Sato to meet official challenger Lopez

By Joe Koizumi

Newly crowned WBC super-flyweight champ Yota Sato (24-2-1, 12 KOs), an elongated Japanese speedster, will make his initial defense against official challenger Sylvester Lopez (19-3-1, 15 KOs), a Filipino hard-puncher, in Yokohama, Japan, on July 8.

Ohba, who respects Floyd Mayweather and always attempts to imitate his style, often stayed with his back to the ropes, which should be corrected not to lose more points from the viewpoint of aggressiveness. Ohba displayed good jabs and solid straight rights to the onrushing Filipino. (more…)

Mares, Moreno win in El Paso

Photos: Tom Casino/Showtime

Unbeaten former bantamweight world champion Abner Mares (24-0-1, 13 KOs) hammered out a twelve round unanimous decision over former two-time world champion Eric “Little Hands of Steel” Morel (46-3, 23 KOs) to claim the vacant WBC super bantamweight belt on Saturday night at UTEP’s Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas. Mares was faster and busier as he piled up the rounds en route to a 120-107, 119-109, 119-109.

Mares, who recently vacated the IBF bantamweight title, brought considerable power up to 122 pounds and seemed to sacrifice none of his hand speed. “I felt a lot stronger at this weight,” said Mares. I felt complete. I have to say Eric was very strong. I was surprised he withstood the pressure. He went out like a true champion. That last round was a great round for both of us. I feel I still need to improve. I am still learning. Sometimes I make it brawl when I don’t have to, so there’s definitely more I can do.”

WBA bantamweight “super” champion Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno (33-1-1, 12 KOs) made the tenth successful defense of his 118lb belt with a one-sided ninth round stoppage of David “Morita” de la Mora (24-2, 17 KOs). Moreno dropped de la Mora in rounds two and six and de la Mora indicated he had enough after round nine. (more…)

Balzsay dropped Sartison in the twelfth round and then battered him to get a late stoppage. It was a close and competitive fight until Balzsay broke it open at the end. Time was 2:25.

Former WBO light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (38-2, 30 KOs) scored a clear cut ten round unanimous decision over Vikapita Meroro (21-4, 9 KOs). Braehmer dropped Meroro in round four and pressured Meroro all the way, rocking him on several occasions.

Cruiserweight contender Rakhim Chakhkiev (13-0, 10 KOs) brutalized former “Contender” star Jaidon Codrington (20-3, 16 KOs). The former Olympic Gold Medalist dropped Codrington twice in the first round, the second time for the count. Time was 1:56.

Former WBA heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev (29-2-1, 18 KOs) scored a third round KO over Billy Zumbrun (25-13-1, 15 KOs). Two brutal knockdowns scored by Chagaev in the third round. Time was 1:26.

In a rematch, heavyweight Juan Carlos Gomez (50-3, 38 KOs) won a controversial fourth round TKO over Darnell “The-Ding-A-Ling Man” Wilson (24-15-3, 20 KOs). Wilson dropped the former cruiserweight champion Gomez at the end of round three, but the fight was waved off in the fourth due to what appeared to be not a very bad cut suffered by Wilson. Correction: In their previous fight, Wilson won a deserved majority decision over Gomez.

Former female featherweight world champion Ina Menzer (29-1, 10 KOs) outpointed Doris Koehler (8-11-1, 3 KOs) over eight.

After being the aggressor and establishing a solid body attack in the first round, Stevenson let his hands go in the second and didn’t stop. A left hand early in the barrage seemed to stun the Argentine fighter and from there on it was bombs away as the hometown fighter pressured and didn’t let up.

Ariza leaves Pacquiao’s training camp

Report and photo by Nick Giongco

Trainer Freddie Roach told Fightnews and Manila Bulletin on Saturday that conditioning coach Alex Ariza has left the training camp of Manny Pacquiao and is en route to the US to meet up with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Roach is in Baguio City, a mountain resort city 150 miles north of Manila, to help Pacquiao get ready for Tim Bradley for their June 8 slugfest at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. “I was supposed to be picked up by my driver at 10 am at The Manor Hotel to get to the gym but I had to take the taxi because my driver didn’t show up,” said Roach. When Roach finally got in touch with his driver, he was shocked to learn that he was in Manila after driving Ariza there to catch an evening flight to Los Angeles.

So Roach was left with no choice but to tap Marvin Somodio, a local trainer who has impressed Roach with his training methods. Roach said it was obvious that Ariza did not prioritize Pacquiao. “My priority is Manny Pacquiao,” said Roach. Ariza was reported to have said in his twitter account that he got the green light from Pacquiao himself to temporarily leave camp when they met Friday night and that they’ll reunite next month at the Wild Card.
