By Tim Nielson: Southpaw middleweight Willie Monroe Jr. (20-2, 6 KOs) showed off his skills last Saturday night in dazzling the crowd with a one-sided 10 round unanimous decision victory over former ESPN Boxcinco tourney winner John Thompson (17-3, 6 KOs) at the Turning Stone resort in Verona, New York. Monroe, 29, looked blazing fast and very powerful in winning a dominating 10 round decision over the game but limited 27-year-old Thompson. The southpaw Monroe Jr. was throwing heat from the … [Read more...] about Willie Monroe Jr. defeats John Thompson
By Tim Nielson: Junior middleweight contender Demetrius Andrade (23-0, 16 KOs) schooled Willie Nelson (25-3-1, 15 KOs) for 11 rounds before knocking him out in round 12 last Saturday night in their WBC junior middleweight title eliminator on the undercard of the Ruslan Provodnikov vs. John Molina Jr. card at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York. Andrade dropped Nelson with a right hand in the 12th to get the knockout. There was an additional knockdown in round 12, as well as … [Read more...] about Demetrius Andrade TKOs Willie Nelson
By Sean McDaniel: John Molina Jr. (28-6. 23 KOs) must be feeling pretty good right now about himself after his 12 round unanimous decision win last Saturday night over heavy favorite Ruslan Provodnikov (25-4, 18 KOs) at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York. Molina Jr. came into the fight as the B-side opponent expected to get knocked out, and he left as the winner after out-boxing the 32-year-old former WBO light welterweight champion Provodnikov in front of a large crowd. The … [Read more...] about John Molina defeats Ruslan Provodnikov
By Eric Thomas: Two-time Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko (6-1, 4 KOs) showed that he was far too good for WBO super featherweight champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez (29-3-3, 17 KOs) last Saturday night in obliterating the 33-year-old champion in five rounds and taking his WBO title at Madison Square Garden in New York. Lomachenko came into the fight the favorite to win, but I don’t think anyone envisioned the bout to be as one-sided as it turned out. Lomachenko knocked Martinez out with … [Read more...] about Lomachenko destroys Martinez
By Sarabjit Sandhu: Unbeaten heavyweight 21-year-old Hughie Fury (20-0, 10 KOs) is now ranked #6 by the World Boxing Organization following his recent seventh round technical decision win over journeyman Fred Kassi last April in a fight that ended with a cut that Hughie suffered. The results of that fight left a lot to be desired because bout was still being contested and Kassi appeared to be coming on strong at the time of the cut stoppage in round seven. The WBO should have thought hard … [Read more...] about Hughie Fury ranked #6 by WBO, thinks he’d beat Joshua
By Sarabjit Sandhu: In looking at some of unbeaten #13 IBF Dominic Breazeale’s fights recently, one cannot help but think that the sole reason why he was selected to fight for a title against IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (16-0, 16 KOs) is because he’s to utterly pedestrian as a fighter. Breazeale looked ready to be beaten in his last two fights against 43-year-old Amir Mansour and 36-year-old Fred Kassi. The fact that Breazeale won those two fights was a matter of luck and … [Read more...] about Was Breazeale selected for Joshua because he’s so flawed?
By Sean McDaniel: 35-yer-old former WBO cruiserweight belt holder Enzo Maccarinelli’s short three-fight winning streak came to a crashing halt on Friday night with him getting blown out by a younger No.9 WBC rated Dmytro Kucher (24-1, 18 KOs) in a 1st round knockout in their fight for the vacant EBU cruiserweight title at York Hall in Bethal Green in London, England. The ight was stopped at 2:48 of the 1st round. The results of this fight have to be seen as a major disappointment for … [Read more...] about Dmytro Kucher defeats Enzo Maccarinelli
By Sean McDaniel: Poor former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) really got worked over mentally and verbally by IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) in their Face to Face: Fury/Klitschko on BoxNation this week. Fury was talking circles around the 40-year-old Wladimir and making him look really bad in my view. Wladimir started off well in talking aggressively and appearing to play mind games, but Fury took over and made Wladimir look bad. It got so … [Read more...] about Face To Face: Fury/Klitschko – Full Show
