Ryan Garcia pounded Javier Fortuna as he scored knockdowns in the fourth and fifth rounds before finishing the fight in the sixth round 정글플래셔 다운로드. This was a complete demolition as Garcia took control of the fight from the opening bell. As the stats show, Garcia landed more punches as the fight progressed 다운로드.

Garcia landed twice the punches and his power was on parade 슬렌더맨 게임 다운로드. Now for the big fight that everyone wants to see: Ryan Garcia and Gervonta “Tank” Davis. This past fight was supposed to be the stepping stone to the fight with Davis 다운로드. Davis won his last two fights against Rolando Romero with a sixth-round stoppage and both fighters are a good draw. Davis sold out Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and attracted 15,000 in the Crypto.com Arena, as local fighter Garcia attracted a little over 11,000.

Carlos Ortiz (R.I.P.)


David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

On June 13, 2022 the boxing world lost a great champion 스파크 다운로드. Carlos Ortiz passed away at the age of 85. He was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, on September 9, 1936.

Ortiz began his outstanding professional career in 1955 with a first round knockout over Harry Bell in New York 다운로드.

He suffered his first loss losing to Johnny Busso via 10 round split decision on June 27, 1958. Ortiz was 21 years old and held an undefeated ring record of 26-0 entering that bout 안드로이드 한영사전 다운로드. Three months later in September, Ortiz reversed his loss with a convincing 10 round decision win. Both Busso fights were held at Madison Square Garden, New York 다운로드.

After posting a ring record of 29 wins, 2 losses, and one no-decision, Ortiz met Kenny Lane for the vacant junior welterweight / super lightweight title in New York on June 12, 1959 다운로드. Lane had given Ortiz a 10 round loss prior, on December 31, 1958, but this time Ortiz would win by knockout after two rounds to become the second Puerto Rican world champion since Sixto Escobar did it more than thirty years before.

In 1960, Ortiz defended his 140 pound title twice, knocking out Battling Torres and taking a 15 round decision over Duilio Loi. Also in 1960, Ortiz and Loi met in a rematch and Ortiz lost a 15 round decision. Ortiz and Loi fought their rubber match on May 10, 1961, with Loi winning a 15 round decision.

In 1962, Ortiz moved down in weight to lightweight and challenged champion Joe Brown. On April 21, Ortiz won a 15 round decision over Brown to win his second world title, and I remember it well, watching the fight on TV with my father on that Saturday evening.

씨프 하트 다운로드

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA)

George Kambosos and Delvin Haney were both undefeated and the winner would walk away as the unified title holder in the lightweight division with four belts.  Both opponents were excellent defensive fighters and not easy to hit, and this was an even fight between two very good fighters. 

The first round saw both fighters feel each other out and there were minor differences between the two fighters, but I gave the round to Kambosos on the strength of him landing 8 punches to 5 punches for Haney; and in the second half of the round, Kambosos landed the best punch with a solid right-hand counter which gave this round to Kambosos as well.  Haney had yet to establish a rhythm 역전 재판 1 다운로드.

Haney started to land solid shots in the second half of the third round and this continued into the fourth round and the fifth round as he used his jab to disrupt Kambosos’ attack.  The sixth round was close as both fighters landed a couple of good combinations and Kambosos may have won the sixth round.  At the halfway point of the fight, I had it 57-57 다운로드.

Haney’s jab won both the seventh and eighth round and his defensive skills allowed him to avoid Kambosos’ haymakers.  The seventh round was Haney’s best at this point in the fight as he used his jab to set up two nice combinations.  After the eighth round Kambosos’ corner looked worried as did much of the crowd of nearly 50,000 fans who showed up for their favorite fighter.  This was the biggest bout in Australia in decades and the hometown Kambosos was behind 다운로드.

