Saunders-Isufi for WBO interim title now

Billy Joe Saunders will fight WBO #1 Shefat Isufi for the WBO interim super middleweight world title on May 18 at The Lamex Stadium, home of Stevenage Football Club.

After notifying the governing body of his intention to leave the division, Zurdo later retracted his statement, although he will fight for the first time at light heavyweight on April 12 in Los Angeles.

“This is just part of being in a fight. The cut was not such a big problem. Sometimes blood makes me very hungry”, said Pulev. “I was very well prepared. I was ready for anything. At this moment I feel I can do anything inside the ring. I showed very good boxing skills. I also showed that I have good punching power and a good strategy.”

His cut will take some time to heal, but the win should keep the big Bulgarian at #1 in the IBF rankings.

Marrufo upsets previously unbeaten Shaw

By Lucas “Lukie” Ketelle

In a shocker, super lightweight Jose Marrufo (13-8-2, 1 KO) of Phoenix, Arizona upset previously unbeaten local San Francisco-based prospect Willie Shaw (9-1, 6 KOs) in an eight-round main event from the San Mateo Events Center in San Mateo, California.

The bout was close with a lot of swings rounds. Shaw landed the harder and cleaner shots, but Marrufo kept up a high punch output from start to finish which seemed to edge him the fight. In the second round, a punch or a head butt caused massive swelling that nearly shut Marrufo’s eye, and stopped the fight. B. St Boxing’s Fred Silva did a terrific job keeping Marrufo in the fight as Marrufo’s eye seemed to be basically shut.

Marrufo threw six to eight punch combinations in close while Shaw looked for two punches at a time with more force behind his shots. The judges scored the bout 76-76, 78-74 and 77-75 for Marrufo. Continue reading “Marrufo upsets previously unbeaten Shaw”

IBF #1 heavyweight Pulev cut, KOs Dinu in seven

By Miquel Maravilla at ringside

The heavyweights were in action as IBF #1 contender Kubrat Pulev (27-1, 14 KOs) of Bulgaria scored a dramatic seventh round KO over WBA #14 Bogdan Dinu (18-2, 14 KOs) of Romania on Saturday night in the ESPN main event at The Hangar in Costa Mesa, California.
Pulevkodinu
It was a slow start for the big guys but Pulev backed up Dinu with a one-two in the final seconds of the opening round. Working behind the jab in round two, Pulev pushed forward and controlled the round. Pulev began to throw and land the overhand right in round three as he continued to back up Dinu. The Romanian let his hands go in round four and he landed a solid right hand cutting Pulev badly over the left eye.

The blood flowed from Pulev’s left eye in the fifth as Dinu kept his distance boxing. It appeared that the cut was contained at the beginning of the sixth as Pulev came out more confident landing the right hand and backing Dinu but the cut was opened again late in the round. The Bulgarian came out firing in the seventh as he landed the one-two sending Dinu to the canvas. However, Pulev was deducted one point as he hit Dinu while down on a knee. After a delay, Dinu continued to fight and was battered down a second time from a Pulev right. Another Pulev right hand finished the job as Dinu was floored a third time and done. Referee Raul Caiz stopped the fight at 2:40 of the seventh round.

With the win, Pulev remains at the top of the IBF list to challenge WBA/IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. Continue reading “IBF #1 heavyweight Pulev cut, KOs Dinu in seven”

Wlodarczyk wins; Czerkaszyn TKOs Ouma (sort of)

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Two-time former cruiserweight world champion Krzysztof “Diabolo” Włodarczyk (57-4-1, 39 KOs) scored a workmanlike ten round unanimous decision over Alexandru Jur (18-3, 7 KOs) on Saturday night at the Olimpijczyków Sports & Entertainment Hall in Lomza, Poland. Scores were 96-94, 97-93 and 99-91.

In another bout, unbeaten super middleweight Fyodor Czerkaszyn (12-0, 7 KOs) won by second-round TKO over 40-year-old former world champion Kassim Ouma (29-13-1, 18 KOs).
