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. Continue reading “Underground Boxing starts in style”

Tyson Fury rips Deontay Wilder

Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury ripped into WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder during a one-minute Instagram rant.

“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.”

Boxing Buzz: Broner, Chavez Jr., Zerafa, Fury

An Ohio Judge has ordered former four-division world champion Adrien Broner to pay $830,000 in damages to a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her in a Cleveland nightclub back in June 2018. According to TMZ, it was a default judgment as Broner didn’t appear in court to defend himself against the woman’s allegations.

After the snafu with Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., VADA and the Nevada Boxing Commission, the Arizona Boxing & MMA Commission has been using SMRTL, a WADA-accredited lab, for pre-fight blood/urine testing for both Junior and Daniel Jacobs. There was speculation for a time that Chavez wouldn’t be permitted to fight, but Chavez’ lawyers got a temporary restraining order to temporarily lift the NSAC’s indefinite suspension of Chavez for refusing to take a random VADA test before the fight with Jacobs was finalized.

When Jeff Horn beat Michael Zerafa yesterday in Brisbane, Australia, his gloves had the word “Zerafa” prominently printed on each thumb. Turned out Horn’s trainer Glenn Rushton didn’t like the gloves that came in for Horn and managed to get Zerafa’s back-up gloves for Horn to use.  So Zerafa ended up getting beat with his own gloves.

Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury recently parted ways with trainer Ben Davison. “The Gypsy King” is now working with Javan “SugarHill” Steward, nephew of legendary trainer Emanuel Steward.

Underground Boxing Results

Unbeaten super featherweight Jaime Villegas (10-0, 8 KOs) scored a nine round unanimous decision over Jeremy Triana (11-4-2, 10 KOs) in an action-packed bout to win the WBA Fedebol title on Wednesday night at Centro Comercial Gran Boulevard in Barranquilla, Colombia.

In a clash of unbeaten light flyweights, Rodrigo Ramirez (13-0-1, 8 KOs) scored a hard-fought eight round unanimous decision over Jefferson Blanco (4-1, 3 KOs).

Blanco was deducted a point for a low blow at the end of round two.

Five bouts highlighted the innovative “Boxing Underground” portion of the show where fighters didn’t know their opponents until shortly before the opening bell. Continue reading “Underground Boxing Results”

REVENGE: Horn defeats Zerafa in rematch

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former WBO welterweight champion Jeff “The Hornet” Horn (20-2-1, 13 KOs) turned the tables on WBO #4, WBA #7, IBF #13 middleweight Michael Zerafa (27-4, 16 KOs) over ten action rounds to win a majority decision in their rematch on Wednesday night at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in Brisbane Australia.

Horn came out aggressively in round one, but suffered a cut over his left eye. Horn continued to dictate the pace as he kept up a consistent attack that had Zerafa on the back move. As the fight progressed, both fighters landed big shots. Zerafa was cut over the right eye in round five.

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. When action resumed, Zerafa continued his assault and then out of nowhere Horn connected with a huge right hand that dropped Zerafa! Zerafa beat the count but another Horn right came in that knocked him down again. In the end, scores were 98-90, 97-92 and 94-94. The WBA Oceania and WBO Oriental title were on the line.

Zerafa stopped Horn in nine rounds in their first bout. Continue reading “REVENGE: Horn defeats Zerafa in rematch”

Ueda wins Japanese heavyweight belt

By Joe Koizumi

Once-beaten southpaw Ryu Ueda (9-1-1, 5 KOs), 227.75, acquired the vacant Japanese heavyweight belt when he avenged his previous defeat and barely defeated 41-year-old veteran Kotatsu Takehara (15-13-3, 8 KOs), 245.25, by a hairline but unanimous verdict (all 96-94) over ten close rounds on Sunday in Kariya, Japan.

It was in May 2016 that the elongated southpaw suffered a fourth round TKO by Takehara in Nagoya, but Ueda, 28, utilized his physique this time and managed to outpunch the more powerful but shorter opponent. This national belt had been vacated by WBO Asia Pacific champ Kyotaro Fujimoto, who will make an ambitious shot at Daniel Dubois in London on this coming December 21.
