WBA middleweight champ Ryota Murata (16-2, 13 KOs), Japan, retained his belt as he kept stalking Canada’s Steven Butler (28-2-1, 24 KOs), 160, and finally caught up with him, dropping him to score a fine TKO victory a 2:45 of the fifth round on Monday in Yokohama, Japan.

Butler fought well, making good use of his hand speed and footwork.  But Murata patiently went forward with his solid left-right combinations and accelerated his attack from the third onward.  The fatal fifth saw Murata explode a vicious attack and sink him with a left hook followed by an effective combination.  The referee Rafael Ramos (US) made a well-timed stoppage and save Butler from further punishment.

37-year-old South African Moruti Mthalane (39-2, 26 KOs), 112, retained his IBF flyweight belt when he finally caught three-division champ Akira Yaegashi (28-7, 16 KOs), 112, Japan, with the referee Mario Gonzalez’s intervention at 2:54 of the ninth round on Monday in Yokohama, Japan.

Utilizing his fast footwork, Yaegashi took the leadoff in earlier rounds. But Mthalane took back the pace and badly hurt the Japanese, 36, with heavier shots to the face and the belly from the seventh on. In the eighth round Moruti had Akira in serious trouble, pinning him to the ropes with a fusillade of punches. It was Mthalane in the fatal ninth that turned loose and almost toppled the groggy challenger, when the third man called a halt.

Prior to the stoppage: Jonathan Davis (Philippines) 76-76, Kazutoshi Yoshida (Japan) 77-76 and Deon Dwarte (South Africa) 78-74, both in favor of Mthalane.

Kenshiro halts Petalcorin, keeps WBC 108lb belt

Unbeaten Japanese footworker Kenshiro Teraji (17-0, 10 KOs), 107.75, kept his WBC light flyweight belt as he scored a quick stoppage of Filipino challenger Randy Petalcorin (31-4-1, 23 KOs), 106.5, dropping him four times at 1:08 of the fourth round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan.

The fleet-footed champ, making his seventh defense, kept moving to-and-fro to frustrate the Filipino southpaw. Teraji, 27, effectively scored with body shots with precision and had him on the deck three times in round three. Petalcorin, 28, had a narrow escape and displayed a do-or-die attack in the next session. But the cool champ averted his desperate retaliation and landed a lethal right to the midsection in return. Down he went again. Referee Frank Garza (US) this time declared a halt to the challenger on the canvas.

The Filipino was a replacement for IBF ruler Felix Alvarado in a scheduled unification title bout with Teraji, but the Nicaraguan pulled himself out because of an abrupt sickness a month before.

Kenshiro predicts, “I’ll break Mr. Yoko Gushiken’s thirteen consecutive defenses (Japanese record of the most defenses) by extending my defense one by one.” He may do so, but time will tell.

Chocolatito Stops Filipino Diocos

By Joe Koizumi

Formerly four-division champ Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (48-2, 40 KOs), 115.75, Nicaragua, decked a fine comeback after a fifteen-month hiatus when he lopsidedly battered Filipino Diomel Diocos (14-6-3, 4 KOs), 115.5, downed him to the ropes and then halted him at 2:20 of the second round beneath a world title tripleheader on Monday in Yokohama, Japan.

Gonzalez started cautiously, but soon took the initiative and accelerated his work rate, whipping the Filipino from all angles. The second saw Chocolatito land a big right to pin him to the ropes with a flurry of punches, when the referee Fukuchi took the mandatory eight count. Though it resumed, the Nicaraguan swarmed over him with the ref’s well-received intervention.

Chocolatito proudly said, “I’ll regain the world belt in 2020 and dedicate it to Nicaragua and Japan.”

