Huck, Glowacki, Tarver, Cunningham Fight Tonight In Newark

By Richard Eberline August 14th, 2015 All Boxing Previews

One Germany's biggest stars of the ring comes to fight in America for the first time as WBO cruiserweight champ Marco Huck headlines the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

Huck, 38-2-1 (26), squares off against undefeated Pole Krzysztof Glowacki, 24-0 (15), and the 30 year old Berlin resident will put his belt at risk for the 14th occasion.

29 year old southpaw Glowacki has won the WBO European/Intercontinental and Polish titles but has never gone above a Continental level of competition not fought outside of his homeland.

This bout is designed for Huck to look good in front of an American audience, which will likely occur given Glowacki's inexperience at world level in terms of opposition faced and handling the high profile media spotlight.

This also could be Huck's final appearance in the cruiser division after 11 years at the weight, which could also explain the appearance of the chief support bout on the bill: Steve Cunningham vs. Antonio Tarver at heavyweight, with Huck probably penciled in to face the winner next year in the same venue.

Huck made one previous appearance at heavyweight, giving the WBA champ at the time, Alexander Povetkin, a very hard time in 2012 on the way to losing a somewhat controversial majority decision.

But Huck also gets hit a lot in his bouts and after 41 contests, could have left it too late to hope to compete against the reigning champs at heavyweight, Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder. More...

World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Singyu Wins WBO Title In Thailand

By Wellington Amadulu August 11th, 2015 All Boxing Results

There was only one world title contest this weekend and that clash for the vacant WBO bantam crown occurred on Friday at Central Stadium in Ratchaburi, Thailand with Bangkok's Pundluang Sor Singyu, 51-3 (35), taking on Ryo Akaho, 26-2-2 (18).

Local veteran Singyu won the WBO bantam belt in 2012, only to lose it five months later and then failed in his bid to unseat champion Tomoki Kameda in 2014.

Singyu is only 27 years old but having had to endure the wear and tear of 53 professional fights, this could have been his last shot to regain the world stage.

Across the ring was the taller Akaho, of Yokohama, Japan, who came into the contest with seven straight wins, six inside the distance, and as the WBO International titlist.

The lanky 29 year old has also held the OPBF super fly crown over two defenses but had jumped up to bantam after an unsuccessful 2012 attempt at the WBC title at 115 pounds.

Once the bell rang in Ratchaburi, the combatants dispensed with any feeling out strategy, as jabs were just used as rangefinders for big right hands. Akaho got in the first good shot but Singyu took it well. More...


WBC Champ Stevenson Chooses Karpency For Next Title Defense

By Gonzo Glenn Gasket August 8th, 2015 All Boxing News

It was announced this week that WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson will defend his title against challenger Tommy Karpency on September 11 at Toronto's Richoh Centre.

This is a big disappointment to fans that were hoping to see "Superman" face WBA/WBO/IBF kingpin Sergey Kovalev, who in late July destroyed yet another opponent.

Obviously, putting together a unification contest of epic proportions would take time to build the pairing through the media in order to maximize financial gain and that will have to wait.

But why Karpency? He's a good fighter with plenty of experience but he's not one of the top men in the division and he's ranked #9 in the WBC, so not even the mandatory challenger.

The answer is probably that this is a "stay busy" bout for Stevenson, hoping to avoid both inactivity and a loss until the Kovalev unification finally materializes.

Let's take a look at the eight fighters that are rated above Karpency in the WBC rankings: Issac Chilemba, Andrzej Fonfara, Eleider Alvarez, Artur Beterbiev, Jean Pascal, Edwin Rodriguez, Sean Monaghan and Tommy Oosthuizen.

Oosthuizen lost his IBO belt on the scales in June and is probably no longer a light heavyweight, Monaghan might be a world beater but with the padded record he has, who knows if he can really fight?

Rodriguez also has faced a lot of underachievers and was badly outboxed by Andre Ward when he did step up to world class, while Jean Pascal barely made it past an unknown Cuban last month. More...
