CRAWFORD DOMINATES POSTOL TO UNIFY WBO/WBC TITLES
By G. Leon

Terence Crawford UD12 Viktor Postol: The WBO/WBC junior welterweight unification bout between the two best 140 pounders in the world began at a very measured pace. Neither boxer was eager to engage and there were more feints than punches landed in the opening frame, which likely went to the aggresor Postol. Crawford, 29-0 (20), outboxed Postol, 28-1 (12) in round two, but Postol regained control of the distance in round three. Round four belonged to Crawford, who dropped Postol with a check hook in the opening moments of the fifth round and scored a second knockdown when Postol's glove touched the canvas about a minute later giving the Nebraskan a commanding lead on the cards. Crawford outlanded Postol agsin in the sixth. Both fighters appeared to take a rest in round seven as only thirteen punches were landed between both boxers, but it was still another Crawford round. It was pretty much the Terence Crawford show from the fifth round on. He swept each and every round and round 11 was a two point round for Crawford when Postol lost a point for rabbit punching. Boxingtalk scored it 118-107. Official scores were 118-107 twice and 117-108. Source: HBOPPV

BENAVIDEZ STAYS UNBEATEN WITH UD OVER SANTANA
By G. Leon

Jose Benavidez UD10 Francisco Santana: The first three rounds of this fight were all action. Jose Benavidez was in control of the first two frames landing stiff jabs and thunderous uppercuts. Most of round three, Francisco Santana's first on Boxingtalk's card, could have been fought in a phone booth with Santana, 24-5-1 (12) doing most of the work. Benavidez Jr was content to lay on the ropes for the majority of rounds three and four. Benavidez, 25-0 (16) had a solid fifth round, and Santana outworked Benavidez along the ropes in the sixth round. Round seven could have gone either way, but Boxingtalk gave the slight edge to Santana due to his workrate. Benavidez found a way to regain control of the distance in round eight and swept each of the final three rounds on this scribe's card for a 96-94 advantage. Official scores were a ridiculous 100-90 (Adalaide Byrd), 98-92, (Glenn Feldman) 96-94. Source: HBO PPV

There was a heated exchange at the end of round five but it was anoter Gvozdyk round. Karpency was hit with a body shot in round six and decided to take a knee for the full ten count.

By G. Leon

Mendez did his best early, but was taking more punches than he was able to land. The fight became more and more one sided with each passing round and probably should have been stopped sooner.

In round nine, with Khytrov scoring on Mendez with nearly every power punch thrown, referee Joe Lupino stepped in and mercifully stopped the bout.

 BRONER SENTENCED TO 30 DAYS IN JAIL
By Scott Shaffer

Adrien Broner, the troubled three-division titleholder, was sentenced the thirty days in jail in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Broner was scheduled to go on trial for robbery and assault trials stemming from an incident in which he allegedly beat up a man to recover money that the mon had won from Broner while the two were gambling. Broner showed up late for the trial, and according to Cincinnati.com, offered the lame excuse that someone put something in his drink the night before. The judge then sentenced Broner to thirty days in jail for contempt of court. Ironically, had he shown up on time, Broner might have avoided the criminal charges. The alleged victim of Broner's crimes did not show up in court, so the case against Broner would have been hared to prove. Broner, just 26 years old, has sent his own career in a downward spiral.  He won his last fight in April, but was stripped of the WBA 140-pound title for failing to make weight.

OSCAR VALDEZ'S TITLE QUEST
By Bill Dwyre

As of mid-afternoon Tuesday, ÓSCAR VALDEZ knew he was fighting Saturday night in the co-main event of the Terence Crawford - Viktor Postol boxing card.  What he didn’t know was exactly what he was fighting for, other than a nice paycheck and another step forward in his career. His was the World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight (126 pounds) title fight that maybe wasn’t going to be a title fight.  And maybe it was.  With three days to go before the event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, there was a hint of Abbott and Costello and “Who’s on First.”

 PRO BOXING SET FOR BAYONNE, NJ ON AUGUST 27TH

On August 27th, pro boxing will return to Bayonne, New Jersey at the Bayonne Pavillion. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.lgmpromo.eventbrite.com. The main event is slated to feature Luis "Orlandito" Del Valle (22-2) against an opponent who has not yet been named. Del Valle is a 122 pounder who has won four in a row. As a teenager, he left his native Puerto Rico for Newburgh, NY where he resided for seven years. During his time in the Empire State, he captured the 2004 National Golden Gloves title. As a pro, Del Valle had his first fight in New Jersey and fought many times in New York and Connecticut. Overall, half of his 24 professional fights took place in the tri-state area and the bilingual Del Valle built a solid fan following. However, he hasn’t fought in the area since 2012. “I love fighting in the tri-state area,” said Del Valle. "I had a lot of great moments when I lived in New York and miss the local crowds. The support was great and there is a very large Puerto Rican population in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. I’ve still got a lot of fans in the area and they always ask me when I’m fighting locally again... I’m hoping to fight for a world title in the near future and defend it in the tri-state area.”

In the ring I had to get my rhythm."Soliman came out nervous and not very coordinated, but that's the way he usually fights. That's his style. "I'm going to keep moving forward. I can't sit and wait.
