Witherspoon-Guivas: Full Report

By John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com
Photos: Darryl Cobb, Jr./dcobbjr.com

The Playground in Atlantic City debuted as a boxing venue Saturday night, and in the main event, heavyweight Chazz Witherspoon, 34-3, 26 KOs, trounced Nick Guivas, 11-3-2, 9 KOs, for a third round stoppage. Witherspoon had all the advantages in the scheduled 10-rounder, so there were no fun and games for Guivas at this playground. Seven of the ten bouts on the new seaside facility’s inaugural show ended early, but the action was entertaining and well worth watching. (more…)

More on the Socarras-Martinez situation

Promoter Ahmet Oener contacted Fightnews.com to tell his side of the situation regarding the aborted fight between Hairon Socarras and Hanzel Martinez scheduled for Saturday night at Wynwood Stadium in Miami, Florida.

“It is true that Socarras was slightly over the limit,” said Oener. “I think 1.8 lbs. are not a big deal – but overweight is overweight. As you know sometimes it happens that fighters fail to make weight. We tried to solve the problem. Socarras tried to lose the extra pounds, he was in the sauna, he worked out but he couldn’t do it. We talked to the local commission, to the WBC and to the matchmaker who brought Martinez as an opponent. (more…)

Multi-division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (62-8, 45 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over game late sub Eric Watkins (12-10-2, 5 KOs) on Sunday night at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. Watkins delivered a valiant effort and had some moments, especially attacking Jones to the body. Jones, however, was both faster and the harder puncher as he wobbled Watkins several times. A left hook on the chin at the bell in round six laid out Watkins to end it. Time was 2:59. Jones now has fights scheduled on August 29 against Danny Santiago (33-7-1, 19 KOs) in Sint Maarten and on September 12 against Tony Moran (15-6, 5 KOs) in Liverpool.

Lightweight Jason “The American Boy” Litzau (29-3-1, 22 KOs) and Hylon Williams Jr. (16-1-1, 3 KOs) battled to an eight round draw. In his first bout since 2012, Litzau pressed the action against 2008 Olympic alternate Williams in an entertaining fight in which both fighters had their moments. Scores were 77-75 Williams, 76-76, 79-73 Litzau.

Featherweight Jonathan Arrellano (16-6-1, 4 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over local favorite Mike Oliver (26-6-1, 8 KOs). Arrellano, who took the fight on six days notice, ended a close fight by dropping Oliver with a huge left hook at the end of round four during a wild exchange. Between rounds Oliver said he had a headache and the ring doc pulled the plug.

Results from Fort McDowell, Arizona

By David Finger

Louis Rose made an argument that he might be the most improved fighter in the Southwest with an eighth round KO win over prospect Andrew Hernandez on Saturday night at the We Ko Pa Casino in Fort McDowell, Arizona. Rose, who was coming into the fight on the heels of a knockout over undefeated Milorad Zizic back in March, defended his “Junior” NABF middleweight title, improving to 13-2-1, 5 KOs with the win. Hernandez drops to 9-2-1, 1 KO.

Welterweight Benjamin Whitaker scored the biggest win of his career after dominating tough Coloradan John Grimaldo over eight rounds. Scores were 79-72, 79-73, and 80-71. Whitaker improves to 10-1, 2 KOs while Grimaldo drops to 9-4, 6 KOs.

Also on the card super featherweight Keenan Carbajal (of the famous Carbajal fighting family) won a six round unanimous decision over Jose Silveria. Carbajal improves to 7-2-1, 4 KOs with the win while Silveria drops to 15-16, 6 KOs. (more…)

Oliver ready for “Knockout” finale

Veteran featherweight Mike Oliver (26-5-1, 8 KOs) finds himself on the verge of a career-reviving opportunity. Oliver will face Jonathan Arrellano (15-6-2, 3 KOs) tonight in the Season Two finale of the reality series “Knockout” tonight. The bout will be aired on NuvoTV. Arellano was actually a late replacement for unbeaten Rocco Santomauro who was pulled from the show at the last moment (more on that to follow). It’s not an issue for Oliver who says he’s in excellent shape and ready to win the finale.

You were inactive for awhile prior to getting back into the mix with the tournament opportunity. What was the reason for you inactivity?

