Boxing results from all major fights
Detroit born Lanardo Tyner made a victorious homecoming on Friday night, by dramatically stopping Angel Hernandez in the tenth round, to become crowned the new World Boxing Union (WBU) Welterweight World Champion at the Naser Beydoun’s Darkside Productions promoted RUMBLE ON THE RIVER event, which took place at the Masonic Temple in Detroit.
Tacoma, WA (January 11th, 2014) – On ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights, Zahir Raheem (35-3, 21 KOs) continued his dominance fighting under the Halquist Productions’ banner, easily taking care of business against Star Boxing’s Bayan Jargal (17-5-3, 11 KOs), winning unanimously on the judge’s scorecards and becoming the new WBO NABO junior welterweight champion.
A sold out crowd was on hand in the 1500 seat Emerald Queen Casino showroom to witness the nationally televised Battle at the Boat 94 broadcasted live on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights.
In Raheem’s fight with Jargal, Raheem was nearly untouchable throughout the 10 round bout as he controlled the tempo of the fight with a steady jab and a solid left hook to the body. Usually a counter puncher, Raheem wasn’t able to take advantage of that aspect of his game as Jargal pressed the fight, but didn’t throw many punches. While Raheem took the first six rounds, Jargal rebounded a bit in the next two rounds as he continued to press the fight and catch Raheem with a few solid hooks giving him some momentum in a fight that he was way behind in.

The night started out at the Target Center from chilly Minneapolis with a rematch from a spirited first fight featuring Milwaukee prospect Adrian Martinez fighting Duluth native Trevor Marmon.

Something unusual occurred in the season premier of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights. It occurred in the main event at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN. It was almost musical. The end came with a thud. Watch the replay, and see if you can keep time with the two punches and bells that ended round two of the fight. First, watch undefeated Rances Barthelemy;s land a hard right to the head of 130 pound champ Argenis Mendez.
Then he ends things with a left hook land as the bell clangs a second time. The fight is over. Oops! Referee Pete Podgorski was out of position and failed to separate the fighters at the end of the round. Can you say appeal? The winner of course didn’t know what announcer Bernardo Osuna was talking about when Osuna asked in the post-fight interview about the infractions? Naturally, Rances was excited with his big win and capturing of the IBF super featherweight world title. Continue reading

Gutsy Stuey Hall joins Froch, Quigg and Burns as British world champions with thrilling year-end classic Vs. Malinga
You could argue Great Britain saved the best for last in terms of terrific action fights staged in 2013. Last night in Leeds, 33-year-old Darlington man Stuey Hall battled his way to the IBF bantamweight title in an incredibly exciting and at times brutal encounter with South African southpaw Vusi Malinga.
Hall, an unlikely world title challenger, fought through the pain and hindrance of a badly busted up left eye to out-point 34-year-old Malinga in a fight that could be argued as the best to have taken place in the UK this year. After decking his man in the 3rd, Hall had to dig deep to see it through to the end. The two warriors went toe-to-toe and inflicted as much hurt as they could on each other. The heart and courage shown by both was truly remarkable. Continue reading
