Recently crowned 154-pound champion Jermall Charlo (22-0, 17 KOs), and Errol Spence Jr (18-0, 15 KOs), one of most hotly tipped boxers in any weight class, headline separate bouts when Premier Boxing Champions detonates The Bomb Factory in Dallas in a post-Thanksgiving feast for fight fans tonight on NBC.

Unheralded Japanese speedster Yu Kimura (18-2-1, only 3 KOs), 107.5, astoundingly dethroned highly regarded WBC light-flyweight champ Pedro Guevara (26-2-1, 17 KOs), 108, from Mexico, by a hard-fought but well-received split verdict (115-113 twice for Kimura, 111-117 for Guevara) over twelve heats on Saturday in Sendai, Japan.

In the main event, unbeaten Mexican Carlos Cuadras (34-0-1, 26 KOs), 114.5, barely kept his WBC super-flyweight belt as he had a tough time in later rounds but kept running to maintain his early lead on points, winning a unanimous decision (116-112, 117-111 twice) over elongated game Japanese Koki Eto (17-4-1, 13 KOs), 114.5, over twelve Tom-and-Jerry rounds.

There were no theatrics today at Karstadt, Essen when Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury came together one last time before they step into the ring and fight for the heavyweight world title. Initially refusing to shake Klitschko’s hand as the champion arrived, Fury did show respect after the formalities were over and even had a smile for the man he hopes to defeat in his own back yard tomorrow night.

On the scales, Fury tipped in at a lean 246.4lbs while Klitschko registered 245.3lbs. The challenger is confident of making an upset but it’s a massive task in every sense of the word.

WBC world title twinbill in Japan tomorrow

By Joe Koizumi

Sendai is a beautiful city in northern Japan with a good population of more than a million residents, full of green trees, featuring many sightseeing places including the Aoba (green leaves in Japanese) castle. It is a bit cool in winter, but people here are anticipating hot wars with the WBC belts on the line tomorrow (Saturday). Unbeaten WBC 115-pound champ Carlos Cuadras (33-0-1, 26 KOs), from Mexico, will put his belt on the line against elongated Japanese challenger Koki Eto (17-3-1, 13 KOs) in the main event at the Xebio Arena. The semi-windup will watch another Mexican titlist, Pedro Guevara (26-1-1, 17 KOs) defend his WBC 108-pound title against Japanese speedster Yu Kimura (17-2-1, 3 KOs), ex-national amateur and professional champ.

Today we saw a weigh-in ceremony, where Cuadras and Eto both tipped the beam at 114.5, half a pound lighter than the super-fly limit, while Guevara scales in at the 108-pound light-fly limit to 107.5 for Kimura. (more…)

WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 54 KOs) and unbeaten challenger Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) weighed in for their clash Saturday night in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Klitschko weighed 245.8 lbs. (111.5 kilos), while Fury scaled in at 246.9 lbs. (112 kilos). An intense face-off followed lasting 72 seconds before they were separated. During their face-to-face, Klitschko at 6’6 1/2 looked at least as tall as Fury, who is billed as 6’9.

Fury made his entry first, followed by Wlad, who extended his hand to shake with Fury. Fury refused. Wlad attempted again after the face-off, and this time Fury accepted. Now comes the long-awaited ruled meeting where Fury will try on his custom-made Paffen gloves. The Fury camp is still making rumblings about walking if the gloves aren’t to his liking.

Only media were allowed into today’s weigh-in. The reason given is extra security. The fight takes place at the 54,600-seat Esprit Arena, which will have it’s retractable roof closed and the heat turned on for fans attending the event.

Granite Chin Promotions, in keeping up with their Thanksgiving Eve tradition, kept an audience of nearly 800 entertained with an eight-bout card consisting of four pro fights and four amateur exhibitions at the Teacher’s Union Hall in South Boston, MA.

Nevin, Jimenez win in Hammond, Indiana

Chicago promoter Bobby Hitz wrapped up 2015 with a Thanksgiving eve card at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana, featuring a cadre of local prospects, a 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist, as well as the return of popular local stalwart, Mike “Hollywood” Jimenez. Unfortunately, two bouts were scratched in the eleventh hour and the original opponent for Jimenez, Thomas Awimbono of Ghana , never got off the tarmac in Accra due to visa problems. Regardless, the show went on and at the end of the night most fight fans filed out of “The Venue” and into the rainy night seemingly satisfied with the action that had unfolded.

In the night’s lightweight finale, John Joe Nevin, who took home silver while representing his home country of Ireland in the 2012 London Olympic Games, showed there’s much work to be done after a somewhat sloppy six round decision over twenty-fight Detroit veteran, Greg Coverson Jr. Nevin, technically proficient if not a tad mechanical, never abandoned the jab and as the fight wore on increasingly found a home for his left hooks to the head. In the fourth, however, it was two quick right hands that briefly dropped Coverson for what would be the only knockdown of the fight. The final two rounds had Coverson in survival mode and while he ate several more left hooks from Nevin he was never again in any real trouble. All three judges had it 60-53 across the board for Nevin. (more…)

“I’ll face anyone they want to put in front of me at 154 lbs, unless it’s Canelo (Alvarez) or (Miguel) Cotto. Then we’ll go up to 160 lbs,” proclaimed WBA super welterweight world champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara (22-2-2, 13 KOs) after easily dispatching former world champion Jan Zaveck (35-4, 19 KOs) on a rain-soaked Friday night inside an outdoor ring at Miami’s Hialeah Park Racing & Casino.

