Off-TV Results from Las Vegas

By Andreas Hale at ringside

The Philippines’ Dennis Laurente (41-4-5, 22 KOs) ended seven rounds of a relatively dull fight and lowered the boom on Ayi Bruce (20-5, 12 KOs) with a devastating straight left that KOed Bruce in their scheduled eight round welterweight affair. Laurente was the aggressor throughout as Bruce couldn’t seem to muster up much offense. But a straight left ended all of that as Bruce crumbled to the canvas and remained there as referee Robert Byrd counted to 10. Time of stoppage was :57.

Rising prospect Jose Benavidez Jr. put some more rounds in the bank as he scored a one-sided unanimous decision against Samuel Santana. Benavidez (14-0, 12 KOs) scored two knockdowns in the first round, another in the second with a blistering body shot and dropped Santana (4-5) yet again in the fourth. All three judges saw the fight 60-50.

Victor Pasillas made his professional debut a successful one as he outpointed winless Jose Garcia (0-4) and cruised to a unanimous decision. All three scores were 40-36.

In the evening’s opening bout, Fernando Lumacad (25-3-3) earned a unanimous decision victory over Joseph Rios (10-6-2). It was closely contested battle but knockdowns in the 2nd and 5th round proved to be the difference as judges saw the fight 77-73, 77-74 and 78-72.

Kołodziej, Wawrzyk make quick work of Argentinean foes

By Przemek Garczarczyk

WBA International champion and #2 WBA-ranked cruiserweight Paweł Kołodziej (29-0, 17 KOs) didn’t even break a sweat when he knocked out Argentina’s Mauro Ordiales (26-9, 24 KOs) in round two of the main event of the “Wojak Boxing Night” event on Saturday in Gdynia, Poland. Kołodziej controlled the fight from the opening bell with his jab, finishing the fight just as he promised – by KO in the second round. Ordiales went down for the first time after precise left hook, and just seconds later he was down again after Kołodziej’s powerful right hand. Ordiales still wanted to fight, but his corner did not agree with his opinion, throwing in the towel and ending this one-sided battle.

City of Gdynia was not a very hospitable place for Argentinean fighters as in the co-main event heavyweight Andrzej Wawrzyk (24-0, 13 KOs), also in the second round, delivered a series of heavy blows to the head of Nelson Dario Dominguez (11-1, 5 KOs), and just like his colleague from “12 Round KnockOut Promotions,” defended his WBA International and WBC Baltic title by KO.

Tyson Fury triumphs in knockdown-filled brawl against Neven Pajkic

By Dave Spencer

Unbeaten British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (17-0, 12 KOs) scored a wild and exciting third round TKO over previously unbeaten Canadian champion Neven Pajkic (16-1, 5 KOs) on Saturday night at Event City in Manchester, England. Pajkic had a big round two, flooring the 6’9 Fury with a big right hand and hammering him for the balance of the round. Fury turned the tables in the third, dropping Pajkic twice and the bout was waved off by referee Phil Edwards. Time was 2:44. Pajkic seemed to be clear-headed and complained bitterly about the stoppage. (more…)

Pacquiao-Marquez III: A definitive ending this time?

By Graham Houston

The boxing world hopes for a sense of finality, a definitive conclusion, when welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao meets his bitterest rival, Juan Manuel, Marquez, on PPV from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Twice these proud warriors of the ring have fought down to the wire in compelling 12-round fights. Pacquiao has scored four knockdowns over Marquez, but the durable and accomplished Mexican veteran scored with such efficiency that an argument can be made that he was twice unlucky against Pacquiao — a draw and a heart-breaking one-point defeat.

Pacquiao’s trainer, Freddie Roach, tells me he expects Pacquiao to get Marquez out of the fight inside six rounds. This, to me, is highly unlikely, but I do think that the Filipino powerhouse can win before the final bell rings. (more…)

“Wlodarczyk is probably the best cruiserweight in the world now that Steve Cunningham has lost his world title, so you have to say this guy is the best,” Green said. (more…)

Bennett drops Kokietgym four times en route to a sixth round TKO win

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former world rated Chad “Hollywood” Bennett (27-4-3, 18 KOs) was impressive in scoring a six round stoppage of Decho Kokietgym (33-15-2, 22 KOs) of a scheduled twelve round light welterweight bout at the Panthers club in Newcastle, New South Wales Australia on Friday. Bennett started the contest in top gear and continually connected with accurate combinations from the opening round. In round two, the 5’7 Kokietgym was dropped by a perfectly executed left rip to the midsection but the import recovered well to finish the round swapping blows with the 5’9 Australian. Referee Brad Griffiths crowned Bennett the winner at 2:58 of round six after Kokietgym was on the canvas three times from power right hand shots to the head. (more…)

Australian light heavyweight Manny Vlamis (11-2, 8 KOs) scored the best win of his career when he stopped WBA #11 Joel Casey (14-9-3, 9 KOs) in round ten at Malvern Town Hall, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on Friday.

Super middleweight Matt “The Predator” Vanda knocked out Harley Kilfian in round three Friday night at the Armory in Saint Paul, MN. Vanda landed a hard right followed by a left hook to the head that dropped Kilfian for the count :29 seconds into the third round. Kilfian came to bang though as he went down guns blazing. After taking a few minutes to solve the height and reach disadvantage however, Vanda brought the fight to the inside and never took his foot of the gas until the stoppage. Vanda moves to (43-13, 24 KOs) while Kilfian drops to (9-8, 8 KOs). (more…)

Moreno could be allowed to defend WBA belt

By Gabriel F. Cordero

In the 90th annual WBA convention, we were informed that WBA super bantamweight world champion (in recess) Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno may have his world crown on the line on December 3 in Anaheim, California, when he faces former world champion and current IBO beltholder Vic Darchinyan. After a request by Robert Diaz of Golden Boy Promotions, which now promotes Moreno, the head of the WBA World Championships Committee, Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, is checking with the WBA lawyers about the situation. Moreno was declared “champion in recess” due to an ongoing contractual dispute with his longtime manager Dr. Roberto Grimaldo, which has prevented him from defending. Although the situation between Moreno and Grimaldo continues in the Panama civilian justice system, the WBA could sanction the fight based on the fighter’s right to work.

