In a vicious two-way slugfest, Guillermo Jones regained his WBA cruiserweight crown tonight by knocking out reigning champion Denis Lebedev in the 11th round of their contest at Crocus City Hall, Moscow.
Having lost his WBA belt due to inactivity, the 41 year old Guillermo Jones, of Panama, came into Moscow determined to get it back from 33 year old Lebedev, of Chekhov, Russia, and the bout was laced with action starting in the first round.
The 6'4 Jones towered over the 5'11 Lebedev, using his heavy jab to keep the smaller man at bay but all too often Jones decided to slug it out, giving up his height.
On many occasions, Jones reached for Lebedev, over-extending himself and going off balance when he missed. Lebedev took advantage of such opportunities and planted heavy shots point blank on Jones but the Panamanian showed an iron chin in taking the punches well.
The jab of Guillermo Jones produced damage to Lebedev's eye early on and the taller man focused successfully on worsening the laceration for the entire bout. More...

Irish middleweight contender, Andy Lee (30W-2L, 21KO’s) returned to United States yesterday evening to make a statement of intent at the jam packed BB King Blues Club, NYC in the latest edition of DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing Series.
Lee’s opponent in the headlining bout of an entertaining eight fight card was the tough and durable southpaw Daryl Cunningham (28W-4L, 11KO’s) from Detroit. More...

In the high point for British boxing thus far in 2013, bantamweight Jamie McDonnell beat the odds and powerful Mexican puncher Julio Ceja tonight at Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster, England to capture the IBF title in thrilling fashion.
McDonnell adds world glory to a trophy cabinet that already contains European, British and Commonwealth belts while winning his thirteen consecutive bout.
The lanky Doncaster man towered over his opponent tonight and ultimately it was McDonnell's use of reach advantage, proper distance and constant movement which allowed the 27 year old to best the younger, stronger, harder punching Ceja.
After a quiet first round, Ceja started to go to work in the second, corralling the local man and landing the left hook to the body. McDonnell was shelling up on defense, standing still and allowing Ceja to operate.
This continued through the fourth round with McDonnell landing little of consequence while getting punished with left hooks. More and more it appeared that the former European champ would go the way of countless others on Ceja's resume.
By the fifth there was a change, as McDonnell took heart when he realized he could take Ceja's best shots and began to stick and move, finding a home for a nice jab and lead right hand that was catching Ceja and disrupting the Nacho Beristain coached Mexican. More...

In a stunning turn of events, Ricky Burns kept his WBO lightweight title tonight when challenger Jose Gonzalez quit on his stool before the tenth round, citing a possible broken left wrist in a fight in which he had been winning at Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland.
Aside from the previous two frames, the previously unbeaten Gonzalez had been in control of the contest, absolutely battering Burns on several occasions in the seventh round; it was remarkable that the Scot never went down after getting caught flush by such a powerful puncher.
Burns, 36-2 (10), even managed to hurt Gonzalez, 22-1 (17), a couple of times in the seventh but was lucky to finish the frame on his feet.
Gonzalez was oddly inactive in the eighth and ninth, likely as a result of the injury, skipping away from Burns but taking punishment from the champion whenever they came to grips.
The Puerto Rican KO artist could also have lost confidence as he wasn't used to opponents managing to survive his bombardments and that, coupled with the injury, probably tells the story of his failure to continue.
By the midway point in the fight, Burns was looking like a soon to be ex-champion as Gonzalez was masterfully controlling the pace of the fight and the distance in which it was being waged completely to his advantage. More...

Last night, in Mannheim, Germany, Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko retained his four Heavyweight titles by scoring a sixth round TKO over Italian Francesco Pianeta of Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
Pianeta found himself on the canvas three times during the contest at the packed out SAP Arena.
Knockdown number one came in round four when the Champion landed a hefty right to the face of Pianeta, who stood up straight away and took the count.
A clubbing left sent him to the canvas again in the fifth. The third and final knockdown was a left, right, left to the head in round six.
Pianeta was on all fours and got up wearily as Referee Ernie Sharif administered the count then waved off the contest with the Italian looking dazed.
Klitschko – victorious once more! His impressive record now stands at 60 wins (51 by knockout) 3 losses (3 by KO).

It was skill against will, brain vs. brawn, strategy contending with game; the rapier meets the cutlass.
Floyd Mayweather Jr delivered a superb performance last night, taking away any advantage Robert Guerrero may have brought to the table at Mayweather's home away from home, the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, while maximizing the weapons from his own amazing arsenal.
The build up to this contest, for the WBC welterweight belt, took place over a great deal of time as Guerrero had been campaigning for the opportunity to face Mayweather for the last year and a half.
The forceful manner in which Guerrero had dealt with his previous welterweight appearances, Andre Berto and Selcuk Aydin, coupled with the now 36 year old Mayweather getting hit much more than usual when he faced Miguel Cotto last year, led some to consider Mayweather vulnerable.
Perhaps even Mayweather himself, as he returned his father, who's primary focus is defense, to the trainer's seat in his camp while Floyd made statements in the media in the days leading up to the fight that he had trained harder for this fight than any other....etc.
Additionally, Floyd had previously had a bit of trouble with a few southpaws in his career and well, perhaps lefty Guerrero was coming along with the right tools at the right time? More...

