Hometown Showdown

By Brad Snyder-The Undercard

For Promoter Lisa Vondrell and Matchmaker Aaron Rodriguez with Apex Boxing Promotions, the last few months had been a bad adventure. Their Saturday night boxing show was originally scheduled for June 1, 2019. A spillway had overflowed. In it’s wrecking path, was the original venue, Grand Lakeside Pub and Catering. The building had lake water filling up the stairwells with fish floating throughout the venue. What would have deterred most from moving on with the card, they pushed through to continue on with the fights at a new venue, the Junior Fair Building on the Mercer Company Fairgrounds.

But three weeks ago, their main event was canceled due to injury. Then Friday, at the weigh-ins, the state of Ohio disapproved a contestant for being well over the weight limit in his designated weight class. Even with all the turmoil and adversaries they faced, Apex Boxing Promotions was able to persevere and still have a sellout with Celina, Ohio coming out to support.

Puello’s victory was hard fought as Alonso did well in the early rounds, attacking in spurts with combinations. By the fifth round, however, Puello started to gradually take over command of the bout with a hard jab and a well-timed right cross. He burst open Alonso’s lip in the 10th round. The three judges voted 115-113. Fightnews saw it 116-112. Continue reading “Alberto Puello wins WBA interim super light belt”

Mishiro halts Takenaka, keeps OPBF 130lb belt

Unbeaten prospect, OPBF 130-pound champ Hironori Mishiro (8-0-1, 3 KOs), 129.75, successfully kept his OPBF super-featherweight belt as he kept effectively jabbing all night, utilized a three-punch combo to weaken highly regarded ex-OPBF 126-pound ruler Ryo Takenaka (18-6-1, 11 KOs), 130, and finally sank him with a flurry of punches to score a knockout at 1:56 of the eighth round in a scheduled competitive twelve on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.
Mishiro Takenaka01
In the main event Mishiro, formerly an amateur Paul Pender stylist, showed his progress in offence and defense, and battered Takenaka, ten years his senior at 34, from pillar to post, badly dropping to the deck. His corner tossed in the towel to have it registered as knockout, since the JBC rules that a towel-tossing during the referee’s counting have it a KOAA loss, not a TKO. Having scored his third defense, Mishiro seems to have a bright future with his good height, tight defense and accurate sharpshooting.

Suzuki defeats Saito, wins Japanese 118lb belt

The new champion’s face looked like a loser rather than a victor—with the grotesquely swollen cheek. Top ranked Yusuke Suzuki (11-4, 7 KOs), 117.75, captured the Japanese national bantamweight belt as he made a good start, swept the first three sessions with ease, withstood furious retaliations of defending champ Yuta Saito (12-10-3, 9 KOs), 117.75, and showed his surge in later rounds, winning a unanimously verdict (all 97-93) over gory and give-and-take ten on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.

It was the second title go of a triple main event, and the prefight favorite Saito revealed that he wasn’t so good at coping with the southpaw challenger, who had the upper hand nearly throughout the contest.

In a battle of unbeaten 140lb champions, WBC champ Jose Ramirez proved he was up for the Texas-size challenge and knocked out the WBO titleholder “Mighty Mo” Maurice Hooker in the sixth round in his hometown of Dallas at the College Event Center at the University of Texas at Arlington.
Ramirez Hooker Sumio
Ramirez came out from the opening bell and took the fight to Hooker, who tried to keep the aggressive Ramirez at bay with his 80 inch reach. Ramirez landed a glancing shot as Hooker was going backwards off-balance, but appeared to step on Hooker’s foot causing Hooker to hit the canvas. Hooker got up instantly and protested the call to referee Mark Nelson but to no avail. Continue reading “Ramirez stops Hooker, unifies WBC/WBO titles”

Farmer Frenois
Farmer was too slick for the fellow southpaw Frenois as he mixed up his attack with shots to the body and head all night. Frenois tried his best to make it a fight, but would often miss or end up hitting the back of Farmer as Farmer ducked under the shot. Farmer was sporting bright orange trunks with the late, great Pernell Whitaker’s name inscribed on the back. Farmer did his best to emulate Whitaker’s defense, considered one of the greatest defensive fighters ever, by ducking and dodging Frenois punches all night.

Super bantamweight’s Traimaine Williams (19-0, 6 KOs) out New Haven, Connecticut and Yenifel Vicente (35-4-2, 27 KOs) from Miami, Florida, took some time to warm up, but once it did, all hell broke loose, as they fought for the vacant NABO and USBA title.

Father Time continues to creep closer and closer to Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao, leading up to the inevitable end of his reign as an elite fighter. But not today. The incomparable Senator from the Philippines is clearly showing some wear in the tread, but still had enough in the tank to earn a well-deserved split decision over the previously undefeated WBA welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman.
Pacquiao Thurman Sumio01
Thurman (29-1, 22 KOs) had predicted in the lead-up to the fight that Pacquiao’s time had passed and he was no longer able to hang with the best of the division. But Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) gave notice in the opening round that Thurman would pay for his lack of respect, dropping “One Time” with a left to the body, right to the head that sent the pro-Manny crowd into a frenzy.
