Press Release: Ricky Burns (40-5-1) will defend his WBA 140-pound title against the undefeated but painfully untested Kiryl Relikh at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Friday October 7th, live on Sky Sports. The Belarussian Relikh (21-0) is trained by British boxing legend Ricky Hatton and Burns expects a serious test as he looks to line up a super-fight once he’s dealt with the 26 year-old.  “Relikh is a very tough fight as a first defense. He’s got a high KO ratio [19 in 21 fight] so he will be very dangerous throughout. Trust me he has my undivided attention and I will have to be at my best to get through this."

Press Release: Pro boxing comes to the Hall Omnisport in Rebecq, Belgium on Sunday September 11th when reigning Belgian welterweight champion Cedric Tita, a hard-hitting 35-year-old Southpaw from Liege, will take on Polish-based Ukrainian Mykola Vovk (10-1 with 7 KOs).

Kindele is 7-5 with 3 KOs but  has lost to only good opposition.

MARRIAGA STOPS ROBB IN 6 FOR NABO BELT

Miguel Marriaga TKO6 Guy Robb: Miguel Marriaga claimed the vacant NABO featherweight title in a very entertaining bout between once beaten World Boxing Organization rated contenders. Robb entered the ring on a eleven fight winning streak following his lone loss to Joel Diaz Jr and was game as always, but he was never really able to avoid Marriaga's right hand throughout the action. In round six a series of right hand sent Robb to the canvas and referee Russell Mora appropriately stopped the bout. Official time of stoppage was 2:06 Jose Felix TKO6 Robert Frankel: As expected. World rated lightweight Jose Felix tuned up nicely, stopping rugged journeyman Robert Frankel in the co-main event. Official time was 2:26

PERALTA UPSETS GUERRERO, TIME FOR GHOST TO DISPPEAR
By G. Leon

Another boxing staple retired by the ring tonight!

David Peralta SD 12 Robert Guerrero: Argentine welterweight David Peralta pulled off a huge upset over Robert Guerrero in the main event of PBC boxing on Spike TV. Guerrero who has won titles in multiple weight divisions, fought the who's who of his era, and will likely end up in the Intenatiional Boxing Hall Of Fame, is clearly no longer anywhere near his prime. To his credit, Peralta used a superior strategy and effective  ring generalship to clearly earn the victory. Expect Peralta's next bout to take place against Adrien Broner, Shawn Porter, Keith Thurman or Errol Spence. Boxingtalk scored the bout 115-113 Peralta. Official scores were 115-113 Guerrero and 115-113 and 116-112 Peralta. Source: Spike

HERNANDEZ CRUISES TO UD OVER ANGULO
By G. Leon

Another unfortunate reminder of how the ring retires fighters

 
Freddy Hernandez UD10 Alfredo Angulo: As expected, and much to the delight of the hundreds in attendance, Alfredo Angulo and Freddy Hernndez left all their defense in the dressing room. Angulo's best days are well behind him and Freddy Hernandez helped remind everyone of this fact by taking control of most of the action for the first five six rounds. Angulo cut Hernadez with a perfectly timed right hand in the fifth round, and he had a very solid sixth and seventh frames as well. Boxingtalk scored the bout 97-93 for Hernandez and sincerely hopes Angulo retires. Official scores were Source: 98-92 and 97-93 twice. Source: Spike

GAUSHA ESCAPES WITH MD OVER MARTINEZ
By G. Leon

Terrell Gausha MD10 Steve Martinez: Terrell Gausha and Steven Martinez provided boxing fans a professionally fought junior middleweight bout over ten very competitive rounds in the opening of PBC boxing on Spike TV. Martinez, 16-3 (13), got off to a fast start and was dictating the pace with his jab. Although he was taking pictures with nearly every thrown punch, Gausha was never really able to capitalize on the flaw. Martinez appeared to tire during the middle rounds, and the 2012 Olympian took full advantage of the Bronx native's fatigue and began to gain control on the action. Going into the last two rounds the fight was up for grabs and Gausha may have done enough to earn a victory, but Boxingtalk scored it 96-94 Martinez.  Official scores were 95-95, and 97-93 Gausha, 19-0 (9) twice. Source: Spike TV

 MAYFIEL WANTS EYUBAR REMATCH: I WAS ROBBED

 Having had a week to consider his controversial decision loss to Kazakhstan's Bakhtiyar Eyubov (11-0, 10 KOs), San Francisco welterweight Karim Mayfield says he's not happy.Fighting in the opening fight on ShoBox: The New Generation® last Friday, August 19, at Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, New York, Mayfield (19-4-1, 11 KOs) appeared to outpunch and outwork his unbeaten foe, especially in the last four rounds. Despite having the statistical advantage - and winning in the eyes of the Showtime commentators, most of the ringside media, the fans in attendance and a worldwide outcry - Mayfield found himself on the wrong side of a 10-round split decision (95-94 twice for Eyubov and 95-94 for Mayfield) at the end of their exciting battle.
