Comments Off on Salita Strikes Again, as ‘Detroit Brawl’ Leaves Motown Boxing Fans Breathless

Promoter Dmitriy Salita and his matchmaker, Dennis Turner, did it again tonight (Saturday, November 12) with their latest “Detroit Brawl” at the Masonic Temple in Downtown Detroit, as they put on another terrific night of fights.  The left side of the bout sheet is never a haven on a Salita show and tonight was another example of that. In the six-round bantamweight main event, Detroit’s undefeated James “OG” Gordon Smith (11-0, 6 KOs) put on another of his typical performances, meaning he was in a back-and-forth slugfest, this time against a battle tank made in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, named Olim “The Muslim Warrior” Nazarov (14-3, 8 KOs). With all the trimmings of a Smith fight: momentum changes and bombs landing to the “oohs and ahhs” of the crowd, Smith managed to outwork Nazarov on Read more […]

Comments Off on Team Commey disappointed with decision, demand rematch

Ghanaian lightweight star Richard Commey was left bitterly disappointed following the decision to his vacant IBF World title fight with Robert Easter Jr last Friday at the Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania.  The 29 year-old from Accra found himself on the wrong end of a split decision, with judges John McKaie (114-113) and Craig Smith (113-114) separating the fighters by a single point, and Ron McNair (112-115) giving the home fighter a three point lead, despite a close fight and Commey scoring an eighth-round knockdown. Commey’s team will now be launching an appeal to the IBF asking that they grant the former Commonwealth and IBF Intercontinental Champion an immediate rematch. ‘’I feel I won the fight, I came to my opponent’s country with everything in his favour Read more […]

Comments Off on New WBF Champions: Vovk Shocks Tita, Kindele Out-Fights Kabongo – Press Release/WBF

It was an evening of mixed fortunes for the local favourites on Sunday, September 11, at the Hall Omnisport in Rebecq, Belgium. Two World Boxing Federation (WBF) titles were on the line, but only one of them stayed in Belgium when the night was over.  Fighting for the vacant WBF Intercontinental Welterweight title, Cedric Tita got off to a good start in his encounter with Ukrainian-born Polish banger Mykola Vovk, and in the first three rounds he continuously befuddled the visitor with nice movement and fast punching. But in the fourth round, after suffering a cut eye, Tita made the mistake of standing in front of Vovk to trade punches, which suited his opponent better than it did him. Vovk started to take over, and was soon in control of the fight and putting on the pressure. With hard Read more […]
