After a brief flourish from Zenunaj at the start of the second Cancio took over and won that round and the third and built a good lead. However Zenunaj just kept coming and slowly increased the pressure.
The ninth saw plenty of furious exchanges with Cancio taking the round. Zenunaj was on top of Cancio in the last but needed a knockout and that never came. Scores twice and There was no doubt about the winner but it looked closer than the first two scores indicate. He took out and this is his second win this year.
Kosovon-born Zenunaj was based in Belgium and won the Belgian featherweight title. He now does his fighting mostly in the USA and is in some tough tests over the past year. In this case Kamegai seemed to lack some of his past fire and made a slow start.Legendary Boxing Highlights: Klitschko vs Pulev
When he did get rolling Vendetti was more than equal to the task. Vendetti was busier and more accurate and he matched Kamegai punch for punch when they traded. Kamegai landed some hard body shots but Vendetti never wilted and fired back with body punches of his own and was a good winner. Scores twice and all for Vendetti. This was only the second fight outside of the New England area for Vendetti and his opposition had been passable at best but this is his sixteenth win in a row and he should creep into the rating on the basis of this performance.
Kamegai, the WBA No 14, has been in some wars and at 35 that looks to be catching up on him. Now 45 former WBA welter and super welter champion Rivera returned to the ring with a win. Smith was no kind of test but he did hang around long enough to give Rivera some rounds of work. It took a while for Rivera to shed seven years of rust but his work to the ribs broke Smith down and one body punch too many saw Smith turning away in agony and the referee stepped in to end the punishment.
Rivera had won his last three fights when he quit the ring in July and after this win it is likely he will continue his comeback. Poor Smith is now in his last 34 fights.
Chaves Home town fighter Gray ended this one in quick time. He hunted down Fernandez before putting him down with a right.
Fernandez struggled to his feet before the ten count but the referee stopped the fight. Ruiz had more power but southpaw Pichardo comes to fight and although he had to soak up punishment all the way he stayed to the end.
Ruiz came close to victory in the sixth. He landed a good combination and then floored Pichardo with a straight right. Pichardo beat the count but was floored again this time by a fearsome left hook. He went down heavily but somehow made it his feet and survived. Ruiz rocked Pichardo again in the ninth but the gutsy Dominican was still there at the final bell. Scoresand for Ruiz. He has won his last eight fights. Pichardo is rarely in a bad fight but he is now in his last 6 fights.
The challenger made a fast start taking the fight to the much taller Shimizu landing well to the body and reddening the area around the right eye of Shimizu. In the fourth a blistering left from Shimizu put Kawamura down and the fight was stopped. Shimizu, now 32, was an elite level amateur and did not turn pro until he was He competed at the Olympics and in London in beat Isaac Dogboe but had to settle for a bronze medal after losing to Luke Campbell in the semi-finals.
He also represented Japan at the, and world championships and had over amateur fights. He is already rated IBF 6 4.
WBC 6 and the plan is to have him fighting for a world title in late Mukai Yaegashi keeps alive his hope of becoming a four division champion with stoppage of Mukai.
This one was a war. Mukai had height and reach over Yaegashi and made good use of those advantages in the first round. Yaegashi was getting past the jab in the second and scoring with hot body punches. Mukai fought back hard in the third and fourth trying to keep Yaegashi outside and he scored with some hefty body punches in the fifth. It was torrid stuff in the sixth with Mukai scoring with a bunch of punches only for Yaegashi to punctuate a stirring round with a right that had Mukai floundering.
Yaegashi jumped on Mukai in the seventh driving him to the ropes bombarding Mukai with punches until the referee stepped in to save Mukai. Garcia Dominican puncher Vicente blows away Mexican Garcia inside two rounds.
In the first Vicente was letting Garcia lead and then countering him with left hooks. Garcia scored with some left hooks of his own. Vicente was warned for a left hook that went low but it was still his punch of choice. Vicente trapped Garcia in a corner at the start of the second only for Garcia to punch his way out into the centre of the ring. Vicente then launched a ferocious attack scoring with hooks and uppercuts from both hands finally landing a left hook to the body that dropped Garcia to his knees.
He was up at nine but had lost his mouthguard and got some relief whilst that that was replaced. When the action resumed Vicente landed a couple of hard rights and then a right cross that put Garcia on his back and he was counted out. He was at the start of his career before consecutive losses in to Juan Antonio Rodriguez and Eric Hunter. Ne genteel introduction here as these two went toe-to-toe from the first bell.
