Campa

In the co-feature, unbeaten featherweight Carlos Vanegas (5-0, 4 KOs) won a six round split decision over Victorino Gonzalez (5-2, 2 KOs).

The best fight of the night was a four round draw between lightweights Anthony Savilla (2-0-1, 1 KO) and Julio Gomez (0-1-1). Bother fighters were down and hurt in a total slugfest. Promoter Christy Martin already has them lined up for a rematch.

Lara: I’m coming to destroy Warrington

Featherweight Mauricio “Bronco” Lara (23-2, 16 KOs) says he will “destroy” former world champion Josh Warrington (30-1, 7 KOs) again when they meet at Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds next Saturday (September 4) on DAZN. Lara surprisingly upset the previously unbeaten Warrington in nine brutal rounds last February in London. The bout was meant to be a stay busy fight for Warrington, who had vacated his IBF belt with plans to fight then-WBA champion Can Xu.

“Warrington said that I got lucky,” said Lara. “Believe me. There’s no luck in boxing. I’ve never won anything with luck. I won with hard work and a lot of discipline. Of course, since I beat him I feel I’m the champion. Like they say in my town, I’m a champion without a crown. It sounds nice and I think I’ve earned it with hard work. I want to be number one in the world and I’m going to achieve that. Continue reading “Lara: I’m coming to destroy Warrington”

ESPN has announced a few new fights that will air on ESPN platforms. WBO featherweight champion Emanuel Navarrete will meet Joet Gonzalez on October 16. Also, Vasyl Lomachenko will return on December 11 at Madison Square Garden.

After his world title trilogy with Joshua Franco, super flyweight Andrew Moloney has already set his sights on a route back to being a world champion. He is taking aim at WBO champion Kazuta Ioka. Ioka is already lined up to face Francisco Rodriguez Jr. and Moloney is hoping to be next.

Another interesting tidbit from ESPN is the IBF is requiring Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos to be vaccinated by September 7. Apparently it’s in the contract. Will this be a new trend?

YouTuber Jake Paul named Tyson Fury’s brother Tommy Fury as possibly his next opponent. Fury (6-0, 4 KOs) is on Sunday’s Paul-Woodley undercard.
