Zamora outpoint De Busillet

By Enrico “Erik” Crociati

Italian light welterweight star Brunet Zamora (19-0, 8 KOs) won a unanimous decision over French warrior Christophe De Busillet (23-8-2, 11 KOs) Friday night at The Pala Bianchini in Latina, Italy. With the win the Cuban born Zamora defended his WBA Intecontinental Title at 140lbs for the third time. It was not a great fight, much too tactical with both fighters being careful and many of the rounds following a similar pattern. Zamora used his jab beautifully throughout the fight and was aggressor in the last four rounds which proved to be enough for the three judges to award the Italian fighter. The three judges, Jean-Francois Toupin, Pierluigi Poppi and Gudjon Vilhelm scored the bout 116-114, 115-113 and an incredible 119-110 for the ‘Italian Salsero.’ (Fightnews had it 116-113 for Zamora.)

Fightwriter: Pavlik-Espino

By Graham Houston

This hasn’t exactly been a year from hell for Kelly Pavlik, but I’m sure the middleweight champion will not remember 2009 with a great deal of warmth. Pavlik entered the year after having suffered his first defeat, and a demoralising one at that, when Bernard Hopkins gave him a boxing lesson. The year didn’t start off too badly as Pavlik pounded Marco Antonio Rubio into defeat on a nine-rounds corner retirement in February. Nothing went right after that. A stubborn staph infection of the left hand led to inactivity and an HBO fight against Paul Williams was postponed, then cancelled. There were also rumours of Pavlik not exactly leading a Spartan lifestyle in his hometown of Youngstown, OH, which the fighter attributes to exaggeration and innuendo, what he calls the pressure of being a big fish in a relatively small pond. On top of all this, there was the suggestion that he used his hand problems to duck Williams. (more…)

Fightwriter: Brähmer-Sukhotsky

By Graham Houston

Jürgen Brähmer will be seeking to close out a highly successful 2009 in style when he defends his WBO interim light-heavyweight title against little-known Dmitriy Sukhotsky, of Russia, in Brähmer’s hometown of Schwerin in northern Germany on Saturday. This has been a terrific year for Brähmer, the one-time bad boy of German boxing whose brushes with the law have been well-chronicled. Beaten on points by Hugo Hernan Garay in a game title bid in November 2008, Brähmer has stopped all three of his opponents this year, and he was punching particularly hard in his last couple of fights as he halted Italy’s Antonio Brancalion in 93 seconds and then hammered the strong, game Polish boxer Aleksy Kuziemski in the 11th, scoring four knockdowns, two of them in the first three rounds.

While weather on the East Coast wreaked havoc on travel and holiday plans, there were clear skies and the stars were out on ShoBox: The New Generation in Hinckley, Minn. Friday night when Fernando Guerrero, Shawn Porter and Lanard Lane all remained undefeated with impressive knockouts, each in less than four rounds. “These guys are future stars,” said ShoBox: The New Generation expert analyst Steve Farhood, of Guerrero and Porter, who are now 17-0 (14 KOs) and 12-0 (10 KOs), respectively. “Not only are they fun to watch, but I think they have star potential outside the ring as well. They have pleasing personalities, good smiles, they’re good-looking guys, they speak well. I think the American middleweight scene for 2010-2011 is in good hands.” (more…)

Jubatha wins SA feather title

By Ron Jackson

In an exciting slugfest Sabelo Jubatha stopped Luthando Vukuza in the tenth round to win the South African featherweight title in East London on Friday night. A packed Orient Theatre saw Jubatha (57.10 kg) come from behind to back Vukuza (57.05 kg) up against the ropes in the ninth round and land with a left-right combination to jaw that dumped in on the seat of his pants. Vukuza, 22, just managed to beat the count and the referee would have been justified in stopping the fight with only seconds left in the round. It was a shaky Vukuza who came out for the tenth round and it came as no surprise when the challenger landed with a left hook to the jaw that sent him reeling against the ropes and when he turned his back on Jubutha, referee Andile Matika waved the fight off at 1:34 into the round.

Guerrero stops Nicklow in 4

Unbeaten middleweight Fernando Guerrero (17-0, 14 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Jesse Nicklow (19-2-2, 7 KOs) on Friday night at the Grand Casino Hinckley in Hinckley, Minnesota. Guerrero dropped Nicklow with a right hook early in the fourth. Nicklow fought back gamely, but Guerrero’s attack was too strong and referee Mark Nelson waved it off at 2:09.

