Boxing Results from Sacramento

Ruben Villa (12-0) of Salinas, not known particularly for his punching power, turned on the juice and stopped Ricardo Lopez (7-3-2) of Mexico in the sixth round of their featherweight main event late Saturday night at the Omega Center in South Sacramento. Lopez was willing to mix but was outgunned during most of the scheduled eight-rounder and was dropped by a left-left-right combination for the only knockdown. Regaining his feet, he became easy prey for follow-up shots to force the stoppage.

The card, by Thompson Boxing Promotions, was held outdoors in the back lot of a commercial business. Portable lighting and seating, plus live streaming via Facebook still attracted several hundred fans to the makeshift venue featuring several Northern California fighters.

Parker: Wilder has scary power

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker says WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has KO power and would start as the favorite to defeat IBF, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. “Personally I think Deontay Wilder takes it. Even though he is wild by name and nature, he is loose, elusive and has power,” Parker told Sunday Sport.

“He has scary one-punch knockout power. I’d take him to win, but boxing is a funny game and I could be proven wrong.” Continue reading “Parker: Wilder has scary power”

Garcia stopped the action in round five and the ring doctor ruled Campa couldn’t continue. Scorecards were 50-44 on all three cards.

“I felt very good,” said Campa afterward. “I was getting into a rhythm and was a bit surprised by my rival’s stamina, but I was doing my job.

In a bloodbath, undefeated WBO #1, WBA #2 super lightweight Alex “El Cholo” Saucedo (28-0, 18 KOs) stopped WBO #7 Lenny Zappavigna (37-4, 27 KOs) in round seven of a sensational fight on Saturday night at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Both fighters were cut in the bout. Saucedo dropped Zappavigna in round three but Lenny Z fought back fiercely. In round four, Zappavigna battered Saucedo. Saucedo regained control in round five behind his jab. By the end of round six, Zappavigna’s left eye was closed and his face was a bloody mask.

Unbeaten Irish Olympic super featherweight hero Michael Conlan (8-0, 5 KOs) outboxed former world title challenger Adeilson Dos Santos (19-5, 15 KOs) over eight uneventful rounds on Saturday night at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Canelo: GGG only cares about money

In an interview on the ESPN Deportes Friday, Canelo Alvarez stated that he’s through being cordial with WBC/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and that the Golovkin camp are hypocrites who only care about money, not honor.

There is so much bad blood between the two fighters that there will not be a kick-off press conference or press tour and the fighters won’t meet face to face until fight week. They’ll do a split-screen press event on Facebook next week and that’s as close as they’ll get.

* * *

Also both camps released statements…

Canelo Alvarez: “The truth is that this fight means a lot to me because of all that has happened and all that has been said. I will prove with my fists that I am the best, and Golovkin will eat all of his words and speculations. I will demonstrate who is the best when I defeat Golovkin soundly on September 15 during Independence Day Weekend, and I’ll make it clear that Mexican boxing is the best.”

Gennady Golovkin: “I am happy that the deal is done and the rematch is back on. I am ready to get back to work in Big Bear with Abel. This is the biggest fight for boxing, the fight everyone wants. It is a fight to see who is best. It is for boxing history. I am happy to be defending my titles on Mexican Independence Day, a great stage for true Mexican-Style boxing. Canelo can walk to the ring last. Canelo can be introduced last. The important thing is who leaves the ring last, and that will be me, as world champion, the people’s champion. See you at the Big Drama Show.” Continue reading “Canelo: GGG only cares about money”

Rahman Family successful in Woodlawn, MD

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

The Shabazz Brotherz Promotions card held Friday night at Martin’s West in Woodlawn, MD proved to be a great night for the family of former undisputed heavyweight champion and Baltimore, MD native Hasim Rahman, Sr.

Heavyweight Hasim “Gold Blooded” Rahman, Jr. knocked out Stephen Tyner of Akron, OH at one second of the second round. Rahman, Jr. was dominant through the first round, battering Tyner from the opening bell. Right at the end of the first, Rahman, Jr. landed a crushing right hand that dropped Tyner to the canvas. Tyner managed to beat referee Brent Bovell’s count and make it to his corner. However, as the bell rang to start the second round, Tyner could not get off of his stool and the bout would be stopped. Rahman, Jr. remains undefeated at 5-0, four KO’s while Tyner falls to 4-16-3, two KO’s.

