More on Huck, Helinius wins

Photos courtesy Photo Wende

WBO Cruiserweight Champion Marco “Captain” Huck (32-1, 23 KOs) made his sixth successful title defence on Saturday night in Halle, Germany when he defeated brave challenger Ran Nakash on points. Fighting in front of 5,300 fans at the Gerry Weber Stadion, Huck was ahead 118-110, 118-110 and 116-112 after twelve hard-fought rounds. An aggressive Nakash moved forward from the first bell on, with Huck trying to get off his powerful combinations.  From the fifth round onwards, Huck stamped his authority on the fight, landing hard uppercuts that bruised the face of his opponent. The crowd roared every time Huck launched one of his trademark assaults, but Nakash remained active and refused to go down. “He was a very dangerous opponent and I had to be on alert until the very end,” Huck said. “My uppercuts did the damage tonight. It was great to be in the ring in front of my home fans and give them an exciting fight.” For more details and photos click here…

Patrick Nielsen (9-0, 5 KOs) clinched the next victory on his way up the rankings on Saturday night when he outclassed Gary Boulden (4-2-2) at the TV2 Fight Night in Herning. Against his aggressive opponent, the 20-year-old Dane was in full control throughout as he won every single round on the judges´ scorecards. In the last round, Nielsen was on verge of stopping a badly-cut Boulden, who went down from a body shot but scrambled back to his feet. The scores were 80-71, 80-71, 80-71. “This was a big step up for me against a tough opponent,” Nielsen said. “He was very aggressive and came to fight so I am happy I gave my fans a good victory. It was the first time I fought eight rounds at three minutes so I am pleased.” For more details and photos click here…

New site for Narvaez-Seda

A change of date was becoming very possible for the April 15 Cesar Seda, Jr. vs. Omar Narvaez WBO Super Flyweight Championship fight; however, a venue change has instead been made. With the original site, Polideportivo Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina, no longer available, it has been moved to the “Estadio Osvaldo Casanova” Club Estudiantes de la Ciudad de Bahia Blanca, in Buenos Aires.

“This is good news because this could interrupt concentration for ‘Junito’ in this fight and this is the fight of his life. He has to be clear-minded to ensure his victory,” explains Ceda’s co-promoter, Javier Bustillo, President of Universal Promotions (along with Gary Shaw of Gary Shaw Productions). (more…)

Full report from Jupiter, Fla.

Baseball and boxing competed long ago for the national sports consciousness, with boxing holding a distinct edge. Once upon a time, Jack Dempsey’s ring exploits received more press than Babe Ruth’s legendary home plate endeavors. Yet today baseball continues to be a “major league” sport while boxing struggles to get back on base. The normally nocturnal business of live boxing switch-hit yesterday to a bright afternoon at the Marlins and Cardinals baseball spring training home in Roger Dean Stadium. Promoter Rebecca Valenza of Botanileeko Promotions and boxing manager Thomas J. Hickey tirelessly campaigned to organize the Fight(s) for the Pink event on behalf of the South Florida affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Fight for the Cure®. For more details and photos click here…

New Stieglitz opponent named

The new opponent for WBO world champion Robert Stieglitz (39-2, 23 KOs) in his upcoming title defense is a very dangerous fighter. After the cancellation of the unification duel against WBA champion Dimitri Sartison due to injury, the SES champion Stieglitz will now face the southpaw contender Khoren Gevor (31-5, 16 KOs). “We were very lucky in finding a new opponent on such short notice,” promotor Ulf Steinforth said. The Armenian born and WBO# 11 rated Gevor was originally scheduled to fight against the current European champion Matthew Macklin on April 16 in Manchester in a WBA eliminator fight. But Macklin had called off the battle at the beginning of last week. “Khoren Gevor is in full training and prepared for the 12 rounds,” Steinforth added. (more…)

“Rising Stars Battle at the Bosque” turned “Falling Star Battered at the Bosque” last night when unbeaten Archie Ray Marquez came close to suffering his first professional loss against a last-minute sub.

The eight-round lightweight main event had originally featured the Albuquerque hopeful promoted by Gary Shaw against a no-hoper who’d dropped nine of his last ten bouts. Despite stepping in at the 11th hour, Nevada’s Johnny Frazier provided something of an upgrade, having lost only five of his last seven with none of those losses coming by way of knockout . . .

Wakimoto stops Sakchai

Japanese southpaw prospect, JBC#7 Masayuki Wakimoto (16-3, 7 KOs), 126, looked so impressive that he floored Sakchai Sor. Tanapinyo (13-5, 4 KOs), 125.5, each twice in the first two sessions and finally chalked up a fine TKO victory at 1:48 of the second round in a scheduled ten on Sunday in Takasago, Japan.

Having been demolished by highly world-rated Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo in five furious rounds in Thailand last December, Wakaimoto, 22, showed a gallant and great return to the ring warfare, displaying his southpaw lefts that overwhelmed the Thailander from the outset. Wakimoto, tall as a 126-pounder and hard-punching with his left hand, looked promising if he steadily keeps fighting on proper opponents.
Promoter: Takasago Promotions.

Marquez survives late sub

Ringside by Chris Cozzone & Gerardo Martinez

“Tougher than expected” might be understating late sub Johnny Frazier (2-6-3, 2 KOs), who came close to derailing unbeaten Gary Shaw Promotions’ fighter Archie Ray Marquez (11-0, 8 KOs, 1 NC) tonight at the Santa Ana Star Casino in Bernalillo, N.M. on a card promoted by Crespin Boxing Promotions and Mirabal Boxing. Through six rounds it was a relatively close fight, with Marquez ahead from sheer aggression. But in round seven, Frazier floored Marquez who made the count on shaky legs just as the bell rang. In the eighth and final round, Frazier stunned Marquez again with another knockdown. The bigger shock came when referee Tony Rosales disregarded what appeared to all a clean knockdown, then subtracted a point from Frazier for hitting Marquez behind the head. The fight went to the cards with Marquez winning a unanimous decision, scores of 78-72 twice and 77-74.

The referee’s move was one of several questionable decisions seen tonight. (more…)

Wlodarczyk, Palacios quotes

By Przemek Garczraczyk in Bydgoszcz
Photos: Piotr Duszczyk/Ringpolska

Challenger Francisco “The Wizard” Palacios says he did enough to win comfortably. WBC cruiserweight titleholder Krzysztof “Diablo” Włodarczyk says Palacios didn’t risk enough to beat a champion.

What is certain is that neither fighter presented their full skills during Saturday’s WBC cruiserweight championship fight in Bydgoszcz, Poland. In the end, judges decided that the current champion did enough to earn a split decision. Although scores 116-113 for Włodarczyk and 115-113 for Palacios both have some merit, the Italian judge who decided that Włodarczyk dominated with an 118-112 advantage clearly was watching a different bout than the 8,000+ fans, 60 member media contingent and millions watching on the TV screen.

Referee Frank Santore immediately brought Wilson to have the ring doctor look at the wound and advised him not to continue.
