Undefeated IBO super middleweight champion Zac Dunn (19-0, 15 KOs) escaped with a split decision win over tough journeyman Derrick Findley (22-17-1, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at The Paramount in Huntington, NY.

By Felipe Leon

Despite only featuring four professional boxing matches, the nearly sold-out crowd last night, Friday, October 23rd, left the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel with a huge smile on their faces. California Hall of Fame promoter Bobby D. Presents put on a fireworks-filled fight card featuring all-action from top to bottom. During the intermission, a short but emotive ceremony was presided to bring attention to veteran California State official Pat Russell’s last fight card as a referee. After thirty-five years, Mr. Russell has decided to retire as a referee but will still work as a judge. Promoter Bobby DePhilippis mentioned in a quick speech that Mr. Russell made his debut as referee on one of his cards and now will be doing his last fight on a Bobby D. Presents fight night.

In the main event, undefeated San Diego fighter Emmanuel “Renegade” Robles (14-0-1, 4KO) remained so as he scored a spectacular second round knockout over the game Leon “3rd Generation” Spinks III (11-3-1, 7KO) in a scheduled light welterweight eight. (more…)

JoJo, Pitbull triumph at Fantasy Springs

By Miguel Maravilla at ringside

2012 U.S. Olympian undefeated featherweight prospect Joseph “JoJo” Diaz Jr. of South El Monte, California dominated tough Ruben “Canelito” Tamayo in the 10-round featherweight main event at the Fantasy Springs Events Center in Indio, California.

All three judges scored it 100-90 as Joseph Diaz Jr. stays undefeated improving to 18-0, 10 KOs. Ruben Tamayo goes to 23-7-4, 15 KOs.

Diaz boxed the taller Tamayo patiently to start off in round one. The second round saw Diaz being selective sticking the jab following up with big shots. A body shot by Diaz in round three connected solidly as Tamayo was momentarily staggered Diaz followed up with combinations. Continuing to go to the body in round four Diaz connected on the belt line as Tamayo complained of a low blow. Diaz continued to tee off in round five as he box patiently and fired away on Tamayo in the final seconds.

Halfway through in round six Diaz began to take control outworking and out punching Tamayo. A pair of hard right hooks by Diaz connected solidly to start off round seven, Diaz continued to tag Tamayo throughout the round. The 2012 Olympian Diaz continued to display his dominance in round eight outclassing the tough Tamayo. Diaz continued to show aggression in the tenth and final round as he proved to be the more skilled fighter through ten in route to a unanimous decision.

East LA super welterweight Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez (19-0, 13 KOs) punished Jorge “Pantera” Silva (19-10-2, 12 KOs) for ten rounds. Gomez pressed with power shots as Silva taunted him early on. Gomez’s left eye began swell in round six as Silva pressed forward. Silva proved to be a very difficult awkward task after that pressing Gomez and smothering him. At the end of round nine Gomez and Silva clashed heads drawing a cut from both men. In the bloody and exciting tenth and final round, both Gomez and Silva went toe to toe. All three judges scored the bout 100-90 for “The Pitbull.” (more…)

WBA strips 130lb interim champ Lopez

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBA Championships Committee has stripped the WBA interim super featherweight belt from Mexican Emmanuel “El Pollo” Lopez due to 180 days of inactivity. Lopez, who is currently embroiled in a legal dispute involving his manager and promoter, claimed he was unable to comply with a WBA order to defend due to injury. However, the WBA does not offer the “champion in recess” option to interim beltholders. Therefore, Lopez is out and mandatory challenger Jazreel Corrales of Panama will fight for the vacant interim world title against the highest available contender.

Ortiz, Jennings highlight quotes

Golden Boy has released quotes from WBA “interim” heavyweight world champion Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz (23-0, 20 KOs) and challenger Bryant “By-By” Jennings (19-1, 10 KOs) in the official announcement of their December 19 HBO clash at the Turning Stone Resort Casino, in Verona, New York.

Below are the highlights:

Luis Ortiz: I think Jennings doesn’t even know what he’s stepping in to on the 19th, I’m coming to make a statement. This fight is going to be an exciting stepping stone to achieve my dream.”
 
Bryant Jennings: The world will see a great fight when I square off against Ortiz, that I can guarantee you. I’ll be driving the WBA belt back home to Philly.

Oscar De La Hoya: Luis is so hungry to continue his rise in the division that he has agreed to fight an enormously talented opponent in Bryant Jennings just two months after Luis’ destruction of Matias Vidondo to win the WBA interim title.

Gary Shaw: Ortiz has never faced a challenge of a Philadelphia fighter like Bryant Jennings and he’s going to find out real quick that this is another level. Jennings is ready to continue his quest to become heavyweight champion with VADA testing agreed to by both promotional companies for this fight.
