Undefeated super lightweight prospect Ryan “Blue Chip” Martin (21-0, 12 KOs) of Chattanooga, Tennessee scored a fourth round stoppage over Luis Florez (23-9, 19 KOs) of Columbia in the main event as 360 Promotions hosted its first Hollywood Fight Nights show at the Avalon in Hollywood, California. Boxing patiently, Martin picked his spots in the opening round connecting on Florez with big punches. A right hand by Martin in round three staggered Florez and Martin followed up with a left hook dropping Florez. Another right hand in the fourth by Martin did it as Florez was down and out. Referee Jack Reiss waved it off 30 seconds into the fourth.

In the co-feature, welterweight Brian Ceballo (1-0) of New York made his pro debut with a first round stoppage of Luis Alberto Longoria, (1-1) of Sonora, Mexico. Ceballo busted Longoria’s nose as he cornered him following up with a flurry as the referee stepped in to stop the fight at 2:16 of the first.

Truax aims to teach DeGale another lesson

IBF super middleweight world champion Caleb “Golden” Truax shocked the boxing world when he defeated then-champion James DeGale last December in London to claim his world title. Now, Truax prepares for an equally difficult task as he is set to defend the title in a rematch against DeGale Saturday, April 7 live on SHOWTIME from Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

“I think DeGale overlooked me last time and I think he’s doing it again this time,” said Truax. “I see him already talking about fighting David Benavidez and George Groves. Did he not learn his lesson the first time? I think his injury talk is an excuse as well. He said his arm and shoulder felt fine heading into and immediately after the fight last December. I don’t believe any of that injury talk. It means nothing to me.” Continue reading “Truax aims to teach DeGale another lesson”

Three-time world champ Akira Yaegashi (26-6, 14 KOs), 114.75, made a fine comeback when he floored Indonesian flyweight champion Frans Damur Palue (20-19-2, 12 KOs), 114.25, and halted him at 2:24 of the second round in a scheduled ten on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

Arum: Meat story like ‘the dog ate my homework’

By TMZSports.com

Boxing Hall of Famer Bob Arum says Canelo Alvarez should go away for a long time if he’s taking steroids to get an edge on GGG … but the top boxing promoter ain’t gonna throw the book at him just yet. Don’t get it twisted — Bob says Canelo blaming his positive PED test on Mexican beef is like telling your teacher, “the dog ate my homework” — but he says Canelo’s owed due process.

“If drugs were taken to bulk him up, they gotta suspend him, and they gotta suspend him for a long period,” Arum told TMZ Sports. “If it was inadvertent … then give him a pass.”

Recap: Canelo was temporarily suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission over the weekend … just days after GGG slammed him as a long-time juicer. The NSAC will decide his fate at a hearing on April 10.

Andrade says he’ll fight GGG if Canelo can’t

Undefeated, two-time world champion Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) is ready and available for a showdown with unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, should Canelo Alvarez not be cleared by the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 10th for his May 5th rematch with Golovkin.

“I am ready, willing and able to step to the plate on May 5th to fight Golovkin,” proclaimed Andrade. Continue reading “Andrade says he’ll fight GGG if Canelo can’t”
