Team Sauerland is hopeful to set a new world record for fan noise on November 16 when middleweight Patrick Nielsen (20-0, 9 KOs) fights in front of his boisterous home fans in Albertslund for the first time of his career. The 22-year-old Dane takes on Jose Pinzon (24-5, 15 KOs) at MusikTeatret Albertslund, with his younger brother Micki Nielsen (10-0, 8 KO) also in action. “The Nielsen brothers, their wild fans and a packed music venue with great acoustics – I´d say we´ll have a brilliant chance of breaking the record,” promoter Nisse Sauerland said. “Just in case, we´ll be handing out free ear plugs at the entrance should things get too noisy.” (more…)

Whatever one may think of strawweight Ali Raymi’s skills or the questionable quality of the opposition he has faced, the 39-year-old Yemeni boxer has entered the boxing history books. On Sunday at the Sports Stadium in Sanaa, Yemen, Raymi scored a first round stoppage of one Akram Jawfi (with a reported record of 5-0) Ali’s 16th opponent this year. It is therefore official: Ali Raymi has now scored 20 straight first round KO victories, topping the mark of Philadelphia club fighter Tyrone Brunson. However one question comes to mind. How on Earth are there so many unbeaten professional strawweights in Yemen? None of Raymi’s previous 20 opponents have ever suffered a loss before facing him.
Raymi is currently #15 in the new WBC ratings and #12 in the WBO ratings.
After his KO win over Vic Darchinyan, former world champion Nonito Donaire issued the following message on his Facebook page:
It wasnt MY win tonight, it was the PHILIPPINES win. We are strong and we have faith. Thank you Lord for keeping me safe, giving me a sound mind, helping me see what needed to be done. Thank you to the Archangels and especially all the fans and Filipinos who watched despite the typhoon. I have alot of work still to do but first I need to get the cheek xrayed for fracture and rest. God Bless!
During his post fight interview, Donaire stated “When he hit me in my cheek, it felt like he broke my cheek, so part of my mind was ‘Is this it for me? Should I keep going?’ but I put my mind and heart into it and said ‘You know what? I will never, ever quit.’”
As far as future fights, Donaire stated he’s looking for a rematch with Guillermo Rigondeaux.

Unbeaten WBA super champ in the light-fly category, Roman Gonzalez (37-0, 31 KOs), 113, exploded his power punches in lopsidedly battering world-rated Mexican Oscar Blanquet (32-7-1, 23 KOs), 113, en route to a well-received stoppage at 0:27 into the second session in a scheduled ten on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan. This non-title go was witnessed by the well-packed crowd at Ryogoku Sumo Arena, where people appreciated Chocolatito’s superior power and precision beneath the WBC bantamweight title bout between Shinsuke Yamanaka and Alberto Guevara.
Formerly two-division champ, Japan-based Venezuelan Jorge Linares (35-3, 23 KOs), 136, displayed a beautiful one-punch demolition of Francisco Contreras (21-4, 16 KOs), 135.75, Dominican Republic, at 3:08 of the opening session in a scheduled ten. Linares looked patient against the aggressive opponent, covering up well and looking for openings to score an effective counter. It landed at the button of the taller rival, who fell prone for the full count.
The first ten-rounder witnessed former two-time world champ Takahiro Ao (25-3-1, 12 KOs), 137, score a fine knockout over Mexican Edgar Lomeli (14-4-2, 8 KOs), 136.5, by badly dropping him twice with a southpaw left at first and with a vicious right hook at 3:03 of the first round.

A sensational event will take place today (Sunday) in Nagoya, Japan, as an 18-year-old four-time national high school champ Kosei Tanaka will make a professional debut against WBO #6 Oscar Reknafa (12-3, 5 KOs), Indonesia, for six rounds at the International Conference Hall. It was Pete Rademacher that had an ambitious and reckless shot at the world heavyweight throne against Floyd Patterson only to succumb in six lopsided rounds in 1957. Lately two-time Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko, in his first professional bout, took on a world contender Jose Ramirez and disposed of him with a single body shot this October.
The local promoter, ex-WBC super-bantam champ Kiyoshi Hatanaka on such an international trend predicts, “This kid is special. Should he beat the world-rated WBO Asia Pacific 105-pound champ Reknafa, I’ll prepare a bigger target for him.” Tanaka, whose amateur mark was 46-5, 18 KOs, will be tested this afternoon. (more…)

For six years, featherweight Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28 KOs) has been chasing Nonito Donaire (21-2, 20 KOs), the man who took his undefeated status by crushing fifth round KO. Tonight, at age 37, “The Raging Bull” will finally have his chance for revenge.
The date was July 7, 2007 inside the Harbour Yard Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut. In the fifth round Donaire dropped Darchinyan with a clean left hook on the jaw. A dazed Darchinyan rolled over, struggled to his feet at the count of six, then careened across the ring into the ropes as his corner entered the ring, forcing referee Eddie Claudio to stop the fight.
“It was the only knockdown in my life – amateur or professional,” says Darchinyan. “Never been knocked down. I jumped up right away. If I take a couple of seconds on the floor to recover, maybe it would be a different outcome, you know? I had no experience with a knockdown. Now it is good – I have experience with it. I want to say to everyone I have been waiting six years. It was my mistake and I have good skills and I have power and I will not make the mistake again.” (more…)

With Wladimir Klitschko’s recent victory over undefeated WBA regular champion Russian Alexander Povetkin, all eyes in boxing are now turning to the fighter who many insiders consider to be one of the few viable opponents for the reigning world champion. However, despite being raked #1 in the WBO and possessing an undefeated record of his own, Russian prospect Denis Boytsov (33-0, 26 KOs) still needs to get through one more opponent, WBO #8 rated Alex Leapai (29-4-3, 24 KOs), before he can proclaim himself the “mandatory” challenger. It is, in many ways, the most important fight in Boytsov’s career. Not only because he is so close to the coveted title fight, but also because his opponent has the proverbial “puncher’s chance.”
You just have to take a look at his record and know that it’s going to be a dangerous affair for Denis,” said Boytsov trainer Karsten Roewer, “Leapai might not be the best boxer skillwise. Still, he is explosive and packs a punch. We have to be wary of those facts until the last bell to beat him.” (more…)
