Press Release Confirms: Mayweather CAN Read
 
By William Trillo
On Tuesday a press release was sent out to come to the defense of Floyd Mayweather Jr. The release stated that contrary to rumors flying around the internet that Mayweather could not read, he in fact can. A video was attached to the press release showing him reading a commercial for an upcoming college football game. After reading the statement and watching the video it is my opinion the press release may have done more harm than good.

Had it been me I would have sent out the statement from Fifty Cent that originally put out the challenge to Mayweather. It reads as follows:

"Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping......expletive etc etc..."

... will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE...?

EXCEPT?

How about, "will you ACCEPT my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE?" Click Here For Full Blog

Her Love For The Sweet Science
 
For world champion boxer Sindy Amador (12-1, 1 KO), what started as a way to get in shape and learn a few self-defense tricks, turned into a life long passion for the sweet science that has helped her become one of the most feared female light flyweights in the world.

Showtime Exposed: Deontay Wilder
 
By William Trillo

If you are buried on the under-undercard and are an undefeated and highly touted # 1 contender for the WBC Heavyweight Title and are fighting a guy who was preparing to fight a four rounder when he took the call on six days notice, then you had better destroy the palooka. Allowing the pug to go four rounds and then quit on his stool from exhaustion is unacceptable. Nothing less than a devastating KO will do.

Ice Bucket Blues
 
By William Trillo
Well it was inevitable, as fate would have it I was pegged with the so called Ice Bucket Challenge. Now, it's not that I am against coming together for a worthwhile cause and donating accordingly. And although I have never personally known anyone with ALS, I do have a friend from my past who has to deal with the effects of ALS daily. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

It just seems to me that for the most part the vision has been lost. Yes, I know there are many of you who genuinely support research for the disease but I am willing to bet most of you are just in it to dump a few gallons of cold water on the designated schlub.

  Kell Brook Captures IBF Welterweight Crown  
By Carlos Cordoba
Photos: Jimmie Martin

England’s Kell Brook (33-0, 22 KO's) captured the IBF Welterweight title by way of majority decision against Shawn Porter (24-1-1, 15 KO's). Brook’s victory came in the main event of the Showtime Championship Boxing series at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, CA. The night’s action was hosted by Golden Boy Promotions.

Shawn Porter, 26, worked behind his stick from the inception of the bout. Often letting loose with two consecutive jabs and then lounging at his counterpart with wild but meaningful blows. Kelly Brook answered by holding when the action got too close. Shawn Porter also did his share of the holding. The latter made for an unfortunate ugly fight where neither fighter looked good. Consequently, Brook suffered a cut above his left eye in round number two as a result of an accidental head bunt. Porter suffered the same fate on his right eye lid in round number six.

  Brook Dethrones Porter With Majority Decision  
Kell Brook (now 33-0, 22 KO's) won the IBF Welterweight Title from previous holder Shawn Porter with a 12 round Majority Decision. Brook simply outboxed Porter, landing jabs and right hands and landing at a much higher connect percentage. Porter showed he only knows one thing and that's the let his hands go wildly, even if it includes smothering himself, which is all he did. Porter would lunge in with wild left and right hooks, and into a clinch where he'd still be punching, most hitting in the back and behind the head of Brook. Brook deserved the victory, but there were lots of clinching and smothered punches that it would appear the judges may have had a hard time scoring some of the rounds. Final scores were 114-114 and 117-111, 116-1112 both for Brook. Porter takes his first defeat as 24-1-1 with 15 KO's.

Bika In Candidate For "Worst Fight Of The Year"
 
Anthony Dirrell (now 27-0-1, 22 KO's) won the WBC Super Middleweight Title over previous holder Sakio Bika in a rematch that had to be one of the ugliest fights in boxing history. Their first fight was ugly and ended in a draw. This one started right where they left off, with both men tangled on the canvas in just the very opening round. Referee Jack Reiss had his hands full the entire night, handing out warnings, a point deduction, and lots of strong comments towards both, even stating, "You guys look like shit doing this", and he couldn't have been more right. Bika would be deducted a point for low blow, which was actually on the belt-line, in round 8. In round 9, Dirrell would slip to the canvas as Bika hit him while he was down. This fight included clinching, tackles, take-downs, holding, rabbit punching, hitting on the break, smothering, headlocks and booing. It will be hard to imagine another fight topping this one as worst fight of the year. Final scores were 114-113, 116-111 and 117-110 for Dirrell. Bika drops to 32-6-3 with 21 KO's. Thank god that fight is over.
                                                                                                                         
  Figueroa Stops Estrada In 9  
Omar Figueroa (now 24-0-1, 18 KO's) retained the WBC Lightweight Title with a 9th round stoppage over tough Daniel Estrada. Estrada started well, landing some flush combinations to the head of Figueroa, but was eventually worn down by Figueroa's pressure style. An accidental headbutt at the end of round 8 threatened to halt the fight when a nasty cut over Figueroa's right eye began pouring blood. Figueroa wanted to fight on and in round 9 he would land a picture-perfect right hand counter that sent Estrada backwards onto the canvas. Estrada would rise, but could not stop the onslaught of Figueroa as the referee jumped in and waived the fight off at 1:00. Estrada drops to 32-3-1 with 24 KO's.