Gervonta Davis Stops Rolando Romero – 6th Round … Lara Over O’Sullivan

By Tom Donelson / Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA) and contributor to dmboxing.com since 2008

Gervonta Davis faced Rolando Romero in a battle of undefeated lightweight sluggers and while this fight was hardly a spectacle for the first five rounds, Gervonta knockout punch of Romero in the sixth was enough to satisfy the PPV price 하이시에라 직접 다운로드.

The first round was a feeling around in which I gave to Davis, barely but both fighters did little.  Davis landed 4 punches versus 2 punches for Romero 다운로드. Over the next two rounds Romero landed the best punches.  In the fourth round, there were no real clean punches landed and could have gone either way Nanumgothic download. I gave it to Romero but like all of the rounds up to this point, it could have been score either way.  The score on my score card was 39-37 for Romero 다운로드.

The fifth-round saw Davis landing the cleaner punches, but no one got hurt from any punch landed.  Going into the sixth round, Davis was behind on my card 48-47 but it could have been easily reversed but Davis made the scoring irrelevant 다운로드.

Romero came forward and lunged at Davis with a right hand but missed and Davis countered with a perfect short left that sent Romero down. Romero stood up but on unsteady legs and as he wobbled toward the referee, the referee stopped the fight.

Rodolfo Gonzalez

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com  

When people ask me who are some of the nicest boxers that I have personally met – not in any particular order – the first group of fifteen that come to mind are Sugar Ray Robinson, George Foreman, Danny Lopez, Bobby Chacon, Ernie Terrell, Johnny Tapia, Diego Corrales, Jerry Quarry, Mando Ramos, Ruben Olivares, Matthew Saad Muhammad, Eddie Perkins, Vernon Forrest, and Ken Buchanan … but I must not leave out one other – Rodolfo “El Gato” Gonzalez Select2 download.

Gonzalez, the former WBC lightweight champion, is truly a gentleman. I was honored to be his presenter at his induction into the World Boxing Hall of Fame on October 18, 2003 피고인 1회 다운로드.

Gonzalez was actually born on a small farm owned by his grandparents near Tepatitlan Los Altos de Jalisco, Mexico on December 16, 1945 다운로드. He is one of eight children born to Florencio and Maria Luz Gonzalez. The family moved to Guadalajara when Rodolfo was a young child.

Growing up, Gonzalez had aspirations of becoming a bull fighter, El Matador, but that changed to boxing when he became intrigued with his boxer-cousin Jose Becerra, who was an outstanding bantamweight champion 다운로드.

With no amateur status, he started his professional career in November 1959, just six weeks shy of his 14th birthday, against less than moderate competition in Mexico 다운로드. A southpaw and tremendous body puncher, he won 51 of his first 52 bouts, all but one by knockout.

On February 15, 1963, in making his U.S. debut, he lost to Licho Guerrero in Los Angeles by tenth round stoppage.

That loss would become the start of the dark side of his career, not fighting again for nearly 3 years. Soon after the fight, he was diagnosed with liver cancer.

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA)

Gervonta “Tank” Davis moved up to junior welterweight to challenge the undefeated Mario Barrios for Barrios’ title.  Davis, who has won titles in the junior lightweight and lightweight divisions, found himself fighting a naturally bigger fighter and Barrios’ size proved a hinderance in the early rounds as he faced trouble getting inside Barrios 다운로드.

Barrios used his jab effectively to keep Davis away from him and Davis found himself behind on most observers’ cards going into the second half of the fight.  Showtime had him down 59-55 and I had the fight at 58-56 in favor of Barrios 다운로드.

On June 4, 2012, at the age of 87, Enrique Bolanos, top lightweight contender, passed away.  I never saw him fight, but had the pleasure of meeting him and his lovely wife Ruby at various boxing venues.  According to people I know that saw him fight, he was a magnificent boxer that packed southland arenas and stadiums in the Los Angeles area like no other in the golden era of boxing (the 40’s and 50’s) 다운로드.

