  GGG Makes Short Work Of Rubio  
By William Trillo @ Ringside

Middleweight Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28 KO’s) needed one round plus another one minute and nineteen seconds to dispose of Marco Antonio Rubio (59-7-1, 51 KO’s). After completely dominating Rubio over the first three minutes GGG turned up the heat in round two.

It was an uppercut that sent Rubio into the ropes and then a looping left hand to the head that put Rubio down and out for good. He could not answer referee Jack Reiss ten count and the fight was over. Officially thye bout was stopped at the 1:19 mark of round two.

With the WBA Super World middleweight title, International Boxing Organization World middleweight title and the Interim WBC World middleweight title in tow Golovkin made an entirely new fan base as the crowd in Southern California fell in love with him. No doubt we will see GGG in Los Angeles in 2015, hopefully the next time will be a more meaningful and competitive bout.

                                                                                                                         

  Walters Crushes Nonito  
By William Trillo @ Ringside

Featherweight Nonito Donaire (33-3,21 KO’s) was convincingly destroyed by Jamaica’s KO King Nicholas Walters (25-0, 21 KO’s) in a battle for the WBA Super World featherweight title. Nonito came out looking aggressive but it was only a matter of time before the power punching Walters began to chop up Donaire. Walters was caught early with Donaire leather and was hurt but he did not let shaky moment deter him.

By the end of round five Donaire’s face was a mess, swollen cut and bloody. It was pretty clear the fight would not last much longer and it did not.

At the end of a brutal sixth round Walters landed a thudding blow to the top of Nonito’s head and that was all she wrote. Donaire was face first on the canvas and Walters was jumping for joy as the bout was halted at the 2:59 mark of round six signaling the beginning of the reign of this heavy handed fighter from Jamaica.

                                                                                                                         

  StubHub Center Undercard Results  
By William Trillo @ Ringside
Light heavyweight Edwin Rodriguez (25-1,16 KO’s) took a unanimous decision over Azea Augustama (17-2,9 KO’s) in a ten round bout that was difficult to watch. Even more difficult was trying to figure out why Rodriguez was posing and posturing all night. The antics came off as a tad more than arrogant. Considering that Rodriguez is trying to rehabilitate his career after the Andre Ward debacle his act was ill advised and hard to swallow. Final scores read 100-90 twice and 99-91 in favor of Rodriguez.

Middleweight Marcos Reyes (32-2,24 KO’s) dropped Abraham Han (23-1,14 KO’s) in round six but it wasn’t enough to impress the judges as Han was giving a gift with a majority decision win. The 10 round fight was expected to end early but outside of the one knockdown this fight was not the expected barn burner. Reyes was deducted a point for hitting after the bell but that doesn’t explain two judges cards of 97-91 in favor of Han. The other card that was dead even at 94-94 was the most realistic tally, all be it for naught.

Light welterweight Jaime Ocegueda (9-0-1, 6 KO’s) stopped Moris Rodriguez (5-5-1, 3 KO’s) in the sixth and final round of the first crowd pleasing battle of the night. This fight was a back and forth battle that saw both fighters hurt and on shaky legs numerous times. Ocegueda dropped Rodriguez midway through round six. After getting to his feet Rodriguez was pummeled into submission at the 2:31 mark.

Featherweight Walter Sarnoi (16-4, 10 KO’s) defeated Sergio Najera (8-16-2,2 KO’s) by unanimous decision in a fight that’s single highlight was a low blow in the third. Other than that this fight was as dull as the ass end of a butter knife. Final scores in favor of Sarnoi read 40-35, 40-35 & 39-36.

Lightweight Ruslan Madiev (2-0) dropped Oscar Rojas (0-1) en route to a 4 round unanimous decision victory. Final scores read 40-35 across the board for the victorious Madiev.

13th Contender In The 175 Pound Division
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL - The Montréal Russian Artur Beterbiev has only six bouts of experience in pro boxing, but the WBC is considering him now as his 13th contender in the light heavyweight division.

September 27th at Bell Centre in Montréal, Beterbiev, a former amateur world champion and former winner of the amateur World Cup, won the most significant bout of his career. He won the vacant NABF light heavyweight North American championship, in beating the former IBF light heavyweight champion of the world, Tavoris Cloud (24-3-0), by KO with less than four minutes of action.

  Odlanier Solis Twists Ankle In Training, Rematch Against Tony Thompson Postponed To Late Nov.  
The rematch between Odlanier Solis and Tony Thompson originally planned to take place on October 18th at CASTELLO in Dusseldorf (Germany) has to be postponed after "La Sombra" Solis suffered a sprained ankle in training in Miami.

"I flew straight to Miami when I heard of the injury to see how bad it is", says promoter Ahmet Oner. "Fortunately, the doctor says that no ligaments have been torn and nothing is broken. Solis has to take a break in training for ten days but can go right back to work after that. So we will definitely do the fight before the end of the year. Right now we are looking at November 22 as new date but we have to reconfirm with all parties involved including team Thompson, the venue, TV etc. We want to keep the show at CASTELLO in Dusseldorf so that the already sold tickets would still be valid."

Krusher's "Secret" Weapon: John David Jackson
 
By William Trillo
Most boxing fans know that when Sergey Kovalev takes on Bernard Hopkins in November to unify their respective Light Heavyweight titles he will have former Champion John David Jackson in his corner. But how many people are aware that Jackson employed Hopkins as a sparring partner back when he was Champion, fought Hopkins in the twilight of his career and was employed by Hopkins as a trainer to help Bernard prepare to fight southpaw fighters? It is for that reason I believe Hopkins always stated away from a battle with Kovalev. In this interview you will find out why Jackson believes Hopkins finally decided to fight Kovalev. We also get some insight as to what Jackson expects come fight night.

Bute Is Looking For A WBC Elimination Bout
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL — Finally, it’s not a WBC Intercontinental bout which interests Lucian Bute, but an WBC light heavyweight elimination bout. The WBC ratings committee confirmed that Bute is actually considered as the fifth contender in the 175 pounds division, in spite of his defeat against the Montrealer Jean Pascal January 18th at Bell Centre in Montréal.

Jean Bédard, the promoter of the InterBox Group, corrected his comments Monday. He will solicit the WBC championship committee in hoping that the World Boxing Council will sanction the bout Bute-Bolonti as elimination bout. December 6th at Bell Centre, Bute (31-2-0) will be involved in the main event, a bout opposing him to the Argentinian Roberto Feliciano Bolonti (35-3-0).
