WBC super featherweight world champion Miguel “El Alacran” Berchelt (36-1, 32 KOs) stopped Francisco “El Bandido” Vargas (25-2-2, 18 KOs) in six brutal rounds on Saturday night before 4,424 at the Tucson Arena in Tucson, Arizona.

Berchelt Vargas
“I did what I said I was going to do in the ring,” Berchelt said afterward. “More importantly, I want to thank Francisco ‘Bandito’ Vargas. He’s a true Mexican warrior, and more than anything, let me tell you, he gave me my first opportunity at a world title. So, it was only fair that I would give him a shot to win his world title back. But his corner did the right thing in saving him from more punishment.” Continue reading “Berchelt stops Vargas again, retains WBC 130lb title”

Photos: Sumio Yamada

WBO junior featherweight champion Emanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete (27-1, 23 KOs) delivered a one-sided twelve round beatdown of Isaac “Royal Storm” Dogboe (20-2, 14 KOs) to retain his belt on Saturday night before 4,424 at the Tucson Arena in Tucson, Arizona. Navarrete rocked Dogboe early and often over twelve punishing rounds. He dropped Dogboe in rounds six and twelve, prompting Dogboe’s corner to finally threw in the towel with 58 seconds left in the bout. Navarrete beat Dogboe by unanimous decision last December and this time it was even more decisive.
Navarrette Dogboe
“It really surprised me that he took so many hard shots, but at the same time, he continued to throw strong punches,” Navarrete said. “I want to thank Dogboe because he gave me the opportunity to become a world champion, and now in this second fight, he gave me the opportunity to demonstrate that my first triumph wasn’t by accident and that there is a reason why I have the title. And to all the fighters at122 pounds, I tell them that if they want my title, then they can come and try and take it. ‘El Vaquero’ is here!” Continue reading “Navarrete defeats Dogboe again, this time by TKO”

Undefeated San Antonio, TX super lightweight Mario “El Azteca” Barrios scored a second-round knockout over Juan Jose Velasco of Pulpaia, Argentina in the co-feature bout at Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, VA.
Barriosvelasco
Barrios was aggressive from the start and eventually caught Velasco with a clean body shot followed by a solid right cross. Velasco went down and could not beat referee Wayne Spinola’s 10-count. Barrios is now 24-0, 16 KO’s. Velasco falls to 20-2, 12 KO’s.

Update: The 10-round contest between Matt Korobov and Immanuwel Aleem has had the scores changed. The bout is now a majority draw. One score was incorrectly read as 96-95 for Korobov when it should have read 95-95. Korobov did win one scorecard at 97-93. Korobov’s record is now 28-2-1, 14 KO’s while Aleem is now 18-1-2, 11 KO’s.

Middleweight Matt Korobov of St. Petersburg, FL won a 10-round majority decision over “The Chosen One” Immanuwel Aleem of Richmond, VA. Korobov seemed to land the harder punches in the contest, at times making Aleem take a step back. In the sixth round, Korobov wobbled Aleem with a strong right uppercut. However, Aleem fought back and turned the tide in the last three rounds as he caught the Russian native with strong punches of his own. One judge had a draw, 95-95 but the two other judges scored the contest, 96-95 and 97-93 for Korobov, who is now 29-2, 14 KO’s. Aleem falls to 18-2-1, 11 KO’s.

Kurihara keeps OPBF 118lb belt; Matsunaga wins Japanese 154lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Hard-punching OPBF bantamweight champ Keita Kurihara (14-5, 12 KOs), 118, successfully made his initial defense when he stunned the crowd with a quick demolition of former world challenger, Filipino veteran Warlito Parrenas (26-10-1, 23 KOs), 117.5, with a single right shot to the side of the head at only 0:35 into the opening session of a scheduled twelve on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.
Kurihara Matsunaga
Parrenas, who once had an ambitious crack at the WBO 115-pound belt against Naoya “Monster” Inoue only to sink in two quick rounds in 2015, now suffered three consecutive losses.

Perennial contender and ex-WBO AP champ Hironobu Matsunaga (15-1, 9 KOs), 153.75, captured the Japanese national 154-pound belt by halting defending titlist Hiroyuki Shindo (20-5-2, 8 KOs), 153.75, after the sixth session in a scheduled ten. The much shorter but stout-built southpaw Matsunaga kept battering the elongated but overpowered champ, also lefty Shindo and stalking him from pillar to post to have him absorb so much punishment that his corner finally decided to surrender on the stool.
