Former contender Gary Bell on the Ropes

In his prime, Gary “Bring Da Pain” Bell was a noteworthy heavyweight. As an amateur, the Brooklyn native captured three New York Golden Gloves championships and had his sights set on a world title in the paid ranks.

In 1996, world champion and future hall of famer Evander Holyfield enlisted the ultra-aggressive Bell as a sparring partner leading up to his first bout against Mike Tyson. Throughout camp, Bell did his best to mimic Iron Mike and reportedly got the best of Holyfield during some of their sparring sessions. Impressed with Bell’s ability, Holyfield signed on to become his manager. The two sparred again for Holyfield’s rematch with Tyson. This time, Holyfield reportedly got the better of Bell. (more…)

Deschamps: Walters will unify the titles

By Robert Coster

When Nicholas “The Axeman” Walters stopped Nonito Donaire last week in Carson, California, there was one noticeable person absent in his corner, his manager Jacques Deschamps. Indeed, Deschamps is the man who discovered Walters and has guided him all through his pro career, at great personal financial expense. Fightnews sat down with Deschamps to talk about Nicholas Walters’ climb to the top and what lays ahead for the WBA featherweight champion.

Jacques, because of health reasons and a surgery, you could not be in Nicholas Walters’ corner in his showdown with Nonito Donaire. Did you guys talk before the fight?

I wanted so much to be in Carson but I couldn’t be with Nicholas and Team Walters in the biggest fight of his career. I spoke daily with Nicholas and he was so motivated. There was no doubt in his mind that he was going to win. He said ‘I’m knocking him out in five or six rounds,’ and he did just that, showing the world what the Axeman is about. (more…)

Cave-Escandon meet for interim WBA title Dec 11

cavebelt300
WBA #5 ranked Tyson Cave (24-2, 8 KOs) of Novia Scotia, Canada will meet WBA #2 ranked Oscar Escandon (23-1, 16 KOs) of Colombia on December 11. The bout is a WBA eliminator scheduled for 12 rounds and for the WBA interim 122 pound title and will be on an ESPN2 special Thursday Edition fightcard at the Pechanga Resort & Casino, in Temecula, California.

The most recent known name in boxing out of Nova Scotia was former Olympian and world title challenger Kirk Johnson, a cousin of Cave. Personality wise they are two very much different people. Johnson is more quite and reserved where Cave is more brash and vocal. Some in boxing had pretty much written Cave off after his loss to former world title challenger AJ Banal in the Philippines in 2011. A major turning point in his career came when he teamed up with young fast rising manager and Toronto Business mogul Lee Baxter. It was Baxter who secured his bout with former world ranked and fellow Canadian Sebastian Gauthier this past April. Cave went on to unanimously decision Gauthier and win the NABA Super Bantamweight title landing him in his current position. Cave also stated that he has signed on with Sampson Lewkowicz and Al Haymon. (more…)

Salinas stuns Zubia in Hobbs, New Mexico

By David Finger

In what can only be called a knockout, School of Hard Knock Promotions put forth one of the most exciting boxing events to hit Southern New Mexico in recent memory as local boy Edgar Zubia took on his toughest opponent to date, fellow New Mexico prospect Jose Salinas Saturday night in Hobbs, New Mexico in front of a nearly sold out crowd of over 500 boxing fans.

Local boy Edgar Zubia, 140, took on cross state rival Jose Salinas, 139.8, in a six round war that left many fans calling for a rematch immediately afterwards. The quick Zubia was in a “do or die” situation after losing a heartbreaker to Colbert Lozoya in his last fight back in 2013. The talented Zubia was hoping to revitalize his career with a dominant win over the highly regarded Salinas, and for two rounds, it looked like the plan was working. (more…)

A great night of boxing Friday night at the home for professional boxing in San Diego, the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Mission Valley where California Hall of Fame promoter Bobby D. Presents put on yet another fight card in 2014 with “San Diego Fights: Back in Business”. A star-studded audience including the great James Toney, former St. Louis Cardinal Vince Coleman and former champ Steve Forbes among the San Diego faithful to witness undefeated Emmanuel “Renegade” Robles (12-0-1, 3KO) remain so against Carlos “Guerrero” Valenzuela (6-2, 3KO) in the main event junior welterweight four rounder.

