Beppu, Nakagawa win belts

By Joe Koizumi

On the daytime promotion of a dual event at the same Edion Arena Osaka, #1 Yuki Beppu acquired the vacant WBO Asia Pacific welterweight belt as he survived no less than five visits to the deck and finally halted #2 Ryota Yada to score a dramatic come-from-behind stoppage at 2:11 of the tenth round on Sunday (December 8) in Osaka, Japan.

Yada hit the deck early in the give-and-take affair but was in command, dropping the hard-punching opponent time and again. After the ninth, all the judges had Yada identically leading on points: 85-80, but a trick happened with Beppu’s unexpected last surge.

In the main event, unheralded ex-champ Kenta Nakagawa surprisingly dethroned IBF#13 Takayuki Okumoto, making his fourth defense, by scoring an upset decision (98-92 twice, 99-92) over ten sizzling rounds. In a confrontation of fast southpaws Nakagawa was more puzzling and frustrated the defending titlist with his sharp counters and shifty mobility. Okuda deserves a rematch to regain his belt.

Aloyan tops Batista for WBA Gold super flyweight title

Two-time Olympian Mikhail Aloyan (5-1, 0 KOs) became the new WBA Gold super flyweight champion defeating Panamanian native Ronal Batista (12-2, 8 KOs) on Tuesday in Kemerovo, Russia. Scores were 119-108, 119-108 and 117-110. Local boxer Aloyan implanted his authority in the first round when he connected with a left that sent the Batista to the canvas. Although Batista recovered, Aloyan continued to dominate thanks to a good workrate and backward movement to avoid the aggressive Batista. The tenth round was another good round for Aloyan, who almost knocked Batista down a couple of times.

Vi-Tran and Kenny Moore put on another good show in their Best of Tomorrow series. The shows have become destinations for top management and promotional companies to showcase or test their talent. Saturday night at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn, MI the main event featured top prospect, welterweight Janelson Bocachica (15-0, 10 KOs) facing off against Luis Florez (24-15, 20 KOs). Bocachica was never really threatened by Florez. Bocachica was able to work over Florez for 8 rounds. Florez, who adhered to the “too tough for his own good” mentality, took a beating without really showing the judges anything. All three judges scored the bout (80-72, 80-72, 80-72) in favor of Bocachica by UD. Continue reading “Results from Detroit”

Unbeaten heavyweight Arslanbek Makhmudov (10-0, 10 KOs) scored a first round TKO over 39-year-old Peter (38-9, 31 KOs) in a bout for the NABF title. Makhmudov dropped Peter with a big right hand, then got the stop when he sent “The Nigerian Nightmare” reeling into the corner.

Heavyweight Simon Kean (18-1, 17 KOs) overwhelmed 43-year-old Liakhovich (27-8, 17 KOs) in round ten to claim the vacant WBC international silver title. Kean got a referee’s stoppage when he hurt “The White Wolf” a flurry of punches in the final stanza.

Undefeated WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo (30-0, 22 KOs) walked through the resistance of Dennis Hogan (28-3-1, 7 KOs) and stopped him in round seven on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Charlo Hogan
After going the distance in his previous two bouts, Charlo vowed to finish Hogan early and he did. Charlo dropped Hogan with an uppercut early in round four, but Hogan gamely survived Charlo’s furious follow-up. Charlo continued to stalk Hogan and in round seven he floored Hogan again with a lead left hook to end it. Time was :28. Continue reading “WBC middle champ Charlo hammers Hogan”

“He just turned around and stopped,” Eubank said after the fight. “I was going to go jump on him. I guess something happened with his shoulder. There’s nothing to take from the fight. I threw like three or four punches. I was just warming up.”

Iwassa Tampales
Iwasa, who formerly held the full version of this belt, was credited with a knockdown in round three, although replays showed came from a head clash (no instant replay used in NY). Iwasa scored a legit knockdown in round eleven with a straight left. Tapales beat the count, but then wobbled and the bout was waved off. Time was 1:09.

In an all-action rematch for the WBC female interim atomweight championship, Louisa “Bang Bang Lulu” Hawton (10-2, 5 KOs) scored a very exciting ten round unanimous decision over Lorraine Villalobos (4-3, 2 KOs) on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Hawton was very aggressive and brought pressure from the opening bell. Villalobos often connected with the left hook and dropped Hawton with that punch at the end of round six. But Bang Bang Lulu dug deep and responded by being even more aggressive for the rest of the fight. Hawton looked to be a clear winner, however the official scoring (95-94 on all three cards) was ridiculously close.

