LERATO DLAMINI SHOCKS EX-CHAMP SIMPIWE VETYEKA

Youth beats experience in featherweight tournament

Lerato Dlamini W10 Simpiwe Vetyeka... Former world featherweight champion Simpiwe Vetyeka was shocked by unheralded Lerato Dlamini, who won by majority decision. Few gave Dlamini (10-1) much chance against the vastly more experienced Vetkea (29-4). However, the younger Dlamini produced a brave, bustling performance against a man who had clearly lost his edge. Vetyeka’s 18 months of inactivity showed as he was repeatedly beaten to the punch. In his prime, he was a devilishly hard man to beat, but Dlamini showed him little respect as he advanced on him and unloaded at will. There were few highlights, but ultimately Dlamini’s better work rate served him well and he was announced the winner by majority decision: 97-93, 95-94 and 95-95.

Azinga Fuzile TKO3 Tshifhiwa Munyai ... On the same South African card, featherweight Azinga Fuzile (9-0) destroyed Tshifhiwa Munyai (28-5-1) in the third round at Emperors Palace. Fuzile will face Lerato Dlamini next. No one quite knew how the South African featherweight champion would fare against experienced Tshifhiwa Munyai, but minutes into the first round it was glaringly obvious as he began throwing punches with bad intentions.  source for all results: rodney berman's golden gloves

RESULTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

William Zepeda TKO3 Juan P. Borbon... On Saturday in Metepec, Mexico, William Zepeda stopped Juan Pablo Borbon in an all-Mexican lightweight contest. The 21 year-old Zepeda (12-0) took control in the second and hurt Borbon on several occasions. After three action-packed rounds Borbon (7-2-2) had enough, and didn’t come out for the fourth. Winning his first professional title, William “Camaron” Zepeda, still only twenty-one years old, took his record to 12-0 (10). Juan Pablo Borbon falls to 7-2-2 (3).

Andreas Valavanis TKO2 Vladimer Janezashvili... In Cairo, welterweight Andreas “King Cheetah” Valavanis had a somewhat disappointing, albeit victorious, evening. It was no fault of his own, and he put on a flawless performance. The 25 year-old Valavanis (10-0) was superior to Georgian opponent Vladimer Janezashvili, who was hurt by body shots in the second round.  Janezashvili (12-6-1) claimed a shoulder injury, and was saved by his corner when the towel was thrown in and referee Eddie Marshall waved it off.  source for both results: wbf

THIS TIME, MURATA LEAVES NO DOUBT AGAINST N'DAM
By Scott Shaffer

Ryoto Murata TKO6 Hassam N'dam... In Tokyo, 2012 Olympic gold medal winner Ryoto Murata gained revenge over Hassan N'dam, winning a middleweight rematch when N'Dam's corner stopped the bout after six one-sided rounds. N'dam was credited with winning their first encounter earlier this year, but that was discounted by the horrible judging that robbed Murata. With the win, Murata improves to 13-1 and captures the WBA's secondary middleweight title (the true world middleweight champion, Gennady Golovkin, holds the WBA super championship). N'Dam heads back to France with a record of 36-3. source: espn

Press Release: Former WBO 154-pound title holder Demetrius Andrade made a successful debut as a middleweight by winning a twelve-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Alantez Fox at The Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York. In round one, Andrade rocked Fox with a straight left hand and proceeded to dominate most of the action. In round seven, Fox was awarded a dubious knockdown when Andrade slipped on the wet canvas.  Television replays showed that Fox did not even land a punch during that exchange. Andrade cruised home to the victory and Compubox punch stats showed he outlanded Fox 158-52 over the twelve-round bout with Andrade winning the power shots by a 132-29 margin.

GASSIEV KOS WLODARCZYK WITH BODY SHOT
By Scott Shaffer

Murat Gassiev KO3 Krzysztof Wlodarczyk ... In Newark, New Jersey, IBF champion Murat Gassiev punched his ticket to the semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series semi-finals by defeating former two-time title holder Krzysztof Wlodarczyk by knockout in the third round.  An uppercut / body shot combination put Wlodarczyk down for the count. Gassiev is now 25-0. He should also hold the WBA title as he defeated Denis Lebedev when Lebedev held the title but the WBA corruptly continued to recognize Lebedev. The 36 year-old Wlodarczyk is now 53-4-1. Gassiev will next face Cuba's Yunier Dorticos, who holds the WBA's secondary title, while the other cruiserweight semi-final will feature WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk vs. WBC champion Mairis Briedis.

By G. Leon

Alberto Machado TKO8 Jezreel Corrales: Puerto Rico has a ne wworld title holder as Albert Machado (19-0 with 16 KOs) captured the vacant WBA 130-pound title in Vernona, New York on Saturday. His opponent was Panama's Jezreel Corrales, who lost his titles on the scales on Friday but showed up to fight on Saturday. Corrales (22-2 with 8 KOs), was in control for the first five rounds and landed a left hand that decked Machado in the fifth. Machado beat the count then survived the final minute of the round. Corrales was having another good round in the sixth until he was badly hurt by a Machado left hook. Machado finished the round strong and clearly won his first round of the bout. Corrales, who appeared to be glancing at the clock throughout the bout, got back to business in round seven and hurt Machado again. In another hotly contested round, both fighters landed straight left hands, but Machado's did more damage as Corrales went to the canvas face first. He beat the count, but the referee stopped the fight. Official time of stoppage was 2:18. Source: HBO

ESPN RESULTS FROM FRIDAY: GABE ROSADO WARS ON
By Scott Shaffer

Gabriel Rosado TKO6 Glen Tapia ... On Friday in Las Vegas, Gabriel Rosado of Phialdephia snapped a two-fight losing streak and sent New Jersey's Glen Tapia to a fourth straight loss. Rosado (24-11) stopped Tapia (23-5) in round six of their middleweight contest. Tapia, who has absorbed a lot of punishment in his career, developed a hematoma (swelling) on his forehead, and Rosado began targeting it.  Tapia was floored in round six, and when he got hit a few more times after getting up, the referee wisely stopped it. Roasado will continue to wage war, while Tapia may want to consider another line of work after the consistent beatings he's been taking.

KeAndre Gibson W10 Alejandro Barrera ... In a welterweight bout on the same show, St. Louis native KeAndre Gibson won a majority decision over a bloody Alejandro Barrera of Mexico.  The to traded punches freely,  but it was Gibson (18-1-1, 7 KOs) who defeated Barrera (26-4, 17 KOs) by scores of 97-93, 98-92 and 95-95. source: espn.com

JEZREEL CORRALES LOSES WBA TITLE ON THE SCALES

According to the WBA, Jezreel Corrales has been stripped of the WBA junior lightweight super championship because he failed to make the division's weight limit of 130 pounds. Corrales (22-1, 8 KOs) is facing  Puerto Rico's Alberto Machado (18-0, 15 KOs) at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York tonight. But at yesterday's weigh-in, the Panamanian Corrales came in heavy at 133.25 pounds, forfeiting the title. The WBA has a confusing and often corrupt system of awarding multiple titles in the same weight class.  Corrales was the super champion on the strength of two wins over Takashi Uchiyama in 2016, but the WBA's website says if Machado wins, he would become only the regular WBA champion. The WBA's regular championship at 130 pounds has been vacant since Jason Sosa was stripped for trying to unify against WBO champion Vasyl Lomachenko. Corrales vs. Machado will be shown on HBO's Boxing After Dark. --Scott Shaffer
