Bundrage (29-4, 17 KOs), of Detroit, Michigan is the top contender in the IBF junior middleweight rankings. He is rated number two, but the number one spot is vacant. The champion is Cory Spinks. “I am the mandatory to fight Cory Spinks. I fought three title eliminators already. What do I have to do to get the fight?” asked Bundrage. “Now that The Contender gave me my release, I am ready for the world of boxing.

Ringside report and gallery by Chris Cozzone & Ricardo Trujillo

It wasn’t the prettiest fight ever seen in El Paso. But it might be one of the more controversial ones held in recent years.

If you had told Hector “Machito” Camacho Jr. that going ten rounds with 108-fight Mexican veteran Ramon Luis “Yory Boy” Campas also meant going ten rounds with Texas, he might’ve talked promoter Zeferino Ramirez into a safer fight site . . . say, Afghanistan or across the border to the world’s murder capital, Juarez . . .

Fightwriter: Agbeko-Perez

By Graham Houston

After his impressive, upset win over Vic Darchinyan in July, Joseph Agbeko is back on Showtime on Saturday night to defend his IBF bantamweight title against mandatory contender Yonnhy Perez, and the fight should be a good one. I’m glad to see these talented and well-matched fighters getting the opportunity to top the bill on the first boxing event at the Treasure Island casino hotel, with Don King promoting. Agbeko, from Ghana in West Africa but now living in New York, was once one of boxing’s well-kept secrets. Now the secret’s out. The Ghanaian is a durable, crowd-pleasing boxer-fighter who seemed to handle Darchinyan much more easily than the scores suggested. (more…)

Middleweight Hector Camacho Jr. (50-3-1, 27 KOs) won a ten round split decision over former world champion Yory Boy Campas (92-15-1, 74 KOs) on Friday night at the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, Texas. The bout featured a lot of clinching as the speedy 31-year-old Camacho looked to hit and grab the slower 38-year-old Campas, who mostly seemed unable to pull the trigger. Camacho was deducted three points by referee Laurence Cole during the contest. A point for a low blow in round three, a point for a punch after the bell in round four and a point for holding in round ten. Campas was cut over the left eye from an unintentional headbutt in round five, but neither fighter was down or hurt. In the end, scores were 95-92, 96-91 Camacho, 95-92 Campas. After the bout, former world champion Fernando Vargas announced he was interested in a comeback fight against Camacho. Where Campas goes from here remains to be seen as he is now 1-5-1 in his last seven fights.

World bantamweight contender Tantong Kiattaweesuk (13-0) was impressive in scoring a four round stoppage of Wan Jun Hui (5-9-1) to retain IBF Pan Pacific bantamweight title at Tambon Dantabtako, Ratchaburi, Thailand on Thursday. Southpaw Kiattaweesuk attacked the tall Chinese boxer from first bell cutting off the ring continually to score with effective head and body punches. The importation scored with accurate long range punches on the back move but they did not have the power to gain Kiattaweesuk’s respect. In round four IBF#14 Kiattaweesuk dropped Hui three times at which point the referee Sanong Au-Im crowned the Thai boxer at 2.40 of the round. For more details and photos click here…

Smith edges Quigley

By Alexey Sukachev

In a grueling clinchfest, Paul Smith (28-1, 15 KOs) wrestled the British national super middleweight title with a split decision over previous titlist Scott Quigley (13-2, 6 KOs) at Echo Arena in Liverpool. Both fighters turned the contest into an ugly and uneventful stinker with a lot of grappling and wreslting. Quigley was a better man throughout the first half of the fight but the challenger proved to be stronger down the stretch. Neither fighter was ever rocked except for a badly tired champion during the last round. Smith was cut over his right eye in the tenth. At the end two judges saw it in favour of the local hero: 116-113 and 116-112, while the third one scored the contest for Scott Quigley: 114-116. This reporter saw it 115-114 – for Quigley, and SKY Sports’ analyst and former world champion Jim Watt made it a draw – 114-114.
—–
James DeGale (4-0, 3 KOs), 2008 Beijing middleweight gold medalist for the United Kingdom, stopped an unbeaten but hugely overmatched Ally Morrison (2-1-1) at the beginning of the third. DeGale used his fascinating speed and reflexes to frustrate his foe in the first couple of rounds. In round three, former amateur star went in for kill and got the job done with a series of powerful left hooks. Morrison wasn’t been down but looked dazed enough for the referee to stop the contest.
—–
Another British Olympian Frankie Gavin (4-0, 4 KOs) easily notched his fourth consecutive knockout win with the second-round stoppage of shorter and hugely overmatched Steve Saville (19-7, 8 KOs). 24-year old Gavin was all over the veteran from the beginning, punishing him mercilessly at the ropes. At 0:27 of the second round, Saville was downafter a quick counter combo by Gavin. He got himself upright but was too shaky to be allowed to fight on by the referee.

Campas, Camacho promise KOs

LIVE ON PPV TONIGHT @ 6p PT/9p ET

Former world champion Luis Ramon “Yory Boy” Campas (92-14-1, 74 KOs) has vowed to punish Hector “Machito” Camacho Jr., when they collide tonight at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas. At age 38, the veteran of 107 professional fights came in at a ripped and ready 152 pounds, his lowest weight in nearly a decade (he weighed 151.5 for a March 2000 fight against Oba Carr). The bout is billed as “Revenge of the Son,” referring Campas’ controversial draw with Hector Camacho Sr. in May, but Yory Boy is looking for a little payback in this fight himself. “I think he’ll fight the same way his father did in Florida. He’ll run away or he’ll come in and hug. But I’ll cut off the ring and, sooner or later, I’ll end it!” Camacho Jr. (49-3-1, 27 KOs), meanwhile, has also vowed to finish Campas early. “I’ll knock him out,” he proclaimed. “He’s done what he’s done, but now it’s Junior Time.” After weighing in 5.5 pounds over the 154lb super welterweight limit, Camacho gave up his WBC CABOFE belt, and will have a 7.5lb weight advantage over the heavy-handed Yory Boy when they meet in the ring later tonight. Bobby Czyz and Arnie Rosenthal will call the action from ringside on tonight’s pay-per-view telecast.

“LATIN INVASION 2″ will be held at UTEP’s Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas. The event will be on live on Pay-Per-View. Tickets for this event available at TicketMaster, or can be purchased at the Don Haskins Center box office, at 915-747-5234.

Before a sellout crowd of 1,340 at the overwhelmingly popular Battle In The Ballroom series at the Irvine Marriott, heavyweight Joe “The Future” Hanks shutout the menacing John Clark in co-main event action in a scheduled six round contest. Hanks opened the fight very strongly and in the first round had Clark in trouble a couple times and by all appearances it seemed like Hanks was headed for a knockout victory. However, to his credit, Clark fought back gamely and was able to not only survive the round but prove himself dangerous for the entirety of the scheduled six round bout.

Book Review: Dingaan Thobela

By Ron Jackson

Not many books have been written about South African boxers, but a new one has reached the shops just in time to make a fine Christmas gift. The story of Dingaan Thobela is similar to that of many of fighters who rose against the odds and went on to achieve success. None, however, has had such an inspirational influence on people who followed his career as that of Dingaan Thobela.
