Horn’s Key To Victory Over Corcoran

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn will use thumping overhand rights and short left hooks to be victorious over WBA #10 Gary Corcoran on December 13 in Brisbane, Australia, according to his strength and conditioning coach Dundee Kim.

“Gary is very tall and constantly coming forward throwing long punches,” Kim told Grantlee Kieza of the Courier Mail. “For Pacquiao, we worked on Jeff throwing a lot of double right hands against the southpaw. But for this fight Jeff is working on taking a step back and landing his overhand right as a counter over the top of Gary’s left jab, or getting inside Gary’s long punches with short hooks.

Heavyweight David Haye has been forced out of the rematch with Tony Bellew after injuring his bicep in freak accident.

Haye and Bellew were set to renew hostilities again at The O2 in London on December 17 following their rollercoaster first meeting in March won by Bellew, but the two teams will now work towards a new date for the rematch early in 2018, with news on that to come this week.

“I am devastated to announce my much-anticipated rematch against Tony Bellew has been postponed until March 24 or May 5, subject to scheduling,” said Haye. “Despite the recent injury rumors, I was in perfect condition with an incredibly strong training camp, currently weighing lighter than I have for more than five years, I couldn’t wait to get back in the ring. I was ready to rewrite the ending of the Haye Bellew saga. Continue reading “Haye injured, Bellew-Haye 2 postponed”

Puello crushes Gutierrez, Jones wins

By Robert Coster

A good crowd showed up at the luxury Jaragua Renaissance Hotel and Casino in Santo Domingo to watch Shuan Boxing Promotion’s last card of the year, a marathon event which ended at 2AM. In the main event, WBA #11 jr welterweight Alberto Puello (13-0, 8 KOs) gave the best performance of his young career by annihilating Ricardo Gutierrez (11-2-1, 6 KOs) of Mexico in 1’28” of the first round. The stylish Puello is generally known to take his time but not on this night: a vicious right hook to the body sent the visitor to the canvas on his back for the full count – a quick, spectacular victory for the young Dominican who retains his WBA Fedelatin and WBC Latino belts.

The co-main event had former WBA cruiserweight world champion Guillermo Jones (41-3-2, 30 KOs) of Panama battle former amateur star Ytalo Perea (10-3, 6 KOs) of Ecuador for the vacant WBA Fedelatin heavyweight title. The contest was an exciting give-and-take rumble for 11 rounds. Perea – a former Pan American Games gold medalist – started off well but the latter portion of the fight saw the veteran Jones take command. The 45-year-old Jones was awarded a split decision (107-102, 104-105,107-102). Fightnews had Jones winning 106-103. Continue reading “Puello crushes Gutierrez, Jones wins”

Baxter Scores Knockout In DC

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Washington, DC welterweight Jonathan “Bad Badger” Baxter scored a fourth-round TKO over Joseph “Trouble” Figueroa of the Bronx, NY in the main event of the TAC Promotions/Putney Promotions card at the Merrick Recreation Center in DC.

Badger hammered Figueroa all throughout the contest with head and body shots. Figueroa resembled a punching bag with feet, throwing very little back offensively in return. Baxter made Figueroa drop to one knee with a right to the body in the third round. Early in the fourth, Figueroa fell to his knees again, although it seemed to be more from a tangle than from a Baxter punch. However, referee Sharon Sands had seen enough and waived the bout off at 35 seconds of the round. Badger, who competed in his hometown for the first time as a pro, is now 9-1, eight KO’s. Figueroa, who was knocked out for the first time in more than seven years, falls to 11-63-5, three KO’s. Continue reading “Baxter Scores Knockout In DC”

Light heavyweight Lionell Thompson (19-4, 11 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Earl Newman (10-1-1, 7 KOs).

Cruz stops Luna in three

By Matt Richardson at ringside

Junior lightweight contender Bryant “Pee Wee” Cruz scored one of the more impressive wins of his career on Saturday night at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, New York when he violently knocked out Angel Luna in the third round of a scheduled eight-round fight.

The bout was the main event of a nine-bout card promoted by legendary former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield’s new promotional company, “Real Deal Boxing.”

After a relatively close two rounds Cruz (18-2, 9 KO’s) dropped Luna hard with a flush right. Luna (12-4-1, 7 KO’s) fell onto his chest and struggled to rise, correctly prompting a stoppage at the 42-second mark of the round.

Luna had recently gone the distance with both Tevin Farmer and Toka Kahn Clary, making his destruction at the hands of Cruz that much more unexpected. Cruz, meantime, was coming off a March 2017 loss at Madison Square Garden, his second in three fights. Continue reading “Cruz stops Luna in three”

Oscar: GGG-Canelo 2 likely on Cinco de Mayo

By TMZSports.com

Promoter Oscar de la Hoya is putting concerns there won’t be a GGG vs. Canelo Alvarez rematch to bed … he says it’s happening — most likely on Cinco de Mayo — and it’s going to be the biggest thing in boxing.

We got The Golden Boy at his 21st Annual Turkey Giveaway in L.A. Saturday and asked him about the highly anticipated fight (part 2) … and he’s pumped about it too. He says the plan is for the rematch to go down the same place as last time — T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas — on May 5, 2018. As you’ll recall … the first fight was ruled a draw despite one judge insanely scoring it 118 to 110 for Canelo, who’s Oscar’s fighter.

As for Conor McGregor — who Oscar recently boasted he could beat in 2 rounds — the retired former champ doubled down … and took a jab at Floyd Mayweather while he was at it.

Parker: I would KO Joshua and Wilder

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker is confident he has the power to knock out both WBA, IBF champion Anthony Joshua and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. “I don’t think I’ve ever gotten the respect of being a world champion, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” Parker said. “I feel as a world champion I have achieved something incredible in our country and am very happy with what I have achieved. But I don’t think I get the respect.

“Now I have the WBO, I want the WBC. I want the IBF. I want the WBA. AJ (Joshua) is a fighter who is champion of the world. My goal is to unify. My goal is to grab his belts and to say that I am the real champion. I don’t think I would have problems knocking them [Joshua or Wilder] out.”
