Zumbrun KOs Couser in 4

Report and photo by Travis Landon

Billy “The Kid” Zumbrun (25-12-1, 13 KOs) stayed perfect in Utah by knocking out Cliff Couser (26-22-2) in the fourth round of their fight in Ogden, UT. Zumbrun came out the aggressor landing combinations to the head and body that put Couser against the ropes. In the second round Billy hurt Couser against the ropes early in the round and followed up with several rights to the body to prompt the referee to give Couser a standing eight count. Later in the round Billy landed another series of blows to prompt a second standing eight, but Couser survived the round. Billy continued his assault until he finally put Couser down for the count in round four with a hard right hand followed up by a combination. After the fight Zumbrun said he would like to get a couple more fights before getting a big fight. With the win Zumbrun is now 15-0 in Utah.

DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing Series kicked off Saturday night in front of a sold out crowd at Roseland Ballroom in NYC with a scheduled 9 bouts featuring local and international fighters. In the main event of the evening, Brooklyn’s undefeated NABF Jr. Welterweight Champion, Gabriel “Tito” Bracero (18-1, 3 KO’s) was dethroned of his Jr. Welterweight title by former two-time World Champion, DeMarcus “Chop-Chop” Corley (38-19-1, 22KO’s) of Washington, DC. It was an action packed fan friendly bout scheduled for 10 rounds. Corley, who is a southpaw, entered the ring losing 8 out of his last 9 fights and displayed that at 37 years young he still has what it takes to beat a young up and coming lion on the road. Corley entered the ring wearing a plain white bath rope that looks like he borrowed it from his hotel and was adorned with a Ushanka (Russian fur cap) on his head. Bracero entered the ring looking confident and acknowledged his fans in attendance while cheering “Tito, Tito, Tito!” (more…)

Lightweight Regino Canales (4-2, 1 KO) won by TKO when the referee stopped the fight at the start of the sixth round after the doctor checked the right eye of Edgardo Rivera (6-2, 5 KOs).

Bonanni wins by KO in Argentina

By Gabriel F. Cordero and Leo Benatar

Argentinian prospect Argentine Juan Manuel Bonanni (17-2-2, 6 KOs) won by knockout in the third round against compatriot Hector Santana (13-2, 10 KOs) in a welterweight fight at the CEDEM Home No. 2 in the province of Buenos Aires. Bonanni was from beginning to end working smart and effective boxing from a distance as it suited him, while Santana sought to trade at all times, but at a very slow and tiresome pace. Near the end of the first round Bonanni sent Santana to the canvas with a powerful right cross over the ear. Then in the third Bonanni threw a right cross that almost reached its destination and then came a powerful left on Santana’s temple. He crumpled to the mat slowly and in poor condition received referee Jorge Bacile’s count and knockout decree.

Jennings outworked Byarm to earn a 97-93, 96-94, 96-94 verdict.

Jr middleweight “King” Gabriel Rosado (19-5, 11 KOs) scored a surprisingly one-sided fifth round TKO over Jesus Soto-Karass (24-8-3, 16 KOs). Rosado was on the attack from the opening bell until referee Steve Smoger waved it off at 2:06 of the fifth with Soto-Karass under heavy fire.

Fast rising light heavyweight Sullivan Barrera (9-0, 6 KOs) outpointed previously unbeaten Damar Singleton (8-1, 4 KOs) over six, but failed to impress. Scores were 60-54, 60-54, 59-55. more photos

Report/gallery: Rigondeaux vs. Ramos

Cuban boxing sensation and two-time Olympic gold medalist Guillermo Rigondeaux may have lulled fight fans at The Palms to sleep with several painfully tentative rounds against Rico Ramos, but he woke them up with a sensational sixth round knockout to claim the WBA super bantamweight title. The previously undefeated Ramos was overmatched from the outset as a cool, calm and calculated Rigondeaux waited for Ramos to over commit and drilled him with a straight left hand that stunned his foe and followed up with another left hand that sent Ramos tumbling to the canvas. Fortunately for Ramos there were only seconds on the clock . . . Click here for more

Pendarvis defeats Lugo

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

Welterweight Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis won a workmanlike eight round unanimous decision over Jose Alfredo Lugo at the Warner Center Marriott in Woodland Hills, CA. The southpaw Pendarvis (14-3-2, 5 KOs) was in command for most of the bout, using his speed and ring generalship to land almost at will. Undaunted, Lugo pressed forward, hoping to land lead right hands. He was at his best when both fighters traded punches. However, Lugo (12-17-1, 5 KOs) was not able to keep up with the speed of Pendarvis. All three judges, including Fightnews.com, scored the bout 79-73 in favor of Pendarvis. The Pendarvis-Lugo bout was moved up to main event status when the light heavyweight bout between Anatoily Dudchenko and Alex Armenta fell through due to Armenta claiming that he became ill a few days ago.

Miguel Cotto will choose the best deal

By Rey Colón -The Sport Press

The free agent status of WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (37-2, 30 KOs) will allow him to choose the best offer from Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Manny Pacquiao, who continue to publicly discuss through their advisors and promoter Bob Arum whether or not they will face off May 5 or June 9. Given the refusal of Mayweather Jr. to accept a 50-50 purse split while Pacquiao insists on this condition, all roads lead to Cotto, who after them is the biggest ‘pay per view’ seller in the division, therefore his name is the first option.

Cotto will listen to the offer of the Mayweather Jr. group and then give an opportunity to Arum, who was his promoter since he debuted ten years ago and whose contract expired on December 31. He will then evaluate the bids and choose the most attractive and lucrative. (more…)

The undefeated WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. is putting the final touches in his preparations for #1 contender Marco Antonio Rubio on February 4 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

“He’s a very experienced fighter and very strong, but not the overall boxer that Sebastian Zbik is. I know this is a very tough fight and a great challenge for me, but I feel that I am not only ready for these types of fights, but to also win them.” (more…)
