more…)

Unbeaten NABF super featherweight champion Diego Magdaleno (23-0, 8 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over multi-time world title challenger Antonio Davis (29-7, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas. Magdaleno, rated #2 in the WBC, #2 by the WBA, #4 by the WBO and #7 by the IBF, launched a non-stop barrage of punches that got the stoppage from referee Joe Cortez just as round four ended. Official time was 2:59.

In a battle of unbeaten welterweights, hot prospect Jose Benevidez, Jr. (16-0, 13 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Javier Loya (7-1, 6 KOs). Referee Tony Weeks jumped in to protect Loya who was being battered on the ropes. Time was 1:41.

Notre Dame’s Mike Lee (10-0, 6 KOs) continued his unbeaten campaign with a stellar 2nd round TKO over unheralded Tyler Seever (13-12, 11 KOs). After a brief feeling out period in the first frame, “The Fighting Pride of the Irish” turned up the heat and dropped Seever with a chopping right hand in the second round. Smelling blood in the water, Lee pursued his still dazed opponent and leveled him with a 1-2 combination that dropped Seever hard to the canvas. Referee Russell Mora immediately called the fight at the 1:36 mark. (more…)

After getting deducted a point for his illegal tactic in the fourth Bathelemy, it only went downhill from there. In the fifth, during a clinch, Barthelemy locked into Grady’s neck with a vicious bite. After realizing the transaction referee Brian Stutts immediately disqualified Barthelemy.

Shimoda defeats Betos

By Joe Koizumi

Ex-WBA super-bantam champ, WBC#5/WBA#8 sharpshooting southpaw Akifumi Shimoda (26-3-1, 11 KOs), 124, proved he still belonged to the top-notch group as he dropped OPBF#11 durable Filipino Richard Betos (19-6-1, 7 KOs), 124, three times en route to a comfortably shutout decision (100-86, 100-87 and 100-88) over ten sizzling rounds on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. The upright lefty, 27, had forfeited his WBA throne to Rico Ramos via come-from-behind knockout defeat in Atlantic City last July, but decked a couple of convincing victories over ex-OPBF ruler Jonel Alibio (W10) and Mexican Azael Gonzalez (TKO10) on his comeback trail. Shimoda made good use of superior hand speed and took the initiative against the peek-a-boo stylist from the outset. The 5’7” Japanese sent him to the deck with smashing right-left combination in the second, fourth and sixth sessions. Sensing it was a matter of time, Shimada logically accelerated his attack to bring home the bacon early, but Betos, two years his junior and two inches shorter, stubbornly refused to go down again. What the ex-champ verified was his abundant stamina despite his failure to terminate the affair before the stipulated rounds. He furiously kept punching the fading opponent down the stretch to cast a question to the third man — “why don’t you stop it?”

Camacho Jr: It’s time to prove it’s Junior time!

Middleweight Hector Camacho Jr. has issued the following statement concerning his shock KO loss to Luis Grajeda last weekend in Mexico:

“I’d like to begin by apologizing to my family, my team, and most importantly my fans. My recent loss made it clear to me that I have a wonderful fan base. Your support during this tough time has been overwhelming and I greatly appreciate it.

“I have no excuses, honestly this loss was my fault. I have disrespected myself as well as the sport of boxing by not being disciplined and true to the sport that I love so much. I have been lazy by not committing like I should and I tried to rely on my ring generalship to win fights. I am not taking anything away from Luis Grajeda, he did what he was supposed to do and the better man won last Saturday. I realize that I need to take my career seriously, so it’s time to put childish things aside before I lose what’s important to me, my career. I’m changing my training regimen and my lifestyle. I am now focused and I am putting 110% effort into my training. I have talked to my promoter Zef Ramirez. He and I care deeply for this sport and we know what needs to be done to make it to the elite level. It is time to prove it’s Junior time! Again, thank you to my fans for your continued support, I won’t let you or myself down again.”

