Usti nad Labem – The Camp David Memorial of Milan Konecny was maybe headlined by Radek Linka (9-4) and Robert Rosenberg (6-1), who battled for the International Czech cruiserweight title, but it also showcased two talented Czech women from the newly formed SES Boxing Czech Republic team Fabiana Bytyqi (2-0) and Lucia Sedláčková (1-0) Continue reading
Friday night, April 10th at The sold out Memorial Hall in Melrose, Ma, Danny O’Connor (25-2 9KOs) continued his climb to an inevitable championship fight, with a devastating 1st round KO of tough veteran Michael Clark. O’Connor the man credited with reviving the boxing scene in Boston ended the fight just 1.15 into the 1st round, when he caught Clark with a perfectly timed right hook that that put him down for the count. As soon as the punch landed and Clark hit the floor, it was apparent to everyone in attendance that Clark would be unable to get up. Continue reading
Bethlehem, PA (April 13, 2015)
Brandon Adams and John Thompson won semifinal bouts in the Boxcino 2015 Jr. Middleweight Tournament while Andrey Fedosov and Donovan Dennis scored impressive stoppage victories in the Heavyweight tournament, as all four punched their tickets to the finals in bouts that took place this past Friday at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem.

Martin J Ward TKO5 Maxi Hughes – Martin J Ward, 11-0-2 (6KO’s), left no room for doubt second time around as he convincingly halted Maxi Hughes, 13-2-2 (2KO’s), on his stool at the closure of the 5th round of their super-featherweight rematch.
It’s been a long wait for Tony Sims’s charge; he felt he had done enough in the first meeting in December – in which he was controversially down twice – to earn more than the majority draw awarded. Continue reading
by Joe Latti – Brick City Boxing – The 2015 Boxcino Tournament continues to impress, as this edition took Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA by storm on Friday, April 10th. The show was promoted by Arthur Pelullo’s Banner Promotions and broadcast live on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights on ESPN2.

Lineal 140lb champion, Danny “Swift” Garcia should probably be renamed “Gift” Garcia this morning, after some favourable scorecards last night in New York led to the Philly native remaining undefeated after his 143lb catch weight fight against Lamont Peterson.
Its not an exaggeration to say that Peterson, who has been stripped of his IBF title because of the loss, will be feeling a little hard done by today as the majority decision that went against him is being viewed by many as unjust. One has to say the scores of 115-113 (twice) and a 114-114 draw are not the fairest reflection of a fight that this writer thought Peterson deserved by at least a couple of rounds. Continue reading
Slovenian crowd-favorite Jan Zaveck became a two-time, two-weight World Champion on Saturday night, April 11, when he took the World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Welterweight title from defending titlist Sasha Yengoyan from Belgium. Continue reading
In an exciting fight, WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee (34-2-1, 24 KOs) got up off the canvas twice to rally in the second half of the fight to salvage a 12 round majority draw against former WBO 160 pound champion Peter Quillin (31-0-1, 22 KOs). Lee knocked Quillin down in the 7th round with a right hook to the head. That knockdown negated one of Quillin’s earlier knockdowns. Continue reading
Josh Warrington claimed the vacant WBC international featherweight title this evening with a 12 round unanimous decision victory over the teak tough Filipino Dennis Tubieron.
The local hero – now mandatory challenger to Gary Russell Jnr’s WBC featherweight world championship – was greeted in the customary raucous fashion held on reserve for him at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, which resembled more of summer rock festival than a championship boxing show.
Such an atmosphere can’t help but transfer to target of its affection and Warrington looked ready to explode as he soaked up every ounce of it pacing around his corner, in which he was oddly accompanied by ex-footballer and actor Vinnie Jones. Continue reading
Josh Warrington claimed the WBC International Featherweight title against durable Filipino Dennis Tubieron with a wide points win in front of a huge hometown crowd at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
Warrington pummelled the game visitor for vast swathes of the fight, but he could not put Tubieron away as the 25 year old provided the stiffest resistance possible and also troubled Warrington at times with hard shots of his own.
The Leeds star was well on top though in front of his adoring and vocal support, and while both men heard the final bell, Warrington was awarded the win 119-109, 119-110 and 119-109 on the judges’ scorecards. Continue reading
