Williams punished, but gets win

By Kurt Wolheimer and Rick Scharmberg at ringside
Photos: Emily Harney

Rebounding from his KO loss to Sergio Martinez, Paul “The Punisher” Williams (40-2, 27 KOs) was looking to make statement against previously unbeaten Erislandy Lara (15-1-1, 10 KOs) on Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. He didn’t make the statement he wanted as the much shorter Lara seemed to dominate the fight, but Williams came away with a very controversial majority decision. Lara repeatedly landed clean Martinez-style overhand lefts and turned Williams’face into a bloody mess at the end. Scores were 114-114, 115-114, 116-114. more + photos

Shimoda to make history

By Joe Koizumi

WBA super-bantam champ Akifumi Shimoda, a Japanese southpaw speedster, will defend his newly acquired belt against unbeaten top contender Rico Ramos in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday, and he is the very first Japanese world champ that puts his belt on the line in the US mainland. Previously did Kuniaki Shibata, WBA 130-pound ruler, face ex-champ Ben Villaflor in a rematch in Honolulu only to be dethroned via first round knockout in 1973. Since then there have been no Japanese world champs that attempted to put the belts at stake in the US since Japan itself is a good market for smaller champs. Should Shimoda be victorious, he will make a hero’s return to Japan. Gambatte (Good luck in Japanese).

Golez, a Filipino fighter from Mindanao island, dominated in the first five rounds with his efficient left hooks punctuated by vicious body attack. Although the Thai fighter did well from round six, it seemed that he was little by little exhausted from the Filipino’s bodyshots. Finally, the show was ended in round ten when Golez landed a big left body shot which dropped the now former champion, then the one-sided attack floored the Thailander two more times, forcing referee Tanawat Wongsasan to stop the action at 1:04.

In others action, WBA #7 light fly Nethra Sasiprapa (26-1,12KOs) destroyed Indonesian Louis Loemoli with a vicious right hook, scoring a KO at 2:12 of round two. WBC #23 superfly Petchbanborn Sor Tanapinyo (reportedly 11-5-1,5KOs) mostly controlled the show with his superior skills before he easily won a six round unanimous decision over Indonesian Alex Buckie (reportedly 12-23-6).

More on Rivera comeback

After winning close to 40 fights in 15 years and capturing three world titles, Jose Antonio Rivera suddenly reached a point in his career he never thought he’d see three decades ago when he first put on a pair of gloves at 8 years old. “Boxing wasn’t fun anymore,” said the former three-time world champion from Worcester, Mass.

Weighed down by personal problems outside of the ring, Rivera hit the wall in 2007 when he lost his WBA light middleweight title to Travis Simms. He announced his retirement shortly thereafter, only to attempt a brief comeback 10 months later that left him with an injured hand. This time, it appeared Rivera (40-6-1, 24 KOs) was done for good, but the former welterweight and light middleweight title-holder proved you can’t keep a champion down for long, making his second comeback in May with a unanimous decision win over Luis Maysonet at the Palladium in Worcester.

Only three months removed from his 38th birthday, Rivera now has his sights set on a much bigger prize as he prepares to continue his comeback Friday, July 29th, 2011 on the undercard of Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports’ “Heat Wave” show at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

Mendy poised for Bute

By talking to Jean-Paul Mendy (IBF #1), and seeing the confidence he possesses, you’d almost think that he was the champion defending his title on Saturday night, rather than the other way around. Few fighters, in his position would be able to possess such a calm and collective demeanor, but for Mendy his fight against IBF Super Middleweight titleist, Lucian Bute, in Bute’s home country of Romania, seems to be just another day in office. Mendy challenges Bute this Saturday night at the Romexpo in Bucharest, Romania. “Training camp was very good, I worked very hard for this fight, and I am ready to go Saturday night,” stated Mendy.

While Bute is considered by many to be the top super middleweight, and one of the top pound for pound fighters in the world, Mendy says he doesn’t see anything in particular that overly impresses him. (more…)