He engaged in over 100 bouts, winning 79, and fought all the best boxers of his time. Some of the top fighters he faced were Manuel Ortiz, Chalky Wright, Ike Williams, Jackie Wilson, Joey Barnum, John Thomas, Art Aragon, Maxie Docusen, Jimmy Carter, and Paddy DeMarco.

Benny Leonard vs. Rocky Kansas / Lightweight Championship and RECAP

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

As many of my faithful readers and friends know, my greatest lightweight of all time and #2 greatest boxer “pound for pound” of all time is Benny Leonard 탱고음악 다운로드.

At the height, peak, prime, pinnacle of his career he was flawless. His boxing mechanics in the ring – feints, ducks, sidesteps, and hooks – were textbook, with a terrific left-hand piston jab which he used to perfection 울타리 3.5 다운로드. He fought over two hundred fights and suffered only four knockouts, three early in his career and the fourth in his final fight.

Leonard, nicknamed “The Ghetto Wizard”, was similar to Sugar Ray Robinson in the fact that he had no significant weaknesses 다운로드.

Benny Leonard (Benjamin Leiner) was born in New York City on April 7, 1896. As a young kid he engaged in many street fights, gang related, in the neighborhood where he grew up 문명의 시대 아시아 다운로드. He made his professional debut on October 14, 1911 when he was just fifteen years old. Benny took the name Leonard after his true name, Leiner, was pronounced incorrectly several times; but most importantly, he made the change because he didn’t want his parents to know he was a fighter 다운로드.

The Greatest Lightweights of All Time

By David Martinez / Boxing Historian / dmboxing.com

Over the many years that I have rated fighters in either different weight divisions or from their born countries, this 135 pound weight class is most likely the closest in overall talent 스위치 디아블로3 다운로드.

My usual format is ranking the top dozen (12) with a select group of honorable mentions, but in this division I will rank my top twenty (20) great lightweights 최신 코덱 다운로드.

My rating of boxers is based on the height, peak, prime, pinnacle of their careers as I see fit.  Who-beats-whom at different stages of their careers isn’t a factor in my “pound for pound” formula 다운로드.

There are many situations where one fighter loses to another, and I actually rate the losing fighter with a higher “pound for pound” ranking 코믹 메이플스토리 다운로드.

Some classic examples of my method are, and these are fighters that lost twice to their opponents: Gene Tunney beating Jack Dempsey, Sandy Saddler beating Willie Pep, Jim Jeffries beating Bob Fitzsimmons, Evander Holyfield beating Mike Tyson, Aaron Pryor beating Alexis Arguello, Rafael Herrera beating Ruben Olivares, Iran Barkley beating Tommy Hearns, Oscar De La Hoya beating Julio Cesar Chavez, Riddick Bowe beating Evander Holyfield, Fighting Harada beating Eder Jofre, and it goes on Netbus download!

Lopez by Unanimous Decision over Lomachenko

By Tom Donelson / Author, Member Boxing Writers Association of America, and well respected contributor to dmboxing.com since 2008

There was the fight in the ring and then there was the fight on the scorecards 다운로드. When Teofimo Lopez Jr. and Vasiliy Lomachenko faced each other to decide the official undisputed lightweight championship of the world, the fight in the ring was close and, in the view of many, decided in the final round 다운로드. I had Lopez up by a 115-113 score, but it could have been 114-114 or 115-113 in favor of Lomachenko. Yes, it was close, and certainly closer than the scorecards indicated acdsee pro 8 다운로드.

When Lopez and Lomachenko faced off in this unification bout, the opening rounds saw Lopez control the fight with his jabs followed by body shots.  The first half of the fight was a tactical fight with Lopez dominating the action 다운로드.

The biggest shock was that Lopez not only kept his composure, but that he also managed to out-box the master boxer, Lomachenko.  He used his jab to keep Lomachenko off balance and used uppercuts and straight rights to the body.  After the sixth round, ESPN had the fight 59-55 and I had it 60-54 in favor of Lopez.  It was hardly a great fight but a tactical fight which Lopez was winning webm 파일.
