Press Release: Greg Cohen Promotions announced the signing of bantamweight Elton Dharry to a promotional contract.

However, since then, he is undefeated in 17 consecutive fights, dating back to 2010.

"I know most people would quit and walk away, but I had the self-belief and determination to come back and become something. I changed my team to (trainers) Martin Gonzales and Don Saxby and stopped taking short-notice fights."

 LUCAS BROWNE STILL MAINTAINING HIS INNOCENCE

Press Release: Australian heavyweight Lucas "Big Daddy" Browne, recently stripped of the WBA regular title due to a positiver drug test that he disputes, is upping the ante in his quest to clear his name. Browne has voluntarily enrolled in the WBC's Clean Boxing Program. Browne (24-0, 21 KOs) stopped Uzbekistan's Ruslan Chagaev in round ten last March in Grozny, Russia, to gain the WBA's secondary title. The dramatic victory, however, was nullified and Browne's championship stripped away and returned to Chagaev, after he reportedly tested positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol. Browne, who tested completely clean in a random drug test by VADA six days before the fight against Chagaev, staunchly maintains his innocence of purposefully taking any banned substance ever, and says he is taking steps to ensure he is never again accused of cheating.

This past Saturday, newly crowned undefeated IBO super-bantamweight world champion, Moises "Chucky" Flores (25-0, 17 KOs), received his belt from co-manager Henry Rivalta of Pro Box Management.  Last June, Flores scored an impressive unanimous decision victory over Paulus Ambunda (24-2, 10 KOs), in his home town of Windhoek, Namibia (Africa), to earn the world title strap. Flores, who is also the WBA interim champion, is now the mandatory challenger to face WBA super-champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs).  Both camps are in negotiations with the possibility of the fight happening in the next few months.  If the fight comes to fruition, both the WBA and IBO world title belts will be on the line.  After receiving his IBO world title belt, and a big fight looming with Rigondeaux, Flores speaks on his current situation. "Winning the IBO world championship is a testament to my hard work and the great team around me," said Mexico's Moises "Chucky" Flores. "Together we worked really hard to get this world title. I'm now the mandatory to challenge Guillermo Rigondeaux, a fight I'm looking forward to.  He's very skilled but I feel I have all the tools to defeat him.  My management team is working hard to get this fight finalized.  It's time to see who the best super-bantamweight is.  I going to bring that world title home to Mexico."

NIETO RETAINS EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Ruben Nieto TKO7 Nicolas Gonzales... Ruben Nieto of Spain retained his European 140-pound championship in Leganes, Madrid, by stopping previously unbeaten Nicolas Gonzalez after seven rounds. Nieto (18-1, 9 KOs) was defending the belt he won in England against Lenny Daws, and he did so in convincing fashion. Gonzalez (now 18-1, 13 KOs), like Nieto, hails from Madrid and their clash fulfilled the promised fireworks festival, with the Spanish fans standing on their feet for most of the action. Nieto started cautiously, probably aware of Gonzalez's power, but he was eventually able to floor his challenger in round three. Gonzalez did not give up, though, and retaliated by flooring the defending champ three rounds later. In round seven, however, Nieto raised his game and forced a stoppage when British ref Michael Alexander saved a defenseless Gonzalez from further punishment. source: press release

 CRAWFORD-POSTOL WRAP-UP
By Bill Dwyre

Press Release: Saturday night, in a Las Vegas boxing arena, in a big-time battle for future fame and riches, a Porsche took on a Ford Fairlane.  The result at the finish line was never in doubt.     "The Iceman" Viktor Postol, a nice 140-pounder from Kiev, Ukraine, with a title belt that said WBC, summarized his loss to Terence Crawford:  “He was too fast.  I had no answer for him.” Freddie Roach, a Hall-of-Fame trainer who had prepared Postol, seconded that summary:  “He surprised me how fast he was.” Crawford, from Omaha, Neb., is now [the world champion at 140 pounds],  with ownership of both Postol’s WBC belt and his own WBO.  In boxing, they call that title unification.  Also in boxing, they call what Crawford did to Postol, in front of 7,027 in the  MGM Grand Garden Arena here, a rout. [The claims of Eduard Troyanovsky and Ricky Burns, the IBF and WBA title holders are not really legitimate world championship claims].

[The WBA recognizes Juan Francisco Estrada as the super champion in this weight class]. Ioka let the younger Lara start aggressivley while effectively countering with precision shots to the head and body. Lara began slowing down in the middle rounds, which allowed Ioka, who was patiently biding his time, to press his advantage. Ioka began letting his hands go and landing combinations. Ioka dropped the challenger in round ten. Lara made it to his feet and was saved by the bell. The one-minute rest period was too little time to recover. Ioka jumped on Lara at the start of the eleventh and again he hit the deck. Referee Eddie Claudio administered the count, but Lara was down and out.
