Boxing Result

Trout leaves no doubt, takes apart LoPorto

Undefeated WBA junior middleweight champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (24-0, 14 KOs) scored a sixth round stoppage against #14-rated contender Frank LoPorto (15-5, 7 KOs) on Friday night at Cohen Stadium in El Paso, Texas. It looked like it would be a short night for Trout when he dropped LoPorto early in round one. LoPorto showed a world class chin if not world class boxing skills, as Trout landed almost at will. The slaughter was finally stopped by referee Rafael Ramos. Time was 2:32.

Unbeaten Brazilian middleweight star Michael Oliveira (16-0, 13 KOs) dealt an eight round beating to Xavier “X-Man” Toliver (23-8, 15 KOs). Toliver came out aggressively, but Oliveira took command from round two. Toliver was deducted a point for a head butt in round five and disqualified for hitting on the break in round eight. The result was later announced as a TKO with a time of 1:31.

Boxing Result

Magdaleno shuts out Lucero; Gesta wins too

By Andreas Hale at ringside
Photo: Chria Farina/Top Rank

Hot prospect Diego Magdaleno (21-0) capped off an impressive 2011 with yet another mark in the win column as he soundly thumped Emmanuel Lucero (26-8-1) for ten rounds en route to an easy unanimous decision victory as he retained is NABF super featherweight title at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV. Magdaleno’s increasingly improving boxing pedigree was simply too much for the game Lucero to handle as Magdaleno repeatedly popped the jab while ripping Lucero’s torso with body shots.

Figuring that trying to outbox Magdaleno was futile, Lucero instead launched haymakers in hope that something would land and slow down the Las Vegan. A straight left hand rattled Lucero in the 5th and Magdaleno turned up the heat and applied pressure. Clearly committed to score a knockout, Magdaleno sat on his punches and had little regard for what was coming back at him. A combination sent Lucero stumbling into the ropes and prompted a count from referee Robert Byrd. Lucero attempted to psyche himself out as he barked “Come on!” to Magdeleno. Magdaleno obliged and tore into Lucero with combinations and body punches. It was a great display of guts by Lucero but in the end he found himself on the wrong side of the scorecards as judges saw it 100-89, 100-87 and 100-88. (more…)

Adamek returns for mini-camp; says he’ll be back with a vengeance

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Tomasz Adamek, who lost his first chance to become heavyweight champion when he was defeated on September 10 by WBC titleholder Vitali Klitschko in Wroclaw, Poland, is training again. “I’m back training,” said Adamek in a Fightnews.com exclusive look into his training camp. “First step – working on some technical stuff with Roger Bloodworth, this time not in my US hometown Jersey City, but on Roger’s turf, near St. Louis. Next year, with Roger’s help, I’ll be back with a vengeance.” (more…)

Solomon speaks out

By Phil Doherty

It takes a lot to rile soft-spoken #1-ranked WBA welterweight title challenger Brad “King” Solomon (17-0, 7 KOs). Perhaps this comes from his country upbringing in rural Louisiana. Maybe it comes from the hard-earned wisdom gained in a 4 ½-year prison stint when he was a younger, more careless man. It could be the fact he now lives his life for his two children, son Brylon and daughter Brylie. Yet when the 28-year-old world challenger read reports leaked to Fightnews.com earlier today by his former promoter, he spoke out in a clear, fiery voice. Brad’s friends and family, including his numerous boxing associates knew something rang false with the characterization. (more…)

Fast rising jr welterweight contender Mike “303” Alvarado (31-0, 22 KOs) battles Colombian power puncher Bredis “Khanqueror” Prescott (24-3, 19 KOs) on the televised undercard of Saturday’s Pacquiao vs. Marquez III extravaganza in Las Vegas. Manager Henry Delgado and Top Rank know that the unbeaten Alvarado needs an impressive victory over a recognized contender to fast-track a shot at a world title, which is the reason that Bredis Prescott was chosen as an opponent. Prescott, who is best known for his first round knockout over current WBA and IBF jr welterweight champion Amir Khan, represents a known fighter whose only losses have been decision losses to top contenders.

On November 26th WBC Silver welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin and Canada based Romanian Ionut “Jo Jo Dan” Ion square off in Trabzon (Turkey) in a rematch of their 2010 title fight.

The winner will be mandatory challenger for WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. #1 rated Devon Alexander will also watch the fight closely after he had already called out Aydin to a possible fight in the USA in January or February.

Angkotta seeks revenge in Mexico

By Jeff Pamungkas

#4 WBO bantamweight contender Angky Angkotta of Indonesia considers his loss to Jorge Arce on January 30, 2010 at Restaurante Arroyo in Mexico City to be controversial. “I abosorbed his strong punches, and he got exhausted in round seven, then he did the headbutt on purpose. I was injured on the temple, and the referee asked me to continue the bout, but the ring doctor insisted the referee to stop the fight,” Angkotta recalled from their first match which Arce won by technical decision. “I talked to Arce about a rematch, and he nodded. This is it!”

The Arce vs Angkotta rematch will take place in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico, on November 26 for Arce’s WBO bantamweight title. “I will knock him out this time, and the bomb will explode in Mexico,” promised Angkotta, who is nicknamed ‘Time Bomb.’ “I will bring the WBO belt home for my daughter’s (Chilla) birthday this month. I will also present it as a Christmas and New Year’s gift for my country.” (more…)
