Image result for abner mares vs jesus cuellarLast night on ShowTime Championship Boxing, Abner Mares (30-2-1, 15 KO’s) defeated Jesus Cuellar (28-2, 21 KO’s), and captured the WBA Featherweight title.  This was potentially Mares’ last opportunity to capture a title, and he delivered in exciting fashion.  The first round was all fire works, as both men came out swinging for the fences, trying to dispense of the other man early.  Cuellar got the best of Mares in the beginning of the fight, takin 3 of the first 4 rounds on my score card.  Mares found the adjustment to Cuellar’s attack however, in the form of the straight right hand.

Cuellar was trying to push the action after the 4th round, and every time he leaned in with the left hook, Mares would counter with the right.  Mares had to calm down and not get into a brawl with Cuellar, who by nature is a brawler, and that it exactly what he did.  Sharp counters from Mares slowed the pace a bit and gave the better boxer (Mares) the advantage.  Mares’ punches were quicker and more accurate from the middle of the fight on, and totally took the bullying mentality away from Cuellar.  In the 11th round, Mares was able to drop Cuellar to the Canvas, and if it was close on any scorecard, the knockdown put the fight out of reach for Cuellar.  Im not quite sure how it ended in a split decision, because Mares definitively won the fight.  Kermit Bayless scored the fight 115-112 for Cuellar (which was totally bogus), while Dave Moretti scored it 116-111 for Mares and Max Deluca scored it 117-110 for Mares.

Also Jermall Charlo (25-0, 19 KO’s) defeated Jullian Williams (22-1-1, 14 KO’s) by 5th round KO.  Charlo hit Williams with a vicious uppercut which put him down, and knocked him out with a hook later in the round to retain his IBF Junior Middleweight title.

Brook VS Dan isn’t the only thing going on tomorrow night.  Showtime will also present a WBC World Tiltle bout.  Jhonny Gonzalez will defend his WBC Featherweight Championship against the slick boxing skills of Gary Russell Jr.  Classic case of boxer versus puncher.  Who will come out on top?

JHONNY GONZALEZ

-Record:  57 – 8 – 0 (48 KO’s)

-Weight Class:  Featherweight

-Height:  5′ 7″

-Reach:  69″

-Notable Fights:

  • Jackson Asiku – Win, TKO 6th round, 9/15/10.  (Won IBO Featherweight Tilte)
  • Hozumi Hasegawa – Win, TKO 4th round, 4/8/11.  (Won WBC Featherweight Title)
  • Abner Mares – Win, TKO 1st round, 8/24/13.  (Won WBC Featherweight Title)

Jhonny Gonzalez was the underdog against Abner Mares in their fight.  He shocked the world with first round knockout and took the WBC Featherweight title away from Mares.  This will be his third consecutive title defense and it will be a tough one.  He will be taking on a young and very talented boxer with great speed and technical ability.

GARY RUSSELL JR

-Record:  25 – 1- 0 (14 KO’s)

-Weight Class:  Featherweight

-Height:  5′ 5″

-Reach:  61″

-Notable Fights

  • Miguel Tamayo – Win, KO 4th round, 1/30/14
  • Vasyl Lomachenko – Loss, MD 12 rounds, 6/21/14.  (For vacant WBO Featherweight Title)

Gary Russell Jr is a very slick fighter that understands the game extremely well.  He has great hand speed and his combinations are quite impressive for a fairly young fighter.  Russell is only 26 years old and this will be his second crack at a world title.  Whether or not he can get it done, still remains to be seen.  He is going to have to win this on the scorecards, which he is capable of doing, and h has to watch out for that knockout punch from Gonzalez.

-David Jukic, INSIDE RINGSIDE

Well, it seems that I was dead wrong about the outcome of this fight.  I must say up until this point I was not a huge fan of Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KO’s).  The reason being is that I’m not impressed by the “hold with one arm and punch with the other” style that Khan seems to utilize in every fight.  I thought that Devon Alexander (26-3, 14 KO’s) was the better boxer, which is why I gave him the slight edge.  This fight was nothing what I expected from it.  Khan out boxed and out slugged Alexander thru 12 hard fought rounds.

Amir Khan and Devon Alexander both, have been classified as “boring boxers”.  This was not the case at all this past Saturday night.  Amir Khan showed that he is not only a very good pure boxer, but can also turn up the heat and fight.  He pretty much dominated the first 7 or 8 rounds.  It was only then, when Alexander knew he was headed towards a decision loss, that he turned up the heat and started becoming more aggressive.  Apparently, he should have been doing that all along, as he did look a lot better in a few of the late rounds.

This was a make or break fight for Khan, and he really stepped up to the plate and delivered a home run.  Khan has it in the back of his mind that a showdown with Floyd Mayweather is still possible.  If he lost this fight, that door would shut for good.  On the flip side, Devon Alexander was destroyed by Shawn Porter, and in my opinion, is not the same fighter.  Confidence and desperation were the keys to victory in this one, and obviously Amir Khan felt them both more.

Thurman Defeats Bundu

What was thought to be the potential most exciting fight of the night, turned out to be the exact opposite.  One day after calling out Floyd Mayweather with the quote “burn money 2015”, Keith Thurman (24-0, 1NC, 21 KO’s) needed a strong performance (knockout) to make his bid at the pound for pound king.  Thurman did not deliver, even tho he won every round.  He fought a great fight, but we are just so used to seeing him knock everyone out.  Give a lot of credit to Bundu, he’s got an iron chin.  It was a completely one sided victory for Thurman, but no KO.

Victor Is Vicious Again

Victor Ortiz came out with a bang.  Everyone thought he was done for good after the broken jaw, the movie role, and the Dancing With The Stars.  Ortiz was out to prove everyone wrong, and he succeeded with a truly vicious 3rd round TKO of Manny Perez.

Results:

  • Abner Mares – def – Jose Ramirez – via – TKO 5rd
  • Jermall Charlo – def – Lenny Bottai – via – KO 3rd
  • Jermell Charlo – def – Mario Lozano – via – UD

-David

If you are looking for an action packed night, December 13th, 2014 will be it.  The venue, MGM GRAND Las Vegas Nevada, where Amir Khan (29-3, 19 KO’s) takes on Devon Alexander (26-2, 14 KO’s) for the WBA International and WBC Silver Welterweight titles.  This will also be co-headlined by Keith Thurman VS Leonard Bundu, and Demitrius Andrade VS Jermell Charlo.

Amir Khan is a very good boxer.  Some say he is over rated, but this is the most attention he has gotten in a while.  I think even more then when the Mayweather rumors were flying around.  This is a must win for Khan, if he wants to stay in the mix for a potential showdown with the pound-forpound king!  Can Amir Khan handle the pressure?

Devon Alexander is also a very skilled boxer, so similar styles are clashing here.  The outcome of this fight, which will be very close and competitive, will depend on the mental toughness of each fighter.  In this category, I believe that Devon Alexander has the slight edge, as Amir Kahn has been known to crack under pressure and Alexander known to thrive.  Amir Khan defeated Zab Judah on July 23rd 2011 via KO in the 5th round.  He then proceeded to take a step up in class to fight Lamont Peterson, which he lost to by split decision, and then Danny Garcia who Knocked him out in the 4th round.  On the other hand, Alexander lost to Timothy Bradley, who is a great fighter, and then went on to defeat Lucas Matthysse and Marcos Maidana via decision.  Coming off of his first career loss to Bradley, Alexander was able to defeat not 1, but 2 really good fighters after that.  If thats not mental toughness, i don’t know what is.  It will be very close, and i could be wrong, but i give the slight edge to Devon Alexander in this fight.
