In a tactical but exciting bout, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs) edged out a narrow unanimous decision victory over Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (35-3, 29 KOs) in front of 20,203 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Scores were 115-113, 115-113, 116-112 with many close rounds, any one of which scored the other way could have turned it into a well-deserved draw. With the victory, Canelo added Jacobs’ IBF belt to his own belts to become the unified WBA/WBC/IBF middleweight champion.

Although most ringside observers favored Canelo in the early rounds, Jacobs ably executed his game plan of boxing from distance and holding Canelo at the end of his jab, keeping the Mexican star from getting into any sort of rhythm and forcing him to reach with his punches.

Artur Beterbiev (14-0, 14 KOs) is not a graceful, artistic fighter, at times more awkward than effective – but when he’s effective, you’d like his chances against a train. The IBF light heavyweight champion defended his title in serious style with a fifth round knockout of Radivoje Kalajdzic (24-2, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at Stockton Arena in Stockton, California.
Beterbievkalajdzicphotos
Kalajdzic moved a lot in the early going, at times elusive, at times aggressive. Beterbiev was patient, occasionally bull-rushing his opponent. When he landed the big punches, Kalajdzic hung on in there, cracking off some scoring blows of his own in frenzied exchanges. Continue reading “Beterbiev retains IBF light heavy title”

Ortiz Jr. smashes Herrera in three

In a dazzling performance, 21-year old welterweight prospect Vergil Ortiz, Jr. (13-0, 13 KOs), took a big step towards graduating to contender status, nearly decapitating the normally durable gatekeeper Mauricio Herrera (24-9, 7 KOs) and earning a stoppage 29 seconds into round three of a scheduled ten round bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Vergil Emily07
The bout actually started very slowly, with both fighters feeling each other out over the first five minutes, Herrera understandably very cautious, throwing a few hesitant jabs while Ortiz did even less, taking his time to assess his opponent. The fight turned suddenly in the final minute of round two, when a big right hand by Ortiz rocked Herrera and started a flurry that ended with Herrera on the canvas moments before the end of the round.

IBF super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas (31-1-2, 21 KOs) promised to be better after two lackluster defenses of his title and the Filipino southpaw delivered, hammering Japan’s Ryuichi Funai (31-8, 22 KOs) with a slew of nasty headshots before the fight was stopped after seven rounds before 10,105 at the Stockton Arena in Stockton, California.
Ancajasfunaiphotos
Ancajas, making his seventh title defense, started out slowly, content to observe and occasionally toss out a counter as Funai came forward. Action picked up in the third round as Ancajas threw more and landed regularly. In the fourth, the 27-year-old bludgeoned Funai, who was wobbling around some by the round’s end.

Ryder KOs Akkawy, wins WBA interim 168lb title

John Ryder (28-4, 16 KOs) captured the interim WBA super middleweight title with an impressive third round knockout of previously unbeaten Bilal Akkawy (20-1-1, 16 KOs) in a scheduled twelve round bout.
Ryder Emily02
Ryder, a southpaw who was slated to face off against former world champion David Lemieux in the evening’s co-featured bout before Lemieux withdrew due to injury, started slow against his substitute opponent, probing with his right jab for most of the first two rounds while Akkawy offered little in return. Ryder upped his output in round three, which changed the complexion of the fight, as Ryder dropped Akkawy early in the round with a right hook, sending Akkawy rolling head over heels from the punch.

Undercard Results from Stockton, California

By Robert Hough at ringside

After days of dizzying hype, fighting in an arena full of hometown support, expectations, hopes and drown-out-the-ring-announcer crowd noise, Stockton’s teenage star Gabriel Flores Jr. (13-0, 6 KOs) delivered. The lightweight scored a one-punch knockout of Eduardo Pereira Reis (23-6, 19 KOs) at 1:14 of the third round.

Flores Jr., who turned 19 on Wednesday, spent essentially no time getting a sense of Reis, immediately attacking with surly intentions, flashing a shower of jabs and artful combinations. Reis got a few things done when he got off first, but much of the fight was Flores Jr., pressing the action with an I-will-hurt-you look in his eyes.

South El Monte, California’s Joseph Diaz Jr. (29-1, 15 KOs) stopped Freddy Fonseca (26-3-1, 17 KOs) of Nicaragua in round seven of a scheduled twelve round super featherweight bout.

Diaz started off fast, outlanding the aggressive Fonseca in the early rounds. Keeping up a fast pace Diaz displayed great ring generalship as his hand speed was just too much for the Nicaraguan. Continuing to outclass his opponent, Diaz stood in the pocket in the fifth making Fonseca miss and cracked him with a solid right. The hand speed was too much for Fonseca as Diaz just kept coming, a straight left by Diaz got it started as he followed up with a combo dropping the Nicaraguan. However, Diaz hand speed and skills were too much as an accumulation of punches forced the corner to throw in the towel as the referee stepped in to stop the fight at 2:07 of the seventh.

Radivoje Kalajdzic: “About two years ago, I quit boxing. I had a really bad injury, got a job and went up to 225 pounds. Mentally, physically, I was done. Then, I had this procedure, stem cells, and over time it did a miracle. Look at me now. I’m on ESPN fighting for a world title. Life is great.”