I was incarcerated for about a year. I caught up out there in the streets. No excuses. It was a mistake on my part, but I’m back on the right track living right and training hard.

How important is this fight to your career?

It’s a must win. Losing is not an option nor is it even on my mind that I could lose. (more…)

Socarras-Martinez is off

By Felipe Leon

The proposed vacant WBC International Silver super bantamweight title fight between undefeated Cuban Hairon Socarras (14-0-1, 10 KOs) and Hanzel “Rude Boy” Martinez (22-2, 17 KOs) scheduled at the Wynwood Stadium in Miami, Florida, is apparently off after Socarras did not make weight yesterday at the official weigh-in. The fight card is presented by Arena-Box Promotions.

In an exclusive interview, Martinez was desperate to know the boxing world of what transpired at the weigh-in so that the powers that be don’t try to skew the truth. “I came in at 121.4 pounds and Socarras came in at 123.8 lbs. My team and I quickly demanded for him to drop the weight to the official limit of 122 pounds but we realized that he was drinking fluids and eating fruit. Somebody from the promotion told us to come down and that they had worked it out but we didn’t know with whom since I manage myself. The commission then informed us that he wasn’t going to drop any more weight and they offered us $1,000 to take the fight instead of the penalty which any other commission would have.”

“I want the story to be heard from me first before they try to change it around to make me look bad,” Martinez sternly stated. “I came in and did my job, came in at the limit and like a lot of Mexicans, I come to fight, to his backyard and we aren’t being treated right by the promotion but more surprisingly by the local commission. I am not going to fight giving him nearly three pounds advantage.”

Tarver-Cunningham ends in draw

By John DiSanto at ringside
Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment

In the main event at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, heavyweights Antonio Tarver, 31-6-1, 22 KOs, and Steve Cunningham, 28-7-1, 13 KOs, fought to a split decision draw. The fight that both fighters had called must win, wound up being a tactical contest with both boxers fighting cautiously.

Cunningham built an early lead with his busier style, but Tarver began closing the gap with his heavier punches. Tarver didn’t throw consistently, but when he landed his punches counted. Once Cunningham felt Tarver’s power, he proceeded with caution and allowed Tarver to stay close on the scorecards. Tarver conserved energy every chance he could and just waited for an opening he could exploit. The result was a slow-moving fight that paled in comparison to the thrilling co-feature between Glowacki and Huck. (more…)

Shocker: Glowacki KOs Huck in eleven

By Matt Richardson at ringside
Photos: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment

It took eight and a half months but boxing fans finally have a clear fight of the year.

And it was in the cruiserweight division.

In a dramatic and violent fight in which both fighters hit the canvas, Poland’s Krzysztof Glowacki upset long-reigning WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck by knocking him out in the eleventh round at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The fight was the co-featured bout to the Antonio Tarver-Steve Cunningham main event on the “Premier Boxing Champions” card on Spike on Friday night.

Huck (38-3-1, 26 KO’s) was attempting to break the record for the most consecutive cruiserweight title defenses in boxing history (14) but his opponent wasn’t so agreeable. Glowacki (25-0, 16 KO’s), fighting in front of a passionate, pro-Polish crowd, hurt Huck in the first and knocked him down once in the eleventh before stopping him along the ropes in the same round. It was the fight in between Glowacki’s early and late success, however, which showed both men’s heart and courage. Glowacki was almost knocked out himself in the sixth after getting drilled with a hard left hook that left him staring up from the canvas.

It was that type of fight. (more…)

Fringe heavyweight contender Artur Szpilka stopped Yasmany Consuegra in the second round of a swing bout after the Tarver-Cunningham main event. Szpilka hurt Consuegra early and Consuegra began complaining of a knee injury. That became worse after he was dropped in the second round. He rose and elected to fight on but when he got to his corner the fight was called off before the third round could begin. Szpilka, who has only lost once, to Bryant Jennings, is now 20-1 with 14 wins by knockout. Consuegra is now 17-2 with 14.

Unbeaten middleweight Maciej Sulecki barely broke a sweat, stopping Jose Rodriguez in the first round. Sulecki, fighting in front of a loyal, pro-Polish crowd dropped Rodriguez quickly before referee Harvey Dock called a halt at the 2:07 mark. Sulecki is now 21-0 with six knockouts; Rodriguez is 21-9 with 13. (more…)
