    Khan beats Barrera on cut!

    By Alexey Sukachev

    In a WBO lightweight eliminator, 2004 Olympic silver medalist Amir Khan (20-1, 15 KOs) won a five round technical decision over legendary “Baby Faced Assassin” and former three-division world champion Marco Antonio Barrera (65-7, 42 KOs) on Saturday night at the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England. In round one, Barrera suffered a deep gash on the hairline from an unintentional headbutt that bled into his left eye from that point on. Khan was faster and very sharp, often punishing the bloodied Barrera on the ropes. Barrera had some moments too, but Khan was in command for the rounds contested. Doctors looked at the cut in the fourth, but the bout was not stopped at that point (which would have resulted in a no decision). The bout was stopped because of the cut during the following round, sending the verdict to the scorecards, which read 50-44, 50-45, 50-45 for Khan.

    David Martin Warr/Don King Productions
    Chew on this: Amir Khan proved too strong for Marco Antonio Barrera.


    A roundup of the past week's notable boxing results from around the world:


    Saturday at Manchester, England
    Lightweight
    Amir Khan Tech. Dec. 5 Marco Antonio Barrera
    Scores: 50-44, 50-45 (twice)
    Records: Khan, 20-1, 15 KOs; Barrera, 65-7, 43 KOs


    Rafael's remark: It was make or break for Khan and the kid delivered, albeit Barrera certainly was at a huge disadvantage because of a messy, gaping cut he suffered near his hairline from an accidental head clash in the opening round.



    But cut aside, Khan did what he needed to do and he did it well. He hammered the smaller Barrera, showed a vastly improved defense -- you had to love how he held his hands nice and high -- in his second fight with trainer Freddie Roach and showed that he just might be able to indeed reach his potential.



    Khan won a 2004 Olympic silver medal and became an overnight sensation in his native England. He was expected to storm his way to a world title in the pros and promoter Frank Warren was moving him quickly when he ran into unheralded Breidis Prescott in September and was blown out in 54 seconds. It was a shocking loss and Khan's future was called into question. Although he rebounded in December against Oisin Fagan, he was a soft opponent and Khan took him out in two rounds. There's a big difference between Fagan and Barrera, a future Hall of Famer, a three division champion, a longtime pound-for-pound entrant and simply one of the greatest fighters of this generation. Even though he is 35 and clearly on the downside of his career fighting a much bigger man, how could anyone count Barrera out, especially after seeing the replay over and over of Prescott destroying Khan so easily? That is why this was a fascinating fight and so unexpected when it was made.



    But Khan's youth -- he's still only 22 -- size and obvious power and speed advantages were evident in the first round. It seemed like every time he touched Barrera, the shot rattled him. Then they smashed heads and Barrera wound up with the terrible cut. The blood poured down Barrera's face for the remainder of the fight. Between rounds, his corner would clean him up but within a few seconds of the next round beginning, his face was again covered in a mask of red and blood was trickling into his left eye. It was not a fight for those with a queasy stomach. But Barrera, one of the great warriors of our time, kept on trucking and trying to make the best of it even though the fight could have easily been stopped -- frankly, should have been stopped -- at any time in the first four rounds, which would have resulted in a no contest.



    The doctor looked at the wound during the fourth round, but the fight continued. It wasn't until the fight was official in the next round that the bout was stopped and sent to the scorecards, where the verdict was obvious: Khan had thoroughly dominated every round for the unanimous decision. While Khan looked very good, you do have to wonder what would have been had Barrera not been handicapped by the brutal gash. And you also have to be concerned about the obvious home cooking for Khan that the fight would not be stopped until the fifth round had started so Khan would win rather than get a no contest. Khan got his desperately needed win, but because of the circumstances of the loss, Barrera probably will go on with his career and get some sort of other notable fight because he fought bravely under heavy duress.





