Lundy dominates Olusegun; Kielczweski stops Soto

 Lundy dominates Olusegun; Kielczweski stops SotoNew York, NY (7/19/13) – Earlier tonight, before a sold-out raucous crowd, DiBella Entertainment presented this week’s edition of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights at the historic Rockingham Park, in Salem, New Hampshire.

The 10-round main event featured a battle between WBC #3-rated junior welterweight Olusegun Ajose and WBC #5-rated “Hammerin’” Hank Lundy that ended with the latter winning a dominant 10-round unanimous decision.

Ajose was just two fights removed from his world title bid and first professional loss at the hands of Lucas Matthysse and was hoping an impressive victory over Lundy would put him back into the world title picture. Unfortunately, Lundy had other plans. Continue reading

John Molina stops Bey in 10th round

John Molina (26-3, 21 KO’s) was able to come back in the 10th round tonight to pull out a victory by stopping Mickey Bey (18-1-1, 9 KO’s) in the 10th round at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Going into the 10th round, it looked like a certain defeat for Molina, but he was able to connect with a short left hook to the head while in close with Bey.

The punch badly hurt Bey, who attempted to clinch, but Molina wouldn’t let. Molina kept throwing punch after punch until referee Vic Drakulich stepped in and halted the bout at 2:01 of the round.

Bey had been dominating the action in the three prior to the 10th, standing with his back against the ropes and beating Molina at his own game by slugging it out with him. At the start of the 10th, Bey unloaded with a sustained flurry of body and head shots that appeared to hurt Molina. He had Molina just standing there like a punching bag and he could pounded him the entire round if he had kept throwing punch. But it looked like Bey gassed out or got cautious all of a sudden because he backed off and stood dared Molina to come forward. Continue reading

Lundy defeats Olusegun

 Lundy defeats OlusegunHank Lundy (23-3-1, 11 KO’s) showed a great deal of improvement tonight in pulling off a minor upset in defeating Ajose Olusegun (31-2, 14 KO’s) by a fairly one-sided 10 round unanimous decision at the Rockingham Park, in Salem, New Hampshire, USA. Lundy fought a lot like Floyd Mayweather Jr. in beating what turned out to be an over-matched Olusegun by the judges scores of 100-90, 98-92, 98-92.

Lundy hurt Olusegun multiple times in the fight with hard left hands to head. Olusegun had no defense for Lundy’s left hands, and he was eating them continuously from the 4th.

Lundy found out early in the fight that he could counter Olusegun when he’d throw jabs. He’d wait on the jabs and fire a left hand and nail Olusegun. In the 4th round, Lundy hit Olusegun with some big left hands. At point he went to the ropes after getting hit and faked like he was shaken up. Continue reading

Pacman dares Floyd; assures he’s not over-the-hill

 Pacman dares Floyd; assures hes not over the hill“I was not mauled by Marquez, it was a lucky punch that knocked me out,” Manny Pacquiao explains in an ABS-CBN interview yesterday as he rejects Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s taunt and assures the fans he’s not over the hill yet.

Rightly so, Pacman was the one beating black and blue Juan Manuel Marquez into submission when the miracle blow suddenly hit the entire arena into shock during the quadrilogy. If not for the “lucky” punch, another round and Marquez would be out. The bloodied and bruised Marquez, gasping for breath, appeared to be the over the hill boxer in that bout had it not for the seer that hypnotized Pacquiao to fall twice. Continue reading

Carl Froch, A modern day great?

 Carl Froch, A modern day great?Carl Froch(31-2,22ko’s), Britain’s pound for pound number one is currently riding the crest of a wave. His win over Mikkel Kessler(46-3,35ko’s) catapulted him into the general public’s attention and has solidified him as being one of Britain’s greatest and most entertaining fighters. Had Froch had the publicity earlier on in his career as Amir Khan had and the likes of Luke Campbell and Anthony Joshua are now obtaining, who knows how much of a star the Nottingham man may have become.

As it is however, Carl has finally reached the top and is now bankable box office draw. The question is though, is Carl Froch, and can he ever become, a modern day great. In years to come will he be remembered as fondly as the likes of Eubank, Benn, Lewis, Hatton and Calzaghe. Continue reading

Arreola-Mitchell & Trout-Lara possible for September

 Arreola Mitchell & Trout Lara possible for SeptemberGolden Boy Promotions are reportedly looking to put together two big fights for September with heavyweight contenders Seth Mitchell vs. Chris Arreola and Austin Trout vs. Erislandy Lara, according to RingTV.

Trout-Lara would be a great fight for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez card, but it’s difficult seeing this fight being put on the card now that a huge chunk of the undercard fight money is going to pay Lucas Matthysse and Danny Garcia.

With the money those two fighters are getting, it’s possible that Golden Boy might not have enough to add other talented fighters to the card unless they’re willing to take less just to have the opportunity to be seen by millions. Continue reading

Floyd: I’ll fight Pacquiao if he signs with Mayweather Promotions

 Floyd: I’ll fight Pacquiao if he signs with Mayweather PromotionsFloyd Mayweather Jr. is no longer setting a condition that Manny Pacquiao turn his career around before he’ll fight him. That was what Mayweather Jr. had previously asked for Pacquiao to do before he’d agree to fight, given that Pacquiao has lost his last two fights.

Mayweather Jr. now wants Pacquiao to sign with Mayweather Promotions before he’ll agree to fight him. Pacquiao currently is signed with Top Rank though 2014.

Mayweather Jr. said to Yahoo Sports “I’m just letting you know that he’s not getting a fight with me. The only way he’s getting a fight with me is if he signs with Mayweather Promotions. He’s got to give me fights with Mayweather Promotions. If he don’t give me no fights under Mayweather Promotions, then he’s not getting the fight. That’s how it’s working now.” Continue reading

Building The Perfect Heavyweight!

Begging the pardon of Alexander Povetkin (who gets the next shot), the David Haye-Tyson Fury winner, Deontay Wilder and the tough and avoided Kubrat Pulev, but no-one looks like defeating heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko. Older brother Vitali, if he risks his fine record by sticking around too long and battling Father Time might, just might, be the victim of a young fighter being smack bang in the right place at the right time, but “Dr. Steel Hammer” looks set to walk away having remained unbeaten since way back in April of 2004.

Schaefer thinks Mayweather-Canelo will break PPV record

 Schaefer thinks Mayweather Canelo will break PPV recordGolden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer sees the September 14th Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fight card as having a great shot at beating the 6-year old PPV mark of 2.4 million buys set by Mayweather himself against the original “Golden Boy” Oscar De La Hoya in 2007 near the end of Oscar’s career.

Shaefer took a step in the right direction to break the PPV record with the addition of Lucas Matthysse vs. Danny Garcia to the fight card earlier today. That’s going to help but I’m not sure if it’s going to help enough. Continue reading

Manny Pacquiao: “I’m not a has been, I can still win fights!”

 Manny Pacquiao: “I’m not a has been, I can still win fights!”It has been a while since Manny Pacquiao said anything of substance, or really anything at all. For some time now, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been doing all the talking when it comes to Manny Pacquiao, recently stating:
