Abraham-Smith II set for February 2015

By James Slater

WBO super-middleweight ruler “King” Arthur Abraham was pushed to the wire by Liverpool’s Paul Smith back in September, with Abraham retaining his title via a decision that was universally looked at as far too wide. The 12-round unanimous decision proved so controversial, the WBO launched an investigation – the 119-109 tally handed in by Spanish judge Fernando Laguna being of particular interest to the governing body. In the end, though, the decision stood – as it was felt the right man won the fight even if it was closer than the three judges had it. Smith’s appeal to be made the WBO mandatory was unsuccessful, but Abraham has decided to give Smith a return chance all the same. The fight will take place at The O2 Arena in Berlin and it is possible British heavyweight David Price – who had to pull out of his scheduled December 6th bout with a bicep injury – will also see action on the card.

32-year-old Smith, 35-4(20) boxed better than ever before in September and it will be interesting to see if he can go one better and actually get the win this time. 34-year-old Abraham, 41-4(28) will no doubt enter the rematch as a big favourite to win but it’s likely he will again be given a tough night’s work by the determined warrior from Liverpool.

Carl Froch slowly leaning towards retirement

By James Slater

Super-middleweight star Carl Froch appears to be favoring the idea of retiring more and more. “The Cobra,” out of action since his KO win over fellow Brit and archrival George Groves, says it is “60/40 that I will retire.” Speaking to The Telegraph, the 37-year-old says he has one box left to tick – that of fighting in Las Vegas – and that if this does not happen, he will likely call it quits on his fine career.

“It’s 60/40 against that I’ll fight again,” Froch told the Telegraph. “I want the fight in Vegas. It’s not that it has to be against Chavez [Junior]. My heroes all fought there and it’s the box I’ve never ticked. The Vegas dream is there, but if it doesn’t happen, I’ll probably retire. By May I’ll have been out a year – and the longer it goes, the less likely I’ll ever fight again.” (more…)

Paul Williams optimistic about walking again

Three time former world champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams (41-2, 27 KOs) is the newest member of “Team Fight to Walk.” Williams became paralyzed from the waist down following a motorcycle accident in May 2012. Recently, Williams connected with Team Fight to Walk co-founder Boyd Melson in New York City, where he helped Williams find speaking engagements. During their time together, Melson took Williams to Rutgers University to meet Dr. Wise Young. Young showed Williams patients treated during clinical trials in China. Williams saw the patients walking following a surgical procedure that enabled their nervous systems to regenerate. Young is planning to conduct the same trials next year in the United States. Amazed by what he saw, Williams immediately joined Team Fight to Walk.

“Being a member of Team Fight to Walk is an incredible feeling,” said Williams. “Regardless of how I felt, people were telling me that I was never going to walk again but after meeting Boyd and Dr. Wise Young, you can’t tell me anything! I saw people with spinal cord injuries walking again and their cords regrowing. It’s amazing how God works because he brought all of us together and I’m confident as ever that I’ll walk again.” (more…)

In what was arguably his most impressive win, WBA #11, WBO #14 heavyweight Joseph Parker performed at his very best on Saturday in Hamilton, New Zealand when he stopped WBO #15 Irenu Beato Costa Jr in four rounds. Parker displayed precise and powerful head and body shots to KO the Brazilian compliments of a right hand bomb to the jaw which met with the satisfaction of his trainer Kevin Barry.

“This was the final exam Kevin was talking about and I’m glad I passed it,” Parker said. “We’ve been working on the body throughout the whole year. Kevin said to set it up and it came. I’m grateful for this victory.”

Plans for Parker to fight five times again next year can now progress as intended. Parker holds inside distance wins over Frans Botha and Brian Minto. He also clearly outpointed Sherman Williams in 2014.

Lemieux, Rosado postfight quotes

Middleweights David Lemieux (33-2, 31 KOs) and “King” Gabriel Rosado (21-9, 13 KOs) spoke about their all-action clash Saturday night in Brooklyn, won via tenth round TKO by Lemieux.

David Lemieux: “I responded to the test well, my preparation has been a lot different. I know he wanted to take me into deep waters but we have been practicing on explosiveness from the first part of the fight all the way to the end. I wanted to show everyone what I could do. He was better than I thought but I thought we had a great fight and I hope everyone enjoyed it. I feel like I’m as good as anybody in the division and I’m willing to fight anybody. I want to win a world title.”

Gabriel Rosado: “He’s a good fighter. In the second round he punched me in my eye and after it puffed up I couldn’t see anything. I kept seeing three of him. It’s just my luck. I know I should have started the fight better, if I had taken control earlier I know it would have been different. But I know he’s a good fighter and I take nothing away from him.”

More on Pascal-Bolonti no contest

By Dave Spencer at ringside

It was a boxing card that was almost doomed to failure. Half the names from the original marquee were gone by fight night, and when things finally ended Saturday night in Montreal, only one man remained standing, and he didn’t have a win to show for his efforts. Former world champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1 17KO) was forced to settle for a ‘No Contest’ as his opponent Roberrto Bolonti (35-3 24KO) lay motionless on the canvas from what seemed like an innocuous punch before finally exiting the ring with an oxygen mask on a stretcher with a chorus of boos from frustrated fans raining down. Official time was 2:29 of the second round.

After scoring a knockdown to start the second frame on a jab, Pascal was involved in an innocent looking clench where he walked the Argentine fighter towards the ropes. After taking a couple of glancing blows himself, Pascal delivered a short right that put Bolonti down and out past any hope resuming action.

