By David Finger

Isaac Dogboe and Javier Chacon took part in a final press conference on Friday at the Kempinski Hotel, Gold Coast City, Accra, Ghana before today’s fight at the Bukom Boxing Arena in Accra. Both fighters were respectful but confident as they talked about the upcoming clash.

When asked if he was ready for the fight Isaac Dogboe electrified the crowd with a forceful response. “(I’m the) warrior of Africa! I am always ready!”

Dogboe recognized he was facing off against a world class opponent in Chacon, brother of former WBO featherweight champion Juan Pablo Chacon. Javier Chacon has twice fought for a WBA world title and has won five in a row. But Dogboe nonetheless remained supremely confident and even directed a message to Chacon at the press conference.

WBO female jr featherweight champion Amanda Serrano (33-1-1, 25 KOs) retained her title with a third round TKO over Edina Kiss (13-5, 5 KOs) on Friday night at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Kiss went down one time in the second round.

In his first fight since an unsuccessful world title challenge in December 2015, jr lightweight Jonathan Oquendo (27-5, 17 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over Orlando Rizo (19-11, 11 KOs). Oquendo won by TKO at :01 of round six when Rizo did not answer the bell for that round. Oquendo sent Rizo to the canvas in round five.

Two-time Puerto Rican Olympian jr featherweight Jeyvier Cintrón (2-0, 1 KO) won by TKO at 2:21 of the second round when the referee stopped the bout after Guillermo Dejeas (7-8-1, 2 KOs) went down.

Three-time Olympian and 2016 Gold medalist Robson Conceicao (4-0, 3 KOs) needed just 52 seconds to finish Bernardo Gómez (18-8, 11 KOs). Gomez was hit with a good punch and stayed on the floor.

Boxing returns tonight to Roswell, NM

By David Finger

Boxing fans in New Mexico will be converging on the city of Roswell tonight when School of Hard Knocks Promotions kicks off “Throwdown in Alien Town,” the first boxing show in Roswell since 2012.

The card will feature popular local journeyman John “Smiley” Herrera (4-17-2, 2 KOs). Herrera takes on Belen, New Mexico’s Gene Perez (1-9-1, 0 KOs) in the main event. The last time Herrera fought in his backyard he was seen as something of a gritty journeyman with a longshot chance at pulling it together to make a run as a regional contender. Herrera capitalized on the opportunity and made sure to leave his local fans satisfied. Smiley scored a devastating knockout over Cristoval Larrazolo, giving Roswell boxing fans a hope that Herrera’s career was about to turn a corner. However, it would not be the case for the likeable Herrera, who would go winless in his next fourteen fights. Continue reading “Boxing returns tonight to Roswell, NM”

WBO 154lb eliminator: Liam vs. Liam 2

Bitter super welterweight rivals Liam Smith and Liam Williams will lock horns again on Saturday 28th October following their bloody war at the Manchester Arena back in April. Both men will be looking to settle the score after the controversial ending of their first meeting. Williams was ahead on the cards, but his corner stopped the fight due to a cut, which they contend was caused by a headbutt. Smith did not win the vacant WBO interim title at the time because he failed to make weight.

Social media exploded after their fight as fans called on promoter Frank Warren to match the foes together again. Smith and Williams are chomping at the bit to get at each other for a second time; with another shot at the WBO interim super welterweight title on the line. The site is TBA.

Moran seeks trifecta on Telemundo tonight

Lightweight Antonio “Toño” Moran (21-2, 14 KOs) will make his third headlining appearance on Telemundo tonight.

The ten round bout will be the Telemundo main event at the Auditorio Blackberry in Mexico City. The vacant WBO Latino lightweight title will be at stake.

Morán has responded well under the bright lights. However, he could very well have his hands full with the veteran Rosales, who is fresh off of upsetting an unbeaten fighter. Morán feels he will be 3 and 0 on Telemundo following his fight tonight. Continue reading “Moran seeks trifecta on Telemundo tonight”

Otake, Dacquel keep OPBF belts

By Joe Koizumi

An OPBF title twinbill took place on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan, and we saw both defending champions successfully keep their belts after hard-fought battles. OPBF super-bantam titlist Hidenori Otake (29-2-3, 13 KOs), a shaven skulled Japanese veteran, 121.75, retained his throne as he displayed his great durability and abundant stamina in finally finishing Kinshiro Usui (27-6, 11 KOs), 122, with persistent body bombardments at 3:04 of the tenth round.

Having failed to win the WBA 122-pound belt from Scott Quigg via nearly lopsided decision in Liverpool in 2014, Otake scored six wins straight since and acquired the vacant OPBF belt by beating Filipino Jelbirt Gomera this March. Otake withstood Usui’s sharper lefts in earlier rounds, fought back patiently and had him gradually slowing down with continual combinations downstairs. Usui, a year his senior at 37, knelt down with the champ’s tenacious assault with the towel fluttering from the corner. A towel-tossing during the ref’s counting has the result registered as a knockout here in Japan. Continue reading “Otake, Dacquel keep OPBF belts”
