Tajbert title defense set

WBC super featherweight champion Vitali Tajbert (20-1, 6 KOs) will defend his world title for the second time on November 26 in Nagoya, Japan. Tajbert will face former world champion and current #2 in the WBC rankings, Takahiro Aoh (19-2-1, 9 KOs). It is Tajbert’s first professional fight outside Germany. “This is my biggest challenge,” says Tajbert. “I also had some other options, but with a fight against the current number two of the association, especially a former world champion, I think I gain the highest reputation. In Asia the smaller weight classes get higher emphasis than the heavyweights here in Europe. So I would like to win over the Asian fans with my fighting skills and inspire them. To me, it’s always important to make the audience happy. I box for them.”

Georges beats Tyner

Upset in Motown

By Lindy Lindell
Photos by Bob Ryder

Billed as the rematch of the 1812 War between Canada (actually England) and the U.S., Canadian Andres Georges scored a well-deserved split verdict win in an eight over the much more experienced Lanardo Tyner, now (24-4). Windsorite Georges (10-1) used height, speed and crafty boxing techniques to thwart Detroit-area favorite Tyner, who lost for the first time in front of his 313-area code partisans. Moments after the decision was announced, one of Tyner’s backers yelled, “Straight up: Tyner was robbed!” The only robbery committed was that Georges was deprived of a unanimous decision win. The eyes of this journalist saw an easy win for Georges and had him sweeping the first seven of the eight rounds. The fight was for the NABA US welterweight championship.

Garcia, Geles win WBO titles

By David Finger at ringside

Two vacant WBO interim title belts were on the line Saturday night at the Centro de Convenciones in Cartagena, Colombia.

In the main event, for the vacant WBO interim minimumweight belt, former IBF minimumweight champion Raul Garcia (29-1-1, 17 KOs) and claimed his second world title with a twelve round split decision over previously unbeaten Luis De la Rosa (14-1-1, 8 KOs). Both fighters gave everything in a battle of attrition that Garcia won by the slimmest of margins. Scores were 114-113, 114-113 for Garcia and 115-112 for De La Rosa.

Also, in a bout for the WBO interim light flyweight title, Jesus Geles (11-1-1, 5 KOs) edged Omar Soto (15-6-1, 6 KOs) over twelve rounds. Geles started out strong but Soto didn’t make it easy. In the second round, Soto was cut over his left eye and Gelez tried unsuccessfully to finish him. Although, Geles was technically the better boxer, Soto’s style of wide swinging shots paid dividends as he connected to the head and body of Geles. Good two-way action throughout as judges scored it 114-114, and 115-113, 115-113 for Geles.

Ross decisions Handy

By Ryan Stead, FightNews Canada

Former Cruiserweight title challenger Troy Ross made his homecoming a successful one tonight, pounding out a lopsided 10 round unanimous decision victory over Carl Handy at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario. Ross was almost perfect this night, winning all 10 rounds on two scorecards and 9 on the third (100-90, 100-90, and 99-91). Dominating this one from the start, Ross had Handy reeling early and often. Whether it was the right hook – left uppercut combination or the left hooks to the body, Handy used every trick in the book to remain upright to the end. Ross with the victory improves to 24-2 (16KOs). He remains in contention for a rematch with IBF champion Steve Cunningham to clear up some unfinished business. Handy keeps his reputation as a tough journeyman, slips to 24-8-2. (more…)

Sauerland Event

By Karl Freitag

In one of his most impressive performances, IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester (34-3-1, 16 KOs) successfully defended his title for the third time with a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over #10 rated Mahir Oral (28-3-2, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Stadthalle in Rostock, Germany. Sylvester suffered a vertical cut over the right eye from a headbutt in round two, but he broke it open with a huge round four battering Oral around the ring with a sustained barrage of punches. Oral weathered the storm, but things didn’t get much better for him after that. Oral was dropped in round eight with some body shots and a left hook to the jaw. “The Hurrikan” put Oral down again in round nine and punished him further in the tenth. The champion scored another knockdown in round eleven, but Oral beat the count again and chose to continue and made it to the final bell. Scores were 117-107, 119-106, 117-107. (more…)
