Navarrete, Berlanga to top April 24 ESPN card

Looks like Top Rank will venture outside of the bubble on April 24.

ESPN is planning to air a show headlined by WBO featherweight champion Emanuel Navarrete (33-1, 28 KOs) against former title challenger Christopher “Pitufo” Diaz (26-2, 16 KOs). The bout will take place in Kissimmee, Florida, probably at the Osceola Heritage Park Events Center. All Star Boxing is staging a show there tonight with 50% capacity. If TR is feeling ambitious, there is also an 11,400-seat indoor arena at the same complex.

Super middleweight terror Edgar Berlanga, 16-0 with 16 first round knockouts, is slated to face Demond Nicholson (23-3-1, 20 KOs) in the co-feature.

“Contender” winner, former world title challenger, and current WBC #7 at middleweight Brandon “The Cannon” Adams (22-4, 14 KOs) scored a spectacular eighth round KO over previously unbeaten WBC #7, IBF #9 super welterweight Serhii “El Flako” Bohachuk (18-1, 18 KOs) on Thursday night in an outdoor ring erected outside the Felix Pintor Gym in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.

Bohachuk appeared headed to victory when Adams exploded a left hook on his chin and dropped him to end it. At the time of the stoppage Adams was behind 69-63, 68-64, 68-64. Time was 2:47.

“He was a tough guy,” said Adams. “He brought another side out of me that I knew was inside. I had to dig in deep tonight and use all the strength that I had to connect with one of those punches from the cannon. Continue reading “Adams knocks out Bohachuk in eight”

Vera victorious in Biloxi

Middleweight John “The Phenom” Vera Jr. (20-1, 12 KOs) scored a strange first round KO over Cleotis Pendarvis (21-8-2, 9 KOs) on Thursday night at the Biloxi Conference Center in Biloxi, Mississippi. Bizarre ending as Pendarvis jabbed to the body, then suddenly turned away and went to his knees where he was counted out. Looked like a hand injury for Pendarvis. Time was 1:38.

Welterweight Christon Edwards (12-2, 6 KOs) scored a six round unanimous decision over Jonathan Steele (9-7-1, 6 KOs). Good action fight with many exciting exchanges. Judges favored Edwards by scores of 58-56, 58-56, 59-55. Continue reading “Vera victorious in Biloxi”

Super featherweight Bryan Chevalier (15-1, 12 KOs) scored a third round KO over Carlos Zambrano (26-2, 11 KOs) on the Adams-Bohachuk undercard Thursday night in an outdoor ring erected outside the Felix Pintor Gym in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. Chevalier dropped Zambrano in round one, then floored him two times more in round three to end it. Impressive performance. Time was 2:21.

Junior welterweight Danielito Zorrilla (15-0, 11 KOs) won an eight round split technical decision over Ruslan Madiyev (13-2, 5 KOs). Zorrilla got off to a good start. Madiyev was deducted a point for hitting behind the head in round five. Madiyev took over after that. Zorilla went down after another shot behind the head in round eight. He remained on the canvas for several minutes, then indicated he couldn’t continue. The bout went to the cards. Zorrilla was up 77-75, 77-74 on two cards with Madiyev up 76-73 on the third card. The bout was for the NABO title.

Super middleweight Fernando Vargas, Jr., son of El Feroz, moved to 2-0, 2 KOs with a first round blowout of Salome Flores Torres (0-3). Torres down twice.
