Results from Oldenburg

Photo: Sebastian Heger

Otto Wallin (9-0, 7 KOs) improved to 9-0 with a dominant display against Ivica Perkovic (20-26, 15 KOs) tonight in Oldenburg, Germany. The Swedish heavyweight proved too much for his Croatian opponent, who retired following the fourth-round of a scheduled eight.

“Perkovic was a tricky opponent,” said Wallin. “He is an experienced guy and he was in survival mode. It was difficult to get him to the head so I had to work the body. I had some success and that’s what forced him to quit after the fourth-round. (more…)

Full Report: Hurd vs Sanchez

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Maryland middleweight Jarrett Hurd won an uninspiring majority decision over Texan Emmanuel Sanchez in the 6-round main at Harrah’s Casino and Racetrack in Chester, PA Friday night. The lackluster bout topped a showcase parade of Al Haymon fighters, and included a sprinkling of local boxers mixed with several out-of-towners. Although going in, there was little doubt about the outcome of all six fights scheduled, some of the favorites managed to make an impression with strong showings. However, Hurd, (14-0, 8 KOs), was not one them.

Hurd had his hands full with Sanchez, a southpaw who came to fight, but had more attitude than ability against the undefeated pet-pugilist. The pair mixed it up in round one, which teased the sparse crowd that they were about to see a good battle. The rest of the fight, however, did not deliver. (more…)

Fegatilli wins tune-up against Dochev

The fight with Bulgaria’s Kristin Dochev was nothing more than an appetizer for Ermano Fegatilli (30-5) as a fight for the European super featherweight title is on the table for April 2015. Fegatilli is just keeping active rather than developing rust. Even years separated from his first EBU title reign, he’s maintained a champion’s lifestyle. From start to finish, the better man was left unquestioned. Fegatilli and Dochev had some sluggish moments, but Ermano was more active, more refined, and contributed the best of work where it mattered. He took control through the second half of the fight, and outboxed his opponent behind the jab. The judges tallied 80-72, 80-72, and a marginally closer 78-74 for Fegatilli. The local crowd in Antwerp, Belgium offered a warm reception to the proud Italian-born, Belgian-raised, and now Netherlands-based Fegatilli.

He may not be offered such commodity when he faces Romain Jacob, the unbeaten, fine-tuned Frenchman next year. The date is still being locked-in, but it will likely head further to mid-year, April. With that, Fegatilli will likely appear at a local boxing gala again, on the 30th of January. Then, he will be fully prepared to capitalize on the opportunity presented against Jacob.

Bundrage vs. Mundine in 2015?

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Australian promoter Brian Amatruda told Fightnews.com that he has made a substantial offer to the management of IBF light middleweight champion Cornelius Bundrage (34-5, 19 KOs) to defend the title against former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine (47-6, 27 KOs) in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia early in 2015. “I have made Bundrage a good offer and think it will be a great fight,” stated Amatruda.

The 39-year-old Mundine is coming off an upset win over WBC #2 Sergey Rabchenko in a recent Melbourne promotion that attracted 12,000 fight fans. Earlier in the year, Mundine lost to former IBF welterweight champion Joshua Clottey and in 2013, “The Man” became the only boxer to stop Shane Mosley when they clashed in 2013.

The 41-year-old Bundrage regained the title for the second time by outscoring reigning champ Carlos Molina over twelve rounds in October.

“The Working Class Man” Vinnie Caruana successfully defended his WA State Light Heavyweight title with a third round stoppage over late sub Moses Ioelu in the Main Event of Dragon Fire Promotions Thunderdome IX tonight at the venue that is considered as one of the best in the world to view Boxing, Metro City in Perth Australia.

Caruana looked as if he wanted to stop Ioelu early going after his opponent and landing some good shots, but also looked rash at times as he was flirting with danger and was caught on the counter punch which frustrated trainers Angelo Hyder and “Sugar” Caine Melbourne. (more…)

Final Presser for Lemieux vs Rosado

By Jerry Glick
Photos: Rich Kane – Hoganphotos/Golden Boy Promotions

Golden Boy and Gary Shaw Productions held the final press conference on Thursday at the show’s venue, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, on Thursday. The main event pits hard hitting David Lemieux (32-2, 30 KOs) against rugged “King” Gabriel Rosado, (21-8, 13 KOs), in what looks like an action packed, fan favorite fight for Lemieux’s NABF Middleweight belt.

