Upcoming Japanese prospect, WBO#13 super-feather Tsutomu Sueyoshi (15-1, 10 KOs), 131.75, made short work of Filipino Nelson Tinampay (12-5-1, 5 KOs), 132, with a single body shot at 2:32 of the third round in a scheduled ten on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan.

Sueyoshi, an upright jabber, once suffered a split decision loss to Masayuki Ito, the current OPBF 130-pound titlist, in a four-round contest in 2012, and thus scored twelve victorious in a row. Tinampay fell prone in agony to be counted out by the referee Someya. Continue reading “Sueyoshi, Ishimoto Victorious”

Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury doesn’t even want to talk about making a comeback at the moment. “I’ve not been involved in the sport for nearly two years, so I don’t think it’s fair to try and dampen the lads as it’s their big time to shine,” Fury told BoxNation. “My time was two years ago. If I come back there will be an announcement, but if I don’t then goodbye.”

2016 USA Boxing Show Review

By Johnny B’

Each year I look back at the previous year to see the health of professional boxing shows in the USA. Usually, I look at this in the spring. This year I am a little late, but there are fewer shows to report on. California, which almost always leads the US with the most shows, again was the top producer with 92 shows.

Texas ranked second a distance back with 57 shows and Pennsylvania was third with 41 shows. Then there is a bit of a drop-off. 29 shows for Florida, 28 for West Virginia, 27 for New York*, just 23 for Nevada, 22 for North Carolina, 20 for Oklahoma, and 19 to tenth place State of Colorado.

Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero Retires

Multi-division world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero has announced his retirement.

“First, I want to thank God for allowing me to have a wonderful career. I’m a kid from a small town in Gilroy, California, who made it to the mountain top of the boxing world. When I was a young kid growing up, I always believed in myself, but never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a small-town kid like myself, would be fighting in front of millions of fans.”

“I was blessed to win multiple world titles in four-divisions. A boxer’s career is a long and tough road. Many tears were shed, lots of blood, and tons of sweat. Many miles were traveled, thousands of rounds sparred, none were easy and nothing was ever given to me. I earned everything I got the old fashion way. I never ducked anyone and fought the best fighters in the world. I fought my way through every obstacle to make sure my fans enjoyed every second, of every round, of my fights.” Continue reading “Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero Retires”

Popular Long Island light heavyweight contender Joe Smith Jr. (23-2-0, 19 KOs) gritted his way through Saturday’s ten round battle with Sullivan Barrera (20-1-0, 14 KOs) after suffering a broken jaw early in the 2nd round.

Upset in Juarez: Villalba smashes Garcia in one

By David Finger

In a stunning upset, Esteban “Tremendo” Villalba scored a first round TKO over El Paso’s Josue Garcia Friday night in Ciudad Juarez, just south of the border with El Paso, Texas.

But although Villalba, a native of Juarez, came into the fight with a less than impressive record, he has shown tremendous power in the past.

Horn Sr. criticizes Team Pacquiao

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Jeff Horn Sr., who is the father of WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn, talks to Fightnews.com® and says the WBO review board validated the scorecard of judge Waleska Roldan (117-111 for Horn) and also mentions that his son is currently in Las Vegas on holiday with his wife.

The 59-year-old elder Horn also sent an open letter to Fightnews.com® saying Manny Pacquiao should ponder dumping his corner team because of the risk of “self-sabotage” going into the rematch with his son slated for November in Australia.

“As the dust settles after the controversial but credible win by Jeff to snatch the WBO title from Manny Pacquiao, attention now turns to the potential rematch.

“To say that the lack of sportsmanship shown by Pacquiao since fight day has been disappointing would be an understatement. However, a look into the farcical and unprofessional performance of the Pacquiao team immediately prior to and during the Battle of Brisbane beggars belief.
