Toyoshima stops Abdulhamid, keeps WBO AP 147lb belt

Toyoshima Wins01

WBO#10, WBC#13 Ryota Toyoshima (16-2-1, 10 KOs), 146.5, decisively kept his WBO Asia Pacific welterweight belt as he aggressively took the leadoff, battered Filipino champ Adam Diu Abdulhamid (17-11, 9 KOs), 146.25, and halted him at 0:37 of the fifth round in a scheduled twelve on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. The lefty champ holds both WBO AP and OPBF belts, but he had only the former on the line this night. Toyoshima had the Filipino’s right ear badly swollen with his repeated left shots, and his furious surge in the fatal session prompted the referee’s intervention.

Promoter: Teiken Promotions.

In a WBA welterweight eliminator, the rising star from Grand Prairie, Texas, Vergil Ortiz Jr. (19-0, 19 KOs) put on a show for his hometown fans dropping the awkward and slick Michael McKinson (22-1, 2 KOs) from the United Kingdom in round eight and again in round nine to score the TKO in the scheduled twelve at Dickie’s Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, streamed live on DAZN and promoted by Golden Boy Promotions. Ortiz Jr. retained his WBO International title with the huge win and now his hoping for his long awaited world title shot. Continue reading “Ortiz stops McKinson, KO streak continues”

Super welterweight Blair “The Flair” Cobb (16-1-1, 10 KOs) out of Philadelphia, PA, dropped Dallas’ former world champ Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker (27-3-3, 18 KOs) three times, once in round one and twice in round two to win going away with the unanimous decision 97-90 twice and 96-91 on Saturday night at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

Cobb used quick feet and a powerful left hand to dart in and out of the bigger Hooker all night. Cobb, a southpaw, landed his right hand and then followed up with two more punches as Hooker went down to score the first knockdown in round one. In round two, Cobb scored his second knockdown with a straight left through the guard and later in the round, Cobb landed another left and then a right that put Hooker down for the third time in the fight in as many rounds.

Undercard Results from Fort Worth, Texas

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

In the co-main event, WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine flyweight champ Marlen Esparza (13-1, 1 KO) from Houston, Texas, kept her belts as she won an entertaining, back and forth battle with Eva Guzman (19-2, 11 KOs) from Venezuela over ten rounds at Dickie’s Arena in Fort Worth, Texas and streamed live on DAZN. Scores read 98-92 twice and 99-91 for the UD for Esparza.

Esparza landed a big right-hand just seconds into the fight and stayed on the attack over ten rounds against a game Guzman who picked up the pace in the middle rounds to make Esparza work. And Esparza did just that in the fifth round when she landed combos and displayed great defense with head movement to avoid the punches coming back from Guzman. In round six, Guzman came out aggressive but was thwarted by a counter from Esparza. In round eight, Esparza and Guzman let their hands go in the center of the ring as neither fighter backed down until the final bell.

Light heavyweight Bektemir “Bek the Bully” Melikuziev (10-1, 8 KOs) fighting out of Indio, CA, battered the body of Sladan Janjanin (32-13, 24 KOs) out of Boston, MA, over three rounds, dropping him 3 times, as referee Neal Yong waived it off with Janjanin still standing at 2:18 of the scheduled ten in the DAZN opener at Dickie’s Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, promoted by Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. Melikuziev opened the fight with a hard crushing left hook to the body in round one and somehow Janjanin got up but was still visibly hurt. Over the next two rounds, “Bek the Bully” continued to pounce on the hurt prey as he landed big shots to both the head and again to the body, dropping Janjanin in the second and third rounds before the fight was called off. The Uzbek won a silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics as a middleweight and has rebounded with three wins in a row after his one punch knockout loss to Gabriel Rosado in June 2021.

Conlan schools Marriaga in comeback

Two-time Olympian featherweight Michael “Mick” Conlan (17-1, 8 KOs), outboxed three-time world title challenger Miguel Marriaga (30-6, 26 KOs) over ten rounds on Saturday night at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland. In his return after a brutal KO loss against WBA featherweight world champion Leigh Wood, the speedier Conlan never let power-puncher Marriaga into the fight as Marriaga spent most the night swinging at air. Conlan scored questionable knockdowns in rounds seven and eight. A legit knockdown when Marriaga’s glove touched the canvas in round nine. Marriaga finally woke up in round ten, but it was too little, too late. Scores were 99-88, 99-88, 99-89.

