TIM HUNT the new PABA Welterweight CHAMPION

Keep an eye on this space, story coming soon....

 

 

Fights at Powerhouse Albert Park 18th. Aug. 2012
PABA welterweight Title Fight
Tim Hunt, Australian welterweight Champion heads the bill at Powerhouse, Albert Park, Victoria. Tim is one of Australia's promising international fighters, he just lost a split decision to Rivan Cessaire for the IBO Asia Pacific welterweight title. Cessaire has only lost 3 out of 21 fights and 20 have been in the UK.
Tim should do well as he has the boxing skill and enough experience to handle his opponent.

Green beats Santiago but tight-lipped on future
Danny Green remains tight-lipped on his boxing future - but his win tonight over Danny Santiago certainly seemed to have an element of "final farewell" to it.
Green had already said the Santiago bout, a fifth round TKO win, would be his final outing in Perth. But speculation remains that Green will hang up the gloves for good.
"I'm just going to relax and enjoy it," Green said when asked ringside where he would head after tonight.
However, Green's keenness to thank his loyal fan base after the fight will do nothing to quell the talk that a permanent retirement - he previously had a hiatus in 2008 - would be on the cards.

"This was for you," Green told the crowd.

"I fought for you guys. I think I can say I proudly represented my state and country. I nearly died in here [the ring] a couple of times."
Green paid tribute to his trainer Angelo Hyder, who he labelled the "best in the world".

Fights at Grand Star Receptions by Fightcard Promotions

Altona North Friday 20th. July

Fightcard Promotions layed out a star studded venue at the Grand Star Receptions which was second to none and they are fast becoming one of Melbourne's leading Boxing event promoters. The layout was first class and the night went very smoothly. This is great for the Boxing game, YVB congratulate Adam Wilcock who is the key man at Fightcard Promotions.

 

MAIN EVENT

8 rounds
Blake Caparello Won TKO Round 2 over Dante Craig.

A huge roar by Blake Caparello's fans from city and country towns some of which were family nearly brought the house down.

Dante Craig is a veteran of 33 fights and former holder of the NBA Intercontinental Middleweight Title, he had fought for the USBA Light Middleweight title in Oct. 2006. Blake knocked Dante down briefly in round 2 with no count applied. Blake followed up with a concentrated effort to end the fight 1 min 51 sec into the round as Dante was in no shape to fight on.

Caparello is Australia's latest unnoticed super champion, he takes it all in an easy manner and is in no rush as he is still at a young age for his Light heavyweight physique but before too long he is running out of fighters at this level and will be forced to step up to the next level where he will meet bigger guns and the writer believes he will succeed, all in good time.

 

Vacant Australian Light Welterweight title

10 rounds x 3
Addisu Tebebu Won TKO Round 7 Todd Kidd

Todd Kidd had good skills he didn't use properly so he paid the price and it was high.

Addisu Tebebu a former Olympian was extremely rangy with weighty punching and fighting him at a distance was suicidal as he was very potent with his two main punches straight lefts and rights slightly hooked. Todd did very well when up close but he moved backwards just as he outboxes Addisu on every occasion.

During mid 5th round Todd went down briefly from a sharp right with no count and Addisu landed three more good rights until the round was over.

Round 6 nearly saw Todd gaining a win, scoring a knockdown for a count of 8 but Addisu saw the round out.

By round 7 Todd slowed up a little, but, enough to give his opponent the opportunity to land his potent lefts and rights he used from the distance and Todd went down. These punches put Todd into a shaky and indefensible state at 2 min 28 sec of the round and the referee had no choice but to stop the fight and save Todd Kidd as he was in no shape to fight on.

WBC Female Bantamweight Title

Susie Ramadan vs Usanacorn Kokietgym 10 rounds x 2

Susie Ramadan showed amazing skill beating Usanacorn Kokietgym for the Women's WBC World Bantamweight Title.

Susie secured the first round with early action while Usanacorn was slow starting but made up for it by improving her work in round 2.

Round 3 Ramadan picked up the pace and scored well with multiple left leads followed by well placed rights to the chin and the body.

Usanacorn always looked like making good attacks but Susie kept answering with well placed punching which kept her very well in front on points.

Victor from YVB tried to make contact with Dr Lewis regarding the possibility of Usanicorn being either male or certainly full of male testosterone but was rudely ignored at the time. It was possible that the doctor had other things in mind.
Official result = bantamweight Susie Ramadan 22(8)-1-0 W Usanakorn Kokietgym 11(10)-1-0 UD 10 10

Malvern promises a good fight-night

See fight-card

KNOX NETBALL CENTRE
25th. May 2012

Promoter Murray Thomson back on the scene putting together fightnights that boxing fans like to see.
Murray is a very dedicated trainer and his houseful of boys in training along with girl boxers show this through their enthusiasm for the workouts they are led to do.
Friday night's card stood out while it ran as all the fights were good shows.
by Young Victor


MAIN EVENT 8 rounds
Freddie Tukes vs Alex Ahtong 8 rounds -
win points Freddie Tukes

The first round was a feeler with either boxer both southpaws not taking any risks, this is understandable due to the age factor, Ahtong 35 and Tukes 39 but what followed was a good display of clean boxing which seems to be getting forgotten about these days.
In the second round Tukes took a left hook to the jaw and went down in rather slow motion, this seems to have got him because Alex Ahtong is a very rangy fighter and although very lean he does throw long crisp punches and Freddie made the mistake of holding his arms rather too low.
Alex Ahtong put up a very good show but seemed to lack condition because he had little time to prepare for the fight as he told YVB after the fight in the change rooms.
Freddie showed he is a colorful boxer with bopping and weaving being his style as he delivers punches.
Both fighters deserve credit shown by the fans that gave them a good ovation.

