Nery Ends Yamanaka's Reign in Japan Nery Ends Yamanaka's Reign in Japan
By Derek Bonnett Twenty-two year old Mexican, Luis "Pantera" Nery crashed Shinsuke Yamanaka’s bantamweight world title reign with a devastating performance that just may lead the dethroned champion toward retirement like his countryman Takashi Uchiyama and Takashi Miura last month. The challenger traveled from Tijuana, Mexico to Shimazu Arena in Kyoto, Japan.
Lomachenko Retires Marriaga/Beltran Slips Past Vasquez Lomachenko Retires Marriaga/Beltran Slips Past Vasquez
By Derek Bonnett Vasyl Lomachenko put his WBO 130-pound title on the line against Miguel Marriaga at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, USA. The match-up, shown live on ESPN without a premium price tag, did little to inspire the imagination, but it did conjure my recollection of another boxer I had not thought of in some time: Jimmy Garcia.
More Controversy in Ward TKO of Kovalev/Rigondeaux Ko's Flores More Controversy in Ward TKO of Kovalev/Rigondeaux Ko's Flores
By Derek Bonnett The world’s top two light heavyweights Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev clashed at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino and Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada for a genuine super fight rematch scheduled for twelve rounds. The first bout produced an excellent twelve round display of boxing ability from both men and sparked great controversy following Ward receiving a unanimous decision by a single point. The rematch produced even more, but, instead of poor judging, referee Tony W
Stevenson Stops Fonfara Early; Alvarez Ready For Title Shot Stevenson Stops Fonfara Early; Alvarez Ready For Title Shot
By Derek Bonnett Adonis Stevenson put his light heavyweight title on the line in a rematch with Poland’s Andrej Fonfara at Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. In their first encounter, Stevenson walked away with a competitive decision victory. The rematch ended more swiftly if not too hastily, but Virgil Hunter, Fonfara’s trainer had seen enough.
Kudryashov Avenges Lone Loss; Stops Durodola in Fifth Kudryashov Avenges Lone Loss; Stops Durodola in Fifth
By Derek Bonnett At Sports Palace in Rostov-na- Donu, Russia, big punching Dmitry Kudryashov met Olanrewaju Durodola in a rematch of their 2015 fight of the year. The two round war, which saw Kudryashov losing his unbeaten record by stoppage promised fireworks in the rematch and the two big punching cruiserweights delivered another great war.
Melindo Crushes Yaegashi; Inoue Stops Rodriguez in Three Melindo Crushes Yaegashi; Inoue Stops Rodriguez in Three
By Derek Bonnett Just one day after a huge triple header featuring Ryota Murata, Ken Shiro, and Daigo Higa in world championship bouts, both Naoya Inoue and Akira Yaegashi put their respective world titles on the line at the very same Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan. Today’s action was brief by comparison, but another shock wave was sent throughout the light flyweight division and one of boxing’s best lived up to his moniker.
Tanaka Wins War With Acosta Tanaka Wins War With Acosta
By Derek Bonnett In other Japanese action, Japanese Wonder Kid, Kosei Tanaka, put his light flyweight title on the line against little known Angel Acosta at Takeda Teva Ocean Arena in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan. Tanaka was making the first defense of his title against the Puerto Rican challenger. The two boxers let it all hang out for twelve action packed rounds which saw the champion retaining his title, but the challenger had plenty of room to gripe with the final scores.
Murata Denied Against N'Dam; Higa and Shiro Add Titles to Japanese Golden Era Murata Denied Against N'Dam; Higa and Shiro Add Titles to Japanese Golden Era
By Derek Bonnett Two Japanese boxers captured their first world championships as a professional at Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan this morning, May 20. A third fell victim to poor scoring. Ryota Murata overcame a slow start to seemingly capture a middleweight strap with a decision over Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam. However, the judges favored N’Dam controversially. Daigo Higa dropped Mexico’s Juan Hernandez six times throughout the six rounds contested to claim a flyweight
Ioka Defends Title; Sitthiprasert Goes Distance Ioka Defends Title; Sitthiprasert Goes Distance
By Derek Bonnett Kazuto Ioka placed his WBA flyweight title on the line at EDION Arena in Osaka, Japan against Noknoi Sitthiprasert in a twelve round contest. Ioka, nephew of the great Hiroki Ioka, set a workman-like pace moving his shots to the body and head of his challenger. What started as taps to the body with a jab evolved into Ioka’s preferred combo of a sinking hook to the body followed by an uppercut through the guard of the Thai-boxer.
Tapales Repeats Win Over Omori in Slugfest Tapales Repeats Win Over Omori in Slugfest
Marlon Tapales may have lost his WBO bantamweight title to the scales after having to drop a reported ten pounds in the final days of preparation, but he and Shohei Omori put on a heated performance. Tapales, running on fumes from the start, fought with a look of desperation as if unaware how far his gas tank could take him.
