Pitalua wins in Mexicali

Hard punching veteran Antonio Pitalua, 42, looked in excellent condition as he stopped local prospect Alvaro “Tyson” Robles in the 8th round to capture the vacant WBC FECARBOX Title in front of the hostile local crowd at the Mexicali Gymnasium. Pitalua dominated the action dropping Robles twice in round 2, once in the 3rd, twice in the 4th and finally once in the 8th when the referee decided that it was enough. Pitalua raised his record to 53-6-1-47 KOs while the younger Robles dropped to 13-2-11 KOs. (more…)

Shocker: Campbell stuns Cayo

By Robert Coster
Photos: Martin Avila Maria

“Old warriors never die” the saying goes and it was certainly true Saturday night for former world champion Nate Campbell as he pulled out an upset ninth round TKO victory over local favorite IBF #6 jr welterweight Victor “Mermelade” Cayo in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Campbell (35-9-1, 26 KOs), a battle-scarred 40-year-old who had lost four of his last five fights, was considered a fairly safe opponent for Cayo (27-3, 19 KOs) and it certainly appeared to be so in the first four rounds with the young Dominican playing torreador to Campbell’s bull. The old, self-styled “Galaxy Warrior” was constantly being beaten to the punch by Cayo and it even seemed that referee Roberto Ramirez might even stop the fight. Then, in the fifth round, occured the dramatic turnabout. One of Campbell’s wild, desperate looping right hands landed flush on Cayo’s jaw. Victor fell to the mat with such force that it looked like he might not get up but he did. A suddenly fired-up Campbell went for the kill and the local fighter was again knocked down. Cayo miraculously survived the round but the rounds that followed were pure hell, as Nate just poured it on, punishing the Dominican boxer with body shots, uppercuts and his trademark looping rights. A succesion of punches left Cayo completely dazed on his feet in the ninth round and referee Ramirez wisely decided to call off the carnage. A real stunner. For more details and photos click here…

Mathebula wins IBF junior feather belt

By Ron Jackson

Jeffrey Mathebula beat Takalani Ndlovu on a 12 round split decision to win the IBF junior featherweight belt at the Carnival City Casino near Brakpan on Saturday night. However, the fight was closer than the scorecards handed in by judges Neville Hotz and Jaap van Nieuwenhuizen who had it 117-112 and 116-112 for Mathebula. Judge Alfred Buqwana scored it 115-113 for Ndlovu.

Ndlovo (55.18kg) made a good start, scoring with stinging lefts and rights to the head though rounds one to five and could have been three points ahead at the end of round six. However, from round seven Mathebula (55.32kg) picked up the pace to land with flurries of punches from the outside as he used his longer reach to advantage. As Mathebula picked up his work rate the champion began to tire and he clearly won the last three rounds to grab the belt after the disputed decision in their first fight. Ndlovu, was making the second defence of his belt as he saw his record drop to 33-7, including 18 knockouts. Mathebula, a former Olympian, improved his record to 26-3-2, 14 KOs. (more…)

Marquez defeats late sub Mepranum

WBA flyweight champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez (33-2, 25 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over late, late replacement Richie Mepranum (25-3-1, 5 KOs) in a non-title bout on Saturday night at the Centro de Usos Multiples in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico. In what seemed like a real life telenovela, after original opponent Rodel Mayol pulled out on short notice, Marquez was set to face Mepranum, then Juan Francisco “El Gallo” Estrada, and finally Mepranum again in a matter of hours. It was an interesting matchup as Mepranum had previously handed Marquez his first pro defeat by unanimous decision 24 months ago, but this time “Tyson” gained his revenge by knocking down Mepranum in rounds two and seven en route to a ten round 95-93, 96-92, 97-91 win.

“I was very disappointed in the out of control attitude of Mayol,” Marquez said afterward, “but it allowed me to avenge my first defeat that I had against Mepranum in 2010. I am very sorry about what Mayol did. Nobody deserves that attitude. The WBA supervisor endorsed my weight and he [Mayol] had a responsibility to be a professional and face me, but fortunately we were able to keep our promise to the fans. I hurt my right hand in the fifth round, but we got the victory.” (more…)

Unbeaten Danny Garcia (23-0, 14 KOs) claimed the vacant WBC super lightweight world title with a twelve round unanimous decision over four-division world champion Erik Morales (52-8, 36 KOs) on Saturday night at the Reliant Arena in Houston, Texas. Garcia outworked Morales over the second half of the fight knocking down him down with a left hook in the eleventh to win by scores of 117-110, 116-112, 118-109. Morales lost the WBC super lightweight world title on the scale Friday.