    Cruiserweight
    Ola Afolabi TKO 9 Enzo Maccarinelli
    Wins a vacant interim cruiserweight title
    Records: Afolabi, 14-1-3, 6 KOs; Maccarinelli, 29-3, 22 KOs


    Rafael's remark: This was an exciting fight and Afolabi ended it in style, knocking the glass-chinned Maccarinelli out with a nice right hand to claim an interim belt. The Enzo Calzaghe-trained Maccarinelli, 28, of Wales, was trying to win a second belt. He had been destroyed in two rounds by David Haye in their March 2008 unification bout and then rebounded with an easy second-round knockout of Mathew Ellis in December. That set the stage for this bout, which was originally supposed to come against Johnathon Banks in December. But Banks pulled out with an ankle injury and then, instead of rescheduling, opted to face Tomasz Adamek for his belt in February and got knocked out. Banks' decision left an opening for Afolabi, a big underdog, and he took advantage of it. The London-born, California-based Afolabi, 29, hurt Maccarinelli in the third, survived some rocky moments in the middle of the fight and then turned out the lights in the ninth. He landed a flush right hand that deposited Maccarinelli flat on his back. Although he made it to his feet, Maccarinelli was all over the place and the fight was called off. Now, Afolabi, as interim beltholder, is supposed to face titleholder Victor Emilio Ramirez, but let's see if the WBO pushes the issue. Maccarinelli's brief time near the top of the division is likely over. He just can't take a solid punch without crumbling.




    Junior lightweight
    Roman Martinez TKO4 Nicky Cook
    Wins a junior lightweight title
    Records: Martinez, 22-0-1, 13 KOs; Cook, 29-2, 16 KOs


    Rafael's remark: What a fun, exciting fight this one was as Martinez and Cook traded hard shots before the explosive end. England's Cook, 29, had the crowd behind him and seemed in control when he rocked Puerto Rico's Martinez, 26, with a hook in the second round. The blow sent Martinez to a squatting position, like a catcher in baseball, but he apparently didn't touch the canvas, so it was not ruled a knockdown. But Cook certainly buzzed him. Fast forward to the fourth round, when Martinez came storming back. He landed a thunderous left uppercut that dropped and badly hurt Cook. He barely beat the count, although referee Dave Parris certainly could have stopped the fight. However, Parris gave Cook a chance to continue. Moments later, Martinez landed a flush left and dropped Cook again. This time, although Cook made it to his feet, he was in bad shape and Parris called it off. Cook's title reign was brief. He won the belt from Alex Arthur in September before losing it in his first defense. Cook's only other defeat came in July 2007, when Steven Luevano knocked him out with body shots in the 11th round of a fight for a vacant featherweight belt.







    Saturday at Kiel, Germany
    Middleweight
    Arthur Abraham W12 Lajuan Simon
    Retains a middleweight title
    Scores: 118-109, 117-110 (twice)
    Records: Abraham, 29-0, 23 KOs; Simon, 21-1-2, 12 KOs


    Rafael's remark: Middleweight world champion Kelly Pavlik and German titlist Abraham need to fight each other already, instead of taking pointless fights that excite so few. Pavlik did it in February when he fought Marco Antonio Rubio, a decent contender, but nobody good enough to set anyone on fire other than the Pavlik faithful in Youngstown, Ohio. This month it was Abraham's turn to face undeserving Simon, 30, of Philadelphia, who had never even faced (much less beaten) anyone of remote note to qualify for a title bout. And as expected, Abraham, 29, of Germany, rolled over the unqualified challenger, knocking him down in the third round and claiming a lopsided decision in his ninth title defense. Yawn. Abraham and his team say they want Pavlik. The Pavlik team and promoter Top Rank talk about Abraham in less definitive terms. But there is no reason the fight shouldn't happen this year. Abraham says if he can't get Pavlik, he'll move to super middleweight, especially since he is having more and more of a difficult time making 160 pounds. But as long as Pavlik and Abraham are at middleweight, they need to fight each other. The rest of the field is extremely weak, and don't even say Felix Sturm because he and his team are way too conservative to even consider either man in a serious way.





    Heavyweight
    Lamon Brewster W8 Michael Sprott
    scores: 79-73, 78-73 (twice)
    Records: Brewster, 35-4, 30 KOs; Sprott, 31-13, 16 KOs


    Rafael's remark: Former heavyweight titleholder Brewster continued his comeback from eye injuries and back-to-back punishing losses. In 2006, he lost his belt to Sergei Liakhovich in a grueling battle that was the heavyweight fight of the year. Brewster returned 15 months later, in July 2007, for a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, who smashed him over six lopsided rounds to avenge a previous knockout loss. After a 13-month layoff, Brewster, 35, made another comeback last summer. This was his second win in a row since returning and first since signing with German promoter Sauerland Event. Brewster, who says he is injury-free for the first time since 2000, scored the only knockdown of the fight when he floored England's Sprott, 34, with a left hook and follow-up right near the end of the third round. Considering Brewster is on the comeback trail, facing Sprott seemed reasonable. Sprott knocked Audley Harrison out with one punch in February 2007, although Sprott has now lost three of his past four bouts (all by decision).






