Kickboxer Verhoeven Gives Inside Perspective Of Team Fury

By Boxing Press September 16th, 2015 All Press Releases

By Rico Verhoeven:

I've been to England four or five times now and really love it. Coming from Holland, though, I always have to get used to the differences with the roads. You guys drive on the other side of the road and two days ago I almost got run over! I was looking at the wrong side, the wrong way, walked out and nearly got taken out. It was pretty scary. I nearly had a damn heart attack!

Despite these dangers, I always enjoy going to England and hooking up with the Furys. They feel like family to me. It's very natural. It doesn't matter how long I've been away, every time I come here it feels like home. More...

Last night, at Evoque Nightclub, Preston, England, Oliver Harrison Promotions hosted a fightnight which headlined the 12 round contest between South Africans - Tshifhiwa Munyai and Oscar Chauke. Originally scheduled as the IBF Inter-Continental Featherweight Title bout, the contest was demoted after Munyai gained too much weight overnight. Munyai won the contest by tenth round knockout after Chauke failed to meet the count.

The night also featured seven undercard bouts, results as follows:

Tshifhiwa Munyai (South Africa) v Oscar Chauke (South Africa)
12 x 3 Featherweight Contest

A steady start to the fight – with Munyai touching down in round one, though it was a no knockdown. There was a flurry of shots from both boxers at the end of the first.

Not a thrilling fight – but the action picked up in the latter rounds. That said, Chauke did find himself on the canvas in the closing half minute of round three.

Munyai’s punches strayed a little low throughout the contest and he was told by Referee Steve Grey to ‘keep the punches up’ in round 8.

Munyai lands a shot in the tenth which sees Chauke on the canvas. He sat for the count administered by Referee Grey but was counted out and helped on to his stool to recover. More...

World Weekend Roundup: Mayweather Wins Grand Finale

By Wellington Amadulu September 14th, 2015 All Boxing Results

There were a brace of good fights this weekend but the big story was Floyd Mayweather Jr's self proclaimed final appearance, which took place against opponent Andre Berto on Saturday at MGM Grand in America's fight capitol of Las Vegas.

Statistically, Mayweather was far more accurate than Berto and as usual, "Money" didn't get hit a lot on his way to producing a 120-108, 118-110, 117-111 points verdict, but Mayweather actually fought the very active Berto, who made Floyd work very hard to produce the win.

Berto is probably the fastest-handed fighter that Mayweather has fought since his 2006 clash with Zab Judah and the Florida resident had some success, snapping back Mayweather's head at times and pounding his midsection with riveting combinations.

But round after round, Mayweather routinely landed crunching counters and sizzling lead rights and left hooks that disrupted the constant pressure that Berto brought to the fight.

The last couple of rounds were particularly entertaining with Berto doing everything he could to try and pierce Mayweather's defense but that just left him open to dazzling ripostes from the champion, who had Berto very close to being KO'd in the bouts waning seconds.

With the victory, Mayweather retains the WBC and WBA welterweight titles while running his record to 49-0, tying the undefeated mark of heavyweight Rocky Marciano, who retired in 1955 at 32 years of age. Berto, a former two-time world champion, falls to 30-4 (23).

Will Mayweather stay true to his word and walk away from the sport, one victory away from breaking Marciano's record? It will be interesting to see what happens in May, 2016.

There were two world title bouts on the undercard, highlighted by a furious firefight between WBO super feather champ Rocky Martinez, 29-2-3 (17), and Orlando Salido, 42-13-3 (29), who reprised their magnificent April 11 clash. More...
