By Matchroom Boxing June 18th, 2015 All Boxing News

Brian Vera has told Rocky Fielding he’s out of his depth when they clash at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Friday June 26, live on Sky Sports.

Vera Rubbishes Rocky Fielding Ahead Of Liverpool Showdown

Vera travels from the States to present the hometown favourite with his toughest test of his pro career to date, but Fielding declared last week that he would make a big statement and do what the likes of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, Serhiy Dzinziruk and Sergio Mora couldn’t do – and stop the 33 year old visitor.

Oliver Harrison Promotions hosted a night of boxing at Evoque Night Club, Preston, last night.

The headliner was a scheduled ten round Featherweight Contest between South African - Tshifhiwa Munyai and Reynaldo Cajina of Barcelona. Munyai won the contest by ninth round stoppage.

The event featured five undercard bouts, results as follows:

Tshifhiwa Munyai (South Africa) v Reynaldo Cajina (Barcelona via Nicaragua)
10 x 3 Featherweight Contest

Cajina was counted near the end of round one by Referee Mark Lyson, although from my position it looked like he’d stumbled over his feet.

Rounds five and six were decent rounds for the ‘Atomic Spider’ Munyai who pops out the jab from centre ring while Cajina skirts around the ropes. More...


World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Wilder, Pedraza, Walters, Lara

By Wellington Amadulu June 14th, 2015 All Boxing Results

There were a few good fight cards around the globe this weekend and we'll kick off this report in the American state of Alabama, where favorite son Deontay Wilder was in action.

Gracing the cavernous Barstow Arena in Birmingham, Wilder put his WBC heavyweight belt up for grabs for the first time as he faced off against little known challenger Eric Molina.

Molina had his moments, including landing a big left that shook Wilder in the third and later a right that snapped back the head of the champion but the challenger was unable to avoid nor take the big shots of "The Bronze Bomber".

Wilder was just too fast for Molina, 23-3 (17), who was floored in the fourth and twice in the fifth before getting decked once again in the ninth, prompting referee Jack Reiss to stop the fight at 1:03 of the round.

Now standing at 34-0 (33), Wilder gets closer to a unification showdown with world champion Wladimir Klitschko, although it would be advisable for the American to face better competition before taking such a big leap up and perhaps this showing against Molina will embolden his backers to allow him the freedom to do so.

On the undercard, the vacant IBF super feather title has a new owner as Jose Pedraza, 20-0 (12), handily outpointed Andrey Klimov, 19-2 (9), by scores of 120-108, 120-108 and 119-109.

Next up for Pedraza could be a massive domestic showdown with fellow Puerto Rican Rocky Martinez, who regained his old WBO super feather strap in April.

There was also a highly anticipated clash at lightweight between undefeated southpaw contenders Ivan Redkach and Dejan Zlaticanin, who tangled for the WBC's mandatory challenger position. More...


Who Will Prevail When Walters, Marriaga Clash Tonight?

By Richard Eberline June 13th, 2015 All Boxing Previews

There'll be big explosions in the ring tonight at New York's Madison Square Garden when Nicholas Walters and amateur nemesis Miguel Marriaga square off for the WBA "Super" featherweight title that Walters lost yesterday on the scales when he could not make the divisional limit of 126 pounds.

Could the blown weigh-in by Walters, 25-0 (21), be an indication of his concern in facing Marriaga? Would it be better to weight more and thus be stronger, giving himself a better change to defeat Marriaga, even if it means losing the title rather than to make weight and thus be weaker and possibly losing both the fight and the title?

This could be because Marriaga, 20-0 (18), defeated the Jamaican seven years ago on points in an Olympic qualifier event and has shown a lot of confidence leading up to tonight's contest. Are there lingering psychological effects for Walters to deal with?

Walters, from Montego Bay, rose from obscurity in 2012 by capturing the vacant WBA feather strap with a stoppage of Daulis Prescott but shot to true prominence in the sport by halting Nonito Donaire and Vic Darchinyan in 2014.

Marriaga has amassed a nice record on paper, operating mostly in his native Colombia with a few forays into Mexico, but against mostly low level or limited opposition.

Marriaga's sole appearance in America occurred last October when he produced a six round KO of Christopher Martin, who is the Cartegena man's most accomplished opponent to date.

Walters has successfully gone up against far, far better opponents and would normally be a big favorite to send Marriaga packing. More...

Randall “KO King” Bailey Returns To The Ring June 20

By Boxing Press June 13th, 2015 All Boxing News

Three-time, two division world champion Randall "KO King" Bailey (44-8, 37 KOs) returns to the ring June 20 after a long absence to fight veteran Gundrick "Sho-Gun" King (18-14, 11 KOs) in the 10-round main event at Riverdale Center of Arts in Riverdale, Georgia.

Contrary to some erroneous reports and misconceptions, the 40-year-old Bailey never retired. Unfortunately, he hasn't fought in a year and a half, only four times in nearly five years, due to his well-earned reputation as, pound-for-pound, one of the hardest one-punch boxers in the world. More...

Lara Put WBA 154 Belt At Risk Tonight In Chicago

By Richard Eberline June 12th, 2015 All Boxing Previews

Light middleweight Erislandy Lara puts his WBA crown on the line tonight at the UIC Pavillion in Chicago as the native Cuban faces off against two-time former world title challenger Delvin Rodriguez.

Crafty southpaw Lara, 20-2-2 (12), acquired the belt in his most recent appearance by widely outpointing Ishe Smith in December of last year and will be a big favorite against Connecticut resident Rodriguez, 28-7-4 (16).

The challenger has had mixed fortunes since losing a bid for the vacant IBF welter title to Issac Hltashwayo in 2009, going 4-5 (2) over that span, including a loss against WBA super middle champ Austin Trout in 2012.

Lara finally got to fight for the full WBA belt after losing to Canelo Alvarez and defeating Trout for the Interim version and in his first appearance as a world champion, he should be a very difficult proposition for Rodriguez.

Although he doesn't have the sheer skill of Lara, Rodriguez, 28-7-4 (16), can be a very dangerous opponent if he enjoys early success as it will lead to confidence and momentum.

Rodriguez is taller than Lara but there's no way he's going to outpoint the slick Cuban left from the outside so will have to take chances to get inside and force the champion to trade.

If Lara does stick to his strengths of the jab, movement and timely counters, this might not be a difficult bout for him but if he has overlooked Rodriguez and hasn't trained properly, he could have stamina issues that leads to a shoulder to shoulder slugfest. More...


Hull Calling: Campbell vs Coyle City Showdown August 1

By Matchroom Boxing June 12th, 2015 All Boxing News

Luke Campbell MBE and Tommy Coyle will clash in an official eliminator for the WBC Lightweight title at Craven Park in Hull on August 1, live on Sky Sports.

The Hull pair have been on a collision course over the last year and came face-to-face at a public press conference at the City Hall in Hull, England last night with sparks set to fly after a war of words began between them in the media.

“The stage is set for the one of the biggest sporting events the city of Hull will ever see,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “Two world-ranked lightweight contenders will battle it out in an official eliminator for the WBC World title – it's East versus West, a city divided with everything on the line.

Team N’Dam Objects About Local Officials For Lemieux Fight

By Boxing Press June 12th, 2015 All Press Releases