    Saturday at Mexicali, Mexico
    Junior flyweight
    Giovani Segura TKO4 Cesar Canchila
    Wins an interim junior flyweight title
    Records: Segura, 20-1-1, 16 KOs; Canchila (27-2, 21 KOs


    Rafael's remark: This past July, Canchila beat Segura via decision to win a vacant interim belt on the Antonio Margarito-Miguel Cotto undercard in Las Vegas. It was a terrific action fight, but because the main event was so sensational, Canchila-Segura was sort of lost in the shuffle. Meeting in an immediate rematch on Azteca America in a fight that had been scheduled and rescheduled numerous times, they went at it again with ferocity in a slugfest. But it was Segura, 26, of Mexico, who overwhelmed Canchila, 27, of Columbia in a fast-paced fight. Segura came out guns blazing in the first round, dropping Canchila and pounding him around the ring. Referee Julio Alvarado certainly would have been within his rights to stop the fight after the hard knockdown, but he let it go. Segura knocked Canchila down again with a massive overhand left in the final 30 seconds of the second round and hammered him in the third, a round to think about when you compile your round of the year nominees at the end of 2009. Canchila, however, was throwing enough back to stay in the fight and keep things interesting. Segura was hammering him some more at the end of the fourth when the bell rang, leading to an odd ending of the fight. Alvarado didn't step between them, apparently not hearing the bell. Neither fighter seemed to hear the bell either because the crowd was so loud. So Segura got in a few more shots before the referee realized the round was over and then took a few moments before he still stopped the fight, apparently because Canchila had taken so much punishment. Segura is a relentless fighter who is a joy to watch and Canchila has an enormous heart.





    Saturday at Torreon, Mexico
    Bantamweight
    Nehomar Cermeño W12 Cristian Mijares
    Wins a vacant interim bantamweight title
    Scores: 116-112, 115-113 Cermeño, 117-111 Mijares
    Records: Cermeño, 17-0, 10 KOs; Mijares, 36-5-2, 15 KOs


    Rafael's remark: What a difference four months can make. Last fall, Mijares was a unified junior bantamweight titleholder climbing up the top 10 pound-for-pound rankings. He was an emerging star on a tremendous run with notable victories against Jorge Arce, Katsushige Kawashima (twice), Jose Navarro and Alexander Munoz. Then he met Vic Darchinyan in a unification bout and had his head handed to him. Darchinyan dominated and knocked him out in the ninth round for the upset. Returning from that crushing loss, Mijares moved up to bantamweight to fight for an interim belt offered up by the increasingly absurd WBA. It did not go as planned for Mijares, who has now lost two bouts in a row as Venezuela's Cermeño, a 2000 Olympian, came to Mijares' turf in Mexico and pulled the split decision upset, a difficult task for a fighter on the road. Given Cermeño's amateur background, nice professional record and a victory against a name opponent, he's certainly a fighter to watch. As for Mijares, where does he go now?




    Saturday at Cincinnati
    Heavyweight
    Deontay Wilder TKO1 Richard Greene
    Records: Wilder, 3-0, 3 KOs; Greene, 1-2-1, 0 KOs


    Rafael's remark: Fighting for the second time in eight days, Wilder scored his second consecutive first-round stoppage. The 23-year-old U.S. Olympic bronze medalist, America's lone boxing medalist at the 2008 Beijing Games, didn't score any knockdowns but won when Greene failed to come out of his corner for the second round because of the facial damage Wilder inflicted in the opening frame. Co-manager Shelly Finkel told ESPN.com that Wilder's fourth fight probably will come on April 24 on an ESPN2 undercard in Chicago.





    Lightweight
    Adrien Broner W4 Eric Ricker
    Scores: 40-36 (three times)
    Records: Broner, 7-0, 5 KOs; Ricker, 1-2, 1 KO


    Rafael's remark: Broner, one of Golden Boy's most exciting prospects, met Ricker in a rematch after the odd ending to their first encounter. When they met in December, also in Broner's hometown of Cincinnati, Broner, 19, was dominating when he shoved Ricker off of him when he was trying to hold. Ricker wound up falling between the ropes and out of the ring and was unable to continue. Broner was disqualified but the ruling was overturned by Ohio officials and properly changed to a no contest. In the rematch, Broner hurt Ricker to the body in the opening round and dominated for the shutout decision victory. Manager Shelly Finkel told ESPN.com that Broner will return to action April 10 on an ESPN2 undercard in Tucson, Ariz.





