Gonzalez Battles to Fourth Divisional Title Gonzalez Battles to Fourth Divisional Title
By Derek Bonnett The talk going into the September 10 clash between WBC super flyweight champion Carlos Cuadras and Pound for Pound number one fighter Roman Gonzalez centered on one possibility: would Gonzalez surpass the great Alexis Arguello as a four division champion? However, few prognosticated the super flyweight Super Fight would contend for 2016’s Fight of the Year. When the final scores were read, history was indeed made, but Nicaragua’s hero endured more pain and struggle
Corner Saves Brave Brook from Golovkin Corner Saves Brave Brook from Golovkin
By Derek Bonnett The actions of Dominic Ingle at the O2 Arena in London, England should not overshadow those of the two excellent middleweight boxers in the ring on September 10. Gennady Golovkin’s search for his twenty-third straight KO was greatly challenged by a very game effort from IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook. The Special One remained just that even after his corner opted to throw in the towel in round five due to concerns for Brook’s eye.

By Derek Bonnett British neophyte Charlie Edwards met John Riel Casimero at the O2 Arena in a bid to lift the IBF flyweight title. Casimero, making the first defense of the title he won back in May, was favored, but some sentimental money backed Edwards to become the fifteenth current reigning world boxing champion from the United Kingdom.
Ortiz Tames Tiger; Vargas Bombs Sadam Ortiz Tames Tiger; Vargas Bombs Sadam
By Derek Bonnett World championship caliber boxing returned to the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C., USA for HBO’s latest installment of Boxing After Dark. The two-fight televised card featured welterweights and heavyweights in action in bouts with the potential for serious divisional shaping ramifications. The fans got what they expected in the main event from Luis Ortiz and Tony Thompson, but Jessie Vargas and Sadam Ali provided fans with their money’s worth in one of the year&
Yamanaka Rally Too Much For Solis; Scores Too Wide Yamanaka Rally Too Much For Solis; Scores Too Wide
By Derek Bonnett Following his questionable decision over Panama’s Anselmo Moreno, WBC bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka met Venezuela’s Liborio Solis in a highly overlooked 118-pound clash. The Japanese champion made the tenth defense of his title at Shimazu Arena, Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan in a hotly contested match-up which, for the moment, ranks among the best fights this year.
Knockout CP Freshmart Owns Buitrago in Rematch Knockout CP Freshmart Owns Buitrago in Rematch
By Derek Bonnett: Back in October 2014, Thailand’s Knockout CP Freshmart won a controversial decision over Nicaragua’s Carlos Buitrago to become the WBA’s 105-pound interim champion, which these days is a glorified number one status. Buitrago seemingly landed the better punches and in greater volume than the home favorite. The narrow decision by unanimous two point margins left a bad taste in the mouth of some fans, but arguably not as bad as the one Buitrago left following
Zou Shines at Home; Murata Wins in Two Zou Shines at Home; Murata Wins in Two
By Derek Bonnett China’s most famous professional boxer and one-time amateur standout, Shiming Zou returned to the ring for the first time since losing in a world title bout against Amnat Ruenroeng last March. Japan’s rising middleweight prospect Ryota Murata also saw action on the bill.

By Derek Bonnett The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA played host to the Robert Guerrero-Danny Garcia clash for the vacant WBC welterweight title. On the undercard, some divisional shaping action took place in the heavyweight and welterweight divisions as two rising contenders broke the spirits of two proven, durable contenders.
Donaire Wins Title; Raises More Doubt Donaire Wins Title; Raises More Doubt
By Derek Bonnett Fighting on Metro PCS TruTV’s Friday Night Knockout series for the first time, Nonito Donaire sought to re-establish himself as a world champion worthy of big-time boxing match-ups under the limelight. Donaire, fighting on the undercard of Puerto Rican prospect Felix Verdejo, did just that for about six rounds against Cesar Juarez at Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Puerto Rico. For the other six rounds, Donaire swelled, bled, tired, and clung to victory after
Kimura Dethrones Guevara; Upset or Controversy? Kimura Dethrones Guevara; Upset or Controversy?
By Derek Bonnett Light flyweight champion Pedro Guevara traveled to Xebio Arena in Sendai, Miyagi, Japan to make his third defense of the WBC crown. The hometown challenger sported commendable experience, but lacked a salient victory to suggest he was capable of defeating the rising Mexican champion. However, after twelve exciting rounds, that’s exactly what Kimura did in the eyes of two out of three judges.
