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
Photos: Bob Ryder

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.

Bundrage KOs Spinks again

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

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. Lara won on all three judges’ scorecards, 99-90, 98-91, and 95-94. Fightnews.com scored the bout 97-92 in favor of Lara. (more…)

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.

Iwabuchi keeps Japanese 140lb belt

Hard-punching southpaw footworker Shinya Iwabuchi (19-3, 15 KOs), 140, showed a lackluster performance and failed to realize a highly expected KO victory and kept his Japanese national 140-pound belt by earning a unanimous but less impressive decision (98-93 twice and 97-93) over JBC#7 contender Tsuyoshi Ozawa (13-4-1, 2 KOs), 140, over ten monotonous rounds in Tokyo, Japan, on Friday. Iwabuchi, a beetle-haired Bruce Lee stylist, captured the throne by finishing defending champ Yuji Wauke in his previous bout, but couldn’t display his vaunted power but in round six when he almost sink the game but durable challenger with persistent body bombardments. Iwabuchi, however, appeared to thereafter forget where the stomach or solar plexus was.

Filipino feastin’ with Mark Munoz

If the UFC ever hosts an eating contest, Mark Munoz could well emerge as a frontrunner. No joke. Especially if sushi or Filipino cuisine is on the menu. Born and raised by Filipino parents who both excel at cooking, it’s no wonder that Munoz himself can throw down inside of the kitchen and make a mean Chicken Adobo, along with a wide array of other dishes. Though he fights at 185 pounds, Munoz said he can pack away massive amounts of food in a single session and could easily walk around at 230 pounds if he wasn’t training for a fight. But much of the Oklahoma State University graduate’s preferred grub will have to wait until after his July 11 main event (UFC on FUEL TV 4) against unbeaten Chris Weidman (8-0). In a recent interview, Munoz breaks down some of his favorite Filipino dishes and the diet that helps the former 205er make the tight cut to middleweight . . .

Espinoza-Cota battle to majority draw

Report and photos by Felipe Leon

After more than three decades of presenting professional boxing in “America’s Finest City” San Diego, CA, 2012 California Hall of Fame promoter Bobby DePhilippis has never cancelled a show. He wasn’t going to start now. After the original main event, an attractive matchup between junior welterweights Silverio “Chamaco” Ortiz and Emilio Bojorquez fell to the wayside last week because of an Ortiz hand injury and potential replacement Pavel Miranda was considered a little too tough for Emilio by Team Bojorquez, Bobby D. along with matchmaker Jorge Marron and Event Director Gabriel Barron scraped together a five bout fight card witnessed understandably by a sparse crowd but worthy of mention. In the new main event, Tijuana veteran warrior Gerardo “Soldado” Espinoza (28-13-2, 26KOs) and Mexicali, Mexico’s Jose Cota (12-7-3, 4KOs) battled to a majority draw in a super featherweight six rounder.
