Stevenson decisions Fonfara; Lemieux destroys Guerrero

(Photo Credit: SHOWTIME/Stephanie Trapp) WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (24-1, 20 KO’s) was badly exposed tonight by Andrzej Fonfara (25-3, 15 KO’s) in winning a very, very unimpressive 12 round unanimous decision at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

The 36-year-old Stevenson proved that he can dish it out, but he sure couldn’t take it from Fonfara. Stevenson was on the deck in the 9th round after getting hit with a right to the head. The thing is Fonfara isn’t a noted puncher, yet he still have Stevenson down on the canvas. Stevenson came back in the 10th and 11th rounds and was able to hurt Fonfara with body shots, but he wasn’t able to finish him off because he’d lost a lot of the zip on his shots. Stevenson punched himself out after the first 5 rounds, and had to depend on body punching to control the second half of the fight. Continue reading

Petrov Shows Adams How It’s Done

The finals for Friday Night Fights got their schedule for Boxcino finals got turned around. It should have had the lightweight finals first, instead of the middleweights. That way middleweight finalist Brandon Adam could have learned what his game plan should have been against the taller Willie Monroe, Jr.

It’s one thing to think you have a clear mental picture of what should be done, but it’s even better to see it done before your own eyes. Petrov could have been a visual aid, provided in graphic detail of how it’s done, meaning Lesson 101 “How to beat a taller man”.

The shorter Petrov got his jab going, mainly to Carcamo’s body. He used good head movement, side to side, up and down, coupled with movement at the waist. He quickly escalated the action by throwing combinations, beating to the punch Carcamo’s efforts to counter. Petrov wisely moved to his left, away from the southpaw Carcamo’s power left hand. He continually used inside angles by stepping around Carcarmo, requiring Carcamo to reset. For Carcamo, it was like being able to load the gun, but unable to pull the trigger, because the target kept moving. Continue reading

Marquez Sizzles and Pops in Win over Alvarado

Forty year old Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez’ (JMM) combinations were sharp and fast. His punches hissed through the air and then crackled when they reached their target. To Mike “Mile High” Alvarado, they must have sounded like the ear popping you hear and feel with a change of altitude.

Early on both men seemed overly cautious, as though they were determined not to provide counter punch opportunities. JMM was first to explore things. He poked and prodded a bit, and when there was no retaliation, he cranked things up a bit. Mike remained in the cautious stage. The problem with that strategy was he was losing rounds, because JMM is not only a great counter puncher, he’s also pretty damn good at leading too. As soon as JMM realized Mike wasn’t going to return his shots, he naturally picked up the pace. Mike kept his gloves up tight in defensive mode, but that wasn’t enough. Mike found out the hard way that there’s too much area to cover when JMM is throwing. Continue reading
