Luke Jackson insists that Carl Frampton is on the slide. The outspoken Australian challenges interim WBO featherweight champion Frampton at Belfast’s Windsor Park on August 18. At stake for Frampton is a likely fight with IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington but Jackson is out to prove that Frampton is no longer the force he was. Jackson, 33, believes that Frampton (25-1) has dipped as a fighter in his three contests since defeating Leo Santa Cruz two years ago. Continue reading “Jackson: Frampton is very beatable”

Tyron Zeuge now a free agent

Former WBA super middleweight champion Tyron Zeuge (22-1-1, 12 KOs) is now a free agent. According to Team Zeuge, promoter Sauerland Event GmbH has severed both promotional and managerial ties and will not pursue a rematch with Rocky Fielding, who dethroned Zeuge last month. The protégé of trainer Jurgen Brahmer therefore plans to press ahead with his career planning autonomously and independently.

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former world heavyweight challenger Alex Leapai (32-7-4, 26 KOs) scored a sensational round one round knockout over Roger Izonritei (12-7-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Referee Steve Marshall crowned Leapai at 2:59.

“We have received interest for fights against leading heavyweights, Cuban Luis Ortiz, and Britain’s Dereck Chisora and we’re pushing for another big fight in Germany or Russia,” Leapai’s trainer Noel Thornberry told the Courier Mail. “Alex is very well known in Russia because he beat their world #1 Denis Boytsov to get the fight with Klitschko. But we don’t have time to waste. Alex will be 39 shortly so we have to make every chance count!”

Heavyweight Corbin wins in Dallas, still unbeaten

By Jeff Zimmerman

Heavyweight Greg Corbin (16-0, 10 KOs) patiently walked down Homero Fonseca (14-9-3, 4 KOs) landing an occasional jab and right hand before Fonseca determined he had enough in the main event at the River Ranch Texas Horse Park in Dallas, Texas. After three uneventful rounds, Fonseca did not get off the stool for the 4th round and Corbin came away with the vacant IBF / USBA Gulf Coast heavyweight title in front of a raucous crowd.
Corbin 2
Corbin, out of Dallas, has been a pro since 2012 fighting mostly in Dallas and next store in Louisiana. He clearly has the size and physical attributes of the top heavyweights of the division but has never burst on to the national scene. At 37, the clock is ticking for Corbin to land some big career defining fights. Fonseca didn’t show much though to gauge where Corbin is at this stage of his career.

Perez, Prado victorious in Hobbs, NM

By David Finger at ringside

It goes without saying that New Mexico is a hotbed of great fighters and great fight cards, but it often comes as a surprise to casual boxing fans that one of New Mexico’s strongest fight towns is Hobbs, located in the Southeast corner of the state. But thanks to Isidro Castillo’s School of Hard Knocks Boxing Promotions, Lea County has quickly emerged as one of New Mexico’s most successful boxing towns. Saturday night (August 4th) saw Castillo and School of Hard Knocks continue their proud tradition of putting on excellent boxing in the Permian Basin with an action-packed card that featured a pair of local light heavyweights in the main event as well as a world class prospect in Aaron Perez on the undercard.

In the most notable fight of the night undefeated Aaron “Angel Baby” Perez proved that he is more than just a decent regional prospect as he scored a rare fourth round stoppage over the durable Gene Perez of Belen, New Mexico in a lightweight fight.

Kovalev Decision: Retirement or Rematch?

Kovalev’s trainer urges retirement…Krusher has rematch clause…will take some time to decide next move

Alvarez Kovalev Sumio17
Yvon Michel, promoter of newly crowned World Boxing Organization (WBO) light heavyweight champion Eleider “Storm” Alvarez confirmed during the postfight press conference that former champion Sergey Kovalev has a rematch clause and there are also mandatories to deal with.

Kovalev’s promoter Kathy Duva confirmed there is a rematch clause, but said it’s too early to say when or if the return fight would take place.

In Russian media, Kovalev’s trainer Abror Tursunpulatov has recommended that Kovalev retire. Kovalev stated it’s probably time to hang up the gloves, “but this is boxing so anything can happen. I will not make hasty decisions, time will pass, and I’ll decide what to do next.”

