In an IBF heavyweight title elimination bout, hometown favorite Kubrat Pulev (26-1, 13 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over Hughie Fury (21-2, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Arena Armeec in Sofia, Bulgaria. An ugly bout with lots of holding. An old cut reopened above the left eye of Fury in round two. The 37-year-old Pulev pressed the action and generally landed the cleaner punches. Fury’s best moment came in round eight when he rocked Pulev momentarily with a right hand, but Pulev dominated the fight down the stretch. Scores were 117-111, 118-110, 115-113.

Tyner punishes Chambliss, gets third round TKO

By Brad Snyder-The Undercard
Photos by Bob Ryder

This fight was ugly from the start with bad blood boiling over from previous social media posts and broken relationships. Somewhere welterweight Cortez Chambliss (4-1, 4 KOs) got caught in the middle, and even worse, in the ring. Lanardo Tyner (35-13-2, 22 KOs) had some sort of relationship with Steve Zepke, Chambliss’ manager. This launched into a personal feud, which didn’t bold well for the boxing prospect Chambliss.
Tyner Chambliss2
At the start, both fighters looked relaxed and ready for the battle. Tyner, with a 45-fight and 13-year experience advantage over Chambliss, caught Cortez early with what appeared to be a knockout and had veteran Referee Sam Williams appear to waive off the fight. There was so much confusion that Tyner was in the ropes celebrating and corners had jumped on the canvas. The fight continued without a clear explanation.

Makhense stops Bholo for Gauteng title

By Ron Jackson

Promising young junior welterweight Jabulani Makhense won the vacant Gauteng 140lb title with relative ease when he stopped the more experienced Gift Bholo in the seventh round in front of a raucous crowd at Emperors Palace near Kempton Park on Sunday afternoon. The well-conditioned Makhense (63.46kg) came out fast at the opening bell and coolly mastered the distance throughout the first three rounds scoring with left and right combinations to the head and body. This was the same pattern from round four to six with the gutsy and bloodied Bholo (61.86kg) not winning a round.

Former 154lb world champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (26-0, 16 KOs) claimed the vacant WBO middleweight title with a dominant twelve round unanimous decision over Walter Kautondokwa (17-1, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Andrade dropped Kautondokwa four times in the first 4 rounds in stunning fashion.
Andrade Victorious03
The taller, heavier, much larger Kautondokwa was slow to move and react and Andrade took advantage early, landing flush left power shots to the head.

During the first knockdown, Andrade’s two-punch combo caused Kautondokwa to fall awkwardly, that Andrade kept swinging and hit him while he was on the canvas in which no foul was called. Continue reading “Andrade beats Kautondokwa for WBO 160lb title”

“Who’s the puncher, now?!” said Farmer after the fight and then the Philadelphia champion called for a unification bout with the other American juniorr lightweight champion, WBA Title Holder, Gervonta Davis (20-0, 19 KO’s).

Rodriguez Moloney04
Rodriguez was very sharp and often beat the aggressive Moloney to the punch early on. Moloney rallied furiously down the stretch but it was too little too late. Scores were 115-113 Moloney, 115-113, 115-113 Rodriguez. Great fight. Next up for Rodriguez is WBA champ Naoya Inoue, who was at ringside.

Taylor, Kid Galahad victorious in Boston

By Jason Marchetti at ringside

Ireland’s Olympic Gold Medalist Katie Taylor (11-0, 5, KO’s) totally dominated Cindy Serrano (27-6-3, 10 KO’s) over 10 rounds at lightweight. Taylor threw a combination, created space, cut off the ring, then threw another 1-2 combination. The equation worked well for her as Serrano could never mount any effective offense during the entire bout. Taylor made her opponent eat leather quite a bit as her impressive accuracy caught Serrano directly on the chin on many occasions. Serrano, to her credit, hung in there and didn’t quit despite having little chance of winning. Taylor retains her WBA and IBF Female Lightweight Titles. Final scores were unanimous on all 3 cards, 100-90

In an IBF featherweight title eliminator, Kid Galahad (25-0, 15 KO’s) outlasted Toka Kahn-Clary (25-2, 17 KO’s) by unanimous decision over 12 rounds. Galahad was busier than Kahn-Clary most of the night, neither fighters ever putting the other in any trouble. Galahad scored on the inside and seemed to press the action a bit more in which the judges agreed. Kahn-Clary was perhaps a victim of his southpaw stance by getting his foot stepped on throughout the contest. To Galahad’s credit, his defense didn’t allow Kahn-Clary to land any of his signature combinations and was able to keep him at bay outside of his striking range. Galahad scored through Kahn- Clary’s guard enough to earn the final scores, 118-110 (twice) and 115-113. Galahad will now fight the winner of Josh Warrington versus Carl Frampton in December.

Quigley beats Hernandez, remains unbeaten

By David Robinett at ringside

In the main event of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, Jason Quigley (15-0, 11 KOs) retained his NABF middleweight title with an entertaining ten-round decision over game but faded former welterweight title challenger Freddy Hernandez (34-10, 22 KOs). Scores for the bout were 98-92, 98-92, 99-91.

In some respects, this was a disappointing performance by Quigley, who was never in any danger of losing, but was forced to go ten hard rounds with a 39-year old who was 4-7 in his last 11 fights coming in, with three of those seven losses by knockout. Nevertheless, Quigley controlled the action mainly behind his jab, relying almost exclusively on it in the early rounds, circling away from Hernandez and sticking him repeatedly as the well-seasoned veteran came forward.

Results from Salgotarjan, Hungary

Super featherweight Zoltán Kovács (a former national and WBO European champion) won by technical decision in the seventh round against tough (and dirty) Rafael Hernandez from Venezuela. The bout was stopped due to a cut from an unintentional headbutt in the second round. The fight was very competitive even though Hernandez was deducted a point for low blows and was warned for using his head. Kovacs moves to 22-5-1, 7 KOs. Hernandez falls to 28-11-2, 22 KOs.

The Hungarian cruiser title clash between Jozsef Darmos (11-2-3, 9 KOs) and Tamás Toth (9-6-5, 5 KOs) also ended also with a technical decision verdict (DRAW) in the 9th round, which was also caused by an unintentional head clash.
