Fight Day in Rochester!: Melissa Hernandez and Gina Chamie Top Huge Card at the Radisson Grand Ballroom

By GM Ross / CanadianBoxiana.com (08-Oct-2015)

Top Prospects Emanuel Colon, Lavisas Williams, Tyler McCreary, and Sonny Fredrickson All in Action!

Pretty Girl PromotionsIt’s fight night again in Rochester! As expected, Pretty Girl Promotions has lined up another action packed event at the Radisson Grand Ballroom, including a stellar main event featuring former champion of the world Melissa “Huracan Shark” Hernandez (21-6-3, 6KOs) of Miami, Florida, in a eight round lightweight tilt with former WBC youth champ Gina Chamie (12-3-0, 5KOs) of Budapest, Hungary. Hernandez has won her last two, including a ten round fight for a minor title last June. With a win over Chamie, she could line up a title shot against WBA titlist Cecilia Comunales (13-1-0, 8KOs) or WBC queen Delphine Persoon (34-1-0, 16KOs). Chamie has tried and failed to break through to the upper echelon of women’s boxing in the past. At just twenty-five years of age, however, Chamie is still learning on the job. Although it’s hard to imagine a scenario where Chamie wins tonight, a fight with the likes of Hernandez will nonetheless be an excellent experience for the young Hungarian. [Click here for more]

Bute-DeGale set for Nov. 28, Dierry Jean warns Crawford, Alcine to test Charlo, Dekada seeking late replacements!

By Ace Freeman (04-Oct-2015)

The latest in Canadian Boxing news from across the great white north!

Canada’s Lucian Bute will return to the super middleweight division to challenge IBF world champion James DeGale on Nov. 28, live from the Centre Videotron in Quebec City. DeGale won the IBF belt earlier this year when he defeated American Andre Dirrell on points. Bute previously held the same title for five years before losing it in his first career setback to Carl Froch in May 2012. Stay tuned for more!

Quebec’s Dierry Jean now has the proper papers needed to enter the United States. Complications arose last month that prevented Jean from traveling to Nebraska to announce his upcoming bout with Crawford, but the Canadian charge is now set to travel and took to his social media to warn Crawford of his pending arrival. Their anticipated title clash is set for Saturday, October 24, at CenturyLink Center in Omaha. The championship event will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing, beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Undefeated junior middleweight contender Jermell Charlo is set to face former world champion and Canadian resident Joachim Alcine. The bout will take place Oct. 31 at NRG Arena in Charlo’s hometown of Houston, Texas, and will headline a Premier Boxing Champions on NBCSN card.

Only 14 days before the opening bell sounds on Dekada’s Premier Fight Night in Calgary, Alberta, three fighters have dropped out of the opening card. Fighters Ryan Wagner, Rob Nichols and Cam O’Connell have lost their original opponents going into the gala event. But the promotion company’s representative, Mike Short, says that Dekada is working vehemently to substitute equal or better talent to ensure a stacked fight card. Inside Dekada will report on final negotiations as they come. Stay tuned for new developments. Dekada’s “Premier Fight Night” card is set to go down Friday, Oct. 16 at the Genesis Centre in Calgary and will air on the Fight Network.

By Ace Freeman (03-Oct-2015)

Viktor Postol KO 10 Lucas Matthysse

Undefeated light welterweight Viktor Postol (28-0, 12 KOs) just picked up the previously vacant 140-pound WBC world title with a stunning tenth round knockout of big punching Lucas Matthysse (37-4, 34 KOs) Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA as seen live on HBO. Postol, trained by the legendary Freddie Roach, used his heigh and reach to negate Matthysse’s power early in the bout. Postol jabbed well and slowly took over the bout with his boxing and ring generalship as the rounds wore on. Late in the bout he really started to dial in the accuracy and started to bust the Argentinian up. In Round 10, a perfect right hand counter dropped Matthysse where he looked bloody and beaten, remaining on his knee for a full ten count. The victory gave the Kiev, Ukraine native his career defining win as he now looks to move on to bigger unification fights in one of boxing’s hottest divisions.

Adrien Broner stops Allakhverdiev, Pedraza gets by Cherry, Orozco tops Soto, more!

By Ace Freeman (03-Oct-2015)

Results from around the boxing world.

Controversial but always entertaining Adrien ‘The Problem’ Broner (31-2, 22 KOs) won the previously vacant WBA 140-pound world title Saturday night on Showtime with a convincing twelfth round stoppage of Khabib Allakhverdiev (19-2, 9 KOs) in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Broner boxed well and really loosened up in the middle rounds to largely dominate the aggressive minded Russian. It became target practice late in the bout and it was finally stopped in the twelfth and final stanza to save Allakhverdiev from further punishment. After the bout Broner called out TMT’s Ashley Theophane.

Unbeaten IBF light welterweight world champion Jose Pedraza (21-0, 12 KOs) successfully defended his title Saturday evening on Showtime with a twelve round split decision win over Edner Cherry (34-7-2, 19 KOs) in a very close and competitive bout. Pedraza boxed well early but the veteran Cherry came on in the middle rounds and landed the heavier shots down the stretch. After twelve rounds were in the bank scores were read ad 117-111(x2) for Pedraza with the third card for 116-112 for Cherry. It appeared the fight could have gone either way with the scores all being too wide in either man’s favour.

In earlier action in Carson, CA, In semi main event action, undefeated light welterweight Antonio Orozco (23-0, 15 KOs) got all he count handle from veteran former world champion Humberto Soto (65-9-2, 35 KOs). Both men hand their moments and there were several rounds that could have gone either way. Orozco lost a point for low blows but after ten rounds were in the books he received wide scores of 98-91 and 97-92(x2) to win a bit more comfortably than was actually the case.

Big punching super featherweight Jason Sosa (18-1-3, 14 KOs) scored another KO Friday night in Philadelphia when he beat up Jorge Pazos (14-9-1, 8 KOs) over six one sided rounds to score his eighteenth professional win. In earlier action, lightweight Tyrell Samuel (16-6-1, 7 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO win over Philly’s Victor Vasquez (19-10-1, 9 KOs) in a thrilling encounter.

Wilder stops a rugged Duhaupas in the eleventh!

By Ace Freeman (26-Sep-2015)

Photo courtesy of PBC

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (35-0, 34 KOs) seemed slightly bothered on route to a competitive but clear eleventh round TKO win over a very rough and tumble Johann Duhaupas (32-3, 20 KOs) on Saturday night at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama as seen live on Premier Boxing Champions on NBC. Wilder swept most of the rounds but had his left eye swollen very early on. The rugged Frenchman pressed the action and Wilder fought much of the bout backing up and firing away from range. Late in the bout Wilder’s speed and pedigree was the difference as he really roughed Duhaupas up in the select segments where he finally put his punches together. In the eleventh a big rally from the champion pushed the challenger back and the bout was halted after about ten unanswered punches with Duhaupas on his feet. Stay tuned for more.
