Ioka-Kokietgym: Full Report

Report by Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Japanese star Kazuto Ioka (12-0, 8 KOs), 108, impressively decked the first defense of his second world throne when he dispatched Thai veteran Wisanu Kokietgym (43-9-2, 11 KOs), 108, with a wicked body shot at 2:51 of the ninth round on Wednesday in Osaka, Japan. Ioka, still 24, had acquired the WBC 105-pound belt in his seventh pro bout, and won the WBA 108-pound diadem in his eleventh. Ioka was patient against the more experienced Thailander, steadily piling up points before he exploded a very well-timed right uppercut to the midsection, which sent him flat on the canvas for minutes.

Undefeated IBF #3 jr welterweight Dierry “Dougy Style” Jean (25-0, 17 KOs) scored an explosive fourth round TKO over IBF #7 Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis (17-4-1, 6 KOs) on Friday night at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. After suffering a bad cut over his right eye in round three from an unintentional headbutt, Jean dropped Pendarvis with a huge right hand in round four and got the stoppage with his follow up barrage. Time was 2:01. The bout was an elimination bout for the #1 spot in the IBF’s 140-pound division.

“The cut was bad,” said the 31-year-old Jean, who was born in Haiti but has lived in Canada since he was 10. “I couldn’t see anything. But my corner did a great job with it, and then I caught him with a perfect right hand. I was very surprised the referee let it go so long after the first knockdown but I knew I had to keep fighting and finish the job. (more…)

Boxing Result

Paris, Lock victorious in Detroit

Jr welterweight Vernon “The Iceman” Paris (28-1, 16 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Manny “Manos” Perez (19-9-1, 4 KOs) on Friday night at the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan. Perez seemingly outworked Paris, but the hometown favorite prevailed by scores of 97-93, 96-94, 98-92

Featherweight Cornelius “Lighting” Lock (21-6-1, 13 KOs) overcame two knockdowns to win a unanimous decision against “El Negro Mexicano Lightning” Lonnie Smith (14-5-3, 10 KOs). Lock controlled the fight but Smith was credited with knockdowns in round four and five, although both should have been ruled as slips. Smith was deducted a point in round ten for spitting out his mouthpiece. Scores were 97-91, 96-92, 95-92.

Jeter-Correa Fecarbox title bout scrapped in Millersville; rest of card intact

By Gary “Digital” Williams

Fightnews.com has learned that the WBC Fecarbox Middleweight title bout between champion Tony Jeter and Victor Hugo Correa slated for Saturday, May 11 at Club One Fitness in Millersville, MD has been called off. However, the rest of the Jeter Promotions card — including another WBC Fecarbox title bout — will still take place. Jeter Promotions learned late Thursday that something was wrong when Correa didn’t arrive to be picked up at a local airport. Subsequently, Correa sent an email saying he was not coming from Mexico City due to an illness. This was after all the necessary documentation — including medical forms — had already been received. After some last-minute tries to find a replacement, the bout had to be called off.

Where some promoters may have cancelled the card outright, Jeter Promotions told Fightnews that it would not be right to the other boxers on the card to cancel, so the card will go on as scheduled with the bout between Phil Jackson Benson and Maxell Taylor for the vacant WBC Fecarbox Super Middleweight title as the new main event.

Here is the scale watch:

Phil Jackson Benson 165 vs. Maxell Taylor 167
(WBC Fecarbox Supervisor Bismarck Morales holds the title belt)
Dwayne McRae 231.5 vs. Dennis Benson 252
Nick Kisner 217.5 vs. Willie Chisolm 218.5
