Victor Barragan (12-7, 3 KOs) of Oxnard, Calif., put an end to the two-year win streak of Las Vegas’ Henry Namauu (9-4, 5 KOs) tonight at the Rio on a card promoted by Crown Boxing. In what might be the best Vegas club show in years – and the highest action bout of 2011, so far – the two cruiserweights battered one another through 10 rounds – but Namauu found himself on the short end and on the verge of a stoppage in the final round. Scores favored Barragan 99-91, 97-93 and 98-92. In the four-round female co-main, super flyweight Mandy LaPointe (3-1-1, 1 KO) and undefeated Annette Agredano (5-0-1) fought to a majority round, scores of 38-38 twice and, somehow, 40-36, LaPointe, Vegas featherweight Rocco Santamouro (7-0) had to settle for yet another win by decision, though he did knock down human bop bag Gabe Garcia (4-7-1, 1 KO) on his way to win with scores of 40-35 and 39-36 twice. In the opening bout, Vegas featherweight Rocco Espinoza (1-0) had a successful debut in a four-round war with Armando Gonzales (1-1, 1 KO), winning with scores of 40-36 twice and 39-37. Stay tuned for a full report and photos tomorrow.

Boxing continues to conjure varied images in the minds of those who still pay it any. One lingering impression of the sport remains that of avaristic corruption, which plunders the very soul of this purest human competition. The shady dealings of generations of unethical and unsavory characters rightfully lend credence to these criticisms. However the true character of boxing lies in the fighter’s urge to beat the odds fighting for a greater good. Some fighters fight simply to support their families. Some fight to honor a fallen loved one. Some fight to lift up a community. (more…)
Former world champion Eric Morel (44-2, 22 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over late sub and three time title challenger Luis “Titi” Maldonado (37-5-1, 28 KOs) in a super bantamweight clash on Friday night at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. Maldonado was down in round one, and referee Raul Caiz Sr. called a halt to the bout at the end of round four.
Unbeaten super bantamweight Randy Caballero (9-0, 5 KOs) scored a second round TKO over Felix Perez (7-3, 3 KOs). Caballero dropped Perez in the first and the referee waved it off at 2:42 of round two.
Lightweight Ramon Valadez (7-1, 4 KOs) scored a highlight reel first round knockout over Rob Diezel (5-4, 1 KO). Time was 1:42.

Friday night’s boxing card at Digibet Pferdesportpark Berlin-Karlshorst promoted by ARENA Sports-Promotion and Prime Time Events & Entertainment ended in a shock. Former WIBF and WIBA lightweight championesse Rola El-Halabi was shot by her stepfather and former manager in the dressing room while preparing for an IBF championship bout which should have been the last fight on the night.
El-Halabi and two members of the local security staff were hit and injured by bullets before police could end the incident and arrest the shooter. The incident happened after eight of the scheduled ten fights had already been finished.
“Of course, our thoughts and prayers are with Rola at the moment”, said Prime Time promoter Eva Rolle. “I sincerely hope that she will recover from this assassination attempt fast and return to the ring soon. Unfortunately, this dramatic incident overshadows the great performances in the other fights. We’ve seen a great night of boxing until it was ended in such a brutal way.” (more…)

In the action packed main event of ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights from the Fox Theatre at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT, Hank Lundy battled ten rounds with Patrick Lopez. This bout was for the NABF lightweight belt and it came down to one thing, fundamentals. Whichever fighter during the contest, whether it was Lundy or Lopez, when either of them landed with their jab, they were able to parlay that into powerful combinations. Lundy went after Lopez early throwing many shots with Lopez backed against the ropes. Lopez fought back well with good body work on Lundy. As the fight progressed over time, Lundy’s offense became less and less while Lopez continued at a good pace and almost had Lundy out towards the end of the fight, however a last round spark from both fighters made the judge’s decision a tough one. In the end with the crowd chanting for Lopez, the final scorecards were tallied. The final scorecards were read and by scores of 99-91, 97-92, and 95-94, “Hammering” Hank Lundy captured the unanimous decision and the vacant NABF title. Although the decision was an unpopular one amongst the crowd, they all can agree that it was a terrific main event for the capacity crowd at the Fox Theatre. Many journalists in press row had the fight much closer than the scores indicated by the judges. The nearly sold out fight card titled “Coming Attractions” was promoted by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports. With the victory, Lundy improves to (20-1-1, 10 KOs) while Lopez in an amazing battle falls to (20-4, 12 KOs).
Former world title challenger, New Haven, CT’s own Elvin Ayala (22-5-1, 10 KOs) returned to his winning ways by stopping a game challenge from Rhode Island’s Joe Gardner (7-2-1, 1 KO). Ayala threw the stronger punches throughout the entire fight on Gardner. Gardner kept away with his jab and displayed good speed and footwork in doing so. It was a great back and forth fight until Ayala landed powerful hooks on Gardner that knocked him down twice in round four. Gardner was unable to get off of the stool in between rounds, thus giving Elvin Ayala the fourth round TKO victory at 3:00 of the round, adding his name back in the super middleweight division.
Super middleweight “Mr. Providence” Vladine Biosse (11-0, 6 KOs) remained undefeated with a fifth round stoppage of the durable challenge of Tim Connors (10-3, 7 KOs). Biosse dropped Connors early in the second round with a big left hook, however Connors was able to continue the fight as his opponent continued to batter him throughout. Finally in the fifth round, both fighters exchanged bombs, which eventually led to a huge Biosse right hand that sent Connors to the canvas for the final time. Connors was up at the count of eight but referee Eddie Claudio called a halt to the bout at 37 seconds of round five, giving Biosse the TKO victory and the sixth stoppage of his young career. (more…)

