RONNIE SHIELDS: JERMALL CHARLO WILL BE BACK IN AUGUST!
By G. Leon

Lara coach talks Hurd rematch, Charlo's brutal KO and more

Congrats on Charlo's victory over Hugo Centeno last night. Can you give us some thoughts on his performance? "I think he did great man. He followed the game plan. He felt him out in the first round, and after the first round I just told him to get on top of him and don't let him move around. Put that pressure on him, let those combinations go and he did and before you knew it it was boom with the left hook."

POST-FIGHT INTERVIEW: RICHARDSON HITCHINS
By G. Leon

Congrats on your victory over Alexander Charneco (4-5) last night, can you give us some thoughts on your performance? "I feel like it was a good performance. I executed it the way the coaches wanted me to. I came out fast and I went to the body to get him out of there." It's funny because your first two six rounders have ended earlier than your fours. I know you don't get paid by the round, but are you hoping you're soon facing somebody that's able to last the six or will be more durable? "Definitely. My next fight hopefully goes the full six rounds. It's funny because when you get the knockout they say well he still hasn't gone the whole six, but then when you don't get the knockout they want you to get them out of there. Hopefully the next one lasts a little longer, but it's like you said I don't get paid for overtime."

Canadian tops Damian E. Bonelli via decision

Congrats on your recent victory over Damian Ezequiel Bonelli (23-3). Can you give us some thoughts on your performance? "You know what? I was pretty happy with my performance. The guy was tougher than I thought he was going to be, he was durable. He didn't really hit me with anything and I was able to hit him with pretty much anything I wanted. I actually hurt my hand a little bit on the guy's head, but I fought the fight smart and I got the victory."

Jessie Vargas: "I thought I won the fight," Vargas said. "At the end of the day I can't argue because I was fighting on the inside of the ring so I don't know what you saw from the outside. I was landing clean blows. It was a good fight but at the end of the day I can't dispute the decision. It must have been a close fight for the judges to have scored it the way they did. I felt that I won the fight and I was up two rounds. I'm relying on the judges to make the right decision."

DONAIRE GOING TO DROP DOWN IN WEIGHT

Frampton and Donaire form mutual admiration society

Carl Frampton defeated former four-division champion Nonito Donaire in Belfast in clear, but difficult victory. Donaire lot by three scores of 117-111 but showed glimpses of why he was named the consensus 2012 Fighter of the Year, landing a vicious uppercut in the seventh and a big left hand in the latter stages of round eleven that hurt Frampton. Afterwards, the fighters showed great respect to each other on social media. Frampton tweeted, "A gentleman, warrior, legend and now friend for life. Thank you for sharing the ring with me." Donaire responded on Facebook, "First of all, always want to thank God for keeping me safe in that ring.  Not taking anything away from Frampton.  He is an amazing fighter, smart and a tough mf! Like he said to me "friends forever" Congratulations my brother may you continue to be on top. My team, family, and Ringstar will have a meeting but I think it has already been pre-decided that although I have done my best to gain weight and keep my weight on and strong, it's best I move back down in weight."

BRONER-VARGAS ENDS IN DRAW
By G. Leon

Adrien Broner D12 Jessie Vargas: It was a fantastic action fight fought at an above average pace and it could have gone either way. Adrien Broner landed a large percentage of his power shots per usual and Jessie Vargas was more active, which was to be expected. After twelve rounds two of the three judges scored the bout a draw, which was difficult to argue with. Vargas, 28-2-1 with 10 KOs, got off to a fast start and won at least four of the last year rounds, but Broner, 33-3-1 with 24 KOs, came on very strong in the second half of the fight and took at least four of the final six frames. Vargas was cut over his left eye late in the fight. Had Broner let his hands go sooner, this would not have been a difficult fight to score. Boxingtalk agreed with Julie Lederman who scored it 115-113, but was obviously overruled by her two counterparts. Showtime's Steve Farhood agreed wth the draw. Source: Showtime

TANK DAVIS MAKES STATEMENT DESTROYS CUELLAR FOR WBA STRAP
By G. Leon

Gervonta Davis TKO3 Jesus Cuellar: Cuellar came out aggressive, but thirty seconds into the bout Gervonta Davis took control of the center of the ring. Shortly thereafter he took away Cuellar's jab with crisp counter punching, stinging the Argentine with uppercuts and hooks, hurting him to the body towards the end of the first round. Davis, 20-0 (19KO), dropped Cuellar with a body shot midway through the round, but to his credit he finished the round without getting into any other serious trouble. Just when it looked like the third round was going to be the closest of the fight, Davis unloaded a fierce combination and finished with another straight left hand to the body that sent Cuellar, 28-3 (21KO), down again. He made it to his feet, but was decked for a third time and referee Benji Esteves stopped the fight. Tank's body work tonight was off the charts in this statement making win.

