“I’m very proud of my performance against Ponomarev,” explained Claggett. “I feel like the decision could have gone either way. Before I head back to the international stage, I need to take care of business here in Canada. I’m excited to be making my mandatory defense against Tebor. He’s been in with the nation’s best and is a former champ. His fights are always exciting, just like mine. Put us in a ring together and there will be fireworks! I think this could be one of the best fights Calgary has seen in a while.”

Carl Frampton defends title in Belfast stopping Avalos in 5!

By Ace Freeman (28-Feb-2015)

Carl Frampton TKO 5 Chris Avalos

The fighting pride of Northern Ireland, IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton (20-0, 14 KOs) defended his title moments ago in Belfast with a fifth round stoppage of mandatory challenger Chris Avalos (25-3, 19 KOs). The scrappy Frampton delighted hometown fans with a spirited effort in what was an entertaining scrap while it lasted. Avalos was game to engage despite being outgunned and it made for some good exchanges in the early going. The more the two engaged, the more the edge for Frampton was apparent and his attack was relentless. The damage was more pronounced with each passing round and in the fifth the referee had seen enough and rescued the challenger from the onslaught. The impressive win opens the door to higher profile fights for Frampton who always puts on an exciting show with his action style.

Tyson Fury stops Christian Hammer after Round 8!

By Ace Freeman (28-Feb-2015)

Tyson Fury TKO 8 Christian Hammer

Top heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) made easy work of unheralded Christian Hammer (17-4, 10 KOs) moments ago at the O2 Arena in London, England where he scored a somewhat anticlimactic stoppage after eight one-sided rounds. Fury boxed well from the outset utilizing a stiff jab and good foot movement for a big man. Switching between orthodox and southpaw, Fury seemed to bedazzle Hammer who struggled to overcome the range to land much of consequence. In the fifth round a beautiful right hand put Hammer on the deck but he collected himself well and fought on as Fury continued to pile up the rounds. Fury continued to use his quick hands and combination punching and after the eighth round came to a close Hammer’s corner elected to pull their man out of the one sided affair. With the win Fury retained his WBO International heavyweight title and now looks poised for a potential title shot against Wladimir Klitschko later this year.

Eubank Jr. halts previously unbeaten Chudinov in 12!

By Ace Freeman (28-Feb-2015)

Chris Eubank Jr. TKO 12 Dmitry Chudinov

Rising British middleweight Chris Eubank Jr (19-1, 14 KOs) captured the interim WBA World middleweight title moments ago in London, England with a bruising twelfth round stoppage of a very brave and previously unbeaten Dmitry Chudinov (14-1-2, 9 KOs). It was a rebound win for Eubank Jr. who suffered his first pro defeat in November in a narrow loss to Billy Joe Saunders. In Saturday’s bout, Eubank and Chudinov went toe to toe in the opening round and there were some early fireworks. It didn’t take long for Eubank’s speed and combination punching to take over and he cut the Russian in Round 2 and slowly but surely administer a sustained beating as the rounds went on. Chudinov absorbed a tremendous amount of punishment down the stretch and the damage to his face became increasingly pronounced with each round. In the twelfth and final round Eubank rained down what seemed like dozens of unanswered punches, battering a helpless but gallant Chudinov all over the ring. The referee’s judgement was called into question as he let the one sided action go on for what seemed like far too long. Finally at 2:11 of the final stanza he stepped in to halt the slaughter. It was an impressive outing for Eubank Jr. who now looks poised for bigger fights on the world stage in 2015.
