Parker-Chisora Update

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker would be interested in bouts against the best heavyweights in the world, including Derek Chisora, according to Parker’s promoter David Higgins.

“Like most top heavyweights, Joseph will be willing to fight anyone,” Higgins told Sky Sports. “I see Eddie Hearn mentioning Chisora publicly. If the deal was right, then, sure enough, Joseph certainly will not back away from anyone. It will be interesting to see how that pans out. There’s been one email from Eddie. No detailed discussion whatsoever. As I say, Joseph would be willing to step in with anyone, provided it’s the right terms. I’m hoping to speak to Eddie this week.”

Super welterweights Stephen Edwards of Davenport and Limberth Ponce of Rock Island, Illinois headlined the evening in a sometimes ugly but highly entertaining bout that featured contrasting styles and two equally vocal and loyal fanbases. Continue reading “Results from Davenport, Iowa”

After a fourteen-month hiatus caused by a suspension after testing positive in a doping test, hard-punching Kenichi Ogawa (23-1-1NC, 17 KOs), 132, returned to ring warfare and defeated Philippine lightweight ruler Roldan Aldea (11-7-1, 6 KOs), 131.25, by a unanimous decision (97-93, 98-92, 99-92) over ten hard-fought rounds on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan.
Ogawa Aldea
Ogawa was once declared a winner over Tevin Farmer and a new IBF 130-pound champ in Las Vegas in December 2017, but a doping test result forfeited his newly acquired belt and the fight result was reversed to no contest. Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended him for six months, while the JBC announced a more strict punishment for a year to force the prospect inactive until December 9 of the previous year.

After a yearlong layoff, WBO featherweight champ Oscar Valdez (25-0, 20 KOs) showed an improved defense with new trainer and Eddy Reynoso and a vicious body attack to knockout fellow Olympian Carmine Tommasone (19-1, 5 KOs) in the 7th round to retain his title. The official time was 9 seconds.

Valdez started off tentative against the game Tommasone as he was picking his spots to the head and body. Tommasone showed he came to fight and countered Valdez at times. Valdez, though, took over the fight as he started landing big shots to the body. In the 4th round, Valdez dropped Tommasone twice, the first one was to the head and then to the body. Each time the Italian Tommasone got to his feet and continued to show he came to fight. Continue reading “WBO champ Valdez stops Tommasone in seven”

Lopez beats down Magdaleno

By Jeff Zimmerman and David Finger at ringside
Photos: Sumio Yamada

In a fight featuring one of boxing’s hottest young prospects, New York’s Teofimo Lopez, 134.8, dominated gritty contender Diego Magdaleno, 134.7, in a fight for the NABF, NABA and USBA lightweight titles. Magdaleno, who twice competed for the world title, was widely considered Lopez’s toughest foe to date but for the first three rounds Lopez dominated him so thoroughly that ringsiders began to wonder if he was ready for Vasyl Lomachenko right now. By the second round Lopez appeared supremely confident as he boxed with aggression. A two punch combination to the face seemed to open a cut on the nose of Magdaleno and by the end of the round Lopez had Magdaleno covering up in the corner as the New Yorker unloaded on him. Magdaleno spun out but it was clear to everyone at ringside that the Las Vegas native was hurt.
Lopezmagdaleno03
However Lopez seemed to ease up in round four. Throwing less combinations, Lopez instead seemed to be looking for that one big punch that would end things. Lopez continued to fight on cruise control in round five and although he easily won the round it appeared that the fight might end up going the distance. But he found his second wind in round six, dropping Magdaleno with a picture perfect left hook in the final thirty seconds of the round. Magdaleno rose on wobbly legs but gamely tried to fight out of trouble. Lopez continued to tee off on Magdaleno in round seven as Magdaleno tried to bluff his opponent by waving Lopez in. Lopez was not fooled however and he threw a pair of hard left hands that sent Magaleno to the canvas in a heap. The fight was waved off at 1:08 of the seventh round, establishing Teofimo Lopez as arguably the most exciting prospect in the sport of boxing. With the win Lopez improves to 12-0, 10 KOs while Magdaleno falls to 31-3, 13 KOs. Continue reading “Lopez beats down Magdaleno”

Ware upsets Ellis, Madera beats Mattice

By Matt Thompson at ringside
Photos: Andy Newman

DeAndre Ware rose to the occasion and scored the biggest win of his career with an upset majority decision over previously undefeated Ronald Ellis in the main event of ShoBox: The New Generation Friday on SHOWTIME from Main Street Armory in Rochester. Both fights of the doubleheader were upsets, as Albany, N.Y. native Will Madera defeated Thomas Mattice in an eight-round lightweight co-feature.
Ware Ellis
Ellis (15-1-2, 10 KOs), who had the advantage over Ware in both height and reach, became the 185th fighter to lose their undefeated record on the prospect developmental series after Mattice suffered his first defeat and became fighter number 184.

Ware (13-1-2, 8 KOs), who edged Ellis 95-95 and 96-94 twice, pressed the action from the outset. While Ellis threw a higher volume of punches throughout the night, Ware was more effective with the punches he landed and worked Ellis inside as the fight progressed.

“I controlled the fight. The whole fight I was landing the harder shots,” said Ware. “I finally had a chance to get in shape and have a full camp, and we were able to show what we really have. I applied the pressure. He was just flicking the jab and it wasn’t doing anything.” Continue reading “Ware upsets Ellis, Madera beats Mattice”
