Guerrero wins IBF 115lb title

In a war with more fireworks than a Chinese New Year, Rodrigo “Gato” Guerrero (16-3-1, 10KOs) exacted his revenge over San Antonio, TX’s Raul “Cobra” Martinez (28-2, 16KOs) with a unanimous six round technical decision to capture the vacant IBF super flyweight title on Saturday night at the Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Guerrero of Mexico City scored the harder punches through out the brawl, even dropping the Martinez with a straight left in the third round. Martinez held his own with slick boxing and quick combination punching but in the sixth, he suffered a cut over his right eye from a accidental head butt. The ringside doctor deemed he couldn’t continue. Tom Miller had it 59-54 while Marty Denkin and Chris Wilson saw it a much closer 57-56 for the new champ.

After 10 dominating rounds, Tijuana’s “Aztec Princess” Jackie Nava (25-4-3, 11KOs) treated her hometown fans to another win when she was awarded a landslide unanimous decision over over matched Soledad “Guerrera” Matthysse (9-3-1, 1KO). Nava scored with big rights that bloodied the nose of the Argentine and a constant attack to the body although the very tough Matthysse was the busier of the two. Official scores were 100-90 twice and 99-91. For more details and photos click here…

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Due to incidents that took place Friday night at the DC Star Nightclub in Washington, DC, the Diva Rize-N Promotions card scheduled for tonight was cancelled shortly before the first bell because the DC Metropolitan Police Department shut down the venue.

Nietes dethrones Garcia

By Dennis Principe

Photo: Dennis Principe

Filipino Donnie Nietes became a two-division world champion by dethroning Ramon Garcia of Mexico in their 12-round WBO lightflyweight title fight at the University of St. La Salle in Bacolod City south of Manila, Philippines.

Nietes controlled the first half of the fight with his busy right hand, with the Filipino being the aggressor from the start. Garcia tried to be assertive in round five but the Mexican got caught with a strong left upper cut and a left to the body. Nietes had another big round as he wobbled Garcia with a big right then followed it up by an uppercut in the sixth.

The southpaw Garcia became unrelenting with his attacks which started to pay off as he was now connecting some big lefts and some combinations to the body starting in the seventh round. Clashing of heads in the 10th caused a small cut on Nietes’ left eyebrow. Another accidental headbutt aggravated the same cut in the 11th, forcing referee Robert Byrd to ask the ring physician to check the ugly gash.

When action resumed, Nietes surprised the good-sized crowd as he went toe-toe with Garcia, hitting the Mexican with clearer blows. Garcia remained aggressive but was missing most of his shots, enabling Nietes to remain on his feet and snatch the win. Filipino judge Danrex Tapdasan had it 115-113, Lisa Giampa scored it 118-110 while Carlos Ortiz penned it 117-111 all for the Filipino hometown bet. (more…)

In a battle of undefeated lightweights, popular Sharif “The Lion” Bogere (21-0, 13 KOs) scored a spectacular third round knockout to successfully defend his NABO lightweight title against previously unbeaten Francisco Contreras (16-1, 13 KOs) on Friday night at Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel in Las Vegas. A right hand to the jaw followed by a glancing blow off the shoulder laid out Contreras face down for the count at 2:01. Contreras was down for an extended time and was taken from the ring on a stretcher. He appeared conscious.

Undefeated junior middleweight Jermell Charlo (16-0, 7 KOs) showed skills in boxing his way to an eight round unanimous decision over Francisco Santana (12-3-1, 6 KOs). Santana had his best moment in round six, hurting Charlo, but for the most part he was content to plod after Charlo eating a steady diet of leather. Scores were 79-73, 78-74, 79-73.
