Reckless ex-OPBF super-bantam champ, WBC#14 Hiromasa Ohashi (24-9-3, 15 KOs), 121.5, regained the OPBF belt when he barely pounded out a split decision over OPBF#2 Filipino national titlist Jhunriel Ramonal (9-3-1, 6 KOs), 121.75, over twelve hard-fought rounds on Sunday in Kariya, Japan.
Scored: scoring referee Wansoo Yuh (Korea) 117-111 and judge Yuji Fukuchi (Japan) 115-113, both for Ohashi, and Delbert Peligrino (Philippines) 115-114 for Ramonal.
Ohashi, a Vito Antuofermo stylist, found another Antuofermo in Ramonal, and they persistently mixed it up entirely for twelve heats. Ohashi, who had forfeited his regional belt to the current WBA 122-pound champ Akifumi Shimoda a year ago, decked a couple of wins since, and was a prefight favorite against Ramonal due to his superior experience. But the 21-year-old muscular Filipino didn’t care about the difference of their careers and came out fighting toe-to-toe without retreating. After the fourth, the open scoring system indicated 38-38 twice and 40-36 for Ohashi. (more…)

In the main event of an Airtight Boxing card in Sheridan, Colorado, for the vacant WBC super lightweight Latino title, Manny Perez (16-6-1, 4 KOs) of Denver squared off with Randy “Savage” Arrellin (8-4, 4 KOs) of Albuquerque. Perez built an early lead by using superior boxing skills while Arrelin looked to end the fight with one punch. Arellin had success in the fourth round as he was able to land sharp body shots on Perez. Perez rebounded in the fourth as he was able to outhustle Arrellin by using a much higher work rate. Perez turned aggressor in the fifth and bloodied the nose of Arrellin by continuing his body-head attack. The sixth round was an action packed round that had the crowd on its feet. Perez hurt Arrellin early but Arrellin rallied late. In a sudden and surprising ending, Arellin’s corner stopped the fight due to a hand injury sustained by their fighter. The pro-Perez crowd erupted as Perez was announced the winner, with the official TKO stoppage at :01 into the eighth round. (more…)

Takalani Ndlovu (32-6, 18 KOs) dethroned IBF super bantamweight champion Steve Molitor (33-2, 12 KOs) by unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Nasrec Indoor Arena in Johannesburg, South Africa. Scores were 118-110, 118-110, 116-112.
Also IBF flyweight champion Moruti Mthalane (27-2, 18 KOs) stopped Johnriel Casimero (14-2, 8 KOs) in the fifth round to retain his belt for the second time.
Michigan heavyweight Demetrice King says he still hasn’t been paid for his fight last weekend against David Tua. King is due $10,000 for his ten round decision loss to Tua in Manukau, New Zealand. According to the New Zealand Herald, the hangup is a dispute between NYC-based promoter Cedric Kushner and and NZ promoter Inga Tuigamala. King signed a Gotham Boxing contract for the bout so Kushner appears to be on the hook, but Cedric told the Herald he had no financial involvement in the fight and signed King on the instructions of Tuigamala, trusting Tuigamala to take care of King’s purse. Tuigamala, who is Tua’s cousin, says it’s a “contractual issue” between King and Kushner. Meanwhile Demetrice King waits.
Unbeaten WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (18-0, 14 KOs) scored a lackluster twelve round unanimous decision over #10 rated Javier Francisco Maciel (18-2, 12 KOs) on Saturday night at the DIVS Sports Palace in Ekaterinburg, Russia. Pirog didn’t look anything like the fighting machine who dominated Daniel Jacobs in winning the belt last summer. A big shot by Pirog in round four brought the partison crowd to life, but those moments were far and few between. Maciel was able to connect with clean shots at times, but no question Pirog did enough to win. Scores were 115-112, 117-110, 115-111.
Unbeaten Olympian lightweight Alisher Rahimov (22-0, 11 KOs) outpointed Rustam Nugaev (21-6-1, 12 KOs) over twelve by scores of 118-112, 118-113, 116-112. Scores seemed a little too lopsided for the hometown fighter in what was a very competitive affair.
Unbeaten Olympic heavyweight silver medalist Vyacheslav Glazkov (9-0, 6 KOs) busted up and outpointed formerly world ranked Denis Bakhtov (33-6, 22 KOs) over eight rounds. Scores were 80-72 on all cards.
Olympic gold medalist and unbeaten welterweight prospect Felix Diaz (9-0, 6 KOs) stopped previously unbeaten Andrey Berdyshev (5-1, 1 KO) in round three. Diaz dropped Berdyshev with a left hand and the bout was waved off moments later. Time was 1:39.

Guadalajara featherweight Jorge Solis tipped the scale at 133.2 in his second day re-weigh for his challenge at the IBF Featherweight Championship against Yuriorkis Gamboa at The Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. Gamboa did not participate in the mandatory re-weigh and will, in the event he wins tonight’s bout, give up the IBF title which would become vacant.
