SOFT OPPONENT COMING UP FOR ADONIS STEVENSON

World light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson has tweeted the name of his next opponent.  "Fighting Tommy Karpency on September 11th in Toronto... He's gonna hurt."  Karpency is 25-4-1 and he does have a 2014 split-decision win over former world champion Chad Dawson to recommend him for a title shot. Karpency's four losses are to Rayco Saunders (which he avenged twice over), Andrez Fonfara, Karo Murat, and in Karpency's only title fight, a 2012 loss to then-WBO titlist Nathan Cleverly. After setting the boxing world on fire in 2013 with back-to-back dismantlings of Dawson and Tavoris Cloud, Stevenson's last four opponents have been Tony Bellew, Andrzej Fonfara (a respectable choice), Dmitry Sukhotsky and Sakio Bika (an ex-168-pound titlist).

 JUDGING THE JUDGES: PEREZ-CROLLA
By Doveed Linder

On July 18th, WBA lightweight title holder Darleys Perez (32-1-1, 20 KOs) kept his title via majority draw when he faced Anthony Crolla (29-4-3, 11 KOs) in Croll'a home nation, England.  Most observers felt that Crolla deserved the victory, especially because Perez was penalized two points for low blows.  However, the judges made the fight a majority draw, scoring it as as follows: Jose Roberto 113-113, John Poturaj 113-113, and Erkki Meronen 116-111 for Crolla.  The effect of the verdict was that Perez retained the title belt.

 GOLOVKIN-LEMIEUX UNIFICATION BOOKED FOR OCTOBER

According to the WBC, New York City's Madison Square Garden will host an October 17th middleweight unification bout between WBA champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) and new IBF titlist David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs). Golovkin is generally considered the best 160 pounder in the world but Miguel Cotto holds the world championship by reason of defating Sergio Martinez last year. (The WBC recognizes Cotto as champion and Golovkin as interim champion). Golovkin  has already made the American market sit up and take notice. This year, he's stopped Martin Murray and KO'd Willie Monroe.  Lemieux defeated Gabriel Rosado last December, then picked up the vacant IBF title by sending France's Hassan N'Dam to the canvas five times.

KOVALEV BEATS MOHAMMEDI EARLY
By Ben Dean

Sergey Kovalev TKO3 Nadjib Mohammedi... At the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev prevailed Nadjib Mohammadi to retain his titles.  Kovalev began the first round moving forward and establishing the jab.  Mohammedi attempted to move and box, but seemed to have a hard time finding the range.  Kovalev put Mohammedi down with a series of right hands in the second round with  Mohammedi rising at the count of nine. The challenger went down a couple of times from Kovalev pushes.  Another huge right hand buckled Mohammedi.  Referee Kenny Bayless warned Kovalev for roughhouse tactics. and Mohammedi survived the round.  In the third frame, Kovalev continued to stalk and land right hands.  Mohammedi attempted to move and landed some awkward counters, but they didn't appear to have much steam on them.  Kovalev landed a hard one two to the nose of Mohammedi, and he went down again.  The challenger rose to beat the count at nine, but this time Bayless did not like what he saw as he got up grabbing his face.  It could have been a broken nose or injury to the orbital bone.  The combination from Kovalev that sent Mohammedi down was a lead right hand, followed by stiff jab that seemed to badly damage Mohammedi.  Kovalev's power appears to be a frightening proposition for the light heavyweight division right now.  Future match ups may include a much talked about unification with gunshy world champion Adonis Stevenson, a rematch with Jean Pascal, possibly a match-up against new face Yunieski Gonzalez (whom many felt beat Pascal tonight), Russian-Canadian Artur Beterebiev or a mega pay-per-view event should super middleweight kingpin Andre Ward choose to move up and challenge Kovalev.  source: hbo

