Random Weekend Thoughts

Photos: Jimmy Ortiz

Gennady Golovkin should now be considered the best Pound4Pound fighter on the planet. The one thing I am always impressed with is the look on his foes face, this time Danny Geale, after they get their first taste of GGG's punch. Whatever confidence they may have is erased and they immediately know they are in big trouble. The fact that Golovkin delivered his knockout shot after eating a pretty good fistful of leather milliseconds prior to the fight ending blow speaks volumes. Be it Cotto, Soliman or Godzilla, Golovkin's next foe is destined to fall.

  Carlson Retains WBC Latino Bantamweight
Title In Hard-Fought Match With Torres
By Barbara Pinnella
We went back to Ontario, CA and the Doubletree Hotel for another Thompson Boxing Promotions event, Locked ‘N Loaded. Unfortunately Efrain Esquivias, who was slated to fight in the main event against Chris Martin, had to pull out of the fight when he developed a high fever just a couple of days earlier. The crowd was probably smaller because of that, but the fans that did come were loud and supportive.

The fight that was to be the co-main event between Carlos Carlson (13-0, 10 KOs) and Jose Cen Torres (13-4, 1 KO) moved up into that main event spot. Carlson was defending his WBC Latino bantamweight title, and the bout was scheduled for eight rounds. These two men were quite evenly matched, and gave us a good contest.

  Golovkin Hammers Geale Inside 3 Rounds  
Gennady Golovkin (now 30-0, 27 KO's) retained the WBA Super World Middleweight Title with a 3rd round knockout over tough Daniel Geale. Golovkin was simply too big and too strong for Geale. Golovkin was calm and relaxed while Geale was constantly moving, wary of getting hit. Geale would suffer a cut over the right eye in the first round. In round 2, a right hand just behind the ear sent Geale down for the first time. Geale was game and tried his best to land shots, and he even connected flush with a few, but they all had no affect on Golovkin, who kept stalking his prey. In round 3, Geale would land a right on Golovkin who pulled back, taking away from the punch a bit, then fired a right of his own to the jaw that sent Geale down again. Geale arose to wobbly legs and staggered to the corner. Geale shook his head "no" and the referee waived the fight off at 2:47. Geale drops to 30-3 with 16 KO's.

After the fight, Golovkin showed interest in unifying titles with Miguel Cotto, Peter Quillin and Sam Solimon.

  Jennings Outboxes Sluggish Perez,
But Wins Based On One Point Deduction
Bryan Jennings (now 19-0, 10 KO's) won a split decision over previously unbeaten Mike Perez that would have been ruled a draw had it not been for a final round point deduction. From the start, it was clear Perez was the better fight. Perez was slicker, landed more meaningful shots and took control early. However, Jennings would prove to be the better athlete, as he kept up his punch output, movement and had the stamina that Perez did not. Perez started to tire after the 4th and begin to hold, push, lean on and simply do very little work. Jennings to advantage of that and appeared to take control of the remainder of the fight, though there was a lot of clinching where neither landed anything clean. In the 12th and final round, Perez landed a clearly intentional punch to the face of Jennings after the referee called break and was pushing the two apart. The ref decided to take an immediate point from Perez which ultimately became the deciding factor in the fight as it would have been ruled a draw.

Final scores were 114-113 for Perez, then 115-112 and 114-113 both for Jennings. Perez drops to 20-1-1 with 12 KO's.

Yvon Michel Clarifies The Conflict With Pascal
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL - Yvon Michel, the promoter of the GYM Group, clarified the situation about the conflict with the former WBC light heavyweight champion of the world, the Montréaler Jean Pascal. Thursday morning at his office in Montréal, Michel said: “Two months ago, Pascal received from the GYM Group and the InterBox Group an offer of one million dollars to fight Tavoris Cloud September 27th at Bell Centre, plus 70% of the gate’s revenues over the amount of 300,000$. He said yes. Jean Bédard (the president of InterBox) and me told him that with this generous offer, he got to cover himself the expenses of his training camp. He said yes. Few days ago, he told us he wanted 50,000$ more to cover his training camp’s expenses. We told him: no way. From that point, he told us he could not work anymore with us, and he would not fight Cloud September 27th. He said: "I will become free agent."

  Zou Shiming Tested, But Stays Unbeaten  
By Nat Gottlieb - HBO.com
It seems fitting that Zou Shiming has fought all five of his fights in a casino. After all, everybody knows the house always wins.

Shiming, the two-time Olympic gold medal winner from China, is as close as you can get to a "sure thing" at this point in his career. That's because his promoter, Top Rank, so far hasn't gambled much with its Asian-market golden boy. Although Shiming's opponents have gradually gotten better, none so far were expected to present much of a risk to him. That included Saturday's opponent, Luis De La Rosa (23-4-1, 13 KOs), a Colombian fighter so obscure that BoxRec doesn't even list his age, height, or reach. Click Here For Full Report Via HBO.com

To Fight & Is Put On Heart Transplant List

America was introduced to Kennedy Cunningham when her father first fought on NBC back in December of 2012 when he faced Tomasz Adamek in that epic battle, we learned that she suffered from a severed heart condition called HLHS.

In April when Steve fought Amir Mansour on NBC Sports, the family had just received heart breaking news when they we told that Kennedy was not a candidate for heart transplant as they had hoped.

including a stroke, many blood infections and also required a trach and vent for several years when she was younger.
