Looking strong, quick and precise, former multi-divisonal champion Fernando “Kochulito” Montiel (54-4-2, 39KO) won a wide unanimous decision over Filipino Rogelio Jun “Hercules” Doliguez (19-3-2, 14KO) in the ten round ten main event to keep his title aspirations alive in the featherweight division. The fight was televised live in Mexico by the Azteca channel and presented by Zanfer Promotions as part of a fifteen-bout fight card.

The former super flyweight, super flyweight and bantamweight world champion Montiel had one seven straight since losing to Victor Terrazas back in late 2011 in a bid for the WBC Silver 122 pound title while Doliguez is no stranger to Tijuana since it was in the city where he suffered his first loss as a pro to the unheralded Gabriel Piña of Ensenada in April of 2014.

Reed Remains Undefeated in DC

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Popular undefeated Waldorf, MD super lightweight Mike “Yes, Indeed” Reed continued his impressive pro campaign with a second-round TKO of veteran Edgar Soto of Pawtucket, RI Saturday night in front of packed house at the Sphinx Club in Washington, DC. The bout was the main event of the Keystone Boxing -promoted card. Reed, a Top Rank Promotions signee, used fast hands to drop Soto twice in the first round then sent Soto to his knees with a minute to go in the second round before the bout was stopped at 2:10.

“He was used to fighting slower guys at 147,” Reed told Fightnews. “I have extremely fast hands for someone at 140 so he had some difficulty with that.”

Reed is now 13-0, seven KO’s while Soto falls to 12-8, four KO’s. (more…)

The classic rivalry between Puerto Rico and Mexico continued Saturday night at the Roger Mendoza Coliseum in Caguas with super bantamweight Luis Orlando Del Valle and light flyweight Angel ‘Tito’ Acosta winning their respective bouts by knockout.

Del Valle (18-2, 13 KOs) went to war against Roberto Castañeda (21-9-1. 15 KOs). By the third chapter there was an accidental clash of heads where Del Valle came out with a cut on his nose. ‘Orlandito’ never left his fight plan and continued to punish an exhausted Castañeda. By the eight round Del Valle landed a brutal right hand that ended the fight. It was Castañeda’s first bout in Caguas since his controversial loss to Jose “Wonder Boy” Lopez.

Acosta improved his record to 10-0, 10 KOs against Armando Vazquez (23-14-1, 6 KOs). During the very first round Acosta began implementing his pace and strength during the initial minutes exchanging heavy blows but taking the best part of a fiery encounter. The end came at 2:41. (more…)

Oosthuizen wins vacant IBO light heavyweight belt

By Ron Jackson

Tommy Oosthuizen out boxed Ryno Liebenberg over 12 rounds to win on a split decision and claim the vacant IBO light-heavyweight belt at the Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Saturday night. The southpaw Oosthuizen won with scores of 117-111 on the cards of Deon Dwarte and Ace Makaluza, but judge Simon Xamlashe was way of the mark with a score of 115-113 for Liebenberg. A confident Oosthuizen looked in excellent condition as he boxed through twelve sessions without fading in the later rounds as he has done in recent fights.

After a quiet opening round a confident Oosthuizen, a former IBO super-middleweight champion, showed speed and outstanding footwork, and was still up on his toes right through. Liebenberg never really got into the fight as he chased his more experienced, bigger and taller opponent around the ring with very little effect. Referee Grzegorz Molenda from Poland cautioned Liebenberg a few times for coming in low with his head and also hitting behind the neck in the clinches.

Oosthuizen (79kg) improved his record to 25-0-2; 14 and Liebenberg (79.36kg) dropped to 16-2; 11. (more…)

WBO, WBA and IBF light heavyweight world champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (27-0-1, 24 KOs) scored a spectacular eighth round TKO over former world champion Jean Pascal (29-3-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Both fighters came out firing hard shots trying to end it. Kovalev rocked Pascal in round three with Pascal falling into the ropes. Referee Luis Pabon gave a count right to Pascal right before the bell. Pascal landed some big shots in round four. It was a fire fight in the fifth and sixth. Kovalev outworked Pascal in round seven. Kovalev rocked Pascal in round eight, and after Kovalev connected with two huge right hands Pabon waved it off. Time was 1:03.

“How it started I didn’t like,” said Kovalev afterward. “After the fourth round I gained control. He was mine after that. He got me a couple good punches. It’s boxing.”

[On a potential fight with WBC champ Adonis Stevenson] “I am ready for anything.”

