Tete beats Narvaez in snoozer

WBO bantamweight champion Zolani Tete (27-3, 21 KOs) scored a boring twelve round unanimous decision over 42-year-old former two-division world champion Omar Narvaez (48-3-2, 25 KOs) on Saturday night at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Tete towered over Narvaez and won easily 120-108 on all three cards. Narvaez was in survival mode from the opening bell, much like he was in 2011 against Nonito Donaire when he suffered his first loss.

Davis-Cuellar clash for WBA 130lb title tonight

While the clash between Adrien Broner and Jessie Vargas gets top billing on tonight’s Showtime telecast from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, the WBA 130-pound “super” world championship clash between former champions Gervonta “Tank” Davis (19-0, 18 KOs) and Jesus Cuellar (28-2, 21 KOs) could steal the show.

Davis, from Baltimore, lost the IBF 130lb title on the scale last August, but this time he made the weight. “I had a lot of distractions last camp that led to me missing weight,” says Davis. “From that day forward I was focused on getting back to a world title shot. I let people down when I lost the title on the scale, but now I’m more focused…I want to show that I have the skills and ability to take over the sport of boxing.”

Argentinian Cuellar’s only setback was a split decision loss to Abner Mares. “This is going to be all action,” he promised. “Expect to see a war with me raising my hand at the end of the night. I’m going to do whatever it takes…the plan is to go out there and win that belt.”

Khan: I’m hitting my peak years

Amir Khan believes he’s hitting his peak years ahead of his comeback clash against Phil Lo Greco at a sold-out Echo Arena in Liverpool tonight, live on ESPN+. Khan steps back through the ropes for the first time in almost two years since facing Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in Las Vegas in May 2016 and the Liverpool fight fans will be the first to see him on UK soil in nearly five years. The former unified super lightweight ruler takes on Phil Lo Greco – who has former two-time super welterweight king Fernando Vargas in his corner.

Khan will have a new face backing him in Joe Goossen, who replaced an unwell Virgil Hunter as trainer for Khan’s camp, and the 31-year-old has allayed fears that the change will hurt his comeback – and says Goossen has bolstered his defensive skills

“I’ve always liked the way that Joe trains his fighters,” said Khan, who scaled 150lbs. “He’s trained some great fighters like Corrales and Casamayor. They’re fighters with a similar style to me so I thought Joe would be a good fit and we got in touch, got on and chose to work with him for the rest of camp and it’s worked well.

Broner makes attitude adjustment at weigh-in

It was a kinder, gentler, more respectful Adrien Broner who showed up at Friday’s weigh-in following his profanity-laced outburst at Thursday’s final press conference. Broner faces Jessie Vargas tonight on Showtime in a battle of former world champions.

Adrien Broner: “We had a helluva camp. It was the first time doing a full camp with Uncle Kev, which is what I call him. You know him as Coach Kevin Cunningham. It was very militant, but we got through it. It’s something that was always there [urgency]. You know, something had to be brought out of Adrien Broner and tomorrow night I will be victorious and I will put on a good show.”

Jessie Vargas: “All of the hard work is done. Now all I have to do is go out there and entertain my fans. I have a great team behind me that keeps me focused and helps me avoid any distractions or negativity.”

Ornelas wins vacant NABA title in Las Vegas

By Jeff Zimmerman

Local fan favorite bantamweight Max Ornelas earned the NABA title in a tough but convincing victory over Fort Worth’s Tony Lopez at the Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas as the main event of the Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Card that was also shown live on beIN Sports. The scores read 79-73 twice and 80-72 for the UNLV student, a criminal justice major, who had the crowd chanting his name throughout the fight.

Ornelas displayed a crisp jab from the opening bell while Lopez mostly stayed in a defensive posture to fend on the 19-year-old aptly called the “baby face assassin.” Ornelas was not surprised by the tactics of the defensive-minded Lopez.

“I knew that was going to happen. I know he gets tired as the rounds go so I kept pushing and I knew he would be in that defensive stance, so I was working on shots just to take advantage of it.” Continue reading “Ornelas wins vacant NABA title in Las Vegas”

Tete defends against 42-year-old Narvaez

By Ron Jackson

South Africa’s Zolani Tete from Mdantsane in the Eastern Cape makes the second defense of his WBO bantamweight belt when he meets the veteran former WBO flyweight and junior-bantamweight champion Omar Andres Narvaez of Argentina at the SSF Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Saturday night. Both fight from the southpaw stance with the 30-year-old Tete against the 42-year Narvaez in what could be an even fight despite the age of the Argentinean.

Narvaez (48-2-2, 25 KOs) has had an outstanding career since making his pro debut in December 2000, making numerous defenses of the WBO flyweight and junior bantamweight belts. However, despite this, he is not the same fighter that he was, and was smashed to defeat in two rounds by Japan’s Naoya Inoue in December 2014.

Promoter: GGG-Vanes will break StubHub record

Promoter Tom Loeffler says the May 5 clash between middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and WBC #1 154-pounder Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan is a hot ticket, especially on Cinco de Mayo since GGG is “the ultimate Mexican-style boxer.”

“Gennady is a huge draw in Southern, California,” proclaimed Loeffler. “All three of his Los Angeles area world title fights have sold out. It’s been over two years since Gennady last fought in his adopted hometown. That combined with the event taking place on Cinco De Mayo, has created a tremendous demand for tickets to this fight. Gennady set the attendance record for boxing at StubHub in 2014 and we project to shatter that record on May 5.” Continue reading “Promoter: GGG-Vanes will break StubHub record”
