Accompanied by Cuban trainer Pedro Diaz, the Frenchman accepted an interview by Japanese press people upon his arrival.

N’Dam confidently said, “I have been strenuously training to be in superbly tiptop shape. I showed my strength and superiority in our first encounter, and will repeat it again. I hit the canvas last time, and will not have Murata touch me this time. I’ll be untouchable to Murata. I wish to try to finish him. Murata should conquer me, otherwise I’ll keep my belt after fighting twelve rounds.”

Spence-Peterson on tap for January

IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. has announced that he will make the first defense of his belt against former world champion Lamont Peterson in January 2018 on SHOWTIME on a date and site to be determined. “It’s finally time to defend my title, capture more titles and become the undisputed welterweight champion of the world,” stated Spence. “That’s what I’m ready to do next year.

“[Peterson] is somebody that I looked up to as an amateur. I sparred with him as an amateur and learned a lot from him. He’s one of my favorite fighters and is a guy that will fight anybody. I’ve never known him to duck a fight. Lamont is a tricky fighter. He’s been around the block. He does a lot of cagey, veteran things. I’m looking to get experience in this fight. I’m still a young fighter.”

Spence fought just once in 2017, dethroning Kell Brook for the world title in May.

Report/Photos: Tony Mayger/Ringtone Boxing

By the end of round two, Pianeta had a nasty cut open up over his left eye. His corner did fine work to stem the flow of blood.

After a barage of tenderising body shots, Pianeta took a knee in round seven only to get up for Johnson to continue his beating. With blow after heavy blow sinking in to Pianeta’s ribs, his corner had no choice but to throw in the towel. Continue reading “Johnson sinks Pianeta to take IBO title”

Undercard results from Brooklyn, New York

By Arvin Nundloll

In the night’s swing bout, Julian Sosa fought Erick Daniel Martinez in a scheduled 6 round Welterweight fight. Both Sosa and Martinez fought in each other’s pocket, trading crisp inside hooks and uppercuts in quick succession. Martinez was dropped suddenly towards the end of the 3rd by a counter right hook that had him seeing stars. Martinez to his credit was able to see out the round and come out for the 4th. At the end of 4 rounds, the judges scored the fight 40-35 all around to Julia Sosa. Sosa moves to 10-0-1, 3 KO’s while Martinez drops to 14-10-1, 8 KO’s.

Detroit native Tony Harrison took on Paul Valenzuela Jr. of Santa Rosalia. Mexico in a scheduled 8 round middleweight bout. Harrison played his part as the aggressor of the fight, going after Valenzuela Jr. with calculated jabs in an attempt to open his opponent. The 2nd round saw Valenzuela Jr. on the canvas due to a slip but that didn’t deter Harrison from continuing to pile on the pressure to unnerve Valenzuela Jr. In round 5, Valenzuela Jr. received a low blow from Harrison and quickly returned the favor by handing a low blow to Harrison to even the score. An explosive 7th round saw Harrison go for the kill after landing a sharp straight hook to wobble Valenzuela Jr. Harrison got sloppy however and ate an overhand right that knocked his senses off but Valenzuela Jr. ran out of gas going for the knockdown. Round 8 was filled with the smell of a KO in the air but both fighters seemed fatigued and content to see the end of the round.

After 8 rounds, the fight was scored 80-71, 78-73 and 78-73 to Tony Harrison. Harrison move sup to 25-2, 20 KO’s while Valenzuela Jr. valiantly drops to 20-6, 14 KO’s.

Cindy Serrano fought a tactical 8 round fight against fellow Super Featherweight Edina Kiss. Serrano pressed the action, landing clean scoring jabs against Kiss while dominating the center of the ring. Kiss struggled to find her rhythm and ended up coming short with her middle round exchanges with Serrano. As the fight progressed Serrano began to take a step back and make a seemingly one-sided fight a bit more contestable, allowing Kiss to press a bit more than usual in the 6th and 7th.

