I may have thought that there were slim pickings last weekend but by the end of the week in the good ole, USA we got some fantastic action with cracking fights you can watch on playback.
Before that, on Saturday the 7th of September in Chihuahua Mexico the super featherweight title action for the WBC FECARBOX title between Miguel Roman and Tomas Rojas went on points over the full 12 rounds to Roman.
At home, in York Hall cruiserweight Wadi Camacho lost against Deion Jumah for the English title in 5 rounds by stoppage and now, having been unable to get the English title, it is hard to see where there is next for Camacho.
On the same night the British and Irish Boxing Association (BIBA) brought WBU title action to Bradford.
We had the super flyweight contest between Tasif Khan and Juan Lopez Martinez – who had a 17-8-0 record which was better than the original opponent who had a 25-5-1 record – and it went to Khan, unsurprisingly, with a 5th round stoppage. The super welterweight title between Sule Olagbade and Fouad El Massodi – who had a 17-11 record – unsurprisingly, went, on points, to Olagbade whilst the middleweight title between King Davidson and Fernando Castaneda – who had a 26-13-1 record – ended up, unsurprisingly, going to Davidson who had Castaneda cut in the 2nd and down in the 4th.
Last night, Friday the 13th of September things did get tremendously hot and boxing got a worthy card of action in the iconic Madison Square Gardens, New York. The WBO female title fight between Heather Hardy and Amanda Serrano for the featherweight title ended with a wide points win for Serrano. Serrano almost stopped Hardy in the first round but the very durable and brave, and up until last night unbeaten, Hardy, held on for the bell. The WBO belt, though was not to be hers to keep and now Serrano looks odds on for a Katie Taylor showdown soon.
Also, on the card was the return of the heavyweight Michael Hunter as he took a wide points win against Sergey Kuzmin for the WBA intercontinental title. He called out for Povetkin fight on the Joshua/Ruiz II undercard and that looks a really tasty fight.
Top of the bill was the interim WBC lightweight title fight between Devin Haney and Zaur Abdullaev. Haney was well above Abdullaev in quality and is now seeking a showdown with Vasily Lomachenko – I think Loma now has a very, very busy dance card… Abdullaev was pulled out by his corner after 4 rounds!