    Saturday at Saransk, Mordovia
    Heavyweight
    Oleg Maskaev TKO1 Rich Boruff
    Records: Maskaev, 36-6, 27 KOs; Boruff, 17-3-1, 10 KOs

    Rafael's remark: By knocking out American journeyman Boruff, 37, who was stopped inside two rounds for the third consecutive fight, former titleholder Maskaev preserved his preposterous status as the mandatory challenger for the winner of the Vitali Klitschko-Juan Carlos Gomez heavyweight title bout on Saturday. Maskaev, 40, barely broke a sweat, drilling Boruff in 95 seconds. The fight didn't exactly register among fight fans in the United States, but in Mordovia, which was part of the former Soviet Union and where Maskaev's father is from, the fight was a huge deal. It was the second win in a row for Maskaev against a low-level opponent since Samuel Peter knocked him out in the sixth round a year ago to claim a heavyweight belt. Maskaev as a mandatory challenger is a farce, but what else would you expect from the WBC?





    Friday at Montreal
    Super middleweight
    Lucian Bute TKO4 Fulgencio Zuniga
    Retains a super middleweight title
    Records: Bute, 24-0, 19 KOs; Zuniga, 22-4-1, 19 KOs

    Rafael's remark: In October, Montreal star Bute came perilously close to being knocked out in the final seconds of the 12th round and losing his title to Librado Andrade, but a big heart and perhaps a little home cooking from Montreal referee Marlon Wright (who was officiating a fifth consecutive Bute bout) saved him. Bute survived the rocky 12th round and won the clear decision.



    So the question for Bute, 29, heading into his third title defense and his 11th consecutive fight at the Bell Centre, where the 12,153 fans cheered him wildly, was would he suffer any lingering effects from what happened to him in October, especially considering that Colombia's Zuniga is a tremendous puncher? The answer was a resounding "no." Bute, a southpaw, was dominant. He toyed with Zuniga through the first three rounds of the Showtime-televised bout. In the fourth, he landed a left to the pit of Zuniga's belly that dropped him. Struggling for air, Zuniga barely beat the count. When the fight resumed, Zuniga was met by a hard-charging Bute, who was pouring punches on Zuniga in the corner when referee Lindsey Page intervened at 2:25.



    Next up for Bute could be a rematch with Andrade in the fall. Andrade will face Vitali Tsypko in a title eliminator April 4 on Showtime on the undercard of the Tim Bradley-Kendall Holt junior welterweight unification fight. The Andrade-Tsypko winner will become Bute's mandatory challenger. Bute has said repeatedly that he would like to give Andrade a rematch. Beyond that, Bute said he'd be happy to leave the comfort of Canada to come to the United States to face Kelly Pavlik or Jermain Taylor. He has also expressed interest in a unification bout with Denmark's Mikkel Kessler.



    As for Zuniga, 31, he just can't get over the hump. Three of his defeats have come in world title bouts. Besides losing to Bute, Zuniga dropped a decision in a 2003 junior middleweight title match to Daniel Santos in Santos' native Puerto Rico. In September, he lost a competitive decision in Germany to Denis Inkin for a vacant super middleweight belt. His other defeat came via ninth-round TKO to Kelly Pavlik in Las Vegas in 2005. Pavlik, of course, would go on to win the middleweight championship.






    Friday at Kissimmee, Fla.
    Junior featherweight
    Wilfredo Vazquez W12 Jose Beranza
    Scores: 120-107, 119-108, 118-109
    Records: Vazquez, 15-0-1, 12 KOs; Beranza, 31-15-2, 25 KOs


    Rafael's remark: Vazquez, 24, of Puerto Rico, rolled past journeyman Beranza, 32, of Mexico, who dropped his sixth fight in his past seven. Vazquez, son of the former multidivision champion, was just faster and more accurate with his punches as he cruised in a Telemundo main event that figured to be a one-sided bout. It would be nice to see Vazquez step up his competition for a change

    Penn, let it go. Nothing is gonna change the beating you got on the 31st. NOTHING! You lost the first one, you never shut up about it. You lost the second one, and again, still running your mouth.