Rahman, Jr.’s brother, Sharif “C3” Rahman, won a four-round unanimous decision in a light heavyweight bout over Tahlik Taylor of Greensboro, NC. In going the distance for the first time in his young career, Rahman handled the distance easily as he was able to outwork Taylor in the contest. Judge David Braslow scored a shutout for Rahman, 40-36 while judges Kenny Chevalier and John Gradowski saw the bout 39-37 for Rahman, who is now 3-0, two KO’s while Taylor falls to 3-11-1, one KO.

Rahman, Sr.’s brother, Muhsin “The Spartan” Cason, won a cruiserweight bout by four-round unanimous decision over the debuting Charles Johnson of Upper Marlboro, MD. Cason showed a strong jab that kept Johnson off balance throughout the bout. Johnson tried to fight back but Cason’s offense was too strong as he won by shutout across the board, 40-36. Cason’s record is now 2-0. Continue reading “Rahman Family successful in Woodlawn, MD”

Muhammad Ali: By the Numbers

By Boxing Bob Newman

If there is one debate in boxing in which I don’t involve myself, it is arguing who would’ve won between fighters of different eras. The argument can’t ever be proven, at least not based on scientific statistics…and I’m a science guy. Prove me wrong with facts and you win the argument.

Well now, thanks to the efforts of Bob Canobbio and Lee Groves of Compubox, maybe that argument is one in which I could eventually engage. Muhammad Ali: By the Numbers takes a never before seen quantitatively analytical view at the career of “The Greatest.” It’s Modern Science meets the Golden Age of the Sweet Science.

Maldonado surprises Cartagena in Philly

By John DiSanto at ringside
Photos: Darryl Cobb Jr.

In the main event, Los Angeles flyweight Carlos Maldonado, 11-2, 7 KOs, spoiled the homecoming of North Philly’s Miguel Cartagena, 15-5-1, 6 KOs, by winning a split decision in their eight round bout. After about four years on the road, Miguel returned to the area for this career reboot assignment, and although I had him up by a point after eight rounds, he faded in the final two sessions and let the victory slip away. The fight was very competitive. On my card, the fighters split the first four rounds before Cartagena won the fifth and sixth. However, Maldonado rallied in the final two rounds and punctuated his performance by scoring a knockdown in the eighth. However, Maldonado won the fight by consensus of the three official scorers. Each fighter claimed a 76-75 score, but the tie was broken by the third score of 77-74 for Maldonado. Continue reading “Maldonado surprises Cartagena in Philly”

WBSS finally confirms Usyk-Gassiev date

We reported this a while back, but today Comosa AG officially announced a date and venue for the spectacular World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight final and unification bout between Aleksandr Usyk (14-0, 11 KOs) and Murat Gassiev (26-0, 19 KOs), one of the most anticipated boxing match-ups in years, has been confirmed for Saturday July 21 at the Olimpiysky Sports Complex in Moscow, Russia. The winner will be the first cruiserweight ever to unify the titles in the four-belt era.

Aleksandr Usyk: “I am once again traveling to the territory of the rival. I did it with success in the quarter- and semi-final and now I am going to Moscow to win!”

Murat Gassiev: “I was ready to fight Usyk anywhere in the world. I am sure Usyk and I will make a great fight. The winner takes it all!”

Plans to hold the final of the inaugural season in May had to be revised after Usyk declared that he had sustained an elbow injury during his training camp. The injury was checked by Comosa approved medical staff who agreed with the extent of the injury and recovery timeframe. This meant that the cruiserweight final date, and therefore venue, had to be moved.

Hearn continued, “So stop fooling the fans, and ask the fans and the media to put pressure on Deontay Wilder, because if you really want this fight, it’s still there, sign it. April 13th at Wembley Stadium, Deontay Wilder can give the fans what they want, so don’t worry about us, certainly don’t worry about Anthony Joshua, he will fight any man.”
