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. He will also look to make it three consecutive wins on the network as he takes on tough countryman Guadalupe “Bronco” Rosales (34-12, 18 KOs). 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
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

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”

Bronco aims to buck Telemundo foe Friday

Veteran Guadalupe “Bronco” Rosales (34-12,18 KOs) will goes heads up with countryman Antonio “Toño” Morán (21-2, 14 KOs) this Friday. The 10 round lightweight bout will be the Telemundo main event with the vacant WBO Latino title at stake. The site will be the Auditorio Blackberry in Mexico City, Mexico.