“I didn’t think I hit him that hard,” said Pascal afterwards of the incident. (more…)

Lemieux stops Rosado in tenth

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside

In front of 6,532 fans at the Barclays Center in New York, David Lemieux and Gabriel Rosado fought the fight of their lives and left nothing behind in their NABF middleweight title fight. Both men started strong and traded leather much to the delight of fight fans in attendance. After Rosado schooled Lemieux in the 2nd round he ended up tasting the canvas in the 3rd round having taken a series of hooks to the head from Lemieux.

The 4th round provided some of the best action to have graced the Barclays Center with both fighters showing no fear in going forward and trading vicious blows resulting in the crowd erupting.

As the fight continued into the late rounds, Rosado’s left eye began to swell causing Rosado to lose his vision and not see Lemieux’s incoming punches. Having sustained enough damage to the eye, all four corners (each doctor along with the NY state commission) brought an end to the fight at 1:45 in round 10. Lemieux moves to 33-2, 31 KOs while Rosado falls to 21-9, 13 KOs. photos

Pascal dropped Bolonti in round two, then later in the round he hit Bolonti on the break apparently knocking out Bolonti. The punch didn’t look hard but Bolonti was taken out on a stretcher. After some confusion it was announced that the fight was a no-contest.

A Pascal win would have set up a March 14 showdown between Pascal and WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev, however that bout is still expected to happen.

Centeno KOs De La Rosa; Dulorme edges Lundy

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside
Photos: Emily Harney

In the main undercard bout, Hugo Centeno Jr. (22-0, 12 KOs) scored a devastating knockout over James De La Rosa (23-3, 13 KOs). Centeno Jr knocked down De La Rosa in round one with a straight jab but failed to capitalize on a stunned De La Rosa. As the action became stagnant and while the boos were making the rounds in the crowd, Centeno Jr. pulled out a punch reminiscent of Martinez vs. Williams to floor De La Rosa and end the fight. The official time of the stoppage was 2:26 in round 5. A point to note, this is also one of the first times this year that a Robert Garcia trained fighter has made weight.

In a thrilling crossroad fight, Thomas Dulorme (22-1, 14 KOs) and Hank Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KOs) battled for 10 rounds for the vacant NABF and NABA junior welterweight title. Dulorme started strong and landed a thunderous right hook to floor Lundy towards the end of the first round. Dulorme continued to keep up the pace, landing crisp jabs and crosses in an attempt to rattle Lundy again. Lundy found his best round of the night in the 6th, catching Dulorme with some venomous counter punches that made the Barclays Center come alive. As the rounds continued, Dulorme began to build a tolerance for Lundy’s punches, taking them with ease and giving back just enough in jabs to steal the later rounds. A brawl broke out in the 10th round with Lundy seeking the knockout while Dulorme was content to see out the round. The fight was eventually settled by the judges, who reached a split decision with the scores reading 96-93 Lundy and 96-93, 97-92 to Dulorme.

Off-TV Boxing Results from Brooklyn

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside

Eddie Gomez (17-1, 10 KOs) bounced back from his first defeat earlier this year by knocking down James Winchester (16-11, 6 KOs) in the first round en route to an exciting points win at the Barclays Center. Gomez, fighting in front of his hometown fans, had the fire in his fists and beat Winchester to the punch from the opening bell, knocking Winchester with a vicious right hook to the body. Winchester recovered well and began goading Gomez to keep it up, insinuating that he could deal with whatever Gomez was bringing to the table. As the rounds continued, Gomez used his footwork to remain busy, jabbing to control the distance before unloading a series of body combinations. Winchester was docked a point in round 7 for a repeated low blow. In a bizarre twist of events, round 9 saw a dance off in the ring, with Eddie Gomez returning Winchester’s dance shuffle with his own jiggle. At the end of the 10 round super welterweight bout, the judges awarded the fight to Gomez with scores of 100-88 all round.

Brooklyn native Zachary Ochoa (9-0, 4 KOs), delighted his hometown fans with a convincing decision over Jose Miguel Castro (4-2, 2 KOs. Ochoa knocked down Castro with a beautifully timed right hook to the head. Castro had a case of dejavu as Ochoa landed an overhand right to knock Castro down once more in round 2. Rather than slow down, Ochoa picked up the pace and continued to try and close the night with a KO but Castro was able to keep it together and see out the final rounds. After 6 rounds, all three judges scored the fight 60-52 to Ochoa.

In an entertaining welterweight bout, John Karl Sosa kept his perfect record intact against Jason Thompson with a convincing 8 round decision. Sosa, from Caguas PR, pressured Thompson early on and connected with a series of vicious combinations but continued to get tagged by Thompson’s counter punches. As the later rounds came on, Thompson slowed down while Sosa continued to move and jab with ease. At the end of 8 rounds, the judges at ringside all scored the fight to Sosa by way of 80-72, 79-73 and 79-73.

Light heavyweight D’mitrius Ballard (8-0, 7 KOs) made light work of Tylon Burris (4-3, 2 KOs) in their scheduled 6 round bout. Ballard pressed the action from the start and knocked down Burris in round one. Burris was on the floor again in round 2 but this was due to a low blow from Ballard. The end for Burris came in round 3 where he faced an onslaught of hooks from Ballard and went to the canvas but was deemed unable to continue by the referee. The official time of the stoppage was 2:57 in round 3.

In the opening bout of the night at the Barclays Center, lightweight Lamont Reach (5-0, 2KOs) went the full distance against Alexander Charneco (2-1, 2 KOs) to win on points. Roach went in with heavy hands and came close to a final round KO before the bell saved Charneco. The official scores were 40 34, 40-35 and 40-35 all in favor of Roach.
