Blueprint: Evans-Ortiz II

UFC 133 is LIVE on PPV Aug. 6!

Rashad Evans and Tito Ortiz will dance for the second time this Saturday night.

Forty-nine months ago, Evans and Ortiz squared off in what was a turning point for each of their careers. Evans was taking a major step up in quality of competition. The then-undefeated prospect seemed like he had all the tools to be great, but nobody knew for certain whether he could take his game to the next level. After 15 minutes in the cage with Ortiz, there was no doubt that “Suga” was the real deal . . . click here for more by Michael DiSanto, UFC.com

Matsushita wins OPBF 118lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photo: Boxing Beat

Japan-based Filipino boys battled in a quest for the vacant OPBF bantam belt renounced by also a Philippine import Malcolm Tunacao on Sunday in Kobe, Japan, where Rolly Matsushita (AKA Rolly Lunas; 30-8-1, 17 KOs), 118, dispatched Zerofit Jerope Zuiyama (AKA Jerope Mercado; 24-2-3, 8 KOs), 118, at 0:58 of the eighth round in a scheduled twelve.

Though regarded as a competitive fight, it became a one-sided slaughter from the opening round, when Rolly decked the lanky rival with vicious rights twice and apparently took the leadoff. Jerope, from the second on, fought back hard, but Rolly looked much more effective in swapping punches in the close quarter. The sixth saw Rolly again floor him with a solid right, and it became more and more lopsided as the contest progressed. Rolly, in round eight, dropped the fading foe with a left uppercut for the fourth time in this bout, and a towel was thrown in while the referee Fukuchi was still counting. In this case, it (towel-tossing during the third man’s counting) is registered as knockout in Japan. (more…)

Cageside by Przemyslaw Garczarczyk and Tim Hobscheid

In a stunning turn of events, Dan Henderson (28-8) realized a moment he waited an entire career for. A quick move out the back door and a well-placed uppercut turned the tables on Fedor Emelianenko (31-4), the greatest heavyweight fighter in the history of MMA.
After a Fedor combo put Henderson on the ground, “The Last Emperor” over-committed to the finish, allowing Henderson to escape and take his back. Henderson followed up with a quick uppercut and a series of punches that forced Herb Dean to stop the fight at 4:12 of Round 1 . . . Click here for more

Nashiro defeats Perez

By Joe Koizumi

Formerly two-time WBA super-fly champ Nobuo Nashiro (15-3-1, 9 KOs), 116.5, made a fine comeback as he outpunched and outlegged previously unbeaten WBO#8 Filipino national titlist Rey Perez (11-1, 2 KOs), 115.75, to pound out a unanimous verdict (99-92 and 97-94 twice) over ten fast frames on Saturday in Osaka, Japan.

Nashiro forfeited his WBA belt to Hugo Cazares in a rematch in May of the previous year and failed to capture the WBC throne, losing a close but unanimous nod (114-113, 116-113 and 116-111) to elongated Mexican Tomas Rojas this February. Nashiro, a 29-year-old shaven-skulled ex-champ, utilized his speed on hand and foot, piling up points steadily. He kept connecting with solid one-two combinations upstairs and downstairs. Perez, 20, threw sharp jabs and left-right combos to the elusive Japanese with less precision. Nashiro was an obvious victor, but WBO youth champ Perez, a good loser, won the praise of the crowd.

Jo Jo Dan stops Azore

By Boxing Bob Newman

WBC #5 Welterweight Ionut Dan Ion, aka “Jo Jo” Dan shook the rust off on Friday night in Port-of- Spain, Trinidad and dispatched late sub Iwan Azore of Guyana via TKO3, picking up the vacant WBC Caribbean Boxing Federation (CABOFE) Welterweight title in the process. Dan’s original opponent Floyd Trumpet fell out with less than two weeks to go, and Azore was eager to step in against the top flight Dan. What he possessed in the way of ambition, Azore lacked in skill though, as Dan had his way, finally unleashing a volley of unanswered punches in Azore’s own corner, forcing the referee Hector Afu to stop the bout at 2:45 of the third. Dan also picked up the Universal Boxing Organization for his troubles while moving to 29-1, 14 KOs. Azore slides to 13-4, 3 KOs. (more…)

Full Report: Pornsawan-Rachman

Report and photos by Jeff Pamungkas

Not only did he not receive a hometown decision, WBA mini-flyweight champion Muhammad Rachman was seemingly robbed in front of his supporters at Indosiar Studio, Jakarta, Indonesia on Saturday. Fighting with an excellent counter-punching strategy, Rachman (64-11-5, 33 KOs) landed many more clean power punches, but it wasn’t enough to defeat Pornsawan Porpramook of Thailand (23-3-1, 16 KOs). During the full twelve rounds, Rachman landed many punches to his opponent’s head and body, while Porpramook’s blows were mostly blocked by Rachman’s double cover, shoulders and arms, otherwise just air. Rachman’s counter punching strategy apparently couldn’t be easily understood by the judges, as they seemed to rewarded Porpramook’s aggressiveness and durability during 12 rounds, even though it was totally ineffective aggression.
