Gallimore entered his last fight ranked #15 by the WBA and DeLoach (17-2, 9 KOs) was ranked #4 by the IBF and ranked by two more of the major sanctioning bodies. The result of the fight could possibly lead to Gallimore being ranked across the board by all the sanctioning bodies. Fightnews caught up with him shortly after his fight.

WBO#9 Hisada keeps Japanese 108lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

Japanese national light-flyweight champ WBO#9 Tetsuya Hisada (29-9-2, 17 KOs), 108, scored his first defense when he chalked up a fine TKO victory over formerly world challenger Atsushi Kakutani (19-6-1, 12 KOs), 107.5, at 2:54 of the eighth round on Friday in Osaka, Japan. Having acquired the vacant belt by defeating Kenichi Horikawa on points this April, Hisada had a tough time coping with the taller jabber in the first half, after which the open scoring system showed the challenger was leading: 49-46, 49-47 for Kakutani, 48-47 for Hisada.

The champ accelerated his attack from the sixth on, battering the bread basket of the taller opponent to have him retreating and slowing down. The seventh saw the champ connect with a vicious left hook to the face, dropping Kakutani to the deck. Hisada, in round eight, brought him to a standstill with a barrage of punches, when the ref declared a well-timed halt to save the loser. Kakutani had an ambitious crack at the WBC 108-pound belt against Adrian Confesor Hernandez in Mexico city in 2013, when he decked the champ in the first round but was demolished in the fourth session. Hisada showed his resilience and relentless attack in the fatal canto.

The 12th Round — The Middleweight Division FACTS

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

I wish to express my sincere deepest condolences to two very dear persons who have suffered terrible loses this past week. Tom Loeffler lost his Mother and Miguel DePablos lost his father. The boxing family is great as we all unite in difficult moments and I am certain Tom and Miguel feel the warmth from all over the world joining them in prayers and hope for prompt resignation.

I am back from a summer vacation cruise with my wife and kids. For the first time ever I turned off my phone and didn’t open my email in 7 days. The greatest time! I had forgotten how to live the moment and cherish what is happening NOW.

Then came reality, open my laptop and Boom there I found endless emails of all sorts. One can easily put in perspective the role that at times I have to play as President of the WBC. One email simply read… “Since you have not responded we have no other alternative but to take you to court“ !!!!!! I couldn’t believe it!

The Huntington Park in Columbus, Ohio served as the backdrop to a great night of boxing Saturday evening. With Mother Nature on their side to provide a beautiful sky and cool temperatures, promoter Troy Speakman, along with, event coordinator Steve Weaver produced a quality event named “Duel in the Park”.

The main event of the evening was the fight of the night. The 8-round bout had defending champion, Zak Rollins’ Ohio Jr. Middleweight Championship on the line. Zak would face an undefeated challenger in Jamie Walker. The fight, which provided a lot of action, showcased both fighters’ skills. Rollins, who worked from the southpaw position, was able to find early success with a lead overhand right. He was, also, able to mix in a lead left from the southpaw position in the first two rounds. Round 3 found challenger, Walker, coming out aggressive. Rollins still fired the lead left, then immediately after, Walker pushed forward delivering body work and pressure. This constant forward movement had Rollins firing back against the ropes. Continue reading “Walker wins Ohio Jr. Middleweight Championship; McCreary remains undefeated”

New WBO 112lb champ Kimura returns in triumph

By Joe Koizumi
Photo by Boxing Beat

In Western countries, the number of thirteen might be ominous, but it’s a fortunate number for the Japanese boxing fraternity. Newly crowned WBO flyweight champ Sho Kimura is our thirteenth current world titleholder, who made a triumphal return on Saturday from Shanghai where he dethroned defending champ and two-time Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming by an eleventh round stoppage. It’s a come-from-behind TKO for Kimura, a prefight underdog, turned loose with a flurry of punches to floor the champ Zou and halt him thereafter. He had been trailing on points after the tenth—97-93, 96-94 for Zou, and 94-96 for Kimura. Handled by his manager/trainer Masayuki Ariyoshi (who also cultivated WBC female 102-pound champ Momo Koseki to seventeen defenses straight) , Kimura jubilantly said, “I suffered a cut in the third round, and couldn’t see well with the right eye thereafter, but kept fighting on. It was my strenuous training thanks to Kaicho (club owner in Japanese) that made me throw so many combinations in the eleventh.” Continue reading “New WBO 112lb champ Kimura returns in triumph”

