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.”