As Defined by Urbandictionary.com: Feast or Famine
To have a highly polarized, inconsistent flow of a particular resource or commodity.

  Jason Quigley Looks To Make
Stellar Professional Career
 
By Barbara Pinnella
One of the newest and brightest acquisitions for Sheer Sports Management is Ireland’s Jason Quigley. The 23-year-old Quigley has made just one appearance as a professional, but he made a statement, beating opponent Howard Reece back in mid-July of this year. It took Jason just 1:22 to get the TKO and his first pro victory. But Quigley had been boxing quite a bit longer than one might guess.

“I began when I was about seven, with my father,” he said. “We’d work on the punching bag at home. I used to see him training and I used to play the music for him. But then I started getting into the boxing, so he started me with the pads. Then he took me to a local gym when I was about nine or 10, and ever since that day I’ve just been a very busy amateur boxer. Well, we start at the age of 11, so I actually started then.” Click Here For Full Report

Bizier vs. Heerden Could Move To Québec City
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL - The IBO welterweight championship which is supposed to oppose Kevin Bizier, from Québec City, to the South African Chris Heerden, October first in Santa Monica, California, could move in November in Québec City.

The reason? According the Bizier’s promoter, Yvon Michel, the boss of the GYM Group, no TV network seems available to televise that bout October first. Michel believes that this minor world championship could be presented and televised at the Québec Colisée in Québec City in November. Trained by Freddie Roach, Heerden (21-1-0) won his last seven bouts, including three IBO 147 pound championships. Bizier (22-1-0) is ranked the number seven contender by the IBF.

                                                                                                                         
  Gunn Jr. Captures WBU Title

The Hackensack, NJ native, who previously scored all first round knockouts, landed crisp shots to both the body and head of Lockhart. Gunn Jr. decked his foe in the fourth but Lockhart, who’s battled more than 10 unbeaten opponents, finished the bout on his feet.

& Parker Both Walk Away With Knockouts
 
The main event featured a brutal ten-round heavyweight battle between Vyacheslav "Czar" Glazkov (18-0-1, 11 KOs*) from Lugansk, Ukraine against Derric "El León" Rossy (29-9, 14 KOs) of Medford, NY. The first round started slow with both fighters trying to feel each other out. Both guys ended the second trading very good shots, keeping the fight close. Rossy took the third round with ease. The next four rounds were close, with both fighters trading big shots. Rossy looked tired at the start of the eighth but continued to hang in there with Glazkov.

  Garcia Stops Salka In 2 To Cap
"Night Of The Mismatches"
 
Danny Garcia (now 29-0, 17 KO's) stopped overmatched Rod Salka in round 2 following 3 knockdowns. The fight was a mismatch to begin with, everyone knew this was a sham to begin with, and now that it's over it appears even more disgraceful than before. Following a right to the head in round 2, Salka staggered back and fell to the canvas. Another right would but Salka down again. The 3rd knockdown would come from a left hook to the jaw that sent him down and out, with the towel flying in late from his corner. Final time was 2:31. Salka drops to 19-4 with 3 KO's. Garcia's post fight comment of, "I'm all about fighting the best fighters", was a real smack in the face after tonight's shameful main event.
                                                                                                                         
  Peterson Stops Punching Bag Santana In 10  
Lamont Peterson (now 33-2-1, 17 KO's) retained the IBF Junior Welterweight Title with a 10th round stoppage over mismatched Edgar Santana. There really isn't much to say about this fight. Peterson showed up at the gym, hit the heavybag for a bit, worked up a sweat, and the referee stopped it after he saw enough. Santana did not win a single round, threw little to nothing back and was just there to provide a target for Peterson to land on. Final time was 2:48 of round 10 Santana drops to 29-5 with 20 KO's.
                                                                                                                         
  Jacobs Stops Fletcher in 5  
Daniel Jacobs (now28-1, 25 KO's) won the vacant WBA World Middleweight Title with a 5th round stoppage over Jarrod Fletcher. This fight wasn't really an even match going in and proved so when Jacobs came right out in round one, blistering Fletcher with multiple shots and dropping him in the opening round. Fletcher was tough though, however he was partly able to survive because Jacobs kept punching himself out as he was badly looking for a knockout. Jacobs would tire in a few rounds after, allowing Fletcher to gain some steam, but any time Jacobs got a second wind, it was a mismatch and he'd land every punch thrown. In round 5, a series of punches from Jacobs staggered and dropped Fletcher a second time. The fight was called off without giving him a chance to get up, despite it not being that bad. Final time was 2:58. Fletcher drops to 18-2 with 10 KO's. Gennady Golovkin currently holds the WBA Super World Middleweight Title.
                                                                                                                         
  Nelson Survives Grajeda To Keep Championship Hopes Alive; Escalera Upsets Nemesapati  
Earlier tonight at the Churchill County Fairgrounds in Fallon, NV, just outside of Reno, top-rated junior middleweight contender Willie Nelson showed tremendous heart, surviving two separate scares from heavy-handed Mexican Luis Grajeda, to win a 10-round unanimous decision.

