38-year-old former four-division champion Nonito Donaire (41-6, 27 KOs) became the oldest man to win a bantamweight title by knocking out 3:1 favorite and previously unbeaten WBC bantamweight champion Nordine Oubaali (17-1, 12 KOs) on Saturday night the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

Starting off with the jab, Oubaali and Donaire figured each other out. Oubaali began to let his hands go in the second but Donaire swung wildly as the champ proceeded cautiously. Going toe to toe in the third, a huge left hook by Donaire dropped Oubaali. He got up, but another left hook found its mark once again dropping Oubaali face-first to finish the round. Donaire then finished Oubaali in the fourth round dropping him for a third time with a left hook, right uppercut combination. Referee Jack Reiss waved off the bout at 1:52 of the fourth.

Japan-based Brazilian JBC#4 Cristiano Aoqui (16-8-2, 11 KOs), 140, scored an upset decision (77-74 twice, 77-76) over JBC#2 Akihiro Kondo (32-10-2, 18 KOs), 139.75, over eight see-saw rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. Aoqui’s opening attack prevailed over Kondo’s experience as he floored the veteran with a solid right following a left hook in round two. Kondo, former national champ who previously failed to win the vacant IBF 140-pound belt, losing to Sergey Lipinets on points in Brooklyn in November 2017, came back hard with heavy body shots, but Aoqui responded with body bombardments to make it a give-and-take affair. His aggressiveness carried Aoqui to a well-received victory.

Promoter: Ichiriki Promotions.

We have an undisputed super lightweight champion and his name is Josh Taylor. In a unification fight for all the 140lb belts, WBA/IBF champion Josh Taylor (18-0, 13 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over WBC/WBO king Jose Ramirez (26-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night inside The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

Good two-way action early. Taylor was cut over the left eye in round five. The bout turned when Taylor dropped Ramirez in round six with a straight left hand and again in round seven with a left uppercut. Ramirez was hurt but survived.

Taylor backed off on the gas pedal after that, allowing Ramirez to shade most of the late rounds to pull close. Scores were 114-112 3x. The two knockdowns were the difference.

With the win, Taylor became the sixth man in the four-belt era to attain undisputed status.

Shimizu Connects With A Overhand Southpaw Left To Mori

Who says we can see better matchups under the COVID-19 pandemic than previously? No way. It’s just because of our government’s regulation to keep foreign athletes/boxers from freely entering Japan and our promoters have been compelled to book fights of competitive compatriots.

A good example was the unification bout of the regional featherweight champs. OPBF champ and 2012 Olympic bronze medalist Satoshi Shimizu (10-1, 9 KOs), 125.5, outhustled and outscored WBO Asia Pacific ruler Musashi Mori (12-1, 7 KOs), 125.75, to win a unanimous nod (116-112, 118-110 twice) over twelve all-southpaw rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.

In the main event at the world-famous Mesquite Rodeo Arena, Dallas’ lightweight Alexis Del Bosque (17-5-1, 9 KOs) and Pedro Vicente (7-2-1, 2 KOs) hailing out of Puerto Rico battled to an entertaining split draw over eight rounds.

Texas, particularly Dallas-Fort Worth, became a hotbed for big-time boxing as it has hosted Garcia-Campbell, Chocolatito-Estrada 2, Ortiz-Hooker, Spence-Garcia, and Canelo-Saunders over the last several months during the year of COVID.

But local fan favorite lightweight Del Bosque nicknamed “El Perro” and Vicente showed that smaller shows are alive and well in Dallas as they did not disappoint the raucous crowd on Friday night. Continue reading “Del Bosque-Vicente ends in draw”
