Although he looked wild at times, Pllana was able to land more of the cleaner blows in the contest. Pllana kept his left hand low but was able to bring it up in time to land quick jabs and hooks. In the second round, Pllana was able to keep Bell at bay with sweeping lefts and rights. Pllana also showed confidence in the round by adding some shuffling footwork during the round.

Tyner punishes Chambliss, gets third round TKO

By Brad Snyder-The Undercard
Photos by Bob Ryder

This fight was ugly from the start with bad blood boiling over from previous social media posts and broken relationships. Somewhere welterweight Cortez Chambliss (4-1, 4 KOs) got caught in the middle, and even worse, in the ring. Lanardo Tyner (35-13-2, 22 KOs) had some sort of relationship with Steve Zepke, Chambliss’ manager. This launched into a personal feud, which didn’t bold well for the boxing prospect Chambliss.
Tyner Chambliss2
At the start, both fighters looked relaxed and ready for the battle. Tyner, with a 45-fight and 13-year experience advantage over Chambliss, caught Cortez early with what appeared to be a knockout and had veteran Referee Sam Williams appear to waive off the fight. There was so much confusion that Tyner was in the ropes celebrating and corners had jumped on the canvas. The fight continued without a clear explanation.

Jacobs ready for Derevyanchenko

Daniel Jacobs and Sergiy Derevyanchenko have sparred more than 300 rounds together, but when they fight for the vacant IBF middleweight title this weekend on HBO, Jacobs says it won’t be a fight between old friends.

“There’s no personal relationship,” stated Jacobs. “I mean I don’t dislike the guy. I think he’s a really phenomenal, humble gentleman. But, he doesn’t know English so it’s really hard for us to have any relationship outside of the gym or saying hello and goodbye. I haven’t heard him say five English words. So, it’s really like, it’s kind of hard to have a real relationship with somebody that can’t speak English. But, I do know that he’s a very nice guy. I do know that he’s always respectful. He’s very humble. I know these things…but none of that stuff matters when so much is at stake. You got to understand. When you’ve been fighting all your life and you get this close to your goal, it really didn’t matter who is in there. It could have been Andre Rozier at the opposite side of the ring.”
