Lucian Bute vs. Badou Jack ends in controversial draw

By Ace Freeman (30-Apr-2016)

Lucian Bute vs. Badou Jack = Majority Draw

Canada’s Lucian Bute (32-4, 25 KOs) came away with a controversial draw Saturday night in Washington D.C. in his twelve round title fight with defending champion Badou Jack (21-1-1, 12 KOs) as seen live on Showtime. Similar to his last outing, Bute gave a good effort but was largely out-worked by the younger, busier Jack. It was a good battle with a lot of in-close action but Jack came away having out-landed Bute by over a hundred punches in the bout. After twelve rounds were complete one plausible score of 117-111 for Jack was read, followed by two gridlocked scores of 114-114 which rendered the bout a majority draw. The broadcast team and most people in attendance lashed out at the decision, and Jack was outraged. Bute said he felt the fight was close and thought he won. Stay tuned for more.

DeGale fought cautiously in the final two rounds, letting Medina into the fight on one official scorecard (115-113), while the other two judges scored it 117-113.

GGG Looms Large: Golovkin terminates Wade in two!

By Ace Freeman (23-Apr-2016)

Gennady Golovkin KO 2 Dominic Wade

Monstrous WBA/IBF middleweight world champion Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin (35-0, 32 KOs) absolutely destroyed mandatory challenger and top rated Dominic Wade (18-1, 12 KOs) in under six minutes moments ago in Inglewood, California as seen live on HBO. Golovkin decked Wade in the closing moments of Round 1 and looked like the Terminator from the outset. He walked through anything Wade attempted to throw and overpowered him like he was nothing. Two more knockdowns in Round 2 ensued, and while Wade showed heart to continue after the first one, he was completely done and did not beat the count on the second trip to the canvass. The official end came at 2:37 of Round 2. In his post fight comments, Golovkin told fellow middleweight titleist Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez to had over his belt if he is to continue to be unwilling to unify. Stay tuned for more.

‘Chocolatito’ puts a paint-job on Arroyo on HBO!

By Ace Freeman (23-Apr-2016)

Roman Gonzalez W UD12 McWilliams Arroyo

Top rated pound-for-pound artist Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez (45-0, 38 KOs) defended his WBC flyweight title with a beautifully orchestrated twelve round drubbing of top rated contender McWilliams Arroyo (16-3, 14 KOs) Saturday night in the greater Los Angeles area as seen live on HBO. Gonzalez took the first round to study his foe and then kicked it into high gear throwing over 1000 punches in the bout. He doubled up Arroyo in punches thrown and landed and his economical accurate pressure-punching was a thing of beauty. To his credit Arroyo took a beating but he was never in the fight as ‘Chocolatito’ cruised to scores of 120-108 and 119-109 (x2) to defend his crown.
