Watch: DeGale drops Dirrell on route to historic win!

By FightFan.com Staff (24-May-2015)

Video highlights courtesy of Premier Boxing Champions: James DeGale became the first British Olympic gold medalist to win a world championship as he outpointed Andre Dirrell for a unanimous decision victory Saturday in Boston. DeGale took control of the fight early, scoring a pair of knockdowns in Round 2 via thundering overhand lefts. Dirrell got back into the fight during the middle rounds, however, rallying by throwing more than DeGale, who began to focus more on his lateral movement and counterpunching. But DeGale ended the fight in strong fashion, picking up the pace and out-landing Dirrell en route to a history-making victory.

Professional boxing returned with a BANG to Moncton Lions Activity Center in Moncton, New Brunswick, Saturday evening where undefeated New Brunswick junior middleweight Brandon Brewer (14-0-1, 7 KOs) stopped Hungary’s Gyula Vajda (18-10, 12 KOs) in the second round before a boisterous local crowd. In a co-featured bout, top international super bantamweight world contender Tyson ‘Prince of Hali’ Cave (26-3, 9 KOs), of Halifax, Nova Scotia scored a third round stoppage of Mexico’s big punching Jovanny Soto (39-19-1, 34 KOs). On the undercard, heavyweight Chris Norrad pounded out an eight round unanimous decision over David Whittom, while Nathan Miller blitzed Denis Martin in the first round of a cruiserweight bout. In a preliminary bout, Emile Arsenault stopped Nathan Guitard in the first round of a heavyweight contest. The card was presented by Dwayne Storey’s Thunder Promotions.

Britain’s James ‘Chunky’ DeGale (21-1, 14 KOs) captured the vacant IBF World super middleweight title with a narrow unanimous decision victory over Andre Dirrell (24-2, 16 KOs) as seen moments ago live on Premier Boxing Champions on NBC from the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts. In the early going, both fighters looked to measure each other in a tactical Round 1. Toward the end of the second stanza it was DeGale who first found the mark with a bomb of an overhand left that landed on the button. Dirrell was in a world of trouble and was sent crashing to the canvass. The American beat the count but was sent down a second time on unsteady legs only to be saved by the bell in what was a 10-7 round for DeGale. The Englishman was motivated by the early success and looked strong in the ensuing rounds but Dirrell slowly worked his way back into the fight and had some good success in the middle rounds with sustained accuracy and pressure. Both men had their moments late in the bout with a few momentum swings, but DeGale seemed to step it up in the final stanza to finish strong. Once twelve rounds were in the books the scores were read as 114-112 (x2) and a puzzling 117-109 to give DeGale the unanimous decision win.

Weekend Scorecard: Logan McGuinness wins in Boston, Fedosov and Thompson win ESPN Boxcino Tournament!

By Ace Freeman (23-May-2015)

Results from around the boxing world.

Orangeville, Ontario’s Logan ‘Cotton’ McGuinness improved to 23-0-1 (10 KOs) today at the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts when he out-pointed Mexico’s Gerardo Cuevas (17-14, 15 KOs) over six rounds on the Andre Dirrell-James DeGale undercard. McGuinness had to get up off the canvass in the first when he went down off balance in what was a flash knockdown. Logan went right back to work and quickly evened up the cards before pulling ahead late in the short bout. After six rounds were in the bank, scores were read as 57-56 across the board, all for McGuinness.

Heavyweight Andrey Fedosov (28-3, 23 KOs) won the 2015 Boxcino final Friday night on the series finale of ESPN2′s “Friday Night Fights” at the Omega Products Center in Corona, California, when he stopped Donovan Dennis (14-3, 11 KOs) in Round 8. Fedosov was in control the entire way having scored several knockdowns through out and he finished the job in the eighth to win the widely watched tournament.

In the Middleweight portion of the Boxcino tournament on EPSN, John Thompson (17-1, 6 KOs) punished Brandon Adams (17-2, 12 KOs) in the second round to score the stoppage win. A left hook started things off for Thompson as he battered Adams to the deck in Round 2. Adams beat the count but was pressed to the ropes in the followup attack where Thompson landed several telling blows that prompted the stoppage.

Professional boxing returned to the Colisee Isabelle Brasseur in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec with a bag Friday night when Michel Croteau’s Promotions Coup de Poing presented “Gala de Boxe Collision Pro-Am”. In an exciting featured bout, Quebec based super lightweight Yves Ulysse Jr (7-0, 5 KOs) dominated and stopped Mexico’s Noel Mejia Rincon (13-5-1, 9 KOs) in five rounds in a very impressive showing. On the undercard, Adam Green pounded out a split decision over Francesco Cotroni and Damian Lawniczak defeated pro-debuter Kimmy St Pierre by four round unanimous decision. Check out the above video shot by Way Productions’ Pierre Lavoie and see the brutal ending of the Ulysse Jr. bout where he dispatched Rincon in the fifth.

Former world title challenger Donovan ‘Razor’ Ruddock (40-5-1, 30 KOs) won his second consecutive fight on the comeback trail after a near fifteen year absence from the ring when he pounded out a narrow majority decision win over Longueuil’s Eric Barrak (8-3, 7 KOs) Friday night in a six round bout at Colisee Isabelle Brasseur in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. Barrak started strong but the 51-year old Ruddock held on under some early pressure. Both men appeared to slow as the rounds went on but Ruddock’s experience paid off as he mustered a bit more late in the fight to pull ahead. After six rounds were in the books the scores were read as 58-56 (x2) for Ruddock with the third tally even at 57-57. It was Razor’s second bout of 2015 after his initial retirement from the sport in 2001. In March, Ruddock shocked favoured Raymond Olubowale via fifth round knockout to get the comeback ball rolling and his win Friday will seemingly ensure more fights to come this year.

Dirrell and DeGale on weight for Saturday afternoon tilt!

By FightFan.com Staff (22-May-2015)

The measurements for tomorrow’s PBC headliners are almost identical. See how Andre Dirrell and James DeGale match up above … and then tune in and find out who wins a world title in Boston tomorrow afternoon as #PBConNBC airs at 430 ET/1:30 PT. Andre Dirrell and James DeGale have plenty in common: They’re both southpaws, both former Olympic medalists and each has but one loss on his record. Now, they’ll look to distinguish themselves from one another—as well as the rest of the competition in the 168-pound division—when they meet in a showdown of highly skilled and athletic fighters. Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) rebounded from a 21-month layoff due to neurological issues to earn three wins in 2014. In DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs), he’ll meet an accomplished technician who also racked up three victories last year. One of those winning streaks, however, will soon come to an end in this world championship bout.

Watch: Alexander Povetkin destroys Mike Perez in Round 1!

By Ace Freeman (22-May-2015)

Alexander Povetkin KO 1 Mike Perez: Big punching Alexander Povetkin (29-1, 21 KOs) scored a stunning first round knockout of normally durable Irish based Cuban slickster Mike Perez (21-2, 13 KOs) moments ago in Moscow, Russia. It was a huge right hand that cracked Perez and sent him down separated from his senses. He bravely beat the count but was quickly sent down a second time and the bout was waved off post haste. The win puts Povetkin back in the mix for the heavyweight title as the bout was a WBC eliminator and the Russian charge is now the mandatory challenger for reigning titleist Deontay Wilder.