In a clash of unbeaten jr middleweights, Shawn “Showtime” Porter (12-0, 10 KOs) was impressive again as he stopped Jamar “Yung Prince” Patterson (8-1, 4 KOs) in round four. Porter dropped Patterson with a big left hook in round four and referee Celestino Ruiz stopped the fight during Porter’s follow-up attack. Time was 1:54.

In a clash of unbeaten welterweights, Lanard Lane (10-0, 7 KOs) scored a second round TKO over Said “The Messenger” El Harrack (8-1, 3 KOs). Lane dropped El Harrack twice in round one, and after Lane rocked El Harrack again in round two, referee Mark Nelson waved it off at 1:38. The stoppage seemed premature.

WBC #10, WBA #14 and IBF #15 cruiserweight Pawel Kolodziej followed the path of another world-ranked contender Grigory Drozd by making a punching bag of well-known American journeyman Rob “All-American Prizefighter” Calloway (now 70-11-2, 57 KOs) tonight at MOSiR Hall in Lodz, Poland. IBC champion Kolodziej was just too much for his faded 40-year old challenger, dropping him once in the first, once in the third and two times in the fifth round. Calloway’s corner mercifully stopped this massacre after the end of the sixth round, saving the veteran from more punishment. The Polish fighter is now 24-0 with 13 KOs. (more…)

Sosnowski new Euro champion

By Alexey Sukachev

Albert “The Dragon” Sosnowski (45-2-1, 27 KOs) is a new European (EBU) heavyweight champion after a workmanlike tactical decision over Italian veteran Paolo Vidoz (26-7, 15 KOs) on Friday night at the famous York Hall in London, England. Sosnowski, who was coming off a memorable draw against Francesco Pianeta and a destruction of Danny Williams, was the busier and quicker pugilist throughout the whole contest, avoiding the slow blows of the Italian plodder and connecting a lot with light but frequent punches from the outside. Vidoz, who seemingly couldn’t avoid another opportunity to fight for the EBU belt (his fifth consecutive failure in European title contests) showed some poise in the opening rounds but slowed down and badly faded down the stretch. Sosnowski was close finishing the job in rounds five and six, but Vidoz survived the fierce onslaught and delivered some heat later on, which was clearly not enough. The official scores were 120-108, 119-109 and 117-111 – for Sosnowski. Fightnews filled the gap with a 118-110 tally. (more…)

Before a sold out crowd of 1,412 fight fans, in the 6 round lightweight main event, unheralded Gloria Ramirez won the hearts of spectators and boxing judges alike and pounded out a 6 round majority decision victory over previously undefeated favorite, standing in at 5’9, Chika Nakamura. Coming into the fight, Ramirez had only won one of her previous nine fights over the last seven years, but was fighting for the third time in the last three months. Meanwhile, Nakamura, although undefeated, was coming off a 13 month stretch of inactivity, the longest of her career. Even so, few could have expected the courageous display that was put on by Ramirez, as she continually attacked her bigger opponent, and then weathered the storm each and every time Nakamura tried to storm back.

Fightwriter: Guerrero-Nicklow

By Graham Houston

Showtime winds up an excellent year of fights on Friday with a three-fight card on ShoBox, headed by unbeaten middleweight Fernando Guerrero in a 10-rounder against an old amateur rival from Maryland, Jessie Nicklow. It seems they met five times in the amateurs, with Nicklow winning twice. Guerrero is one of those fun-to-watch fighters. A southpaw with an aggressive style, he has been meeting a tougher calibre of opposition in the past year, getting off the floor to beat Gabriel Rosado and, in his last fight, scraping through on a majority decision against the durable Ossie Duran (one round on one card from being a draw).

Three boxing cards in three days

Firstly, on Friday Dec. 18 leading Polish promotional group BullIt KnockOut Promotions, led by Andrzej Wasilewski and Piotr Werner, will arrange quite a big boxing event, billed “Wojak Boxing Night” at the very same city of Lodz (but now at MOSiR Hall) with WBC #10, WBA #14 and IBF #15 Pawel Kolodziej (23-0, 12 KOs) as its headliner. Coming off a comfortable unanimous decision over Czech veteran Roman Kracik this June, 25-year old Kolodziej will put his IBC title at stake against the grizzled American journeyman and fringe contender Rob Calloway (70-10-2, 57 KOs), who has just decided to continue his boxing career despite the chain of recent setbacks.