Charlo-Harrison walkout bouts

By David Robinett and Rocky Morales at ringside

In the final walkout bout of the evening and the fifteenth bout of the ultra marathon-length card, Jose Balderas (9-0, 3KO) stopped the hapless Nestor Ramos (7-11-1, 3KO) in a scheduled six round bantamweight bout. Technically, Balderas didn’t really stop Ramos but Ramos rather decided not to come out for the fourth round despite not taking any noticeable punishment. Ramos, not wanting to spoil his eight fight losing streak coming into the fight, put up little resistance and upped his losing streak to nine in a row and hopes to make it double digits next time out. Jose helps the Balderas brothers go 1-1 for the night after Karlos’ upset knockout loss earlier in the evening. Time of the stoppage was 3:00 of the third round.

Undercard Results from Ontario, California

By David Robinett, Miguel Maravilla, Rocky Morales at ringside

Rising heavyweight prospect Efe Ajagba (12-0, 10 KOs) overcame a third round knockdown and a courageous opponent in Iago Kiladze (26-5-1, 18 KOs) to remain undefeated, earning a fifth round stoppage in an exciting heavyweight battle that left the crowd buzzing for several minutes afterwards.

Early on it looked like a showcase fight for Ajagba, who represented his native Nigeria in the 2016 Summer Olympics before moving to Texas to work with distinguished trainer Ronnie Shields. Ajagba was moving like it was a sparring session, leisurely walking down Kiladze and hammering him with jabs and straight hands as Kiladze dutifully took his punishment. It was also apparent, though, that Kiladze had significantly faster hands than the lumbering Ajagba, who is a Joshua-esque physical specimen but slow and methodical.

Shocker: Giron KOs U.S. Olympian Balderas

By Rocky Morales at ringside

In a total war, 20-year-old René Téllez Giron (14-1, 8 KOs) pulled off a tremendous upset with a knockout victory over 2016 USA Olympian Karlos Balderas (9-1, 8 KOs). Balderas was in control for the first two rounds using his footwork, height and reach advantage to win the rounds from distance.

In the third round, however, the pitbull like Giron landed a perfect left hook to drop Balderas like a sack of potatoes. Balderas was hurt badly and undeniably saved by referee Ray Corona, who instructed Balderas to come forward only for Balderas to fall backward into the corner. The fight seemingly should have been stopped then and there but Corona gave Balderas more time and then the bell sounded to end the third round.

By David Robinett at ringside

In a surprise result between former interim world champions, 35-year-old Oscar Escandon (26-5, 17 KOs) turned back the clock and knocked out previously undefeated Filipino contender Jhack Tepora (23-1, 17 KOs) with a perfect left hook to the body at 1:30 of the opening stanza of a scheduled ten-round featherweight contest on Saturday night at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California.

Escandon, coming in on a three-fight losing streak, traded punches with Tepora early, then, while on the attack with Tepora along the ropes, ripped a textbook left hook to the body that dropped Tepora onto his knees after a delayed reaction. Tepora, in visible distress, could barely move, let alone beat the count, resulting in the first win for Escandon in nearly four years. Textbook example of “that’s why they fight the fights.”

Tepora entnred the fight rated IBF #3 (with the #1 and #2 spots vacant), WBC #9 and WBC #10.

The 36-year-old Dirrell, who also captured a bronze medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics, was back in the ring for the first time in 21 months, and looked sharp enough for the caliber of opponent he was facing, controlling the action from the opening bell and scoring a straight left knockdown in round three. Cabrera survived a steady beating for nearly two more rounds, before a three-punch combination to the head dropped him again in round five. After another hard shot moments later, Cabrera’s corner threw in the towel. Official time of the stoppage was 1:36 in a scheduled ten-round bout.

It was a short fight but had a lot of heavy exchanges that the much physically bigger Maestre was getting the better of. Near the end of round one, Maestre dropped Chaves, who beat referee Tony Weeks’ 10 count to get out of the round. Chaves used his professional experience by tying Maestre up and throwing back as well for the next few rounds. In round four, things got a bit sloppy with Chaves going down multiple times complaining of a clash of heads and being hit behind the head. No knockdown was called but in the midst of the drama, the corner of Chaves threw in the towel ending the fight. Continue reading “Maestre TKOs Chaves in 4”
