The end came in round five when Povetkin landed two savage shots that laid Price out. A huge Povetkin right left Price dazed with his hands down. Povetkin then had a free shot.

WBO #1 Tanaka halts #13 Baldonado before WBO 112lb champ Kimura

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten two-class WBO world champ Kosei Tanaka (11-0, 7 KOs), 112, impressively decked also undefeated, #13 Ronnie Baldonado (10-1-1, 7 KOs), 111.5, in round four and finally halted him at 2:26 of the ninth session on Saturday in Nagoya, Japan.

Baldonado, whose de facto manager is Manny Pacquiao of MP Promotions, furiously started attacking Tanaka from the outset, swinging roundhouse solid shots, but the ex-champ, 22, cleverly averted them and connected with short but more effective counters to the onrushing opponent. Having swept the first three rounds with precision, Tanaka badly sent him to the deck in agony with a wicked left hook to the belly, but Baldonado amazingly stood up and came back fighting on.

NSAC Executive Director: Canelo is guilty

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Bob Bennett has filed an official Complaint for Disciplinary Action against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez for testing positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol. The complaint states that whether intentional or not, “by allowing Clenbuterol to enter his system, Alvarez engaged in conduct that reflected discredit to unarmed combat and he is guilty of foul or unsportsmanlike conduct that was detrimental to a contest.”

Based on the allegations, Bennett is asking that the Commission impose a period of ineligibility against Alvarez pursuant to NSAC guidelines. This could result in a suspension as short as six months from the date of the infraction, which would make Canelo eligible to fight again in September. The Commission will address the issue in April.

Canelo is scheduled for a rematch against Gennady Golovkin on May 5. The bout is still officially on, but the venue is already issuing refunds.
