HYLAND, MARTIN WIN IN NYC

Patrick Hyland TKO4 Noel Echevarria... At New York City's B.B. King Blues Club and Grill, Irish featherweight Patrick "The Punisher" Hyland defeated Noel Echevarria, the first time that Hyland had seen ring action in nearly two years. The result was a fourth-round technical knockout. The Irishman controlled the action against the southpaw Echevarria, picking up the pace in each round.  By the third round, Hyland was really pouring it on. With Echevarria taking heavy punishment, the referee called a halt to the contest at 0:45 seconds of the fourth round. Hyland improved to 28-1, while Echevarria drops his fourth straight and is now 11-4.
 
Charles Martin TKO3 Kertson Manswell... American heavyweight hopeful Charles Martin kept his undefeated record intact (18-0-1, 16 KOs) with a third round stoppage of Trinidad's Kertson Manswell (24-9). The former 2012 National PAL champion and 2012 National Golden Gloves runner-up controlled the action against the free-swinging Manswell, who did connect with a few haymakers that got Martin's attention.  But in the third, Martin dropped Manswell with a hard straight left hand from his southpaw stance. After three knockdowns, the contest was stopped. source for both results: dibella entertainment

 MAYWEATHER PROMOTIONS OBTAINS NEVADA LICENSE

According to respected boxing writer David Mayo on MLive.com, Mayweather Promotions has just been licensed as a promoter by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Reportedly, the vote to license Mayweather Promotions was unanimous. Mayweather is scheduled to fight Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas on September 13th. It had been announced that Golden Boy would be the promoter of record for the fight, which came as a surprise because Mayweather ally Richard Schaefer recently left Golden Boy. Now that his company is licensed, it should not come as a surprise if Mayweather terminates Golden Boy's contract to promote the September 13th. --Scott Shaffer

 DAILY BREAD MONDAY EDITION: (7-21-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Did you get a chance to see any of the press conferences for Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana II? Who do you favor in the rematch? I have talked to alot of people who tell me after watching the fight again, they see what you saw. A super close fight and a fight Maidana could have won. I also want to ask you about Floydís beef with TI the rapper. Do you think this is staged or real? And what do you make of the glove controversy. Does Maidana have a legitmate issue?
Breadís Response: In the rock, paper, scissors of boxing, the pressure swarmer can usually do well with the pure boxer. Henry Armstrong and Harry Greb, the two best swarmers ever, always beat the boxers. If Maidana can get back in the same shape he was in for the first fight or better I think the fight will be super close again. This reminds me of Andre Ward vs. Sakio Bika. That was Wardís toughest fight. Look at it on Youtube. Ward is clearly the better fighter. But that style of swarming, which is hitting anything, not just clean areas but all areas, roughhousing and being fully determined, can give any boxer problems.

RIGONDEAUX-LOOKNONGYANGTOY ENDS SOMEWHAT LIKE MAYWEATHER-ORTIZ
By Scott Shaffer

Guillermo Rigondeaux KO1 Sod Looknongyangtoy... In Macao, China, world 122-pound champion Guillermo Rigondeaux shed his reputation as a boring boxer by knocking out Thailand's Sod looknongyangtoy a/k/a Sod Kokietgym in the first round. In the first round, the Cuban Rigondeaux accidentally headbutted the Thai, sending Looknongyangtoy to one knee. When Looknongyangtoy got up, he extended his glove towards the incoming Rigonedeaux. Although he touched gloves, Rigondeaux immediately fired a lightning quick combination before the Thai boxer reset his defense. The combination landed and Looknongyangtoy wnet down for a ten count. The ending was reminiscient of, but not quite as flagrant, as Floyd Mayweather's 2100 knockout of Victor Ortiz. Unlike Mayweather, Rigondeaux did not deceive his opponent into dropping his guard, but both Ortiz and Looknongyangtoy failed to observe boxing's cardinal rule of defense: protect yourself at all times. Rigondeaux, who has been criticized for being boring, was anything but boring in tonight's brief appearance. His promotional contract with Top Rank is up, and tonight's win should add interest to a man whose skills make him a top five pound-for-pounder. source:
