“There’s nothing riding on this with the sport,” says UFC legend Randy Couture, who is matched up against former boxing champion James “Lights Out” Toney in the co-main of UFC 118, August 28 on Pay-Per-View . . .  Click here for more

Herrera takes on Alatorre

It’s an evening of hard-hitting boxing action — primarily showcasing the junior welterweight division — on Friday night, August 20 when Thompson Boxing Promotions presents a five-bout card billed as “Path to Glory” at Omega Products International in Corona, California.

Huck plays it cool

Photo Wende

Part of WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck’s preparations for Saturday’s highly anticipated title defense against Matt Godfrey in Erfurt, Germany has included time in an extreme cold -110° celsius cryochamber which helps regeneration after a draining workout. “It feels like an ice cube you suck with your tongue,” he described. “Only both you and your tongue feel like ice cubes at the same time. The icy cold hurts a little at first. But after you’ve left the cryochamber, you feel good. I had a funny experience once because I had just taken a shower before entering the chamber, my hair wasn’t completely dry yet. The cold froze my hair and broke parts off!”

Pascal rose to the occasion

By Graham Houston

You could put Saturday’s light-heavyweight title bout between Jean Pascal and Chad Dawson into the “What if” category of contest, as in “What would have happened if Dawson had fought with more fire?” or “What would have happened if the head clash hadn’t ended matters in the 11th round?”

Something similar happened in March when Arthur Abraham lost by disqualification against Andre Dirrell, also in the 11th round and with Abraham making a late charge. People wondered if Dirrell could have held off Abraham in the closing few minutes and observers will no doubt be debating whether Pascal could have survived a Dawson onslaught in the final round.

Legend of Dan Donnelly’s arm

By Ron Jackson

One of the most enduring boxing legends is the one of a famous fighter whose preserved right arm was still exhibited nearly two centuries after his death. It is part of the story of an Irishman, Dan Donnelly, whose exploits in the days of bare-knuckle fighting made him a folk hero in the early 19th century. Among the many legends surrounding Donnelly was that the Prince Regent awarded him a knighthood. The fascinating story of Dan Donnelly can now be read in Patrick Myler’s follow-up to his first book on Donnelly, Regency Rogue – Dan Donnelly, his Life and Legends, published in 1976. Titled Dan Donnelly 1788-1820 – Pugilist, Publican, Playboy the new book is a 200-page paperback, published by Lilliput Press, Dublin. (more…)

Pascal defeats Dawson

UPDATED: WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (26-1, 16 KOs) scored an eleven round technical decision over previously unbeaten WBC interim light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (29-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal before a crowd of 8122 enthusiastic fans. Pascal also captures Dawson’s IBO belt along with the Ring Magazine vacant 175 pound championship.

A desperate Dawson went for the KO in round eleven and looked like he might do it before suffering a bad cut from an accidental headbutt that sent the bout to the scorecards.

Final scores read 106-103, 106-103 and an inexplicable tally of 108-101 from the lone Canadian judge, Jack Woodburn who somehow gave the 11th round to Pascal, despite the fact the reigning champion was hanging on weathering a fierce barrage from Dawson who was able to land a debilitating uppercut early in the round.

In a direct rematch, WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo Moreno (30-1-1, 10 KOs) again won a close split decision over former interim champ Nehomar Cermeño (19-2, 11 KOs) at the Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City.

Moreno won their first fight by split decision in Venezuala five months ago.

In a clash for the vacant WBA middleweight title, unbeaten WBA #1 ranked Gennady Golovkin (19-0, 16 KOs) needed just 58 seconds to annihilate #13 ranked Milton Nuñez (21-2-1, 19 KOs) in the first round. The WBA belt became vacant when Felix Sturm was elevated to WBA “super champion” status.

Vazquez wins IBF lightweight title

Garcia stops Lock in 126lb eliminator

Photos by Pete Susens

IBF #3 lightweight Miguel Vazquez (26-3, 12 KOs) scored a lopsided unanimous decision over #1 Ji Hoon Kim (21-6, 18 KOs) to claim the vacant IBF lightweight championship on Saturday night at the Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas. Vazquez comprehensively outboxed the aggressive Kim, who rarely took a step back. Vazquez’ movement almost totally negated Kim’s pressure on the way to a well-earned 119-109, 120-108, 118-110 win. The title had been vacant since Nate Campbell lost the belt on the scale in February 2009. Ali Funeka had a chance to win the belt that night, but lost a majority decision. Joan Guzman fought Funeka last November for the vacant belt, but that bout ended in a draw.

In an IBF featherweight eliminator, unbeaten IBF #7 rated Mikey Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs) scored an impressive eleventh round KO over rugged #10 rated Cornelius Lock (19-6-1, 12 KOs). Garcia dropped Lock in round three with a huge right hand and proceeded to deal Lock a brutal beating. The fight was waved off when Garcia floored a thoroughly beaten Lock again in round eleven. Time was 1:09. (more…)

Ex-champ Garay wins in 15 sec

Also, Bopp retains WBA/WBO female title

Former WBA Light heavyweight champion Hugo Garay (33-5, 18 KOs) of Argentina got back into the win column in a big way crushing Marcelo Leandro Da Silva of Brazil (19-3, 14 KOs) by way of first round knockout. Literally seconds after the fighters touched gloves in an act of sportsmanship to start the fight Garay landed a solid right to the chin of Da Silva sending him crashing to the canvas where he was counted out. The official time of the bout was just 15 seconds. Garay entered the bout off of back to back losses to Chris Henry and Gabriel Campillo to whom he lost his world title in 2009.

In the main event of the evening WBA & WBO female light flyweight champion Yessica Bopp (13-0, 5 KOs) of Argentina retained her titles with a unanimous decision victory over Ana Arrazola (17-5-3, 15 KOs) of Mexico. Bopp gave up a major height advantage to Arrazola but was able to dominate easily from the outside and inside all night long. Each round seemed to be a reptition of the other as Bopp won both the offensive and defensive battles throughout the contest. The official judges scores were 100-90,100-89, and 100-89 all in favor of Bopp.

The event took place at the Club Deportivo Libertad, Sunchales, in Santa Fe, Argentina. Osvaldo Rivero promoted the event.
