In a super welterweight crossroads fight between veteran fan-favorites, Sam Eggington (29-7, 18 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over Ashley Theophane (50-9-1, 19 KOs) on Friday night behind-closed-doors at the Fly By Nite purpose built TV production facility in Redditch, England. Eggington put the pressure on from the get-go, dropping Theophane in round two. A crushing Eggington right hand to the liver in round six sent Theophane to the canvas to end it.

“I knew Theophane would be tricky from the start and hard to it,” said Eggington. “It was hard to get through at first and I just had to keep the pressure on and breaking down and I knew I’d get to him eventually…I’m not shouting anyone out, I’ll fight anyone put in front of me and I can’t wait for a big 2021.”

Hard-punching prospect, Zirolian Riku (12-3, 11 KOs), 132.5, displayed a one-punch stoppage when he landed a looping left hook that dropped Takuya Ota (8-4-1, 6 KOs), 132.25, with such a thud that the ref promptly declared a halt to save the loser from further punishment at only 0:39 of the opening session in a scheduled eight on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan.

The haymaker was a very devastating shot that stunned the crowd as well as the third man who quickly made a well-timed stoppage. Continue reading “Zirolian halts Ota in 39 seconds”

Unheralded JBC unranked Kento Yabusaki (8-4-1, 5 KOs), 111 3/4, scored an upset decision over former OPBF 108-pound and ex-Japanese 105-pound titlist Shin Ono (24-11-3, 6 KOs), 112, over eight heats on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. In a contest of southpaws, Yabusaki decked the 37-year-old veteran Ono with a smashing left in the second and put on an aggressive performance, though he, 23, was often grabbed by Ono, a twice world challenger, who attempted to avert the youngster’s aggression. The sixth saw Yabusaki open a gash over Ono’s right optic with a legal shot, which obviously became a nuisance for the veteran southpaw. The winner will enter the JBC’s ratings thanks to his unexpected triumph. Continue reading “Yabusaki upsets ex-OPBF champ Ono”

In one of the most anticipated matchups in boxing in quite some time, unified welterweight champ and owner of the IBF and WBC strap, Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr.(27-0, 21 KOs) battled two-division world champ Danny “Swift” Garcia (36-3, 21 KOs), in his first fight since his horrific single car accident early morning last October in his hometown of Dallas. The fight was staged in front of a pro-Spence crowd at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, also the home of the Dallas Cowboys and shown live on Fox Sports PBC pay-per-view.

Spence, showed once again why he is still “The Truth” as he came right after Garcia from the opening bell and put on textbook performance to retain his titles with a fairly easy unanimous decision win by scores of  116-112 twice and 117-111.

WBC/IBF welterweight champion Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. (27-0, 21 KOs) retained his titles with a twelve round unanimous decision over Danny “Swift” Garcia (36-3, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. Returning after a brush with death in a high-speed car crash more than a year ago, Spence pretty much controlled the fight, winning by scores of 116-112, 116-112, 117-111.

Spence outlanded Garcia 187-117, each landed 103 power shots, but Spence outjabbed Garcia 84-14.

Errol Spence Jr: “The moment is surreal. Coming back from the accident, I feel like I looked pretty good tonight. All training camp I felt good. I told people I didn’t want a tuneup fight. I proved to everyone that I’m the best 147-pound fighter in the world. Danny Garcia pushed me to the limit, especially in training camp. I’ve watched him fight since he was an amateur. I knew he was a great champion and I had to be 100% ready.”

Danny Garcia: “He was the better man tonight. No excuses. I fought a hard and tough fight. He had a good jab and that was the key to the fight. He was also a bit busier than me…I just have to rebuild and see what we do next.”

Fundora, Josesito, Ramirez stop foes

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

In a super welterweight WBA world title eliminator, the “Towering Inferno” Sebastian Fundora (16-0-1, 11 KOs) from Coachella, CA at almost 6’6” used an array of uppercuts, hooks and straight shots to annihilate late replacement Habib Ahmed (27-2-1, 18 KOs) out of Accra, Ghana, on Saturday night in front of a raucous crowd at AT&T Stadium on the Spence-Garcia undercard. Fundora was originally scheduled to fight Jorge Cota. Once Fundora buckled the knees of Ahmed early in the first round with an uppercut, it was pretty much target practice for him. After another onslaught in round 2, referee Laurence Cole waived it off at 1:30 to earn the TKO victory of the scheduled 12. The tall, slender Fundora owned a 6 inch height advantage over the veteran Ahmed, although it appeared to be much more. The affable Fundora told PBC’s Jordan Plant ringside after the fight he wouldn’t mind fighting the likes of Julian Williams next, but first he has Christmas shopping to finish.

Welterweight “The Riverside Rocky” Josesito Lopez (38-8, 21 KOs) from Riverside, CA put on a dominating performance against Francisco Santana (25-9-1, 12 KOs) out of Santa Barbara, CA. Lopez dropped Santana in the first round with a right hook after shots to the body, again in rounds nine and tenth to score the TKO victory at 1:22 of the final round. Lopez was in control the whole way, although he was cautious at times as Santana swung for the fences himself. Lopez continues to get big fights with his fan-friendly style and with world-class trainer Robert Garcia in his corner. Lopez told Fightnews in an exclusive interview before the fight that he hopes to get another world title shot before he retires. He should be on his way with the big win in Dallas.

In a WBA world title eliminator, featherweight Eduardo Ramirez (24-2-3, 11 KOs) out of Los Mochis, Mexico, flattened Miguel Flores (24-4, 12 KOs) from Dallas with a vicious right hook in round 5 that landed squarely on the jaw of Flores and ended the fight. Ramirez set up the “kill” shot with a straight left that landed on the left shoulder of Flores. Flores somehow got to his feet and referee Laurence Cole began his count, but after a quick wobble, Cole rightly waved it off. Southpaw Ramirez controlled the first few rounds of the fight landing his right, left combinations as Flores did his best to counter. Ramirez, though, put an end to the fight at 20 seconds of round five with his big, one punch knockout. Flores picked up Ramirez to show good sportsmanship after the loss.

Unbeaten WBO super middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (30-0, 14 KOs) outboxed five-time world title challenger Martin Murray (39-6-1, 17 KOs) over twelve one-sided rounds on Friday night at the SSE Arena in London.

“I wasn’t really happy with that performance,” Saunders told Matchroom after the fight. “I’m not taking anything away from Martin, he came with a good game plan. He got through it. He tucked up and survived well. I can only be a bit critical of myself because I had a bit of ring rust. My jab was there but there was just that bit of snap missing.

Tyson, Jones put on exciting boxing exhibition

Tysonjonesfight

In an exhibition between ring legends, Mike Tyson, 54, and Roy Jones Jr., 51, entertained a PPV audience on Saturday night behind closed doors at Staples Center in Los Angeles. It was eight two-minute rounds of aggressive sparring. Tyson appeared to be in better shape. He threw mostly body shots that made a loud cracking sound when they landed. Jones landed a few of his trademark pot shots, but also spent a lot of time holding.

According to WBC remote scoring by Christy Martin, Chad Dawson, and Vinny Paz, the bout was “a draw.” No scores were announced. We had Tyson winning easily. Some sportsbooks accepted betting on the fight.

UPDATE: WBC remote scoring was Chad Dawson 76-76, Christy Martin 79-73 for Tyson, Vinny Paz 80-76 for Jones. Christy got it right. The other two cards were embarrassing, especially Paz. He scored four rounds even and gave the other four to Jones!!

After the fight, Tyson said he planned to do more of these events.
