  Klitschko vs. Jennings: Maybe Not Ali/Frazier,
But Jennings Came To Fight
 
By Tim Donaldson
Photos: "Sugar" Ray Bailey

I’m not going to lie. I wanted Wladimir Klitschko to lose. Maybe it’s my love for a good underdog story. Maybe it’s the fact that I identify myself as a Philadelphian. Sure, I grew up in South Jersey, but we have no city of our own. Maybe it’s just that I think it is time for a new champion in the Heavyweight division. Whatever the reason, I went to this fight not as the unbiased boxing writer; I went to this fight as the Bryant Jennings fan. So I told myself on the train ride up to New York, as the family with the three young girls in princess outfits complete with tiaras acted nothing like princesses and screamed and yelled at each other right up until we pulled into Penn Station, that Jennings could pull this off.

  Jose & Danny Roman Both
Victorious In Locked ‘N Loaded
 
By Barbara Pinnella

This Friday night Thompson Boxing Promotions presented Locked ‘N Loaded, held at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA. The main event of the evening saw Jose Roman (20-1-1, 14 KOs) going up against Martin Cardona (18-5, 13 KOs). This fight was scheduled for eight rounds in the super lightweight division.

Both men ran out of their respective corners to start this main event, but it was Roman who spent most of the round shooting off combinations that were landing on Cardona. A good start for Jose. Martin spent most of the second round running, dancing around, and skipping backwards to avoid being hit by Jose. Unfortunately for him, it didn’t work, as Roman continued his combination attack.

  Wladimir "Clinch"ko Holds Onto Titles Once Again  
Wladimir Klitschko (now 64-3, 54 KO's) retained the IBF, WBA and WBO Heavyweight Title with a unanimous decision over Bryan Jennings. The fight mainly consisted of HOLDING and CLINCHING, as most of Wladimir's fights do. This time, referee Michael Griffin gave numerous warnings throughout, threatening to take a point numerous times, but only finally did in the 10th, when the fight was already too late to change the pace. Klitschko went on to holding even more in the final two rounds, but no additional point was taken. Jennings did land a few big shots, but with all the holding it was hard for him to get much of anything else done. Final scores were 116-112 twice and 118-109. Jennings drops to 19-1 with 10 KO's.

  Ali Outworks Santana  
Sadam Ali (now 22-0, 13 KO's) won a 10-round unanimous decision over tough Francisco Santana where both men had moments. Santana started strong within the first 3 rounds, catching Ali on the ropes in the 3rd. But it was Ali's defense and countering shots that wore Santana down and made it hard for him to land anything clean. Santana would get in a few left hooks, flush on the chin in the 8th, but Ali would come back in the 10th to stagger Santana, onto winning wide with scores of 97-93 twice and 100-90. Santana drops to 22-4-1 with 11 KO's.

  147-Pound Weight Class Takes Center
Stage Again For Floyd vs. Manny
 
It has often been said that “as the heavyweight division goes, so goes boxing,” but that has not always been the case and, in fact, might not even be valid when viewed from a comprehensive perspective dating back to the late 19th century. In Boxing, German author Bertram Job’s epic, 420-page coffee-table dissertation on all aspects of the sweet science, he writes that, “Elegance is the trademark of the slim and nimble stars in the under 147-pound weight class that has attracted insiders and admirers of beauty like no other.” Click Here For More

  Matthysse Outboxes Provodnikov In
More One-Sided Bout Than Expected
 
Lucas Matthysse (now 37-3, 34 KO's) won a majority decision over Ruslan Provodnikov in a fight that produced some of the fireworks most expected, but not all. From round 1, Matthysse was peppering Provodnikov to the head with jabs, rights and uppercuts with both hands. An accidental headbutt in round 2 opened up a cut over Provodnkov's left eye. Matthysse continued boxing Provodnikov's head off in the 3rd. In round 4, Provodnikov finally landed and the two began to trade. Then in round 5, Matthysse was back to outboxing Provodnikov at ease again. In the 6th, Provodnikov was hurt to the body and backed away for the first time in the fight. Matthysse would win the 7th through the 10th. Then in the 11th, Provodnikov caught Matthysse with a perfect left hook that staggered him and had him seriously hurt. Matthysse made it out of the round. The final round was close, but not enough to close the wide gap created by Matthysse. Final scores were a bit closer than expected, but at least went to the rightful winner this week at 114-114 and 115-113 twice. Provodnikov drops to 24-4 with 17 KO's.
                                                                                                                         
  Crawford Blasts Out Dulorme In 6
To Win WBO Super Lightweight Title
 
Terence Crawford (now 26-0, 18 KO's) stopped Thomas Dulorme in the 6th round, following 3 knockdowns to win the vacant WBO Super Lightweight Title. This was Crawford's first fight up from Lightweight and you wouldn't have noticed. Crawford looked more relaxed and stronger than before. Dulorme came out swinging with big shots, but none of them landing, while Crawford timed perfect connecting counters. In the 6th, a strong right to the chin sent Dulorme down. Dulorme was on uneasy legs and went down again following another combination. Crawford jumped on him for the finish, putting Dulorme down a 3rd time and the fight was waived off at 1:51. Dulorme drops to 22-2 with 14 KO's.

Mateusz Masternak (34-2, 24 KOs) has vowed to make ‘The Man of Stone’ Ruben Angel Mino (26-2, 26 KOs) crumble when the cruiserweights clash on April 25 at the Columbia Hall in Berlin.

Following an impressive points victory over former cruiserweight king Jean-Marc Mormeck, Masternak looks well on his way to a world title challenge.
