Jaron Ennis, undefeated welterweight, faced his toughest test in Sergey Lipinets, the former 140 pound champion whose only loss was to Mikey Garcia. Ennis proved from the opening bell that he was the faster and sharper puncher. He moved seamlessly from southpaw to orthodox as he nailed Lipinets from every angle. Lipinets had faced some of the best fighters in his division and had a reputation with an iron clad chin 다운로드.
Ennis sent Lipinets down in the fourth even though replays showed Lipinets may have tripped on Ennis’ foot; but regardless, Ennis was getting the best of the round. The fight stopped in the sixth round as Ennis overwhelmed his opponent. Ennis showed that he might be close to the upper elites of the division as he displayed both power and mobility to get those power shots off 다운로드.
Joe Smith Jr 다운로드. won a tough majority decision over Maxim Vasilov. It was a close fight and Smith won the final two rounds and had Vasilov in trouble in the eleventh; but the previous three rounds, Vasilov looked like he had the fight in hand as he was boxing beautifully and connecting on combinations that opened a cut over Smith’s eye 다운로드. There were many at ringside that had Vasilov winning but it was a close, tough fight that could have been scored in favor of either fighter. The judges simply liked the more aggressive style of Smith. Now there will be a unification bout with Arthur Beterbiev and while some may want a Vasilov-Smith rematch, the bigger fight will be the unification bout Hdderase download. So Vasilov will have to wait for the winner of that one.
In Part 1 of “Boxing’s Unsung Heroes”, I referenced an article by Ted Sares Diffuse download. In his piece, Sares mentions a couple of Chicago guys, Anthony Ivory, and Alfredo “Freddy” Cuevas. Two tough pros who took on all comers. With an overall record of 26 wins – 10 losses -1 draw, in a career that spanned 13 years, Cuevas had KO wins over Charles Murray and Wilfredo Rivera 데몬 가상드라이브 다운로드. He came up short in bouts against Marco Antonio Rubio, Jermain Taylor, John Duddy, Santiago Samaniego, Kasim Ouma, Kingsley Ikeke, Michael Rask and he split a couple of bouts with fellow Chicagoan Anthony Ivory 대통령의 시간 다운로드.
Ivory’s Herculean record is a virtual “Who’s Who”. Boxrec lists his record as 32 wins – 78 Losses – 6 draws 초서체 다운로드. But in those 78 losses, he was stopped only 5 times. Ivory went the distance and lost decisions to the following future, or former, World Champions . Their records, at the time they fought Ivory, are in parenthesis: Kelly Pavlik (18-0), Yuri Foreman (12-0), Keith Holmes (36-3), Felix Sturm (6-0), Silvio Bronco (35-4-2), Mikkel Kessler (7-0), Sammy Serrano (49-6-1), Julio Cesar Vasquez (Twice 37-1 & 58-3), Davey Hilton (27-1-1), Carl Daniels (25-0), Simon Brown (35-2), Laurent Boudouani (18-1), Winky Wright (Twice 27-1 & 30-1), Chris Pyatt (42-4), Vincent Pettway (42-6-1), Hacine Cherifi (25-3-1), Diosbelys Hurtado (16-0), Akhmed Kotiev (twice 14-1 & 18-1), Armand Krajnc (15-0) and KO Artist Yori Boy Campas (52-0). A true globetrotter, Ivory fought in 15 different countries. This is a guy who knew how to survive in the ring…
Nice to see English boxer Martin Murray get some favorable publicity recently, in an article by Ted Sares 연속지적도 다운로드. Murray, previously featured on www.dmboxing.com is a real Pro 다운로드. What a career this guy has. His record stands at 39-6-1. In 46 pro fights he was stopped only once, by Triple G, in 2015, for G’s WBA, IBO & WBC Middleweight Titles. He dropped decisions against Sergio Martinez for the WBC World Middleweight Title, dropped a split decision to Arthur Abraham, in Germany, for the WBO World Super Middleweight Title and fought Felix Sturm to a highly controversial Draw, in Germany, with Sturm’s WBA Super World Middleweight Title on the line 5인의 탐정가 다운로드. He also lost a decision to Billy Joe Saunders, on December 04, 2020 in a bout for the WBO Super Middleweight Title. That’s five (5) shots at a world title and along the way he captured the WBA Interim World Middleweight Title java 첨부 파일 일괄. Hope I got all the alphabets right… but It doesn’t matter. This kid Murray can fight!
Unfortunately none of his fights have been on US soil 다운로드. For years Murray had been denied a US Visa, due to legal problems. I heard he finally was able to get things straightened out but, as of this date, he has yet to set foot in a US Ring. Perhaps he never will. The losers here have been the US fight fans, who never really got a chance to know Murray or see him fight in person. I sure wish this guy would have come up in Southern California!
