Bogere stops Tucker

Mary Ann Owen

By Andreas Hale at ringside

Undefeated lightweight Sharif Bogere (15-0, 9 KOs) defeated Martin Tucker (7-6, 3 KOs) via TKO when Tucker quit on the stool at the end of the 1st round after a clash of heads on Friday night at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. The headclash caused a nasty cut over Tucker’s right eye. The doctor said he could continue in between rounds but Tucker claimed he couldn’t see. Therefore, rather than a no contest, the fight is ruled a TKO due to Tucker quitting on the stool.

Undefeated Cuban junior middleweight rising star Erislandy Lara (11-0, 6 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over veteran Danny Perez (34-6, 17 KOs) on Friday night at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Lara dominated the fight from the opening bell, but seemed content to outbox the slower Perez over the full distance rather than up his aggression to try for a memorable KO. Scores were 99-91 on all cards.

Featherweight standout Carlos Velasquez (12-0, 10 KOs) scored a spectacular fourth round knockout over game late replacement Ira Terry (24-3, 14 KOs).

'Mookie' upsets Sanchez

Ringside by Chris Cozzone

Non-televised results from the Hard Rock Hotel’s The Joint in Las Vegas: In a stunning upset, previously unbeaten Puerto Rican welter Hector Sanchez (18-1, 9 KOs) was TKO’d in round five by gutsy  Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis (11-2-1, 4 KOs), of Los Angeles. Pendarvis weathered two early knockdowns and was way ahead on the cards when, in round five, he landed a right hand that floored Sanchez, who tried to make count. Referee Russ Mora stopped the bout at 2:29 when it was apparent that Sanchez was in no shape to continue.

In other results: In a four-round jr. feather bout, Toddy Junior (2-0) of Las Vegas, edged Luis Martinez (1-3-1) of Los Angeles with a majority decision win, scores of 39-37 twice and 38-38. 2008 Olympic heavyweight Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (9-0, 9 KOs), of Tuscaloosa, Ala., made short work of Tyson Cobb (7-2, 6 KOs) of Amarillo, Tex., knocking him out in just 33 seconds. In a six-round lightweight bout, Mike Perez (7-0-1, 3 KOs), of Newark, N.J., battered gutsy Sergi Ganjelashvili (4-5-1) of Key West, Fla., for a unanimous decision with scores of 60-54 twice and 59-55.

In an action packed ESPN2 Friday Night Fights main event for the USBA welterweight title, Danbury, CT’s Delvin Rodriguez (25-4-2, 14 KOs) retained his belt as he won a twelve round unanimous decision over a game “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis (22-5-2, 10 KO’s). Scores of the bout in favor of Rodriguez read 117-110, 119-108, and 118-109. Rodriguez worked off his jab the entire night to setup the hook and right hand. Arnaoutis showed his durability and tenacity throughout as he landed some nice counters in the losing effort. The six bout fight card was promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing.

154 pound Providence, RI prospect Demetrius Andrade (10-0, 7 KOs) scored a six round unanimous decision over an outclassed Geoffrey Spruiell (8-9, 2 KOs). All three judges scored the fight a perfect shutout for Andrade 60-54. Andrade used his jab as the key to victory over his opponent as he used that punch to open up other opportunities during the fight. Andrade had Spruiell in trouble at the end of the fifth round as well as other times during the fight but was unable to put him away in the end.

New York’s “Mean” Joe Greene (22-0, 14 KOs) kept his perfect record intact as he scored an eight round unanimous decision victory over Chris Gray (12-12, 1 KO). Scores of the bout were 79-73, 78-74, and 77-75 all in favor of Greene. (more…)

Green Machine

By Craig Watt

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green (28-3, 25KO’s) is in the final stages of his training camp in Sydney for his upcoming title defence on April 14th. He takes on Manny Siaca (22-6, 19KO’s) from Puerto Rico in a bout that is sold out at the Challenge Stadium in Green’s hometown of Perth, Western Australia. This is a “homecoming” fight for the popular Australian who is a three weight world champion having previously won the WBA light-heavyweight and interim WBC 168 pound titles. The 5,500 capacity crowd was sold out in just two hours in his hometown city when tickets went on sale last month.

The 37 year old “Green Machine” comes off his most impressive win to date when he stopped future Hall of Famer Roy Jones Junior in 122 seconds in December which shocked the boxing world. After possible fights against Bernard Hopkins and Antonio Tarver fell through he turned his attention to a lucrative potential rematch with two time WBA super-middleweight champion Anthony Mundine.
