Thompson defeats Willis

By Shamus Young at ringside
Photos: Todd Dearinger

At the Emerald Queen Casino, in Tacoma, WA, heavyweight Vincent Thompson scored a unanimous decision in a foul-shortened match over Jonte Willis. Thompson recognized his reach advantage and, for the first six rounds, used an unexpected southpaw jab to control the distance and completely stymie the frustrated but game Willis. In the seventh, Thompson listened to the boo birds in the audience and started to pick spots to mix it up, which let Willis back into the fight. In the eighth round out of a scheduled ten, Thompson and Willis were scrapping when Thompson landed a hard rabbit punch. Willis wobbled around the ring holding his head and doctors were called in to stop the bout. After much confusion, referee Paul Fields stopped the bout, took two points from Thompson for the foul, and sent it to the cards. Thompson had won all rounds, including the partially completed round, on all judges’ cards, for a score of 78-72. Fightnews had it 77-73. With the win, Thompson sits at 10-0. Willis is now 8-2-1. Given that both are local boys with huge cheering sections, the competitive nature of the late rounds, and the odd ending, a rematch is necessary and certain. (more…)

Boschiero camp to protest

“Devis Boschiero is the champion without belt,” says his manager Christian Cherchi after the split decision loss that Boschiero suffered against Takahiro Aoh for the WBC super featherweight title today in Japan. “Everybody can see the fight and judge for themselves. Boschiero won at least by 3 points. OPI 2000, the promoter of Boschiero, will fill a protest to the WBC for an immediate rematch. Japanese people are proud people and I think Takahiro Aoh and the promoter Mr. Honda will give Boschiero a deserved rematch.”

Results From Kalamazoo

Story and photos by Bob Ryder

Promoter Greg Ahrens presented a four bout card of professional boxing at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo on Saturday night uniquely sandwiched between fifteen amateur MMA fights. The main event matched two of Michigan’s long time designated opponents as Ahrens provided them the opportunity to break out from the losers column, at least for one night. Chris Grays (10-24, 2 KO’s) from Traverse City and Guy Packer (4-23, 1 KO) of Battle Creek engaged in a spirited middleweight contest over 10 rounds. The pattern was established early in this one as it was pretty much throw one or two punches and clinch. Grays started to pull away mid bout as his punching was more effective. Not always pleasing to the eye but both gave it their best to the final bell. Grays won the unanimous decision by scores of 98-92 x 2 and 96-94. There were no knockdowns. (more…)

Japanese ex-Olympian Toshiyuki Igarashi (15-1-1, 10 KOs), 112, acquired the right to have a mandatory shot at the WBC flyweight throne, as he made best use of his footwork and hand speed in winning a close but unanimous verdict over top contender Wilbert Uicab (33-6-1, 18 KOs), 112, a game Mexican, in a WBC final eliminator of twelve hard-fought rounds on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan.

The official scores were as follows: Rocky Burke and Duane Ford (both US) 116-112 and 114-113 respectively, and Ian John Lewis (UK) 116-111, all for the taller southpaw Igarashi. The referee was Laurence Cole (US). (more…)

Unbeaten Japanese southpaw Shinsuke Yamanaka (15-0-2, 11 KOs), 118, acquired the WBC bantamweight belt as he finally stopped Mexican Christian Esquivel (24-3, 18 KOs), 118, at 1:28 of the eleventh round on Sunday in Tokyo, Japan.

It was a very furious give-and-take affair, though Yamanaka continually had the upper hand on the game Mexican. The 29-year-old Japanese southpaw utilized his trademark left hand to take the initiative from the start, winning points steadily. In the fourth, Esquivel, 26, turned so aggressive that he connected with solid lefts and rights in the fourth. (more…)

Bute-Johnson recap

By Dave Spencer/Fightnews Canada

Friends shouldn’t let friends fight friends. After sparring close to 100 rounds in the past, Glen Johnson and IBF super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute gave a loud deafening crowd 12 more in a fight that sometimes simmered, but never boiled over. Bute was able to easily control the action, out-jabbing the “Road Warrior” who often looked more road-weary by scores of 120-108, 120-108, 119-109. (more…)

At the end of round one of the UFC 138 main event at the LG Arena Saturday night, Chris Leben had to be stopped by the referee from hammer fisting Mark Munoz’s head. Moments prior he had walked through some massive bombs, taken square on his chin, to deliver a crashing left hand of his own to Munoz. That prompted Munoz to look for a takedown but ended up with him crouched against the fence taking shots . . . Click here for more

Lucian Bute passed the toughest test of his thriving career with a dominant unanimous decision win over Glen “The Road Warrior” Johnson to defend his International Boxing Federation (IBF) super middleweight title for the ninth time. The championship bout was scored 120-108 twice and 119-109. In the co-feature, rising Canadian prospect Pier-Olivier Côté demolished Jorge Teron via knockout only 33 seconds into round two of the junior welterweight bout on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING from Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Canada on SHOWTIME®.

The Romanian-born Bute (30-0, 24 KOs) proved too much for the oft-dubbed “ageless” Johnson who finally showed his age. Despite Johnson’s tendency to make fight’s exciting by coming forward and applying pressure, the fighters kept their distance for the first several rounds. By the middle of the bout, it was Bute who closed the gap and attempted to engage his former sparring partner. The 31-year-old Bute, of Montreal, began to land power shots with both hands, taking chances by staying in close in an attempt to close the show via knockout – to no avail – for the 15,306 fans in attendance.

