Photos: Phil Lambert

MMA veteran Artem Lobov defeated former world champion Paulie Malignaggi via five round unanimous decision in a bare-knuckle match on Saturday night at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall in Tampa. Judges unanimously scored the contest for the aggressive Lobov 48-47. Malignaggi’s longstanding social media “beef” with UFC star Connor McGregor led him to facing McGregor’s stablemate and friend Lobov.
Malignaggi Mma
“I am not sure what the judges were looking at, but I felt like he walked into a lot of my jabs and check left hooks,” said Malignaggi, who may have broken his hand. “Maybe it’s beneath me, but I thought I would give it a shot, give him a shot. Maybe I was wrong. I am 38 years old so I am not interested in campaigning or competing in bare-knuckle against this loss. I kind of liked the adrenaline rush and it was different, but I am done.” Continue reading “Paulie Malignaggi defeated by MMA fighter”

Speedy, skillful and smart Japanese Kazuto Ioka ( 23-2, 14 KOs), 114.75, gained his fourth world belt as he won the WBO 115-pound title by impressively chalking up a fine TKO victory over hard-punching Filipino Aston Palicte (25-3-1, 21 KOs), 115, at 1:46 of the tenth round on Wednesday in Chiba, Japan.

For Ioka, it was a wonderful Miguel Canto-like display of defensive skills and effective counters. Steadily piling up points, Ioka, 30, connected with a beautiful right counter and had Palicte, 28, in great trouble midway in round ten. Kazuto then swarmed over the fading Filipino, battered him with a fusillade of punches and made him look so helpless that referee Kenny Chevalier had a well-received intervention.

Ioka became the first Japanese that acquired world belts in four weight categories—in 105, 108, 112 and 115 pounds.

Unbeaten Japanese Hiroto Kyoguchi (13-0, 9 KOs), 107.73, successfully kept his WBA 108-pound belt as he maintained the pressure, kept stalking previously unbeaten durable Thailander Tanawat Nakoon (11-1, 5 KOs), 107.5, and defeated him by a unanimous decision over twelve monotonous rounds on Wednesday in Chiba, Japan. Carlos Sucre (US) and Carlos Costa (Philippines) both scored 117-111, and Gloria Martinez (US) had it 117-112, all in favor of the defending champ.

The referee was Rafael Ramos (US) who moved as well as both contestants. The prohibitive favorite Hiroto occasionally had him in trouble, but the Thailander showed great durability in withstanding the champ’s onslaught. Kyoguchi, two-division champ, almost toppled Tanawat with a solid right, but couldn’t finish him to bring home the bacon.
