Team Barroso outraged over WBA Ruling

The WBA recently announced that unbeaten WBA ranked #1 super lightweight contender Alberto Puello (20-0, 10 KOs) of the Dominican Republic and WBA #6 ranked super lightweight contender Botirzhon Akhmedo (9-1, 8 KOs) will fight for the WBA super lightweight world title. Akhmedo is said to be moved to the #2 world ranking when the next rankings come out. An issue is that the current #2 world ranking is being held by former world title challenger Ismael Barroso (23-3-2, 21 KOs) of Venezuela. Barroso´s co-manager Osmiri Fernandez was very displeased by the WBA’S ruling and vows to pursue immediate legal channels to get justice for Barroso.

IBHOF Trilogy Inductions quick report

Report/Photos: Boxing Bob Newman

After a three year hiatus, the International Boxing Hall of Fame inducted three classes today into its hallowed fraternity and sorority. Some 36 inductees were enshrined overall. 22 were actually on hand with additional video greetings sent by Wladimir Klitschko and Lucia Rijker who remain back home in the Ukraine and the Netherlands respectively.

With the pandemic necessitating the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 festivities, the induction of three classes meant finding a way to accommodate the families and friends of three classes worth of inductees.

The Hall of Fame partnered with the nearby Turning Stone Resort and Casino to utilize their events center where boxing is often held, to conduct the induction. It was a perfect fit with over a thousand in attendance.

Inductions were done by class – starting with 2020 first and ending with 2022. A full video with speeches by the boxers will follow tomorrow!

By Ron Jackson

In an epic toe-to-toe encounter, Roarke Knapp (14-1-1, 11 KOs) beat Brandon Thysse (14-3-1, 12 KOs) on a twelve round split decision in their rematch at Emperors Palace, near Kempton Park on Saturday night to win the vacant African Boxing Union junior middleweight title.

Alfredo Angulo comeback suddenly implodes

The highly promoted return of 39-year-old former world champion and fan favorite Alfredo Angulo (26-8, 21 KOs) as a light heavyweight against Fidel Monterrosa (40-29-1, 32 KOs) on Saturday night at the Center Stage Theater in Atlanta didn’t happen. The fighters weighed in Friday, but the 11-bout card ran long and local authorities shut the card down. The announcers alluded to a curfew on the stream and quickly signed off.

Update: We were told the Commission didn’t want fights starting after midnight.

In bouts that did take place, former Contender star and local super middleweight favorite Quatavious Cash (15-3, 8 KOs) outpointed Chukka Willis (4-16, 2 KOs) over six rounds. Scores were not announced. Cash had a previously beat Willis in 2019.

Heavyweight Jonathan Guidry (18-1-2, 6 KOs) scored a spectacular seventh round KO over previously unbeaten Dacarree “Mac Truck” Scott (7-1, 6 KOs) to claim Scott’s NABA gold title on the Bryan-Dubois card at the Casino Miami Jai-Alai in Miami, Florida. Good action fight between two short, stocky, well-matched boxers. Toe-to-toe action all the way. In the end, Guidry won the war of attrition. Time was 2:01. Guidry was inspired by the ten count for former promoter Les Bonano, who recently passed.

NABA cruiserweight titleholder Johnnie Langston (11-3, 4 KOs) took a hard fought ten round split decision over Isaiah Thompson (6-2-1, 5 KOs). Thompson rocked Langston in round eight, but was dropped himself during his follow-up. Good toe-to-toe action in round ten. Scores were 95-94 Thompson, 95-94, 97-92 Langston.

Jalolov goes to 11-0, 11 KOs

Jalolov 4

Report/Photos by Boxing Bob Newman at ringside

2020 Olympic Super Heavyweight Gold medal winner Bakhodir Jalolov looked to make it 11 for 11 with 11 KOs against gritty Belgian (by way of Democratic Republic of the Congo) Jack Mulowayi.

The bout was an ugly affair for much of the going. A point was taken away from Jalolov in the fourth for excessive holding when ref Benjy Esteves could not break the two. As the bell rang ending the sixth, Jalolov landed a big right, dropping Mulowayi along the ropes. It looked as if the KO streak would continue. Then, Mulowayi appeared the spoiler and frustrated Jalolov to survive the seventh. Midway through the eighth and final round a titanic left crushed Big Jack and down he went, head crashing loudly to the canvas. Esteves waved off the count and summoned the ringside physicians. Mulowayi rose under his own power after a few scary minutes. The time was 1:20 of the eighth. Jalolov improves to 11-0, 11 KOs, while Mulowayi falls to 10-3-1, 5 KOs.

“I’m feeling really good about the performance,” said the 27-year-old Jalolov. “The opponent was at a really good level and a great fighter. He was a really tough, durable guy. I landed some big shots on him and he can take a punch. Continue reading “Jalolov goes to 11-0, 11 KOs”

Kyoguchi busted up Bermudez, but Bermudez showed tremendous heart and kept coming. Kyoguchi was deducted a point by referee Roberto Ramirez Jr. after a head clash in round six. By round seven, Bermudez’ face was a bloody mask. Kyoguchi was deducted another point for hitting behind the head. On the verge of a possible disqualification, Kyoguchi came out with a savage attack in round eight and forced a referee’s stoppage. Time was :24.

“I have always wanted to fight in Mexico with the great fans here and I am so glad that I did,” said Kyoguchi. “It’s a great win and I am ready for the next step.

Arias, Thonson win in Verona, NY

Arias Green 2

Report/Photos by Boxing Bob Newman at ringside

Former undefeated NABF cruiserweight champ Alante Green moved up to test the heavyweight waters against fellow undefeated true heavyweight George Arias in a scheduled 8 rounder. It was a difficult bout to score with it being a tale of two fights: one a track meet with Arias backpedaling and Green in tactical pursuit and the other fight- a case of phone booth warfare along the ropes. It depended on what the judges were looking for, but neither man was marked, cut, or hurt at any time in the bout. In the end, Don Trella saw it 77-75 for Green, while both Tom Schreck (78-74) and Eric Marlinski (77-75) had it for Arias, who remains undefeated at 18-0, 7 KOs, while Green loses his first at 10-1-1, 7 KOs. Green did himself no shame but might choose to return to cruiser.

Opening the ShoBox telecast were undefeated lightweights Chann Thonson of Brossard, Quebec, Canada and Tyler Tomlin of Cheatham County, TN. It was a fast paced, highly skilled match right from the get-go. For the first two-and-a-half rounds it appeared there was little separating the two. Thonson started to connect with hard shots late in round three, causing some blood from the nose of Tomlin. In round four, blood from the mouth, nose and left eye brow were now flowing freely from Tomlin’s face. Thonson went for the kill but couldn’t achieve it in round four. Between rounds, the ring physician checked the damage and allowed the action to continue. Thonson kept up the brutal attack, unable to drop Tomlin but further punished him, blood flying everywhere in and out of the ring. Another doctor’s check proved to be the end of Tomlin, the time being 1:01 of the fifth round. Thonson improves to 11-0, 8 KOs while Tomlin suffers his first defeat at 13-1, 9 KOs.
