Munguia was the aggressor, but Hogan was very agile in avoiding and countering the stalking champion’s big punches. Scores were 115-113, 116-112, 114-114. Munguia was a 50:1 favorite entering the fight, which was his fourth successful defense.

“I clearly won the fight,” said the 22-year-old Munguia afterward. “I was always attacking and connected with the harder shots, but if he wants the rematch, we’ll give it to him and even in Australia!”

Derek Silveira regains New England welter belt

Popular Derek “The Surgeon” Silveira operated last night on previously undefeated Roberto “El Viejo, Jr.” Valenzuela, Jr., re-capturing the New England welterweight title, by way of an eight-round unanimous decision in the main event on the “Riot at the Rim” card, presented by Granite Chin Promotions (GCP), at The Rim in Hampton, New Hampshire.
Silv Nh
Silveira (16-2, 8 KOs), fighting out of Salem, MA, rocked his 19-year-old Mexican challenger, Valenzuela (14-1, 13 KOs), whose father and cousin also fought on the card, in the first round with a right that dropped his tall, lean opponent. In fact, Silveira stopped Valenzuela’s father two years ago via a second-round stoppage. Continue reading “Derek Silveira regains New England welter belt”

Three-time champ Yaegashi sinks Sahaphap

How long will the old solider and three-division world titleholder Akira Yaegashi keep fighting to pursue another belt? The answer is blowing in the wind.
Yaegashisahaphap
Yaegashi, standing only 5’3” and aging at 36, looked sharp and found it easy to dispatch Thailand’s Sahaphap Bunop (4-3, 3 KOs), 113.75, at 2:25 of the second session in a scheduled ten on Monday (April 8) in Tokyo, Japan. Akira (28-6, 16 KOs), 114.25, displayed his agility, jumping up to the much taller opponent to drop him on three occasions prior to the third man’s well-received halt. Yaegashi maintains his motivation and physical fitness as well toward his dream of acquiring his fourth belt.

Inoue’s cousin Koki wins Japanese 140lb belt

Unbeaten tall southpaw Koki Inoue (13-0, 10 KOs), 140, captured the Japanese super-lightweight belt by outclassing veteran defending titlist Valentine Hosokawa (24-7-3, 11 KOs), 139.5, winning a unanimous decision (97-93, 98-92, 98-93) over ten hard-fought rounds last Saturday (April 6) in Tokyo, Japan.
Kokiinoue
Encouraged by his cousins/world champs Naoya and Takuma, the talented lefty Koki, 26, seemed to pay too much respect to the 37-year-old champ in earlier rounds, but kept his initiative almost all the way. Valentine failed to cut off the ring to catch up with the taller challenger, and was disappointedly less aggressive against the well-reputed challenger.

Vasiliy Lomachenko annihilates Anthony Crolla in four

Reigning WBA/WBO lightweight champion Vasiliy “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KOs) destroyed WBA mandatory challenger Anthony “Million Dolla” Crolla (34-7-3, 13 KOs) in four one-sided rounds on Friday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Loma Crolla

The fight ended when Lomachenko (13-1, 10 KO) connected with a near-lethal right hook that landed perfectly above the ear of the crouching Crolla, flooring him face first and badly hurting him. The referee started a count but quickly abandoned it and called an end to the fight at 0:58 of the fourth round. Continue reading “Vasiliy Lomachenko annihilates Anthony Crolla in four”

Zurdo stops Karpency; Barboza KOs Alvarado

By Rocky Morales and Miguel Maravilla at ringside

Reigning WBO super middleweight champ Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (40-0, 26 KOs) made a hugely successful light heavyweight debut with a fourth round stoppage over sacrificial lamb Tommy Karpency (29-7-1, 18 KOs). In a battle of southpaws, Ramirez easily picked Karpency apart and it was basically target practice. Karpency initially put up some resistance but was visibly outclassed and once this was evident, his resistance lessened as he accepted his fate. Ramirez battered Karpency to the body and head and at Karpency did not come out for the fifth round thus making Ramirez the winner by knockout at 3:00 of the fourth round. With the victory, “Zurdo” likely becomes an instant top five light heavyweight contender, especially in the WBO against Kovalev given Ramirez is still the WBO 168 pound beltholder.

WBO #4 junior welterweight Arnold Barboza, Jr. (21-0, 8 KOs) looked extraordinary in dismantling and demolishing former world champ “Mile High” Mike Alvarado (40-5, 28 KOs). Barboza looked superior from the onset and had no problem picking apart the 38-year-old Alvarado who, despite a six fight winning streak over marginal competition, was a shell of his former self. Barboza, fighting behind a stiff jab, ripped uppercuts and body shots for the first two rounds before hurting Alvarado and putting him down with a vicious right cross, left hook combo. Despite Alvarado going down hard and flopping all over the ring while getting up, the referee seemed intent on allowing it to continue but, fortunately, Alvarado couldn’t even stand straight and was still falling over, forcing the referee to finally wave off the bout. By knockout victory at 0:49 of the third round, Barboza Jr. successfully defends his NABF title and, moreover, proves himself to be a legitimate threat to any champion at 140 pounds.

Peter Quillin: “I have a very determined opponent and I’m fighting in his backyard. It’s a tough fight for both of us. I have to put my authority down on this fight and control it. It’s going to be hard with all his fans in there, but what I’ve always done is take negative circumstances, and turn them into positives.”

Caleb Truax: “The stakes are high for this fight. Whoever wins hopefully gets a crack at the title. It’s going to be tough for the loser to bounce back. If I want to keep fighting I have to leave Saturday with my hand raised.