In his last fight last summer Robles traveled north to San Francisco to upset local Jonathan Chicas with an eight round split decision live on Fox Sports 1. (more…)

Fights at the Fitz Results: Howard Blasts Victor in One

By Tracy Morin at ringside

On Saturday, Prize Fight Promotions hosted its latest installment of Fights at the Fitz in Tunica, Mississippi. With the crowd buzzing, amped up by the guest appearance of former heavyweight champion James “Buster” Douglas at ringside, the evening offered a six-card bout that showcased young undefeateds, cagey veterans and a fair dose of drama.

The main event featured Tyler Howard (5-0, 3 KOs) and Steve Victor (1-5-1) in a middleweight bout scheduled for six. Victor, coming off a year-plus layoff, was overwhelmed from the opening bell by Howard’s volume, speed and aggression. A flash knockdown occurred in the first minute when Victor fell to a knee, then took another in what was ruled a slip by ref Randy Phillips. But it wasn’t long before Victor was back on the canvas thanks to a barrage of combinations from Howard. With blood streaming from his nose, Victor was clearly overmatched and appeared reluctant to continue, prompting Phillips to wave off the fight at 2:11 of Round 1. (more…)

Rodriquez jr squeaks out split decision; fight shortened due to melee in crowd

Welterweight prospect Juan “the Beast” Rodriguez Jr (12-1, 5KOs) bounced back from the first loss of his career in crazy fashion, scoring a closesplit decision victory over Greg Jackson (3-1-1, 1KO) on Saturday night at Schuetzen Park in North Bergen, New Jersey that was shortened due to a melee that erupted in the crowd as the fourth round was about to begin. In the co-feature of the seven bout card, light heavyweight veteran Corey “Black Ice” Cummings (18-7-1, 13KOs) spoiled the comeback of former USBA light heavyweight title holder Yusaf Mack (31-8-2, 17KOs) by steamrolling his way to a hard fought six round unanimous victory.

Hall: The Knockdown Was The Difference

Stuart Hall proved his world class credentials by giving Golden Boy star Randy Caballero the fight of his life in Monte Carlo last night (October 25). Hall was vying to become a two-time world champion against touted prospect Caballero, with the pair battling for the vacant IBF world bantamweight crown – the title previously held by Hall. In a fantastic contest, Hall and Caballero left it all in the ring, with the pair battling to a standstill before going to the judge’s scorecards. Hall was over for a flash knockdown in round two, but came back at the American with all guns blazing. With plenty of rounds close, and the action frenetic, many people ringside had the contest even and were left puzzled by the wide ledgers. Two judges scored it 116-111 for the pre-fight favorite Caballero, while British judge Steve Gray had it a baffling 118-110.

After the fight, we caught up with Hall: (more…)

Miyao keeps WBA female 102lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

WBA female light-minimumweight (102-pound) champ, Ayaka Miyao (19-5-1, 4 KOs), 102, successfully decked her homecoming and kept her belt for the fifth time when she made good use of her fast footwork and quick combinations and finally finished a game challenger Satomi Nishimura (7-2, 1 KO), 101.75, at 1:58 of the tenth and final session on Saturday in Chikuma city, Japan. The champ’s KO victory with only two seconds remaining (in the ten two-minutes rounder) was reminiscent of the Julio Cesar Chavez-Meldric Taylor affair in 1990.

The taller Nishimura, a Japanese version of a Christy Martin with her husband as manager/trainer, dominated the opening session with good countering left hooks to the still nervous champ who was eager to show a good performance before her hometown crowd. Miyao, a cute-looking footworker, shifted the gear to the second level from the second round on, and swept almost all rounds thereafter, piling up points with her fine display of speed and power. Nishimura, a good left hooker, occasionally caught the elusive champ with left hooks, but Miyao was eventually a victor in every session from the second session.

The final stanza witnessed the determined champ go for a kill and connected with a solid right-left combo, dropping the challenger with a thud. The referee Biney Martin then mercilessly counted her out in the very closing seconds of the hard-fought contest. It was a hard-fought bout though Miyao had been apparently winning on points: Asao and Yoshida both 88-84 and Sugiyama 88-83, all in favor of the defending titlist.

2012 US Olympian welterweight Jose Ramirez (12-0, 9 KOs) impressed again, destroying David Rodela (17-10-4, 7 KOs) in the first round on Saturday before a sellout crowd at the Selland Arena in Fresno, California. A right hook put Rodela down for the count after just 50 seconds. With the win, Ramirez claimed the vacant “junior” NABF welterweight title, his first title as a professional. The bout topped a card billed as “Fight for Water 3″ to bring attention to the ongoing battle against water shortages in California’s Central Valley.

