Lemieux stops Rosado in tenth

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside
Photos: Emily Harney

In front of 6,532 fans at the Barclays Center in New York, David Lemieux and Gabriel Rosado fought the fight of their lives and left nothing behind in their NABF middleweight title fight. Both men started strong and traded leather much to the delight of fight fans in attendance. After Rosado schooled Lemieux in the 2nd round he ended up tasting the canvas in the 3rd round having taken a series of hooks to the head from Lemieux.

The 4th round provided some of the best action to have graced the Barclays Center with both fighters showing no fear in going forward and trading vicious blows resulting in the crowd erupting.

As the fight continued into the late rounds, Rosado’s left eye began to swell causing Rosado to lose his vision and not see Lemieux’s incoming punches. Having sustained enough damage to the eye, all four corners (each doctor along with the NY state commission) brought an end to the fight at 1:45 in round 10. Lemieux moves to 33-2, 31 KOs while Rosado falls to 21-9, 13 KOs. photos

Pascal-Bolonti ends in no contest

A bout between former world champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs) and Roberto Bolonti (35-3-0, 24 KO) ended in a no contest on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Pascal dropped Bolonti in round two, then later in the round he hit Bolonti on the break apparently knocking out Bolonti. The punch didn’t look hard but Bolonti was taken out on a stretcher. After some confusion it was announced that the fight was a no-contest.

A Pascal win would have set up a March 14 showdown between Pascal and WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev, however that bout is still expected to happen.

Centeno KOs De La Rosa; Dulorme edges Lundy

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside
Photos: Emily Harney

In the main undercard bout, Hugo Centeno Jr. (22-0, 12 KOs) scored a devastating knockout over James De La Rosa (23-3, 13 KOs). Centeno Jr knocked down De La Rosa in round one with a straight jab but failed to capitalize on a stunned De La Rosa. As the action became stagnant and while the boos were making the rounds in the crowd, Centeno Jr. pulled out a punch reminiscent of Martinez vs. Williams to floor De La Rosa and end the fight. The official time of the stoppage was 2:26 in round 5. A point to note, this is also one of the first times this year that a Robert Garcia trained fighter has made weight.

In a thrilling crossroad fight, Thomas Dulorme (22-1, 14 KOs) and Hank Lundy (25-4-1, 12 KOs) battled for 10 rounds for the vacant NABF and NABA junior welterweight title. Dulorme started strong and landed a thunderous right hook to floor Lundy towards the end of the first round. Dulorme continued to keep up the pace, landing crisp jabs and crosses in an attempt to rattle Lundy again. Lundy found his best round of the night in the 6th, catching Dulorme with some venomous counter punches that made the Barclays Center come alive. As the rounds continued, Dulorme began to build a tolerance for Lundy’s punches, taking them with ease and giving back just enough in jabs to steal the later rounds. A brawl broke out in the 10th round with Lundy seeking the knockout while Dulorme was content to see out the round. The fight was eventually settled by the judges, who reached a split decision with the scores reading 96-93 Lundy and 96-93, 97-92 to Dulorme.

Off-TV Boxing Results from Brooklyn

By Arvin Nundloll at ringside

Eddie Gomez (17-1, 10 KOs) bounced back from his first defeat earlier this year by knocking down James Winchester (16-11, 6 KOs) in the first round en route to an exciting points win at the Barclays Center. Gomez, fighting in front of his hometown fans, had the fire in his fists and beat Winchester to the punch from the opening bell, knocking Winchester with a vicious right hook to the body. Winchester recovered well and began goading Gomez to keep it up, insinuating that he could deal with whatever Gomez was bringing to the table. As the rounds continued, Gomez used his footwork to remain busy, jabbing to control the distance before unloading a series of body combinations. Winchester was docked a point in round 7 for a repeated low blow. In a bizarre twist of events, round 9 saw a dance off in the ring, with Eddie Gomez returning Winchester’s dance shuffle with his own jiggle. At the end of the 10 round super welterweight bout, the judges awarded the fight to Gomez with scores of 100-88 all round.

