GOLOVKIN MAKES QUICK WORK OF RUBIO

Gennady Golovkin KO2 Marco A. Rubio... In Carson, California, Gennady "GGG" Golovkin retained the WBA and IBO middleweight titles with a second-round knockout of Mexico's Marco Antonio Rubio. Golovkin landed a punishing right uppercut followed by a perfectly placed left hook that landed on Rubio's forehead, just above his gloves. Rubio went down on his back and just missed beating the ten count, which seemed a bit quick. It was another highlight reel knockout for Golovkin who is now 31-0 with 28 KOs. While Miguel Cotto holds the true world middleweight  championship, it would be difficult to find a boxing expert who would pick Cotto to beat Golovkin. Rubio falls to 59-7-1. Because he failed to make the middlewieght limit, he could not have won either of Golovkin's titles. source: hbo

CUNNINGHAM KNOCKED DOWN BUT WINS EASY

The Boxingtalk Scoreboard: Results from South Philly

Steve Cunningham TKO8 Natu Visinia... Fighting in his hometown of Philadelphia, Steve Cunningham handed Natu Visinia his first pro loss when Visinia failed to answer the bell for the ninth round of their heavyweight bout. Cunningham, the former world cruiserweight champion was outweighed by 73 pound but controlled the action with superior speed and footwork.  Visinia's raw strength advantage showed itself when Cunningham was knocked down by a punch to the shoulder. Cunningham was not hurt and generally took the action to Visinia for most of the bout. Visinia (10-1) suffered some cuts inside his mouth that made his job tougher. Cunningham is now 28-6 with three wins in a row.

Edner Cherry TKO2 Osumanu Akaba... In South Philadelphia, wild-swinging Edner Cherry knocked Osumanu Akaba down three times in the second round to win thier lightweight bout via technical knockout. After a tentative first round, Cherry's left hand was too quick and too hard for Akaba, a late replacement. Cherry is now 33-6 for his career, including 9-0 with one no contest since losing to Timothy Bradley six years ago. Akaba is now 31-7-1. 

Decarlo Perez TKO5 Tyrone Brunson... Big punching Tyrone Brunson emptied out his gas tank in the second round and had Decarlo Perez on the ropes, but Perez weathered the storm and Brunson tired very quickly, leading to a fifth-round stoppage win for Perez. Brunson never went down, but he was doubled over in exhaustion while Perez rained in unanswered punches forcing the referee to stop the middleweight bout. Perez, from nearby Atlantic City, New Jersey improves to 13-3-1 with this career-best win. After a strong start to his career, Brunson has now lost three of four and is 22-3-1 overall. If Brunson is to have any success, he must figure out what to do when he can't knock his opponent out early. source: nbc sports network

BREAD'S TAKE ON NONITO DONAIRE
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

What is your official pick for this weekend. Iím assuming you have Gennady "GGG" Golovkin defeating Marco Antonio Rubio. For some reason, Iím going with the big Mexican to win by split decision. I think Rubio is a better boxer than people give him credit for and GGG has holes in his defense. I canít call the Nonito Donaire vs. Nicholas Walters fight because Nonitoís wife burns a hole in me. I canít stand nosey women in boxing. "Jin Mosley2" is a pain in the ass and to see her in the ring with Nonito while he was shadowboxing just irked the hell out of me. Without getting into all of the rumors surrounding his personal life, his involvement with her scares me. Women weaken boxers. And she seems to be ruining one of my favorite guys.

 DAILY BREAD FRIDAY EDITION:(10-17-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

You made a point about Sergey Kovalev landing devastating punches without loading up. I'm not saying his gloves are loaded, but would you put it past Nazeem Richardson and Bernard Hopkins to make the dude rewrap his gloves just before their fight next month?  Assuming his gloves aren't loaded and assuming the chess match that Hopkins always plays with opponents, would gamesmanship like this mess with Kovalev's head?

 SALIDO BECOMES WBO CHAMPION BY DECREE

Orlando Salido has earned his warrior stripes many times over, but this week, he got a free pass to a paper championship. The WBO, through its president Paco Valcarcel, handed Salido the WBO title belt in the 130-pound weight class. Salido, who held featherweight titles onmultiple occasions, was handed the title because the prior titlist, Mikey Garcia, is embroiled in a lawsuit with Top Rank over his promotional rights, and Garcia intends to move up to 140 pounds anyway. Garcia has not fought since January and has no fight on the horizon. Garcia beat Salido controversially at 126 pounds in 2013 when Garcia, ahead on points, quit on his stool after eight rounds. The bout was allowed to go to the scorecards when it appeared that Salido, although losing most rounds, should have won by technical knockout because the injury to Garcia was caused by a punch. In any event, Garcia moved up to 130 and took the WBO title from Roman Martinez.  Last month, with Garcia on the sideline due to the lawsuit, Salido defeated Terdsak Kokietgym of Thailand for an interim title. That title has now been updated from interim to full. --Scott Shaffer
