Jason Litzau (29-3, 22 KO’s) destroyed Ira Terry (24-9, 14 KO’s) late Friday night in the main event at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis. Litzau scored two knockdowns on his way to stopping Terry at 2:43 of the opening round. Litzau looked like a man possessed as he glared at Terry before the bout. And it was obvious early on that Litzau’s goal was to make it an early night’s work. Litzau began the bout throwing hard combinations to the head but Terry stood his ground and fired back which resulted in good early action. Litzau was willing to take a few to get his punches in but quickly began to overwhelm Terry. Two hard rights to the head dropped Terry to the canvas midway through the round. Terry regrouped and went right back to trading with Litzau. Litzau continued to let his punches go while as he seemed to feed off the energy of the rowdy crowd. Near the end of the round, Litzau was landing at will before a final right to the head put Terry down where referee Mark Nelson waived the fight off. Litzau broke down in tears as he jumped on the ropes to salute his hometown crowd following the win. (more…)

File Saturday’s Keystone Boxing card under the adage “never judge a boxing card by the number of bouts on the card.” Because of some unfortunate circumstances in the weeks leading up to the card, the fans at Du Burns Arena in Baltimore, MD only got to see four bouts. However, those bouts turned out to be the most competitive bouts on one card in recent memory.
In the main event, undefeated Suitland, MD cruiserweight Venroy “Hard Work” July received the toughest test of his young pro career but managed to win an eight-round unanimous decision over a very game Justin “The Lumberjack” Howes of Buckhannon, WVA. (more…)
Unbeaten lightweight Carlos Molina (17-0-1, 7 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Marcos “El Tigre” Jimenez (18-4, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the McAllen Convention Center in McAllen, Texas. Scores were 99-91, 97-93, 96-94.
Unheralded junior featherweight Victor Sanchez (3-3-1, 0 KOs) surprised previously undefeated prospect Jerry Guevara (7-1, 5 KOs) taking a six round unanimous decision. Sanchez overcame an early knockdown to drop Guevara in round five with body shots and put him down twice more in the sixth to erase all doubt. Scores 57-53, 56-54, 56-54.

Unbeaten WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (46-0-1, 32 KOs) earned a lot of respect with a seventh round TKO over Andy Lee (28-2, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso, Texas. The taller Lee’s jab was a weapon early as he kept Junior at bay. Chavez upped the pressure in round four and hurt Lee with some big shots. Good two-way action in round five with Chavez doing more damage. That scenario continued to be the theme as Chavez pressured Lee and landed the better punches. Referee Laurence Cole finally waved it off as Chavez punished Lee in the seventh. Time was 2:21. At the time of the stoppage, Lee was ahead on all three cards 58-54.
“I could’ve knocked him out in the first round, but I had leg cramps so I waited,” said Chavez afterward. The win clears the path for Chavez to take on Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez in September.
IBF lightweight champion Miguel “Titere” Vazquez (31-3, 13 KOs) scored a lopsided ten round unanimous decision over former world title challenger Daniel “The Prophet” Attah (26-11-1, 9 KOs) in a non-title bout. Vazquez was in command all the way in compiling a shutout 100-90 win on all three cards. Attah suffered his fourth straight loss. (more…)

In an important clash between heavyweight contenders, former light heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion Tomasz Adamek (46‐2, 29 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over “Fast” Eddie Chambers (36-3, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. It was a tactical fight with Adamek clearly busier and Chambers quicker and more accurate. In the end, judges scored it 116-112, 116-112, 119-109. Chambers appeared to suffer an injury to his left arm early in the fight.
Unbeaten heavyweight Bryant “By-By” Jennings (14-0, 6 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Steve “Freight Train” Collins (25-2-1, 18 KOs) to claim the vacant USBA heavyweight title. Jennings scored a knockdown in round four when the ropes held up Collins and outworked Collins throughout the fight. Scores were 100-89 on all cards.
Middleweight Jamaal Davis (14-8-1, 6 KOs) outpointed journeyman Doel Carrasquillo (16-20-1, 14 KOs) over eight by scores of 79-73, 78-74, 78-74. (more…)
Xiong Chao Zhong (19-4-1, 11 KOs) of China defeated Osvaldo “Chucky” Razon (11-4, 6 KOs) by a closely contested unanimous decision. The official scores were 115-112 twice and 114-113 all in favor of Zhong. The bout took place in Kunming, China with Liu Gang (Zovi Boxing Promotions) promoting the event. Zhong won a vacant WBC Silver light flyweight title with his victory and closes in on another world title opportunity to become China’s first world champion in boxing.

