Vusi Malinga-Leo Santa Cruz

Saturday, June  2, 2012

SHOWTIME FOUR FIGHT CARD NOT ALL THAT MUCH!

Los Angeles, CA- Leo Santa Cruz, (117 lbs), Lincoln Heights, CA UD 12 Vusi Malinga, (117), Johannesburg, South Africa. (IBF 118 lb title). If Cruz’s (20-0-1, 11 KOs) number of punches  thrown, an incredible 1350, didn’t impress his control over the not as busy Malinga (20-4-1, 12 KOs) nothing will.  Almost a shutout as two cards were 120-108 and the third read 119-109.

TROUT PREVAILS IN A “NON-BARNBURNER”

Austin Trout, (154), Las Cruces, NM UD 12 Delvin Rodriguez, (151), Danbury, CT. (WBA 154 lb title). Trout (25-0, 14 KOs) and Rodriguez (26-6-3, 14 KOs) had as much action in it as a race of snails in this snoozer.  The decision was 117-111, 118-110 and 120-108. 

‘WINKY” WRIGHT BEATEN INTO RETIREMENT


Peter Quillin, (160.25), Brooklyn, NY UD 10 Winky Wright, (159), Saint Petersburg, FL. Quillin (27-0, 20 KOs) dropped a returning Wright (51-6-1, 25 KOs) in the fifth.  Hurting him again on several occasions but couldn’t stop him.  Scores were 97-92 and 98-91 twice. 

TARVER GETS DRAW IN YAWNER

Antonio Tarver, (198), Tampa, FL SD Draw 12 Lateef Kayode, (199), Hollywood, CA. Tarver (29-6-1, 20 KOs) looking every bit of his 43 years of age until something in round six clicked against Kayode (18-0-1, 14 KOs).  The next several rounds were all Tarver, but Kayode came on strong in the championship rounds.  Scores were 114-114 and 115-113 for each fighter, a good decision.

FOX DEPORTES 

Las Vegas, NV- Beibut Shumenov, (174.5), Las Vegas, NV UD 12 Enrique Ornelas, (174.5), La Habra, CA. (WBA 175 lb title). Shumenov (13-1, 8 KOs) was on top of Ornelas (33-8, 21 KOs) from the opening bell until the final bell.  Scores were 120-108 on all cards. Shumenov was given “gift” SD 12 win over Gabriel Campillo in 2010, the same fighter who was robbed earlier this year against Tavoris Cloud. In the minds of many, Campillo is the best light heavyweight in the world.

Bethlehem, PA-  Gabriel Rosado, (154), Philadelphia, PA TKO 9 Sechew Powell, (150.75), Brooklyn, NY. Rosado (20-5, 12 KOs) stepped it up a notch in stopping Powell (26-5, 15 KOs) after nine good rounds of back and forth trading of blows, with Rosado getting the better of the exchanges.  Time was 2:43. 

Ronald Cruz, (147), Bethlehem, PA UD 12 Prenice Brewer, (147), Cleveland, OH. Cruz (17-0, 12 KOs) did everything to Brewer (16-2-1, 6 KOs) except hurt him in front of a raucous crowd.  Brewer was never in control as the cards of 118-110 all around indicated.  Brewer wasn’t in agreement.

  1. What a snoozefest Showtime had…..

  2. Ace/1200…Totally agree..Expected more from the Showtime card. The Wright/Quillin fight had its moments, but for the most part the fights were not barnburners by any means. Thought the Tarver decison was right on and I had it a draw as well Still, can’t blame Showtime. I applaud them for putting on a four fight card on what was deemed to be competitive matches. Peace.

  3. After all the trash talk between Kayode and Tarver, I expected some fireworks. Wrong.
