Mark de Mori: I am at the mercy of the visa renewal

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Croatian based Australian WBC #9 heavyweight Mark de Mori (28-3, 24 KOs) is waiting for a visa to visit the USA and is hopeful of being featured on the undercard of WBC world heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne’s title defence against Deontay Wilder on January 17.

Stiverne, like de Mori, is contracted to promoter Don King. An appearance on the undercard would showcase de Mori’s talents on the world stage.

It has been more than five years since de Mori last fought in the US – he had wins in Mississippi and Missouri in 2008 and and 2009 – and he is excited by the prospect at fighting of one of boxing’s most renowned arenas. (more…)

Yordan wins by KO over Pontillas

By Jeff Pamungkas

IBO lightweight champion Daud “Cino” Yordan (33-3, 24 KOs) won by knockout in round five against Ronald Pontillas (17-6-3) of the Philippines on Saturday night at Pangsuma Sports Hall, Pontianak, West Borneo Province, Indonesia, to capture the interim lightweight WBO Asia Pacific title.

Yordan fought aggressively from the first second of the first round with several clean shots to his opponent’s face, while Pontillas responded with a few good counters to Yordan. The second round, Yordan was also very aggressive, while the southpaw Pontillas tried to connect with dangerous left counters. Pontillas seemed to to start weakening in round three after he began bleeding near his left eye. In the middle of round five, Yordan attacked Pontillas’ head, forcing Pontillas to cover up leaving his body unprotected. Yordan then connected with a clean long hook to the solar plexus. Pontillas went down and didn’t get up until referee finished the ten count. Yordan is aiming to become the top challenger in the WBO’s lightweight division, and aiming to fight for the WBO title after a few warm up matches.

Cuellar targets Mares after showcase KO

The featherweight division is one of the deepest in boxing with stars like Vasyl Lomachenko, Nicholas Walters and Jhonny Gonzalez at the top of the list. On Saturday night, WBA interim featherweight champion Jesus “El Jinete” Cuellar (26-1, 20 KOs) of Argentina added his name to the mix with a fifth-round knockout over Ruben “Kanelito” Tamayo (23-5-4, 17 KOs) in Shelton, Washington.

“I really wanted to make a good impression on the fans tonight and I’m looking forward to fighting often again next year,” Cuellar said afterward. “There are a lot of possibilities, but I think the fighter I’d like to fight is Abner Mares, who I met recently in Las Vegas. He approached me and we took a picture together and then he tweeted it out, saying he wanted to fight me. Well, I’d like to fight him, too. It would be a really exciting fight for the fans.” (more…)

Krasniqi edges out Sek to set up Braehmer showdown in 2015

Report/photos Tony Mayger at ringside

Robin Krasniqi outpointed Dariusz Sek in Munich to firmly plant himself in the light heavyweight mandatory challenger’s position with the WBA and WBO. But it’s Juergen Braehmer, the WBA belt holder in Krasniqi’s sights. A domestic showdown with his fellow German is already penciled in for March next year, around the same time that WBA/IBF/WBO champ Sergey Kovalev faces Jean Pascal.

A lot of credit must be given to Poland’s Darius Sez who gave an excellent account of himself, forcing Krasniqi into the trenches with relentless pressure throughout the contest. Entering the ring to a chorus of boos and whistles, Sek left the ring with the respect he deserved for such a strong performance.

The opening rounds were a cautious affair for the home fighter who found some difficulty finding a way in to land his punches. True to form, Krasniqi kept his range and moved fluidly on the back foot for much of the early rounds. Stepping in to land single punches when the opportunity arose. (more…)

Seldin leaves no doubt, halts Jargal in rematch

By Jerry Glick at ringside

In a hard fought junior welterweight scrap, Cletus “The Hebrew Hammer” Seldin settled matters with Bayan “The Mongolian Mongoose” Jargal scoring a ninth round stoppage plus capturing the vacant WBC International belt

Back in July, the two warriors were just beginning to go to war when the battle was prematurely stopped after the third round due to a cut over the right eye of Jargal that was caused by an accidental headbutt. The bout was ruled a No Contest. This time Seldin left no doubt as he dropped Jargal in round one with a hard right to the head. He continued to put on the pressure each round which slowly weakened his opponent. In the middle rounds, Seldin began to move his punches from the body to the head, never giving Jargal room to mount an attack. (more…)

In round two, Mayorga dropped his hands and dared his GREEN-haired opponent to attack him. In round three Mayorga stood in the corner with his arms folded and allowed Saralegui to hit him. In round four, Mayorga came out intent on doing some damage, then midway he began to taunt Saralegui. At the end of the round, Mayorga unleashed a barrage of punches that put Saralegui on the canvas.

