Juarez couldn’t continue after being battered to the canvas by a barrage of punches from Ocampo.

Hearn: Fury-Joshua a deal done

Promoter Eddie Hearn says a heavyweight unification showdown for the undisputed title between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua is a done deal.

“The deal is done, really — without being signed,” Hearn told the London Times. “The financial elements of the deal are done. We’re talking through the broadcast situation, the only thing really now is to paper it.”

Hearn says the bout will likely land in the Middle East and he hopes to stage the rematch in the UK.

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

IBF #1 lightweight George “Ferocious” Kambosos Jr (19-0, 10 KOs) told Fightnews.com® that he’s confident he’ll upset IBF, WBC, WBA, WBO lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez (16-0, 12 KOs) when they clash in Australia during May.

“If you don’t want to fight me – vacate the belt,” stated Kambosos. “He said he put an offer out. Bob Arum said that he’s a liar. He has no authority to send out contracts. Myself and Devin Haney have received nothing. We are hoping it will be all done in a couple of weeks and we’ll have a date for Kambosos vs. Lopez. We should have it done by February 6 which is the deadline the IBF ordered. Continue reading “Kambosos: I will beat Lopez”

Zurdo-Browne ordered for WBC interim LH belt

Undefeated former WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (41-0, 27 KOs) is all in for a potential World Boxing Council (WBC) interim light heavyweight title fight against 2012 U.S. Olympian “Sir” Marcus Browne (23-1, 16 KOs).

The WBC ordered Ramirez vs. Browne this past Monday because reigning WBC light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev (15-0, 15 KOs) hasn’t defended his title since capturing it October 18, 2019, due to getting COVID-19 during training camp, as well as for other pandemic related restrictions. Beterbiev is also the reigning International Boxing Federation (IBF) light heavyweight champion.

Ramirez is the #1 light heavyweight contender in the WBC ratings, while Browne is ranked #4. Team Zurdo and Team Browne have until February 5th to work out a deal before it’ll go to purse bid. Ramirez is promoted by his own company, Zurdo Promotions, while Browne is represented by PBC. Continue reading “Zurdo-Browne ordered for WBC interim LH belt”

By TMZ.com

“I know y’all scared and sh*t, but let’s just make the fight happen for the fans. Let’s just do that. Don’t overprice yourselves. If y’all believe y’all the best and y’all think that y’all can take this, then let’s make the fight happen! Man, don’t be p***y about it!”

KingRy KOs Campbell, wins WBC interim belt

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

Lightweight Ryan “KingRy” Garcia (21-0, 18 KOs) proved once again he is more than a social media sensation with his close to 8M followers on Instagram and showed he’s the real deal in the ring with his 7th round knockout of UK star Luke “Cool Hands” Campbell (20-4, 16 KOs) to claim the vacant WBC interim lightweight title on Saturday night at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Campbell was supposed to be Garcia’s toughest fight to date, at least on paper, and after he dropped Garcia with a massive left hook to the jaw in the 2nd round, it clearly looked to be the case. But Garcia, who has never been on the canvas, got quickly to his feet and continued to take the fight to Campbell who tried to counteract the insane speed of Garcia with timing counter shots of his own. Garcia would have had most opponents out of there early, but Campbell stood strong and was able to take everything thrown at him to that point.

But then came the seventh round of the scheduled twelve, when Garcia landed a blistering left to the body that put Campbell to his knees. The shot debilitated Campbell as he did everything he could to get back to his feet as referee Laurence Cole counted to ten. The time was 1:58 of round seven.

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

In a rematch of their 2017 bout, Rene Alvarado (32-9, 21 KOs) out of Managua, Nicaragua squared off once again against Richard Gutierrez (25-3-1, 20 KOs), from Maracaibo, Venezuela, a fight Alvarado won by knockout. Gutierrez, though, was more than up for the challenge this time around as he wobbled Alvarado in round one and then dropped him twice in round three with a barrage of punches and again in round twelve to win a unanimous decision 113-112 on all three scorecards. The knockdown in the twelfth proved to be the difference between winning and losing for Gutierrez who takes home the WBA super featherweight title with the revenge victory against Alvarado.

By Jeff Zimmerman at ringside

IBF lightweight champ Felix Alvarado (36-2, 31 KOs) from Managua, Nicaragua retained his title with a show stopping performance against the tough, former IBF minimumweight champ DeeJay Kriel (16-2-1, 8 KOs) from Gauteng, South Africa with a 10th round TKO stoppage. Alvarado, the twin brother of Rene who is also showcased on the Golden Boy Card, dropped Kriel in the second and fourth rounds before connecting with multiple powerful right hands in the tenth with Kriel against the ropes in his own corner, that forced referee Mark Calo-oy to stop the back and forth slugfest.