Unbeaten heavyweight Andy Ruiz Jr. (23-0, 17 KOs) made quick work Kenny Lemos (12-9, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Selland Arena in Fresno, California. After dropping Lemos with a body shot, a barrage of Ruiz right hands finished Lemos in the first round. Time was 2:18. It was the hard-punching 278lb Ruiz’ ninth straight KO win.

Katsidis went down in a heap and was very unsteady when he regained his feet prompting a referee’s stoppage. It’s been a bad year for Australians fighting abroad.

Unbeaten super bantamweight Gavin McDonnell (12-0-2, 4 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over three-time world title challenger Vusi Malinga (21-6-1, 12 KOs).

IT’S ON! GGG Golovkin vs. Martin Murray

The deal has been signed – unbeaten WBA, IBO and WBC Interim middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28 KOs) of Kazakhstan will fight top-rated Martin Murray (28-1-1, 12 KOs) of the UK in Monte Carlo on February 21. Golden Gloves and K2 Promotions announced the bout minutes after Murray’s successful WBC Silver belt defense against Domenico Spada in Monaco on Saturday. Golovkin will go in search of his record 19th straight stoppage while Murray will be hoping it is third time lucky after two previous title bids were rebuffed by the judges.

“Murray is generally regarded as the best middleweight outside the world champions,” said promoter Rodney Berman. “As we all know, he’s a world champion without a belt. He won’t be intimidated for one second fighting ‘GGG’, unlike all of Golovkin’s challengers.”

Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions agreed. “Arguably, Martin Murray will be the toughest opponent Gennady has ever faced. It’s a great way to follow up the Marco Antonio Rubio win: coming back to Europe and Monte Carlo against a top-rated middleweight contender. It fits in perfectly as Murray has shown he is world class and Gennady wants to continue to prove himself the most exciting fighter out there. Gennady is making big inroads in the US, but it’s also important for the fight to be in primetime in Europe where he has so many fans.” (more…)

Murray beats Spada to set up Golovkin showdown

Caballero wins IBF bantamweight title; Budler retains WBA/IBO 105lb titles; Alvarez stops Liebenberg

The bout was stopped abruptly at 1:19 of round seven due to a minor cut suffered earlier by Spada, who was furious about the plug being pulled. Scores were 67-66, 68-63, 69-67. Golovkin was at ringside scouting Murray.

In a clash for the vacant IBF bantamweight title, unbeaten Randy Caballero (22-0, 13 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over former champion Stuey Hall (16-4-2, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monac.

Results from Manchester, England

By James Slater at ringside

In the main event on Black Flash Promotion’s Homecoming show, popular local light middle Matty Ryan scored an exciting 5th round stoppage over tough and game southpaw Mick Mills. Ryan improved to 6-1 with the stoppage that came as the referee had finally seen enough after 2-mins and 35-seconds of the 5th. It was a fast paced fight from the start, if a onesided one. Ryan repeatedly pinned his man in a corner and unloaded with both hands, mostly to the head. Mills, busted up but unbowed, fought back as best he could but Ryan would not be denied. Ryan thrilled his fans tonight. Mills was having his fourth pro fight and he showed real heart.

Zelfa Barrett made his much anticipated pro debut against tough and durable 203-fight campaigner Kristian Laight and the lightweight talent did not disappoint. Boxing beautifully, going to the body a lot, Barrett showed fast hands and a fine left jab. Laight dropped his hands and clowned as he is want to do but Barrett remained focused and put his punches together in classy fashion. Scarcely hit throughout the four-rounder, Zelfa won a shutout.

Brähmer opponent named: Pawel Glazewski

WBA light heavyweight champion Jurgen Brähmer has an opponent for his December 6th date at the EWE Arena in Oldenburg, Germany. Brähmer (44-2, 32 KOs) will defend against Pawel Glazewski (23-2, 5 KOs) of Bialystok, Poland. Glazewski is not currently rated by the WBA. His main claim to fame is a split decision loss to Roy Jones Jr. in June 2012.

“Recently, I have faced opposition who have either been well-conditioned or big punchers,” said Braehmer. “Glazewski possesses both these attributes. Although he does a lot well, I do it all better. I’m superior to him in every aspect of the fight game. I will prove this come December 6!”

The announcement will be a blow to Enzo Maccarinelli, who was hoping to land a rematch with the German champion.
