Andyruiz Imperial
The City of Imperial, with a population of about 15,000 just north of the larger city of El Centro sitting a half hour drive from the Mexican border, could not be prouder to be the home of the man who pulled off a stunning upset victory over Anthony Joshua of Great Britain on June 1st. Imperial pulled out all the stops to salute its hero, starting with a news conference this past Friday and culminating Saturday morning with a parade and rally ending at Imperial High.

Imperial City Councilmember Darrell Pechtl said residents started contacting him within moments of the historic victory of Ruiz Jr. as the first Mexican and Mexican-American world heavyweight champion. “When’s the parade? We’ve got to have a parade!” said Pechtl. Continue reading “Imperial Valley Celebrates their Heavyweight Hero Andy Ruiz, Jr.”

Guillermo Rigondeaux: “People were saying that I get on the bicycle and run a lot. Well that’s not true so I wanted to show them I could fight in short distance and I wanted to get a couple of rounds in. Then that left hand came and ended the fight. I knew I was going to catch him with the left, but it wasn’t there in the beginning. I knew in the later rounds that I could use it and actually catch him. We practiced that every day and it paid off.”

Oleksandr Usyk named WBO mandatory challenger

The WBO Championship Committee has designated Oleksandr Usyk as the mandatory challenger in the heavyweight division. The ruling was issued upon a petition filed by attorney John Hornewer representing Team Usyk. Representatives of current #1 contender Dillian Whyte unsuccessfully opposed the petition.

The WBO ruled in favor of Usyk based on his distinguished amateur record and professional accomplishments including having fulfilled a historic achievement by unifying all four major cruiserweight championship titles from the recognized sanctioning organizations (WBO, WBA, WBC and IBF) and winning the World Boxing Super Series Tournament Muhammad Ali Trophy, and having been acknowledged as a WBO Super Champion entitled to certain rights and privileges including eligibility to be considered for designation as the mandatory challenger in a higher or lower division.

Paulie Malignaggi defeated by MMA fighter

Photos: Phil Lambert

MMA veteran Artem Lobov defeated former world champion Paulie Malignaggi via five round unanimous decision in a bare-knuckle match on Saturday night at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall in Tampa. Judges unanimously scored the contest for the aggressive Lobov 48-47. Malignaggi’s longstanding social media “beef” with UFC star Connor McGregor led him to facing McGregor’s stablemate and friend Lobov.
Malignaggi Mma
“I am not sure what the judges were looking at, but I felt like he walked into a lot of my jabs and check left hooks,” said Malignaggi, who may have broken his hand. “Maybe it’s beneath me, but I thought I would give it a shot, give him a shot. Maybe I was wrong. I am 38 years old so I am not interested in campaigning or competing in bare-knuckle against this loss. I kind of liked the adrenaline rush and it was different, but I am done.” Continue reading “Paulie Malignaggi defeated by MMA fighter”

Simpson Leads KO Parade in Fort Washington, MD

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Rookie Baltimore, MD middleweight Lorenzo “Truck” Simpson scored a blistering second-round TKO over Dewayne “The Beast” Williams of Philadelphia, PA in the main event contest of the Shabazz Brotherz card at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD. Five of the six contests on the card ended in knockouts.

Simpson was very composed during the contest, probing with his solid right jab. Simpson jabbed his way inside and, by the second round, was able to land his left hooks inside. Two of those Simpson left hooks landed flush on Williams’s face and dropped him twice to the canvas. Referee Dave Braslow stopped the contest after the second knockdown and the bout ended at 2:29 of the second round. Simpson remains undefeated at 5-0, four KO’s while Williams’s record evens at 1-1, one KO. Continue reading “Simpson Leads KO Parade in Fort Washington, MD”