Neither seemed to have heard of defence and Soto was blasting shots to head and body with Escudero somehow absorbing them and landing some heavy rights of his own. That was the pattern of the fight and the only change was that gradually the power of Soto gave him domination. Escudero was taking a beating and his work rate dropped but he refused to cave in and refused to go on the defensive so they were trading punches for three minutes of every round.
Something had to give. Either Soto would punch himself out or Escudero would crumble. Finally in the sixth with Escudero on the ropes Soto landed a whole series of head punches and the referee had seen enough and stopped the fight over protests from Escudero.
Colombian Soto gets back to winning ways after being knocked out in nine rounds by former world title challenger Cesar Juarez in April. Panamanian Escudero loses inside the distance for the second time in a row. Marriaga Walters must have missed the read through of the script because he was not expected or intended to win this one.
Marriaga is a former star amateur of whom big things were expected. He did not just lose; he was outclassed by the very ordinary Walters. The writing was on the wall from the fourth when Walters put Marriaga on the deck but really Marriaga had never looked like winning in a poor fight spoilt by too many clinches. Scores twice and all for Walters. The Panamanian was in his previous five fight s all against modest local opposition with two of the losses being first round knockouts and the other a second round knockout.
Colombian Marriaga a former Colombian amateur champion who competed at the Olympics was a big disappointment in his first fight outside Colombia. Pianeta Fury gets in useful ten rounds in easy win over Pianeta. Fury was much too mobile for Pianeta. Pianeta had occasional success when he could catch Fury on the ropes but they were morsels that Fury kindly fed to him. Pianeta tried standing back and beckoning for Tyson to come to him but Tyson preferred to be the one to choose the tactics and just stayed outside scoring with his fast jabs.
Initially he was not loading up on his punches but he let some heavy shots go just before the bell.

The fight was too one-sided to be entertaining but that was not the purpose of the fight. It was to get Fury ten rounds of much needed work. The big man showed he still has the speed and mobility that took him to the top. It appears that he will now fight Deontay Wilder in the US which will be a tremendous fight. Whether the two fights Tyson has had since returning have prepared him for someone as quick and dangerous as Wilder is questionable. Pianeta was never meant to be a threat to Fury.
Collins Ward outboxes Collins in what promised to be an explosive fight. It did not really reach those heights but it was entertaining. Although their pro experience seems similar Ward had a long and successful time as an amateur whereas Collins, the son of former WBO middleweight and super middleweight champion Steve Senior, turned pro with no amateur experience.
That additional experience gave Ward the edge. Ward generally controlled the action landing some big head punches and piling up the points. There was a moment of danger in the sixth when a right from Collins rocked Ward but he got through that minor crisis and supplied a strong finish to take the decision. Collins lost to Paddy McDonagh in June last year down at light heavy but has now moved up to cruiser.
Keeler got some useful rounds of work here as Grant stayed the full distance. Keeler put Grant down in the fifth but the fighter from the West Midlands showed real grit in getting up and taking Keeler the distance and doing well enough to take a round.
Grant was a late substitute. Ellison McCullough makes it three wins on the bounce as he decisions Ellison in an entertaining contest. Ellison did enough to keep it close over the first three rounds but McCullough took over from there. Ellison stayed competitive but was outworked and McCullough was a good winner. The year-old from Belfast is in his last ten fights with the losses coming at featherweight against Isaac Lowe for the Commonwealth title and Ryan Walsh for the British.
Now he is trying his luck at super feather. Four losses in his last 5 fights for Ellison. Maxwell was British and English Champion as an amateur. In the amateurs he scored a win over Albert Selimov, the only fighter to beat Vasyl Lomachenko in the amateurs. Cummings was handing out heavy punishment all the way. Jenman was too busy defending to do much attacking but he showed some good defensive work. Cummings stepped-up the pressure for round after round but Jenman did not cave in and lasted the distance.
McCauley Impressive first showing for former elite amateur Donnelly. He dominated the fight against the experienced McCauley showing style and power. He had McCauley hurt in the second and the third but McCauley fought hard in the fourth to last the distance. Durable survivor McCauley, 38, has lost his last 18 fights but only twelve of his losses have come inside the distance. His next fight will be No for him and that should come early next month as he has three fights scheduled for the next eight weeks.
