HBO and Showtime Fight Results

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

It was a big night of boxing on Saturday, December 10, 2016 with bouts featured on both HBO and Showtime.

On HBO – from the Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska – WBC/WBO super lightweight champion Terence Crawford (30-0 / 21 by KO) stopped John Molina Jr. (29-7 / 23 by KO) in the eighth round. The bout was as one-sided as they come with Crawford winning every round up to the end when referee Mark Nelson stepped in to stop further punishment at 2:32 of the round. Crawford’s title was not at stake because Molina didn’t make weight.

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

There have been wizards in boxing, one that immediately comes to mind is the great Benny Leonard. But today, Vasyl Lomachenko is just that – a wizard in boxing!

On Saturday night at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Lomachenko (7-1 / 4 by KO) defended his WBO super featherweight title with a one-side seventh round stoppage over previously unbeaten Nicholas Walters (26-1-1 / 21 by KO).

Lomachenko, is a two two time Olympic gold medalist and a two division world champion as a professional.  He completely dominated the fight before the end came after seven rounds, with Walters calling it quits.

Kovalev and Ward ~ RECAP

Andre Ward eked out a controversial victory over Sergey Kovalev in a close fight but a fight that many at ringside felt he lost.  I personally had the fight 115-112 in favor of Kovalev but it is not a robbery that Ward won but you can make the case it was a stretch as Judges gave the benefit of doubt to Ward in many of the close rounds. 

Ward problem was two -old, the first being that he has not been as active as Kovalev and he was moving up in weight and the second that became obvious over the the first two rounds; he couldn’t match Kovalev in power as Kovalev piston like jab kept Ward off balanced and Ward had difficulty penetrating Kovalev’s defenses.  A straight right in the second round sent Ward down and he was down three points after the first two rounds.
