WBC light middle titlist Saul Alvarez kept hold of his belt for the second time with a sixth round finishing against veteran challenger Alfonso Gomez at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Former WBA welter title challenger Gomez started off by pressuring Alvarez, at 21 nine years younger than Gomez, but the champion proved able to outbox the challenger during the exchanges, highlighted by Gomez hitting the deck at the end of the first frame.
Undaunted, Gomez continued his advance in the second, this time working behind the jab as he and Alvarez traded right hands and lefts to the body. Alvarez remained cautious, letting Gomez lead and content to counter when the opportunity presented itself. More...

Universidad Autonoma in Guadalajara, Mexico was the site of a thrilling fight last evening that saw Juan Carlos Salgado survive a rocky final round to capture the vacant IBF super feather crown against Argenis Mendez.
Salgado went into the bout having won two straight after losing the WBA super feather title to Takashi Uchiyama in Japan last year but the Mexico City man was expected to have a tough night against New York based Dominican Mendez.
Earlier this year Mendez had won an IBF title eliminator with a sharp performance against a former owner of that title, Cassius Baloyi, in South Africa, and had been victorious in his last six appearances.
Once the bell rang, the fighters got right down to combat with Salgado bringing the pressure but Mendez surprisingly chose to stand and fight rather than to use his advantages of speed and skill and box. More...

Undefeated ex-WBA and IBF featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa defeated heavy-handed former WBO super bantam titlist Daniel Ponce De Leon last night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
Delivering a toned-down cautious performance, likely out of respect to southpaw Ponce De Leon's punching power, former Cuban amateur star Gamboa nonetheless put on a display of precision boxing, hitting his opponent when he pleased while rarely getting caught with anything in return.
Gamboa nullified Ponce De Leon's offense on sheer reflexes alone; ducking, slipping or zipping in lightning fast counters whenever the Mexican came forward looking to do damage.
Gone from Gamboa's repertoire were the blizzard of devil-may-care combinations that he attacked opponents with in previous fights, replaced with a cool, measured approach that occasional erupted into lethal brilliance. More...

Paxton Promotions and Worcester MA’s own two-time world boxing champion “El Gallo” Jose Antonio Rivera (41-6-1, 24 KOs) will step through the ropes for the third time this year since coming off of a two year hiatus on Saturday November 5th at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT on a card promoted by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment and Sports.
Rivera’s opponent at this time is TBA. Since his return to the ring this past May after a layoff dating back to August of 2008, Rivera is looking for his third straight victory in 2011.
His first fight after his two year layoff was a unanimous decision over veteran Luis Maysonet back in May. He returned to the ring to win an eight round unanimous decision in July at the Mohegan Sun Arena over Oregon’s Paul Mpendo.
Rivera is a two time WBA champion, winning the titles in both the welterweight and junior middleweight divisions, in addition to his first title, the NABA championship belt back in 2001 after defeating Patrick Byrd in Miami, FL. More...

In a big night of boxing at the Stade de l’Est in Saint Denis on the beautiful Indian Ocean island of Reunion (a French overseas department), reigning WBF womens light welterweight champion Myriam Lamare (18-3, 10 KO’s) will make the second defense of her world title against the experienced former world champion Lely Luz Florez (16-5, 7 KO’s) from Columbia on September 9.
Local favorite Lamare captured the WBF belt in 2009 with a dominating decision win over Ann Saccurato (the WBF 2009 Female Fight Of The Year). She made her first title defence a successful one when she thoroughly dominated and stopped highly ranked Lucia Morelli from Italy last November in the sixth round of their bout.
Morelli has since won the WIBF lightweight world title and is still considered to be one of the best in the game. From 2004 to 2006, the 36-years old Lamara was the WBA light welterweight championess, defending that title five times. She held the WIBF strap briefly as well.
Currently residing in Marseille, France, she is known for her hard and accurate punching. Before turning professional in 2003, she won European and world titles on the amateur level. The September 9 show will not only feature Lamare in the main event, she and her company LM Sport Event will also promote the event. More...

