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...

In a hard fought contest, recently dethroned WBC welter champion Andre Berto got right back on the horse by stopping IBF titlist Jan Zaveck at the Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, MS.
Berto answered any questions about his remaining abilities following a punishing loss to Victor Ortiz in April with a good performance against Slovenian hard man Zaveck.
The IBF champion had a good first round, winning a tactical battle by getting in close where the faster Berto's speed advantage could be lessened.
Zaveck had to take hard punches, particularly to the midsection, in order to gain this position but the proximity paid off late in the first frame when he rattled Berto with solid short hooks.
The action picked up in the second and rounds as Berto's quicker hands found the mark often but his lack of an effective defense allowed Zaveck to remain in the bout, scoring with crisp punches of his own and making for an exciting, pitched battle. More...

The long matriculation of 2004 Olympic Gold Medallist Alexander Povetkin came to a close last night as the Russian outboxed ex-WBA titlist Ruslan Chagaev to capture the vacant WBA heavyweight belt at Messehalle in Erfurt, Germany.
The bout started slowly as the combatants sized each other up with probing jabs and a vast array of fake moves and pulled punches.
By the third things began to heat up a bit as Povetkin started putting his shots together, following the jab with a straight right and a more effective left uppercut.
Chagaev didn't lead very often, content to sit back and wait for openings for his power left hand and while he did score at times with the punch when Povetkin didn't get back out or cover up after throwing, the Uzbek southpaw wasn't given many opportunities.
Povetkin began mixing in left hands to the body that provided an excellent bookend to the jab, right, left uppercut combinations that were winning rounds.
Chagaev simply wasn't active enough to take many rounds. Povetkin managed to nullify most of Chagaev's efforts by backing off whenever the former WBA champ came forward with punches and also keeping Chagaev on the defensive. More...
