Why James ‘Lights Out’ Toney is the greatest fighter on the planet! (Hint: Because he said so!)

By Ace Freeman (26-May-2016)

A look back at the chilling and hilarious encounter between the legendary James ‘Lights Out’ Toney and then young rookie boxing writer Ace Freeman in 2006 as the future hall-of-famer scared the daylights out of the Canadian visitor in front of a packed Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood!

Actual moment Toney confronted Ace

It was a sunny mid February afternoon in Los Angeles as I walked up the steps of the famed Wildcard Gym on Vine Street in Hollywood. It was my first time visiting Freddie Roach’s renowned gym and I was excited to see whom I might find upon entering.

At the top of the stairs I reached a closed door with a sign that read “Wildcard Closed from 1:00 to 3:30 for private training camp of James Toney. No admittance, no exceptions”. Never one to be discouraged, I walked right in.

I was met in the entranceway by a large security worker who stepped in my way.

“Who are you?” he asked.

Heavyweight results from the United Kingdom Saturday!

Former heavyweight and cruiserweight world champion David Haye (28-2, 26 KOs) made short and violent work of previously undefeated Arnold Gjergjaj (29-1, 21 KOs) moments ago at the O2 Arena in London.

Canelo vacates title that WBC immediately gives to ‘GGG’, negotiations for 160-pound super-fight still ongoing!

By Ace Freeman (18-May-2016)

A strange turn of middleweight title events Wednesday as Golden Boy Promotions announced Saul Alvarez is vacating the WBC middleweight title only to have the WBC award it to Gennady Golovkin hours later. Both sides maintain they are working towards a deal that will solidify the long awaited super-fight.

Saul Alvarez statement: “After much consideration, today, I instructed my team at Golden Boy Promotions to continue negotiating a fight with Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin and to finalize a deal as quickly as possible. I also informed the WBC that I will vacate its title. For the entirety of my career, I have taken the fights that no one wanted because I fear no man. Never has that been more true than today. I will fight ‘GGG,’ and I will beat ‘GGG’ but I will not be forced into the ring by artificial deadlines. I am hopeful that by putting aside this ticking clock, the two teams can now negotiate this fight, and ‘GGG’ and I can get in the ring as soon as possible and give the fans the fight they want to see.”

WBC statement: “The WBC has received official confirmation from golden promotions with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez decision to vacate the WBC middleweight championship. Gennady Golovkin is hereby recognized as the undisputed WBC middleweight champion of the world. The WBC wishes Canelo great success in his career and will certainly look forward to see Golovkin vs Alvarez materialize in the future.”

By Ace Freeman (15-May-2016)

Results from around the boxing world.

Fast-handed undefeated heavyweight Andy Ruiz (27-0, 18 KOs) picked up another win Saturday in Studio City, California when he stopped veteran Ray Austin (29-7-4, 18 KOs) in Round 4. Ruiz dropped Austin in the first round and landed at will over the next three until Austin elected to remain on his stool at the end of the fourth.

Rising lightweight Saul Rodriguez (20-0-1, 15 KOs) shined in his bout Saturday in Studio City where he stopped Daulis Prescott (31-4, 23 KOs) in Round 7.

In Hong Kong, undefeated local favourite Rex Tso (19-0, 12 KOs) returned to action Saturday in front of a frenzied local Chinese crowd where he stopped Young Gil Bae (27-6, 21 KOs) in the fourth round. The victory earned Tso the vacant WBO Asia Pacific and WBC Asian Boxing Council super flyweight titles.

In an exciting co-featured bout on United Boxing Promotions’ Saturday card in Ontario, undefeated super welterweight Kevin Higson (8-0 1, KO) fought to a spirited ten round decision win over Junmar Emon. It was an exciting back and forth bout with both men landing some good shots but Higson had the edge due to volume and accuracy to win by scores of 99-91, 98-92 and 96-94.

Ontario based Sam Vargas improved to 25-2-1 (13 KOs) Saturday night in New Brunswick when he out-pointed Juan Armando Garcia over ten rounds to capture the WBA-NABA super welterweight title.

An important welterweight bout took place Friday night in at the DC Armory in Washington, D.C, where Dusty Hernandez Harrison and Mike Dallas, Jr. fought to a controversial draw. Many in attendance felt Dallas did enough to win the fight but Harrison squeaked out enough rounds to come away with his record unblemished.

Top rated cruiserweight Mairis Briedis (20-0, 17 KOs) picked up a big win over fellow top contender Olanrewaju Durodola (22-3, 20 KOs) Saturday night in Latvia.

Brandon Cook dominates Davide Doria potentially setting up a WBA interim world 154-pound title clash later this year!

By Ace Freeman (14-May-2016)

Brandon Cook W UD10 Davide Doria

WBA world ranked No. 9 super welterweight Brandon ‘Bad Boy’ Cook (16-0, 19 KOs) pitched a virtual shut-out over German based Italian Davide Doria (14-2-1, 4 KOs) Saturday night at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. It was the main event of United Boxing Promotions’ ‘The Proving Ground’ card and topped a stellar night of action. Cook was the aggressor from the outset but Doria showed early that he was there to fight as both men landed some good shots in Round 1. Cook used his jab well and it set up some great uppercuts that landed flush in the early rounds. Through the middle of the bout the Canadian charge started to go to the body with vigour and did well with his footwork taking small steps back to create the space and range for more power shots upstairs. To his credit the visitor was game but he took a lot of punishment down the stretch. Despite bleeding from a cut caused by a headbut, Cook finished strong and when ten rounds were in the books scores were read as 98-92 and 100-90 (x2), all for the local product. The win secured Cook the WBA Inter-Continental super-welterweight title and hopefully places him on a collision course with WBA interim world 154-pound titleist Jack Culcay.

Brewer started fast and dominated the first round with aggression and accuracy. He found the target more often as the fight went on and Marocchi was under siege early. In Round 3 the visiting corner had seen enough and threw in the towel giving ‘L-Jack’ the sensational win in front of a frenzied local crowd of supporters.