A clash for the vacant WBA interim super bantamweight belt ended in a technical draw when unbeaten Scott Quigg (24-0, 17 KOs) and former world title challenger Rendall Munroe (24-2, 10 KOs) clashed heads in round three. Munroe was cut over the right eye forcing the stoppage at the :43 mark. The bout took place Saturday night at the Velodrome in Manchester, England.

Australian Cruiserweight champion Daniel Ammann (24-5-1, 5 KOs) outpointed Anthony McCracken (14-6-1) over ten rounds to retain the title on Friday at the Panthers club at Newcastle, NSW, Australia. Referee Brad Griffiths crowned Ammann by scores Ted McDonell 98-92, Steve Hughes 98-92, Damien Casey 97-95. This was the second time Ammann outscored McCracken. Back in 2007 Ammann defeated McCracken. Ammann has lost to world rated Shane Cameron and Alexander Alekseev. Big punching Brad Pitt stopped Ammann in 2011.

Australian super middleweight champion Omar Shaick (11-2, 6 KOs) outworked Jeremy Allan (8-9-2, 3 KOs) over ten rounds at the Mansfield Tavern, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia in a nationally televised promotion on Friday. Shaik, boxing from the southpaw stance, was in control of the contest in all of the rounds, connecting consistently with solid combinations. Referee Alan Moore visited Allan’s corner at the conclusion of round eight and nine. Allan came to fight and displayed a big heart, but could not match the work rate of the champion, who retained the title by scores of 100-90 100-90, 100-90. Shaik can make Middleweight poundage and could go after the national 160 pound champion Jarrod Fletcher. more + photos

Is it possible to measure the amount of “fight” in someone?
If one could quantify the sum total of fight in UFC featherweight Cub Swanson, it would be a gajillion out of a potential gajillion quarks or whatever imaginary unit name we settle on. Put the nearly eight year professional cagefighting career with over 20 bouts aside, Swanson took an unfortunate knee to the face in practice leading up to his first UFC appearance in 2011, which pretty much destroyed the left side of his face. Swanson required reconstructive surgery to fix seven fractures, including wiring his jaw shut and the addition of three metal plates. Only five months later, Swanson fought in the Octagon – that’s a man with fight.. . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com

After the controversial decision rendered last Saturday night as challenger Timothy Bradley was awarded a highly controversial decision over welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the Boxing Promoters Association (BPA) moved to establish themselves as a “figurehead” for the sport of boxing. On Tuesday, the President of the BPA, Joe DeGuardia sent a letter to all promoters announcing a call to “oversee” our sport, as other major sports league owners do as a group, by having the BPA take the steps necessary to ensure that fighters and fans have the most competent judges and referees in professional boxing matches. The letter by the BPA was met by immediate and overwhelming support by virtually every promoter in the United States. (more…)

Matthew Macklin was, predictably, in over his head against Sergio Martinez, but another Irish-ancestry middleweight, Andy Lee, stands a much better chance of becoming a world champion when he challenges Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for the WBC title in El Paso, TX tonight (HBO). Lee, billed from Limerick but based in Detroit for the last six years, is the underdog but faces a fighter who is considered the most beatable of all the 160lbs champions. Emanuel Steward, who manages and trains Lee, has long maintained that the tall southpaw was a world champion in waiting. Now, Lee gets his big opportunity. (more…)
