PBC On ESPN Fails Miserably
By William Trillo
When long time and respected Southern California boxing scribe Francisco Salazar takes you to task you know you have problems. Salazar rarely, if ever, has a negative word to say about boxing shows, so when I saw him take a shot at the PBC card (via Facebook) that aired on Saturday night I knew I wasn't the only one who saw this event as a huge misfire.

Rosie Perez may be the biggest female boxing fan on the planet but thrusting her into a guest analyst position was ill-advised at best. And is it just me or has Teddy Atlas become a caricature of himself? Click Here For Full Blog

  Garcia Stops Malignaggi In 9  
Danny Garcia (now 31-0, 18 KO's) made his Welterweight debut and stopped Paulie Malignaggi in 9 rounds. This fight wasn't so much a mismatch as it was a prime fighter vs. a shot fighter. Malignaggi just does not have what it takes to be a fighter in the ring anymore against top opposition as Garcia simply won with his size and power advantage. Garcia landed flush shots on the body and head of Malignaggi, but never scored any knockdowns, so the question if Garcia has brought his power up in the new weightclass is still in question. At the start of round 9, Malignaggi was told by referee Arthur Mercante Jr. that he wouldn't allow him to keep taking punishment. Moments later, Garcia landed a combination with Malignaggi against the ropes and the fight was waived off at 2:22. Malignaggi drops to 33-7 with 7 KO's.
  Jacobs Stops Mora In 2 After Both Go Down In 1st  
Daniel Jacobs (now 30-1, 27 KO's) retained the WBO Middleweight Title with a TKO win over Sergio Mora in just two rounds. The fight got off to a bit of a slow start, but a perfect counter right hook on the chin sent Mora down for the first time in the fight. Mora was up as Jacobs ran right in, carelessly walking into a left hook of his own, going down for the first time himself. In round 2, Jacobs came out swinging, landing a right hand on the side of the head that put Mora down a second time. Mora landed awkwardly on his right knee and twisted his ankle which he said he head "pop" and claimed it was "broken". Mora could not continue as the end came at 2:55. Mora said he wanted a rematch, Jacobs said "no rematch, why move backwards now", and called out Peter Quillin. Mora drops to 28-4-2 with 9 KO's.

  Kovalev "Krushes" Mohammedi In 3, As Expected  
Photo: William Trillo

Sergey Kovalev (now 28-0-1, 25 KO's) retained the IBF, WBA and WBO Light Heavyweight Titles with a 3rd round blowout of Nadjib Mohammedi. With odds at 100-1 there really wasn't anything that was going to surprise you tonight. No disrespect to Mohammedi, but he's been stopped early before, against lighter and less devastating punchers. Kovalev landed a right hand to the head that staggered Mohammedi in round 2. Another right put him down for the first time in the fight. Mohammedi was up on 9, but on uneasy legs. Mohammedi would grab Kovalev which resulted in two awkward takedowns that ultimately led to him escaping the round. In round 3, Kovalev just remained poised, picking shots, then landed another right hand followed by a jab that send Mohammedi down for the second time. Mohammedi did not beat the 10 count and it was waived off at 2:38. Mohammedi drops to 39-4 with 24 KO's. After the fight, Kovalev said he is ready to fight anybody, including a rematch with Jean Pascal, fights with Yunieski Gonzalez, Andre Ward, or even, if he ever decides to grow a heart, Adonis Stevenson.

More To Come.


  Despite Being A Great Action Fight, Pascal Gets Highway Robbery Decision Over Gonzalez  
Photo: William Trillo

Jean Pascal (now 30-3-1-1, 17 KO's) won an extremely, highly controversial unanimous decision over previously undefeated Yunieski Gonzalez. The fight was a war, with big bombs by both men, and it's sad that this type of decision will taint what was such a great fight, for both men. Pascal was rocked in the opening round and throughout, as Gonzalez threw knockout punches with every shot thrown. Gonzalez would tire down the stretch, allowing Pascal to have a few moments of his own, but it was too few compared to the train that was Gonzalez. Both men traded down the stretch, but it appeared that Gonzalez had this one in the bag, and despite appearing to lose the fight, Pascal had nothing to be ashamed of. However, the judges all scored the fight 96-84 in favor of Pascal as the entire Mandalay Bay audience erupted with booing. Gonzalez drops to 16-1 with 12 KO's.

More To Come.

Sullivan was hurt at times but prevailed in a very entertain slugfest. Fight was stopped at the 134 mark of round 8.

  Mandalay Bay Undercard Results  
Heavyweight Rodney Hernandez (8-2-1, 1 KO) took a split decision over Brice Ritani Coe (4-4-1) in a six round bout that was short on highlights. Final scores read 58-56 in favor of Coe and 59-55 & 58-56 giving the nod to Hernandez.
