World Boxing Council Female International Champion, Maricela Cornejo, participated in the 2016 9th Annual Padres Contra El Cancer (Parents Against Cancer) 5k at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. An amazing boy, Justin Gonzalez, recently touched Cornejo, a boy she visited a few weeks before her World Title fight in April. She connected with Justin and his family so great; Childhood Cancer has become a cause near and dear to her heart and will do so to help keep Justin’s memory alive. Former Champion, Top Rank Boxing’s Brandon Rios is an Ambassador of PADRES and has been supporting the cause for over five years now and it was great to see two Boxing Champions take the time out of their days to support this great cause. PADRES Contra El Cáncer is an organization committed to improving the quality of life for children with cancer and their families.
World Boxing Council Female International Champion Maricela Cornejo Gives Back in a Big Way – Boxing News
Now that David “Pinky Toe” Haye and Shannon “Loud Mouth” Briggs have knocked out non descript opponents and may fight next, who do you think will win?
Three and a half years and 6 fights after their first bout, Lara climbs into the ring with Vanes Martirosyan for a second time around. Lara coming of an utterly expected TKO 3 win against a middle of the road fighter, Jan Zaveck and Martirosyan coming of a 2-1 record in his last three fights with 10 round decisions against Ishe Smith and Willie Nelson and losing to Jermell Charlo by UD.
This bout was not the most exciting but had some solid action with rounds, on my card, tipping either way for most of the fight. I had it 19-19 after 2, 38-38 after 4, 57-57 after 6 and 95-95 after 10.
Jermall & Jermell Charlo Make Boxing History With Wins – Erislandy Lara Pulls Out Win Over Vanes Martirosyan
Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara successfully defended his WBA Super Welterweight Championship with a hard-fought 12-round unanimous decision over Vanes “The Nightmare” Martirosyan, undefeated brothers Jermall and Jermell Charlo, of Houston, became the first twins in boxing history to hold world titles in the same weight class.
Jermall Charlo (24-0, 18 KOs) retained his IBF Junior Middleweight World Championship with a unanimous 12-round decision over former world champion Austin “No Doubt” Trout (30-3, 17 KOs) of Las Cruces, N.M., in the second of three world title fights on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® from The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
World Boxing Association (WBA) “regular” cruiserweight world champion Beibut Shumenov (17-2, 10 KOs) stopped No. 11-rated Junior “Hurricane” Wright (15-2-1, 12 KOs) in the 10th round tonight at The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
Shumenov, a former WBA light heavyweight world champion, is first two-division world champion from a Soviet-bloc country. The native of Kazakhstan, fighting out of Las Vegas, also earned the right to challenge unified WBA Super/ International Boxing Federation (IBF) cruiserweight world champion Denis Lebedev (29-2, 22 KOs) within 120 days, as mandated by the WBA.
David Haye comes into this fight with a 27-2, 25 KO’s record. This is his second fight in five months after being dormant for 3 ½ years. Coming off a 1st round TKO of Mark de Mori, himself being tag with the “KO artist” moniker wasn’t much work for him in his boxing return. Arnold Gjergjaj, 29-1-0 21 KO’s hasn’t fought much top competition so the KO rate shouldn’t fool anyone! Even so, Haye still was able to draw upwards of 16k spectators at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London.

Friday night inside of the Double Tree Hotel in Ontario, California Thompson Boxing celebrated it’s 16 year anniversary entitled “New Blood” headlined by a match-up between Danny Roman, 17-2-1, 6 KO’s of Los Angeles, California and Christian Esquivel, 28-9, 21 KO’s in a 10-round NABA Super Bantamweight title fight. In addition to defending his 122-pound title, Roman was looking to extend his win streak to 11 while also holding onto, or improving upon, the number fourteen ranking by the WBA. The Southern California native Roman looked very impressive to start the fight as Danny was the faster fighter. Roman used his speed and technical boxing skills to outbox the veteran Mexican fighter through the first 3 rounds. Although the veteran Esquivel pushed forward he was caught on several occasions with big counter shots by Roman. In the 5th after a barrage of punches by Esquivel, Roman seemed to find another gear landing several power shots on the head of his opponent. Referee Raul Caiz, JR. stepped in at the 1:52 mark of round 5 to end the bout and give Roman his 11th straight victory. Roman improves to 18-2-1, 8 KO’s.

