By Kurt Wolfheimer

We are sad to report that USBA Super Bantamweight challenger Francisco Rodriguez has passed on Sunday night at Hahnemann University Hospital.

He was immediately rushed from the ring on a stretcher and transported by ambulance to Hahnemann University Hospital where emergency brain surgery was performed.

Mikkel Kessler said after his 11th-round, technical-decision loss to Andre Ward that some of the head-clashes were intentional and that Ward, the new WBA super-middleweight champion was a dirty fighter—a charge Ward vehemently denied. Ward consistently out-landed the Dane and avoided his power, though the fighters’ heads collided regularly. Kessler believes the collisions weren’t all accidental. (more…)

More on Sosa-Mayol

By Robert Coster

“I just followed the doctor’s orders who told me to let the fight go on,” says Puerto Rican referee Roberto Ramirez after the controversial end to the WBC light flyweight bout between champion Edgar Sosa and challenger Rondel Mayol yesterday in Tuxla Gutierrez, Mexico. A vicious head-butt at the beginning of the second round spelled the end for the long reigning champion who crumbled to the floor. The head-butt was ruled as intentional and referee Ramirez deducted a point from the Filipino challenger. Sosa got up on unsteady legs but ring physician, Dr. Ibarra, ruled that the fight could continue. The referee accepted the doctor’s advice and Mayol jumped on his defenseless prey. After a second knockdown, Ramirez stopped the fight, putting an end to Sosa’s 28 month reign. The Mexican champion had to be transported to the hospital where he was declared to have a fractured cheekbone that will keep him out of action for about 5-6 months. The Sosa camp has mentioned that it will appeal the outcome of the fight in order to have it declared a no-contest.

Jones-Green financial success

By Ray Wheatley–World of Boxing

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green has commented that his bout with Roy Jones Jr is the biggest fight in Australia’s boxing history. The bout has proven to be a great financial success with Danny looking certain to surpass the AUD $3,000,000 he earned from his bout with Anthony Mundine. It is rumored that Green could earn up to $4,000,000, and quite possibly more, due to a number of contributing factors, including: the fight being beamed into 15 countries, including the US, Canada, England, Malaysia and South Africa. A huge financial lure that the Mundine-Green fight failed to attract. Just 5000 tickets remain for the bout at Homebush, with an 18,000 sell-out guaranteed. Overwhelming demand for ringside seats has allowed ticket holders to auction seats on eBay for up to $1250. Demand for pay-per-view subscription at pubs and clubs is rivalled only by Green’s fight with Mundine in 2006. (more…)

Controversy over Mayol win

Sosa camp cries foul

By Robert Coster

“The only way Rodel Mayol could beat me was by intentionally fouling me. He should have been disqualified,” says disconsolate former champion Edgar Sosa who lost his WBC belt on Saturday in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico by a very controversial TKO in the second round to Filipino challenger Rodel Mayol. Sosa, who was making his 11th defense, is in the hospital with a fractured cheekbone, the result of a clear head-butt on the part Mayol. Although Sosa, now (37-6, 21 KOs), was bleeding and clearly dazed, ring doctor Ibarra allowed the fight to continue and the Filipino boxer took full advantage of the situation, scoring two subsequent knockdowns that forced Referee Robert Ramirez to stop the fight and declare Mayol (26-4-1, 20 KOs) the winner.

Mikkel Kessler has vowed to bounce back stronger than ever after his 11th round technical decision defeat against Andre Ward. The Viking Warrior was trailing on all three score-cards when the fight was stopped due to a cut caused by an unintentional head-butt. “I have lost the world title once and won it straight back so I know how to do it,” Kessler said. “With the support of my home fans in Denmark I will beat Carl Froch and become world champion again. That is why this tournament is great–I have the chance to make amends immediately.” Kessler admitted it was tough to fight Ward. “He was very fast and very good. He ruined my style,” he said. “It was not my day. Now I will go home, watch the tape and then bounce back stronger than ever.” (more…)