Brooklyn native Zachary Ochoa (9-0, 4 KOs), delighted his hometown fans with a convincing decision over Jose Miguel Castro (4-2, 2 KOs. Ochoa knocked down Castro with a beautifully timed right hook to the head. Castro had a case of dejavu as Ochoa landed an overhand right to knock Castro down once more in round 2. Rather than slow down, Ochoa picked up the pace and continued to try and close the night with a KO but Castro was able to keep it together and see out the final rounds. After 6 rounds, all three judges scored the fight 60-52 to Ochoa.

In an entertaining welterweight bout, John Karl Sosa kept his perfect record intact against Jason Thompson with a convincing 8 round decision. Sosa, from Caguas PR, pressured Thompson early on and connected with a series of vicious combinations but continued to get tagged by Thompson’s counter punches. As the later rounds came on, Thompson slowed down while Sosa continued to move and jab with ease. At the end of 8 rounds, the judges at ringside all scored the fight to Sosa by way of 80-72, 79-73 and 79-73.

Light heavyweight D’mitrius Ballard (8-0, 7 KOs) made light work of Tylon Burris (4-3, 2 KOs) in their scheduled 6 round bout. Ballard pressed the action from the start and knocked down Burris in round one. Burris was on the floor again in round 2 but this was due to a low blow from Ballard. The end for Burris came in round 3 where he faced an onslaught of hooks from Ballard and went to the canvas but was deemed unable to continue by the referee. The official time of the stoppage was 2:57 in round 3.

In the opening bout of the night at the Barclays Center, lightweight Lamont Reach (5-0, 2KOs) went the full distance against Alexander Charneco (2-1, 2 KOs) to win on points. Roach went in with heavy hands and came close to a final round KO before the bell saved Charneco. The official scores were 40 34, 40-35 and 40-35 all in favor of Roach.

Results From Toledo

By Lindy Lindell
Photos: Bob Ryder

Using a well-schooled, rapid left jab, native son Sonny Fredrickson dominated a tough Darryl Hayes, Houston, over six brisk-paced rounds last night at the Grand Plaza Hotel in Toledo, Ohio. The seven-bout card was a well-matched Rise Fighting promotion with Fred Vallejo promoting and matchmaking. While all of the fighters emerging from the red corner were winners, they found stout competition in all but two of the bouts.

Fredrickson might be the tallest lightweight out there, though if he is 6’1” as is billed, he’s going to have stand next to a measuring stick to convince this reporter that he’s over six foot. Suffice to say that he is an extremely tall lightweight and the differential between himself and opponent Hayes gave spectators a Mutt-and-Jeff appearance that seemed to portend a mismatch. It wasn’t. (more…)

“Perkovic was a tricky opponent,” said Wallin. “He is an experienced guy and he was in survival mode. It was difficult to get him to the head so I had to work the body. I had some success and that’s what forced him to quit after the fourth-round. (more…)

Full Report: Hurd vs Sanchez

Story & photos by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Maryland middleweight Jarrett Hurd won an uninspiring majority decision over Texan Emmanuel Sanchez in the 6-round main at Harrah’s Casino and Racetrack in Chester, PA Friday night. The lackluster bout topped a showcase parade of Al Haymon fighters, and included a sprinkling of local boxers mixed with several out-of-towners. Although going in, there was little doubt about the outcome of all six fights scheduled, some of the favorites managed to make an impression with strong showings. However, Hurd, (14-0, 8 KOs), was not one them.

Hurd had his hands full with Sanchez, a southpaw who came to fight, but had more attitude than ability against the undefeated pet-pugilist. The pair mixed it up in round one, which teased the sparse crowd that they were about to see a good battle. The rest of the fight, however, did not deliver. (more…)

Fegatilli wins tune-up against Dochev

The fight with Bulgaria’s Kristin Dochev was nothing more than an appetizer for Ermano Fegatilli (30-5) as a fight for the European super featherweight title is on the table for April 2015. Fegatilli is just keeping active rather than developing rust. Even years separated from his first EBU title reign, he’s maintained a champion’s lifestyle. From start to finish, the better man was left unquestioned. Fegatilli and Dochev had some sluggish moments, but Ermano was more active, more refined, and contributed the best of work where it mattered. He took control through the second half of the fight, and outboxed his opponent behind the jab. The judges tallied 80-72, 80-72, and a marginally closer 78-74 for Fegatilli. The local crowd in Antwerp, Belgium offered a warm reception to the proud Italian-born, Belgian-raised, and now Netherlands-based Fegatilli.