    Your high guard wasn't ineffective because of Vaseline, it was ineffective because you never closed it. You weren't able to close it because of the size difference, not because of Vaseline. Your guard wasn't even effective in the first match up. The "B" is fighting you nicely right now.

    MMA Schedule/Notes

    see above Roy Jones Jr PPV card. It will have both Boxing & MMA fights on the same card, while this has been done before in smaller club shows this is the first time a card like that to be on PPV. It was originally a Co-Main Event with Roy Jones Jr being the main event of the boxing portion and Ken Shamrock headlining the MMA side, well we all know Shamrock cant seem to get to a scheduled fight these days without getting injured so he's off the card, either way both are washed up and this is a horrible PPV! No your best bet for boxing this weekend will be on regular network television yes for the first time ever ESPN will air a live Heavyweight championship fight live from Stuttgart, Germany 6PM ET/3PM PT as Vitali Klitschko puts his version of the title on the line against Juan Carlos Gomez (Btw Vitali Klitscko's younger brother Wladimir holds the other titles) it should be a fun fight to watch!

    HBO, Floyd Mayweather Jr, and July 11th
    By Thomas Hauser


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    July 4th is the traditional date for fireworks in the United States, but a battle is shaping up over who fights on HBO one week later.
    Golden Boy and Main Events have offered HBO an IBF cruiserweight title fight between champion Tomasz Adamek and the ever-youthful Bernard Hopkins for July 11th. HBO likes the fight, but has put it on hold pending negotiations for the return of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

    Al Haymon (Mayweather’s adviser) has been in talks with HBO about Floyd fighting the winner of the May 2nd match-up between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton. But first Mayweather wants to sharpen his skills in a tune-up bout and reintroduce himself to the boxing public.

    Mayweather’s proposed date is July 11th against TBA. Sources say that Haymon would prefer that the bout be on HBO World Championship Boxing rather than pay-per-view; possibly because poor pay-per-view numbers would undermine Mayweather’s negotiating position for a late 2009 fight against the winner of Pacquiao-Hatton. The problem is; Floyd wants pay-per-view money for an HBO World Championship Boxing fight.

    Stay tuned.
    Hope this is true I never believed he retired and he has plenty of challengers out thier waitng in line to give him his first lost.

    cant wait till they release this its only a limited release in NY/LA might have to take a drive up to Los Angeles!

    Tyson: The Movie
    18.03.09 - Welcome to the no-holds barred epic portrayal of the life of heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Tyson: The Movie will take you on an incredible journey into the legendary boxer’s life, from his days as a teenage drug dealer and thief in New York to his meteoric rise to fame as the champion of the world and through to his shocking, outrageous decline.

    For the first time in history, and in his own words, this unparalleled extremist takes you deep into his gritty world of crime, drug addiction and violence. Witness the “monster” fighting for his reputation and his very life while imprisoned for rape, tearing Evander Holyfield’s ear off with his teeth and tasting defeat at the hands of Britain’s Lennox Lewis... all before finally declaring bankruptcy and revealing the loss of a $400 million fortune.

    The top of the world or the bottom of the ocean... there is no in-between. For more details check out http://www.tysonmovie.co.uk..






    Sony Pictures Classics “TYSON” Trailer Now Live!

    “Tyson” is acclaimed indie director James Toback’s stylistically inventive portrait of a mesmerizing Mike Tyson. Toback allows Tyson to reveal himself without inhibition and with eloquence and a pervasive vulnerability. Through a mixture of original interviews and archival footage and photographs, a startlingly complex, fully-rounded human being emerges. The film ranges from Tyson’s earliest memories of growing up on the mean streets of Brooklyn through his entry into the world of boxing, to his rollercoaster ride in the funhouse of worldwide fame and fortunes won and lost. It is the story of a legendary and uniquely controversial international athletic icon, a figure conjuring radical questions of race and class. In its depiction of a man rising from the most debased circumstances to unlimited heights, destroyed by his own hubris, TYSON emerges as a modern day version of classic Greek tragedy.

Maskaev, 40, barely broke a sweat, drilling Boruff in 95 seconds. The fight didn't exactly register among fight fans in the United States, but in Mordovia, which was part of the former Soviet Union and where Maskaev's father is from, the fight was a huge deal. It was the second win in a row for Maskaev against a low-level opponent since Samuel Peter knocked him out in the sixth round a year ago to claim a heavyweight belt. Maskaev as a mandatory challenger is a farce, but what else would you expect from the WBC?

