Klitschko TKOs Arreola

Big Joe Miranda

Big Joe Miranda

By Francisco Salazar and Edgar Gonzalez at ringside

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (38-2, 37 KOs) successfully defended his world title against previously undefeated #1 ranked contender Cristobal Arreola (27-1, 24 KOs) via tenth round TKO on Saturday night at the STAPLES Arena in Los Angeles. Klitschko was able to score effectively at a distance against the aggressive Arreola, who made Vitali work very hard. The 38-year-old champion, however, was in tremendous condition and moved around the ring incredibly well for a 6’7, 250+ pound fighter at any age. Arreola could never find a tactic that worked, taking a beating in every round. The fight got more one-sided as the rounds progressed and referee Jon Schorle finally stopped the punishment at the end of round ten upon the request of Arreola’s corner.

Pendarvis-Herrera Oct 9

By Lee Bates

In an intriguing matchup Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis (9-1-2, 3 KOs) will square off against unbeaten Maurico Herrera (12-0, 6 KOs) on October 9th. The bout which is scheduled for eight rounds will take place at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California at a contracted weight of 142 pounds. Thompson Boxing will promote. The bout is unusual in that prospects building their careers don’t often face each other. Pendarvis feels he’s up for the challenge. “I definitely respect Herrera and know I will be in a tough fight with a very strong fighter,” he said. “Having sparred with Oscar De La Hoya, Edwin Valero and Shane Mosley, I’ve been in with strong fighters and held my own. People underestimate my power and that’s OK. I don’t believe Herrera can outbox me . We will settle who the better fighter is come Oct 9th.”

World heavyweight contender Shane Cameron has had excellent sparring sessions from former world IBF cruiserweight champion Kelvin Davis and Chauncey Welliver both of the USA as he enters the final training days prior to his showdown against David Tua on October 3 at Hamilton, New Zealand. Tua is the favorite with the bookmakers in New Zealand, despite being out of the ring since 2007. Ken Reinsfield who manages Cameron is confident his charge will be the victor next week. Reinsfield proclaimed, “Shane has been active against very good American heavyweights scoring impressive wins where Tua has been inactive since 2007.” Tua’s promoter, Cedric Kushner, who is in New Zealand for the big fight, is equally confident the Tuaman will have his hand raised on fight night. “Who has Cameron beat?” Kushner asked.

Martinez-Clottey Update

By Lee Bates

Looks like a proposed December 5th fight between WBC junior middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (41-1-2, 24 KOs) and former IBF welterweight champion Joshua Clottey (35-3, 20 KOs) is not as close as had been rumored. According to Martinez’ representative Sampson Lewkowicz and promoter Lou DiBella, that bout was offered but immediately turned down by the Clottey camp. The fight had been reported on Friday night’s TyC Sports boxing telecast. The main event on the Atlantic City card will feature WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly “The Ghost” Pavlik 35-1, 31 KOs) defending against two-division world champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams (37-1, 27 KOs).

Branco plans on appeal

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Stopped at 2:19 of the tenth round, Silvio Branco says he plans on appealing to the WBC, complaining that he got had been hit in the back of the head numerous times in his world championship fight with Montreal’s Jean Pascal Friday night. “He hit me four times, here,” said the mandatory challenger after the fight. “We plan on going to the Federation; it all started going downhill once he started hitting me there.” Branco certainly has a good case for the first knockdown where the Italian fighter twisted away from the action and got caught as he moved away. Referee Gerry Bolen immediately waved it off as a knockdown and then bell rang as the former champion was on his knees trying to regain his equilibrium. In a bizarre occurrence, once he righted himself from the canvas, referee Bolen greeted him to an eight count and the bell rang again. Other occurrences were not as clear. (more…)

Dominican Super Lightweight contender Victor “El Marmelade” Cayo was back in his adopted homeland of St. Thomas, USVI this week giving back to the community. Cayo will attend “Boxing In Paradise IV” on Saturday at the University of Virgin Islands Sports Center, home of Cayo’s fights in January and May of this year, and where he enjoys a large following, in part due to the island’s large Dominican population. Friday morning however, Cayo and Costa Rica’s Hanna Gabriel, who will co-headline tomorrow’s card, visited Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School in St. Thomas to speak at an assembly of faculty and students alike. The pep talk was aimed at especially the troubled students, focusing their attention toward staying out of trouble. Both Cayo and Gabriel cautioned students who are inclined to act with their fists, to do so in the ring and not the streets or school halls. Several of the students are already involved in the USVI amateur program.