The WBC #5-rated Nelson used his size, reach and superior boxing ability to control the early action, but was rocked in the third round by a looping overhand right from Grajeda. Nelson was able to survive the round though and was back in command by the fifth, working behind a long, hard jab.

California Commissioner Says

Amid reports that Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31 knockouts) was added to the fight card in Carson California next week there was also speculation that his opponent was set to be journeyman Mike Sheppard. "That was never the case", said California Commissioner Andy Foster. " I rejected that bout on Monday as soon as it was presented to me."

Kathy Duva: This is our 19th show Fight Night event. We have been enjoying a tremendous run. When we started, NBC thought we needed to work with other promoters. It has given us the freedom to create fights that would have never happened otherwise. J Russell Peltz and Jolene Mizzone's matchmaking has been a huge part of our success along with BAM Promotions. This event has the most promoters of any of our previous events. For this event we have German Titov of Titov Promotions, Pushka Promotions, Sal Musumeci of Final Forum Promotions and Duco Events.

  Wilkins Santiago Living a Dream in California  
By Barbara Pinnella
Wilkins “The Hispanic Hurricane” Santiago is living his dream right now. He had been through the worst of times, and was more than ready to start realizing the flip side of that. Now he is. Up until this past weekend, Santiago has had 10 professional fights, all of which were on the other side of the country. His record was 10-0-1, certainly nothing to sneeze at. But in order to advance, it was necessary to make a move.

Well, do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and in the present tense?
Or that everybody's on the stage, and it seems like you're the only person sitting in the audience?

Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day. - Ian Anderson


You could argue that no one on the planet is thrilled with the outcome of the Brandon Rios vs. Diego Chaves bout, but you would be wrong. You could say that no fighter worth his salt would be happy about the way Vic Drakulich completely botched the main event in Las Vegas on Saturday night, but again you would be greatly mistaken.

The Bright Spot In Predictable Night Of Boxing

By reading my headline, you might think that I thought Blake Caparello actually had a chance. Not at all. As far as I can tell, only two people thought Blake Caparello could win that fight. The first is Blake Caparello. And he should think he could win. Why take a fight you think you are going to lose, unless you need the money. The second person was Lou DiBella, who came up to press row before the fight and announced that his fighter was going to surprise us.

Yvon Michel: "If There Is A Fight Between Pascal
And Stevenson It Will Be Dec. 6th In Montreal"
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL - The promoter of the GYM Group, Yvon Michel, said Saturday that if a fight between the Montrealers Jean Pascal and Adonis Stevenson is organized, it will be presented at the Bell Centre in Montréal December 6th. Michel confirmed that him and his partner, Jean Bédard, the promoter of InterBox, has a hold for that specific date at Bell Centre. Greg Leon, the Pascal’s manager, said Showtime is certainly interested to televise this WBC light heavyweight championship of the world, even if the two fighters involved are Canadians.

  Jack Reiss Interview - Part Three:
"Boxing is a Metaphor of Life"
 
By Barbara Pinnella
This is the third and final part of the interview with referee and judge Jack Reiss, and there was still no shortage of topics. This time he discussed the number of belts that are up for grabs, the dangers of both concussions and rehydrating, cuts, and a variety of other issues.

Everyone who watches boxing is aware of all of the belts a fighter has the ability to win. The sanctioning bodies are the WBC, WBO, WBA, and IBF, and sometimes other federations are found within those four. Certainly, to win a title is definitely a big deal, but are there too many sanctioning bodies and belts?

  Vic Drakulich Needs To Be Suspended, Fined,
Fired And Left Never To Referee Again!

Chaves Disqualified In Fight He Was Winning Against Rios Where Vic Took 3 Points Overall From Both
 
By Bret "The Threat" Newton

Brandon Rios (now 32-2-1, 22 KO's) won one of the most horrendously officiated fights in the history of boxing with a 9th round disqualification over Diego Chaves. The fight looked like a "fight of the year" candidate from the very first ring of the bell, but the always too-involved referee Vic Drakulich was there to prevent that from happening and took too much charge of the fight.

We've seen Drakulich do this fight after fight, and it's a mystery why he's still brought in to officiate. He did a horrible job with Floyd Mayweather vs. Jose Luis Castillo back in 2002

 
where Larry Merchant was yelling how he was "too involved" and should "just let them fight". Then we've seen Drakulich earlier this year with Amir Khan vs. Luis Collazo. Khan was holding the entire fight and given about 2 warning per round, but never a point was deducted. Then when Collazo fouls for the first time an immediate point was taken. It seems Drakulich has his favorites or just clearly isn't fit to be a professional referee and tonight clearly showcases that.