    .

    This summary is pretty telling..

    It really sucks that the Heavyweight division has been so irrelevant over the past decade.

    HBO, Floyd Mayweather Jr, and July 11th
    By Thomas Hauser


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    July 4th is the traditional date for fireworks in the United States, but a battle is shaping up over who fights on HBO one week later.
    Golden Boy and Main Events have offered HBO an IBF cruiserweight title fight between champion Tomasz Adamek and the ever-youthful Bernard Hopkins for July 11th. HBO likes the fight, but has put it on hold pending negotiations for the return of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

    Al Haymon (Mayweather’s adviser) has been in talks with HBO about Floyd fighting the winner of the May 2nd match-up between Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton. But first Mayweather wants to sharpen his skills in a tune-up bout and reintroduce himself to the boxing public.

    Mayweather’s proposed date is July 11th against TBA. Sources say that Haymon would prefer that the bout be on HBO World Championship Boxing rather than pay-per-view; possibly because poor pay-per-view numbers would undermine Mayweather’s negotiating position for a late 2009 fight against the winner of Pacquiao-Hatton. The problem is; Floyd wants pay-per-view money for an HBO World Championship Boxing fight.

    Nice one of my co-workers went to this he said it was great I saw the fight I thought GSP gave him a good technical whoopin. What was that you posted earlier about Penn wanting a rematch, why?? I think the result would be the same if not worse.

    Nurse, one of GSP's corner men was applying Vaseline to his face. Afterwords, with the same hand, he was rubbing his back. It is part of a breathing technique he likes (GSP). There begins, "Greasgate".

    Penn is now on this trip that the tiny amount of Vaseline, applied accidentally, is what cost him the fight. In no way is that true. He got beat in every aspect of the game.

    Yes: It was wrong and should not have happened, and never be allowed to happen again. And I'm pretty sure they've implemented changes to the corners so it doesn't happen again.

    No: It did not cost Penn the fight.

    And, the commissioner himself (Kizer), wiped GSP's back.

    Roy Jones Jr ppv results


    Jones chops down Sheika in five roundsComment Email Print Share ESPN.com news services

    Roy Jones Jr. Earns TKO Over Omar Sheika
    Roy Jones Jr. stopped Omar Sheika in the 5th round of a light heavyweight boutRoy Jones Jr. Earns TKO Over Omar Sheika
    PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Roy Jones Jr., making a comeback from his lopsided loss in November to then-light heavyweight champion Joe Calzaghe, stopped Omar Sheika in the fifth round on Saturday.

    Jones, who won the regional NABO light heavyweight title belt, was dominating Sheika. He was snapping Sheika's head back and had opened a cut on his face when referee Tommy Kimmons jumped in to stop the bout at 1:45.

    Jones (53-5, 39 KOs), a former four-division champion, was fighting in his hometown for the first time since knocking out Ricky Frazier in two rounds to retain the light heavyweight championship in January 1999.

    It was also only the second time since 1992 that Jones, 40, had his longtime estranged father, Roy Jones Sr., working as part of his corner after their reunion a couple of months ago.

    The pay-per-view card also featured several mixed martial arts bouts. In the co-featured boxing match, cruiserweight contender B.J. Flores won a lopsided 10-round decision against Jose Luis Herrera on scores of 99-91, 99-91 and 98-92.

    Sheika (27-9, 18 KOs), 32, of Paterson, N.J., was fighting for the first time since September 2007. He has lost three of his last four bouts.


    Lashley guts out win over GuidaComment Email Print Share By Brian Knapp
    Sherdog.com
    Archive
    Former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Bobby Lashley experienced some growing pains in his second appearance as a professional mixed martial artist.



    The muscular 32-year-old smothered journeyman Jason Guida in the clinch and on the ground, landed nearly all of the significant strikes and settled for a valuable but unspectacular unanimous decision victory at Square Ring Promotions' March Badness on Saturday at the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Fla.



    Lashley (2-0) dominated much of the bout, though his overzealousness nearly resulted in his succumbing to a third-round guillotine choke. Guida trapped Lashley in the middle of a double-leg takedown and tightened his grip around Lashley's neck.



    Lashley seemed in trouble for a time but popped his head free roughly a half minute later.



    "A hold like that is so tight that you've got to make a decision whether or not you want to be a champion or just another MMA fighter," Lashley said. "I had to dig deep."