Sonsona loses belt, perfect record

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

It turned out to be quite the day for nineteen year-old Marvin Sonsona. In the morning we lost his WBO junior-bantamweight belt on the scales, coming in over two-and-a-half pounds over the 115 pound limit. Things didn’t go much better in the evening as the Philippine fighter escaped with a draw over a determined Alejandro Hernandez (22-7-2 11KO) by score of 115-113, 113-115, 114-114. The WBO title will remain vacant. It was clear that from the early going that these were two fighters operating on different planes, with the former champion waving and smiling to the crowd while a determined Hernandez was trying to make the most of his title opportunity. The talent level favoured the tall lanky Sonsona who was able to bank some early rounds over the Mexican who showed no quit on the evening.

Former super-bantamweight IBF champion Steve Molitor survived a fifth round knockdown and walked away with a 78-73, 79-73, 78-74 decision of Jose Saez of Argentina. Molitor was easily controlling the fight as he towered over his opponent but walked straight left counter that put the Canadian Kid down quickly. Molitor was delivering and landing at a much higher percentage than his Argentine opponent who absorbed the former champion’s shots well. Moliltor seemed highly irritated at the momentary lapse. Molitor controlled the action for the duration, but definitely not in the same confident, aggressive style he had done in the earlier going. (more…)

Erdei’s speed was evident early on as he landed many sharp combinations. Fragomeni, however, applied intense pressure and connected more and more as the bout progressed. It became a battle attrition as both fighters landed good shots. Fragomeni closed stronger, however in the end scores were 114-114, 115-113, 115-113 for Erdei, who becomes the first Hungarian to win a world title in two weight divisions.

In a clash for the vacant WBA super middleweight world championship, Dimitri Sartison (26-1, 17 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Stjepan Bozic (23-4, 14 KOs). The referee stopped the bout on the advice of the ring doctor because the left eye of Bozic was swollen shut.

Unbeaten WBC & WBO #1 rated middleweight Gennady Golovkin (18-0, 15 KOs) dropped previously unbeaten Mikhail Makarov (10-1, 5 KOs) three times in round two to get a stoppage win at 1:24. Golovkin was originally slated to face Ishe Smith, but Smith had to cancel with a foot injury. More results…

Undefeated Caleb Truax (14-0) pounded out a hard fought unanimous decision over Kerry Hope (12-2) on Friday night at the Saint Paul Armory in Minnesota. Truax and Hope engaged early and often with most of the action taking place in the center of the ring. Truax was on top of his game in the early to mid rounds as he landed sharp and accurate counter punches to the head and body that shook Hope on more than one occasion. Undeterred, Hope pressed forward like a machine although not having quite the same success. Hope’s relentless pressure began to pay off however, by round seven as Truax began to backpedal and drop his punch output. Hope continued to bring the fight to Truax going into an all action round ten which saw both fighters brawl until the final bell. Judges saw it unanimously in favor of Truax by scores of 97-93 on all cards. Truax takes home the WBF International super middleweight title with the victory.

Green: I will KO Jones

By Ray Wheatley–World of Boxing

IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green has vowed to knockout all time great Roy Jones when they clash on December 2nd at the Acer Arena in Sydney, NSW, Australia. Green said. “I will knock the bloke out.” Green also denied he and Jones were friends. “How do you become friends with a bloke when you’ve only met him three times. We’re not mates at all. I don’t know too many buddies that want to knock each other out as much as we do. He’s one of the greatest of all time and conducts himself as a complete professional, so in that way we’re very similar, but come December 2nd, I’m going to unleash the fury and knock him out.” Danny Green challenged Anthony Mundine in a bout that attracted a live gate of over 30,000 fight fans and record pay-per-view sales. “Mundine was a domestic scrap. This is going to be the biggest fight in the world this year,” Green said. Danny Green captured the WBA light heavyweight title in 2007 when he scored a shutout twelve round decision over Stipe Drews.
