Jessie Vargas KOs Humberto Soto in six

By Rocky Morales at ringside

In an all-out war, former two-time world champ Jesse Vargas (29-2-2, 11KO) knocked out three-time world champ Humberto Soto (69-10-2, 38KO) with a vicious combination at 1:48 of the sixth round of a scheduled ten round bout at a 151 pound catchweight. In a very rough fight, Soto went down in the first round from a low blow courtesy of Vargas. Not long after, Vargas suffered a nasty cut above his eye courtesy of a headbutt by Soto. While Vargas seemed to be doing enough to win the rounds, Soto remained hard-charging until the bitter end when he was finally dropped by a perfectly placed right cross to the chin. Soto was able to get up and continue but Vargas jumped right on him. After a barrage of punches from Vargas, Soto was dropped again hard and the referee justifiably waved off the bout with no protest from the Soto corner. Vargas was simply too young and too sharp for the aged warrior, Soto, whose last hurrah was likely his upset victory over Brandon Rios in his prior bout.

Anthony “The Magician” Sims Jr (19-0, 17KO) was the unanimous decision victor over rugged but one dimensional Vaughn Alexander (14-3, 9KO) in a ten round super middleweight bout. Sims best magic trick may have been to make the crowd, who had cheered the first four bouts, boo at various times through this bout. Sims Jr. was content to be the matador to the charging bull, Alexander, which was surprising given Sims Jr.’s 94% knockout ratio entering the fight. Sims Jr., with the win, remains a hot prospect but fails to yet cross over to legitimate contender. Judges scored the bout 98-92, 96-94 and 98-92 all in favor of Sims Jr. Continue reading “Jessie Vargas KOs Humberto Soto in six”

Don King reaches out to Anthony Joshua camp

Hall of Fame promoter Don King has been waiting for fellow promoter Eddie Hearn to return the calls he has made to him to offer interim WBA heavyweight champion Trevor Bryan as Anthony Joshua’s next opponent.

“All I am hearing is a bunch of lies out there,” said King. “They are saying I asked for $15 million for Bryan to fight Joshua. I haven’t asked for a dime. I haven’t talked to Eddie, but I’ve left multiple messages and he certainly has my number. I’m ready to talk to Hearn or Joshua and Bryan is ready to step in and make the fight.

This question has to be asked, although I understand that it’s not a comfortable one: what’s your take about this whole PED debacle of your longtime friend Jarrell Miller?

Tough one. I don’t want to say too much about it. We spoke the day after positive test information was released. He said he didn’t do it and I believed him. I have him the benefit of the doubt – and then there were other reports about positive tests. We haven’t talked since then. Continue reading “Kownacki talks Miller, PEDs & Polish Sausage”

Granados came out popping the jab and followed up with the right as Garcia was off to a slow start countering. In round two, Granados landed two rights but Garcia countered and dropped him with a left hook. He got up but was down a second time from a looping right. Garcia was landing big punches in the third busting his nose as Granados kept mixing it up. The fourth round saw Garcia beating Granados to the punch landing heavily.

Garcia dropped Granados a third time in the fifth as this started to become a really one-sided fight. It was all Garcia at the halfway point in the sixth as he mixed up on the inside with Granados. Halfway through in the seventh a series of heavy right hands convinced referee Thomas Taylor to stop the fight at 1:33.

Dimitrenko popped the jab early in the opening round as the shorter man Ruiz stalked going to the body and finished the round strong. Attacking the body in round two, Ruiz stayed on top of Dimitrenko. Continuing to stalk in the third, Ruiz landed a chopping right, shortly after a short right hand found its mark as Dimitrenko was momentarily staggered. Staying busy in the fourth Ruiz kept backing Dimitrenko, who continued to just work off the jab. A chopping right hand in the fifth followed by a straight right got Dimitrenko’s attention as Ruiz kept up the pressure. After the bell, Dimitrenko went to the corner and could not continue. Referee Ray Corona waved it at the end of the fifth.

Hard-hitting Mexican veteran Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo (25-7, 21 KOs) knocked out Evert Bravo (24-10-1, 18 KOs) of Columbia in round two. El Perro was aggressive from the start attacking Bravo knocking him down in the second round with a barrage of punches. The referee reached a ten count at 1:23 of the second.

Big Baby comes clean: I messed up

In a video on social media, Miller stated, “I messed up. I made a bad call. A lot of ways to handle the situation, I handled it wrong and I’m paying the price for it. I’m missing out on a big opportunity and I’m hurting inside. My heart is bleeding right now. I hurt my family, my friends, my team, my supporters, but I’m owning up to it. I’m gonna deal with it, I’m gonna correct it, and I’m gonna come back better. I’m humbled by the experience.” Continue reading “Big Baby comes clean: I messed up”
