EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: KATHY DUVA
By G. Leon

GL: Can you give us some final thoughts on Saturday night's Kovalev-Shabranskyy card? We're working hard and we're having a good time and it's going to be terrific. GL: Are you expecting to see from Kovalev versus Shabranskyy? Sergey has come back from the experience of last year much wiser and he's basically ready to take back his place at the top of the division. He's got a title fight, he's fighting for the WBO title which is the first one he won, so it's nice to see him coming full circle like that. Shabranskyy is a hard puncher and a formidable opponent. Sergey is very aware of that and he's even more focused than he was for the Ward fight. I think he looks terrific right now and I think things happen for a reason and right now he's sitting on top of what is arguably the deepest division in boxing. There's lots of young, some of them undefeated fighters in the top ten that would all make for great fights because they're all come forward fighters. There's a lot to look forward to and it all starts this Saturday, there's a lot to look forward to.

JERWIN ANCAJAS TOO MUCH FOR JAMIE CONLAN
By Scott Shaffer

Jerwin Ancajas TKO6 Jamie Conlan … Jerwin Ancajas of the Philippines took the fight to Northern Ireland, dominating brave but overmatched Jamie Conlan in Conlan’s hometown of Belfast.  Fighting in the  loaded 115-pound division, Ancajas (27-1-1) retained his IBF title with a sixth-round stoppage.  All in, there were four knockdowns by Ancajas, who had a point deducted for low punching. The penalty did not matter as, in round six, Conlan got caught on the side of the head which sent him once more to his knees. The referee quickly stopped it and Conlan didn’t argue the decision.  Afterwards, Conlan (now 19-1) tweeted, “Heartbroken about last night, really tough night at the office. Ancajas was a quality operator. Real privilege to be involved in such a great night of boxing, atmosphere was special. Very thankful for the support from everyone especially my family and team.” source: boxnation

FRAMPTON KNOCKED DOWN BUT WINS RING RETURN

Carl Frampton W10 Horacio Garcia… Northern Ireland hero Carl Frampton won a tougher-than-expected decision over Horacio Garcia in Belfast last night.  The former world featherweight champion had not fought since a January loss to Leo Santa Cruz, and the Mexican Garcia was not supposed to be quite as difficult a test for Frampton as he turned out to be.  Frampton started strong, but Garcia was always in the fight.  In round seven, Frampton got caught off balance and fell backward, a knockdown for Garcia. Frampton (24-1) went on to win by  unusual scores of 98-93, 97-93 & 96-93.  Garcia goes home with a record of 33-4-1 while Frampton will plan a British super fight with undefeated Josh Warrington. source: box nation

WILLIAMS TAKES DECISION OVER SMITH IN ACTION FIGHT
By G. Leon

Julian Williams W10 Julian Williams: Julian "J-Rock" Williams won a hard fought unanimous decision over former junior middleweight champion Ishe "Sugar Shay" Smith, in tonight's PBC main event on Bounce TV. Williams was dominant with his jab in the first round and swept each of the first four rounds on Boxingtalk's card. Round two was a close one and an accidental clash of heads opened up a cut on the side of Smith's left eye. For some reason Williams stopped using his jab and Smith began to have some very good moments in round five, as he was clearly building up momentum. Boxingtalk scored rounds, five, six and seven for Smith. Williams was hurt by a right hand counter in the seventh when Smith fell victim to another accidental clash of heads that stopped the action at the worst possible time for him, and opened up a deep cut on top of his left eyebrow. Williams regained control in round eight and clearly won the round. Boxingtalk scored the ninth for Smith and gave the final round to Williams, but both frames were close and could have gone either way. Official scores were wide at 99-91, 98-92, 97-93. Boxingtalk scored it 96-94. Source: Bounce TV

TETE MAKES OPPONENT GONYA IN 11 SECONDS!

Quickest KO ever in a world title fight

Zolani Tete KO1 Sibonisi Gonya...  Boxing history was made in Belfast, Northern Ireland as Zolani Tete rang up Sibonisi Gonya in just eleven seconds. Tete, the WBO bantamweight champion, knocked Gonya unconscious with his first punch of the fight, a right hook around Gonya's lazy jab. Gonya was out cold for minutes and had oxygen admimistered right in the ring. He appeared OK after a few minutes, though. Tete's win appears to be the quickest KO ever in a world title fight, shaving six seconds off Daniel Jimenez's 17-second embarrassment of Harald Geier in a 1994 WBO 122-pound title fight. Tete, perhaps the most avoided boxer in the sport, would love to unify with Belfast's Ryan Burnett, holder of the WBA and IBF championships, and offered to fight Burnett in Burnett's native Belfast. Will Burnett accept the challenge? Tete is now 26-3 compared to 11-2 for Gonya, who was coming off a quality win over Immanuel Naidjala. source: youtube

In round six, Dirrell ended up with a bad cut right above his left eye, and it was ruled to be from a headbutt. Blood poured into his eye and referee Frank Garza called up the doctor, who halted the bout on account of Dirrell's vision being impaired. source: pbc

The bout was easy to score, with all three officials turning in 100-90 scorecards. source: wbf

 DR. FERDIE PACHECO, 1927-2017

The New York Times is reporting the death of Dr. Ferdie Pacheco, who was nicknamed “the fight doctor” during his long career as Muhammad Ali's personal physician. Pacheco was 89 years old. Pacheco worked in the Great Ali’s corner for most of his career and became a Showtime and NBC boxing analyst. When Ali (then known as Cassius Clay) lost his temper at Sonny Liston during the weigh-in for their first fight in 1964,  Pacheco helped convince the commission doctor to disregard Ali's temporarily sky-high blood pressure. Without Pacheco's advocacy, Ali may not have been cleared to fight Liston, and the fight that changed the course of boxing history might have gone down differently. As Ali pressed on with brain-damaging fights in the late 1970s, Pacheco admirably urged Ali to retire and when Ali declined, Pacheco walked away rather than participate as a doctor in Ali's decline.  Boxingtalk sends its condolences to the friends and family of Dr. Ferdie Pacheco. --Scott Shaffer
