Irene delays Gatti announcement

Due to travel interruptions caused by Hurricane Irene, the press conference announcing the voluminous findings of a ten-month investigation into the death of boxing legend Arturo Gatti has been moved to Wednesday, September 7. Internationally renowned private investigators Paul Ciolino of Chicago and Joseph Moura of Boston have been hired by Gatti’s manager Pat Lynch to investigate Gatti’s death. The three-time world champion Gatti was found dead in his rented vacation apartment in Brazil on July 11, 2009 at the age of 37. Brazilian police arrested Gatti’s wife Amanda Rodrigues, only to release her three weeks later. The Brazilian authorities have ruled Gatti’s death a suicide. A number of medical and scientific expert witnesses from across the country will also make brief presentations which organizers say will conclusively lay to rest the mystery surrounding Gatti’s cause of death

Hinkey overwhelms Bartinelli

By Travis Landon

Coming off of a year-and-a-half layoff, McDermitt, NV’s Derek Hinkey (9-2, 8 KOs) overwhelmed Anthony Bartinelli (20-15, 13 KOs) in the second round of their six round middleweight main event in Fallon, NV. Hinkey came out and dominated from the beginning knocking Bartinelli down with a left hook midway through the first round. Bartinelli got up on shaky legs and made it through the round. In the second round Hinkey suffered a low blow that made him open up and land a barrage of punches that prompted referee Vic Drakulich to stop the bout at 1:41. Bartinelli argued with Drakulich afterwards and had to be restrained.

Also on the card, super middleweight Roger Romo (4-0-2) won a four round decision against Thomas Haines (5-7) by the scores of 40-36 on all cards. Romo is the younger brother of Fernando Vargas.

This was the fourth installment of Rural Rumble put on by the City of Fallon, NV and Lets Get It On Promotions.

Sergei Liakhovich Update

After his brutal knockout loss to heavyweight contender Robert Helenius on Saturday night in Erfurt, Germany, former heavyweight champion Sergei Liakhovich was taken to a local emergency room in the early morning hours where a CT scan revealed that his nose had been broken in two places during the bout. Gasping for breath from early in the third round when the first fracture occurred, until the fight was stopped in the ninth by veteran referee Stanley Christodoulu, Liakhovich suffered fractures of the bones located high up on the bridge of both the right and left sides of his nose.

Thompson shuts out Takehara

By Shamus Young at ringside

Heavyweight prospect “Vicious” Vincent Thompson dominated Japan’s number one heavyweight Mashataka Takehara over eight rounds Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, WA. Thompson put on a clinic in smart boxing that showcased his handspeed as he calmly outworked his opponent over the distance. Takehara helped Thompson look good by staying in a defensive shell for the whole fight and letting Thompson work. All judges and Fightnews scored it 80-72. Thompson went to 9-0 after the decision, and Takehara fell to 6-5-3.

Sometimes, scoring a knockdown is bad for a fighter. Such was the case in the co-main event, in which Light Welterweight Oscar Andrade (now 7-0) won an entertaining decision over Michael Lucero (12-17-2) over six rounds. Andrade had great reach for a 140 pounder and used it well early. Andrade also used the jab and uppercut more than the usual southpaw. An uppercut scored a knockdown in the second, and Andrade went wild looking for the knockout. For the two rounds after the knockdown, Andrade stopped using his jab and went uppercut crazy, which let Lucero recover and start to score by wading in after a misguided uppercut. Andrade finally settled down, regained his jab, and took control to win. Scores were 59-54 and 60-53 twice. Fightnews had it 58-55. (more…)

Yes, Anderson Silva added to his record number of title defenses (nine) and consecutive UFC wins (14) Saturday night at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, but in stopping number one contender Yushin Okami in the second round of the UFC RIO main event, the 36-year old Silva isn’t getting older – he’s getting better.

Andrade overwhelms O’Brien

Super middleweight Librado Andrade (30-4, 23 KOs) scored an impressive third round stoppage of Matt O’Brien (18-3, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Centro De Espectaculos De La Feria Leon in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Andrade’s brother, light heavyweight Enrique Ornelas (32-7, 20 KOs), outpointed journeyman Alfredo Contreras (11-12-2, 5 KOs) over ten in the co-feature. It was the first time the brothers from Jesus del Monte, Guanajuato, have both fought on a pro card in Mexico.

