Welterweight Paredes stops Ramos; Heavyweight Ortiz stops Lyons at Hard Rock in Hollywood FL

Welterweight Ed “The Lion” Paredes 27-3-3(16KO) fought off a very tough and ready Juliano Ramos 16-5(13KO) who came after Paredes the entire fight.  Ramos started very strong pressuring the taller Paredes and landing some very nice inside shots while Paredes touched the Brazilian from the outside.  Ramos stuck to his game plan nicely for the opening  few rounds pushing Paredes back and making the rangy brawler fight going backwards.

Paredes adjusted and started to create distance landing cleaner punches midway during round three which slowed Ramos down and turned the early momentuem into his direction.  Ramos slowed as the fight wore on and Paredes  got stronger landing bigger shots wearing the tough and tested Ramos down.  Regardless Ramos stalked The Lion down looking to get inside but the sharp punching Paredes did his damage breaking his Brazilian counterpart down until a big right hand in the eight dropped Ramos, who got up slowly and staggered just enough to have Telis Assimenios wisely wrap him up and wave him into safety at 2:07 of the eighth.

WBC’s #8 ranked lightweight Richard Abril 16-2(8KO) dropped and stopped Sergio Rivera 25-8(16KO) fighting out of Mexico, with a big right hand to the body in the fifth round.  The punch was initially called low however Rivera refused to continue.  The blow was very suspect as far as being low and it would look like Rivera took an early siesta on a good body shot. Abril set the pace early with a steady diet of jabs and straight right hands and outclassed the tough Mexican showing superior hand speed and landing at a high percentage.   The fight was called a TKO 1:28 in the fifth round.  Abril has his sights set on WBA Champion Brandon Rios and hopes to soon see him on the other side of the ring.

Heavyweight prospect Luis “El Mercedes” Ortiz 13-0 (11KO) took the TKO win over Arron Lyons 12-11(9KO) from Mississippi.  Ortiz clobbered and bloodied Lyons throughout the fight with thunderous shots and impressive speed, all while quickly maturing in the professional ring. While taking a nasty beating, Lyons was able to land a few shots but none seemed to faze the former world amateur champion Ortiz who had 381 fights before entering the pro ranks.  It will be interesting to see how Ortiz would do with the top of ranks which he should be ready for in a few fights of tougher opponents.   Ortiz looked sharp but may need to work on turning his punches over a little more as many of his power shots were somewhat palming the inferior opponent.  Ortiz, who is working at fast tracking his way to the top of the heavyweight ranks, holds both the WBA Federation and the WBC FECARBOX titles which were not on the line tonight.  Lyons was cut badly early in the fight and by the end of the seventh the ringside physician had advised the fight to be stopped. In the end Ortiz did his job and disposed of the tough but outclassed Lyons.

In a 105 lb hotly contested bout among a raucous crowd Carlos “el Chocorritonito Buitrago 20-0 (15KO’s) squared up against a fiery Mexican fighter Felipe Riveras 9-9(4KO).  The first round were “choc” full of good exchanges and jeers from the crowd with both men getting in some nice shots to oohs and ahhs of the Nicaraguan and Mexican fans. The second round was more of the same with both men getting off some great shots with an extra dose of showmanship from Rivas before the end of the round. Third round was more of Riva getting off the better and cleaner power shots. The 4th ended up with more of the same all Rivas. The 5th round there was a shift in the momentum with Buitrago starting to get off the cleaner shots with Rivas doing more of the Ali shuffle then boxing. The 6th round showed a clear shift in the action with the Nicaraguan starting to dictate the action and dominate the fight. The 7th and 8th rounds gave the crowd a little less action with Buitrago and Rivas going back and forth equally with not man winning the rounds in spectacular fashion.  The ninth and tenth rounds gave us more  back and forth leaving a nail biting decision for the crowd to wait on.

Lightweight Yoelvis Gamboa 7-0(3KO), the younger brother of WBA and IBF Featherweight World Champion Yorkies Gamboa was successful in stopping iron chinned and clearly out matched Larry Yanez 2-3.  Referee Frank Gentile stepped in and saved Yanez at 1:54 of the fourth round.  This fight could have easily been stopped a stanza earlier.

In a youth vs. age bout Super Bantamweight Cuban amateur star Yoandris Salinas 16-1(7KO) pressured veteran fighter Felipe Almanza 18-27(9KO) from the opening bell and controlled the entire fight with commanding ring generalship and aggression.   Salinas was relentless and landing big shots on the Colombian Almanza and in the 3rd the Cuban landed a vicious left hook right hand the floored Almanza who was unable to reach his feet at the count of ten.  The end came at 2:35.

Vintage Boxing:Rocky Marciano vs. Jersey Joe Walcott

Rocky Marciano vs. Jersey Joe Walcott

“If I lose I deserve to have my name taken out of the record books,” Walcott sneered.
Jersey Joe Walcott won the heavyweight title in 1951 at the ripe old age of 37. Walcott was a smooth, slick, superb boxer, the ultimate fistic cutie. Walcott’s opponent in the second defense of his crown was his polar opposite. Rocky Marciano was a clumsy, awkward slugger who started boxing after a failed career in minor league ball. “Marciano is an amateur,” Walcott sneered. “If I lose I deserve to have my name taken out of the record books.” The two men met in Philadelphia’s Municipal Stadium on Sept. 23, 1952. The champ was making the challenger look like a fool, but then, half a minute into the 13th round, Marciano’s “Suzie Q” performed her magic…

GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS SIGNS EXCITING KNOCKOUT ARTIST ALFREDO ANGULO

LOS ANGELES, August 11 – One of the most exciting fighters in the sport of boxing today, Alfredo “El Perro” Angulo has an aggressive style and knockout power that has made him a must-see competitor for years. Now, Angulo will continue his attack on the junior middleweight division as a member of the Golden Boy Promotions team, and the Mexican warrior has just one goal in mind…to win a world championship.

“I always want to give the fans a great show and I work hard to get to my goal of retiring as a world champion,” said Angulo, a former interim WBO and WBC Continental Americas junior middleweight champion. “I believe Golden Boy Promotions is the right company to further my career and achieve my goals in boxing. I can’t wait to become Golden Boy’s next world champion.”

“There are a handful of fighters who always deliver excitement whenever they’re in the ring and Alfredo Angulo is certainly one of those select few,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “Alfredo has already accomplished a lot in this sport, but at 29, there’s much left for him to accomplish and we’re going to be with him every step of the way as he moves from being a star to being a superstar.”

A native of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, Alfredo Angulo (19-1, 16 KO’s) is a 2004 Mexican Olympian who took the professional game by storm as soon as he debuted in 2005. A devastating puncher whose relentless pressure has seen him break the likes of Ricardo Cortes, Richard Gutierrez, Andrey Tsurkan and Cosme Rivera over the course of his six-year career. Angulo rebounded from the lone loss of his career via decision to Kermit Cintron in 2009 to win the interim WBO World Title just two fights later against then-unbeaten Harry Joe Yorgey. In 2010, Angulo continued to show his world-class talent with knockouts of Joel Julio and Joachim Alcine. Following Angulo reaching a settlement with his prior promoter Gary Shaw Productions, he is ready to resume his quest to rule the junior middleweight division with Golden Boy Promotions in his corner.

A date and opponent for Angulo’s Golden Boy Promotions debut will be announced shortly. For more information, visit http://www.goldenboypromotions.com; follow us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/GoldenBoyBoxing or visit us on Facebook at Golden Boy Facebook Page.