A slight twist with the judge’s scorecard as they scored the fight 78-74 to Serrano, 78-74 to Kiss and 79-73 to Serrano. Serrano is now 27-5-3, 10 KO’s, while Kiss is now 13-6, 7 KO’s. Continue reading “Undercard results from Brooklyn, New York”

Nakayama barely keeps OPBF 112lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

Making his initial defense since his coronation last June, OPBF flyweight champ Keisuke Nakayama (10-2-2, 4 KOs), a slick-punching southpaw at 112, barely kept his regional belt when he was held to a hard-fought draw with sharp and speedy Filipino Jobert Alvarez (17-2-2, 7 KOs), 111.25, over twelve hard-fought rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. The OPBF#8 Alvarez, two years his junior at 27, was a better boxer than his credentials indicated in a competitive fight of southpaws. The official verdict was as follows: Kazuo Abe (Japan) 115-113 for the champ, Randy Caluag (Philipppines) 115-114 for the challenger, Kazunobu Asao (Japan) 114-114. The third man was Kazutoshi Yoshida (Japan).

In a confrontation of southpaws, Alvarez scored well with southpaw right hooks to the cautious champ, taking three points to losing one in the first four sessions. The Filipino lefty, an upright stylist with good footwork, seemed to be outsmarting the crafty champ in the beginning of the fight. As the champ fought back hard, it became a see-saw affair in the next four sessions with following tallies after the eighth—77-75 twice and 77-76, all in favor of the challenger.

OPBF 122lb champ Otake defeats Maruta

By Joe Koizumi

A greatly anticipated confrontation of a vastly experienced champion and a best and brightest prospect resulted in a disappointingly lopsided affair on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. WBC#13/IBF#14 OPBF (Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation) super-bantamweight champ Hidenori Otake (30-2-3, 13 KOs), 121.75, impressively kept his regional belt that he acquired after his unsuccessful world title shot shattered by Scott Quigg in Liverpool in 2014, as he also shattered an ambition of previously unbeaten 20-year-old future-champ Hinata Maruta (5-1, 4 KOs), 121.75, by overpowering and outhustling him nearly all the way into a unanimous decision (117-111 and 116-112 twice) over twelve. The referee was Ryuji Fukuchi (Japan).

In his pro debut in 2015, Maruta, a 5’10” handsome and stylish youngster to be expected as a future star, defeated then world-rated Filipino Jason Canoy, and won the vacant WBC Youth belt in his third pro bout by finishing Wilbert Berondo in July of the previous year. He retained his belt twice within the distance to be named the best WBC Youth champ of the year to his credit. But Maruta’s title crack against such a rough and ringwise Orlando Salido stylist as Otake, a 36-year-old veteran, could be eventually criticized as simply premature since the prospect was unable to show any of his overly expected assets only to be forced to continually fight with his back to the ropes, absorbing much punishment from all angles.

Free-swinging Japanese Hiroaki Teshigawara (15-2-2, 9 KOs), 118, captured the WBO Asia Pacific (ASPAC) bantamweight belt when he put on a rough-and-tumble fight, recklessly mixed it up, decked defending Filipino champ Jetro Pabustan (29-5-6, 9 KOs), 118, in the ninth and finally halted him at 2:52 of the tenth round in a scheduled twelve on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan.

Do you still remember formerly three-time world 154-pound champ Koichi Wajima who dethroned Italian Carmelo Bossi (a 1960 Olympic silver medalist who lost to Wilbert McClure in the final in Rome) in 1971? Teshigawara, powerful but less accurate, is his pupil under his management, and was considerably evaluated thanks to his split decision loss to current national bantam boss Ryo Akaho last October.

2016 Rio Olympians Teofimo Lopez and Antonio Vargas promoted by Top Rank were both triumphant. Lightweight Lopez (7-0, 6 KOs) dropped Josh Ross (3-6-4, 0 KOs) four times in a TKO2 win. Time was 1:57. Super bantamweight Vargas (4-0, 3 KOs) halted Miguel Rebullosa (4-5, 2 KOs) in round two also. Two knockdowns in that one. Time was 1:11. Continue reading “Lozano defeats Rodriguez in rematch”

In a Friday the 13th main event on ESPN from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, knockout artist Ismael Barroso (20-1-2, 19 KOs) terrorized Fidel Maldonado Jr. (24-4-1, 19 KOs) over six rounds before slashing a left hook to the body and dropping Maldonado for the full count and then some at 2:23 of round six in a scheduled ten round super lightweight bout.

As is often the case when two southpaws face each other, the fight was an awkward affair early, with lots of bumping of heads and shoulders, which led to frequent holding and prevented either fighter from getting into any sort of rhythm. Continue reading “Barroso KOs Maldonado at Fastasy Springs”