“I had to get rid of a lot of demons tonight,” said Conlan afterward. “Even in the fuc*ing last round, he hit me with a shot. That guy can punch. {He has} 10 more knockouts than I have fights. He hit me with a jab in the first round, and it was like, ‘Oh, this guy actually can bang.’ I had to be careful and use my skills, which I did. In the last round, he caught me with a shot. Listen, I’ve been using my legs all night. I was a bit off the pace. He was pushing it. He landed a good shot. He buckled me a little bit. I felt it, and for me, to kind of come through that and it’s the last round… I got knocked out in my last fight in the last round. I think that says a lot. I’m back, baby. I’m ready for any of them.” Continue reading “Conlan schools Marriaga in comeback”

In a clash for the vacant British super lightweight title, unbeaten KO artist Dalton Smith (12-0, 10 KOs) took apart Sam O’maison (17-4-1, 7 KOs) for a sixth round TKO on Saturday night at the Utilita Arena in Sheffield, England. Smith dropped O’maison in round three, then finished him with two more knockdowns in round six. Total beatdown. Time was 2:55.

Heavyweight Johnny Fisher (6-0, 5 KOs) laid out Michal Reissinger (3-2, 2 KOs) with a right hand at :39 of round two.

Cruiserweight Jordan Thompson (14-0, 11 KOs) survived a tenth round knockdown to take a ten round unanimous decision over Vasil Ducar (11-6-1, 10 KOs). Dull fight until the fireworks in the last few seconds. Scores were 97-92, 96-93, 96-93. Continue reading “Smith smashes O’maison, remains unbeaten”

Absent boxing’s glory days in Sacramento, producer of five world champions, the city is still fight-starved, even for low-budget cards in packed hotel ballrooms.

The enthusiasm was there again Friday night at the DoubleTree Hotel, where super-lightweight Cain Sandoval (6-0), one of three local super-lightweights on the show, remained unbeaten. He defeated more-experienced Daniel Evangelista Jr. of Mexico (20-15-1) in a featured bout via a second-round stoppage — his sixth KO win — following an early knockdown.

BOXXER inks Jack Catterall

Jack Catterall (26-1-0, 13 KOs) has inked a new multi-fight deal with BOXXER. Catterall was controversially denied undisputed super lightweight glory last February when he suffered the only defeat of his career thus far to Josh Taylor. He is now determined to avenge that defeat.

BOXXER CEO Ben Shalom stated “We all want Jack Catterall to have an amazing career off the back of it and get all the opportunities he deserves. Maybe that will be the rematch with Josh Taylor, but whatever happens I think he deserves another world title shot in the very near future.

“I speak to Top Rank and to Josh a fair bit. I know that he wants the fight, but I also know that if there are things getting in the way of a rematch happening, then Jack is not going to hang around.”

Walsh goes the distance for first time

Not only did the first round KO streak of unbeaten super welterweight “King” Callum Walsh (4-0, 3 KOs) end, but he was forced to go the distance for the first time against Benjamin Whittaker (15-9, 3 KO) on Thursday night at the Quiet Cannon inside the Montebello Country Club in Montebello, California. Walsh dropped Whittaker early in the first round and pretty much won every minute of the fight en route to a six round unanimous decision. Scores were 60-53 3x.

In a clash of undefeated featherweights, Omar Trinidad (9-0-1, 7 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Javier Padilla (7-1-1, 5 KOs). Sudden stoppage seemed premature as Padilla still had plenty of fight in him.

Middleweight Cem “The Champ” Kilic (17-1, 11 KOs) had his hands full with aggressive Marco “El Muneco” Delgado, (7-4, 5 KOs), but came away with an eight round unanimous decision. The scores of 80-72, 80-72, 79-73 seemed wide.

Female flyweight Chelsey Anderson (5-0, 2 KOs) outscored Aida “Lady Sparta” Satybaldinova (6-2-1, 2 KOs) to claim the vacant WBC Women’s International belt. Scores were 77-75, 77-75, 78-74.
