Strange Incident: Referee DQs Alvarez

By Gabriel F. Cordero

42-year-old former WBA two-division world champion Rosendo Alvarez (37-4-2, 24 KOs) was disqualified in the fifth round of his comeback fight against 22-year-old late sub Jean Sampson (12-1, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Polideportivo Managua in Managua, Nicaragua. Referee Onofre Ramirez DQ’d Alvarez after the two traded some harsh words. Alvarez insisted that disqualification was the result of longstanding personal differences between him and Ramirez and not anything that happened in the fight. Ramirez stated Alvarez was DQ’d because of disrespect. Officially the judges had Alvarez ahead 40-37, 39-37 and 39-38. It had been six years since Alvarez’ last fight in April 2006 against Jorge “Travieso” Arce.

Aguiniga still undefeated

Story and photo by Francisco Salazar at ringside

Former world title contender Jose Aguiniga remained unbeaten with a seventh round stoppage victory over Eduardo Arcos at the Oceanview Pavilion in Port Hueneme, CA. Aguiniga looked much sharper and trimmed down compared to his February 25th victory over Juan Ruiz. Aguiniga threw and landed at will against Arcos, finishing each combination with a left hook to the body or overhand right hand to the head. The only blemish on Aguiniga was a cut from an accidental headbutt in the third round that bled profusely from above his hairline. From that point on, Aguiniga pressed the action more, stunning a game Arcos in the sixth round with an overhand right hand to the head. A left-right combination by Aguiniga to the head sent Arcos backwards against the ropes, prompting referee Wayne Hedgpeth to step in and stop the bout at 1:45. Aguiniga, from nearby Oxnard, improves to 33-0, 15 KOs. Arcos, from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, falls to 18-7-1, 15 KOs. (more…)

WBO #10 ranked Ezequiel “El Olímpico” Maderna (17-0, 12 KOs) of Argentina again unanimously decisioned countryman Rubén “Siru” Acosta (24-7-5, 8 KOs). The bout was a rematch of their first fight over a year ago where Maderna unanimously decisioned Acosta. Maderna won this time even wider on the scorecards. After 12 completed rounds the official judges scores read 120-104 and 119-105 twice. Acosta was deducted points for hitting Maderna behind the head in rounds two and five. In round seven Maderna scored a knockdown when a shot to the liver area of Acosta had him holding on and eventually going down but he beat the count. The bout was marred by a lot of holding on the inside, but Maderna clearly landed the cleaner punches by far. The bout took placeat el Club Atlético Platense de La Plata La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Argentina Boxing Promotions, headed by Mario Margossian promoted the event.

Dos Santos defends heavyweight title, stops Mir

Earlier in the week, UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos questioned Frank Mir’s heart.

Mir showed he had the heart, he just didn’t have enough of a chin to snare the title away from “Cigano.”

In the opening moments of the evening’s main event, Mir went for his Hail Mary of the night—an immediate takedown. Mir’s chances for victory slipped away as dos Santos slithered out of the submission specialists’ attempted heel hook. (more…)

Christensen back with a win

By Alex Hermann

Former WBA/WBC female bantamweight champion Anita Christensen was Saturday back in the ring, when she headlined a show in her hometown of Randers, Denmark. Christensen has been out of the ring since 2010, where she drew with Kaliesha West, and tonight she outpointed Isabelle Leonardi over six. The reigning French champion was the aggressive fighter, and she landed several good bombs on Christensen, who on the other side was a better fighter. Christensen was faster, and when Leonardi missed, she landed a number of good jabs. The fight seemed to be close, but the judges gave it to Anita Christensen (25-1-1, 8 KO). The scores were 58-56 twice and 59-56. (more…)

By Rey Colón -The Sport Press

Former WBO 105lb champion Iván Calderón (35-2-1, 6 KOs) has confirmed that on August 4 he will be challenging for the crown he held for many years against reigning champion Moisés Fuentes (14-1, 6 KOs) at the Coliseo Mario ‘Quijote’ Morales in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, however prior to that Fuentes will have an optional June 2 defense against Mexican countryman Julio César Félix (17-3, 7 KOs) in Tijuana. “The only danger is Fuentes fights on June 2 and I hope he doesn’t stumble,” said Calderon. “This fight has been postponed several times. Not because of the boxers but rather for several promotional obstacles and logistics.” (more…)

If one were to look at the personal life of Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis, one would think that he should be locked up or in jail. Maybe even dead. A product of the foster system, a younger brother who was killed, and his birth mother paralyzed were challenges that forced Pendarvis to become mentally strong at an early age. Add to that an upbringing in South Central Los Angeles, where he was surrounded by drugs and violence while he was growing up.

Yet, he was able to find solace and refuge in a boxing ring when he was 10 years old. It is the sport that he has given so much to and hopes that it will give him something in return at this stage in his career. Pendarvis will fight Robert Frankel in a 12 round junior welterweight bout tonight at the Warner Center Marriott in Woodland Hills, CA. Both fighters will be vying for two regional title belts. The clash will headline a six-bout “War at Woodland Hills 8” card, presented by Art of Boxing and Bash Boxing. (more…)