Weekly boxing results round up: Bryant Jennings stops Dimitrenko and much more - Boxing News
Mora Yet another top amateur turning pro as McComb registers a win. The tall southpaw just punched too hard for gutsy Mora. McComb was firing a whole series of lightning quick punches from the start. He was adding lots of power to that speedy and Mora had to absorb some corrosive uppercuts and body punches. One to follow for sure. Dimitrenko Both fighters opened cautiously with very little action of any consequence over the first three rounds.
Dimitrenko had height and reach over Jennings but Jennings was much quicker. Dimitrenko tried to keep Jennings out with his long jabs but Jennings was slick enough with his jab his jab to overcome the difference in reach. They both scored their first real power punches in the third and in the fourth a right to the side of the head put Jennings down. He made it to his feet and to the bell without any further trouble. From the fifth the mobility and speed of Jennings turned the fight strongly his way.
Dimitrenko is a one-paced fighter and that pace is slow. An already slow Dimitrenko began to slow even more. Jennings was firing combinations with Dimitrenko floundering when his jab was not giving him any control in the fight. As Dimitrenko tired Jennings upped his pace and the fight became one-way traffic. In the eighth Jennings shook the Ukrainian with a left hook and then landed a succession of punches that put Dimitrenko down. Dimitrenko was hurt and exhausted and in the ninth as they worked inside a big right uppercut sent Dimitrenko down.
The referee immediately waived the fight off with Dimitrenko protesting the stoppage. Good win for the year-old from Philadelphia. Wins over unbeaten fighters Artur Szpilka and Mike Perez took Jennings to a title shot in but he lost a wide decision to Wlad Klitschko and later in the year he was stopped by Luis Ortiz.
At 36 Dimitrenko has nowhere to go really. He has lost important fights to Eddie Chambers, Kubrat Pulev and Joseph Parker and is likely to become a test for climbing young fighters. In his last fight before this one curiously he drew but won. He was held to a draw by unbeaten Miljan Rovcanin but Rovcanin lost three points for fouls and under the German BDB rules for suffering three points deductions he was disqualified with the result changed to a win for Dimitrenko!
Gavronski did better in the second but again it was Hart doing the heavier scoring. In the third a downward chopping right floored Gavronski. He was up quickly but after the eight count was over Hart strode forward and dropped Gavronski with a couple of left hooks. Gavronski made it his feet but was on very shaky legs and the fight was stopped.
Blanco It is a case of back to the future for Sosa as he returns to action with a win which he hopes will be the first step on the way to a future chance at another title.
Sosa found Blanco a handful but was picking up the points and the rounds. He came close to making the judges superfluous. He floored Blanco early in the eighth and again late in the round but Blanco survived. Scoresand for Sosa. The year-old from New Jersey came out of nowhere to hold Nicholas Walters to a draw and then climbed off the floor to beat Javier Fortuna to win the secondary WBA super feather title. He made an impressive defence by outpointing Steve Smith in November but had a bad being stopped in nine rounds by Vasyl Lomachenko in a challenge for the WBO title and losing a majority verdict to Yuriorkis Gamboa.
He is No 9 win the WBC so could work his way to a title chance. Puerto Rican-based Blanco was having his first fight in 17 months and is now in his last 4 fights.
Ruiz Stevenson boxes his way to victory. The talented youngster made a measured start over the first two rounds.
He was content to let Ruiz come forward and make him pay by landing hard and accurate counters. Ruiz kept pressing but in each round he was getting buzzed by southpaw lefts from Stevenson. The pattern changed very little and Ruiz lacked either the power or the craft to be competitive as Stevenson eased his way to victory.
All three judges has Stevenson winning It was not a sparkling performance but it is understood that Stevenson injured his right hand in the second round so was boxing with a handicap-you might say. The year-old Olympian from Newark has a court case in Florida pending but irrespective of the outcome will probably need a bit of time off to let the hand heal.
Mexican Ruiz gave Hozumi Hasegawa a hard fight back in but is since then. Gallo Carto keeps the family flag flying high as he outpoints experienced Mexican Gallo. Carto dominated the fight jolting and jarring Gallo with straight rights and left hooks. Gallo stood up to the punishment but he took a solid beating and did well to stay on his feet at times, Scoresand Carto must be wondering where he left his punch.