The well stocked show which includes Hugo “The Boss” Centeno Jr. (21-0,11 KOs) facing James “The King” De La Rosa (23-2, 13 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight matchup, and Thomas “El Frances” Dulorme (21-1, 14 KOs) squaring off with “Hammerin” Hank Lundy (25-3-1, 12 KOs) in a 10-round bout for the vacant NABF and NABA Junior Welterweight Titles. Also on the show but not televised is rising star Zachary Ochoa (8-0, 4 KOs) who puts his unbeaten record on the line in a six-round super lightweight bout against Puerto Rico’s Jose Miguel Castro (4-1, 2 KOs), plus more.

The three top fights will be telecast on HBO After Dark on Saturday, the sixth. No matter who wins in the main event, the fans are sure to win because Lemieux has the kick of a horse in his fists, and Rosado has a granite chin.

Lemieux appeared calm and confident, while Rosado, was intense, confident, but intense at the final press conference. Rosado’s veteran trainer, Jesse Reed said, “training went exceptionally well. Gabe is very coachable. He’s at a stage in his career where he’s fought all the tough guys and now he’s stepping up and showing his experience.” (more…)

Kennedy Cunningham Heart Transplant Successful

At Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, heavyweight contender and former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham and his wife Livvy were overjoyed this morning to receive the news that their 9 year old daughter Kennedy’s heart transplant surgery was a success. The fearless Kennedy went into surgery around 3:00am. Kennedy’s pre-surgery comment was, “When the clock says it’s about to be fight time, you need to pack up and go. It’s about to be fight time right now.” Kennedy has emerged as the champion in this fight! At 7:30am, the surgeon, Dr. Victor Morell reported that the heart was placed and beating. About an hour and a half later Dr Morell confirmed the surgery went well and the risk factors they were concerned with ended up not being issues at all. The Cunningham’s feel incredibly blessed.

Steve and Livvy issued this statement: “We are so happy to share that early this morning our daughter Kennedy received the gift of life. She received her new heart and is doing very well. This day is so very special to us and the promise of a better and longer life for our daughter trumps any victory boxing could ever give us. This is the ultimate championship right here. We would like to thank everyone for their continued prayers and support. And most importantly we send our sincere condolences to the donor family that through their extraordinary selflessness made this day possible for our daughter. We are forever grateful!”

Ward: I will stop Hughes late

Photos: Lawrence Lustig

Martin J. Ward believes he’ll have too much for Maxi Hughes to handle when the pair meet in a British Super Featherweight title eliminator tomorrow night at York Hall, Bethnal Green, live on Sky Sports.

Unbeaten Ward faces the Rossington man at the east London boxing mecca and while he rates his 24 year old opponent, he expects to overpower ‘Maximus’ in the later rounds as he faces his first southpaw in the paid ranks.

“He is an all-round pretty sound pro but he doesn’t have what I have got and I believe I have more than enough in the tank to beat him,” said Ward, who scaled 9st 3 ½lbs today, as did Hughes. (more…)

Laid back press conference for Pascal-Bolonti

Jean Pascal did not get into a war of words with his opponent at Thursday’s press conference in Montreal, two days ahead of his bout against Roberto Bolonti. The 32-year-old Laval resident chose instead to praise the 35-year-old boxer from Argentina, whom he will fight Saturday at the Bell Centre, during a gala presented by InterBox that will feature eight bouts – including one to be shown on a giant screen.

Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KO) said that Bolonti (35-3-0, 24 KO) will represent a greater challenge than Donovan George, the opponent he was initially set to face. Bolonti was available because he was supposed to fight Lucian Bute, who had to bow out because of a back injury.”Bolonti has been training for three months, he’s well prepared, contrary to Donovan George, who suffered a slight hand injury in his last fight, and might not have been able to do 10 rounds,” said Pascal, who added that Bolonti’s 35 wins, along with his 12-round performance against WBA world champion Juergen Braehmer in a loss by unanimous decision, on June 7, are proof that the veteran boxer from Argentina “has stamina” and “is coming here to go the distance.”

Pascal has a reputation for trashtalking, but he chose a laidback approach for Thursday’s press conference held at the Bell Centre La Cage aux Sports restaurant. “Everything in its time,” said Pascal when asked about it in a media scrum. “People think I’m unpredictable, but my strategies all well-planned with my sports psychologist. There hasn’t been any battle of wills for this fight, so there’s no point in trying to intimidate my opponent. We have another plan for him.” (more…)
