In a unification bout for the lightweight titles of the World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing Federation (IBF), Mikey Garcia (40-0, 30 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Robert Easter (21-1, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at Staples Center, Los Angeles, California.
Mikey Garcia Vs Robert Easter Jr
Garcia knocked down Easter in the third round with a beautifully placed right cross, left hook combo. Easter, to his credit, recovered and did his best to box Garcia from the outside but was unable to hurt Garcia with what was mainly his jab. The ninth round was the best of the fight with the two engaging in toe to toe action. That would be Easter’s last hurrah as it seemed to take its toll on him and he went into survival mode for the remainder of the fight.

Judges scored it 116-111, 117-110 and 118-109 all in favor of the now unified lightweight champion, Garcia. Continue reading “Garcia beats Easter, unifies WBC, IBF lightweight titles”

By Rocky Morales at ringside

Ortiz easily won the opening round and hurt the much bigger Cojanu with a body shot. Cojanu, for whatever reason, seemed to taunt Ortiz during the fight and that didn’t go so well as Ortiz landed a right hook that opened up Cojanu perfectly for a laser-guided missile of a straight left cross that dropped Cojanu like a 269-pound sack of potatoes. Cojanu twice attempted to get up but fell each time and when he did manage to get up, it was on unsteady legs, and seemingly concussed, prompting the referee to stop the fight.

Believe it or not, WBO world flyweight champ Sho Kimura (17-1, 10 KOs), 111.6, is the most popular Japanese male athlete—the female being a cute and lovable table tennis player Ai Fukuhara (who speaks Chinese very fluently)—among a great many people (estimated more than 1.3 billion) in China thanks to his upset coronation over two-time Olympic gold medalist Shiming Zou a year ago.

Kimura finally caught up with Saludar with lethal body shots.

Fast-punching southpaw IBF#8 Shingo Wake (25-5-2, 17 KOs), 121.75, impressively wrested the Japanese super-bantam belt when he decked WBC#7/WBA#7 defending champ Yusaku Kuga (16-3-1, 11 KOs), 121.75, in the second and finally halted him at 0:36 of the tenth and final session in a very sensational sell-out contest on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.

Wake, a taller stylish lefty footworker, made good use of hand speed and sent the prefight favorite Kuga to the canvas with a smashing southpaw left midway in round two. Taking the initiative in the first half, Wake, however, sustained a gash at the forehead caused by an accidental butt in the fifth, after which the open scoring system indicated he was ahead on points: 49-45 twice, 48-45.

European Updates

By Marco Bratusch

Italian southpaw puncher Fabio Turchi (15-0, 11 KOs) finally seems to have a new dance partner to battle with for the vacant European Union cruiserweight championship in Bulgarian Tervel Pulev (11-0, 10 KOs), the younger brother of heavyweight Kubrat Pulev, a former two-time European titlist. A former decorated amateur boxer, Pulev decided to turn Pro quite late and as a result he is now fighting pretty often since his debut in the paid ranks less than two years ago. The European Boxing Union already set the purse bid for August 9 in Rome if the parties had not reach a deal by that date. The matchup appears an intriguing one, however it remains to see whether OPI Since 82 which has just started to manage Turchi’s career intends to take such risks rather than move Turchi to other paths, being the Italian still a pretty young and green fighter who has just turned the 25th birthday.

Results Of Asian Sensation

By Joe Koizumi

Japanese defending champ Sho Kimura successfully defended his WBO world flyweight belt by finishing Filipino challenger Froilan Saludar at 0:54 of the sixth round on Friday in Qingdao, China.

In a sensational encounter of world-rated 122-pound compatriots, Shingo Wake dropped Japanese national champ Yusaku Kuga in round two, took the initiative thereafter and finally halted the prefight favorite with a fine stoppage by a thrown towel at 0:36 of the tenth and final round on Friday at the Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan. Wake, a lanky stylish southpaw who once failed to win the WBA belt from Jonathan Guzman via eleventh round stoppage in 2016, was leading on points: 88-82 twice, 87-82. Wake captured the national 122-pound belt from Kuga.
