So. Calif Fight Scene

By Francisco Salazar

Longtime boxing manager Rolando Arellano has always had a reputation of being an outspoken individual in the sport. From Fernando Vargas to Victor Ortiz, Arellano is never one to mince words and has always stuck up for his fighters. So when he contacted Fightnews.com late Thursday afternoon, Arellano vented his frustrations about last Saturday’s night outcome between Ortiz and now world title belt holder Floyd Mayweather.

The end of the fourth round between the two fighters at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas has been the subject of water cooler talk between diehard and casual boxing fans. The media has spun the actions of both fighters and referee Joe Cortez in every direction, even speculating on the future of Victor Ortiz and the assumption that the only fight for Mayweather will be against Manny Pacquiao.

Arellano candidly spoke on everything from Joe Cortez to the forearms that Mayweather used during the fight. Although he could not defend Ortiz’s intentional head butt on Mayweather before the bizarre ending of the fight, Arellano was clear about what actions Ortiz will take. (more…)

Cherry-Aiken Full Report

The upstart science of complexity holds the premise that the most complex and beautiful systems arise from simple foundations. If the theory holds true then it would apply to all fields of human endeavor in the natural world–including sport. The upstart boxing promotional team Panther Promotions produced a beautiful and complex performance Friday night from The Seminole Hard Rock Live using their own simple yet unique formula. Panther welcomes “freelance” fighters to do battle in evenly-matched bouts. They don’t sign promotional contracts and they don’t manage the fighters, they offer no guarantees other than a fair opportunity. The fact Panther seems to be the only local promoter with this philosophy shows sometimes common sense really isn’t so common after all. For more details and photos click here…

Pirog retains WBO belt

WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15 KOs) scored a tenth round TKO over WBO #1 rated contender Gennady Martirosyan (22-2, 11 KOs) on Sunday night at the Olimp Sports Palace in Krasnodar, Russia. The 6’1 Pirog gave Martirosyan a steady diet of leather throughout the fight while the 5’7 challenger had difficulty getting into punching range. Pirog delivered a merciless series of unanswered punched at the end of round ten and the Martirosyan corner pulled their man out between rounds.

Earlier, jr welterweight Khabib Allakhverdiev (15-0, 6 KOs) won a six round technical decision over former unified lightweight champion Nate Campbell (34-8-1, 9 KOs). The 39-year-old Campbell has now lost four of his last five.

Ex-JBC Boss Kojima passes

By Joe Koizumi

Former executive secretary of the Japan Boxing Commission (JBC), Shigeru Kojima, at the age of eighty, passed away because of pneumonia on August 26. Even though Kojima already retired five years ago, it seems strange that his family only had a private funeral service without our knowledge about a month ago. We, boxing people here, are greatly startled at the sorrowful news and deeply appreciate his previous contribution to our boxing world. Having graduated from Meiji University, Kojima once served as secretary of a congressman and ex-prime minister Tetsu Katayama before entering the JBC in 1964. Kojima succeeded his predecessor Kotai Kikuchi as executive secretary in 1972. He served well in association with the JPBA (Japan Professional Boxing Association; the union of licensed managers) to improve the system to administrate our boxing fraternity. Kojima, for thirty-four years, attended all conventions of the WBA and the WBC, only which the JBC has affiliated with. Though he was a short person, he sometimes revealed his big heart in dealing with difficult matters. He was a man. May his soul rest in peace.

European heavyweight champion Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1, 21 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Michael Sprott (36-17, 17 KOs) at the Dima Sport Center in Hamburg, Germany. The 6’7 Dimitrenko kept Sprott mostly at bay with his jab as he worked from long range banking round after round. A desperate Sprott tried to get back into the fight by roughing up Dimitrenko late. Dimitrenko need time to recover from a low blow in round ten and Sprott was deducted a point by referee Massimo Barrovecchio for hitting after the bell at the conclusion of that round. Sprott was warned for a headbutt in the eleventh and Sprott was deducted another point for throwing Dimitrenko to the canvas in the twelfth. Scores were 119-108, 117-111, 116-111.

After his fourth round win last night over Russian Petr Petrov in his native Argentina before 7,000 enthusiastic fans, Marcos Maidana not only retained his WBA super lightweight title but, more importantly, he is now ready for a big challenge in his return to America. “It was great fighting before my own people. They gave me tremendous support as they always do. I was a little nervous in the first two rounds but then I was able to do what I had been training for. Petrov is a skillful fighter but couldn’t take my punches,” Maidana said.

“Erik Morales has been saying many things and calling me out. It’s not personal ’cause I respect him. He did his part against Cano and I did my part against Petrov. So if he wants the rematch with me and unify the titles, I’m ready for him in December like I’ve said,” “El Chino” added. “He said I didn’t wanna give him the rematch and that was a lie. Plain and simple. He puts his WBC title and I put my WBA title on the line and we have a fight in December. If he’s not ready, he should shut up and I’ll face some of the other big guys. This time I’ll waste no time in repeating my call to The Queen Khan ’cause everybody knows that he runs scared of me,” the WBA super lightweight champ said. (more…)
