Churchwell comeback begins with win

Former hot prospect Terrance Churchwell (20-1, 13 KOs) of Nashville, Tennessee, defeated journeyman Kevin Carter (11-74-1, 3 KOs) on Saturday night by way of four round unanimous decision on a club show in Johnson City, Tennessee. It was the first time Churchwell had fought in nearly 14 years since retiring from boxing at the age of 24. The 38-year-old Churchwell will continue his comeback and return to training next week with his manager-trainer Ramon Arellano in Nashville. Churchwell has lost more than 70 pounds in the last year getting as low as 160 pounds. He says that the goal is for him to get down to his original fighting weight of 140 pounds in the next few months.

Macklin takes aim at 154lb division

Former middleweight world title challenger Matthew Macklin believes that moving down to super welterweight can turn his world title dreams into reality as he faces Jason Welborn for the vacant WBC International title at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham on Saturday. Macklin has had three world title fights at middleweight. The 32-year-old first thought of the move down to super welterweight following his loss to Jorge Sebastian Heiland in Dublin in November and he has told fight fans that they can expect to see hard-hitting ‘Mack the Knife’ back to his best. Macklin was last down at the 154lb weight for his battle with Jamie Moore back in September 2006.

“I still think I can win a world title,” said Macklin. “After the fight with Heiland I did think maybe I am not what I was. He is a good fighter with a horrible style to fight, but after three rounds of feeling sharp, I just felt that I had no energy in there. I hadn’t been out of the gym all year and at 33, training like that, something has got to give. So I think that I still have plenty to give but it’s just been about changing the way I train a little bit, small adjustments, and I think that I am going to be more imposing at super welterweight and my power will be great.

Kalajdzic annihilates Domingos

Undefeated light heavyweight Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic (20-0, 13 KOs) wasted no time in getting rid of Brazilian power-puncher Gilberto Domingos (24-4, 21 KOs) Saturday evening at the Florida Orange Event Center in Lakeland, Florida. Kalajdzic was on the attack from the opening bell. Kalajdzic connected with quick punches to Domingos’ mid-section, hurting him just seconds into the fight. A visibly hurt Domingos unsuccessfully attempted to move and tighten his guard, finding himself on the canvas courtesy of a stinging combination. Moments later, the popular Saint Petersburg, FL resident unleashed another combination to deck Domingos for a second time, mercifully forcing the stoppage at 1:32 in the first of a scheduled eight rounds.

“He left his body open and I knew if I connected he’d go down,” said Kalajdzic, who moved up to cruiserweight for this fight to accommodate Domingos and is now 20-0 with 13 wins by knockout. “It feels great to fight (close to home) and I would love to keep fighting here. I don’t care who I fight as long as the money is right, but I’ll let (my promoter) Lou DiBella handle that.” (more…)

IBA President Dean Chance passes

Sad to report the death of International Boxing Association (IBA) President Dean Chance at the age of 74 at his home in Ohio. Chance started the IBA in the 1990s. The title was held by many big names including Roy Jones Jr., James Toney, Oscar de la Hoya, Shane Mosley, Butterbean, Mia St. John, Holly Holm and many more. Sometimes the IBA title had major media exposure, such as in the 2000 rematch between Paulie Ayala and Johnny Tapia.

Before getting into boxing, Dean was a major league baseball star. In 1964 he threw a no-hitter, started the All-Star game, won the Cy Young award, won 20 games, had an ERA of 1.65, and tossed 11 complete game shutouts for the Los Angeles Angels. He played for 11 seasons in all.

By Przemek Garczarczyk

More and more, fighters like to use social media for finding opponents in the ring. Sometimes it works. Polish heavyweight Artur Szpilka got his dream fight starting Twitter words exchange with Bryant Jennings. But most of the time, it’s not so easy. Case in point: Another top polish fighter, undefeated middleweight Maciej Sulęcki (21-0, 6 KOs). Sulęcki, whose biggest win came when he defeated former world title challenger Grzegorz Proksa, has since fought twice at Premier Boxing Champions events. Sulęcki quickly knocked out both his opponents and immediately challenged fellow undefeated boxer Hugo Centeno Jr. (23-0, 12 KO).

