Sanchez: Vanes will never be the same after GGG

Gennady Golovkin trainer Abel Sanchez has issued a warning about this Saturday’s clash between GGG and Vanes Martirosyan. “He (Vanes) will never be the same after this fight,” said Sanchez. “None of the fighters that Gennady has fought were ever the same. Jacobs looked terrible in his last fight. Why? Because he went twelve rounds with Golovkin…it’s not only Jacobs. If you go back to Lemieux, to Stevens, to Wade, to Willie Monroe, they are never the same. Murray also. They are never the same after they go rounds with Gennady. Jacobs was supposed to demolish Arias and he had a difficult time with him, which was his first fight after Gennady and now the fight with Sulecki he looked terrible. He gets hit with everything in the book and the reason being, in my opinion, is once you go twelve rounds with Golovkin you are never going to be the same.”

All three judges had Isaac Dogboe out in front entering the eleventh round of his world title fight against Jessie Magdaleno on Saturday night in Philadelphia. David Braslow had it closest at 95-93. Glen Feldman had it 96-91 (scoring round five a 10-7 round), and Dewey LaRosa had it 97-91. Dogboe ended the fight in the eleventh round making the scoring a mute point, but it’s still interesting to know.

Late Results from Mexico

17-year-old Californian Joseph “El Tigre” Landeros extended his perfect streak, achieving his 13th victory, with 13 knockouts, by knocking out Irvin Ordaz, (5-2-1, 2 KOs), in a fight on Friday night at the popular Ruffo Appel Gymnasium in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. For the native of Riverside, California, it was the return to the ring, after an absence of 4 months, the longest of his life, since his beginnings in the competitions as an amateur in the United States circuits. An injury in a knuckle and a change in his training staff, cause the forced rest. After appearances in Tijuana, Aguascalientes, Culiacán and Chihuahua, Landeros fought in Rosarito as part of his preparation for his upcoming pro career in California once he reaches the age of 18 years old.

Lopez, Alvarado, Lara triumph

World ranked super flyweight Melvin “Melo” Lopez (14-0, 9 KOs) of Nicaragua made his bantamweight debut a successful one. Lopez unanimously decisoned Yonathan Padilla (18-4, 8 KOs) of Mexico over 10 rounds to win the WBC youth bantamweight title on Saturday night at the Gimnasio Nicarao in Managua, Nicaragua. It looked like it would be an early night when Lopez dropped Padilla in round 1. Padilla appeared seriously hurt but survived the round. Lopez had Padilla down again in round 2 where Padilla again beat the count. The rest of the fight was one-sided for Lopez as Padilla was very hesitant from there on out having tasted Lopez power. The official scorecards read 100-88 across the board. Continue reading “Lopez, Alvarado, Lara triumph”
