Dimitrenko keeps Euro title

Ding-A-Ling Man shocks JC Gomez; Boytsov wins

By Karl Freitag

European heavyweight champion Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1, 21 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Michael Sprott (36-17, 17 KOs) at the Dima Sport Center in Hamburg, Germany. The 6’7 Dimitrenko kept Sprott mostly at bay with his jab as he worked from long range banking round after round. A desperate Sprott tried to get back into the fight by roughing up Dimitrenko late. Dimitrenko need time to recover from a low blow in round ten and Sprott was deducted a point by referee Massimo Barrovecchio for hitting after the bell at the conclusion of that round. Sprott was warned for a headbutt in the eleventh and Sprott was deducted another point for throwing Dimitrenko to the canvas in the twelfth. Scores were 119-108, 117-111, 116-111.

WBC #7 heavyweight and former WBC cruiserweight titlist Juan Carlos Gomez (49-3, 37 KOs) surprisingly lost a ten round majority decision to Darnell “The Ding-A-Ling Man” Wilson (23-13, 20 KOs). A lackluster performance by Gomez, who was content to work behind his jab, while Wilson threw big shots are connected with regularity late in the fight. Scores were 96-94, 96-94, 95-95. Nice performance for Wilson who had lost six straight entering the bout. (more…)

Maidana speaks after KO win

"I'm ready for Morales, Bradley in December"

Photos: Ramon Cairo

After his fourth round win last night over Russian Petr Petrov in his native Argentina before 7,000 enthusiastic fans, Marcos Maidana not only retained his WBA super lightweight title but, more importantly, he is now ready for a big challenge in his return to America. “It was great fighting before my own people. They gave me tremendous support as they always do. I was a little nervous in the first two rounds but then I was able to do what I had been training for. Petrov is a skillful fighter but couldn’t take my punches,” Maidana said.

“Erik Morales has been saying many things and calling me out. It’s not personal ’cause I respect him. He did his part against Cano and I did my part against Petrov. So if he wants the rematch with me and unify the titles, I’m ready for him in December like I’ve said,” “El Chino” added. “He said I didn’t wanna give him the rematch and that was a lie. Plain and simple. He puts his WBC title and I put my WBA title on the line and we have a fight in December. If he’s not ready, he should shut up and I’ll face some of the other big guys. This time I’ll waste no time in repeating my call to The Queen Khan ’cause everybody knows that he runs scared of me,” the WBA super lightweight champ said. (more…)

Fonfara TKOs Spearman in 2

Cherry-Aiken: no decision

By Phil Doherty at ringside

For a sport so worried about its future, boxing may find the brightest hope hidden in its storied past. Long ago, boxing promoters promoted fights. Matchmakers made matchups. Managers managed fighters and fighters, well, you get the idea. It was a simpler time when your job title defined your role. And despite the nefarious reach of underworld influence, it actually worked. It produced consistently compelling fights that fans (gasp!) came out to see in droves.

Panther Promotions revisited this business model once again tonight from The Seminole Hard Rock Live with some surprising and surprisingly good results. Their seven-bout show, coincidentally titled “Future Superstars,” provided the large and lively crowd an edge-of-your seat ride with more twists and turns than a squirming worm about to become bait.