Jones-Hopkins II in early 2010!

By Flattop

“It’s been sixteen long years and they are fighting again,” said John Wirt, CEO of Square Ring, referring to the signing of the contract for the rematch of Roy Jones Jr. versus Bernard Hopkins. “Unbelievable! This is a fight that Roy has wanted for a long time and I know that Bernard wants his revenge!” It was May 22nd, 1993 when Jones and Hopkins fought for the vacant IBF middleweight title on the undercard of the Riddick Bowe-Jesse Ferguson heavyweight title fight. Jones won on all scorecards with the tally of 116-112 capturing his first title in a long procession of belts ranging from middleweight to heavyweight! A rematch has been discussed over the years but the holdup was always the demand of Hopkins for the majority of the purse. An unusual agreement was reached that each fighter will receive a 50-50 split but with the stipulation that if a knockout happens, the winner of the contest will receive a 60 percent share with the loser collecting 40 percent. Wirt outlined that Jones-Hopkins II will take place in January or February 2010. The event will be co-promoted with Golden Boy Promotions as pay-per-view event and the site is to be determined. Of course, Jones needs to win his December 2nd showdown against Aussie Danny Green.

Veliz upsets Nievas

Oscar Veliz (27-16-2, 6 KOs) surprised Pablo Nievas (22-7-1,15 KOs) by way of a close unanimous decision in ten exciting rounds. The official scores were 97-96, 97-96, 97.5-96 all for Veliz. The bout took place at the Polideportivo Municipal Colonia 25 de Mayo, in La Pampa, Argentina. The show was promoted by Mario Margossian. There was steady action from beginning to end with each fighter giving as good as they gave. The difference in the fight came in the eighth round when a wicked left hook by Veliz sent Nievas crashing to the canvas. Nievas beat the count but the knockdown was costly as evidenced by the final scores. It’s the second consecutive upset win for Veliz, who stopped former world title challenger Walter Matthysse in five this past June.

It was fast and furious, and it’ll be a moment to remember for a new European middleweight champion Matthew Macklin (25-2, 18 KOs), who has just annihilated capable IBF #5 “Idi” Amin Asikainen at Velodrome, in Machester, UK. Both fighters started the first round quickly, peppering each other with fast and hard combinations. However, once WBC #13 Macklin unloaded his left hook, the fight was virtually over, as Asikainen (26-3, 17 KOs) went down very hard. The Finnish boxer barely made it upright but was floored seconds after with a crushing right hand by Birmingham’s native. He once again beat the count but referee Luigi Muratore waved it off at 2:34 of the first anyway, seeing no consciousness in Amin’s eyes. Ricky Hatton, who is promoting the event, promised to deliver title opportunities for the local crowd-pleaser in the nearest future. (more…)

Unbeaten lightweight Luis Ramos stated that he knows he has to beat veteran fighters that are put in front of him. He sure let his hands do the talking on Thursday night. Ramos won a six round unanimous decision over Cristian Favela before an almost sold-out crowd at Club Nokia at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, CA. The bout headlined a seven-bout “Fight Night Club” card, presented by Golden Boy Promotions. Ramos was coming off a sixth round stoppage victory over Sandro Marcos almost two months ago in the same venue. Favela has faced a long list of prospects and contenders and had hopes of pulling the upset against Ramos. He had lost five of six bouts prior to the Ramos bout. Ramos did his best work from the outside. The southpaw Ramos was content to box, landing two-punch combinations to the head. Ramos slipped the occasional hook to the body.
