By Derek Bonnett: The final weekend of October produced a myriad of results among SecondsOut ranked fighters. An ageless champion changed his name and once again made history. A pair of young champions on the rise notched successful title defenses. A former world champion posted a lopsided win and a promising contender added a much needed jolt to his career. All this and more as the best in the business, that is to say, the boxing business, remained On the Move.


On Saturday, October 26, at EWE-Arena, Oldenburg, Niedersachsen, Germany, Arthur Abraham defeated Giovanni De Carolis by unanimous decision in a twelve round super middleweight bout. The scores favored Abraham 120-108 and 119-109 twice. Abraham elevated his record to 38-4 (28). De Carolis fell to 20-5 (10).


Abraham hung on to his number nine ranking among SecondsOut’s elite super middleweights.


At Makati Coliseum, Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines, Jhon Reil Casimero stopped Felipe Salguero in eleven rounds of a IBF light flyweight title bout. Salguera was dropped in the eighth, ninth, and eleventh rounds. Casimero notched the third defense of his title and raised his ledger to 19-2 (11). Salguero fell to 18-5-1 (11).


Casimero solidified his number three ranking among SecondsOut’s premiere 108-pounders.


At Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield, Yorkshire, United Kingdom, Kell Brook stopped Vyacheslav Senchenko in the fourth round of a welterweight bout. Brook dropped Senchenko in the third and fourth rounds before the stoppage came at the 2:57 mark. Brook remained unbeaten at 31-0 (21). Senchenko slipped to 34-2 (23).


Brook climbed from sixth to fifth in the SecondsOut welterweight rankings. Robert Guerrero dropped from fifth to sixth.

At Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA, Bernard Hopkins decisioned Karo Murat in a twelve round IBF light heavyweight title bout. Two judges scored the bout 119-109 while the third saw it 117-110. Hopkins made history by becoming the oldest world champion to defend his world title in raising his dossier to 54-6-2 (32). Murat fell to 25-2-1 (15).


Hopkins maintained his number three ranking at SecondsOut among the world’s best light heavyweights.


Also on the card, Peter Quillin stopped Gabriel Rosado on cuts in the tenth round of a WBO middleweight title bout. Rosado hit the canvas in the second round before the bout ended at :40 of the tenth round. Quillin defended his title for the second time in raising his record to 30-0 (22). Rosado fell to 21-7 (13) 1 NC.


Quillin remained SecondsOut’s sixth ranked middleweight in the world.