“I want to fight Centeno for couple of reasons,” said Sulęcki. First of all, in his last fight, he beat my Polish colleague Lukasz Maciec and I want to avenge my buddy, because Centeno was lucky in this bout fighting a man who was traveling back and forth between Poland and US. Then, when I challenged him on Twitter, instead of responding like a man, he decided to block me! (more…)

“That was a cracking performance, I was really pleased with that, maybe I could have done him a bit quicker, but I’m right happy with that,” said WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan (29-0, 12 KOs) after destroying mandatory challenger Diego Magdaleno inside two rounds in his first title defense Saturday night at the Manchester Arena.

“Now people will start standing up and taking notice of me and know that I’m the real thing. Anyone who knows me knows that I’ll fight anyone, anytime. I love boxing and I’m in to prove that I’m the best in the world. I’ve done two of the top Americans in a row now, the more the merrier. I want to defend my title again and then look at unification fights to show just how good I can really be!”

Alvarez finally got the stoppage from referee Guadalupe Garcia with a barrage of punches at 1:52.

A fight between former minimumweight world champion Francisco “Chihuas” Rodriguez and Ronald Ramos didn’t take place when the commission disallowed the fight due to a small cut on Rodriguez’ right eyelid.

Unbeaten super bantamweight KO artist Jonathan Guzman (20-0, 20 KOs) scored a ninth round KO over Danny Aquino (17-1, 10 KOs). Guzman dropped Aquino twice in round two, but the game Aquino hung tough until a ninth round knockdown prompted a referee’s stoppage. Time was 1:19.

New Lee-Saunders date: December 19

Photos: Sumio Yamada

WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee and challenger Billy Joe Saunders will finally collide at the Manchester Arena on December 19th in a Christmas extravaganza. The fighters are raring to get in the ring and decide who is the best after seeing two previous postponements of their fight – Lee with a viral infection and Saunders with a cut eye – and both are promising to close the year with an explosive ending.

Andy Lee: “The delay in the fight between me and Saunders has just made me more determined, if that is possible. Once I have beaten him on the 19th December I can move on in my career and unify the titles. My fans have been very patient and I’ll give them what they have been waiting for as a Christmas present, beating Saunders and remaining world champion. I’m a proud man and I’m prepared to fight ‘tooth and nail’ to keep my title. Saunders is in for the fight of his life.”

Billy Joe Saunders: “Like Lee I just want to get in the ring and fight. We’ve talked and talked for months, now we just want to fight. I gave him the chance to fight for the world against Korobov when I stepped aside so now I want my chance. It’s been a long time coming, but it’s here now and nobody is going to stop me. This isn’t going to be a Merry Christmas for him, more like the Nightmare Before Christmas. We’re both fighting men and one of us isn’t going to be standing at the end, and that won’t be me.” (more…)

Tyson Fury back in training, promises Klitschko “doesn’t know what he’s in for!”

By James Slater

Tyson Fury seems convinced that to beat heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko a fast start out of the blocks will prove essential. Speaking with Sky Sports’ “The Gloves Are Off,” Fury – who is back in serious training, in Ireland, now that his postponed date with Klitschko is back on for November 28th – said, well, lots of things:

“Just expect a wild animal,” he said. “I’ll be a tiger, a lion, a bear, whatever you like. Have I ever shown weakness on big occasions? There’s a lot more from me. I’ve got a lot of stuff up my sleeves. Wladimir doesn’t know what he’s in for.”