Look my wrestling flock, if “BRJ” says it, it’s so. As you already know, Roman and I go way back slanging and banging from the top rope. He’s aces in “BRJ’s” book and come this Sunday, at WWE Extreme Rules, he is going to kick the crap out of AJ Styles! Remember where you heard it my wrestling flock.
“BRJ” has left the building – Ruff Ruff…
The UFC heavyweight division just had its new champion; Ohio’s own Stipe Miocic.After a crazy night in Brazil where then-contender Stipe Miocic took the heavyweight title from Fabricio Werdum with a vicious step-back right hook that face-planted Werdum shocked so many, not of the result but of the manner. The heavyweight division is back to its old crazy ways.In the history of the UFC heavyweight title, no champion had ever defended the title more than twice and it didn’t look like it was going to change that night.

By Dave “Madcap” Mroczek
Another solid heavyweight has emerged in the top five discussion, fight fans. Joseph Parker, 19-0, 16 KO’s is the man, a 24 year old prospect out of New Zealand, who took his first big step up early this morning against heavyweight stalwart Carlos Takam, 33-3-1, 25 KO’s. It was a tactical, yet pleasing, but not overly exciting fight to watch, with both men having the other in trouble and each trying their best to win it.
This week I have been touring the heart of the boxing fraternity – their gyms.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor and UFC Brass reportedly met to discuss McGregor’s future with the company. After a very confusing month in which McGregor tweeted about an impending retirement and subsequent “unretirement” got all the people excited, shocked and just plain confused. The fiasco was reportedly due to McGregor’s insistence in foregoing his media responsibilities for a longer training camp.
Everybody’s waiting to see whether Floyd Mayweather, JR. will come out of retirement to box Conor McGregor, the UFC featherweight champion. To make things even more spectacular this is supposed to happen in Las Vegas, Nevada. Well, where else rather than the capital of gambling and everything that is flashy, the city that has inspired many online gambling sites with five star casino bonuses and reviews.
More and more rumors come out that this is very much real and is going to happen so it must be true, right? One of the problems towards this happening is McGregor’s exclusive contract with UFC. He can’t just show up in Sin City and fight whoever he pleases. However, reality has not always been what it is.
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez recently had to make a very important decision. To fight or refuse to fight Gennady Golovkin – his No.1 mandatory contender – in his next professional contest?Maybe the Gods of boxing’s Mount Olympus will grant the fans of the sweet science this one wish and the fight we all want to see takes place later this year. But let’s not get our hopes up too high. This is not the 1980’s. Behind the scenes Golden Boy Promotions have been scrambling like rats in a cage to find their guy some wiggle room to get out of this thing. And they’ve found it. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has decided to vacate and drop the lineal middleweight championship belt into a barrio trash can somewhere. That’s right. It’s a disgraceful and shameless ducking tactic. A blatant swerve! It has given him a way out of the fight and allows him to safely walk away from the ominous shadow of “GGG” darkening his doorway. But you know what? There’s a price to pay for running.
By Dave “Madcap” Mroczek
Everything that can be going wrong, is going wrong, fight fans. The ink is hardly dry on the press and already the boxing world is erupting in chants of “DUCK! DUCK! DUCK!” Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has vacated his WBC trinket so he can apparently continue to negotiate a fight with Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. Fat chance! The WBC was trying to force a purse bid, but the Canelo team wants no part of that. Once again, the paying public get shafted in another matchup that can only truly be believed if the two men are in the ring and the bell sounds. We have the two best middleweights in the world, in their prime, and chances of that fight happening in the foreseeable future is slim to none, despite what Canelo has to say.