Ioka stops Tanaka, keeps WBO 115lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

In a greatly anticipated encounter of Japanese compatriots, WBO junior bantamweight champ Kazuto Ioka (26-2, 15 KOs), 115, very impressively kept his belt as he sent previously unbeaten Kosei Tanaka (15-1, 9 KOs), 115, to the deck twice with a well-timed left hook in the fifth and sixth and finally halted him at 1:35 of the eighth round on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. It was a beautiful demonstration of Ioka’s skills in averting Tanaka’s opening attacks and precisely counterpunching him with the picture-perfect left hooks. The ref was Michiaki Someya, Japan, who made a well-timed stoppage to save the battered and bloodied loser from further punishment.

Former WBC flyweight ruler Daigo Higa (17-1-1, 17 KOs), 118, wrested the WBO Asia Pacific bantamweight belt by flattening defending titlist, compatriot Yuki Strong Kobayashi (16-9, 9 KOs), 117.5, at 0:45 of the fifth session in a scheduled twelve. Higa had swept all rounds prior to the trick happening with his vicious uppercut to the face.

Porter rejects “lowball” offer to fight Crawford

WBO mandatory challenger Shawn Porter says Top Rank needs to make a better offer if they want him to challenge WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford.

“I’m not taking a million,” said Porter on his podcast. “I did the best I could to send a message to Bob Arum and I also know people who know Bob and I told them ‘Tell Mr. Arum I don’t mean any disrespect and I know that he doesn’t, but if you’re gonna lowball me, don’t do it! If you feel that’s the way you get out of fighting me, that’s weak. Don’t do it! However, if you want to make the fight happen, don’t lowball me. I’m worth more than a million dollars.’

Khan finally ready for Brook showdown?

The long past its due date grudge showdown between bitter rivals Amir Khan (34-5, 21 KOs) and Kell Brook (39-3, 27 KOs) may finally happen in 2021. “I think with Kell Brook, who has always been running his mouth, I think put him in his place now. I think it is about time now to put him in his place and shut him up for good,” Khan told the Khaleej Times.

“…the gloves are still on. I’m thinking of fighting probably next year. This year was a bit of a bad year for everybody. And boxing was off. They wanted to fight behind closed doors. I didn’t really feel like I could motivate myself, but hopefully, if it opens up next year, we can make something happen. I want to fight again around March or April and there are so many names out there, there are so many deals on the table, in the Middle East as well. So, let’s see how that plays out.”

By Joe Koizumi

Former all four-body world 105-pound champ, 37-year-old Japanese Katsunari Takayama (32-8-1-1NC, 12 KOs), 107.75, made a successful comeback after such a long hiatus as four years and four months when he pounded out a nearly shutout six-round decision (60-54, 59-55 twice) over WBC#11 light-flyweight compatriot Reiya Konishi (17-3, 7 KOs), 108, on Sunday in Osaka, Japan. Konishi, 27, a prefight favorite, suffered another defeat following his failure to win the IBF 108-pound belt from Nicaraguan Felix Alvarado last May. Takayama made best use of his trademark footwork to befuddle and bewilder the flat-footed puncher Konishi, steadily piling up points with his speed and skills. Konishi attempted to go forward and catch up with the fleet-footed veteran, but Takayama was obviously too sharp and swift for him. It’s like a Tom-and-Gerry game.

In a non-title bout, WBA interim super middleweight champion David Morrell Jr. (4-0, 3 KOs) scored a brutal third round TKO over WBA #11 Mike Gavronski (26-4-1, 16 KOs) on Saturday night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. 50:1 favorite Morrell teed off on Gravonski immediately and dropped him at the end of round one. After more punishment in rounds two and three, referee Jack Reiss waved it off at 2:45 of round three. The bout was switched from a world title defense to a 170lb limit non-title ten-rounder at the last minute.

Kirkland started aggressively, but walked into a punch and was dropped. Montiel then floored the 36-year-old Kirkland two more times before the bout was waved off at 1:56. Impressive win for Montiel, who was a slight -130 favorite. He is the nephew of former world champion Fernando Montiel. Continue reading “Morrell batters Gavronski, Montiel KOs Kirkland”

Update: David Morrell still has WBA interim title

This is interesting. According to PBC, Saturday’s fight between WBA interim super middleweight champion David O. Morrell and WBA #11 rated Mike Gavronski was agreed to for 170 pounds at some point beforehand, so the world title is not on the line and is still Morrell’s. This conflicts with all the pre-fight publicity that clearly stated Saturday’s clash was a 12-round world title fight, but in any event it looks like Morrell is keeping the interim belt.

Boxing superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KOs) punished previously unbeaten WBA super middleweight champion Callum “Mundo” Smith (27-1, 19 KOs) for twelve rounds to claim the WBA Super and vacant WBC crowns on Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Smith, who won the World Boxing Super Series in 2018, rarely stood his ground with Canelo, who stalked him from round one. By the midway point, Canelo was just wading in with complete disregard for Smith’s power. By the championship rounds, Canelo was totally imposing his will. It was all Smith could do to survive. Scores were 119-109, 119-109, 117-111.
