Caferro to defend Montana state title tonight

By Ricardo Ibarra

Montana State welterweight title holder Duran Caferro will look to make the second defense of his title and add to his ten fight unbeaten streak this Friday at the Eagles Lodge in Helena, Montana.

Boxing News Roundup

By Karl Freitag

At the moment it appears there will no boxing on HBO until October. Showtime has a couple of ShoBox cards in August but there are no Championship Boxing telecasts announced at the moment.

The still not officially announced Floyd Mayweather vs. TBA (Andre Berto?) fight slated for September 12 at the MGM Grand is a little over seven weeks away.

Looking like Mayweather’s fight will be on Showtime PPV, not CBS. So we have a Mosley-Mayorga 2 PPV on August 29, a Floyd PPV on September 12, a Golovkin-Lemieux PPV on October 17 and a Cotto-Canelo PPV on November 21.

Now that WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham is finally finished with Robert Stieglitz, there are possibilities of Abraham facing 50-year-old ring legend Bernard Hopkins or German rival Felix Sturm. Either one would be a big fight.

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson will defend his belt against Tommy Karpency in a September 11 title defense at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder’s next fight is September 26 on NBCSN. His last two fights were on Showtime.

Early on Saturday morning, ESPN3 will stream the clash between world rated heavyweights Joseph Parker and Bowie Tupou in the USA.

ESPN3 will also stream live coverage of the 8-round junior lightweight undercard matchup between Omar Douglas and Frank Santos de Alba from Brooklyn the same day.

The announce team on Sunday’s Bounce TV card headlined by Juan Carlos Payano vs. Rau’shee Warren is Fred Hickman (host), Fran Charles and Austin Trout.

Venter wins in two and Simba stopped in one

By Ron Jackson

Danie Venter won in the second round and Flo Simba lost in the first in a tournament at Presley’s night club in Pretoria on Wednesday night. Venter, a former SA and World Boxing Federation cruiserweight champion, stopped Vusumzi Mlindwa, while Khayeni Hlungwane knocked out Simba.

Having weighed in at 106 kg, Venter did not look in the best shape of his career but he was too experienced for Mlindwa, who made his professional debut as a welterweight in 2008 but now weighs 104.90 kg. Venter, who improved his record to 20-7, including 15 wins inside the distance, battered Mlindawa with left and rights to the head in the second round until the bout was stopped. Mlindwa’s record now stands at three wins, six defeats and a draw.

Hlungwane, who was 14 kg lighter than Simba – 84.05 against 98.05 kg – stormed out at the opening bell and bombarded the former cruiserweight prospect until the referee stopped their heavyweight bout. Hlungwane moves to 6-10, with 3 KOs, while Simba falls to 13-5 with 11 KOs. (more…)

Kiatniwat tops Lebron for WBA interim fly belt

By Robert Coster

18-year-old Thai phenom Stamp Kiatniwat (14-0, 6 KOs) won the vacant WBA interim Flyweight title with a twelve round majority decision over Dominican Gregorio Lebron (13-3, 11 KOs) in Loei Thailand. The fight was a non-stop war and the difference that tilted the verdict in Kiatniwat’s favor were knockdowns he scored in the first and tenth rounds that over the brave Lebron. The underdog Dominican boxer proved to be a formidable foe being the constant aggressor from rounds two to nine. The visitor had Kiatniwat badly hurt in the fifth round but was unable to close the show.

At the end of the slugfest, judge Raul Caiz Jr saw it 113-113 while judge Takeshi Shimikawa had it 116-112 for Kiatniwat as did judge Byun Moo Kim who scored a totally off-the-mark 117-109. Lebron’s manager Belgica Pena protested the decision saying that the two Asian judges showed bias in favor of the Thai boxer. “I believe the third judge should have been neutral – American Canadian or a European. This said we are willing to return to Thailand for a rematch with Kiatniwat.”

Kondo stops bloodied IBF #10 Patomsuk in four

By Joe Koizumi

Former Japanese lightweight champ Akihiro Kondo (22-6-1, 11 KOs), 140, decked an important victory when he halted IBF #10 junior welterweight Patomsuk Pathompthong (29-4-1, 18 KOs), 140, because of the Thailander’s bad bleeding at 1:55 of the fourth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The shaven skulled Thailander started well, but Kondo caught him with a solid right and had him rubbery-legged in the closing seconds of the opening session, when the home-towner bloodied him around the left optic with legal shots. The second and third saw Kondo take the initiative with more accurate and effective combinations to the still shaky opponent. Having Patomsuk examined by the ring physician time and again, the third man finally declared a halt to save such a gory contestant as Patomsuk midway in round four.

But Mora is confident he can beat the 12:1 odds. “I just continue educating people about the sweet science and letting them know that power is not the number one aspect you need to be successful. It’s your agility, techniques, your defense, body shots, the strategy, it’s following that strategy.

“Like I said, I think he possesses everything that I don’t. But I have the experience. I think I take a better shot from experience with Danny and I think I follow my game plan more than Danny.
