Canada’s Tony Luis disappointed in scoring of Mathews fight, will return to action June 26 on CBS!

By FightFan News Wire (21-Apr-2015)

Canadian lightweight Tony ‘Lightning’ Luis (19-3, 7 KOs) says he’s disappointed with the scoring of his controversial unanimous-decision loss last weekend to Derry Mathews (38-9-2, 20 KOs) for the interim WBA Lightweight title in Mathews’ hometown of Liverpool, England, but won’t let it deter him from his goals.

Despite taking the fight on three days’ notice, Luis seemed to outwork Mathews in most rounds and would probably be wearing a championship belt today, had the fight been contested on neutral ground. Unfortunately, the European judges saw it another way, scoring it 114-112 (Jean Legland, FRA), 115-112 (Dave Parris, UK) and 114-112 (Stefano Carozza, ITA), all for Mathews.

“I can’t say I feel good,” said Luis, home safely in Cornwall, Ontario. “This was my shot and I didn’t get the decision, but I know with my performance, I’ll get another one. Most of the press and the fans, especially in North America, know what’s up and saw the fight for what it really was. Derry did what he had to do to survive but not enough to win. He was cagey and made the fight look more competitive than it was, and that’s what a veteran is supposed to do.”

All action Polish light heavyweight Andrzej Fonfara (27-3, 16 KOs) stunned Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-2-1, 32 KOs) and the local crowd at the StubHub Center in Carson, California when he beat up and stopped the Mexican star in nine rounds. Chavez was moving up two divisions for the bout and Fonfara looked bigger, stronger and harder hitting from the outset. That was the difference as he continued to pound away at Chavez who looked zapped of energy by the midway point. The ‘Son of a Legend’ showed a ton of heart to stand in there and even got up and rallied from a ninth round knock down, but he retired on his stool at the end of the stanza citing a leg injury. He looked thoroughly beaten at the time. Check out these photos from Big Joe Miranada / BigJoesPics.com!


Terence Crawford with another star-making performance dominating Thomas Dulorme to win 140-pound title!

By Ace Freeman (18-Apr-2015)

Terence Crawford TKO 6 Thomas Dulorme

Rising star Terence ‘Bud’ Crawford (26-0, 18 KOs) put on another star making performance Saturday night in Arlington, Texas where he ran top rated light welterweight contender Thomas Dulorme (22-1, 12 KOs) out of the ring via a sixth round TKO to capture the vacant WBO World super lightweight title. It is Crawford’s second world crown in as many divisions. Dulorme started fast using a piston like jab and fast hands to win a few rounds early. Crawford looked very poised and patient and for good reason. The Omaha native began coming on in the fourth and really started to find his timing. In Round 6 it was like Crawford decided to end things and he went after Dulorme. He decked his man once and never looked back scoring two more knock downs with a surgical precision to score the stoppage win. It was a statement win in the 140 pound division and another fight that shows Crawford is indeed one of the fastest rising talents in the sport.

Canada’s Tony Luis comes up short in world title bid dropping razor thin decision to Derry Mathews

By Ace Freeman (18-Apr-2015)

Derry Mathews W UD12 Tony Luis

Cornwall, Ontario’s Tony ‘Lightning’ Luis (19-3, 7 KOs) came up short in his late notice bid for the interim WBA World lightweight title when he found himself on the short end of a razor thin decision loss to England’s Derry Mathews (38-9 20 KOs) Saturday at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. Luis was the aggressor throughout and out-landed Mathews by a significant margin. Mathews’ success came from infrequent flush right hands timing Luis on the way in, but the Canadian spent the majority of the fight pressing his man to the ropes were he scored with more frequency. Mathews lost a point for holding in Round 8 and Luis was also penalized for leading with his head / forearm. The late rounds were close but Luis had a late rally to take the twelfth. Scores were read as 115-112 and 114-112(x2) for Mathews who captured the interim WBA world 135-pound title with the win. FightFan.com had the bout 114-112 for Luis.