Report/gallery: Gesta vs. Barnett

Ringside by Anthony Springer Jr.
Photos by Mary Ann Owen / BoxinginLasVegas.com

They say offense wins games and defense wins championships. Ty Barnett was long on defense and short on offense in a losing effort to Mercito Gesta in ESPN’s Friday Night Fight’s main event. Instead, it was Gesta who used a balanced attack to wear down Barnett before scoring a TKO victory with a mere second to spare in the ninth round.

After having to literally walk the elusive Barnett down in the latter half of the fight, Gesta (26-0-1, 14 KOs) showed he meant business in the ninth. The accumulation of power shots to the face and mid-section paid dividends and a hard left hook caught Barnett flush and sent him to the canvas just as the ten-second signal was given. In no hurry to go to the tenth and final round, Gesta pounced, flattening Barnett with a jab that ended the fight.
And though it appeared that the final punch that tattooed Barnett’s (19-3-1, 12 KOs) face was landed after the bell, Barnett was clearly losing the bout and was in no condition to fight on. (more…)

After punishing Ty Barnett for the majority of the bout, Mercito Gesta showed the Las Vegas crowd at Texas Station Casino why they call him “No Mercy.” A big left hook late in the ninth put Barnett (19-3-1, 12 KOs) on the canvas just as the ten second signal was given. As soon as Barnett was cleared to fight, Gesta (26-0-1, 13 KOs) seized the opportunity. Barnett was blasted with another pair of punches and final Gesta jab landed with just a second remaining. With Barnett on rubbery legs, the bout was halted at 2:59.

Jessie Magdaleno (11-0, 8 KOs) totally outclassed Aldimar Santos (16-3, 9 KOs) in a one sided second round TKO. The hometown hero had Santos rethinking why he wanted to be in the ring from the opening moments of the bout when a straight left, followed by two quick rights found a mark. A pair of left and right hooks dropped Santos late in the first round. In a moment of deja vu, a similar flurry sent Santos to his knees in the final ten of the second, causing referee Robert Byrd to halt the bout. Time of stoppage was 2:54. (more…)

Spence decision reversed; USA back in business

After reviewing the video of Bout #142 involving Welterweights (69kg) Krishan Vikas (India) and Errol Spence (USA), the AIBA Competition Jury found that 1) there were a total of nine (9) holding fouls committed by the Indian boxer in the third round alone. However the Referee only gave one caution, and 2) In the second round, at the time 02:38, the boxer from India spit out his mouthpiece intentionally. However the Referee didn’t give any warning. Based on these findings, the Competition Jury Members unanimously decided the following:

– Decision #1: Based on the AIBA Technical & Competition Rules 12.1.9, the Referee should have given at least two (2) warnings to the Indian boxer.

– Decision #2: Although the boxer from India intentionally spit out his mouthpiece, the Referee’s view was blocked by the boxer from the USA and was not able to see the action.

Final Decision: Based on Decision #1, at least four (4) points should have been awarded to the boxer from the USA. Therefore the final score should be 13:15 in favour of the USA. The protest is accepted and the winner of Bout #142 is Errol Spence (USA).

And then there were none; Warren, Spence lose

USA Olympian flyweight Rau’shee Warren and USA welterweight Errol Spence both went down to defeat Friday, eliminating all nine American boxers from Olympic competition without a medal. Warren, a three-time Olympian, again crashed out of the Olympics in his first fight, losing 19-18 to France’s Nordine Oubaali. Spence was trailing India’s Krishan Vikas after every round, ultimately going down to a 13-11 defeat.

This is the first time ever that the United States has been shut out in any Olympic boxing competition it has entered. Quite an embarrassment for the nation that won five boxing gold medals in 1976 and nine in 1984.

The card promoted by Angelee Gardner’s Syndicate Promotions had a little of everything to satisfy everyone in attendance from knockouts to close decisions on the card. In the co-feature, Tevin “The American Idol” Farmer (7-3-1, 1 KO) put on an exhibition as he clearly outboxed Rasool Shakoor (3-11-1, 1KO) over eight rounds to capture a one sided unanimous decision victory and the vacant IBS National lightweight title by a one-sided unanimous decision. The entertaining night of ring action was matched by “The Boxing Diva” Renee Aiken. (more…)
