Weekend Wrap

Say what you will about the Klitschko brothers but they have faced all comers in their dominance of the heavyweight division. Although Tomasz Adamek stood no chance in Saturday’s title fight in Poland he had earned the right to be there — it was just that Vitali Klitschko was too big, too strong and too good.

I don’t know quite why Jim Lampley brought Rocky Marciano into the commentary with his suggestion that Marciano somehow fought inferior opposition, mentioning the name of Roland LaStarza. LaStarza was a capable heavyweight of the 1950s (though he would be small for a cruiserweight today) who had fought very well against Marciano three years earlier, when the decision in Marciano’s favour was deemed controversial. As Max Kellerman reminded Lampley, Marciano, like the Klitschkos, fought the best of his era. Nino Valdes? Well, the big Cuban lost to Bob Baker and Archie Moore in what in effect were elimination matches for the right to meet Marciano, and Baker performed so poorly against Valdes that he eliminated himself from getting a title fight.

Lange wins WBU belt

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Great Falls, VA junior middleweight Jimmy Lange captured the WBU (World Boxing Union) Junior Middleweight championship with a sixth-round TKO over Raul “El Toro” Munoz of Topeka, KS in front of a very partisan crowd at the George Mason University Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA.

Lange, who was headlining his 13th consecutive card at the Patriot Center, had to go to a plan B of sorts in this bout as he traded his normal piston-like jab for a body attack. The move turned out to be a successful one as the body shots took their toll on the game Munoz. Lange was able to drop Munoz three times before referee Dr. Joseph Cooper stopped the contest at 2:44 of the sixth. Lange is now 37-4-2, 25 KO’s. Munoz is 22-15-1, 12 KO’s. (more…)

Adamek plane makes emergency landing

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Tomasz Adamek, who just lost his first chance to get a third title in a third weight category against Vitali Klitschko, will long remember his trip to Poland. His plane, bound to JFK airport in New York, after almost three hours in the air had to make an emergency landing back in Warsaw when the pilots spotted a cracked window. “It was not a comfortable situation to all of the passengers,” said Adamek who is traveling with his wife, manager and members of Main Events promotional team, when his plane safely landed. “We of course know that today is the ten year anniversary of New York 2001 tragedy, so everybody was on edge when pilots announced that we have go back,” added Adamek, who most likely will now fly to the US on Monday.

Adamek: Vitali was a better man

Report, photo by Przemek Garczarczyk

“I knew from the beginning that fight was not going my way. I wanted to change this fight and find a way to trick Vitali, but he’s a smart fighter and was better tonight,” said Tomasz Adamek (42-2, 28 KOs) after losing to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KOs). “I don’t think he surprised me with anything today, he was just a better man. Physically I’m OK, just a lot of cuts. I will be able to live a normal life. This boxing, not chess. I got hit in the second round, I was able to keep my balance, but every big hit changes you, takes your strength. But I was still trying.”

Angulo response to Martirosyan

Mexican knockout artist Alfredo Angulo has commented on fellow contender Vanes Martirosyan turning down a WBC title elimination bout against him. “On one hand I’m shocked, but on the other, this doesn’t really surprise me,” said Angulo, who returned to the ring in August after a year long layoff, knocking out Joseph Gomez in 84 seconds. “Vanes Martirosyan is a tough guy, but only on the internet. He calls everybody out, says he’s not getting big fights, but then when he gets offered the opportunity of a lifetime, he turns it down. He needs to get out from behind his computer where he likes to talk about me and get into the ring where he can fight me.”

The bout was tentatively scheduled to take place in Cancun, Mexico on November 5 and was slated to be aired by HBO, giving both fighters the platform top level fighters normally crave. “We offered him everything in this fight, the winner would fight in a WBC world title fight, neutral officials so he wouldn’t feel uncomfortable about fighting in Mexico and he would have made three times more for this fight than he’s ever made before,” said Angulo. “I guess he loves that 30-0 record more than actually fighting real fights against real fighters.”

