Tyson rejected again by New Zealand

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

The New Zealand government on Friday blocked former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson from entering the country for a second time in as many weeks. A visa allowing Tyson to attend a charity event in November was cancelled earlier this month after the show’s sponsor, the Life Education Trust, withdrew its support for the ex-fighter’s visit…Another charitable group, the Manukau Urban Maori Authority, then backed Tyson and lodged a second visa application. But Associate Immigration Minister Kate Wilkinson said Friday that the bid had been unsuccessful. Iron Mike has received permission to enter Australia.

How good is Nishioka?

By Joe Koizumi

Today there will be an interesting 122-pound confrontation of WBO titlist Nonito Donaire (29-1, 18 KOs) and WBC champion emeritus Toshiaki Nishioka (39-4-3, 24 KOs) from Japan at the Home Depot Center, Carson, California. The odds are in favor of Donaire, who is nicknamed “Filipino Flash” due to his excellent speed and explosive power shown in his demolition of Vic Darchinyan, Fernando Montiel, etc. Nishioka is also called “Speed King” thanks to his good hand-speed in his native country.

Donaire is well-known in the US as he moved to the States from the Philippines at the age of ten, grew up there and boxed as an amateur boxer in the US Olympic trials in 2000. Since he entered the paid ranks the next year, he fought all but three bouts in 2002 in his second mother country. Donaire, born at the same city General Santos City as Manny Pacquiao, is a more Americanized star than Pacman, fluently speaking English to entertain the audience including the press people. US boxing fans are well acquainted with the hard-punching Filipino who has been strenuously following Pacquiao’s footsteps to become a superstar in the near future.

Nishioka, however, might be much less known to US fight fans and journalists there. This reporter has already been here in Los Angeles to serve as a commentator for WOWOW cable television that will broadcast it live from 11 am on Sunday (because of the time difference). Yours truly would like to introduce Donaire’s counterpart Nishioka for your reference. (more…)

Will Donaire’s KO punch return tonight?

By Graham Houston

When a fighter produces explosive performances we tend to expect them as a matter of course. It doesn’t always work out that way. Nonito Donaire, who once looked one of boxing’s most destructive hitters, has gone the distance in his last three fights. Perhaps, though, Donaire will be able to deliver a dynamic display on the lines of his wins over Vic Darchinyan and Fernando Montiel when he meets Japan’s Toshiaki Nishioka in a junior featherweight championship bout at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA on HBO on Saturday night.

Donaire has been winning but the Filipino Flash hasn’t been exciting. His last three fights have gone the full 12 rounds. The opponents weren’t cooperating and there was also a spot of adversity involved. Argentina’s durable and skilled Omar Narvaez considered it a moral victory to go the full 12 rounds, Donaire suffered a hand injury in his fight with Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. while the tall and awkward Jeffrey Mathebula falls into the “difficult to stop” category.

M. Hatton demolishes Lomax

Throughout the build-up towards his intriguing eight rounder against Chingford’s Mike Lomax, former European ruler, Matthew Hatton, insisted he had to look impressive against the past Prizefighter winner. That statement was brutally realised as a relentless Hatton forced an opening round intervention from third man, Steve Gray, after a crunching right hand to the body sent Lomax sprawling. The superior height and reach possessed by Lomax did not come into the fight once as Hatton forced his way past his opponent’s defences with quick jabs and hooks. After some messy opening exchanges which Hatton always had the last word, the Manchester man fired in long right hand that connected with Lomax’s midsection that dropped him to his knees instantly. Despite rising at nine, Lomax repeatedly shook his head at Gray which enabled the official to make a wise call. The road back for Lomax is a long one as Hatton now looks forward to a minor world title shot 2013. (more…)

Spivey retains NABA lightweight title

By Chris Perry at ringside

NABA Lightweight Champion “Dangerous” Dorin Spivey (42-6-0, 30 KOs) earned a hard-fought 10-round majority decision victory over “Lighting” Rod Salka (16-2-0, 3 KOs) in the main event of Dee Lee Promotion’s “Go Fight…Friday Night!” event at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Taylor, Pedraza, Russ victorious

By Brian Grammer and Clint Rosser at ringside

Former middleweight champion, Jermain Taylor (31-4-1, 19 KOs) continued his climb back into world title contention with a brutal 2nd round knockout of Michi Munoz (23-7, 16 KOs) on Friday night at the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles, Missouri. Taylor dominated this contest from the opening bell, dropping Munoz with an overhand right hand midway through the first. The former champion picked up where he left off in the 2nd, landing a 1-2 combination to Munoz’ chin that left him on the mat for several minutes while doctors tended to him. Time of the KO was 1:05.

2008 Puerto Rican Olympian, Jose Pedraza (11-0, 7 KOs) went almost eight rounds with tough late replacement, Tevin Farmer (7-4-1, 1 KO), finally stopping him at :47. Pedraza continually kept the pressure on Farmer, pushing him to the ropes for a majority of the contest, landing both hands on Farmer’s head and body. Pedraza did what was asked of him as he showcased his hand speed and intensity, finally wearing his opponent down. A headbutt in the final frame slowed the action momentarily, but as the action started up again, Pedraza turned on the jets and finally forced referee Celestino Ruiz to stop the contest, landing both hands with nothing coming back in return.

Super middleweight Lamar Russ (11-0, 7 KOs) defeated Jonathan Cepeda (12-1, 11 KOs) by TKO at 1:45 of round one. In what was looking to be one of the more entertaining bouts of the evening turned out to be the shortest. Lamar came out early and was able to control the early part of the round with his jab. Suddenly, Russ landed a thunderous left uppercut and then sent Cepeda to the canvas with a chopping right hand that seemed to land on the back of his head. Cepeda seemed as if he was able to continue but after Referee Mike England took a second look he decided to stop the contest. (more…)

Stevenson stops George in twelve

Stevenson vs George is LIVE on WealthTV.com TONIGHT at 9p ET/6p PT

By Dave Spencer at ringside

In an IBF super middleweight eliminator Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (19-1, 16 KOs) scored five knockdowns over a gutsy but outgunned Donovan “Da Bomb” George (23-3-1, 20 KOs) winning by TKO at :55 of the twelfth round TKO on Friday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Stevenson broke open a good fight by dropping George twice in round five, but George battled back fiercely at the bell. Stevenson battered George to the deck again in round six. There was no quit in George, however, and he battled on. Referee Marlon Wright mercifully stopped the bout in the final round with an exhausted George hitting the canvas twice. (more…)

Erik Morales Camp Notes

Erik “El Terrible” Morales, the first Mexican fighter to become a four division world champion and who is preparing for his rematch against Danny “Swift” Garcia taking place next Saturday, is closing his camp and is ready to travel to New York for the inaugural night of fights at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn on October 20. Morales’ unified lightweight world championship title challenge against Garcia headlines a night of four world championship bouts that will be telecast live on Showtime.

Morales, one of the few Mexican fighters, still maintaining his camp at the high altitude of the Centro Ceremonial Otomi located in Temoaya, Estado de Toluca, Mexico, has spent already 12 grueling weeks in the mountains under the guidance of his father/trainer Jose “Olivaritos” Morales.
