USBA cruiserweight titleholder Garrett Wilson (11-5-1, 5 KOs) scored a spectacular come from behind KO over Chuck Mussachio (17-2-2, 5 KOs) on Saturday night at Ballys in Atlantic City.

Wilson, however, took it out of the hands of the judges with a huge overhand right that laid out Mussachio at the :54 mark.

Welterweight Ronald Cruz (15-0, 12 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Anges Adjaho (25-7, 14 KOs). The big-punching Cruz dropped Adjaho twice in the fifth and the bout was waved off during his follow up barrage. Time was 2:54.

Dib destroys Servidei

IBF featherweight champion Billy “The Kid” Dib (33-1, 20 KOs) was at his best when he made the first defense of the title and stopped IBF # 8 Alberto Servidei (31-1-2, 7 KOs) in round one at the Homebush Sports Center, Sydney, NSW, Australia on Saturday. Dib scored with effective left hand leads and power right shots that had Italy’s former European champion on the defensive but the champion found the openings and it was obvious early in the fight–the visitor was in trouble. The IBF champion maintained the attack and moved the challenger into the neutral corner where he delivered an eleven punch barrage with final punch–a left rip under the rib cage dropping Servidei. Referee Pete Podgorski of the USA counting out the challenger at 2:38. Dib said, “I wanted to make a statement tonight against Servidei. I want the featherweights to know I am the best in the division. I have all the respect in the world for WBA champion Chris John who has been a long time champion but I am the IBF champion so let’s see who is the best champion.” Dib captured the IBF title in July with a clear twelve round decision over Mexico’s.

De Mori, Alexander collide Sunday

Australian heavyweight Mark “The Dominator” de Mori (16-1-2, 14 KOs) is finally stepping back in the ring this Sunday at the Cockburn Basketball Centre in Perth Australia when he faces American Dominique “Diamond” Alexander (20-12-1, 9 KOs). Alexander has arrived in Perth to take on de Mori, whose last fight was over two years ago and has since gone through a series of frustrating injuries and negotiation breakdowns.

The Dominator is currently signed with Don King and will be hoping to use this fight as good preparation for his return to the big fights in the US.

“It’s a huge thing to bring an American Heavyweight to Perth. I will make sure I’ll send him home with his tail between his legs,” de Mori said. “I want Perth people to come out and support me and make Alexander feel like he’s walking into the Lion’s Den.” (more…)

Introducing Alex Soto

There are many touchstones Alex Soto can look to when it comes to keeping the first time UFC jitters at bay before his Octagon debut this Saturday against Michael McDonald. He can refer back to his time in Afghanistan as a member of the United States Army, an interesting trip to his native Tijuana for one of his first amateur fights, or his current job as a dolphin trainer for the Navy. But instead, he will find inspiration in the person he calls “the best fighter I ever met.” . . . Click here for more by Thomas Gerbasi, UFC.com

Williams scores big knockout victory

“Dangerous” Dannie Williams (20-1, 16 KOs) continued his knockout ways with another “highlight reel” style stoppage, dropping journeyman lightweight John Willoughby (3-11, 2 KOs) for the count at 1:59 of the 2nd round on Friday night. Williams, who had an ESPN “Plays of the Week” knockout at the same location, the St. Charles, MO Ameristar Casino Spa Resort, in August, was never in danger and when the opportunity arose, fired a right hand, left hook, right hand combination. Willoughby immediately dropped to the canvas, prompting referee Mike England to rush to his aid while calling the doctor into the ring.

His opponent’s prior record aside, Williams feels that every time he steps through the ropes, “They are gunning for me because they have nothing to lose.” The current WBC Continental Americas lightweight titlist’s next contest comes rather quickly, January 6, 2012, against an opponent to be determined.

Iwasa wins Japanese 118 lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos: Boxing Beat

21-year-old ex-amateur champ Ryosuke Iwasa (10-1, 7 KOs), 118, acquired the Japanese bantamweight belt as he maintained the pressure, floored Japan-based Filipino Jerope Mercado Zuiyama (24-2-3, 8 KOs), 117.75, in the fifth session and earned a unanimous decision (98-92 twice and 97-92) over ten fast rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. It was a grudge fight for Iwasa, in a sense, since the talented southpaw (with an amateur mark of 60-6, 44 stoppages) had a crack at the national throne against Shinsuke Yamanaka only to suffer a come-from-behind stoppage in the tenth and final round last March. Yamanaka then renounced the Japanese title and acquired the vacant WBC bantam belt by stopping Christian Esquivel some two weeks ago. The once-beaten Iwasa thus fought in a quest for the same national diadem again. For more details and photos click here…