Heavyweight boxing's top man was in fantastic form earlier tonight at SAP Arena in Mannheim, with Wladimir Klitschko bashing up challenger Francesco Pianeta enroute to producing a stoppage at 2:52 of the sixth frame.
Putting the WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO titles on the line, Klitschko was facing his second consecutive undefeated opponent, Italian southpaw Pianeta, who had previously turned back 28 opponents, although none were anywhere close to world level.
That gulf of experience between the two combatants was clear from the first bell with Klitschko staking out the center of the ring and staying close to the challenger, using his left as a measuring stick.
Pianeta was largely unable to bridge the distance gap favored by Klitschko, launching the odd wild punch but mainly holding a high guard and looking for opportunities.
Klitschko imposed his will in the shape of his heavy right hand, winging it at Pianeta's head a few times every round. As the frames wore on, the success ratio of that punch increased.
Although the forays were disorganized, Pianeta came forward a few times with left hands and seemed to rattle the champion but Pianeta could never maintain any kind of momentum. More...

Danny Garcia walked out of Brooklyn's Barclays Center bloodied and humbled but still a world champion as the Philadelphia light welter got past former two-weight world titlist Zab Judah after a hard-fought bout.
Widely perceived as well past his best before the fight, southpaw Judah managed to turn back the clock for large parts of the contest, hurting Garcia in the tenth and eleventh rounds but was unable to better his work in the crucial 12th round.
For "Super Judah" this late round resurgence was remarkable as many had predicted the 35 year old ex-Unified welterweight world champion would have been disposed of by that point.
Judah's rally came after he was nailed in the eighth by Garcia, hitting the deck but drawing on the experience of 18 previous world title bouts, was able to regroup.
The New Yorker had been doing well prior to the knockdown, having started the process of breaking Garcia's control by the middle rounds.
The champion was starting to slow down after a busy effort on the early frames, hurting Judah, 42-8 (29), in the fourth with powerful right hands.
This after an uneventful initial round that saw the combatants study each other, taking notes on reactions and counter moves. More...

It wasn't pretty but WBC middleweight champ Sergio Martinez kept his title against England's Martin Murray last evening in front of over 40,000 people Club Atletico Velez Sarsfield in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The stadium was packed for the fighting return of Martinez for the first time since 2002 and the 38 year old switch-hitting southpaw had brought in the third English opponent he's faced since 2011, former British, Commonwealth and current WBA Interim champ Murray.
Early on, Martinez looked like the Sergio of old, using shifty movement, hands-down defense and punches from odd angles to keep Murray looking stiff and unsure of how to proceed.
But Martinez could keep up the charade of youth for long and soon Murray found himself closer to the target and began to warm to the task at hand.
Murray's hard-nosed approach, which included use of the head and forearm, was in sharp contrast to the elegant style of Martinez, but the older man was unable to hurt the challenger and keep him off.
Slowly, the control of Martinez began to slip as Murray started to throw combinations behind a high guard, landing right hands; Martinez still uses a reaction-based defense, no-hands defense but no longer has the quickness to avoid some of the lunging punches he attracts. More...

Former WBA/IBF light welter king Amir Khan burned a few more of his nine lives last night at Sheffield's Motorpoint Arena, managing to finish the fight on his feet after a knockdown and quite a few shaky moments against opponent Julio Diaz.
Working for the second time with Super Middle World Champ Andre Ward's trainer Virgil Hunter, Khan showed discipline and composure in the early rounds, working behind the jab while focusing also on preventing the defensive lapses that have dogged him in the past.
Displaying and edge in quickness, Khan was the busier, more accurate fighter in the first two rounds, managing distance well but by the third, California's Diaz had managed to get closer to Khan and began to find a home for his left hook.
The fourth frame was disastrous for Khan as ex-two time IBF lightweight champion Diaz rammed home a three shot combination bookended by two good left hooks that put the Englishman on the floor.
Khan beat the count and held on for dear life as Diaz tried to finish the job but could not do so amid Khan's constant grabbing for the rest of the round.
The local hero got on his toes for the next two frames, basically running and jabbing his way through and avoiding any confrontation with his aggressive rival. More...

Veteran Brazilian danger-man Anderson Clayton is the new World Boxing Federation Super Welterweight Champion after dethroning local hero Sebastien “Coco” Madani by second round technical knockout in Rumilly, France on Saturday night, April 27.
The visitor from Sao Paolo stormed out at the first bell and put pressure on Madani, and clearly surprised the champion with his aggression. One of the first punches that connected on the Frenchman quickly made his right eye swell, and by the end of the round it was almost closed. More...
