  Pacquiao Whitewashes Algieri Over 12,
Scoring SIX Knockdowns Along The Way
Photo: Chris Farina - Top Rank

Manny Pacquiao (now 57-5-2, 38 KO's) retained the WBO Welterweight Title with a hugely dominant performance over previously unbeaten Chris Algieri. The fight was not even close, pretty much a mismatch, and put shame to anyone who even thought Algieri had a chance. Pacquiao was simply too busy and landed at such a high percentage that Algieri was never in the fight.

Pacquiao would score a knockdown in round two when a punch that landed caused Algieri to jump back and slip in the corner. Round 5 would be Algieri's best round as he started to jab and keep Pacquiao at bay. In round 6, a combination put Algieri on the canvas, then again shortly after with another combination. Algieri would hit the canvas two more times in the 9th from power left hands, and even went down a sixth time in the 10th. Algeri was game to fight on, but there was really no need to keep this one going as final scores of 120-102 and 119-103 twice tell the accurate story. Algeri drops to 20-1 with 8 KO's.

After the fight, Pacquiao made it clear: "I am ready to fight [Floyd Mayweather] next year.


  Shiming Wins Unanimously Over OnesongchaiGym

Zou Shiming (now 6-0, 1 KO) won a 12-round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym. Shiming would take control early and score two brutal knockdown in the 2nd round, but OnesongchaiGym came back with some moments of his own. OnesongchaiGym was deducted a point in the 6th for low blows. OnesongchaiGym would close Shiming's left eye completely and looked on the verge of scoring a knockdown late in the fight, but Shiming stayed on his feet and managed to keep a safe distance. Final scores were 120-103 and 119-106 twice. OnesongchaiGym drops to 27-1-2 with 12 KO's.

  Lomachenko Shuts Out Piriyapinyo With One Hand

Vasyl Lomachenko (now 3-1, 1 KO) retained the WBO World Featherweight Title by putting on a 12-round clinic over Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo. Lomachenko won the first 6 rounds with ease, scoring a knockdown in the 4th after a blistering combination. In the 7th, Lomachenko had hurt his left hand on the head of Piriyapinyo and fought the remainder of the fight predominantly with the right hand. Lomachenko did not lose a single round as all three judges scored the fight identical at 120-107. Piriyapinyo drops to 51-2 with 33 KO's.

  Vargas Unanimous Over DeMarco  
Photo: Chris Farina - Top Rank

Jesse Vargas (now 26-0, 9 KO's) won a 12-round unanimous decision over Antonio DeMarco. The fight had it's ups and downs with both men having their moments. Vargas would suffer a cut on his left cheek in round 2 that never became a factor later on. Vargas would land good combinations in rounds 4 though 8, but DeMarco staggered Vargas late as he looked ready to go. Vargas kept his distance and allowed DeMarco to walk into counters for the final two rounds. Final scores were 116-112 on all three cards. DeMarco drops to 31-4-1 with 23 KO's.

  Carl Froch: The UK’s Most Underrated Fighter?  
The UK has a proud history of producing brave and highly popular pugilists, from fans favourites such as Henry Cooper and Frank Bruno to former heavyweight champion of the world David Haye. While fans in Great Britain are extremely knowledgeable and well versed in the history of pugilism, however, there remain a number of fighters who operate underneath the radar and fail to command the adulation that they truly deserve. Take Nottingham fighter and super middleweight champion Carl Froch, for example, who despite contesting a record twelve consecutive title fights does not boast the following of previous warriors such as Joe Calzaghe or Ricky Hatton.

Stiverne-Wilder: January 17th In Las Vegas?
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL — The promoter of the Eye Of The Tiger Management Group, the Montrealer Camille Estephan, should confirm soon that the WBC heavyweight championship of the world opposing the Montrealer Bermane Stiverne and the American Deontay Wilder, will be presented January 17th in Las Vegas. Apparently, the MGM Grand is interested to get this event.

Stiverne (24-1-1) won the vacant WBC crown May 10th at the USC Arena in Los Angeles, in beating the Californian Chris Arreola (35-4-0) for the second time, this time, by TKO in the sixth round (first time by unanimous decision). Wilder, a boxer of 29 years old from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is the mandatory challenger. He has a perfect record: 32-0-0, 32 wins by KO or TKO, all obtained in less than four rounds.

Stiverne won a vacant title, because the Ukrainian Vitali Klitschko (45-2-0) give up the crown last January to start a political career in his turbulent country.

The German Boxing Commission (Bund Deutscher Berufsboxer – BDB) and the World Boxing Council (WBC) have jointly declared the WBC Silver flyweight championship between Raja Amasheh and Amira Hamzaoui as a "no contest" due to irregularities in scoring and with the officials.

On October 18th in Saarbrücken, Germany, Hamzaoui had originally been declared the winner by split decision of the fight, and the WBC title. The WBF world flyweight championship was also on the line. WBF judges Toni Tiberi (97-94) and Vincent Dupas (96-94) had scored the fight in favor of Hamzaoui, while WBC judge Steve Mertz clearly scored the fight for Amasheh (98-94). Click Here For More
