 DOES JIMMY LENNON JR. TIP CERTAIN RESULTS?

The single most important job of a ring announcer is to preserve the identity of the winner of the bout until he or she reads the very last of the three judges; scorecards.  Unfortunately, because of how Jimmy Lennon, Jr. chooses to announce scores, there are instances when he gives away the result after reading the second scorecard, and here is how:

 UPDATE: WBF CHANGES MATHIS DQ TO NO CONTEST

Anne Sophie Mathis NC Christine Hammer...  In a very significant women's bout, Christina Hammer was announced as the winner of a junior middleweight bout against Anne Sophie Mathis (27-4) on Saturday night. The initial verdict in Dessau, Germany was a fifth round disqualification in Dessau, Germany. The fight was fairly even until the end came in round five, when during a clinch, Mathis landed a series of punches that referee Manfred Keuchler saw as being behind the head of Hammer. Hammer (18-0) went down, and when she was unable to continue after getting to her feet, Keuchler ruled the bout a disqualification victory for the German Hammer. Update: While the local boxing commission has the auhtority to determine the official result, on Monday the organization that sanctioned the bout for its title, the WBF, declared the bout a no contest. The official result, at least for now remains a DQ win for Hammer because the local commission has not changed the result, but the WBF title reverts back to Mathis. A rematch has been recommended.

 DAILY BREAD MONDAY EDITION: (7-28-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

GGG & Jennings Victory Recaps & More.....

On Saturday, Bryant. Jennings, who I was excited about, was at most moments, boring and unimpressive, Yes I know HBO reminded us many times how raw and inexperienced he is
at this point in his career.  While he squeaked by with a win over Mike Perez, I find it hard to think he has enough time to make up for his lack of amateur pedigree , plus he lacks real power (only 10 knock outs). I know he is a Philly brotha and we all want to love him but the truth is the truth. I hope he can really pick up his punch rate and stop thinking so much. My gut is that isn't something you can fix. He just needs another 20 plus fights. I don't think he is going to give Wladimir Klitschko any problems.

Speaking of problems, my boy Gennady "GGG" Golovkin isn't a problem... he is a nightmare. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I believe he flat out murders Miguel Cotto. I hope that fight isn't made because Miguel took a bad enough beating in his life a few years ago. I would much rather see him fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Andre Ward or Carl Froch even though Carl looks like he wants to avoid him like an IRS audit. -- Fenster

ROY JONES HAS NOW FOUGHT PROFESSIONALLY IN 26 CONSECUTIVE YEARS
By Scott Shaffer

Roy Jones TKO6 Courtney Fry... Fighting in Latvia, boxing legend Roy Jones showed a quick flash of his old self, knocking journeyman Courtney Fry down with a left in the fifth round. Fry quit on his stool rather than come out for the sixth round, giving the 45 year-old Jones a modest four-fight winning streak over mediocre opposition. Jones (58-8) has fought at least once in every year since 1989, a 26-year streak that is the second longest active streak in boxing (Luis "Yori Boy" Campas has fought every year since 1987; Bernard Hopkins turned pro in 1988 but did not fight in 1989; James Toney did not turn pro until 1990 and sat out 2010). Fry has now lost three in a row and his ledger falls to 18-6.

GOLOVKIN TAKES OUT GEALE IN SPECTACULAR FASHION
By Scott Shaffer

Gennady Golovkin TKO3 Daniel Geale... Gennady "GGG" Golovkin is not the lineal world middleweight champion, but after his latest performance, not too many experts would dispute his status as the best 160-pound boxer inthe world today. Golovkin defeated world-class operator Daniel Geale in spectacular fashion at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Saturday. Geale was cut in the first round and down in the second before succumbing to Golovkin's punishment in the third round. Geale did a decent job slipping Golovkin's punches, but the punches kept coming, and it only took a few to hurt Geale. The end came, oddly enough, when Golovkin absorbed a stiff punch from Geale. Without missing a heartbeat, Golovkin immediately launched the deciding punch of the fight, a hard right that floored Geale for the second knockdown of the bout. Geale went down hard, and beat the count, but shook his head no when the referee asked him if he was alright. Geale, now 30-3, was a former IBF and WBA titlist who had only lost twice previously, but both times by split decision. Against Golovkin, he was completely outclassed. Golovkin is now 30-0 and has barely shown any vulnerabilities. A true world middleweight championship fight between Golovkin and the lineal champion, Miguel Cotto, would be a fight fan's dream, but Golovkin looks so tough that it is hard to imagine Cotto taking the fight. source: hbo

JENNINGS SQUEAKS BY PEREZ

Bryant Jennings W12 Mike Perez... On the Madison Square Garden show, Bryant Jennings won an important heavyweight bout by the slimmest of margins, as a point deduction swung the verdict from a draw to a win. Referee Harvey Dock docked Perez one point in the final round for hitting on the break, and the penalty cost Perez a draw. Official scores were 115-112 and 114-113 for Jennings and 114-113 for Perez. The fight was a WBC eliminator, but WBC titlist Bermane Stiverne has an injured hand, and after that, a fight against Deontay Wilder, so Jennings will likely wait until 2015 for a title shot.

