  Petrov Manhandles & Dismantles Perez  
By William Trillo

It was a night full of knockouts on The Golden Boy promoted card at Indio's Fantasy Springs Casino on Friday night. The evening was capped of with a stellar performance by Petr Petrov (38-4-2, 18 KO's) as he completely overwhelmed Michael Perez (24-2-11 KO's) in a lightweight battle that was a WBA title eliminator. Petrov dropped Perez early and never let up. By the time the sixth round was over Petrov had done enough damage to have this scheduled 12 round event come to a grinding halt. The corner of Perez had seen enough and did not allow him to continue. This was a very impressive performance by Petrov who is now looking for his well earned shot at a World Title.

Stay tuned for complete photo results of the entire Knockout night.

The Mail Pouch: McGarry Chimes In Again
 
By William Trillo
It looks like our avid reader David McGarry is becoming a regular contributor to our site and we welcome his on point thoughts. Allow me to step back and allow McGarry to break down the coming events for the month of October.

Dear Mr. Trillo,

September was a bad month for British boxing and October could hardly have got off to a worse start with news that heavyweight champion Tyson Fury allegedly testing positive for cocaine. Not only will Fury be stripped of his titles, but it means Wladimir Klitschko is going to be with us for a while longer, telling everyone who'll listen how he was going to win back his titles. Yeah right, you planned on throwing punches this time, did you Wladimir? Worst of all, Tyson's antics have dragged down the career of his unbeaten younger cousin, Hughie Fury.

  Brits Continue To Mix It With Elite  
It’s been a hectic few weeks for British boxing fans, with several high profile figures in action along with another postponement in the Tyson Fury, Wladimir Klitschko world title fight. Unfortunately, after the highs of a few months ago, the British fighters have relinquished some of the titles that they had held.

Kell Brook lasted five rounds with the brutal knockout king Gennady Golovkin, whilst Liam Smith was stopped by the supremely talented Canelo Alvarez in America. After that, all attention turned to Manchester, where local lad Anthony Crolla would take on Jorge Linares with his WBA Lightweight title on the line along with the Venezuelans WBC Diamond belt.

The Power Of Cinnamon
 
By William Trillo
I must admit I can’t argue with the drawing power of The Cinnamon Kid (AKA Canelo). With some 51,000+ fans packed into that Texas Stadium this past weekend it’s pretty clear Canelo is a surefire ticket seller. It’s also undeniable that his power shots to the head and body are equally impressive. You can confer with Liam Smith on that matter.

What is in question is his propensity to get hit and what will happen if and when GGG should land the same type of shots on Canelo that Smith was connecting with all night. Until that fight with Golovkin is consummated that will be the million dollar question.

  Canelo Stops Smith In 9  
Canelo Alvarez (now 47-1-1, 34 KO's) won the WBO Light Middleweight Title from previous holder Liam Smith with a 9th round stoppage that endured three knockdowns along the way. Right away the skill level was noticeable as Canelo was simply too fast and too strong for Smith. Canelo would land an assortment of punches on an offensive Smith who showed very little defense. Smith did have some moments in almost each round, landing quite a few big shots of his own, both to the body and the head, but Canelo's higher output kept him in the lead. In round 7 a right hand to the head buckled Smith and sent him down for the first time in his career. Smith was game and fought back, but would be dropped again in the 8th following a left to the body. In round 9 the damage had already been done as another left to the body sent Smith down with no count necessary. Final time was 2:28. Smith drops to 23-1-1 with 13 KO's.

After the fight, Max Kellerman yet again asked Canelo about fighting Gennady Golovkin, and again Canelo said "I don't fear any one", yet failed to fully answer the question and even walked away from the interview in obvious frustration.

More To Come...

  Sergiy Derevyanchenko Sounds Off On Canelo Naming Rosado-Monroe Winner As Possible Dec. Opponent
"He Should Be Ashamed To Call Himself Middleweight Champion!"
 