PASCAL DEFEATS GONZALEZ VIA DEBATABLE DECISION
By Ben Dean

Jean Pascal W10 Yunieski Gonzalez.. In Las Vegas, a pair of light heavyweights, Canadian-based Haitian Jean Pascal and Miami-based Cuban Yunieski Gonzalez squared off in an over-the-weight bout with Pascal weighing 178 and Gonzalez 177. Gonzalez landed early and often behind a stiff jab throughout the first four frames.  Pascal largely moved and boxed, looking to set up huge potshots from the outside.  Both fighters traded huge leather to close the fourth frame.  As the round progressed, both not only landed thunderous shots, they also showed world class chins in taking the others punches well.  Pascal largely got his foothold beginning in the fifth frame landing several huge punches.  Gonzalez seemed to buckle Pascal's legs in the sixth round.  However, as Gonzalez went in with reckless aggression, he was hanging his chin awfully high and Pascal connected on with huge flush shots.  Gonzalez looked slightly weary himself to end the fourth frame.  Pascal landed two huge bombs in the seventh frame.  Gonzalez was momentarily wobbled, but seemed to come right back, chasing Pascal down with some hard shots.  Gonzalez walked back to the corner appearing slightly fatigued to close the seventh frame.  Ramrod shotgun jabs were landed by Gonzalez as the eighth round began.  Pascal landed a sharp left hook upstairs, while Gonzalez responded and dug two hard uppercuts to the body.  Both men traded hard right hands to close the round.  The ninth round featured Gonzalez moving forward as Pascal circled looking to line up one huge knockout blow.  Both fighters fought on mostly even terms throughout the tenth frame.  Gonzalez largely outworked Pascal behind a stiff jab.  Pascal arguably landed the hard flashier punches of the bout and was rewarded on the official scorecards, 96-94, from all three judges.  The crowd booed the official decision lustily.  Gonzalez was distraught at the decision and burst into tears after the official verdict was read.  Gonzalez both out threw and out landed Jean Pascal.  Boxingtalk scored the bout 97-93 for Gonzalez. source: hbo Note: Jean Pascal is advised by Boxingtalk publisher Greg Leon.

SHUMENOV DECISIONS FLORES

Beibut Shumenov W12 BJ Flores... Beibut Shumenov proved to be a hard target for BJ Flores to find in the ring on Saturday in Las Vegas. It was a cat and mouse type of fight, where one fighter was defined by frustration and the other by fleetness of foot. Flores (31-2-1, 20 KOs) pressed the action all night against Shumenov (16-2, 10 KOs), who never stopped moving, much to the annoyance of Flores. “He ran all night,” Flores said afterwards. “You have to fight to win fights.” Shumenov won a unanimous decision, 116-112 on all three judges’ scorecards. source: premier boxing champions

MORE RESULTS FROM LAS VEGAS

Isiah Thomas W10 Jordan Shimmell... Michigan’s Jordan Shimmell and Isiah Thomas should have entered the ring in wrestling singlets instead of boxing trunks, such was the amount of grappling they engaged in on Saturday. Thomas (15-0, 6 KOs) was the main offender, consistently locking up Shimmell (19-1, 16 KOs) throughout the fight as Shimmell pressed him into the ropes, which he did often. Shimmell was the aggressor much of the night, consistently coming forward and working behind his jab while Thomas countered. Neither fighter got into much of an offensive rhythm, though. Shimmel outworked Thomas, but it was the latter who landed some of the hardest shots of the night. Thomas was the sharper, more accurate puncher, and though Shimmell threw more, he rarely landed more than one shot at a time. Thomas’ precision paid dividends as he earned a unanimous decision victory (99-91, 98-92, 97-93). 

Claudio Marrero KO3 Rico Ramos... In other action, 126-pounder Claudio Marrero (19-1, 14 KOs) scored a highlight-reel knockout of former WBA 122-pound titlist Rico Ramos (24-5, 12 KOs).  source for all results: premier boxing champions

 MIKEY GARCIA SIGNS WITH AL HAYMON; TOP RANK DEMANDS TO SEE THE CONTRACT
By Scott Shaffer

Former WBO 126- and 130-pound champion Mikey Garcia has not fought since January 2014.  Later that year, Garcia sued his promoter, Top Rank, Inc. claiming that even though Top Rank is a licensed boxing promoter, it also acted as Garcia’s boxing manager. If Garcia’s allegations are true, that would be a violation of federal law, namely the Muhammad Ali Act.  Top Rank denies that it acted as Garcia’s manager and, as part of the legal discovery process, it sought documents related to Garcia’s relationships with well-known managers Cameron Dunkin and Al Haymon.

 HEAVYWEIGHT ARRESTED WITH SEVEN POUNDS OF MARIJUANA
