Reti is slated to face North Dakota’s Starr Roberts in a 160 pound contest, and for the young Albertan, leaving the headgear behind to fight as a professional is an opportunity he relishes and is fully prepared for.

“To me turning pro is like a fresh new start,” Reti told FightFan.com this week. “I feel like I’m starting over. My passion for the sport has never been stronger and I’m training harder than ever.

Pacquiao calls out Mayweather: “It’s time to say something… The fans deserve this fight and it’s time to make it happen!”

By Ace Freeman (23-Nov-2014)

Manny Pacquiao took the initiative Sunday morning in Macau, China during the post fight press conference for his wipe out of American Chris Algieri, to interrupt one of the tired questions he receives about fighting Floyd Mayweather on a daily basis. He cut off a reporter trying to ask him about a potential Mayweather fight, stood up, and said:

“It’s time to say something. The people deserve that [a Pacquiao-Mayweather] fight. The fans deserve that fight, and it’s time to make that fight happen. It’s been a long time that I’ve wanted it… – and right now I think the fight needs to happen because the fans deserve it.”

Pacquiao dominates a retreating Algieri, scoring six knockdowns on route to a shutout victory!

Manny Pacquiao had a tall order in front of him Saturday night at Cotai Arena, in Macau, China, but it wasn’t the sheer height of his 5’10 opponent Chris Algieri, it was the task of finding a fight. The Filipino superstar dominated the bout but had difficulty ending things on his own terms as the inexperienced American challenger seemed overwhelmed by the moment and completely reluctant to fight. After twelve one-sided rounds were complete that featured six knockdowns, Pacquiao was announced as the winner by virtual shut-out scores in front of the elated crowd in China.

Saturday results: Vargas, Bellew, Groves, DeGale, Shiming and Lomachenko all victorious in weekend action!

By Ace Freeman (22-Nov-2014)

Saturday action from around the boxing world!

In a good action fight, undefeated light welterweight champion Jessie Vargas (26-0, 9 KOs) defeated Antonio DeMarco (31-4-1, 23 KOs) in a twelve round fight by unanimous decision to retain his title. Vargas pulled ahead early, DeMarco rallied in the middle rounds but Vargas stood his ground late to seal the win. It was the first fight for Vargas with the legendary Roy Jones Jr. in his corner. Our good friend Russ Anber of Rival Boxing worked as cut-man for Vargas in the win.

In the co-featured bout in Macau, China, former Olympic Gold medalist Zou Shiming improved to 6-0 (1 KO) and kept his flyweight title with a unanimous decision win over Chonlatarn Onesongchaigym. Scores were 119-106 (2x) and 120-103.

Former amateur star, Olympic gold medalist and undefeated featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (3-1, 1 KO) scored a commanding twelve round decision win over Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (52-2, 33 KOs) despite suffering an injury to his left hand early in the bout. He impressively fought the majority of the bout with just his right hand.

In an eagerly awaited rematch, recent Adonis Stevenson-challenger Tony Bellew (22-2-1, 14 KOs) evened the score with former light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (28-1, 14 KOs), beating him via split decision in a cruiserweight fight. FightFan.com had Bellew pulling ahead late but when twelve rounds were complete Cleverly was ahead 115-114 on one card while two more reasonable tallies of 116-112 and 115-113 for Bellew were read.

Recent super middleweight world title challenger George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs) returned to action today in the UK where he shook off some rust to catch up with and stop Denis Douglin (17-4, 10 KOs) in Round 7 by TKO.

Undefeated heavyweight and former Olympic Gold medalist Anthony Joshua (10-0, 10 KOs) made quick work of well travelled Michael Sprott (42-23, 17 KOs) earlier Saturday evening, scoring a first round KO.

Fast rising super middleweight James ‘Chunky’ DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) looked fast and powerful scoring a third round TKO over Marco Antonio Periban (20-3-1, 13 KOs) earlier today in Britain.

Early quick results from Teofista Series 14 in Calgary!

By Ace Freeman (21-Nov-2014)

Quick results from Teofista Boxing Series 14 in Calgary, Canada!

In the co-main event of the evening, Williams Lake BC’s Stuart McLellan (12-0-3, 3 KOs) pounded out a commanding six round unanimous decision victory over Antonio Dos Santos by tallies of 60-54(x3) on all three official cards. McLellan looked poised and polished as he didn’t allow the normally spoiler-ish style of Dos Santos to deter him. He went to the body with aplomb and set up his attack to the head with patience. McLellan rocked Dos Santos several times in the third and fourth rounds and carried a lead late into the bout. Despite some awkward rough-housing in the closing rounds, McLellan closed the show in commanding fashion to seal the points victory.

The first big KO of the evening went to Teofista cruiserweight Jordan ‘The Hitman’ Smith who decked Edmonton’s Ty McDougall in Round 2 to score an emphatic KO victory! McDougall beat the count but the referee decided he’d seen enough and the bout was waived off at the :35 minute mark. With the win Smith moves to 2-0-1 (1 KO) as a professional.

Hard charging Alberta amateur sensation Connor ‘The Bomber’ Bush made his pro debut Friday night in Calgary, fighting to a spirited four round majority draw against eight fight veteran Devonte Donaldson of Los Angeles.

Calgary based welterweight Brett Enns (2-0, 0 KOs) defeated Maged Hammo (Pro debut) of Lethbridge, Alberta by four round split decision. (Scores were 40-36 twice for Enns and 39-37 for Hammo).

In the opening bout of the evening, Teofista Boxing’s own Roxie Lam (4-0, 3 KOs) won a unanimous four round decision over Quebec’s Michael Gargouri to kick things off in Calgary. Lam lead the way by being the consistent aggressor through out and administered a violent barrage to the body of his taller foe. Scores were 40-36 (x2) and 39-37.