Since turning pro in July 2014, former Ukrainian amateur standout Sergiy Derevyanchenko (9-0, 7KO's) (32-1 including the World Series of Boxing) has let his fists do the talking for him in the ring, as he has climbed the rankings of the middleweight division at a blistering pace. Already rated #2 in the IBF world ratings, Derevyanchenko has looked absolutely sensational with each passing performance and is honing in on the opportunity to fight for his first world title. Upon hearing recent reports that the winner of the Gabriel Rosado-Willie Monroe Jr. bout this Saturday on the undercard of Canelo Alvarez's world title match against Liam Smith, the usually quiet and well-mannered Derevyanchenko couldn't help but voice his disgust with Canelo.

  Team Commey Disappointed
With Decision, Demand Rematch
 
Ghanaian lightweight star Richard Commey was left bitterly disappointed following the decision to his vacant IBF World title fight with Robert Easter Jr. last Friday at the Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania.

The 29 year-old from Accra found himself on the wrong end of a split decision, with judges John McKaie (114-113) and Craig Smith (113-114) separating the fighters by a single point, and Ron McNair (112-115) giving the home fighter a three point lead, despite a close fight and Commey scoring an eighth-round knockdown.

There aren't many fighters these days calling out undefeated two-division world champion Terence Crawford, one of boxing's pound-for-pound best. Felix Diaz is, though. This is a fight that should be made.

Diaz (18-1, 8KO's), the only boxer to win an Olympic gold medal for the Dominican Republic, is coming off a career-changing performance back in July. He dominated highly regarded, undefeated welterweight contender Sammy Vasquez, though he is a true super lightweight. Following his victory over Vasquez, Diaz signed with promoter Lou DiBella, with the goal of fighting the biggest names in the sport, and Crawford is at the very top of his list.

Sometimes You CAN Win For Losing
 
By William Trillo
Over this past weekend boxing fans were treated to some very gritty and gutsy performances inside the squared circle. The grits and guts were supplied by Kell Brook, Carlos Cuadras and Jesus Soto-Karass. The common denominator for these three warriors is that they came up on the short end in their respective contests inside the squared circle.

Contrary to the opinion of some who think a loss is a death sentence, I have always been of the thinking that a loss can be the very best thing for your career if you learn from it and never make the same mistakes again.

  Kamegai Stops Karass After Eight  
By William Trillo @ Ringside
Super Welterweight Jesus Soto Karass (28-11-4, 18 KO’s) was hurt early in the first round by Yoshihiro Kamegai (27-3-2, 24 KO’s) and that was just a glimpse of what was coming over the next few rounds. In their first fight everything was pretty even but in the sequel this fight belonged almost completely to Kamegai while it lasted. Like the first fight this one had its moments of wild exchanges but they were too few and far between for Karass who never appeared to get past that first round thumping. Kamegai dropped some heavy leather again in round seven that sent Karass into clinching mode one more time. The next round would spell doom for the brave Mexican Warrior as Kamegai was whipping him from pillar to post. Karass lasted through the eighth but that was all she wrote as the fight was brought to a halt after that. Kamegai gets the much deserved TKO victory after eight.

                                                                                                                         
  Fabulous Forum Off TV Undercard Results  
By William Trillo @ Ringside
Lightweight Ryan Martin (16-0, 9 KO’s) took a hard fought unanimous decision over the rugged Cesar Villarraga (9-2, 4 KO’s). Martin was clearly the sharper fighter in this one but things could have been a lot different if Villarraga had a decent pair of shoes on. At one point the ref halted the bout and ordered his corner to tape up his shoes to try and get the kid some traction. Nothing would help and because of that Martin had it all in his favor while his foe was slip sliding away.

Lightweight Chazz Moleta had his pro debut spoiled as Brahmabigi Montgomery (2-1-1, 1 KO) put him Chazz down and out in round 2.

Flyweight Seniesa Estrada (8-0, 1 KO) defeated Nancy Franco (15-10 -2,4 KO’s) by unanimous decision. The most exciting moment of the bout was when the fight was announced incorrectly giving Franco the victory, albeit short lived.