[On the possibility of a rematch with Pascal] I am ready for any fights. “If my promoter says I fight Jean Pascal again, I will fight him.” (more…)

In an IBF heavyweight eliminator, unbeaten IBF #2 Vyacheslav “Czar” Glazkov (20-0-1, 12 KOs) won a dull twelve round unanimous decision over IBF #4 Steve “U.S.S.” Cunningham (28-7, 13 KOs). Very tactical fight. Cunningham appeared to have a slight edge in the first few rounds, but Glazkov, who is always a slow starter, began to show signs of life in the fifth round. Scores were 116-112, 115-113, 116-112 for Glazkov, who is now mandatory challenger for Ukrainian countryman and world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.

The PunchStat had Glazkov landing a greater percentage of his shots but a smaller total number of shots (Glazkov 144/441 – 33%; Cunningham 180/649 – 28%). Their jabs landed were almost identical (Glazkov 60/215 – 28%; Cunningham 57/309 – 18%), but Cunningham had the edge with the power punches landed. Their power punch percentages were near even (Glazkov 84/226 – 37%; Cunningham 123-340 – 36%).

The North American belt is travelling to South Africa. Malawi born Isaac Chilemba (24-2-2, 10KOs) controlled all the action, what there was of it, in a ten round tilt at the Bell Centre in Montreal, scoring a unanimous decision over a reluctant Vasily Lepikhin (17-1, 9KOs), handing the Ukrainian fighter his first career loss. After a fairly even second, Chilemba dominated the rest of the way, scoring a 100-90, 99-91, 99-91 victory and capturing the vacant NABF light-heavyweight title. Chilemba landed a clean uppercut in round four and was able to fire off combinations and dance circles around an opponent with little or no interest in engaging. Lepikhin waved his opponent forward in the 7th round, but even when he was in range, did little except lay on the ropes and did little to turn the fight around. Chilemba was not overly busy, but was able to reach his opponent every round with little fear of reprisal.

Hyland, Rosinsky, Sullivan victorious at MSG

By Matt Richardson at ringside

On a card featuring mixed professional and amateur action at the Theater at Madison Square Garden, Dublin Ireland’s Patrick Hyland defeated Manuel Herrera in a junior lightweight fight. Hyland dropped Manuel Herrera with a body punch in the fourth round and Herrera couldn’t or wouldn’t rise and took a full ten-count instead. The time of the knocked out was 1:04. The card, labeled “McMayhem in Midtown,” was promoted by Lou DiBella.

Hyland (30-1, 14 KO’s) seemed to land every punch he threw in the preceding three rounds. He rocked Herrera (21-15-1, 15 KO’s) in the second round and had his way with him in the third, too. Hyland continued to land at will in the fourth but just when it appeared that he was preparing to take a breather he connected with the fight ending shot, instead.

Former Golden Gloves champion Will Rosinsky topped journeyman Paul Gonsalves in the co-featured light heavyweight fight of the night. Rosinsky (18-2, 9 KO’s) dropped Gonsalves four times for an emphatic first round stoppage. The first knockdown came after Rosinsky connected with two hooks to the body. Gonsalves (7-6-1, 3 KO’s) rose unsteadily and was soon back in the same position after taking a right to the body. The action continued again but Gonsalves was once more put on the floor after taking punches to the torso. A fourth and final knockdown in the final seconds of the round was more than enough to convince referee Shada Murdaugh to end the fight at the 2:59 mark. The victory, which Rosinsky labeled “very satisfying,” was the light heavyweight’s second following a 2012 defeat to former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik. (more…)

Kovalev-Pascal undercard results from Montreal

By Dave Spencer at ringside

Super-lightweight David Theroux (6-0 4KO) remained perfect as he obliterated the usually durable Lukaz Janik (12-10-1 6KO) with three knockdowns in the third, the official end coming at 2:31. Janik was making his fourth trip to Montreal where he has gone rounds before but the 21-year-old Theroux went to the body and didn’t let up on the Polish import, scoring the final knockdown chasing his opponent with only the left to the body in mind and had no problems in landing it and making it count.

Former world title challenger Dierry Jean (28-1 20 KO) returned to the ring after a six month absence and didn’t miss a beat, scoring a KO victory at 2:48 of the 3rd round over an out-matched Carlos Reyes (24-4-1 16KO). Jean who now campaigns at lightweight after losing his shot at the IBF 140 crown last year versus Lamont Peterson used his speed and scored to the body, eventually debilitating his Dominican opponent with a pair of knockdowns in the third, the second of which that had Reyes on all fours, unable to get up.