Povetkin gets past Chagaev

Helenius impressive in destruction of Liakhovich

By Karl Freitag

Unbeaten heavyweight Alexander Povetkin (22-0, 15 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over former WBA titleholder Ruslan Chagaev (27-2-1, 17 KOs) to claim the vacant WBA “regular” heavyweight title on Saturday night at the Messehall in Erfurt, Germany. A very close fight over the first five rounds. Chagaev seemed to be coming on in the sixth and seventh. Povetkin had a strong round eight while Chagaev suddenly seemed to be fading as the bout progressed. Povetkin was in total command in rounds ten and eleven as Chagaev looked spent. Knowing he’s behind, Chagaev went on the attack in round twelve, but it was two little, too late. Scores were 117-113, 117-113, 116-112. Of course, Wladimir Klitschko remains the WBA heavyweight “super” champion. Rumor has it that Povetkin could make his first defense against Evender Holyfield, who was quite visible during fight week.

Unbeaten 6’6 heavyweight contender Robert Helenius (16-0, 11 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over former WBO champion Siarhei Liakhovich (25-4, 16 KOs). After a relatively quiet seven rounds, Helenius battered Liakhovich to a knee at the end of round eight. Helenius immediately attacked the still dazed Liakhovich in round nine with a barrage of hard shots and referee Stabley Christdodoulou stopped the fight as Liakhovich crumpled to the canvas. Time was :19. Helenius retains his WBA and WBO Inter-Continental belts. Liakhovich joins Lamon Brewster and Sam Peter as former heavyweight champions to be kayoed by the “Nordic Nightmare.” (more…)

On Friday night, Greg Barckhoff’s Sports Fan Properties along with Shea Bailey Promotions delivered once again to the boxing starved fans of Atlanta with yet another exciting night of fights. In the main event Darnell “Deezol” Boone (19-17-3 8KO) only needed 40 seconds to dismantle and dismiss Marcus “The Terror” don Hall of Savannah, Ga. The first 20 seconds of the fight Hall circled as Boone pursued him around the ring. In the first heated exchange Boone wobbled Hall with a solid right that sent him to the canvas on all fours. Hall was able to barley beat the count, but it soon ended as Boone calmly setup another crushing right hand that sent his opponent into the ropes and out for good. At the :40 mark of round one referee Jim Korb mercifully stopped the fight. (more…)

Guerrero out for six months

Will undergo surgery to repair rotator cuff

One week after a shoulder injury forced Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero’s to withdraw from his August 27 world title challenge against WBA Super Lightweight World Champion Marcos “El Chino” Maidana, it was recommended by Dr. Michael Dillingham that Guerrero have arthroscopic surgery to repair a tear in his left rotator cuff.

“After talking to Dr. Dillingham today, Robert will undergo an arthroscopic shoulder surgery procedure to take a closer look at the damage done to his rotator cuff,” said Guerrero’s manager Bob Santos. “Right now the MRI shows a slight tear, but Dillingham advised us that it would be in our best interest to scope the shoulder to check for other damage that an MRI can’t reveal. No definitive answer can be made as to when Robert Guerrero will return to the ring until after his surgery is completed next Tuesday. We are hoping he’ll be back in six months, God willing his surgery goes smoothly.” (more…)

Rubio: Chavez Jr. looks for excuses

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBC’s mandatory middleweight world title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio has expressed amazement at the cancellation of the WBC world title defense of his compatriot Julio Cesar Chavez Jr against Ronald Hearns scheduled for September 17 in Mexico. “I heard that he suffered a laceration on his right hand and has an alleged injury,” said Rubio. “Personally I think it’s an excuse. I don’t think Chavez Jr. is in good condition or has had good training. I understood that it may be a weight problem. Julio is a man who likes to eat but he must understand that as a world champion he must dedicate more time to the gym because he has obligations to defend his world crown. There’s already a precedent in 2009 when he tested positive for the diuretic furosemide to lose weight in Las Vegas for the fight against Troy Rowland.” Rubio trains daily at the Gold Boxing Gym with trainer Jorge “Mapimi” Rodriguez in Torreon. On September 3 he will facing Mohammed Akrong from Ghana in San Luis Potosi at an event organized by Promociones del Pueblo.