Note: Can we please stop shoving women’s boxing onto these big cards. Sorry but the panache has come and gone years and years ago…no one cares.

                                                                                                                         
  Golovkin Stops Game Brook In 5
After Corner Throws In Towel
 
Gennady Golovkin (now 36-0, 33 KO's) retained the WBC and IBF World Middleweight Titles over Welterweight Champion Kell Brook when Brook's corner threw in the towel in the 5th round. This is a fight not many expected would happen in the first place, then when it was made many figured the weight difference would be the deciding factor. It was.

Golovkin was able to hurt Brook early with his power, but Brook was able to box beautifully and show his superior skills in rounds 2 and 3. Golovkin's pressure would just be too much and ultimately what won him the fight. Brook just couldn't hold up to a real middleweight, as he began to break down in the 4th. In round 5, Golovkin started landing a number of punches and Brook's corner, a bit prematurely, jumped on the canvas to throw in the towel for their fighter.

After the fight Golovkin gave himself a 4 out of 10 on performance, knowing he was getting outboxed at certain moments and had to change the pace. Golovkin also said he "had no fear" of Brook once the first round was over, mentioning "he is not real middleweight" (what gave that away?). Golovkin showed more interest in fighting WBO Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders over the much talked about fight with Canelo Alvarez, stating he was most interested in unifying all the belts.

McGarry gives his thoughts on the battle and what he expects to see. Although we have not always seen eye to eye, I think this time he has pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Tom Loeffler Q & A: Chocolatito vs. Cuadras
 
By William Trillo
This coming weekend in Los Angeles Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, (45-0, 38 KO’S) will take on WBC Super Flyweight World Champion Carlos “El Principe” Cuadras, (35-0-1, 27 KO’s). Gonzalez, the consensus Pound For Pound best fighter in the world has big goals ahead of him in this fight, both figuratively and literally.Pound4Pound spoke to K2 Promotions Tom Loeffler about the magnitude of this fight and what it means to Chocolatito.

Pound4Pound: Could this be one of those matchups where both fighters are defined as great, like Leonard and Hearns, Ali and Frazier?

Tom Loeffler: This is definitely a career defining fight for both fighters. For Roman it’s to achieve a milestone that his idol Arguello wasn't able to achieve with a title in a 4th division and for Cuadras to be able to beat the top P4P fighter would put him on top of the boxing world.

Lemieux Will Fight Rios Instead Of Stevens
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL - The Montrealer middleweight David Lemieux was supposed to fight the American Curtis Stevens October 22nd at Bell Centre in Montréal, but he will face the Argentinian champion, Cristian Fabian Rios. Rios does not have a great record (21-7-3), but he's never lost by KO or TKO.

For Lemieux (35-3-0), it will be a first bout since his win by TKO in the fourth round against Glen Tapia (23-3-0), from New Jersey, May 7th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The promoter-manager Camille Estephan will hold a press conference Tuesday afternoon at Bell Centre, to explain why Lemieux changed of opponent. According different sources, Estephan has been obliged to forget Stevens, because HBO was not available to televise the bout October 22nd.

  Mayfield Wants Eyubov Rematch  
Having had a week to consider his controversial decision loss to Kazakhstan's Bakhtiyar Eyubov (11-0, 10 KOs), San Francisco welterweight Karim Mayfield says he's not happy.

Fighting in the opening fight on ShoBox: The New Generation® last Friday, August 19, at Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, New York, Mayfield (19-4-1, 11 KOs) appeared to outpunch and outwork his unbeaten foe, especially in the last four rounds. Despite having the statistical advantage - and winning in the eyes of the Showtime commentators, most of the ringside media, the fans in attendance and a worldwide outcry - Mayfield found himself on the wrong side of a 10-round split decision (95-94 twice for Eyubov and 95-94 for Mayfield) at the end of their exciting battle.