UnderCard

6 rounds

Zac Dunn vs Marlon Toby - Dunn win TKO round 1

A huge body punch by Dunn Put Toby down for a count of 8. Dunn didn't waste any time, he cornered Toby in a neutral corner who offered little resistance, his corner man wasted little time in throwing the towel in at 2:17 of the first round.

6 rounds

Phil Randis vs Codey Cawthorn i Randis win points.

Both fighters did well in the first round with good punch placing.

The second round saw both fighters trying very hard but missing mostly due to this.

4 rounds

Rex Regalado vs Ben Capps - win points.

Regalado a round-arm puncher started well but seemed to get evened by Capps by the time the first round was over.

Capps improved from the 2nd round onwards with good straight lefts and rights to the upper body and kept it up in the 3rd round.

Regaldo appeared quite frequently in punch landing of the last round but Ben Capps scored well on points with more accurate punching.
4 rounds
Brian Olman vs Dayo Iyiola. - Olman win points.

Both fighters fought evenly in the first 3 rounds with inexperienced tangling.

Electricity at Malvern Town Hall

Set up by boxing promoter and TV channel 31 host Peter Maniatis.

30th Mar 2012

By Young Victor

Knockouts, tko's, knockdowns, roaring and standing ovations were the highlights of the night.

OPBF Light Heavyweight Title 12 rounds

Manny Vlamis normally a hugely heavy puncher and a very crowd pleaser came out cautiously but already showing his aggressive style towards Togasilimai Letoa throughout the first round which ended evenly.

The second round exposed Letoa to be very well equipped with a good defense and boxing style.

Letoa got caught with very heavy punching by Vlamis and showed he was in some trouble but managed to recover very quickly and handed his own good punches which tolled on Vlamis.

Letoa by this stage got on top of Vlamis and sent him to the canvas just before the bell ending round two.

Early in the third round Letoa continued serving punishment with Vlamis fighting back with his huge heart but Letoa by now was well on top and scored with a huge right.

Vlamis was shaken and in no position to defend well but still standing, a small cut above his eye was also evident as his trainer Brian Levier waved a stoppage to the event.

Victorian Light Heavyweight Title 8 rounds

A thrilling fight from round one started with great body punching by Callan Orchard which won him round

one despite a very good tight defense and good boxing style and ability by Lyndon Edney.

In round 2 Callan was as good but was tagged by  a beautiful right hand and looked shakey.

In round 3 Callan landed a flurry of good punches where Lyndon went down but no count applied by the referee.

Round 4 saw Callan improve and was landing aggressively scoring very well.

Rounds 5, 6 showed Callan still outpointing Lyndon.

In round 7 Lyndon improved his scoring and the fight looked like it could have a turn around but Callan gathered himself to hold well.

In the last round Callan held well and kept his effort going despite his good points lead.

A standing ovation was the way fight fans rewarded these two boxers which left nothing missing in what was a very good fight. Mr. Mick Gatto a sponsor of the Peter Maniatis Events generously added on to the fighters purse $1000 each which they deserved. As heard in the change rooms, John McCubbin, trainer said Callan Orchard is putting the extra cash towards the house he is intending to purchase.

Mayweather Jr. uses Twitter to goad Pacquiao: "Step up Punk"
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has taken his quest for a fight with Manny Pacquiao to Twitter.
The unbeaten Mayweather publicly challenged and taunted the Filipino superstar on Tuesday, daring Pacquiao to meet him May 5 in Las Vegas.
"Manny Pacquiao I'm calling you out let's fight May 5th and give the world what they want to see," Mayweather tweeted.

Moments later, Mayweather tweeted: "My Jail Sentence was pushed back because the date was locked in. Step up Punk."
Mayweather is available for a fight in May at the MGM Grand Garden after Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa agreed last week to postpone his jail sentence in a domestic violence case until June. Mayweather was sentenced to 87 days in jail, but likely will serve less time.
Mayweather and Pacquiao are boxing's top two stars, and they have circled each other warily for more than two years. Both have said they're eager to fight, yet still haven't reached a deal for what's likely to be the most lucrative bout in boxing history.
While Pacquiao appeared to be more eager for the fight when the two first began verbally sparring in 2009, Mayweather has taken the lead in recent months, stepping up his campaign since Pacquiao's narrow win over Juan Manuel Marquez in November.
