Boxing Result

Ilie upsets Erittu

By Giampiero Marras at ringside

In a stunner, underdog Giulian Ilie of Romania stopped previously unbeaten Salvatore Erittu of Italy in round two and clinched the vacant IBF I/C title at 200 lbs. Ilie (now 18-4-2) was coming from another win on Italian soil, having defeated Cristian Dolzanelli in December last year. Erittu (now 21-1) was supposed to restore the Italian pride but clearly Ilie had other plans as he started at full speed and tried to bring the fight to the much taller Erittu. After an even first round, Ilie was able to find his distance and connected with a clean right hook to Erittu’s chin: the Italian contender was up but still wobbled and, after another barrage by Ilie, referee Vincent Dupas of France stopped the fight for good.

On the undercard, 17-years-old Joe Calzaghe Jr., the son of former world champ Joe Calzaghe, had his first ever amateur bout drawing versus Marco Satta in three.

Alberto Mura promoted.

Canelo ready for next step

By Francisco Salazar

Saul Alvarez has done something that few fighters have done before: make their professional debut before most teenagers are allowed to have a license to drive. Almost six years later and remaining undefeated after 38 fights, Alvarez has slowly moved from a special attraction to legitimate boxer. Alvarez would agree with the many people involved in the sport of boxing that he has a long way to go before he could even be considered a legitimate champion in his weight class. Although he has a world title belt at 154 pounds, Alvarez is eager to learn in the gym in order to face the top fighters in the division. Something he wants and is eager to do. (more…)

Tongia stops Giltrow

Photo and story by Ray Wheatley/World of boxing

In a nationally televised title bout, Australian light middleweight champion Tyrone “The Cyclone” Tongia (17-2,9KOs) stopped James “The Goondiwindi Gun” Giltrow (12-3,7KOs) on Friday at the Mansfield Tavern in Brisbane, Queesnland, Australia. Tongia was impressive as he connected consistently with effective head and body punches and controlled the action in all of the rounds. In round eight Tongia dropped Giltrow with two body shots and the referee crowned Tongia the winner at 2:07 of the round. Tongia captured the national 154 pound title in 2010 by outpointing Andrew Godsen in a closely contested bout and stopped Pat Rullo in eight rounds of a title bout in 2011. (more…)

Rosarito fight report

By Felipe Leon

On midnight, September 16th in 1810, a catholic priest by the name of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla uttered a cry of “Viva Mexico” which marked the beginning of the Mexican War of Independence. To commemorate, Tijuana’s Zanfer Promotions along with Mexican mega channel Canal Azteca traveled a few miles south to the seaside hamlet of Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico, to present a seven bout fight card. Equivalent to the United States’ 4th of July, Mexico’s Independence Day is celebrated with much flag waving and fireworks. It was no different inside the Ernesto Ruffo Apel Municipal Gymnasium as former world champ Julio Cesar “Pingo” Miranda (36-6-1, 29KOs) did short work of Colombian Juan Carlos Leon in two rounds of the super flyweight contest.

Ortiz: Mayweather is done

By Francisco Salazar

Entering his April 16th bout against previously-unbeaten Andre Berto, Victor Ortiz had heard the numbers of journalists predict that he was way in over his head against Berto. Whether that served as motivation or finally showcasing the skills that once made him a “can’t miss” prospect, Ortiz defeated Berto and fulfilled his dream of winning a world title belt. Now he faces a tall order in fighting the unbeaten and flamboyant Floyd Mayweather this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Again there are those who think Ortiz is biting off more than he can chew against Mayweather. Maybe so, but Ortiz is a different fighter now than what he was five months ago. (more…)

Celebrating his 30th birthday as well as Mexican Independence Day, WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (50-7, 44 KOs) scored an impressive second round TKO over Rogers Mtagwa (27-15-2, 19 KOs) on Thursday night at the County Coliseum in El Paso, Texas. After an even round one, Gonzalez opened up in round two and rocked Mtagwa with a series of big shots. The iron-jawed Tanzanian was definitely hurt, but the bout was waved off by referee Guadalupe Garcia before we could see if Mtagwa would have weathered the storm. Time was 2:15.

After the fight, Gonzalez again called out the best of his division. “I want the best, Elio Rojas, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Juan Manuel Lopez and the others at this weight. Thanks El Paso, Viva Mexico!” said Gonzalez. Manager Oswaldo Kuchle added “Tonight Johnny G has been confirmed as one of the best fighters in the world and one of the biggest punchers today. We are very confident of facing the best and winning those fights.” For more details and photos click here…

In a quick beating, former world champ Julio Cesar “Pingo” Miranda (36-6, 29KOs) stopped Luis Carlos Leon (13-5, 11KOs) in two short rounds in the main event bout in Rosarito, Mexico. Leon looked game enough as both fighters displayed brisk action in the first. Leon even scored a scorching combination to the head of Miranda to start the second but one too left hooks to the body from Miranda did the trick as “Pingo” control of the second half of the round and punished Leon to the body until the end of the round Leon refused to come out in the third giving Miranda the KO win.

In the co-feature, late sub Felipe “Gallito” Orucuta (22-1, 7KOs) scored an impressive fifth round knock out of Colombian Deiby Perez (14-5, 8KOs). The Mexico City bantamweight took a couple of rounds to study his opponent but by the third on it was only a matter of time as he connected well placed jabs, right hands and body shots. Perez held his own but a hard left hook to the mouth of the stomach sent Perez down to the count. Official time was :23 of the fifth round.

Boxing back in Hollywood, FL

By Phil Doherty

The elusive Florida Panther remains one of the most endangered mammals on Earth. He is a solitary hunter active in the Florida swamps and marshlands between the hours of dusk till dawn. Panther Promotions honors both the name and character of this noble, tenacious creature with a night of increasingly “endangered” boxing between dusk to dawn on September 23rd from The Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. Separating themselves from the current promotional “pack” during their inaugural show here in July, Panther proved young fighters pitted together in truly tough fights remains a winning formula.

Panther’s old-school boxing philosophy continues with the recently-finalized undercard of the “Future Superstars” card. The main event featuring former lightweight world title challengers Daniel “The Prophet” Attah (26-7-1, 9 KOs) and Edner “Cherry Bomb” Cherry (28-6-2, 16 KOs) will cap an incredible mix of seven hotly-contested preliminary bouts. In addition to the intriguing co-main event between welterweights Damian “Devo” Frias (18-4-1, 9 KOs) and Henry Crawford (22-1-1, 9 KOs), Panther lined up some exceedingly explosive action.
