Dream Team adds PR fighters

By Phil Doherty

There are two schools of thought regarding which Caribbean island nation produces the best boxers in the world. One group enthusiastically claims the answer lies obviously a mere ninety miles from Florida’s shores in Cuba. The other proudly responds that honor belongs to the US territory of Puerto Rico. However one looks at it, Dream Team Boxing Promotion’s high-profile signings this past weekend in Puerto Rico demonstrate a significant power shift for the upstart team. The Miami-based promotional powerhouse headed by Cuban-American promoters Carlos Rodriguez and Henry Rivalta started their dream with a core group of talented young Cuban prospects including heavyweight Luis “El Mercedes” Ortiz, Richard “El Tigre” Abril and Yoandris “El Niño” Salinas. Dream Team spread the wealth with subsequent acquisitions including Dominican-born world-ranked welterweight Ed “The Lion” Paredes and Carlos “Chocorroncito” Buitrago of Nicaragua.

“When I get in there I make good fighters look ordinary,” said unbeaten WBO #2 rated welterweight Kell Brook, who stopped Rafal Jackiewicz in the sixth round of their world title eliminator clash on Saturday in Sheffield, England. “Jackiewicz has beaten Jan Zaveck, he’s held the European title and mixed with big names and on Saturday he didn’t hit me, I didn’t move out of second gear and could’ve finish it whenever I wanted to. I’m in that elite league now – I’m headlining sold-out hometown shows and I’ve got the sponsorship deals rolling in, only good things can happen from now on. I want Amir Khan but he doesn’t want me, it’s just a matter of time though. I keep beating whoever Eddie Hearn puts in front of me and the public want it, they’ll demand it. When I get that world title belt it’ll be a massive fight.”

Tapales defeats Mubiru

By Joe Koizumi

Up-and-coming 19-year-old Filipino southpaw, OPBF#5 super-flyweight Marlon Tapales (19-1, 6 KOs), 117, impressively defeated Japan-based Ugandan Martin Mubiru (8-3, 5 KOs), 117, by a unanimous decision (97-89 and 96-90 twice) over ten hard-fought rounds on Sunday in Liloan, Cebu, Philippines. Tapales, who previously served as sparring partner for the current WBC 105-pound champ Kazuto Ioka in Japan, floored the game opponent with a left uppercut in the fourth and with a southpaw right hook in the sixth. Mubiru fought back hard, but Tapales was still fresh and ferocious enough to hurt the fading Ugandan down the stretch. Mubiru had been evaluated highly thanks to his upset eighth round stoppage of ex-Korean champ Big Yoo (AKA Hayato Kimura) last October, but Tapales proved too much for him chiefly because of his superior stamina in later rounds.

Edmonton-based heavyweight Tye Fields collected win number 49 Friday night with a 6th round TKO victory over the always tough Raphael Butler at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. Time of the stoppage was 2:37 of round six in their ten round main event on the KO Boxing-promoted card. The victory marked the Montana-born boxer’s fourth consecutive victory since last tasting defeat, improving his overall record to 49-4, 44 KOs). Butler, who took Canadian heavyweight champ Neven Pajkic the distance in a close slugfest just two bouts ago, simply didn’t have the power nor ring savvy to keep the 6’8 Fields timid or cautious at any point in the contest.

Guerrero wins IBF 115lb title

In a war with more fireworks than a Chinese New Year, Rodrigo “Gato” Guerrero (16-3-1, 10KOs) exacted his revenge over San Antonio, TX’s Raul “Cobra” Martinez (28-2, 16KOs) with a unanimous six round technical decision to capture the vacant IBF super flyweight title on Saturday night at the Auditorio Municipal in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Guerrero of Mexico City scored the harder punches through out the brawl, even dropping the Martinez with a straight left in the third round. Martinez held his own with slick boxing and quick combination punching but in the sixth, he suffered a cut over his right eye from a accidental head butt. The ringside doctor deemed he couldn’t continue. Tom Miller had it 59-54 while Marty Denkin and Chris Wilson saw it a much closer 57-56 for the new champ.

After 10 dominating rounds, Tijuana’s “Aztec Princess” Jackie Nava (25-4-3, 11KOs) treated her hometown fans to another win when she was awarded a landslide unanimous decision over over matched Soledad “Guerrera” Matthysse (9-3-1, 1KO). Nava scored with big rights that bloodied the nose of the Argentine and a constant attack to the body although the very tough Matthysse was the busier of the two. Official scores were 100-90 twice and 99-91. For more details and photos click here…