Broner: I’m still the ‘can man’

Adrien “The Problem” Broner was a no-show at the post-fight press conference, but after the fight he did tell Showtime’s Jim Gray that he didn’t think his loss to Mikey Garcia was ‘do or die.’ “If I fight tomorrow, everybody in this mutha-f**king hall will still come and see me,” said Broner. “At the end of the day I’m still AB, I’m still about billions, I’m still the ‘can man,’ I’m still a fighting mutha-f**ker and anybody still can get it. If he wants to rematch in California, we can do it…at the end of the day, I’m still a four-time world champion at four different weight classes and I’ll still be in the history books.”

Garcia-Broner post fight press conference

By Matt Richardson

Mikey Garcia: “I had a very good night tonight. Adrien Broner, he’s a tough fighter. He’s a great champion but I was the better fighter tonight. I’m just very happy with the way things turned out for me…I felt really comfortable at 140 right now. I felt my power was still there, my speed, my reflexes. My power doesn’t carry on but I feel strong. If there’s an opportunity at 135, I’ll do that. I’ll move down to 135.”

Garcia says his team has been contacted about a potential fight against Vasily Lomachenko “but I don’t see him making the move up at 135. If he’s serious about it he can come give us a phone call.”

Adrien Broner did not show for the press conference. Continue reading “Garcia-Broner post fight press conference”

Results from Chicago

By Craig Wick at ringside

At the UIC Pavilion in Chicago Friday night, Jessica McCaskill (5-1, 3 KOs) claimed the vacant ABO Intercontinental Lightweight Championship by easily defeating Natalie Brown (6-3, 4 KOs) Stone Mountain, GA, via second round TKO. Outside of the first minute of the fight, in which Brown was able to land some cheap right hands, the fight was all McCaskill. Early in round two, a combination to the head dropped Brown along the ropes, and any hope that this one would see the full eight went out the window. Brown beat the count however with legs resembling a petty officer’s first liberty call in Subic Bay, she was in no condition to evade McCaskill’s follow-up flurry, which ended the fight at the 1:22 mark.

WBC #11 Kuga keeps Japanese 122lb belt

We felt like slipping into another time, that is, 1980s. In such a furious and fierce give-and-take battle, WBC#11 Yusaku Suga (15-2-1, 10 KOs), 122, impressively kept his Japanese national super-bantamweight belt by winning a unanimous decision (97-94 twice, 96-94) over gallant challenger Ryoichi Tamura (8-3-1, 5 KOs), 121.75, over ten hard-fought frames on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

Having dethroned then world-rated Yasutaka Ishimoto via second round stoppage this February, Kuga, a durable hard-puncher making his initial defense, took the leadoff, piling up points steadily, but Tamura, who lately scored four knockouts in a row, fought back much better than people expected.

World 130lb champs Uchiyama, Miura retire

By Joe Koizumi

It might be a strange coincidence that our outstanding world super-featherweight champions—Takashi Uchiyama and Takashi Miura—announced their farewell to the ring this weekend. Uchiyama, 37, started his career in the paid ranks at the age of 25 after his long amateur experience, became WBA titlist at 30, and retained it eleven times to his credit prior to his forfeiture to Jezreel Corrales and then his failure to win it back from the Panamanian via split verdict last December.

Middleweight contender Jermall Charlo blew through Jorge Sebastian Heiland, knocking him down in the second and again in the fourth before Heiland’s corner called the fight off. The fight was a WBC middleweight eliminator with the chance to fight the winner of the Sept. 16 Gennady Golovkin-Saul Alvarez fight at stake.

Charlo (26-0, 20 KO’s) knocked Heiland down in the second after connecting with a hard hook. Heiland (29-5-2, 16 KO’s) rose slowly and when the action resumed Charlo teed off with a series of hard, flush rights. Continue reading “Charlo crushes Heiland”
