Unbeaten super lightweight Maxim “Mad Max” Dadashev (9-0, 8 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Clarence Booth (15-4, 8 KOs). Booth was deducted a point for spitting out his mouthpiece in round four, prompting Dadashev to attack hard to get the stoppage. Time was 1:20. photos

Tyson Fury’s Open letter to Wladimir Klitschko

Wladimir I don’t get why you’re so bitter about your loss to the Gypsy King, always banging on about your loss to AJ and how great he is. At the end of the day, you lost to AJ by TKO in what was a 50/50 fight right until the end. In our fight, you couldn’t land any punches and I made you miss and really played games in there. But yet you say AJ is better.

I know you won’t admit the truth to the world, but in your mind you know the truth, so does Vitali! I wouldn’t expect anything more from you guys. But deep down you know what happened in there. Continue reading “Tyson Fury’s Open letter to Wladimir Klitschko”

Dorticos: Gassiev is my next victim

WBA World Champion Yunier Dorticos (22-0, 21 KOs) is preparing for the fight of his career against IBF World Champion Murat Gassiev (25-0, 18 KOs) in the Ali Trophy semi-final and wants to make a statement to fight fans all over the world.

A World Boxing Super Series poll shows fans having the most trust in Usyk (74%), Gassiev (10%) and Briedis (9%) to win the Muhammad Ali Trophy in the cruiserweight division. That leaves seven percent for the Miami-based Cuban who views his odds quite differently. Continue reading “Dorticos: Gassiev is my next victim”

Evans edges Rosa, Fa wins in 67 seconds

By Brad Snyder at ringside
Photos: Bob Ryder

Luis Rosa Jr. and Yuandale Evans delivered, on what was speculated to be a very exciting Main Event on SHOBOX: The New Generation. Fighting in front of a loud crowd at the Masonic at Temple Live, both fighters came out throwing their best. As Evans won the 1st Round, both picked up the pace, even more in the 2nd. By the 3rd, it appeared Rosa was getting the slight edge, as both fighters continued the pace they began with. Both featherweights continued the crowd pleasing excitement in the 4th. Rosa was connecting with lead left hooks to the head, as Evans tried to work in a right jab to the charging Rosa. Both fighters were going toe to toe in the 5th, in a fight that science would say could not go the distance. At anytime, either boxer looked as if they could have ended the fight with the punches they were throwing. In the 8th, Rosa was able to wobble Evans, catching him and driving him into the corner. Evans rebounded by not clinching, but throwing more punches towards Rosa and catching him with a right that stumbled him. At the end of Round 9, both fighters had to be separated, as they butt heads and talk as the round ends. The 10th round ended, as the fight began, with both fighters throwing as many punches as they could. The action filled fight went to the scorecards, as Evans wins the WBC Continental America’s Featherweight Championship by SD (96-94 Evans, 96-94 Rosa, 96-93 Evans). The fight improves Evans to (20-1, 14 KO’s), as Luis Rosa Jr. loses for the first time and falls to (23-1, 11KO’s). Continue reading “Evans edges Rosa, Fa wins in 67 seconds”

Horn: McGregor would be easy money

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn is focused on a December 13 showdown with WBO#11 Gary Corcoran in Brisbane but he also targeted UFC superstar Conor McGregor. Horn’s promoter Dean Lonergan has asked McGregor how much money he wants and he’ll try to make it happen. “It would be the easiest fight of my career,” Horn told Grantlee Kieza of the Courier Mail. “If it’s under boxing rules McGregor has no chance.

“I watched McGregor’s fight with Floyd Mayweather (in August) and Floyd wore him down and stopped him even though Floyd hadn’t fought for a couple of years. I would bring a lot more pressure on McGregor right from the opening bell and I hit a lot harder than Floyd too. Continue reading “Horn: McGregor would be easy money”