Regarding the fight with Zaveck, Lara commented, “I think I handled the pressure well tonight. I stayed in the pocket and fought my fight. This was a great win for me. (Zaveck) is a former champion and he’s never been knocked out until tonight…I hit him with a great shot to the chin and froze his whole body. He was complaining about pain in his ear and his leg, but the bottom line is I got the win.

“I’m very happy to be back fighting in the Miami area. This is my first time fighting back here since 2009 and I’m glad I was able to put on a good show for the fans. I’m very thankful for the way they showed up to support me tonight.”

Nieves impresses in Erie

There was a little bit of everything for the fight fans at the Bayfront Convention Center to be satisfied within the six bout card promoted by Ernie Bizzarro’s Bizzarro Boxing Promotions on Thanksgiving eve. The highly entertaining card had plenty of action, which included upsets, close fights and ended with a quick knockout to end the show. In the main event of the evening, undefeated super bantamweight sensation Antonio “Carita” Nieves (14-0-1, 7KO’s) needed only 2:34 to stop sixty-seven fight veteran Lorenzo “Explosivo” Trejo (35-31-1, 22KO’s) in the scheduled six round main event of the evening. In the four round co-feature, Nicaraguan welterweight Wilfredo “El Zurdo” Acuna (16-18, 12KO’s) shocked formerly undefeated Wilkins “The Hispanic Hurricane” Santiago (12-1-2, 6KO’s), dropping him twice on his way to a well-deserved six round unanimous decision victory.

As top welterweight prospect Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. (18-0, 15KO) gears up for his hometown fight this Saturday at The Bomb Factory in Dallas against the tough and gritty Alejandro Barrera (28-2, 18KO), he can’t help but look to the future and for a potential title fight. “I’ll fight anyone in the top 10. The ranking just came out. I’m ranked in the top ten in all 3 sanctioning bodies, the IBF, WBA and WBC. I’ll fight anybody in the top 10, maybe anybody in the top 15, it doesn’t matter.”

Spence has not been shy about fighting current WBA welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman.

“It’s nothing between me and Keith Thurman, it’s just Keith Thurman said he will fight anybody, nobody wants to fight him, everybody’s ducking him. You know, like he’s a big bad wolf, I’ll come out of the bushes, I’ll fight you. It is what it is.

Lara destroys Zaveck, retains WBA 154lb title

A pouring rain wreaked havoc on an outdoor boxing card Wednesday night at Hialeah Park Racing & Casino in Miami, Florida. After a long delay, WBA super welterweight champion Erislandy Lara (22-2, 13 KOs) and Jan Zaveck (35-4, 19 KOs) entered the ring during a lull in the storm and Lara made quick work of the 39-year-old former IBF welterweight champion. After staggering Zaveck in round two, Lara dealt out more punishment in round three, prompting Zaveck to turn his back. Referee Telis Assimenios waved it off at :41. After the fight, Zaveck said a punch to the neck caused a spasm in his shoulder.

Unbeaten WBA #6, WBC #8 bantamweight Manny “Sensational” Rodriguez (14-0, 10 KOs) scored a dominant seven round TKO over Eliezer Aquino (17-2-1, 11 KOs). Rodriguez dropped Aquino in round three. Aquino was deducted a point in round seven for losing his mouthpiece. The one-sided bout was finally waved off by referee Sam Burgos at 2:44.

Earlier, super welterweight southpaw Daquan Arnett (15-1, 9 KOs) scored a first round KO over former Cuban Olympian Yudel Jhonson (17-3, 9 KOs). Johnson was down twice. Referee James Warring waved it off at 2:47.

Illinois native Adrian Granados (16-4-2, 11 KOs) will take on unbeaten New Yorker and WBC #1 ranked super lightweight Amir Imam (18-0, 15 KOs) this Saturday at the Centre Videotron, in Quebec City, Quebec Canada. It will take place on the undercard of the main event featuring IBF super middleweight champion James DeGale vs hometime favorite and ex-champ Lucian Bute. The Granados-Imam fight will be aired on Showtime Extreme.

It has been quite the ride for Granados the last 6 months or so. He signed with Journeyman Management and immediately saw himself on the undercard of the fight of the millennium between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquaio. He dropped what many felt was a disputed split decision to world ranked Brad Solomon that night.

Year-end world title bouts in Japan

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

Everything comes in three, but our year-end world title promotions repeat for more than three years. WBA 130-pound champ Takashi Uchiyama as well as WBA 112-pound ruler Hiroki Ioka will fight on New Year’s Eve in four consecutive years. Why do our television networks, exactly not our promoters, love to show boxing events in the end of the year? Simply because of getting high TV ratings since people take holidays after the closing of government and industry offices for the year and stay at home to watch television at home box offices. Under recession it might be more economical of time and money to watch TV rather than go out and spend money for gambling or drinking. Housewives also love their husbands to stay at home no matter what they might do rather than go outside for enjoying time of wine and roses. Boxing is interesting enough to attract men to stay at home to kill time during tedious holidays.