Japanese heavyweight champ, WBC#19 Kyotaro Fujimoto (11-1, 6 KOs), 231, scored a one-sided decision (80-73, 79-74 twice) over Frenchman David Radeff (5-9-2, 2 KOs), 209.5, over eight hot rounds on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. Kyotaro, formerly a K-1 (a sort of MMA) champ, seized the vacant national heavyweight belt by defeating more experienced Kotatsu Takehara by a unanimous nod in November of the previous year, beat ex-WBA interim super-welter titlist Nobuhiro Ishida on points and impressively dispatched Takehara in five lopsided rounds of his first defense in September. Kyotaro, a fast-handed speedster, often had Radeff at bay with his quick combinations but the Frenchman showed his heart and durability to refuse to go down until the end of the contest. Fujimoto displayed his improvement and may welcome a more prosperous 2015 with his constant effort. (more…)

Dirrell dominates, eyes Froch

By Dave Spencer

In an IBF super middleweight elimination bout for the #2 position, Andre “The Matrix” Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over Derek “The Black Lion” Edwards (27-4-1, 14 KOs). Darrell dominated the first eleven rounds, Edwards came on in the final round, but it was too little, too late. Scores were 119-109, 120-108, 119-107.

“I got at the end of the round and at least that added a little bit of excitement to the fans, I was glad I was able to do that.” said Dirrell following the fight.

“The biggest mistake I made was staying on the inside and trying to trade with him. (Trainer) Chris (Byrd) was telling me over and over to stay on the outside, box him, put the jab out and he’s going to shoot the right hand and I could catch him with a counter. Overtime I caught him with combination punches he was up and he was out but he still found a way to either drop his head or I couldn’t find that right angle to get the shot off without the risk of getting caught. I had the perfect game plan but I couldn’t finish it.” (more…)

Stevenson takes care of business. Fonfara next?

By Dave Spencer

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) scored an impressive fifth round KO over WBC #5 challenger Dmitry “The Hunter” Sukhotskiy (22-3, 16 KOs) on Friday night at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Canada. 21:1 favorite Stevenson was credited with a knockdown in round two, but it was more of a push. There were no questions in round five as Stevenson brutally dropped Sukhotskiy three times to end it. It was the first time Sukhotsky has been stopped. Time was 2:42. Stevenson will have time for one more voluntary defense before being required to make a mandatory title defense against the winner of the March fight between WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev and Jean Pascal.

“He made the fight an easy fight,” said Stevenson’s trainer Javan Hill afterwards. “It was a little bit difficult at the beginning because Dmitri was so much of a defensive fighter. After he started moving and setting up his timing and setting his shots up, that’s when he started getting the knockdowns.” (more…)

Russell: I’d beat Lomachenko 99 times out of 100

Former world featherweight title challenger Gary Russell Jr. (24-1, 14 KOs), of Capitol Heights, Md., returns to the ring tonight where he will be boxing former California State champion Christopher Martin (28-4-3, 9 KOs) of Chula Vista, Calif., in a 10-rounder on Showtime Extreme from the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Washington. “I’ve been training for about two months. My hands are fine and I’m roaring to get in the ring,” said Russell Friday. “I’m fighting a tough guy who is definitely confident that he can upset me, which is exactly the kind of fighter I want to fight.”

Russell is coming off his first career loss against current WBO featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko in June. “I will never get over the loss to Lomachenko. Even if we fight again and I beat him, I will never forget that first loss,” he stated. “I expect 2015 will be a very big year for me. I want to fight for another world title, win it, and then immediately challenge Lomachenko to a unification fight. I believe if we fight again I will win. In fact I feel if we fought 100 times, I would beat him in 99 of them.” (more…)

Half-point system tested in SA

By Ron Jackson

The half-point scoring system has been used in South Africa for the first time, without causing any debate. The system, which the World Boxing Association adopted in 2012 and has been in operation in WBA title fights, was used when Siyabonga Siyo and Siphamandla Baleni fought for vacant WBA Pan-African light-flyweight title in East London on December 12. Siyo won by unanimous decision, judge Carlos Sucre Jr scoring it 116 to 115.5, Siphino Mbini’s card showing 117-113.5 and Shesshe Dunja’s 117-116.

Stan Christodoulou, a WBA adviser for regional development, and Carlos Sucre Sr, a WBA judge from Venezuela, had earlier presented a paper on the half-point scoring system at a seminar in East London. The intention is to try to eliminate disputed decisions in close fights, and much research has gone into establishing the effectiveness of the system. (more…)

WBA flyweight champion Juan Carlos Reveco (35-1, 19 KOs) of Argentina retained his title in spectacular fashion by way of fifth round TKO over mandatory challenger Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep (34-3, 20 KOs) of Thailand on Friday night at the Polideportivo Gustavo Toro Rodriguez in San Martin, Mendoza, Argentina. Vor Saengthep got off to a good start, dropping Reveco in round two with a straight right. The enthusiatic hometown crowd got behind Reveco as he rose to his feet. Reveco didnt appear seriously hurt but definitely showed respect for Vor Saengthep’s power. Rounds three and four were fought fairly evenly. In round five, Reveco caught Vor Saengthep with a vicious body shot. Vor Saengthep beat the count but it was obviously he didnt catch his breath. He tried to fend off Reveco, who was firing upstairs and down with rapid and accurate forceful punches. The referee had seen enough at that point and waved the fight off at 40 seconds of round five.
