If front of a sold-out, standing room crowd at the historic House of Blues on Lansdowne Street in the Fenway neighborhood of Boston, MA, local favorite Mark “The Italian Bazooka” DeLuca improved his record to an impressive 18-0 picking up his 12th knockout stopping the game Travis Scott (19-3, 5 KOs) of Baton Rogue, LA in the eighth round of a scheduled ten. Sporting a four-inch height advantage, Scott attempted to use his reach and leverage against the compact former Marine Iraq War Veteran, but DeLuca’s subtle head movement and patient counterpunching continued to chip away at opponent, slowly closing the gap and creating openings when the opportunities appeared.

Mikey Garcia says Linares should beat Crolla again

WBC lightweight world champion Mikey Garcia (36-0, 30 KOs) will join the SHOWTIME announce team as a guest analyst for the rematch between WBA lightweight world champion Jorge Linares and Anthony Crolla on Saturday at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. The WBC has mandated that the winner of Linares-Crolla II must face Garcia, who knocked out defending champion Dejan Zlaticanin on Jan. 28 in his second fight back following a 30-month layoff.

“I’m excited to participate as guest analyst for this rematch,” said Garcia. “These are two of the most competitive boxers in my division. Jorge Linares won the first fight, but Crolla can create a different outcome. Linares has good hand speed, timing, reflexes and has power in both hands. Crolla has a good right hand and has shown some solid body work in his recent fights. While Crolla is getting better with each fight, Linares is likely still the better boxer, and should edge him out in a close fight.”

Court reaffirms that Canelo must pay All Star Boxing $8.5 million

Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court Judge Migna Sanchez-Llorens in Miami today upheld an $8.5 million jury award to All Star Boxing from boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez. The Alvarez camp moved to have the award reduced or thrown out, or, alternatively to get a new trial. However, the Court ruled that the $8.5 million awarded to All Star Boxing was supported by the evidence and will remain in force. A motion for a new trial was also denied.

A second lawsuit filed by Canelo and Golden Boy against All Star Boxing seeking a dismissal of the case by claiming promoter Felix Zabala (All Star Boxing) perpetrated a fraud upon the court, proceeded on a sham pleading, and changed his testimony to avoid summary adjudication was also denied. The Court ruled Zabala’s testimony was truthful, he did not file sham pleadings and that the evidence doesn’t support Alvarez’s argument that documents were manufactured or fabricated by Zabala.

All Star Boxing sued Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions for breach of contract, tortious interference, and unjust enrichment. When the case was tried last year, a jury returned a verdict in favor of Alvarez and Golden Boy Promotions against the breach of contract and tortious interference claims. However, the jury returned a verdict in favor of All Star Boxing and against Alvarez on the unjust enrichment claim and awarded All Star Boxing $8,500,000.

The 12th Round: Boxing At It’s Best

WBC President – Jose Sulaiman´s son

The Boxing Writers Association of America held its annual awards dinner and it was so nice to see the boxing community together, so humbling to hear the speeches which brought tears to many and for once to see promoters, managers, boxers, TV executives, trainers and anyone involved in the sport interact with the major players of boxing media from the USA. Congratulations to BWAA for a successful event which was clearly prepared with passion and dedication to honor the best of 2016.

What a wonderful week it was for boxing and magical night at Madison Square Garden with 2 highly competitive and dramatic fights which went down to the line and resulted in very close decisions and of course controversy. There are so many things that boxing can do to improve but simply zero intentions from a few to agree to change and modernize.

GGG, Jacobs discuss surprising night at Madison Square Garden

By Matt Richardson

The KO streak may have ended early Sunday morning at Madison Square Garden in New York City but the much longer unbeaten run for unified WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin continued unabated following a tight unanimous decision victory against Danny Jacobs.

Photo: Sumio Yamada

Golovkin scored a fourth round knockdown but otherwise had a lot of difficulty with Jacobs lateral movement and only won the fight by a single point on one scorecard. Ultimately, Golovkin secured the win via scores of 115-112 (twice) and 114-113.

“No, I don’t have a lot of problem,” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KO’s) said at the post-fight press conference. “Speed is good. Distance is good. Daniel, you know, he’s very good moving today. Very clean fight. I respect him. Just, I knock him down, Daniel, I respect don’t lose control. Everything in control for 12 rounds. It’s very good. I needed 12 rounds, too.

