WBO#4, IBF#15 Takeshi Inoue (20-2-1, 12 KOs), 153.75, very barely kept his OPBF, WBO Asia Pacific regional belts as he was held to a majority draw (114-114 twice, 115-113 for Inoue) with Australian southpaw veteran Wade Ryan (22-11-1, 8 KOs), 153.25, over twelve grueling rounds on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. It was such a competitive fight as scored under the open scoring system: after the fourth all 38-38 and after the eighth 76-76, 77-75 twice for the Japanese champ. The sturdy Inoue, who had only lost to Jaime Mungia and Tim Tszyu both abroad, occasionally scored with a single solid shot at a time, while Ryan kept on landing light but busier combinations. The game Australian’s last surge made it even and Inoue failed to score a decision victory. Ryan logically deserves a rematch. Continue reading “Inoue draws with Ryan…”

Bear mauls Sensley in round two

By Damien St.Pierre at ringside

Mississippi heavyweight Travorus “Bear” Barnes (5-0) showed an impressive skill with a 2nd round stoppage of debuting Duke “Nuke” Sensley (0-1) in front of a packed crowd at the Mel Ott Center in Gretna, LA.

Barnes, who outweighed his opponent by over 30lbs landed solid shots while avoiding a wild attack from Sensley in the opening round. Sensley was ruled down in round 1 but only due to his gloves touching the mat, he didn’t look seriously hurt. The final round saw a controlling and disciplined performance from Barnes who ended the night with a flurry of punches after hurting his opponent with a right uppercut. A right uppercut also forced the bout to be stopped by referee Keith Hughes at 1:40 of the 2nd round.

Trainer Chase Dixon said in the post-fight conversation “Everyone is calling to get Bear into camp, but we plan to ease him (Barnes) back in and keep him busy”. Barnes was coming off a 2 plus year layoff. Continue reading “Bear mauls Sensley in round two”

Champ Takada floors fast-moving challenger Isa.

WBA#4 Yuni Takada (14-8-3, 6 KOs), 105, was a huge prefight favorite due to his latest surge, but had a very tough time coping with fleet-footed speedster JBC#1 Shunsuke Isa (13-6-1, 2 KOs), 105, and managed to keep his Japanese minimum belt by a unanimous decision (96-92 twice, 97-91) over ten speedy rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. After the fifth, the open scoring system indicated Takada widely leading on points: all 49-46 in his favor. Takada, handled by three-time world 140lb challenger Lion Furuyama, decked the soft-punching challenger with a solid right in round six. But it was Isa that amazingly displayed a last surge, battered the champ and dropped him with a furious combination in the closing seconds of the final tenth. The champ Takada was barely saved by the bell that came to his rescue. Isa deserves a rematch. Continue reading “WBA #4 Takada barely keeps Japanese 105lb belt”
