Penn ‘better than ever!’

UFC 94 is LIVE on PPV Jan. 31!

Rudy Valentino, head trainer for UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn, has plenty of nice things to say about Georges St-Pierre. He applauds St-Pierre, who will defend his UFC welterweight championship against Penn at UFC 94 on Jan. 31, for his highly skilled striking game and overall athleticism. He even tips his hat to St-Pierre for his win over Penn at UFC 58 in 2006, a fight in which Valentino thinks should have been scored a draw, but was given to the Canadian based on several late takedowns  . . .  Click here for more by Dave Sholler, UFC.com

Pacman-Hitman tickets!

By Nick Giongco

The most expensive ticket to the May 2 brawl between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton will be priced at $1,000, Top Rank big boss Bob Arum told Manila Bulletin and Fightnews on Friday. The fight will be held at the 17,000-capacity MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas but the venue will be reconfigured to seat a little more than 16,000 plus, according to the Harvard-educated lawyer and Hall of Fame promoter. Tickets will go on sale starting Friday, Jan. 30, and not all will be sold to the public since the MGM Properties as well as Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions, which promote the British superstar, will also be given their respective allotments. When Pacquiao faced Oscar De La Hoya last year, only 600 tickets went on sale for the public since the vast majority had been purchased by the promotional outfits and even by the casinos. Arum said he will work hard to increase the number to accommodate more fight fans. Hatton is bringing in hordes of fans from England. Meanwhile, Arum revealed that the Staples Center will hold the biggest number of spectators ever when Mexican ironman Antonio Margarito defends the world welter crown against the dazzling Shane Mosley tonight.

Zuniga tops Stanislavjevic!

By Salazar Francisco at ringside

Super Middleweight gatekeeper Fernando Zuniga won a lopsided eight round unanimous decision over veteran Danny Stanislavjevic at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, CA. Zuniga looked rusty from the outset of the fight and was cut across his left eye in the second round. However, Zuniga (28-9, 20 KOs) found his rhythm and wore down the game Stanislavjevic (8-15-3, 4 KOs). All three judges scored the bout 80-72 in favor of Zuniga.
———-
Also featherweight Jesus Hernandez (8-0, 2 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Manuel Sarabia. Hernandez was the busier and more accurate fighter throughout the fight. Sarabia (16-28-9, 10 KOs) had his moments in the latter half of the fight, but could not overcome Hernandez’ cleaner and more effective punches. All three judges scored the bout 60-54 in favor of Hernandez. All Star Boxing Promotions presented the seven-bout “Battle of the Rising Stars” card.

Holm decisions Lamare

Results by Chris Cozzone

Tonight at Isleta Resort & Casino in Albuquerque, N.M.: In what was her most exciting performance to date, Albuquerque’s Holly Holm (23-1-3, 6 KOs) outboxed–but did not outslug France’s Myriam Lamare (16-3, 9 KOs) over ten rounds to retain her WIBA welterweight belt. Holm built up an early lead, landing crisp rights on her foe, but Lamare came alive in the late rounds, bombing Holm with big rights and looping lefts. The scorecards read 96-94, 98-92 and 97-93 for Holm. Fightnews had it 96-94 for Holm. In the scheduled eight-round co-main, Bloomfield jr. middle Joe “Ironman” Gomez (16-1-1, 8 KOs) stopped Jose Luis Cruz (12-15-3, 4 KOs), of San Diego, Calif., at 2:35 of round four. On the undercard: In a battle of debuting super bantams,Raymond “Hollywood” Montes (1-0, 1 KO) stopped Randy “Savage” Arrellin (0-1) at 2:09 of round one; in a slugfest, jr. middle Carlos “El Gallo” Sanchez (2-0) won a unanimous decision over debuting Mike Rodriguez (0-1) with scores of 40-36 twice and 39-37; welterweight Josh “Pitbull” Torres (3-1, 2 KOs) was impressive in his fourth round (1:11) stoppage of El Paso’s Cornelius “Hard Times” Shuler (1-4). Look for a full report tomorrow!

Mabuza wins in one!

By Ron Jackson

In a completely one-sided affair Kaizer Mabuza stopped Mzukisi Mgidi at 2 minutes 59 seconds of the first round to retain his SA junior welterweight title at the Orient Theatre in East London on Friday night. Making his first defense, the 27-year-old Mabuza (63.20kg) stunned Mgidi (63.20kg) early in the fight with a left hook which set the pattern for the rest of the fight. The taller Mgidi, 27, with a reported record 17-4-2; 12 never threw a punch in anger other than a few left jabs which fell short and he had no answer to the left hooks coming in from the champion.

Jimenez beats Montes again!

Mexican national flyweight champion Jesus “El Zurdo” Jimenez (21-5, 13 KOs) of Guadalajara scored a four round beatdown of late sub Salvador Montes (15-6-1, 14 KOs) on Friday night at the beautiful Foro Scotia Bank at Colonia Polanco in Mexico City. The bout was waved off by referee Gabriel Peralta with 18 seconds left in round four as Jimenez punished Montes on the ropes. Jimenez was originally slated to face Alejandro “Payasito” Hernandez, but Hernandez backed out on Tuesday. The result was probably no surprise for Jimenez, who had previously KO’d Montes twice before.