Kovalev didn’t attend the press conference, but posted a message on Instagram from the back of an ambulance. “I am on my way to the hospital to check my head, check my body … I feel OK. Thank you everyone, thank you very much to all the fans around the world for your support. I love you, and I’m fine.”

By Gary “Digital” Williams at ringside

Ashburn, VA middleweight Tori “Sho Nuff” Nelson wowed her hometown fans at the Michael and Son Sportsplex at Dulles in Sterling, VA with a sixth-round TKO of Tiffany “The Terminator” Woodard of Wilson, NC in the main event of the Ponytail Promotions card.

The two combatants fought on relatively even terms for the first four rounds as they exchanged punches in close quarters. Woodard tried to engage Nelson verbally but Nelson stuck to her game plan of staying with her jab. In the fifth round, Nelson found a home with her body shots which made Woodard take steps backwards.

Alvarez KOs Kovalev to win WBO 175lb title

By John DiSanto at ringside

Challenger Eleider “Storm” Alvarez, 24-0, 12 KOs, shocked light heavyweight champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev, 32-3-1, 28 KOs, with a burst of power in round seven of their scheduled 12 round title bout in Atlantic City.

Alvarez, behind on the scorecards, caught the champion with a long right hand in the seventh that deposited Kovalev on the seat of his pants. Sergey got up, but Alvarez did not let him off the hook. The Colombian landed a left-right combination that sent Kovalev to the canvas again. The champion rose a second time, but with the round winding down, Alvarez sent him to the floor for a third time with a three-punch series. When Kovalev hit the deck, referee David Fields halted the fight at 2:45 of round seven. The upset TKO earned Alvarez the WBO and IBA titles and shook up the 175-pound division. At the time of the stoppage, Kovalev was ahead 58-56, 59-55, 59-55.

The 10-bout card was promoted by Main Events and the two light heavyweight title fights were televised live on HBO.

Bivol decisions Chilemba to retain WBA 175lb title

By John DiSanto at ringside

WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol, 14-0, 11 KOs, retained his title with a workmanlike 12-round unanimous over sturdy South African Isaac “Golden Boy” Chilemba, 25-6-2, 10 KOs, on Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City.

Bivol, St. Petersburg, Russia, showed flashes of his lauded power early in the fight, but as the rounds progressed, he settled into a less dangerous approach to the fight. Before long he appeared to be fighting one-handed, prompting some ringsiders to wonder if the champ had injured his right hand. The right surfaced occasionally, but it was his left that accounted for most of his activity. Chilemba used a good left jab as his primary weapon, and lasted the full distance, as he had done against Sergey Kovalev two years ago. The victory, although rather ordinary, still kept Bivol on track for an eventual showdown with Kovalev. The scores for Bivol were 116-112 and 120-108 twice.

Tevin Farmer: I’m ready to fight anyone

Tevin “The American Idol” Farmer (26-4-1, 5 KOs), of Philadelphia, PA, won the IBF Junior Lightweight World Title today via 12-round unanimous decision against Australian Billy Dib (43-5, 24 KOs), at Technology Park, in Eveleigh, a suburb of Sydney, Australia.

Tevin Farmer: “Billy Dib is a hell of a fighter, he had a great career, and he’s a two-time world champion. He tried to bully me and that might have worked if I wasn’t from Philly. I’m the new champion of the world. It was a long time to get here, but there’s a long way to go. Nobody wanted to give me a shot, everybody was ducking me so I had to kick the door in. Now I’ve got the belt and everybody will want to start screaming my name. I’m ready to fight anyone and unify the titles.”

Promoter Lou DiBella: “I’ve never had a champion like Tevin Farmer. At 7-4-1, with all the odds against him, he decided he’d be a world champion. He went from 7-4-1 to 26-4-1, now with an IBF strap around his waist. Despite being shot through the hand protecting family and getting robbed in his last fight, he never stopped smiling and always believed in himself. Tevin is Philly to the core.”
