On March 29, 2014 (Atlantic City, NJ) Sergey Kovalev faced another undefeated fighter in Cedric Agnew for the WBO light heavyweight championship. Kovalev could have been forgiven for overlooking Agnew since he had bigger fights in mind. Agnew may have been undefeated but no one gave him much of a chance.

With NO fights scheduled during the Christmas holiday, here’s a real treat - a fight that most fight fans missed. Fight took place in Laredo, Texas on August 17, 2013 and was originally televised on the Spanish speaking station UniMas.
Former lightweight champion Juan “The Baby Bull” Diaz takes on Brazilian boxer Adailton DeJesus in a non-stop action packed fight. I think all (be sure to check out the left hooks to liver thrown by Diaz – awesome) boxing fans will enjoy!
On December 6, 2013, the Chumash Casino, in Santa Ynez, California showcased a terrific night of boxing. The entire card was filled with action and it was the night that Henry Calles won his light-heavyweight rematch (vs. Zlatko Ledic ) by a four round unanimous decision.
Calles won three of the four rounds on my card (39-37 on points) as I viewed the fight at ringside working his corner.
At the opening bell, Calles came out on fire and twice came close to a first round knockout, winning that round big. He won rounds two and three, but there was concern about midway in round three, as Calles seemed to fade with his stamina. I would attribute that to maybe being over-trained, leaving the peak of his fitness in the gym. Just a week before the fight he was so pumped up that he stated “I’m so fired up I almost kicked my office door down today” which leads me to believe this was the case why Calles had his lapse in conditioning.
Here’s a news video report on Santa Barbara boxer Henry Calles. This story aired Sunday night on KEYT-TV news. Great job by Senior Reporter John Palminteri of KEYT. See you at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez this Friday for the bout!
