Boxing results from all major fights
Former 2x middleweight world title challenger Matthew Macklin (33-6, 22ko) is convinced he has still has more to give at the top level, and took another small step toward getting his career back on track last night in Marbella, when he stopped German club fighter Chris Hermann (19-7-1, 10ko) inside a round on a show put on by the promotional arm of his MGM gymnasium, which is located in the Spanish resort.
‘I touched him (Hermann) with the uppercut to bring his hands up and that gave me the opening to the liver/floating rib area… when you land clean there with a bit of power, not too many guys get up from it,’ Macklin said following the body shot victory. Continue reading
On a hot summer August night, in a specially-constructed ring outside the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC) across from the D Las Vegas, Trevor “The Dream” Bryan remained unbeaten and passed the toughest test of his career with a crowd-pleasing, hard-fought 10-round unanimous decision over Derric Rossy in the main event of a ShoBox: The New Generation tripleheader live on SHOWTIME®.
Bryan (16-0, 11 KOs), of Albany, N.Y., dropped the vastly more experienced Rossy (30-10, 14 KOs), of Medford, N.Y., with a flurry of punches 30 seconds into the fight en route to winning one of the most exciting heavyweight fights of the year by the scores of 98-91 twice and 97-92. Round 3 of the slugfest could be a candidate for Round of the Year. Continue reading
FRESNO, CA (August 28, 2015) – Last night during the Fight Club OC card at the “The Hangar” in Costa Mesa, California, super-welterweight prospect, Marcos “The Madman” Hernandez (7-0, 2 KOs) remained undefeated, winning an 6-round unanimous decision against Luis Alfredo Lugo (14-23-1, 5 KOs).

Los Angeles, CA (August 28, 2015) Thursday night, top super featherweight prospect “BEKMAN” SOYLYBAEV stormed to his sixth professional victory taking a six round unanimous decision over JOSE LUIS “Tapitas” ARAIZA impressing the sold out crowd of boxing fans at The Hangar at the Orange County Fair and Events Center in Costa Mesa, California.

Flyweight Oscar “Chapito” Vasquez (9-1 2 KOs) earned his ninth victory by stopping San Diego’s Jose Toribio (6-2) Saturday night in Fallon, NV. Continue reading

In the “New Blood” main event, Carlos Carlson (19-1, 12 KOs) showed his mettle by battling through an early set back to retain his WBC Latino Bantamweight Title over the tough Pedro Melo (13-9-2, 4 KOs) in front of a sold out crowd at the Omega Products Outdoor Arena in Corona, Calif. on Friday night. Continue reading
In a surprising upset, the well-known heavyweight Manuel Charr (28-4, 16 KOs) was stopped in the 5th round by little known undefeated Mairis Briedis (17-0, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the Akhmat Arena, in Grozny, Russia. Charr was knocked out cold from a left-right combination from Briedis that deposited Charr face down on the canvas.
It was similar to the way Juan Manuel Marquez knocked Manny Pacquiao out three years ago in 2012. The only difference was Briedis split Charr’s guard with a right uppercut to the chin and followed it up with a parting left hook to the head that sent the 245 pound Charr face down on the canvas. Charr’s arms were to his sides when he hit the canvas and he didn’t even attempt to brace his fall because he was literally knocked unconscious. Referee Irakly Malazonia stopped the fight officially at 2:55 of the round. Continue reading
Australian cruiserweight and former WBA 175 lb champion Danny “The Green Machine” Green, returned to the ring after almost three years out tonight, comfortably outpointing Argentina’s Roberto Bolonti in a difficult to watch and frankly boring 10 rounder that does nothing to stoke any interest in a mooted rematch with distasteful Islamic convert and countryman, Anthony “The Man” Mundine – or “Choc” as he likes to be called.
There wasn’t much of anything to write home about in terms of early action, with neither man landing with any frequency, and the contest continued in forgettable fashion right until the final bell. Continue reading
Nutley, NJ (August 19, 2015) – This past Saturday night at the Playground in Atlantic City, Welterweight Keenan Smith (8-0, 3 KO’s) remained perfect by scoring a 2nd round stoppage over previously undefeated Lavelle Hadley in a bout scheduled for six-rounds. Continue reading
