World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Kovalev Krushes Pascal

By Wellington Amadulu February 2nd, 2016 All Boxing Results

IBF/WBO/WBA Light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev solidified his position as the top man in his division by battering bitter rival Jean Pascal in their rematch on Saturday night in the cavernous Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

The pair had tangled previously in March, 2015 with Kovalev halting Pascal in the eighth, a stoppage that some pundits in the media saw as premature after a thrilling give and take tussle.

Kovalev had set out to use this opportunity to prove that his 2015 victory over the Montreal man was no fluke and the Russian slugger succeeded in bettering his work.

Once the bell rang, Kovalev immediately set upon Pascal, raking the Canadian with powerful jabs that softened up the target in preparation to the combinations to the head and body that the champion was firing off during the middle rounds.

Gone were Pascal's lighting ripostes to Kovalev's head that made the first clash between these two light heavyweights such an exciting contest as the challenger had difficulty landing any offense of substance this time around.

Pascal's fortunes grew worse as the bout wore on as he was clattered about the ring in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds, prompting the local man's corner to ask the fight be stopped before the eighth round could commence.

Kovalev was ahead on all three scorecards by a margin of 62-70 at the time of the stoppage.

Perhaps Pascal, who falls to 30-4-1 (17), will never be the same fighter he was before the first Kovalev contest, a bout in which he absorbed many punishing blows in a valiant but losing cause. More...

Burton Faces Shinkwin For British Belt February 27 In Manchester

By Matchroom Boxing February 1st, 2016 All Boxing News

Hosea Burton will face Miles Shinkwin for the vacant British Light-Heavyweight title at the sold-out Manchester Arena on February 27, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Manchester man Burton’s patient wait for a title shot finally ends on the undercard of his Joe Gallagher gym-mate Scott Quigg’s World title unification blockbuster with Carl Frampton, and the unbeaten 27 year old believes he’ll claim the title in style.

“I have always wanted to land the British title and finally I have my chance,” said Burton. “The division is as good as ever at world level but domestically it is poor because the British title hasn’t been fought for. Hopefully by making the belt active again the division can be as exciting as it should be. Shinkwin is a good test but I'm very confident I will get him out of there in style on February 27. More...

The bout was originally scheduled to take place last November in Monaco before a hand injury suffered by Braehmer forced the fight’s postponement, but now fully fit, the reigning champion is relishing a return to Neubrandenburg, where he claimed the WBA title back in 2013.

“Neubrandenburg holds a very special place in my heart,” said Braehmer. “It was here that I beat Marcus Oliveria to become World Champion for a second time. So of course, I’m looking forward to returning to the Jahnsportforum and successfully defending my title against Oosthuizen.”’ More...
