Whyte: Wilder will fall in three

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBC #5, IBF #7,WBO #10 heavyweight Dillian Whyte (21-1, 16 KOs) was impressive in defeating Malcolm Tann (24-6, 13 KOs) on Saturday, stopping tann in round three. The win could now set him up for a fight against WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

“I’m a natural body puncher and try to hurt these guys to the body,” Whyte stated. “Against Deontay Wilder, imagine those shots. With his thin, lean body he’d fall after three or four rounds. I believe in my power. If I land I can knock any of these heavyweights out!”

Terence Crawford: Belts matter.

Garcia avenges loss to Diaz in rematch

By Lucas Ketelle

Luis “Vicious” Garcia avenged his lone career loss to Eddie Diaz in the same building, the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA, while picking up a belt in the process. Garcia, a native of Richmond, CA, was stopped by Diaz in the second round in January of this year, since then Garcia won a #1 contender bout to fight Diaz in a rematch. Garcia nearly stopped Diaz in the first round when a solid overhand right almost relieved Diaz of his senses. Diaz would recover and battle back hurting Garcia later in the bout in a truly competitive affair. Luis Garcia won the Square Warriors junior welterweight by majority decision after eight hard fought rounds. Continue reading “Garcia avenges loss to Diaz in rematch”

Indongo: I lost to clearly one of the best

By Bill Green

Julius Indongo: This is part of the sport. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. The knockout came unexpected. My plan was to start off slow and pick up the pace. Maybe it wasn’t the right plan. I didn’t lose to just anyone. I lost to clearly one of the best. I will be back.

Promoter Eddie Hearn: Julius has had an amazing year. He is the type of person and fighter that will come back from this loss.

[Will he return this year or take some time off?] Everyone will have a say in this decision. He has been in the U.S. for three weeks away from family. He may take some time off, but I assure you he will rebound.

Hooker defeats Jackson, still unbeaten

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

Photo: Stacey Verbeek

“Mighty Mo” Maurice Hooker (23-0-3, 16 KOs) retained his WBO NABO Jr Welterweight Title with a hard fought unanimous decision against the tough as nails Courtney Jackson (17-1, 10 KOs). Hooker dominated the fight with a solid jab and power shots to the head and body throughout that nearly closed the eyes of Jackson but somehow Jackson stayed on his feet and came up with a big 10th and final round to make things interesting. Jackson landed a shot to the jaw of Hooker and several others that put a scare in the pro-Hooker crowd but Hooker showed his championship mettle and finished the fight with big flurries of his own and won going away.

The final scores read 100-90 twice and 99-91 for Hooker who kept his title with the win. Continue reading “Hooker defeats Jackson, still unbeaten”

Tonight: Cave looking for one last shot

By Dave Spencer

The last time most of North American audiences saw super-bantamweight Tyson Cave (29-3 12KO) was an ESPN broadcast almost three years ago. Cave deserved a better decision fate that night in a WBA (interim) championship bout where he would lose a highly contested split decision to Oscar Escandon.

Broadcaster Teddy Atlas championed his cause and railed against the judges in Temecula California fight and while it would be anything but foolish to think that anything would be changed or overturned, it was thought at the very least the Halifax fighter had shown enough to showcase his talents and boxing abilities to prove he belonged to hang near the top of the division.

Mike Alvarado: The Road Back