FRAMPTON TAKES UNANIMOUS DECISION OVER DONAIRE
By Scott Shaffer

Carl Frampton W12 Nonito Donaire... In Belfast, Northern Ireland, former two-division champion Carl Frampton added a big name to his resume, defeating former multi-division champion Nonito Donaire.  Frampton won a unanimous decision by three scores of 117-111, acquiring the WBO interim featherweight title in the process.  After 43 pro fights, Donaire's best days are behind him, but beating him is still an accomplishment.  Frampton's effective boxing and sharp punching started marking up Donaire's face early on.  An accidental headbutt caused a cut over Donaire's right eye midway through the fight, but Donaire gave a decent account of himself and landed several good uppercuts throughout the fight. Frampton is now 25-1, while Donaire is 38-5. source: showtime

KHAN EMBARRASSES LO GRECO IN 40 SECONDS
By Scott Shaffer

Amir Khan TKO1 Phil Lo Greco... Out of action for nearly two years, Amir Khan needed just 40 seconds to stop overmatched Phil Lo Greco in Liverpool, England on Saturday. Khan hadn't fought since getting KO'd by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in 2016 and hadn't won since facing Chris Algieri in 2015.  Khan did not break a sweat vs. Lo Greco. With Lo Greco flailing defensively, Khan knocked him down with one of the very first rights he threw in the fight. Lo Greco wasn't hurt, but the look on his face said he had no answer for Khan's speed.  Four hard punches later and Lo Greco was down again. The referee stopped it without a count. Lo Greco could have gotten up and absorbed a few more punches, but 40 seconds showed he's not in Khan's class. The exciting Khan is now 32-4 and hopefully will be back in the ring very soon against tougher competition. Lo Greco, who got this fight by talking trash about Khan on line heads back to Canada with his tail between his legs at 28-4. source: fight video on twitter

ESPN2 RESULTS FROM PUERTO RICO

Lamont Roach Jr. D10 Orlando Cruz ...In San Juan Puerto Rico on ESPN2 on Thursday, Lamont Roach Jr. of Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico's Orlando Cruz fought to a controversial draw. One judge had the fight 97-93 for Roach, another for Cruz 96-94 and a third had it 95-95. Roach seems to have been the victim of a hometown ruling, as he appeared to knock down Cruz in round nine, only to have the Puerto Rican referee (Luis Pabon) rule it a slip. A 10-8 round for Roach would have swung the verdict in his favor. Roach is now 16-0-1, and Cruz is 25-6-2. 

Jose Lopez W10 Miguel Angel Gonzalez Also on the card, junior lightweight Jose Lopez defeated Miguel Angel Gonzalez via ten-round unanimous decision.  Official scores were 97-93 and 99-91 (twice).

A FEW OBSERVATIONS FROM THE SHOWTIME PRESSER
By G. Leon

So here's some interesting things I picked up on during today's press conference for the Showtime triple header headlined by the Adrien Broner-Jessie Vargas fight. 

-Leonard Ellerbe only said the phrase "without further ado" twice today...he sure does like saying that. Fortunately he didn't introduce all of the boxers.

-Lou DiBella said the words "top to bottom" a bit too much for my taste, but otherwise handled himself with the panache of a veteran promoter as he talked up the show.

-Adrien Broner doesn't seem to care for Mr. Ellerbe much.

-Based on how he couldn't stop dancing in his seat, I wanted AB's playlist, until he put the headphones over the mic...talk about soft ass shit!

-Seeing Jermall Charlo on the B side of the podium was interesting. He and Hugo Centeno Jr have never looked more out of place.

-Jessie Vargas was all business and dressed to a t, but his hands must've been freezing...leather gloves dude? NY weather ain't for you, or there's something off with one of your hands. Hopefully it's not the latter.

-Speaking of all business...Tank Davis doesn't think Cuellar will go the distance and I agree with him.

-Adrien Broner's actions can be viewed as classless, classic or perhaps a combination of the two...but there's no disputing he's one of the most captivating boxers in the world.

-No other network has done a better job of taking boxing to new heights than Showtime and Stephen Espinoza. Don't believe me? Just ask him...this just in, Boxingtalk can confirm that no other network has held a more entertaining presser in the last four hours, fifty five minutes and....

REPORT: OGAWA STRIPPED OF IBF TITLE

Farmer vs. Dib likely to fill the vacancy

According to the Japan Times, IBF 130-pound champion Kenichi Ogawa of Japan has been stripped of his title and suspended for six months for failing a doping test.  The positive test was taken around the time Ogawa won a very controversial decision over Tevin Farmer to claim the vacant title. The suspension was issued yesterday by the Nevada Athletic Commission.  Farmer certainly deserves a shot at the once-again vacant title, and it appears likely he will be matched against former featherweight titlist Billy Dib to fill the vacancy. Farmer's promoter Lou DiBella told Boxingtalk's Greg Leon, "we're working on [Farmer vs. Dib] now and trying to figure out where exactly the fight would be. Billy Dib's people want to do the fight in Australia and obviously we don't, but the fight is going to happen and it's a great opportunity for Tevin to avenge that terrible decision as well as the failed drug test afterwards." --Scott Shaffer

GGG SEEKS IBF EXCEPTION TO FIGHT MARTIROSYAN
By G. Leon

GGG Promotions managing director Tom Loeffler confirmed to Boxingtalk that undisputed middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin is about ante up and pay the IBF a non-refundable $20,000 with the hopes of getting an exception to take part in a bout vs. Vanes Martirosyan without getting stripped (GGG also holds the WBC championship and WBA super championship). If the IBF were to grant this exception Golovkin would not be stripped of his title, it simply wouldn't be on the line for the May 5th Martirosyan bout, but it's likely that undefeated top contender Serhiy Derevyanchenko would be deemed the immediately due mandatory challenger.  This would also mean that the IBF title will not be on the line if the Alvarez rematch gets rescheduled for September 15th, because according to IBF rules reigning champions are limited to one exception request . Once filed, Derevyanchenko promoter Lou DiBella will have 72 hours to object to Golovkin's request. Remember where you heard it first!
