Briggs ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Immediately following his victory Saturday night, the last U.S. heavyweight champion of the world Shannon Briggs (56-6-1, 49 KOs) took center ring with the microphone and addressed the crowd.

“I was not too familiar with ALS before seriously reading up on it recently. This is a very serious disease and sadly claiming the lives of many people the world over. I advise everybody to please educate yourself on it as I have. We can beat this together,” stated Briggs.

Briggs then took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to raise ALS awareness. Those who refuse to take the challenge are asked to make a donation to the ALS charity of their choice. As of Wednesday, August 20, The ALS Association has received $31.5 million in donations compared to $1.9 million during the same time period last year.

Briggs demolishes Phelps in North Carolina

briggs-phelps300
The last U.S. heavyweight champion of the world Shannon Briggs (56-6-1, 49 KOs) destroyed and stopped veteran Cory Phelps (16-7-1, 8 KOs) of Kentucky in round one. The bout took place in Winston-Salem North Carolina. Briggs blitzed Phelps from the opening bell dropping him inside the first minute of the fight. Phelps was game and got up but was dropped again for a second time. Briggs put him down for the third and final time with a body shot. Phelps showing his heart got up again but this time the referee waved the bout off. Briggs who is being proclaimed by some now as “America’s Champion,” continued his victory tour in winning the fifth fight of his comeback in five different states. He retained the WBA’s NABA heavyweight title and claimed the vacant WBC Latino heavyweight title against Phelps, who was a last resort opponent after original foes fell out for various reasons. Quotes, photos and video to follow.

Huge Upset: Mike Jones defeated by Jaime Herrera in comeback fight

By Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

Saturday night at Ballys Atlantic City, New Jersey, welterweight Jamie Herrera (12-2, 7 KOs) overcame two knockdowns to outwill the formerly ranked IBF #2 contender Mike “Machine Gun” Jones (26-2, 19 KOs) en-route to a seventh round TKO victory. Jones, who has always been known for his powerful hooks and hand speed, was in control in the early going as he had Jamie Herrera backing up and badly hurt in the second. Herrera tried fight back but got caught with a big left hook and was sent to the canvas just as the bell sounded. Herrera rose to his feet and was on unsteady legs as referee Earl Brown almost stopped it.

Jones looked to finish the show in the third and went for it with a multiple punch combination that had Herrera again touching the canvas. This time though Jaime Herrera was in better shape and fought back hard. Both fighter clashed heads during an exchange that opened a cut on the left eye of Jones who fought carefully and tentatively in the closing moments of the round.

Herrera seemed to gain confidence and began to apply the pressure as the rounds progressed. By round six Jones was game and fading. Herrera’s flurries were doing their damage and his right hands had nearly closed Jones left eye. Jones was hurt several times and fading quickly. Herrera seized the opportunity and continued to batter Jones throughout the seventh round. Jones looked beaten and his left eye was closed as the bell sounded to end the round. The ringside Physician took a look in the corner at Jones and had the referee wave the fight off giving Jaime Herrera the well-deserved upset victory at the three minute mark of the seventh round.

Another first round KO for Hooker

By Robert Hughes at ringside
Photos: Stacey Verbeek

Super lightweight [jr. welterweight] Maurice ‘Mo’ Hooker is wasting no time piling up wins. Including Friday night’s knock out of undefeated Carlos Valenzuela four of his past seven matches have ended in the first round. The tall bomber from Dallas is a rising star at 140 pounds steadily climbing the ranks while looking for some worthy competition.

“We’re looking for the best opponent we can find,” was the response from Hooker’s camp when asked how hard they are pushing the 25-year-old.

During Friday night’s Scott G. Sherman Boys and Girls Club benefit fundraiser in downtown Fort Worth, Hooker [15-0-2, 11 KO] hoped he had a solid test with the also undefeated [6-0] Valenzuela of Ciudad Obregon in Sonora, Mexico. But after about 90 seconds of pushing around his opponent with a quick left hand Mighty Mo quietly dropped Valenzuela. Referee Laurence Cole counted him, gave him a fighter’s benefit of the doubt and sent him back to work. Less than a minute later a flurry of combos and a hard right put ‘El Guerrero’ on his knee and removed all doubt. (more…)

Photo: Lawrence Lustig

Newly crowned IBF World Welterweight champion Kell Brook received a hero’s welcome in his hometown of Sheffield yesterday – and told his adoring fans he cannot wait to put on a show at the Motorpoint Arena in his first defence. Brook took the title from Shawn Porter in California last weekend with a stunning points win on enemy turf, and the unbeaten star is set to defend the belt for the first time in his hometown, with December 6 the likely date.

The 28 year old met the Mayor at the Town Hall before greeting a packed crowd of supporters at The Winter Gardens, and he told them that their support was crucial in driving him to victory in the States.

“It’s been a long road to get to where I am now and my feet haven’t touched the ground yet,” said Brook. “The fans have been amazing all the way throughout my career and it was great to be able to thank them all yesterday. It’s beginning to sink in, all the people that came out to support me yesterday has really brought it home. (more…)

Hallback, Corley win WBF belts in Tampa

On Friday night, at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida, two new WBF titleholders were crowned in the two main bouts on Thunder At The Forum Round 2, presented by Panda 5 Star Promotions.

In the main event, 42-year-old Chevelle “Fist Of Steel” Hallback (30-8-2, 13 KOs) proved that she still has it, winning the vacant WBF Womens Welterweight title in an action-packed and exciting bout against former foe Victoria Cisneros (11-16-2, 4 KOs). Hallback defeated Cisneros by split decision in 2010, but this time she would not leave it to the judges. The end came in round eight when Hallback connected with several overhand rights to hurt Cisneros, who was no longer able to defend herself and was consequently stopped on her feet before another power-punch could do more serious damage. Official time of stoppage was 1:49.

In the second World Boxing Federation title fight on the card, former world champion DeMarcus “Chop Chop” Corley (44-22-1, 25 KOs) stopped last minute substitute Dedrick Bell (12-2001, 7 KOs) in the second round to win the vacant North America light welterweight crown. Corley was originally scheduled to fight David Rodela, but when Rodela pulled out only a few days before the fight, Bell stepped in on one days notice.

Trout knocked down twice, but gets the win over Dawson

By Felipe Leon at ringside

Former junior middleweight champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (27-2, 14KO) met the canvas twice in the third round but still impressed the judges against the hard hitting Daniel Dawson (40-4-1, 26KO) of Australia earning a decisive unanimous decision with scores of 97-90 three times. Trout of Las Cruces, NM, controlled most of the action with a steady jab and an ever present straight left from his southpaw stance but Dawson was able to counter him twice in the third with hard right hands. Despite the knockdowns Trout got back in it and looked to finish the fading Dawson sending him to the canvas in the eight with a flush straight left. For the last two rounds Trout looked for the knockout but the experienced Dawson was able to survive.

Colombian Erick Bone (15-1, 8KO) earned a unanimous decision over Mahonri Montes (28-4-1, 20KO) of Los Mochis, Mexico, in the junior welterweight division over ten rounds . Bone was quicker and more precise as he landed multi-punch combination on the always charging Montes. The Mexican fighter was the taller fighter but never was able to put that into play as Bone succeeded in getting on the inside and attacked the body as well as the head. Judge Tony Crebs scored it a lopsided 100-90 while Max DeLuca and Fernando Villareal saw it an identical 97-93. (more…)
