Brook cruises to decision, Hurd next?

Former world champion Kell “Special K” Brook (38-2, 26 KOs) was forced to go the full twelve rounds against Michael Zerafa (25-3, 14 KOs) in a WBA super welterweight eliminator on Saturday night at the Sheffield Arena in Sheffield, England. Not an impressive performance by Brook, who never had Zerafa in any trouble. Scores were 118-110, 119-109, 117-111.

With the win, Brook earned a mandatory shot at WBA super welterweight champion Jarrett Hurd.

“I was a bit like Klitschko tonight, the right I just couldn’t let it go!” said Brook, who again called out archrival Amir Khan. Khan, however, is said to be close to landing a fight against WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.

Torres crushes Rodriguez in Albuquerque

By David Finger

Albuquerque New Mexico’s Josh Torres made short work of last minute sub Jesus Alvarez Rodriguez, stopping him in the opening round after just 1:16 of action. The fight, which took place Saturday night at the Manuel Lujan Exhibition Hall at Expo New Mexico, was widely expected to be a difficult one for the New Mexican before the opening bell, and when Rodriguez came in at 155.4 (8.4 pounds over the contracted weight) many wondered if the size advantage might be a substantial factor in the fight. But Torres ultimately had little trouble with the former Mexican prospect. With the win, Torres improves to 19-6-2, 11 KOs while Rodriguez drops to 15-6, 11 KOs.

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

For her first time competing in Washington, DC, multi-time world champion Tori “Sho Nuff” Nelson seemed to have a very simple game plan — to hit her opponent, Sanna Turunen, as hard as she could for as long as she needed to.
Tori N05
If that was her plan, then Nelson, a middleweight from Ashburn, VA, executed the plan to perfection as she went on to a relatively easy 10-round unanimous decision over Turunen of Tuusulam, Finland to regain her Universal Boxing Federation Middleweight title during the main event at the Tricky Entertainment/DC Fight Night card at the Entertainment and Sports Arena in Washington, DC.

Wilder-Fury ends in draw, Wilder retains title

By David Robinett at ringside

It is a boxing adage as old as the sport itself, that power is the great equalizer. That rarely has rung more true than in the WBC heavyweight title fight Saturday night between undefeated champion Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) and undefeated challenger and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) before 17,698 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Wilder Vs Fury
In a fight controlled in large stretches by the inimitable Fury, Wilder parlayed two knockdowns to turn a certain decision loss into a split decision draw. One judge scored the bout 115-111 for Wilder, another 114-112 for Fury, and the third 113-113, allowing Wilder to retain his WBC belt and prompting inevitable and justified calls for a rematch.

Photos: Esther Lin/Showtime

Unified (WBA/IBF) junior middleweight champion Jarrett “Swift” Hurd (23-0, 16 KOs) turned back a spirited challenge from unheralded challenger Jason Welborn (24-7, 7 KOs), providing a sudden end to what was becoming a great fight with a one-punch body shot knockout at 1:55 in round four of scheduled twelve round bout on Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Hurd Welborn
Welborn, who vacated his British middleweight title to drop down in weight to challenge Hurd, was intended to provide competent but limited competition to ease Hurd back into shape from his June rotator cuff surgery. However, the Englishman didn’t appear to have read the script and clearly came to America looking to capture Hurd’s belts. Continue reading “Hurd retains WBA, IBF super welter belts”

Early Results from Los Angeles

By David Robinett and Rocky Morales at ringside

Heavyweight Luis “King Kong” Ortiz (30-1, 26 KOs) earned his second consecutive win since returning to the ring following his knockout loss to Deontay Wilder last March, stopping fringe contender Travis Kauffman (32-3, 23 KOs) at 1:58 of the tenth and final round. The bout was largely a tactical affair, with Kauffman’s ability to keep substantial distance between him and Ortiz making it a jabbing contest for large stretches of the fight. Ortiz, arguably the most feared heavyweight in boxing before getting crushed by Wilder, had trouble luring Kauffman into any prolonged exchanges and as a result had to rely on his jab and movement to try to outpoint Kauffman in many of the rounds.
