Crowing Pains

Garcia, team have last word at post-fight following upset win over Khan

Story and photos by Chris Cozzone

“Why be nice to someone who wants to kill me?” was the question posed by unified WBC/WBA super lightweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia, a half-hour after crushing Amir “King” Khan Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

“But no hard feelings.”

A heavy underdog in the fight, Garcia was slated to lose his slice of the 140-pound championship to Khan. Instead, Garcia weathered an early shellacking, then struck back in round three, reintroducing the just-once-KO’d Khan to the canvas, before a round-of-the-year candidate of a fourth round, in which the Philly kid clinched the TKO win after two more knockdowns.

“I knew I was built for this,” Garcia basked, beamed and blazed behind a podium stacked high with a pile of championship leather and brass. (more…)

Rockhold defeats Kennedy on Strikeforce

Over a year after their first match-up was postponed due to injury, Luke Rockhold met Tim Kennedy in the Strikeforce hexagon, this time in Rockhold’s second title defense since winning the belt last September. The middleweight champion used takedown defense, submission attempts and, perhaps most effectively, his long range to stymie the game Kennedy and keep his belt over five hard-fought rounds . . . click here for more on UFC.com

Flyweight Mariana Juarez won a close 10 round split decision over Shindo Go before a sparse, but vocal crowd at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA. With the victory, Juarez defended her world title belt. There were close rounds in the fight, as the taller Go tried to use her reach to land her punches in the early rounds. Both fighters began to throw punches aggressively in the third round, trading hooks and crosses to the head. Go was quicker to the punch in the middle rounds, scoring with counter right hands to the head in the middle rounds. However, Juarez would attack the body with left hooks. Both fighters had their moments in the seventh round, as both connected with hard counter right hands to the head. After Go controlled the eighth round, Juarez came on in the ninth round, pressing the action and attempting to land to the body. Both fighters dug deep in the final round. Go pressed forward and scored with right hands to the head, but Juarez countered well to the body and head with the more-telling blows. One judge scored the bout 97-93 for Go, while the other two judges scored the bout 96-94 for Juarez. Fightnews.com scored the bout 95-95. (more…)

Oguni keeps OPBF 122lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten OPBF super-bantamweight champ Yukinori Oguni (9-0, 2 KOs), 121.5, impressively kept his regional belt as he dropped WBC#10 ex-national titlist Masaaki Serie (21-4, 9 KOs), 122, twice and pounded out a nearly lopsided decision (118-109, 118-110, 117-110) over twelve upset rounds on Saturday in Akoh, Japan. The upright stylist Oguni had dethroned Filipino defending champ Roli Gasca by an upset verdict last November and kept it once via technical decision over ex-titlist Hiromasa Ohashi this March. The lanky ex-amateur champ, making his second defense, exploded his trademark straight right in round two, flooring the awkward challenger who had lately renounced his national belt after six defenses. Though Serie was a prefight favorite, Oguni decked him again with a left hook in the fifth and apparently took the initiative thereafter despite the challenger’s desperate retaliation. Oguni will defend his throne against former champ Roli Gasca here in November. Promoter: Shinsei Promotions.

"Beating Glen Johnson was just one of my dreams"

Interview and photo by Przemek Garczarczyk

Why is Haye-Chisora a ten-rounder?

In his weekly column in The Sun tabloid, promoter Frank Warren explained why tonight’s grudge match between David Haye and Dereck Chisora will be a ten-round bout instead of the normal championship distance of twelve rounds. “When the original contract for the fight was signed, it was over ten rounds and sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation, but when the WBO and WBA titles were added to the bout it was hoped that the fight would be extended to the championship distance of twelve rounds. Haye was adamant that he would only fight over ten rounds and stuck with the original contract, with Chisora angry that a former world champion wouldn’t face him over the full distance.”

Haye and Chisora collide tonight

Former WBA heavyweight titlist David Haye is expected to have the last laugh over Dereck Chisora as the feud between the two British heavyweights finally reaches the boiling point. Sportsbooks have established Haye as a big odds-on favorite at 7:2 to win in London tonight in what is a true grudge fight in every sense of the word. Video of the brawl between the two sworn enemies which took place at the Klitschko-Chisora post fight press conference went viral and generated over 20 million YouTube views. 30,000+ fight fans are expected to turn out at an outdoor soccer stadium to see Haye and Chisora settle their differences.

The event is proceeding in direct defiance of the BBBofC, the EBU and the WBC. On the other hand, the match has been sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation and both the WBA and WBO have approved the bout for a vacant title. Like it or not, the open hostility, endless trash talk and heavy controversy has generated massive public interest and this will be the biggest heavyweight boxing match on British soil since Mike Tyson fought there twelve years ago.

“I feel like the end of the road is here. Father Time is undefeated,” 43-year-old former world champion Glen Johnson told ESPN’s Joe Tessitore after his loss to Andrzej Fonfara on Friday night. “I really see no reason to move forward. If I can’t win a fight like this, I won’t achieve my ultimate goal, which is being a world champion. So if I can’t be a world champion then what’s the use?”

Garcia tops Rios in Montebello, CA

Story and photos by Francisco Salazar at ringside

Irving Garcia won a one-sided four round unanimous decision over Roberto Rios before an almost sellout crowd at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, CA. Both fighters, who weighed in at 131 pounds the day before, pawed each other with jabs in the opening round, although Garcia attempted to follow up those jabs with right hands to the head. Garcia was able to drop Rios with a overhand right hand to the head in the second round. Rios was going to drop face-first, but held himself up with his gloves. Rios, who was cut over his left eye, tried to back away from an advancing Garcia, who attempted to time Rios with another right hand to the head. There was little action in the third round as Rios mostly moved around the ring. However, Rios was able to land a few punches to Garcia to start the fourth round. However, the rally was short-lived as Garcia landed a hard right hand that almost dropped Rios. Following the punch, Rios went into survival mode, doing as little as he could to engage with Garcia. The plan worked as he was able to make it to the final bell. All three judges, including Fightnews.com, scored the bout 40-35. Garcia, from Oxnard, CA, goes to 8-1, 5 KOs. Rios, from Bell Gardens by way of Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico, drops to 4-1, 3 KOs. (more…)
