Filipinos to dispute OPBF belt

By Joe Koizumi

Following the OPBF bantam champ Malcolm Tunacao’s latest relinquishment, the vacant regional belt will be disputed by highest available OPBF contenders #1 Jerope Zuiyama Mercado (23-1-3, 8 KOs) and #3 Rolly Matsushita Lunas (28-8-1, 16 KOs) in Kobe, Japan, on July 31. Funny enough, both are Japan-based Filipinos as ex-champ Malcolm. Lunas once fought Anselmo Moreno in a quest for the WBA bantam belt, losing a nearly shutout decision in Panama in 2008. Mercado went abroad and battled Vusi Malinga for the WBC international 118-pound belt to a split draw in South Africa in 2007. It will be a competitive bout with the good and strong campaigners.

Wauke stops Petchsuriya

By Joe Koizumi

Elongated southpaw Japanese, JBC#3/OPBF#14 super-light Yuji Wauke (14-3-1, 7 KOs), 140, engaged in a tune-up go prior to his national title crack and chalked up a quick TKO triumph over Thailander Petchsuriya Looksaikongdin (11-7, 4 KOs), 138.75, with a vicious body shot to the solar-plexus at 0:51 of the second round in a scheduled eight on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. Having failed to win the national 140-pound belt via unanimous decision loss to then-reigning Yosukezan Onodera two years ago, Wauke is gunning for a shot again at the currently vacant belt. The Japanese lefty threw busy combinations followed by a solid shot to the midsection, which collapsed the Thailander in agony with the referee Kumazaki promptly declaring a halt. (more…)

Shocker: Brewer TKOs Guerrero

40-year-old Grady “Bad Boy” Brewer (29-12, 17 KOs) scored a stunning fourth round TKO over previously unbeaten and world rated Fernando Guerrero (21-1, 16 KOs) in a junior middleweight bout on Friday night at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin Texas. Brewer dropped Guerrero with a series of right hands in round four and finished him moments later with an uppercut. Referee Jon Schorle waved it off at 2:16.

Brewer, best known for winning the popular TV reality series “The Contender” in 2006, claimed the NABF title. Guerrero entered the ring rated WBC #6 at super welterweight and WBO #5/WBA #6/IBF #15 at middleweight.

Welterweight Karim “Hard Hitta” Mayfield (14-0-1, 9 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over former IBF junior lightweight champion Steve “2 Pound” Forbes (35-10, 11 KOs). After a fairly lackluster fight, a barrage of punches by Mayfield prompted referee Gregorio Alvarez to step in at 1:03 of the final round. It was the first time Forbes has been stopped.

Unbeaten welterweight and former amateur standout Javontae Starks (5-0, 4 KOs) won a four round split decision over Antonio Gamez (6-4-1, 1 KO). Scores were 39-37 and 40-36 Starks, 39-37 Gamez.

Nino heads into the storm

Hang out long enough in El Paso and you’re going to find two different camps, both with valid arguments, among local boxing fans. One camp will swear that David “El Nino” Rodriguez is the next great American heavyweight. The other? Call ‘em haters, call ‘em critics, but these guys will fill your ear with talk of built-up records, tomato can opponents and being overrated.

Mayweather defies court order

This morning, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. refused to appear for a court-ordered deposition in the defamation lawsuit filed by Manny Pacquiao in a Las Vegas federal court. Mayweather tried to postpone the deposition last minute, but Federal Magistrate Judge Robert Johnston denied his request and ordered Mayweather to appear for deposition today. Mayweather did not appear. Pacquiao’s attorney, Daniel Petrocelli of O’Melveny & Myers, said, “Mr. Mayweather maliciously leveled false accusations about Mr. Pacquiao. We are anxious to examine him under oath about those statements. He is just dodging his deposition because he is afraid to testify, but he has no right to defy a Court Order.”
