Dominican boxing fans were provided on Saturday with an entertaining international card with three regional titles on the line.

In the first half of the fight, Frometa had problems with the cagey visitor but he took command of the action by the fifth round. The fight was a rather slow-paced chess match. The three local judges scored it 99-91 for Frometa. Fightnews.com® had it 97-93 for Frometa.

When you say Erick DeLeon’s name in Detroit, you put a little respect behind it. The fact is he is talked about often. Erick has been silent during an injury-plagued and Covid boxing landscape for three years. But in the gyms, at the bars, and at entertainment venues when you speak of Erick DeLeon, you put a little respect behind it.

Saturday night was a homecoming. The legend of a 3-time National Golden Glove champion coming home. A star, whose light was so bright in the beginning, not many locals have been able to see him fight live as a professional. A question whispered at shows was, “Where is Erick DeLeon? And when does he fight next?” The answer, he never left and April 2, 2022. Continue reading “DeLeon destroys Herrera in comeback”

“There’s no one else in the way between me and Claressa, so it’s me and her in the summer now,” said Marshall. “I know Claressa can’t handle my power. I believe I can beat her. It’s got to happen here in the Northeast.”

Shields, who was at ringside, stated, “I said she’d do that to Femke Hermans but I’m not Femke Hermans, I’m not Hannah Rankin, I’m not any of those girls she’s fought. If that’s what I’ve got to look forward to, it’s going to be a wipeout…I’m 10 times faster than Femke!” Continue reading “Marshall annihilates Hermans, Shields next”

Mikey Garcia-conqueror Sandor Martin (40-2, 13 KOs) outboxed former contender Jose Felix (39-6-1, 30 KOs) over ten one-sided rounds for the vacant WBA International super lightweight title on Friday night at the Palau Olímpic Vall d’Hebron in Barcelona, Spain. In his first fight since pulling off last October’s 2021 upset of the year, Martin was in total control against the faded Felix, winning 100-90, 100-90, 99-91.

In a slugfest, unbeaten super flyweight and 2016 Olympian Samuel Carmona (7-0, 4 KOs) had all he could handle against former world title challenger Joel Cordova (13-6-2, 3 KOs). Good action all the way. Cordova relentlessly punished Carmona in round eight. Carmona dropped Cordova in round nine but was then openly holding and running from Cordova after that. The scores after ten rounds were 97-93, 96-93, 96-94 for Carmona, which seemed like a little home cooking’.

Light heavyweight Ricards Bolotniks (19-6-1, 8 KOs) hammered out an eight round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten 2016 Olympian Hrvoje Sep (11-1, 8 KOs). Bolotniks, who recently gave highly regarded Joshua Buatsi a tough fight, won by scores of 78-75, 78-75, 77-75.

In a clash of unbeaten middleweights, Jhon Jader Obregon (10-0, 4 KOs) won an eight round unanimous decision over Kyle Lomotey (10-1, 2 KOs). Scores were 80-71, 78-73, 77-73. Lomotey deducted a point in round five.

Wbcstraw

WBC strawweight champion Panya Pradabsri (38-1, 23 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over former long time champion Wanheng Menayothin (55-2, 19 KOs) in their rematch on Tuesday at the City Hall Ground in Nakhon Sawan, Thailand. The bout was a slugfest. 36-year-old Wanheng was very aggressive and Pradabsri, 31, was willing to trade. After four rounds, WBC open scoring showed 39-37 Wanheng, 38-38, 38-38. The back and forth action continued with Pradabsri pulling ahead 77-75, 78-74, 78-74 after eight. Wanheng drove Pradabsri into the ropes in round nine, not called a knockdown. Wanheng desperately tried to make up the gap down the stretch but came up short. Scores were 117-111 across the board.

The 36-year-old Menayothin, also known as Chayaphon Moonsri, ran his ledger to 54-0 to best Floyd Mayweather’s 50-0 career mark only to relinquish the record for an unbeaten career back to Floyd by losing to Pradabsri in November 2020.

Jackson Chauke retains SA title with a draw

By Ron Jackson

Jackson Chauke retained the South African flyweight title on a majority 12 round draw against Phumelela Cafu in an excellent toe-to-toe encounter at the Premier Hotel and International Convention Centre in East London on Sunday afternoon. The scores were 115-113 for Cafu and 114-114 twice. The home fighter Chauke landed most of the cleaner punches throughout the fight.

It was announced from the ring that Cafu, 23, was the new champion and he was presented with the South African championship belt. However, this was incorrect as with a majority draw Chauke, 36, retains the title.

The sad part of the whole affair was that none of the people or officials at ringside picked up on the incorrect decision and that Cafu, who put up an excellent performance, will wake up on Monday morning and find out that he was no longer the champion.

Unbeaten featherweight Otabek Khmatov (10-0, 9 KOs) came in the fight Saturday night with a bad knee, but completely shut down Andranik Grigorian (20-2, 10 KOs) by scoring a ten round unanimous decision win in a WBA 126lb title eliminator bout at the sold-out Caribre Royal Orlando Florida for the launching of Entrobox Bally’s Fight Night – BoxLab Promotions.

Khmatov went into the book of Winky Wright and just out-jabbed Grigorian on night long, working him with head and multiple body shots. Grigorian somehow just kept on walking into shots throughout the contest. Judges’ scores were 118-110, 119-109 (2x).

Super middleweight Yamaguchi Falcao (21-1, 9 KOs) from Espírito Santo, Brazil became the NABA Gold champion after scoring a ten round unanimous decision over a very tough customer in Damian Bonelli (24-11, 20 KOs) from Buenos, Aires, Argentina.

In an IBF lightweight eliminator, unbeaten IBF #3 ranked Gustavo Daniel Lemos (27-0, 18 KOs) of Argentina defeated former world champion and #4 ranked Lee Selby (28-4, 9 KOs) of the United Kingdom by fifth round TKO.

The tone of the fight would continue at the same pace in round three. Round four saw Selby take a serious pounding to the head and body for a good portion of the second half of the round and he finally took a knee at the end of the round but beat the count. Lemos went in for the finish in round five dropping Selby twice. The referee waved off the bout after the second knockdown. Lemos is now the IBF mandatory for undisputed champion George Kambosos.

Lightweight Jeremia Nakathila (23-2, 19 KOs) stopped former world champion Miguel Berchelt (38-3, 34 KOs) in six rounds on Saturday night at Resorts World Las Vegas. Nakathila took control immediately. He punished Berchelt and dropped him with a jab in round three. Berchelt staged a brave rally in round five, but took a big shot in round six that sent his mouthpiece flying. The bout was stopped after round six.

“I’m a little bit surprised,” said Berchelt. “I thought I was in a condition to continue, but the referee decided to stop the fight. He’s the ultimate authority. I have to respect that but I wanted to continue.

“I’m going to get up. I’m going to rise from this. The great champions are not the ones who fall. The great champions are those who rise, and I will go home, spend time with my family, visit with them, get some rest, and I am going to come back stronger than ever.”

Nakathila stated,  “From the first round, my corner told me to take my time. I know what I have. I knew it would be difficult for him to reach the 10th round. It wasn’t so easy, but I made it look easy. He didn’t really bother me, the way he swung. I just got back to my game plan, and I capitalized.

“Luckily, {he couldn’t continue}. I was going to knock him out or put him to sleep in a bad way. Luckily, he saw it coming and decided he couldn’t come back.” Continue reading “Nakathila spoils Berchelt comeback”
