In a clash of featherweight contenders, WBO #3 Miguel Marriaga (24-1, 20 KOs) scored a sixth round KO over #14 rated Guy Robb (18-2, 8 KOs) on Saturday night’s “Rural Rumble” at the Churchill County Fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada. Marriaga connected with a series of right hands, finally dropping Robb in round six. Referee Russell Mora waved in off at 2:06. Former world title challenger Marriaga claimed the vacant North American Boxing Organization (NABO) featherweight title. Robb had his eleven-fight win streak snapped.

WBO #3 lightweight Jose Felix Jr. (34-1-1, 26 KOs) scored a punishing sixth round TKO over game journeyman “Red Hot” Rob Frankel (34-17-1, 7 KOs). A barrage of shots finished Frankel at 2:23 of round six.

Unbeaten featherweight prospect Jose ‘El Chocolatito’ Gonzalez (5-0-1, 2 KOs) outpointed Gelacio Cruz (2-4-2, 1 KO) in a four-round fight. Scores were 40-36 across the board.

DONAIRE ASSUMES PACQUIAO MANTLE WITH CRUSHING 3RD ROUND TKO OF BEDAK

donaire-bedak.fn.06.330w  By Ronnie Nathanielsz –

Two weeks after eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao scored an impressive unanimous twelve round decision in his trilogy with Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley and announced he was hanging up his gloves to pursue his mission of public service through election to the Senate in next month’s elections, Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire stepped up to assume Manny’s mantle of national sports hero by crushing former Hungarian Olympian and world No. 4 ranked Zsolt Bedak in three rounds before an ecstatic crowd of 25,000 supporters at the sprawling Cebu City Sports Center on a hot and humid Saturdaynight.

After an initial feeling-out round, Donaire connected with his lethal left hook to send the challenger who is himself known as “Mr. Left Hook” crashing to the canvas midway in round two.

With blood dripping from his battered nose, Bedak gamely got up only to be deposited on the seat of his trunks with another vicious left hook that had “no mercy” written all over it.

The bell mercifully saved the Hungarian Olympian who had lost only once before in his career as a pro in a title fight against Wilfredo Vazquez Jr who won by a 10th round TKO after Bedak who suffered a broken jaw in round two survived in a gallant effort for eight more rounds before he called it quits. Vasquez himself was dropped and beaten in lopsided fashion by Donaire who won the super bantamweight title at the Alamadome in San Antonio Texas some years ago.

It was clear the end was near as Donaire, cheered on by fight fans who had embraced him after his heroic battle against an unbelievably strong Cesar Juarez of Mexico to win the 122 pound crown for the second time following his crushing 6th round stoppage against the bigger, stronger Nicholas “Axe Man” Walters, chased the wobbly challenger and ripped into him this time with a cracking right hand that dropped Bedak for a third time giving renowned referee Russell Mora no choice but to call a halt to the massacre at 2:44 of the third round.

donaire-bedak.fn.05.600wDespite a battered, bloodied face with blood dripping from his nose and mouth, Bedak assured media that he was fine.

Donaire won the hearts of the hometown crowd by speaking in Bisaya since the island of Cebu is proud of its language and boxing heritage. With this memorable performance, Donaire showed that he is indeed worthy of the monicker “Flash”, a name that was worn by Cebu’s favorite son and legendary boxer, Gabriel Elorde, the son of a poor farmer from the town of Bogo who was the longest reigning Filipino world champion until WBO light flyweight Donnie Nietes punched his way to surpass the record in January last year.

ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer who teamed up with lead promoter Top Rank and the giant broadcast network ABS-CBN told The Standard that the plan is to see whether Donaire’s next title defense could also be staged in the Philippines in the face of the massive support from Filipino fight fans looking for someone to carry the torch for Philippine boxing.

Por Ludo Saenz L. Luaces en Ringside –

En una atracción especial del respaldo de la mega velada “Honor y Gloria: Canelo vs. Lara” que se realiza este sábado, en el MGM Grand Garden Arena, de Las Vegas, Nevada, Estados Unidos, bajo una promoción de Golden Boy Promotions y Canelo Promotions, el invicto japonés Tomoki “El Mexicanito” Kameda, defendió con éxito su campeonato mundial gallo de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB), al noquear en el séptimo asalto al retador mandatorio de la OMB y OMB#1, el tailandés Pungluang Sor Singyu.

El tailandés salió ejerciendo presión en el primero, caminando hacia adelante y buscando el cuerpo con ambas manos. Kameda lo mantuvo a media distancia, detrás de su jab.

Kameda controlo el segundo, conectando sendas combinaciones arriba y abajo, aprovechando que Singyu habría mucho los abrazos, cada vez que lanzaba su ofensiva.

El tailandés logro acorralar a Kameda en las esquinas blanca y azul, conectando con la derecha e izquierda al cuerpo. El japonés lucia mejor cuando forzaba la pelea en el centro del ring.

Singyu tomo control del cuarto episodio, logrando retroceder al japonés con durísimos golpes al cuerpo. Kameda parecía lastimado por momentos, e incluso abrazo varias veces.

Cuando parecía que el tailandés disfrutaba la acción en el quinto, conectando a placer, Kameda lo paro en seco con un durísimo recto de derecha en el centro del ring. Singyu bajo la intensidad y Kameda aprovecho para soltar las manos, asestando combinaciones claras a la cabeza.

Kameda siguió manteniéndose a media distancia en el sexto, a toda costa, evitando los bombazos de derecha, abajo, del tailandés.

En el séptimo, el japonés repetía la dosis, pero sus manos llegaban con peligrosidad a la anatomía del retador. En un intercambio, Kameda conecto un perfecto gancho de izquierda al hígado, que dejo a Singyu retorciéndose de dolor en la lona. El réferi Russell Mora no termino el conteo de diez, declarando el nocaut efectivo.

“Nosotros estuvimos practicando en México esa mano izquierda al hígado,” dijo Kameda después de la pelea. “Sabíamos que teníamos que boxearlo los primeros seis asaltos, para cansarlo, ese era el plan. Nunca me lastimo.”

Jimmy Lennon Jr. anuncio el nocaut al minuto 1:35 del séptimo asalto. Tomoki Kameda realiza la segunda defensa exitosa de su título y mantiene su invicto intacto con 30-0 y 19 KOs. El ex campeón mundial Pungluang Singyu quedo con marca de 46-3 y 31 KOs.
