Crawford Handily Defeats Postol In Light Welter Unification Bout

By Richard Eberline July 25th, 2016 All Boxing Results

There were late July fireworks in Las Vegas last night, with light welterweight Terence Crawford outboxing divisional rival Viktor Postol in front of seven thousand fans at the fabled MGM Grand in a world title unification contest.

WBC titlist Postol wasted no time in going after WBO champ Crawford from the first bell, pressuring the shorter man and enjoying some success.

Crawford was content to study Postol's strategy in the first couple of rounds until the switch-hitting Nebraska man picked up his rival's timing and began dismantling "The Iceman".

Postol towered over Crawford but the lanky Ukrainian's advantages of height and reach were turned against him by his very quick and shifty adversary.

By the fourth round, it was clear that Crawford had the measure of Postol, zipping in single shots and combinations while retaining perfect balance as Postol was made to look clumsy and awkward during countless exchanges.

The fifth frame was disastrous for Postol as he was dropped twice. The first knockdown looked to be due to a tangle of legs but the second came after a wide-open Postol was tagged with a hard counter shot and reeled into the ropes.

From that point on it was all Crawford as Postol started looking for one big shot in order to turn the fight around, a shot that never came. More...

Heavyweight Allen Vows To Take Whyte Into Deep Waters

By Matchroom Boxing July 23rd, 2016 All Press Releases

David Allen has warned Dillian Whyte he needs to be ready for 12 hard rounds when they clash for the vacant WBC International Heavyweight title at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on July 30, live on Sky Sports.

Allen took the clash with Whyte at three weeks’ notice, but the Doncaster man is not concerned about a lack of fitness – saying that he’s the naturally fitter man and it’s the Brixton banger that needs to make sure he’s grafted in the gym in order to stay with the pace Allen will set.

“Dillian can have all the time in the world to prepare but it doesn’t matter,” said Allen. “I come from a track and field and football background – I am a fit man. No Heavyweight in the country, bar Joshua, can match me for fitness. More...

At the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on Saturday night, a thrilling headliner saw Gorton’s Ryan Doyle win the vacant BBBofC English Featherweight Title by outpointing Ian Bailey of Slough over 10 hard-fought rounds (99-90; 98-91; 97-93)

Bailey was on the canvas in the opening round but kept going to provide a challenging ten rounds for ‘Ruthless’ Doyle. Another notable shot came from Doyle in the third – when a shot caught the top of Bailey’s head and his legs stiffened briefly. Both men did not go unscathed – Doyle’s left eye area was marking up mid-way through the contest and eventually started to bleed in the fifth. Bailey’s swollen, bruised right eye area began to trickle blood shortly after, in round six.

Also on the Steve Wood – VIP Boxing Promotions bill, Manchester’s Joe Murray scored a points’ win (60-55) over tough Ibrar Riyaz of Reading to notch up a second win since his 14 month ‘break’ from boxing last year.

And, debutant John Telford of Flixton, Manchester, made a notable start to his pro career by outpointing Lewis van Poetsch of Lydney over four rounds (40-36) More...


World Weekend Roundup: Wilder, Rigondeaux Retain Titles

By Wellington Amadulu July 19th, 2016 All Boxing Results

There were a few world title bouts across the globe this past weekend with the biggest contest occurring Saturday in America, as WBC heavyweight king Deontay Wilder retained his belt against challenger Chris Arreola at Legacy Arena in Birmingham.

Wilder held every advantage against California veteran Arreola and leveraged each one of those edges during the fight, as the champion was simply too tall, too quick, too strong and too heavy-fisted for the challenger.

The Alabama man toyed with his adversary, allowing Arreola to gain proximity simply to make the challenger easier to hit. Wilder took his time in the ring, slowly whittling down Arreola with jabs, hooks and the occasional thunderous right hand.

Arreola did snap back the head of Wilder on occasion with jabs and the odd power shot, an indication that the champion still has a long way to go on defense but Wilder has yet to tangle with an opponent who can make him pay for that shortcoming.

By the fourth frame, Wilder had Arreola reeling into the ropes and then on the floor but the former two-time world challenger showed a lot of courage to survive until the bell. More...