Krakow, Poland’s own WBC International heavyweight title holder, the undefeated Mariusz Wach (26-0, 14 KOs) successfully defended his title and kept his unbeaten record alive and well as he stopped late substitute, Orlando, FL’s Jason Gavern in six rounds on Saturday night at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT. Gavern (21-9-4, 10 KOs), who took the bout on three days notice, was knocked down once in the first and twice in the second round. Wach landed several jabs in round six, which allowed him to then connect with an overhand right, that caused referee Arthur Mercante Jr. to stop the fight at 1:03. The “November Reign” fight card was promoted by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports in association with Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing, and Global Boxing. (more…)

Heavyweight Chris Arreola (34-2, 29 KOs) destroyed Raphael Butler (35-12, 28 KOs) in a three round demolition on Saturday night at the Domo De La Feria in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico. Arreola dropped Butler twice in round one and again in round two. The bout was waved off after Butler was down again in the third.

“It was a pleasure to be fighting here in Mexico,” said Arreola. “I had a great ovation from the fans here. I cant wait to come back in the future. Butler is very crafty. He fought a good fight and was able to tie me up really well. Hopefully I’ll get another go with one of these Klitschkos, I’ll be ready for either one of those brothers. I’ve been working my ass off, I’m ready to go after those titles.”

Jones punishes Marrone

WBA cruiserweight champion Guillermo Jones (38-3-2, 29 KOs) of Panama punished former heavyweight Mike Marrone (20-4, 15 KOs) from pillar to post across six rounds before Marrone’s corner mercifully stopped the abuse at 1:56 of the round. Jones came out with crisp, sharp punches from every angle, causing Marrone’s reddening face to snap back beginning with jabs and right crosses in round one. Jones worked in uppercuts to the mix in the second round, thudding Marrone with body and head shots as Marrone laid on the ropes in a defensive shell. Displaying no quit and more grit than wit, Marrone managed to return fire with left hooks himself. However, the punches had little effect as Jones continued to walk him down and score combinations from varying angles.

Jones landed a wicked right hand to close the fourth round and the game Marrone walked wearily to his stool. In the fifth round, blood began to stream down the side of Marrone’s nose after he ate a left uppercut-left hook-right cross combination. Jones smelled the opportunity and launched a left uppercut and chopping right hand that floored Marrone at the end of the round. Beating the count, Marrone once again made it to his stool.

Marrone answered the bell in the sixth but had no answers for Jones’ superior accuracy and stubbornly paid for the skill deficit. Marrone fell to the canvas following a landed straight right of his own that landed, carried forward by the force of the blow. Jones responded with a left jab-right cross that once again left Marrone on the floor as his corner thankfully stepped in to stop the beating. (more…)

In a clash of junior middleweight KO artists, James “Mandingo Warrior” Kirkland (30-1, 27 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over Alfredo “Perro” Angulo (20-2-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Cancun Center in Cancun, Mexico. In a wild first round, Angulo dropped Kirkland and launched a fearsome attack that Kirkland weathered and then came back to drop Angulo! Angulo never really recovered and Kirkland pummeled Angulo for the rest of the fight before the referee stepped in.

Middleweight Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (26-0, 20 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over Craig McEwan (19-2, 10 KOs). Quillin was in command the whole fight and had staggered McEwan in the sixth, but the bout was prematurely waved off even though McEwen seemed to have plenty of fight left in him. more photos

Bute defeats Johnson

IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (30-0, 24 KOs) scored a dominant twelve round unanimous decision over 42-year-old Glen “The Road Warrior” Johnson (51-16-2, 35 KOs) on Saturday night at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City. Johnson was never able to solve the style of the southpaw champion, although he did end Bute’s string of six straight KOs. Scores were 119-109, 120-108, 120-108. Bute will now attend the Super Six Final in December and hopes to face the winner. Meanwhile Johnson stated after the fight that he thought he won the fight.

Three-division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez and undefeated WBO jr. welterweight champion Timothy “The Desert Storm” Bradley Jr. put on a special boxing exhibition at Santa Anita Park where thousands of fans showed up to meet the champions. Marquez is preparing for his upcoming third mega-fight against superstar Manny Pacquiao next Saturday (Nov. 12) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Bradley will be making his Top Rank debut on the undercard.

Marquez: “We have the speed for this fight and I’m not having any trouble with my weight. This is the best training camp of my 18-year career. I have already left the last two fight behind me. He (Manny Pacquiao) knows and the fans know that I won both those fights. I will leave everything in the ring on November 12th.”

Bradley: “I am fighting on the biggest fight card of my career. Bigger than when I beat Devon Alexander (at the Silverdome in Pontiac, MI in January). To be honest, i wanted to fight (Marcos) Maidana for this fight, but he turned it down. Casamayor was there so he took the fight. It will be a great fight.” Giant photo gallery

Sebastien Demers made a good account for himself but fell to a decision to former world title challenger and Super Six contestant Allan Green (31-3 21KO). Demers (31-5 11KO) hadn’t made it out of the third round in his last two fights but gave Green everything he could handle over the course of ten rounds, losing a 100-90, 98-92, 97-93 decision. Green who had come in 3 pounds heavy had Demers rocked several times in the fight but any continued exchanges usually ended with one or both fighters hanging on. Demers had hoped to get Green to deep waters and take his chances and seemed things were going to plan in the seventh where he was able to connect with a couple of rights but couldn’t follow up and Green quickly maintained the upper hand. Demers had his moments over the course of ten, but Green was control most of the way. (more…)
