At the Kings Hall, Stoke-on-Trent, England, last night, Carl Greaves Promotions (in association with Impact Boxing) hosted a night of seven contests from local boxers. The headline event saw the home-boxer, Kerry Evans of Wrexham, stopped by Rhys Saunders of Cardiff in round one of an 8-round Lightweight Contest for the Classic Challenge Belt. Saunders looked keen and dangerous from the off and soon had Evans on the canvas. After a second time, although the popular local man made the count – he was stopped by Referee Kevin Parker seconds later under too much pressure from Saunders who subjected him to a barrage of shots while pinned on the ropes.

Stoke man, Josh McLaren, secured a draw with Alfreton’s William Warburton, despite nasty cuts to the right brow which almost brought the fight to an early finish.

The remaining five contests all went to points, including confident performances from debutants Josh Groombridge and Luke Jones. More...


World Weekend Roundup: Jack vs. Bute Ends In Draw

By Wellington Amadulu May 2nd, 2016 All Boxing Results

The top fight card over the weekend took place at the Armory in America's capital Washington DC, as WBC super middle champ Badou Jack tangled with former IBF titlist Lucian Bute.

Bute started the contest on overdrive, presenting a constantly moving target and throwing lots of punches. The challenger took the early rounds by outworking Jack but the champion began to spear Bute with many hard rights to the body during the middle rounds.

That apporach had the desired effect of slowing down the Montreal based Bute but the southpaw began to find a home for an accurate lead left hand to the head that Jack had no answers to.

It was a difficult fight to score and in the end, one judge favored Jack's harder punching with a surprisingly wide margin of 117-111 while the remaining cards were even at 114-114, allowing Jack to keep his title with a majority draw.

Bute, 32-3-1 (25), put on his best performance in years and could see a rematch with the champion later this year. Jack moves to 20-1-2 (12), retaining his crown for the second time but has yet to win a title defense in convincing fashion.

On the undercard, IBF super middle champion James DeGale was in a hard scrap with challenger Rogelio Medina.

Medina applied relentless pressure but had difficulty with the awkward, constantly switching stances of DeGale, who, characteristically, threw punches from odd angles.

DeGale had particular success with sneak uppercuts but got caught with a lot of straight punches and hooks from his rugged Mexican rival, a result of the champion staying closer to Medina and slugging it out during the first half of the contest. More...

Jack, DeGale Super Middle Double Header In Washington

By Nick Chamberlain April 29th, 2016 All Boxing Previews

This weekend the WBC super-middle weight belt and the IBF super middle weight title are on the line for Badou Jack and James DeGale, against Lucien Bute and Rogelio Medina, respectively, at the Armory in Washington DC on Saturday.

Interestingly enough, Badou Jack (20-1-1) beat Medina (36-6-0) at the end of 2013 and DeGale beat Bute in his most recent fight.

Bute (32-3-0) once was a force in the division, if a little protected in his adopted hometown of Montreal, Canada. When the real tests came though, the elite of the division at the time, he was found wanting.

He was undefeated when Carl Froch absolutely destroyed him, knocking him out in 2012, and has never really looked the same since, losing a points decision to Jean Pascal and being out boxed by DeGale.

However, Bute did put up enough of a fight against DeGale to show there’s fight left in him, the question is how much?

Badou Jack does everything well, but nothing spectacularly, in my opinion anyway. He is a good well rounded boxer, with a 55% KO ratio who was lucky to be on the winning end of a split decision in his most recent fight against George Groves.

With Bute being a southpaw, he could prove difficult for Jack. Bute has a sneaky body shot with his left hand, which does damage and he has good lateral movement. It all depends on how much Bute has got left in the tank.

I doubt Jack has Froch’s power and he is not a better boxer than DeGale, so if Bute shows up in the right mind-set, Jack will most definitely have a fight on his hands. More...


Frampton Drops IBF Super Bantam Belt For Santa Cruz Clash

By Boxing Press April 29th, 2016 All Press Releases

Belfast’s undefeated Carl ‘The Jackal’ Frampton has relinquished his IBF super bantamweight belt ahead of his WBA featherweight super title challenge of California’s undefeated champion Leo Santa Cruz, on July 30 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, USA.

In order for Frampton to pursue two-weight World title glory against Santa Cruz this summer, the Northern Irishman must vacate his coveted IBF super bantamweight crown due to mandatory obligations.

The Santa Cruz fight at featherweight made the most financial sense for the hugely popular Frampton but the twenty-nine year old undefeated Belfast native wanted to make clear his gratitude to the IBF ahead of his World featherweight title challenge. More...
