Crespin struggles for win in NM

Ringside by Gerardo Martinez

In front of a crowd of about 600 fans inside the PAL Auditorium in Albuquerque, NM, Las Vegas’ Arturo “El Toro” Crespin (11-3-1, 4 KOs) had tough time against Colorado’s Julio Cesar Lanzas (8-19-6, 1 KO). Crespin controlled much of the first four rounds with powerless pitter-patting while Lanzas seemed content with landing one hard shot every now and then. Crespin seemed to tire in the fifth and sixth round, allowing Lanzas to tee off and land some hard overhand rights. By this time, Lanzas was cut over the left eye either by a headbutt or a punch from Crespin. Crespin caught a second wind in the seventh and outgunned Lanzas. Lanzas took the final round of the middleweight contest with effective aggressiveness. After eight rounds the judges gave Crespin a split decision win with scores of 75-77, 79-72 and 78-74.

Fury vs. Haye off again!

By James Slater

It looks like those fight fans who remained interested in seeing Tyson Fury get it on with David Haye will be disappointed on a permanent basis. The heavily hyped British heavyweight showdown, that was postponed from September due to a cut suffered by Haye in some late sparring, has been called off for a second time – this time due to shoulder surgery Haye underwent in Germany this past Thursday.

And now, with some experts telling Haye he must retire from the ring, Team-Fury are searching for a replacement foe for the February 8th date the Haye fight was rescheduled for at The Phones 4U Arena in Manchester (the fight set to go out live on Sky Box Office).

Fury and his promoter Mick Hennessey are understandably fuming.

“I’m absolutely furious but in all honest this is exactly what I expected,” Fury said to The Mail Online. “Everyone knows I was very suspicious when he pulled out the first time and this confirms to me that he’s always been afraid of me and never wanted this fight.” (more…)

Dyah Davis suffered broken jaw in loss to James DeGale

By James Slater

A disappointed Dyah Davis has revealed how he suffered a broken jaw in last night’s points loss to Britain’s James DeGale. Writing, and posting a photo of his hospital x-ray, on his Facebook page, Davis wrote how he suffered the debilitating injury in the 2nd-round.

“Thanks everyone for your diehard support, I fought with all my heart,” Davis wrote. “I suffered a broken jaw in the 2nd-round which had a major effect on the rest of my performance. I knew straight away it was broken but I did what any other warrior would so – Fight! I’ll go back to the drawing board and figure out what else I’d like to do with my career.”

Davis, the son of 1976 Olympic gold medal winner Howard Davis, lost by three scores of 118-110 and is now 22-4-1(10). DeGale, who is closing in on a world title shot, improved to 17-1(11). It’s likely DeGale was unaware of the injury he had inflicted on Davis.

Unbeaten WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) returned after a 14 month layoff to take an impressive and exciting, albeit one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Edwin Rodriguez (24-1, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.

The bout became a non-title after Rodriguez failed to make the 168lb division limit. Both fighters went fight at it in round one, but Ward soon established that he was quicker and sharper landing the cleaner shots. Referee Jack Reiss deducted two points from both fighters after some roughhousing in round four. Ward then proceeded to put on a clinic, picking apart Rodriguez for the rest of the fight.