Trout leaves no doubt, takes apart LoPorto

Undefeated WBA junior middleweight champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (24-0, 14 KOs) scored a sixth round stoppage against #14-rated contender Frank LoPorto (15-5, 7 KOs) on Friday night at Cohen Stadium in El Paso, Texas. It looked like it would be a short night for Trout when he dropped LoPorto early in round one. LoPorto showed a world class chin if not world class boxing skills, as Trout landed almost at will. The slaughter was finally stopped by referee Rafael Ramos. Time was 2:32.

Unbeaten Brazilian middleweight star Michael Oliveira (16-0, 13 KOs) dealt an eight round beating to Xavier “X-Man” Toliver (23-8, 15 KOs). Toliver came out aggressively, but Oliveira took command from round two. Toliver was deducted a point for a head butt in round five and disqualified for hitting on the break in round eight. The result was later announced as a TKO with a time of 1:31.

Magdaleno shuts out Lucero; Gesta wins too

By Andreas Hale at ringside

Hot prospect Diego Magdaleno (21-0) capped off an impressive 2011 with yet another mark in the win column as he soundly thumped Emmanuel Lucero (26-8-1) for ten rounds en route to an easy unanimous decision victory as he retained is NABF super featherweight title at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV. Magdaleno’s increasingly improving boxing pedigree was simply too much for the game Lucero to handle as Magdaleno repeatedly popped the jab while ripping Lucero’s torso with body shots.

Figuring that trying to outbox Magdaleno was futile, Lucero instead launched haymakers in hope that something would land and slow down the Las Vegan. A straight left hand rattled Lucero in the 5th and Magdaleno turned up the heat and applied pressure. Clearly committed to score a knockout, Magdaleno sat on his punches and had little regard for what was coming back at him. A combination sent Lucero stumbling into the ropes and prompted a count from referee Robert Byrd. Lucero attempted to psyche himself out as he barked “Come on!” to Magdeleno. Magdaleno obliged and tore into Lucero with combinations and body punches. It was a great display of guts by Lucero but in the end he found himself on the wrong side of the scorecards as judges saw it 100-89, 100-87 and 100-88. (more…)

Solomon speaks out

By Phil Doherty

It takes a lot to rile soft-spoken #1-ranked WBA welterweight title challenger Brad “King” Solomon (17-0, 7 KOs). Perhaps this comes from his country upbringing in rural Louisiana. Maybe it comes from the hard-earned wisdom gained in a 4 ½-year prison stint when he was a younger, more careless man. It could be the fact he now lives his life for his two children, son Brylon and daughter Brylie. Yet when the 28-year-old world challenger read reports leaked to Fightnews.com earlier today by his former promoter, he spoke out in a clear, fiery voice. Brad’s friends and family, including his numerous boxing associates knew something rang false with the characterization. (more…)

#4 WBO bantamweight contender Angky Angkotta of Indonesia considers his loss to Jorge Arce on January 30, 2010 at Restaurante Arroyo in Mexico City to be controversial. “I abosorbed his strong punches, and he got exhausted in round seven, then he did the headbutt on purpose. I was injured on the temple, and the referee asked me to continue the bout, but the ring doctor insisted the referee to stop the fight,” Angkotta recalled from their first match which Arce won by technical decision. “I talked to Arce about a rematch, and he nodded. This is it!”

The Arce vs Angkotta rematch will take place in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico, on November 26 for Arce’s WBO bantamweight title. “I will knock him out this time, and the bomb will explode in Mexico,” promised Angkotta, who is nicknamed ‘Time Bomb.’ “I will bring the WBO belt home for my daughter’s (Chilla) birthday this month.

Tensions Reach A Boiling Point

While things have been relatively civil between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez leading up to their November 12th showdown, emotions bubbled to a boiling point between Timothy Bradley and Joel Casamayor, who will face off as the co-featured attraction on Saturday night.

It all seemed to be like the routine press conference where everyone basically exchanges pleasantries, tries to prove to the media that this time they are in the best physical condition of their lives, thank God and go home. While the 40-year-old Casamayor appeared to be relatively calm as he kept it short and sweet at the podium (“I feel great. Everyone knows what I bring to the ring.”), something that Timothy Bradley said drew the ire of the former lightweight and super featherweight champion. Or maybe the sharp tongued Cuban simply felt like spicing up the mundane press conference practices. (more…)

Freddie Roach issues warning

"If Manny puts him down...I don't think he'll get up."

Fight fans would like to believe that the third meeting between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Marquez should be filled with fireworks and wall to wall action. But if you ask Freddie Roach, he could care less about pints of blood being spilled for twelve rounds. What Roach wants is for his fighter to obliterate Juan Manuel Marquez and leave him lying on the canvas in a heap. That would be the perfect exclamation point in a trilogy that has been loaded with questions.

“I believe all fights should end in a knockout,” Roach said to a group of boxing scribes on Thursday. “Manny is a compassionate guy and he let the last two guys (Mosley and Margarito) off the hook. I urge him not to be compassionate in fights because one punch can change a fight.” (more…)
