Joshua still aiming for clash with Wilder

WBA, IBF, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua says everyone wants Deontay Wilder to beat Tyson Fury to set up a Joshua-Wilder showdown. “We had a meeting about that,” Joshua told Sky Sports. “It has great potential. I heard [Wilder and Fury] have a third fight lined up towards the end of the year but we have to throw a curveball in there. Something that gets Wilder’s attention providing he wins so that he thinks to himself: ‘Even though I have a rematch clause, I’ll see how I can manipulate my contract, get out of it, and fight for the undisputed championship’.”

“It’s a big moment for me. I can’t have a bad performance. I’m taking this opponent seriously. I plan on having a good performance,” Ryan Garcia told Fightnews.com®.

“We thought February 14 would be a perfect date for Ryan,” Promoter Oscar De La Hoya told Fighnews.com®. “This is his coming-out party.”

2019 was not the best year for Garcia as the 21-year-old had been wrapped up in some drama and was the subject of fighter contract breach with Mayweather Promotions and De la Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. The highly touted lightweight was also seen partying with Floyd Mayweather early last year. It is said that there were discussions of fights with Mayweather Promotions prospect Rolando Romero and champion Gervonta Davis. Continue reading “Kingry: I want Gervonta Davis this year”

Takesako defeats Hosokawa, wins OPBF 160lb belt

Unbeaten Japanese middleweight champ Kazuto Takesako (12-0-1, 11 KOs), 159.75, dethroned OPBF 160-pound ruler Shinobu Charlie Hosokawa (12-5-1, 11 KOs), 159.5, as he pounded out a nearly shutout decision (120-108, 119-109 twice) over twelve lopsided rounds on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

Takesako Hosokawa01

The hard-punching national titlist Kazuto swarmed over the taller slow starter from the outset, battering him from all angles. After the eighth, the open scoring system read 80-72 for all the judges since what Charlie could do was to repeatedly grab the by far more aggressive foe. The durable Charlie, the younger brother of former national 140-pound champ Valentine Hosokawa, attempted to demonstrate his last surge from the tenth, but couldn’t overcome his huge deficits on points against the monotonous but more powerful challenger.

The victor Takesako now holds both the OPBF and national belts.

Rosario, J-Rock Quotes

Jeison Rosario: “As soon as I stepped into the ring, I knew he could not hurt me. I knew that my power was affecting him right away. This is a big victory for me and for the whole Dominican Republic. When I lost my last fight I said I will never lose again until I become champion of the world and that’s what happened tonight. I came prepared. I knew before the fight that I was going to win it.

“I have to give a lot of credit to my team. I had a 16-week training camp and that prepared me for this. My life is changed forever and I can support my family in a whole new way. I realized that I was going to win, once I was offered the fight. I knew that if I made the sacrifice, that I would do what I did tonight. I knew it 16 weeks ago.”

Julian “J-Rock” Williams: “Rosario was the better man tonight. It was a great homecoming for my fans and I’m sorry I let them down. What went wrong tonight needs to and will be fixed. We’re going to an immediate rematch and we look forward to returning the favor. I wasn’t surprised he was so good. I told everybody he’s a real fighter. I have to accept it. The cut blurred my vision a little bit but it wasn’t the reason why I lost. He was the better fighter tonight. We’ve got a rematch clause. I’ll see him again soon. I’ll be back.”

Stunner: Rosario dethrones J-Rock for WBA, IBF titles

By John DiSanto at ringside

In the main event at the Liacouras Center on the Temple University campus in North Philly, Jeison Rosario of Santo Domingo, DR, 20-1-1, 14 KOs, shocked West Philly’s Julian Williams, 27-2-1, 16 KOs, scoring a fifth round TKO and stripping Williams of his IBF, WBA and IBO titles.

Rosales Jrock07

Williams comfortably won the first round. However, Rosario cut Williams over the left eye in round two and kicked his game into high gear. The challenger continued to land well for the next few rounds while Williams pawed at his bleeding eye and did his best to battle his way back into the fight. Williams landed several good shots, but Rosario kept coming – and landing. In the fifth round, Rosario landed an extended volley that appeared to weaken the champ. Williams slipped to the canvas and was clearly hurt when he struggled to regain his feet. The trip to the canvas was not ruled a knockdown. When the fight resumed, Rosario jumped right on Williams and continued to land with authority. Finally a vicious right uppercut speared Williams on the chin and another left landed as he fell to the canvas.

Rosales Jrock06

Referee Benjy Esteves stopped the fight as Williams tried to rise. The time of the big upset and spoiled homecoming was 1:37 of round five. This was Williams’ first title defense and Rosario’s first try at a world title. Continue reading “Stunner: Rosario dethrones J-Rock for WBA, IBF titles”

Lightweight Felix “El Diamante” Verdejo (26-1, 16 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Manuel Rey Rojas (18-4, 5 KOs), his first bout since linking up with new trainer Ismael Salas. Workmanlike performance with Verdejo outboxing Rojas for the duration. Scores were 99-91, 97-93, 98-92.

Undercard Results from Philadelphia

By John DiSanto at ringside

Junior middleweight Joey Spencer, 10-0, 7 KOs, Linden, MI, pitched a shutout against Reading, PA’s Erik Spring, 13-4-1, 1 KO, in a 6-rounder. Spencer chased Spring, loading up on every punch he threw, but the fight never really ignited. Spencer just piled up points and kept pressing. Finally in the closing seconds, Spencer whacked Spring with a left hook that staggered him to the ropes. It was the best punch of the fight and the only time Spencer’s touted power was on display on this night. It looked like he had Spring, however time ran out and Spencer had to settle for a points win. The scores were all 60-54. The referee was Eric Dali.

Mexican Jorge Cota, 30-4, 27 KOs, stopped Thomas LaManna, 28-3-1, 10 KOs, Millville, NJ, in round five of their scheduled 10-round junior middleweight contest. Cota controlled the action and administered a thorough beating while it lasted. LaManna landed a few clean shots but it wasn’t enough to stop Cota from chugging forward and landing consistently. As early as round one, LaManna’s face showed wear and tear, and it only got worse as the bout progressed. Finally in round five, LaManna’s corner asked for the stoppage and referee Gary Rosato complied. The time was 1:22 of the fifth.

In a 4-round welterweight fight, Vito Mielnicki of Roseland, NJ, 4-0, 3 KOs, was extended to the limit for the first time as a professional by Preston Wilson of Parkersburg, WV, 6-4-1, 4 KOs.