Fury sat across from Klitschko as he talked, yet the heavyweight boss seemed to merely smile and be amused at his challenger’s comments. Is Klitschko genuinely laughing at Fury, or is he hiding some real apprehension? Fury certainly seems to believe Klitschko is intimidated by him. (more…)

Magdaleno: I guarantee to bring a lot of excitement, fire, heat and explosiveness

Photo: Chris Farina/Top Rank

WBO world lightweight champion Terry Flanagan might boast the second longest unblemished record in British boxing but, despite home court at Manchester Arena, the oddsmakers are struggling to determine a favourite when the ‘Turbo’ makes his maiden defense against Diego Magdaleno tonight. That’s because the 28-year-old Las Vegan challenger is a proven quality operator; a former US national amateur champion who brings impressive 28-1, 12 KO pro record.

The sole blemish on Magdaleno’s slate was a highly questionable 12 round points reverse in a WBO super-feather tilt against Puerto Rico’s Roman ‘Rocky’ Martinez in Macao two and a half years ago.

“I did what I had to do, clearly outboxed him but that’s all in the past now,” says the polite and amiable Magdaleno who suffered one of three career knockdowns in round four. The ‘loss’ is certainly the fight I’ve learned most from, about what’s needed to succeed at world title level, so maybe it was no bad thing. (more…)

Ghent, Belgium: Laggoune–Kucher ends in split draw

Local star Bilal Laggoune stayed unbeaten when he was awarded a controversial split draw against Ukrainian visitor Dmytro Kucher tonight in the Topsporthal Vlaanderen in Ghent, Belgium. Laggoune did much better than many people expected against the experienced and dangerous puncher Kucher.
Kucher took the initiative from the start chasing cautious Laggoune for the first 4 rounds. Then Laggoune took more and more over in the middle rounds but the visitor found his second breath in the second half of the fight. Laggoune clearly won the 11th but had to give away the last. Kucher looked a comfortable winner despite having shown some ring rust and it seems that he has not the punching power anymore from a couple of years ago. Russian Alexander Kalinkin scored it 118-112 for Kucher, Smail Alitouche from France saw it a draw with 114 each but German Arnold Golger somehow had Laggoune the winner with 115-113. Igor Mazurov from Russia supervised the fight.
The title stays vacant and the EBU will most likely order a rematch.

Sasha Yengoyan scored another inside the distance win but it was much harder than expected. La bestia del Este stopped Fouad El Massoudi by TKO in the 7th. Yengoyan started well winning the first 2 round as the French visitor was very cautious. El Massoudi was closely winning rounds 3, 4 and 5. Yengoyan’s punches missed a lot their target or felt short but he took over again in the 6th to make it level. In the 7th El Massoudi was caught with big left which made him reeling against the ropes. Yengoyan went for the finish and in the follow up barrage of punches the referee waved it off. El Massoudi did not go down and was furious at the stoppage. But he was at that time suddenly taking a lot of punishment without firing back.
On the undercard Ismail Abdoul WUD06 Sylvain Luce, Sebastiaan Steen WUD06 Aurelien Lecocq and Elfi Philips stopped Daniele David by TKO03.

Claude Van den Heede of International boxing event promoted the show which was shown live on Sport 40 and AVS.

Interview: Avni Yildirim

Turkish rising star Avni Yildirim is taking the fast track to the top. Less than two months after winning the WBC Silver International light heavyweight championship by unanimous decision against former world champion Glen Johnson in Miami, the 24-year-old returns to the ring this Sunday (Oct. 11) in Herne, Germany, to defend his title against Bernard Donfack. Fightnews.com® met Yildirim for an exclusive interview.

Avni, you have had quite an impressive year with already five wins in 2015 so far and your next fight just around the corner. How do you feel after this extraordinary level of activity?

I am young and hungry and would fight every other week if I could. My first four wins this year were fast KOs so it wasn’t really hard work. But even after going ten rounds with Glen Johnson in my last fight I still felt great and wanted to fight again as fast as possible. I am lucky, very happy and proud to have a great promoter who gives me the opportunity to fight a lot. (more…)
