Buendia & Rodriguez Draw

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

Paulie Ayala Productions, led by former world champion Paulie Ayala, took a major step last night in bringing back boxing to Fort Worth in a big way. Moving into the spacious 10,000 plus seat arena at the Fort Worth Convention Center Arena, Paulie Ayala and team hopes this will be the start of something big by bringing in top bands to perform and better known fighters to bring in a diverse audience and full night of entertainment starting with last nights first of the series – Gloves & Guitars.

The first Gloves & Guitars kicked off with a local flavor of boxing and music headlined by Fort Worth’s own Miguel Buendia (7-1-1, 4KO) against the always tough Angel Rodriguez (5-7-3, 4KOs) in a lightweight tussle followed by a live performance by the nationally recognized, Tejas Brothers, also from Fort Worth. Buendia also took a major step on this night fighting as the main event for the first time in an eight rounder against Rodriguez. Rodriguez however did not make the trip four hours up highway 45 from Houston to be anyone’s opponent. In what was definitely the fight of the night, Buendia barely escaped with a majority draw with the scores 78-74 for Rodriguez and 76-76 on the other two judge’s scorecards, much to the dismay of those in attendance.

Smith rounds up the Renegade

By Kurt Wolfheimer

Saturday night at the First District Plaza, Percy Custis of Shuler’s Gym Promotions had to work hard to put together a night of boxing and entertainment for the more than 400+ in attendance. Several fights fell out, forcing Percy to scramble to complete the card at the last minute. The originally proposed main event featuring veteran heavyweights Gerald Nobles and Marlon Hayes had to be scratched, forcing Percy to move 53-fight veteran super middleweight Dhafir “No Fear” Smith against young upstart Quinton “The Renegade” Rankin, who entered the ring with a record of 4-1, 3 KOs. Though the fight looked good on paper, it was a sloppy affair with Dhafir Smith 25-22-7, 4 KOs taking a hard earned six round unanimous decision victory over the slick counter-punching southpaw.

UFC on FOX 2: Report

By Tim Hobscheid, Fightnews

In the main event, Rashad Evans earned a decisive victory over Phil Davis. Davis was aggressive throughout the fight, pushing forward and throwing a lot of punches, but Evans was true to his name. “Suga” was smooth on his feet and always a step ahead of the young Penn State wrestler. Throughout the build-up to this fight, Davis cited his wrestling pedigree and vowed that he would have the upper hand when the fight hit the ground.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. Evans used a great sprawl to stay away from Davis’ shots and was able to use an improved transitional jiu-jitsu game to secure positioning. On three occasions, Evans was able to position Davis in a crucifix and work strikes to his head, but the finish proved elusive to Evans. That seemed to be the theme of the evening for Rashad Evans. He was always in control, but was never aggressive enough to pull out a stoppage. (more…)

Welliver defeats Mensah

By David Finger

In a tougher than expected brawl, WBC and WBO ranked heavyweight contender Chauncy Welliver continued his climb up the world rankings in title defense Saturday for the New Zealand National Boxing Federation (NZNBF) heavyweight title, the WBC Asian Boxing Council heavyweight title and the WBO Asia Pacific heavyweight title in Auckland, New Zealand. Welliver won the fight with a dominant 10th round TKO over Ghana’s Moyoyo Mensah, but the African proved more than willing to brawl with the bigger man in the early rounds. Although Welliver admitted that the fight was “difficult” in the first half for the fight, his size and power began to wear the smaller man down, prompting Mensah to surrender in the tenth round. The fight, which goes down as a tenth round TKO for Welliver, puts him closer to a world title fight in 2012, and exciting development not only for American fight fans in the Pacific Northwest, but also boxing fans in New Zealand, where the popular American has made his second home.