    Guida (17-20, 2 no contest) accepted the fight on short notice after UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock, Lashley's original opponent, was suspended for suspected steroid use in California. He stayed competitive but absorbed a number of heavy punches and a powerful second-round slam. Ultimately, the judges sided with Lashley by matching 30-27 scores.



    Faced with an enormous strength disadvantage, Guida taunted and baited Lashley during the brief buildup for their match, mocking his professional wrestling background. His tactics worked, and Lashley vouched for their effectiveness afterward.



    "I came in here in the wrong frame of mind," Lashley said. "This is a sport, and we're gentlemen. We're going to go back, and we're going to train."



    In the co-main event, Jeff Monson won a controversial decision from former International Fight League champion Roy Nelson. Scores were 29-28 on all three cards.



    Nelson (13-4) mounted Monson in the first round and took him down twice with trips in the second, but he failed to capitalize when he had the tattooed veteran on his back. Monson escaped from underneath the 260-pound fighter numerous times and carried his weight for much of the match. He peppered Nelson's soft midsection with knees from the clinch in the second round, which may have turned the tide in the judges' eyes.



    "I wanted to go to the ground," Monson said. "I couldn't move him. We just fought a tough fight."



    A decorated grappler with roots at American Top Team, Monson wobbled Nelson with a left hook in the first minute of the final round but did not follow it with anything of consequence. The two heavyweights spent the closing moments in the clinch, then traded blows during the final 10 seconds.



    Monson (27-8), once a challenger for the UFC heavyweight championship, has quietly pieced together a four-fight winning streak since his decision loss to Josh Barnett at Sengoku "Second Battle" in May.



    "This is a big win," Monson said. "Roy's a tough guy. It could have gone either way."

    Vitali Klitschko vs Juan Carlos Gomez results



    Klitschko KOs Gomez!


    By Alexey Potapov at ringside

    WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (37-2, 36 KOs) scored an impressive ninth round TKO over mandatory challenger Juan Carlos Gomez (44-2, 35 KOs) on Saturday night at Hanns-Martin-Schleyer Halle in Stuttgart, Germany. Klitschko methodically broke down Gomez, an ex-cruiserweight world champion, cutting him above the right eye in rouind five. Klitschko was cut on the hairline in round six by a headbutt, but dropped Gomez in the seventh with a big right uppercut. After another dominant round eight, Klitschko dropped Gomez again in the ninth and the fight was soon waved off by referee Daniel van de Wiele. Time was 1:49.

    Noooooooooooo... it was plaster of paris in his gloves cheating bastard why, whyyyyy? all my favorite fighters seem to always turn out to be cheaters or psyhcos!

    Tests show plaster of Paris ingredientsComment Email Print Share ESPN.com news services
    The hand wraps confiscated from former welterweight champion Antonio Margarito shortly before his title defense against "Sugar" Shane Mosley contained two primary elements of plaster of Paris, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing documents obtained from California's top law enforcement agency.

    A California Department of Justice senior criminalist who inspected the wrappings under a stereomicroscope and with an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer determined the wraps contained sulfur and calcium, according to a document obtained by the Times. Those two elements, with the addition of oxygen, make plaster of Paris.

    The hand wraps were removed from Margarito's fists shortly before his Jan. 24 title fight against Mosley when Mosley's trainer, Nazim Richardson, objected to their use. The hardened gauze pads, which had been inserted inside the hand wraps near Margarito's knuckles, were seized by the California State Athletic Commission, which sanctions and oversees boxing in the state.

    Mosley went on to claim a TKO win in the ninth round and take the WBA welterweight title.

    In February, following a hearing days after the fight, the state athletic commission revoked the licenses of Margarito and his trainer, Javier Capetillo, for one year. The commission's decision is likely to be upheld in other states.

    "The [state athletic] commission's decision appears to be supported by that report," said Karen Chappelle, the state supervising deputy attorney general for licensing who urged the state commission to revoke Margarito's and Capetillo's licenses.

    "The only things that are allowed in hand wraps are gauze and tape and those items aren't gauze and tape," she said, according to the Times.

    Margarito and Capetillo have yet to appeal the revocations of their licenses.

    According to the report, Margarito's promoter, Bob Arum, had no immediate response to the findings.

    "I'd have to see [the report]," Arum said.

    these are pics from his biggest fight before getting caught in the Shane Mosley fight against Miguel Cotto....look at how he left his face everybody is now assuming he had the plaster of paris in all his fights!
