MINIMUMWEIGHT UPDATE: ALL HAIL FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ, WBO/IBF CHAMPION

Francisco Rodriguez Jr. W12 Katsunari Takayama... A rare 105-pound unification bout took place in Mexico last weekend and the result was so exciting thatit deserves belated attention from fight fans who likely missed what turned out to be a fight-of-the-year candidate. In Monterrey, Mexico, 21-year-old Francisco Rodriguez Jr. (15-2, 10 KOs) unified the WBO and IBF minimumweight championships with a unanimous-decision victory over Katsunari Takayama (27-7, 10 KOs). In the third round, a Rodriguez left uppercut sent Takayama to the mat. The Japanese champion quickly rose, and when Rodriguez slowed down to start round four, he turned the tide of the battle. Most of the middle rounds saw Takayama suffocate his young foe, drilling punches into him from many angles. In round eight, Rodriguez tried to touch gloves, but a split second after the touch, Takayama threw a right that crashed into the back of the Mexican’s ear. The tactic spurred a Rodriguez comeback, and the bout turned into a full-on war for the remaining five rounds. Rodriguez’s punchers were heavier as the action reached a crescendo in the final two rounds. The scorecards were read and Rodriguez Jr. was announced the winner by a tally of 115-112, 116-111 and an unfair 119-108. View the full fight here. Rodriguez was previously best known for a 2013 loss to undefeated Roman Gonzalez, who has held world titles at 105 and 108, giving both titles up outside the ring to move up in weight. Takayama has fought the world's best, inclsuing losses to Gonzalez and Nkoinathi Joyi. He briefly held the WBC 105-pound title in 2005 courtesy of a win over Isaac Bustos and won the IBF version in 2013 by defeating Mario Rodriguez. Hopefully, the unification of the 105-pound division can continue with Rodriguez taking on WBA counterpart Hekkie Budler of South Africa. The WBC title is held by journeyman Oswaldo Novoa of Mexico. source: wbo

UNDEFEATED HORACIO GARCIA MAKING WAVES IN MEXICO

Horacio Garcia TKO5 Jonathan Perez...Mexico's 122-pound prospect Horacio "Violento" Garcia (27-0) took another important step in his career by defeating Colombia's Jonathan Perez with a fifth round technical knockout over the weekend in Ixtapa, Mexico. It was bombs away and heavy flak from the opening bell, which delighted the audience. After four rounds, the WBC's open scoring system showed Garcia leading by scores of 40-36 and 39-37 (twice). In the fifth, Garcia trapped Perez (33-10) in the neutral corner and staggered him with an overhead right. Garcia allowed Perez no no respite, raining punches in until referee, Gabriel Peralta had no choice but to to stop the fight. The Colombian quickly regained his senses and bitterly complained about the stoppage. Perez has a 15-fight unbeaten streak ended. source: wbc

 BROOK UPSETS PORTER FOR IBF TITLE

Kell Brook W12 Shawn Porter:  Kell Brook was too techinically sound for Shawn Porter's sheer aggressiveness and energy to overcome. Brook was able to neutralize much of Porter's aggression with lateral movement, clinches, and straight puncing. Both boxers suffered cuts as the result of accidental headbutts. Brook was first to be cut in the second round, Porter was cut in the closing minute of the sixth round. At the end of the day it was too much skill for Porter's will to overcome tonight. Official scores were a majority decision for Brook: 114-114, 117-111, 116-112. Boxingtalk scored the bout 117-111 for Brook.  Source: Showtime

 DIRRELL TAKES WBC TITLE FROM BIKA

Anthony Dirrell W12 Sakio Bika: Anthony Dirrell came out very quickly to start his rematch with Sakio Bika. Following a take down thirty seconds into the bout referee Jack Reiss had to call time and calm down the ugly action down. He did not succeed however. Dirrell was clearly the better fighter throughout and landed the cleaner punches. He did whatever necessary to stay calm amidst the rough house tactics Sakio Bika is known for. There were Bika rabbit punches, take downs and head butts, but Dirrell kept his composure and remained disciplined enough to easily walk away with the WBC super middleweight championship. Official scores were 114-113, 116-111, 117-110. Boxingtalk scored it 117-110.

 FIGUEROA STOPS ESTRADA IN 9

Omar Figueroa TKO9 Daniel Estrada: Undefeated WBC lightweight champion Omar Figueroa held off a game effort from a very motivated Daniel Estrada in the opening bout of Showtime's Championship Boxing Triple Header. Both fighters had their moments and the fight was fought at a furious pace with several heated exchanges. Figueroa suffered a nasty gash over his left eye in round eight, but didn't allow the cut to become a fight changing factor as he blasted Estrada out of there early in the ninth round. The beginning of the end came with a right hand that floored Estrada, a few flurries later Raul Caiz Sr waved the fight off. Official time of stoppage was 1:00. Source: Showtime

SHOWTIME EXTREME RESULTS

Wilder, Breazeale stay unbeaten

Deontay Wilder TKO4 Jason Gavern: Deontay Wilder (pictured) kept his perfect record and title challenge intact with a less than scintillating performance over Jason Gavern, who took the fight on six day notice. Gavern was down in each of the third and fourth rounds, but retired himself after returning to his corner. Wilder improves to 32-0, all by knockout. 

Jorge Linares KO2 Ira Terry: Former two division champion Jorge Linares outclassed Ira Terry for a round and a half before knocking him out face first with a perfectly timed right hand counter. Linares is now in line to fight for his third title in as many divisions. Official time of stoppage was 1:21.

Other results: Lydell Rhodes TKO4 John Nater, Alan Sanchez KO3 Jose Luis Ramirez, Dominic Breazeale KO2 Billy Zumbrun, Jascon Quigly TKO3 Fernando Najara.  source for all results: Showtime

 DAILY BREAD SATURDAY EDITION:(8-16-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Shawn Porter vs Kell Brook Breakdown & Prediction plus more.....

Breadman:  I know you are a fan of Kell Brook... you’ve told me that before. On both sides though there was always some reservations about him. I guess this weekend we get to find out if he is the real deal.  As us Brits say…its cock on the block time! Who wins, why and how? I’m going to say Kell Brook, i think he adapts his style and deals with Porter albeit it in a difficult fight. £50 English Pounds if you wish to go the other way and take the home fighter? Assume you’ve got PayPal so the bet isn’t hard :) -- Shane, Oxford, UK