TYSON FURY THE HYPOCRITE PULLS OUT ON DAY OF FIGHT

Tyson Fury, the same man who mercilessly ridiculed David Haye and Dereck Chisora for pulling out of fights with injuries, has now done the very same thing himself. Three days ago, when Chisora pulled out of today's scheduled fight with a hand injury, Fury tweeted: "these 2 are the biggest pricks in boxing p*ssys, always knew dell was a sh*thouse. Disgrace to boxing." A very respectable replacement, Alexander Ustinov, signed on to replace Chisora against Fury, and Fury initially accepted the fight. But today, the day of the Manchester, England fight, the BBC reported that Fury's trainer (and uncle) Hughie Fury was hospitalized, and that Tyson refused to proceed with the fight. Lame! Boxingtalk might be a little more sympathetic had Fury not been such a consistent jerk to his opponents. But on behalf of all the disappointed fans, we have to call Fury a hypocrite.   --Scott Shaffer

SHOBOX RESULTS: DOUGLAS-SORO SCORED A DRAW

Michel Soro D10 Antoine Douglas... In Verona, New York, Antoine Douglas and Michel Soro fought to a majority draw with officials scores of 96-94 for Soro and 95-95 twice. The bout was a tale of two halves on Friday’s ShoBox: The New Generation as Douglas (14-0-1, 9 KOs) dominated the first half of the fight. A right hand followed by an onslaught of punches from Soro had Douglas dazed in the seventh, but the Frenchman stepped off the gas and allowed Douglas to escape the round.  Douglas was still struggling as he entered the ninth for the first time in his career and stayed in survival mode for the remainder of the fight. Showtime analyst Steve Farhood agreed a draw was a fair verdict.

Jerry Odom KO7 Vilier Quinonez... Jerry Odom overcame the first cut of his career and knocked out Vilier Quinonez in the seventh round of a match-up of undefeated super middleweights.

Cecil McCalla W8 Oscar Godoy... Cecil McCalla kept his perfect record intact with a dominating eight-round unanimous victory over Oscar Godoy. Official scores were 79-73 and 80-72 (twice). McCalla (19-0, 6 KOs) controlled the pace and tempo from the opening bell, landing over 50 percent of his power shots and 87 body shots to Godoy’s (13-3, 6 KOs) seven.   McCalla went eight rounds for just the third time.

Tony Luis W8 Wanzell Ellison...In the opening bout of the ShoBox telecast, lightweight Tony Luis handed Wanzell Ellison the first loss of his career with an eight-round unanimous decision scored 77-75, 79-73, 78-74. Effective aggressiveness and power punches to the body were the difference for the naturally bigger Luis (18-2, 7 KOs). Ellison (10-1-1, 5 KOs) went eight rounds for the first time in his career and clearly tired in the middle rounds. source for all results: showtime press release

BREAD'S BREAKDOWN OF GOLOVKIN-GEALE AND JENNINGS-PEREZ
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

How good is Gennady "GGG" Golovkin? How good is his trainer? You went up against his trainer in opposing corners. But he got Golovkin only 4 years ago. I also just noticed that Golovkin has 11 title defenses would you consider him a great fighter? What are your predictions for this weekend's HBO's fights between Golovkin and Daniel Geale and the heavyweights, Bryant Jennings vs. Mike Perez? 
Bread’s Response: GGG is extremely good. He is so good that he’s one BIG victory away from being a great fighter. He’s a great fighter in waiting. I hold him in very high regard. For my money if he doesn’t get a chance to fight a great fighter and he stays consistent and keeps beating the “best” available guy then that would make him a great fighter. He can be something special.

ROBERTO GARCIA GETS OFF DECK FOR BIG ESPN2 WIN
By Scott Shaffer

Roberto Garcia W10 Breidis Prescott... In Chicago, Roberto Garcia suffered a ninth-round knockdown but stormed back to dominate the tenth round against Colombia's Breidis Prescott. Both men's face told the tale of a close, rough welterweight fight, but it was clear Prescott was exhausted by the final bell, as he hung onto Garcia in an attempt to limit the damage. The judges scored it 96-93, 95-94 and 96-92 for Garcia. ESPN analyst Teddy Atlas agreed with the verdict, unofficially scoring it 96-93. The win ups Garcia's pro record to 36-3-1. Prescott falls to 27-6 and has never been able to duplicate the success he had when defeating Richar Abril and Amir Khan in back-to-back 2008 fights.

Caleb Truax W10 Derek Ennis... In the ESPN2 co-feature, Minnesota's best boxer, Caleb Truax notched a quality win, defeating Philadelphia's Derek Ennis via unanimous decision. Official scores were 99-90 and 97-93 (twice).  Truax, who suffered a cut over one of his eyes late in the middleweight bout, is now 24-1-2. Truax's lone loss came to a post-championship Jermain Taylor. Ennis, 24-5-1, deserves credit for going the distance after taking the fight on relatively short notice. source: espn2's friday night fights
