  Rios Massacres Alvarado In 3rd Fight;
Alvarado Calls The Fight Off After 3
 
Photo: Chris Farina - Top Rank

Brandon Rios (now 33-2-1, 23 KO's) stopped Mike Alvarado after just 3 rounds in their trilogy. From the very start, even from the day this fight was set up, this was a mismatch. Alvarado and Rios were both coming off losses, but Alvarado's losses were brutal ones and it appeared he would not have enough in the tank for another war like their first two fights. Round 1 proved that as Rios landed at will, bloodied the face of Alvarado and looked on the verge of a quick win. Much of the same in round 2 occurred and it looked like Alvarado wouldn't make it another round. In round 3, Alvarado would fall from an accumulation of punishment, complaining to his corner about his eye. Alvarado would make it out of the round, but looked like he told his corner he could not continue. His cornerman appeared to ignore him and wanted him to fight on. When the ringside doctor asked Alvarado how many fingers he was holding up, Alvarado replied with "Four" when he only showed him two. The fight was immediately called off. Alvarado, who drops to 34-4 with 23 KO's., said he was concerned for his health because he plans to be back and fight on.
                                                                                                                         

  Ramirez Gets By Vlasov In Good Fight By Both Men  
Photo: Chris Farina - Top Rank

Gilberto Ramirez (now 31-0, 24 KO's) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Maxim Vlasov in a fight that saw both fighters with big moments. From the opening round this fight was very evenly matched. Both throwing and landing numerous shots. However, the pace turned around the 3rd when the body shots from Ramirez started to slow Vlasov down. Ramirez would take control of the next few rounds, but would eat a number of rights and lefts to the face that caused a big red welt under his left eye. Vlasov appeared to close the gap a bit down the stretch and even had a nice last round, landing more head shots as Ramirez backed to the ropes. Final scores were 96-94 and 97-93 twice. Vlasov (now 30-2, 15 KO's) has nothing to be ashamed about in this loss as he gave a good display of himself and this fight was literally one round away from being a draw.

Tests showed that the level of his dehydration was so severe, so serious, that several fibers surrounding his muscles were destroyed. He should not have been fighting in that condition.

For many years, Showtime sports photographer Tom Casino has artfully captured the seminal moments of athletic competitions and focused too on the needs and well being of others. Now he needs our help.

Back surgery last summer, then a near-lethal pulmonary embolism and a debilitating stomach virus called c.diff, have depleted Tom’s assets, the misery compounded by additional expenses through another six months of physical rehabilitation. Under a best-case scenario, these medical setbacks will cost Tommy one year of work and more than $100,000 in health-care costs. Without our help, food stamps, Medicaid and financial ruin loom his new reality.

The Heavyweight Division In 2015?
 
If you talk to any casual boxing fan about the current state of the heavyweight division, many of them will hark back to the "glory days" of Ali, Frazier, Liston and Foreman, or even the resurgence of the division with Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield, Bowe and the like. However, though the Klitschko's could be just about tagged on to the end of the renaissance, they weren't in the thick of it. Click Here For More

Stiverne Released From Hospital
 
By Daniel Cloutier
LAS VEGAS —— One day after he lost his WBC heavyweight championship of the world in the ring at the MGM Grand Arena, Montrealer Bermane had been admitted in a Las Vegas hospital. Stiverne (24-2-1), who lost by unanimous decision against Deontay Wilder (33-0-0), a 6’7’’
boxer from Alabama, took medical tests earlier today.

Wilder connected Stiverne with 220 punches, two times more than thrown by Stiverne. Camille Estephan, the president-promoter-manager of The Eye Of The Tiger Management Group, the Stiverne’s manager, believes his fighter is suffering of dehydration and possibly a concession.

Stiverne was released earlier today. More to come.

By Daniel Cloudier
LAS VEGAS - What will be the future for the two heavyweights who were involved in the main event of this Showtime boxing show organized by Don King Productions and Golden Boy Promotions Saturday evening at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas?

Deontay Wilder (33-0-0), a boxer of 6’7’’ from Alabama, who dethroned the Montrealer Bermane Stiverne (24-2-1) as WBC champion of the world, is now in position to fight the Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko (63-3-0), the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion of the world. Klitschko mentioned recently to Europeans boxing writers that he wants absolutely to get the four major titles of the heavyweight division before ended his career. He will be 39 years in March. If he wants to have the four titles in his possession, he has no choice, he got to challenge Wilder now. Klitschko, who won his last 19 world championship bouts, is actually ranked among the 10 best fighters pound for pound in the world.

  Wilder Wins WBC Heavyweight Title With
Unanimous Decision Over Lackluster Stiverne
 
Deontay Wilder (now 33-0, 32 KO's) won the WBC Heavyweight Title from Bermaine Stiverne, though not by a KO, but a surprising unanimous decision. It wasn't the decision that was surprising, but the fact it went the distance after all these men promised leading up to the fight.

From the opening round Wilder would use his height, reach and jab the rounds away. An occasional right hand through Stiverne's guard would appear, followed by a few flurries of hooks. Stiverne never really got off much of anything. He moved his head all over when nothing was happening, but once the jab and punches started coming his way, he was a solid as a tree trunk, making it that much easier for Wilder to land at free will and walk away with the win.

