Marrufo upsets previously unbeaten Shaw

By Lucas “Lukie” Ketelle

In a shocker, super lightweight Jose Marrufo (13-8-2, 1 KO) of Phoenix, Arizona upset previously unbeaten local San Francisco-based prospect Willie Shaw (9-1, 6 KOs) in an eight-round main event from the San Mateo Events Center in San Mateo, California.

The bout was close with a lot of swings rounds. Shaw landed the harder and cleaner shots, but Marrufo kept up a high punch output from start to finish which seemed to edge him the fight. In the second round, a punch or a head butt caused massive swelling that nearly shut Marrufo’s eye, and stopped the fight. B. St Boxing’s Fred Silva did a terrific job keeping Marrufo in the fight as Marrufo’s eye seemed to be basically shut.

Marrufo threw six to eight punch combinations in close while Shaw looked for two punches at a time with more force behind his shots. The judges scored the bout 76-76, 78-74 and 77-75 for Marrufo. Continue reading “Marrufo upsets previously unbeaten Shaw”

The heavyweights were in action as IBF #1 contender Kubrat Pulev (27-1, 14 KOs) of Bulgaria scored a dramatic seventh round KO over WBA #14 Bogdan Dinu (18-2, 14 KOs) of Romania on Saturday night in the ESPN main event at The Hangar in Costa Mesa, California.
Pulevkodinu
It was a slow start for the big guys but Pulev backed up Dinu with a one-two in the final seconds of the opening round. Working behind the jab in round two, Pulev pushed forward and controlled the round. Pulev began to throw and land the overhand right in round three as he continued to back up Dinu. The Romanian let his hands go in round four and he landed a solid right hand cutting Pulev badly over the left eye.

The blood flowed from Pulev’s left eye in the fifth as Dinu kept his distance boxing. It appeared that the cut was contained at the beginning of the sixth as Pulev came out more confident landing the right hand and backing Dinu but the cut was opened again late in the round. The Bulgarian came out firing in the seventh as he landed the one-two sending Dinu to the canvas. However, Pulev was deducted one point as he hit Dinu while down on a knee. After a delay, Dinu continued to fight and was battered down a second time from a Pulev right. Another Pulev right hand finished the job as Dinu was floored a third time and done. Referee Raul Caiz stopped the fight at 2:40 of the seventh round.

With the win, Pulev remains at the top of the IBF list to challenge WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. Continue reading “IBF #1 heavyweight Pulev cut, KOs Dinu in seven”

In another bout, unbeaten super middleweight Fyodor Czerkaszyn (12-0, 7 KOs) won by second-round TKO over 40-year-old former world champion Kassim Ouma (29-13-1, 18 KOs).

Unbeaten three-division champion, still 23-year-old Japanese enfant terrible Kosei Tanaka (13-0, 7 KOs), 112, successfully kept his WBO flyweight belt as he pounded out a unanimous decision over former WBA light-fly ruler, compatriot Ryoichi Taguchi (27-4-2, 12 KOs), also 112, on Saturday (March 16) over twelve hard-fought rounds in Gifu, Japan.
Tanakataguchi01
Rose Lacend (US) tallied 119-109, Hernando Steidel (Puerto Rico) and Takeo Harada (Japan) both saw it 117-111—all in the defending champ’s favor. Referee was Steve Willis (US) who handled the quick-moving contestants very well.

It was a sensational grudge fight highly anticipated by all fans here, because they, when both were world 108-pound titleholders, were once scheduled to exchange leather in a unification bout in New Year’s Eve in 2017. Continue reading “Tanaka-Taguchi Full Report”

In one of the most anticipated and intriguing fights in a long time, IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr (25-0, 21 KOs) and Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30 KOs) squared off at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night in front of 47,525 boisterous fans. It was also shown live on FOX on PBC Pay-Per-View, the first one for both fighters. If you entered the stadium Team Garcia or had your doubts about Spence Jr., you quickly realized why he is called The Truth.
Fox Sports Pbc Ppv World Welterweight Championship Fight Spence Vs Garcia, Dallas, Usa, 16 March 2019
Spence put on a textbook boxing clinic on the guy many believe is the most fundamentally sound fighter in the sport in Mikey Garcia. Spence Jr. also showed the nonbelievers leading up to the fight that it wasn’t going to be the size that stops the smaller Garcia, but his boxing skills and overall boxing IQ. There’s a reason why Leonard Ellerbe said this week that he gave Floyd Mayweather his best work in sparring and no one is smarter than Mayweather in the squared circle.

The Mexican southpaw continued to punch through Arroyo in round four knocking him down two times as the Puerto Rican visited the canvas four times. Arroyo’s corner did not let him out to fight and the bout was waved off 10 seconds into the fifth.

Arreola crushes Augustin in three

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

In his second fight after a 2-year hiatus, former heavyweight contender Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola (38-5-1, 33 KOs) put on a show at AT&T Stadium in the first pay-per-view bout under the Spence-Garcia mega fight. Arreola came out firing against Jean Pierre Augustin (17-1-1, 12 KOs) in the first round, backing up the southpaw. Augustin countered the active Arreola landing counter straight left hands that bloodied the nose of Arreola. The 2nd round was much of the same as Arreola was on the attack as both guys were warned by referee Neal Young for roughhousing.

But in round 3 it was all Arreola as he buckled Augustin legs with a straight left hand to open the round. Augustin stood on his feet temporarily, but Arreola smelled blood and went in for the kill dropping Augustin who barely got to his feet. Arreola attacked Augustin and put him against the ropes and dropped a flurry of bombs that caused referee Neal Young to jump in and stop the fight.

Delgado landed at will on Roach to the head and body and put him on the canvas, however referee Mark Calo-oy ruled it a slip, although Roach was clearly hurt.

Super welterweight Thomas Hill (8-2, 1 KOs) battled Limberth Ponce over six tough rounds. Hill used a lightning fast jab to keep the smaller Ponce at bay for most of the fight. Ponce looked to counter Hill and tried to land big bombs with both hands, landing occasionally. Ponce appeared to slow down the 2nd half of the fight as Hill wobbled him with a big right hand in the 6th round. In a tough fight to score, the judges ruled a split decision for the busier Hill. Scores read 60-54, 58-56 for Hill and 59-55 for Ponce.

The scores read 40-36, 39-37 twice.

Lightweight Luis Coria (11-2, 6 KOs) of Moreno Valley, California stopped Mexico’s Omar Garcia (6-8, 1 KO). Coria dropped Garcia in the opening round, Garcia was up and continued to fight but Coria’s attack overwhelmed Garcia as the referee stepped in to stop the fight at 53 seconds of round two.

Mast beat the count, but a flurry by Brooks caused the referee to waive it off soon after. The time of stoppage was 1:16 by TKO of the first round. Brooks is a product of R&R Boxing Club and Roger Rodas in Dallas and is signed by Errol Spence’s ManDown Promotions. Brooks has been in camp with Spence for several fights as well as former junior middleweight champ Jermell Charlo.

Evens Pierre fights a draw

By Robert Coster

WBA #6 ligthweight Evens Pierre (30-1-1, 20 KOs) was held to a surprise draw yesterday in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, by local boxer Marco Acevedo (11-4-1, 4 KOs). Pierre boxed elegantly but was somewhat too economical with his punches against Acevedo, a wild, brawling opponent, egged on by the partisan crowd – a fact that might have influenced the local judges. Comments Pierre after the fight: “I think I outboxed him but the crowd was cheering every punch that he threw and missed. This said, I was also the victim of ring rust and the lack of time to train due to the situation in Haiti.” Continue reading “Evens Pierre fights a draw”