Klitschko stops Adamek in 10

Tomasz Adamek (44-2, 28 KO) lost hist first heavyweight fight against WBC world champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KO) by referee’s stoppage in the tenth round when Klitschko’s jab and relentless pursuit after the Polish light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion proved too much for Adamek. Adamek tried to avoid the long jab of Klitschko by shortening the distance, but every time the popular fighter was able to avoid the left hand, the right hand did the damage. In the second round, a powerful Klitschko right threw Adamek into the ropes, which kept him from receiving a count. “Get up” motioned Vitali with his hand and Adamek did, having his best moments in the third round when he was able to engage the Ukrainian champion in couple of meaningful exchanges. Open scoring after four rounds was 40:36 for Klitschko. For more details and photos click here…

Why Martirosyan won’t face Angulo

Team Martirosyan would like to offer an explanation as to why an offer to face Alfredo Angulo was rejected. While it is always an honor to fight on HBO and to face a great fighter such as Angulo, the circumstances have to be right. Serge Martirosyan, who is both Vanes’ uncle and manager stated, “Both Angulo and Vanes are warriors. In my opinion they would both beat all of the belt holders at 154 pounds. Why should they fight each other now without a belt involved? They can fight later in a unification fight for a lot more money.” (more…)

McCloskey edges Prescott

In a WBA light welterweight elimination match, Irishman Paul McCloskey (23-1, 12 KOs) overcame a big early deficit to win a razor thin twelve round unanimous decision over Colombian slugger Breidis Prescott (24-3, 19 KOs) on Saturday night at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Prescott was credited with a knockdown in round one when a forearm put McCloskey on the deck. McCloskey’s nose was streaming blood by round two. Prescott staggered McCloskey in round six. But, from round eight, McCloskey began to outwork a tiring Prescott and was much fresher over the final five rounds. Scores were 114-113, 115-113, 114-113. With the win, McCloskey earned a fight with WBA champ Marcos Maidana.

Early Results from Wroclaw, Poland

By Przemek Garczarczyk at ringside

Mateusz Masternak (24-0, 18 KO), another up and coming Polish cruiserweight ranked in top 15 in the major rankings, had no problem to defeat the visibly less powerful Carl Davis (15-3, 11 KO), knocking him out with a right hand in the third round. In the second round, a left and right hook combination reached Davis head, and the taller and slower fighter from Chicago decided to only counter Masternak’s attacks. The only time Davis decided to change his tactics ended badly – a straight right hand on Davis chin put him on the canvas and seconds later, another one ended the fight.

In the first of three main events of the evening , televised worldwide to 140 countries, from Wroclaw, Polish heavyweight prospect 23-year-old Andrzej Wawrzyk (23-0, 11 KO) started slow but was putting together combinations and powerful punches from round five, defeating former US Olympian Devin Vargas (18-2, 7 KO) in round nine by TKO. Wawrzyk, who is considered the new wave of Polish heavyweight boxing, was dominating the fight, picking up the tempo just at the right time – when Vargas was slowing down. In the round eight, after getting continuously hit by Wawrzyk, Vargas spread his hands saying that Polish fighter cannot hurt him. His corner obviously thought otherwise just a round later, throwing in the towel and saving the overmatched Vargas from a more heavy beating.

WBA cruiserweight Ola Afolabi (18-2-3, 8 KO) had a surprisingly close fight – especially in the first couple of rounds – against tough Polish boxer Lukasz Rusiewicz (9-11, 2 KO). Afolobi was looking to spectacularly knock out Rusiewicz, but only when he realized that it will not happen tonight, Afolabi decided to box his way to a 80-72, 79-73 and 79-74 win on the judges cards.

Heavyweight Johnathon Banks (27-1, 18 KO), whose only professional loss was a KO against Tomasz Adamek when the Polish champion defended his IBF cruiserweight title, started with the flurry of punches against Ivica Bacurin (8-2, 2 KO) in the first round. The Croatian fighter hung tough and Banks needed Bacurin’s injury in the sixth round to secure his 27 professional victory after an uninspiring bout fought at very slow pace.

Brooklyn welterweight Sadam Ali (14-0, 8 KO) had no problems to knock out Boris Berg (4-5, 3 KO) in the sixth round of first undercard bout of Wroclaw’s “Battle of the XXI Century.” Ali was dominating from start and the German fighter was in survival mode from the second round and the ref decided to stop the fight when Berg stopped to answer Ali’s punches.