He may not be offered such commodity when he faces Romain Jacob, the unbeaten, fine-tuned Frenchman next year. The date is still being locked-in, but it will likely head further to mid-year, April. With that, Fegatilli will likely appear at a local boxing gala again, on the 30th of January. Then, he will be fully prepared to capitalize on the opportunity presented against Jacob.

Bundrage vs. Mundine in 2015?

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Australian promoter Brian Amatruda told Fightnews.com that he has made a substantial offer to the management of IBF light middleweight champion Cornelius Bundrage (34-5, 19 KOs) to defend the title against former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine (47-6, 27 KOs) in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia early in 2015. “I have made Bundrage a good offer and think it will be a great fight,” stated Amatruda.

The 39-year-old Mundine is coming off an upset win over WBC #2 Sergey Rabchenko in a recent Melbourne promotion that attracted 12,000 fight fans. Earlier in the year, Mundine lost to former IBF welterweight champion Joshua Clottey and in 2013, “The Man” became the only boxer to stop Shane Mosley when they clashed in 2013.

The 41-year-old Bundrage regained the title for the second time by outscoring reigning champ Carlos Molina over twelve rounds in October.

Golden Boy and Gary Shaw Productions held the final press conference on Thursday at the show’s venue, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, on Thursday. The main event pits hard hitting David Lemieux (32-2, 30 KOs) against rugged “King” Gabriel Rosado, (21-8, 13 KOs), in what looks like an action packed, fan favorite fight for Lemieux’s NABF Middleweight belt.

The well stocked show which includes Hugo “The Boss” Centeno Jr. (21-0,11 KOs) facing James “The King” De La Rosa (23-2, 13 KOs) in a 10-round middleweight matchup, and Thomas “El Frances” Dulorme (21-1, 14 KOs) squaring off with “Hammerin” Hank Lundy (25-3-1, 12 KOs) in a 10-round bout for the vacant NABF and NABA Junior Welterweight Titles. Also on the show but not televised is rising star Zachary Ochoa (8-0, 4 KOs) who puts his unbeaten record on the line in a six-round super lightweight bout against Puerto Rico’s Jose Miguel Castro (4-1, 2 KOs), plus more.

The three top fights will be telecast on HBO After Dark on Saturday, the sixth. No matter who wins in the main event, the fans are sure to win because Lemieux has the kick of a horse in his fists, and Rosado has a granite chin.

Lemieux appeared calm and confident, while Rosado, was intense, confident, but intense at the final press conference. Rosado’s veteran trainer, Jesse Reed said, “training went exceptionally well. Gabe is very coachable. He’s at a stage in his career where he’s fought all the tough guys and now he’s stepping up and showing his experience.” (more…)

Kennedy Cunningham Heart Transplant Successful

At Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, heavyweight contender and former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham and his wife Livvy were overjoyed this morning to receive the news that their 9 year old daughter Kennedy’s heart transplant surgery was a success. The fearless Kennedy went into surgery around 3:00am. Kennedy’s pre-surgery comment was, “When the clock says it’s about to be fight time, you need to pack up and go. It’s about to be fight time right now.” Kennedy has emerged as the champion in this fight! At 7:30am, the surgeon, Dr. Victor Morell reported that the heart was placed and beating. About an hour and a half later Dr Morell confirmed the surgery went well and the risk factors they were concerned with ended up not being issues at all. The Cunningham’s feel incredibly blessed.

Steve and Livvy issued this statement: “We are so happy to share that early this morning our daughter Kennedy received the gift of life. She received her new heart and is doing very well. This day is so very special to us and the promise of a better and longer life for our daughter trumps any victory boxing could ever give us. This is the ultimate championship right here. We would like to thank everyone for their continued prayers and support. And most importantly we send our sincere condolences to the donor family that through their extraordinary selflessness made this day possible for our daughter. We are forever grateful!”
