Boxing results from all major fights
Tacoma, Washington (March 29th 2015) From the moment the opening bell sounded, fans packed into the sold out I-5 showroom in Tacoma knew they were in for a night to remember. With six incredible matchups on the card, Battle at the Boat 100 lived up to the hype. Mixing some razor thin decisions with brutal knockouts, Battle at the Boat lived up to it’s reputation as the premier boxing showcase on the west coast.
Headlining this historic night of fights was Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (17-1 11KO’s) taking on Maurice Louishomme (8-2-1 4KO’s) in a 10-round bout. Both men came to fight, as they immediately marched to the center of the ring and began exchanging blows. Back and forth they went, with each fighter scoring a knockdown in the 2nd. As the fight wore on, Gavronski began to find his groove, landing stiff jabs followed by huge right hands to the head. After wobbling his opponent to end the 5th, Gavronski ended things in the very next round, sending Louishomme to the canvas for the final time. The fight marks Gavronski’s third win in row, all coming at Battle at the Boat events. Continue reading

Kell Brook retained his IBF World welterweight title in blistering fashion tonight, demolishing brave Romanian challenger Jo Jo Dan inside 4 rounds.
Brook sent out a chilling message to the rest of the welterweight division by flooring Dan four times in front of a rapturous home support to finally consummate the championship he won superbly 7 months ago.
From the moment ‘All of the Lights’ erupted throughout the arena and the beloved champion rose from the bowels of his fortress, he looked up to the sky and you felt the weight of a tumultuous 6 months lift from his shoulders.
This was the Kell Brook from Carson City in August and Jo Jo Dan had absolutely no answer to him. Continue reading
Kell Brook sent out a chilling warning to his Welterweight rivals by dishing out a devastating four-round beating to mandatory challenger Jo Jo Dan in the first defence of his IBF World title at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on Saturday night (March 28)
Brook came to the ring to a rapturous reception and rose to the occasion like an elite World ruler. The Sheffield star eased into the opening round and Dan felt the first of many right hands in the second half of the first stanza.
A sign of things to follow came in the second round as Dan hit the canvas early and then again after making the count, both from right uppercuts. The Romanian-Canadian was wobbled once more with a minute to go but gritted his teeth to hear the bell. Continue reading

Frenchman Michel Mothmora is the new World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Middleweight Champion after winning the vacant title on Friday night, March 27, with a sixth round stoppage of Germany’s Baker Barakat in Loiret, France.
It was a high-paced affair from the start, as Barakat came out looking for a knockout from the first bell, and Mothmora had to be active to prevent the visitor from taking control of the fight. However, albeit the better boxer of the two, Mothmora often allowed Barakat to come into range to trade punches. Continue reading
Los Angeles, CA (March 18, 2015) Undefeated and world ranked welterweight Fredrick “General Okunka” Lawson dominated perennial contender Breidis Prescott over ten rounds last night at the Hialeah Park Race Track in Miami, Florida.

The victory for Lawson was telecast on ESPN, his second consecutive bout on the network. Continue reading
Ovill McKenzie retained his British and Commonwealth cruiserweight titles with a majority point’s decision over Matty Askin this evening at the York Hall, Bethnal Green.
‘The Upsetter’ defied the odds once more to come on strong from the 6th round to turn the tide on the challenger who had built up a substantial lead through the first 5 sessions – certainly in my opinion at least.
Askin started the better, controlling the 1st round with sharp movement to keep the stalking McKenzie off balance, popping a stiff left jab catching his static looking foe. Continue reading