After several competitive rounds to start the fight, IBF #1 light-heavyweight Nadjib Mohammedi (38-3 23KO) took control in the fifth and ended things at 2:38 of the sixth against Lee Campbell (8-2 4KO) as he pinned the North Carolina fighter in the corner and didn’t let up until referee Alain Villeneuve stepped in and called a halt to the action. Mohamedi was able to amp it up a bit each round and by the fifth was clearly dominating, negating any attack that Campbell threw back his way. Mohammedi signed with Main Events has been the IBF mandatory and has twice now stepped aside so that stablemate Kovalev can fight bigger fights. (more…)

Bronco Billy takes aim at Shannon Briggs KO record

Last night 50-year old WBC #16 heavyweight contender “Bronco” Billy Wright (47-4, 38 KOs) needed just 75 seconds to destroy Gilberto Matheus Domingos (22-3, 20 KOs) Saturday night at the We Ko Pa Casino in Fort McDowell, Arizona. It was the 325lb Bronco Billy’s 29th first round knockout and it was announced that he is looking to break the heavyweight record for first round knockouts held by Shannon Briggs, which stands at 35.

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to defend my WBC belts (WBC Latin American and FECARBOX) here in the United States as it’s been a long time since I fought here.” said Wright. “Mauricio Sulaiman has been a man of his word, moving me up the rankings as I continue to win fights. Right now I’m at #16, looking to crack the top 15 with this victory. Against Domingos, I wanted to make a statement and end the fight early with a knockout. The plan was to go in and land as many powerful body shots as possible. It worked and I came out on top. I’m going to keep marching up the WBC rankings with the goal getting a big fight against any of top contenders. The problem is, none of these guys want to fight me. I’m ready to take on all comers ahead of me.”

Berto, Lopez, Porter, Bone, Arreola and Harper comment on Spike TV boxing debut

By Miguel Maravilla

In a crossroads matchup between battle tested welterweights, former world champion Andre “The Beast” Berto scored a come-from-behind sixth round TKO over Josesito “Riverside Rocky” Lopez headlining the debut of Premier Boxing Champions on Spike TV from the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. Lopez forged a lead on two of the three scorecards, but it all became academic when Berto dropped him twice in round six. Referee Raul Caiz Jr. stopped the fight very quickly without a count after the second knockdown.

“I thought I did OK tonight,” said Andre Berto, who picked up the WBA interim welterweight title with the win (other WBA world champions in the division are Floyd Mayweather and Keith Thurman). “I was getting in my groove those first couple rounds, and then I realized he couldn’t hurt me. Then I let my hands go…right now I need a real vacation next. I don’t know what’s next just yet. I’m going to relax with my family and then talk to Al Haymon and see what he has in store for me.”

Regarding the stoppage, Berto stated “I mean it looked like he was out of it. I didn’t lose my mind as a fighter, you have to know what you’re doing. This is a guy who beat Victor Ortiz, who handed me my first loss. Josesito is a guy who comes to fight.” (more…)

Vazquez, Washington victorious in walkout bouts

In the first of a pair of walkout bouts following the televised portion of the Spike TV card at the Citizens Business Bank Arena, Ontario, California, heavyweights Gerald Washington and Jason Gavern put on an oddly compelling show, with the undefeated prospect Washington, (16-0, 11 KOs), earning the inevitable victory over shopworn journeyman Gavern, (26-19-4, 11 KOs), by scores of 78-71, 79-70, and 79-70. But in between, the always entertaining Gavern went down three times, jokingly used the referee as a human shield, and punctuated several rounds of sporadic action with Ric Flair’s signature battle cry of “woooo!” By the end of the bout, the youngster Washington got in eight more rounds of experience and Gavern lived to fight, and clown, another day.

In the final bout of the evening, former IBF lightweight Miguel Vasquez (35-4, 13 KOs) won an uneventful unanimous decision over Jerry Belmontes (19-6, 5 KOs) in a ten round lightweight bout. There were no knockdowns in the fight and neither fighter was hurt in the sparring session that passed itself off as a fight. Referees scored the bout 99-91, 98-92 and 99-91, all in favor of Vazquez.

In a clash of undefeated welterweights, Antoine Douglas (17-0-1, 11 KOs) scored an impressive sixth round KO over Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna (16-1, 7 KOs) on Friday night at “The Space at Westbury” in Westbury, NY. Douglas dominated the bout. He was credited with a knockdown in round six that looked like more of a slip. Douglas then scored two more legit knockdowns later in the round and the bout was waved off by referee Harvey Dock. Time was 2:44.

Unbeaten lightweight southpaw Ismael Barroso (17-0-2, 16 KOs) scored a headbutt filled sixth round TKO over Issouf “Volcano” Kinda (17-3, 7 KOs) in a scrap for the NABO title. Accidental head clashes left Barroso with multiple cuts, but he finally dropped Kinda in round five and the bout was halted three seconds into round six.
