Shimizu, Serie keep belts

Boxing Beat

By Joe Koizumi

WBA#7/WBC#8 flyweight Tomonobu Shimizu (17-3-1, 8 KOs), 112, kept his national 112-pound belt as he finely outboxed and outpunched crouching and onrushing challenger Kewpie Kanazawa (13-7, 6 KOs), 112, and finally halted him with a towel thrown in by the corner at 0:36 of the sixth round on Monday. Shimizu, an upright stylist, made good use of his footwork and countering rights to the face and the belly, effectively weakening the overmatched challenger. The fifth saw Shimizu come out mixing it up in the close quarter and badly hurt Kanazawa with solid combinations. A towel was fluttering midway in the fatal sixth, as the loser’s corner thought Kanazawa had absorbed too much punishment.

Boxing Beat

WBA#6/WBC#12 super-bantam Masaaki Serie (17-3, 7 KOs), 121.5, was awkward, unorthodox and least technical, as usual, but retained his Japanese 122-pound belt with a well-received surrender of ex-world challenger and ex-OPBF/Japanese champ Manabu Fukushima (36-11-4, 20 KOs), 122, after the seventh round in a scheduled ten. Fukushima, 35 and eight years his senior, was just a shell of his old self when he had an unsuccessful shot at the WBC belt against Oscar Larios via eighth round stoppage in 2002. His timing and sharpness were miserably gone. Fukushima took a solid direct right of the younger champ, hitting the deck in the fourth. Serie, in round seven, accelerated his attack and forced the fading veteran to the ropes with a fusillade of wild and strong shots with Fukushima having a narrow escape. Susumu Hanagata, ex-world flyweight champ, decided not to allow the loser to go and fight for the eighth. Fukushima, after a sad swan song, declared a farewell to the ring after his bad defeat.
Promoter: Kaneko Promotions.

Shimoda keeps OPBF 122lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

WBC#3/WBA#5 Akifumi Shimoda (22-2-1, 10 KOs), 122, kept his OPBF super-bantam belt as he was awarded a unanimous technical decision (49-47 twice and 49-46) over previously unbeaten OPBF top ranked Korean champ Changhyun Son (12-1-1, 5 KOs), 121.5, at 0:34 into the fifth round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Shimoda, a talented southpaw speedster, took the initiative from the start, utilizing his superior speed on hand and foot. Son, also a good speedster, attempted to land direct right to the southpaw champ, but could connect with a single solid shot that once bounced the head back midway in the fourth. In the same round Shimoda sustained a very nasty gash caused by an accidental butt on the left side of the head, so badly streaming blood that the Filipino referee Delbert Peligrino had it examined by the JBC physician twice and finally called a halt. Promoter: Teiken Promotions.

Beck arrives in Australia

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former WBA heavyweight challenger Owen “What The Heck” Beck (29-5, 20 KOs) has arrived in Australia in good shape for his showdown with Australian based Samoan Alex “The Lionheart” Leapai (19-3-3,15KO’s) over ten rounds at the Southport RSL club, Southport, Queensland on Thursday. Noel Thornberry who trains and manages Leapai is confident his charge can defeat the Jamiacan born, Nashville, Tennessee,USA based former world heavyweight contender. ” Beck will be the acid test for Leapai.” said Thornberry. “He has an excellent record and has challenged the giant 7 foot Russian Nikolay Valuev in 2006 for the title. Leapai showed the heart of a champion in his most recent bout in June when he got off the canvas to stop 6.5″ American heavyweight Travis Walker (34-4-1) in four rounds. Walker had given highly regarded Chris Arreola a hell of a fight before being stopped. I am confident of victory on Thursday against Beck. English heavyweight Danny Williams has been in negotiations to fight Leapai in September. Williams holds a stoppage win over Mike Tyson so he has credibility.” Promoter is Jamie Myer and televised on Foxtel Cable Television Network.

Fight report/gallery: It was the mixed martial arts version of Muhammad Ali’s “rope-a-dope,” the Pittsburg Steelers “Immaculate Reception,” Kirk Gibson’s pinch hit walk-off 2-run homer and Robert Horry’s game winning 3-pointer against the Sacramento Kings. Anderson Silva had been dominated for 23 minutes by the trash talking Chael Sonnen who was walking the walk that he talked for months. Sonnen was ready to shock the world, but Silva wasn’t going to go out without a bang. Well behind on the scorecards, Silva cinched in the Hail Mary of all triangle chokes and sent the 12,971 fans at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA into a frenzy as he defended his UFC middleweight title by submitting Sonnen at 3:10 in the 5th and final round at UFC 117 . . .
