Undercard Results from Providence, Rhode Island

By Jason Marchetti at ringside

Alexis Espino (3-0, 2 KO’s) TKO’d Kerby Saint-Juste (0-1) in the 2nd round of a scheduled 4 rounder at super middleweight. In the 1st, Espino dropped Saint-Juste with left and right hooks as he smothered him on the ropes. In the 2nd, Espino floored his opponent twice, finishing the show with a left hook to the head. The referee immediately waved the fight at 1:59 in round 2.

‘The Bakooka’ Mark DeLuca (24-1, 13 KO’s) defeated ‘The Lumberjack’ Brandon Brewer (23-1-1, 11 KO’s) in a 10 rounder at middleweight. DeLuca’s fast hands and straight left hand took control early in the bout, as he continued his rise from prospect to contender at 154 lbs. Both fighters were bloodied, and seemed to tire a bit, attributing it to taking the fight on short notice. However, DeLuca roused the crowd several times in the contest with 1-2 combinations but couldn’t finish the show as he wanted in knockout fashion. Brewer was certainly tougher than expected, but the judges scored it 99-91, 98-92, and 97-93 all for DeLuca. Continue reading “Undercard Results from Providence, Rhode Island”

WBO #7 Junior Fa dropped, but beats Dominick Guinn

By David Robinett at ringside

In the waning days of the 20th Century, when Bill Clinton was the President of the United States for a few more months and flip phones were all the rage, a 25-year old heavyweight named Dominick Guinn made his professional debut in Las Vegas on a card featuring Andrew Golota. Two decades later, after a career spanning 50 fights, including facing the likes of Michael Grant, Audley Harrison, and James Toney, 44-year old heavyweight Dominick Guinn (37-12-1, 26 KOs) faced off against undefeated New Zealander Junior Fa (17-0, 10 KOs) in a walkout bout late Friday evening in a half-empty ballroom in the California desert.

Those looking for an angle in this matchup could note that, despite 12 losses, Guinn had never previously been stopped and ask whether Fa could become the first to do it. Also of interest was whether the 29-year old Fa could be the next significant heavyweight prospect from New Zealand, like David Tua or Joseph Parker. After ten occasionally interesting rounds, the answer to both of these questions was no. Continue reading “WBO #7 Junior Fa dropped, but beats Dominick Guinn”

IBF lightweight champion Richard Commey (29-2, 26 KOs) successfully defended his title with a hard-fought eighth round stoppage of former WBO lightweight champion Ray Beltran (36-9-1, 22 KOs) in the main event at Pechanga Resort Casino, Temecula, California. Although Commey knocked Beltran down four times in the fight, Beltran came back strong every time, even protesting after the final knockdown when referee Edward Hernandez, Sr. waved it off.
Commey Beltran01
The 38-year old Beltran, a twenty-year veteran who had only lost four times in the last ten years, to fighters with a combined record of 87-1, looked old in round one, with Commey dropping him the first time with a left hook to the chin, followed by a right hook to the temple. Commey knocked Beltran down a second time in the opening stanza with two left hands, followed by a right hook that left Beltran sitting on the middle rope and prompting the referee to rule the ropes were holding him up. However, when Commey went in for the finisher after action resumed, Beltran showed tremendous heart in fighting him off and making it to the bell. Good two-way action in the ensuing rounds, although Commey remained in control. Continue reading “IBF lightweight champ Commey TKOs Beltran”

Photos: Phil Lambert

MMA veteran Artem Lobov defeated former world champion Paulie Malignaggi via five round unanimous decision in a bare-knuckle match on Saturday night at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall in Tampa. Judges unanimously scored the contest for the aggressive Lobov 48-47. Malignaggi’s longstanding social media “beef” with UFC star Connor McGregor led him to facing McGregor’s stablemate and friend Lobov.
Malignaggi Mma
“I am not sure what the judges were looking at, but I felt like he walked into a lot of my jabs and check left hooks,” said Malignaggi, who may have broken his hand. “Maybe it’s beneath me, but I thought I would give it a shot, give him a shot. Maybe I was wrong. I am 38 years old so I am not interested in campaigning or competing in bare-knuckle against this loss. I kind of liked the adrenaline rush and it was different, but I am done.” Continue reading “Paulie Malignaggi defeated by MMA fighter”

Honestly, Zepeda was a pretty tough guy so I didn’t think that they were going to stop it,” said Fundora, who has now registered five straight stoppages. “I thought that it would have taken the ref stopping it, but either way we still got the stoppage and the result we were looking for.” Continue reading “6’7 super welter Fundora remains unbeaten”

Ioka stops Palicte, wins his fourth belt

Speedy, skillful and smart Japanese Kazuto Ioka ( 23-2, 14 KOs), 114.75, gained his fourth world belt as he won the WBO 115-pound title by impressively chalking up a fine TKO victory over hard-punching Filipino Aston Palicte (25-3-1, 21 KOs), 115, at 1:46 of the tenth round on Wednesday in Chiba, Japan.

For Ioka, it was a wonderful Miguel Canto-like display of defensive skills and effective counters. Steadily piling up points, Ioka, 30, connected with a beautiful right counter and had Palicte, 28, in great trouble midway in round ten. Kazuto then swarmed over the fading Filipino, battered him with a fusillade of punches and made him look so helpless that referee Kenny Chevalier had a well-received intervention.

Ioka became the first Japanese that acquired world belts in four weight categories—in 105, 108, 112 and 115 pounds.

Unbeaten Japanese Hiroto Kyoguchi (13-0, 9 KOs), 107.73, successfully kept his WBA 108-pound belt as he maintained the pressure, kept stalking previously unbeaten durable Thailander Tanawat Nakoon (11-1, 5 KOs), 107.5, and defeated him by a unanimous decision over twelve monotonous rounds on Wednesday in Chiba, Japan. Carlos Sucre (US) and Carlos Costa (Philippines) both scored 117-111, and Gloria Martinez (US) had it 117-112, all in favor of the defending champ.
Kyoguchi Tanawat01
The referee was Rafael Ramos (US) who moved as well as both contestants. The prohibitive favorite Hiroto occasionally had him in trouble, but the Thailander showed great durability in withstanding the champ’s onslaught. Kyoguchi, two-division champ, almost toppled Tanawat with a solid right, but couldn’t finish him to bring home the bacon.

In the main event at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, the “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury staked his claim as “the man” in the heavyweight division, defending his lineal heavyweight championship with a prime Roy Jones-esque beatdown of undefeated contender Tom Schwarz, beating his German opponent into submission until referee Kenny Bayles jumped in at the same time Schwarz’s corner threw in the towel at 2:54 of the second round.
Tysonfury Vs Tomschwarz18
Unlike his superb-but-cautious boxing effort against Deontay Wilder, Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs) didn’t appear to have a care in the world against Schwarz (24-1, 16 KOs), starting off as usual by utilizing his length and popping his long jab to keep his opponent safely at bay. But quickly sensing Schwarz didn’t pose the same risk as the Bronze Bomber, Fury starting using both hands as leads, switching stances, and mugging to Schwarz and the crowd.
