Even though he just graduated from high school, undefeated Welterweight prospect, Thomas “Cornflake” LaManna received a crash course in boxing education to the highest degree as he spent a week at the famed Mayweather Boxing Gym in Las Vegas.
LaManna, who is preparing to fight for the BAM Youth title on September 14th at The Robert Treat Hotel in Newark, New Jersey gained a ton of knowledge and experience just being around what many call “The first family of boxing” as he gets ready for his fight.
“It was an incredible experience to be out there”, said the nineteen year old LaManna, who trained for six days in the gym.
“Besides Floyd, there were a ton of other world class fighters out there and watching them made me push my training up a few notches. Those guys have been to the top of the mountain in this sport and I am so inspired by that” More...

A most patient Maurice 'Mo Bettah' Harris, fighting a slow paced punch and hold war with Derric Rossy, finally dropped Rossy to the canvas midway through the 12th round and battered Rossy senseless on the ropes to score a TKO at 1:35 of the 12th and final round to retain the USBA heavyweight title.
The bout was the main event of a four bout card Saturday at Resorts Hotel Casino Superstar Theatre, Atlantic City, New Jersey. The card was the first promotion for Carla Hill, wife of former world light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion Virgil Hill. Bouts were broadcast live on gofightlive with top notch commentary by Marc Abrams.
Harris, 26-15-2 (12), East Orange, New Jersey, who knocked out future champion 16-0 Siarhei Liakhovich in the ninth round in 2002, went into the 12th round for the second time in his last three fights, and scored the latest stoppage in his 42 bout career stretching back to 1992. More...

In the televised ESPN main event of a five bout card promoted by Bob Arum 's Top Rank and Joe DeGuardia Star Boxing, world ranked Junior Middleweights Delvin Rodriguez and Pawel Wolak battled to an exciting ten round majority draw in front of a capacity crowd at Roseland Ballroom in New York City.
Rodriguez was neither riled nor intimidated by the many Polish fans waving flags and booing jeers, but he had his hands full from the opening bell. Rodriguez had height and reach advantage, but fought the entire bout as a side to side counterpuncher at close quarters, relying instead on power punching to impress the judges.
Wolak fought the entire bout coming forward with incredible pressure in the style of Rocky Marciano, coming forward all the way. However, despite having the consistent offense, Wolak did not punch with power and Rodriguez was never in trouble. Rodriguez did not run or clinch, to his credit, and kept the bout extremely close on the scorecards with intense power shots which turned the right eye area of Wolak into a swollen pink grapefruit.
While the punches of Rodriguez never bothered Wolak, the visual damage was obvious and Wolak's grotesque eye may have influenced the scoring. The ring was not cut off, though at times Delvin countered off the ropes, or battled Wolak in center ring in a telephone booth. The bout was exciting, and extraordinary for the world class level it was fought.
Rodriguez was fighting for his life, and fought this bout much like Ishe Smith did when Smith beat Wolak in 2008, letting Wolak come at him aggressively and countered with heavy power shots.
For Wolak, a Debrica, Poland native, now fighting out of New Jersey, 29-1-1 (19), it was the first draw of his career since he turned pro in 2004, and ended an eight bout winning streak. For Rodriguez, a Dominican now fighting out of Danbury, Connecticut, 25-5-3 (14), has won only one of his last five bouts, in a streak going back to his 12 round split decision rematch loss to Isaac Hlatshwayo for the vacant IBF welterweight title in August 2009.

In the main event held at the Robert Treat Best Western Hotel in Newark, New Jersey, Ossie Duran, a 34 year old Ghana middleweight fighting out of Paterson, New Jersey, won the USBA Northeastern Regional Middleweight title with a tenth round stoppage over Latif Mundy of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Though the more experienced and aggressive Duran appeared to win every round on the scorecards, Mundy remained very competitive till late in the tenth. Mundy suddenly appeared defenseless, with Duran pummeling him with head shots on the ropes near a corner, forcing referee Lindsay Page to stop the bout at 2:29 of the tenth and final round.
Duran, now 26-8-2 (10), outclassed Mundy by using his ring experience to both throw and land more punches by volume, using a lot of overhand left and right leads to the head, as well as doing going bodywork throughout the contest. Mundy had a good defense, and landed some good counters.
Mundy's best chance was to try to stay close to Duran and try to score on the inside, but he was unable to sustain any inside exchanges. Duran stood in front of Mundy nearly the entire contest, but Mundy, now 10-3 (4), who kept moving, lacked the skills to land blows of significance on the target. Neither fighter changed their game plan.
Duran, who had gone ten rounds or more fifteen times going into the contest, knew Mundy had never been past the eighth round, and patiently wore him down before finally getting to him near the end of the bout. Mundy still has potential, but is not yet a ten round fighter. More...