In a tactical boxing match, Hayward, California’s Aaron Coley (14-1-1, 6 KOs) defeated Dashon Johnson (22-21-3, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, out-working the more experienced journeyman over ten rounds in the middleweight main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat 110.

Coley, a southpaw, employed a cautious approach early, working behind his right jab and feinting with his left, seemingly trying to bait his opponent into opening himself up for a counter. Coley slowly started to pick up his output in the second round, finding his comfort level and letting his hand go a bit more often. Coley took clear control of the range and pace of the fight in the third and maintained it through the fourth, working at a distance with a steady stream of jabs, keeping Johnson on the outside and on the end of his punches, unable to get in close enough to do any real damage.

Analysis: How Golovkin beat Jacobs

Unified WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin jumped out to an early lead over Daniel Jacobs and Jacobs was never able to make up the deficit.

Photo: Sumio Yamada

After four rounds (and a fourth round knockdown), Golovkin was ahead 39-36 on all three cards. After eight rounds, GGG remained ahead 77-74, 77-74 and 78-73. After Golovkin won the ninth round on all three cards, Jacobs needed at least needed a knockdown to draw even. So even though he swept the last three rounds on two cards, and took two of the three on the third card, it was too little, too late for “The Miracle Man.” Golovkin edged it 114-113 on the cards of Max DeLuca and Don Trella, while Steve Weisfeld had GGG ahead 115-112.

Srisaket defeats Chocolatito for WBC superfly belt in classic

By Matt Richardson at ringside

WBC Super Flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (46-1, 38 KO’s) was widely considered to be the best fighter in boxing when he entered the ring on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. When he left the ring later in the night, however, his title, status and unblemished professional record were all gone. Gonzalez lost a shocking 12-round majority decision against Thailand’s Srisaket Sor Rungvisai on scores of 114-112 (twice) and 113-113. The scorecards were roundly booed but the scores masked what had turned into a surprisingly excellent fight.

Gonzalez was shockingly knocked down in the first round, rocked throughout and badly cut over his right eye. But he continued to plow forward, employing a mix of boxing and brawling that had the MSG crowd roaring but often left Gonzalez bruised and bleeding. Rungvisai (42-4-1, 38 KO’s) was right there with him, often giving as good as he got but as the fight proceeded into the middle rounds and the knockdown got further and further into the rearview mirror, he appeared to slow enough for Gonzalez to take advantage.

Ryan Martin TKO8 Bryant Cruz (lightweight)
Andy Lee W8 KeAndrae Leatherwood (middleweight)
Matt McKinney W4 Jay Carrigan-McFarlane (heavyweight)
Serhii Bohachuk TKO3 Yasmani Pedroso (welterweight)

Former WBC super flyweight champion and Carlos “Principe” Cuadras, (36-1-1, 27 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over former world title challenger David “Severo” Carmona, (20-4-5, 8 KOs). Former Roman Gonzalez opponent Cuadras bounced back from a September 2016 defeat at the hands of “Chocolatito” to win 97-93 (twice) and 96-94. Despite the lopsided nature of the fight, both men took punishment: Carmona (20-4-5, 8 KO’s) was cut on the left side of the head from a Cuadras punch but Cuadras was cut over the left eye in the seventh from a similar shot. It was Cuadras, however, who was in control throughout. He dictated the pace of the action, stunned his opponent occasionally and built up enough of an early lead to hold of Carmona down the stretch.

Lightweight prospect Ryan Martin outworked, outpunched and just plain beat up Bryant “Pee Wee” Cruz in the first fight of the HBO-televised pay-per-view. Eventually, the wear and tear added up and referee Harvey Dock stopped the fight in the eighth round (45 seconds) with Cruz still standing but clearly defeated. There were no knockdowns. (more…)

But as I waited for the scores, I knew I won the fight. These were honorable judges. I want Wilder next. I am 44-years-old. I want my shot. They should give me my shot and try to get me out of the way.”

Travis Kauffman: “I got robbed. It’s plain and simple. It was a good fight, but I thought I won by three rounds. He landed a couple of shots, but I clearly outworked him. I thought I landed more and did enough to get the win.”