Tyson Fury says he will battle with North American champion Nicolai Firtha at Belfast's King's Hall on September 17 because he wants to give the Irish fans a night to remember.
The 12 round international contest will be shown live on Channel 5.
British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Fury could have fought lesser men but instead he faces the 32-year-old from Ohio who two fights ago went the distance with the new WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin who recently won his title with a points win over Ruslan Chagaev.
Firtha won the NABA title in 2010 after stopping Tony Grano in two rounds and since then he has been in the form of his life, his most recent victory coming on 13th August in Ohio and he has warned Fury's promoter Mick Hennessy that he is ready to halt the Fury bandwagon. More...

Two big Mexican names were in action last night south of the border with ex-three weight world champion Humberto Soto and former world middleweight title challenger Marco Antonio Rubio treading the boards on separate fight cards.
Soto, who gave up his WBC lightweight crown in July after four successful title defenses, was operating officially as a light welter for the first time in a scheduled ten round affair with former WBA lightweight strapholder Jose Alfaro at a packed Estadio Centario in Los Mochis, Mexico.
Buoyed by a rabid hometown audience, Soto went right to work, stalking his Nicaraguan rival with an effective jab that kept Alfaro guessing.
Soto's pressure had Alfaro struggling to find his own offense and by the end of the first round, the local icon had shaken the visitor with a bracing straight right, left hook sequence.
Alfaro came out more aggressive in the second but was immediately countered by a four punch combination from Soto that also saw an accidental head clash, leaving both fighters with bad cuts above the right eye. More...

Scott Quigg is to be trained by Joe Gallagher, and will start working under his guidance from Monday.
The WBA intercontinental super-bantamweight champion had been trained by Pat Barrett after his long time guru Brian Hughes retired earlier this year.
Quigg, 22, said: “There were no problems with Pat but it got to a point that I had been at the Collyhurst gym so long I went stale.
“I was the only professional fighter in the gym training regularly. When I first went there Michael Jennings, Thomas McDonagh, Matthew Hall, Tony Doherty and Gary Lockett trained alongside me and every day was a competition. More...

Urged on by a rabid hometown audience, it was an inspired performance from Japanese super flyweight Tomonobu Shimizu that produced a shocking upset of WBA champion Hugo Fidel Cazares last night at Tokyo's Nihon Budokan.
Shimizu, who had fought most of his career at flyweight, started the contest absolutely on fire, strafing Mexican southpaw Cazares with long-armed hooks from every conceivable angle.
The slower champion was taken aback by the assault and patiently rode out the storm as fast-handed Shimizu banked the early frames with a much higher workrate.
When the challenger began to slow down, the far more experienced Cazares went to work, methodically cutting off the ring and landing hard shots to sweep the middle rounds.
But Shimizu somehow managed to regain control over the later rounds, getting in with punches before slipping back out before Cazares, who was fighting with a bad cut above his left eye, could effectively return fire. More...

It was a night of boxing last evening as more that 5,000 fans packed Derwent Entertainment Centre in Hobart on the Australian Island of Tasmania as middleweight Daniel Geale successfully defended his IBF title against Ermosele Albert.
37 year old Miami, Florida based Nigerian Albert came into the bout as IBO Latino middleweight beltholder after failing to win a regional light middle strap on four occasions.
Despite putting his all into the effort, Albert simply could not get to grips with the shorter, much faster and skilled Tasmania born Geale, 30, of Mt. Annan, New South Wales.
For 12 rounds, Geale, who defeated Sebastian Sylvester for the IBF title this past May, practiced a stick and move strategy, frustrating Albert by refusing to stand and trade punches but there were plenty of brief exchanges with both men finding the target.
But despite admitting afterward fighting with an injured right hand, Geale was the busier, more accurate boxer, switching stances and giving angles to prevent Albert from putting together a cohesive offense.
After the 12 rounds were over, Geale swept the scorecards 119-109, 117-111 and 116-112. More...

The big mid-week action of August's last days takes place Wednesday night at Nihon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan with the both the WBA bantam and super flyweight titles at risk in another installment of the Mexico vs. Japan rivalry of the lighter weight classes.
Tokyo based WBA 118 pound king Koki Kameda, 25-1 (16), faces undefeated Tijuana based Mexican David De La Mora, 23-0 (16), while 115 pound WBA ruler Hugo Fidel Cazares, 35-6-2 (25), of Los Mochis, Mexico squares off against local man Tomonobu Shimizu, 18-3-1 (9).
