The Dallas Event Center at the Texas Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas featured a sold-out crowd who came to see if rising featherweight Diego Magdaleno would take home the vacant NABF super featherweight championship. Magdaleno would not disappoint the raucous hometown crowd of 1505 in one of his most impressive performances to date. One of Top Rank’s fast rising stars captured the title and again showcased a more punishing demeanor as he earned a resounding fifth round TKO victory and claimed the title while improving to 18-0 with his 6th knockout . . .

Holyfield-Williams Post Fight Quotes

Evander Holyfield: “I’m very disappointed. He fought the way he should have. He understood he would have his head low when he threw the overhand right. If I didn’t move back, we’d clash heads. It was to his advantage to get lower because he’s short. Being that short he had to fight that fight. He didn’t have to, he chose to.”

“Stuff like this happens and I’ll shake it off. Hopefully, I’ll get this stitched up and it won’t be a problem. Life goes on, it’s part of boxing.”

Sherman Williams: “I’ve had my own personal setbacks. To get over what I did was a miracle. I trained hard for this fight. I was fighting a legend and I can’t take anything away from him. I feel like I should have won by TKO. I cut him with an overhand right, but I respect him.”

“I root for him. He’s almost 50 and still training and performing. I admire what he’s done but it’s time to let younger guys fight and older guys do television commentary. He’s not as good looking as I am. You’ve made sacrifices, won 4 world championships and fought in the Olympics. But this is a new time, a new era. Mr. Holyfield shouldn’t be taking punches from younger guys. That’s how I feel. It’s time for him to move on but, if he wants, we can do it again.”

“After the first round he was falling into my trap. When he felt I was in retreat…bang with the overhand right, and that’s when I saw blood.”

Guillard destroys Dunham

Results by Anthony Springer Jr.

In the night’s main event, Melvin Guillard took a step closer to the lightweight title in a dominant first round victory over Evan Dunham. “The Young Assassin” needed just 2:58 to put on a striking clinic punctuated by two big knees that found a home on the up and comer’s face. The referee rushed in to halt the bout as Dunham slumped over.

Matt Mitrione made his Octagon record 4-0, thrashing Tim Hague en route to a first round TKO win. A straight left put “The Thrashing Machine” on his back and a series of right hands sealed the deal. (more…)

Holyfield/Williams Quick Quotes

Evander Holyfield: “I’m cut. He head-butted me. He came down on me with his head. I don’t know about my next fight (March 5 vs. Brian Nielson in Denmark). I’m cut, I’m cut. I’ll give Sherman a rematch.”

Sherman Williams: “I’m back. This fight was a circus, on again, off again. But I stayed focused. I hurt him with an overhand punch. Let’s bring this fight to Atlantis – Holyfield-Williams II. I’ll take his place in Denmark and fight Nielson.”

By Gabriel F. Cordero at ringside

10,000+ were on hand at the Estadio Olimpico Neza 86 in Mexico City on Saturday night to see HG Boxing’s “4 Coronas” card featuring four world title fights. Most notably, Mexican Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz won the WBA Interim bantamweight title with a technical majority decision over Nicaraguan Alvaro Perez. The bout was stopped at the end of round nine due to head clashes. Scores were Russell Mora (U.S.) 87-83 to Ruiz, Pasquale Procopio (Canada) 86-84 to Ruiz and Carlos Sucre (Venezuela) 86-86. Referee Mark Nelson dieducted a point from Perez in the ninth round.

Holyfield-Williams no decision

Cut could affect Holyfield-Nielsen fight

Legendary heavyweight world champion Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield (43-10-2, 28 KOs) and Sherman “Tank” Williams (34-11, 19 KOs) ended in a three round no-contest on Saturday night at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. The 48-year-old Holyfield was cut over the left eye in round two by an unintentional headbutt and rocked by a Williams right hand in round three. After the round Evander said he couldn’t see and the bout was declared a no contest. The cut could very well jeopardize Evander’s scheduled March 5 fight against Brian Nielsen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In the co-feature, former heavyweight title challenger Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (24-1-1, 10 KOs), who took the bout on short notice, won an eight round unanimous decision over 300lb, seven-footer Julius Long (15-15, 13 KOs). Johnson dropped Long twice in round eight. Scores were 79-71 on all cards.

Former heavyweight title challenger Monte Barrett (34-9-2, 20 KOs) and journeyman Charles Davis (19-21-3, 4 KOs) fought to an eight round majority draw. Scores were 77-75 Davis, 76-76, 76-76.

In an impressive display of brute power Cedric “The Boz” Boswell (32-1, 25 KOs) continued to roll stopping Dominique “Diamond” Alexander (19-10, 9 KOs) in the second round after knocking down his opponent three times with hard left hooks to the body. (more…)

Unbeaten super featherweight Diego Magdaleno (18-0, 6 KOs) Marcos Leonardo Jimenez (18-3, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the Texas Station Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. Magdaleno dropped Jimenez with a body shot in round one and dominated the fight. Jimenez was almost stopped in round five and the bout was halted between rounds. With the win, Magdaleno claimed the vacant NABF championship.

In his U.S. debut, unbeaten Brazilian heavyweight Julio Cesar Dos Santos (14-0, 13 KOs) was credited with a TKO when Valente Tinajero (8-4, 4 KOs) wouldn’t come out for round six.

Unbeaten featherweight Roberto Marroquin (18-0, 14 KOs) impressively KO’d Eduardo Arcos (17-3, 14 KOs) in round four. Marroquin dropped Arcos with a big left hand, then finished him with another left moments later. Time was 1:21.

Highly touted featherweight Jesse Magdaleno (2-0, 2 KOs) TKO’d out Cain Garcia (0-2) in round three. Jesse fired a hard right hook which sent Garcia flying into the ropes – he touched down, tried to continue but fight was called off – spectacular performance. Time was 2:14. Jesse, whose brother Diego is featured in the headliner, was a major amateur star. (more…)

Erik Morales Speaks

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican boxing legend Erik Morales has commented on a proposed April fight against Juan Manuel Marquez, which Marquez appears to have rejected:

“My compatriot Juan Manuel Marquez is deciding if he’ll fight me or not because I made proposals to Amir Khan and Andre Berto, two current world champions and perhaps they’ll offer more money to fight me. But I’m going to fight in April or on a date close to that in Las Vegas against a good fighter, the best available. I won’t lose any sleep, much less my dreams over a single fighter. He thinks he’s GIVING me an opportunity, but really he’s GETTING an opportunity to see a full arena, because in his last fight he got less than 5,000 people, whereas I always did very well thanks to my fans’ support, thank God.

“Finally if Zanfer Promotions is talking in his ear, I can say from experience not to believe everything you hear. He doesn’t realize that all Zanfer wants is to use him so that I can’t fight for a title again because they’re pissed that I’m not working with them.

“I thank my friends for their support and I’ll tell you know who I’ll fight against soon.”
