Maestre TKOs Chaves in 4

Unbeaten super welterweight “Capitán” Gabriel Maestre of Venezuela (2-0, 2 KOs), who participated in five World Amateur Boxing Championships and two Olympic Games before turning pro, stepped up and defeated former WBA world champion Diego “La Joya” Chaves (27-6-1, 23 KOs) of Argentina by fourth round TKO on Thursday night at the Sugar Baby Rojas Coliseum in Barranquilla, Colombia.

It was a short fight but had a lot of heavy exchanges that the much physically bigger Maestre was getting the better of. Near the end of round one, Maestre dropped Chaves, who beat referee Tony Weeks’ 10 count to get out of the round. Chaves used his professional experience by tying Maestre up and throwing back as well for the next few rounds. In round four, things got a bit sloppy with Chaves going down multiple times complaining of a clash of heads and being hit behind the head. No knockdown was called but in the midst of the drama, the corner of Chaves threw in the towel ending the fight. Continue reading “Maestre TKOs Chaves in 4”

Jacobs-Chavez Jr. changed to light heavy bout

Daniel Jacobs 167.8 vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr 172.7

Originally announced as a super middleweight bout, the camps agreed on a catch weight of 173 pounds. Jacobs, currently a 13:1 favorite, still made the super middleweight limit. Chavez reportedly will pay Jacobs a $1 million penalty. The real weigh-in and negotiations took place in the morning. The weigh-in ceremony streamed by DAZN was a staged event. That’s why no one batted an eye when Junior weighed in 4.7 pounds heavy.

Underground Boxing starts in style

Sometimes returning to the roots can mean innovating. In boxing, a sport that has evolved to become a great television event, the World Boxing Association (WBA) has tried to make it even more striking. Thus the “Boxing Underground” concept was born and had its debut event on Wednesday night in the city of Barranquilla, Colombia.
Boxingunderground
Five fights formed a great night of boxing with a twist. Boxers had no way to study their opponents in advance. The fighters only saw each other when they went up into the ring in the presentation at the beginning of the card, with those who participated meeting their opponents. This created a great event filled with suspense, new challenges, and excellent fights.

“In this first edition of Underground Boxing we saw competitive fights and we wanted to offer a differentiated scenario, with exciting fighting and a modality that offers suspense and uncertainty, which gives each confrontation a special attraction,” said architect of this new program, WBA President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza.

“Hey this is Tyson Fury. This is a special message for Deontay Wilder, the Big Dosser. He’s going around saying he fights all the best heavyweights, but Dominic Breazeale ain’t no best heavyweight. And neither is Luis Ortiz. Dominic Breazeale’s average at best. And the other guy, Luis Ortiz, is average at best, 145 years old, someone you already knocked out. You bum! You go around fighting the best do you? You’ve only fought one good man in your career. That’s me and I beat you. And everyone in the world knows you lost to the Gypsy King. A Gypsy King that was out of the ring for 3 years still beat you on 50%. I’ll have everything I’ve got that I beat you, dosser. I ain’t afraid about you. I ain’t bothered about you, bum. I wasn’t bothered about you back then, and I’m definitely not bothered now. You big dosser. You’re getting it. You. Big. Dosser. You know you lost, your trainer knows you lost, your manager, promoter, wife, kids, they all know The Gypsy King bettered you. Coming for you p***y.”

Zerafa rocked Horn badly in round nine and looked about to finish him, but the bout was halted by referee John Cauchi to allow the ring doctor to examine Horn’s cut.