Hawton previously scored a fifth round TKO over Villalobos one year ago in Los Angeles.

In a bout fought at a 163-pound catch weight, Ronald Ellis (17-1-2, 11 KOs) won by majority decision against WBC #11 middleweight Immanuwel Aleem (18-2-2, 11 KOs). Scores were 97-93, 98-92 for Ellis and 95-95.

Manfredo wins after “terrible” stoppage

In a hastily made fight, comebacking light heavyweight Peter “The Pride of Providence” Manfredo Jr. (42-7-2, 23 KOs) scored a bizarre and unsatisfying fourth round TKO over Milton Nunez (37-23-1, 32 KOs) on Saturday night inside Foxwoods Resort Casino’s historic Fox Theater in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

The bout was abruptly and inexplicably halted by Nunez’ corner much to the surprise of both Nunez and Manfredo. Time was 1:39. It was a competitive fight up to that point with Manfredo rebounding after being rocked and arguably knocked down in round one. Manfredo called the stoppage “terrible.”

The 38-year-old former “Contender: Season One” star and two-time world title challenger Manfredo returned from a three-and-a-half-year retirement with a 79 second KO just two weeks ago. Continue reading “Manfredo wins after “terrible” stoppage”

Hunter, the son of former heavyweight contender of the 90s Mike “The Bounty” Hunter, tried to bum rush Povetkinin in round one. The 40-year-old withstood the attack and rocked Hunter in round five. Hunter hurt Povetkin in round eleven but Povetkin took round twelve. Scores were 115-113 Povetkin, 115-113 Hunter, 114-114.

Newly vindicated WBC #1 heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over 39-year-old former world title challenger Mariusz Wach (35-6, 19 KOs).

Whyte was suspended by the WBC after being flagged by UKAD for banned substances in his system six months ago. The test result was voided due to suspected contamination.

Noynay tech draws with Ogawa, barely keeps WBO ap 130lb belt

WBO#6 Filipino southpaw Joe Noynay (18-2-2, 7 KOs), 130, barely kept his WBO Asia Pacific 130-pound belt as he was held to a technical draw with WBO#11 Japanese hard-puncher Kenichi Ogawa (24-1-1, 18 KOs), 129.25, at 2:07 of the sixth round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.  They often made head-collisions from the start with Noynay bleeding from a cut at the left eyebrow and Ogawa also from a gash at the almost same place.  The puzzling lefty Noynay was in command in the first round, but the more muscular Ogawa seemingly took the initiative with solid left hooks following straight rights to the Filipino thereafter.  The fifth, however, saw them collide accidentally again with Noynay so badly bleeding that the ring physician advised the ref Someya to call a halt.  Iida (Japan) saw the close affair 49-46 for Ogawa, Tapdasan (Philippines) 48-47 for Noynay and Sugiyama (Japan) 48-48, making it a technical decision split draw.  They may deserve a rematch since Ogawa was accelerating his rhythm and work rate as the contest progressed.

Unheralded underdog, JBC#8 Kosuke Saka (20-5, 17 KOs) impressively dethroned WBO#3 Japanese super-father champ Masaru Sueyoshi (19-2-1, 11 KOs) by a stunning stoppage at 1:30 of the sixth round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Sueyoshi, a taller titlist making his fifth defense, wasn’t sharp and speedy as usual only to yield the initiative to the onrushing challenger from the outset. After the first half, the open scoring system indicated the unexpected challenger leading: 50-45 twice and 49-46. The sixth saw Saka turn aggressive, connecting solid and effective combinations to drop Sueyoshi onto the ropes, when the Ghanan referee Biney Martin promptly declared a halt to save the ex-champ.

Edward Davis Arena in Salem, West Virginia. 6’7, 250 pounds, Martz used his superior size and reach to keep Carmack on the outside with a stiff jab early before landing a vicious right hand to the body dropping Carmack midway into the opening stanza. Once Carmack arose on shaky legs, referee Cranston Johnson halted the onslaught at 1:51 of the first round.

In the co-feature, heavyweight Keith Barr (20-12, 8 KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over Anthony Trotter (3-7). Scores were 39-37 on all cards. No knockdowns were recorded. Continue reading “Martz crushes Carmack”
