Eddde Chambers undergoes surgery today

Eddie Chambers will undergo surgery today to repair an injury he suffered during his June 16th battle against Tomasz Adamek. Chambers revealed, “At the end of the first round I felt something rip. I remember thinking ‘Hey, that didn’t feel right.’ It turns out I the tore a tendon that connects my bicep to the bone. I am having surgery to repair that.”

Chambers is anxious to get back in the ring, “Once I have the surgery, I will do physical therapy for about 2 months. I will keep in shape physically. You know running, and anything that doesn’t require upper body, etc. Just to stay in shape and stay ready so that once I get back it’s not going to take as long to get ready for fighting. I want to get back into a fight as soon as I possibly can after that.”

Immediately after Cornelius “K-9” Bundrage successfully defended his IBF junior middleweight title on “ShoBox: The New Generation” with a seventh round TKO over Cory Spinks at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, discussion centered on whether his performance vaulted him into consideration as a potential opponent for Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 15th.

A second storyline developed after the fight though when it was learned that Bundrage was losing on two of the three judges cards at the time of the stoppage in a fight he was in firm control of throughout, including a first round knockdown of Spinks. Amazingly, judges Gwen Adair and Robert Byrd had Spinks winning four rounds to two (57-56 Spinks), while the third judge Fernando Villarreal gave three rounds to each fighter (57-56 Bundrage). Spinks had some good moments in the fight, but through six rounds Spinks was winning this fight about as convincingly as Tim Bradley beat Manny Pacquiao . . . click here for more

Cuello expects to be crowned with gold belt

By Chito Yu Katangkatang

After the day of his wedding, more good news reached WBC silver strawweight champion Denver Cuello-Singwangcha. Kazuto Ioka has decided to defend his WBA minimumweight belt and give up the WBC crown. Under the WBC Rules amended last December 13, 2011, Article 3.17 (C) Any vacancy can be filled up by awarding the title to the winner of an elimination bout. This is however subject to the approval by the WBC Board of Governors. As we all recall, Denver won the silver belt and number one spot after knocking out Carlos Perez. However he was moved down to number two and was mandated to face number one rated Ganigan Lopez in an elimination bout which Cuello won via second round knockout. (more…)

Garcia Impressive, Stays Undefeated

By Lindy Lindell

Last night, local junior-welterweight Johnny Garcia (13-0) swept all three cards versus the Bronx’ Alex Rios (9-13). Johnny Garcia earned his victory. Egged on by enthusiastic locals, Garcia did everything he could to get his man out of there.

Alex Rios wasn’t going anywhere. Garcia may have imagined that Rios, loser of ten straight, was going to be the proverbial walk in the park. He found out otherwise in the first heat of what turned out to be a rousing eight-rounder when Rios bloodied his nose.

Rios bent but he wouldn’t break. From the first round, locals chanted for a Garcia knockout. Garcia tried to accommodate his fans. He hammered Rios pretty good, but Rios wouldn’t allow Garcia to “get him going.” Every time Garcia mounted a rally and thus enervating the locals, Rios would do something more than Michigan boxing observers have been unaccustomed to in recent years, he fought back.

Yoyo stops Chithani in sixth; retains SA title

By Ron Jackson

After a slow start Mzolisi Yoyo picked up the pace before scoring a sixth round knockout over Thembelani Chithani to retain his South African junior welterweight title at the Orient Theatre in East London on Sunday afternoon. The 35-year-old Yoyo (62.80kg) who had a small cut on his right eye appeared rather sluggish and punching short before dropping the challenger with a right to the side of the head midway through the second round. Chithani (62.80kg) was not hurt and got up immediately. Through rounds three to five the champion continued to hold the edge against he 24-year-old Chithani who is ranked at number seven by Boxing SA. Coming into round six the champion was well ahead against the light punching challenger before stepping in to land a short left to the body that sent Chithani to his knees where he was counted out by referee Andile Matika at 2 minute 5 seconds into the round. Chithani did not appear to be in that much distress and could have possibly misjudged the count. (more…)

Ioka renounces WBC belt

Photo: Joe Koizumi

By Joe Koizumi

Having unified world 105-pound belts ten days ago, unbeaten Kazuto Ioka, a 23-year-old Japanese star, announced on Friday to renounce the WBC belt by keeping only the WBA throne. Ioka pounded out a close but unanimous decision (115-114 and 115-113 twice) over then WBA titleholder Akira Yaegashi in his home turf Osaka on June 20. Prior to the unification bout the WBC had sent a logical letter to both champions to have the winner relinquish either of the belts to pave the way for official challengers to pursue the championship within ten days thereafter. Both Ioka and Yaegashi had been at the mandatory stage of their defenses, and it was apparently impossible that the unified champ to make the mandatory defense with different official challengers of the organizations—without having a double body. Ioka is willing to outgrow the minimumweight category and move up to the 108-pound division in the near future.