The year-old Philadelphian comes from a fighting family. His late Uncle Frankie packed 56 fights into a five year career ending with a record against world class opposition such as Billy Graham, Chalky Wright, Lulu Costantino and Phil Terranova. Uncle Nunzio was in a short pro career. He was finding the target over the first three rounds with Strode getting warnings for low punches in the second and third. LaManna took the fourth with some fierce hooks and Strode went down in the fifth.
It was questionable but the referee gave Strode a count. Strode managed to have some success when he could drag LaManna into a brawl but was outboxed and outlanded over the sixth and seventh. Scores on all three cards for LaManna. Strode had a run of four losses in a row with tough opposition such as Mike Alvarado and Jose Benavidez but had outpointed veteran Dennis Sharpe in May. Gibson Montreal-based Ukrainian Teslenko wins unanimous decision over Gibson. Teslenko had Gibson on the floor in the first but it was a questionable knockdown.
The Ukrainian continued to get the better of the exchanges with crafty Gibson doing enough to make some of the rounds close but it was a dull fight with Gibson getting away with too much holding.
Teslenko put in a big effort over the last two rounds trying for an inside the distance win but Gibson was never in any real danger. Scoresand for Teslenko. Mauras Teenage sensation Adorno blows away poor Mauras in 99 seconds. He floored Mauras with a volley of punches and although Mauras beat the count he was being rocked by more shots as the referee jumped in to stop the fight.
The opposition has been distinctly inferior at this time but he has wiped them all out with real power. Mauras now in his last 7 fights Los Mochis, Mexico: Nunez Cuadras gets a technical decision over Nunez after suffering cuts over both eyes.
A lively opening round saw Cuadras getting the better of the exchanges landing a series of left hooks and getting his punches off first. Nunez piled on the pressure in the second. He had Cuadras on the retreat under a hail of hooks and uppercuts with Cuadras looking uneasy at times. Cuadras banged back before the bell shaking Nunez twice with rights. Nunez kept up the pressure in the third with Cuadras landing some good rights but being outworked.
A clash of heads opened a bad cut over the right eye of Cuadras and Nunez seemed to have edged the round. Cuadras class began to tell over the fourth and fifth. Cuadras continued that success into the sixth landing some hard counter rights with Nunez too often swishing air as Cuadras slipped his punches. A clash heads just before the bell saw Cuadras cut over his left eye and the cut over his right eye was bleeding heavily.
Both fighters could see that the cuts were too bad for the fight to go much longer so they came out throwing punches in the seventh.
Both landed with hurtful shots but the quality punches were coming from Cuadras. At the end of the round it was ruled that the cuts were too bad for Cuadras to continue so it was decided on the score cards with Cuadras in front twice and Nunez proved a handful for the former champion.
Herrera Local hero Felix returns to his home town for the first time in seven years and gets a needed victory but has to fight much harder than expected for it. He rebounded with eight wins in a row but lost to Jonathan Maicelo in and to Marcos Villasana in April this year.
Valenzuela Olympian Romero made good use of his physical advantages and greater experience and won every round against Valenzuela with all three judges scoring it for Romero. He has impressive amateur achievements including being Mexican champion, winning a bronze at the Central American and Caribbean Games and competing at the World Junior and Senior Championships, the Pan American Games and the Olympics.
Valenzuela not really in with a chance here as he gets his fourth loss in a row. Akhmedov climbs off the floor to beat Barroso. In a fierce battle between two hard punching southpaws Akhmedov found himself on the canvas in third after being caught by a hard left from Barroso. He was badly shaken but had recovered enough to take the fight to Barroso by the end of the round. From there he made adjustments and took the fight inside. He outworked the dangerous former interim WBA champion and built a winning lead.
He ended the fight in the ninth with a left to the body that dropped Barroso to his knees and the Venezuelan was counted out. Career from —[ edit ] Pulev vs. Dimitrenko, Ustinov[ edit ] Pulev got his first title opportunity when it was announced in March he would fight Alexander Dimitrenko21 KOs on the Marco Huck vs. He also moved well on his feet to avoid punishment. In round 4, Pulev began to find his range and began countering and landing some power punch combinations of his own, rocking Dimitrenko at times.
Pulev's punches were much more effective than his opponents. Dimitrenko looked faded as he entered round Pulev landed a jab which slowly dropped Dimitrenko to a knee. At this point, he had taken a lot of punishment and remained down. Ustinov vacated the title and the EBU confirmed he would be included in September's rankings.
The fight was also set to be an IBF eliminator. Pulev dominated the fight from the opening bell working well behind his jab and landing the harder shots.
