WBA postpones purse bid

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBA has determined to defer for thirty days the purse bid for the cruiserweight champion Guillermo Jones and Russian challenger Valery Brudov. The purse bid was scheduled to take place on December 21 at WBA Headquarters in Panama City. Apparently representatives of both boxers requested an extension.

Kolodziej crushes Calloway

Wawrzyk, Kostecki and Bienias victorious

By Alexey Sukachev

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…)

Ramirez upsets Nakamura

By Rocco Morales

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).

Early Christmas for Polish fans

Three boxing cards in three days

By Alexey Sukachev

As usual, Christmas will be celebrated on December 25th. However, for the vast majority of Polish boxing fans, their dreams, inspired by a huge tournament on Oct. 24 in Lodz with the “Polish fight of the century” between Tomasz Adamek and Andrzej Golota, will continue to come into thriving life on this coming weekend. 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.

Hasegawa keeps title for 10th time

By Joe Koizumi

WBC bantam champ Hozumi Hasegawa (28-2, 12 KOs), 117.75, impressively scored his tenth defense as he exploded a vicous double left cross to Nicaraguan challenger Alvaro Perez (18-2-1-3NC, 12 KOs), 117, and dropped him face first prone to prompt the referee’s immediate halt at 2:38 of the fourth round on Friday in Kobe, Japan. Hasegawa, a couple of days after his twenty-ninth birthday, celebrated it with his tenth defense by his fifth stoppage in a row. Perez, 27, fought aggressively from the start, throwing big shots to the cautiously counterpunching champ. As the fight progressed, Hasegawa found his range and rhythm with stinging southpaw jabs and caught him with good lefts to the face. Perez, another southpaw, landed a solid left early in the second, but gradually yielded the initiative to the aggressive and more accurate champ. Hasegawa may renounce his 118-pound belt to move up to the 122-pound or 126-pound category afterwards. (More to come)

Danny Green Update

By Craig Watt

When Danny Green stopped Roy Jones Jr in the first round in Sydney on December 2nd he immediately called out Bernard Hopkins who was pencilled to take on the former eight time world champion, Jones Jr in March 2010 in a major PPV bout in the US. In the lead up to the Jones fight Green was labeled a “tomato can” by Hopkins but now it seems that he is being tempted to follow in the footsteps of Jones Jr and come to fight in Australia in mid 2010. On Friday Hopkins confirmed the fight was, “more than 50% but not quite 100%” after Green, his trainer Angelo Hyder and Garry Shaw met Golden Boy Promotions last week. Green landed back in Sydney on Friday for the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race where he is taking part for charity and seems confident the fight will happen. (more…)

Unbeaten junior featherweight Leo “El Teremoto” Santa Cruz (12-0-1, 4 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Mexican veteran Juan Jose “Pinocho” Beltran (19-16-3, 11 KOs) on Thursday night at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles. The 21-year-old Santa Cruz, from nearby Lincoln Heights, simply had too much strength, speed and power as he broke down the shorter Beltran. Referee Dr. Lou Moret waved it off at 2:17 of round three with Beltran under heavy fire.

Former world title challenger Edner “Cherry Bomb” Cherry (21-6-2, 13 KOs) impressively dismantled Jovann Jones (9-8, 4 KOs) in a lightweight clash. Cherry knocked down Jones in each of the three rounds contested. Referee Ray Corona waved it off at 1:14 of the third round after Cherry dropped Jones for the third time. It was Cherry’s first bout under the TKO Boxing Promotions banner and his first ring appearance since his close, hard fought twelve round decision loss to junior welterweight world champion Timothy Bradley in September 2008. Cherry is confident that he will be one of the strongest boxers in the 135lb division as he works towards another world title shot. (more…)