Cornelius Bundrage successfully defended his IBF junior middleweight title, stopping Cory Spinks in the 7th round at the Fantasy Springs Casino Events Center in Indio, CA. Bundrage (32-4, 19 KOs) dropped Spinks with a right hand in the first round. The action was sloppy at times as Spinks (39-7, 11 KOs) would hold and Bundrage would inadvertently hit behind Spinks’ head. Bundrage dropped Spinks with a hard right hand in the opening moments of the seventh round. Moments later, Bundrage dropped Spinks again with another right hand to the head. Later in the round, another barrage of punches dropped Spinks to the canvas, prompting referee Ray Corona to stop the bout at 2:32. Bundrage has been targeted as one of a few fighters to face Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 15th.

WBC #3/WBA #5/IBF #5 and WBO #10 jr middleweight Erislandy Lara won a hard-fought 10 round unanimous decision over Freddy Hernandez. The southpaw Lara (17-1-1, 11 KOs) won a majority of the exchanges between the two, beating Hernandez to the punch by landing short right hooks or left crosses to the head. Hernandez (30-3 1ND, 20 KOs) hung in there, finding success by landing hooks to the body. Lara was deducted a point in the seventh round for butting Hernandez, but the point deduction had little impact on the scoring, as Lara finished strong in the final two rounds.

Jones Jr. knocked down, but gets split nod

Photos: Piotr Duszczyk/Ringpolska

In a cruiserweight bout, 43-year-old former four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr (56-8, 40 KOs) won a ten round split decision over previously unbeaten WBC #9 light heavyweight Pawel Glazewski (17-1, 4 KOs) on Saturday night at the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland. Jones was quick enough and sharp enough to outscore the light punching Glazewski early on. Jones was doing a lot of showboating in the bout until Glazewski dropped him with a left hook in round six. Glazewski outworked jones after that, but Roy landed some good punches in round ten that slightly staggered Glazewski and likely won the bout for him. Scores were 96-93, 96-94 for Jones, 95-94 for Glazewski.

Glazewski replaced Jones’ original opponent, WBC #4 light heavy Dawid Kostecki, on short notice after Kostecki was unexpectedly imprisoned. The win will undoubtedly put Jones back into the WBC ratings and position him for a title shot.

Unbeaten 23-year-old Polish heavyweight hope Artur Szpilka (12-0, 9 KOs) outpointed 42-year-old four-time world title challenger Jameel “Big Time” McCline (41-12-3, 24 KOs) over ten rounds. Although both fighters had their moments, it was mostly a tactical fight with few exchanges as the 6’6, 275lb McCline stalked his smaller, quicker, more mobile and 19 years younger opponent.

Former lightweight world champion Nate Campbell (36-9-1, 26 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Krzysztof Szot (16-3-1, 5 KOs). The 40-year-old “Galaxxy Warrior” was much more ring savvy than the less experienced Szot and had things pretty much his way.

Former welterweight title challenger Rafal Jackiewicz (42-10-1, 21 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Luca Michael Pasqua (16-5-1, 10 KOs). Currently rated #10 by the IBF, Jackiewicz dropped Pasqua at the end of round three and again in round seven, but Pasqua hung in until the final bell.

With the defeat, Reynoso had his seven-bout unbeaten streak snapped. Provodnikov had won four bouts in a row since his only defeat at the hands of Mauricio Herrera in January of 2011. (more…)

Boxing Result

Scott Harrison returns with KO

Former WBO featherweight champion Scott Harrison (26-2-2, 15 KOs) returned to the ring for the first time since 2005 and had little problem stopping previously unbeaten Hungarian 18-year-old Gyorgy Mizsei Jr (7-1, 3 KOs) in a lightweight bout on Friday night at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow, Scotland. The 34-year-old Harrison, who was stripped of his world title after his life unraveled due to the ravages of alcoholism, dropped the very slim Mizsei with body shots three times in round two. The bout was waved off after Harrison dropped Mizsei again in round four. Time was 1:30.

Super featherweight John Simpson (23-9, 10 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over Paul Appleby (18-4, 11 KOs) in a bout for the BBBofC Celtic belt. Simpson dropped Appleby twice in round six.
