Freddie Roach: "I Am The One Who
Ordered Mike Griffin To Stop The Fight"
 
By: Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL — One hour after the Jean Pascal's painful and humiliating lost against the Russian Sergey Kovalev, Saturday evening at Bell Centre in Montréal, the Californian trainer Freddie Roach said he was the one who asked to the referee Mike Griffin to stop the fight after the seventh round. “Jean did not want to surrender, I did, said Roach to the media at the press centre, about a hour after the fight. It’s absolutely true. After the sixth round, I mentioned to Pascal I wanted to throw the towel. He asked to not do it. He said: «give me another chance». But in the seventh round, it’s was not functioning at all for Jean, he was suffering a lot like he was in the fifth and sixth rounds, then I called Griffin to tell him to stop the bout. He did.” Click Here For Full Report

                                                                                                                         
  Jesse West Puts Barefield Down  
By Charles Presnell

Saturday night in Layton, UT, Jesse “Wildman” West (6-1, 4 KO’s) continued his winning ways with a second round knockout victory over the debuting Jamal Barefield. Barefield came out trying to use his five inch height advantage, nevertheless, it quickly became apparent that he had no solution to the pressure from West. With less than a minute left in the first round, West rocked Barefield with a left hook that clearly hurt Barefield. West let his foe off the hook and the round ended. The start of the second round and Barefield still looked to have difficulty with the confident West. Jesse was all business and ended it at 1:48 of the round after landing a couple left hooks that put Barefield down for the count. With the win Jesse won his third straight by KO and told this reporter that he is looking for bigger opportunities.

  Kovalev Intentionally Punished Pascal For 7 Rounds  
Sergey Kovalev (now 29-0-1, 26 KO's) retained the IBF, WBA & WBO Light Heavyweight Titles with another stoppage over Jean Pascal. This time it was all Kovalev as Pascal simply had no answers for the speed and power coming his way. A jab would drop Pascal in the opening round, but was wrongly ruled a slip. Kovalev would pound Pascal from corner to corner in round 5 in a 10-8 round. Pascal took another beating in round 6 and it was obvious Kovalev was intentionally making him pay by backing off every time he had Pascal hurt. Freddie Roach told Pascal he was ready to stop the fight, but Pascal urged him to give him one more round. Credit to Pascal for not quitting on his stool when he had every opportunity, but Roach did infact ask the fight be stopped after the 7th as he had seen his fighter take enough punishment. Pascal drops to 30-4-1-1 with 17 KO's.

After the fight, it was made clear that Andre Ward would need one or two more fights before an eventual showdown with Kovalev would be made. Kovalev said in the meantime he'd like to unify the titles with "Adonis Chickenson". We'll see if Stevenson will actually make it happen, or continue avoiding Kovalev.

  Julian Ramirez Captures WBC Youth Title

Featherweight Julian Ramirez (16-0, 8 KO’s) dominated every round over Christopher Martin (28-3, 9 KO’s) in a ten round fight that was disappointingly short on thrills. Blame Martin for the fight filled with lowlights as he fought in a defense only mode for most of the night and made it difficult for Ramirez to really put together punches and land anything of consequence.

  Garcia Wins Vacant WBC Welterweight Title
With Unanimous Decision Over Guerrero
 
Danny Garcia (now 32-0, 18 KO's) won a 12-round unanimous decision over Robert Guerrero to win the WBC Welterweight Title that was vacated by Floyd Mayweather when he retired. This fight had a few back and forth moments, but it was Garcia who controlled the fight defensively and simply countered Guerrero to an easy victory. Guerrero won a few early rounds, but in round 6 Garcia turned it completely in his favor by connecting with huge left and right hooks. Garcia could not miss and Guerrero simply walked forward into punches all night, often smother himself so he couldn't get much done. Most of the fight did consist of holding and arm grabbing, but both fighters saved the full-on action until the final 10 second that brought the crowd to their feet. Final scores were 116-112 on all three cards. Guerrero (now 33-4-1, 18 KO's) seemed to think otherwise, but it was a clear win for Garcia.

  Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Steven Stoller
Provides Analysis Of Glazkov's Knee Injury
 
The radiology report is in and it appears that heavyweight contender Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov suffered a more severe knee injury than originally believed in his bout with Charles Martin on Saturday night.

Dr. Steven Stoller, a, New Jersey Orthopedic Surgeon and who specializes in sports medicine, watched the Glazkov fight live last Saturday night. The doctor said that in the third round, while avoiding a punch, Glazkov's right knee "pivot shifted," which in layman's terms is a partial dislocation of the knee (and is indicative of an ACL injury), when he went down the first time, which the referee ruled a slip. Glazkov continued fighting until presumably injuring his knee further when the bout was called off with 30 seconds remaining in the third round.
