KAZAKH wrecking machine Zhanat Zhakiyanov continued his march towards a world title shot with a blistering one round blow out of Georgia’s previously unbeaten Gagi Edisherashvili in Minsk on Wednesday night.
Zhakiyanov, fighting under the stewardship of former two weight world champion Ricky Hatton for the fourth time, set about his younger foe from the first bell and soon had him pressed against the ropes.
A series of shots from both fists saw Edisherashvili covering up before a brutal body blow finished things.
The victory meant Zhakiyanov added the vacant WBC EPBC bantamweight title to his European crown and remains on track for fights against the elite of the division. Continue reading
Juan “El Gallo” Estrada successfully defended his WBO Flyweight and WBA Super World Flyweight Titles on Saturday night, September 6, in a resounding victory against Giovani Segura, “The Aztec Warrior”. The fight took place at the Arena Cuidad de Mexico, with an estimated 10,000 spectators in attendance. Fans and friends watched in breathless anticipation as Estrada (27-2-20KOs) dominated the ex-champion Giovani Segura (32-5-1, 28 KOs) during the entire fight. It was joyful for Estrada but heart-breaking for the Aztec Warrior as the 11th round brought an end to this grueling match, giving Estrada an impressive victory against a very formidable opponent and handing Segura the second loss in his entire career by way of TKO—bringing the Aztec Warrior’s three-win streak to an end, and securing El Gallo’s claim as the reigning best boxer in the lower weight division.

Ross Burkinshaw’s perseverance and dogged determination paid off last night (06/09/14) when the Sheffield battler beat Jason Cunningham at the Doncaster Dome to become Commonwealth bantamweight champion.
Adrien “Problem” Broner 29-1 (22KO), comfortable in his Cincinnati, OH backyard, took a while to soften up Emmanuel Taylor 18-3 (12KO). The Problem child pulled away in the last quarter, topping off things for his fans by dropping Taylor with a hard left uppercut in the last round at the U.S. Bank Arena. Broner got what he wanted, a big win over a tough opponent. In a way, Taylor got what he wanted too. He proved his critics wrong by putting on a better showing than they thought possible.
Taylor’s early aggression kept the fight close. He prevented Broner from using his jab. Broner was limited to his “check hooks”, most of which missed or were blocked. Broner and Taylor both landed good body shots, but Broner’s had more mustard on them. Showtime announcer Paulie Malignaggi remarked on the quality of the action, stressing both men were technically sound and demonstrating a lot of skill. The fouls and dirty tactics were held to a minimum, and referee Randy Jarvis held a relatively easy time of it. There were a few warnings here and there for use of the elbow and occasional holding.

Argentinean power-puncher Lucas Matthysse scored a quick knockout of previously undefeated Roberto Ortiz with a lethal liver shot at 2:45 of the second round.
In an anticlimactic ending to a bout that had the promise of a war, Matthysse (36-3, 34 KOs) landed a short left hook to the body that sent Ortiz to a knee to catch his breath. The Mexican spit out his mouthpiece and appeared to be working the count until the final split seconds. But referee Benji Esteves halted the contest at the count of 10 despite the fact that Ortiz was on his feet and proceeding to stand up straight.
CINCINNATI, Ohio (Sept. 6, 2014) – Adrien Broner and Emanuel Taylor put on a show for “The Problem’s” 8,115 hometown fans in attendance at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, brawling to a close, unanimous decision (115-12, 116-111 twice) for Broner that was arguably one of the best fights of the year.
The main event of the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING tripleheader was a tactical, inside fight from the beginning. Taylor (18-3, 12 KOs) was effective in the early rounds, coming out with an aggressive game plan that surprised the favored Broner and had him backing up against the ropes. The fight was even after six rounds, but as Taylor’s energy waned, Broner (29-1, 22 KOs) took control of the bout. Continue reading
It was an early birthday present for Andre Berto in the opening bout on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING, with the former welterweight world champion bouncing back from a lengthy layoff and shoulder surgery with a 10-round unanimous decision victory over Steve Upsher.
The bout was scored 99-91 by all three judges.
Berto, who turns 31 on Sunday, showed no lingering signs of discomfort following after nearly 14 months out of the ring after suffering a shoulder injury in July, 2013 against Jesus Soto Karass. Continue reading
San Diego, CA -September 6, 2014–Carl Frampton won the IBF Super Bantamweight title with a 12-round unanimous decision over defending champion Kiko Martinez in front of over 16,000 fans at an outdoor stadium at the Titanic Quarter in Frampton’s hometown of Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The championship fight was seen live and exclusively in the United States on AWE- A Wealth of Entertainment
Frampton was very consistent and scored a knockdown in round five with a terrific counter. Frampton’s work caused a cut around the left eye of Martinez. Frampton was cut in round nine from a left hook from Martinez. Continue reading
Adrien Broner (29-1, 22 KOs) scored a 12th round knockdown in the process of defeating Emmanuel Taylor (18-3, 12 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision in his hometown at the U.S Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Taylor was having a good round in the 12th until Broner connected with a left hand to the head that dropped Taylor on his backside on the canvas in the last 15 seconds of the round. Taylor got back to his feet and the fight ended several seconds later. It was a close affair with both guys taking turns landing big shots.
Like in his fight against Marcos Maidana, Broner spent a lot of time on the ropes covering up and trying to land counter shots. This enabled Taylor to tee off on him in many of the rounds. Broner’s defense was sound even when he was backed up against the ropes, but it still didn’t look good with him backed up like that. Continue reading
