Fight Club OC Results

By Rocky Morales at ringside

In main event action, Jonathon Esquivel (3-0, 3KO) survived an early knockdown to come back and knock out gritty challenger, Jerhed Fenderson (1-5) by way of TKO at 2:03 of the fifth round of a scheduled six round super middleweight bout.

It was a straight right counter from Fenderson in the second round that floored the southpaw, Esquivel. Esquivel did his best work fighting from a distance as Fenderson was able to be competitive when they fought at close quarters. Finally, midway through the fifth round, Esquivel unleashed a barrage of punches that badly hurt Fenderson. With Fenderson in trouble and Esquivel landing at will with no punches coming back, the referee waved off the fight to make Esquivel the TKO winner. Continue reading “Fight Club OC Results”

The headliner in Japan is 2012 Olympic middleweight gold medalist Ryota Murata (12-1, 9 KOs) who will participate in a grudge fight with WBA 160-pound champion Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam (36-2, 21 KOs) with his belt on the line on this coming October 22. Murata lost a highly controversial split decision to N’Dam despite dropping him in the fourth session last May, and people here greatly anticipate his victory in the forthcoming rematch. If crowned, Murata will be the very first Olympic gold medalist that acquire the professional world throne out of Japan.

Murata engaged in a public workout before many press people and photographers at the Teiken Gym on Thursday and showed he was in good shape after his strenuous training for months. Murata said, “This time I wish to finish him and win the belt. I have been preparing well and will maintain this condition until the title bout. I hear that Mr. Bob Arum will come and watch this fight and would like to show him a good performance. I’m looking forward to my fight on October 22.”

Should Murata be victorious, not only our boxing fraternity but all the athletic world in Japan will celebrate his coronation. photos

By TMZSports.com

Floyd Mayweather got into a shouting match with a heckler on the streets of NYC on Monday night — after the fan accused Floyd of running from Gennady Golovkin. The video ends with Floyd’s bodyguard threatening to choke a dude out.
