Tonight featherweight prospect Guy Robb (11-1, 4 KOs) marched forward with a unanimous decision victory against John Herrera (4-7-1, 2 KOs) at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix, Arizona. From the opening round, Robb controlled the action with pressure while throwing a lot of punches. Herrera was durable but never showed he could hurt Robb with any of his punches. The scorecards read 60-54 across the board. “This was my first fight with Boxing 360 and I’m glad I came out victorious.” said Robb. “My promoter Mario Yagobi says he plans to get me right back in the ring. Once I get back home I’m getting right back to the gym to get ready for the next one. I’m excited about my future.” Boxing 360 promoter Mario Yagobi said, “I was impressed with Guy Robb’s performance tonight. With a few more wins, I’ll be looking to step him up in competition and hopefully fight for a regional title by the end of the year.”

Thompson Boxing Promotions returned to the Inland Empire Friday night for its Path to Glory series at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California.

Sanchez and Contreras battled it out for six rounds as Victor Sanchez pulled the upset. (more…)

Undefeated lightweight Ghislain Maduma (14-0 9KO) won a hard fought 99-91, 97-93, 96-94 unanimous decision over Saul Carreon (20-6-1 13KO) of Mexico as the headline event on the Eye of the Tiger promoted card held at the Lac Leamy Casino in Gatineau Quebec. Both fighters had their moments with Carreon doing damage on more than occasion with a dangerous left hand counter. Maduma definitely had the upper hand but didn’t seem to capitalize enough on the things that were working for him, but he did certainly land enough right hands to carry the evening.
British super-middleweight prospect James DeGale (15-1 9KO) made short work of former world-title challenger and short notice opponent Sebastien Demers (31-6 11KO), landing with just about everything and stopping the Montreal fighter at 1:58 of the 2nd round. 110-percent wasn’t necessarily the effort level from DeGale but more his connect rate as every thrown found the target. Demers stood by like a deer in headlights, nose bloodied, doing his best to answer back but badly out-gunned. DeGale landed a crunching left that backed Demers reeling backwards and taking a knee in the corner where he wisely stayed down for the count of ten. (more…)