Super welterweight James Kirkland (31-1, 27 KOs) won by tenth round disqualification over Carlos Molina (19-5-2, 6 KOs). Kirkland dropped Molina in the tenth and Molina’s corner entered the ring thus prompting referee Jon Schorle to DQ Molina. At the time of the DQ Molina was up 88-83, 87-84 on two cards. Kirkland was up 86-85 on the third card. (more…)

Former two-division world champion Zab Judah (42-7, 29 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over previously unbeaten Vernon Paris (26-1, 15 KOs) on Saturday night at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, New York. Time was 2:27. Judah was too fast and too powerful as he dominated the fight, which was an IBF jr welterweight eliminator.

Former WBC light heavyweight and IBF cruiserweight champion Tomasz “Goral” Adamek (45-2, 28 KOs) successfully returned to the ring in his first bout since challenging Vitali Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight title, winning a ten round unanimous decision over Nagy Aguilera (17-7, 12 KOs). Scores were 100-90 (2x) and 99-91.

Philadelphia’s Bryant Jennings (13-0, 6 KOs) impressively took apart former world champion Sergei “The White Wolf” Liakhovich (25-5, 16 KOs) by technical knockout after 9 completed rounds. In only his 13th pro fight, Jennings, 219 ½, displayed superior hand speed and technique to rattle and bloody Liakhovich, 231, throughout the fight with powerful combinations. Referee Eddie Claudio stopped the bout on the recommendation of the ringside doctor after Liakhovich took yet another shellacking in round nine. (more…)

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Australian super middleweight champion Omar Shaick 10-2, 6 KOs) retained the title with a shutout ten round decision over Australian-based Nigerian Friday Nwaiwu (3-3) at the Mansfield Tavern, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia on Friday.

Nwaiwu connected with a solid straight left to the head of Shaick in round eight that split the champion’s nose. Scores 100-89, 100-89, 100-88. World class Sakio Bika and Les Sherrington are top contenders for Shaick’s national title. (more…)

Wach KOs Fields in sixth round

By Rick Scharmberg and Kurt Wolfheimer at ringside

In a clash of 6’8 heavyweights, unbeaten Mariusz Wach (27-0, 15 KOs) showed he’s a force to be reckoned with after scoring a sixth round KO over Tye Fields (49-5, 44 KOs) on Saturday afternoon at the Resorts Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. Wach sent Fields crashing to the canvas at 1:44 with a series of right hands to end it. Good give-and-take action up to that point.

Unbeaten and highly regarded heavyweight prospect Artur Szpilka (10-0, 8 KOs) destroyed Terrance Marbra (6-2, 5 KOs) in the first round. After Szpilka dropped Mabra with a straight left, he got him out of there with his follow up barrage. Time was 2:46.

Former Olympian Jerson Ravelo (21-5, 12 KOs) surprised Joey “The KO Kid” Spina (26-2-2, 18 KOs), taking an eight round split decision in a light heavyweight clash. Scores were 79-73, 77-75 for Ravelo, 77-75 for Spina.

Cruiserweight Stivens Bujaj (7-0, 5 KOs) scored a second round TKO over Joshua Harris (8-6-2, 6 KOs). Bujaj dropped Harris in round two and the bout was waved off at 1:49.

Mrdjenovich scores 1st round TKO

Obviously the third time is a charm for Jelena Mrdjenovich.

Mrdjenovich had lost pair of close decisions to the visiting fighter in the past, dropping a split decision on home turf in 2010 and then reliving the disappointment again last year with a majority decision loss in Barrie Ontario.

Magdaleno floored Beltran in the seventh and Beltran’s corner threw in the towel shortly after. Time was 2:28.

In an entertaining clash of undefeated junior welterweights, Johnny Garcia (12-0, 8 KOs) won an eight round split decision over former international amateur standout and 2008 Cuban Olympic Bronze Medalist Yordenis Ugas (11-1, 5 KOs).
