title Ward Destroys Camou, Scott & Estrada Both Victorious

ward42451By Chris Williams: I suppose this was supposed to have been a step up for undefeated super middleweight contender Andre Ward (17-0, 12 KOs). However, as it turned out, the fight was just as easy as Ward’s previous 16 fights in his professional career, as he took apart veteran Esteban Camou (23-5, 19 KOs), stopping him in the 3rd round of a scheduled 10-round bout on Saturday night at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, in Cabazon, California.

title Toney Decisions Oquendo, Looks Terrible

toney342334By Chris Williams: Right about now, heavyweight James Toney (71-6-3, 43 KOs) should considerate himself very fortunate that he didn’t lose to Fres Oquendo (29-5, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa, in Cabazon, California, because from what I saw of the fight, Toney lost every round except for the 8th and 9th. Indeed, he looked nothing short of terrible in getting a gift 12-round split decision victory over Oquendo to win both the vacant International Boxing Association heavyweight and WBO NABO heavyweight titles.

holt34231By Jim Dower: In his first defense of his World Boxing Organization (WBO) light welterweight title, Kendall Holt (25-2, 13 KOs) won a 12-round split decision over replacement fighter Demetrius Hopkins (28-1-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The final judges’ scores were 116-112, 117-111 and 113-115. The fight wasn’t all that close, though, as Holt clearly was the better fighter through much of the 12-round fight.

title Latest Boxing News – Foreman Decisions Moore

foreman4322By Chris Williams: Undefeated light middleweight contender Yuri Foreman (27-0, 8 KOs) defeated Irish prospect James Moore (16-2, 10 KOs) by a dull 10-round unanimous decision on Saturday night to defend his little known NABF light middleweight title at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The final judges’ scores were 99-91, 100-90 and 99-90. Foreman, ranked #4 in the World Boxing Association, #6 in the IBF and #8 in the WBC, ran throughout the fight, playing a game of tag and you’re it with Moore, 30, and making the fight as dull as you imagine.
