Boxing robot overcomes two knockdowns to systematically destroy mere Japanese human

Anyone who stayed awake through the encounter between boxing’s most avoided robot, Guillermo Rigondeaux, and mere human, Hisashi Amagasa, would have been delighted to see Rigondeaux get knocked down twice and visibly hurt in round 7.

The start of the fight was typical Rigondeaux, an incredible display of balance, poise and posturing that would be heralded by the Royal Ballet School, but had everyone else nodding off more then a room full of junkies. There’s only so much “sweet science” I could marvel at before my mind wondered and started thinking about why the Japanese decided to count up to 3 minutes instead of down, and why so many in the crowd were wearing respiratory face masks.

Undefeated Dahou (now 13-0, 12 KOs) in fact needed only 76 seconds in Bordj Bou Arreridj to snuff out the challenge of Valenzuela (drops to 33-25-2, 21 KOs) who had shown so much promise in the opening seconds. Continue reading

Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) landed 46 percent of his power punches compared to Edwards’ 19 percent. Edwards (27-4-1, 14 KOs) only managed to land one jab through the entire 12 rounds. Continue reading

Jo Jo Dan defeats Kevin Bizier

Jo Jo Dan won another razor close split-decision over hometown favorite Kevin Bizier in a welterweight rematch of their 2013 bout, scored 115-112 Dan, 114-113 Bizier, 114-113 Dan.

The early rounds were extremely close with back-and-forth action that could have gone either way. Bizier had his best round in the seventh, landing 38 punches to Dan’s 12 and flooring the Romanian for the first time since 2011. But the Quebec City native may have punched himself out, as Dan rallied and was the more active fighter from that point on. Dan landed 113 to just 78 for Bizier from the eighth through the 12th rounds. Continue reading