In the main event of Windy City Fight Night 16, presented by Dominic Pesoli’s 8 Count Productions, at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, local super middleweight Donovan “DA BOMB” George outgunned and stopped slick boxer Maxell Taylor the eighth round. George (22-1-1, 19 KOs) pressed forward the whole night, winging shots at his opponent’s head, body, arms, and elbows. Baltimore’s Taylor (15-3-1, 6 KOs) circled, landing jabs and the occasional combination from the outside. George’s pressure paid off in the eigth, when he caught Taylor in the corner, opening up with furious lefts and rights sending Taylor sprawling to the canvas. The game Taylor got to his feet, but soon after George pinned him to the ropes letting loose with an onslaught of unanswered punches, forcing referee Gino Rodriguez to wave it off at 2:05 of Round 8.

In a clash for the WBO super flyweight Latino title Juan Mercedes (25-3, 17 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over David Quijano (13-2, 9 KOs) on Friday night at the Coliseo Héctor Solá Bezares in Caguas, Puerto Rico. After ten action-packed, give-and-take rounds, Mercedes prevailed by scores of 97-93, 97-93, 96-94.
Former amateur world champion McWilliams Arroyo (7-1, 6 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Erickson Martell (4-3-1, 3 KOs) in a flyweight clash. Arroyo dropped Martell in round one and got the TKO in round five when he staggered Martell and the bout was waved off. Time was 1:53.

Australian light heavyweight Frank Ciampa (10-17, 5 KOs) stopped Jeff Stutt(4-10, 4 KOs) in three rounds at the Bolton Park Basketball Stadium in Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia on Friday. Stutt was dropped in round two and round three by solid head shots and referee Brian McMahon crowned Giampa at 0:23 of round three when Stutt was in trouble and could not defend himself. Ciampa has boxed former WBA light heavyweight champion Danny Green and also former WBA middleweight challenger Jamie Pittman. Former WBO cruiserweight challenger Mohamed Azzaoui (25-5-3, 8 KOs) was ruled unfit to continue by the ringside doctor in his contest with Anthony McCracken (13-5-1, 6 KOs) after he was hit to the back of the head and said he could not continue. The fight was declared a technical draw. Time 2:50. Azzaoui challenged Enzo Maccarinelli unsuccessfully in 2007 for the WBO title losing in four rounds. McCracken dropped a twelve round decision in his most recent bout to former world rated heavyweight Shane Cameron in 2010. Promoter: Charlie Liparota.
Former World Heavyweight Champion Sergei Liakhovich has been forced to withdraw from his planned fight with Johnnie White on the undercard of Tomasz Adamek vs. Kevin McBride on Saturday, April 9th at Newark’s Prudential Center Arena, Kathy Duva of Main Events announced today. “Unfortunately, Sergei reported that he suffered a minor rib injury in training, yesterday, and his doctor recommended that he wait until at least mid-April before he engages in any contact,” she explained. “We had been looking forward to presenting Sergei for the first time in Newark and we are so sorry that his first appearance with Main Events will have to wait, but what is most important is that Sergei recover fully from his injury.” Main Events is searching for an alternate date for Liakhovich and plans to make an announcement as soon as it is arranged. He is rumored to be in the frame as a possible tune-up opponent for Vitali Klitschko in June.

Despite the packed house at the Four Points Sheraton in “America’s Finest City” San Diego, this past Thursday night, much was left to be desired from the “Champion’s of Tomorrow” fight card presented by Bobby D. Presents with Jorge Marron Productions. The much-anticipated return of the very popular Amaris “Diamond Girl” Quintana had to be postponed in the main event due to a late eye exam of her opponent Katarina De La Cruz. The exam left De La Cruz’s dilated up to fight time causing Quintana to sit this one out which left the rest of the night void of any true fireworks. (more…)

WBO world Champion Robert Stieglitz is facing some changes for his upcoming fight as WBA champion Dimitri Sartison will not be able to challenge him in the highly anticipated unification fight on April 9 in Magdeburg.

According to the doctor in charge Dimitri Sartison could return to action in approximately six months. “The injury is very tragic. I wish Dimitri all the best and a fast recovery. After the information about the injury we have started our search for a new opponent who is currently in training and there are already a few great options. But we have to talk about a few contractual details before saying a name,” SES promoter Ulf Steinforth stated.
The new opponent for Robert Stieglitz will be announced very shortly.