This fight proved a few things. It proved that Wilder could go a full 12 rounds, though a 12 rounds dictated by hois own pace with not much being offered in return from his opponent. This fight also proved that despite what Stiverne's post fight comment lead you to believe, that is EXACTLY how Stiverne fights. That's how he lost to Demetrice King, and also how he won against Chris Arreola. He just doesn't not move his head and is very slow on his feet. This fight also showed the sad state of the heavyweight division, but at least the better fighter walks away with the title tonight.

Final scores were 118-109, 119-108 and 120-107. Stiverne drops to 24-2-1 with 21 KO's.

                                                                                                                         
  Santa Cruz Stops Ruiz In 8th In Back & Forth Fight  
Leo Santa Cruz (now 29-0-1, 17 KO's) retained the WBC Super Bantamweight Title with an 8th round stoppage over Jesus Ruiz. The fight was tougher than expected, as Ruiz was very game and gave Santa Cruz a lot to think about if he wants to step up against the bigger names. Ruiz would land a high number of punches throughout, showing a bloodied Santa Cruz that he needs to work on his defense game a bit. Santa Cruz would land a high output of his own, however, and finally broke Ruiz in the 8th, staggering him to the roped and unleashing a barrage of punches that saw referee Kenny Bayless jump in and waive the fight off, despite Ruiz still punching back. Final time was :29 of the 8th. Ruiz drops to 32-6-5 with 21 KO's.
                                                                                                                         
  Imam Stops Maldonado In 5th Round In Knockdownfest That Saw Both Men Down  
Amir Imam (now 16-0, 14 KO's) remained undefeated with an all out war against Fidel Maldonado Jr. that included 5 knockdowns within 5 rounds. From the opening round, it seemed Maldonado's pressuring strategy was going to succeed. Maldonado smothered Imam and was able to land numerous punches on the inside, pressuring him tot he ropes. Round 2 was also dictated by Maldonado up until the very last second when a short right hand out of nowhere had Maldonado down and out on his feet as the bell sounded.

In round 3, an early candidate for round of the year, Imam came out looking strong, but Maldonado would land a perfect left that sent Imam down for the first time in his career. Imam brushed it off, then cam back with another right to send Maldonado down a second time in the fight. Maldonado was on shaky legs and Imam went in for the finish, landing a combination against the ropes, sending Maldonado down a 2nd time in the round, 3rd total, at the end of the round.

Imam would remain in control in the 4th and through the 5th, landing another right hand that buckled Maldonado, followed by a left hook to the jaw that sent Maldonado backwards onto the canvas again. Although he barely beat the count, referee Robert Byrd waived this one off at 2:59 of the 5th.

Maldonado drops to 19-3-1NC with 16 KO's.

By Daniel Cloutier
LAS VEGAS - The Californian Oscar De La Hoya, the owner and president of the Golden Boy Promotions organization, is positive that his new acquisition, the young Montrealer middleweight David Lemieux, will become one of the most popular boxers on the planet.

“A boxer like David Lemieux if fitting perfectly with our organization, said De La Hoya in the MGM Grand press room Saturday around noon. David is not afraid to face the best men of his division. It’s exactly the kind of fighters we love to sign. I am positive that David will become one of the most popular boxers on the planet. He is intense, determinate, ambitious and he is one of the most dangerous puncher pound for pound in the world. And you can add to that he is the best looking man in boxing… since I quit boxing! When I was fighting, a lot of women were buying tickets to see me in action, and I am sure it will be the same thing with David.

LAS VEGAS —— The moment of the truth is approaching. The American boxer Deontay Wilder believes he will cause a huge commotion Saturday evening in the ring of the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas.

We will know in few hours if he is right or wrong.

Wilder, a very tall fighter (6’7’’) from Alabama, will try to dethrone the Montrealer Bermane Stiverne as WBC heavyweight champion of the world. Stiverne won this prestigious vacant title May 10th at the USC Galen Centre in Los Angeles, in beating the Californian Chris Arreola (35-4-0) by TKO in the sixth round. Stiverne became at that moment the successor of the Ukrenian Vitali Klitschko (45-2-0), who gave up the crown in January 2014 to start a political career in Ukraine.

LAS VEGAS - The heavyweights Bermane Stiverne and Deontay Wilder made a lot of acerbic and provoking comments to each one during the last weeks, but they were far away from each other. Thursday afternoon at the David Copperfield's room at the MGM Grand, where was held the final press conference of their fight, they were sitting at few inches on each one.

Alvarado (34-3, 23 KOs), and Rios (32-2-1, 22 KOs), who each own a victory in the series -- both of which were candidates for Fight of the Year in 2012 and 2013 -- discussed the upcoming Alvarado-Rios 3, which is scheduled for 12 rounds with the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) International welterweight championship on the line. Taking place Saturday, January 24, at the 1STBANK Center, located in the Denver suburb of Broomfield, CO, Alvarado-Rios 3 will be televised live on HBO, beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.
